Two Bits Four Bits Gimmie Your Dollar

The reports are out and in spite of the economy’s downward trend and gloomy outlook, there is no recession

To acknowledge the President’s policies were failures would require an upright person to give an honest confession

Touting the fact the price of gas was down 50 cents at the pump the Press Secretary was waving the victory banner

She had to shout loudly as the calls for police officers to handle the current lawless outbreak were non-stop on the police scanner

Ukrainian President Zelensky was demanding more money from US taxpayers as he needed to equip new troops to be used for Soviet target practice

He needs to teach his troops the use of available camouflage lessons practiced by the migrants streaming across the SW border by hiding behind cactus

That way Americans can continue to fund the survival of Ukrainian troops and citizens and half a million southern border got-aways

Rather than border closure, we need to endure paying the costs of transportation, education and room and board to save them from camping next to the railways

Inasmuch as this group of experts has proclaimed there is no recession, there is no need to worry about an unchecked rise in healthcare expense

Now that people have caught on to the covid payola scam, the administration is grasping at straws with the monkey pox red herring defense

But fear not, the climate change czar has parked his pollution spewing private jet after multiple transcontinental flights to fight carbon emission

Ensuring that people will shiver and starve worldwide as common folk struggle with this ridiculous and unnecessary transition

This administration cannot admit to a recession. They’ll just rewrite the definition to suit their needs

They have no problem lying, spying, and obstructing the American people. This vile form of vermin continues in power by the blood of the American citizens on which it feeds

That groping feeling in your pants are the self-appointed elites of this world feeling for your last dime

All this is planned to distract the public from corrupt members of congress and the vipers living in the White House, all partners in crime

So, two bits four bits six bits a dollar
We’re not satisfied with your misery until you holler
As we want you poor, ignorant and living in squalor

JABARAMA

Hello folks and welcome to the City Convention Center for our inaugural JABARAMA

Please be wearing your masks and practice social distancing as we don’t need any Karen type drama

If you’ll notice the vaccine vendors all have large booths set up and are proudly showing the current statistics

Each booth is showing why you should choose their shot based on private research displaying efficacy, the mild if any side effects, and other positive characteristics

Don’t ask about serious adverse reactions as those all happen to people with co-morbidities

So, if you currently have additional problems like respiratory, kidney issues, or are overweight please visit one of the many other booths there to help our attendees

By the way, if you have a moment or two have your picture taken with a life size cutout of Dr Fauci for your very own keepsake

The staff will then stamp the photo with his signature to be cherished forever even though like him it’s all fake

Also check your watches as there will be a seminar about the timing of future shots featuring representatives from the drug manufacturers

And as a special attraction, a surprise guest from the Wuhan lab will be available to deny all plausibility through his translators

So step right up. Pack up your spouse, granny, your kids and infants, and your puppy dogs

And don’t forget on your way out to stop by the souvenir shop for a t-shirt or an embossed vax card or order online from one of our catalogs

I Saw A Biden Sticker On A Cadillac

In 2020 more than eighty one miilion people voted for Joe Biden to be the new Commander in Chief

Trump had been in office and his never ending bombastic remarks had turned off citizens so a breath of fresh air would be a relief

Yard signs, banners and bumper stickers appeared everywhere for the man who promised to unite

But just nine months into his Presidency buyers remorse was rampant and voters were humbly contrite

The bumper stickers once prevalent on the highways and parking lots were now missing as sales of adhesive remover and single edged razor blades soared

The elusive dementia case had soiled everything he touched and now with his constituents was striking a dismal chord

Inspecting this car with the Biden sticker showcased the current condition of this so called Republic as the car was abandoned and up on blocks

The price of gas had risen to the point that driving was no longer feasible so the local criminals had stripped all useable parts right down to the shocks

The interior was now inhabited by two people of unknown origin and three Haitian got-aways

Though cramped, conditions were tolerable until a spot for a tent opened up under the bridge for the railways

With what promises to be a free ride in this hull of a vehicle the occupants keep the Biden sticker on the car

With free medical, education, and no taxes the migrants can thank Biden for being able to fly under the radar

Money For Nothing And Your Pricks For Free

Congress is currently battling within themselves to decide how much more they want to put America in hock

What’s another 1.9 trillion anyway? The new President had promised payment so what’s with this Congressional deadlock?

