social security[edit]

I recently applied for my social security benefits. I am 62 years old, joined the AF in 1971 and retired in 1993. I will receive my first check in January of 2015. I found out that a girl I grew up with in Illinois will receive not only her social security benefits but also 35% of her husbands. He will still receive his total benefits. She will be receiving about $100 less than me even though I worked from 1971 until 1993. How is that possible? She and her husband are receiving his benefits, her benefits plus an additional 35 percent of what his benefits are. Has Thomas Sowell ever done an article explaining how someone can work only a few years and only on holidays and receive her benefits and 35% of her husbands (her original benefits were something like $311 before the addition of her husbands benefits)? It almost seems ridiculous that I worked all of those years and she barely worked at all and is receiving almost as much as me. Everyone always talks about how the social security system might go broke. If the system works this way, paying familys more than they put in, I can see where the one of the flaws is. afretgirl–––– — Preceding unsigned comment added by Afretgirl (talkcontribs) 20:44, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

AMID RACIAL STRIFE, WE SHOULD CONDISER FACTS[edit]

I was so happy to see your article on the editorial page of the SAN ANGELO STANDARD TIMES. I read each of your articles and save them, sending them to others. You have so much common sense. It is so refreshing to read the truth. I march to the same beat of your drummer! Mary Bartlett — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.197.12.37 (talk) 14:13, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
