Stock market correction or bear market/crash? Either way I bailed.

most believe that those in receipt of the state pension more than covered ( what they are in receipt of now ) the cost in PRSI contributions down the years , the truth is very different , its the working young who are paying for the state pension today , that was sort of ok when you had four workers for every retiree but that wont be the case in a few decades

there isnt a scintilla of evidence that the government is attempting to curb the appetite of pensioners or those about to become pensioners , minister regina doherty is particularly voracious in her desire to heap goodies upon the elderly , she is of course constantly looking over her shoulder at willie o dea who these days appears to be spokesperson for pensioner largesse
there has been a massive increase in spending on the elderly this past twenty years , it dwarfs the increases in the public sector pay bill percentage wise
First off A agree with cremeegg this is about Stock Market Correction
I am just going to open an old tread and say hi ,

....I suspect lf I opened a thread I would find the people paying lower PRSI and getting the same pension as someone seeing one sixth of there payroll go in prsi will start muddeing the waters ....
One of the many good reasons to start a thread then, let the different opinions battle it out :)

If you look back on AAM you will see the people who are piggybacking the system and are well set up closing the debate down,

I suspect you are like me enjoying your retirement having worked and paid well for it,;)

The battle is lost by the look of things most of the people who up to now would have backed and supported the people who paid very little now have to pick up the tab ,

They are not happy there resentment of people who are retired is bubbling over which is the reason why I responded to a post around 376 pointing out lots of people seen one sixth of there income go into the PRSI Fund so they have paid enough for there state contribuarty pension ,

The resentment and frustration they feel is coming because the piggy bankers are enbedded in along with the people who seen ones sixth of there payroll go into the prsi Fund so when the Government gives five euro to the people who seen one sixth of there payroll go into the PRSI fund the also have to give the piggy backers the same amount ,

Guess who will be paying the five euro for the piggy backers yes you guessed correctly there most ardent supporters will and it is showing,;)

Now go back and enjoy the pop corn I don't need to open a new post to bring them down to earth from time to time,

Very good lads, roll it on, time to get the pop corn out :D
I am afraid the Pop corn is not going to taste so nice from now on it is the people who have wealth who are being tapped to keep the piggybackers in the style the are used of,



The spokeperson for Regina new crop of 30000 to 40000 piggybacker's want the tax break done away for private pensions so they can piggy back the syetem

The people who are retired like myself will be popping the pop corn while we read about posters winging about the wrong people while there follow suppoter rips then off and the don't notice,:D:D:D:D very big Grin

I think you will be is the same boat as me in another year or two:D:D:D:D

People Who seen one sixth of there payroll go all of there working life paid up front for there pension,


I will Type slowly this time lots of people seen one sixth of there payroll go into the PRSI Fund trough many a recession lots of other paid less in good times and bad times and as I said on another post you now have to pay more to carry the piggy backers enjoy,

Hate to see resentment and frustration building up not good what goes round comes round


News FlashRegina is just after adding in another truck load of piggy bankers and there spoke person wants the tax break taken away from the people who will be paying the tab ,

they Government will always have to look after the people who seen one sixth of there payroll go into the Prsi Fund for there retirement they will only be getting back what the payed in. the embeded piggy bankers have to get the same amount good to see there supporters will pick up the tab

The piggy backers supporters are going to pay for the piggy backers seem fair to me,

there is no free lunch someone is going to pay the tab you cant ask the people who have already paid to pick up the tab again so you know who will be paying enjoy the meal,

You think things are bad now I don't think you Realise the amount of piggy backers making there way trough the system loads will be added each year and the Government will have to take more tax from earned income but more so from unearned Income seeing that is what you want that is what you will get Cheers,

For those who enjoy watching short-term market movements, it might be worth noting that global stocks just had their best week in six years -

the markets still jittery, if you are investing in out of favour sectors (like UK utilities now) they can stay out of favour for much longer than is rational then suddenly reverse course . I think many amateur investors can get caught out by this, sometimes you just have to hold your nose. I think computer algorithms exagerrating this phenomenon now aswell, if something is in a downtrend then it stays in a downtrend much longer due to computer trading until suddenly it doesn't.

european market is now below where it was twelve months ago , pretty poor considering the euro has pulled back quite a bit against the dollar since the start of the year
