Our friends on the right have determined the only way to save the nation is to sacrifice the elderly to the Great God of Monitarism, and the sooner we do it, the sooner the stock market will bounce back from the abyss.
The philosophy of conservatism has always welcomed creative destruction. The law of the jungle requires the old and infirm to lag behind the herd to be devoured by the strong, thus maintaining the balance of nature.
How different they sound from the days when they howled about “death panels” and whined about that TV commercial where Paul Ryan pushes an old woman in a wheelchair off the cliff.
I have a feeling that when they talk about sacrifice, they aren’t talking about the upper crusted. Some of the elite will need to stick around to school the young and lead the nation until they have been sufficiently reeducated. Institutional knowledge and all.
So what do you say? Anybody up for an Easter egg hunt?
Let’s start on the White House lawn to set a good example.
