Problem Solved

This is goodbye

You know, it seems like the two biggest problems facing the United States today are the lagging economy, and immigration.  So I got to thinking, which, if history is any indicator, can be a dangerous thing.  Our government seems to see these issues as separate entities while I think in a way they are related.  Here is my idea for solving them both.

Instead of rounding up all the illegal immigrants for deportation,  it would make a lot more sense to round up us old folks and deport us.  Here’s my rational.

1) Social Security costs would drop dramatically.
2) The failure of Obamacare to enroll young healthy people would put less strain on the costs of healthcare.
3) We are used to traveling on buses in groups, eliminating the expense of airfare.
4) We thrive in warm climates.
5) We are a lot easier to catch.
6) A lot of us won’t remember how to get home.

See what happens when you apply a little logic?  After the winter we are having, I’ll bet you could even ask for volunteers.  Just sayin!!

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
