Betsy packed her bag, making sure to include plenty of venom and veracity, and set out for a visit to Janesville, WI where Cuck of the House Paul Ryan lives in a home that is both beautiful and completely out of reach for the hardworking Americans that Speaker Ryan and his party pretend to care about. Betsy checked her social calendar and discovered that she wasn’t invited over to sip mint juleps on the porch with the Ryans. In staunch adherence to her Bettiquette, she did not disturb nor approach their impressive and enviable brick manse but Betsy can’t help but to assume it is equipped with some kind of sophisticated C.N.R.F. (Constituent Noise Reduction Features) because how else would the Speaker of the House be able to deafen his ears to the righteously angry Americans that he and his party are screwing over?
While Betsy was visiting Janesville, she was informed that Paul Ryan was to hold a Town Hall at the Racine Theatre Guild in Racine, WI. Not wanting to miss out on this now-rare-for-Ryan event, Betsy headed that way to see the first Town Hall the congressman had held in over 630 days. Yes, that’s right, the leader of the House of Representatives had not held a forum in his district to listen to the concerns of the people since October 2015. Why? Because he was scared of protesters coming and of those who would come and ask him difficult questions, or, in truth-terms, he was scared of doing his job and having to explain why he continually sells the American Dream to his biggest donors and to explain why his tax “reform” plan includes more massive tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and large corporations (the 1%) and provides these back-scratches at the peril of the rest of us 99 percenters.
While the spineless puppet, on strings from his billionaire bankrollers, answered scripted questions and pretended that his tepid statement post-Charlottesville denouncing white supremacy cancels out his sycophantic, complicit Trumphumping, Betsy was outside with her fellow patriots in the #Resistance, but overall the “Town Hall,” with more law enforcement officers** and security detail present than protesters, had a feel about as welcoming as a gated community during a lockdown.
**Betsy was astonished at how many “Back the Badge” signs she saw on her Wisconsin travels. Seemingly the new Wisconsin state flower, there was one in nearly every-other-yard and Betsy grew tired of seeing support *only* for LEOs as if actual minority groups aren’t being discriminated against, marginalized, profiled, and shot every day in America. Of course, Betsy had to make her own version, which she must admit she likes ever-so-much better!
