    ....and I have received three mailings in the past 5 weeks regarding Social Security and Medicare, and the mailings were well done!

      all of my mailings have been the petitions to send back to all the congresscritters.  I did that once before and wound up on Rubio's mailing list as a result, receiving a from letter from him telling me absolutely nothing.

      I condemn Mitt Romney for political opportunism in exercising his free speech rights to criticize America's leaders during a foreign crisis. Wow, I guess I just apologized for Mitt Romney being an ass.

      Now, truth be told ... I have an NYC address ...  and if the AARP had set it's  BiNonPartisanship(tm) aside to actually support the party that is offering seniors the  better deal -- downstate NY is probably not the best use of money.  Democrats have the lock, here.

      (Of course it might be money well spent to show NY's AARP members that AARP is capable of taking a pro-senior side, not tied to selling luxury travel, annuities, and insurance products. But, presumably AARP has business professionals capable of calculating that sort of thing)

      But, the last few AARP magazines DID offer  less "evenhanded"  viewpoints on ACA, Medicare, and Medicaid than it's been doing in previous years.

      But it's the crying shame of the world that AARP is still regarded as an "advocacy" group for Seniors.

      With friends like that ... we're on our own.
