    interesting observation… the company my daughter works for has decided to use a personality evaluation test when hiring…
    a person she knows, has worked with and is an outstanding professional failed the test and wasn’t hired – the people they are hiring are worthless and dangerous … my daughter suspects that they lie on the test… and the company’s reliance on the test is going to result in lawsuits, if they continue to use it

    I hate the damn personality tests.
    Hate them.
    I spent so much time lobbying for people who failed them and firing people who nailed them.

    “Pastors Don’t Do It For The Money, But Having Enough to Retire Would Be Nice ”

    I never understood how there was a pressure to “opt out” of Social Security.
    I’m curious as to how that ever became a thing.

    In CC, signing up for SSI indicated a lack of faith in the imminence of the Rapture…

    That’s sad & tragic!
    Back when we were Calvaryites my wife and I viewed our SocSec contributions as “if the Lord tarries Tax”. Now it’s borne out to having been reasonably prudent.

  9. Em says:

    I feel badly for those who were exploited in the Rapture craze… seems almost demonic, “fool me once etc.”
    Today, however, i “feel” the Church’s days ARE drawing to a close… dunno, though, do i? ?

  10. Randy Davis says:

    Some pastors were tempted to drop out of SS because pastors pay self employment tax, not half but all. The thing is in order to drop out, you had to state that it was against your religious beliefs. I never saw a reason to do that. Plus to drop out of SS was to also drop out of Medicare. And since most pastors were like me, they are never paid well and have very little put back for retirement. Thus not having Medicare would be doubly stupid.

    I worked in Med Surg for 42 years. Social Security and Medicare have been an awesome blessing.

  12. My boss’s friend burned through like $500k until Medicare/Medi-Cal kicked in. It made him think, “why save for retirement?” My mother’s “estate” consists of her SS income. She lost her 5 acres, paid off, of retirement, but SS, Medicare, and Medi-Cal kicked in. She just had to have no assets.

    Not any of us can take it with us. I’m rethinking my own retirement plan, a trust for my kids.
