Baby Boomers retiring? Social Security Collapse? Why Aren't We Hearing About It?

in #informationwar6 years ago

Attitudes of the "elite" about government healthcare, the environment, and bitcoin are harbingers for how they feel about government fulfilling its "entitlement" obligations (social security, medicare, veterans benefits, pensions) and the effect on their vampiric economic system.

Ten or fifteen years ago there was a lot of press about what would happen when the Baby Boomers, a huge segment of our population, retired. The theory was that they would make Social Security insolvent and destroy pension systems.

The time is here. The first baby-boomers are about 70 years old now and the last are 55. Our financial system is fragile, and we are hearing nothing about the elder class who are too old to work. Why not?

Why are we hearing so much about government healthcare? What happens inside of a government healthcare system that makes management decisions about the lives of people that are either too old or too young (Alfie Evans, etc.) to pay into the tax base? It seems clear that they form death panels that decide that certain people are too much of a burden on society to be kept alive. This even applies to people who have worked their whole lives and payed into the system. Once they are no longer payers, they are liabilities. Why should the government care to keep liabilities around?

@healthranger has made a new videoabout why he thinks so much of our air, food, and water are being poisoned by government and corporate entities. Regardless of all their chatter about "Global Warming" and "Climate Change", none of the "environmentalist" politicians seem to care about our environmental quality of life unless that caring gives them more power to regulate and collect money.

Look at the recent opinions about Bitcoin of people who run Berkshire Hathaway like Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger and "philanthropist" Bill Gates and Bankster Jamie Dimon. All of these people lobby our government to give themselves more power and a bigger piece of the pie. They care to enrich themselves and "manage" everyone else by dictating what we can buy and how we can spend our money. It is clear that the notion of us having our own power is abhorrent to them. They will even come up with bizarre moral arguments as to why they think that Bitcoin should not be available:

“As an asset class, you’re not producing anything and so you shouldn’t expect it to go up. It’s kind of a pure ‘greater fool theory’ type of investment.” -Bill Gates 5/7/2018

“The computer science behind bitcoin is a great triumph of the human mind. They created a product that’s hard to create more of but not impossible. [But] I see an artificial speculative medium. (It’s) anti-social, stupid and immoral. Suppose you could make a lot of money trading freshly harvested baby brains. Would you do it? To me bitcoin is almost as bad. ... I regard the whole thing as a combination of dementia and immorality. I think the people pushing it are a disgrace. There ought to be some things that are beneath you, that you just don’t do, and this is one.”
-Charlie Munger, Vice Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway 5/7/2018

Bitcoin is "probably rat poison squared." -Warren Buffett 5/7/2018

“I could care less what bitcoin trades for, how it trades, why it trades, who trades it. If you’re stupid enough to buy it, you’ll pay the price for it one day.” -Jamie Dimon 10/14/2017

It seems clear that the people in government and corporations who want to control our lives and enrich themselves at the same time are very dangerous in the current socioeconomic environment. Their only solution is more control and more money for THEM and everyone else can either die if they ask the government to fulfill their end of the social security or entitlements contracts or do exactly as they are told and give a significant amount of the products of their work to the vampires while the 'people in charge' sink the Titanic.
