Social Security attacks are designed to place enough fear in those about to retire that they won't take to the streets...
The baby booms are a massive citizenry. That's why they call them boomers, because there's so many of them.
What is a Military Industrial Complex to do when these baby boomers leave the control of the workforce (forced to work for their survival)?
You threaten to take away Social Security!
The message has been sent out. You either fuck away your retirement as you've fucked away your youth, your middle age and your Sovereignty or we'll make you suffer.
The excuse has already been planted in fertile soil and is growing as baby boomers begin to retire in large numbers.
It's scared some so shitless that they dare not retire!
Remember, if you get active in your old age they'll reach back and use the Social Security is bust cover story on you.
So keep kissing ass and shut the hell up.
