I Hate Compassionate Conservatism

I was hungry, and you threatened to cut my food stamps.

I was thirsty, and you watered your desert lawn.

I was a stranger, and you entered my home, pulled me from my children, and deported me.

I was naked (and gang-raped), and you defended Halliburton.

I was sick, and you refused to treat me without bankrupting me because of a preexisting condition that developed back when I had health insurance before you spent hundreds of billions of dollars on a war to protect your oil interests resulting in an economic depression that pushed my money-hoarding boss into firing me because I was turning fifty and my health insurance premium was going up by thirty-three percent.

I was in prison, and you executed me.

Jesus:  “Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.  And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.” (Mt 25:36-44)

Postscript: My friend at Everything Sounds Better in French lists a link for you to email your political representatives and demand that they make it illegal for health insurance companies to count rape and post-exposure prophylaxis treatment for possible exposure to HIV-AIDS as a preexisting condition.
