21 Signs That The New Reality For Many Baby Boomers Will Be To Work As Wage Slaves Until They Drop Dead

The Economic Collapse

All over America tonight, millions of elderly Americans are wondering if their money is going to run out before it is time for them to die. Those that are now past retirement age are not going to be rioting in the streets, but that doesn't mean that large numbers of them are not deeply suffering. There are millions of elderly Americans that are leading lives of "quiet desperation" as they try to get by on meager fixed incomes. Many are surviving on Ramen noodles, oatmeal, peanut butter or whatever other cheap food they can find in the stores. There are some that are so short on cash that they will not turn on the heat in their homes until things get really desperate. As health care costs soar, millions of elderly Americans find themselves deep in debt and facing huge medical bills that they cannot possibly pay. A lot of older Americans would go back to work if they could, but jobs are scarce and very few companies seem to even want to consider hiring them. Right now caring for all of the Americans that have already retired is turning out to be an overwhelming challenge, and things are about to get a whole lot worse. ........

There are millions of Americans out there that have done everything "right" all of their lives, but that now find the system letting them down in their golden years. So how badly are some people hurting? These are Americans that should be getting ready to enjoy their golden years, but that are now fighting just to survive.........

The truth is that there is simply no way that we can keep all of the financial promises that we have made to elderly Americans even if the most optimistic projections for our economy play out. If the worst happens, we are going to see a lot more elderly Americans eating out of trash cans and freezing to death in their own homes. The United States is facing a retirement crisis of unprecedented magnitude. A comfortable, happy retirement is rapidly going to become a luxury that only the wealthy will enjoy. For most of the rest of us, our golden years are going to mean a whole lot of pain and suffering. That may not be pleasant to hear, but that is the truth.


  1. America is controlled by the 3 privately owned states (district of columbia, the city of london, and the vatican.) Each has it's own flag, pays no taxes and has it's own laws.

    All 3 are part of an interlocking "ONE" called "City Of The Empire" Or "Black Sun".

  2. 10:49 yes but sadly the 98% aka the sheeple believe they live in a white hat wearing free country while in actuality we are a tightly controlled Empire.

    1.5 days of the week are our slave days, paying the banksters their cut.

  3. Ok, so how do we defeat this sinister cabal? I oulined a few answers in my essay "The End of the World is Nigh - Chapter 3". To sum up again:

    From: - Go there for more.

    "There are ways to protect ourselves from these dire circumstances. There are 5 strategies that I am personally employing that hurt them where it counts.
    1. Get Out of the Markets
    2. Buy Physical Gold and Silver
    3. Stop being an oblivious Consumer
    4. Make your house a home
    5. Find way to reduce your tax obligation"

  4. It's deplorable, but the system actually encourages baby boomers working 'til they drop. The reasoning here goes is that businesses can hire minorities to fill certain menial positions, but these people tend to be less educated (and hence less productive than the predominantly white population). Hence, businesses would much rather hire the latter.

  5. It is upon our brow that we see the truth. If we who can, do not help those who need it (without government assistance!) then we truly are the sheeple, you 10:49, speak of. I cannot deny that my own situation is sometimes intolerable but I am resourceful and shall be in a position that will afford me flexibility when the time comes to help and I will help!
