    I speak Spanish a little and love to talk to Mexicans about Mexico. They have health care but no other safety net that much. They work their asses off... I'd say that it's because their choice is to work or literally die maybe... besides, I swear that they are born workers..

    Personally the times of my life that I remember as being the best were the ones when I was not working, that's just me. The only way I'm going to work day in and day out is if the alternative is worse. Out of work and no car =happiness to me, I love hiking and shopping via the backpack and shanks mare method... Nonetheless I had a family and a house and I worked steady for three decades.. I pretty much didn't like it but I hadda do what I hadda...

    Trading is my answer to the dilemma of work vs poverty, I can automate, I can work just a couple of hours and be done for the day by 8:30 am PST.. WIN stands for Work is Nonprofit and it's more true with every jobless recovery that we have...

    your obsession with 15th century queens and assholes see central to your character.
    time for you to show a little humility.

    Here's how you collect UE. Log in computer with pin number, answer 4 or 5 questions - wait for check in mail. My daughters boyfriend was "once" to lazy to do this. I kicked his ass and then he did it (Steps 1 and 2) . Then his benefits ran out. Maybe someother lifetime he'll get a job.
  9. You left out the most important option: Speaking truth to power.
