    need a retirement age for all public employees. I mean let them get paid to do nothing where we don’t have to listen to them pretending to do serious stuff.

      I’m old enough to remember when China raised the mandatory retirement cap from 70 to 75 and American journalists lost their fucking minds, insisting that President Xi (who turned 71 in the '23 election cycle) had committed some kind of unconstitutional legislative coup de tat.

      A few months later, Dianne Feinstein died in office at age 90 and we were all told to celebrate how democratically her final two terms in office had shaken out.

        wonder what chinese get per month at retirement. I’m guessing I’ll end up w/ about $3k/month before deductions, from SS.

          Whatever they get, they start earning it when they turn 60. Chinese retirement is crazy low, and the cost of living there is incredibly cheap.
