The Ultimate Political Incorrectness

Retirement is not a right.

Social security amounts to re-enacting slavery.  It forces the involuntary servitude of younger generations to support older generations.  Not support as in they can’t help themselves and the society has deemed it desireable to not have them dying in the streets, but to support their lives of leisure.

The Iraq War cost hundreds of billions over five years.

The Wall Street bailout cost seven hundred billion overnight.

And yet these huge expenses are a drop in the bucket to the unfunded obligations (read debts to be incurred) of retirement funds at state and federal levels.  The unfunded liability of Social Security has been estimated at $52 Trillion, or over three times the GDP of the country.  Not even the Chinese can bail us out of that one.

It is the end product of the most isidious word in human culture.  

Entitlement.
