Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog

Public Corruption in Chester County, PA

I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

Are some of the things for profit medical insurance companies do, demonic?

For several decades now I have thought that the basic premise of for profit medical insurance is immoral. And, that some aspects of our so called for profit “health insurance” are demonic. Until now I didn’t say or write the word demonic. That was mostly because of the popular meaning of demonic as expressed in movie theaters.

For profit health insurance companies make money by not providing the service their salesmen say they provide. If you get really sick, expensive sick, you can count on your for profit health insurance company doing everything possible to keep from paying to make you well. It becomes a demonic industry when the companies go so far not to do what they advertise to do, that is pay for your care when you get sick; that they hold off your health care so that you die and they invest the money they promised to use to pay for your care. Insurance executives grow wealthy this way. Your slow and painful death is assured by a bureaucrat typing on a keyboard one thousand miles away so that his boss can profit from your death. That’s demonic, maybe more demonic than anything the Camorra or Mafia has done.

Instead of helping ordinary people Republicans march in lock step with for profit “health” insurance companies. It appears that the GOP grows wealthy in this way.

Demons And Demonization

The usual suspects have been attacking Obama for “demonizing” insurance companies; but saying that people do terrible things isn’t demonization if they do, in fact, do terrible things.
