**Mods, this may seem like it belongs in Rant, but I think this thread serves to show my perspective on the reason for the civil unrest we are seeing
as a result of failed social policies and obligations; albeit, in a sarcastic way. However, feel free to move (not like you need my permission, or
I am convinced we have somehow entered a parallel universe in which everything has been flipped on its head. I admittedly say that tongue-in-cheek,
but something weird has taken over our society. The enemies of our past have become our saviors. The civil servants and seeker of a better life have
become the sole reason for the destruction of America when it used to be they were considered PILLARS of American society.
The poor are suddenly responsible for the fact that the economy is collapsing. Sitting on your fat, lazy a$$ collecting welfare is all anyone needs
to do to take over an entire country and bring it to its knees. The corporate and political elite are now the ones who need to be saved from the poor
people's destructive forces. They are the ones who need welfare. What happens in Bizzaro America is we cut welfare for the poor, sick, elderly, and
disabled (those cretins) and give not only tax breaks to the elite, but also give them insane sums of money to help them get out of the hole they dug
The people who were once cherished for their contribution to advancing our society by teaching our children and protecting our homes and our lives are
now the greedy bastards who are responsible for poorly balanced budgets by elected officials who take bribes and gifts from the highest bidder.
Americans need to be saved from their diabolical plan to bleed our state economies dry. Who care if $65,000 of their supposed $100,000 salaries goes
to pay for social security, medicare, federal and state taxes, licensing, continuing education, holiday pay, healthcare, dental, and vision premiums,
life insurance benefits, and retirement contributions and matches so that they aren't a drain on our society when they are old, sick and unable to
work for a living. When that happens, they will STILL be taking all our money...those greedy bastards. No one deserves that crap for a hard day's
The same immigrants who used to flock to America in droves as a great compliment and testament to how great America is compared to all others and to
escape the hardships of other countries who simply can't compare to what America has to offer are the evildoers who are to blame for the incredibly
high unemployment rates after thousands of jobs were shipped over seas and corporations laid off people in droves because they couldn't afford the
ever-rising "fixed" cost of CEO bonuses, corporate jets, and penthouses. Something had to go, after all, and the rich can't be bothered with the
burden of paying their success forward to the very society that made it possible for them to succeed in the first place.
Apparently, in bizzaro world, it's okay to lose your job to a foreigner, as long as said foreigner performs your job in their own damn country, works
on an American farm,r mows your lawn, or turns down you hotel sheets in your swanky penthouse. It's okay for corporations to receive gargantuan tax
breaks while cutting your healthcare, retirement, and holding back on raises.
In Bizzaro America, it's illegal to feed the poor, sell lemonade on the corner, and build vegetable gardens in your front yard. If you have to
remind a cop of what your civil rights are, you deserve a beating for mouthing off.
If you're an Arab, you are feared and hated for your beliefs. You could kill anyone at any second cuz you're psycho like that. If you're Asian or
Black and Muslim, which would be expected since you would be part of the vast majority of all Muslims, no one knows you're Muslim since you're not
brown, so you're okay. In this new America, what you need to do if you're brown and Muslim is go join a terrorist organization to redeem yourself.
Not just any terrorist organization. No. It's only okay to be a terrorist if you plan to overthrow the government of a long sought after
geopolitical target. Hell. We'll even provide air support and guns on the ground. But the second the motivation for your terrorist activities is to
fight against our support for tyrannical and oppressive dictators who we'll torture your a$$ from here to Sunday and no one will care, because, in
Bizzaro America, people have no problem with others inflicting untold pain and mental torment on human beings who have been easily brainwashed because
others took advantage of their weakness produced from fear and utter ignorance after they saw a small plane that looked like it couldn't fit a person
in it dropped bombs on their loved ones or neighbors. Because, in Bizzaro America, we have no idea what it's like to be promised salvation from a God
as long as you do what he says and if you don't, your soul will be tormented for eternity. We have no idea what it is like to see your countrymen
killed with no remorse and want to get revenge and see justice served.
In Bizzaro America, its okay for our government to routinely and repeatedly "miss" targets and kill children playing because, well, this stuff just
happens and the overall effort is to keep them safe anyway. if you get sick of us killing your people indiscriminately and tell us to get the hell
out, we will stop giving you welfare (because you deserve it more than those damn teachers and old people) from you while we continue to give amounts
several times more to those who do our bidding even as our economy spirals out of control because of those damn teachers, police officers, firemen,
immigrants, and children selling lemon aid on the corner.
