I'm finally looking into it. Any tips ?
No joke. Even I don't have cable television, though I would swing for it if I wanted it bad enough and had the spare time. I could go my whole life without hearing another person bitch about how "corporate America" and Ronald Reagan fucked them out of all the things one is "entitled" to. Typically such a person will have a heaping bag of McDonald's food in one arm, a carton of smokes in the other, and be sitting his ass on a couch nicer than mine, watching a TV much larger than mine. Point is, anyone can afford to make some modest preparations for retirement and if you fail to do so, shame on you and double shame on you if you expect the ambitious entrepreneurs to pick up your slack.Originally posted by bigbutnottoo
The funds I use only require $50 a month for automatic investment and IMO most people would be really financially lazy if they could not find at least that much to invest. ( Especially considering the average "poor" person in the US has a home, car, microwave, computer, and cable televsion).
I understand your comments. I agree with the basic argument, but we would probably disagree on the percentage of people that fall into poverty due to poor decisions versus circumstance. I too don't want to hijack the thread. I have strong opinions on such matters, based on my life experiences, and sometimes sucumb to the urge to express them. I have been very vocal on other political sites, but try to stay committed to nothing more than penis size at MOS. Anything else is a distraction of my limited time resources.Originally posted by Swank
I would not like to turn this into a socipolitcal/economic debate, but I would like to comment on that briefly.
Please don't take this as any kind of argumentative comment penguins fan, I have enjoyed many of your other posts that I have come across, but I feel strongly on this topic (and will generally spout my opinion to anybody I can hold captive for a moment).
Glad to hear of your good tastes, but I fear that Lemieux may have little left in the tank at this point in his career. Either way, there is no talent surrounding him. The NHL looks like it's heading for a lockout and Pittsburgh doesn't appear to be getting the new facility it will need to bring in more fans. It's actually a sad time to be a Pens fan.I am also a huge hockey fan, long live Lemieux!
