It's A Dead Man's Political Party

It's A Dead Man's Political Party

Who could ask for more? Leave your punched hole card at the election stall. I have to say that this story, it's something else. It's like that episode of twilight zone where the guy made his heirs wear masks, only not really.
Described by family as lively, humorous and politically conservative, Mr. Unsworth's newspaper obituary reflected all those qualities with the following request:

"In lieu of flowers the family respectfully asks that donations be sent to the American Cancer Society, or to the campaign of anybody who is running against President Barack Obama in 2012."

"He was not really a big Obama fan," said his daughter Donna Barnes.

and then some other dead guy did something similar back in July. Clearly these folks are just more victims of Obama's death panels, I hope they get the justice they were seeking for. You have to realize, it's as if the dead have risen up out of their grave an are carrying comically grammatically wrong signs like any other tea bagger.

But I've come to realize that this isn't that uncommon of a thing. Political parties actually get a lot of money from estates. I bet you can guess which one gets more. So in a sense, it's like an estates tax but to one evil organization instead of another (The US Government)

I'm not sure how one of these folks can really do this with a straight face. "When I die, please donate to self-serving rich people." I guess they just want to die the way they lived, scratching the backs of their rich friends on the suffering of the poor. Though, this could be said for just about every charity. "Fuck you, get mine!"

Maybe I should stop complaining and just join them. My lack of money shall be donated to the socialist party USA candidate! God knows they'll need it. Especially when weed is legalized. Once that happens the student socialist clubs and the student libertarian clubs will lose 2/3 of their members.

Like, literally 3/4ths of the self described socialist I've met say they totally support communism but don't think it'll work so they vote libertarian instead. So what I'm trying to say is that when you die, just bury your mass amounts of money with you.
