Pie in the Face

‘The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone else is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.’ (Attributed to Michelle Obama)

Excuse me? By what stretch do YOU decide who gets which pieces of pie, and how big those slices should be?

And since when is there one pie for someone to seize control over and distribute as they see fit?

We each have our own pies. “Pie” is life. Life is what each one of us makes of it. The pie each one of us creates is ours to eat, share, or do whatever we see fit with. The person LEAST entitled to decide this is a politician whose only claim to legitimacy is being a member of a legalized Mafia.

Make your own pie, Michelle. And if you try to take mine — well, I’ll just stop baking.
