Three years ago yesterday, the Pigs of the Aporkalypse descended upon the fruited plain of America. It’s been downhill ever since.
What more appropriate imagery can there be for so portentous a vote as that cast by three RINOs whose names will go down in Republican party infamy? I refer, of course to the votes of Arlen Specter (now a Democrat from Pennsylvania), Olympia Snow (RINO-Maine) and Susan Collins (RINO-Maine) for the so-called Stimulus Bill – a bill that has yet to slow down the economic collapse of this nation.
For the Biblically challenged, its a riff taken from the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, a vision recorded in Chapter 6 of the Apocalypse of St. John (also referred to as the Book of Revelation). I cant think of a better term than Aporkalypse because it will successfully destroy this economy, at which point the federal government will have no choice (for the good of the people, you see) to step in and take over. At that point you can pretty much kiss the republic goodbye. Sounds crazy? Crack open a history book or two.
We can even ascribe symbolic value to each of the RINOs who betrayed our party and our nation: Arlen Specter is the pale little piggy who brings big government in the form of a grossly inflated bureaucracy, manifold regulations and a nationalized health care system that will dictate who lives and who dies. After jumping to the Democrat Party – where he truly belonged – he was voted out of office in 2010.
Olympia Snowe is the white little piggy who brings goodies for everyone, including billions for ACORN, new accommodations for Henrietta Hughes and a new career for Julio Osegueda.
Collins is the black little piggy who brings taxpayers the bill for it all, including confiscatory taxes, more fees, more money taken from out pockets and dropped into the federal government coffers for the next three generations.
Sadly, both Frick and Frack of Maine are still in office and likely will be for life.
