Objection Overruled!


Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt


“How can you possibly object?  It’s the only obvious solution!  Can you come up with anything better?”

“Of course.  The object of the whole exercise is to promote change and create hope. I’m going to do that by insitituting something totally new.  I don’t know how you can possibly object!  Obviously, what we’ve been doing hasn’t been working out very well.!”

“But it has!  Look at history for your proof. The most good for the greatest number of people in the history of the whole world, for pity’s sake!”

“You may believe that, but I don’t.  I intend to provide the most good for ALL the people, not just the wealthy.”

“And how will you fund that not-so-new idea?”

“Why, by making the wealthy pay for it all.  Obviously.”

A quiet sigh filled the empty silence. Then one last comment:  “It was Margaret Thatcher, I believe, who said that the trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”
