Hook, Line, and Sinker

07 Aug

The idiomatic phrase ‘to swallow something “hook, line and sinker” ‘ has been taken to a level of deception that can only be described as flawless by Mitt Romney.  Please allow me to explain.  The “hook”: Mitt and his Republican political cronies convince the public that his political opposition is “not one of us,” “a stranger,” “not an American,” and “he was not born here.”  Donald Trump was exceptional in convincing gullible Americans of this.  The “Line”: Just as he did at Bain Capitol, Mitt convinced the workers that “All will be well.”  He throws in numerous additional lines.  Such as, informing employees that vacation and sick days will be increased; that good faith bargaining will be the cornerstone of his company policy; and that his business experience is far superior, and his leadership is needed to make the company viable again.  The “sinker”: While providing these words of comfort, Mitt and his coconspirators raid the employee pension, life insurance premiums, and medical insurance fund of all its assets. Mitt assumes sponsorship of the employee 401(k) plan, taking the employer contributions retroactively, which includes the employee-vested amounts.  Under the cover of nights or weekends, Mitt brings equipment wholesale buyers in the company buildings at night – Selling all the equipment, tools, stock, and anything else of value. Using the leverage of the flourishing company’s name, Mitt and his confederates borrows the maximum from an unsuspecting bank or loan institution using the pretext of “restructuring” the company.  The coup d’état is swift and brutal.  The employees are called together and informed that the company was closing due to President Obama’s failed economic policies; and then are escorted directly off the property.  Or, after an extended holiday the employees arrive at work to find that the gates are locked; and during their absence, the company has been stripped clean.  That is Mitt Romney’s and the Republican plan for America.
