S&F. I have been reading similar articles both here and in Europe. The articles are always about public pensions and never is the same question raised
regarding private pensions, 401ks or social security. If someone has a security clearance and they violate it, they can be denied their pension. This
move that some are promoting would be an eternal threat to those who do not have security clearances and did not agree to such a thing. You will never
know what has gone on in the government if retirees felt afraid to speak out.
Public pensions are not a gift, they are part of a compensation package just like your wage is. In the United States, if you get a public pension, it
is very likely you will either get no or a very limited social security package even if you have also contributed to social security. So, why is this
being discussed nationwide and in Europe now? The same reason that the military is practicing to deal with civil disturbances is my guess.

You may have read an article recently where the pentagon said that in the case of certain local emergencies they can take over control without the
approval or request of local authorities. What happens if local authorities refuse to go along, they lose their pensions and are forced to work
without pay in whatever manner the government chooses. In California there is a program called the 'Disaster Service Worker" program, it requires
all government employees, state and local, to take a loyalty oath. You might want to check it out.
