    The Americans With No Abilities Act (AWNAA)

    WASHINGTON , DC - Congress is considering sweeping legislation which
    will provide new benefits for many Americans. The Americans With No
    Abilities Act (AWNAA) is being hailed as a major legislative goal by
    advocates of the millions of Americans who lack any real skills or
    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 Senator Barbara Boxer. "We can no longer stand by and
    allow P eople of Inability 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, House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi
    and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid pointed to the success o f the
    U.S. Postal Service, which has a long-standing policy of providing
    opportunity without regard to performance. Approximately 74 percent of
    postal employees lack any job skills, making this agency the single
    largest U.S. employer of Persons of Inability.

    Private-sector industries with good records of nondiscrimination against
    the Inept include retail sales (72%), the airline industry (6 8%), and
    home improvement "warehouse" stores (65%). At the state government
    level, the Departments of Motor Vehicles also has a great record of
    hiring Persons of Inability (63%).

    Under the Americans With No Abilities Act, more than 25 million "middle
    man" 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 into middle-management
    positions, and gives a tax credit to small and medium-sized businesses
    that agree to hire one clueless worker for every two talented hires.

    Finally, the AWNA 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 which 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 , Michigan, due
    to her lack of any discernible job skills. "This new law should really
    help people like me." With the passage of this bill, Gertz and millions
    of other untalented citizens will finally see a light at the en d of the
    tunnel.

    Said Senator Ted Kennedy: "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 adequacy, with
    some sort of space to take up in this great nation."
