You Did Not Give Your Son Autism, You Bought Into Quackery

The problem with autism is that there is no concrete thing you can blame.

No what ifs. You can”t look at something specific and blame it. And many patients and their parents don’t want that, they want something to blame. And the quack brigade gives them definite answers slagging things that people don’t understand.

So this one’s kind of weird. It’s a list where a mother either real or hypothetical blames herself for her kid’s autism.

Mountain Mama’s post is 100% speaking as a “mother”. The notion that somehow having a child make’s you a medical expert is laughable. And the list is a just a list of shaming and blaming things that are completely irrelevant. [Read more…]

Do Not Engage

For those who are more into the skeptical side of “A Million Gods” and let’s face it, I am kind of the jack of all trades of FTB with no “real” emphasis. Well apart from when I need to cut lose on a medical topic!

If you are aware of this there is a list of names of people going about of names of people Anti-vax simply shouldn’t engage in a debate.

I wasn’t interested in other names on the list but the name that amused me the most was mine. At the time it was at the very bottom of the list (I assume I was the latest addition) but I suspect it to have grown. You see, this was around the time I began suggesting that before we discuss vaccinations we should first discuss “immunity”. After all? We cannot discuss aeroplane manufacture without aerodynamics. One cannot really discuss “vaccination” without immunology. [Read more…]

Gay Weddings First? What Next? Humanist Ones?

In the UK you can choose to have a Humanist ceremony, but outside of Scotland? All marriage must involve a legally recognised service.

These are religious in nature. Scotland however voted in 2005 to allow “humanist” weddings. It is one of the six nations in the world where this is allowed. It lets a couple express their love and commitment through the story of life and the affirmation of those they love and cherish rather than the words of a state.  [Read more…]

Newsflash! Doctors make you sicker! Whales are not endangered! Sarah Palin to join Voltron! Obama to replace army with Power Rangers!

Ah! Hesh Goldstein. Purveyor of nonsense and woo extraordinaire and a prime example of an individual speaking as a mother. Mike Adams is a big fan naturally, hence we have to put up with this Opinion Piece called “The Plot to keep you Sick”.

If we really wanted to keep you sick, we would not treat you. You would beg for our cures as your disease progressed. Doctors have done that in the past and still do in some parts of the world. Many people have taken advantage of that power, abusing it in exchange for conversion to faith or to make money. 

“What would you do if you learned there was a concerted effort to keep you sick? And what would you do if you learned that the way they could do that was by the food that you ate? Would that upset you? Well, be prepared.”

It would upset me if any of this was true. Why the fuck would we do that? I mean seriously, we got stuff to do that doesn’t involve killing you slowly through complicated and expensive food modification.

The best way for me to explain this is to put it in the vernacular of the street, relating to it all as pimps, hookers, and tricks.

I am sure you could think of another way to describe us without embarrassing us with your grasp of pimping.

The pharmaceutical industry, first and foremost, is in the business of selling drugs. In order to sell drugs, people have to be sick. They have to be sick either through natural causes or by inventing diseases. We’ll get to the natural causes down the road.

No shit Sherlock. Inventing diseases? This should be good.

Up until about eight years ago there was never such thing as “Restless Leg Syndrome”. Before “Gastric Reflux Disease” took on such a fancy name, it was simply known as heartburn. These are just a couple of examples of how the pharmaceutical industry invents diseases to sell drugs. I wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t come up with a disease called “Refrigerator Door Syndrome”. I guess the main symptom of that would be opening up the refrigerator door and looking for something that didn’t exist five minutes ago when you did the same thing. 

Up until 150 years ago people thought leprosy was caused by making the abrahamic god angry. Turns out it’s mycobacterium leprae. Gastric Reflux Disease is a variety of disease from simple heartburn to more sinister issues such as echalasia cardia and sphincter incompetence. Echalasia cardia means food sits in your oesophagus. These are not made up diseases but ones that can be seen on an x-ray. It’s just that some drugs apply to a whole gamut of diseases. And Restless Legs Syndrome is a condition seen in Chronic Kidney Disease. Way to give an example that’s real and quite nasty. Stay classy!

The one thing they don’t tell you when you take prescription drugs is that because they’re synthetic toxic chemicals there is a really good chance that you will experience severe negative reactions to these drugs. The bad news is that President George Bush made it so that you can’t sue the pharmaceutical industry if you get sick or die. So basically you’re just subjected to taking their drugs and hope for the best.

