I'm so glad you could stop by. This is my personal blog of daily life and my journey through life. You will find a strong emphasis on family and friends as well as finding my ancestors through genealogy. Unlike my other blogs this blog is more of a catch-all so any topic is fair game.

Jails and Nursing Homes

[from my email files:  I can't say that I don't agree with this one.  It seems the criminals get a much better deal than those who have worked hard all their lives and simply need a bit of care in their senior years.  Keep the good ones coming!]


Jails and Nursing Homes

Here's the way it should be:

  • Let's put the seniors in jail and the criminals in nursing homes..
  • This would correct two things in one motion:
  • Seniors would have access to showers, hobbies and walks.
  • They would receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs, etc.
  • They would receive money instead of having to pay it out.
  • They would have constant video monitoring, so they would be helped instantly if they fell or needed assistance.
  • Bedding would be washed twice a week and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.
  • A guard would check on them every 20 minutes.
  • All meals and snacks would be brought to them
  • They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.
  • They would have access to a library, weight/fitness room, spiritual counseling, a pool and education...and free admission to in-house concerts by nationally recognized entertainment artists.
  • Simple clothing - i.e.., shoes, slippers, pj's - and legal aid would be free, upon request.
  • There would be private, secure rooms provided for all with an outdoor exercise yard complete with gardens.
  • Each senior would have a P.C., T.V.., phone and radio in their room at no cost.
  • They would receive daily phone calls.
  • There would be a board of directors to hear any complaints and the ACLU would fight for their rights and protection.
  • The guards would have a code of conduct to be strictly adhered to, with attorneys available, at no charge to protect the seniors and their families from abuse or neglect.

As for the criminals :

  • They would receive cold food.
  • They would be left alone and unsupervised.
  • They would receive showers once a week.
  • They would live in tiny rooms, for which they would have to pay $5,000 per month.
  • They would have no hope of ever getting out.
Sounds like justice to me!
