Puppets and Puppeteers
Puppets and the Puppeteers (Is it me or is it you who lives in a pretend world?)

Men and women were sent to Congress under the guise of doing the people’s business.  They were all dressed up with ties and suits; the ladies in stylish dresses and pantsuits.  As they arrived at their designated offices, they sat at their desks, opened their lunch boxes and saw the following note: “You will now take directions only from Grover Norquist, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh and the Tea Party, for we are the ones who paid for your trip.  You are in a make-believe world where the people’s wishes are irrelevant and the other side just lost the elections.  You are not allowed to use your own minds, if any, under any circumstances; and your main objective will be to prevent the other side from getting anything done, especially if what they try to do will make the country work for everyone. Moreover, the ‘president’ is not a real American, and furthermore, he is Black!  Hence, what he says doesn’t count.  You will halt government progress by cutting all programs, especially if they pertain to helping the needy and the deserving; but don’t touch the rich or any legal loopholes designed to get them richer.  Take this message to its ultimate conclusion and make government smaller to the point where your jobs are eliminated, no longer needed, and therefore, those who are really there for the people who elected them, will have an opportunity to do great things for this country, for after all, your absence will automatically shrink the government, saving much needed dollars which can be directed to help the least of us, promote economic growth and pay off our debts.  Mission accomplished.”  3/16/13 by Horacio Lewis
