Lets hope this creates awareness. Things will change when this kind of thinking Translates into voting results at the polls --
As of now -- seniors out number ANY OTHER type of voter.
By race - religion - or age ---
When are seniors going to wake up and understand they have the
Power to shape legislation all they need is the will power to do so.
POLITICIANS PLEASE PAY ATTENTION!
‘Entitlement’, I paid cash for my Old Age Security and CPP!!!! Just because they borrowed the money, doesn't make my benefits some kind of charity or handout !! Gold plated MP pensions and Civil Service Government benefits, aka free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, 20 weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days, now that's welfare, and they have the nerve to call me a 'greedy senior' and my retirement, an ‘entitlement’!
What is wrong
WAKE UP CANADA !!!
Someone please tell me whats wrong with the people that run this country!
We're "broke" & can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless.
The government spent 1.2 billions of our dollars for G-20 events!
In the last few months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile , and Turkey . And now Khanistan , Pakistan ...... Home of bin Laden. Literally, billions of our dollars
Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour Hundreds of millions of dollars and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries!
They call Old Age Security and Healthcare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives and now when it’s time for us to collect, the government is running out of money. Why did the government borrow from it in the first place?
We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans.
CANADA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, hospitals being closed, average income families who can't afford dental care, elderly going without 'needed' meds and having to travel 100's of miles for medical care with no reimbursement of cost, vehicles we can't afford gas for, lack of affordable housing, and mentally ill without treatment.
They have a 'Benefit' for the people of Haiti ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents, clothes, bedding, doctors, and medical supplies.
Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave seniors the same support they give to other countries
