Work Until You’re 90 — It’s Fun!

December 2, 2011 at 8:28 PM Leave a comment

The ABC Evening News w/Diane Sawyer just aired a piece about how great it is to work until you’re in your 90’s.  The segment featured a 90-year-old hairdresser who’s still going strong and yes, she seemed perfectly happy.

Kudos to her but I can’t help but wonder what the point was.  If I know the “liberal media” like I think I do, what I just saw was an opening salvo in a campaign designed to convince already-exhausted Americans that hey, if the corporatocracy takes away your Social Security, any pensions you might have, your health benefits, your accrued vacation time, etc., life’s a beach but you’re just too spoiled to notice how great it is.  And if you don’t like it, strap your boots on, put a smile on your face and work into your 90’s, and if you complain or physically can’t do that, there’s something wrong with you, not with the system.
