Per vaughn:

Somebody who knows: correct me... but my understanding is that
they're cooking the books on SS COLA by exempting fuel and food
from the cost-of-living computation.

I am not sure of the details, but yes, they are "cooking the books".  Of course,
if they stopped their shenanigans, then the SS fund would be in trouble that
much quicker.

Your government wants it's people to eat less anyway.

LOL

If that's so, the COLA would tend to be negative, at least for the the last year
or so, and guess what, it was.

Ah yes, the imaginary Mayberry years, when the funds for school metal
detectors came from bake sales, and Andy and Barney patrolled the
halls for free, and kids on drugs were rehabilitated by Aunt Bee.

 Anyway, let's see some references for your claims about tax rates.


Hell ya', regulations cost money, plus they drive up costs. For
example, it was way cheaper to have 2 water fountains. <snorf> Then
the regulations came and everybody had to pay to take one out. Wait a
minute, what about the Jim Crow regulations? Were those purchased in
bulk, thereby making them cheaper than newer regulations?



Again, let's see some references. The idea that government is standing
in the way of charity is delusional. Charities complain that donations
are down and that the organizations are stretched thin or already
broken. I don't remember any of them complaining that they have a big
pot of money that they're not allowed to give away. Sheesh. Read this

and show me where it says that government is the problem.
