Shooting your Childhood in the Face
In its never ending quest to turn every municipal building in the nation into an Arby’s, the GOP has declared public workers their public enemy #1. And now, much like our former public enemy #1 Osama Bin Laden experienced in May 2011, that means we can now legally shoot some public sector workers in the face!
Earlier this year Indiana passed a law that allows citizens to shoot public servants (i.e. police officers and firefighters) who illegally enter your house. So while firefighters are empowered to break down your door with an axe if your house is burning down, Hoosier State firefighters better be ready to use that axe defensively if the resident isn’t convinced they’re there legally.
Meanwhile, Mitt Romney on Friday attacked President Obama by saying “he wants another stimulus, he wants to hire more government workers. He says we need more fireman, more policeman, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It’s time for us to cut back on government.” This is a big moment guys: famous cop hating rapper Ice-T is just heartbeats away from endorsing Romney!
When it comes down to it though, it seems as though by striking out against on public employees, or letting citizens shoot them if they see fit, the GOP has declared war on the type of jobs that kids want to have. While all the other kids dressed up for Halloween firemen or astronauts (those lazy low-earth orbit swine sucking at the government’s teet), little Scott Walker was dressed up as…a hedge fund manager? A small businessman in Ohio?
So watch out Ballerinas and Marine Biologists, you’re next on the Right’s hit list.
