Profiteering middlemen inserted into Florida Medicaid by Gov. Scott

Paul Krugman column indicates Gov. Rick Scott has made a Republican coup against Obamacare, taking the most efficient healthcare in the USA (that is, Medicare/Medicaid) and put the middleman right into it to scoop off the profits -- as if Obamacare never happened.

Business as usual for the Florida profiteers -- eager to prey on the sick and make profit off human misery.

BOYCOTT: How much does Warren Buffett stand make off the Keystone Pipeline?

The pieces are coming together and I smell Crony capitalism.

Why Hasn't President Obama Pardoned Former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman?

March 4, 2013

Last Friday, President Barack Obama pardoned 17 convicted felons.

One name that wasn't on the list of pardoned felons was Don Siegelman.

Siegelman, a popular Democratic governor of Alabama, a Republican state, was framed in a crooked trial, convicted on June 29, 2006, and sent to federal prison by the corrupt and immoral Bush Administration.

Inspection- Fixing the Voting Rights Act

Despite the very unfortunate fact 5 of the Supremes are being served, on yet another silver platter, a way to help their political friends skew elections...
 And despite the high probability that, if I'm reading the main partisan intent of the majority of the Court right these days, they will take that silver platter and serve up to states with the worst records the right to violate voting rights...
 Despite all this, their friends and conspirators on the Right who hate The Voting Rights Act have two, partially valid, points here. Yes...

German Bank Fraud in the U.S. Treasury

I think this indicates some illegal banking beyond the scope of what we have gotten a grip on thus far.

In the House Notes of the 65th Congress published 1919, is a list of 1918 corporate changes of title for the German American Banks nationwide. Some of these became Lincoln National Banks, as we know, some became Liberty National (Harriman) banks, some Citizens, and some American National, with a rare First National.

Corporatization: Obama appointments couldn’t give a rats patoot for the People or Environment.

First of all yes, Oblah blah appointed a lady from Wall Mart’s tax evasion Foundation to lead his budgeting (and being from Wal Mart world, I’m sure her choices will put a priority on the needs of the peasants).

And then there is the Environmental Antichrist Ernie Moniz:

TransOcean Stock looking up$$$ after the People fail to get justice in the Courts.

It is one of many ways Obama is transferring wealth (in all its forms) from the People to Corporations.

Crony Capitalism: Warren Buffet directly benefiting from Obama’s Dirty Energy boom.

Warren Buffet is a parasite on the American condition. And if Warren buffet benefits, you can bet so does Goldman Sachs.*
