Important Given Obama and Cronies

"One commenter at SFGate remarked there were times when corruption was so rampant that he believed it was not just a case of the odd bad apple but the whole barrel of apples being infested with worms.  He might have been surprised to learn the Founders agreed with him.  James Madison wrote to the people of New York:
If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.
America was founded on the notion that most politicians can only be expected to be ornery,  low-down, crooks. Nobody in those days was fool enough to believe they could be Light-workers, Messiahs and create a world without guns. Thus in the Founder’s view the only way to guard against rogues was to ensure that government remained as small as possible relative to its essential jobs; to change those in office frequently and often, like we change underwear.
The Founders saw roguery as the byproduct of high office.  And so they wrote a constitution — you know, the document more than a hundred years old that nobody smart reads any more — to keep the weeds down. For they knew better than our modern enlighteneds that any politician sufficiently powerful to disarm the people is sufficiently powerful to sell missiles bought from Russia to Muslim rebels in Mindanao.
Unless one remembers this there is no defense against crooks in high places."

"We are living in the Outer Limits, where, if the Democrats want your opinion they will give it to you as part of their long-running effort to manufacture consent. "

Where Have All the Flowers Gone? Obama Controls Them, Every One ...

(Receptionist) Hello, Welcome to ObamaFlowers. My name is Trina. How can I help you?

(Customer) Hello, I received an email from Professional Flowers stating that my flower order has been canceled and I should go to your exchange to reorder it. I tried your website, but it seems like it is not working. So I am calling the 800 number.

(Receptionist) Yes, I am sorry about the website. It should be fixed by the end of  November. But I can help you.

(Customer) Thanks, I ordered a "Spring Bouquet" for our anniversary, and wanted it delivered to my wife's work.

(Receptionist Interrupting) Sir, "Spring Bouquets" do not meet our minimum standards, I will be happy to provide you with Red Roses.

Rest of it is below the fold -
(Customer) But I have always ordered "Spring Bouquets", done it for years, my wife likes them.

(Receptionist) Roses are better, sir, I am sure your wife will love them.

(Customer) Well, how much are they?

(Receptionist) It depends sir, do you want our Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum package.

(Customer) What's the difference?

(Receptionist) The Bronze package is 12 red roses The Silver is 18.  Gold, 24, and Platinum, 48 red roses.

(Customer) The Silver package may be okay, how much is it?

(Receptionist) It depends, sir.  What is your monthly income?

(Customer) What does that have to do with anything?

(Receptionist)
I need that to determine your government flower subsidy.  Then I can
determine how much your out of pocket cost will be. But if your income
is below our minimums for a subsidy, then I can refer you to our
FlowerAid department.

(Customer) FlowerAid?

(Receptionist)
Yes, Flowers are a right, everyone has a right to flowers. So, if you
can't afford them, then the government will supply them free of charge.

(Customer) Who said they were a right?

(Receptionist) Congress passed it, the President signed it and the Supreme Court found it Constitutional.

(Customer) Whoa.....I don't remember seeing anything in the Constitution regarding flowers as a right.

(Receptionist)
It may not really be a right listed in the Constitution, but
ObamaFlowers is constitutional because the Supreme Court ruled it to be a
tax. Taxes are constitutional. But we feel it is a right.

(Customer) I don't believe this....

(Receptionist)
It's the law of the land, sir. Now, we anticipated most people would go
for the Silver Package, so what is you monthly income, sir?

(Customer) Forget it. I think I will forego the flowers this year...

(Receptionist) In that case, sir, I will still need your monthly income.

(Customer) Why?

(Receptionist) To determine what your 'non-participation' cost will be.

(Customer) WHAT???? Your can't charge me for NOT buying flowers!!!

(Receptionist) It's the law of the land, sir, approved by the Supreme Court. It's $9.50 or 1% of your monthly income.

(Customer)interrupting) This is ridiculous. I'll pay the $9.50.

(Receptionist) Sir, it is either $9.50 or 1% of your monthly income, whichever is greater.

(Customer) ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? What a ripoff!!

(Receptionist) Actually, sir, it is a good deal. Next year it will be 2%.

(Customer)
Look, I'm going to call my congressperson to find out what's going on
here. This is ridiculous. I'm not going to pay it.

(Receptionist)
Sorry to hear that, sir, that's why I had the NSA track this call and
obtain the make and model of the cell phone your are using.

(Customer) Why does the NSA need to know what kind of CELL PHONE I AM USING????

(Receptionist) So they get your GPS coordinates, sir.

(Door Bell rings followed immediately by a loud knock on the door.)

(Receptionist) That would be the IRS, sir. Thanks for calling ObamaFlowers.  Have a nice day...and God Bless America .
