The Ferengi are our rulers now, and the constitution has been replaced by the Rules of Acquisition. Worse, we are surrounded on every side by battalions of ignorant, hate-filled cowards, who believe that everyone who isn’t exactly the same as they are is out to get them. There is no evil, no scourge that is worse than having to live with republicans and their ignorant, fact-resistant, greedy, immoral agenda, which they seek to impose on all of us. It is the death of hope. They’ve taken a page from the Borg: resistance is futile. Assimilate or die.
