As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Get Your ObamaFlowers Now. I Said NOW

This has been floating around the Internets. Not sure of its provenance. I found it at Boker Tov, Boulder! Thought you might like.

*******

Receptionist: Hello, Welcome to ObamaFlowers, 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: What’s 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 can’t 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 don’t 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 don’t believe this.

Receptionist: It’s the law of the land sir. Now, we anticipated most people would go for the Silver Package, so what is you 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 can’t charge me for NOT buying flowers!

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

Customer interrupting: This is ridiculous, I’ll 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, I’m going to call my Congressman to find out what’s going on here. This is ridiculous. I’m not going to pay it.

Receptionist: Sorry to hear that sir. That’s 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

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

  1. There’s a similar one for buying coffee at Obama-bucks, but I can’t find it right now. It’s unbelievable how accurate the one about flowers really is!

    • That is another clerificationl.
      Tyranny or Insanity
      Will insanity be their defense when the Country crumbles to an America we are no longer famiiar with at all?

    • The Theater of the Absurd. They made us buy season tickets and depending upon your income the price varies from orchestra seating to the nose bleed section.

      • Yeah, but part of our income went to subsidize those that couldn’t afford the season tickets, so they could get good seats, otherwise it wouldn’t be fair. So because some of our income was taken we can only afford the nosebleeds, so we have to look down at the poor sitting in better seats because of our money.

  2. Really funny. And normally I am meh about these things. Good pick.

    Ordering Flowers During the Obama Regime.

    I have shared it with friends.

  3. This is not funny. If you have ever lived under martial law or worse…this is a PTSD trigger. Enjoy your laughs. The truth hurts.

  4. Now if Congress had boiled ObamaCare down to this simplicity, I am very sure the damned thing would never have been “signed into law.” Scary how Americans have been duped.
