Trust the Farce

From the NY Times:

On July 3, news reports said Senator John McCain, worried that he might lose the election before it truly started, opened his doors to disciples of Karl Rove from the 2004 campaign and the Bush White House. Less than a month later, the results are on full display. The candidate who started out talking about high-minded, civil debate has wholeheartedly adopted Mr. Rove’s low-minded and uncivil playbook.

    The Uber-rich do as they please, as the new royalty should do! and we remain diligent workers beneath them. It is not our place to question their morals, it is our place to serve this new upper-class on bended and patriotic knee, in the sewers, in the truck cabs, in the grocery stores, in the factories, in the brothels, in Iraq. We the common people will be taught a cruel lesson by deflation of our dollars and inflation of prices by the Uber-class, no matter who has babies in their mystical magic world of mid-Atlantic transplants from live doners or their may mansions they cannot count and Frank Sinatra shoes! We are going to get our asses kicked firmly and maybe even paddled with a republican cricket bat! Be polite and discrete people, they may be taking names down, now that the truth stinks, and Georgie W has the right to spy on you and brand you a terrorist without due process! I caution you my countrymen, wire-taps abound, and the terrorist label is a death-sentence without a judge or lawyer!

    Who are these Uber-Rich of whom you speak? The Kennedys? Kerrys? Gores?

    Or people like Warren Buffet and George Soros who funnel money to Obama. Wonder why Barak doesn’t need public funds?

    Or those Hollywood stars who love to spew how awful Conservatives are?

    I wish Democrats would realize the Uber-Rich are in your party and their goal is to ensure their long term wealth by ensuring poor Americans remain dependent on government social programs. The wealth re-distribution Democrats and Socialists want simply eliminate the upper-middle tier, protecting the Uber Rich and create a very large lower middle class whose quality of life is less than their parents and has no hope of ever improving.

    Open your eyes!
