We Knew It Was Coming

Watch your 401Ks people...I'm 55. Frankly, I knew I was going to get hosed on the Social Security Ponzi scheme, so I've piled everything I can into my 401k, hoping upon hope that it would increase in value and I'd at least have that comes the time.

Now....I'm pi**ing in my boots because they're coming for that money, too. If you don't think a guy like me isn't going to take the early withdrawal penalty and drain that account before the government gets its clutches on it, you've got another thing coming.

And if you think I'll let them force me to buy their government backed 'securities' as a forced savings program, you're also smoking dope. "Greece" is the word, the word that you heard...

I'm the 1% that actually saves money...chances are, I'll be the guy that gets stiffed into carrying some other wanker's careless and lazy arse into retirement.

The kicker is, I don't turn 59-1/2 until after this Hawaiian punk and his blood sucking goons are out of office. Not that the new boss will be any different than the old boss. Couldn't this guy have kept smoking and knocked a suitable 20 years off his life?
