I’ll be the first to admit it.
I’m full of shenanigans. I try to keep these daily emails fun and entertaining but it’s easy to get carried away with the jokes.
And some things just aren’t funny.
Today on Fakebook, someone posted a picture of a homeless man laying on the sidewalk. He was covered in snow and ice because a snow plow just plowed around him.
Leaving him to freeze to death.
A couple of people chimed in to make fun of him.
There is no reverence for human life anymore.
Especially from liberals.
But also from conservatives.
I suppose this is (part of) the reason why I have such an unruly attitude toward a lot of folks.
So many people out there would just as soon step on you than help you to your feet.
Now, I’m sure you won’t end up like that homeless guy.
But a lot of it depends on you. I ramble a lot about saving money. And a lot of people kind of follow my advice while a great many more ignore me… sorta treat me like their crazy uncle who sits in the corner at family holiday get togethers drinking a little too much eggnog.
All the terrible things that happen to people. No one ever believes it will happen to them.
Until it does.
And it can happen to you when you’re too old to really do anything about it.
This is why I bug and bug and bug you every day to start saving money and to buy life insurance. To create a real money management plan. To provide for your old age.
Have you done it yet? If so, here’s a pat on the back. You’re one of the few, the proud.
If you haven’t, well, how long can you afford to wait?
I’m not asking a rhetorical question here. I wanna know. How long can you afford to wait?
Because while savings and insurance doesn’t solve every problem, it sure as hell keeps you from freezing to death on the street.
Stay warm, my friend.
