    Hey, if they weren’t smart enough to have rich and influential parents get them a sweet job in politics and gold-plated retirement benefits, then they deserve whatever happens to them!

    So, what do you say about those folks who were smart, deferred various “pleasures” so that their retirement was secure and then have the guv decide to take their money away b/c they “have too much?” We’re heading for mediocrity more and more. We penalize people for being successful and reward those who don’t try.

    I paid into the SS system, and my employers paid into the system for well over 30 years, and I have just received 4 months Social Security. The right wingers want to steal my money, and I want to deport them to Somalia.

    I say the same thing you say about those folks who were smart, deferred various “pleasures” so that their retirement was secure, then lost their money and the value of their homes thanks to irresponsible bankers and financial “experts” treating their assets like a free gambling fund.

    If people would only die young, we wouldn’t have a problem with Social Security, Medicare, or health care. Simple solution: shoot people on their 50th birthday. I’m sure there will be plenty of volunteers for the job.

    Unless you die young, everyone will get old.and a lot of those who are waiting for their ships to come in will find that it never did come.
    This is something that everyone under 45 YO tends to forget.
    Plus the parents who may be strong and healthy now, will sooner need care. Who will care for them?

    This is a given.

    “Simple solution: shoot people on their 50th birthday.”

    Some of Asimov’s books had “the Sixty” as part of the culture. Then there’s “Soylent Green.”
