Mr. Pissed Goes to Washington, by xrugger

This is a great demonstration of the art form known as the rant. From xrugger at theburningplatform.com:

I’ve been thinking a great deal lately, about what I might say if I were given the opportunity to give the State of the Union address, not as President, but just as a citizen. Let’s give it a go.

My fellow Americans, as I look around this chamber, I see a few people that a thinking person might consider worthy of a modicum of respect and possibly even a few with some degree of integrity and honor remaining despite their years of service to this government. I say “to this government” deliberately and with the distinct intention to offend because I believe that this chamber, with very few exceptions, is indeed in service to this government, not in service to this nation. Essentially, what I’m saying is you are all douchebags to one degree or another.

I see in the front row, the currently serving members of the Supreme Court…somebody wake Ginsburg up, she needs to hear this. Thanks Clarence. Now, where was I…oh yeah…I wanted to say a few words about the judicial form of douchebaggery.

You sit here now only because in the early days of the Republic, the travesty of Marbury vs. Madison bestowed upon your predecessors unwarranted power and prerogatives initially dangerous and ultimately destructive to liberty. The history of the Court is a litany of encroachment, overreach, and judicial hubris. You have arrogated to yourselves the supposed ultimate authority to dictate to a free people what their founding documents really meant rather than what they really said. In your arrogance, you assume that the citizenry will always submissively accept whatever legal abominations are unleashed upon them by nine black-robed busybodies. I warn you that such a state of affairs cannot last forever. You are not the final arbiters of the nation’s fate.

I see also in attendance, many high-ranking members of the military services and law enforcement. Be assured there will be no slavish adulation directed your way during these comments. As an ex-military man myself, I understand the usually honorable tendency of the people to hold the military and police in high regard. However, let us not forget that the very idea of a standing army was anathema to the Founders as was the concept of a pervasive, over-armed, and aggressive police authority.

  1. Ah yes, by the way has the republic ever not had an army or navy or law enforcement? The founders were so against the concept of a standing army they enshrined it in the Constitution developing armories, naval yards, and standing, professional military bodies.

    Too bad the same folks who rage against the military and law enforcement are so comfortable with the EPA, OSHA, and the legions of regulators, IRS officers, and the like which we all know the Funding Fathers loved and adored.
