After the pathetic response atheists got to the White House petition to remove “Under God” from Pledge of Allegiance, you have to ask yourself, “Why even bother?”
If you feel the same way, I’ve got a new petition for you:
WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:Actually take these petitions seriously instead of just using them as an excuse to pretend you are listening
Although the ability to submit petitions directly to the White House is a noble and welcome new feature of the current administration, the first round of responses makes blatantly clear the White House intends to just support its current stances and explain them with responses everyone who has done any research already knows.
It needs another 10,000 or so votes by November 27th in order for the Obama administration to respond. (And I’m sure that response will be just as meaningful as the rest of them…)
At least it’s one way to let them know we’re unimpressed with their pseudo-outreach program.
