More Toll Roads to Fix America’s Pension Crisis?

At first read, the #SCS* of this story seems to make sense…

Even though toll roads are almost as ancient as civilization, the idea remains a mixed blessing. Government officials at every level embrace the idea as a win-win. Taxing authorities defray or avoid full-revenue generation to pay for vital transportation needs while they offload much of the administrative cost for transportation. Taxpayers unevenly assume the costs of toll roads because those who pay are only those who use. Seems fair? ▶ NUZZEL

A comprehensive look at the crisis of unfunded pension liabilities and what must be done to avoid the same problem in the future

As the generational bubble of the Baby Boomers begins to retire, it is increasingly evident that governments, corporations, and individuals have failed to adequately prepare for the obligations and needs of this giant cohort. Retirees are outliving actuarial life expectancies, pension liabilities are skyrocketing, pension plans are underfunded, and medical costs rise, the United States alone can expect unfunded liabilities to exceed $4 trillion.

#VarsityBlues (continued)
Like most other stories in the SocialCurrentSee® of our time, public sentiment in this is largely divided in determining what, if any, justice should follow in the pending trials of the elites who are charged by the FBI.

The April 3 Boston court appearance by Loughlin, Giannulli, and others so charged brought some additional notoriety due to the showtime display by some of the defendants. We welcome your comments.

Since the Ides of March, our SocialCurrentSee (scs®) archives have been populated with ample content linked to #VarsityBlues, aka the college admissions scandal. By now, the world knows that actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman headline a list of more than 50 high-profile personalities indicted in the blockbuster FBI undercover sting to expose the scandal.

According to a SOURCE in Boston (where the trial began April 3), Lori Loughlin cleared any trace of her presence on social media after being charged in the scandal. As news emerged of the Full House star’s alleged involvement, the actress decided to delete her Instagram and Twitter, which has been inundated with tweets about the conspiracy. One daughter Olivia Jade is a well known YouTube star and beauty expert. Reports claim that there are actually court documents that show that Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 to get their daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team despite the fact that they don’t participate in crew.

Now, much of the public angst about this case invokes certain sympathy for the deserving students who were blocked from attending these elite schools because of the admissions scam.
