I have no idea what you're talking about. And neither do you. But that doesn't seem to stop you.

<quoted text>Bullshit. I'm calling Bullshit. None of your remarks made after the announcement you're were leaving (how long ago was that that two, three hours?) was given answers the question. I could be the worst teacher ever, but that wouldn't relieve you of retiring early. I could cuss at or with all my students like a sailor, and that wouldn't stop your being an entitlement cheat. Personally, i think that eight year younger man you married should throw your worthless ass to the curb...don't worry about it, he probably won't since he doesn't exist, I'm done with you.
You really need to take a few deep breaths. You're getting hysterical.

Sorry if my past experiences upset you so. I'll refrain from mentioning them in the future if that will help.

(By the way...you posted "you're were leaving"...just returning the favor.)

Leave other people out of your pubescent lose-lose antics.
They don't work with me.

If anybody has anything they wish to say to me, they can say it directly, using their own Screen Name. If they are too cowardly to use their own Screen Name ... Then, so be it.

You are an imbecile, an ignoramus and a pest. Your obsessive, compulsive behavior needs to be medicated. It's severe. You're becoming a stalker. And harassing. Shall I?

You'll Be Gone ... After all, isn't that what you asked me to do to help YOU, against dem? Well, maybe I'll give you a taste of that bitter wormwood.

Go play elsewhere, pigpen.

Galt and your other cohorts here believe that teachers and most nurses are fkn parasites__useless to society. Just sayin.
And the raising the kid thing throws me, beyond my own two__I coached hundreds of others kids after work and on weekends and several to this day.
Nice to know you're the father of two and coached so many other kids. Hats off to you.

But unless you were the primary (or only) parent raising your children while holding down full-time jobs, it's not the same as if you weren't. Sorry, but it's not.

However, I was wrong to bring up my past experiences. But I took offense to your offensive remark about my "sht jobs". Should have added juggler to that list...trying to make parenthood and a second income work...just like all working women. Unless you've been there, you shouldn't judge.

Well, let me just say it again.
Obama's been "hobbled with the most obstructionist House in the history of the country" because Republicans refuse to help him destroy the economy faster and Obama refuses to negotiate policies based on his radical and self-gratifying political whims.
So I say to Republicans: Stand firm and don't budge an inch.

<quoted text>She didn't retire in the sense of the word. She decided to take her Social Security at age 62.
Not sure why__it can't be much, she's only had sht jobs that she really didn't stay at very long.
That is "if" she's been somewhat truthful about her life. No guarantees there__she could easily be a troll or flamewarrior..
Didn't want to retire at 62. Unfortunately, the type of work I had been doing for the past 15 years required near complete accuracy and extreme and intense focus transcribing physicians that were often quite difficult to understand and specialties that were quite involved with its own language. My 62-year-old brain isn't as sharp as it once was.

It wasn't that I wanted to retire. I knew how to do that job and was good at what I did. Just didn't have any choice. Starting over at 62 isn't always easy either. But I'm working on finding another part-time job in addition to the one I already have.

If it had been most any other job, I would have gladly continued to work another three years.

My parents and many of the older generation when I was younger retired at 60.

South Dakota GOP Lawmaker: Our Crazy Legislature Makes People Not Want To Live Here
South Dakota's legislature in recent years has served a laboratory for extreme conservative policies, and that has one Republican lawmaker in the state worried.
Among state Rep. Anne Hajek's (R) concerns is a proposed bill that would allow businesses to deny service to same-sex couples.
"The media picks up on these bills and people think about moving to South Dakota and they say,'Oh, crazies are out there," Hajek told television station KELO.
She called the legislation, currently being taken up in the state Senate, "scary."
Hajek also wasn't a fan of a bill that would have authorized elected officials to carry guns in public buildings. The House bill was rejected last week.
"I think there is legislation brought with the purpose of having a lot of discussion and having people spent a lot of time on it. It's frivolous, but it will keep us from doing the work we're supposed to be doing," Hajek said.

republicans.
the unemployment rate in South Dakota is 3.7%, so the state is obviously creating a lot better environment for business than a Communist like Obama.....

Three years after the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry -- a tragedy which exposed and ultimately ended Operation Fast and Furious -- the public is finally getting a glimpse into Terry's final moments.

Federal court records released Tuesday provide the first official account of the firefight along the Arizona-Mexico border that killed Terry in December 2010. Among other details, they reveal two of four federal agents at the scene that day actually fired bean bags -- not bullets -- at a violent drug gang carrying assault rifles. Weapons from the botched anti-gun trafficking program were found at Terry's murder scene.
