Our political situation

DANVILLE — Editor:

I am going to buy one of these T-shirts and I feel the language inscribed on these shirts surely fits the present condition of our great United States.

“Ineptocracy.”

I couldn’t find it in my old Webster’s dictionary, so I Googled it and discovered it is a recently “coined” new word found on T-shirts on eBay.

Ineptocracy is a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Read this one over slowly and absorb the facts that are within this definition.

I love this word and believe that it will become a recognized English word. Finally, a word to describe our current political situation.
