BREAKING: GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN TO FORCE CLOSURE OF INTERSTATE HIGHWAYS
Well, maybe not yet. But the fact that I was able to make you look shows just how beholden we’ve become to a government that controls not only our Amber Alert system but the live footage of visiting Pandas — and soon, if it gets its way, will be able to hold our health care over our heads should we not buckle to its “need” for constant new revenue streams.
In short, it shows how willing the DC elite are to cause us discomfort and suffering should we not subjugate ourselves to them, to willingly enslave ourselves to a fascistic State that wears the mask of beneficent paternalism.
– Which, in turn, makes the case that it’s long past time for some serious pruning.
So. Grab your shears, people! And don’t fret! Instead, just think of the exercise as reshaping the community garden: first we remove the bindweed, then we go all Bonsai tree on the thing, until all that’s left is a pretty little silhouette that we keep perched on our desk to remind us how best to protect our liberty from untended overgrowth.
