Re: “You're an Old Man!

The hilarious thing is that, by your mid 50's, you know that life will throw own it's special little fucks into such a miserable, vain creature.

Call it what you want, God's Will, kismet, Karma, balance of nature. This obnoxious shit isn't getting through life without a bunch of (well-deserved) lumps on his head.

Re: “There's No Place Like Home

Common sense dictates that you aren't going to get the pristine experience you seek at any place you can drive a RV to. Get out of your car, put on a pack, and put some miles on if you want to leave people behind.

If you want no people and no light pollution, try the Alford Desert or Steens Mountains. But go prepared, it's no-shit unforgiving country out there.

Re: “Mayor Charlie Hales Forbids City-Funded Travel to Indiana

OK, what about the 19 other states that have the same law?

Re: “Poverty Planet

No, they give $100K a year jobs out to people with drive and ambition.

People that are willing to scrimp and save all through high school to pay for their own college, and have the discipline to maintain a 4.0 average, so they can qualify for grants, and pay their loans off ahead of schedule.

As for PERS, thank 25 years of one-party rule in Oregon for that. Along with Tri-Met, CoverOregon, the CRC, and every thing else that has contributed to the economic downfall of this state.

Re: “Poverty Planet

You sir, are full of shit.

My niece went to OSU and graduated in '04. She blended her financing with savings and grants, about 1/3 was funded through student loans.

After college she worked two different jobs and saved enough for a small starter home.

After 10 years in her feild, has a software engineering job that she makes abt 100k at year at now. (More than I ever made in a year.) She has her home nearly paid for, and will pay off her student debt next year.

She is only about 30, and well ahead of where I was at her age. But, she has worked her ass off, been extremely frugal. Like I said, you just have to be willing to do what is necessary.

And, the financial ills of the world are not of my making, I earned every fucking penny of my retirement.

So you can sit there & snivel "my generation got fucked" all you want. It won't improve your life. Hard work, sacrifice, and planning will.