Actually we do tell you. I make it very specific to my patients the side effects of medication and hence encourage prevention rather than cures. And “synthetic” has bugger all to do with “toxic”. There are plenty of natural toxic chemicals that we use too such as Curare and Atropine. Even willow bark extract (AKA Asprin) causes side effects such as stomach ulcers. No. You have a choice. You can take our drugs and have a good chance of surviving a lot of diseases, or you don’t have to take our drugs and cross your fingers.

In the year 2007, or thereabouts, the Governor of Hawaii, Linda Lingle, spend $15 million of taxpayer money to stockpile the Tamiflu vaccine, which was supposed to ward off the bird flu pandemic that never came. The irony of this is that in 2009 it was proven that the Tamiflu vaccine was completely worthless and that it didn’t work . The other scam was the H1N1 flu vaccine that was created to contain the swine flu pandemic. That one never materialized either but they sure sold a lot of vaccines. Now, in Hawaii, because they’re holding so many vaccines that never got used, they are recommending that children starting at 6 months old must get a second shot. See what I mean about the pharmaceutical industry being a pimp? Another nightmare is the Gardisil vaccine which treats the papilloma virus. Not only are they giving it to young girls to prevent cervical cancer, now they want to give it to young boys as well. What they are not telling anybody is that this vaccine causes sterility.

Tamiflu is not a vaccine but an analogue of sialic acid that inhibits influenza viruses and not a vaccine. So the first bit is madness. The second bit is a treatment for preventing HPV infections. It must be administered pre-intercourse and the safest way to do that is to give it to young children since vaccines don’t work in retrospect. It stops uterine cancer in women. In men it will reduce the incidence of genital warts (sterility) and penile cancer (sterility). The vaccine has no link to sterility any more than the actual diseases. Uterine cancer is rather common and it turns out the vast majority of uterine cancer is caused by HPV. Genital warts are common enough to be listed as a major STD. Penile cancer is relatively rarer than these but it is still up there.

Other big pimps on the planet are the big food companies. These guys are merciless. They don’t care what they sell as long as they sell it and make a big profit. The best way to do that is to sell you food full of fat, sugar, and salt – the heavenly trio – to keep you hooked.

No one is forcing you to eat unhealthily. Doctors keep telling people to eat balanced food for a reason. 

Let’s look at reality for a minute. Most people are hooked on a flesh-based diet. People are so addicted to this due to conditioning that they can’t see reality if it came up and bit them in the butt.

By the time an animal is slaughtered, that decomposing flesh doesn’t m
ake it to your supermarket for at least a week. Do you mean to tell me that after a week a dead body can remain as bright and rosy as you see it in the supermarket?

Conditioning? Mate, we have canines for a reason. Our bodies do really poorly at digesting pure vegetarian diets. We need a balance between meat and vegetables. And meat contains essential amino acids which are lacking in plants since we are pretty much made out of meat ourselves. 

And not only that, but that you can walk into the supermarket and not be bowled over by the stench? Why is that? It’s because of the color enhancers and the stink reducers and the ammonia to kill the bacteria and the carbon monoxide to keep it pink and rosy, that it stays that color and doesn’t smell.

Because stuff is frozen! Honestly, if you take a freshly killed animal and place it within a cold environment, the things that make meat rot do not occur. Ammonia would smell to high heaven and make your food taste bad. Carbon Monoxide is a gas and applying it to your food would turn it bright pink rather than the deep red of red meat.

Chicken is even worse. After the chickens are killed they are, if you’ll pardon the expression, cleansed in a bath full of pus, urine, doo doo, and rot. And the USDA says, if you cannot see the doo doo through the clear wrap, it is okay to sell.

I checked with the USDA, they don’t say that anywhere. And after chicken are killed you have to pluck the feathers off, drain the blood (since we as westerners have forgotten how useful animal blood is as a binder in our food. I am myself quite partial to black pudding. It lets me pretend to be a vampire without the sparkles.) and then wash them with running water. No one does this. I have seen chicken being slaughtered in places with no FDA oversight and this does not occur at any given point. What you are describing is the process of loosening feathers where fresh killed chicken are dipped into hot water to make it easier to de-feather.

