    What does any of this have to do with ME?

    It seems like they are mad at the wrong people. Who were the decision makers that determined how the pension money was to be invested or spent? If something shady went down then those people seem like the ones the fireman/police should go after for restitution. Of course, if nothing shady happened and the pension fund investments just didn't do what they had hoped... then isn't that just bad luck and the risk one takes the minute he/she take her money out of one's mattress? Since when do we get to recover "damages" from disinterested parties?

    The saddest thing is all the justification and glamorization that's going into this foregone conclusion. Rather than figure out why future generations will be made up primarily of renters and solving some problems, we are telling them that it's a preferred way to live. So, if it were so great... Why haven't all the previous generations been jumping on that bandwagon? Of course, if the youngsters just have to own something, they can get one of those super-awesome Tiny Houses. It's such a load of crap! When the 20-somethings realize that they will be stuck renting half their adult lives, paying outrageous monthly rent amounts determined at the whims of their landlords, and that their only alternative is a wired/plumbed PLAYHOUSE -- I have no doubt they will make everyone pay for screwing them so badly. Just in time for all of us to be truly old and helpless.
