I appreciate your compliment and sentiments, but I am just trying to resist the decades-long trend to spend more that what is generated. I can just see most of those of my generation living in barracks at abandoned military installations when they are old, due to the crash of the Social Security ponzi scheme, and due to their individual lack of foresight and discipline.
Many of you who read these posts are in your teens and early twenties. I assure you that your forties and fifties are just around the corner, and paying college tuition for YOUR children, rather than your home mortgages, will be your major "retirement plan ruiner", so take my advice and resist some of the "extras" that pitchmen in our society offer up. Most of those types of extra things do not offer genuine satifaction, anyway.
