Congress, will you please draft a new bill restricting the use of the terms “Socialist”, “Marxist”, “Communist” and “Dictator” to American citizens who are able to answer a few simple questions?
Question 1: Define each form of government, using common English words and not regional slang.
Question 2: Highlight the differences between each of these types of governments (the ones being bandied about so loosely).
Question 3: Exhibit a clear & prolific ability to use research tools such as Google and Yahoo to explore big words you might not fully understand. Use of the following search terms will make answers to this question null and void: “I hate Obama”, “Obama sucks”, “Fox News”, “Obama wants to kill my grandmother”, “Obama wants to take my guns”, “Palin for POTUS”, “Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi”, “Michelle Obama is starving the kids”, “racism is dead”, “what global warming?”, “keep the government out of my medicare”, “poor people are lazy and should just get a job”, “save the fetus, screw the rest” and/or “science is stupid (and so are women)”.
Question 4: Provide, in written outline, a flow chart of congressional bills and how they truly become law, paying particular attention to the role played by the House of Representatives and the United States Senate (if you aren’t familiar with these two bodies please refer back to question 3).
Question 5: Write a two page report on impeachment law (computer typed please; some of you may need to utilize spell check based upon your online posts).
And Congress, please include in your bill the legal consequences for failure to submit correct responses to the above five questions prior to Americans posting online.
Specifically, those unable to successfully complete questions 1-5 will be required to turn in their voting card to Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (this will just save time and money with regard to training someone else for the job) and unsuccessful applicants will also be required to return all electronic keyboards, tablets, and smart phones until such time as they can exhibit the knowledge and skills necessary to sustain an informed voting population.
The dumbing down of America is becoming embarrassing. Please do your part to save her from ignorance.
I think some of you are nuts.
