The One Branch(es) of Government

The Confederate Corporations of America announced additional wealth-management relief measures in its evolving mission statement. Most of the changes replace misleading names through the Confederate Truth in Governizing Act.

The misleading term “Partial Government Shutdown” becomes “The Parting-out of Government Share Act.” Funds previously misdirected to wasteful departments and agencies now funnel up into wealth-management relief services.

Public Service Announcement:

The Earth was doing just fine before environmentalists decided to take things in their own hands to bury a car, hug a tree, eat miso soup… If you worry about global warming, act locally to raise money through bake sales, lemonade stands or garage sales. We all have to die from something, so stop worrying.

SNAP miscreants may now be served directly at the supermarket. Participants of the new redemption program will find comfortable picnic tables behind the markets. The marginally-edible product otherwise destroyed becomes available for miscreants, and supermarkets get a boost to their profit margin — a win/win situation for everyone. Two more wins: the picnic tables are near the waste-storage units and may be used by lower-level miscreants after hours. Resource units who previously collected a paycheck at an eliminated agency may now apply for food-distribution facilitator positions.

Changes at the Top

The Decisionator Branch of Government becomes the one and only Branch, heading all governing arms and phalli.

This is the actual opinion of this author, who is decidedly not a fan of Number 45. I shudder to think that it might be taken literally.

The Legitimating Department transcribes tweets tapped by the Decisionator, now recognized as “The Intent to Govern.” Citizenship rights are allocated according to the principle “one dollar, one vote.”

The Originalist Court interprets tweet laws to ensure that they serve the intent of the Whiteous framers of the Constitution and The Natural Law: citizenship by dint of property and wealth.

The First Amendment is repealed so that the Second Amendment can become The First, perhaps the only. The scales of Lady Justice are money wasters. The officer on the beat knows how to color between the lines. Questionable police actions are no longer officially disdained.

News Tidbits

Cheese Corp recognizes a new CEO at Foxconn. Welcome, Scott Walker!

Hollywood Corp has announced its new license-plate slogan: In Gaud We Trust.

Did you know that there are currently Thirteen Corporations in America? Yes, one for each star on the New Confederate Flag.

Thanks for reading.

    1. Thanks for the kind reaction to the onslaught here. The views expressed are not my own, I hope no one chances upon it and thinks they’ve encountered a kindred spirit and want to invite me to a klan rally 🙂

      1. Bill, as moronic, ignorant, brain dead and stupid as klan members are, even they have got to have at least two brain cells connected and working to be able to figure out that you are NOT trying to join up with THAT lot! Perish the thought! That’d almost be like me trying to meet up with them at a rally and we ALL should know better than that!


  1. It’s hard to write satire today as events on the ground are so incomprehensibly and brazenly absurd that a kernel of rebuke already exists within this or that outrage of the day. Those who know that war isn’t peace, that freedom isn’t slavery, that ignorance isn’t strength–yet persist in espousing the opposite for ideological gain are already clowns, and it’s hard to put a big fat red nose on top of another big fat red nose. (Nobody can blame us for trying though.)

  2. Oh Bill, this one is right on the nose. What an interesting perspective you took on our current party politic! I’ll be sad if #45 is able to elect himself to a second term, only because you will have no inspiration for great reads as this.

    PS – catching up on my winter/spring reading.

    1. Hi Shannon, Thank you for these kind comments, and for your lively and vivid journalling on DirtNKids. Shreds and shards seem to be all that remains of a semblance of checks and balances, separation of church and state, equal protection under the law… But then, I’ve been a tree-hugging bleeding-heart for a long time. How else could you describe someone who stands for equal protection under the law for all sentient beings? One sentient, one vote would bring the end of slaughterhouses, for one thing.
