Moron Mail

When you get a tic and a Naderite in the same room together, the conversation goes esentially like this:

TIC: How can you support Nader? He'll end up getting the Repuglican selected not elected again. Workers of the world unite! Patcouli! I don't shave my armpits!

NADERITE: Corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate corporate!

I have made my disgust at the misuse and abuse of the word "corporation" and all its variants known for sometime now. It's an annoying mixture of ignorance, smugness and anti-capitalism, and it makes me throw up just a little everytime I hear one of these neo-commies misuse that word.

All a corporation really is is a legal fiction meant to mitigate some of the personal risks inherent in engaging in business and industry. Of course, the Naderites won't use "business and industry" when referring to their intended target of derision, because some people might think to themselves "Hey - I'm employed by business and industry. If this jerk off gets what he wants, I'll be unemployed!" Very counterproductive for the Naderites' purposes. However, the word "corporate" is an ugly, curt word that evokes a visceral recollection of how some drone down at "corporate" once screwed up your time sheet, and you had to spend the next 3 weeks calling the wrong person to fix a problem that they "show no record of".

So, like I said. These people are either dumb, or they're brilliant propagandists.

From now on, whenever a Naderite or other moonbat debases the word "corporation", I will invoke the image of Inigo Montoya, who once famously remarked "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means," thusly:




Hey - whaddya know? - a letter from a Naderite:

A Feb. 5 Star Tribune editorial claimed that Ralph Nader "undermines the democratic process" by running as an independent, anticorporate



candidate and refusing to join the Democratic Party.

The reality is that it's the two major parties in this country that undermine the democratic process by excluding all independent voices who seek to challenge their monopoly on power and the corporate




domination of our political system. In 2000, the Democrats and Republicans colluded to exclude Ralph Nader from the debates even though a majority of Americans said they wanted him in them. In 2004, the Democratic Party and its supporting organizations spent tens of millions of dollars on lawsuits to keep Nader off the ballot in a vain attempt to ensure that voters would have to vote for their prowar [???????? --ed.] candidate John Kerry.

The editorial also claims that Nader would have been able to have a major influence if he had given a national convention keynote at the Democratic National Convention, like Barack Obama in 2004. There's no chance that the Democrats would ever, in a million years, allow Nader, who earned his reputation by attacking corporate




interests -- the very same interests that provide the majority of funding to the Democratic Party -- to give a keynote speech at their convention.

There's nothing funny about the prostitution of our political system to big corporations.



I sincerely hope that Ralph Nader will again run for president to provide a voice to those fed up with corporate



power, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the $500 billion military budget, the criminal injustice system [oh, SNAP! --ed.] and racist war on drugs, and the enormous gaps between rich and poor in this country. If he doesn't run, big business [er, don't you mean "big corporations"? --ed.] and their two-party system will be laughing all the way to the bank.

Change? Who the hell said they wanted Change?

Furthermore, people keep using that word and I don't think it means what they think it means, since they seem to think that Change means lots of empty white space.
