Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling for March 01, 2003
Working at the White House, you can be presented with unexpected hazardous conditions, but with the right information, you can be prepared for any situation. In the event of DISSENT OVER TAX CUTS 1. Create a smokescreen of confusing statistics and figures. 2. Ignore or avoid news f changing economic conditions that counter tax cut justifications. 3. If critics blow the whistle on plan's disproportionate benefit to the wealthy, shot, "Class warfare!" and return to step one. In the event of BUDGET DEFICITS 1. Ignore all Economics textbooks, treatises and papers. 2. Use media to convince citizenry that huge long-term deficits are O.K. 3. Wash hands of responsibility by telling people that the deficits are a carryover from the Clinton, Carter and Johnson administrations. In the event of DEMONSTRATIONS AGAINST WAR 1. First and foremost, do not listen to the message of the protesters. 2. Intervene in local safety proceedings to try to stifle demonstrations. 3. Remember, those adversely affected by war are the faceless rabble, not you and your golf buddies.
