    Any Teamster fortunate to attend the Delegate meet here in Vegas
    the past two elections knows what happened to the central States pension funds.

    Anybody go to part 2 and notice where Nyhan had to write a 2 page letter to a journalist explaining an investment in a Russian Bank? I had noticed several times in other paperwork that they had invested $77 millions in that bank. Nyhan explains it as an investment of $27 in a bond from a Russian bank and that we lost only $9. on that investment.

    Now call me a fool if you want but for a big fund like we used to have to invest $27.00 in anything vs $77 million; I would be more inclined to believe the 77 million than the $27.00.

    These people are inclined to throw around amounts in the millions like I throw around $20’s which is slowly coming to an end since I am looking at a huge cut.

    This is common sense. Why in the hell is our pension money going to foreign countries and it ends up a total loss?

    Those of you who think you may/will qualify for SNAP/ food stamps/ other gov’t benefits with the pending cuts; check out the minimums for your state. You will most likely be surprised that you are not low enough to qualify.
    They most likely planned this out so we have no way to get any aid. Too old and or disabled to get a part time job and make too much with pension and Social Security to get any help.
