      It's the #1 sign of "aging out" musicians--they'd rather talk politics and 401Ks than music.

          Yea I love it, but it really does mirror what's happened.



          I'm a boomer, and we ruled the club scene when I was younger. There were so many of us that I was regularly gigging 6 nights a week and making more money at it than my roomates who were doing day jobs. I really thought I had it made throughout my life. This was never going to end, right? We were this huge bulge in the population and some of us would always be going out, even if a few dropped out of the scene.



          Wrong. Here is is NYE and I don't know anyone my age who is doing anything other than spending it at home, or at small parties with friends that will end well before midnight (out here those over 50 usually celebrate the new year with what's called "East Coast New Year's Eve" at 9pm).



          So my gig this year is as a DJ in a club that will be filled with people the age of my kids.



          And that's it in a nutshell. As people age out they don't go out.

            I live and work in a gulf coast town that gets a ton of retired seniors starting after christmas. Trust me , they party their brains out. While the party might end at midnight tonight, odds are they will be drinking again before noon tomorrow. You cant drink all day unless you start first thing in the morning. If its people who retire and stay in the home town. Yea they are pretty sedate, but most of them were pretty sedate when they were young too or are so disabled from smoking, drinking and extra weight that they cant move.

              Ahhh...yeah. That's it. Don't read any newspapers because those are all just the liberal-biased, Obama-loving, America-hating, lamestream media anyway. Instead, get all your financial advice from Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck. GREAT plan there....



              And yes, Tim. Your political prognostication record is running right around 0% in the few years I've known you on this board. How many times are you going to get stuff wrong before you'll start to figure out you need better sources? Or are you just going to go the stopped-clock route and figure you'll get something right eventually and that will make all the wrong calls worth it?

                I am pretty happy with how I have met my financial goals.

                    Its not crazy to understand that there is a major problem of borrowing 46 cents out of every dollar we spend with the adm teamed up with a fed chairman that lets them do it at pretty well a zero percent interst rate. We need to get spending under control and take the recession we have earned though out of control goverment.

                      There's an advantage to being the economic top dog in the world and getting to print our own money. Yeah, a good deal of the debt will eventually be eaten up by inflation due to all the money printing, but from the economic standpoint of the individual, how is that any more painful or dangerous than a recession? And it has the advantage of being able to spread it out over the next few decades rather than taking the hit all at once.



                      Take a trip to Europe and ask some of those countries over there how well "austerity" is working out for them.



                      I've been hearing the cries of "the debt will destroy us!" since I was a little kid. None of that has ever really panned out, has it? Dick Cheney told us all that "deficits don't matter" around about 2002 when the government was in the mood to run up the credit card to pay for some wars. Were you as apoplectic about all the debt back then? Or did it not bother you because it was the guys YOU like running it up at the time?



                      Some quick tips to live your life by:



                      1) take care of yourself as best you can. Nobody else is going to do it for you. Not Barack Obama. Not Mitt Romney.



                      2) it's fun and entertaining to pick a team and play political football, but it isn't going really matter which party is in power because, if for no other reason, you can't do anything about it anyway. I can't think of any bigger waste of time than trying to live my life based on who the current or next president is. I need to focus on the things I CAN control.



                      3) don't let that **************** run your life. Nobody likes crazy political guy with a yard full of signs and his car covered in stickers. Doesn't matter which team you're rooting far. People will think you're a nut. They're laughing AT you, not WITH you. The truth is in the middle, not at the extremes. That's why we have a two-party system. If one side was always right and the other always wrong, they'd have obliterated the other side long ago.

                        The problem is that we are in un charted waters with the idea that you can inflate your way out of this. the difference between now and the last time we did this was that we were a creditor nation then. Today we are broke deep in debt, and losing market share. So basically you are headed toward one world goverment, or a default with a bank holiday or both. Its going to take a depression to fix it. The bubble is just getting bigger. How long can we play the game? who knows. If you happen to be a guy who is broke ,, nothing matters. If you have saved your money odds are its going to come at your expense.

                            I dont listen to talk radio. So where do you think the end game will be? Its obvious that we are going to keep going on expanding the national debt. do you think we will start bailing out europe by borrowing more? Whats the end game?
