    yes, and a friend said it this way (to a bunch of teenagers, one was my son), you can work hard for 4 years getting an education that makes your life easier, or you can work hard the rest of your life while regretting not getting that education. I am not saying that college is for everybody, you can do just as well with good technical training. I got mine in the navy....

    and when you say that "his comments were Marxist-esque " is inferring/implying what?

I did manage to grow some after high school, up to 5' 10", but was still skinny as a rail. She was right, I wasn't about to make money with my body. And you shouldn't depend on it either. I have a relative who screwed up his knees while still in high school, and now that he is 60, he really suffers. That can happen to any one at any time.
    At the least, make sure you have good disability insurance. Stuff happens, and it is always unexpected...
    My dad died on May 10th. That was a Monday. He was at work Friday. He was 75. My grandfather died on his tractor one fall morning, while we were trying to up-root a stump back in 1979. He was 76. My g-grandfather came home from work, ate supper, took a bath, went to bed and was gone before the sun came up. He was 74. It's a family tradition. I come from a family of hard workin' self employed folks that always had the inate ability to what we had to do.

    Ultimately, I've made my decisions and I'm the one that has to live with them. cum, ****, or bleed. And, I don't want the government getting up in my ****.

    But, that's not the rule, nor is it any kind of guarantee. That's my point. At the end of the day, no employer is going to come to you. You have to go find the employer and simply walking in and dropping off a resume doesn't cut it.

    A dude emailed me a resume last week; an impressive resume, at that. I emailed him back and said that if that was a display of his gumption, then he's not what I'm looking for.

    Sure do, now were getting somewhere. So you’re saying that UtahBill has the following qualities “indicating style, manner, resemblance, or distinctive character” to “Karl Maex”?

    Believe me, I don’t enjoy seeing you wiggle and squirm likes this apdst but it is for the good of DP that I put you thru this. Some of our newer members might have not seen what a dishonest poster you are. Now they can see for themselves.

    Is this really the extint of your contribution to this thread? Because, if you think I give a crap what you think about my posts, good buddy, you're certainly wasting your time.

    So, now you're going to pick on my spelling? Is this your idea of, "contribution to the discussion", good buddy?

    he called it
    said you would squirm and wiggle
    nailed you on your karl marx comparison you insisted was not made
    and you now squirm and wiggle

    explain it ... or admit you made an inaccurate comparison
    but quit denying the obvious
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed
