Middleclassworker are you meaning the teacher retirement pensions like the St. Paul and Duluth Teacher Retirement funds who had to give a $26 million bailout to this last legislative session? Your posting points are way past the "sell by" date.

JReader, you really have no clue. Most pensions were squandered by corporate executives. But, knowing you, you will have some BS response that the workers deserved to lose their pensions because it was the executives who deserved it. Open your eyes!

You mean those seniors on medicare MCW ? Do you mean those seniors eligible for food stamps ?

Most all pension recipients come from two groups - either public sector workers or union workers. So, just who was it that stole their money ?

You mean like the seniors that choose between needing food and wanting prescriptions? Many of these people have lost their pensions by people who wanted a half billion dollars, but certainly didn't need it.

Far too many people are confused today when trying to determine the difference between a want and a need.

I thought, the article was good, until I read the comments, how far off from something, can you people get.

I guess I am too old--posted a comment with nothing in it. I think the Assembly of God churches still encourage tithing.

The poor you speak of are on the various levels of food assistance programs already, and have trouble buying food. This writer is not talking about the people that are literally poor, he's talking about the middle class and the NEW American dream of buying on credit and the pitfalls associated with it. I for one, can say I am somewhat guilty of what he's talking about. However, if people really would want to talk about this, it's a deep issue across the middle class and it spills into all the different areas of society, including religion. But, it's not a religious issue, it's a social issue.

Why does everything in these forums turn to religion. Of ALL the words in this letter, only ONE came close to even hinting at religion, but yet, that's the first conversation in the forum. Please focus on the meaning of the letter, this is a huge concern for the upcoming generations of both parents and their children. It does affect everyone of us when things go bad and our tax dollars go to the assistance programs that go to the financially irresponsible.
