    Good job Social Security !
    I’m very pleased to finally have access to my Social Security account outside the US. It’s great to have direct access to my account and have instant access and control important aspects of my account and benefits.

    Rich Jewish people control the U.S. Media and what we watch. Their lobbyists control Congress and influence the White House including the President.

    Isreal didn’t want to become part of NATO so they can collect billions of dollars each year from us. Former President Trump said NATO has to pay us for our cost of defending them, but Isreal is not a part of NATO and gets billions which they do not have to pay back.

    Isreal evacuated all the civilians from buildings and hospitals then blows them up. They control the U.S. media and shows us the destruction from the fighting. The Israeli military are the only ones destroy all these buildings. Hamas isn’t going to destroy their homes.

    The Talibans abandon their homes, buildings, and airport and let the U.S. occupy it. Once the U.S. left, they took back everything.

    Hamas went running like the Talibans, but Isreal is blowing up all their homes, buildings, and ports. The U.S. has to spend tens of millions building a new port to deliver humanitarian aid. The U.S. and the United Nation will probably have to spend billions to rebuild Gaza. After we rebuild their country, Hamas militants will come back and take back everything.

    How about living in Philippines so we can afford to retire. We can’t because s s won’t cover our doctor bills in foreign countries. Have to live in USA in poverty?

    • Tony

      Poverty here is still better than people living in poverty over there.

      The U.S. government is giving billions of dollars to the Philippines military. We don’t want to pay billions more to their doctors and hospitals.

      We borrow billions from China to pay the Philippines military to keep China from invading. China threatened to invade the Philippines and we have to borrow billions from China. It seem like a scam to get our money and put us into debt.

      Isreal and Hamas are at war, but we have to pay billion to Isreal and spend billions in humanitarian aid to the Palestinians.

      Then you got Isreal and Iran shooting missles at each other, but cannot target civilians due to international law. There is not casualties. Isreal is putting up a fireworks show with Iran and making us pay for it.

      Ukraine is putting up their fireworks show with Russia and we are paying billions for the fireworks show. Billions of dollars in ammunition and hardly anyone is killed.

      They know where the Hamas leader and Putin are located, but no missles are aimed at them. It is just a fireworks show costing us billions.

        My brother’s friends is making good money now because the ammunition company he owns is selling a lot of ammo to the U.S. military. The U.S. is stock piling conventional weapons because they cannot use nuclear weapons.

        Russia is running out of conventional weapons and has to buy from North Korea.

        My brother’s friend isn’t selling weapons to the U.S. military, he is selling fireworks.

    My buddy Jerry is too poor to go on vacation. His conservative Republican candidate lost to a moderate Republican candidate. He won’t have the door knocker job this year harassing people at their home to vote Republican.

    Knew most of this, BEFORE traveling.
