I’ve come to the conclusion that the old adage, “No news is good news” is a bunch of baloney. Some people simply see no reason to bother their friends and family with the bad news.
A case in point is a high-school classmate of mine who recently died of cancer. I’d seen him less than six months prior to his death and he gave no indication that he was fighting for his life. Evidently, he didn’t bother talking to his doctor either.
What scares me the most is what our politicians are doing. I’m hearing lots of rumors about gun control and other actions that would strip us of our constitutional rights.
The rumor that scares me the most is the one about Uncle Sam confiscating all of our 401-K, IRA, and any other personal retirement savings plans and throwing all the money over to the Social Security Administration. Our hard-earned and saved money would then become “community property” and be doled out to all of us. Another bail out! This time the recipients would be the people who made no effort to save for their old age.
It’s 2009. Do you know what your representatives are up to?
