Losing his wife was very tramatic for him I believe. When you lose someone you love and your helpless to prevent it the experience does change you. I know that from personal experience. He's angry and in pain. I hope he can come to terms and be grateful for having someone so very special in his life. Some people never experience that kind of love and companionship and his life has been enriched for having known her and married her. At least that is my take on it!<quoted text>
He appeared he was smarter than that but also appeared to a very bitter individual too. I could actually stay right here and weather the storm as well but have been pondering that very thought for a few month now. As long as I am up here at the lake, I am pretty safe away from the thuggery for now anyway. It is with great hope when mid-term comes around the liberals will get their ass shellacked like last mid-term election. If not then I am definitely out of here.
Yes, we have prepared and I hate it for those that did not vote for this nonsense but didn’t prepare and will suffer through it anyway. You can believe that this year will be very revealing about what lays ahead and 2014 will be a lot worse. If majority vote for liberals then as bad as it will be there will be many like me leave it and when the capital leaves this country it should fold pretty quick. Another thing that is certain is businesses will continue to move all employees above the 50 employee mark and above to part time below 29 hours a week to avoid paying healthcare on them.
That kind of increase of people on Obamacare to have to pay it all will collapse that nonsense under its own weight. Those in States that do not setup a State exchange will not be required to purchase from a Federal plan because that is not in the law, just State Exchanges. One way or another the Beast (the government) will Starve, either lack of funds or bankrupt but the days of the Great Liberal Giveaway are going to be short lived. Greece is a perfect example how that works, total chaos.
Great to hear from you and will chat with you again soon.
As far as our economy it's in shambles and to say anything else is delusional. Greece,Spain,Portugal,Italy all have terrible debt issues and today I read an article that Moody's is downgrading the United Kingdom so we are starting to see the trend spread. The Quanitative Easing which our fed implemented was a temp bandaid placed on a critically serious wounds. Cosmetically looks good but in reality is no help to the patient whose bleeding and in desperate need of antibotics and blood transfusion. It amazes me that the feds are still telling us we don't really have an inflation problem when groceries have double on most products and many are triple the price of 2008. Fuel prices are through the roof and my healthcare premiums are over double what I paid in 2009. As you know I made the decision to sell my business interest last year. I had an opportunity to make a good (not great)profit and so far they have retained all employees. But, I also know they will no doubt reconsider what payroll/insurance is costing them with additional requirements and if minimum wage is increased I know those who work in entrance level jobs will be cut. Jobs will be combined or automated to save on cost. That's the reality of it. They told me to drop in anytime but I made the decision that once the paperwork was finalized I was finished. I wish them well, I had a lot of blood, sweat and tears invested but it was time to let it go. My husband retired as well so we have been taking some small trips to visit friends and relatives in Kansas,Missouri and Florida.
Good to hear you are doing well. Please give my regards to your family.
Till next time :-)
