    In slightly late, but better than never right? In 20 years I will be 43. Hopefully this site is still around and I am still able to collect, shoot and carry! Time will tell.

    I see in late night negotiating the senate republicans went along with a $1 in spending cuts for every $43 increase in taxes.
    Right now I'm not feeling very confident that our republic will survive this presidency.

    I'm 49 as of a couple days ago so I should be around at 69. My daughter is a senior in high school and is deciding which college to attend. My wife survived sudden cardiac death in late January so we are fortunate for that. I recently changed jobs after an 11.5 year stint at a big corporation and it has been a good thing.

    I pray that our country is not lost in the next 20 years. There are so many people that only want hand-outs from the government and too many in government that want hand out. I fear for our country because the conservatives are doing such a poor job, won't work as a team and are only in it for themselves. I'm concerned about what has been happening all around us in this country.

    That is a great idea.

    I am 29 right now, in April the big 30 is coming up. So in 20 years I will be 50 - officially old :supergrin:.

    Still thinking about applying for a green card. I am not an unrealistic US fanboy, but I would love to live in the US.
    Next to work I am studying for a bachelors degree in business administration and business psychology right now. Its really hard, but seems like it works.

    Would be happy to see this thread again in 20 years, living happily, not beeing broke and looking forward for another at least 20 years.
    I am also looking forward to have my whole family and friends still going well in 20 years and not having lost someone.

    Some predictions for the future:

    In 20 years an average meal at an average restaurant will cost 30€ without drinks.
    Gas will be 4€/litre.
    There still wont be flying cars and Hoverboards.
    Ice bears and most big sharks will be extinct.
    The US will have a female president and same sex marriage in all states.
    Big dangerous ghettos now have walls around them and military personell guarding them.
    There was a war between China and Japan.
    North and South Korea will be mostly united.
    We will send people to the Mars soon.
    Still no alien invasion.
    Big comeback of nuclear power plants.
    Gold will be 5k$.
    Cellphones will have 3d displays, Tvs will be mostly 3d only, most of them are gone now, people use laser beamer instead.
    We will wear the same stuff as in the 80s.
    Metallica is doing their last tour.
    Rolling Stones too.
    Electric cars still suck mostly.
    The next crusade has begone.
    lawman is an old fart.

    I'm only 49, but with my medical issues I hope I'm
    still alive in 20 years.

    I'll post on here every now and again though. Good thread idea.

    Thanks man, It is what it is, I'm not going to whine
    and get depressed.

    I still get around well, go shooting and normal every day activities.

    I'm lucky I'm strong minded and make the most of things.

    The gun hobby definitly helps, you need something enjoyable to do.

    Very good mindset. I am not sure how I would handle that.

    Tomorrow will be 237 years from July 4, 1776.
    It’s always been a bumpy ride.
    Happy Birthday to the United States of America.
