Double dipping is costly to taypayers

Oct. 03, 2012 @ 12:14 AM

Double dipping is costly to the taxpayer, hurts the unemployed and should be eliminated at all levels.

Don't retire until you are able to retire. If double dippers go back to the same job, then eliminate the pension income until they retire again.

Be sure to thank service personnel

We have many protectors in our lives.

Our United States military servicemen and women whose unselfishness and honor give us the freedoms that we share today. We thank them for their service to our country daily.

Our law enforcement young men and women who are on the front line of fighting crime very seldom get the thanks and the praise for the job they have been called to do, as they put their lives on the line daily. So, whether its the policeman in blue in our cities, the deputy working the county roads, the state trooper on the front line of crime fighting or the federal law enforcement personnel, let's take a minute to thank them for helping make our community, county and state a better and safer place to live.

A simple comment, a pat on the back, a "job well done," "be safe out there" mean a lot to these men and women, for it is with these they begin to know we appreciate what they do for us.
