Covid-19 - the ultimate austerity program

Little bits and pieces of this have been bugging me more than the bigger in-your-face bits.

The NWO wants to officially take over everything. But, like any other acquisition based conglomerate, they want to absorb strong healthy targets with great future potential. No one looks forward to inheriting a sinking ship. Its just not fiscally responsible - regardless of the lives that could be saved.

Austerity is and has been a buzzword in financial markets since Greece tanked. Chicago is no better off except that it has the rest of the state and the country to suck money from as long as there is a teat exposed. Countries, states, cities, all face the same problem - unchecked spending on social programs they raided too many times and are no longer viable. Social security is a great example. Its okay for now, and maybe for another ten years. But what happens after that? What about the people who are paying into it now? What will they get out of it? If the answer is nothing, how long will they continue paying in?

While campaigning Bloomberg actually said people over 80 should be denied health care. If they get cancer or something like that they should be told to go home and die. Its not that we don't have room for them. Its not that we cant help them. Its that the longer they live, which has been increasing steadily, the longer they take money from programs like social security. No one said we should just hunt down the elderly and kill them. That would be inhumane. But there is nothing wrong with denying them healthcare and waiting patiently until they expire. It sounds like federally mandated age discrimination to me...

Enter Covid-19. Right form the start, long before any real facts were known about this virus, it was being reported that the elderly and people with underlying conditions were the most at risk. Okay, that makes sense - to a point. There is a severe outbreak in a nursing home in Washington state. Then one in New York. Then Alabama. The question is how many facilities that cater to the elderly can get swarmed with this virus before it starts looking suspicious? I don't think we have reached that point yet, but I believe its starting to look bad.

Then Italy gets slammed with this virus. A society that is rich with physical greetings, hugs and kisses, suddenly has a huge problem as social distancing is simply foreign to them. Then officials in Italy announce that patients over 80 will ultimately be left to die in order to spare beds and treatment for younger patients. Its just cruel.

My question is when are we allowed to look at this as more of a financial plan than a health management plan? Social security was a great idea. But people are living much longer now and the amounts paid into the system are proving inadequate to meet the rising needs. And that is without the program being treated like a congressional piggy bank. Either the input or the output must be changed dramatically or the whole thing falls apart.

I think it is becoming clear which end of the equation is being changed. Is it just too sinister and fiendish to contemplate? Or is it possible this is just a means to an end?

Has anyone else considered a Mafia connection in here somewhere?

Perhaps the ultimate "hit" by taking out all those aging "mama's" and "Papa's" ?

• 2 trillion missing from the Pentagon on 9/11

• 21 trillion goes "unaccountable", another Pentagon snafu

•Couple weeks ago, The FED dropped 1.5 trillion on the market to ease liquidity, went "POOF" in one day

• The FED has poured tens of trillions into repo market operations and overall market accommodation on all levels


....and we're discussing putting our beloved elderly out to pasture??

We can't afford Social Security????

Am I missing something here?

It doesn't make sense to me either. But it sure does to Bloomberg. Old people don't contribute much to society. They just take money from government programs. One of the biggest budget problems for many countries, states, and cities is funding these types of programs and one of the main reasons is the elderly. They are literally being sacrificed as we speak in favor of younger people - wage earners. I think we are all missing something here.

The whole thing smells. Remember when Bernie Sanders said we have too many choices at the store? Remember that? Before the pandemic hoax Bernie Danders was telling us that we don't need 30 choices of deodorant and we need to learn to stand in line for things and not have so many products and choices. Back then I thought that was just ridiculous for him to say such a thing, but now it all makes sense. This is a Leftist/Democrat/Communist pandemic hoax to force us all into some future life of austerity and authoritarian social control.

How about the way there are suddenly lines on the floor at the gas station and masking tape boxes for us to stand in when picking up food? As if we're little children and we have to learn something for the first time. We have to re-learn how to be good little robots. This is terrifying if you ask me. President Trump needs to stand up to this Globalist commie attack and tell the nation to get back to business as usual.

I never thought I'd see such blatant communist aggression in this country.

And that is what I am asking. When is it ok to start looking at this as something more than a health management program? is this more financial than administrative? At some point things are going to be so slanted it will be impossible to ignore but can we get a grip on this before it reaches that point?

I think you’re on to something but not sure how it will play out

It has been bugging me and I finally got a hold of why. It seems to be targeting the elderly and people with underlying conditions - the two most expensive groups in terms of health care and government aid. So, if austerity is a problem, go after the big fish first. At some point it has to be so blatant that it cant be ignored any more. Do we really have to wait that long to acknowledge this?

Listen, my friend, I have known this is a scam from the very moment the CDC announced the first case in the U.S.

We can all analyze it and see the various angles, but what can we do? Our so-called leaders need to LEAD US IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. All I see is a bunch of anti-American Democrat Globalists trying to communize us, and some fake Republicans selling their country down the river. President Trump needs to put a stop to this. Anti-American Technocrats need to be arrested, tried and hung in public. Anti-American politicians need to be arrested, tried and hung in public. We need to take back the education system and teach children to love America. We need to boycott Hollywood movies, music, publications, etc. and clean up our culture. The filth has been in the spotlight far too long. We need to push it back into the darkness and allow our children to be children and innocent for a lot longer than we currently do. Damn it, kids five years old are watching porn on their cell phones!! We have allowed our so-called leaders to incrementally tear us down and destroy the soul of our nation.

I'm angry.

Listening to the treasury secretary give a briefing right now. It's very impressive how many resources are being brought to bear to get the stimulus money out to individual Americans and impacted businesses... fast.

And an additional six trillion dollars will be pumped into the economy as the country starts to reopen.

All that money is going to have to come from somewhere and its no secret that government loves to cut programs that actually benefit people, specifically the less fortunate ones. Eliminating the elderly goes a long way to making programs more sustainable.

I am finding it harder and harder to say that the concentrated outbreaks in long term care facilities for the elderly are all coincidences and are only happening because the elderly are susceptible. These people don't travel abroad. By far the greater majority of them never even leave the facility in which they reside. The employees there, based on the few times I have been in such facilities after surgery, are not travelling internationally. Most of them seemed to be having a hard time just paying their monthly bills. Vacations to exotic locations were not the order of the day.

You also have to ask yourself if government would be spending this money if they didn't think there was a way to profit from it. Government is rarely a generous benevolent being who seeks to enrich the lives of the common man. Its typically the other way around. I think Trump genuinely wants to help, but as we have seen since the beginning of the stimulus discussions, democrats wanted to pin so much pork to that bill it needed a forklift to get around the room.
