Playing Telephone On Our Dime

We, at The Tyranny of Tradition, are proud to present today’s guest writer, Jonathan Winthrop.  Winthrop is a conservative columnist, syndicated talk radio host, and all-around great American.  He is the President and Co-founder of Americans Against Taxation and Other Forms of Persecution.  He is the author of several New York Times best-sellers including “Jesus Didn’t Pay Taxes, Why Should You?” and “How The Obama Administration, The IRS, The Teamsters, Al-Queda, The Communist Party, Women Who Won’t Return Your Phone Calls and The Obama Administration Are Conspiring To Steal Your Money And Force You Into Re-education Camps…and How To Fight Back”.

This week, the corruption in Washington reached a new low.  Many of you missed the now famous “Obama Lets Kid Use Limo Phone” (aka LimoPhoneGate) clip that’s been all over the news but, in case you have managed to find away to ignore the ever-present 24-hour-a-day liberal media machine, here it is….

The Kenyan-In-Chief is at it again, showing wanton disregard for a nation in financial crisis because of the failed liberal experiments that have been eating away at the greatness of America for the last 2,000 years.  This time, he’s spending our money to let some kid make a phone call from his, you guessed it, limousine.  I know what your thinking, how much could one phone call actually cost?  That’s what THEY want you to think.

The whole letting kids use the President’s phone thing is a slippery slope.  Maybe one phone call only costs 25-cents, but imagine for a second that the President allowed 100 kids a day use his phone?  Imagine if he allowed thousands!?!?!  What if some of those kids happened to be undocumented, illegal aliens?  The cost would be crippling to this great nation.  What if he didn’t let them just leave messages, what if the kids started using the phone to make personal calls to their friends or even started “text-messaging”?  After all, he believes in change and equal rights for all and other radical ideas from the old Saul Alinsky/Red Diaper Baby Playbook.  Why shouldn’t all American kids get to use his phone, not just a privileged elite?  Once the genie of Liberalism is out of Pandora’s Box, it’s not so easy to get it back in.

This sorry episode of Limousine Telephone Liberalism illustrates a deeper, more troubling problem.  Sources in Washington have told me that those kids are, in fact, not taxpayers.  As a matter of fact, most American children get over on this great nation without paying taxes.  Millions of these little parasites skate by carefree without the burdens of responsibility that are heaped unfairly upon the Good People.  Sure, they’ll use our valuable resources and consume water and air that is provided to them free-of-charge by good taxpaying American suckers but when it comes time to pay the bill, they disappear into their tree houses and Holly Hobbie fake kitchens.  If they don’t have to pay taxes, why should good, hardworking folks like me have to?

Doesn’t the President have better things to do then spend 30 seconds of OUR time indulging the sick fantasies of these tax cheats?  In those wasted 30 seconds, he could have created thousands of new jobs.  Instead, he chose to play telephone with some “children”.  Those jobs aren’t coming back, Mr. President.  Not today, not tomorrow, not next week, not next year, not next century, not next epoch.  These are the times that try men’s souls!  We DEMAND answers, Barack Hussein Obama!

    But wait – you’ve only uncovered the telecommunications impact of this. The phone uses power from the car, which was most likely idling at the time. ZERO miles per gallon! Wasted fuel, wasted electricity, more pollutants, all to please a free-loading child. And what of the President himself? We’re paying him to WORK, not play phone-booth attendant. And his driver, And the Secret Service people. MORE wasting of precious time and money when the kid could have as much fun on his “See and Say”! Plus the congestion on YouTube to see the video, the wasted time and effort of all the news organisations in reporting this story……
    This child may very well have laid the cornerstone of the destruction of this country through waste! He may very well have added that last bit of pollution to tip the scales and through the globe into Global Warming! This child may very well have sealed the fate of Mankind itself!
    Now excuse me, it’s time for my medications…. 😉

    HA! Great reply, John! I appreciate you taking time away from your communist Central Committee meeting to post it.

      hey Hey HEY! I ain’t no stinkin’ Commie! I’m a Nazi, and I got the jackboots to prove it! 😉
      I did see another funny bit of satire, related to my “save the world” rant. Another blogger suggested that, in the spirit of true equal rights, we should provide “human meals” to the wild animals to make up for all the wild animals we’ve eaten. Not sure about that on a world-wide basis, but I’m all for it when they catch poachers on the African game preserves. Quick justice, no long term prison costs, and we keep the wild animals from starving! Quite “green”!

        Heck of an idea. I’ve always been big on the Soylent Green approach myself.

    I’m shocked. Shocked. That Rush himself didn’t uncover this liberal plot. OMG. It’s not enough that B. Hussein Obama makes trips to Podunk places like Joplin on Air Force One, draining America of its precious fluids (e.g, ethanol). Erickson has identified the big drain; the big O fritters away limousine fuel on ankle-biters. There is nothing this man won’t do to weaken this country. Oh the humanity.

      By the by, Jim, just so you know I’m not totally nuts (most of the way, but not totally), I did German World War 2 re-enacting for some years back in the 90s, before my health crashed. I’m NOT a Nazi in reality – I just played German soldiers (big difference in many cases). But I do have the jackboots, and a nice collection of US, UK, Canadian, and Polish militaria as well. (Yeah, I had problems sticking with one army.) So like I say, I’m not totally nuts, though the percentage of sanity is dropping fast! 😀

        Ah crud – I meant to add, you can call me John. Or Blackjack the Goat’s buddy – either one works!

    HA! Our “precious fluids”! Somewhere General Jack D. Ripper is smiling…..
