It’s the weekend and so I have less readers. That means I like to post a wide variety of things on the weekend. The following came to my email and I laughed so hard I couldn’t help but post it. Enjoy!

So you’re a senior citizen and the government says no health care for
you, what do you do?

Our plan gives anyone 65 years or older a gun and 4 bullets. You are
allowed to shoot 2 senators and 2 representatives. Of Course, this
means you will be sent to prison where you will get 3 meals a day, a
roof over your head, and all the health care you need! New teeth, no
problem. Need glasses, no problem. New hips, knees, kidney, lungs,
heart? All covered.

And who will be paying for all of this? The same government that just
told you that you are too old for health care. Plus, because you are
a prisoner, you don’t have to pay income tax anymore.
IS THIS A GREAT COUNTRY OR WHAT?!
