Art imitates life: The Onion spoofs Obama as asset looter via probate

This video from The Onion is priceless and undoubtedly our all-time favorite Estate of Denial™ posting!  While the piece is obviously satire, government looting the assets of hardworking Americans seriously occurs on a daily basis.

Through the Death Tax debate, the Obama Administration has fully demonstrated enthusiasm for confiscating assets of the dead.  Of course, interest in asset confiscation is to some degree also seen in statehouses across the country regardless of party control.

Nevertheless, injecting Obama into one of the Involuntary Redistribution of Assets (IRA) scenarios routinely discussed at Estate of Denial™ is apropos and brilliant.  And whoever produced this absolutely “gets” the contrivance of relationships and use of probate documents to dishonestly divert assets from intended parties.  Whether seriously or in jest, media incorporating inheritance rights abuse into more mainstream reportage is a good indication that our issue is gaining traction.

Enjoy!
