    Late October the pension reforms were passed in France. IOW, workers, not welfare folks,had to take the hit.
    Strikes and protests are all over the news over there. The students now are facing massive cuts and they are asking for private pensions to be tapped into.

    I normally do not link. Those that disagree with you do not bother to read it anyway.
    I rarely read links. I go and research things myself.
    No one links something that contradicts what their position is anyway so what is the point?
    Last link I put up was Chris Farley and the "Van down by the river" routine!

    All the 'ideas' of the left come from Europe. Funny cuz I was taught that America was unique among the world.... one of the reasons I dislike the left... they want to destroy our uniqueness.

    You are absolutely correct. Earlier this year the obama admin had one of its flunkys make the suggestion that all private retirement plans be forced to by US securities.

    It didnt go far. The guns are still loaded.

    I'll worry about that when the time comes. But as of now, no one that I'm aware of is after my private pension fund. Perhaps you could specify which "democrat" it is that you allege is doing guilty of this.
