    Read the questions AARP needs to answer to the Senate? Brutal!

    How dare you write that sentence?!

    The plans are offered to 50-64, not seniors. I won't allow you to call people in that age group seniors.

    I'd respond more but I need to grab my cane and get to the bathroom and take my teeth out of the cup.

    What's interesting is they did an investigation and 2 out of 3 AARP agents only offered the limited plans. Will be interesting to see how it plays out however AARP already suspended sales.

    Forgive him.

    John has not crossed into the golden years yet and still considers anyone over 40 . . . old . . .

    He probably thinks (or perhaps wishes) I had one foot in the grave.

    Does AARP include discounts on Viagra? If so, I might have to join. Gotta keep up with my young (only 57) wife.

    I turned 50 this year, but I refuse to join AARP. Maybe in a few years, when I'm bent over, spitting, and talking nonsense.

    Note: This post creates an "opening." That is...the chance for someone to post a comment insinuating that I am doing those things now.
