Maybe we should lower the minimum work age to 5. That coal isn't going to mine itself.

Full disclosure from Subby - I was thinking of this when I submitted the headline.

Sorry it's such a small image, I couldn't find a bigger one, and attempts to blow this one up went... poorly. Anyway, up there in the left corner it says Our Motto: Get back to work, you. So yes, I more or less stole the joke from Matt Groening.

Whew, is my conscience clear now.

Apparently the average American goes to work at 40 and lives to be 95.

Silly Jesus: This is now the libtard relationship with the evil rich

Even when they point out basic math and obvious facts, they are evil.

Cry moar, poors.


Yeah, you're a troll, and a waste of one, at that. "Poors"? Wow, big daddy Warbucks, I bet you impress everyone in the Internet these days.

Something tells me that you're still in your 20's, driving an old 'n busted '82 Celica, hanging out with a couple of friends at the gas station each weekend and talking about how you're each going to get out of the shiattown that you live in now, but 0bama is holding you down...

But please, go on about the poors.....

So there will be things that, you know, the retirement age has to be changed, maybe some of the benefits have to be affected, maybe some of the inflation adjustments have to be revised. But in general, entitlements have to be slowed down and contained.

PELLEY: Because we can't afford them going forward?

BLANKFEIN: Because we can't afford them.


obviously, this man is in desperate need of a tax cut.

To be fair, the young people who are graduating today may be 40 before they are able to find a job and move out of their parents' house.

MemeSlave: No, the problem is that old people need to die, and poor people need to stop farking. We've had enormous technological improvements, but are still breeding like rabbits and living too long. Things were great in the halcyon 50s and 60s because old people died and left their assets to the next generation, and there weren't so many stupid white trash breeding like rabbits. Then came the Great Society, and the game where nobody loses (sort of the 4th Edition D&D of the Real World) and now we're all saddled with their stupid choices.

I'm all for privatization of Social Security. One two conditions:

1) I get all my contributions to date refunded, with interest.

2) I get to chose with whom I invest that money (no "government-approved funds only" bullshiat).

I think that's only fair, and is truly privatized.
