No one, and I do mean NO one, does political satire today quite like ReasonTV’s Remy. His efforts this time combine two major recent headlines, and he makes an inescapable (and deeply troubling) point.

Welcome to the new United States of America, where a people “of the government, by the government, for the government“, shall not perish from this earth:

  1. I’m sorry. I know it’s satire, JTR, but I just couldn’t laugh. If anything it gave me a sense of profound sadness.
    *sigh*
    How far this country has fallen.

    Maybe, I’m just too sour today for humor. You are right though, Remy is one the best talents around today. For that, it’s worth a like.
    Happy Flag Day, while we still have a flag.

    • I understand, Bret.

      It’s tragic and infuriating, no question. But that’s why the Remys of the world are so important: to break through with humor and catch people’s attention.

      Plus, you and I need a laugh occasionally, …even a wry one…

  2. I have become very pessimistic and cynical about things.

  3. the old curmudgeon

    I’m thinking of teaching classes in pessimism and cynicism. Not to mention curmudgeonliness!

  5. I wish I could say this was funny the fact that there can even be satire about the VA makes it more sad than anything.

    • I know, James.

      It was certainly funny, but in a bittersweet way that kicks you in the gut, rather than really laugh…….
      That’s also what makes it so effective, of course.

    We need MORE folks to understand that our Government no longer serves the people, only itself. That administrators at the VA got MILLIONS in bonuses as a result of “cooking the books” is an OUTRAGE, that remains “no big thing” to far too many.

    “Keep ’em dumb. Keep ’em high. Keep promoting class warfare. Keep encouraging racial rifts. Keep a check coming.” There! The 2016 Democrat Platform.
