    Yeah, there are a lot of things we have backwards. Not unlike how we pay professional football players millions and let teachers make poverty level.

    Thanks to the Republicans, nursing homes in Florida are horrible and getting worse.

    This all came from tort reform Republicans passed a few years ago. Medically injured people recover economic damages only. Nothing for pain and suffering. Old people don't work, so what can they sue for?

    Of course, the nursing homes love this. They pay aides $7.35/hr who give short attention to the patients, or else they get fired. Meanwhile, the facility is getting $9,000 a month to warehouse patients in these unkempt facilities.

    failscarf saidTrue but prison food isn't good and the rest of those things are to keep them from taking over the prison.
    Many elderly need close, watchful care not some camera overhead.

    I do agree that the elderly need better care but this poster seems a bit misinformed.


    You're not familiar with juxtaposition to make a point. icon_eek.gif

    Are you being a troll or just ignorant?

    Everything is the republicans fault. Why are prisons so much more "luxurious" than their supposed to be? Thank the ACLU for that, which is an arm of the liberal democrat party and a former employer of Ruth buzzi Ginsberg.

    I say we put Rick Scott in prison. That is where he belongs anyway.

    Great rant. It sounds like Archie Bunker of the early 70s sitcom All In The Family.

    There is something about this thread that reminds me of previous laughter on approach from the south into Jumbolair in Ocala, Florida. There is a 30 foot circular retaining wall at the south end of the runway because some bright jet jockey one day juxtaposed the exhaust of his twin turbofans to the trailer park across the street and opened the throttles full bore. Oh well, it was a nice mobile home at one time.

    There were those enlightened of the Ocala area who suggested the owners at Jumbolair construct concrete homes for the tenants in the trailer park. Offers were made in fact to purchase the whole damn thing, i.e. the mobile man cae park. Eventually the concrete retaining wall was constructed and life returned to normal for all.

    Now just think, Florida might have more cash for nursing homes if folks would just learn to bahave their ass and not go from the trailer park to the prison.

    I dont mean to intervere with your country's business but in my personal piont of view i think the best way for you all to make it better is put your self out of the party.
    because as long as it's about politic the world will never be better.
    And one more, it's just too bad for me to see those eldery sent to such a place like that when their childern are still alive. Because in my tribal culture, no matter how busy or poor we are, our parents are treasure. Just remember we were raised by them since we were a baby but when they reached their inability to do something anymore, you sent them to a nursing house like that??? Not fair!
    Last one for failscraft, im happy that you already tasted the prison's food. Hahaha icon_biggrin.gif

    Ever actually visited, or been in a prison?

    (Just how "luxurious" are they "supposed to be"? Please inform us.)

    Just went through this with my dad in the three months he was in the nursing home before he died. It was very very difficult for everyone, but I think the nursing home did just about all they could until hospice put him down. My brother, sister and I took turns and were there pretty much around the clock. It's just a bad situation with no easy answer. My grandfather died 49 years ago of a massive heart attack ... where he was here and fine one moment and gone the next. He went way too young at age 64, but that's the way to go, not what I saw in the nursing home.
