Life has become so troublesome

I finally get a few minutes to myself and I get all comfortable and watch the McLaughlin Group. But it wasn't on. That freaky looking blonde lady with funky outfits was on again pimping her tapes on Roth IRAs as they were doing pledge drive. I guess Channel 9 is now doing monthly pledge drives. It is making me insane. I worked in public broadcasting and we pre-empted regular programming twice a year. This is too much. Not once, not twice but three times in three months. Channel 9 has got to think twice.

I should put money back into my IRA. I been riding tight and fast the past few years and haven't been proper on that, but I don't work for a corporation either. It is not like I am going to be able to collect on my Social Security when I am an old man. It will be long broke or completely corrupted with no real benefits by the time I get ready to collect. All those old boomers are going to squeeze us as they age in so we will have nothing at all as all of our nation's resources go to cater to them. So long education and health care for children and young adults, instead we will have plenty of programs for older adults and healthcare for them. We could do both, but we live in a tough world and market economy. Everyman for himself. Yeah right.
