"When you pay social security taxes, you are in no way making provision for your own retirement. You are paying the pensions of those who are already retired. Once you understand this, you see that whether you will get the benefits you are counting on when you retire depends on whether Congress will levy enough taxes, borrow enough, or print enough money...." ~ Allen Wallis
I am an insatiable reader of non-fiction, mainly military and American history and the 'sciences'. I am a lifetime student of native plant life and am an herbologist of two decades now. I 'collect' 'Native American' artifacts and weaponry. I enjoy gardening, trout fishing, travel, and several forms of crafting. I am a dedicated 'activist' hoping to preserve the environment and culture of this region I am a small part of.
