Every Member of Our Ruling Class in Congress and the Executive Branch…

should be stripped of all personal wealth they have accrued since election (beyond the salary of office) and it should be distributed to these men and women and their widows and orphans.  They must also relinquish their home to these men and women, mortgage and tax free forever.

Then each member of our Ruling Class should be forced, at gunpoint and in perpetuity, to lick clean their boots each day.  If the vets are legless due to the feckless orders of our criminal Ruling Class sending them into harms way, they should instead be forced to lick clean their toilets.

Any member of our Ruling Class who resists or objects should be immediately sent to a battlefield as a minesweeper or a toilet cleaner.  He or she should be left there until our troops are brought home and reunited with their families.  If there is resistance to this, they should be tried for treason and given life in prison.

Only members of the Ruling Class who have served should be considered eligible for exemption, but even these (such as John McCain or John Kerry) who have parlayed their service record into a platform for launching reckless wars, should be subjected to the punishments prescribed above until our troops are brought home and our vets have adequate care, work, and housing.

All living members of past administrations and Congress should be subject to the same punishments and confiscations of personal wealth beyond salary of office.

    I did a little pro bono work for a family here in DC in just this situation – very similar, too – elderly black man owned a home, but was a little scattered, ignorant of the tax requirements, had passed away not paying the taxes – and his daughter was stuck trying to frantically save her home.

    Fortunately we were able to get her set up with an attorney who specializes in this before the final deadline. But it was sickening to know that others were not so lucky, and that we were only able to help her save her house because she had the initiative to come in for the pro bono clinic that weekend. The law needs to be changed. Pronto. This is the very definition of “unjust.”

      Indeed. A friend of mine commented on the article thus: “Greedy usurers using faceless bureaucratic machinery to rob the poor of what little they have? That can never happen in a country as just as America.”

    Nothing new under the sun; life is just not fair! This has been done for a long time, even at the international level. Here is a link to a BBC documentary from early 2010. Please, please, before dismissing this comment, take the time to watch the video included in that newscast. This is one of the ways large fortunes are made nowadays.

    On the trail of the vultures picking over Liberia’s debt
    And I have seen another story about the same thing happening in one of the Congos. Poor countries are as vulnerable as poor people…
    On another note: We do need to pray, not only for the poor people being victimized in yet another way, but for the financiers getting rich in that way. This is one place where new evangelization is particularly needed, but I have no idea how one could go about it. How to convince people apparently drunk from their own power that “what good is it to win the world if you lose your soul”? When they find out, let’s hope it is not too late for them; Jesus died for them too.

    It seems that the link did not copy well. Here is it again:

    Yes, as through this world I’ve wandered
    I’ve seen lots of funny men;
    Some will rob you with a six-gun,
    And some with a fountain pen.

    And as through your life you travel,
    Yes, as through your life you roam,
    You won’t never see an outlaw
    Drive a family from their home.

    – Woody Guthrie
