This Isn’t What The Governmeant…

With the news once again being filled with crap about the debt ceiling and Obamacare, and I was so tempted to go off on a rant. But then it occurred to me that there’s nothing I could say that hasn’t already been said so many times before. So I thought I’d do something a little bit different instead…

Sure gets funny thinkin’ ’bout money
Makin’ my daily bread
The more you make, the more they take
You never seem to get ahead
You break your backs just to pay your tax
Then you don’t like the way that it’s spent
Somewhere back we jumped the track
This isn’t what the governmeant…

Bet my now I’ve made a hundred thou
But I ain’t saved a dime
The IRS came out best
They got my money every time
It can’t be fair when the millionaire
Never has to give them a cent
Sad to say we’ve lost the way
This isn’t what the governmeant…

Then the war, don’t know what for
Somebody said it had to be fought
I’se sposed to go but I said no
‘Cause I’se afraid I might get shot
But here I am on my hands and knees
Scrubbin’ in my dungarees
Well I got burned but I finally learned
This is what the governmeant…

    • Regardless of what else might go through my mind when I’m thinking of what a joke our political system is PT, that song is always playing in the back of my mind. I’ve never posted it because I couldn’t find a good video for it, so I finally broke down and figured out how to embed the Grooveshark version! 😀


  1. Study about Obamacare . So much lies are being spread about this. Everyone should have health care, but to make this work, and just like any other business and business pool, volume will bring down the cost.

    They spread lies about Social Security, Medicare, and seatbelts then.

    Each to his/her own. If you cannot afford it, then die. It’;s survival of the fittest. That’s how evolution works. The weak are eliminated. Should this be the country’s attitude ?


    • There’s a story I read once that drew upon a lot of our old myths. It described how The Despiser secretly placed evil bains into The Creator’s greatest work to both shame him and ruin it for the people he loved. I thought of that story again this morning, as I listened to the DingBats slamming Obamacare precisely for the flaws they themselves forced into the legislation before they’d help it get passed!


    • Everything old is new again Val. As far as I’m concerned, this is just another paver block being added to the road to hell we all seem bent on building, and another brick in the wall for me… 😉
