Usually I don't start threads. I saw a thread in prschology that mentioned persistence re making money. I use 8 doublings of money velocity as my model for going from novice to expert. For me all making of money is based upon the compound interest folmula with the one caveat that you take your inital capital out to elminate every having to lose money over your wealth building career. I suggest it for psychololgical reasons. I looked at the author's bio of the persistence article and the statement Baron made when he through me out of ET because a group of like minded people could not handle the three thinkgs they determined for Baron that I did here. See just below. bubba7 / Jack Hershey has been banned due to numerous complaints from other members recently. As a result, this thread has been closed. Keep in mind that although we have moderators, ET is largely self-regulated. So if I get an abnormal number of complaints from other members about the same user being disruptive, annoying, abusive, etc., then that user is gonna get booted out - no questions asked. Right now I am being disruptive, annoying and abusive to those involved with Medicare D. I am old so I get mail from SSA and CMS. I also read stuff and at this point it has taken me to a point where I am revealing whats wrong and I am providing a small persistent cure for the problem a la the style of thinking of the guy whose bio I mentiioned just above. I will do a series of post here to play out the problem and the solution. Here is the context. The SSA and the CMS each have their stove pipes. They do not cross link. SS and Medicare are in trouble in the US. I have had to build a paradigm to solve the current problems. This week I doubled the salaries locally and I am adding two staff every two days at this point including Sundays. I will do a series of posts of scanned documents and notes and at the end post a copyrighted set of two pages that SSA and CMS have written to me that they will preserve as my property. A week ago at the request of the regional SSA I granted persmission to them to allow their weekend staffing at pharmacies to give me as a referral instead of the local 501 (C) (3) which owrks to solve the general SSA and CMS problems in lieu of those who "sell" plans from the private sector. Just let me post a series of attachments to paint the picture.
