Dr. Seuss Looks at the Political Landscape

Just caught this on a friend’s Facebook page:

I do not like this Uncle Sam, I do not like his health care scam. I do not like these dirty crooks, or how they lie and cook the books. I do not like when Congress steals, I do not like their secret deals. I do not like ex-speaker Nan, I do not like this ‘YES WE CAN’..I do not like this spending spree, I’m smart, I know that nothing’s free. I do not like their smug replies, when I complain about their lies. I do not like this kind of hope. I do not like it. Nope, nope, nope!

To which I offered this rejoinder:

Did you write this on your own? Or did you post it as a loan? It is cute and wise and smart and short; about a plan we must abort. The government has grown too big, I say, in this and that and every way. We must reduce its size, my friend, or this great debt will never end!

When I was challenged about job creation, I then offered this:

And there are fewer jobs, I say, because the government keeps getting in the way. They increase the cost to hire and grow, the permit process is way too slow. Let’s trust the market, not the state; more spending fails at any rate. People know best how to run lives; that’s how new jobs come and our economy thrives.

FROM THE COMMENTS: Our reader Kurt helped track down the source of the first block quote above:

I found a version of it from March 2010 at this link. That seems to be the oldest one so far, as the others I found came from August or September of last year. That one also credits it as coming from facebook. The headers for this version date it to July 2009. Narrowing Google searches by date produced a number of postings from July and August 2009 on MySpace. I would guess it was probably first sent around via e-mail and posted on facebook around June 2009.

  3. You have to use simple words for liberals; they are children, after all.

  4. Thanks, Kurt!

    I’ll update the post accordingly. Didn’t have much time to blog today, so just put that up when the friend who had posted it said he got it from another friend!

  6. You will have to use simple words to tell the Libs their Democrat president compared himself to Martin Luther King, a REPUBLICAN!
