I knew my card stood for something good. now i need a sticker for my truck.
That would be the only way they would be on my truck! Obama supporters!
AARP started leaning far left months ago, and personally, I'm tired of the anti-Republican rhetoric I'm getting in the mail for them. I like your interpretation a whole lot more.
A month ago? These folks have been giving money to the Brady Center for many years! They are totally against our Constitution! Always have been!
AARP is at the top of this list -
It got my attention when they supported the Brady Bill and AW Ban in 1994.
Every piece of AARP mail I've received since then has gone straight into the circular file.
aarp is a joke...............always have been. they have NO regard for seniors, just want to sell insurance. we get stuff from them EVERY day.. tatal waste!!!
Ok guys, I like the photo.
But, I suggest AMAC as an alternative to AARP.
I wanna sticker like that.
I joined AARP MANY years ago, and utilized their discounts at many different places like motels. I also got auto insurance through them.
Then I started noticing their left-leaning several years ago, but still used their insurance and discounts.
Then I found that USAA beat AARP rates by a LOT, and switched to them.
Then I got homeowners through USAA also - when AARP would not write us out here in the country.
So the only thing left of value from them was the discounts.
Then I got searching my brain - and I have NEVER been asked to see my AARP card to get the senior discount at ANY business.
So, as of right now, they have NOTHING that I need nor want. I paid my membership five years at a time from the beginning, and it runs out next summer.
Last time, too.
I will NEVER send them another cent.
Looking at AMAC right now - don't need any of their benefits, but simply want to support a conservative alternate to the AARP.
Since the original OP's graphic sticker is no longer active, I moved this thread to 'general' since it is more general nature seniors interest now -
Yeppers...what he said.
I was glad to leave AARP and join AMAC.
I can't even remember what it was. Somebody dug this one up from way back Highboy?
A lot of outfits are like that, start out the "seniors ally" and kind of morph out into something else?
I remember when I turned 50 (??) I couldn't wait to get that card! The benefits, discounts, whatever!!
About the only thing I can say is they have some saving, budgeting, financial info that's worth it but not a whole lot more.
OH we just had our first ever garage sale AARP Magazines and bulletins FREE! And nobody took ANY!
Oh what does NRA mean? Give you one guess.
NRA sending out ball caps made in China as a premium for signing up as Life Member was pretty dis-tasteful
I just checked my annual members cap from just a few months ago.
The tag says:
Made in USA
one size fits all
for N R A
Then I went out to my car and got my Life Members cap which is a couple months newer.
The tag says:
made in China
Not sure how I feel about this.
The life members cap is obviously higher quality, all cloth with Velcro adjustment for size,with the NRA embroidered on the front of it, while the annual members cap has the NRA patch sewn on the front, nylon back, and plastic button & hole snap adjustment for size.
From my dealings with China, this cap is NOT an extremely low cost one, but one made in one of the more developed areas of China.
My guess would be that this obvious improvement in quality, and the labor involved in embroidery, would be very expensive if done in the USA. I believe the NRA simply chose to spend funds on firearms issues rather than Buy American issues.
You make an excellent point, but I must admit that my Glock is not made here either, nor is the locking holster for it.
I buy American when and where it is reasonable to do so.
But somehow, I do not feel obligated to spend a ridiculous amount of money for a product made in a union factory where the floor sweepers make thirty bucks an hour, more money than I ever did as an Senior Design Engineer.
Just joined AMAC for five years.
