Its the Progressive Way

My New Passport

My New Passport (Photo credit: Tom Raftery)

My cousin sent this to me, I think it is bloomin’ hilarious. Its the Progressive way of thinking.

THIS IS PRICELESS:

ACTUAL PASSPORT APPLICATION LETTER SENT BACK TO STATE DEPARTMENT

Dear Mrs. Ms. Or Sir:

I’m in the process of renewing my passport and still cannot believe this.

How is it that Radio Shack has my address and telephone number and knows that I bought a cable TV from them in 1987 (23 years ago), and yet, the Federal Government is still asking me where I was born and on what date.

For Christ sakes, do you guys do this by hand? Ever heard of computers?

My birth date you have in my social security file. It’s on EVERY income tax form I’ve filed for the past 30 years. It’s on my Medicare health insurance card and my driver’s license, it’s on the last eight damn passports I’ve had, it’s on every stupid customs declaration form I’ve had to fill out before being allowed off the plane for the last 30 years. And it’s on all those census forms that we have to do at election times.

Would somebody please take note, once and for all, that my mother’s name is Maryanne, my father’s name is Robert and I’m reasonably confident that neither name is likely to change between now and when I die.

Between you an’ me, I’ve had enough of this bureaucratic bullshit!

You send the application to my house, then you ask me for

my #*&#%*& address.

What is going on? You must have a gang of bureaucratic Neanderthal morons working there!

Look at my damn picture. Do I look like Bin Laden? And “No,” I don’t want to dig up Yasser Arafat, for shit sakes. I just want to go and park my ass on a sandy beach. And would someone please tell me, why would you give a damn whether I plan on visiting a farm in the next 15 days?

If I ever got the urge to do something weird to a chicken or a goat, believe you me, I’d sure as hell not want to tell anyone!

Well, I have to go now because I have to go to the other end of the city and get another #*@&#^@*@& copy of my birth certificate to the tune of $100.

Would it be so difficult to have all the services in the same area so I could get a new passport the same day? Nooooo, that would require planning and organization. And it would be too logical for the @&^*^%@% government.

You’d rather have us running all over the place like chickens with our heads cut off. Then, we have to find some asshole to confirm that it’s really me in the damn picture – you know, the one where we’re not allowed to smile… Hey, you know why we can’t smile?

We’re totally pissed off!

Signed

P.S. Remember what I wrote about getting someone to confirm that the picture is me? Well, my family has been in the United States of America since 1776. I have served in the military for something over 35 years and have had security clearances up the ying yang. However, I have to get someone important to verify who I am – you know, someone like my doctor……. WHO WAS BORN AND RAISED IN INDIA !

And you assholes want to run our health care system?????

Put Another Log on the Fire

One thing a Boy Scout learns early is how to start a fire. Fire is essential to survival. Since POTUS has never been a Boy Scout he needs to learn the best way to make a roaring fire is not by striking a match to a big tree. A good Scout starts his match to dry fine tinder, moves up by adding twigs, and then larger sticks, eventually, when the flames are hot and strong, he adds a moderate size chunk of log. The US economy is now at a stage of a small fire. It is barely hanging on and it needs incentivizes to grow stronger, but not with a honking huge log.

The heart of our economy is small business. It needs to be nurtured and fed sales in a continuous stream without interruption. If business has its tinder taken away in the form of taxation or new regulatory costs there is not enough left to feed the fire and make it grow. The overall effect of a huge stimulus at this point would certainly be to squash any business activity with inflationary costs. My advisor tells me that there is no inflation, and I ask him if he has bought milk or gas lately? Sure, electronics are not rising in price, but the stuff of everyday life is rising very fast.

Do not get your votes at my expense Mr. President, get my approval by doing something right for the country, RESIGN!
