For Christian American readers of this blog:

I wish to incite all Christians to rise up and take back the United States of America with all of God's manifold blessings. We want the free allowance of the Bible and prayers allowed again in schools, halls of justice, and all governing bodies. We don't seek a theocracy until Jesus returns to earth because all men are weak and power corrupts the very best of them.
We want to be a kinder and gentler people without slavery or condescension to any.

The world seems to be in a time of discontent among the populace. Christians should not fear. God is Love, shown best through Jesus Christ. God is still in control. All Glory to our Creator and to our God!

A favorite quote from my good friend, Jack Plymale, which I appreciate:

"Wars are planned by old men,in council rooms apart. They plan for greater armament, they map the battle chart, but: where sightless eyes stare out, beyond life's vanished joys, I've noticed,somehow, all the dead and mamed are hardly more than boys(Grantland Rice per our mutual friend, Sarah Rapp)."

Thanks Jack!

I must admit that I do not check authenticity of my posts. If anyone can tell me of a non-biased arbitrator, I will attempt to do so more regularly. I know of no such arbitrator for the internet.

Pension changes put retirees at risk

The Democratic and Republican conventions are near and regardless of political party, the next president must listen to the needs of older Americans. Senior citizens today are in true peril because of the severe dilution of our so-called "federally guaranteed" ERISA law protections.
The 1974 Employee Retirement Income Security Act was signed into law under President Gerald Ford to protect vulnerable older Americans and establish minimum standards and protections for pensioners. Now 42 years later, too many of our former employers, aided by the insurance industry and Wall Street, are subverting ERISA by dumping their retirees' earned pensions, into unprotected group annuity contracts.
Unlike pensions, annuities are not protected against lawsuits and creditor and bankruptcy claims nor by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, and are barely sheltered by 50 different insurance industry-run state guaranty associations.
The next president and Congress have a moral obligation to uphold the intent of ERISA and protect the earned rights of older Americans against corporate tricks that devastate the foundation of our retirement security.
The nonprofit ProtectSeniors.Org of which I am a part, is leading the fight for retirees but can be successful only with a chorus of many loud voices behind them. I urge my fellow retirees to join me and ProtectSeniors.Org (www.ProtectSeniors.Org) in making our issues heard.
We must use our votes this election year to support only those who support the financial security of retirees.
