Call me an American Dissident. I believe in democracy and government of, FOR, and BY the PEOPLE. I do NOT believe in the plutocratic corpocracy this country is today, wherein government is made and administered of the wealthy, by the wealthy, and for the wealthy. I believe in wealth which is HONESTLY attained through hard work and merit. I do NOT believe in wealth attained by means of deceit, exploitation, or leverage. There is enough for all in this world. Greed is the major cause of poverty, and both are totally unnecessary.
Well, lookee here, folks: another anti-government, wacko far-right viral email I just got from one of my out-of-state cousins who will apparently believe anything and then immediately pass it on without even giving it a thought. This one is so full of inaccuracies and utter crap I don't even know where to begin. Our government saying no to healthcare for seniors? WHAT? The last time I checked, it was greedy insurance companies, NOT the government, who were denying people health care! Giving seniors a gun and six bullets to go out and SHOOT 2 SENATORS and 4 REPRESENTATIVES? WHAT??? A bit seditious, to say the least! Unpatriotic, too! And it's even attributed to the syndicated "Maxine" comic character, as if a nationally-syndicated cartoonist would publish anything as insanely controversial as this!
I really wonder about the mentality and sanity of the kind of person who dreams up and then peddles this type of patent nonsense. I also wonder what the people who forward this kind of crud are thinking. This is not humor. This is dishonest, irresponsible, and inflammatory. Just thought you'd like a glimpse below at some of the absurd far-right poppycock that's circulating in cyberspace these days. What purpose does junk like this serve, I ask? What does it accomplish? Anyway, here it is:
So you're a senior citizen and the government says no healthcare for you, what do you do? My plan gives anyone 65 years or older a gun and 6 bullets. You're allowed to shoot 2 senators and 4 representatives. Of course, this means you will be sent to prison, where you will get 3 meals a day, a roof over your head, and all the health care you need! New teeth, no problem. Need glasses, great. New hip, knees, kidney, lungs, heart? All covered. And who will be paying for all of this? The same government that just told you that you are too old for health care. Plus, because you are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any income taxes. IS THIS A GREAT COUNTRY OR WHAT?!
