This is OTT hysterical. I know a certain percentage of our society is convinced The End Is Near, but this kind of apocalyptic speculation just gets in the way of sensible approach to living.

I think working and saving is better than not. You can do what you like. Don't work and don't save if you like. Me, I am saving lots as it will give me more options no matter what happens down the road. When and if something changes with those savings vehicles, I will adapt to that then. Meanwhile I have plenty to retire on. It does me no good in my day-to-day-life to see boogiemen behind every bush. I don't understand spending your whole life living in reactive fear. Life is too damn short for that nonsense.



Well, besides the few posts on this board, I don't exactly fret about it. I save, save, save as well....currently to the tune of about 30% of our combined income. I chip in another 6.5% of my income into an HSA account. I plan on retiring before I turn 60 without any income from any other source except my 401k, IRA and taxable investments.

I think it's pretty obvious from her post she really didn't read what you said, or at least she didn't comprehend it. All her replies to posts, if you get down to the brass tacks, are merely a vehicle to talk about herself. In this post she conveyed she has plenty of money to retire on. Did she mention she's a very successful business owner and doesn't care about tax rates? Did she mention she has muslim people in her family and they love jews and are nice?
