  1. I believe it is part of a new push for the "carbon tax." I could be wrong, but that's the first thing that comes to mind - for me anyway.

  2. Yeah, not many like him. That's for sure. I didn't always agree with his politics, but he always seemed to be a just and decent man. In Washington, that's a lot.

  3. What does it take for a man, without hesitation......want to face death on a daily basis? For many of the warriors past and present, there are veterans among us that have faced that same devil too. Most of my time in the navy was in a relatively safe place. Actually downright comfortable as compared to a muddy foxhole that some of you diggers have endured. Or take a certain RAF bomber pilot-navigator worrying about running out of gas enroute to a bombing run on Falkland Islands. The waters of south Atlantic can be bitterly cold. How about the guys in a pressurized cocoon at or below crus

  4. Having worked with the UN I'd be very wary of believing anything that comes from them. I think the biggest change to come will be with driverless vehicles and automation in the retail industry. In one estimate I've read it would put over 5m drivers out of work in the UK alone and a few million more from the retail industry. My son is a senior manager for Waitrose one of the more expensive supermarkets in the UK and he went to a conference on the future for retail. Within 10 years most supermarkets you won't even have self service tills or shelf stackers. You'll walk into the sh

  6. Sounds like a load of BS propaganda to me which will be used to justify increasing government interference in the economy. A true free market is much more efficient at meeting market demands than government central planning.

  7. Through some research of my own I have learned from talking to SSA that you should have both children on as dependents. They would split the total amount for their benefits each month(ie: $1150 divided by 2 would amount to $575 per child) upon your death they would then receive 75% of your benefit as survivors benefit ($1762) again divided in half for each. The advantage of having both collect will be upon 1 child reaching 18(19 if still in High school) the other child would then be bumped up to getting the full 75% of your benefits until 18 or graduates from high school 19 maximum age. So the

  8. As I understand the law Dave is correct. Your Philippine citizen wife will continue to receive benefits for your American son until age 18. She is not eligible for any other benefits.

  9. All the elevators I have seen here have operators. The operator lets people off before others board. I always thought it was they had operators. Modern elevators are simple enough to run.

  10. Can you give us the link to the section where you saw this? Everything I have read or heard indicates the wife must have a 5 year residency to qualify for a spousal benefit. However, disability might be different????

  11. I can tell you what happened 9 years ago in the case of my deceased American friend. He got married to a Filipina in the Philippines and they had 2 kids. There were married and living here 5 years when he passed. She had never been to the US and on his passing, she continued to get money for the 2 kids up until the time they were 18. She got no widow's pension of any kind. She had the option to move to the USA within 2 years of his death as a widow's benefit. She was only mid-twenties when he passed. He was 71 EDIT: I can tell you another American friend passed away last year in th
