Washington Brief

“The health of a people is really the foundation upon which all their happiness and all their powers as a state depend.”
Benjamin Disraeli

Social Security Smokescreen

Washington, DC. Mar. 9th, 2005 ---- Whenever George Bush becomes passionate on something it's time to ask what is he worried about us finding out, and where did his paymasters screw up?

Never in the history of America have so few fooled so many, and made so much money out of it for themselves.

Bush knows the healthcare issue is going to be front and center in the upcoming election campaigns and he knows his Robber Baron backers are making a killing on the failing health of the US population. Obesity is not a result of eating good food, and drinking healthy drinks. It is a result of big business pumping highly profitable junk food down the throats of weak willed school kids. They grow up into weak willed adults who believe everything they are told.

But don't worry the even more profitable Healthcare and Pharmaceutical industries will provide a test, a pill and a scare to carry on the fleecing of America.

George Bush talks about "Courage and Honesty" and that his hidden agendas are above "Partisan Politics." He should have been awarded the Oscar for Best Actor! The whole Comedy of Errors surrounding Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction and his buddy Bin Laden has now been swept under the carpet to convince the masses that the Administration is worried about healthcare. It is not. It sees the investment in a Republican America drying up as the world turns it's back on the greed of big business and the Bush Administration. They need the flow of investment funds to come from somewhere, and the American middle class don't have any money to spare.

But nobody is asking about why the fund is short of money?

The fund is short of money because Bush "borrowed" everything he could get his hands on to grab the Oil in Iraq. Had he had "Courage and Honesty" he would have laid out the true costs before he launched the invasion and occupation. The resulting Oil profits boom has truly paid back his backers, and further screwed the poor Bastards who kept him in power.

But daily more and more workers lose their jobs, and at the same time the Bush Backers report huge windfall profits.

So the obvious ploy is to persuade the poor party faithful on the election trail they should buy into this wealth creating machine and invest in the Stock Exchange, approved companies of course. No left wing liberal companies who look after their workers, just high profit global companies who don't pay taxes. The young will not ask about how much of these profits actually get paid back to the stockholders, and how much goes into political and lobbying coffers, and the deep pockets of industry leaders.

It took nearly 50 years for the world to realize President Johnson lied about the Gulf of Tonkin Incident to escalate the Vietnam War. His backers made Billions. He did the right thing and refused to stand for reelection. President Bush has turned lying to the American public to an Olympic sport, and one wonders what is behind his sudden interest in Social Security and Medicare. Could it be to protect the profits of big business suppliers of pharmaceuticals and healthcare?
