Jizz, what an acrinomy always between you americans on this forum !Can't you just be respectful of others' opinions? As Belgian, I am really disgusted by some personal attacks. No surprize you have so much shootings in the US. Always upset and no respect.

Pretty broad brush my friend. When it comes to petty sniping here, it seems there is plenty of blame to go around. Some people just like to argue, they seek reaction to their prodding and claim innocence when the negativity begins. From what I've seen on this forum, their not all from the U.S.

I think one person referred to it as "challenging others". I guess that's one way to spin it.

I don't know about others, but I tend to tune out for long periods because of the childish, petulant, confrontational, uncivil, cantankerous, peevish, bad-tempered, petty, irritable, querulous, fractious, whiny, disgruntled, ill-humored Shenanigans.

Equal blame to instigaters and respondents.

You can't reason with an unreasonable person. You just get drawn into their drama, and you make everyone else feel tired.

You can be morally or logically right, and still loose. It's also possible to have an equally valid (divergent) viewpoint and simply think you are right.

I guess this is more of a "Community" than a "Resource Center" for expates. I was warned when I joined by multiple people via Private Message.

I'll just keep skimming 80-150 response threads for occasional nuggets of wisdom. (About 1 in 30 responses).

I'm guilty too, so plenty of blame to spread around.

TeeJAy - there are many great inputs from expats here and guidance . I like the true Diversity of thoughts and such . We dont have to love each other , but making an effort to get along is key I think . 1st off , im not pointing fingers , but Challenging thoughts and such is key to things I think . So long as it does not get too too personal . Ive put a few people on to this forum and they have all stating its informative, good , and each person has a little different spin on things .We should all rejoice in this. help we provide . Thats an asset for our group. There is SO MANY knowledgeable people on here petty stone throwing by some will happen time to time , but we all must remember who we serve and get over the tossed stones . Heck , people toss stones at me too ... but I try to rise above it ... We are too good I think for any form of sideline stuff and quarrels ....

Marshmallow - you still Lurking from the shadows ? .... Just ribbing you , HA!!! Join in , you have a lot to contribute . I , like you watch a few Canadian sites to see what people moving to Canada think of our culture and things . Its humbling at times. Good luck in your law program .

Meant to be a joke .

I think at time people have to vent too . A problem in some parts of Europe and the RP at time . Venting is therapeutic in a way . I hope everyone can smoke a peace pipe in the end . Really do .

Depends on how the challenge is worded. Is it with fact, conjecture or malice. When done with malice it only serves to provoke and leads to nothing of value.

When done intelligently with forthought and reasearched fact and maybe a new idea or two, it is challenging and adds to an intelligent discourse where all share and learn.
This encourages members to share productively and with respect to one another's thoughts and ideas. We all win.
On this I agree with you with regard to challenging another member.

Making excuses for the stone thrower is just that, excuses. No matter whose friend he or she may be.

I believe you're referring to my post where I said the next time the Germans drop by don't call US. There was no invitation as you wrote. Please be accurate when citing me.
The Belgian was excoriating Americans for our argumetativeness. OK, he can think what he wants and I can call him out on it if I choose. And I did.

Plus I like Belgium and Belgians - been there many times on business, Anvers more than Brussels. Long ago but I have good memories of it. Great food - a combo of French style/techniques with German heartiness. To allude to another post here, the toilet paper then was small, individual sheets, wax on one side and non-absorbing, rough on the other. All in light brown for color coordination. A friend of mine with me was a vet of the So. Pacific while his wife was an Army nurse in Europe. They used to bicker about which was tougher. He wrote her a note on a slip of that toilet paper: Dear Helen: You were right and things are still rough in the ETO. Love, Bob

What exactly do you mean by that Bee? Social Security isn’t a gift. It’s money that was taken from peoples paychecks every single time that they were ever paid over their lifetime and to be used to supplement people’s retirement when they reach retirement age.
It’s not like the Government is giving us anything that we didn’t earn. It was our freaking money in the first place.
Not including of course the immigrants that essentially get assistance for absolutely nothing but that is another issue entirely.

Concur as to your Social Security bit. I began paying into that in 1944 or 1945 and am still working and contributing. That someone can illegally or legally enter and receive the same amount as I do is plain stupidity and solely vote buying by the political class. Send all the illegals back along with their families! Get in line so those Pinoys and Pinays who are legally in line can obtain their visas and enter. Same with other legal applicants.

I CONCUR with all of us talking about the gyp that is social security, as of the end of this month I will retire at 63 because of bad health and I have already been told that there are "Things" that may decrease my benefits, huh? what? why? I put my money into SS on good faith, because that is what my parents, (Part of the GREATEST Generation, I may add), said I was supposed to do, as it was safe and would provide a supplement to my retirement!! Well that's seems not to be the case and I am probably way off topic, and for that folks I apologize. Hylndr

Hylndr62 - Yes, according to the SS Rules you have to wait until "Full Retirement Age", which is always changing, in order to get a certain level of monthly money. For you it is probably 66 years PLUS several months (4 to 6 months I think). If you wait until 70 years of age - which it sounds like you cannot do - you get a lot more money per month. If you start collecting even one month (?!?) before Full Retirement Age (FRA) you will most probably receive approximately HALF of that. If at all possible, wait until FRA. The reasi=on that SS does this is they calculate the average years that you probably have left and they figure if they give you the full amount you will use up what you put in over the years way before you pass on.

