This was 2 weeks PRIOR — August 14, 1945 in New York.

August 15, 1945 (Japan time) was when Japan surrendered,
9-days after the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima and
6-days after Nagasaki.

The surrender papers were signed September 2, 1945.


72-years ago, TODAY. A day for sober remembrance. 

6 long years and 1 DAY after WW II began.

A glorious day for humanity.

We now need to be more vigilant than ever.

This was the War that was meant to end all future wars. Well, that has not happened.

I started collecting my Social Security as soon as I turned 62 — in 2015. I wasn’t going to wait. I paid in enough and I wanted to reap the benefits. I do not believe or agree with delaying when you start collecting.

I like the Social Security Administration (SSA). When I lived in Maryland, nearly 30-years ago, many of my neighbors worked for the SSA. The SSA is no perfect but they try and by and large I have found them to be very helpful.

Yes, I worry as to the future of Social Security. There are so many EASY fixes. First and foremost the max. contribution CAP should be abolished. Pay SS on all your earnings with NO Cap. That will help the funding no end.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was much a DAMN FINE president. What a stark contrast to what we have today. Yikes.
