come on you know everything someone gets guaranteed from gov't does not count . it is only what others benefit from that does. just like everything in life. anything someone wants to change whether taxes ,housing laws ,etc is always going to be either something they don't benefit from or something that does not effect them or the level they are at.

notice all tax changes or changes people want in social security are always above the income they are at ?

You forgot one. "They earned/deserve it! "
I agree with you 100%.

I retired young and plan to die old. Of course what we PLAN is not always what we GET.
The very early retirement was the best and most expensive gift I ever gave myself.

Man you really hate me lol.

As I always say now: go back and find when I bothered to type a full reponse to you and respond to it. Not wasting time with your nonsense again. I’m sure I’ll be enjoying my sick retirement long before you answer me so why bother?

I've worked since I was 17. I went to school and earned a bachelor's degree. I've had good jobs and not so good jobs but I don't ever remember getting up in the morning and saying to myself "oh boy, I get to go to work today", LOL. Work has never defined who I am nor do I rely on it to give me something to do with myself.

My Dad passed at 99 and I retired at 34, both lived in NYC for most of our lives and both started our own companies. My Dad officially retired at 60 but really kept it up till about 84. Died with millions and I did not want that to be my life. Now that I am married again and wife is 30 years younger with a 2 and 12 y/o I can probably use those millions to leave too my Wife and kids. It all works out in the end, I guess.
