Congrats on your loss of control

First Baby Boomer Files For Social Security Benefits
Kathleen Casey-Kirschling filed for early retirement Monday, becoming the first baby boomer to start collecting Social Security.

"I think I'm just lucky to be at the top of the boom. I'm just one of many many millions and am blessed to have been in this generation and really blessed and to take my Social Security now," Casey-Kirschling said during a ceremony held at the National Press Club featuring Social Security Commissioner Michael J. Astrue.

I'll golf clap for you Kathleen. We should all be so proud that your livlihood is now in the hands of others. Isn't it liberating to know that politicians (and therefore voters) control your financial destiny?

Will you get an increase? How much? It's all up to the whims of others yyyaaaayyyy! The important thing is now you are forever bonded to this issue and will be forced into a voting life of servitude to protect your financial well being. Castro and Chavez are smiling right now.

Gee, I remember when men who loved their jobs would cry on their last day of work, and their fellow employees would cry with them, knowing how much they would be missed on the job. It doesn't sound as though she's going to miss any part of being employed, or earning a living and it doesn't sound as if she'll be missed by anybody. By taking an early retirement, this woman is at least reducing her burden on younger workers, and won't get medicare until she's 62. Do we know if she was a public employee? That might explain a lot re the size of her golden parachute.

still is lars aware that you're a criminal? According to your line of thinking always will be a criminal stealing from that other post. Shame on me.

BEAR said...

Well anon 7:04, the demtards are in charge in Congress, now, and we haven't heard a single word about spending control from them or the rinos. In fact, not since Ronald Reagan. Does this mean you are in support of spending control? The libs were in charge then, too, and spent like drunken democrats. Oregon is controlled by the lefties, and all we've heard are whines for more taxes, not spending control. Are you mad at teddy, too?.....didn't think so.....sheesh.

Is english your second language? Because I've got to tell you, your grammar and sentence structure sucks. Now, I'll give everyone a pass on spelling since I'm not such a good speller either, and everyone is entitled to a little mistake here and there, but your posts make you look like a complete dipshit.

I mean, I read it twice and it still comes out all screwy. I get what you're trying to say, but it took a lot of work to get it.

Seriously, how stoned were you when you posted this??

Dear Daniel:

Per usual, you make sweeping judgements of people with very little information to justify it. First of all, how do you KNOW Ms. Casey-Kirshling will be DEPENDING on her Social Security. Its a REALLY small world. My aunt and uncle have been their neighbors for decades now. They aren't hurting, in fact, their spare time is spent on their YACHT. I hardly doubt she DEPENDS on her money.
Another thing, Daniel, don't be so damn smug about your future. You could be hit by a semi-truck on your way home from work today and spend the rest of your life as a parapalegic who DEPENDS on social security disability and medicaid. You could be wiped out by a catastrophic illness and have NO retirement savings by the time you retire. I used to know a big whig at Albertsons who had the same attitude you do. His wife developed ALS (Lou Gehrigs Disease) at about the same time he was forced into early retirement at Albertsons back when things started to go bad for them (2000). They've lost it all battling her disease, paying for long term care. They live in an apartment now and their SS check makes up a big part of their income. He is a far different man than the smug a**hole he used to be. Shit happens Daniel.

LOL, LOL....this one made me laugh. "Financial well being" (Don't raise my taxes!)is the classic scare-tactic/propoganda/motivator used to encourage GOP "voting servants"
to get to the voting booth. Just who is the "servitude" voter? Thanks for the laugh. The young, they're so

Get real, Daniel!

So what are you saying? That she should be ashamed of herself for retiring after a life time of hard work? Good God.

It's only in the land of make-believe that is the right-wing mind that calling someone a "tard" passes for intelligent argument.

It goes to show how intellectually bankrupt the right is that name-calling is their argumentative weapon of choice.

As the sign says, slow-moving minds keep right.

Let's see:

"you moron"

"you're a criminal"

"complete dipshit"


and it's the Right calling names?

And that's only in this comment list.

Uh..."eddie"....the "dipshit" and "moron" gems are from our beloved "anthony delucca." I saw a new one last night from "the right" on this blog that was kind of funny: "maroon"

Well, who knows if the quote given by her is taken out of context. But taken on face value you gotta love it. She feels lucky to be at the top of the boom, and in this generation, and getting her benefits now.

Yeah, that's right, because her generation is the one that really lucked out on the Ponzi scam that is SS. She will make out like a bandit, while her kids will be lucky if they only get a moderately negative return on their money. The money her kids could have put away, letting them retire as millionaires, is now being sucked down by her generation. Thanks Kathy!

