Re: Are You Afraid To Die?

James Wesley Chester ·
There is an apprehension. I don't look forward to it, though as I've said on this board, I really thought I would be dead by 50. I have a friend who always says he wants to die quietly in his sleep like his father, and not kicking and screaming like the other three guys who were in the car with him. PEACE Jim Chester

Interesting. So let me ask you MBM - you have some measure of wealth in your posession. A house, a car, computer equipment. Can we conclude that you have gotten these things as well from skullduggery and thuggery but just is lesser portion than they did? Did Michael Vic or Earl Graves, both of whom are millionaires receive their fortunes in the manner that you indicate? You are throwing out some gross generalizations today man.

ddouble said: What does being a "professional" have to do with love or being a good mate? ------------------------------------------------ High social-status (and the perks that go along with it); this is important to alot of men/women when choosing a mate. For many, love for a potential mate can ONLY occur if all the superficial elements are "correct" (house, car, job, clothes, social-connections, etc). I'm not hatin, this is just how some men/women operate.

High social status has nothing to do love IMO. Someone that craves a person's status before considering getting involved is not concerned with love . You called it right - it's superficial . Which is as far away from love as you can get.

These are the result of use and environmental factors. They must be fixed or replaced by consumers and businesses, but businesses make money on the consumers.

The ECONOMIC UNIT is just an abstract representation for many possible economic entities that all have certain things in common. It could be a single person living alone. It could be a family of 4. It could be a hippy commune. It could be a multi-billion dollar corporation. In some ways you could compare it to a water tank. Water flowing in is income. Water flowing out is expenses. But the tank is not prefect, there is leakage from the bottom which is depreciation. A single man living alone...

Well, what does the American Dream mean to you? To most I would think it is a good job, a family, a home, a car. What is wrong with that? Aren't you striving for those things? Don't you want MORE money in your bank account rather than LESS?

Let's not talk about a family (I've had that discussion elsewhere) - but if all we're talking about is material goods: car, money, home, job, etc. then sure this stuff is attainable for many of us. Yes I desire economic security and believe it can be achieved - at least speaking for myself. But is that all people mean when they talk about the American Dream? Aren't there all sorts of other warm fuzzy connotations that attach to the term?

First off, I think it's important for everyone to assess and reassess their goals frequently. Because life, and our lives don't remain static. So it is a great question to ask of ourselves - what is our version of the American (or Australian) dream?

The car is an asset. The house is an asset. The car would be an asset that just about certainly depreciates. The house could be an asset that appreciates but not necessarily.
