Go and sign, Comrades. The future of the Revolution is at stake!
We demand a vapid, condescending, meaningless, politically safe response to this petition.Since these petitions are ignored apart from an occasional patronizing and inane political statement amounting to nothing more than a condescending pat on the head, we the signers would enjoy having the illusion of success. Since no other outcome to this process seems possible, we demand that the White House immediately assign a junior staffer to compose a tame and vapid response to this petition, and never attempt to take any meaningful action on this or any other issue. We would also like a cookie.
Yup, Philosopher Kings, running the Government. I mean, who didn't see that if you let people submit online petitions, it will soon look like an Internet forum? Or Geocities. (answer: the Philosopher Kings running the government never imagined in their wildest dreams that this might occur)
