When Obama argued the other day that he favored higher taxes and more redistribution because of his Christian beliefs, I was tempted to repeat something I wrote last year to draw the distinction between private charity and government coercion.
I’m glad I resisted temptation, because I received a much more entertaining response in my inbox today. Enjoy this rewrite of Psalm 23.
Obama Is the shepherd I did not want.
He leadeth me
Beside the still factories.
He restoreth my faith in the Republican party.
He guideth me in the path of unemployment for his party’s sake.
Yea, Though I walk through the valley of the bread line,
I shall fear no hunger, for his bailouts are with me.
He has Anointed my income with taxes,
My expenses runneth over.
Surely, poverty and hard living will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will live in a mortgaged home forever.
But that’s nit-picking. Kudos to the person who put this together. Very well done.
