Sounds about right to me...


Let's put the Seniors in jail (if they want to go that is), and the criminals in a nursing home, (whether they want to go or not).

This way the Seniors would have access to showers, hobbies and walks, they'd receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs, etc. They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly if they fell over or needed assistance.

Bedding would be washed twice a week and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them, and a guard/orderly would check on them every half hour or so and bring their meals and snacks to their cell/room.

They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose. They would have access to a library, excercise room, spiritual help if they want it, a swimming pool and enlightening education. They'd be given free simple, comfortable clothes, and legal aid would be free, on request. Private, secure rooms would be designed for all, with an exercise outdoor yard and gardens - including a kitchen garden for those who still yearn for the good life...

Each senior could have a computer, TV, Radio, and daily phone calls. There would be a board of directors, to hear complaints, and the guards/nurses would have a code of conduct, that would be strictly adhered to.

The criminals on the other hand, would get cold food, be left all alone and unsupervised, and unwanted. They'd have their lights turned off at 8pm, and a bath once a week. They'd live in a tiny room for the rest of their lives, and have no hope of ever getting out.

And they'd have to pay £5,000.00 per month for the privilege.

Hi Scrobs - yes, I have seen this proposition elsewhere..

Did you perchance see Michael Moore (he of the famous anti-Bush film of a year or two back) on CNN a day or two ago? He was being interviewed by a typical CNN luvvie on his views of how his beloved Obama was doing.

One of the points he made was that Obama had screwed up on his recent health care bill because it had not gone far enough. Health care should be freely available to all Americans and paid for by the state through taxation. His view was that health insurance was the biggest racket going and should be made illegal. The health insurance industry was in business to make as much money as possible out of its customers - and the easiest way to do that was to collect hefty annual premiums and then decline to pay for treatment and/or care when it was needed.

He is a well known lefty, but he may well have had a point here.

wv: bless .... tqvm, but it was not me who sneezed.

A euthanasia option would be handy to for our poor little criminals.

Reevers, I'm afraid CN doesn't figure on our black and white His Masters Voice Dansette, but I get the gist of what your saying, and yes - the insurance companies wriggle out of anything that reduces their money one iota. I have a huge letter explaining why I was so silly not understanding my policy.

So I've ditched the bastards.

There's a superb run-down on the failings of the banking industry by a correspondent in the D. Telegraph (I think) a couple of days ago, and I'm going to search and reprt it asap.

Blues! I see what you mean after hearing about their business in Dundee!

And yes, get prepared to be old one day, but not while the insurance companies and the banks know where you live...

Agreed Thudders, and why they can't castrate a few of the feral yobs at first light is another question.
