Obamas' decree that there is no inflation thus no increase in SS payments is absurd. Prices are up 25-50% and in addition, packaged quantities are down 20-25%.

I can, so I will. And I'll spend far more on projects that help less fortunate folks have a better holiday, too.

Gee, Mike ~

I guess the 2% or so COLA I received doesn't really exist! Good thing I didn't spend any of it so far!

It actually comes out to several thousand dollars for my family, per month.

And Nick ~

I don't know what a "recipient class druggy" is supposed to be, but you're from North Hills, so I'm not going to take you seriously.

I agree that as you age, you have most of the things you need already, so there's less reason to desire or accept gifts. However, at Christmas time, there's still always kids in the family you can spoil. :)
