The difference is that if I knew my insurance company was bankrupt, I'd stop paying the premiums. With SS, I don't have that choice.

Sure you do! - A couple of choices

1.) Quit working

2.) Leave the Country

Re: So who will pay our SS?

I have to take issue with you on this one jarhead.*
While it's true you may not feel like you are getting anything for your insurance dollars, I consider that quite different from money spent for Ho's.* With Ho's, you should be getting instant gratification for your expenditures.* If not, maybe it's time to get some quotes elsewhere.*
Just my two cents.

Yep, I think I just got "blind-sided" from our friend JPatrick.

JPatrick: Good one, but no fair masking by using a frown instead of a smiley. (Did Cube-Rat put you up to this?)

90 minutes of cardio? Well, you more than likely would kill me, but what a way to go.!

If you run into JG or HH, tell him REW says "hi!" (or is that "ho"?).

JPatrick: Do you ever have the feeling that you are a pair of brown shoes, and the rest of the world is wearing a blue suit?

You "nailed" me good on the Ho's. conversation.

I just got back from playing golf, and not too happy about the way I played.

On the way "up the hill", on the radio, I heard that the team I had some money on. (49"s) lost their only reliable corner-back with a broken leg, and they allowed a 108 yard return to end to first half.

Cube-Rat, (If she plays her cards right, will have a farily good case for "sexual harrasment charges".

All in all, not a great day so far, so I bid you a fond goodbye, and hope the 49'rs. can get their
-hit together in the last half to salvage a very, very bad day.

Jarhead

Cutthroat: Golf is like any other competitive sport, (Baseball, Basketball, Football, etc.) high/highs, and low/lows.
Fly-fishing (to me) is a relaxing diversion from competition. At my age, I should concentrate on more fly-fishing.
