Rush and the Tower of Babble,

And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And Rush approved.

And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a great plain in the land of Neocons; and they dwelt there.

And they said one to another, Go to, let us hire others to make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. And the called those others illegal immigrants.

And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. But let us make sure that the workers do not Unionize, and that the construction industry is deregulated. Lest us enact legislation that any worker who is injured cannot sue, without first proving that he be in the land of Neocons legally.

And the RUSH came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. But the Neocons doubted that he was born in the land of Neocon, so they refused to recognize him as the RUSH.

And the RUSH said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. And the leaders proposed to make Neoconish the official language of the land of Neocon. And they spoketh their language over little boxes.

So the RUSH scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. And the Rush saw to it, that those who remained were true Neoconians,

Therefore is the name of it called Babble; because the RUSH did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the RUSH scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. Leaving those tru Neoconians in Babble.

Yes, well-done! I think that is a great idea, a re-do of the Bible by you. You bring forth such clarity and make all so clear, and you do it in an entertaining and insightful way. Yes!!

Thank you. I think it's a tough competition with the original author.

That may be, but I believe the Bible is a composite of many authors and translators and you are doing this by yourself. Kudos for you!
