What is a Fuzzball?

  • One question I hear more than any other is What's a Fuzzball??" Allow me to explain:

    A Fuzzball is a 30-year-old fallen debutante who lives in Houston, TX with a bossy dog and an even bossier parrot who she SWEARS is the reincarnation of Napoleon Bonaparte.

    A Fuzzball prefers animals to most people, because people can really suck sometimes.

    A Fuzzball loves music, ALL music ALL of the time. If she's not listening to it, then she's singing it.

    A Fuzzball has a mad love for all things British, especially their actors.

    A Fuzzball is blissfully happy in a bookstore, preferably one with good music playing in the background. If you look under a Fuzzball's bed you'll usually find an entire library of books that she has dropped there after falling asleep reading.

    Fuzzballs are usually incurable romantics, ridiculously optimistic, and bent on making the world a happier place.

    Your typical Fuzzball will probably have a completely bizarre sense of humor. Just go with it, it will take you to funny places.

    You should also be aware that Fuzzballs are giant nerds. Seriously. Science fiction, computers, the whole shebang.

    Fuzzballs are also budding photographers. They love looking at the world through a lens and finding new ways to be creative.

    Oh...and you can also look for a Fuzzball in one of the best movies ever made. ;)

I vote for which ever gives me money when I retire.


An honest answer from an honest man. Thank you, my friend. :)

The transition costs will far outweight the eventual benefits IMO. Doesn't really matter to me at my age, as I will get my pitiful amount when I retire. However,what people forget is that social security was meant to be an insurance program, NOT an investment program. It was to assure that those people without the means to invest had SOMETHING for their retirement years. And it's not like YOU get to pick the "private" accounts to put your money in (no Krispy Kreme,OK, bad example, but no Microsoft/IBM either). Those accounts will be decided for you by, who else, your U.S. Government! So ask yourself who these accounts will really benefit, the investor, or the plan manager? If social security is really "bankrupt" (and yes there are really WMDs and a tooth fairy,too!), then one simple solution is to have those earning over the threshold ($87/89K, whatever it is) pay into the system, or to at least raise the threshold. Why do those folks earning those amounts get off scott-free? Yes, there are fewer people paying into the system than years ago, so adjustments will need to be made, but what are the "right" adjustments? Higher payroll taxes would be one, raising the threshold the other. But, private accounts? Not a good deal IMO. I think you will see payroll taxes raised eventually EVEN if you get private accounts for you "youngsters." Do your research, and write your congressional representative (if you think it matters).
