Age of Insanity

How’s this for apocalyptic literature? This was written
in biblical prose as a commentary of current
events. It is brilliant. I just couldn’t resist sharing it.
“And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people
of the land called America, having lost their morals, their
initiative, and their will to defend their liberties, chose as
their Supreme Leader that person known as “The One.”
He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no
meaning; but He hypnotized the people telling them, “I am
sent to save you.” My lack of experience, my questionable
ethics, my monstrous ego, and my association with evil
doers are of no consequence. I shall save you with hope
and Change. Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the
land that he who proceeded me is evil, that he has defiled
the nation, and that all he has built must be destroyed.
And the people rejoiced, for even though they knew not
what “The One” would do, he had promised that it was
good; and they believed. And “The One” said “We live
in the greatest country in the world. Help me change
everything about it!” And the people said, “Hallelujah!
Change is good!” Then He said, “We are going to tax
the rich fat-cats.” And the people said “Sock it to them!”
“And redistribute their wealth.” And the people said,
“Show us the money!” And then he said, “redistribution
of wealth is good for everybody..”
And Joe the plumber asked, ” Are you kidding me?
You’re going to steal my money and give it to the
deadbeats??” And “The One” ridiculed and taunted
him, and Joe’s personal records were hacked and
One lone reporter asked, “Isn’t that Marxist policy?”
And she was banished from the kingdom.
Then a citizen asked, “With no foreign relations
experience and having zero military experience
or knowledge, how will you deal with radical
terrorists?” And “The One” said, “Simple. I
shall sit with them and talk with them and show
them how nice we really are; and they will forget
that they ever wanted to kill us all!” And the people
said, “Hallelujah!! We are safe at last, and we can
beat our weapons into free cars for the people!”
Then “The One” said “I shall give 95% of you
lower taxes.” And one, lone voice said, “But
40% of us don’t pay ANY taxes.” So “The One”
said, “Then I shall give you some of the taxes
the fat-cats pay!”
And the people said, “Hallelujah! Show us the
money!” Then “The One” said, “I shall tax
your Capital Gains when you sell your homes!”
And the people yawned and the slumping housing
market collapsed. And He said. “I shall mandate
employer-funded health care for every worker
and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give
every person unlimited healthcare and medicine
and transportation to the clinics.” And the people
said, “Give me some of that!”
Then he said, “I shall penalize employers who ship
jobs overseas.” And the people said, “Where’s my
rebate check?”
Then “The One” said, “I shall bankrupt the coal industry
and electricity rates will skyrocket!” And the people said,
“Coal is dirty, coal is evil, no more coal! But we don’t
care for that part about higher electric rates.” So “The
One” said, Not to worry. If your rebate isn’t enough to
cover your expenses, we shall bail you out. Just sign up
with the ACORN and you troubles are over!”
Then He said, “Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted.
Let’s grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education,
free lunches, free medical care, bi-lingual signs and
guaranteed housing…” And the people said, “Hallelujah!”
and they made him king!
And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling
costs and ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid
off workers. Others simply gave up and went out of
business and the economy sank like unto a rock dropped
from a cliff.
The bank banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing
slowed to a crawl. And more of the people were without
a means of support.
Then “The One” said, “I am the “the One”- The Messiah –
and I’m here to save you! We shall just print more money
so everyone will have enough!” But our foreign trading
partners said unto Him. “Wait a minute. Your dollar is not
worth a pile of camel dung! You will have to pay more…
And “The One” said, “Wait a minute. That is unfair!!”
And the world said, “Neither are these other idiotic
programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become
a Socialist state and a second-rate power. Now you
shall play by our rules!”
And the people cried out, “Alas, alas!! What have we
done?” But yea verily, it was too late. The people set
upon The One and spat upon him and stoned him,
and his name was dung. And the once mighty nation
was no more; and the once proud people were without
sustenance or shelter or hope. And the Change “The
One” had given them was as like unto a poison that
had destroyed them and like a whirlwind that consumed
all that they had built.
And the people beat their chests in despair and cried
out in anguish, “give us back our nation and our pride
and our hope!!” But it was too late, and their homeland
was no more.”
You may think this a fairy tale, but it’s not. It’s happening
This really tells it like it is.
