Klippoklondike: Giltric: NJ teachers and NY cops pay into both ss and pension funds and get to collect both.

If you pay in you should get it.

Agreed. And what's wrong with being a garbage man? I realize it's not glamorous but occupations of all kinds deserve respect.

relcec: Smackledorfer: relcec: mrlewish: So subby is saying that 20 years in the military shouldn't get retirement pay?

I'll say it.
going forward, no one in a defined benefit plan should be able to draw retirement before they reach a reasonable retirement age.
if you have a defined contribution plan then you are free to blow your money all in one year if you like. hell, blow it in a weekend at vegas for all I care.

Even military? So you want sixty year old soldiers.

I thought liberals actively pushed retards like you out of the club?
they always claim they remove the mentally deficient around here.
how'd you make it through the screening process?

You can't stay polite for a minute, can ya?

Mrlewish was specific in his statement ("so subby is saying X") to which you said you agreed with the statement ("I'll say it") feel free to clarify your thoughts on military retirement if you didn't mean that.

Are you dissing garbage men, Elitistmitter? It really sounds like you are with that "dropped out of high school at 17 to work on a garbage truck" crack. What, you're automatically better than the guy who busted his ass at a shiatty job day after day for twenty years? People who work hard at manual labor jobs are somehow less deserving of respect than people who sit at a desk? Is that what you're saying, Snobmitter?

Because you sound like you need to be at the gym in 26 minutes. And you suck.

You know what Subby, if the guy was farkin' garbage man for 20 years, he showed up to work and picked up shiat five days a week for 20 frakin' years...he deserves every dime he gets. Jesus, people saying mind boggling stupid shiat like this really make we want to cockpunch every Republican I meet, which mean I would have to cockpunch my Dad and I am pretty sure he can still kick my ass.
