    Since I agree with almost everything you post, I'd like to befriend you. You seem to be so refreshingly sane.

    I really appreciate your insightful and informative posts about U.S. geopolitical strategy. It's unlikely that many people could be as experienced/knowledgeable as you, but more people should be as aware, able to look beyond propaganda, and adjust their expectations and behaviors accordingly.

    Not only are you intelligent, your sarcastic wit is extraordinary. I'm getting an internet crush.

    Your efforts at enlightenment of the ignorant are mostly wasted. But, I admire your persistence.

    Too soon to rep you again in the "boomers ate their children's future" thread but just a "thanks" for posting truth and accuracy. Gives me a giggle when I watch you deflate their balloons with the facts. Keep all the great posts coming.

And now the OASI Trust Fund.

This is actually the combined OASDI Trust Funds. Yes, the DI Trust Fund will be history (shortly) but they'll just combine both functions for payment purposes (and that's one of the things that will cause the trust fund to fail faster).

This is almost as good as shopping at IGA.

I got my guitar out and played Redemption Song so I'm all better now.

Under the High-Cost Assumptions, the fail date is 2nd/3rd Quarter 2018 and 3rd/4th Quarter under your average GDP growth rate of 2.89%.

Okay, I have to apologize because it took me way longer than a few days to get his together.

The problem was the data was FUBAR. I'm looking through the Tables and other data (in addition to the annual trustee report there's long-range

Okay, the CPI-W came in at 228.184 for September.


That would be less than the 229 I was guestimating, in part because of this...

Electricity -1.5

...so electric rates in the
US declined (we're just not sure where that actually happened). It stacks up like this....

Once again, it's COLA Time. The concerns those people who are receiving OASI/OADI benefits or perhaps you who know someone receiving benefits.

It's also important to those who are caring for aging parents or other family members, and may [also] be responsible for their finances.

And let's not forget those people who are engaging in Elder Abuse, because, you know, they'll want to know if they have more money to spend.
