I have received this from the 9-12 Military Post.

How’s this for apocalyptic literature? This was written
by a pastor's wife in biblical prose as a commentary
of current events. As Yul Brunner proclaimed as Pharoah, "So let it be written, so let it be done!!"

And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the
people of the land called America , having lost their
morals, their initiative, and their will to defend their
liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that person
known as "The One".
He emerged from the vapors with a message that had
no meaning; but He hypnotized the people telling them,
"I am sent to save you. My lack of experience, my
questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my assoc-
citation with evil doers are of no consequence. For I
shall save you with Hope and Change.
Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the land that
he who preceded me is evil, that he has defiled the
nation, and that all he has built must be destroyed."
And the people rejoiced, for even though they knew
not what "The One" would do, he had promised
that it was good; and they believed.

And "The One" said "We live in the greatest country
in the world. Help me change everything about it!"
And the people said, "Hallelujah! Change is good!"

Then He said, "We are going to tax the rich fat-cats."
And the people said "Sock it to them!"
"And redistribute their wealth."
And the people said, "Show us the money!"
And then He said, "Redistribution of wealth is good
for everybody"

And Joe the plumber asked, "Are you kidding me?
You're going to steal my money and give it to the
deadbeats??" And "The One" ridiculed and taunted
him, and Joe's personal records were hacked and

One lone reporter asked, "Isn't that Marxist policy?"
And she was banished from the kingdom!

Then a citizen asked, "With no foreign relations
experience and having zero military experience or
knowledge, how will you deal with radical terrorists?"

And "The One" said, "Simple. I shall sit with them and
talk with them and show them how nice we really are;
and they will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!"

And the people said, "Hallelujah!! We are safe at last,
and we can beat our weapons into free cars for the

Then "The One" said, "I shall give 95% of you lower

And one, lone voice said, "But 40% of us don't pay
ANY taxes."

So "The One" said, "Then I shall giv e you some of the
taxes the fat-cats pay!"

And the people said, "Hallelujah!! Show us the money!"

Then "The One" said, "I shall tax yo ur Capital Gains
when you sell your homes!"

An d the people yawned and the slumping housing
market collapsed.

And He said, "I shall mandate employer- funded health
care for EVERY worker and raise the minimum wage.
And I shall give every person unlimited health care and
medicine and transportation to the clinics."

And the people said, "Give me some of that!"

Then he said, "I shall penalize employers who ship
jobs overseas."

And the people said, "Where's my rebate check?"

Then "The One" said, "I shall bankrupt the coal
industry and electricity rates will skyrocket!"

And the people said, "Coal is dirty, coal is evil, no
more coal! But we don't care for that part about higher
electric rates."

So "The One" said, "Not to worry. If your rebate isn't
enough to cover your expenses, we shall bail you out.
Just sign up with ACORN and your troubles are over!"

Then He said, "Illegal immigrants feel scorned and
slighted. Let's grant them amnesty, Social Security,
free education, free lunches, free medical care, bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing..."

And the people said, "Hallelujah!!" And they made
him King!

And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling
costs and ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid
off workers. Others simply gave up and went out of
business and the economy sank like unto a rock Adropped from a cliff. The banking industry was des-
toyed. Manufacturing slowed to a crawl. And more of
the people were without a means of support.

Then "The One" said, "I am the "The One" - The
Messiah - and I'm here to save you! We shall just print
more money so everyone will have enough!"

But our foreign trading partners said unto Him, "Wait
a minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung!
You will have to pay more..."

And the people said, "Wait a minute. That is unfair!!"

And the world said, "Neither are these other idiotic
programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become
a Socialist state and a second-rate power. Now you
shall play by our rules!"

And the people cried out, "Alas, alas!! What have we

But yea verily, it was too late. The people set upon
"The One" and spat upon him and stoned him, and his
name was dung. And the once mighty nation was
no more; and the once proud people were without
sustenance or shelter or hope. And the Change "The
One" had given them was as like unto a poison that
had destroyed them and like a whirlwind that consumed
all that they had built.

And the people beat their chests in despair and cried
out in anguish, “Give us back our nation and our pride
and our hope!!" But it was too late, and their homeland
was no more.
