A Manufactured Crisis

Yahoo! News - SAVE SOCIAL SECURITY WITH THE FLAT TAX

I heard George Fuckya Bush's speech on Social Security. It was a good one. He said all the things I like to hear; he was thinking long term, looking out for younger voters. But it's time for a reality check; W's supporters mostly believe they'll have ascended in the Rapture within the next decade or so. Let's see, who wins, who loses? Winners include investment banks and savy investors (the kind who can afford personal finance advisors). Losers are the less savy investors, who may end up as bankrupt senior citizens, and most investors in general, who will lose part of their investment in the form of fees charged by the banks. It's basically like you're paying a fee to gamble. Furthermore, when the economy tanks, nearly everyone loses - and guess what's going to happen to the economy when our supplies of fossil fuels run out along with a disastrous climatic shift? This is a manufactured crisis; don't get taken.
