All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

Baby Boomers Should Retire Early

If the pathetic whining baby boomers had any real gratitude and guts they would retire and get out of the workforce so the younger generation of workers could find some meaningful work. For example almost every money show gets a phone call from some baby boomer who has at least one pension, a million plus in his IRA, owns a primary residence and a vacation home or time share, but he wants to continue working. It's common for government employees to retire at 50% of their salary and come back to government work as a consultant for as much or more money that they were making when they retired. What about all the old windbags on TV who have more money than they can ever spend, but they keep working. Okay I'll mention some names: Bill Bradley, Bob Schieffer, Ted Koppel, Barbara Walters, John McLaughlin, Eleanor Clift, and that's just off the top of my head. Yea Rush too, he's almost 60 and he's got plenty. Get out, brother and play some golf. The Baby Boomers may be the most rewarded generation America the world has ever seen. Stop whining, retire now and make room for the future generations your always taking about.
