Mayberry R.F.D.

Spin off of Andy Griffith Show, with Gomer PyleSome of y’all might not remember what the RFD part means. It’s Rural Free Delivery, an incentive to keep the constitutionally mandated (ratified by congress) postal service available to the people who really need it the most. The “Heartland” the Wreligious Wrong like to pander, butter up, and basically abuse their name image and philosophies every election cycle. The ones their Corporate Masters have just abandoned by closing their local post offices as “not cost effective” and their Privatized “Texas Miracle” alternatives like UPS and FedEx aren’t going to serve. They say it’s “Socialism” to provide a service based on need rather than greed, and you know what? It IS.
 
And it’s one of the reasons Oklahoma was a “Red” state in the truest sense of the word, as in Communist, in the ’32, ’36, and ’40 elections. Henry Fonda, often criticized by the Right Wing Lunatic Fringe like Bachmann, Beck, Palin… for his role in the movie adaptation of Grapes of Wrath, an almost realistic portrayal of what the Corporate Theft which led to the Dust Bowl and the Depression were about, was unlike the current crop of Right Wing presidential or gubernatorial or senatorial or congressional candidates or the Propaganda Pulpit that defends their actions, was a war hero. So was Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger. And, according the House Un-American Activities Committee, so were thousands of decorated World War Two veterans. Wouldn’t know it to hear pimple-in-the-asshole Rush Limbaugh tell it. Or anybody directly or ideologically connected to Fox News.

But, yeah, the idea of financing something simply because it’s Needed, that IS a left wing thing. So is recognition of the fact that the phrase “Am I my brothers keeper?” was the really lame defense of the very first fratricide.

So, let’s see the Right WingNutz go without something THEY need, which really benefits only the Wealthy? Socialism v. Socialite-ism, head to head in a Russian Cage Match (rasslin’). Cut off their Military expenditures and their police and courts which they and only they own. If they want to have protection of their stolen hoards, or to have other countries looted for their benefit, let the sorry lazy Rich Bastards and their Mommas do it themselves.

We don’t need Government services? Well, God-damn it, neither do they, then.

If they don’t like the idea of actually paying THEIR way, or me pointing it out, then they can all just line up and take turns helping themselves to a Texas sized all-you-can-eat buffet of Kiss My Liberal Ass.
