Money Or Happiness?


#81

Red envelope should be voluntary. A voluntary red envelope would be more valuable.

Voluntary charitable donation is noble, paying tax is not.

Free will is noble and mandate is not


#82

Of course, the goal is to exact such happiness and joy from both sets of parents (double dipping is allowed here) that they almost feel embarrassed by how small their “little” red envelope is relative to how much you have given them, in theory. You “have to” accept their gift graciously or they will feel insulted and we certainly don’t want them to feel that way, right?

a Maserati is a girls car. Too bad they are so poorly made…all hat and no cattle…


#84

Can they sue you later if the kids divorce?


#85

Come on @Terri. It is like a lead on a home. You check it out, you kick the tires STILL… No Refunds!!!


#86

I see, so you’re not willing to put your money where you mouth is eh?


#87

You do realize that the referral may be fine (hence red envelope earned) but the two individuals could easily screw it up on their own for a bunch of reasons. How can I be responsible for everything that happens in the world between two people after the introduction that gets past first base? Of course, not. So if a recruiter lands you a job and later you get fired should the recruiter be sued? So if you land an apartment through a referral and you get evicted the referrer should be sued? Nonsense!!!:grin:

Classic of the idiot who never had a buck in his pockets. The money is spent like a drunk sailors does.

Then, no care for what any legal problem can bring to his wealth. Duh!

The opiod epidemic among other reasons is actually causing a fall in the life expectancy of American males (especially white American males without steady work).

It’s also been cited as a reason we aren’t at higher labor force participation.


#93

Will legalized marijuana further reduce Ameicans life expectancy? Millenials may have a huge health problem due to widespread drug use. Those Millenials love the a life of high and make themselves a timed bomb for our healthcare spending

We are headed towards Aldous Huxleys Brave New World.
Rampant drug use, sex and a mindless populist…We got the idiot POTUS we deserve… And plenty of drugs to keep everyone numb.
Brave New World is a dystopian novel written in 1931 by English author Aldous Huxley, and published in 1932. Set in London in the year AD 2540 (632 A.F.—“After Ford”—in the book), the novel anticipates developments in reproductive technology, sleep-learning, psychological manipulation, and classical conditioning that are combined to make a profound change in society. Huxley followed this book with a reassessment in an essay, Brave New World Revisited (1958), and with Island (1962), his final novel.

Weed will not reduce life expectancy because any reduction will be offset by further advances in medicine.

Whoever is mumbling against “drugs” please revise your head. Medical marijuana is a threat to the pharma industry. It is not the usual marijuana, no, they extract the chemical components that make you talk like the guy in the white house.

Unless you haven’t watched TV, they show you ads where you can use certain pills, or injection and if you do so, you “may” end up with TB, cancer, etc. That is, you will end up with a worse situation than the headache you complained about.

Isn’t that precious?

My tax guy, long time suffering Chron’s disease cured himself by taking pills from marijuana. And he is a fervent supporter of medical marijuana for the rest of his life.

When you are really, really sick, unless you didn’t get a life insurance which will cover long term care (living benefits), money could mean happiness because you can travel and enjoy life for the last time of your life.

Without it, it is going to be a long and suffering journey to the other end of the tunnel.

Marijuana may actually be a much safer alternative to opiods. One potential (and feasible) treatment is to move people suffering from chronic pain off opiods to marijuana


#98

I am telling you! I keep seeing people just throwing nonsense without any investigation on their part. Medical marijuana is what the pharma industry is afraid of. It will take their easy earned money away.

I have seen videos of people getting cured immediately from the shakings of Parkinson disease. Many cures for many diseases from this plan. It is not you smoking a cigarette! Gee!

By the way, hemp is a plant that can be used for many purposes, from making plastic, materials for construction and so on. This is why some other states are getting big revenues from medicinal marijuana, because they are getting smart!

Most people use marijuana to get high. What percentage is for real medical use?

Once legalized, many people would take that it’s safe, legal, and use it a lot and often. It’s a statiscal issue, not a rhetoric one. Its long term health impact is unknown still
