Funny, Sad and Soulless Politicians: VOTB

Posted in Politics, Vote Out The Bums at 5:44 am by Administrator

For a joke to be funny there must be an element of truth. Several political jokes have made the rounds on the Internet lately. These are soulfully truthful, funny and sad.

These jokes are funny because they hit at the soul of the corrupt politician. Like the Olympic Gold Medal won by the Chinese gymnast that landed on her knees, so is today’s politician – laughable. They are nothing but airhead fronts for big money and their ideas. Two of the presidential candidates are classic examples.

McCain has trouble deciding which of the seven (7) houses he owns to sleep in every night. Many American citizens would like to own just one. Obama isn’t doing to the least of his brothers (the one in Africa), but wants to represent his American brothers on the world stage. Where is Obama’s path out of poverty for his own biological brother let alone needy brothers in American families?

This first joke indicates the baseline inners of the soulless, corrupt politician. Politicians are nothing more than hollow puppets for hire.

Five surgeons from big cities are discussing who makes the best patients to operate on.

The first surgeon, from New York, says, “I like to see accountants on my operating table because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered.”

The second, from Chicago, responds, “Yeah, but you should try electricians! Everything inside them is color coded.”

The third surgeon, from Dallas, says, “No, I really think librarians are the best, everything inside them is in alphabetical order.”

The fourth surgeon, from Los Angeles chimes in: “You know, I like construction workers. Those guys always understand when you have a few parts left over.”

But the fifth surgeon, from Washington, DC shut them all up when he observed: “You’re all wrong. Politicians are the easiest to operate on. There’s no guts, no heart, no balls, no brains and no spine, and the head and the butt are interchangeable.”

Politicians spoken of in the joke are puppets dancing on the strings of money. They are soulless without humanity, convictions or common sense.

Unfortunately, the more hollow the politician, the more corrupt. They have the knack for winning elections because they don’t care where they get campaign money. (Can anyone said Clinton and China without smiling cash?) They condone election fraud when it benefits them. They become powerful on the hill through a system of seniority. Hollow, vacant and gutless politicians are the truth behind the surgeon’s joke. They would never go for three simple political reforms.

A ban on all advertisement would begin to counter the money advantage. A candidate would only be allowed to campaign in live venues. Time and energy of the candidate would be the limiting factor. (Sorry McCain) Time and energy are incorruptible.

Election fraud could be eliminated with precinct computers and printouts. Voters would use a computer to cast their votes. The computer would print three copies of the voters’ choices. The printouts would have a long identifying number indicating the date, time of day, precinct identifier and computer identifier. One printout would be given to the election officials. Another printout would be given to a non-profit watchdog group. The voter would keep the last printout. This triple proof would begin to guarantee fraud-less ballad counting for elections. The cost of such a system would be equivalent to one day at war in the Middle East!

The congressional seniority system needs to be changed to the most-qualified system. To be eligible for public office a candidate must have taken college credits covering a variety of applicable subject matter. (How many airline pilots or doctors work without degrees?) Once in public office, politicians must earn continuing education credits like all other professionals.

Congressional committee leaders must be the most qualified, not the oldest and least competent. Resumes, qualifying letters and interviews with a cross section of private industry experts affected by the specific committee would determine who gets chosen for committee leadership roles.

If we don’t institute these types of political reform, soulless politicians will continue to do what they do best. See the “2-story outhouse” picture below. The top sign says Politicians. The bottom sign says Voters.

Vote Out The (soulless) Bums: VOTB – every incumbent, every election until we get real governance reform.

Pass on the VOTB idea. Be like Paris and shop. The VOTB Store is open.

P.s. The real reason that we cannot post the Ten Commandments (“You Thou Shalt Not Steal”, “Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery”, and “Thou Shall Not Lie”) in a courthouse building full of lawyers, judges and politicians is because they create a hostile work environment.
