If you factor in the inflation of food & fuel (which is now excluded), real growth is slightly negative.
Seems to me, that according to the will (and the wishes of her deceased husband), those who contest it only receive $5. What HR wants to do when she dies is another matter.
No pensions for elected officials. 401K-type plans for everyone else. All laws apply to gov't employees from the President to the lowliest paper pusher.
Sounds like we need to have "Pop Tart Protests" and contests to see who can make the best weapon. Are any of you Millennial students up to the challenge?

Sounds like you are in San Bernardino, CA.
The House Republicans are playing a fools game. They are essentially saying, "Let's dig the debt hole a little less deeper than the Democrats." In reality, we are still approaching national insolvency, just a little slower than if the Democrats had free rein. When you are near the edge of the cliff, there is no compromise between the one who wants to step away and the one who wants to take a large step over. The little step over is just as deadly. In the real world, there is no compromise between financial solvency (paying your debts) and bankruptcy, it is one or the other. The only difference, is when countries go bankrupt, the result is a breakdown in markets and violence in the streets.

A complimentary action would be to assign these enviro-forest service flunkies to get off their collective fannies and earn their pay by digging dirt, moving boulders, and hauling pipe with their bare hands. (If wheelbarrows are machines, so are shovels.) Then maybe they would rethink their policies.

Why is a Donkey the symbol of the Democratic Party? Because they are the party of Abortion, Sodomy & Socialism.
