Regarding facts, in the contextRe: help in planing

Quote:
FORMAL NAME INFORMAL NAME % ALL DEATHS
(1) Diseases of the heart *heart attack (mainly) *28.5% *
(2) Malignant neoplasms *cancer *22.8% *
(3) Cerebrovascular disease *stroke *6.7% *
(4) Chronic lower respiratory disease *emphysema, chronic bronchitis *5.1% *
(5) Unintentional injuries *accidents *4.4% *
Ed, your data stated in the context of childhood deaths of course pertains to the 55 yo and older age group. *For example, death due to Alzheimer's in a 5 yo would be quite phenomenal and reportable. *

The number 1 cause of death in children and adolescents is accidents, including buckets, guns, ... and far surpasses all other causes, including diseases of the body.

Ed, that was quite a tirade, your not taking Rush's vitamins are you? Sounds like AM radio venom to me. I hope people don't think all N. MI people sound/act like this. Allthough we have the michigan militia, most michiganders are quite normal.....Shredder

Re: help in planing

I am happy Ed has joined us. It takes some pressure
off me, although it's not needed today as this is
"Kinder Gentler John Galt Day" (not to be confused with
Guy Fawks Day). Plus, he is a fellow shooter, big time
gun owner, liberal basher, and a "Yooper" to boot.
What's not to like

Peace and love.............and a "Can't we all just get along?" for good measure

JG

And another thing.............

Hey Shredder, by "Michigan Militia" did you mean The Posse Comitatis? Didn't know they were still in business. I used to love those guys.

Re: help in planing

To respond to all the liberals on this thread I will stop confusing you with the facts, I keep forgetting that libs run on emotion.
They must be that what do you call them these days? METROSEXUALS? I don't understand them, I think we used to just call them bisexual. at any rate, I do agree with some of what rush says, and I disagree with some of what he says. that is the difference between me and most liberals, most liberals follow blindly what the leaders spew.. so you get the party in the shape it is in today.
Run by old hippies that were good a growing high end pot but they did not change the world. and are pissed.
Sorry your plans did not work out. but we have a country to run and it is more important that letting you guys burn out. So just chill and smoke a fatty

As a liberal, I cherise my right to question all gov't policies, never 'smokes a fat one,' I do not run on emotions or blind acceptance. Which is probably why I am completely confused as to why you state you want to retire but are afraid to do you on a 835k nest egg and wifey who will continue to support you.

Quote:
draw 1k a month from the cd intrest, my wife pays most of the bills from her income, and I save what I make in cd's,
Are you earning less than 1k a month? That's all you are really talking about replacing. Are you perhaps buying into some archaic system of work-until- you- die or are disabled? That 'retired' in the 1930's when SSA was developed to 'push' older workers out of the work force so that younger ones could have a job. We have advanced to being able to relish that long deserved time off to pursue other interests.

Is the emotion you are running on fear of the unknown? If your body is indeed giving out, why do you continue to punish it when you obviously do not need to do so financially?

Will those guns truly protect you from that internalized fear? If everyone starts packing, including extremists & grandma's with poor vision, will you feel safer? Will you then be able to face what is preventing you from FIRE which you claim you want to do? And what do the two -- guns and investments -- have to do with each other anyway? Other than buying stock in gun companies

Re: help in planing

gayl, I believe that the gun collecting was only a hobby for Ed. Packing a weapon to protect oneself is a right that everyone should have under the constitution. That does not mean that every law abiding citizen would avail themselfs of this right. In fact usually only a few percent of the people actually are carrying in gun legal states. But these few strike fear in would-be thiefs. Sort of like russian roulette.

Re: help in planing

My real point is that one has nothing to do with the other. Either you are financially and emotionally ready for ER or you aren't ... carrying a gun isn't going to make you any more or less prepared for the uncertainties that living off your investments / pension require. Political affiliation should not have a bearing on the issues in this venue .... unless you really think Uncle Sam is looking forward to sharing your house *:P

Re: help in planing

This is a serious question. If you have a permit
to carry a gun must it be concealed?

I have often thought it might be a good thing to
have a gun when I collect the laundromat receipts.
But it seems to me that it would be better to wear
the gun where would be robbers could see it as it
might scare them off.

What say you?

Charlie

Here in Nevada you can carry exposed without a permit. You need a permit to carry concealed. Supposedly the cops want to be able to see you have a gun on your person if you haven't been through the permit process.

Re: help in planing

Here in Texas I wouldn't recommend that you walk around with an exposed gun. Deputy Dawg is a tad to quick with his trigger finger and believe me you and your family would be trying to understand why you decided to pull your weapon.I hear some folks even put one in their boot - I swear to God!!! What is that Bat Masterson??

Most are very conservative ignorant asses that like to meet at the coffee/donut shop and use racial slurs and talk about the good ole days.

However, there is one exception that deserves mention - beautiful AUSTIN. Try it you'll love it!!!!

Re: help in planing

Austin is one place in Texas where I refuse to set foot. The Austonians are likely relieved to learn this fact.
I view Austin as a wart on the nose of an otherwise
beautiful woman.

Re: help in planing

JG,
Austin is a fine city; probably the best large city in Texas and probably a competitor for great city in entire U.S. The biggest problem in Austin is growth; traffic snarls everything everywhere. 6th Street reminds me of Bourbon, without the Strip shows.

And just why don't you like Austin? Could it be politics

Re: help in planing

Hey john, I was told a good one about guns today, a fellow told me he was talking at work about owning guns, a coworker came up and said that they were good for nothing but killing, so he was equiped for killing people.
He said I looked at her and said and you are equiped for being a prostitute, It is how we use what we have that makes all the difference, but libs just will never get it. lmao

If this really happened, this poor schmuck will spend the rest of his life in sexual harrassment class.
