Ask the post office how that's working out for them.

I say good for your uncle, Moe. He did his time, he should get paid.
Did his time? He wasn't in prison. He was doing what he wanted and getting paid all the while. Even he says its crazy that he's making so much money as a retiree.

This.

Totally unsustainable, especially now that people are living longer.

My parents used to always fight with my Grandpa on whose going to pay the bill for dinner. Then they found out that he was making more than both of them combined haha. They eventually let him pay for all the dinners LoL. Retired AF / Retired Contractor / Social Security...

Well, he retired from two different jobs that offered pension plans. He paid into those plans while he was an employee. So in my opinion, he's owed that money.

Now, if you want to say cut out social security payments to people who have retirement pensions from the companies they worked for, then I'm onboard.

But I don't think it's going to be a very popular idea to let people work at a job for 20 or 30 years, and then tell them "oh by the way, we're cancelling your pension plan."

People who have "Established [year they were born]" on their social media profiles need to be slapped around a little, and then removed from said social media platform.

Yes actually. I think we mainly have Sea Lions. Since they are "Lions" we call it cubbing.
