I saw a woman who must have been in her 80s stalking shelves while holding her walker at wal mart the other day. A lot of them are going back to work around here. And btw, they did earn their social security and medicare.

Re: Why don't old people just get a job????
Old people are always looking for a free hand out. From Medicare to Social Security and every other free ticket social service out there, the elderly are a bunch of free loaders. Why should my taxes pay for their free health care and pill popping habits when all they do is lounge around watching Wheel Of Fortune and hang out all day on their porches? Old people need to get a job like everyone else and stop expecting everyone else to pay their bills!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1431854


how about a better idea!!!

seeing how everyone is paying into those government programs for their old age, golden years.

seeing how, thats what it was sold to them as.

why not instead, cut the pork instead.....

like watching shrimp on tread mills

600 dollar hammers and toilet seats

the list can go on forever........

but trillions could be saved!
Christians have had to face and realize their own sins, and feel compelled to try and help others as well.

This chant of Holier than thou is wrong and is taught by others making you think what is cool or acceptable to them.

The thought of "believe as i do" is strongly in an unbelievers life, because they feel they will be ridiculed by their friends.

Every falsehood a unbeliver weilds, is merely a reflection of the obstacles that unbeliever must face from his very own peers.

Unbelievers are the true followers, they are dedicated to fear of what other people think of them.

And because of this, they are ashamed of themselves, but wall themselves up to feel comfortable and safe, assuring themselves with rationality and laughter.

Which is insanity!

YOUR AN ASS, their taxes paid for it... your taxes are paying for your time to sit on your ass. Unless at 72 you think you'll still be working!! They paid in all their lives just like you are, and you would deny them the rights you think you will deserve when you're old.

Why don't YOU get out there and do some research, and see why Social Security was formed to begin with. My Dad worked his whole life, until he was 68. Military man, taught college, and now deserves the right to collect his pension, retirement and his Social Security. You need to grow a pair and become a man.

Because they have paid into the system . Most were working by mid teens and paying taxes. As in full time work, not part time.

They have paid into the system and that is how it was designed to work. Why don't you ponder about the women who sit on single mothers collecting yet never having even held a full time job for more then a couple of yrs? Pfft, people who have provided to the system is the least of your worries.

Hey (OP)...
How would you feel when you worked all your life & Every check you get, money was being pulled out & into SS. Then when you retire someone tells you, No. Can't have it.

Ok fine. Just give me back all the money the Government took out of my checks over the years... 20's will do.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1431645


Not true, many will hire them and give just enough hours as to not interfere with their SS...
 Quoting: BRIEF


I praise those who planned ahead and saved up their own money as to not be a burden on taxpayers and those who find a way to contribute to society. Those who made no plans and simply leech off the system need to learn the hard way about not investing in their future. Being old in itself is not a virtue and we owe nothing to the aged simply because they are older than we are.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1431854


The people here that are complaining about old people are probably the lazy welfare bitches and bastards that spend their whole lives leaching off the system. They are so afraid that the old people might interfere with their free lives sitting at home with the internet and cell phones. Sure beats working for a living doesn't it.

BTW I've worked my whole life in the blue collar sector and, yeah it sucks, but I earn my living. Maybe you lazy dumbasses should do the same instead of sitting on your lazy asses bitching about the possibility of old people interfering with your useless lives.

Yep.

Don't you just love the "see? government can't be trusted with the money!" crowd. We know its the exact same crowd of people, saying the exact same things in DC a few decades ago who dipped into the money and redirected it toward their crony corrupt projects in the first place, who are hoping the people will turn their back on their crimes now that the money is gone, because they, the criminals were in the "government" when they committed their crimes so it proves a problem with "government", not with what they did.

Of course the seniors paid into it, and thus are entitled to it. Listen to them try to redefine the word "entitlement" from that core meaning to some kind of hand out, so they can redirect focus from the crime.

There is so much corruption right now that it places a tremendous weight on the concept of the legitimacy of our government. But I have faith in the rationality of the people to demand what is right.

Employment is an old-paradigm concept. People should look for ways to earn their own income rather than being dependent upon a job. Those with jobs are just as dependent upon others for their well-being as those on welfare.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1431854


YOU are paying into your future each time SSI and FICA and a few other things are taken out of your pay check.

The 'old' people who are retired did the same thing, going all the way back to when they got their first job.

The way the system works is that the young folk pay into the system and that money is used immediately for the folk who are 'retired'.

this system works rather well if we have constant growth or even a steady birth to death ratio. but we didn't, we had the baby boom and then a baby implosion (reduction) and that reduction continued not through one, but two and now into three generations (I don't know, kids just stopped liking sex and making babies I guess).

Now congress could have fixed this way back in the 1980's by taking a chunk of social security and depositing in a low interest bearing savings account. But No, congress decided to continue spending money to fight the Commie Threat and various other things (jets and caviar are expensive).

This social security 'problem' is just bad husbandry by the congress and government. Had Reagan's congress actually done the right things social security and Medicare would be self sustaining.

Further, if anyone had been clearly thinking, the way banking is done and how it makes money from money it has sitting in low interest rate bearing accounts (via debt) this whole economic crises and Budget Cliff this congress faces wouldn't exist.

But the elite have to keep sticking it to the poor and middle class, so you gets what you gets.
