A Synopsis, for ‘Social Security, Immaculate Deception’— A National Disgrace
Four old codgers are sick and tired of the abuse and neglect which occurs, daily in their old-folks-home. Max has a broken leg for getting involved, as he tried to help his buddy Thomas; with his bed pan. Unfortunately, Thomas is now in the intensive care unit at the county hospital. He is in a coma. Another resident, Marge Taylor; has been repeatedly beaten, and raped, and hasn’t spoken a word, since her tragic ordeal started. She was too afraid to report her cruel and inhumane treatment.
Loss of morale dictates, as anxiety and pessimism have set in to say the least; thanks to the agony and shame that has been inflicted upon them by the so called system. Eventually, the shit hits the fan in protest and arrest. The press is having a field day, the old folks are demonstrating and the Four Amigos; Clarence, Max, Sarge, and Henry, are playing cards; conspiring to overthrow the system and make change by taking matters into their own hands, as they vow to conquer Hell, — — Prudent-Paradise.
They actually hire a lawyer, Chi, Clarence’s grandson who sues the state as well as the owners of Hell. The residents go wild with the idea and unite as they pool their resources and purchase Prudent Paradise, in the Name of Love. They change its name to ‘Social Security ‘ and become one big family; with a bar, pool, hot tubs, pets, the O-zone, and a Laugh Room. They learn to live and enjoy life again as sex is on their minds.
Clarence and his Amigos have their hands full. Sometimes he wonders if they, bit off more than they can chew. He falls in Love which seems to be contagious. Unfortunately, life is dangerous. Together, they continue to address uncertainty as they confront destiny; in spite of its ups and downs. Their goal is to make change; before it’s too late and out of control. Thus, they devise a plan to challenge the troubles that are plaguing America today; which most citizens choose, to ignore as the ‘Elite Powers That Be’; herds us like cattle into organized chaos.
This Novel is a little obscene, dramatic, provocative, and educational through a historical review, including several unnerving National Disgraces which have infected the world; but were covered up in the Name of National Security. On a lighter note, it is also funny as well as bitter-sweet and a bit violent but then again, that’s Life. For as Mark Twain proclaimed:
“Man is the only animal that blushes, the only one that needs to.”
Hence, you will laugh and you will cry, but my aim is to STIMULATE your brain, connect the dots; so to speak and make you think. This is but a Wake-up Call. Frankly, the system itself is consuming the consumers. We are becoming slaves economically as our Individual Rights & Freedoms are cannibalized from within by our own government; an Immaculate Deception
Unfortunately, Americans have lost their faith in our government as well as our system of justice and the rule of law? Wake up my fellow Americans; it is time to support and defend the U.S. Constitution! United, it is time we implement the system of ‘Checks and Balances’; which were designed by our founding fathers as they established a ‘Separation of Powers’, on purpose.
Ultimately, the ‘Power’, was designed to be shared between our three branches of government and each branch has the right and the duty to challenge the actions of the others; a safe guard to prevent excessive power grabs by either the judicial, legislative or executive branch of our government. Ironically, our forefather’s greatest fears are coming true? Why? Because — — ‘We the People’, have fallen asleep. We have forgotten about the ‘Power of the People’; our Duty, to Question Authority and Demand Answers. We should not fear our government; they should fear us, We the People!
Alas, God help us if we laugh now and cry later. Especially since Life is a matter of Good verses evil. Ironically, Truth is akin to Cool, as both are Repulsive to the ‘Un’.

“Four old crotchety “old coots” that still have something to offer: Clarence, Max, Henry and Serge, are tired of feeling like “inmates” in their senior citizen home, “Prudent Paradise,” but they call hell and decide to change things, including the name. Social Security is their new home and their motto is “I intend to enjoy my twilight years,” and, boy do they…with a bar, co-ed rooms, and every freedom they can think of, especially freedom of speech. Crotchety is “an adjective used to describe an ole person” who is in their “golden years” and hate it and life but also seem to think that they have more to say and others need to listen. These four have much more to say and Social Security becomes their platform. “Social Security” is the stage for these old men to vent and rant about all sorts of topics, such as capitalism defeating communism, prescription drug manufacturing being a highly lucrative business with almost no competition, 9–11, Enron, and the mark of the beast (666) vs implants. Within their speeches to each other and others are “gems,” little nuggets of truth, such as: “man used the Word of God as both a source of Pleasure and Peace and as a tenant of Fear and Damnation,” or “Evil is but wrong living as it is “live,” spelled backwards,” also “Ironically, the churches promote bingo, while the states are obsessed with more and more lottery revenue, not to mention taxes,” and finally, “Fear is life’s greatest mystery while Faith is its greatest secret…Fear is inferior to Faith as it is nothing more than a lack of Faith.” Among these “mini-articulations” the men, who show they are all still functioning, well-thinking older gentleman, quote some famous characters like: T.S.Eliot, Chief Justice Burger, Gandhi, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Kahlil Gibran, and James Madison, too name a few. “Social Security” is a well-written book that includes social commentary mixed with love, death, romance, crime, drama and freedom for senior citizens to live the way they want too. Robert J. Karpie has a writing style that hooks the reader. I read “Social Security” in one setting as it grabs the reader from the beginning as you find yourself rooting for the four “old coots” and their dreams. The author’s view into the world of the geriatric mind-set is outstanding. I highly recommend “Social Security.””
