"Telling us our cost of living had not increased (through creative mathematics) in 2010 AND 2011"

apparently they haven't purchased peanut butter. That stuff has doubled in price in the USA in the last FEW years. I cannot believe how expensive it is..and that's just peanut butter!!

Food in general has gone up but shhhhhh... we're not supposed to let anyone know.
Oh yeah, that gas thing and energy in general.

Shouldn't July 4th now be called "Dependance Day"?

....of the need to hold governments responsible, especially on behalf of those who may not have a chance to do so themselves."....

Sure, sounds good to me. Only, 'Mr. Green' carries a lot more weight than the voice of the people. Face it, since big corporate lobbies and PACs run this country, the people haven't been in charge in a long time. I will vote in November to respect the brave men and women who have died to give me this privilege and to pay homage to our founders, but I sure don't expect those elections to bring about any meaningful change or curb the continued reduction of my civil liberties.

Actually; this country is kind of ran on the principles of the founding fathers:

Thanks for the link Cap'n, very interesting reading. I can always count on you to keep me straight! It seems the truth is just never that simple. This will be the 10th presidential election I've participated in and I have yet to see either political party stand up to big business. Bailing out Wall Street was much more important than giving seniors and the disabled a cost of living adjustment for 2 years in a row. Telling us our cost of living had not increased (through creative mathematics) in 2010 AND 2011 was a real slap in the face. Our government is too busy snooping in our emails, paying prostitutes for the Secret Service in Colombia, giving automatic weapons to Mexican drug lords and throwing a party in Las Vegas to care about the people who pay their salaries. Yup, just business as usual...just as our founders had intended??
