Even if it isn't a terrible Ponzi Scheme (which it is, but I digress) that isn't destined to collapse in a fiery ball of death and destruction (only a slight exaggeration) because of how terrible it is (have I mentioned it's terrible yet? I can't stress that enough) when you see headlines like this:


Social Security COLA going up only 1.5%


Who can say that the most prudent choice of action is to pretend that SS is simply a tax stolen from your paycheck every month and invest like it WON'T BE THERE when you retire? If you invest like it won't matter then it won't matter that COLA is only a measly 1.5% because won't be relying on the generosity of leviathan for your financial well-being now will you? Of course not. Hell, you might realize that it's all a sham and vote accordingly...

Alright, too much to hope for. But I can't help but laugh at people upset that they're only getting a 1.5% increase in their welfare from Uncle Sugar (yes, that is what it is, I don't care how long or how much you paid into it you're on the dole pal) when, hey, that's what you wanted and voted for! You wanted it, you got it, stop whining.
