Re: When should you take Social Security

Good advice there Metal. Kids as well as parents and educators also need to be reminded once in a while that there are plenty of high paying jobs and good careers out there that don't require a college degree.

You'll love HD. Assuming you spring for the HD cable service.

Re: Get Ready For The Outrage!

Welcome to the echo chamber, ladies and gentleman. This story must be making the rounds again (Washington Times turn, I guess) or were 13 posts on this exact same story on this exact same board a few days ago not enough for everyone? [more]

Re: When should you take Social Security

Persistence. Don't give up, don't quit. Probably even more important than genius. Lots of failed geniuses. Persistence and hard work, and avoid the pitfalls in life, like alcoholism and drugs, etc. and you can be successful, at least here in the [more]

Re: Why Officer Wilson won't go to jail

I agree. Officer Wilson should have let the thug keep walking down the middle of the street. If I were a LEO I would not try too hard to enforce the law in an African 'hood. It's not worth your career or physical [more]

Re: FitBit anyone?

If anyone else has a Fitbit I would love to hear from you.


Hi Maryanne,

My daughter loves her FitBit.

I myself use a pedometer and some days I do 10,000 steps, some days more, some days less. We do much less walking [more]

Re: Why Officer Wilson won't go to jail

I'm afraid if they let that Policeman go there will be an explosion of race riots, especially around that area of Missouri. I'm sure I'm not the only one to think of that. He might turn out to be the sacrificial pig!

Re: When should you take Social Security

As of now, I don't have any plans to help with their college. I tend to disagree with the prevailing culture attitude that parents/grandparents should put away tens of thousands of $ for college.



My two kids were very well educated [more]

Re: When should you take Social Security

I expect to do something similar. DW will file at 62 (she is a few years older than me) then when I file, she'll file against mine and get a few hundred extra.

Re: Dressing up -- shoes

I wore Munro sandals to my daughters wedding. I could not dance because I had suffered a massive blood clot in my right leg the year before.
Anyway, they were very comfortable and I got them at a huge discount.

Re: When should you take Social Security

That is essentially what I am planning on doing. Only I'm going to start on mine and then roll over to my wife's after she retires and starts social security.... I think.

Re: When should you take Social Security

When should I start - age 62 or age 70?



I took mine at 62. My husband waited until he was 65.
He was going to get laid off anyway and there was no pension plan for him at that company so he had to take his at 65.
When my [more]

Re: Obama Delay Killed Foley

You said Jarrett convinced Obama to delay it to increase the chances it'd succeed.

No, you said that, and Brooklyn agreed without realizing to what she was agreeing.

Re: Obama Delay Killed Foley

Do you realize you're saying Jarrett delayed the OBL assassination because she wanted to increase the odds that it would work? And that might be a reason the Obama administration delayed the rescue operation, to improve the chances of its success? [more]

Again, how is a rescue operation that takes place six weeks before a hostage is murdered "too late?"


I thought I answered this for you. It was too late because the administration delayed the rescue for THIRTY days!
