Good day. I enjoyed your book, and wish I had bought it before I wasted a lot of money.
The reason I am writing is to confirm or deny rumors about Argentina nationalizing all private pension plans. The rumor is being floated here in the U.S, along with rationing health care and a host of other problems our government is creating for us. Can you shed any light on this subject?
Thanks, glad you enjoyed my book.(for now, only available at Lulu's)
I would have saved money too if I knew what I know now, when I started preparing.
It’s experience and making mistakes. As they say, it’s better to learn from other’s mistakes.
It’s not a rumor, they did STEAL all our pension funds:
What’s funny is that they did it with a big enough press campaign, buying out opposing politicians and reporters, it ended up sounding as if they where doing us a favor.
I’d say most people here think it was a good thing.
For a survivalist, a prepper, someone that got rid of the pink colored glasses or whatever you want to call it, it’s important to understand this:
The mass is stupid.
The individual is smart, the truth is out there if you want to look around, but don’t expect smart reactions from the population in general. Few people even protested when they nationalized the pension funds.
It’s time for me to act like a know it all smartass: A few years ago several hardcore survivalists pretty much laughed when I even “suggested” the possibility of banks being nationalized in USA. I didn’t go nutty end of the world prediction, just said “Hey, happened here maybe could happen to you too. Most people here didn’t see it coming either”
But no, these experts said that if banks and companies were nationalized in USA … drums… it would be the end of the world!
Ah! zombies and raiders would roam the land while survivalists would spend their afternoons headshooting them from the roofs, occasionally scrounging the ruins of the burned down cities for a box of ammo or pack of noodles. I feel like playing Fallout 3 already.
The end of the world is so cool! I want an end of the world theme park just like Disney!
Yet… banks where nationalized, corporations saved, billions stolen from the hardworking taxpayers, and the end of the world?… nope:
More unemployment, more poor, more government control, more crime and the overall quality of life getting worse.
It’s just the same old same, just getting worse little by little.
Fallout 3 videogame and preparing for real, two very different things.
