Washington, USA (IP UP WE ALL P) - In a scene reminiscent of the underlying theme in the story, "The Emperor Wears No Clothes" a child has observed what appears to be clear monofilament strings rising from the back of the president and most other politicians.

The child's parents were greatly embarrassed by this fantastic observation and nervously declared, "pay him no mind please - he has a very active imagination". Apparently the child has more than just an over active imagination in that this kid is also a computer whiz and has informed the world of his observations via the internet.

Government doctors are demanding that the child be quarantined as soon as possible and be put under heavy sedation for an indefinite period of time. They fear that the voting public has been pushed to its limit due to the fascist police state which is in effect and the perpetuation of the Iraqi quagmire by the current regime.

They are not sure how much more the public can take.

The public is fed up with rising: college tuition, fuel costs, medical costs, insurance rates, prices of consumer goods, government corruption and scandals, number of government employees, and the war against the middle class being waged by Bush's patrician empire.

Ninety-five percent of America's wealth is in the hands of only five per cent of the population. Family values are a joke to mothers and fathers who have to hold down two or three jobs just to make ends meet. Government official's salaries and benefits continue to escalate along with outragous salaries paid to corporate executives and corporate welfare is at record levels.

The children of the working class are sent off to prison and to die in an unpopular war while the children of the wealthy party and enjoy a jet-set style of living and are immune to the harsh punishments and excessive prison sentences routinely handed down to the less fortunate.

Veterans benefits have been cut ( easily found on any search engine) and soldiers get paid late leading to foreclosures and repossessions (mega ditto).

Government scientist fear that the discovery of the strings attached to the backs of politicians will lead to the discovery of their corporate handlers and their greedy motives and this may be the straw that breaks the camel's back.

Make drugtestallpoliticians's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
