We, as a nation have committed suicide by greed and apathy. We are a dead nation walking, and we don't even know it and couldn't give a shit less!
The following excerpt from the linked story above relates to my previous post entitled: Heads Up For Anyone Over or Approaching Age 65 "Our kids will handle this effectively. They will elect people to Congress who will vote to stop paying the oldsters and their physicians, the vast majority of whom will be dependent on Medicare payments. I call this “stiff the geezers.” I also call it the Great Default. The surviving generations that ran up the liabilities will bear the brunt of the pain, as well they should."
This "stiff the geezers" portion of the 'Great Default' has already started and will be in place long before our kids start "handling" the situation.
