He's an ex-hippie, so he'd fit into the whole Scooby Doo Mysteries scenario. :)

I love hippies too though. I think I am one reincarnated sometimes.

He grew pot in his basement until I said "do you really want to keep doing that when you're 70?" Oddly enough, he can be substantially more conservative than me, even for a former hippie.

That's hilarious and I bet when you asked him that he said yeah!

Well, when pot went legal in Oregon the prices were going to drop and I think he knew all that work would go for a lot less. His hippieness now is a paranoia about the government looking in on what he does on the internet.

Oh yeah guess it wouldn't have been worth it. Oh that's true. Our marine friend worked in intelligence and he keeps a piece of tape over his phone camera lenses. Y'all don't wanna know what all they get up to on people's devices

You sound like my friend. :) He won't get certain apps on his phone until he finds the best program to block the ability to look in. I just tell him "and you don't think the gubmint or other hackers aren't working on breaking that right now?" Also: "who the hell would care about what you're looking at?" I like to f**k with his head. ;)

became "unemployable" 9 years ago due to age and disabilities. Do I miss working. Once in a while, but then I regain my senses.

My friend's comments were charming at first, but now it just reminds me of my wage slavery. I'm not grumpy at him though, I just thought it would make a good meme. I've got a decade and a half yet. I'm not into rushing things.

It's funny. I make almost as much a month as I did while working. Expenses are higher due to meds I never needed before, but Medicare covers the brunt of it. Example: when I first got out of the hospital, I had to pay full price out of pocket for my Warfarin. today, I pay $3 a month, back then, $45 for the same Rx.

That's my friend. He makes more now than when he was working. Oregon's public employee retirement pension assumes 8% gains on investment which makes it quite generous - this also helps my father - but that won't last forever. And he also tucked money away in investment funds. He wasn't necessarily that smart that far in advance, I think he just had the hots for who he calls 'my money lady'. :) He's been a little lacking in funds lately, I think he loaned too much to his ex.

Medicare is a blessing for my parents. When I go pick up meds for them at the pharmacy I'm surprised at the pricing. Got 3 prescriptions for my mom the other day which came out to around $15. :)

Medicare takes my money out of my check before I even see it.

Got 3 things for my dad once that came to $6.04. Sometimes there's a bite, like $130 for mom's Eliquis, but mostly it's a blessing. It likely won't be the same blessing for me in 20 years.

Right now, Social Security is forbidden to negotiate prices on meds. Neither is Medicaid. The Pharma companies don't want that, nor do the drug stores. EG: CVS has an OTC nicotine patch for $30. Same RX patch is $80+ dollars. Costs more to quit than to smoke.

Yeah, I'd like to ask Paul Ryan where the competition and market pricing is that could bring down prices and which the GOP says it's in thrall to. When there are laws not allowing you to get something for less there's a fundamental f**k-up in the system.

The trouble with debit cards is he would tend to forget his. :P But he's a good guy, and when he retired from the school district he had his public employees' pension (really good in Oregon) and a bunch of other investment accounts he had been saving in. Smart without even realizing he had been so until he retired.
