Wow! You have the power to know what others think!


Got any opinions on the stock market? Do you know how all of those "investors" think?

This is not a comment, I'm just wondering if anyone understands how this would work if the couple had paid off their house over the years, had no mortgage, but was very low income.
A reverse mortgage I suppose.

How does a Medicaid pauperization work? It's the kind of thing we could all stand to understand. My guess is that a house, car, personal possessions are protected...which tells me that people tend to pay off houses, buy cars, etc. when their spouse is going down that road.

I have a rough idea what people do in terms of buying an annuity when they are trying to qualify a spouse for Medicaid, but I'm not sure what an optimal strategy would be for a single person. Maybe a partial answer is to hide some physical cash/gold somewhere.

And I always thought it was the Liberal Blue states that fought and OK'd the right to commit suicide.

As in WA where this took place.

Unless you have a religious belief system that is four square against allowing other people to end their lives, I can't see how left/right politics even enters into it.

Personally, I think it's downright evil to not allow people to bring everything to a close with some panache. It's the only thing you really own after all.

Just make sure you finish the job.

Maryland convicted a man of an attempted suicide charge last year.

Remember folks, the State owns your mind, body, and soul. Your life is served at its leisure.

Now get out there and vote!

A church in DeLand, Florida raised enough money to pay off the medical debt of 6,500 people in 5 counties in Central Florida. In addition, they are able to support 3 foster homes for a year.

They died at 76 and 77, which is decades longer than I expect to live.
