Stretching a Paycheck like its Written on Silly Putty

The mercury outside was plunging. The power bill had arrived and a fearful peek brought a cry of exasperation

Another bite taken from the paycheck adding to the helpless frustration

The daily cost of living had been on a constant uphill march for two years now

The crack in the windshield, the inoperable dishwasher, and just how many missed payments would the mortgage company allow

Life had become a juggle of expenses. What to purchase. What to pay. What to let slide

In the struggle to create a good life for the family comes the desperation of not making ends meet and a loss of pride

Yet the government is advising the world this hiccup in the economy is transitory. The future is bright with a vote for another term

The faith in the “uniter” has gone from trust to disbelieving as this President sounds and looks markedly infirm

The US continues on the same path to self-destruction with unfettered Green Deal spending, the unending border surge, and the weekly billions poured into Ukraine

However, if questioned about this massive spending, the leadership treats the skeptic as an Ultra MAGA and the question inane

This economy doesn’t give the taxpayer a break. The weekly pound of flesh continues to be withdrawn.

Still, you are to believe the pandemic is raging, the border secure, and Putin is the devil’s spawn

Yet, illegals are cared for, Ukrainian citizens take precedence over American citizens and college loans are to be forgiven

It doesn’t take a crystal ball to see this administration is all about creating an elitist sanctuary and their agenda socialist driven

All the while your children’s future is not as bright as previous generations and personal depression is stretched to the breaking point

Perhaps after legalized pot the citizens can all numb themselves with a government funded, cartel supplied joint

Nothing like a School Shooting to Kill a Message of Hatred

The tweets and speeches had been prepared, proofread and were waiting to be released

It had been two years since George Floyd had died and was time for a new message of hatred since the riots and violence had ceased

Then a horrific school shooting happened and the Washington elites were in a bind

Their socialist policies had been sprung too early, were failing, and this administration was much maligned

It was time to once again to drag out the racial venom causing wide spread violence and panic

The idea of cities burning and mass chaos had caused the White House to become manic

And then one of the products of today’s society massacred a classroom of kids

But the President had already been prepped on his contemptuous speech and needed to deliver before taking another of his many lids

So Biden went on TV to praise the lawless and destructive riots of two years ago as positive social change

The fact this demented individual idealizes acts of violence has always seemed strange

President Obama tweeted that it’s a shame about a bunch of kids but let’s all remember the death of George Floyd

It would have been helpful if he’d tweeted pictured in front of buildings that, in the riots, had been destroyed

But he was probably on his private beach in Magnum’s old house enjoying the ocean view

Secure in the knowledge the rioters will stay angry and frenzied in democratic run cities and won’t be disturbing his cold brew

Trying to turn tragedy into an opportunity, this time these two communists swung and missed

Hiding failing policies behind twenty-one innocent lives used as target practice that had ceased to exist

That reached a new low even for these lying racist leftist promoters

Standing on the bloody bodies of children to try to win back voters

Growing Up Pissed

The violence continues. Mental illness again had won out with a boy who was pissed

The world was against him, it offered no hope and he felt completely dissed

The anger had started early and eventually turned him into a social outcast

The memories were vivid. The slights and hurt of not fitting in were flooding in from the past

Current leadership constantly emphasizes your hopes and dreams are hindered by those who have it better

The loathing started in elementary school with the taunts and snickers. Yes, he heard them all and the hatred began to fester

Hiding his face in his pillow at night all he saw were the kids laughing at him

He knew one day he’d be the one laughing when the blood is draining from their wounds and their life light begins to dim

Current leadership has allowed violence to be celebrated as a way for social change

What difference is it to kill a baby a day before birth or gun them at nine as reasoning has crossed the line to deranged

Having passed the eighteenth year of mental abuse, both real and imagined, the mandatory purchase of the gun was now logical

The gun had been calling for action since it was purchased. It was time to right all the wrongs even though the hurt was all psychological

It was time to act. The TV coverage would be huge and everyone would remember his act for years to come

Entrance to the school was easy. Everything was unlocked and no one was armed, he smiled as he flicked the safety off with his thumb

The violent society had rewarded another tragedy and all should be horrified as leadership looked and sounded sincere

But leadership will point their fingers and continue to prioritize violence. Property damage and assault is okay, killing babies is approved but killing children is too severe

