Social Security Explained – Equal In Poverty

SOCIAL SECURITY EXPLAINED:

 

Jane:   Why do we have Social Security?

Mary:   Because 80 years ago people didn’t save money so our president decided to mandate savings.

Jane:   You mean I ‘have’ to pay into this ‘savings account’?

Mary:   Yes!   Of course, Silly.   You pay and your employer pays too.

Jane: Why?   Can’t I just put money into my own savings?

Mary:   Yes and no. You can save as much as you want, but the government wants to make sure you do in case you don’t… it’s a law.

Jane:   So why don’t I just invest in the stock market?   Why can’t I save that way?

Mary:   Because 80 years ago the stock market crashed and everyone lost all their money.   Many people starved and many more died.

Jane:   So Social Security will keep me from starving?

Mary:   No.   Because what they pay you is based on the cost of living 80 years ago and so you will still starve.

Jane:   But doesn’t the government invest my savings?

Mary:   Yes, but they don’t tell you how or ask your permission, they put the money wherever they want.

Jane:   But it is my money, right?

Mary:   Kinda yes, kinda no.

Jane:   What does that mean?   Can’t I get it back?

Mary:   Sortof.   You get some of it back each year after you get old.

Jane:   But what if I die before I get old? Does all the money I put into savings go into my estate?

Mary:   Silly you!   No way!   The government confiscates the money.

Jane:   But it was my money!

Mary:   It was before you gave it away.   It is kindof like charity.   You give it to them and they use it however they want and you can only hope it is going to benefit the purpose for which you gave it to them…

Jane:   But the purpose of Social Security was to benefit me!   And I didn’t give it to them willingly!

Mary:   Well now, yes you did.

Jane:   WHAT?? That makes no sense!

Mary:   Of course it does.   The government takes your money, puts it into a witch’s brew of entitlement programs to support a bunch of illegals who are escaping poverty so that you can live in poverty when you refuse to work any longer. That way, everyone is equal in poverty.

Jane:   But isn’t that exactly what FDR said he was creating this mandated savings for?   To make sure no one ever lived in poverty again?

Mary:   Boo –

Jane:   Mary!   So is poverty reduced now?  I mean compared to 1930?

Mary:   HAHAHAHA!   We only started measuring poverty rates in 1959, not 1930, not 1920.   And the numbers are all estimates.   You know, like the numbers used by the CDC and WHO.   Everything is an algorithm.   And the algorithm is only so good as what concoctions the Masters choose to insert in the formula.   They make it all up and we are told to believe it.

Jane:   But I thought that was what China did – not the US?

Mary:   Oh Jane…   Haven’t you figured it out yet?   We are China.

GERMANY INSTITUTES TOTALITARIAN RULE

Germany just took the next step to a full blown totalitarian regime!   Sovereign states within Germany are no longer sovereign and the Bundestag has given itself complete control over the entire country.   Within their first actionable move they are interning all residents thru the end of June – more likely indefinitely.

The dictator rules include:   1. Personal contact are restricted to one household plus 1 outside person.   2. Curfew from 10pm to 5am.   3.   Nonessential shops can only allow entrance of a person if they provide a negative virus test and an appointment.   If the incidence rate exceeds 150, the shop is shuttered to curbside pickup only.   4.   Schools closed if incidence rate exceeds 165. 5. Funerals limited to 30 attendees.

Germany’s Bundestag president declared curfews work because when looking abroad “…ALL countries that have regained control of high infection figures have resorted to curfew restrictions in phases”.   Given the 100% possibility is near 50%, I guess throwing out a number seemed like a good justification – albeit a false one.

Meaning Sweden decided to let nature take its course and has not mandated masks, quarantines, or closures.   Their death rate ‘with CoVid’ is 1.5%. By contrast, Germany’s death rate of confirmed cases is nearly double despite calamitous lockdowns, closures, and an economic spiral.

Nonetheless, Germany’s Deutsche Welle claims Sweden’s success is renegade – responsible for loss of life – and topping European charts in infection rates.   Infections that – recover at a rate nearly 2x that of Germanys. Yet Germany, Spain, Italy, France, all the major countries in the EU have a caseload 3-4 times that of Sweden. Someone apparently forgot to notify the Bundestag of the factual truths.

Germany Vs. Sweden:

Sweden’s death rate has actually been on a constant decline since 1988.   Wholly not satisfied with this actuality, the UN projects that a reversal will begin in 2022 and increase by 7% as of … 2100.   Ah!

Germany’s overall death rate is a full 2 points higher than Sweden.   Sounds like someone is a bit miffed given their own statistics reveal a miserable failure.

Sweden’s economy contract by 2.8% in 2020 – Germany’s economy contracted 9.7% as of August 2020.   While it bounced back somewhat, 2021 has been mired in brutal lockdown measures which will surely leave the once greatest EU country in the twalette.

It would appear, Germany is desperate to attack the one country that rose above the fray and survived!

Germany Politics:

Of course, as I have been stating, the Green Party in Germany has suddenly taken the Numero Uno place in the pending re-election. Merkel’s named successor, Armin Laschet , is known as a liberal supporting mass immigration. He is a definitive ‘Wilbur Milktoast’ who made his feeble rise in politics on the heels of predecessors simply resigning leaving the post open to him.   it would appear, his election as the milktoast candidate for the CDU was based on his inability to win.

By contrast, the Green Party selected a woman who is significantly younger than Laschet, and went to the London School of Economics – which is the equivalent in all things, including embracing Marxist ideologies, of Harvard. Her background includes membership in Alliance 90, which has roots in Socialism and Communism, advocating for Revolution.  How wonderful!   Maybe we should send her some of our best BLM and ANTIFA rioters!

She is active with the World Economic Forum in promoting escalating Climate Change Initiatives.  Because she is afterall – Their Candidate!

GREEN PARTY:  

According to the UN”s Antonio Guterres, “Countries need to submit ambitious new nationally determined contributions (MONEY) that were designed by the Paris Agreement. Their climate plans for the next 10 years must be much more efficient.”

He also urged that climate commitments and plans must be backed with immediate action, and that the trillions of dollars invested by mostly richer nations for domestic COVID-19 recovery, be aligned with the Paris Agreement on climate change and the Sustainable Development Goals, and that subsidies directed to fossil fuels be shifted to renewable energy.

“Developed countries must lead in phasing out coal – by 2030 in OECD countries, and 2040 elsewhere. No new coal power plants should be built”.     He continued to assert that global inequalities will expand if Climate Change is not reversed and we don’t give them all our money!

Apparently, despite ALL the global lockdowns, the screeching halt of production worldwide, the economic and mental destruction of vast swathes of the population – it wasn’t enough and somehow greenhouse gases and carbon dioxide emissions continued to increase unabated.  Imagine that?  How could it be??

Wouldn’t that indicate that man is not responsible – and man – can do nothing?   But then again, the measurements of dire warning are based on a time span of 150 years.   Not the 4 billion years estimated to be the life of earth.   Which would represent .00000375% of earth’s climate history.  So our esteemed climate scientists are making determination based on factors that have a ratio algorithm measure of .0000000375.

But then today’s climatologists have a really tough time predicting the weather for – tomorrow.  So by all means, let’s continue to use those verifiable algorithmic guesstimates in order to justify the full implementation of a global totalitarian regime!
