Hey, I told you so....

Further proof that I’m right…

President Obama, after an uproar by veterans groups, has scrapped a plan to require private insurance carriers to reimburse the Department of Veterans Affairs for the treatment of troops injured in service.

"In considering the third-party billing issue, the administration was seeking to maximize the resources available for veterans," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Wednesday in a written statement. "However, the president listened to concerns raised by the [veteran service organizations] that this might, under certain circumstances, affect veterans' and their families' ability to access health care. Therefore, the president has instructed that its consideration be dropped," Gibbs said.

More like, “Oh man, we’re bankrupting the country to pay for pork and bullshit and figured we’d defray the costs by screwing over those babykillers and war-mongerers who kill our socialist allies and other repressed peoples, and we got called out on it.”

I’d like to think that the administration folded after my withering, blistering assault the other day. Remember, this blog is read by powerful people the world over searching for wisdom and guidance under my tutelage.

Or not.

You're "more like" paragraph is dead on. Obama keeps trying to shaft everyone, and backpedals when the outrage gets too hot.

I don't think Obama himself is trying to shaft anyone; I think it's the BANKERS who are giving an enormous shaft to the entire world, and Obama is just being sucked along as their latest puppet, drawing attention away from the myriad of other ways they're stealing from everybody, probably without his even realizing what a TOOL he really is. (Of course the same would have happened to McCain as well, it's just that everybody expected McCain to be a copy of Bush.)

I think Obama probably had the best of intentions when he took office, but he's not a financial wizard. He has financial wizards on his staff, and because he's not a world-class expert when it comes to the national or world-wide economy, he presumably follows their advice. The problem with this is that most of his financial advisers are people who are experienced in the financial sector, which means they have long since sold their souls to the banking cartel.

And yes, I use the word "cartel" exactly as it sounds. The primary goal of the people at the top of the banking industry is to OWN the entire world, one country and/or one person at a time. There's a lot of truth the statement that money is the root of all evil.

It's interesting to imagine what things would be like if Ron Paul had been elected. Imagine a president who actually understands enough economics to see where the problem truly lies, without having to rely on a bunch of sycophantic toadies who work more for the bankers than for "We The People", because the bankers pay better. (And you could pay better as well, if you could just print your own money whenever you wanted it...)
