NOT A HALLOWEEN JOKE--DEAD PEASANT LIFE INSURANCE--YOUR EMPLOYER BETTING ON YOUR LIFE TO GAIN AT YOUR DEATH

 

"Your employer insures your life, without your knowledge, and is betting on your life to benefit them at the time of your death.

Hmmmm....wonder how many work place accidents were truly an accident, or the brakes letting go on your car? How do we really know?

Some companies that do it are Wal-Mart and American Express....so if they do it....I'm sure the list goes on.

CHECK OUT MY STORY.....and I suggest watching Michael Moores movie, is where I learned it first. In Peace, Dandelion

http://www.care2.com/news/member/901507364/1279558

Thanks for viewing, noted, and forward this one....maybe some unexplained deaths may not be so unexplained. Even if no foul play was done, do you really want your employer getting rich off your death?"

----------------------------------

My addition; 

As Michael Moore explains in the movie, insurance laws on us peasants prevent us from taking out insurance policies on our neighbors and co workers. We cannot get fire insurance or life insurance on our bosses, since it would create a conflict of interest, and tempt us to do something illegal in order to profit... So why is this common sense law that applies to us peasants not applying to the huge corporations that do this for all their employees? I am talking about large blue chip companies here... not scammy fly by night fraudsters, which is what I would expect from them...

What makes it worse is that the financial companies that almost brought down the worldwide money system with leveraged ARM loan derivatives, are now doing the same thing with these insurance policies... They are now gambling on your death and selling it on the open market to the highest bidder, worldwide.. They add a leverage factor of forty times, which is their profit.. the same as the Arm Loan Derivative scandal... 

They got bailed out of one huge mess, so now they are creating an even LARGER mess, with taxpayer money. No laws exist for this and it is the WILD WEST... anything goes, same as Arm Loans.. Because it pays such HUGE PROFITS, it is attracting the brightest minds, the smartest people and the biggest scammers who are going to make BILLIONS if not TRILLIONS on this next fraud.. They will sell this to investors who will lose EVERYTHING, just like those who invested in ARM Loan Derivatives.

 

Watch the movie: Capitalism at your local movie theatre now, to learn about this and many other scams that large corporations are doing on your behalf, to try and 'help' you, the loyal peasant employee...

The White House, Washington


Dear Friend, 

Anyone that's watched the news in the past few days knows that health insurance reform is a hot topic — and that rumors and scare tactics have only increased as more people engage with the issue. Given a lot of the outrageous claims floating around, it’s time to make sure everyone knows the facts about the security and stability you get with health insurance reform. 

That’s why we’ve launched a new online resource —WhiteHouse.gov/RealityCheck — to help you separate fact from fiction and share the truth about health insurance reform. Here's a few of the reality check videos you can find on the site: 
There's more information and a number of online tools you can use to spread the truth among your family, friends and other social networks. Take a look: 

Health Insurance Reform Reality Check

We knew going into this effort that accomplishing comprehensive health insurance reform wasn't going to be easy. Achieving real change never is. The entrenched interests that benefit from the status quo always use their influence in Washington to try and keep things just as they are. 

But don't be misled. We know the status quo is unsustainable. If we do nothing, millions more Americans will be denied insurance because of pre-existing conditions, or see their coverage suddenly dropped if they become seriously ill. Out-of-pocket expenses will continue to soar, and more and more families and businesses will be forced to deal with health insurance costs they can’t afford. 

That's the reality. 

Americans deserve better. You deserve a health care system that works as well for you as it does for the status quo; one you can depend on — that won't deny you coverage when you need it most or charge you crippling out-of-pocket co-pays. Health insurance reform means guaranteeing the health care security and stability you deserve. 

President Barack Obama promised he'd bring change to Washington and fix our broken, unsustainable health insurance system. You can help deliver that change.Visit WhiteHouse.gov/RealityCheck, get the facts and spread the truth. The stakes are just too high to do nothing. 

Thank you, 
David 

David Axelrod 
Senior Advisor to the President
