    baby8 boomers should not retire, there is no longer a reason for them to do that. 80 is the new 60. People should work today well into their 90s. Also if you are too old to work you probably should not be still alive. too many old peole just sit around and do nothing, they need to get a job!!!!

    Main problem seems obvious. For the last two decades too many people of the age to vote had constantly elected the politicians that promised the impossible and tuned out those who even hinted at the truth that SSN and other benefit programs cannot be supported without raising taxes on the middle class and especially above middle class incomes. Pay a little more now get benefits later. Yet most of the people voted for those who promised them a "free ride" without reading the fine print

    The Baby Boomers: whiny, narcissistic, self-indulgent people with a simple philosophy: "Gimme that! It's mine!" These people were given everything, everything was handed to them, and they took it all, sold it all; sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll, and they stayed loaded for twenty years and had a free ride. But now they're staring down the barrel of middle-age burnout, and they don't like it.

    Regardless of the state of the economy or how high the retirement age is raised, for the baby boomers it is just another challenge they are willing to face head on. There have been so many events during their lifetime which at the time were also deemed a "crisis", but they still came out on top even stronger and more creative.

    you think living to be 70-80 is not long enough? you want to live to the point where your body is literally failing on you.? make up is artificial. divorce is just fucked up with no legitimate reason (like getting abused or being damaged emotionally/physically etc). I mean a real reason not some bullshit reason that many divorcees are using these days. I've got no comment on liberal sexuality because apparently that's just the way mammals work.

    well we have reached a crisis in human life cycles. People are living too long. The way nature works is there should be a lot of kids, young adults, moderate amount of middle age people, and very few elderly. Life span should be no more than 70-75.
