As with the job i like it, i don't LOVE it...i don't hate getting out of bed every morning like i did at highschool...if i could do it all over again i'd be a chef..

anyway enough bout me, how bout you guys?
I am happy with my pay, but unhappy with what I get to keep for my family. I am fortunate enough to do what I enjoy in an industry that pays well.

Doing the math, though, there will come a time when I will be better off quitting my often 24/7 work to get out of the crosshairs of every organization that punishes "rich" people in the US and join the ranks of the takers.

I would be a whitewater raft guide/ nature guide if money were no object.

If money were no object I'd be a Wasabi farmer in Oregon, supplying the product to select few restaurants.

I will go on Social Security to take your wealth away
I need to quit teaching for minimum wages then take a number at the unemployment line so you rich folks will pay me to watch TV while waiting for my Escalade to be delivered to my door.

If only you had a hymen, you could pump out illegitimate kids (making your parents raise them, of course), and collect the welfare checks for them too. Might even get some child support, if you're a discriminating ho' who seeks playa's with mad bank.

Apparently you don't understand how Social Scurity and unemployment insurance work. Otherwise you would understand that neither have anything to do with what I am talking about.

Except, of course the proposed 5x increase in my SS taxes with no increase in what I receive when I am eligible.

You apparently did not understand why I brought them up. I want YOU to pay me while you work hard for a living. I want to be a parasite for a change.
In addition I want to keep you working until you drop because you will not be able afford your present lifestyle if you decide to bail on me. It's time for the teacher to use the system bro
