"I don't support health care reform because I don't have a pre-existing condition. I don't support gay marriage or other gay rights because I'm not gay.

I don't support improvements to public education because I no longer need it. I don't support immigration reform because had the good sense to be born here. I do support the many politicians and my fellow citizens who give me comfort in these positions.

We must never let the American Dream be modified without a healthy dose of self."

--Michael W. Thompson in a letter to The Kansas City Star

To Michael W. Thompson in reply:

We do not support your claim to be a member of humanity because you contribute nothing to human welfare or its advancement on this planet.

We do not support your continued existence on our planet because you consume goods, provide nothing in return, and interfere with the work of those who would make the world a better place.

Your life is meaningless and your works an abomination before god. You alone know what you should do now...before all other options are foreclosed.
