Me too.,,, but if they are still able to be productive they should allow to be. If they are canned for one reason or another then there is always a greeting type job at walmart or they can do little things to generate money. They are responsible for their own lives.That may be easier for doctors, lawyers, and businessmen to say. I worked several years in the oil refineries as a welder's helper and gopher, and can say definitively, that kind of work is not sustainable until 96! My grandfather put 43 years in the coal mines, and was good and ready to retire at 63. At 92, he's the only one of his work buddies still alive. I think letting someone retire at 65 after 40+ years of manual labor is within the bounds of reason. Today 07:23 AM
I guess thats why eskimo's when they became to old and useless ,,would take their long cold journey out in the frozen world all by their lonesome.
I like the idea of family taking care of their loved ones myself. I can't see how their offspring could ever consider neglecting them,,unless the parents were just low lifes to begin with in which case ,,,just send them out on the ice with a six pack of beer and some jerkey. And 1 bullet.
