    COLA? It's been so long since I got one of those that I have forgotten what it is...

    Political fear mongering.

    I wrote to Obama about this bullshit on Sunday... in my weekly email.

    We've had everything else, maybe it's time for a "Million Veteran" march on Washington.

    COLA, as with many things in life, comes with its own rewards and responsibilities when you get to be the first one to tap it.

    Bernanke says we risk deflation so there should be no COLA.

    If the government wants to cut the defense budget then they should insulate the tents in Afghanistan & Iraq. Half of the war budget is spent air-conditioning the desert over there. Studies have proven that insulation would cut that A/C bill by 92% & save 1,000 US lives.

    Just another case of stupid complacent government inefficiencies.

    If it helps knowing that Reagan put all federal bureaucrats on Social Security and a 401-K style savings plan starting in 1984, essentially doing away with the 'cushy' FIRS program, let it.

    Armed with that knowledge, consider voting against an old white haired dude that's been creeping around DC since the late 70's.

    Side notes: All Federal employees hired before 1984 got to keep FIRS, Reagan included.
