You could possibly be correct, but at least they contributed. Unlike those collecting that never put in one cent.
Many too are on disability that hardly worked at all in their life. They collect more than those who contributed 33 yrs. I know many personally. I do not care for their tactics.
Also what about all those who worked all their life and passed away early at ages 48,52,53. I knew many of them too. Never collected a cent.
Docent are you a tax paying proud American?
Lets see if I get any answers. TY
Just in case anyone on this board was wondering, WGBOX67 (or as we call him WOOGIEBOOGIEBOX on the Geron board) was caught using multiple user IDs. So if you see any "other" person that you thought was suspicious... here's the list of WOOGIEBOOGIE's known user IDs:
WGBOX67 = BLACKMARANGO = BETTER4NOW = WAYNE = QRANGER2000
or as we alternately call them:
WOOGIEBOOGIEBOX = BLACKMORON = BETTER4NEVER = WAYNE'SWORLD = QUACKRANGER
Hope it helps.
Guess you like the communist, socialist system of getting more in benefits than you pay in premiums. Must be nice to be a taker while criticizing everybody else as takers. You and your smug cronies are hypocrites and frauds. Give up those benefits that you did not earn instead of making young people pay your way. No wonder America is in trouble.
Reid: The Border is Secure
by KEITH KOFFLER on JULY 15, 2014, 5:14 PM
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid today said the border is secure.
No, not the Canadian border. Not the border between California and the Pacific Ocean. Not the border between Scotland and England.
The border between the U.S. and Mexico.
What? No, this isn’t one of my satire pieces. He said it. Have a look for yourself.
Everyone here: The border is secure. Uhh, (Sen.) Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) talked to the caucus today. He’s a border state senator. He said he can say without any equivocation the border is secure.
Oh please, please, please give me some of what he’s smoking. I could use a break from reality too.
Definitely , Put him in first class with harry , kerry , biden ( Who is he ? ) and nancy with no one else on board. I will pay for all of the tickets.
PS , Biden is very upset that he didn't think along the same lines as harry reid and come out first saying the border with mexico is secure the way it is and needs no changes..
Unfortunately Patty Myers and others on this board are misinformed about the ratio of social security and Medicare payments to benefits received. While many of these misinformed criticize public assistance beneficiaries as takers, they receive social security and Medicare benefits adjusted for inflation that are significantly greater than their contributions. A person retiring in 2010 receives more than double the benefit. Someone who retired in 1980 receives 5 times the benefit. And someone who retired in 1960 receives 14 times the benefit. So I would advise the elderly not to be so smug about their earned benefits. They are getting much of their social security and Medicare benefits on the backs of younger people.

TIPS FROM A PRO
I tried sending two full messages and been blocked from Yahoo. I am sending little at a time.
Hey would it be nice if Obama is in the next plane over Ukraine?
Among presidents in modern American history, he has also been a uniquely divisive force. It began with his forcing Obamacare through Congress —the only major legislation in American history to be passed with no votes from the opposition party. Though he has had a unique opportunity to do so, he has not only not helped heal racial tensions, he has exacerbated them. His intrusions into the Trayvon Martin affair (“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon”) and into the confrontation between a white police officer and a black Harvard professor (the police “acted stupidly”) were unwarranted, irresponsible, demagogic, and most of all, divisive. He should have been reassuring black Americans that America is in fact the least racist country in the world — something he should know as well as anybody, having been raised only by whites and being the first black elected leader of a white-majority nation.
Instead, he echoed the inflammatory speech of professional race-baiters such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. He has also divided the country by economic class, using classic Marxist language against “the rich” and “corporate profits.” Regarding America in the world, he has been, if possible, even more damaging. The United States is at its weakest, has fewer allies, and has less military and diplomatic influence than at any time since before World War II.
One wonders if there is a remaining ally nation that trusts him.
They blocked the remainder of the response. I guess look it up.
The previous message too was partially blocked. All they say is the truth. No threats or bashing.
I Think SHE IS #$%$! I don't think '#$%$' really covers it!!!!
Alan Simpson, the Senator from Wyoming , calls senior citizens the
'Greediest Generation' as he compared "Social Security"
to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats
Here's a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana ...
I think she is a little ticked off!
She also tells it like it is!
"Hey, Alan, let's get a few things straight!!!!!
1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole (tit) for FIFTY YEARS.
2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS
(since I was 15 years old. I am now 63).
3. My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other
Americans, were safely tucked away in 'an interest bearing account' for
decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give
OUR money to a bunch of losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting
the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would make Bernie Madoff proud.
4. Recently, just like Lucy and Charlie Brown, you and "your ilk" pulled
the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing
retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to
NOW, you and your "shill commission" are proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN .
5. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare
from day one, and now "you" propose to change the rules of the game.
Why? Because "you" mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an
extent that you need to steal our money from Medicare to pay the bills.
6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our
entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why?
Because you "incompetents" spent our money so profligately that you
just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to
Packy, you omitted the last statement of that report so I included it below.
"Is Samsung going to further expand its partnership with Corning to the point of eventually making a buyout bid for Corning? That’s part of what’s fueling speculation about Corning being a potential, if not an imminent takeover target. Stay tuned".
Sentiment: Strong Buy
