The Son and Sunny Ways

The land had a new leader.  “Real change” was his cry and “sunny ways” was his forecast. He was the son of a Liberal “Philosopher King” and one might say he was elected the “crowned prince of liberalism.” The land was in a state of euphoria and delight, and this exuberance had spread across the planet. The international scene described him as a “hottie” and a “star” and a magazine had him listed as one of the “sexiest men alive.”  Still, he declared he was a “feminist,” which was apt and normal in this land’s climate of “transgenderism.”

The political pollsters in the land said his ratings were high and favourable, and the “numbers nabobs” and the “data dispensers” were all confirming that the land was still in love with the high prince of liberalism.  This was great news for the party, after just over a year of his rule.

People lined up to meet the sunshine prince, and some even paid money to get “access” to his “sunny ways.” This was called “cash for access,” and Chinese billionaires were part of these gatherings. Getting to meet the prince of liberalism was surely worth the money paid for an “audience” with “political royalty.”

The sunshine boy was helping to save the planet, and one of his proposed actions was “50 dollars a ton for carbon.” This carbon tax would of course be passed on to the people who would pay more for food and other necessities. But hey, this was “climate change” politics from the political prince of liberalism, and his “sunny ways” was now “do as he says.” Still, he did support the “middle class” even though he took a ride on a billionaire’s helicopter and vacationed on the billionaire’s island.

He was giving away money like there was no tomorrow: “$785M over 3 years to fight AIDS, TB and malaria”
“... Pledges $20 Million At Abortion Conference”
“$14.25 million in funding to strengthen infrastructure development in Indonesia,”
“$15 Million For African Job Training”
  “...$2.65 Billion To [a]Climate Fund”
“...$650M for international abortions...”

Meanwhile “863,492 people... accessed a food bank in March” in the son’s country.

This feminist/man was on a roll, and giving away taxpayer money was his forte. One writer described him as the country’s “Willie Wonka”—though giving away hundreds of millions of taxpayers’ money was a lot of chocolate. Still, not to worry, the country was going to pot, and marijuana would soon be legalized. Never mind that the country has a massive drug problem at the moment with Fentanyl. Still, this was a land of “sunny ways” even though dopes and dope can be dangerous and people are dying of overdoses. Still, this was a sunny and happy land.

Sunny Boy was bringing refugees into the country, a nice caring move. Unfortunately, when he was in opposition, he had, along with the other former leader of the country and most other politicians, voted to bomb another country that never invaded us. That country was now in hellish chaos and a haven for terrorists, and bloody civil war was raging there. Therefore, one might argue that he is now “helping” the refugees that he and other politicians helped to create. Though you won’t hear his adoring media make this connection. Now, other refugees are crossing our country’s border illegally after he invited them to come to the land of “Diversity” in a tweet that got coverage around the world.

“Diversity” was the cry of the political prince of liberalism, and he marched in parades where people were known to prance and walk naked and make obscene gestures. Some other politicians also participated, as did some media and police chiefs. Some people were wondering if “law and order” was becoming a disorder called “diversity.” But they were considered party poopers in the land of “sunny ways.”  Perhaps they did not know that “Diversity is our strength.”

This was a great country, and a person could even choose to get killed–provided they were assisted by a designated health care worker. Murder was now legally acceptable and judicially approved.  But hey, this was a killing and “caring” society.

On another matter, controversy had erupted in the land over billion dollar arms sales to Saudi Arabia.  This contract had been approved by the previous government. Now Sunny Boy was defending his government’s support of this contract with the bloody, head-removing dictatorship. He reportedly said that, “he needs to preserve the sanctity of government-approved contracts.” Still, he declared, he believed in the “rule of law.” But one wonders how a feminist/man can turn a blind eye to the persecution and discrimination against women in Saudi Arabia, a country that reportedly funds terrorism and is a supposed western “ally.”  It has also been accused of “genocide” and “war crimes” in Yemen. Perhaps he doesn’t know this. But hey, “ignorance is bliss.”

Anyway, not to worry, this is the land led by the son who speaks of “Sunny Ways” and “Real Change.” What could be better, or more wonderful than that?