When you buy a food that is processed, you are buying something that is devoid of natural flavor and contains MSG, or a euphemism thereof, to give it its flavor. Did you ever wonder why when you go into a supermarket you can see food on the shelf for weeks without it spoiling? Did you ever wonder why that was? It’s because of all the preservatives to increase the shelf life to increase the profit to not have any loss. Nowhere in that product is there any concern whatsoever for your health.

There are other methods of preserving food. Tins for example are sealed hermetically without air. Freezing is also pretty good. No need for any artificial flavours there. Making Jam and Pickles are methods of preservation that are millennia old. Not all processed food is evil, some of it is very sensible.

In Hawaii, we have the rare distinction of being the Spam capitol of the world. We even have Spam festivals here. I have a friend who told me he was friends with the Hormel family children, who by the way are all vegetarians. They were forbidden to eat Spam. Hawaii also has another distinction – it is the colon cancer capitol of the world. Some people will never learn.

It’s because pork was the food du jour of Hawaii. During WW2 preserved pork became popular as wartime food in the natives who had never seen such food before. Just encourage people to eat less spam, not be a complete killjoy. You only live once you know and food is rather delicious. 

Then another outrageous pimp is Monsanto. Monsanto says they will save the world with the food they produce – the genetically modified food they produce. What does that mean? It means that they take a food and make it impervious to whatever amount of their cash crop Round Up they spray on it. In other words, they will spray the hell out of the food with their favorite pesticide to make sure that no weeds or bugs hinder the growth of their products. Just as a side note, in India they did an experiment. They went out into the woods and they hung normal food from one tree and genetically modified food from another tree. They came back a week later and found that the regular food was all eaten and the GMOs were untouched. It’s not hard to realize that the animals are innately smarter than the people.

I call utter fucking shenanigans here. Monsanto are many things. Thugs, jerks and arseholes but they won’t sell you food that’s going to kill you because it’s an idiotic proposition. They need you to live to buy their food again. And I am in India, I will guarantee you that monkeys will eat anything you leave out. If you leave your shoes outside you are better of buying a new pair rather than one that has been in their filthy little paws. They are complete pests. And people like you helped stop the rolling out of golden rice, a plant which will save thousands of lives across the world if asia and africa since it fights beri beri. Some people do not have the luxury of our diet to get fresh vegetables and rely on staples. 

Moving on to the hookers now, I guess the head of that group has to be the medical profession. With the best of intentions these guys go to medical school and wind up being subjected to curriculum that is funded by their pimp, the pharmaceutical industry. When they graduate from medical school they come out with a “take-a-pill” or a “cut-it-out” mentality. To say that when a person graduates from medical school is nutritionally clueless is an understatement. When a doctor treats a patient for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type-2 diabetes, arthritis, constipation, or whatever, it is always with drugs. When an oncologist treats a patient for cancer it is always with chemotherapy, radiation, and endless periods of time when your immune system hits rock bottom. Nowhere, ever, do they ever treat with nutrition.

Now it’s personal. I don’t get any funding from my pimp. I didn’t even know the pharmaceutical industry gives out money in the quantities you imply. The biggest thing I have gotten out of a drug rep is a little case for a laptop (it does not fit). Mostly its pens, highlighters and stress toys. Do you want to know what the treatments for those diseases are?
1.       Hypertension – Caused by Genetics, Foetal Factors, Obesity, Alcohol Intake, Sodium intake, Stress. We tell people to control that in mild hypertension by lifestyle changes that include eating differently. In medium to severe we employ our drugs. There are secondary mechanisms such as renal and endocrine disorders that need different drugs.
2.       High Cholesterol – The treatment is to reduce sequestered cholesterol rapidly. We also tell patients to alter their diet.
3.       Diabetes Mellitus – caused by insulin deficiency. Autoimmune disease treated by insulin administration and by altering diet. Seriously if you don’t control it your feet fall off and you die of kidney failure. Insulin has changed the disease from lethal to chronic and allows patients to eat a normal diet. You can control some levels of diabetes without insulin and we encourage a diet for that.
4.       Arthritis – Auto Immune disorder. Most of the medication is pain and inflammatory related to make life easier.
5.       Constipation – Symptom rather than pathology. Variety of reasons. Roughage is the usual treatment for most people and changes of diet. Few cases do we respond with hard drugs. There are some severe cases of constipation that require a variety of laxatives.
Nutrition? We treat with diet modifications. Nutritionists are snake oil merchants, a dietician is a scientist. And cancer kills people. Chemotherapy saves lives. If you are encouraging people to not take chemo and instead eat magic fruit then you are quite possibly killing people.  

