A few minor adjustments

Let’s make the Republicans in office happy.

Let’s cut off all funding for seniors. No more Social Security. Let ’em starve if they’re too old to work.

Same with kids. If they’re poor, it’s their own fault for not being born into wealth. Let them starve too.

Why waste money on education? Put kids to work when they’re 7, like in the good old days.

As for the handicapped, let them be street beggars. It works in Third World countries.

And let’s get rid of the unions. Eighteen-hour workdays, seven days a week, at slave wages, in unsafe working conditions worked great before union meddling.

Then, as a nation, we’ll be able to give bigger and better tax breaks to the very wealthy, the large corporations, and the oil giants.

We can totally deregulate Wall Street and the banks. And we can even start a few more wars to satisfy the Halliburtons and Blackwaters.

What a wonderful country this could be if not for those pesky Democrats!
