The Constipation of the United Blights of America

We the Puppets of the divided states,
both red and blue, in disorder choose
to deform a more perfect Union...
defaming winners when we lose.

We hang like chads,
and strings are pulled
on even those above us,
till we all get fooled.

While big business takes communion
with special interest groups,
bringing curtains for so many....
standing in long lines for soups.

We establish Justice,
then plea bargain it down
to hand slaps and probations,
as the lawyers expound,
while jails sit overflowing,
with minor druggies unkempt
common purveyors of hemp.

Tranquility is insured by
transmission eavesdropping
leaving us unaware
at the cameras all topping
most buildings everywhere.

Endless families are severed,
as courts grant divorce.
to the parents both quitters,
and part time babysitters
to kids full of remorse.

Silence the masses ]
it's unpatriotic,
to voice an opinion
when two wars go chaotic,
and hide all the bodies,
sent home to the grieving,
there's too many too count,
it's beyond all believing.

Bin Laden's the carrot
for nine years on a stick
while the powers that be,
promised they'd get him quick.
but they ran a distraction,
when they realized the fact,
he was ensconced in Pakistan
so they went to Iraq??

Insufficient body armor
for the common defence,
now ten thousand are maimed
does that make any sense,
overtax our reserves
with three and four tours,
served in the wrong country,
yet still our troops endure.

We stir hornets nests,
and then wail when we're stung,
by third world empires
who live by the gun.

We promote general Welfare,
which is now known as workfare,
with a minimum slave wage,
and no funds for health care,
Wars on poverty launguish
surrendered and lost....
but it's children who suffer,
tiny tots pay the cost,

The Blessings of Liberty
and Posterity foiled
as we plant greedy footholds,
in lands where palms are oiled,
in exchange for blood shed....
but no pictures of the dead

We ordain and establish
this great Constipation
for the United blights
that make up our great nation
but the excrements backed up
so deeply we've found,
banks and financial wizards
in the stench have us drowned.
homes all emptied... sit idle,
factories close every day,
shipping jobs overseas,
cause they all take less pay.

While brain injured soldiers
are shipped off somewhere
two deep to institutions
of inadequate care.

We send back our most
precious commodities sent
from the heavens above
to a world that is bent
perhaps answers to many
of the problems we face,
are aborted here daily
suctioned without a trace.

In the dust that our
founding father's coffin's create,
small tornadoes are swirling,
at what they once thought great
their bones rattle and tumble
in an avalanche of dreams,
buried under a country,
now split at the seams.

Not a Bad Assessment, Bro MFB3!

This makes my 4th "Recession"..& hopefully LAST.

I've had my life's goals Totally-Changed hy the 'Nam Wer..also had my health radically-changed by it. We NOW have that "All Volunteer" Armed Forces...so..for the most part..it's the Poorer Folks who volunteer to keep this country Safe. (Unlike when Wars Were Cheaper & we had Drafted Rich Kida serving.)

So..we'll continue to have MORE Wars. WITH fewer Objections.
VA already makes up 20% of the Federal Budget..THEN you add in Military Expenditures..& it's a pretty Hefty Sum.

MEANWHILE..WHAT we've elected seems MOSTLY interested in getting RE-elected. So they vote for Whoever Paid for Them TO get re-elected/ It's RARELY the working middle class.

GUESS we need limits on How Much You CAN Spend on a Campaign before we'll see any CHANGE in the way Washington works.

Good Luck on getting Laws covering that.

Fine Lyric...Good Luck with it, Amigo!
Best Wishes & a Big Guy-Hug,
Stan

MFB--

You brushed over a lot here--WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED--not much!

What ever happened to BASICS, INTEGRITY, PRIDE, COMMON SENSE and LOVE--

They are all ANALOG IDEAS.

Interesting how you pine for the rants of yesterday and completely ignore the growing doom injected by 5 trillion of new debt and now the final destructive action of monetizing our debt. But that doesn't fit well into this leftist lament does it?

It's far more interesting to read political rants that hold all political sides in equal disdain and really call things like they are, rather than pine away for days when you could simply blame the other guy. Those days are gone. The new sheriff in town was even more blood thirsty and irresponsible than the last one. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. But I guess that just too painful for you to acknowledge. Once you do, your political writing might improve a bit.

Both sides have many problems-congress is a joke but if we keep telling one another the other side is wrong, we won't get anywhere. Just my 2 cents.

I'm so tired of talking heads
Who forgot what our forefathers said
"By the people for the people"
Congress is a den of weasels

Who would want to be president
Strong and wise and heaven sent
"One nation under God"
That's a lot to represent

It'll soon been another election year
Democrats are shedding tears
Wiping their noses on the flag
And on "The republic for which it stands"

Republicans are talking taxes
Praise the Lord and feed the masses
"We hold these truths to be self evident"
Politicians are neither hungry or benevolent

I'm so tired of political morality
It never jives with reality
Here's a thought, a plan, a notion
Only liars and thieves should have abortions.....

I noticed immediately that this is an old, old thread... and yet it still has meaning as far as current History is applicable. Then JAPOV comes along with his own, more current Lyric... and we are left with wondering... Will all this crap ever end? Our Government is quickly leading us down the path to self-extinction because of "Party Politics"... probably better said as, "Petty Politics."

It appears that the Traitorous Commie-Dems and Rino Repubs will eventually lead our polarized masses into Civil War again... simply because nobody has the "cahones" to defend our Southern/Southwestern Border from invaders carrying Honduran and Guatemalan Flags. Will we ever learn?

Be grateful I am not KING! Heads would roll.

I think both songs are well written whether I agree with content or not.

I'm a Trump supporter.

That doesn't mean I don't doubt both parties are putting on a circus act to distract us from the real plans the powers that be are gonna pull off right right under our noses. On a good note, some folk are waking up.

Eh, Well,
On a somber note I tried to watch some of the Democrats Debates but who can take all that Torture? Most if not all of them must have taken their Marching Orders straight out of Vaudville. They all had their hands out for your money or, WITH YOUR MONEY AND MY BRAINS WE WILL GO PLACES. Bernie wants you to put him in charge of your pocketbook and he will do the rest. I think that's what they had in the Old Soviet Union. Now Dizzy Lizzie, really takes the Cake. On one side of the coin she wants to blow Wall Street to Smithereens, however on the other side of the coin she wants their money for all her Pie-in-the-Sky Programs. Now any of you that has extra money to spend, just send it to me, I promise I will put it to good use, you already guessed that didn't you, You will never have to worry about it again! According to all those dem canidates for prez the sky is falling so go out and buy yourself a good sturdy umbrella. Geronimo!

I thought "Kamikaze" Harris with her ranting an raving was about as phony as a three dollar bill.

I don't know how to find my old posts on the site Tony,

That song was written around election time.
