    Is a huge issue, especially when indexed for cost of living and inflation.  

    Sure, I make more than I did when I was in my 20s, but housing, utilities, and groceries are a whale of a lot more expensive than they were 20 years ago, so I'm in basically the same economic shape I was in then, which is not good considering that the prospect of retirement is looking more and more impossible.

    We do not forgive. We do not forget. The whole world is watching.

        The exact origin of this is in dispute, but it has been around since 1947...

        For a better America, vote the GOP out of office whenever and wherever possible and as soon (and as often) as possible!
