VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
From time to time I read these retirement lists and I always have to Laugh. You always assume the best place to retire is the cheapest. Personally I think while you are working you should consider how much it will cost to live where and how you want. You only have one life and so much time here, is the winter in North Dakota where you want to be or summer in Texas Really I am not saying you have to be like Romney and retire to a giant house in La Jolla,CA, but you should go where you want.
Soon enough your life will be over or you will be in ill health due to old age and unable enjoy life
Some of the places listed are not "safe". Nashville? Think again about safety. West Virginia? I believe that's the "poorest" state in the USA. Pittsburg? What is the crime rate in that city? I am starting to believe what other people post....MSN is becoming a lot of BS.
With the ecomony the way it is and those who elected our current president. Heck, none of us are going to retire before 70 or even later. By the time we retire we have to plan our funerals, no time to relax. Well maybe once we are DEAD....SO Sad, if you really think about it. We get married raise a family get life insurance pay our bills send our kids to colleges, univeristies (not to mention sports activity after school). We pay off our homes, cars etc. how long is this? from the time we start our lives maybe 20, 30 years for some even longer. We dream of retiring (which by the way is only a few years, use to be you retired at 62, 65 had more time to enjoy) Looking forward to some R&R not having to look at our watches maybe take that little vacation you promised each other you would take after retirement. But No we do not even have that luxury anymore. We work, we pay, we struggle then we Die.
How depressing...think about for a minute.
Most of the places mentioned don't have the hoods.....................and those that do the crime rate is mentioned as a negative to living there. Sad what not picking our own cotton has done to this country.
The average person can't retire now. obama and obamacare will see to that. Many good place overseas.
Developers have hit upstate New York with a vengeance, driving up property values. Many of my friends who retired found themselves back in the workforce again just to pay the ever increasing property taxes and ever-increasing expenses on homes they've held for years.
While the term "working retirement" seems like an oxymoron, stop electing morons who have developers and banking institutions in their back pockets so we can all afford to retire and stay that way.
