x1000 A couple of years ago, DH and I were both complaining that we spent at least two hours a day not working, while still meeting targets and earning bonuses. At our next annual reviews, we told our managers we wanted control over our hours and to just be responsible for work product. Now I usually work 730-230, and DH usually works 10-5 or maybe 12-7. Life is much, much better. [ Reply | More ]

OP. I waste so much time not working. I had gotten into the habit of working from home and going into the office on days where I had meetings. Today I have been told that I can no longer work from home 2 days in a row. [ Reply | More ]

Why is this a question? If you sincerely think you could get at least one consulting gig/month, you'd be matching your current full month salary and anything else is gravy? Of course you take it. What are the "jobs", though - you put it in quotes and it sounds like an escort service. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Flame away, but I think America is going into gradual decline as it struggles to manage rising numbers of poors and illegals. So many of the complaints of a "broken" education system derive from the fact that the system is now tasked with educating those who are poorly-educable to begin with. It's like the old joke about why Finnish schools are so successful: First, start with a classroom full of Finnish kids... 30 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

also a problem is an aging population, elderly living extra long lives with not nearly enough savings and no family willing to take them in. [ Reply | More ]

Yes, it's really expensive to care for an 80 year old with dimentia who has no money and may live another 15 years. Divorce is so common and kids move across the country. [ Reply | More ]

the ones to blame for USA horribly backwards Public Policy aren't the poor nor illegals (they don't vote). the problem is the me, me and me English mentality. if USA had more Nordic influence, its Public Policy would be much better than it is. [ Reply | More ]

There's only so much "public policy" can do. If you want Nordic outcomes, you need a Nordic population. If your population is increasingly full of lower-income Guatemalan laborers, you're not going to GET Nordic outcomes, and the reasons for that should be obvious. Demography to a large extent is destiny. This has been known for thousands of years, but somehow we lost that kind of common sense within the past 50. [ Reply | More ]

it's not being white that's a problem, in fact, given that minorities are much more pro-young and pro-family than the English are, public policy will improve when the % of English culture shrinks. it's having english background instead of say Nordic that's the problem. everybody knows that UK is the worst place to be a kid because of horrible public policy and hierarchical society. the Nordics as wise instead.
