All I have to do is think about all the young people, like my own children, that don't have a clue about how to invest and don't want to be bothered with it. I have seen a lot of eyeballs rolling back into their heads whenever I have attempted to educate my family about investing. I wonder how many there are like that out there that would have the same attitude?

What happens if bad choices are made and the individual ends up with little or nothing in their private account?


I guess I sound a little radical after the thoughts above, but what on earth happened to some personal responsibility???? Is it really my job to see to it that people are taken care of in their old age...based on the fact that THEY THEMSELVES didn't want to?

Well, I don't want to take care of your kids Bill, especially when they're not interested in helping themselves now. This is nothing I would be proud of or bragging about....and certainly would't tell anyone.
