Haven’t posted any for a few days. As always,copied and pasted from Ned’s page…
Eric Conn fiasco update-despite the fact that the arrogant bureaucrats at the Social Security Administration know our request for preliminary injunction to stop their hearings is pending before the Federal Judge, they are moving ahead with their threat to have 1470 hearings starting in September and ending in December.(Been advised that some of you received hearing date notices).
If you received notice of a hearing date , and you don’t have counsel, contact Apple-Red using the contact information below. This is serious. Just because you are truly disabled, do not think they won’t take your benefits away.
Once we get a ruling from the Federal Court will notify promptly. Promise that we will keep battling these shameful actions by the SSA. Share with those affected”
Not really related to the fisaco,but also…
Devastated to report that former Louisa attorney Bradley Wallace has passed away. Once upon a time we shared the joy with Brad ‘ s wonderful.patents, Virgil and Patty Wallace. of Brad passing the Kentucky bar exam. Brad took over the law practice of my late friend Kim Wright, and began a promising career of practicing law in his hometown of Louisa. Brad was one of the most gifted law clerks who ever worked for me. Tragically Brad ‘ s career and life deteriorated into a downward spiral due to addiction issues. Was advised he was found dead in Louisville this week. He was 57. Heartbreaking.”
I have not,as of yet,received such a notice,though I know it’s only a matter of time. The Wife has a long time friend who lives an hour or so away that she’s still close with (they talk often,we visit on rare occasions). I understand this is “hear-say”,but knowing the source well enough to trust her at her word…she has a friend who is disabled from multiple back surgeries/injuries,who spends most of her days much worse off than I. She went through a similar process/fiasco over the past year,and with legal representation ,she lost her income* after having been receiving it for over a decade. Not only that,the SSA has visciously attacked her finances and is forcing her to repay $10k of it (I’m supposing one still can’t squeeze blood from a turnip,as they say,but I don’t know what the SSA is doing to collect it,The Wife’s friend is supposed to find out for us).
Let’s not forget the timing of the SSA’s “proud announcement” being too convenient to be coincidence that “as early as early 2017,millions of illegal aliens (er…excuse me,”immigrants granted Amnesty”,smh) will be drawing disability income…”. This is not the same once proud Nation that I fought and bled for :'( I can tell you one thing,if they come for mine and take it away (when by their own guidelines and recent re-evaluation,I’m elligible,and having paid into it since the 1980’s at 15 years old,not the least of which voluntary military service…),I will be most interested in discussing “recovering overpayment”…specifically,every penny that I have ever paid into what will be proven as a scam on the American people to defraud them of their hard earned moneys.
Either they abide by their own ruling that I’m elligible and pay me what they owe me,that I myself paid for mind you,or they give it all back. It’s not their money (it never was,and never will be),it’s mine,I paid for it,and they cannot keep it (to attempt to do so,is them admitting that they stole it from all of us to begin with). They can’t have it both ways,they can either pay out what’s owed/due,or give back what they forcibly took from every paycheck ever earned. That’s the opinion of this US Army Veteran who served Honorably,anyways…
*It’s my understanding that fortunately for her,her family is still living and she’s had to move back home (I’m assuming based on conversation about her,she’s about my age,early-mid 40’s) with her parents,as she’s unable to work and would otherwise have found herself not only desperate for food,but also homeless. I bet the SSA is really proud of itself. I know I couldn’t sleep at night if I were so disgraceful,so despicable,so without any Honor what-so-ever…but that’s me,I’m not the SSA or anyone who works for them (thereby condoning what it does as an entity).
