Squishy financial plans

Fakebook has been blocking some “interesting” content on its site, like:

The Declaration of Independence for… “hate speech”.

And…

An objective-styled video about various forms of government on the grounds that it allegedly contains “violent” or “graphic” content (It doesn’t).

The site is becoming more irrelevant by the day and you know what?

I say good for them.

Private companies have a right to do whatever they want with their business. Everyone who signs up for Facebook agrees to terms and conditions which are — themselves — quite nebulous and “squishy.”

In other words, when you sign up to Fakebook, you’re agreeing to terms and conditions which can be changed at any time and for any reason.

And if you put a lot of sensitive information on the site, you are agreeing to put it there under the understanding that the terms and conditions under which you did so can (and probably will) eventually change.

What’s the point of all this?

Well, you have a great many choices ahead of you when you’ve decided to save money for your future.

You can choose to do business with companies that guarantee everything you save… guarantee nothing, or… guarantee something (but not everything).

Likewise, you can do business with companies that guarantee contract terms in black and white or… you can do bid’naz with companies that have terms and conditions which are inherently “fluid” and constantly changing.

How do you choose which way to go?

You do some kind of objective analysis based on your goals, needs, wants, and values.

If I had to guess, I’d say most people probably don’t want a “squishy” financial plan which can be changed on them at any time without prior notice… nor do they want their goals pushed back by open-ended terms and conditions. Then again, some people don’t mind that sort of thing.

Anywho, if you want a non-squishy financial plan, then go read my life insurance buyer’s guide, here:
