Obama Flowers

Dec 11th 2013 new
By Ross McDaniel
If you don't understand how "We, the people" who don't have special connections to the Obama administration so that we get exemptions, this should clear it up for you.

Receptionist: Hello, Welcome to Obama Flowers, My name is Trina. How can I help you?

Customer: Hello. I received an email from Professional Flowers stating that my flower order has been canceled and I should go to your exchange to reorder it. I tried your website, but it seems like it is not working. So I am calling the 800 number.

Receptionist: Yes! I am sorry about the website. It should be fixed by the end of November. But I can help you.

Customer: Thanks, I ordered a Spring Bouquet for our anniversary, and wanted it delivered to my wife.

Receptionist: Interrupting, Sir, Spring Bouquets do not meet our minimum standards, I will be happy to provide you with Red Roses.

Customer: But I have always ordered Spring Bouquets, done it for years, my wife likes them.

Receptionist: Roses are better, sir, I am sure your wife will love them.

Customer: Well, how much are they?

Receptionist: It depends sir, do you want our Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum package.

Customer: Whats the difference?

Receptionist: 6, 12,18 or 24 Red Roses.

Customer: The Silver package may be okay, how much is it?

Receptionist: It depends sir, what is your monthly income?

Customer: What does that have to do with anything?

Receptionist: I need that to determine your government flower subsidy, then I can determine how much your out-of-pocket cost will be. But if your income is below our minimums for a subsidy, then I can refer you to our FlowerAid department.

Customer: FlowerAid?

Receptionist: Yes, Flowers are a right. Everyone has a right to flowers. So, if you cant afford them, then the government will supply them free of charge.

Customer: Who said they were a right?

Receptionist: Congress passed it, the President signed it and the Supreme Court found it constitutional.

Customer: Whoa! I dont remember seeing anything in the Constitution regarding flowers as a right.

Receptionist: It is not really a Right in the Constitution, but ObamaFlowers is Constitutional because the Supreme Court Ruled it a Tax. Taxes are Constitutional. But we feel it is a right.

Customer: I dont believe this.

Receptionist: Its the law of the land sir. Now, we anticipated most people would go for the Silver Package, so what is your monthly income sir?

Customer: Forget it, I think I will forgo the flowers this year.

Receptionist: In that case sir, I will still need your monthly income.

Customer: Why?

Receptionist: To determine what your non-participation cost would be.

Customer: WHAT? You cant charge me for NOT buying flowers!

Receptionist: Its the law of the land, sir, approved by the Supreme Court. Its $9.50 or 1% of your monthly income.

Customer interrupting: This is ridiculous, Ill pay the $9.50.

Receptionist: Sir, it is $9.50 or 1% of your monthly income, whichever is greater.

Customer: ARE YOU KIDDING ME? What a rip-off!

Receptionist: Actually sir, it is a good deal. Next year it will be 2%.

Customer: Look, Im going to call my Congressman to find out whats going on here. This is ridiculous. Im not going to pay it.

Receptionist: Sorry to hear that sir. Thats why I had the NSA track this call and obtain the make and model of the cell phone you are using.

Customer: Why does the NSA need to know what kind of CELL PHONE I AM USING?

Receptionist: So they get your GPS coordinates sir.

Door Bell rings followed immediately by a loud knock on the door.

Customer: Hold on for a minute, theres someone at my door.

Receptionist: That would be the IRS sir. Thanks for calling ObamaFlowers. Have a nice day and God Bless America.
