Having obtained an audience with the King. The Ingenious Patriot pulled a paper from his pocket, saying, “May it please your Majesty. I have a formula for constructing armor-plating which no gun can pierce. If these plates, are fitted to the ships of the Royal Navy. Your warships will be become invulnerable, and therefore invincible.”
Here also, are reports from of your Majesty’s Ministers attesting to the value of the invention. They are available to your Majesty for a million tumtums.”
After examining the papers, the King put them away. And promised, him payment from the Lord High Treasurer of the Extortion for a million tumtums.
And here, said the Ingenious Patriot, “Pulling another piece of paper from another pocket. Are the working plans of a gun that I have invented that will pierce that armor.
Your Majesty’s Royal brother of Bang is anxious to purchase my newest invention. But my loyalty to your Majesty’s throne, constrains me to offer it to your Majesty. The price is one million tumtums.”
Having received the promise of another check. He thrust his hand into still another pocket. Remarking, “That the price of the irresistible gun would have been much greater. But for the fact that its missiles can be so effectively averted by my particular method of treating the armor plates with new …..”
The King signaled to the Great Head Factotum to approach.
“Search this man,” he ordered, “Report to me how many pockets he has. Forty three Sire,” said the Great Head Factotum, completing the search.
May it please your Majesty, cried the Ingenious Patriot; in terror. “One of them contains tobacco.”
Hold him by his ankles, and shack him,” said the King. “Then give him a check for forty two million tumtums. Then put him to death.”
“Let a decree be issued declaring ingenuity a capital offense.” Source: Ambrose Bierce-“Ingenious Patriot.”
Such is the way of Americanism, as its politicians declaring the other party guilty of capital offenses. Because at one time they were spending the public’s money, so they thought in ingenious ways. With the party with the most power hell bent on putting to death their political opponents. That is the trick of the trade and it’s exactly how Americanism bilks Americans. With the Republicans in control of the House, Senate, Supreme Court and the White House, Watch various ingenious patriots approach Trump with their fraudulent spending schemes. Until it becomes necessary to replace new with the old, and on spins the endless spinning wheel. And so it is, with their tricks of the trade, masterfully designed to bilk Americans.The spending cycle will take on a different face, but it’s a masquerade.
So with government deficit spending done by both parties for decades. Done without much concern about political penalty because such shenanigans has become the politicians way. And at the expense, of the American taxpayer. You can see it can’t you? As elitism once again gathers its ingenious patriots, to rescue America with their own fraudulent schemes.
Donald Trump lost the majority vote for the office of the presidency. He was aided by hacking schemes of the Russian government which successfully swayed the election in Trump’s favor.
Now you Trump voters got your work cut out for you. By making sure Trump fulfills his promises to you. Because as things stand now, republicanism and Trumpism sees the public as their servants. With all three branches functioning, as your masters. This new government headed by Trump will reign in foolish spending. Trump and his republican colleagues see foolish spending in the realm of the public good. Because money spent on the public good, retards profits for the nations corporate conglomerates. Along with elitist, who are called investors. Their bottom line is, do as little for you, as possible. So as much, as possible can bulge their financial and social portfolios.
Is there such a thing, as political correctness? Absolutely! It’s essences is found in the many truths Jesus dropped along the way to confront his executioners, who consisted of both political and religious authorities. Saying, “Remember the word that I said unto you. The servant (for our purpose, politicians) is not greater than his lord (the electorate and enshrined in our Declaration of Independence, as, “… Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed ….”). If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you …,” John 15:20. And today, most religious authorities are bedfellows with the political community. So if change is to occur, it’s going to be nasty and bloody. Because the servant, isn’t going to surrender to his master willingly.
And by now, one would hope that no one believes change occurs at the ballot box. That’s just the shenanigans of those ingenious patriots using their tricks of their trade to bilk Americans, once again.
Oh! What tales of truth fables tell. Because they are designed to reveal different applications geared to the readers experiences. Back track in memory to those pockets jammed with countless papers, as the scores of ingenious patriots peddle their different wares to trick and bilk us. And no doubt, if you are a working person. desperate just to make a living, most will conclude, it’s a capital offense.
And so, you voted for Trump! Now hold him to his promises. And don’t expect help from us, who saw, Trump for what he is, an elitist opportunist. Trump is the ultimate ingenious patriot.
