I am 32 and I can probably comfortably retire at 60. As long as my health holds and I still have a job, I will probably work until 70 because my wife is a few years younger than me.

I believe the USA has about the highest retirement age in the world. The French retire I believe at 47. CEO's pay raised 12% but the working class didn't see that salary raise. I'll retire when the Aliens probe me for more information on area 51. Lake Clark glows in the dark under the right conditions. These conditions cause me to BS on Journal World blogs so I might retire if I can save up enough $$.

I retired in January, but I'd go back to work at the right job.

I am retired now, even if broke, then suffer a massive heart attack trying to make money and the stress of working.

"Anybody with a trade can work as long as they want. A welder, a carpenter, an electrician. They don't necessarily need to retire. My music wasn't made to take me one place to another so I can retire early."

In my mind, I have been retired for years. I'd like to retire long before I get to 60. Happy B-Day Roe!

" I think LeBob may be more right than is funny" Autie

I wasn't even trying to be funny. You are set because you are already old. Instead of investing my money in stocks, I'm investing in ammunition. By the time you baby boomers are dead, there won't be an economy left. Just riots and scavaging.

Do I have to have a job before I can retire? I have been self-unemployed for decades.

Retire? Maybe at least when I am still breathing...at least a little. I think LeBob may be more right than is funny. When they tell me I need to retire from what I do now I want to go to WalMart and be the sporting goods manager. Or open a bait shop. Beer/bait/bolonga/bullets and ice.

At my age and the way things are screwed up, I'll never be able to truly retire. I think the idea of a traditional retirement will go the way of the dodo.
