AARP~Scott Burns

Burns makes an interesting comparison of retiree pay vs. working pay. Glad I'm on the retired side. Sticks it to AARP along the way...

As far as I can tell, the goal of the AARP--- the American Association of Retired People--- is to enslave all those of working age. Once enslaved, workers will support retirees in the style to which the AARP feels they are entitled.
This would be good for the AARP because its real business is selling products to older people by direct mail, and the more income older people have, the better it is for the AARP.

These are the beggining shots that are going to be fired at pensions and Social Security payments from the government.

Scott doesn't seem to take into consideration that along the way it is possible to earn experience and be promoted? Promotions are few along the way of retirees.
