Forum Post: Insurance Scam

My Auto Insurance bill is 20% higher than last year. I still have a perfect driving record with no violations or incidents of any kind. I still have the minimum coverage the State of Texas demands. An insurance company representative acknowledged all that but said that the risk in the Texas pool has risen sharply and they have no choice but to raise all premiums.

I suggested that administrative costs are the main force behind the increasingly unbearable cost of living in America. Executive compensation, dividends and stock buy backs are the foremost parasitic activities that are killing the host economy and threatening our well being. He was struggling with an answer, possibly having a difficult time containing anger. I said I knew I was wasting my breath but there it is. "I can't do anything about it." His response that they appreciated my business ... blah, blah, blah ... was as predictable as blaming actuarial costs had been.

What I'm wondering is: Are all insurance companies in every state raising rates similarly? If so I bet none of them say they do it because they want more profit, to more efficiently multiply the Trump tax giveaway. What is your insurance experience this year?

Moses understood the threat of a for profit FIRE sector [He didn't call it that!] 3500 years ago but our masters, who've programmed us to parrot their lies, won't see the truth of their perfidy before they've killed the human race that pays for their extortionist services.

We can fight back! Threaten to communitize the FIRE sector! We can provide all financial services of, by and for the people on a non profit basis.

If we all posted our expenses on our Stalkbook stats list we could compare... 2 peeps per month Basic Cable 1 tv and internet no phn...130 people at work said she got the "white girl price" ( they are not white) ?so whatever that means (can't get it lower) Car ins 140 and 120 minor accident once old cars not fancy Gas 260 and up unless dress in head to toe mountain gear in winter inside and if don't keep steady temp boiler breaks Elec 96 year round why? .. anal about lights Avg groc bill at cheapest store around bare min no packaged foods mostly veggies and some things like laundry soap $160- 180 per week Home ins 140 Cells...120

So if we all made THIS public instead of our favorite band...maybe we could compare to see where we stand...oh maybe former jobs and bosses and if they had personality disorders...yell etc.

yep. It's gotta start somewhere, somehow. If one thing went viral, maybe ordinary people would begin to think.

Insurance costs have shot up. The agent said that they were mainly due to the houses and cars having been flooded and damaged by "the Triple Crown" won by the U.S. in hurricanes. Toilet-sponge-scotch-whiskey says: "hurricanes are NATURAL disasters (definitely Jammed Commie sounding)." "I send you-all my electrifying thoughts and prayers. Revive thyself, Puerto Rico! Viva Maria! Viva Maria!"

Community is the answer!

As a member of this community (USA).

To address this failing society (greed being the disease that is killing us).

The general population has got to band together and demand our government (s) represent the BEST interests of ALL !

In that regard

This is some of my thoughts that I share out on social media directed to various individuals who are in seats of power as well as sharing these thoughts to the general population (my community):

A reply to Tom Perez (he's worried) -

You should be worried!

Yeah the republican office holders are pure poison to the general Public - BUT - the democrats in office are getting more like those toxic republican office holders every year every election cycle.

SO - YEAH = You Should Be Worried!

Who will people (the public) put into office NEXT ? If the differences between pure toxic republicans and the less toxic democrats keeps shrinking?

The DNC really screwed itself when it screwed the PUBLIC by SCREWING Bernie Sanders and his whole campaign platform WHICH WAS FOR THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC and tried to shove another of the Wealthy Few (sHillary Rotten Lip-service Campaign Stealing Clinton) down our throats!

YEAH = You Should Be ABSOLUTELY Worried!

All of You (democrat office holders) SHOULD be banding together to forward Bernie Sanders's whole 2016 campaign - That is of course = WORKING FOR THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE GENERAL POPULATION AND SO THE "WHOLE" OF THE USA !

But for all intents and purposes - it looks like to the general population (and that view of the public's is REAL) THAT the DNC is UNWILLING to band together to stop catering to the wealthy few (and their own pockets) and actually serve the BEST INTERESTS of EVERYONE !

So yeah - you got a lot of work ahead of you that needs to be done RIGHT NOW (not tomorrow or the day after or kick the can further down the road.......) - if you want to win a Growing PUBLIC support!

Insurance Scam

It's all a scam - car home life health . . . etc etc etc . . . insurance

The basic cause of inflation has been, is and always will be the dead weight at the very top of any for profit business be they an owner or the executive management or investors (leaches after initial investment has been repaid) share holders (major share holders - as they are the ones who the company needs to please with ever soaring returns).

Limits need to be placed to stop run away inflation caused by the need for increased profits to put in the pockets of the very few who do nothing to deserve the increases or any profit from the business what so ever!

What the politicians give us are tax cuts for the leaches which further delimit them.

They have been increasingly catering to them for over the last 40 years.

Pick one abuse and hope it goes viral.

There IS the ONE source of ALL the abuse perpetrated on the general population by the wealthy few and those in office who cater to them = GREED!

There IS the ONE source of ALL the abuse

While greed is the general source, I think we should start to erode the systemic abuse by a coordinated attack on some specific target. I suggested insurers' lies.

a coordinated attack on some specific target

Insurance is as good a place to start as anywhere/anything else (what is wrong in this for profit business is akin to what is wrong in "ALL" for profit business's) .

The ACA needs fixing/improvement and insurance provider's as well as care provider's are very much in need of reform/change!

In ALL it's a matter of follow the money = where is it going? Into care? Or into the pockets of the wealthy few who are the tapeworms in all business's (for profit as well as nonprofit).

Healthcare provision is target 2 for me. At least it's a useful service that's not intrinsically parasitic like the FIRE sector, which includes healthcare insurance and administration.

Oh - but it is! CorpoRAT Health Services = understaffed underpaid & working toxic amounts of overtime to get the most profit out for the executive staff and shareholders. Patients charged an arm and a leg for services where insurance might not cover one single penny of the stay or the procedure(s). Just sayin - do they really need to charge $1,000.00 or more per day ($1,000.00 is super cheap and unheard of) just for a bed?

key word: "intrinsically" the corporate conditions are extrinsic to the provision of medicine. I said that administration can be thrown in the FIRE. And putting out the FIRE remains the top priority. It is deserving of all our attention at this time. Spread the word. Cross post this thread and hope it goes viral.
