Raising The Social Security Age

Social Security Age Increasing

Every year we hear the same news… people are living longer. These “studies” say the average expectancy now is 72 years old. Me, personally, know a lot more people who have died at a younger age than actually living until 72+. In fact, a just heard a friend of mine say her Mom died in her sleep just a few days ago. She was 54. Yesterday (3/5/13) we got the news one of the biggest managers in wrestling’s history (WWE) died and he was 58. His WIKI page is here. I honestly don’t believe the hype coming out of these “studies”. The realty is that everything you hear on the news/media, government, or these “age studies” needs to really be analyzed.

Social Security Administration Police Force

As budgets get tighter and more and more people are watching where the spending is coming from, The Social Security Administration disclosed that they recently purchased 174,000 hollow-point bullets for ammunition needs.  It turns out the Social Security Administration trains and has a force of 295 agents (armed) who investigate Social Security fraud and other crimes.  These agents execute warrants and make arrests across the country (who knew?).  These agents carry .357 caliber pistols! Internet bloggers are surely talking about this new revelation.  In particular the type of ammo and how it causes much more damage as compared to other ammunition options available.

So… what’s the point of having the police for these issues then?  I guess this makes the Social Security Administration their own judge and jury of who should be arrested and have their house ripped apart at night.  While investigating this news I ran across the another agency, NOAA’s Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement who recently are taking bids to purchased 46,000 rounds of ammunition and shooting targets.

I say let the police do their jobs and serve warrants properly.  We don’t need these “agencies” making per-decisions of who they believe is guilty and should be taken down.  Another example of wasted spending and resources.
