This is going to be a quick one folks, so please forgive me for the length (the lack of it) but I just couldn't pass the urge to bring it to your attention. Here is the issue: There is a title-headline on msn's recent "Money & Quotes" section that says "Watch Out for 'Obama debt relief' Scam" (by Liz Pulliam Weston), and it bugs me tremendously...
WATCH OUT FOR "OBAMA DEBT RELIEF" SCAM? FOR CHRIST'S SAKE!!??
Now I get the point that it is not really a warning against the president by claiming that we could be scammed by him any minute, but honestly how easy is it to miscomprehend the intended meaning or to be subliminally manipulated by it, especially if you are a...let's say..."reading comprehension skill challenged" Tea Bagger?
Moreover, when you click on the title you end up with the following:
So expect to hear a lot about "the credit card debt relief act" or "President Obama's debt relief plan," among other bogus come-ons.
"The advertising sounds so good that if I didn't know what I know, I might fall for this, too," said debt expert Gerri Detweiler, who runs DebtCollectionAnswers.com. "If the government bailed out the (credit card) issuers, why didn't they do anything for the borrowers?"
Aha! Now after going over the quotations, focus on the last line and tell me if you don't also infer how the government has failed the borrowers even though the line appears to be questioning the "credit card issuers," on the surface?
Thank you for reading
