    A reprint from a year ago....

    The Americans With No Abilities Act (AWNA)

    The Democratic Senate is considering sweeping legislation that will
    provide new benefits for many more Americans. The Americans With No Abilities
    Act is being hailed as a major legislative goal by advocates of the millions
    of Americans who lack any real skills and ambition.

    "Roughly 50 percent of Americans do not possess the competence and drive
    necessary to carve out a meaningful role for themselves in society," said
    California Sen. Barbara Boxer. "We can no longer stand by and allow People
    of Inability (POI) to be ridiculed and passed over. With this
    legislation, employers will no longer be able to grant special favors to a small
    group of workers, simply because they have some idea of what they are doing."

    In a Capitol Hill press conference Nancy Pelosi pointed to the success of
    the U.S. Postal Service, which has a long-standing policy of providing
    opportunity without regard to performance. At the state government level,
    the Department of Motor Vehicles also has an excellent record of hiring
    Persons with No Ability (63 percent).

    Under the Americans With No Abilities Act, more than 25 million mid-level
    positions will be created, with important-sounding titles but little real
    responsibility, thus providing an illusory sense of purpose and performance.
    Mandatory non-performance-based raises and promotions will be given to
    guarantee upward mobility for even the most unremarkable employees. The
    legislation provides substantial tax breaks to corporations that promote a
    significant number of Persons of Inability (POI) into middle-management
    positions, and give a tax credit to small and medium-sized businesses that agree
    to hire one clueless worker for every two talented hires.

    Finally, the Americans With No Abilities Act contains tough new measures
    to make it more difficult to discriminate against the non-abled, banning,
    for example, discriminatory interview questions such as, "Do you have any
    skills or experience that relate to this job?"

    "As a non-abled person, I can't be expected to keep up with people who
    have something going for them," said Mary Lou Gertz, who lost her position as
    a lug-nut twister at the GM plant in Flint, Mich., due to her inability to
    remember righty tighty, lefty loosey.

    The last four words were omitted from the original post....they have been added.

    Also, several sentences were left off, some times "copy" and "paste" doesn't always work as intended. Those sentences are as follows:

    "This new law should be real
    good for people like me. I'll finally have job security." With the
    passage of this bill, Gertz and millions of other untalented citizens will
    finally see a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Said Sen. Dick Durbin,II: "As a senator with no abilities, I believe the
    same privileges that elected officials enjoy ought to be extended to every
    American with no abilities. It is our duty as lawmakers to provide each
    and every American citizen, regardless of his or her inadequacy, with some
    sort of space to take up in this great nation and a good salary for doing

    This message was approved by Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Diane Feinstein,
    Barbara Boxer & Nancy Pelosi."
