Economy

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 The weekly pound of flesh continues to be withdrawn.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

I Don’t Want To Hear It!

War had been declared. He shouted half of the population were extremists, it was them against him

Eighty one million had voted for this flickering lightbulb of an old man but were under the impression he wasn’t so dim

He’d been a career politician for over 40 years yet any American would be hard-pressed to name any successes

It hasn’t taken the voters long to realize a mistake at the ballot box can unleash a tyrant with all the power he possesses

In reality, a coward hiding behind his office, he uses the White House and Camp David to his advantage

The power is now his, as he feels he is a supreme ruler and it’s his country to mismanage

Every poll has this dottering vacant shell with numbers unprecedented in their depth

It would take a solid citizen and a bigger person to admit their mistakes but don’t hold your breath

Because if this man were a pulled string on a sweater the whole garment would unravel

His handlers realize this by his refusal to take questions and very limited travel

Thankfully the P-words have been a blessing to this man’s war on everything that made America great

Pandemic and Putin have been the perfect foils as his disdain for the rights of citizens, he continues to desecrate

Open the borders and give illegals free passage while making the Mexican cartels powerful and rich

Be influenced by Chinese payola through your cheating son while bellowing your snarky salesperson’s denial pitch

Blame Russia for soaring inflation when shutting down the domestic oil industry caused the ripple effect to increase prices

The Fed has bumped their interest rate to slow the raging inflation, hoping for a soft landing as citizens can’t afford this Congress’ spending vices

Because this administration realizes, by losing their grip on the American people, they have royally screwed up and formed a position to squelch free speech

Now the old coot won’t have to listen to dissenting opinions while slurping from his sippy cup on the Delaware beach
