The Leader of a small but vocal fundamentalist cult in Washington, DC, says he will go ahead with his plan to burn a pile of taxpayers' dollars this Friday.
Scheduled to take place in front of the White House, the money-burning ceremony will kick off a planned "systematic campaign of burning, shredding, drowning, catapulting, and otherwise obliterating trillions of tax dollars throughout the nation until the 2012 elections," declared Barack Obama, the shadowy figure behind this controversial plan. "My faith tells me that all money is evil; burning your tax dollars my protest against the values of this prosperous nation that I have sworn to fundamentally bankrupt," he said.
The massive outrage caused by Obama's plan was surprisingly strong, especially considering the lack of media attention.
Democratic strategist Chris Matthews cautioned that burning tax dollars would be a "recruitment bonanza" for Tea Parties. "This could cause irreparable damage to our public relations and increase the recruitment of anti-spend politicians who'd throw the Democrats out of Congress," Matthews warned in an interview he gave to himself on his own MSNBC show.
