A unionized family member of mine retired with pension at 55. Upon reaching the age of 62, she was sent a letter from the pension board informing her that her monthly pension amount would soon be cut in half because she could then begin collecting SS at her age of 62.
It went on to tell her that she could get more information regarding this issue by visiting the SS government website or call 1-800-xxx-xxxx.
apparently her pension included SS payments in the calculation...nevertheless, the decision whether or not to begin collecting SS at 62 or to wait until later was still her decision...

Wow.
Every Liberal Media Talking Head has an agenda that they train for. They fight each other to see who gets to the top of the dung pile.
I can picture journalism classes throughout America's Progressive cesspool where students play-act taking turns being the Conservative opposition to get walloped by the charging Liberal journalist.
The Oprah Winfrey School of Racial Journalism or the Rachel Madcow University of Progressive World Salvation have a good ring to it, eh?
Here's a list of at least 7 incidents of deceptive editing committed by NBC/MSNBC alone.

I have no idea what you're talking about.
Are you going to refuse the government giving back the money they took from you at whatever age you retire? Because discussions about Social Security is the only thing I can think of.
But it's okay to talk about other things besides politics once in a while. Doesn't happen that often.

Timothy Masters Case: Wrongly Jailed for Murder, Man Gets $4.1 Million for 10 Lost Years
http://www.denverlegalview.com/2010/06/post-3...
Don't know if you know about this case, but it was very despicable what happened. More upsetting is that none of the then prosecutors now Judges and the then detective and now sheriff were charged with misconduct.
not the issue in the Skakel case...more likely that the Kennedy/Skakel family paid the judge $4.1 million for his absurd decision...

this is not about Skakel's guilt or innocence, but about the judicial system...

Michael Skakel, whose conviction in the 1975 murder of Martha Moxley was vacated last month, was released from custody after a Connecticut judge granted the Kennedy relative bail at $1.2 million on Thursday.[UPDATED 11:29 a.m. PST, Nov. 21]

Skakel, 53, is the nephew of Ethel Kennedy, the widow of slain Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. Skakel has spent more than 11 years in prison as part of a sentence of 20 years to life in the murder case, set in the affluent Connecticut enclave of Greenwich.

His lawyer, Hubert Santos, said that Skakel was ready to post bail Thursday. Judge Gary White said that Skakel must remain in the state of Connecticut, submit to GPS monitoring and check in with a bail commissioner after being released.



Skakel, then 15, was convicted of using a golf club to bludgeon 15-year-old Moxley to death. But he and his family have always maintained his innocence. Last month, a judge ruled that Skakel's trial attorney, celebrity lawyer Mickey Sherman, failed to adequately represent Skakel in the 2002 trial.

Judge Thomas Bishop said Sherman failed to locate a witness who backed up Skakel's alibi that he was at his cousin's house the night of the murder and failed to find a man who challenged a star witness' claim that Skakel confessed. It was Bishop who ordered the verdict vacated and a new trial. The prosecution is appealing the ruling.

The decision to grant bail was not in doubt after a judge ruled in favor of Skakel, though the amount to be posted was subject to dispute. The prosecution did not oppose bail but sought a higher amount,$2 million. Santos argued that the bail should be lower for Skakel, who like all defendants is now considered innocent with the burden of proof on the prosecution.

Right or wrong, Roberts was reluctant to legislate from the bench, preferring to let ObamaKKKare fail on its own, which it is...

Note that a key part of the decision was striking down the requirement that the states were forced to participate in Medicaid expansion....

This is the Trayvon who is listed in the Police Report as being White with dark complexion.
If every Police Dept. in America is forced to hire Affirmative Action trash who then fill out reports like this, the FBI National Statistics will become so watered down that only the victims will know the color of their attackers and murders.
We had a tv news alert recently that described a crime and then told watchers to "be on the lookout" for the perpetrator.

They never gave a physical description of the criminal himself. At first I thought it was simple ineptitude on the part of the reporter then when they showd him being arrested on another local channel I realized that the omission of a description on the earlier report had been deliberate.

The difference between refusing to profile someone by race and being a useless excuse for a news source is, apparently, shrinking like Bill Clinton's b@lls and Hillary's definition of grace.

It was comparable to them saying their was a rabid animal loose in the community but then refusing to say what type of animal out of fear of embarrassing it publicly.

Oddly enough...that "politically correct" channel ALWAYS shows a photo of any white criminals they report on, no matter whether it's about a violent crime or something benign like deadbeat dads' photos.

Why you gotta be so mean to her? She has as much of a right to be posting here as anybody else does and she's not offensive like most of the rest of the posters here.

Considering the Socialist Party (aka Democrats) passed o-BOZO-Care in 2010 in a strictly party line vote, they have taken 1/6th of the economy and put it under government control so I would say you are now correct.
The Socialist Party (aka Democrats) get the lazy, misguided and ignorant people to vote for them so the slouches in our society can take from people who have worked hard and "earned" what they made.
This is why Democrats picked Obama, because he is very good at dividing society and pitting people against each other and demonizing people. The funny part is, those previously "evil" HMO's are now in bed with Obama because he promised a captive consumer for them. Their stocks went up when o-BOZO-Care was passed.
People like "Yeah" and the rest of the failure liberals here have no clue about economics or the end result of getting what they ask for.
Socialist Societies "always" end up with no middle class because people lose the incentive to work. The rich stay rich and the middle class ends up with low paying jobs, degrading their standard of living. Visit Europe (and look around carefully) and compare it the USA and it's easy to see the difference.
Why are you bothering to try and reason with a moron like "Yeah"?
Well said.

Wrong again moron! Those plans didn't include any of those benefits. What they did have was low premiums but with such high deductibles and co pays that someone would end up seriously in debt before the insurance company paid a dime.

A law was promoted after this incident. Obama voted "present". The law failed.
When was the law you referenced passed? After Obama removed his useless saboteur ass from the assembly, I would guess.
You don't recall anything DB, you just pulled that out of your ass like you do with everything else you post.
The law I referred to,[Illinois Compiled Statutes, 720 ILCS 510/6] had been in place for 20 years when Obama became an Illinois state senator.

Six nominees you moron? Wow! So how many Obama appointees have the GOP filibustered nitwit? How about 84? That's half of all the filibusters against nominees since the country existed you vomitous cretin! When Bush nominees were being challenged the Republicans were always demanding an "up or down" vote. Did they give any of Obama's nominees that? No.
