AARP

This is where to post the names of places to boycott because they have anti-gun, anti-freedom stances or policies. Any posts advocating boycotts must explain the reasons for the boycotts including, if possible, documentary proof, such as links to business web sites or news articles.

The AARP along with the NAACP, KKK, the Democratic and Socialist Parties all have had long standing desire to have their members and the civilian population in general, disarmed. All advocate for gun control and even if they do not agree with each others basic tenets or philosophies, they are in agreement where they can hurt their people the most. I do not belong to any of these groups and do not plan on joining either. These groups disgust me with their arrogance and self aggrandizing attitudes and behaviors. They care little for the people they purport to help and actively work to make sure they are victims, this is not healthy. :disgusted:

Wife and I checked out the 60+ association, ( we still have a few years) Would it be just a coincidence that the very next piece of junk mail I got was Mcdougal Funeral home literature? MAYBE, just maybe I am closer than I think.. :sadstory:

Well, it's always good to have a will set up in advance, just in case of the unthinkable.

If you want me to come over and help you spell out my whole name, just let me know! :lolbang:

Bunch a jokers... :lol2:

I agree with you, Cinhil. I'll never join the AARP, although I've already started receiving mailings from them.
I'll join a pro-liberty and pro-self-defense organization instead.

I have for years encouraged my family members to avoid joining AARP and I have failed. The financial benefit of joining AARP out weights the political ramifications in their minds. I think this very thing is dishonest on the part of the AARP. They should, in my opinion, keep their political activities entirely separate both in funding and in enrollment from their seniors aid and insurance programs. The entice seniors with financial and life enhancing benefit simply to get them added to their massive roll of members so they can unleash their lobbyists with a bigger stick with which to beat legislators.

I guess even at my age it is still possible to learn something new. We used to get some form of mailing from AARP or their affiliates a couple times a week. After reading the post and following the links, I sent our cards back along with an explanation as to why 60+ would get support from us (when we are OLD enough) and a lot of vocal support as well. This is a photo of the last item of mail that I returned,
in the self addresses pre paid envelope. :ROFL:

We have had no more contact from them, Thanks UCC folks

Doesn't have to fit in the envelope. You can tape their prepaid envelope to a box of rocks (like you would an address label) and they're still liable for the postage.
