    Yeah... Unfortunately.... there are people who retired last week and need to live on what they've saved up through investing. Which is why I am against Privatizing Social Security.

    But for those not in that position... you are correct.

    It is far to volitile for use in building retirement security for sure.

    Except for the fact that SocSec is broke, you'd be correct which is why anybody who understands it is for privatizing SocSec.

    Dems 2008: These two entities — Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — are not facing any kind of financial crisis

    Dems 2011: These two entities — Social Security and Medicare — are not facing any kind of financial crisis

    If you retired last week most of your $$ should be in bond funds or money markets. Those should weather any stock market volitility.

    As for someone my age (36) I am looking forward to the extra shares my 401k deduction will buy this tuesday.

    With 20+ years to retirement its all about the Share count.
