The White House is in crisis mode after accidentally ordering a targeted drone strike on the Fox News Headquarters in New York City. On Thursday, at approximately 2:37 AM, members of the Joint Chiefs alerted President Obama that the Drone Strike System or DSS had activated and that several fully armed drones had been sent to deal with an “immediate threat to national security”. The President, realizing the system’s mistake was able to abort the attack just seconds before missiles would have destroyed the headquarters for the conservative media outlet.
I am awaiting developments!
(psst: you and I know that the source is a satire site. But the dummies whose support we need to keep our tax cuts don’t know this…so make sure that crazy uncle puts this in one of those viral e-mail messages).
All right; things haven’t been as smooth as we’d like. We have Karl Rove trying to get real Republicans to win the primary elections and the riff-raff tea party trying to get their candidates on the ballot.
Ok, it is time for real Republicans to make some concessions that might be mutually beneficial. Those Republicans of lower intellect (and lesser wealth) like Jesus stuff, and real Republicans (those with means) really don’t like paying for stuff for the poors.
So contemplate this (what I saw on facebook):
Now…let’s mull this over a bit. These people think that Jesus will cure them. These people always talk about religious freedom, right? And, well…what about Obamacare health plans? The libs talked about the “public option”. I saw that we require Obamacare to offer the JESUS OPTION. Tell the government to add a plan that, say, pays ministers to pray for the sick (or to not get sick at all). This is much, much, much cheaper than medicine and then the libs object, bellow on and on about “religious freedom”, how Obama is a tyrant, etc. Of course, regular vaccines will be covered too, but that is about it.
We pay less, the poors get…well…Jesus…and everyone is happy. And, even better: some Democrats will probably go for this!
Think about it: in Illinois, gay marriage passed the Illinois State Senate. They won’t brining it up….yet…in the Illinois House which is also Democratically controlled. Why? Well, one reason: in Illinois, many of the Democrats are black, and the black churches are every bit as bigoted protective of traditional marriage as our own riff-raff! Remember the blacks got Proposition 8 passed in California! (70 percent! )
So like it or not, we have an election in which one candidate is proposing a redistribution from the top — which is currently paying lower taxes than it has in 80 years — downward, mainly to lower-income workers, while the other is proposing a large redistribution from the poor and the middle class to the top.
So the next time someone tut-tuts about “class warfare”, remember that the class war is already happening, in real policy — with the top .01 percent on offense.
As a result, the arteries in American society are hardening. Social mobility is in decline, but, worse, the general drop in trust observable in all social classes is most marked among the poorest third of Americans. Nor should it be any surprise that they are “cynical and even paranoid”, writes Putnam: it is a rational response to their situation. Every institution that might be expected to alleviate their plight – family, school, voluntary organisations and church – has become dysfunctional.
Meanwhile, the rich, dealing themselves out of society’s institutions into ever stronger and sealed ghettoes of their own, become ever more ignorant of the world around them even while they ensure their off-spring scoop life’s prizes.
(ignore the British spelling).
Who wants a society where the deserving have to hang around with riff-raff?
I guess it isn’t ALL bad since we can make money…..oh wait…YES IT IS BAD!!!! TERRIBLE!!!! If we win back both houses of Congress and the executive branch…we can……..override a Democratic filibuster in the Senate……never mind. 🙂
