Last week, at the end of down-to-the-wire budget negotiations, the Dems not only gave away the store, they gave the Republicans change, lottery tickets, Green Stamps, and cab fare home.
Today's Democratic Party gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "throw away your vote."
I'm ready to vote for the Greens, the National Vegetarian Party, or even the American branch of the Raving Monster Loony Party. That party's proposal to drain the water out of lakes and fill them with wine so we could have pre-marinated trout isn't nearly as crazy or destructive as what's about to sail through Congress and the White House with the blessing of a thoroughly corrupt Supreme Court where conflicts of interest are just part of business.
We American fluffy bunnies will just roll over meekly for it all with hardly a peep of protest, until it's time to retire and we find that the Medicare and Social Security we've been paying into all of our working lives are gone, replaced by a coupon for 20% off as we confront the tender mercies of the Insurance and Healthcare industries. By that time, it will be too late.
Us fluffy bunny voters will discover that Our Betters expect us to be rabbit stew in the end.
I suppose our Democratic leadership's response to Republican outrages will continue to be "Shine your shoes mister?" Meanwhile, our new aspiring Overlords are holding the Bible and Atlas Shrugged while singing "Tomorrow Belongs to Me."
