Porkulus Poetry

February 24, 2009 at 6:00 am 2 comments

My favorite political poetess is back with a new edition. Katy is back with more rhyming fun. This time she tackled the Stimulus Bill. (Porkulus, Spendulous, Generational Theft Act, or the Congressional Relief Action Project) It is smashing fun. (and in case you have missed her previous works – There is Barry Barry What’cha Doin and Twas the Night Before Election – 2008

So here it is straight from the author:

” Just Drink The Kool-Aid Up And Let It Roll ” by Katy, Durham NC

Reflections on the Stimulus Bill ~   ( To the tune of ” Easter Parade ” )


The Stimulus Bill! Doggonit!
Just heap more pork upon it!
You know they’ve said that we don’t even care.
With Pelosi and Reid behind it,
The Truth? You’ll never find it.
You know they really think we’re not aware.

What’s there? It’s hard to pin it
Who knows what’s really in it?
To read The Bill they’d miss vacation time
So coat it all with honey
And truly waste our money
It’s all ok ’cause it’s just on OUR dime.

They passed it with a flurry,
And did it in a hurry,
Can’t take the time to see what all it said
” You need to pass this Bill,
Or the crisis will deepen still “
What’s going on inside Obama’s head?

I’ll tell you what I do know
Recovery will be slow
And they’ll spend so much more than what they’ve got
Don’t think that things can get worse?
Just wait ’till they hit YOUR purse
And you’ll see CHANGE is not quite what you thought!

Let’s give out more school lunches!
Let’s dole it out in bunches!
Let’s plant grass at ‘ The Mall ‘, and don’t ask why!
ACORN- they really want it!
Pelosi- she sure can flaunt it,
While in her pricey jet she gets to fly!

Let’s socialize our health care!
Let’s hand it out! Let’s be fair!
It’s time to share our pieces of the pie
Shame on you for working
You know you should be shirking
It’s bail out time! See what this Bill will buy!

Let’s subsidize the lazy
You’re for it, or your crazy
Keep on spending- no limits THEY will find!
Let’s not create more tension
Just let go of your pension
You owe to those who are coming up behind!

Of course there’s ‘ Gitmo Bay ‘
They go or do they stay?
Hey, what about the guy that bombed ” The Cole ” ?
Let’s let the guilty go
It’s not their fault you know
Just drink the Kool-Aid up and let it roll!

( Don’t think most of this last paragraph had anything to do with the Stimulus Bill? Most of the stuff in the Stimulus Bill didn’t belong there either! )

Something to ponder….

……” The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not ”
…….” I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them ”
…….” My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government “
– All three quotes are from Thomas Jefferson

And the scariest one of all……..

“We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find they have Communism.”

– Soviet Leader Nikita Khrushchev, 1959
