    I have to say this was another major contributor to my decision. I believe a national defense is THE most important role of our government and I support the resent "excursions" being they are working to make sure a war is fought on other turf than our own, but due to recent revisions of war policy the military's hand have been tied by the liberal revisions to rules of engagement that are a main contributor to the monumental increase in american casualties on the Afghan front. I also feel sorry for our boys in the national guard and the possibilities of what they may be asked to do in the future...

    I work as a freelancer either by being temporarily employed (salary) or bill my clients through the micro enterprise which I own.

    Can't even begin to tell you how complicated my tax declarations are having both the independent and the employee status.

    I'm sorry to hear that, and its sad that you can only expect worse in the future.

    I've been managing the situation quite well actually.

    I do have all the benefits of health care and when I work as an employee I get unemployment compensations during the months in which I don't work.

    The big problems is though, that there are less and less jobs in the press and I'm getting less and less calls which is worrying me.

    I'm about to begin a multimedia training course though because the whole press is shifting toward the internet, hoping to get a full time job and drop the freelance situation.

    I'm honestly not interested in making loads of money. Just enough to be able to pursue my career which I love and have been pursuing for the past 25 years.
