    We scrimped & saved for over 30 years when we were younger, so we could catch a break in our 60's when our health probably would begin to fail.

    So far we've OK.  I'm just saying what worked for us.

      everyone could.  Your claim simply shows an ignorance and lack of interest in the world around you, so you can't see how god damn LUCKY you were.

      Sure, you worked hard and scrimped.  Well, so have a lot of other people for whom things didn't work out so god damn fucking good.

      My husband and I will also end up quite comfortable when we retire.  And I also worked damn hard and did without a lot for a long time.  But I still have the capacity of understanding that others didn't have the same options or opportunities as myself and had things happen to them that upset all their well laid plans and sacrifices.  That's the part you seem to be missing in your thought processes.
