Government Cutbacks

Elderly deported by Canadian government



To save the economy, in July 2010,

all old people in order to lower

Social Security and Medicare costs.

I started crying when I thought of you.



Run, you Old Buzzard, Run!

Well... what can I say?
Someone sent it to me - and I’m not going alone!
