When They Finally Return Will They Be Worth a Damn?

The question startled her. She’d been focused on her phone and Facebook

She’d completely missed the inquiry hoping the computer’s camera didn’t capture her dirty look

She’d grown accustomed to four hours repetition of hum drum Zoom lessons to a distracted group of students

All the while texting and giggling to fellow educators the fact that some of her pupils closely resembled teenaged mutants

Her county’s schools had been shut down for over a year though strange at first now this part time job at full time pay was a breeze

The Teachers Union was adamant, no one will return as long as they can hide behind the disease

But a new order was issued, teachers were to return to the classroom for one day a week.

Originally thinking the Zoom thing would never work, soon one realized they could haphazardly prepare for this new technique

Perhaps we can hide behind the Teachers Union demanding prior to returning all have the covid shot

As it seems between Biden’s promise and those annoying parents the whole world has their panties in a knot

The parents can be the worst, having to answer questions about goals and agenda when we all know they’re using us a babysitters

Besides no one misses lunch room duty, bus patrol, or time expended on school events, recent memories all causing jitters

The reality of returning to the classroom, the daily commute or just putting up with the kids trying to teach subjects that you’ll need to reintroduce

It may seem easy to the outsiders but to teachers now used to ducking out early this can only be considered abuse

Gentlemen, Place Your Bets

One cannot turn on a TV these days without being forced to watch a gambling ad

These commercials all seem innocent enough, bet a dollar to win a hundred with just a touch of your keypad

It all started with the state run lottery, to help the education system scratch a ticket, play the numbers and win a chance at the mega bucks

Of course for most people it’s money spent that can’t be recovered to pay the bills and that’s what sucks

Now the lottery has competition from sports betting and TV stations own betting parlay

So before this new administration taxes it’s working citizens into oblivion a national lottery should be thrown into the gambling fray

Odds can be given to bettors on the current gossip or political scene

For instance, currently at 10:1 are the odds being given when Meghan will be called a back stabbing goldigger by the Queen

For the first time patient player, a fools bet would be the date Trump concedes the election and stops his rigged rant

At 25 million to one what’s the harm in a dollar bet and then wait for him to recant

For the real players a good longshot bet at 10,000:1 would be when Jen Psaki actually answers a question

With the over/under at 1832, it might be a better wager to see how many questions she can consecutively field while providing her usual ambiguous phrase of deflection

Also getting odds is Biden’s new red flag gun proposal intended to help identify unstable people and will hopefully also apply to the Congressional House

Because at a little better than even odds it’s just a matter of time before a representative’s sordid past is exposed and proclaimed a nut job by his spouse

This money making scheme is endless, just imagine the odds you could get if when standing near a heat source how long it would take for all the Botox to drain from Pelosi’s face

And in the contest for the worst administration ever would this group win show or place

The list could go on forever the authorized betting parlors’ phones would be ringing off the hook

By adding 5 trillion more debt to the taxpayers bill in less than 90 days, Americans need a shot at big money before the government lays claim to their check book

Dragging Poor Old Jim Crow Around

Once again the narrative required dragging poor old Jim Crow around

It is proclaimed the State of Georgia has passed into law rules designed to keep people of color down

This places an unfair burden on minorities was the rallying cry

But truthfully the laws passed enhanced all peoples’ ability to vote but they instead listened to the President’s lie

He claimed the new rules hearkened back to the Jim Crow era when black people and poor white trash had to pass literary tests to vote

Latin textbooks were given to potential voters and when the script wasn’t comprehended the assembled democrats all had reason to gloat

Back then restrooms, water fountains, rail cars and theater balconies were all assigned by skin tone

Somehow this race baiting pandering President became confused over standard voting rules and his comments became overblown

He seems focused on a rule no one can approach someone standing in line with water or snacks

Gee Mr President that has always been a rule that no one can approach a voter line inside 150 feet and this wasn’t aimed at blacks

Remember how in westerns (and currently today) the bars were always closed on election day

The same applies here as all voters have a right to enter the polling place without being accosted by anyone with any message they might try to convey

There can be no argument over voter ID whether voting in person or by mail

This eliminates any accusations of ballot box stuffing or votes by people who have long since bit the dusty trail

So woke companies might try reading through the new laws before jumping into the cancel culture parade

If a group boarding a Delta jet used a library card as their ID and all had ticking suitcases the other passengers just might be dismayed

And Coke would hate it if people standing in concession lines were shown pictures of diabetic amputees

So before bowing to some small vocal groups’ portrayal of suffering victims the companies really need to dot their i’s and cross their t’s

Finally another gutless major league sports franchise pulled their Atlanta bound all-star game

Furthering the disgrace that professional sports has become and that’s a shame

Therefore if President Biden and his lapdogs want to continue to spread his lies

He needs to be man enough to back up his Jim Crow claims by answering real questions and all that implies
