For a Limited Time Only!

 

O say does that war-tangled Bannon yet prey

o’er the Land of the Free Gift with Purchase!

and the home of the KKK?

 

Where Congress shall make no law respecting

an establishment of religion,

with the exception of the Almighty LORD Dollar

 

In this God we trust

 

that all men are created equal

And therefore, the only way to keep more than you deserve

is to cheat

with loopholes that aren’t just good. They’re grrrrrrrrreat!

 

How do you spell tax relief for the rich?

 

My oppressor has a first name

It’s G-R-E-E-D.

 

My oppressor has a second name

It’s gross inequity.

 

Exploititol® is not for everyone.

 

Side effects may include receding shorelines, permanent species loss,  toxic rivers, loss of mountaintops, fallen forests, increased global temperature, military bloating, wage slavery, bank bailouts, corporate welfare, police brutality, mass shootings, mass incarceration, opioid addiction, life-threatening legislation, and more frequent rumination.

 

Talk to your doctor

if you experience

liberal heart-bleeding

or thoughts of insurrection

as these may be signs of a more serious sedition.

 

But wait! There’s more!

 

Nuclear operators are standing by,

and 15 minutes couldn’t save you,

or anyone that you love.

 

Can you hear me now?

 

Good.

 

Because our chance to SAVE BIG!

ends soon.

 

For a limited time only

can acquiescence be shattered.

 

For a limited time only

we may yet avert the worst.

 

For a limited time only

we have breath in our bodies.

 

 

Act. Now.
