A government “fix” is like “fixing” a cat — it’s never quite right afterwards.
Well, the bean-counters at the Social Security Administration decided it was time for a Cost-of-Living adjustment (COLA) for beneficiaries. There wasn’t one last year. No inflation, they said. So the great adjustment for this year is 0.3% — about $4 per month for the average recipient. That’s one extra Big Mac per month.
Meanwhile, the Social Security Wage Base will go up 7.34%, from $118,500 to $127,200. How does that work?
Simple — they just use different calculations. The benefits are increased by the inflation rate, and the wage base (when there is a COLA) is increased based on the Average Wage Index. Isn’t that cute?
Well, it turns out that the Wage Base has increased 35% over the last twelve years, but the Cost-of-Living Adjustment has only given beneficiaries a 22% increase.
Does the word BOHICA mean anything to you?
As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton
Clinton was given executive power, and failed every time it mattered.
I’ll bet they leaked the questions to the Clinton campaign.
And already, both don’t answer the question.
Of course, Obama said Hillary is not fit to be president.
On to comments!
If you haven’t been watching it, you are missing out. I’m sure you can get a transcript tomorrow. The questions are very bias and, surprise, against Trump. What makes this show worth while is watching a bubbling idiot in the form of Timmy, interrupting at ever moment, using data from unreliable and friendly forces, and playing the “current affairs” card instead of dealing with the issues. He knows more of what Trump will do then Trump and Pence. Timmy proposes all the same lies as Hillzilla and then lies about what Trump wants. Pathetic. Low info voters will suck this up and vote Hillzilla. Didn’t we say the first time of Obama that “we told you so”? And hen, after 4 years of having Obama himself prove his ineptness and show his intent on the ruination of America, stupid people did it again? Why? Because Dems lie and the people suck it up. All Timmy is doing is lies, slander and mud slinging. Go figure.
Yeah, the swabbies are a little slow coming of age with other branches of service but the political assholes (read: government PC police) have the fix in and now there will be a better integrated and understandable Navy. I am throwing up in my mouth as I write this. I don’t even have the words to try any type justification of this madness and the words that come up against this BS would make even a sailor blush. I would ask you to just read the article and decide for your self. At the bottom on the right, in the “documents” section, it talks about the outline to bring enlisted women aboard our subs. Only liberals and idiots (redundancy) could dream stuff like this up. I will part with this: no longer will we call them “Navy corpseman”. Now it shall only be Navy corpse. How very appropo!
It has finally arrived. The Ultimate Debate Challenge. What we are about to see is what type of goofy questions can be asked to the presidential candidates. I’m sure The Corrupt One will have all the correct names of foreign dignitaries and procedures for negotiating. Then they will try to make Trump look like a fool novice and trip him up at every turn. What they don’t realize is that they are now in Trump’s wheelhouse. Sure, he has been doing great lately with a TelePrompTer and making some very astute and sensible arguments on a whole bevy of pertinent subjects. His plans on defense, terrorism, illegal immigration, the economy and law enforcement matters blow holes in the hollow shells of Hillzilla’s plans. Matter of fact, the only plan that is clear with The Corrupt One is how she will continue with corruption, enslavement, putting more people into poverty by taking more of their hard earned money and the general further destruction of America.
Trump won’t fall into this trapping of this lying con artist. Oh no! He will be Trump. He will find some matter of Hillzilla’s involvement in every question and attack, attack, attack. Hopefully he can do it with verve and skill while still being able to answer the question in a positive and hopeful light. Oh yes. Make points and accusations within the same breath. Hillbilly will turn some weird shade of red; trying to emmenate from under all that pancake makeup on her face. Her voice will become shrill and she will choke while trying to stifle the normal monster bitch from coming to the surface. She will feign some form of flu, dizziness, epileptic attack but it won’t work. It will only hasten her demise as the whole world will be watching. Then when the debate is over and her ratings tank, the world will know that she will be the next president. Why? Because she will be Hillzilla and do what Hillzilla does; have Trump killed and make it look like a suicide heart attach mugging. But it will still be worth the price of admission. Can’t wait.
