Gordon Hilgers

Gordon Hilgers
Dallas, Texas, United States
July 22
Born in Denver, Colorado, 1950s-era capitol of the Beat scene, Gordon Hilgers was exiled to Dallas, Texas, in 1963, and Dallasites were so angry that another 9-year-old Democrat had entered the city that they killed Kennedy. From there, Gordon began writing poems and stories, eventually received a BA degree in newswriting, has written for The Dallas Morning News, despite the fact he was far too Liberal for the likes of William F. Murchison and John Birch, worked as an advocacy journalist and is partly responsible for the City of Dallas' public homeless shelter--where poor people can go to find jobs rather than getting told that because they've forgotten to embrace Jesus that God made them homeless.

I’ll ask it again: Does Paul Ryan need a nose job?  It’s pretty big.  He looks like a buzzard.  Maybe he can use his government-provided insurance. 

Yup.  That’s right.  Our Congresspeople have the option of getting a really nice government healthcare insurance plan, but Paul Ryan wants to take a less good government healthcare insurance plan from poor, elderly and disabled people.

Why?  Because he’s an agent of the Big Business community, and the healthcare insurance industry is at CODE RED over the possibility that they “sacred” CEOs might have to lose their 38 room mansions with 50 toilets.

Poor puppies. 

We can’t have that!  Our healthcare insurance CEOs need to live in luxury so they can be like J.R. of the famed schlockfest “Dallas”!

Tea Party?  Get ready to rock for the plutocracy!

Next thing you know, we’re gonna have Teabillies in front to the White House, all of them packing semi-automatic weapons “to send a message”, and the police, unlike the way they’ve wholeheartedly treated the Occupy protesters, will stand back and smile.  Yeah, buddy!  Now that their Queen Bee, Paul Ryan, has been selected by Romney Schmomney as his VP pick, they’re gonna have to run around the block in utter rage, all of them wearing their Revolutionary war regalia while acting like Bozo the Clown. 

Ever wonder why Paul Ryan gets so many head-pats as a House Representative?  Because he’s doing the job the plutocrats want him to do: Completely dismiss the poor, force the poor into total dependency on the rich, and basically get all those sick, elderly and disabled people onto the streets and into alleys where they can spend their Golden Years searching for food out of usually locked MacDonald’s dumpsters. 

This is known as “family values”. 

Ryan, Romney Schmomney, an expert on “strength of character”, has selected his Igor, and hopefully, the American people, armed with torches and pitchforks, will trundle up the hill to get Frankenstein, otherwise known as Paul Ryan. 

Christian values my ass. 

Honestly, the Republicans are so transparently agents of Big Business it’s almost ridiculous.  The only reason they even bother with poor people is that they need votes.  And once the voting is done—out go the poor people.  To do what poor people do.  Which is watch Fox News. 

I’m ebullient and happy that Romney Schmomney has selected the one person who will alienate the elderly.  Romney’s already alienated the young, the poor, the non-whites, the gays, the fence-walking Progressives, everyone but old white guys.  Now he’s managed to alienate them too. 

This has got to be the funniest VP pick since Dan Quayle. 

Romney Schmomney and the poor-knocker.  What a combo.
