Hello America



It's time to vote again.

Once again you my fine American friends have the opportunity to cash in.

Vote for your favourite politician, you know the one that promises to spend more money, and of course, promises to take less of yours.
"Democracy will last until the public realizes that it can vote itself ..... ?(wealth)? from the public largesse." Alexis de Tocqueville

You can't tax the rich, you can't tax the middle class, you certainly can't tax the poor.

So......

You cut expenses.

Nope.

People get cranky if you do that.

So... you do....

Nothing.

Good luck with that.

If only someone could come up with a better system.

As nice as it was to see that picture of Mrs Solfest again, you neglect to mention anarchy as a solution.

“I’ve concluded that genius is as common as dirt. We suppress our genius only because we haven’t yet figured out how to manage a population of educated men and women. The solution, I think, is simple and glorious. Let them manage themselves.” - John Taylor Gatto

"Let them manage themselves"

Are you mad?

There wouldn't be anyone left standing within months.

No, I'm afraid Solfestland is the only solution.

You may kiss my ring now.

Solfestland? solid idea...count this anarchist in...how do we go about this takeover...and we know that we INTJs simply know better :)

Solfest said...

How do we go about this takeover?

Um.

Well currently I'm sharpening sticks.

Na.

As soon as the Solfestland post reaches 1 trillion hits, the people will carry me in on their shoulders.

Once LW is done kissing my ring that is.

Entirely off-topic but I blame you for this...

You get me addicted to 'TED' and I end up sitting through 10 mins of this UTTER nonsense... http://www.ted.com/talks/miwa_matreyek_s_glorious_visions.html

Expand your horizons LW.

Feel the wind beneath your wings.