Then of course you have the mainstream media that will do everything to protect their advertising dollars. Which, by the way, comes from pharmaceutical ads and ads from restaurants selling the foods that make sure you always see your doctor. Not only that, but the articles that appear somehow never favor plant-based diets or natural cures. Did you ever wonder why that was? It’s all about money! No one really gives a damn about you being healthy.

So pETA do not advertise nowadays? Articles favour balanced diets. Plant based ones have issues with balance that have to be supplemented artificially. For that you may as well eat a healthy balanced diet and enjoy your food. You are so worried about being healthy you have lost the love of a good steak there mate. (yeah as an atheist Hindu I do know that steak is amazing…) Enjoy your food, eat healthily but don’t let it dictate what you eat. Sometimes you need to eat a chimichanga.

Next we have a government agencies. We have the FDA, affectionately known as the Fraud and Drug Administration; the CDC, affectionately known as the Centers For Deceit Control and Procrastination; the USDA, affectionately known as the US Department of A@#$%&#s; and the FTC, affectionately known as the Federal Treachery Commission. Why do I describe them as such? Because they do anything to protect big business and little to protect the people.

The CDC encourages vaccination. If it wanted to “help big pharma” it would be anti-vaccine. A single round of tamiflu to fight influenza infections is around $60 at the low end. Pricey but that’s what R&D costs are and people do have to make a profit. Nothing comes for free. The flu vaccine is a lot cheaper at around $1 and would stop the spread of the disease in other people as well earning its cost back many times over. This is without calculating ICU flu patients who cost 1000s of dollars a day to keep alive or the mortality costs of not taking the flu vaccine. Vaccines save money and lives and are the most effective way of stopping a disease cost wise. These are big businesses because in order to make a vaccine you need money to run very expensive research labs. 

It is a known fact that cherry juice is a great remedy for arthritis pain. Yet, the cherry growers can’t say that and if they do the Fraud and Drug Administration will shut them down. Celestial Seasonings, the tea company, made the mistake of saying that one of their teas was sweetened with Stevia, a natural herb. Well, the FDA wouldn’t hear of that. So, they told them that if they didn’t take Stevia, listed as a sweetener, off the label they would shut them down. Pimps, hookers and tricks.

A fact you say? We can test it out. We get three drinks. One artificial water with cherry flavour, one cherry juice and the third the actual NSAIDs we provide and we test them side by side. We give it to arthiritis patients and empirically decide which is better. If we win, everytime you make a claim about cherry juice we break your legs (metaphorically speaking of course. We really just drag your name out and expose you as the charlatan you are and stop you from giving medical advice without knowing much about medicine.) Also… The FDA regards stevia as a safe consumable. It didn’t in 1991 when there was a complaint and evidence of mutagenic properties. 

You all know that the CDC is a big pusher of fluoride. What a travesty that is. But what you didn’t know was that in their Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report of August 17, 2001/ Volume 50/ Number RR-14, on Recommendations for Using Fluoride to Prevent and Control Dental Caries in the United States, on page 4, in the third paragraph, it says,” fluoride’s predominant effect is post-eruptive and topical.” This means it works on the surface of the tooth after the tooth has come into the mouth. Nowhere, anywhere, does it say you have to drink the poison. Pimps, hookers and tricks.

In poorer nations they use chlorinated water which tastes awful. And the word topical means to place in your mouth. The LD50 is 12.5 g. The concentration in water is 0.5 mg/L. In order to OD on water based fluoride you would have to ingest lethal amounts of water. 12500 Litres of water to be precise if you weigh around a 100Kg. 12 and a Half Tonnes. 

The USDA is in bed with the dairy industry. The USDA protects the dairy industry as if it were a golden goose. Let me give you a good example: back when Bill Clinton was the the President, he hired Dr. Josylyn Elders, a black woman, as his Surgeon General. Dr. Elders, in her first week in office was going to make the announcement that Blacks were 95% lactose intolerant, that Asians were 80-85% lactose intolerant, that Latinos were 75% lactose intolerant and Caucasians were 70% lactose intolerant. Dr
. Elders never got to make that statement. She was fired after a week. It’s a classic case of a government agency protecting big business rather than the people.

I would assume the USDA is pro dairy because they are an agricultural body. The incidence of lactose intolerance in the USA is 11%. There are 30 to 50 million people who suffer from intolerance.

These are just lies. No seriously, your pants should be on fire and your nose should be long enough to poke out someone’s eye out. If one is lactose intolerant, one does not buy milk anymore because it gives you diarrhoea and cramps. These values are verifiable. I would quote a medical textbook but you probably would claim that it is a book of lies. Instead again I offer to put out a poll to find out. 

Next we have, on the hooker list, the Public Health Officials. Boy oh boy, do they love to push vaccines full of mercury, thimerisol and toxic adjuvants. Autism anyone? Recently, an organization named Autism Speaks went public about trying to reverse autism. And they listed so many things that they were going to do. But somehow they failed to mention the vaccine connection. So I asked that question to the Director of Autism Speaks. I was told that vaccines do not contribute to autism. I then asked if the organization accepts donations from the pharmaceutical industry. The answer I received was, “not that much.” Pimps, hookers and tricks.

The MMR Autism link was sunk. Mr. Wakefield prostituted himself to the anti-vaccine movement in order to make a lot of money as part of a class action lawsuit. He tampered with data and showed no rigour in experimentation. Thimerisol is rarely used. Mercuric compounds are chelated out quite harmlessly. Toxic adjuvants such as formaldehyde are naturally produced in your body in larger quantities than in a vaccine vial.

Anyway, with regard to vaccines, a child by six months old has received nine vaccines. By the time the child is seven years old it has received 47 vaccines. And by the time that person is 70 years old, they have received 160 vaccines. You really mean to tell me that there’s no danger in this? In New Jersey and New York there are no exemptions to vaccines. They are trying to do the same thing in Hawaii.

There is a slight danger. However the danger is not taking those vaccines. All those diseases are killers or mutilators. And the vaccine schedule for different countries is different. I am pretty sure american kids don’t get the BCG vaccine. Your viewpoint exists because of vaccines. Without vaccination you would remember what polio did to people and how smallpox killed or the fear of tetanus. 

Recently, in Hawaii, there was a Hearing in which a bill was introduced to offer vegetarian and vegan meals in the public schools. The bill said that these meals “shall” be entered in the public schools. Two entities voted against this. The Board of Education and the Department of Health. When the wording of the bill was changed from “shall” to “should,” meaning that now they had a choice to do it or not, these two entities voted in favor. Nothing like keeping kids sick and protecting the interests of the corporations.

Are you seriously telling me that your country is so bullshit that it cannot offer a vegetarian option? Vegan options for children are not a balanced diet and I would regard it as abusive as vegan diets lack in Iron, calcium and essential amino acids which are things children need growing up. I cannot endorse it as a medic as a healthy option since it is completely imbalanced. 

I guess we also have to add the “shrinks” to the “hooker” list. They are a group of jerks that invented “Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder” as an excuse to put kids on drugs just because they might space out in the classroom.

ADHD children do not “space out”. Their minds are as if a bomb has gone off. They cannot concentrate on anything and twitch and run around and are incredibly tragically uncontrollable. The medications are given to help parents deal with them in severe cases.

Let’s talk about the Dentists for a minute. Because the Dentists are hesitant to accept the low pay that Medicaid pays, they advocate fluoride. What a convenient way to ease their guilt. In Alaska, where dentists seldom go, especially in the remote parts, there are people that are trained as DHATS (Dental Hygiene Attending Therapists). These people can basically do what Dentists can do and are willing to go anywhere in Alaska. Guess who opposes them? The Dentists that refuse to go into the “boonies” to treat the people.

Fluoride genuinely helps prevent caries in teeth. It’s hardly rocket science and was tested to death. The statistics are phenomenally in our favour and the price of treatment with fluoride.

Let’s get back to Monsanto for a minute. We already talked about their GMO scam, but don’t forget these are the people they gave us Agent Orange. And we all know how wonderful this chemical is and the lasting effects of its exposure to our men that fought in Viet Nam. Recently, there was worldwide news that the bee colonies were collapsing. Why do you think that was? Because the bees have a hard time with the GMOs. In addition to all of Monsanto’s horrors they are also involved with MSG and Aspartame. Nothing like putting something out there that screws up your brain as well.

