    That is pure insanity.
    If the retirement age would get anywhere near 80 years old - then that society is truly a servitude-based society.
    People are living longer, however that doesn't in anyway mean that they are healthy enough for full employment. At that point - all that would happen is instead of the government paying retirement, businesses will be. Afterall many, many jobs an 80 year old couldn't begin to do.

    Yup, might as well accept the fact that you're nothing more than an indentured servant if Retirement age goes that high. Many people I know never lived past 65. What are people going to do at that age, become a Wal-mart greeter and worry about being punched in the face?

    Maybe people should save for their own retirement instead of having the fucking government take care of them.

    I've shown you people over and over again that if you would save the 15% of your lifetime income that the government confiscates from you to fund the Social Security slush fund scam that you'd all be better off, retire with substantially more money and not have to let the fucking government tell you when you can stop working.

    Stock markets crash.

    Housing gets played by the wealthy.

    "What happened to all those democrats who always said we need to be more like Europe??"

    My guess is that there weren't any, that you've created this fantasy. It is based on two cognitive efforts, one, creating this image of a cohesive and coherent group that all share the same characteristics, the second being that of making an over generalization out of some person writing a favorable opinion about some specific European program.

    "Looks like democrats have been failing for the governments lies."

    What lies are you talking about? I would expect that the lies are to follow in you post. So is it AIG's statements that is a lie? Social Securities retirement age? Greece? Europe? What?
