Random conspiracy theory rant of the day. I figured this was as good a place as any to rant. :rock::rock::rock:Basically, a lot of politicians say the economic problems are caused by social security. Some even want to get rid of it.
I was talking with one of my old friends recently the other day. He’s around my age -27- and currently doesn’t work. Even though he’s fairly old, 3 of his original grandparents are still alive. All three of the grandparents live together in one tiny apartment and split their social security checks into one enormous pot. Does anyone know how much his grandparents are making just in social security alone? Approximately 20,000 a year each for a whopping total of 60,000. All of his grandparents are in excellent shape and don’t have any medical problems. They pay for his apartment, car, video game expenses you name it. The grandparents donate the rest of the money to their church and other religious groups. He does nothing, and is paid by other people-his grandparents- who get paid to do nothing.
A lot of religious and ethnic groups in America/Europe actually explicitly say that’s like “their strategy in life”. Keep as many old people alive and healthy as possible. Hopefully they won’t have to spend any of their social security money on medical expenses. Spend the rest of your left over social security money exclusively on young people of your religion or ethnic group. Basically the religious/ethnic group with the most old people alive becomes the most rich group. All the young people who don’t know any old people are shit out of luck.
Any of you guys ever watch the show Pawn stars? chuckles That show owes it’s success to social security. lol none of those antique collectors that buy all those crappy antiques are young. Nobody would ever pay their hard earned money on that sort of junk. A ton of old people go crazy at those auctions buying stuff for nostalgic reasons because they didn’t have to work for the money. 2,000 on a mickey mouse lamp, sure why not!!! I can’t believe that show is so successful and popular with young people. I find it “weird” that I’m the only person annoyed with that show.
Here’s a brilliant idea I read on a political blog. I actually seriously think it’s a brilliant and not silly or stupid. Old people should get the same amount of social security money as before but there should be restrictions on how they spend the money.
If they have serious medical problems, they should be able to spend their money for surgeries and operations. The medical field would prosper in a huge way from social security just like the current system.
BUT, any social security, and rent/living related expenses should only be allowed to be spent on services and goods provided by young people. For example, old person homes should be run exclusively by people under age of thirty five. Any restaurants they go to should be staffed by exclusively young people. A policy like that would slice the unemployment statistics in half.
In the current system, I don’t really blame young people in countries like the UK for rioting. What else are they supposed to do? The system favors old people so hard core.
