    Instead of focusing on people who acted in westerns the media's attention should be on the elderly citizens in this country. These ppl paid taxes, owned businesses, raised families, fought in wars and served their communities as teachers, firefighters, and every other occupation you could think of. Now they have gotten old and we as a country have forgotten about them and it's a shame. Don't think you won't get to the point one day when you can't wipe your behind after taking a shit or fry an egg or walk to the corner store. It's happening now and I know because I send people to help the ones who can't do just what I described. The only problem is, it's not worth talking about because the ones who don't have enough money to hire someone to do what they need help with are a burden and the feeling is they just need to die. Can you believe that? Or are you for that?

    We as a country?
    Don't you mean we as a people?
    At the same time, one must not forget the old adage..."where you are today is the sum total of the decisions you have made so far."

    Your concern for the elderly is admirable. However, it's not a new subject - and has been covered by the media more than once.... perhaps, at the time, you were not so interested... maybe because you weren't getting paid to be interested.

    Give it a fucking rest. You start thread after thread with some hysterical, sudden concern for old people.

    Californiagirl, first of all I've worked helping the elderly for over twenty yrs and the reason I started the threads is b/c I wanted other ppl to know what I know. Had I known you would be so harsh about it, I wouldn't have done it and I won't anymore. I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    The Elderly are not attractive. For the Media,it's all about Dumbing our nation down. If they don't look or act like Lady Ga Ga or on some stupid Reality TV Show,the Media has no interest in them. Also,the Elderly remind the self-absorbed & phony Media hacks of death. The Elderly kind of force them to face their own mortality. Don't look to the Media for any wisdom or reality. You'll only be disappointed. Their only concern is in creating a fake fantasy world for the dumbed-down masses. It is sad but it is what it is.

    Because they expect the death panels to kill them off sooner than later and so they are irrelevant.

    The day they merged Entertainment News with real News was the day credible Media died. It's all about Dumbing the nation down at this point so you'll shop till you drop. They just want you to buy their products they advertise. They really do want you to believe that Charlie Sheen puking in his Hotel Room is just as important as World Peace & World Hunger. They've merged the two to make sure you get dumber.

    How many tards did you see getting so upset over Conan O'Brien getting booted from NBC or who didn't win on American Idol? They acted as if the World was coming to an end over that stupid stuff. They report this stupid stuff right along with serious news stories that really do matter. Americans really are becoming dumber & dumber by the day. Reporting on the Elderly just doesn't fit in with this Media madness. It's just too much reality for the average dumb American to handle. They prefer their American Idol and Celebrity Gossip instead. Just turn them off. That's the only logical solution.
