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 the socialist team

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

650 Bulldozers

Sleeping had been difficult. The previous twenty years of hard work had been wiped away in eighteen months by one failed administration

401, savings and a somewhat comfortable life had all been eradicated with the inflation taxation

Finally, drifting off, this individual had a new dream, and not the ongoing nightmare of demons chasing him down a narrow pathway

This vision came like a lightning bolt. The sequence, though somewhat blurry had a solution for Washington’s disarray

The nations’ citizens had been calling for deliverance from the left wing’s agenda disguised as climate change

The farce of blaming all things bad on Russia had become old hat. The dream image of fast resolution now didn’t seem at all strange

Washington has become united only by their childish behavior on both sides of the aisle

Demonstrated daily on all subjects such as Ukraine spending, the pandemic hoax, abortion rights, immigration, and the January 6th monkey trial

There is one sure bet however, these congressional people will all think with their wallet first and how to keep the money flowing to themselves

While America’s suffering and needs are reflected in higher prices and empty store shelves

It seems that neither house of congress can operate before 10am, so wait until the executive branch has it’s morning briefing with a side of prune juice and congress gavels to order

Then ring the west side of the congressional hill with 650 bulldozers like immigrants charging the southern border

Just remember to keep the elected officials rooted in place by waving an idea of more payola under their noses

And let the dozers push east until all that’s left is blacktop and a garden of roses

Burning that vilified diesel fuel, keep those big treads crashing through the congressional halls like a steer in a china shop

And keep pushing east until all the bull shit disappears and the bubbles stop

Handshake With A Ghost

Last week, after another gratuitous speech President Biden turned to shake hands and no one was there

Looking more confused than normal the man experienced a very awkward and public moment in the spotlight’s glare

Perhaps he should become comfortable this momentary loneliness as current candidates seeking office in the midterms are hesitant to ask for his endorsement

By virtue of the ratings disaster this man has become, candidates don’t need to add in the negative connotation of a Biden reinforcement

In trying to look like a man with a well thought plan, Biden immediately worked to cancel everything Trump

Claiming to be a moderate, he caved to the liberal left and in just over a year has turned America dreadfully close to being a socialist dump

The candidates prefer to go it alone and hide from the current political situation as they have no public answers for what is wrong

The southern border has been thrown wide open and people have been stampeding across all year long

The unity promised has led to meteoric rise in crime leading to mass shootings in backyard gatherings, in schools and shopping malls

The American dream once thought possible has become just another tent in a homeless encampment at the edge of urban sprawls

Drugs are pouring in from China and Mexico continuing to poison this country’s youth

As Biden defends his addicted and influencing peddling son as always telling the truth

A Federal Judge has determined the President and the CDC over stepped their authority with it’s ineffective mask mandate on public transportation

A favorite ace in the hole he used to instill pandemic fear to keep his thumb on the American population

He is desperately trying to lower the exorbitant oil prices by any means possible except for the obvious solution

He has failed so miserably that his own party has begun to speak out against him without fear of retribution

It’s not a good look turning to shake hands and find your support has vanished

Candidates trying to achieve a lifelong dream of public office hope soon to Delaware he’ll be banished

As he himself has no defense of his decision making, he can only make snarky remarks to the press when cornered but usually retreats showing all his backside

The image of him shuffling away will be the picture defining a man running to his basement while Lady Liberty cried

Psst, I Have A Secret

He was done, mission accomplished. His telescripted vision had been enacted and the United States was in turmoil

Inflation was at record highs, gas prices were insane, and half the world was marching toward American soil

The Democratic power brokers had succeeded. They felt secure their game plan had worked and now handed Biden his one way ticket to Delaware

They knew they would have to defeat Trump, so they would anoint a champion of the people, an unknown that would come out of nowhere

This person couldn’t own much a track record to be held against him much like Obama

One that could go after the voters that feel they have no choice but to vote for Trump but have no stomach for all his drama

This new candidate would let it leak he could control the border, lower fuel prices, and stop inflation

The campaign would be non-stop as America was wise to hiding in the basement. This time he would stump the middle of the nation

The MSM would be all in as now they could go after the Orange Man with their usual reckless abandon

They can scream about January 6th, his relentless election diatribes, no tax returns, and not having to listen of chants of “lets go Brandon”

It might be enough as Trump will shoot himself in the foot on multiple occasions before election day

On what was once an almost insurmountable lead, this new person will strike naive Americans as a problem solver and watch Trump’s lead slip away

After retaining the office, the White House will celebrate by watching a defeated Trump continue to cry about rigged elections

And a surprising thing will happen after the new candidate is sworn in. Inflation will still rage, gas will be unaffordable, and people will continue to pour into the US from all directions

The Incredible Shrinking Pop Tart

Anticipation was high, the three cups of morning coffee had the stomach growling non stop for the last hour

But knowing in the desk drawer was the foil wrapped beauty of pastry and jelly just waiting for one to devour

Time for the first morning break and the foil was ripped off and the mouth salivating at the thought of the tasty delight