Ill never understand how the boomer generation was so willing to sacrifice their kids future, for their own greed. Then again, its been said that a democracy will enter its final state of decline when the people find out they can vote themselves money.

One nice thing though is if Al Gore is right, I guess her kids will have one thing Kathy didn't, lower heating bills because of that 0.7 degree warming. Maybe all is not lost.

Oh yes - lets just get the left wing diversions out of the way all in one post. We all know how the left who responds here cant every deal with an argument directly, so I thought I would do their job for them and save some time.

Oh yeah, but what about the war in Iraq?

Oh yeah, well how come Bush vetoed that S-Chip thingy? Bush hates kids!

Oh yeah? well how come this is the first time Republicans care about kids, Republicans kill kids, everyone knows that.

OK - Got those out of the way, wheeew.

Name Calling is a Right wing thing??!?? are you kidding me??

Let's see:

General "Betray-Us"


All illegal Immigration opponents are "Racists"

And talk about intellectualy bankrupt, who gave us these little gems rather than having to actually discuss the issue in an intelligent manner:

Make Love, not war!
No blood for oil!
Keep your laws off my body!

And I could go on and on about how the left uses these little sound-bites rather than having to actually do some research and debate the issue by using their brains.

I'll get some of my own digs out of the way right now:

Douche nozzles.
Lefty Trolls
Dirty hippies
patchuli smelling freaks
Brainless sheep

who are you kidding? The fact is, and you know it, that BOTH liberals and conservatives are EQUALLY prone to name-calling on venues such as this. No one is worse than the other and you know it. You are not innocent, conservatives are not name calling VICTIMS, but EQUAL PARTICIPANTS. Would you like some cheese with your whine?

Why waste time on the little anon lib'tards?

The only reason they are here is because no one reads their socialist rants ... with a few exceptions caused by a small number of local Stalinists, there are no hits on their blogs that aren't generated by webcrawlers.

Via the Los Angeles Times:

"Federal prosecutors today charged members of the Latino Florencia 13 street gang with racially motivated crimes against African Americans, including several attempted homicides.

Authorities said the gang specifically tried to eliminate rival African American gangs in South L.A. and the Florence-Firestone area in an effort to “cleanse” the neighborhood. In doing so, they mistakenly harassed and attacked innocent African American residents, according to the indictment.

More than 60 members and associates of the Florencia 13 street gang were charged with federal racketeering and drug charges.

“In their attempt to intimidate African Americans in the community, they targeted innocent citizens,” U.S. Attorney Thomas P. O’Brien said.

O’Brien said the arrests were the result of a nearly three-year investigation into the gang that culminated in federal indictments at the end of the summer.

The arrests come as both local and federal officials have launched a crackdown on race-motivated gang crime across L.A. Authorities have already filed charges against a different Latino gang in the Harbor Gateway area accused of crimes against African Americans, including the slaying of a teenage girl last year."


And you dickheads call ME racist because I oppose illegal immigration.

Anthony DeLucca said...


You idiot. ead my post, it wasn't a whine, it was a rebuttal. You can't tell the difference because you're stupid. That's not my fault.

Furthermore, I proved your point by getting some names in at the end of my post. I didn't say that the right doesn't name call, I was rebutting a previous post that stated that was ALL they did.

I stated the same as you: both sides use name calling. Period.

Use what little brain you have...you swag bellied little measle.

So I assume, as a matter of principle, you will be donating your Social Security check to a worthy cause, rather than depositing it into your bank account?

Come on people. Instead of name calling, how about getting on the phones and faxes to voice your opinion on the the latest amnesty threat, the Dream Act. You can easily rechannel this energy to actually make a difference on this travesty.
Go to Numbers USA and join if you're not a member. It's free and you can easily email your representatives and keep track of how they voted.

Why in the world would you assume that?

Once again, failure to read. Her generation was the greediest, mine will see a negative return at best due to their actions. Her generation should have cut back, raised the retirement age rather than keeping it the same to scam future generations. Clearly from her quote, she appears to know this. That was what my post was about.

Since I am self employed I pay the full 12.5%.I will see probably close to a 50% negative return. I have already lost half my money so there is your donation smart guy. Probably far more than you will ever do. My generation wont be the problem. Social security will go back to the original rip off it was when they raise the retirement age back to where it was, past life expectancy.. Her generation is the problem, they bear the blame entirely and, once again, by her quote, she is clearly aware of this.

Do any of you guys who have the clever comments ever think them through before you post them?
