There sure is a hyper-buzz on the airwaves about "health care" in this country. Is this just part of the monetary crisis that is presently afflicting the advanced centers of finance world wide or is this a genuine humanitarian concern for the welfare of the miserable denizens of this god forsaken wasteland of post industrial america. I think it is without doubt the former as now, in the midst of the catastrophic collapse of our economic and social order, the major players are now demanding that we citoyens be required to purchase "insurance" to ensure...what exactly? And as the answer to this question we pose another significant and time worn question "cui bono?", who benefits? As always and of course the next requisite step is to "follow the money". Evidently the insitiutional hegemons of the ill health marketplace are feeling the corrosive currents of the economic meltdown inexorably nibbling away at their sacrosanct profit margins. American drones have become accustomed to, as their inalienable rights, (somewhere in the near distant past as I recall these as being "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness") the access to affordable ill health management as in the days of yore. This happy arrangement is about to be severely curtailed if not eliminated entirely. The mass confusa anticipates this eventuation with the unerring instinct of so many panic stricken animals driven avant garde before a wind swept forest fire. Witness the spectacle of the so-called town hall meetings replete with hysterical play acting, insolent gun toting and impotent outrage in the face of inexorable self defeatism and destruction. As with so many other of our steadily disappearing inalienable rights, the inevitable removal of the same will be subject to an ongoing surcharge payable in a stealth tax much like the inflation and hyperinflation just around the bend. Thus a heretofore vast resource will thus be tapped and exploited by the insurance rapists, the big Pharma poisoners and that organization of world class assassins for hire, the American Medical Association. This onerous and unneccesary levy will be added to the already overburdened and exploited ranks of the "uninsured" workers, unemployed and underemployed. Imagine the billions of dollars windfall of 145 million+ individuals forced by government mandate to cough up fees and fines just to gain admission to an already systemically dysfunctional unworkable and yes, LETHAL iatrogenic mass malady which poses as"health care" in the US of A. After all it behooves us to remember that 150,000 to 200,000 medically generated iatrogenic fatalities occur annually in the United States. Despite all the disingenuous opprobrium being heaped on the insurance malefactors by the hypocrites in the Democratic party leadership, it was not surprising nor without reason that after the fustian bullshit exercise of Obama's health care address this past week, the equities of the major insurance companies all posted significant gains. Time for some payback for those millions of dollars of campaign contributions I suppose.
As with so many other programs. agendas, and proposals for the remediation of human ills advanced by governmental and social institutions, the absolute inconceivable ludicrousness of this particular program is made even more painful by the serious acceptance with which it is accorded. Most laughable in this regard is the comparison to compulsory automobile insurance which is being bandied about by the political spin doctors and various media whores as a justification for this lamentably transparent shell game. Evidently, your sorry broken ass has been granted the status of a regretably underperforming commodity freighted with unacceptable levels of risk and indemnity by the same Wall Street hucksters whose latest scheme is to buy up, bundle and securitize as much of the multi-trillion dollar pool of "life" insurance policies as they can manage from your fellow stiffs-to-be much like they did with home mortgages. As a market of last resort, these revenants from the dark side have pulled out all the stops in their headlong plunge into the abyss of their appalling and insensate greed. Having exhausted the last possible avenues of their desparate and rapacious financial exploitation and bereft of any other opportunity for satisfaction, these predators have descended like so many vultures into the realms of suffering and death and the crypt itself to extract from human flesh the last vestiges of the filth of lucre.
