  •  I just received (9+ / 0-)

    notification from Social Security that my cost of living increase next year will amount to $11 a month.  That would buy two Whoppers at Burger King (if I could afford to eat at Burger King).  Funny.  I know the official inflation rate is close to zero, but that's not what it looks like when I go to the grocery store.  My rent just went from $498 a month to $630 a month.

    The Reptilians think that everybody should feel some pain, get some skin in the game.  So cut that Social Security.  We're just a bunch of whining welfare queens anyway.  I'd like to see any one of them live on what I get each month ($669) from Social Security.  I'll be happy to share some of my pain with them.
