Dignity

Quiet for a second....Did you hear that? Real faint sound.

You know what that is? Listen close.

That's your dignity coming back. Dig?

Attention scofflaws, indigents, millstones, all you lazy larcenous bastards out there who have spent literally years gaming the system from the hard working American taxpayer and that includes you old and sick people, well there is a new sheriff in town. Welcome to the Church of Trump. Know that ye have been judged and you are guilty cheaters until you can prove otherwise.


The Director of the Office of Management and Budget is ready to save you from yourselves. Mike Mulvaney is about to kick your good for nothing butts right off the American dole. And you are going to love him for it. Maybe not right now and maybe not in this lifetime but somewhere down the road in this world or in heaven, this will be the dude to thank. Because you will have your dignity back.
“We need people to go to work,” Mulvaney said. “If you’re on food stamps and you’re able-bodied, we need you to go to work. If you’re on disability insurance and you’re not supposed to be, you're not truly disabled, we need you to go back to work. There’s a dignity to work. There’s a necessity to work to help the country succeed, and we need everybody to be pulling in the same direction.”
Besides smiting the poor, the budget does a lot of other swell stuff. Not just quash the budget for climate change, who didn't see that coming, but a whole host of things. NIH, Cancer research, Centers for Disease Control, FDA, all that fluffy stuff. Gone.

It all may go to hell in a hand basket but at least we will have our dignity back and be able to once again look at our no good asses in the mirror. Bless you.
