Funny how Hyundai is mentioned so little. Waiting to test the "new cars" seems silly, as they have been out long enough and score fairly high. Reliability? If the Hyundai's of the last 5 or 6 years are any indication they will be reliable and well built. Honda and Toyota standards? Extremely close if not matched. And a...more
I think Americans are their own worst enemy when it comes to saving money and retirement. Of course our government sets a good example. Quit spending money like it's going out of style. It's always spend, spend, spend! Instead of save, save, save. If I don't absolutely need it, I don't buy it. I don't need fancy clothe...more
Wow this is a real interesting convo. Very interesting. I think part of what is happening right now is we are an aging nation. I was once younger and believed certain things I was told. By Government, the private sector, "the American Dream." Somewhere along that line the "dream" became making money and perhaps crushin...more
Being in my mid 40's with a modest but substantial savings I have started to think of retirement, but I also think I would like to work, yes...maybe until I die. I enjoy time off, but like my mother who is a healthy, active still working 68 year old woman whom people think is 50 (such is her good health) I think "what ...more
Well, I think the "just in case" part is good enough. Just like the military is funded in times of peace "just in case" to serve our interest.
Part of what got me thinking was I saw a show on TV called "Doomsday Preppers." It showed four families getting prepared for the very worst. Something very popular today among...more
One of the biggest problems is the USPS cannot make any major business moves without approval from Congress. And we all see how effective Congress is lately, and even years ago. And when I say Congress I do not mean THIS Congress in particular, but any Congress now or past, Dem controlled or Rep. They drag their feet w...more
The PO is something we all can support, as we pay directly for it's service. The fact of the matter is the PO and it's unions have OVERPAID into pension funds to the tune of upwards of $100B and the federal governrnment, which many claim is too big and are thieves, won't give ANY of it back so the PO can stay solvent....more
I have made a few posts, and this will be the last. What I want to do is to appeal to the conservatives, independents, and Tea Party supporters, as this debate sometime sounds political, but the PO is not a political organization. If you love your country, and I know you do, you will understand this.
We live in heavy...more
Guys, no one makes $85,000 a year working for the PO. I know a few 30yr Union Mailhandlers and their income is around $50,000 a year and change. They are civil service and pay into their pension funds and healthcare and Medicare. And yes wage freezes, and benefits have already been slashed. And the PO has not hired a c...more
