Mr. Goody Two Shoes
Since, Black History Month is almost winding down. I’d like to share some of Goody Two Shoes—Rick Santorum’s history. Mr. Goody Two Shoes likes for folks to think that he is an upright Christian. Well…he is upright, alright, upright on the top of the list of America’s three most corrupt Senators list.
Santorum maneuvered millions of dollars in earmarks to clients of American Continental Group, a lobbying firm. In return they donated $14,000 to him. After he left office, he received from them $65,000 for legislative policy consulting services. In 2010 and 2011 collected $142,500 from Consol Energy.
Universal Health Service in Puerto Rico paid Rick a handsome amount or $395,000 after he left the Senate and he was appointed to that companies’ Board of Directors. While Mr. Goody Two Shoes was in the Senate he pressed for precise laws to increase Medicare payments in Puerto Rico. Did I mention that Universal Health Service was sued for Medicare fraud, which was settled out of court along with certifications suspended or cancelled at several of the facilities?
When Santorum took his position in the Senate, he was not wealthy. However, in 2007, he brought a 5000 square feet house on 5 acres of land and paid $2,000,000 in Great Falls, VA. Not to mention, he accumulated 5 rental houses. But he’s rich now. Thanks to favors he extended to those who rewarded him financially while he was in the Senate. He brought all these properties after becoming a Senator.
Billions were handed out in earmarks to special interest. He put 54 earmarks worth $154 million in the Defense appropriation bill that went to special interests and in return they donated over $200,000 to his campaign in 2006.
It must be the money!
Mr. Goody Two Shoes had a few issues with those in his own party as well that I’m sure they haven’t forgotten. He leads the call to get rid of them if they don't vote the way he wants them too is what it sounds like. He has a duplicitous personality and is as crooked as that crooked road in San Francisco. The Catholic Church needs to give him his own personalized confessional booth at the Catholic Church with a 24 hr priest on duty because I'm sure by now he utilizes that booth quite often.
He does not mind ripping off those who serve our country either. No sirree bop! Apparently, he suffers from that "Blah Welfare Queen Myth" mentality and lets us know that he would President to of "ALL" people. He made it plain that he does not want to help us "Blah" people" by giving us none of other people's money. I hate to be the one to tell him, but part of that money that he has in the past conveniently handed out so generously to those special interests folks happens to be some of us "Blah Peoples" tax money too.
Us Blah people were never expecting anything from you Rick, nor were any poor or middleclass folks of any other color for that fact. We know you down with those special interest folks.
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
