Tolerance for others' opinions? Silver spoon?
I'll accept right wing nutbars who all claim that a socialized pension plan with indexing is their birthright. Me, I came from a family with lots of kids and no money, and any savings I have, I did myself. Paid for my own education, and live by my own income.
Those who have a pension plan should be careful whining about the evils of socialism, since a defined benefit pension plan is, by definition, a socialist structure.
I dare say I don't need advice from you, of all people, on tolerance and respect for others' opinions.
Quite a long line of those socialism hating conservatives lining up for their self proclaimed due from the government. Yet see how quick they are to pull out the knives when it comes to the poor sucking at the same teat.
If you're pension isn't enough to live on, it's your own fault and you can consider part time employment to make ends meet. I understand there are opportunities in the restaurant and hospitality services which probably could use a few older workers if they can learn to shut up and do the job.
Cheers to someone else who knows to save and invest for those years when no one is going to give a crap about you.
For the rest of you sponges...
