E-Mail to

Here is my letter to the White House, which can be reached at this address:

Long Live Lady Liberty!

To the Ministry of Truth:

Ever eager to help you in your great work of rooting out misinformation, I have been on the lookout for those radicals who by e-mail or on blogs or in casual conversation malign the One's Healthcare plan. Here is something from the print media, and although rather old, still of great concern.

"Amendment IX: The ennumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage other rights retained by the People.

"Amendment X: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution nor prohibited it by the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the People.

"Amendment XIII: Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jursidiction."

Since the Constitution clearly states that people retained unennumerated powers, and the power of the federal government is limited to ennumerated powers (all listed in the body of the Constitution), none of which include government sponsored health care; and since the people would be forced to work for the government for a substantial portion of their lives to pay for said healthcare initiative, the Constitution must be a subversive document of disinformation. This has been borne out by the fact that the federal government recently (in the MIAC Report) stated that people who discuss the Constitution are extremists. Since you have clearly not read the Constitution recently, I thought I would helpfully point this out for you, so that you can send the goons from SEIU and Acorn out to round up the heirs to Mr. Madison and Co.

Unfortunately, your thugs will have quite a job ahead of them as they will have to put every high school history book down the memory hole, along with all those pesky pocket Constitutions passed out by the Heritage Foundation (who have also spoken out against healthcare).

Oh, and I included a quote by Thomas Jefferson that ought to be supressed as well. After all, those tea party activists and town-hall protesters seem to have certain government officials running scared!

Your Obedient Slave,

Elisheva Levin

When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.

-Thomas Jefferson

Wonderful. Thanks for taking a stand!

I popped in to see what you had to say on the matter. I emailed the WH, too, and tried to keep the snark to a maximum.

Shutting up now, as requested by El Presidente.

(Seriously? SERIOUSLY?!? Are we being punked?)

Activities Coordinator: I am never as snarky as that with my blogger commenters, but I feel absolutely no obligation to be polite to a man who wants Americans to spy on one another.

Did the One tell us to shut up, already? Wow. We'll have to speak up more loudly.

Don't know if we are being punked. The story was on some of the major news outlets, so the original story is likely true.
