Ryan Tells His Medicare Plans to Oldsters. They Boo.

Ryan Tells His Medicare Plans to Oldsters. They Boo.

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan spoke to the national AARP convention on Friday about his plans to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. “The first step to a stronger Medicare is to repeal Obamacare, because it represents the worst of both worlds,” he said. In response, the jolly gathering of grandparents booed the pompous little twerp. He went on to propose privatizing Medicare and giving seniors healthcare coupons. He was heckled by an audience old enough to remember the that same plan was pushed 12 years ago by another Republican financial genius, George W. Bush. You know, the GOP MBA President who crashed the world economy. Hey, Paul Ryan’s running mate is a Harvard MBA too!

Barbie’s Big Birthday

 Barbie's Big Birthday

Barbara Millicent Roberts, better known as Barbie, was born at the International Toy Fair in New York on March 9, 1959. Today the youthful-looking Pisces celebrates her 50th birthday with several million of her closest gal pals in the biggest single event of Women’s History Month.  

Barbie has undoubtedly received a birthday card from AARP announcing her eligibility for membership and inviting her to join. Barbie never formally retired from any of her 108 occupations, but AARP doesn’t stand for “American Association of Retired Persons” anymore. It stands for “AARP.”
