Hello to everyone. I am retired now and this retirement is not what I expected.
I have worked hard all my life and the condition of my body proves that.
I spent 4 1/2 years Air Force, Ten years Construction, 20 Years welding and 20 Years pipefitting.
I was much healthier when working, maybe I need to rejoin the workforce.
I made some money in the stock market between 2009 & 2016. When Trump was elected my
stock market account lost 50% of it's value.
I can't wait to see what happens next.

Welcome and your stock market account makes no sense. Either you or your broker are the worst investors ever.

Thank you as my IRA account increased by over 50% in the first 2 yrs of president Trump's term, and all of my investments are in very low risk items and if you know anything about the stock market you know these are the investment that increase at the lowest rate. So yeah it's obvious this person knows very little if anything about the market !!!!!!

For lack of a better word this person lied. Unless he had everything in junk bonds or penny stocks.

Welcome aboard. Firstly, I doubt you are 'The oldestguy'. If you can beat 86 next month then you win.
Your politics are your business but if you badmouth the president, don't expect me to read it.

In my opinion those who offer low-life, childish opinions should be ashamed and and not setting a very positive example for any kids they might be raising.

BTW, I began working in 1951 and retired in 1994. Makes 43 years on the payroll with no sick days or unexcused time off.

No sick days! Very impressive! In my 46 years of work (except for 2 months unemployed) I have had about five sick days. But you sure got me beat!

I hope to work about 8 more years. Retire at 70.

Heck, I gracefully amputated my right little finger at the first joint and didn't even miss any work for that either.
