1 month, 1 week ago by Strawman
It’s great to have a true lawman on the job in times like these. The lawman of whom I speak: Eric Holder. Monday it was announced that pharma giant Johnson and Johnson had agreed to pay $2.2 billion to settle charges that the company had marketed drugs for unapproved uses, while paying kickbacks to doctors and nursing homes who helped them move the product.
The misdeed was labeled FALSE MARKETING. And Holder, donned in his super suit and drinking from a mug filled with “I got you again, Whitey,” summed it up this way:
"Although consultant pharmacists purported to provide 'independent' recommendations based on their clinical judgment, J&J viewed the pharmacists as an 'extension of [J&J's] sales force,'" the Justice Department said. Holder said kickbacks and other incentives could have put the "health of some patients at risk."
So, does this most recent leap towards justice from, of all places, THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT, strike fear in the hearts of those who dwell in Camp Obama? Should Barack, “if you like your plan you can keep it—as long as I like it,” Obama be expecting the other Holder filled wingtip to drop? The President and his minions have bent the truth (like for over 3 years) as it pertains to all the wonders of the Affordable Health Care Act, so why should he be treated any differently than Johnson and Johnson?
The answer is: he shouldn’t be. Obama and his double talking team of spin doctors should be held accountable---but not by the Justice Department. You and I are the ones who have been wronged here. There’s no reason—none at all—for you and I to pay homage to the elected officials who have put us in this mess. They’re the problem—not us. And all the ass-kissing in the world won’t fix the mess we’re in. Instead; some old fashion in your grill verbal assault might get the point across to these ass-clowns that all is not well here in the heartland.
This administration has, in so many ways, indicated that they think we’re a collection of in-bred hicks who can’t wait to gather the family around the flat-screen and binge watch “Duck Dynasty.” But they still want our money. And they still want our vote. To them---that’s all you and I are good for.
So stop looking for an elected official to right the wrongs that have put your family and mine in harm’s way. They don’t exist. Obama owns them.
But he doesn’t own you…….
The Straw that stirs……last week I was taken to task for injecting “race” into the blog by someone who obviously had an extra race card to play. The reason I described those attempting to enter the Obamamall by their skin tones was to point out that this President is color blind; he has no use for any of us. Black, Latina, White, we’re all just revenue sources to Obama---and whoever is pulling his strings. So, save the race baiting for Sharpton, Jackson and Obama. They're professionals and you're not.
