Duck! and Gather

Archive for October 2009

I was listening to an NPR piece on the health care debates. The program mentioned the oft-repeated notion that any health care bill that reaches Obama’s desk must not increase the nation’s deficit. Then it hit me.

Remember the bank bailouts last year? Bush started them. Obama continued them. What was that about?

It was about the “health” of our bank Corporations. The idea was to make these Corporations healthy again. You know, stave off Corporate death (i.e. bankruptcy).

Sure seems like it worked for Citibank and Goldman Sachs. But, of course, those bailouts drove up the nation’s deficit into the trillions.

Now fast forward to this summer. This summer we are not talking about the health of the bank Corporations. Instead, we are talking about the health of We the People.

Improving the health of the bank Corporations, Our Government was only happy to take Our deficit beyond imagination. But when it comes to Our health, Our Government offers not even a single, bloody farthing.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present your 2009 Government. Who do they serve?

Res ipsa loquitur.


for the money has gone too far
