I am mad as heck at Weiner because not only did he betray and humiliate his wife, he put his job in jeopardy. There is a certain arrogance in some types of men that seem to say “I am above getting caught”. It is astounding to think that there a cerebral intelligence which co-habitats with colossal stupidity. We, as democrats, need his guts to stand up and state in no uncertain terms what the republican policies do and that is govern against the best interests of the average American. First, we lost Alan Grayson (which I’m sure in Florida, they are crying into their cereal over that one) and now we stand to lose Weiner, who is going to fill the vacuum?

I don’t even know how I would react, when I found out that life would go on forever. I think that initially, I would have a lot of stress. It’s hard enough keeping it all together when you have a finite time on this earth, what do you when life is going to go on and on indefinitely? How do you tell your family? Will they live forever also? What do you do if it’s only you? If it is only you, then that means that you will experience a lot of loss. That would be so hard.
Maybe, this news would be more welcome, if I didn’t have so many things to worry about. If my husband was settled down in a new position and my children had some idea of what they wanted to do with their lives and if they showed a tad more ambition and work ethic, it would be nice, but it will come eventually. My son and daughter will do fine, I just worry. It is unsettling when you are not sure if your husband will find something new and the economy is trailing along, limp and listless. Stressful has been the operative word in my life for a while now and if I had to live an eternity, I don’t know how comforting it would be to know that at one time or another, stress will rear its ugly head when you least expect it.
So, if I were to live forever, things wouldn’t change, it would still be, take each day one at a time, like foot steps, you take one step at a time.
That’s the best I can do, because the way my husband and I have planned for our retirement is the way I would plan for eternity, except I would need a few more whole life policies and a few more jobs.
