FGS Jens here you go again. You just never give up.
We are not the problem & I personally do not want to hear your theory ever again. Take your soapbox and stand on the street but leave us alone.
Most of us have done our best in raising a family. My children, grandchildren, now my older great-grandchildren know how careful I am with my money. If they do not take note of the fact that there have been no handouts in my life prior to retirement, then there is nothing more I can do to educate them. Largely they seem to be successful & to understand the hard work & saving idea.
So leave us in peace to enjoy what is left of our retirement. We are not children & you are not our teacher. Please do as Bryan requested earlier today !!!!!

huiatahi, I am certainly on your side with a great dislike of credit cards, I have never had one and never will because they increase the cost of goods, something we can do without. It is difficult, nay inpossible, to barter with a credit card, not so with cash.#1717432jensMemberMember since: May 3, 2006

“I (gabyone) am all right, Jack”
The others are not my responsibility, are they? Don’t bother me to think about it and comment on the sense or nonsense of your propositions and questions!
Well gabyone – if my questions get answered with evidence and not just debatable opinion and taste, we could have interesting conversations, but if the subject matter is really too boring and childish for you, why not just ignore it with a laugh instead of getting unfriendly about it ?
Are you really not concerned about the idea that printing money would solve any economic problem there is in a sustainable way ?#1717433gabyoneMemberMember since: November 13, 2008

Jens, How dare you suggest that I am a ” I’m all right Jack”. ???
I have given 27 + years to Volunteer work assisting the very people you simply rabbit on about, as “have nots” . I actually took unpaid time off my paid work to do that Jens, for many of those years, including years as a widow struggling to save for my retirement.
There is absolutely no point to any discussions with you.

So sorry people for lifting the lid off that can of worms! I should have known I had no chance of shutting him up. I should have known that even after 10 years he still hasn’t learned when enough is enough. So sorry!

Let us respect each other in the assumption that we all only try to do and believe in the best for all and ourselves, and instead of getting upset over different views on that, let us examine it all in calm impartiality.
Herewith full respect and appreciation of all the responsible and good works you have done in the traditional manner.
You – in principle the same as the wealthiest substantial contributors to charity and all our Social Democratic welfare governments – have helped to alleviate poverty for a long time – and feel good about having done the right thing – but has it really eliminated poverty ?
Matter of fact, have we not ample evidence already, that more guaranteed charity actually relaxes people into increasingly relying on it and thus encourage the spread of even more poverty to be alleviated ?
Please think about it and let us know whether that looks like truth or nonsense, and why ?
Perhaps we should ask the help of our apostle of truth halcyon to clarify that ?#1717439mommabear70MemberMember since: February 20, 2017

Oh dear how sad.
The usual suspects have plenty to fire when it suits, but as Clive Dunn often said “They don’t like it up ’em.”
Few other things come to mind: glasshouses, pots, kettles.
No need to be sorry jens, no one else is when they’re clearly in the wrong.#1717440dr-whoMemberMember since: April 12, 2017

Not your fault Brian.
You are not responsible for Jens’ compete disregard for the wishes of others.
I have to say that your ‘piss off’ comment was completely in line with my thinking and I presume, the thinking of the vast majority of people on here,
Jens has no regard for the feeling of the majority and is therefore no friend of democracy.#1717441BryanMemberMember since: October 28, 2006
