You guy's are up on current events and are ON POINT with issues........
With that said, what does the future hold for "us" as far as quality of life issues? I got kids that might need to go to college in 10 years....

If we can hold off the socialist march by most dems and some pubs, that the people seem to want anyway, I will remain optimistic. We are so wealthy as a country that we can and have absorbed much of it already. But that will change as spending continues to increase exponentially in the future (i.e. SS, medicare, etc.)

still a safe bet given that even if the land is procured it would be at a reasonable (doubled) value... Hard to beat that with your 401k.

I don't think anything dramatic will happen in ten years. Now when your kids kids are going to college all bets are off. Probably won't be able to hunt b/c guns are taken away. Can't drink b/c MADD has started 2nd prohibition, won't have gas powered cars anyway b/c we'll be riding around in self controlled little hydrogen buggies. Will have to eat from the gov't approved menu. Christian Churches will be outlawed, can only meet in privacy of own home so as not to offend nonbelievers. I say all this w/ my tongue firmly planted in my cheek, I think. I'm sure others can come up with better ones.

This won't be much of a surprise but I am not optimistic about the future. The US has been on top for a while now and the son don't shine on one dog's backside all the time.

Our government is becoming increasingly corrupt. Higher education is increasing in costs at a rate that is more than double inflation over the last decade and there is no let up in sight. To top it off the quality of the education is going down. I agree with the comment about land (where your own land may not be yours anymore) and know of two law suits locally where people are trying to either get back control of their own land or get the government to pay a fair and reasonable market rate.

I was reading a financial paper the other day that was noting that Americans are leaving the USA in record numbers and moving to Central and South America. While immigration has always been the highest form of flattery a country can have we seem to be at the edge of a shift. I am amazed at how many Mexicans do return home every year choosing to work here and live there.

Just some rambling thoughts with no political agenda, but does anybody know where I can get a real estate book for south of the border. At this point in winter I am ready to consider a move south.

I heard recently that many small villages in Mexico had ceased to exist because all the young men were working in the US then sending for their families...

At least the kids they pop out here will be legal.

I was thinking more like the nonbelievers were in trouble. You haven't noticed the increasing numbers of evangelical types (Jesus Freaks)? Wal-Martesque community churches sprouting up on every corner. If I go anywhere and say I was lucky about something someone crams the "no, you were blessed" **** down my throat.

As for MADD, they can blow me. I like to drink. Drinking is fun, a buzz feels great. If I drink to much, my wife drives. Dumb asses who drive drunk deserve punishment. People who think drinking is 'bad' are pussies.

Well, if booze is outlawed, I'll just have to start smoking pot. It's easier to hide in your pocket!

Don't get upset, it was a joke.


Besides it's much easier to pursue your religion.....

If you want my humble opinion on the subject, here it is.

Your kid's quality of life will depend on how adaptable they are. The rich will get richer, the poor will get poorer, and those who are most able to deal with both classes equally will be well prepared to succeed.

If you are well off and well educated, put them in public school and supplement their education at home. If you are not so well off or do not consider yourself well educated, do your best to get them into private school (religious or otherwise) on a scholarship. Exposure to all levels of society will help them to find their way through the world in adult life.

Instill in them that they are entitled to nothing in this world and that no job is too menial. Success is won through work, wisdom, and luck (not always in that order).

There will always be an economy regardless of your nationality, race, or language. The key is finding a niche. They need to learn to be GOOD at something or a couple of things. They don't need to do those things for ever but they will find that being really GOOD at something will give them the confidence to try other things.

I hope that helped.

This is one of my favorite sites. Lots of useful information.

Great; but figure on going way south, since it's illegal for an American to buy property in Mexico.
