The children keep complaining to me that trendy politically correct east coast political bosses used hard earned taxpayer money to conduct wars against little children who drink soda pop, ordinary overtaxed parents who cannot afford to dine in expensive restaurants, but who insist on seasoning their foul-tasting obesity causing Government developed Frankinfoods with salt, peaceful entrepreneurial upstate Indians who sell gasoline and tobacco products to White women and men for LESS - along with the taxpayer funded harassment of their customers, including the transfer of hard earned laundered taxpayer money to Big Media for the purpose of perpetrating the tax-generating "secondhand smoke" myth - and the now developing war against the hated toilet paper users.

The kids ask that, while such take-no-prisoner wars against ordinary hard working taxpayers provide plenty of opportunity for publicity generating "photo-shoots" by Big Political Bosses to be used as "news fillers" by the Government licensed "news" media, shouldn't that money have been used to prepare to minimize the damage caused by large storms and their aftermath that are KNOWN to periodically hit the northeast coastal region?

I always ask the children if their questions are intended to be merely rhetorical, to which they invariably reply "yes".

I explain to my little environmentally conscience friends some of the results of this shortsighted expenditure of scarce taxpayer resources. I give them the example sewage plants that have been discharging billions of gallons of partially treated human waste into waters near New York City, including the waters around the Statue of Liberty. In fact, just one treatment plant, the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission plant has reportedly pumped more than three billion gallons of untreated or partially treated waste-water into local waterways since Sandy hit the area.

I tell the kids that, while this is a positive development for the taxpayer funded Government controlled medical industry, it is bad for the image of old fashioned 19th century concept "brick and mortar" towns such as "Liberal" New York City.

Please stop tormenting those poor kids you keep reffering to. If you try talking that nonsense to my kids you would end up covered in egg yolks from head to toe to car to house. Haha my kids egged your whole house and car and face.

Yes. I agree. The little tykes who have fallen victim to the incredibly expensive taxpayer funded Government "education" system can be very dangerous when confronted with ideologies foreign to those which Big Government has instilled into their little minds. I only discuss more weighty matters with the "well-behaved and civilized" home-schooled little folks.

According to the latest ever changing Big Government "health guidelines", every egg you mischievous "Government educated" kids use to terrorize the hard working minority of Americans who pay taxes could be incubated and thereafter turned into a free-range chicken that would improve the health of ALL Americans, and thereby, serve to reduce Government controlled children's health insurance premiums.

Yes. I agree. Considering how quickly Big Government has established its obesity causing Frankinfoods in our Government controlled food supply, it won't be long before pink "cage fed" chicken slime ooze milkshakes are a required component of the expensive taxpayer funded Government school slop lunch program.

Yes. Good point. It's as though the earth is a self-regenerating, self-healing living organism.

Food fads have been a part of the American scene ever since before the nation's founding. Usually those food fads did little damage because "the people" soon grew tired of them. This resulted in those fads being short lived. Now that Big Government has gotten in on the act UNDER PENALTY OF LAW! for purposes of increased taxation and control, though, no one knows how much damage will be done.

Because of the aforementioned wars against "the people" that resulted in the misallocation of hard earned taxpayer money, millions of rats drowned in the the aged New York City subway system. Although it is not widely known, the city's trendy Government licensed Big Restaurant industry has been acting to forestall liability as a result of some future decision of the capricious Big Government legal system.

Anticipating a future ex post facto legal decision that might impose monetary awards on those restaurants that neglected to add protein to their "healthy" "Big Government approved" Frankinlettuce and bean sprout sandwiches, wealthy Government licensed restaurant owners paid the city's street people to trap rats in the city's dank "killer mold" saturated underground.

With the rat supply depleted, the self-regenerating earth - in its infinite wisdom - is now providing easily obtained floating "protean rich" matter throughout the city's waterways, especially the harbor area.

Yes. The little "aware" children who enjoy the benefit of home schooling often comment on their adult Government schooled peers' absorption with feetsball. They discuss Orwell's Big Government "2 minute hate" assemblies. The little folks ask if absorption in feetsball doesn't serve the purpose of an outlet to work off frustrations inherent with total Government control of the overtaxed individual?

I always tell them "of course". I act as facilitator to explain that the restless energy expended rooting for "their team" as well as railing against "the other" team serves to harmlessly expend pent up energies that would otherwise be used to threaten the continuation of total Big Government rule.
