Zombies are “living dead” who are reanimated by eating the brains of the living–they’re the old feeding on the young.
Pensioner financial zombies in Pittsburgh and elsewhere are set to feed on starving students’ finances:
The mayor of Pittsburgh calls it the “Fair Share Tax.” But to officials at the city’s 10 colleges and universities and many of their 100,000 students, it is anything but.
On Wednesday, the City Council is expected to give preliminary approval to Mayor Luke Ravenstahl’s proposal for a 1 percent tuition tax on students attending college in Pittsburgh, which he says will raise $16.2 million in annual revenue that is needed to pay pensions for retired city employees.
The tax would be the first of its kind in the nation, and other cities are watching closely as they try to find ways to close their own budget gaps. (Source)
One hell of a revolt is coming. I don’t know when, but robbing the have nots to pay the haves cannot last forever. . . . It is so obvious that the next 30 years will pit younger, pension-less workers against a rapidly aging population, eager for their promised pensions. To assuage labor and other disputes promises were made that can never be kept. Until the younger generation votes with the regularity and consistency of their elders, the folks with the pensions will get paid and the youngsters will pay the price. (Source)
As President Regan was fond of saying, “if you want less of something, tax it.” Why should old folks on pensions care about educated young people anyway? Lol! Just feed on ’em. Mmmmmmm, good!
Note: According to Wikipedia, “modern zombies are depicted in mobs, flocks or waves, seeking either flesh to eat or people to kill, and are typically rendered to exhibit signs of physical decomposition such as rotting flesh, discolored eyes, and open wounds, and moving with a slow, shambling gait. They are generally incapable of communication and show no signs of personality or rationality.”
