    Speaking of rainy days and the need for emergency monies: I was on my way to a fantastic retirement fund, then I had to fight cancer and after that take care of my Mom, I started over, fun fun.

    No savings. No assets. No income.

    I'll start saving money when I start having some coming in.

    Re: Do you have money saved?

    I save when I am able. My life has been full of ups and down, financial successes and disasters. When times are good I save all I can and that has carried me threw many bad times. Unfortunately it often left me with little in the end but I personally never viewed money as the end all to life. Right now Im twenty some years out from normal retirement age without a nickel saved but the thought of working the rest of my life, health permitting, doesn't bother me. I would rather enjoy life along the way than to miss out on opportunities so that I might have more when Im to old to really enjoy it.

    Yes, I've been saving since I got into the private sector. Retirement, 401K, stock funds - I think I had 16% taken out of my paycheck and only in the last 5 years reduced it to 11%. My life span is probably going to be somewhere in the 70's so I got a good 17 years left to work and then I should be able to live the rest the way I'm accustomed to live and then leave the rest to the wife or whomever is left. Probably need to think about setting up a pre-tax private trust once I'm ready to retire.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I don't save money (other then my investments)...I make it and spend it.

    If I need more for a rainy day? It's called available credit.

    Re: Do you have money saved?

    I'll start saving money when I am out of student loan debt. Every extra dollar goes to getting out of that hole.

    Well technically I have some precious metals, but they're not for a rainy day nor do I consider them savings.
