You'd better cling to that little thread because it's all you've got right now.

It's called irony. The more TGT and Ron post, the more they reinforce this thread's validity. Republicans are wrong about everything.

Imagine a big corporation. A really big corporation that monopolizes everything and compels you to buy its low quality overpriced services and imprisons you if you refuse to pay whether you use them or not.

Now imagine a CEO who picks and chooses which laws to follow, who breaks the law, embezzles huge sums for his friends, lies repeatedly and is never.held accountable for it.

We are all shareholders of the corporation of government whose board and CEO we vote for, but whose undemocratic governing mechanisms make those votes less meaningful and many of whose shareholders are part of bloc votes that profit from the unsustainable practices of the corporation and vote in bad boards that rob us blind so that they can pocket more money.

The corporation's goal is to turn its shareholders into consumers; transforming free people into people who want free things so that the corporation of government can govern the people without being governed by them.

Once, Americans were shareholders of government. Today Americans are consumers of government. They aren't calling the shots; they're standing in line hoping for a special on health care in Aisle 1500.

And the fact that the gov't is finally providing health care to "shareholders" who are otherwise denied it, leaving them to die, is of course meaningless.

And the above scenario more closely resembles the process involved in invading and occupying Iraq, and enriched Halliburton, which we listened to you cheerlead for ad nauseam, than it does the process which enacted the ACA.

I mean, do you even realize how delusionally, irrationally butthurt you have to be to even get INTO that metaphor?

Imagine you work for a corporation. And that corporation provides you health insurance. Now imagine another corporation that doesn't. Now imagine a third corporation owned by unicorns with rainbows coming out of their asses. And then everybody kills themselves because its a bad metaphor that preys on every right wingers dream that they are a super powerful shareholder businessman economist.

MoveOn.org Petition Calls For Arrest Of Republican Leaders For Sedition


The Huffington Post | By Shadee Ashtari
10/17/2013 3:41 pm EDT
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/17/moveon-petition-arrest-republicans_n_4116820.html?utm_hp_ref=politics


The 16-day shutdown of the federal government has finally come to an end, but many Americans are still furious about what they perceive as a GOP-sponsored gambit to defund the Affordable Care Act.

One outlet for that fury is a petition from the progressive MoveOn.org that calls for the U.S. Department of Justice to arrest and try Republican leaders, including House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (Va.) and House Speaker John Boehner (Ohio), for "the crime of seditious conspiracy against the United States of America."

The petition argues that "the House GOP leadership's use of the Hastert Rule and H. Res 368 to shut down the government and threaten the US economy with default is an attempt to extort the United States government into altering or abolishing the Affordable Care Act, and thus, is self-evidently a seditious conspiracy." (The U.S. Code defines "seditious conspiracy" in part as any conspiracy "to oppose by force the authority [of the U.S. government], or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States.")

With more than 21,000 signatures to date, the petition reflects a wider revulsion over the government's costly political meltdown -- which, among other consequences, resulted in furloughs for 800,000 federal workers, the shuttering of some Head Start programs, the suspension of federal health and safety inspections, and the loss of $24 billion in economic activity.

At the end of the standoff, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) was among those still angered by the shutdown, although not so angry as to accuse anyone of being an enemy of the state.

"I'm glad that the government shutdown has ended, and I'm relieved that we didn't default on our debt. But I want to be clear: I am NOT celebrating tonight," the senator wrote in an email Wednesday night. "So I'm relieved, but I'm also pretty angry."

I've got an idea let's call them all traitors and question their Americanism because that is the most authentic and least hypocritical expression of our outrage.
