An opinion from an uncaring bastard

It's morally wrong to allow a sucker to keep his money.
W. C. Fields

I have been listening to the golf and craft's retirement crowd whine incessantly about how this recent downturn has destroyed their plans and may keep them from enjoying a full and rich retirement.

Fuck you.

Here is the deal folks. You got sold a title to the Brooklyn Bridge by a bunch of hucksters. They took most of your money and now they are doing everything in their power to extract the rest before the whole damn thing cracks up. They told you that you could reap more than you sowed and that you could take out more than you put in. Yeah...that has always worked.



Your dream of retirement to golfing and pederasty was based on a Ponzi scheme. The numbers were always there staring us in the face. All you had to do was read and think. But Noooooo, you had to believe in the power of a perpetual motion machine peddled by slick ivy-league, well-tailored, manicured, and coiffed thieves who pocketed your cash and bought into the high life at the Hamptons and Vail. And the reason that they pocketed your cash is because you were a greedy fuck who bought their line of bullshit because you thought that you could be rich.

Now that the jig is up, and you have suddenly realized that you have been taken to the cleaners, you want me and the rest of the country to pull your chestnuts out of the fire. And Goddammit, you will probably succeed because the two parties had to dredge long and hard to come up with the quartet of idiots who we have to choose from.

Just think of this. How many times have you heard the phrase, "Whew, the government is taking over, now things will get better."

Not being content to fuck away your money on stupid Ponzi schemes, you now want to drag me down with you.

The most feared words in the world:

I'm from the government and I'm here to help.

The federal government caused this problem. Now we're going to let them try to fix it? The only way this problem will be fixed is for the government to stop messing with finance issues.

Well the same is true of Social Security. And we will get to pay hugely inflated FICA taxes for years to come to support the Baby Boomers.

The younger generations are just getting the shaft. Freaking Baby Boomers..
