The AARP has decided to showcase Tuolumne County as a place of “hillside hamlets scattered across the county: echoes of Appalachia”.
The video showcases trailers on junk filled property, dirty cats in outdoor cages (no explanation), trash dumped all over roads and various scenes of squalor.
The people interviewed discuss what little money they have, choices in eating dog and/or cat food, having to walk over a mile to use a restroom and how unhappy they are to be in Tuolumne County rather than San Francisco.
Words on the screen seem to blame the poor living conditions on the “closed mines and mills”. Dilapidated, antiquated and abandoned buildings on both sides of a road are shown.
AARP claims to be a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization for people over the age of fifty. They have a membership of over 37 million.

(Bloomberg.com) One day after forming an exploratory committee to help him decide whether to run for president in 2016, Ben Carson, the retired neurosurgeon, found himself in hot water after asserting that the experience of some prison inmates proved that being gay is a societal choice.
In a wide-ranging discussion of gay rights with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Wednesday, Carson stated that he believed sexual preference was a matter of personal choice rather than something a person is born with. To prove his point, Carson then noted the experience of those who have been incarcerated.
Carson’s comments were widely reported, and caused an immediate backlash on social media.
Hours later, Carson issued a formal apology in which he stated that he “realized that my choice of language does not reflect fully my heart on gay issues.”
“I do not pretend to know how every individual came to their sexual orientation. I regret that my words to express that concept were hurtful and divisive. For that I apologize unreservedly to all that were offended,” Carson’s statement read.
Still, Carson said that the jury is still out on the question of how a person’s sexual orientation is determined.
“Some of our brightest minds have looked at this debate, and up until this point there have been no definitive studies that people are born into a specific sexuality,” the statement he provided to CNN read.
