My father died 1991. My mother got Alzheimer's 20 years ago. My parents did not give a cent for my education. I do not ask them money.
You said America is not a good place to be old. I agree.
Lateralus posted a reply to your statement. It went something like this:
"Our government incentivizes people to spend, rather than save, so most Americans don't have enough saved for a comfortable retirement."
Cafe wrote you a sympathetic post.
Your answer (you refer to the post of Lateralus):
"That's a better post than any complaining about feckless individuals simply failing to save or causing problems for themselves and everyone else by being thriftless."
I was short:
An extract from a complainer's manual:
"It is not the place of the government to give money to the poor. You do it."
If you do it, you are not being thriftless?
What I said means:
The libertarian simultaneously wants you to save your money and give it to the poor.
I was on your side. Do not write rot about me and my family.
