Ohhh Boy! ObamaCare!

Well, the alleged Health Care Reform Bill has passed the House and the self-congratulatory hoopla has begun. The lobbyists have worked long hours, and spent million$ on their minions as usual. So, Big Pharma, Big Med, and Big Insurance get more billion$ of our tax money and We the People get tossed a peanut or two to keep us happy.

Meanwhile, Big Pharma continues off-label drug sales, despite fines and judgments against them, and Big Chem/Big Ag continue to put poisons on our crops and into our ground water on a global scale.

Now that the Supremes have given big corporations the “right” to spend as much as they want to “convince” legislators to do their bidding, I fear it will be a cold day in Hell before We the People get any actual legislation in our interest. Apparently every bill that is proposed is gone over with a fine tooth comb by lobbyists and special interests to make sure nothing interferes with profits or control. After those vital corrections have been made, then the Oligarchy allows a vote and, through the magic of money, makes sure the vote is “correct.”

“It can’t happen here,” you say? Too late, it happened years ago, but they kept it under the table in those days. Now, they can lay it on the table in full view and it is just a corporation, masquerading as a “person,” exercising his “civil rights.”

As was said in Orwell’s Animal Farm, “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.” Those with the big bankrolls are the ones that are “more equal.” The rest of us are just "equal."

"Cheer up," he said, "things could be worse!" So I cheered up and sure enough, things got worse.
