May be in wrong place, how many have checked their SSA benefits for next year to see the COLA increase.

I can relate (at length, with detailed stories) to more than half the posts in this thread. But I'm trying to think of something earlier than expected in my life that doesn't just repeat points already made.

How about this story that I've told before: In my late 30s, a porn star adopted me as a surrogate father figure. At no point did she have a single thought that included me and sex at the same time. I was just an older guy she was comfortable talking to.

To be fair, she was still a teenager but still, it kinda stung the ego a bit. I responded by acting out with a couple of other (legal) teenagers...but that's a story for another day.
Do you have the names of the porn girls so I can see how hot they are?

Do you have the names...?
Of course. But I'd never publish them here. Refer to the "Beer Flu" thread and you'll see I've never published any of my photos of unclothed women there, either.

I'm perfectly willing to talk about some of the stupid and/or salacious shit I've done in my life but I'm not dragging anyone else into it.

Except Ron Jeremy. Screw him. I'll tell folks as many stories as I have about that jerk.

At 55 I rode my motorcycle around the U.S. for a little over two months with a pup tent I called home. On one of those days I decided to get my 'iron butt' award, travelling from Twin Falls, Idaho to Lincoln, Nebraska in 19 hours. Although I still love to ride over 9 years later, I'm not sure I could put my body through what I once had.

If the dismissal was due to not being physically or mentally able to do the job, it is legal.

If it was simply based on his age, it's illegal.

The purpose of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA, Public Law 90-202) was to promote employment of older persons based on their ability rather than age; but in this case, it appears he wasn't actually able to continue to do the job.

However, that should have been readily apparent, and something which could easily be demonstrated.

Yes. It was, partially. Under the SS Disability rule for people over a certain age, they go back into past jobs, 15yrs I think, and if you can do any of that work, then you get denied.

After 2yrs of denials and appeals, I finally got my day in front of the judge. My lawyer from Heard and Smith, a national firm, hadn't even read my file and during the hearing sat there and said nothing.

Anyway, after the third party doc confirmed I could no longer do that job, they said I could still do Rep work, as in Air Life of Oregon Representative.... problem is there wasn't a job in that field. So they said I could answer telephones somewhere. I thought they were violating the equal pay clause, but my lawyer didn't object. Judge chewed me out.

Too long of a story.
