Do you live in some isolated cave? The so-called public servant pensions and corruption are choking off entire states.
In Yonkers, more than 100 retired police officers and firefighters are collecting pensions greater than their pay when they were working. One of the youngest, Hugo Tassone, retired at 44 with a base pay of about $74,000 a year. His pension is now $101,333 a year.
Its what the system promised, said Mr. Tassone, now 47, adding that he did nothing wrong by adding lots of overtime to his base pay shortly before retiring.
Retired at 44?
A pension of $101,000?
I suggest you update and reboot yourself.
And quoting one demoncRAT city in the NE is not ALL of America. . .not by a long shot. You made a sweeping allegation and yet do not cite sources that impeach the retirement of all officers in all of America. Since you called all retirements of all officers lucrative then the responsibility is yours to prove that allegation. You have not done that. I suggest you reboot and clear your biases (one can hope. . .).
Knowing your ego will never allow you to admit how wrong your sweeping, no exception, generalization was, I move on. . .and as I do, anticipating your reply—you simply HAVE to reply, you can't help it—I direct you to my original Post and call Godwin's Law (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Godwin%27s+Law. . .replace “nazi’ with ‘bootlicker’. . .same thing)
