I am not asking you to donate to this Group and I am not running down anyone. As we ourselves are poor crippled up, older ones , spending our extra time, trying to help the voiceless ones in this World ourselves. I have relied on free blogs, paid by business adds, Thank You!!!!!!. But Heck, I even have a paid site that is not even working correctly ! lol That was a funny …. a total waste of money! Not a wise choice, let me say! A lesson learned for sure!
So I looked at this Group on line. To see — what are the ages of the real owners behind it or who works behind the scenes. Are they really all over 50 years of age? About…… http://www.aarp.org/about-aarp/
As with barely getting by myself, $5 or $10 is a lot of money to me! They ask for money all the time to fight all these Political Wars over every law passed. I guess it is to cover costs of …. paper, ink, computer parts, mail costs, phone bills, travel etc. ?????? So I can see that in working as a Group, if they really are all over 50 years of age, those are needs for the ones doing all the up front work. I can not see paying out for younger ones. If making a business off of older ones. No way!
So I was just taking a closer look. As I think,What? More money? Where are you guys getting your extra $$ yourselves, to do all this? Thanks for all the hard work, if it really is helping. Or is it just our voices and votes that are helping the causes?
Thought I would share my thoughts on this part/ chapter of ones life.
|We’re still 391 people short of our goal of 2,500 donors to ramp up our campaign to protect Social Security.
This is a fight we have to win.
Cutting Social Security to fix a deficit it didn’t cause isn’t just unfair. It’s dangerous.
But it’s exactly what some senators are discussing as they prepare a bill that targets Social Security to balance the budget.
AARP knows just how dangerous these cuts would be for millions of current and future older Americans, and we’re not going to hold back in our fight to protect Social Security.
From targeted ads and phone calls to letters to Congress and meetings with key legislators, we’ll do whatever it takes to protect Social Security’s earned benefits.
____, can we count on you to stand with us and help protect Social Security?
Congress should be focusing on what really caused the deficit, but instead some senators are working on a bill that could include big cuts to the Social Security benefits seniors have relied on for 75 years.
That’s why we’ve launched an all-out campaign to protect Social Security – running powerful ads to educate the public and driving phone calls and letters to key members of Congress that make it clear we’re counting on them to defend Social Security, not cut it.
But to keep Social Security strong for today’s seniors and generations to come, we need you to join the fight.
Thank you for standing with AARP to keep Social Security strong.
