Stimulus Check

The Unemployed Union Meeting

“Okay we need to get started. Will everyone please pull up the footrests on their recliner as we need to bring to order the Unemployed Union Meeting”

“Please focus your attention on the screen as this online meeting is for your benefit from the comfort of your home and your laid back seating”

As soon as the meeting was called to order, fingers flew on the keyboards as the members were outraged

The time for free money had ceased, the stimulus checks had stopped meaning this group from society could no longer remain disengaged

“How are we expected to survive?” was the predominant question lighting up the chat side of the screen.

“We have fully anticipated for this free spending administration to acknowledge our financial problem and by now to intervene”

Some of the members had rocked forward in their chairs with a furious look while cursing the digital figure on the flickering display

“We’re in the process of demanding action on this right now,” screamed the Union boss. Her voice cracking in dismay

She had taken her list of demands to the White House for immediate action but so far her ultimatums were only in discussions

She did have a plan B as attention from the Build Back Better plan was currently concentrating on voter rights as that issue could potentially provide far greater repercussions

The members mantra had been “We’ve hidden under the guise of waiting for a better opportunity to provide for us”

Unable to answer when another stimulus check might appear, the participants’ lights begin to blink off in disgust

“This Union is a joke!” wrote one. “They take us away from sleeping in once a month and can’t share a shred of good news”

“This SUCKS!” wrote another. “I’m going to be forced to drink regular grocery store coffee and cancel my appointment for new tattoos”

“Just hang in there a while longer,” stated the Union Boss. “If my plan works, the new immigrants will have all your old jobs, and we’ll be a large enough unemployed team to force the President’s hand”

“They’ll have to pay us to save face while showing the stimulus package employs all these new people and you’ll be able to continue your current lifestyle and won’t that be grand”

Here Chumps Have Some Crumbs

Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard to get her poor dog a bone

When she got there the cupboard was bare as Nancy Pelosi hadn’t blessed the old lady from her throne

You see Congress had a shot at loading up a bill written on the backs of working Americans with their own pork

It was an opportunity to cram the “stimulus” bill with their vested interests, do some back slapping and pop the cork

Congress then can sound the trumpets and shout triumphantly about what they accomplished for the taxpayers

You’re not supposed to notice they have spent the last year doing their utmost to quash the citizens’ hopes and dreams as politicized naysayers

So they sent a bill to the floor that took a guy with a hand truck to deliver

The bill was 5,593 pages long with expected approval in a measly six hours to continue to sell Americans down the river

Both Senators and Representatives were expected to know what was in this pork package in a very short period of time

After watching clips on television from the various dim witted representatives for them to say they read the entire package would be a lying crime

And by the way The House did remember it’s electorate after locking them down for ten months with fabricated stories that the sky is falling

With a big $600 stimulus check to spend any way one wants on such luxuries as food, heat or lights but that is not what is really galling

The downtrodden are supposed to take solace in knowing the bill does provide millions in relief for Cambodia, Burma and Nepal

Sure it seem like a slap in the face, but to quote Pink Floyd “It’s Just Another Brick In The Wall”

And just maybe with 25 million earmarked for the Kennedy Center, Pelosi could be bestowed with Honors while the rest of America has cut expenses to the bone

As business owners are struggling to keep their doors open, food banks are empty and the elderly are dying alone

The free spending list goes on with such goodies as ten million awarded for Pakistani Gender Studies of all things

An easy way to solve this dilemma to to peek under the partung to see if the body part is stationary or if it swings

The money grab continues as the Smithsonian is to be tossed a billion and funds are set aside for the Dalai Lama

While Americans suffer both sides of the aisle are immovable in their demands all adding to the drama

There is no limit to the vile corruption, payola and collusion of an elected official

So when that official looks into the camera and states they’re turning Heaven and earth for you, remember that smile is painted on and completely artificial
