I know that...deppity is soooo against health insurance but loves SS, which runs on the same principles as insurance that he despises...Go figure.
Glad to know you are talking to me again though!
The problem with Health insurance is that you can pay into it for most of a lifetime, and become disqualified to receive any benefits when you need them. Social Security is a guaranteed benefit that has never missed a payment. Your trying to compare them is not valid.
Yes, but when we did the project we were comparing SS to various other ways of investing the same amount of money. SS lost big time.
Now the important question for you.
How are mommy and puppy doing?
Both mom and pup are doing beautifully. The pup weighed in at 26-27 ounces this morning - 3 1/2 days. That is almost twice the size of average pups at that age (assuming 9-10 pup litters, and about 5 ounces heavier than the biggest pup I have ever had at a similar age. However, she is still skinny and a wiry, squirming mass of muscle. When the vet removed her dew claws yesterday, they needed a third person to help hold. I'm going to have to have a special leather suit and mask made up for her, because she certainly acts like a dominatrix in the making.
