    In the meantime, the Federal Reserve Chairman is telling the government to spend as much money as they want to keep the economy afloat. Meantime, we retirees won't see any COLA next year. Seems to me that giving us a COLA would help the economy. That's government wisdom for you.

    A pint & a half pint come to mind. (no clue on prices now!) Mine goes to the groceries I'd be buying anyway! Speaking of which, the jerks have failed to auto-deposit this month's ck. so far! AND, still NO TRUMP CK. EITHER!

    Why would the government give more money to people who worked for their benefits and paid into the system for decades? Silly boy, increases are only for welfare recipients.

    MY deposits go straight to the Jim Beam distillery. They auto-ship directly to me.

    you can't put the words "government" and "wisdom" in the same sentence, unless there's a negation between them.

    When the Japs took ownership of Jim Beam, I switched to Makers or Woodford Reserve.
