I think you can even do a little extra at your age as catch up.

Young people on here, take note. 60 might seem way far away, but you gotta start saving now if you’re ever going to retire. This would be a much different conversation if coonman had saved 15 percent of his income in a 401k for the last 30 years. He would be a millionaire. He wouldn’t have to worry about his truck breaking down, cause he could just go pay cash for a brand new one. He could never work another day in his life if he felt like it.

Coonman, I’m not trying to be down on you. I just want the young folks here to understand that THEY control their future and retirement, not the government or social security.

Mr. Bob,

Any chance you are not accounting for the fact that CM may be "hard scrabble" and knows how to grind out an existence?

Well if he wants to struggle for the rest of his life then I guess he can retire whenever he wants.

The alphabets may only have an idea of what your arsenal contains but they are aware you have one, unless you have never bought a firearm on the insta check program, then maybe you are not on the firearm owner list.

I am curious as to when the alphabets got the authority to interpret law, who gave it to them, and will those interpretations hold up in court.

You must have a short memory . Last year around this time there was a lengthy exchange that several on here proclaimed that such a "zone" didn't exist.

Actually there are are 7 states that allow early voting to change their votes . PA is one of them and after the last debate there was a huge spike in searches on how to charge your vote.

No such thing as a perfect candidate. There's something we don't like about any of them. You just have to decide if the good the candidate might do is enough to accept the bad they might do. There's things I don't like about Trump, and things I don't like about Libertarians and Republicans in general. For me, the good things President Trump has done are good enough to look past his flaws and the things he does with which I disapprove.

One of my favorite hymns, taken from a Psalm, says.

Hallelujah, praise Jehovah,
O my soul, Jehovah praise;
I will sing the glorious praises
Of my God through all my days.
Put no confidence in princes,
Nor for help on man depend;

He shall die, to dust returning,
And his purposes shall end.

Happy is the man that chooses
Israel's God to be his aid;
He is blessed whose hope of blessing
On the Lord his God is stayed.

Heaven and earth the Lord created,
Seas and all that they contain;
He delivers from oppression,
Righteousness he will maintain.

Food he daily gives the hungry,
Sets the mourning prisoner free,
Raises those bowed down with anguish,
Makes the sightless eyes to see.
Well Jehovah loves the righteous,
And the stranger he befriends,
Helps the fatherless and widow,
Judgment on the wicked sends.

Hallelujah, praise Jehovah,
O my soul, Jehovah praise;
I will sing the glorious praises
Of my God through all my days.
Over all God reigns for ever,
Through all ages he is king;
Unto him, thy God, O Zion,
Joyful hallelujahs sing.

No matter who wins the election for President of US - have confidence knowing that King Jesus is on His throne. The heart of the kings of this world are like water in His hands and He directs them wherever He wants them to go.

When the ground gets frozen hard,you won't pull them and an auger won't work either.It will only spin on top of the ground.In that country,I would use rebar stakes and vice grips to twist them out.I use a pry bar when near the truck.I can pull them all winter long.We have already had -5 degree temps here.Earth anchors,I wait till spring.I mark them with a length of orange bailing twine.It holds up well and isn't conspicuous.(more of a rust color,actually)

I cant find out how long it takes to fully charge on household current, battery life expectancy, number of batteries or battery cost. AMP hours to fully charge so cost can be calculated

Dont know him, but I call BS. He doesn't strike me as someone with a lot of experience. I think he's just trying to get "views" to his videos.

I'll occasionally get actual letters from people wanting to hunt. I always respond, with a letter, and it's usually a positive response.
