Sounds like you've thoroughly thought through the best way to live off of others.

Good job!!


Actually we're all "living off of others".

The business man who needs roads to get his product to the consumer, or qualified employees who were educated in the public schools and colleges is "living off" the taxpayers who funded the roads and built the schools.

Military members and retirees are "living off" the taxpayers who've funded a military/industrial complex that's more expensive than the next 7 highest spending countries, combined!

If you're over 65 and on Medicare, your FICA contributions over the years cover only a fraction of the $14,000 per year spent on the average beneficiary.

In the case of Obamacare, the internet (invented by Gov't funded DARPA) has provided middle-class people with enough information to do the kind of tax planning once reserved for the robber barons and hedge fund operators.

I'm glad I'm finally getting a seat the gravy train. <LOL>
