Seniors worried about low pensions, rising health care, income disparity, and low savings returns resorting to Shoplifting and Pickpocketing. Watch for all the old folks.

Well, they have been encouraging the boomers to retrain for another more skilled career. This seems to fit the bill quite nicely. Has interesting benefits if you fail you get a few days of free room and board. If you succeed, you eat a bonus meal tonight.

Sounds the like the old spend down to the last $500 Pension Plan. Use the last to activate the SMITH & WESSON PLAN and at least get free room and board.

There are plenty of options for new careers in the non-taxed portions of the economy. Anybody watch "Weeds"?