Crocodile Tears

Tragedy had struck. An eighteen-year old fueled by on line hate groups and his own mental illness had killed ten in a grocery store

So entrenched with his feeling of self-glorification that he streamed the slaughter of innocents for his online losers to adore

A sad and tragic tale of a loner lashing out at a group he had been programmed into believing were out to push him into irreverence

Unable to cope with people, surroundings and life he failed to realize most feelings toward him was one of ambivalence

This boy acted alone. He plotted this planned execution and was driven by his own warped mind

But seizing this horrific event, our most divisive President grasped the opportunity to blame white people as the root of hatred for all mankind

There’s nothing like the President of the United States to single out a particular race as the cause of all evil to raise the antennae on people of all colors everywhere

Creating violence and mayhem could certainly redirect anger from a failing administration and a country in desperate need of repair

He has been continuously programmed by his leftist handlers, this makes sense in Biden’s befuddled brain as the demons that rule his darkest dreams are all white

In his haste to create a socialist state, his elitist ignorance didn’t allow him to realize that Americans as a whole do not give up without a fight

He thought he could get by tossing the minorities a bone, patting them on the head and telling them what he thinks they want to hear

He smugly chalks up the minority vote as his and his New World Order is only a white vote away and for that, this race he must continue to smear

He had used political camouflage and Trumps’s bombastic buffoonery to his advantage in the last election. Lies, hearsay and Trump’s own personality put Biden over the top

But Biden’s own arrogance and greed will come back to haunt him in the midterms and his personal crusade to destroy America will grind to a stop

American voters may have to hitch a ride to the polls, step over the homeless, fight off criminals, hide from the covid police and hope the pollsters don’t cheat

But the people of all colors will show up in droves and win back the House, the Senate and ultimately put an end to Biden’s deceit

“We Don’t Need No Education”

Sacrificing education in the name of covid is again the driver behind the Teachers Union latest command

The virus has been a godsend to the Union as it means more money and the continued opportunity to rule with a heavy hand

Quoting The Wall by Pink Floyd’s album released in 1979 about an individual’s spiraling descent into diminishing mental health

Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!” is the mantra that seems to be the Union’s impulse behind every opportunity to close all schools and increase their wealth

Called out for their woke criteria, the school closures can remain until the parents give in to this agenda and classes can resume

Once again Pink Floyd stated there should be “No dark sarcasm in the classroom”

Keep students and parents in limbo, have instructors appear only as a digital figure on a monitor, dictating from cyberspace what is right and what is wrong

Keep pupils isolated, controlled only by droning images from a screen, and continue the monotony all year long

Subject retention, scholastic achievement, and social activities are all a thing of the past

Lagging behind in yearly curriculum, depression, drug use, and thoughts of suicide spurred on by the ever present social media are the concepts that will last

A future generation that won’t function in society, because thanks to the Teachers Union they’ll be left unprepared and dumb

But the Mexican cartels will celebrate as the illegal fentanyl use will increase to leave this group of reality eluding students “Comfortably Numb”

So raise a toast to the Teachers Union as they will play a major role in America’s fall

Because “All in all it’s just another brick in the wall”

They’re Mysteriously Ookie-The Biden Family

Duh nuh nah nah nah snap snap

Duh nuh nah nah nah snap snap

They’re hair sniffing creepy and gaffe ridden kooky

They’re all together criminally ookie

The Biden Family

Their son is a conman with a laptop so juicy

He sells his color by numbers to a groupie

He deals with foreign enemies and gives a cut to Big Droopy

The Biden Family

The mini-skirted spouse is a doctor of nothing and really kinda loopy

But she puts the dementia pills in the Big Guy’s soupy

The Biden Family

Mysteriously hiding in his basement with his finger on the codes spooky

And allowing the U.S. to be a doormat for all thing Ruski

The Biden Family

The White House is an empty mausoleum

When people streaming across the border come to see ’em

As they’re in Delaware eating ice cream

Causing taxpayers to scream

The Biden Family

It’s time to put a protest face on

A gas powered vehicle to crawl on

We need to pay call on

The Biden Family

Paranoia: I See Conservatives

Paranoia is an instinct or thought process which is believed to be heavily influenced by anxiety or fear often to the point of delusion or irrationality. Paranoid thinking typically includes persecutory beliefs or beliefs of conspiracy concerning a perceived threat towards oneself (i.e. the American colloquial phrase, “Everyone is out to get me”) Wikipedia

