2] Satire - A literary work in which human vice or folly is attacked through irony, derision, or wit.
First I lied. The McCain post will be next. Any who, I know that most of us are mad as hell at these big oil companies taking all our loot and grossing big profits while at the same time they getting they corporate welfare on (Slappz I know you will disagree). And yes they are a great evil, but the greatest evil if you asked me (which u aint) are insurance companies. And they seem to be of late, at least since Hurricane Katrina, putting it down.
Insurance is an easy business, all they live to do is collect premiums and try they best to keep from paying out claims. With the help of the GOP, Lobbyist and judges that unlike days of old, got money invested in all kinds of stuff, they may be making civil claims and law suites for the regular man a thing of the past.
Now it is very possible that I am wrong, but times seem to have changed for the worse. After the oral argument in the Exxon Valdez case, I realized that Judges aint judges anymore and making loot is the trump card, since Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. had to rescue himself from hearing the case cause he owned stock in Exxon. And then after the U.S. Supreme Court had a divided vote regarding the decision on Warner-Lambert Co. v. Kent, because making money for many of these judges, even on the local level is more important than administering justice. I mean they couldn’t even hear a class-action lawsuit that accuses more than 50
Now the aforementioned is problematic, but what has put the icing on the cake for me is how I have Notice the company Logo for State Farm on almost every baseball field in the majors, and even during the college world series. I was used to seeing their commercials on TV, but since Katrina, seems like they have taken a scorch and burn approach. Maybe it was due to State Farm Fire & Casualty Co. being charged with a "pattern of racketeering" as a result of them manipulating engineering reports after Hurricane Katrina so they could deny policyholder claims. Since then, goo-gobs of homeowners have sued their insurers for denying their claims after the Aug. 29, 2005, storm. It was the first time an insurer was charged with violating the civil Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organization Act, commonly known as RICO.
Since then, State farm has been on a roll, trying to get politicians, including McCain and Obama, to limit and squash the ability of folks to file civil laws suits, with due process in front of a jury. State Farm has historically spent a lot on this, but they have steeped their game up as of late. State Farm has spent has hired the Fowler White Boggs Banker firm to lobby on its behalf. Like I said, State Farm has been pushing for changes in
So true, the Oil companies are not folks I like too look up to, I mean Im down wit making loot, but not via extortion. But at least they have a commodity that we demand. We don’t even need insurance, it’s a fabrication anyway and when we need it, they fight us tooth and nail to collect. Maybe this is much to do about nothing, I mean they are the biggest crooks next to politicians to me, but at the rate that judges are recusing themselves, they may just want to give all judges stock in their company and they won’t have to worry about law suites at all.
