The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

Unions in France say more than two million people have joined a series of nationwide protests against plans to increase the retirement age.

The same is coming here in the U.S. as Obama's commission on Social Security is recommending a similar plan - work longer, get less for retirement.

The oligarchy has to somehow pay for increased militarization and endless wars and their plan is to destroy pension funds - both public and private.

Some years ago the industry publication Space News ran an editorial saying they were sending their lobbyists to Washington to "secure the entitlement programs" which translates to going after Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and what is left of the welfare program (after Bill Clinton got through with it) to pay for new high-tech space weapons programs.
