Time to Replace “Freedom” with “FreeSmart”

Posted on December 16, 2010 11:00 am

I have a new column at Pajamas Media where I propose an alternative to freedom since I think we’re kinda done with that.

    Frank, you scare me. You don’t scare me as much as the Pajamas Media commenters who don’t understand satire. But you still scare me.

    Time to replace “commenting” with “fermenting” where frustrations build up because we can’t read the comments!

    I’m in! I’m getting old and I have one requirement. The government has to hire butt wipers. When I need to take a number 2 there needs to be a butt wiper there for me! That would like be super awesome! If I could have a butt wiper 24X7 I’d sign up for the rest and sign away my freedom!

    You nailed it Frank. It’s all about us being to stupid to have freedom. It’s amazing we’ve survived this long without the gubment making every decision for us everyday.

    I believe, ussjc, that the job you describe (butt wiper) falls into the category of ‘jobs Americans just don’t want.’ You’d most likely have to hire an illegal non-American to fill the position. If you do…don’t forget, you’re still required to pay into said persons social security.

    I will not submit to FreeSmart

    btw, IMAO, MM, & Hot Air all have “submit comment” buttons, Wizbang goes all out with a “submit” button – not going there!
    and LGF has a “Post the Comment”?
    To have LGF have it right is wrong.
    Down with submit buttons!

    I still think the smartest thing the right could do is focus on federalism.

    In reality cut much actual government and the left will flood the media with anecdotal sob stories and the republicans will be swept out the next election. What little you cut will be grown several times over by their new majority. Think of a mutant starfish.

    Stop letting the fed take the power, responsibility, and money from the states. The left will howl but then love how much freedom they have locally in their blue enclaves for their special interest and social engineers. The rest of us can move to red states.

    Not funny Frank. Most of my inlaws believe this is true. Just not funny.

    That piece of satire goes so far in that it’s like reliving a terrible nightmare.

    I’m waiting for the punch line just like I hope my eyes open before the knife wielding clown catches me.

    Screw civilization; I’m all about the chaos. Give me the transfats, the unregulated wireless devices, the pirate radio stations, and the personal responsibility any day of the week!
