Warning, biting satire and sarcasm ahead:
Jim Treacher, from whom we stole this, says:
When I attended my first Tea Party in Indianapolis back in April 2009, two of the most effective speakers were an Irish couple who had moved to the U.S. to escape usurious taxation, and who were aghast that the same thing was happening here. Less than a year later, when I was crippled in Washington, DC by a State Department vehicle making an illegal turn, and was then given a fraudulent jaywalking ticket for it, the Romanian woman from whom I’d planned to rent an apartment* told me that this was just the sort of corruption and misrule that had driven her from her home country.
Sometimes it takes an immigrant — a legal immigrant — to remind us of what we all too often take for granted as Americans.
Quite. And then, after we’ve done so for going on two decades, only to observe an almost universal chorus of “la la la, we can’t HEAR you” from dumbfucks who then proceed to elect and re-elect the same kind of fascist fucknozzles that we warned about, we sort of get tired of it.
It’s like trying to teach a pig Chaucer. Only the pig’s too damn ignorant to even be annoyed.
