Could not agree more.got a company pension, a military pension. social security and an ira.
sad thing is, i doubt that my grand kids will ever be able to retire...
freekin' country is broke. jobs being outsourced. taxes gooing up to pay the debt. more and more retired old farts (like me) less and less productive workers.
no money to pay law enforcement (they gotta pay the retired guys). violence/food prices going up.
think your pention (entitlement) is bullet proof? think again.
sthe only people with bullet proof pentions are in congress, pardners.
don't see anything on the horizon that's likely to turn this around
i'm afraid what's gonna happen is a major scio/political adjustment like a big war.
i hope it's not with china because they probably won't lend us the money to go to war with them.
did i mention that the state of health car for the unwashed masses is unlikely to improve? what about neculear insecurity?
i don;t see any ideas in congress other than
"we need to create jobs and be competitive in the world market".
what are we gonna build that the world wants to buy and let the workers retire at 55 or even 65?
do the math. i've been trying hard to be optomistic. might work if i go back to drinking.
