To the editor: 

Last week we were told of the new Ministry of Truth — “Disinformation Governance Board.” And then with the announcement by AG Garland of the new “Office of Environmental Justice” I started to imagine how Republicans could reverse all these bizarre, asinine initiatives by the crazies we have in office. 

Not only these two, but they could also do some real good by eliminating complete departments, like for instance, the Department of Education and the Department of Homeland Security.

This year with the mid-term elections the Republicans have the best chance ever of sweeping away every Democrat running for office. There’s even a chance of a veto-proof majority that could in-effect allow them to run the entire government.

Fat chance that would ever happen though because the current leadership of the Republican Party is in cahoots with the Democrats.

A little history: Back in the early 1300s, large quantities of bat guano were fed to patients in mental institutions because doctors felt it would calm their nerves due to the high concentrations of vitamin K. Unfortunately, it had the opposite effect often driving the patients to the brink of insanity.