One group says turn the money loose, we’ll worry about the consequences later

“We have the votes” they howl to their delight and the smile of the newly elected dictator

The other group thinks this might be too much money, funds that America doesn’t have

The USA’s debt wound is bleeding profusely and for that there is no salve

The debt is outpacing economic growth at a rate last seen in 1946

To right this ship drastic cuts will be required in government spending slashing pet projects in spite of the pain this inflicts

Fighting the pandemic hasn’t been easy with every unfounded lockdown adding to the nation’s blight

Led by a very small man holding a personal grudge writing counter productive executive orders adding to the nation’s plight

Advancing his agenda to the praise of his toadies he figures the best way to move forward is to kill jobs

His complete blindness to the future of America is caused by his own petty hatred when in reality it’s his own citizens he robs

His promised stoppage of the virus has turned into chaos as people are unsure of the number of masks they need to wear and where and when they’ll get their free arm prick

Sign up slots open when word of a vaccine delivery might show up, but to get the shot before Christmas you need to sign up quick

And speaking of pricks, inside the Washington beltway the pricks are thick as thieves

And will stay that way as long as in the Washington system the oblivious citizen believes

You Can Keep Your Doctor

The uninformed were cheering, this is a plan to save us all and the Big Guy is terrific

The Bidencare plan had been implemented and the list of in-network doctors was specific

What seemed like a cool refreshing oasis turned into just another mirage

It seems most doctors with real degrees went to cash only clinics and left very few physicians in the Biden entourage

The VA docs were bailing as the new administration was ordering them to administer to the horde of illegal alien diseases

Leaving veterans once again at the back of the line behind immigrants looking for free healthcare while trying to avoid their sneezes

The number of in-network MD’s under the new improved Bidencare had dwindled to three physicians

The good news is these “experts” were taking new patients including those with pre-conditions

First up was Bill Gates. Bill was a computer nerd tapped by the new IBM home computer market to use his software

His pocket protector must be enshrined in the Geek Hall of Fame as he became a multi-billionaire

Because he does support the causes he believes in, his Foundation aids in squashing the pandemic

Since money buys power he feels he has the authority to advise peoples’ behavior to stop the world wide epidemic

Next up is Doctor Anthony Fauci, the ongoing voice of doom and despair currently reveling in his fifteen minutes of fame

An alleged expert, Dr Fauci was disastrously wrong about many of his predictions. Now Biden rewarded him as chief medical advisor and that’s a shame

Finally we get to Granny Clampett, a simple woman dedicated to curing peoples’ ills

Having no use for “city doctors” using multiple visits and tests to heal the chills

Not needing money Granny would be open to bartering for her expertise

A shot of her rheumatiz medicine and some homemade tonic were the remedies of choice as she holds no degrees

Of the three choices I’m sticking with Granny as on her approach to healing and her bedside manner I’ve come to rely

Besides I might just get to sit down at the fancy eating table for vittles of buzzard eggs and possum pie

Getting Used To It

The bills keep piling up higher but the pile of laundry has gotten smaller
I’m rationing my last six pack as my household budget is down to the last dollar

The stimulus check promised a month ago allegedly is in the mail
I’ve tried to log on the see when it is arriving but to no avail

The refrigerator is only cooling last night’s leftovers but the freezer is packed
The news media spreading the constant panic caused my spending to over react

I haven’t shaved in a week and my shower towel is still clean and dry
I’ve been in the same clothes since the first of the month since I’m not in the public’s eye

Besides if you’re not going anywhere the clothes you have on have not been infected
When my temperature was read during my few ventures out no high readings were detected

The pollen on the car has turned it yellow as it hasn’t been cranked in days
And the brittle wipers smeared my windshield into a filmy streaky haze

The price of going somewhere is cheaper as gas is less expensive than it has been for years
Since traveling is frowned on maybe it’s payback for all the former holiday price gouging profiteers

Doctors’ appointments were canceled and asked they be consulted over the telephone
So previously they were just going through the motions when the listened to the heartbeat, peeked in your ears or in your eyes a light they shone

