We saw Eagles of Death Metal here in DC weeks ago. I can't wrap my head around any of this. That any of the band got out is great, but just. Awful. Anyways, from the Eagles of Death Metal Facebook page:
I had retirement savings. Then I didn't. Life happens, even with the best planning and strategies. It's all fine to talk about how you're going to live in the future, but you also have to live in the now. Unemployment, among other things, will ruin one's plans. Particularly long periods of unemployment, especially when you're over 35. It is what it is.
I'm almost five years in to starting over. I put 6% of my salary into a 401K with employer matching up to 3%. I make a meager savings contribution per pay. It's not enough to sustain me when I'm 65. On the other hand, I need to get to 65 so...
I'll need to be more aggressive in my planning but not just yet.
I'm a little confused on why the gay community needs to come up with alternatives to get the their legal access to services that are the job of the elected official their tax dollars pay for. Should their municipality decide to not pick up their gay trash or the postman not deliver their gay mail, are they required to solve those problems too?
