Dispelling Disinformation

I will not repeat yesterday’s complaint that the Social Security goalpost has been moved for those of us born on or after 1960. “Full retirement age” changes from 65 to 67, for us youngsters.

This is a non-ad blog, aka clicks are not monetarily rewarded. I am a volunteer; only my ego is fed by numbers. Regardless, I do have some … Continue reading Who Won the House and Senate?
