Maybe it's the fact that as a child then later a teenager and young adult I saw all the social promises that had been forced fed to me as a youngin reneged on over and over again but I can't help but wonder just how so many people today can be so oblivious to what is actually going on. Even if someone had not been paying a bit of attention before 2008 they should be able to see a clear pattern developing since then. Yet....
Investors still buy municipal and corporate bonds despite the haircut the investors got from Detroit and Government motors.
I still see Hillary and Bernie stickers on cars even out here.
Everyone and their mother make retirement plans counting on their pensions and social security with no backup whatsoever.
Oh I could go on. The numbers of Whites out there that still refuse to believe the so called "Minorities" are coming after all their wealth and property still mystifies me. Even with videos like the one below making the rounds every few weeks.
Not like White Americans haven't been paying reparations for over 150 years or anything, especially the last 50 or so. These types are never going to stop and the Femocrats who enable them will never stop either because it's those reparation payments that pay their salaries.
Then there is the pension and social security situation. Social security has already taken several hits and payment reductions from reduced COLA payments to pushing up the actual full payment retirement age. So the government has changed the rules and broken it's promise yet those who get pensions seem to think their so called "promise" is sacred?
Here is another article from Zerohedge on the up coming reduction of payments for the Central Teamsters union.
So my next question, before I have really even discussed the first, is, when did retirement stop being retirement and become some type of second life with mortgages, trips and toys?
Anyway. Back to the first question. When did we stop taking charge of our own lives and start expecting empty promises to be there for us? If I was ever so gullible when I was young it was quickly shaken out of me as I watched the lies pass by over the years. I have seen our very government change the rules so many times, always to my detriment, that I can't understand how anyone would think a pension haircut is not on the table.
I just don't get it. Does no one understand circumstances change and no person can make promises so far down the line that you can take them seriously? Even planning your own retirement means nothing these days. Why if those in the video above get their way the government may try and take my property to pay their reparations. All you can count on is what you can hold and skills that cannot be taken away but you should always have a backup plan.
As I said I just don't get it. Red flags going up everywhere these days and so very few seem to be seeing them at all. Only thing we can do is hunker down and prepare to take care of ourselves because it's coming. No one can stop it now.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
