Preying on the Elderly

I was about to write a long rant about the number of political fundraising solicitations my 93-year-old mother receives on a daily basis from virtually hundreds of different organizations claiming to be dedicated to the cause of elderly quality of life.

Then I found this, which saves me a lot of typing. Much of what Mum is experiencing is found here.

Just today I cleaned out solicitations from

"Senior Citizen Association of America"
"National Association for Uniformed Services"
"The Seniors Center"

All wanted money for supposedly critical senior issues.



What is plain is that whatever their stated motivation, every single one of these companies is driving a money-making scheme at the expense of the elderly.

Old folks have very little income, as a general rule. What funds they have are the result of careful savings over a lifetime, or hard-earned pensions. They have much better things to spend their money on than political causes, and many who contribute - such as the gentlemen referred to in the linked article - contribute out of a sense of senescent confusion. This is simply wrong.

I find it sad that there is no way to stop this onslaught.

Hell is going to be a busy place.
