I was doing some research for some letters I am writing to my elected slave masters…….I mean elected representatives, and ended up on the whitehouse.gov Petitions page. This a page of the White House website that is supposedly there to give the little people, (that’d be you and me) a voice in government.
Out of curiosity I decided to scroll through the list of open petitions and petitions that have already received responses. While there are several worthwhile petitions there, the list of petitions is largely a joke! My takeaway is that many (most) of the people posting these things are basically begging the govt to get involved in every mundane element of their lives!
One petition calls for making “table tennis” part of school curriculum. One calls for Piers Morgan to be deported for practicing free speech. Another asks that pharmacists be made health care providers. Yet another asks that Facebook be forced to block all child pornography! Really!? Hey asswipe! Why not personally refuse to patronize Facebook forever if they are in fact allowing child pornography? Oh yeah, that might take away your right to post that you just took a shit or scratched your balls, as if the rest of the world really cares about you!
If you feel like wasting a few minutes of your life, you can see more of the lunacy for yourself at https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/
Until We The People learn to stand on our own two feet and reject the desire for govt to run our lives, we deserve what we get. Hell, I have to admit that if I were a career criminal…..I mean career politician and was the recipient of drivel like this, I might be inclined to do everything in my power to clamp down and control the population at large too! Maybe I should re-think writing those letters?