However the grass is cut and multiple chores have been done around the house
Reading and internet searches have been accomplished all the while trying to stay off the nerves of my spouse

This is happening while the country slowly tries to open back up and lose some mandated restrictions
Experts everywhere are quick to second guess all decisions as a failure hoping they’re right just once in their predictions

This Time it won’t be Col. Mustard in the Library with a Candlestick

As America peers over its’ masks and tries to get back to business as usual
And the states and the US government argue over what is constitutional

The tired poor huddled masses are trying to determine what is safe and what is not
Should they stay at home or venture out and give the new world a shot

There are virtually no clues as to where the virus is lurking and where it is attached
The knowledge feverishly supplied by the current crop of experts demonstrates the surface has barely been scratched

You’ve used the drive thru at the fast food restaurant and so far so good
The food came home was removed from the packaging and everyone washed their hands as they should

Since no one is showing any symptoms maybe a trip to the gym is in order to burn off the quarantine pounds
The belt is out a couple of notches and the chip bags are empty so exercise could be as good as it sounds

Hopefully the person wiping down the equipment didn’t miss a spot with the disinfectant wipes
It would be easy to miss a small section while the attendant’s attention wanders as he swipes

America will probably have to live through a period of mental disorder
For instance staring and wondering at the masked and gloved waiters as they take your order

The virus could be anywhere and then again it might not be around
“Are you feeling lucky punk?” Quoting Dirty Harry just to spend a night on the town

The clues this time won’t be easy but rest assured it won’t be Mrs Peacock, Miss Scarlett or Professor Plum.
The virus might have originated on the ATM from an infected card reader that brushed your thumb

Or it might have come from the church lady who felt obligated to help even though she didn’t feel right
And rather than question her unsteadiness you worked along side to be polite

Or maybe it was Sam the butcher handing your change back while wrapping the two pounds of mutton
So instead of the game of Clue maybe we should be playing button, button whose got the button

For certain until the all clear whistle is blown we can make rules for the guessing game of Covid-19
At least until someone develops a safe effective and inexpensive vaccine

Where’d All These Experts Come From?

They appear on camera, at a podium and on the air waves
Dishing out daily expertise while showing excavators digging mass graves

Two months ago no one knew these people to be a health authority
Suddenly, because the media says so their opinions now rule the silent majority

One of their goals is not the public health but to cause America to panic
It’s not hard to believe Government wants to control your lives when the media’s use of casualty numbers makes one frantic

“Stay at home the experts advise, wear a mask and wash your hands
Shut the work force down keep your distance do what what we say,” Big Brother commands

WHO has aligned with China and become a puppet for the Chinese to pull their strings
The two docs on Trump’s staff, one with a scarf and one on a phone book have Clinton ties whose praises they sing

Plunge America into despair and poverty while waiting on the meager government check
Lose your way of life or meeting with friends but hide in the closet as the bill collectors are breathing down your neck

But there is a savior on the horizon, Bill Gates is funding vaccines and financing with his Microsoft billions
This is the same man that forced his software on us civilians

Yes it’s that software that needs constant upgrades for Microsoft to support costing you major bucks
And the fact your system won’t run anything else really sucks

Not to mention the continuing hassles of achingly slow updates, frozen systems and IT issues
He’s planning on vaccinating the world while the mainstream media has you worried over toilet tissues

And Brother Bill’s open border policy will keep the contagious unvaccinated people rolling in
So everyone in contact will need the current vaccine upgrade or the virus paranoia will begin again

Big Pharma is clicking their heels, an untold fortune will be coming their way
The world will be required to have the vaccine series at $1000 a pop or there will be Hell to pay

Their story may change daily but there the experts are acting all confident and bold
But lets all remember, this is the same group of people that haven’t found a cure for the common cold

Bernie Gets Part Of His Wishes For Only $2000000000000.00

The election is still eight months away and not a vote has been cast
Against Mr. Biden, Bernie’s just hanging on trying to outlast

But this nasty virus has with Bernie become a strange bedfellow
The Dems added pork to their package and turned the Republicans back bone to jello

The virus reached pandemic level on both coasts so Congress passed a bill to fight this plague
But the alleged goal of the stimulus package by both parties became a bit vague

