Thread: Letter from Social Security

  1. #1

    Default Letter from Social Security

    So my fiancee got a letter from Social Security yesterday. It was basically a flyer saying how awesome SS is. Here is a quote:

    Will SS still be around when I retire?

    Yes......
    The SS board of trustees now estimates that based on current law, in 2041, the trust funds will be depleted......
    Therefore, the taxes that are paid by workers will not be enough to pay the full benefit amounts scheduled.......
    However, this does not mean that SS benefit payments will disappear. ...
    enough funds in 2041 from taxes paid by workers to pay about $780 for every $1,000 in benefits scheduled.
    So why would anyone want to pay into this?

    Remember that most people are not aware that Social Security is a Ponzi Scheme

    I sent a letter asking for their opt out form because my parents knew not what they were doing when they signed me up for it when I was born. In fact I never had a choice I told them. Never heard back from them.

    We need millions asking to opt out of the program.

    It's easy, not only do you get some of your money back when you retire, but you get cage insurance on top of it.

    Myself, I buy it mostly for the cage insurance.

    The use of force to impose morality is itself immoral, and generosity with others' money is still theft.

    If our society were a forum, congress would be the illiterate troll that somehow got a hold of the only ban hammer.

    This is the same reason I pay taxes, actually, as well. I'm not very enthusiastic about the war on drugs, or foreign wars, or government education, but that cage insurance is invaluable .

    Because if you die early, you do not want your greedy relatives fighting over your excess money. This way spares them that pain. Duh.

    Could you supply a scan of it? I'll put it up on digg with the headline "PROOF that Social Security is a fraudulent Ponzi Scheme" - should get a reaction

When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank...You are a den of vipers and thieves.
