“How come these people get to lay us off. We never elected a car czar. Yet people out of nowhere that someone just appointed get to run our lives.” – Unidentified Autoworker
Silly little prole, what did you think this was? A free-market democratic republic? You elected a progressive socialist and you’re surprised to find him acting like a progressive socialist? This is what they do, they appoint inexperienced 31 year old cronies to positions of power because they have found favor with the Dear Leader — just like Bush did with Michael Brown and FEMA, and just like Kim Jong-Il did when he appointed his successor.
We’ve lost 16,000 jobs every day the Chicago Thug has been in office. The free market is dead, killed by unions, politicians, and corporate executives. The economy is political, and in a political economy, people are not put into power on the basis of merit. It’s politics. This is how mediocrities like Barack Obama, Sonia Sotomayor, and Joe Biden get to positions of power. Because while you were paying your union dues and watching American Idol, they were rigging the system with ACORN and a news media that functions as nothing but a propaganda arm for the progressive state. They kept you sedated with Oprah telling you you could avoid aging by injecting estrogen into your vajayjay. Your brain had already turned into mush by the time the evening news was on, and you stared glassy-eyed at the screen while Katie Couric chirped about how everything bad was Bush’s fault.
Worse yet, you believed them when they promised you free health care, free education for your kids, and free “green jobs” and they could pay for it all with other people’s money. And you went along with it, because you were so, so mad at George W. Bush because… because… because if you didn’t hate him, all your friends would think there was something wrong with you because everybody hated Bush except for stupid rednecks and Bible Thumpers, and you didn’t want people to think you were a stupid redneck Bible Thumper did you?
You abdicated your responsibility as a citizen. You failed to give critical thought to the kind of people you put in power. And now, you’re out of a job. Maybe Dear Leader will find you a job sorting garbage at the recycling center, or scrubbing bird residue off wind turbines. Those are the jobs proles do in the new green economy.
The avalanche has begun. It’s too late for the pebbles to vote.
