Here is one you can overhaul:
How divorce affects survivors benefits
If your divorced spouse dies, you can receive benefits as a widow/widower if the marriage lasted 10 years or longer and you are age 60 or older (or age 50 if you are disabled.)

My first wife left me for a younger man after 23 years of marriage. That was 30years ago. Why can she file on my Social Secrity?

I remember reading a story about a man who, it was said, had traded his 50-year old wife for two 25-year old mistresses, or only wished he had. It (would have) cost him a bundle. [LAUGHS]

Stay Off ‘My’ Social Security Tit

I’ve been a SSucker for most of my life and now this Boomer is nursing well. WOW- it’s such a good tit that I can actually have groceries and a scoop of ice cream. I just can’t wait until the ‘New’ FDR Socialists start a brand new Ponzi scheme.

I have worked over four decades for my SS and I dang well mean to have it. The youngsters can keep on paying and just get in line when they’re very old. They can try to suck the hind-tit, but the Ole sow will be dry by then.

It’s too bad for all such youngsters, but the same inviolate reasons which demand for SS-Ponzi to collapse shall ultimately dictate the demise of MC-Ponzi. When the grand MC-Ponzi bubble inflates to unsustainable levels, our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will likewise be defrauded by collapse of Medicare.

It's one thing to participate voluntarily in any Ponzi operation or scheme. But to be a conscripted investor and held captive in both SS-Ponzi and MC-Ponzi, the largest Ponzi operations of Planet Earth is quite another matter.
