Set forth below is the text of a comment posted recently by one of the Greaney Goons to this site:
Based on your answer, I don’t think you understand what ‘powder’ is in this context Rob. Of course, you have always shown a deaf ear for analogies and comparisons, even (especially?) those you create yourself. So I’ll be so plain as to eliminate all confusion:
Rob, ‘powder’ here is money, plain and simple.
Not some subtle allusion to gunpowder (i.e. not a death threat) or baby powder or cocaine.
Money. Filthy Lucre. Hard cash. Wampum. Mean Green. Lettuce. Greenbacks.
You know; the stuff that unfortunately, is REQUIRED to support a wife and two children, and a house, car, taxes, and other trappings of modern life.
And I reiterate that I think you’ll be broke (‘Again’? Or is it ‘still’?) come 2016, unless you happen to have even more family members ready to kick off, in order to fund your shiftless ways for a few more years.
Care to explain why not, given your original nest egg, and your self admitted withdrawal rates? Because your [rapidly dwindling!] money ain’t been makin’ no money for quite some time, based on your own claims as to it’s allocation.
