Grand Old Drawbridge Party (GOD) Now Challenged by People Engaged for Equitable Processes (PEEPS) Renamed GOD. Grand Old Drawbridge Party. Up the Drawbridge!

News Release:

GOP, now renamed Grand Old Drawbridge Party (mass-produced)

Ups the Drawbridge, 
Refusing to Budge on Budget 
or Debt Ceiling (itself probably an unconstitutional limit)

May Find Themselves Marooned, say PEEPs
(Not the Easter type)

Free Thinkers Outside the Moat Prepare Strategies of Circumvention.

People Engaged for Equitable Processes (PEEPs)

Dint News Services.  Dateline 2011.  For immediate release.

The Grand Old Party has renamed itself The Grand Old Drawbridge Party, to celebrate the successful duping of the American ordinary populace into thinking that government spending is the problem; rather than the imbalance of spending vs. revenues for real needs.  The Members are, even now, holding their convention at Bodiam, England, and have brought their own crocodiles to keep the peasants out.

This G.O.D., the Grand Old Drawbridge Party, specializes in grotesque illogic, and has drafted as its primary platform the following logical impossibility: 
  • That spending to foster opportunity is never authorized ideologically
  • That no spending is authorized ideologically if it means taking a dime more, 
    • from those who have been enabled to hoard maximally, 
    • after 12 years of gluttony and tax breaks
    • at the expense of the millions who are now job-deprived.
  • That increasing revenue is never the solution for meeting needs outside the immediate bloodline. 
  • That increasing revenue for a common good is never good, whether
    • by tax reversion (tax reversion is not a tax increase) or increasing social security cap on earnings, 
    • or proposing that estates over $3,000,000 escheat (limits to inheritance entitlement)
Instead, the GOD proclaims, despite its nonpayment of national bills for over a decade,
  • Up the Drawbridge! 
  • The Family is Safe!  That is, Our Particular Family is safe!  Thank you, Washington and citizens cowed over years, for turning us into moguls.
  • The Heir is Safe! 
  • The Nobles or Noble Wannabes and those who inherit rather than work are Safe! 
  • Raise the Drawbridge! 
  • We, the truly and palely entitled, thank you for our over twelve years of accumulations, profit-taking, income aggrandizing in huge proportions.
  • We are safe.  Let our gratitude sustain you.
  • So be it. Now, may we suggest for your next vacation:  Montenegro.

The budget model is from Montenegro, reports the party chairperson . Ostrog Monastery. Monks fleeing the Ottomans. Asked why such an unassailable height, the chairperson notes that the GOD must now now flee those they continue to fleece. In the pipeline for the coming year:  revised ladders of opportunity, all lower seven rungs removed. 

2012 convention site has been outsourced, and includes parking for the idiocy buses anticipated.

However, those outside the moats are themselves organizing for effective circumvention of the self-proclaimed GODs.

PEEPs, People Engaged for Equitable Processes report record recruiting numbers.

This has been spurred largely by an email intended only for distribution secretly among the for the GODs, showing the fun of starving parents economically and so they cannot say boo even if they wanted to. No infrastructure!  No education!  No healthcare!

Now, climb that ladder! Say the entitled ones inside the drawn drawbridge.

Don't mind if we do, say the PEEPs, as they gather in their sophisticated Adirondack chairs back on the farm, and are planning for the entire country's benefit, not just their own.  We await the President's Speech:  The PEEPs Ace in the Hole.

Hunh, says Rove.  That's silly.

So, who prevails:  The Rovecashonometer, or the PEEPs.


We offer, O ye voters,  sustainable and moral coexistence, mutual benefits, say the peasants. To accomplish such, we have a few things up our sleeves including Follow Where the Path May Lead; Leaders Do That In Wise Governance, see issues at l

Our peasant platform:  Increase revenue when real needs require. Meanwhile, you, the miniminds with maxiassets,  are stuck in your countinghouses; scared of us; while we enjoy the great outdoors.
