The "B-attitudes" in the White House

Blessed are the Peacemakers, for you shall invade and conquer all nations.

Blessed is the Homeland Security, for what is done in secret shall be protected from judicial review.

Blessed are the Politicians, for unto you is opened the door to the wealth of corporations.

Blessed are the Nuclear Experts, for the “Bunker Buster” gives hope for the destruction of all opposition to the path of capitalism and you shall be rewarded greatly with an early retirement with free psychological counseling.

Blessed are the Needy for you shall be neglected and your vote forgotten.

Blessed is the Small Businessman, for you shall be taxed and have no time to find the facts.

Blessed are the Educators, for your classes will increase, your tax credits removed and few will learn the path to empowerment and choice.

Blessed are the Workers for Humanity, for you shall be overwhelmed and underfunded.

Blessed are the Super Rich, when men speak evil of you for inventing new loopholes, avoiding taxes and creating NAFTA jobs overseas instead of at home for Uncle Sam will protect your assets and you shall no longer be known as the Sons of Greed.

Blessed are the Retired, for your accumulated wealth shall fund the War on Terrorism.

Reif Erickson
