Take The Subsidy Pebble From My Hand

The young boy sat at his Master’s knee and asked. “Master, what is the truth?”

“Grasshopper, why do you ask? Is the truth not what it should be?” the elder inquired of the youth

“Master, I am puzzled. The truth used to be obvious. Now it seems the truth is elusive”

“Lawmakers from the village continuously make new laws in a way that sounds collusive”

“Grasshopper, the explanation is simple” The wizened one stated. “The truth only exists if you agree with them”

“And if you don’t agree the lawmakers are quick in your beliefs, condemn”

“But Master, what is the truth? Why do these lawmakers get to change the rules?”

“Because young son, these leaders are elected by us and then with their new power, treat us as fools”

“They want us to understand since we voted them into power they must be superior”

They sing the common folk song about helping fellow man, but filling their treasure chests is their motive ulterior”

“But Master how does this help us in our quest for a fulfilled life?”

“Wouldn’t these people just add to unhappiness in a world already filled with strife”

The old man held out out both hands. One held a tiny pebble, one did not

“Young son take the subsidy pebble from my hand now or you won’t be left with squat”

“But Master,” asked the youth. “That is only a tiny pebble in your hand. Will there be anymore?”

“No my son, but one small pebble is better than nothing so you will be able to survive but remain poor”

“Just remember you are only here to serve the lawmakers and in turn they will supply your basic needs”

“You are not to question their devious plans and blindly follow where all this leads”

“But Master, I’m poor now, feeling hopeless and living in poverty conditions”

“Not to worry young son. The lawmakers have told us all we are all in a period of transitions”

“But Master, how long will these transitions last?”

“They’ll last until we are forced into Washington worship, no one owns property and all is gone that was once gassed”

When You Only Have Two Hand Trucks

The pastries remained untouched in the center of the table. Sweat stain were rapidly spreading in all the armpits

The director looked around at the assembled group of agents and snapped. “People, this is as bad as it gets”

“The press has turned on us, and we need to pull off a big story to make us out as heroes and put us back in the country’s good graces”

Suddenly an agent from across the table spoke. “Let’s take down a major politician as that’s the kind of story America embraces”

Peering closely at the agent the director asked, “ That idea has potential. Just who do you suggest?”

“Well Mr. Director, it needs to be someone to make the front page news. Someone we can drag out of the house half dressed”

“Sounds good” stated the director. “But I need names to obtain the necessary warrant”

“What about Hillary?” asked the agent. “Her behavior has always been considered abhorrent”

“Hmmm, I’m thinking that a news video of Hillary in her night gown in the middle of the night might cause viewer projectile up-chucks”

“Beside to transport all the potential illegal documents from her residence would be difficult as we only have two hand trucks”

“Okay what about Hunter?” asked the agent determined to contribute to a major arrest

“Look, we can’t touch this guy” stated the director. “Besides, we have his laptop and right now its on loan to a senior agent’s bachelor party for a drug and hooker fest”

“Well,” said the agent “We can’t go after Pelosi and her drunken husband for her insider trading because to remove all the documentation would take more than two hand trucks”

“And Zelensky is out as he is currently hiding behind a huge wall of money built by American taxpayer bucks”

“So it looks like we’ll have to go after Trump again as we know half of America hates him”

“And while we’re at it, we can rifle through Melania’s wardrobe to see if she has any help in looking so slim”

“That sound like a plan,” stated the director. My only concern is this surprise raid might leave America in a tiff”

“Not to worry,” stated the agent. “Besides if we can pocket some of Melania’s delicates it would give the big guy something else to sniff”

“And it would demonstrate to all of America that no one is safe from us”

“Our power is absolute we don’t care if in the FBI, America distrusts”

The Three Stooges Are In Control: Barely, Rarely & Merlot

The onslaught of American democracy continues. This is happening in spite of the top three lawmakers not appearing to be on the same page

Barely appears only partially conscious and doesn’t seem to move well anymore. Could it be that mental acuity is linked to old age

These days Barely has trouble with stairs, reading teleprompters, and snarls at any unscripted question

His leadership has the United States struggling through inflation and is now denying the country is in a recession

Apparently he looking past the country’s general malaise and is hanging his hat on the price of gas

We’re supposed to be throwing confetti as the price of gas has fallen below five dollars just as he forecast

We can now celebrate the new normal of four dollars a gallon fill-ups and hope we’ll have enough in the tank to hunt for baby formula on empty store shelves

Perhaps Barely can call up old bedtime stories and flying in on moonbeams the formula can be created by elves

Rarely once again was not seen with her boss the President. She was busy searching the on-line hiring sites trying to find an office staff

Then, according to her schedule, she is registered for speech therapy in an effort to do something about that annoying laugh

Time is getting tight for number two as she only has a short time to stab her boss in the back

As her eyes are on the highest office, and she needs to let the world know she has the inside track

Merlot knows her time as leader is limited. After her Asian trip of kicking hornets nests she is going to sit back and realize she is low a quart

She’ll have make a concentrated effort with several bottles to rehydrate on the flight before returning to port

All the hand gesturing in the world isn’t going to save her from the tar and feathers if something goes south

America sits and waits for the retaliation from her well armed enemies due to one gaffe from her mouth

Unsupported by Barely and Rarely she worked hard to get the enemy’s sabers rattling with this trip

But all can sleep well knowing she met with semiconductor chip makers to support her stock portfolio before the November pink slip

The infighting, hatred and incompetency has left us an eighty-year old botox queen, a gibberish talking Vice President and a decrepit lame duck.

Nyuck, nyuck, nyuck

King Kong He Ain’t

The chest thumping had ceased as the man caved like a sand castle at high tide

He agreed to his thirty pieces of silver and figured the shallow citizens to take it all in stride

The ridiculously named, Inflation Reduction Act is now just a single vote from passing

The payola feeding trough must be filled before mid terms and the spend heavy policies start collapsing

Like explaining this concept to two year olds, this bill isn’t at all about spending its about investing

What’s not explained in the very small print is all about making the rich richer, increasing taxes on the middle class while hiding behind closed doors to eliminate Republican contesting

Trumpets are blaring and announcements made that the wealthy and richest businesses will now pay their fair share

That load of farm yard fertilizer will be served up warm and steamy as no one has yet to figure how to get blood from a turnip or a billionaire

That will not change as now Mr. Manchin’s West Virginians will have their mountain tops dotted with windmills from Canada and Mexico

Allegedly, a deal was struck to increase gas and oil production by the same administration that hates all things Texaco

They’ve lied before, and they’re lying now. Gas prices will remain high and ever poorer citizens once again have been hoodwinked

There is no inflation reduction, it’s only about controlling and fleecing citizens as the elites running the New World Order are all interlinked

With a tiny nod to some Medicare recipients, this bill is all about spending for the New Green Deal and will continue to squash America’s dream

So thank you, Mr Manchin, we appreciate you shedding your wolf costume exposing your party’s jersey as a true member of socialist team
