"No need to worry the government will take our guns and then the young will kill all the old folks."
Soylent Green is Old People!
Didn’t these same people pay into SS for the last 40 years? What’s the problem? SS is a Ponzi scheme scam and it might well sink us.
Obamacare has a solution for this problem
I get by on less than that.
I could reduce that further if the local shakedown/protection racket would reduce the property taxes.
I is old people, enjoy me with milk.
Honey, I’m pregnant!
we don't have nearly enough saved...we've had two weddings and a house payment and two colleges to help pay for...
I want my Ss...I'll work some piddly job for the extra money....guess I'll be forced to.
I’d be happy to get that much SS, mine is around half
Looks like most of these problems would disappear if we could re-educate people that “retirement” is an old fashioned concept, like the Constitution or “Rule of Law”. Work ‘till you die. It’s Patriotic! Like paying taxes!
I just want to point out that you can die within 8 hours in Death Valley, apparently without suffering to much. You won’t really even notice the heat, because there is often a nice breeze blowing through there.
That was exactly the point, by the way. From Henry George’s Single Tax to the income tax to counterfeiting (the Fed) to the death tax, gubmint has, especially since the progressive era, deliberately attempted to make it impossible for you to support yourself. Nevermind their reasons, which I never understand anyway. They don’t like “unearned income,” they wanna head off plutocrats from stealing democracy, poverty in the midst of plenty is morally anathematic, we gotta spread the wealth around, blah, blah, blah. Mostly it’s because they live to spend money, and you can only find it where it is.
The result is very little culture and sheeplike people. But, hey, at least we have McDonalds and gang wars.
Suckling on the government teat is not a liberal vs conservative issue. There are plenty of conservatives, many on this forum, that rail against it on one hand and enjoy the fruits of it on the other.
I'm pretending that there isn't any safety net, and that I'm on my own until Jesus takes me to his bosom.
What is so surprising about this data. The country celebrates debt and interest payments and the baby boom has no concept of hard times.
Get yourself out of debt, stop paying interest and watch your savings grow quickly.
Spend tomorrows money today and you will have no money tomorrow.
the young will kill all the old folks.. well yes that too when video games get boring.
Not to worry..
The 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, spoiled brats and their ideological issue (the Establishment) can be gruff but honest when it comes to the old and useless eaters. The progressives' future rests on finding the right solution.
President Obama: At that age just a pill might be better than expensive cures.
Former Senate Majority Leader Democrat Tom Daschle has praised Europeans for being more willing to accept "hopeless diagnoses" and "forgo experimental treatments," and he chastises Americans for expecting too much from the health-care system.
Former Governor of Colorado Democrat Richard Lamm: Seriously ill old people have a duty to die and get out of the way.
and then there's the Democrats' Pelosi..
Palliative End of Life Optimum Serenity Initiative (PELOSI).
“Obamacare has a solution for this problem.”
Obamacare IS a solution for this problem.
But there is certainly a point of diminishing returns for health care. Where that point will be drawn AND BY WHOM(!), I have no idea.
as long as Obamacare covers Viagra, they’ll be happy...
Didn’t these people ignore this for the last 40 years.....? Fruits of the 60’s generation and chickens coming home to roost? What should have been saved was instead used to grow a large parasitic population.
