Posted on 03/15/2014 6:07:57 AM PDT by Kaslin
The official motto of the United States is In God We Trust.
The official motto of Washington, DC, is Justitia Omnibus, which means Justice for All.
These are nice statements, but they apply too broadly. We also should have a motto specifically for politicians. Something that captures the zeitgeist of our overlords in Washington.
I cant claim this is my idea.
Im pushing the concept after seeing a statement on Twitter that would be a perfect motto for the political crowd in DC. Feel free to come up with alternatives, but this one will be hard to beat.
Heck, it also could have been a replacement for Obamas unofficial campaign slogan.
Very similar, in spirit, to these great cartoons from Chuck Asay and Glenn McCoy.
And if you like mocking the political class, I have lots of other material for you to enjoy. You can read about how the men and women spend their time screwing us and wasting our money.
We also have some examples of what people in Montana, Louisiana, Nevada, and Wyoming think about big-spending politicians.
This little girl has a succinct message for our political masters, here are a couple of good images capturing the relationship between politicians and taxpayers, and here is a somewhat off-color Little Johnny joke.
Speaking of risqué humor, heres aportrayal of a politician and lobbyist interacting.
Returning to G-rated material, you can read about the blind rabbit who finds a politician. And everyone enjoys political satire, as can be found in these excerpts from the always popular Dave Barry.
Last but not least, lets not forgot to include this joke by doctors about the crowd in Washington.
P.S. The unofficial motto of DC, which can be found on license plates, is Taxation without Representation.
Im not overly sympathetic to this message because its part of a campaign to make the federal city into a state and we definitely dont need two more Senators with a vested interest in ever-expanding government.
But since Im always looking to find common ground, maybe we can strike a deal. The folks in Washington can have taxation with representation if theyre willing to let the rest of us choose no taxation and no representation.
Suffice to say Im not expecting many takers.
P.P.S. For what its worth, I think my license plate is better than the ones in DC.
May I suggest "BOHICA"?
Bend over, here it comes again.
Let them eat cake.
I prefer the Asian kid.
