    store brands may be just as good, but salt is not just as good as toothpaste, it doesn't have fluoride and that makes a difference in tooth decay. Of course frankly I wouldn't TRUST counterfeit...

    +1 and then while we call any random killer "mentally ill" we pretend we aren't stigmatizing mental illness. Oh yes we are. Btw I don't have a mental illness diagnosis, but it's a civil rights...

    It's more than two, probably 6-10 every 2 years they push it but I procrastinate it so it's usually more like every 3 years. And they always try to sell me even more xrays, as if I absolutely need...

    foreign travel all the time is a kind of very well into the middle class marker - as are super shiny almost new cars! I find those people kind of silly, but if I'm hanging there I'm making really...

    it could be because deficits ultimately don't matter that much, and they know it, but there is political value in posturing. And it could be that the pensions, the brokers, the investors, the...

    I'm sure many people take SS at 62 because they can't find work (and many have been looking for a few years prior). Not so many people out there that want to hire seniors afterall. So even if there...
