Humorous Take on Departmental Names

Michael Hampton has some good suggestions to make the federal government sound less Orwellian. Not that they’d be less Orwellian, but the ministry names would reflect the respective demparmental action. Here’s some samples:

Replace the Department of Agriculture with a Department of Poverty, which has as its purpose to ensure that everyone lives in the poorest possible conditions.

Replace the Department of Justice with a Department of Oppression, which has as its purpose to ensure that no person fails to feel the jackboot stamping on his face.

Replace the Supreme Court with a Kangaroo Court, which intends to ensure that no person may ever find justice, especially when aggrieved by the government.

You’ll have to pop over to his site to read the rest.

I like tasteful cigars, private property, American whiskey, fast cars, hot women, pre-bailout Jeeps, fine dining, worthwhile literature, low taxes, original music, personal privacy and self-defense rights -- but not necessarily in this order.
