    You do not speak as someone who has wealth.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    I suspect you have more wealth than I do. But you speak as someone accustomed to wealth. Most people here do not.

    MR V I rescind the words I said to you, the ones where I said I believe you are a good person. Perhaps your basic nature is not goodness. Perhaps I was wrong.

    I don’t know. I get your point but I had less stress in my life when I had nothing. When we got married and moved into the ghetto, we bought the cheapest everything. We were proud to just have something/ anything. Now, she stresses over all the selections. Then, it was easier — cheapest.

    Those are choices. You (and I) never have to choose between one necessity and another.

    Besides, distance allows nostalgia.
