Hallelujah! It's The New World Order!

Judging by this letter to the SHT today, we somehow missed the rapture.

Attitude of privilege prevails on key

It is apparent that many of the residents of Casey Key haven't yet come to terms with the fact that a new way of life has come to America. I missed something? No longer are the rich entitled to more than the rest of the population. Yeah, take that for a test drive at the Mercedes dealership and see how far it gets you. Special treatment, tax breaks and immunity from the general societal rules that govern the rest of us are no longer the order of the day. Except for Art Nadel, Bernie Madoff, et al. When Dubya and Laura got on that helicopter, the plethora of special privileges entered with them and flew off to the brush-choked ranch in Crawford, Texas. Timothy Geithner, Bill Richardson, Nancy Killefer and Tom Daschle all must have missed that flight.

It is incredible that the residents of Casey Key expect that they should be able to do things that others can not. Why should we change our ways now? It's served us well, so far. Cutting mangroves, destroying sea grass beds, building too close to the water, and using excessive amounts of water are things that we all are prohibited from engaging in. We're not concerned with what 'we all' can or can't do, it's only 'us' that we worry about. No one gets a free pass because of wealth. Ha, ha; good one! These people cry about being denied property rights, yet they thought it was perfectly proper to deny the property rights of the owner of the Casey Key Fish House because his business did not coincide with their vision of what should be allowed to exist in the neighborhood. No kidding; he lets 'ordinary' people in that place. The nerve of that guy!

I suppose that if Casey Key should become a city unto itself, the residents believe that they would have carte blanche to do as they saw fit, unfettered by the laws that govern the rest of us. Why, yes, we not only believe that, we live it! Look, we can either buy your government or we can buy our own government. Doesn't matter to us, it all works out the same. It's a shame that that is not the way the world works. ".....don't stop believin'...."

Wow, I wonder what the world that this guy lives in looks like, 'cause this is what the real world that the rest of us live in looks like this:

Welcome To Nobody Cares
