Remember Fred Thompson and his Little Red Pickup?

The one that he had somebody deliver to a short driving distance from his rallies, so he could pretend to be “jes plain folks”?
He’s doing Bankster Commercials. Yep. Working for an investment group, who are hawking a “reverse mortgage”. While being a Republican and therefore supporting their loud cries for the Government to cut off any loan guarantees, he smoothly lies to the people and says it’s a Government Backed Guarantee. What a hypocrite.
Fits right in. If I had any doubts of whether the now-privatized program is unsound, that settled the doubt.
Why it sounded fishy before, first, it’s not really backed by any actual cash. And it was always administered through the private investment bankers. Like AIG who had to be bailed out because they’re just such wonderful stewards of other peoples money.
Then there’s the idea that while their customers are walking over the grass, and the grass ain’t walkin’ over them, they can’t be evicted. The ones whose Social Security and Health Care are on the chopping block, in a charge led by… the banksters and their new spokesfreak.
Gentle Readers, if you’re already invested in this, whenever the Banker comes around to visit, don’t eat or drink any gifts he brings.
