Totally, agree, but I require a third element and have a fourth "want " that is not necessarily a requirement: Memory, Ambulation and Continence are totally taken for-granted till they are gone. Personally I would like to be able to keep push a clutch for bonus points.

Personally, I don't think its either the dems or republications that are destroying life in America as it could be, and once was, I think its the compulsively rich (who run both parties) that are creating the situation the liberals are reacting to. There's just not enough left to go around any more...

Finally, I am still hanging in there in the Aerospace industry - every day its a frantic battle to remain relevant. After all the years, my salary has a big target on it so I know I have to deliver on what they pay me. I would retire today but I go three kids to get through college so I battle on - I just hope I can keep up the pace...

How are you being taxed or your money you already have? Through a deferred annuity type plan with added benefits? So you didnt pay tax on it when you were paid and contributed now fiscal conservatives have reduced the amount you agreed to defer on the fed level and you're mad that your instate tax is used to promote your states free and low cost health care services? But a tax free org. can lie and coerce women?

....anyway yes, it is stated, many times over. If you cant believe that the core of the retarded right does not want to undo every progressive notion or social contract since the New Deal then you are out of the loop.

But ya, it sucks getting old and I have zero sympathy for anymore dotards.
Good Lord. I can't give the fringe much attention, but yes. Tax deferred savings on income.

You kinda lost me with the 1st post but this I can feel you on. At almost 50 turning wrenches isn't getting any easier.

I will absolutely stay out of the political side of this debate. I've learned my lesson. But one great thing @2nd 66 about turning wrenches that is good is you can't be outsourced. I turn wrenches for a living, and the only division of my industry that saw almost no job losses in 2008 was service. We can not be replaced by more efficient computers or outsourcing to India. Things will break, and I will fix them! I've got to agree with you though. It's getting quite hard on the body. (Mainly my hands.)

I still turn wrenches as a hobby but as I get older, I've have to make myself put whatever tool I was using back in the tool box otherwise I have a heck of a time remembering where I put it.

Oh Heck! I get halfway down to the barn/shop and can't remember WTH I went to get. Turn around and get almost back to the house and then remember the item.
get halfway down etc..........I get in a never ending loop if I don't completely focus all the way down and back.

I wish I was as old as I was the first time I started feeling old.

1970 Mach 1 M code
1990 5.0 LX Limited Edition

I keep noticing the DOT puts up signs to honor my burnouts. That's nice of them.

Hey, Even Shelby himself eventually went with a C4 Automatic with a '65-'68 Mustang T-Handle Automatic Shifter in his own 289 Cobra...

Am I rich, no, but like many here I have a Mustang in work in the garage. I don't have to fight traffic everyday anymore nor deal with the politics at work. Do I hurt, yes everyday, but that confirms I am still alive and kicking. In four months I go on Medicare and plan to get my knees fixed which should provide much needed relief. The new procedures for knee replacement are so advanced compared to just 10 or 15 years ago. I am grateful for everyday, pain or no.
Don't get your knees replaced, unless you're ok with a 50/50 chance of the replaced knee being worse than it was before it was replaced. Viscosupplementation, ideally with Hyalgan, is the fix you want. And it's covered by Medicare every 6 months. Regrow the cartilage in the knees, and the knees feel younger again. If you really want to make the knees better, prolotherapy is the next step up from Hyalgan, but not covered by insurance. I'm doing Hyalgan to lots of people that have had one replaced, and don't want to go thru it again, and are quite unhappy that they did.