But something seemed off about this two pack of deliciousness as what was eaten seemed short by at least a bite

It had happened. The ever expanding inflation had invaded even my morning snack

And to think just three days ago I was congratulating myself for being a careful shopper and buying the value pack

Shrinkflation was the new buzz word. Everyday items were getting smaller by the manufacturer to keep the prices the same

The President didn’t seem to care as he points his fingers in every direction as everyone but himself should share the blame

Manufactureres were trying to disguise the fact you were purchasing less by resorting to a cleverly redesigned wrapper

By studying the offerings in the grocery aisle, the words “best buy” tagged by the retailer always seem to be the final capper

In reality the wording ought to mention you get less by still shelling out for the same

Shelf placement, new graphics, different packaging are all part of the game

So, after the three bean and cheese burritos night, one might experience the horror of the next morning’s empty toilet paper roll

Because of the missing eighteen squares, you might just be trying to force a really nasty ad circular down the bowl

Consider shrinkflation as gift from this concerned administration. Imagine it as a new way to diet to lose those pandemic pounds

Smaller candy bars, less chips in the bag or crackers in the box, the package may look the same but the product is smaller than it sounds

So when Fluffy is three feedings short, the ice cream ran out six scoops ago, and a family size value pack means you might have to lose one of the kids

Just remember the President states his economy is on the rebound while the rest of America is figuring this country has already hit the skids

Top Gun-White House Version

“Who we got up there?” asked the grizzled Pentagon chief. “The American people are anxious and scared”

“Geezer and Deuce,” stated the democratic party. “Great,” snarled the chief. “An incompetent and one who’s impaired”

“Geezer,” snapped the chief. “You’ve got multiple bogies surrounding you and so far you’ve not stopped any of them”

“Those bogies are equipped with missiles having huge policy busting warheads and yet you continue to only fire on the already dead voting issue which you falsely condemn”

Meanwhile, overheard in the cockpit, Deuce exclaimed. “Geezer there’s a migrant caravan on our tail and you’re slowing down”

“Deuce,” yelled Geezer. “I’ll hit the brakes and they’ll fly right past. Then I’ll point this sucker toward Delaware and get out of town.”

Later in the local bar Deuce was at the piano pounding out a bad rendition of “Great Balls of Fire” when her husband called out, “Deuce! Ya big Stud. Take me to the border or lose me forever”

To which Deuce replied. “Be sure to kiss the kids goodbye because the chance of that happening is never”

That afternoon Geezer’s shirtless volleyball game was shut down by the beach police as even the sand crabs objected

It seems that Geezer, “Mittens” Sanders, “Too Tall” Fauci, and “Shylock” Schumer were displaying too much pasty cellulite and the American people felt disrespected

Six days later in a practice run, Geezer erroneously flew directly into the wrath of his own citizens questioning another reckless decision

In order to save himself he decided the best way to survive was to eject and sacrifice Deuce in a canopy collision

It seems the policy breakdowns had led to antagonistic foreign activities, spikes in crime, pandemic failures, and an economy that had America reeling

Though it took a year for the USA to figure it out, but with the Geezer at the controls, the voters had “Lost That Loving Feeling”

Geezer really wanted to be thought of as a decisive leader. His impulsive actions and atrocious advice had been disastrous as he refused to leave well enough alone

There were no two ways about it, America was now on “The Highway To The Danger Zone”

We’ll Start The Bidding At $25

The auctioneer mounted the steps to the podium, looked at the assembled group and announced, “Well start the bid at $25 for this loaf of day old bread

The crowd nervously peered into their sacks of money hoping they’d have enough to spend as inflation was rampant and widespread

Fuel was scarce and the car hadn’t been cranked in months, the electric car experiment had been an abject failure and now food was hard to find

Cities were starving, there was no transportation to deliver food to market. Pipelines had been shutdown and cyber attacked leaving America in a bind

The national debt was too large to overcome. Trump figured he had eight years to eliminate the liabilities and was defeated in four

He had spent huge in various programs adding almost 5 trillion to the deficit while watching the economy soar

But a pandemic, the biased malicious media, and his own bombastic attitude stopped the eight year run and had turned the reins over to the masked buffoon and his idiotic sidekick

Figuring to quickly make his mark as a decisive leader he canceled all things that had the economy recovering and started giving away futile stimulus checks like toys from St. Nick.

Free medicare for all, canceling student debt and a green new deal will all cause the national debt to balloon

Much like Tinkerbell with her magic wand, the President was awarding his cronies with their pet projects as he thought himself as the omnificent tycoon

The economy had been led to the inevitable crash. The democrats had thrown the term trillions around to the point of no meaning

The citizens were hungry, the service sector jobs weren’t needed and crime was unchecked. America was no longer worried about greening

So a small group had assembled in a last ditch effort to bid on some food items to help the desperate kinfolk living in their small house

Wishing for a do over as history had been ignored allowing the USA to be hustled by their own apathy and a relentless media to elect a self centered despicable louse
