Kaplan is a Jewish name. America’s Jews live in cities, the metropolitan kind where big business is.
They used to own and manage small businesses. Early last century they used to write beautiful music expressing their affection for the country where, at last, they could live in safety.
American Jews are indoor people. They write. They talk. Many males are moguls in Big Business. Others are moguls at today’s American universities where Marxism and other leftisms are taught. Females write articles. Some are in the feminist business.
Somewhere in the catacombs of these modern, highly vocal Judaist Marxists so absolute of their own perfections, hide the most wonderful Americans I have ever met either personally or in the broader cultural scene. Needless to write, Dennis Prager is my favorite among them, both as an American, and as a Jew. He believes in God, too. Likewise are many of my small, struggling company’s clients who actually have a feel for beauty over noise and money, many so old-fashioned as Americans, they too are isolated from the vast majority of their ethnic brother and sisterhoods of the modern American socialist city.
I know nothing about the writer of the following article, Karen Kaplan except she has written the following article which caught my eye.
I do know the Los Angeles Times is a standard leftwing Obamaling network hiring and selling leftism to American citizens. Nearly all of metropolitan America’s newspapers are.
Ms. Kaplan is not aged, in her 80s as I am. She is a reporter, a “contact reporter”, hired to write things to help the Los Angeles Times pay its bills and make a profit. She is valued for her writing skills, not her experiences, the usual fete for reporters of any kind.
IS RETIREMENT HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH? by Karen Kaplan (“Contact” reporter at the Los Angeles Times)
“It’s an intriguing question in light of a new study that finds senior citizens who work are in better health than their counterparts who don’t.
Researchers from the University of Miami and their colleagues examined data on more than 83,000 Americans who participated in the National Health Interview Survey between 1997 and 2011. All of them were at least 65 years old when they were interviewed, and 13% of them were still working part time or full time. The majority of these workers — 61% — held white-collar positions.
Compared to people with white-collar jobs, those who were unemployed or retired were 2.75 times more likely to report their health as “poor” or “fair.” (The other options were “good,” “very good” or “excellent.”) People with blue-collar jobs, service-industry jobs or who worked on farms rated their health as about the same as their white-collar peers.
The survey also rated health using a measure called the Health and Activities Limitation Index, or HALex, which includes factors like whether people need help taking care of themselves or have limitations in the kind of work they can do. The 80% of people with the highest HALex scores were considered to be in good shape, compared with the 20% of people who had the lowest scores……”
Be certain to read the entire article below……and while reading, do wonder if Ms. Kaplan might be confined to her community’s catacombs politically and often therefore, religiously and, if discovered, be thrown to the limitless leftist pile of the “should-have-been-unborns” to rot.
Of course there is that possibility this Ms. Kaplan isn’t Jewish at all, but a beloved husband might be……which might cause an entire other kind of isolation.
