Playing grocery bingo at the senior citizen center

     Good grief!  The average age of a prime-time Fox News viewer is 68 years old!  http://www.politicususa.com/2015/12/28/fox-news-literally-dying-age-younger-viewers-refuse-watch-fox.html  Don't senior citizens have anything better to do with their lives than to sit around watching all those hateful lies being broadcast at them day in and day out?   Maybe they don't -- but I do!  http://www.globalresearch.ca/isis-air-force-us-airstrike-takes-out-battalion-of-iraqi-troops-who-were-battling-isis/5496826  

    Every Monday and Tuesday, our local Trader Joe's store sponsors grocery bingo at my nearby senior citizens center.  So much fun!  And I usually get to haul home enough groceries to supplement my Social Security benefits for the week.  Plus my 11-month-old granddaughter Sofia always manages to win a banana, much to her delight.  Not only that but, besides Sofia, I am usually the youngest person in the room -- a total change from the usual demographic I hang out with.  Refreshing.

     Thank you Thank you Thank you, Trader Joe's.

     And here's another fun thing you can do if you've been "chronologically gifted" -- you can also break into Hollywood.  There are a thousand young women applying for every single ingenue part, but there are hardly any crones out there auditioning for the grandma role (except for me of course).  I just played a steerage passenger on a documentary about the Titanic.  So much fun!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-T7CM4di_0c

      And there are hecka lot of other things that senior citizens can do that are so much more fun than watching lies on Fox News.  For instance, I'm trying to put together a trip to go visit the Jenin Freedom Theatre in the Occupied West Bank.  How cool would that be!  http://mondoweiss.net/2015/04/cultural-resistance-palestine

     Stuck in a wheelchair?  No problem.  You can still make it down to the senior citizen center to play grocery bingo.  They'll pick you up.

PS:  For many decades now, the elderly in America have been shamelessly taken advantage of by scam artists, courts, legal guardians, adult children, nursing homes, the use of pharmaceutical handcuffs and who knows all else.  http://jpstillwater.blogspot.com/2013/08/elder-cleansing-why-is-gop-killing-off.html

     However, as the Baby Boom generation reaches the age of AARP, all these con artists are having trouble getting away with all the dirty tricks they used to pull off on the elderly with such ease because there are so many more of us who protest being lied to and cheated.  This is a good thing.  http://marygsykes.com/2015/12/30/the-chicago-police-investigations/

     And here's another con to watch out for.  If you are a senior who is taking three or more Big Pharma medications, they could cause symptoms similar to Altzheimers.  And if this happens, they will try to cure this by putting you on even more medication (that costs even more money).  Sucks to be you.  http://www.thehealthierlife.co.uk/natural-health-articles/alzheimers/alzheimers-disease-dementia-statin-drugs-over-diagnosis-drug-interactions/

PPS:  One of the biggest fears of the Black grandmothers in my neighborhood is that their Black grandsons, no matter how well-mannered and gifted they are, may leave for school alive one morning and then come back home in a box.  http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/stokelycarmichaelblackpower.html

PPPS:  And speaking of lies, the American public is currently being overwhelmed by a whole pack of lies about "Syrian moderate rebels" who are actually ISIS thugshttp://jpstillwater.blogspot.com/2016/02/more-news-from-my-friend-in-aleppo.html

     There never were any "Syrian moderate rebels" -- and there certainly aren't any now!  It's just the same old WMD crap that we got fed about Iraq -- only bigger and more sophisticated and even more untrue.  ISIS is being soundly defeated and the American military machine that sponsors them is pissed!  https://gowans.wordpress.com/2016/02/10/what-us-congress-researchers-reveal-about-washingtons-designs-on-syria/
