Would it be OK for your bank to review your Income to decide if you needed the interest on your money you invested with the bank? Should your bank Means test you before giving you any interest? Retirement is an investment, the investore expects the money to have been invested to keep up the value to cover retirement. when that time comes. We are not ripping off anyone, it's just that the Retirement funds are so attractive for the government to sort of borrow. That's what happened to Social Security after 1964. Just give SS retirees T Bills in exchange for real investment money. My store won't take T Bills, they want Gold.

Smart! It seems that too many want to see, regulate, look over the shoulder of wealth business people and restrict them. The stupidest thing, in my eyes, is the fact that theses loudmouths have no solutions and fail to recognize the fact that someone has to sign the pay checks. Of course, for too many the signer is the federal government and aren't they doing a good job? Even more stupid are the loudmouths who say "If you don't like it, leave". The wealthy can leave. Of course, the open borders are proving such a sucess.

If you follow the rule in life to follow the money, the money trail increasingly is leading to a union pension, a union wage or a union contract. And it’s putting America’s cities out of business.

As more municipalities begin to eye bankruptcy proceedings as a way out of their financial mess, many believe that one great advantage of bankruptcy proceedings is that it will allow the nullification of fat union wages, pensions and other benefits that taxpayers in the private sector don’t get.

But if the example of Stockton, California serves as a guide, city officials would rather screw...
