By: Mike McDaniel It was inevitable in a political climate characterized by active insanity and red-eyed, screaming, violent hatred. It is particularly ironic that it was a card-carrying Progressive that did it. After all, progressives are all about feelings. They pride themselves on being inclusive, tolerant and compassionate, and being the champions of the people. Apparently, “the people” does not include the widows of genuine American heroes like Ryan Owen, the Navy SEAL recently killed in a raid on a terrorist facility in Yemen. This is how I characterized it in an article on President Trump’s speech before a joint session of Congress on February 28, 2017:
Due to a change in Social Security regulations that took place on April 30th 2016, you can now add as much as a potential $570 to your monthly benefits… Just by contacting the SS administration and saying ONE simple word.
That’s an extra $6,840 a year!
