I do not feel sorry for them.

I feel sorry for anyone facing destitution in their old age, whether public or private employee, white or black, liberal or conservative. What are they going to do? If they lose their pensions how are they going to live? Will they go on public assistance? How will they, at their age, obtain jobs which are scarce for young people? Do we just let them die? They are human beings and fellow Americans whether we like it or not.

Once Pensions are allowed to disappear, with nobody going to prison, fogetaboutit. The next step will be bank accounts and other savings.......well it really doesn’t matter though does it? If the damn government can make you buy superexpensive junk, and then fine you whatever amount they want if you don’t......that is the bottom of the barrel...the last straw......TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION .....AND IN AMERICA THAT MEANS ....THE TERRIBLE MOST HORRIBLE .....WAR.....WELL EXCEPT FOR.......War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.John Stuart Mill
English economist & philosopher (1806 - 1873)

Exactly.

While not wanting to pay for them is a legitimate complaint, the rabid hate is about as far from principled conservatism as one can get.

My inspiration to try to find good conservative free market ways to help actually echoed from Detroit.

Ronald Reagan 1980 Republican National Convention Acceptance Address delivered 17 July 1980, Detroit, MI

The American people -- The American people the most generous on earth, who created the highest standard of living, are not going to accept the notion that we can only make a better world for others by moving backward ourselves. And those who believe we can have no business leading this nation.

I will not stand by and watch this great country destroy itself under mediocre leadership that drifts from one crisis to the next, eroding our national will and purpose. We have come together here because the American people deserve better from those to whom they entrust our nation's highest offices, and we stand united -- we stand united in our resolve to do something about it.
