TWH, May the Fourth (be with you) 2016. Open Letter to the Ruling Class

An Open Letter to The Ruling Class from We The People

Dear Ruling Class:

  • We The People are tired of running this country. We don’t want the responsibility that goes with being a voting member of a democratic republic. Please take away our right to vote.
  • We the People are tired of thinking. Thinking takes too much effort. Please tell us what we need to know in as few words as possible. Three word phrases are great. Nice and catchy. Easy to remember. Short and sweet.
  • We the People are tired of caring. We’re emotionally burnt out. Whether it’s abandoned puppies in animal shelters or polar bears starving in the Artic because of something that’s going on that takes too much thought to figure out – enough already. We get it. We’re supposed to care for these helpless creatures. But we can barely afford to feed our family and pay our rent. We just don’t have the emotional reserves to care about anything anymore.
  • We the People are tired of deciding what’s best for us. We want you to decide for us on some of the most basic decisions, especially when it comes to being pregnant. We want you to make the decision on whether our women should have the option of having an abortion or having an unwanted child. We want you to decide whether we should have access to birth control. Or even if we should know about birth control in the first place. That’s just too much responsibility for us.
  • We the People are tired of having our jobs shipped overseas. We want you to abolish the minimum wage, so that we may compete with workers in other countries on an equal footing. We know that in a competitive market, the lowest price gets the business and with the minimum wage, We the People cannot work for the lowest price.
  • We the People are tired of public education. Our kids complain about homework and testing all the time. Frankly, we’re tired of our children whining. Please take mandatory schooling laws off the books so we don’t have to send our kids to school any more. We’re tired of Back to School Night, of Science Fairs, and endless fundraising. Since public schools are failing, We the People are tired of wasting our tax money on them. Parents that want their kids to receive an education should pay for it out of their own pockets. Unless they send their children to a Christian School. In that case, we want our government to pay for it. It’s only fair, because we are a Christian Nation.
  • We the People are tired of hearing about things we can’t control. Things like the climate. Or safe drinking water. Or breathable air. Or safe food. We know you control the media, so please stop telling us we can’t drink the water or breath the air or eat certain foods. Time after time we have voted against GMO labeling. What part of “We don’t want to know” do you not understand?

We know that what is best for you is best for us, for you have told us so. And so we give you everything you want, and in return, you keep us safe from terrorists and gays and transgendered people using our bathrooms.

Oh, and thank you for repealing the assault weapons ban. We the People sleep soundly at night, comforted in the thought that we have more guns per person that any other civilized country on Earth. Just in case we need to kill an intruder. Or rise up in rebellion against a government that takes away our freedumbs.

  1. Ho hum….. too long, didn’t read.
    Gotta get back to Fox News and cupcake wars.

    sarc/on

  2. Indeed

    Rudepundit went there too this week : “Don’t Worry Andrew Sullivan, Americans are too lazy… “

  3. Glenn Beck: ‘You Will Never Have Another Republican President Ever Again’

    With Trump as the face of the GOP, Beck declared, the Republican Party is now the party of racists and liars and he wants nothing to do with it, warning that Republicans will “never elect another GOP person to high office ever again.”

    Hillary Clinton will win the election and then “legalize as many voters as she can” while painting the Republican Party as “completely racist,” he said, and “you will never have another Republican president ever again.”

    First time in my recollection that Beck has ever been close to right on a lot of stuff. My grandest hope is that his pinnacle of correctness is that the Republican Party will NEVER elect another president! Could well prove to be this nation’s final hope for survival till the Sixth Mass Extinction takes care of things once and for all!

    • I think the “Hillary Clinton … while painting…” – I think that the GOP pulled that pillowcase over it’s head all by itself … no help from anyone else needed.

    • Beck and his role in creating a party supported by and consisting of racists and liars ….

      … the denial is strong with this one.

    • And you can thank conservative media for that, especially the televised part.

      Cable TV needs advertisers to survive, unless they want to operate at a loss to further a personal agenda, which someone like Rupert Murdoch is just crazy enough to do. To gain that advertising revenue, they promise them your eyeballs. That’s right. Every show on TV with ads is renting your eyeballs for a fee you don’t monetarily collect. And you do not owe them your eyeballs.

      Conservative media learned that there is a loyal group of lower-intellect viewers who would stay tuned to conservative media all day long. Unfortunately, rather than just find some good way to keep them, they chose lies and bigotry, something lower-intellect people gobble up like candy.
