What is Fox News skipping topics?

Published 5:00pm Saturday, November 16, 2013

Have you watched Fox News lately? All they seem to want to talk about is how President Barack Obama misled us. They have gone to the extent of suggesting impeachment.

You would think he said he had inside information that a country had weapons of mass destruction and was about get us in a war that would last for 10 years. We would probably lose more than 4,000 of our young troops and maim for life over 20,000 of our young. And all this for no good reason and that his inside information was wrong.

The facts about Obamacare will eventually come out. All these people who lost their health insurance will find out that the insurance that they had was worthless. They were sold a bill of goods by some slick-talking insurance agent who makes his living selling insurance. I am sure glad I don’t have to go out and buy my health insurance policy. I buy house insurance and car insurance and when I have a claim I have to rely on my insurance agent to tell me what my benefits are. Sometimes I wonder if I am getting the straight information; after all, they do work for the insurance company. How many times have you heard someone say, ‘I wonder if I should hire a lawyer,’ after they file a claim? You have to fight those insurance adjusters tooth and nail to get what you feel you deserve.

If you are under Obamacare this would not be necessary. I was lucky I belonged to a union that protected my health insurance claims before I retired. I would hope that these insurance companies would reimburse the people that they scammed for selling them some worthless piece of goods. I suppose they are protected by that buyer-beware clause.

Why doesn’t Fox News ever talk about how Obamacare got rid of all those policies that were worthless? They won’t talk about this because it would make Obama look good.

Have you noticed the price of gas? Fox News made a big issue out of how much it was when Obama was elected and how it went up to $4 a gallon. Now it is around $3 a gallon and they don’t say a word. Fox News wants to give him blame, but they won’t give him credit.

Also the stock market has almost doubled since he took office. Will you ever hear about this on Fox News? I think not. All you hear is doom and gloom. It is hard to believe that there are far-right people who take what Fox News says seriously. If I were one of these people, I would be ashamed to admit it. Some have so little common sense that they put what they hear on Fox News in the paper. I do my best to educate these people, but there are some people you can’t help. Thanks for taking the time to read some true facts from the most hated person in Albert Lea by those far-right Republicans. I would like to suggest again to watch “The Ed Show” on MSNBC at 4 p.m. daily.
