There once was a guy named Obama,
Did he think these things up in pajamas?
He pushed a tax bill on the hill,
Ran up debt for short-term thrills,
Now the world is saying,  "Yo Mama!"

Borrow billions more for social security,
Borrow billions for money for the rich,
Borrow biullions for school lunch nutrition,
Borrow billions for, gosh, darn near everything -
What happens when the world cuts off our credit card?

Don't cry for me, distant Beijing -
You knew we would feel debt's harsh sting,
We have no common sense left over here,
Only greed, partisanship, misery and fear
A whole nation sold out for capitol hill Bling-Bling.

Times we find ourselves in

The Democrats are rebelling against Obama big time.  They say hell no, we won't go along with the latest giveaway to the super-rish.  Looks like more late nights in DC. 

     The college agers are rioting in London.  Even poor Prince Charles and Camilla felt their wrath.  Buck up, brits:  We endure regular tuition increases here in the states.  Hell, we may have a spiraling inflation rate, but at least our minimum wage is going up.  When they manage to breed a human that can work three shifts without food or rest, we'll have it made, be the envy of the world.  Where are watson and crick when you need them?  Corporate profits rule!

     Anger drifts in the iar like a noxious cloud, and it is floating all around the world.  Populations are increasing, resources dwindling, greed multiplying in developing countries who want a piece of the pie, too.  Since the pie is shrinking, they have to take ours.   There is already a fair amount of shooting going on around the world, and it could get much worse.  This time, we are already sapped over here.  It would be nice if we could just sit this one out. 

     Hang on, we could be in for a real rough ride folks.

Applause, Applause

Some well-deserved approval for the US congress.  A bipartisan committee has been giving recommendations for cutting the budget deficit, and while they are tough, they seem practical and well-intended.  It is a starting point, and already the haggling is intense.  But credit should go where credit is due, so in my ever so humble opinion, I applaud some members of Congress for at least trying to get a handle on things.    - all 4 now.
