A necessary divorce
Posted by Liberty on February 27, 2009
I received this as a forward yesterday. I realize that e-mail forwards are probably considered low-hanging fruit in the world of blogging but I liked it and this is my blog. Therefore, I will post and you will read.
Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists, Obama supporters, et al:
We have stuck together since the late 1950’s, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has run its course. Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right, so let’s just end it on friendly terms. We can smile; slate it up to irreconcilable differences, and go on our own ways.
Here is a model dissolution agreement:
Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass–each taking a portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that it should be relatively easy!Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.
We don’t like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.
You are welcome to liberal judges and the ACLU.
Since you hate guns and war, we’ll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA, and the military.
You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore, and Rosie O’Donnell (you are
however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move them).
We’ll keep the capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart, and Wall Street.
You can have your beloved homeless, homeboys, hippies, and illegal aliens.
We’ll keep the hot Alaskan Hockey Moms, greedy CEO’s, and Rednecks.
We’ll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood .
You can make nice with Iran , Palestine , and France , and we’ll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.
You can have the peaceniks and war protestors. When our allies or way of life are under assault, we’ll provide them job security.
We’ll keep our Judeo-Christian Values. You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, and Shirley McClain.
You can have the U.N. but we will no longer be paying the bill.
We’ll keep the SUV’s, pickup trucks, and oversized luxury cars.
You can take every Subaru Station Wagon you can find.
You can give everyone healthcare, (if you can find any practicing doctors) and Howard Dean, who will follow you to your turf.
We’ll continue to believe healthcare is an amazing privilege and not a right.
We’ll keep The Battle Hymn of the Republic and the National Anthem. I’m sure you’ll be happy to substitute Imagine, I’d Like to Teach The World To Sing, KumBaYa, or We Are the World.
We’ll practice “trickle down” economics and you can give “trickle up” poverty its best shot.
Since it so often offends you, we will keep our History, our Name, and our Flag.
Would you agree to this? If so please pass it along to other like-minded patriots, and if you do not agree just hit delete and hang on.
In the spirit of friendly parting, I will bet you ANWAR on who will need whose help in 15 years.
