So what you're saying is, that you were getting out of high school or college and you began your job hunt. You decided to go for the get rich plan of striving for the golden parachute and you've essentially failed. When I got out of high school I thought to myself where do I want to be in 30 years, I decided to become a union blue collar worker in the private sector. And yes in 7 years I will retire with a very good pension. Here's the gist, you chose to gamble with your future, you road the rollercoaster, you were the rabbit racing for the finishline. I chose security, I chose boring and mundane work, at a lower wage, with union dues, I am the turtle. We all choose, everyone of us. Even people who say they had no choice, choose to stay at jobs they hate for what ever reason. We don't want to take personal responsiblity, we want to blame others for our misfortunes. Denial.
And now you are choosing to villify those of us that choose a different path. Here's a thought, "Let the tax cuts expire, so that when you do retire you can actually recieve the SS benefits that you have invested in your entire life. The fund that we all pay into, "except for the rich", so that we can help each other out; because that is what living in a society means. We gather our resources for the good of society.
I'm sorry that you feel like there is no light at the end of your tunnel, but please don't drag my children and your children's future into your dark abyss by unrepressed emotional revenge voting in 2012. A fight for unions, is the fight for the middle class. Stop your right wing anti-union rhetoric, it is not based in logic.
