Bitter Tea

Filed under: Growing Old,Political thoughts — theotheri @ 11:10 pm

I think perhaps the Tea Party is not quite as selfless as I thought when I was writing my post yesterday.  They seem to be greatly in favor of repealing Obama’s health care legislation but increasing payments for Medicare.

Medicare is health care for the elderly.   And a disproportionate number of Tea Party members seem to be over 60.

Meanwhile, today I drove right past the supermarket where I’ve been hundreds of times and where I was planning on going today in the first place.  I was talking to my husband about something completely different.

They say one isn’t as good at multi-tasking as one gets older.

In other words, I need to pay more attention to what I’m doing.  Like maybe I shouldn’t drive and talk at the same time?