Mr. Sanders has been adamant in free healthcare for all and the bill provides free testing
Next will be free treatment and that will be approved with no protesting

Because this is an election year the Democrats are striking while the virus is hot
With 75 million to the National Endowment For The Arts, someone hit the jackpot

To raise that much money PBS would have to sell a lot of Downton Abbey DVD’s
Hopefully there won’t be a lot of fund raising while the shut ins are fighting for their life from this disease

Bernie’s hatred of the wall received a positive update, 350 million for refugee resettlement
That’s good news for Mr. Sander’s borderless country and should aid in his contentment

There’s nothing like adding many new unskilled people to counties’ welfare rolls
But they’ll vote democrat and with Nancy’s idea of no ID for voting the dems will sweep the polls

The new refugees I’m sure are going to be a big help in righting the economy and fighting this virus
While the leaders of Congress can proudly say we passed this bill with out bias

Bernie should be down right gleeful about the US having to pay it’s citizens
Dependency on the government are all part of his far left visions

The money won’t be enough people living week to week will still be broke
It’s only a matter of time before another bill will be in front of Congress for them to invoke

America will sell it’s ideals and soul to try to right it’s economy with another stimulus bill
While the Chinese continue to eat their bats and perhaps morph the virus into one that can really kill

So Mr. Sanders stays in isolation but still gets some of his wishes granted without making a speech
Again the virus worked in his favor as Biden stumbles people don’t have to listen to Bernie preach

Where was Granny’s Sack of Pills?


The auto call reminded me of the upcoming doctor’s appointment, to be 15 minutes early and bring all my medication
And judging by the patients in the waiting room one of the side effects of their medication had to be constipation

My Granny was a sweet woman with admirable baking skills but not a sack of pills
Sure she buttered her toast and fried her chicken but only had aspirin to cure her ills

A lot of today’s “diseases” hadn’t been invented such as high cholesterol and bone density
Granny never experienced a doctor’s lecture about thinning bones with the stare of cyborg intensity

She stayed active, tended her garden, cared for the grand kids and in winter was careful on ice
She spent her income wisely, used coupons as her purchases were always the lowest price

And she knew as she aged, she’d never be thirty again
But this is now and that was then

Grandpa smoked his Luckies, shaved every day and built shelves in his shed
He ate what Granny fixed, commented on the news and at 86 dropped dead

He never heard about high cholesterol, macular degeneration, osteoporosis or low T
Due to age occasionally claimed to be “stove up” but was only aware of his heart when he and the Parson would disagree

Perhaps our elderly were fortunate not to have their standard of living dictated by Big Pharma
They survived on their relationships with others, common sense and positive karma

They didn’t see a parade of specialists, given a pamphlet with perplexing statistics and be assigned a new high priced drug

But most of all never sat in a waiting room with two patients and five buttoned down Pharmaceutical reps all looking smug

But I had the Shot

The flu season is upon us, over arched eyebrows the local news person is advising the shot

The stick is easier than trying to justify your illness at the clinic with “I forgot”

Just don’t celebrate the vaccination event at your favorite diner

Because germs congregate there to turn one into a nose dripping whiner

How is that possible it’s asked, the place always looks so clean

Oh there is an effort made, it’s not the plates, flatware or cuisine

But realize in the restroom a sign states employees must wash hands before returning to work

However after washing all that is offered is an ineffective blower making it easier to wipe hands on pants where the bad germs lurk

At your seat you’re handed a laminated menu that may have been wiped down once before stacking in the hostess’ rack

But the velcro sound made when turning the pages makes one wonder if the stickiness is a disease waiting to attack

Deciding on the salad bar and half sandwich with fries you head to the bar

But the idea of grabbing the same serving tongs as the stressed daycare worker and the twelve people before her is really quite bizarre

After the salad the food is delivered and you reach for the ketchup to slather on your fries

This is the same bottle handled by the pale looking kid with goop oozing out of his eyes

But you enjoy the meal and return to the job secure in the knowledge you’ve had the vaccine

A couple of hours later your stomach feels queasy and coworkers are remarking how you look a little green

Then it hits, suddenly your mouth waters and you head to the restroom at a fast trot

Over retching sounds while trying to maintain your dignity you question the value of the shot
