  •  You have me pegged incorrectly (12+ / 0-)

    At 49 and having been a decent earner for most of my adult life, I want the money to which I am entitled and for which I have paid into mightily. God knows I'll need it. But if one of my kids moved elsewhere, built a satisfying life and invited me to join them, I'd do so in a heartbeat.

    My perspective may be unique to those who have experienced major health misadventures/ I survived a diagnosis by Stanford specialists who told be I was terminal with cancer some years back. They were wrong, but only because their diagnosis was incorrect.

    No one knows better than I that one weird medical thing risks yours and your family's complete economic destruction and the stress that imposes upon the aware primary breadwinner is ridiculous.

    Those of you who have not had the pleasure of this experience have no concept of how frail is your entire American existence.

    I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires. - Susan B. Anthony

        Unless he's acquiring some other country's citizenship, revoking his own is the next best thing to suicide.

        Being stateless (even if some other country chooses, for a hefty fee, of course, to issue him a passport) is about the worst thing that can happen to a person short of injury of pennilessness.

        Dogs from the street can have all the desirable qualities that one could want from pet dogs. Most adopted stray dogs are usually humble and exceptionally faithful to their owners as if they are grateful for this kindness. -- H.M. Bhumibol Adulyadej
