Video: Even Funerals Are a Giant Financial Scam in America

Top Tier Gear USA


Americans don’t realize how much we get ripped off on practically everything in this country. That’s why people were rejoicing so hard when big pharma dbag Martin Shkreli was arrested. He bought up the patent for a drug that costs about $13.50 a pill (that people pay about a nickel for in, say, India) and started charging $750 bucks for it, a sum which people who take that drug were forced to pay or die, something he can legally do in this country.

But practically everything is an unnecessary rip off here. We are being forced onto Obamacare, or we have to pay something called the “individual shared responsibility payment,” a penalty fee that will rise to 2.5% of our annual income in 2016, even if we don’t ever go to the doctor so our shared responsibility should be… what?

We have to pay more for Organic food, or food that we can be assured hasn’t been genetically tampered with and grown soaked in multiple types of deadly, carcinogenic pesticides (pesticides being chemicals that kill things).

The average American wedding, the happy day to celebrate a couple coming together for what is supposed to be about love before their friends and family, runs an insane $30,000 on average here now. Maybe this is part of why marriage rates are continuing to drop.

Well, most people end up with a car loan, a student, loan and a bunch of credit cards before they ever get to walk down the aisle, then of course there’s that hard-to-afford, diamond engagement ring (another giant scam) which guys end up spending an average of $4,000 on, too… Gee, no wonder people aren’t buying houses anymore.

Who can afford this ridiculously high-priced lifestyle being billed as “The American Dream”? More like The American SCAM.

Turns out, even in DEATH, Americans are getting ripped off, and the lies about this one go back to at least the days of Abraham Lincoln!

Yep, the average funeral costs about $10,000 in this country, and everything about it, from embalming being “necessary” to have an open casket (lie) to the price of the casket itself (one of the most expensive pieces of furniture most people will buy their entire lives), is misleading to cash in on the last chance to cash in (and at a time when the family is particularly vulnerable and will not know any better and pretty much signs a blank check without too much consideration for the fine print).

Adam Ruins Everything has pointed out how big of a scam American funerals are, right down to the fact that a megacorporation has bought up a majority of the local mom and pop funeral shops but maintained the family business name on the front door, so people never know their loved one is being buried by said megacorporation whose treasurer was quoted as saying, “We really are a cash cow.”

Makes sense. We get ripped off our entire lives, America. Why not get one last ridiculous pay day from our grieving families as we’re headed out the door?

    This whole nation is nothing but one gigantic scam.
    Money has soiled every atom of our existence. The phony “American dream” has ceased to exist decades ago. But hey, We’re in RECOVERY! There is no RECESSION! (and the check is in the mail)…

  • doucyet

    People allow themselves to become victims of these income vacuums.

    My wife I married for less than 1,000 bucks 20 years ago……..happy as can be!

    When I pass on………….the whole thing will cost less than 1,000 bucks (unless I just wonder off into the forest in which case it will be free.)

    Small home, very comfortable! Paid for years before I retire……….

    Stop playing their game folks……………

    • My only debt is my house and I am working on passive income to cover that bill, I don’t fall for any of this crap.


    One notch above farm animals.

    My Grandmother’s pre-paid cremation company told us since she was over 100 yo they could not take the body. It has been resolved because we raised hell, but I’m certain they were looking to suck more money out of her. They didn’t get it. The shlongers got schlonged! NEVER get sucked into a funeral.

    when I die, I’m being fed to the dogs, then my family can make xmas tree ornaments out of my bones

  • Truman Golden

    lets blame all american failures on Muslims.

    • Nabi

      The you need to blame the Democrat NeoComs.

    • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

      Troll bait alert….

      • joetentpeg

        You mean ‘Christophobe’ alert.

      • Truman Golden

        LOL, how is that a bait you tool? FOX news does.

        • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

          Since I don’t watch Fox, I wouldn’t know-and don’t care to.

  • A pine box(or not) and a hole in the dirt is fine with me and they can bury me naked and face down so the whole world can kiss my ass!

  • sunshine

    Shiiiiit….just set my corpse on fire, like who cares? My surviving family members can carry small amounts of my ashes around and talk to me like I’m still there. That would be awesome.

  • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

    I will be cremated and my wish is for my ashes to be spread upon the land where I have hunted deer most of my life. Oh yeah-and my copy of the death certificate which will go to the local governing authority should read-“I’m dead-Now go fuck yourself”.

    • I like it!

      • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

        It’s very heartfelt!

    • AllodialTitle

      I’ve read that the death certificate is the closing of Escrow on the Birth Certificate Bond . It will still be a securities instrument on the world market.
      I do like your attitude toward the local governing ‘authority’


    This is why I chose cremation, no funeral service, and UPS delivery of my ashes in a cheap box to be dumped in my backyard. Cost: about $800.00 which is still a lot though.

  • lilred

    Toss my body off a boat and feed me to the fishes. The ultimate recycling.

  • emmanuelozon

    I have a tattoo on my hip that reads “If found deceased, please call 1.888.***.****.” The 888 number being the number for one of the regions medical schools, who will then come and gather this dead carcass, take it back to their laboratory and perform despicable acts on it all in the name of science.