Bees are dying out because of a tick parasite. Our inbreeding has reduced their ability to resist the parasite. They drink nectar, how on earth would GM nectar poison them? Agent Orange was a terrible invention but was done during a war back when people didn’t know anything. MSG is a Chinese cuisine invention that gives the 5th taste. Aspartame is an artificial sweetner. Agent Orange causes birth defects by the way. Nam veterans have PTSD not Agent Orange poisoning. War screwed up their brains. Soldiers in WW1 and 2 also had it quite tragically, its only now that they receive support. 

Hopefully, at this point you have a clear indication as to why you have to take complete responsibility for your health. You have to understand one thing: adhering to a flesh-based diet will cause you to succumb to degenerative disease. And even though the animals have died so you can put them on your plate, they have the last laugh from the grave by giving you arthritis, heart disease, cancer, constipation, and type-2 diabetes for openers.

None of those diseases are exclusive to meat eaters. Arthritis is an autoimmune disorder and affects vegetarians equally. Heart Disease is actually reduced by consumption of fish. We may have more cancer but we survive our surgeries more than vegetarians do (Haemoglobin baby, we got more of it
and more RBCs too). Constipation is helped along by a balanced diet and Type 2 diabetes is not caused by eating meat but by damage to the Islets of Langerhaan cells in your pancreas.

This diet, affectionately known as “the diet of death,” adversely affects personal health, healthcare costs, and our children’s ability to think clearly. This diet has a negative affect on Corporate America because the workers poisoned by processed foods suffer from repeated sick days, the inability to focus, failure to learn, and failure to create new ideas. With their brains fueled by junk foods and with failed education giving them few options for earning an honest living, more people turn to crime. In time, the prisons become filled with people incarcerated for behavior that could have been at least partially prevented with proper nutrition. With disease rates skyrocketing, violent crime on the rise, education failures rampant, and healthcare costs bankrupting families, happiness hits an all-time low. As junk food consumption continues through multiple generations, the genetic integrity of the population declines. Then, because the population is dulled out because of all the junk foods they are eating, economic productivity hits rock-bottom and employers shift jobs overseas where people seem to have much higher levels of productivity. To say this is a losing situation is a gross understatement.

This is all bollocks. I am sorry but I have probably lost most of my few readers with the length of this. Everything in your article is filled with failure and weak sauce. People have too many sick days because the USA has no socialised medicine to catch disease early, instead people try and push through the disease aggravating it racking up sick days. Children drinking coca cola is the fault of their parents rather than the industry. Education standards have been rising unless and until idiots put their mitts into the system suggesting pseudoscience.

The genetic integrity thing is just madness. Are you seriously suggesting that junk food alters DNA? I want proof. You cannot make such claims without proof.

Earlier in this article we talked about the pharmaceutical industry wanting to drug everyone and anyone to make a buck. But we really didn’t talk about the problems that a medicated population invokes. Medicated drivers are no different than drunk drivers. This dullness also carries over to the workplace where medicated workers tend to make many more mistakes. You have people taking a medication to treat one disease and this somehow creates another disease because of the adverse effects of the synthetic chemicals. Because the pharmaceutical industry has a monopoly, the high pricing of the medications creates very high healthcare costs. And when those medications pass through the bodies of the consumers and eventually get dumped into the rivers and other waterways, they pollute the environment. And now, believe it or not, the FAA has relented and is allowing pilots to fly while on antidepressant drugs. Shades of Columbine!

All of this depends on the medication. Asprin is a medication and it’s not going to change my reaction times. And we do warn people as to the effects of the medication. And all medicine has side effects, we do mention them specifically and only administer medicine if the actual disease is worse than the side effects. Morphine’s addictiveness is less of an issue when you are dying in pain of cancer.

Let me leave you with one last thought: if there was a concerted effort to keep you sick so you could die early and assuming you could die before you reached age 67, who do you think might benefit? How about the government? And why? Doesn’t Social Security kick in when you reach age 67? If you die before you reach that age there is no danger of Social Security ever running out. That’s because you won’t be around to collect it at the age are supposed to. Food for thought!

So this is a giant conspiracy to kill you guys by the age of 67 so we don’t pay your social security and we do this by wasting billions of dollars on stupid plans that you can fight with carrots…
Repeat after me class. If I ever wish to defeat anyone for profit I will make sure my plans cannot be undone by the application of legumes. 
You are spoilt by our medical system, if you were to live in say Swaziland you would be regarded as a freak for reaching 72 years of age which is more than twice their life expectancy. If we wanted you dead we would stop treating you for diseases that kill you and instead leave you to die.
