I knew the moment I posted something political on my blog site, I'd end up looking like an idiot...(See Below)As soon as I posted that, up pops a newsworthy statement telling all of America President Barack Obama has called on Congress to approve $250 payments to more than 50 million seniors to make up for no increase in Social Security next year. YES!!!...Hey, not all that much, but a little something is better than nothing, even though, yeah, I agree, it's mostly nothing. The Social Security Administration announced earlier today that there will be no cost of living increase next year. By law, increases are pegged to inflation, which has been negative this year.NEGATIVE???
WHAT THE F#&%???
Negative for whom???
They must not buy groceries where I buy mine. I don't know about you folks, but everytime I walk inside a super market, the new increased prices fairly jump off the shelves into my basket.Hell, I've stopped shopping at Wal/Mart and started buying all my groceries at the Dollar Store. I don't even buy fresh meat any more. I go buy the aisle and sniff it as I pass through on my way to the canned Spam, canned ham, canned tuna, canned chicken(I'm talking little cans here), canned Vienna sauages and potted meat. Oh, the variety of dishes I've learned to make with this crap!!! I feel blessed I can still afford these little cans, but without that senior citizen increase, I might have to go to berries and roots...Tabs