The new King is set to ascend to the throne, but is he showing signs of Paranoid Personality Disorder

Apparently the immigration stampede organizers realize this as there is already a march to the southern border

Take advantage of campaign promises made while the iron is hot

Before it’s realized around the globe statements made can be dismissed with a simple “I forgot”

Trying to isolate himself from at least half the country he constructed walls, closed bridges and brought in troops

Because this may not be enough security he’s demanded the troops to jump through additional hoops

It seems that in the 25,000 guardsman assembled someone might not share in his goal of America’s destruction

So they had to swear a supplementary oath of allegiance per his instruction

There is also a major push to squelch free speech with the proposed media literacy initiative

One way of thought must rule as any slight to the new King would be considered highly insensitive

The new exalted ruler will glare down from his new throne and refuse to answer questions

“Come on man” he will yell at anyone who will offer any minor contrary suggestion

Women who have been touched and fondled, laptop suspicions and former racist statements will be banned

As truth matters not in advancing this party’s brand

One should pity this man by surrounding himself with only “friends” beginning on inauguration day

When on that fateful morning he realizes too late his closest confidants will betray him as he mumbles “Et Tu Brute”

Save The Last Dance For Me

The country is opening back up and the masks are coming off
People are acting as if everything is back to normal until they hear someone cough

Suddenly the tension can be cut with a knife as activity freezes
And glares of disapproval are directed at the individual that coughs or sneezes

But if the virus is spread through everyday interaction than that is acceptable
Unless of course unless your employment has you working around those most susceptible

People want to get out, to assume normalcy and to be part of a crowd
Emerging from government forced hibernation eager to participate in activities that are allowed

They want to attend concerts, eat at restaurants and socialize at bars
They want to return to yesterday and take back what is ours

Things once taken for granted are missed the most
It’s time to look forward and raise a glass in future toasts

Everyone expects a spike in virus cases or a second wave
The statistics show most recover with the exception of those with one foot in the grave

The population is more than ready to attend church, sporting events and to travel
To lift up the once strong economy that took only a month to unravel

They’re ready to smell the mustard of ball park hot dogs and taste the crispness of the cold beer
To feel the thunk of the landing gear at a vacation destination without virus fears

But as for me I believe I’ll stay home and inside a while longer
They say what doesn’t kill you will only make you stronger

I’m not ready to lay in bed with lungs intubated and gasping for breath
While relatives are hastily making last arrangements needed after death

So everyone can make their own decisions about being foot loose and fancy free
But I’ll continue to lay low and hope someone saves the last dance for me

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

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

Time For A Reboot

As usual after countless attempts the help desk 24/7 phone line was still busy
The reports were due and the management staff was in a tizzy

Finally after losing precious minutes the monotone IT expert came on the line
The system kept locking on the merge screen as if by design

Hopefully this personality rich individual could figure the cause
Always under the notion the systems are perfect and the operator has flaws

Demeaning himself to speak to us peons his first suggestion was to reboot
Like explaining to a toddler he advised to locate the power switch, toggle, and you should compute

If only the world was so simple that one could flip the power switch
Just reach behind the box, a quick push and goodbye to the glitch

As in system software like this world this isn’t always the case
There is no reset button as this virus disrupts the human race

A new set of rules has been hastily written and thrust on mankind
Daily routines, employment and relationships as we know it have been redefined

Granny is off limits, one can only work from home and little kids watch the outdoors through the window sills
While an anxious mother watches terrified that either she or they will start to have the chills

Also knowing she’ll have to explain the monster’s not under the bed but on their playmate’s hands
Hoping beyond belief there is some comprehension and the little one understands

When this vile plague is over perhaps a reboot is what this country needs
A time to look back and not stumble over the same misdeeds

Time to see the puppy’s delighted wiggle, the infant’s reach, the elder’s smile because you walked in the door
Forgiving the cry in the night, a minute of forgetfulness, or the accident on the floor

To continue dwelling in the negatives of the past only wounds the heart
Moreover thinking there is only one resolution that matters the world will continue to drift apart
