    Would you agree that oldies have never had it so good? So why are you always

    complaining?
    Big G: so you should, we have no money because we're all paying for your pensions (and holidays, and second homes!!!)
    CC: in that statement you contradict yourself. So where DID your pension come from? Your own contributions or those of the young people currently working?

    If you (correctly) conclude the latter bear in mind that when you were our age you had a relatively tiny elderly population to support.

    When are you going to realise that our pensions are not charity.
    We are just getting back the money we paid into the pension
    system all our working lives.
    The government chooses to operate the system the way it does.
    It will be the same when (if ever) you are paid your pension.
    The people working at the time will be paying you.
    We get only what we are entitled to - no more, no less.
    So stop winging and do something useful.

    I think some young whipper snapper went to mommy and daddy and needed another loan, and mommy and daddy said NO this time;

    In my view when you start to get old its like you become a teenager again thinkin this big rock revolves around you and solely you. When the oldies don't get their way they pout, its like talking to a child

    I rarely complain about anything and never the younger generations.
    Shame on me if I did.
    We here in America live better than 90% of the world's people.

    My check reflects what I put in and what my employer contributed.
    Unless you work for the US Postal Service you aren't paying for my retirement.

    I'm not completely sure what you are talking about, but it sounds to me like YOU are complaining. If you want a 2nd home and vacations (holidays?), then work hard and pay for it. The only people I know with 2nd homes and great vacations, are those that worked hard all their lives and saved.

    The people I know who are surviving solely on Social Security, really aren't making it too well. But no one I know is complaining as much as you are.
