One of the hot distributors of right-wing conspiracy theories these days seems to be the Give Us Liberty 1776 blog. Today, as a Thanksgiving treat, they are offering up roast retirement anxiety with all the trimmings excerpted from Mac Slavo at SHTFplan.com (the acronym is about something hitting the fan).
A new effort by the Obama administration, Congress, the Treasury Department and labor unions aims to fundamentally alter how Americans plan and save for retirement.
Warnings have been popping up over the last several years about the possibility of re-appropriating the $3.5 Trillion sitting in private retirement and spreading those funds around to Americans who are deemed less fortunate.
Apparently somebody in the government is concerned that Americans aren’t saving enough (somebody who apparently hasn’t look at interest rates lately). That’s enough to make the paranoid-styled conspiracy theorists think that their IRAs and 401-Ks are under attack.
Reading the article one has to take some care to note when an official source is being quoted, or whether it’s the nut job talking. You better get your dried foods, water purifiers, antibiotics and stuff gold in your mattress before the banking collapse of 2012 and whatever further doom awaits you.