This topic that had been a focal point for a personal attacks against me has run its course. There are very shameful facts about a few that break the members agreement to do this because our monitor has hypocritically permitted them to do so. If fact in the 7 years I have been on this forum, the ironically named peacekeeper007 has permitted this as the longest running personal attack topic to be posted more frequently than any more meaningful ones about the Philippines that ever occurred . Continue your hypocritical work monitor. Keep entertaining the malcontents who can’t tolerate an opposing view because you are just like them. I will not repeat the embarrassing facts disclosed by the author of this topic since I did it in retaliation once before out of anger over the monitors setting aside the rules to permit repeated and foul personal attacks that were fake and the fake complaints some provided by recruits of the malcontents. I owe you an apology AcePoolzPlayer. Like I stated before in our personal messages, their are things we agree on, and I set aside any animosity I previously felt about your personal attacks against me. You may continue them as long as you wish. I’ll be silent and just delete them. Fini!

morgac, my father told me years ago the two best ways to stop an annoying bully are:

1) just be patient, very soon another bully will take him out

2) ignore the bully after a while they will get bored that their bullying does not work and go away on their own.

I think its easy on this forum to see the posters name and just ignore, I do it all the time. I just laugh and move on. But every once in awhile there are those that hit a nerve and I just cannot help it......LOL.

Acepoolplayer…………………...Seriously, SUG, declared himself a CO during VN. Escaped to Canada, now it's RP, and remains a vestige of a cowardly life. Entangling people in mental gymnastics is (I agree he's still here) his form of socializing. He reveals a lot of facts about important people, not knowledge, but facts. He extends his underhanded and vile tactics to 'bait' people into anger with libelous statements. He's a whirlwind of cerebral speculation, but there is no joy or life in the person. Antagonism on a computer is the closest he has ever come to being a 'man'. So, let him enjoy himself. He has no story, and he has no manhood or peace of mind...."Hasta la vista, Ba-b-e-e-e!"

A story about Social Security...

So several years ago my wife's sister came to the U.S. because she is a nurse and in demand. That's great, she works hard and contributes to our economy. She earned her citizenship. She also sponsored her parents who came here in their late sixties and became citizens. Here is the part that burns my ass.

They own a home in the Philippines and gave it to their children so they could qualify for social security. They live in a very nice home with their daughter and collect a check every month. They even get government provided cell phones.

They never worked here or contributed one penny to the system. They are my in laws and I love them. I don't blame them. I blame the system.

LovePhilly - I BLAME THEM AND THE SYSTEM!! You love them. They're you're In-Laws. Cool. Thy are NOT mine - but they are getting some of my money!! I am a small business owner and I literally work 7 days and nights a week. I go to bed between 3 AM and 6 AM and back up at 8 AM. A Vacation / Short week for me is 60 hours. Typical is 80 to 100 hours. I religiously take off Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. Once in a rare occasion, Easter. 4th of July - never - because of business demands. The first 4 months or more I work this relentless schedule to just pay taxes. I Salute you for your service. And you deserve MORE than what you get from both of your pensions plus Soc. Security. But guess what? I am 65 and have been working since I was 10 years old - and I don't get a pension. Next year I can start receiving Soc. Security - but that's it - after all these hard years of work. And those people get some of MY Money?!? And I wonder how often it is repeated? I am about to lose my mind!!!

Moderator: Why do you continue to post AcePoolPlayers personal attack against me dated August 12, 2019 in almost every Daily Update excepting a few? It in now September 18. You refuse to post my rebuke to AcePP which he announced himself on this Forum years ago. I make this rebuke about him to illustrate his poor character given to making false here-say digs about me. But you are far worse, since you should be held to a higher standard. You call yourself “peacekeeper007”, how ironic. You just want to stir up sh#t. Keep posting this bogus dated comment. I reveals how petty you really are. Everyone on this Forum can witness your cheap shots at me. I follow the Members Agreement, but I reserve the right to criticise you for being a hypocrite.

Yes Dark I agree. You shouldn't have to wait this long to receive your benefits. My mom still works as a teachers aid and she is 70. SS just isn't enough here by itself which is a great reason to live in the Philippines. You deserve a nice retirement after all those years and I think you will find it on those islands!

For me, I do have a small pension so I can't complain (the ex wife got the other one in the divorce). If I want the full SS benefit I have to wait until I'm almost 70 so I'll probably take the smaller amount at 62,

There has been an unnecessary allegation to one of our members who previously described his common experience of an impertinent, a$$hole,--an egotistical, self-centered. and devious Canadian who had escaped the VN draft decades ago. Surely, this could not be anyone other than SUG from the Davao area, who has not written on this blog for months, as far as I see. So, I assume he is simply having 'flashbacks' of some the nightmares that we all had of this phony returning. But SUG is gone! Let's lighten up, life is short. Be happy!

Moderator you never post my reply to this that Mr.AcePoolPlayer ran down a pedestrian, seriously injuring him and fled the scene of the accident though he was a trained doctor and could have provided first aid. He knew the motorcycle wasn’t registered in his name and hid out in the US. So why does he dis me? Who is the better man? Would I run off leaving a bleeding and injured man on the road that I hit?
