the mother, father or child AFTER a fetus is born because it will tax the system
too much;

mothers - but only chastise male rapists because the “woman asked for it” and
men need sex;
Pay a man more money than a woman to do the same job;

exonerated but can get you hunted down and jailed for stealing food – no, wait,
that was Jean val Jean, but of course it doesn’t apply to CEOs;

NOT be able to declare bankruptcy to start fresh while airline company’s loot
pension plans, declare bankruptcy and the government forgives their debts;
Rule that if you suffer a catastrophic medical condition at the hands of an inept

Allow you to bring home a dead fetus for some macabre ritual if you are a fanatic
religious U.S. Senator and keep it in a jar but not allow you to bury your dead on
your own property;
Lie to the public and Congress such that the president can start a war based on
those lies to help fill the coffers of his wealthy friends;
Rule that you must pay a fine or go to jail for littering while big corporations

Tell you that laws don’t pertain TO those in power;
Tell you that you have the right to life and the pursuit of happiness as long as you
can pay for it unless you’re upper middle class and in debt, then you can get
help to reduce your debts because you’ve “over-extended”; but you can’t get
help if you’re poor because you can’t manage your money properly;
Tell you that you DON’T have the right to liberty because of national security;
Tell you that you no longer have any right to privacy because of national security;

illegal aliens to work for big businesses at below minimum wage and health
Allow you to work over 40 hours per week for minimal wages with no benefits,
many times in dangerous conditions;
Refuse to help you or help feed you or your family if you are chronically
unemployed because of job outsourcing;
Pay farmers NOT to grow food because that may cause an excess of food that
would drive prices down and hurt big business;

want to help themselves;
Increase taxes for the majority of middle and lower class workers while at the
same time give massive tax breaks to large businesses;
Allow religious organizations tax breaks and public partisan political views while
disallowing dissenting opinions;
Require your relatives, after your death, to pay any expenses that you may have
incurred in life but confiscate yours, your spouses or your children’s property or
wealth if it isn’t paid;

service including the possibility of losing your life at a lesser age while serving in
that military;
Exempt dependents of Congressmen, Businessmen, Religious Leaders and
certain politicians from having to defend their country by serving in the military
and possibly subjecting them to dangerous situations;
Ignore the Constitution of the United States of America in any part or in it’s
entirety to fulfill the wishes of one man however corrupt, deceitful and
mentally deranged that man may be.

All of these things and more are yours for being an American.
You must remember that according to the current Government of the United States of America,that while you have NO say in whatever it wants to do, you are obligated to do what ever it says.
I’ll leave you with a quote from Henry Kissinger:
The illegal we do immediately. The unconstitutional takes a little longer.
