  • “We want the insurance companies to be able to choose the policies they are most comfortable with.”
    Insurance Regulator for the State of Kentucky.

    Man, somebody has been drinking the Kool Aid!

    Folks, I've been concentrating so much on my workouts and my interpretive studies of the Bible that I have sort of let politics slide. Not that I'm not interested, mind you, but there really doesn't seem to be that much we can do about it at the moment. Until we can get folks out there to understand there is no difference between electing a Republican or a Democrat, that both parties are controlled by the people who have the MONEY in this nation, we are going to keep repeating the same old mistakes. (Hillary Clinton for President? Don't even get me started!)

    But when someone in a position of authority makes a comment that is so obviously flawed, I have got to say something. And if you are a fan of the rich, the powerful, or the insurance industry, you may not want to read on.

    The Insurance Industry is the biggest scam in history. They make their money taking bets against something happening to you, then hiring lawyers to make sure they they don't have to pay you when it does. Believe me, it is cheaper for them to hire the attorneys than to pay the claims.

    They are a bunch of con-artists and bookies, plain and simple. Take a look at the wording on any insurance policy, but make sure you have a comprehensive dictionary at your side when you do. These policies are written in the most arcane of legalese possible to ensure they are carefully laced with loopholes for the insurance company.

    Consider the aftermath of Katrina, how many insurance companies in the wake of a devastating national disaster balked and complained that floods were not covered by their policies, so they had no liability to the literally millions of clients who had been paying into their coffers for years. How many other disasters in history have been declared (excuse me while I choke here) “Acts of God” and therefore outside the venue of the policy.

    And this individual, who controls the insurance regulations for an entire state, wants THEM to be comfortable with the policies? Excuse me, exactly whose interests are you looking out for, because it certainly is not the people of the State of Kentucky.

    Who owns an operates Insurance companies? I can assure you it isn't the guy down the street who lives in a million dollar home, or the guy that shows up in a new Jaguar every two years. Believe it or not, those guys are just the pawns in the game. The people who own insurance are so far up the food chain you almost never hear about them. They don't allow their names to be bandied about, they don't appear on the cover of Forbes, and they certainly do not want any more publicity than is absolutely necessary.

    Think about this carefully. Besides the occasional payout for a fender bender or even the loss of an individual home, how much money does the insurance company actually pay out? A fraction, a very very small fraction of what they take in.

    Folks, if we allow the current trend to continue, it will be a very short ride to total government control, and by continuing to elect representatives who are owned and operated by the money, we will have handed them that rope Karl Marx said he would hang the capitalists with.

    Insurance and Wall Street are the problems with the nation and the economy. We need to find men and women who are willing to act to protect the interests of everyone, not just the fat cats with the money. Every time you cast a vote for either of the two party candidates, you are casting a vote for your own enslavement. You are condemning your children, your grandchildren, and the generations to follow to a world where individual achievement and personal initiatives are displaced with government dependency and collective thinking.

    You are giving away everything our ancestors fought and died for.

    I hope you are having a blessed and enlightened day.

    Fred
