DON’s WORLD – Who Are We FLORIDIANS?

DON’s World – 200710 – WHO ARE WE in FLORIDA

Florida is an interesting State and as everyone knows it is a favorite spot for retired people to move to and enjoy the latter years of their lives. Of course we also have an image of being a state that is nothing but Beaches, Swimming Pools and Tiki Bars.

One reality that many people, not familiar with, this semi-tropical state is the fact that over 25% of the state’s population is Hispanic speaking according to the most recent Census. I’ve been living here for over ten years now myself and even I can see a slow change in the cultural lifestyle as these hard working people grow and participate in our government as American citizens.

Here is a link to my article that discusses the latest census data and what I have personally observed of how our nation has changed many things to aid all of the ethnic groups who are migrating here.

DON’s World – 200702 – TANSTAAFL

Somehow the racial injustice we all witnessed when the policemen in Minneapolis slowly took the breath away from a Black man named George Floyd sparked has sparked a worldwide reaction. But after several weeks the, at first, peaceful days of protest quickly turned into weeks of rioting and rampant destruction of public property.

Here is a link to my article that discusses how thee riots are actually harming the cause of the Blacks. my thought is that once a point has been made to the existing government, the next step should be negotiations for improvements, and not continual day-after-day destruction and chaos.Chaos breeds over-reaction, at some point, and not understanding and growth.

I’m Mad! Everybody deserves more Money but ME!

Old_Man_and_Dog

It’s just not right, I tell you!

This is my annual Rant at the world about how our nations politicians treat their Seniors, Retirees, Baby Boomers and others who are living on a fixed income.

Just tell me why:

  • Doctors deserve more for their visits every year,
  • Supermarkets deserve more money for their basic foods like bread, milk, etc.
  • Automakers deserve more money for their new cars,
  • McDonald’s workers and others deserve more money for slapping hamburgers on a grill.
  • Drug manufacturers deserve more money for their pills, even the generic ones.
  • And, the list goes on.

AMERICAN GULLIBLE an article on how we are allowing the government to waste our Social Security

AMERICAN GULLIBLE

Here is a great and thoughtful article written by fellow Hubber Wayne Brown.
I think every one of us that has concerns about our federal representatives and what they are doing with the budget and debt should read this one.

I recommend it highly.

—————————–

ME? and Retirement.

OK, ME!
I actually retired several years ago, and have been living on a couple of small pensions and significantly reduced SS payments.
The reasons for my early retirement are varied, and seemed appropriate at the time.
So I have no real reasons to second guess myself.

And that is what I recommend to you.
When you Retire, of course you should adjust your plans as your life and financial circumstances change.
But don’t cry over spilt milk.   Whatever happened that changed for you, you need to react to, but just move on, and adjust and change as necessary, so you can live your retired life the way you want.

Look at your finances, CLOSELY!
Do your research, especially on the web.
I found so many great sites with good basic information for retirees and potential retirees, that after about six months of putting myself through my own personal training program, I was able to make sound retirement decisions based on my own needs.

I recommend that you do the same.
Oh, by the way, remember that any person or company that claims to be an expert in retirement planning?
Well they all have a vested interest in “helping” you invest/spend your money, or so it ended up for me.
I recommend that you listen to them,but do it with a tight grip on your money.
And, no matter how hard a sell job they are throwing at you, please, be smart a d walk away without signing anything.
Here is my suggestion:
TALK to MANY,  SIGN NOTHING, WALK AWAY, ….. and TAKE he TIME to THINK.
If they are professional, then they will understand,
If they keep pushing you? RUN!
Well, that’s it for the day!
Have a Good One!
