I understand that. i would also guess the 55+ age group is growing at the fastest rate of all age groups.


Not as much as you may think. People are turning 55 at about 1.5% faster pace annually than they're turning 25.

With our unfunded liabilities do you think that without massive spending cuts, and massive tax increases that we will not see the lowering of our credit rating, and increased debt?

To the point where the checks stop going out?

To the point where those that are "owed" these monies won't revolt?

Hey, if so I am all ears, but I doubt we will be able to do it.

Why? So you can compare economies to your personal checking account?

Okay, charts be damned (for stat guy Delhommey).

Older folks are used to working and will look for work and never have expected to be taken care of until it is necessary.

Younger, more progressive folks, think a bit differently. Living at home with the folks and drawing is probably okay as long as the toys can be paid for. Toys being Apple stuff, car stuff, stereo stuff, $100 guido jeans, and such.

They won't find out that the goose that laid the golden egg is dead, until it is too late. Our education system has done exactly what it intended over the last 40 years. Been working today(in fifties) and now going back for awhile. Won't be keeping you cool guys up forever though.

Your little quips are quite hilarious.

Try again at answering or at least commenting on what I posted.

Why? You don't understand basic economics.

since we like comparing the US to other countries, i think Japan is good for this thread. from inflation/% rates, jobs and the old gentrification thingy.

Am I the only person in the nation who thinks that the government is spending more than it can pay back?

I guess I am....no one else thinks that the government is overbloated.

I gues I won't either any longer.

In fact, I am going to head downtown and see if I qualify for food stamps and check on my disability policy, while wearing my Navy tee shirt that the local recruiter gave me.

Have fun. Be sure to tell people why you're doing what you're doing because they'll sure want to know.
