I' m A "Ho" And So Are You!

How many times did you do something you did not want to do? Me too...bunches of times! Got coerced by my boss, got coerced by my parents, got coerced by my teachers and on and on. Let's start with the definition of coercion.

Coercion is forcing another party to behave in an involuntary manner.

I hate it when I'm coerced! At work, the union tried to get me to join, Yup, they talked a fancy-flowery-let's-hold-hands-and-be-as-one with a power point presentation. I think unions would waterboard  people if they could....to get them to join that is. 

James Garfield said a law is not a law without coercion behind it. There are all kinds of weird laws that coerce us.     

"Every government is a parliament of whores. The trouble is, in a democracy, the whores are us."  PJ O'Rourke said that. It's true. We have been coerced by our "pimp!"  Here are just a few of the mind tricks we turn:

1. We believe NPR, FOX, MSNBC are unbiased.
2. We believe priests, doctors, and scientists unconditionally.
3. We let airport workers touch our junk.
4. We think health care is a constitutional right. 
5. We believed Obama when he said, "We need earmark reform, and when I'm President, I will go line by line to make sure that we are not spending money unwisely."

Yup...we have been coerced into turning mind tricks for the government.  We are "hos."  I'm so ashamed,,,Let's go to rehab.
