You’d better hope social security will be there for you, because the smarty pants on Wall Street have proven that they are happy to raid our retirement funds and use them to gamble on personal gain for themselves. When did they forget their job was to build our nest eggs, not line their pockets?
Don’t let today’s market fool you. Hundreds of thousands of us lost everything the last time they “right sized” themselves. And let’s not forget the fashionable foreclosures: devastation for the likes of us, but juicy rewards for lenders.
Any financial blow hard who has the nerve to say, ” it’s not personal, it’s just business,” is at a minimum a sociopath, and probably a thief. I divested. Zero interest in a Credit Union savings account is safer (and smarter) than believing the money-kids have changed their ways.
Happy Birthday, Occupy. Thanks for the heads up on these creepy people and their sinister industry.
