Attention American Citizens: Free Flowers for Everyone
    #14323208 - 04/20/11 04:06 PM (10 years, 19 days ago)

What if instead of turning on the news (let's pretend we all watch that bullshit for a second) and hearing about debt, massive war expenditures, corporate fraud and CEO bonuses, we heard a spokesperson for the president saying:

"Starting today, everyone will have approximately $30 a month attached to their identity which can only be used for buying flowers or live flower arrangements. These can be placed in your homes to brighten your life with color and warmth, or they can be given away to loved ones for an unlimited variety of reasons or occasions."

It sounds like glib hippie bullshit, but it's the nature of the gesture and not just the orchids. Imagine thinking that our government (such a dirty word) not only hunts minorities, locks you up for meager vice crimes, blows up developing countries, and otherwise looks atrocious in the media, but now has given every home in America fresh flowers.

P.S. I didn't know the 420 theme has bong water noises. My speakers were up loud and I almost shit my pants.

Well, maybe if we didn't have a budget crisis...

In light of the budget crisis though, this would not look very good. :smile:

Flowers should be a priority.

I honestly believe that.

Just an awful idea, and really shows me just how out of touch with reality some people are

My gosh, how dare you read between the lines! What are you, insightful or something?

P.S. Out of touch with reality is what government does best. I liked the irony though.

You don't trust a government that buys everyone flowers?

It would be the first steps towards utopia. Look at all the homeless people. They don't need a structured society, they need lilies and lilacs.
