Alarming Public Ignorance

“Alarming public ignorance.”
I’m shocked, I’m hurt, appalled.
How could a former justice speak
Such words, for us uncalled?
How dare she call us ignorant,
When we by habit send
The best and brightest to DC,
Our country’s ills to mend!
If we but give them extra time,
They cannot help but find
A way to cure our present ills,
And give us piece of mind.

Sandbox Diplomacy

From Cairo to Damascus,
From Riyadh to Bahrain,
Each time Obama dithers
He makes his weakness plain.
He cannot make decisions.
He knows not how to act.
His strategies are hopeless,
His tactics inexact.
He starts with senseless bluster.
He draws a scarlet line.
He lays a demarcation,
And waves his sharpened tine.

On Vacation

Thank you for coming!
I hope you can stay,
To browse through the posts
Of a previous day.
This week I’m at rest,
Without paper or pen.
Next week I’ll return
With a post once again.

Surely, You Jest!

I’m off to get retraining
In matters entertaining,
So I can work the circuit at the fair.
My previous engagement,
A suitable arrangement,
Turned out a catastrophic bit of fare.
I hesitate to mention,
I broke the new convention
And did a bit the fair would not condone.
I wasn’t quite discerning
In what I did concerning
The man who sits atop the gilded throne.

Race to the Bottom

Article link: Reid Raises Race
The reset button didn’t work.
The Arab Street’s aflame.
ObamaCare is off its rails.
The jobless rate’s the same.
The Peeping Toms of government
Are snooping through our mail.
Michelle is pushing little kids
To feed on sprouts and kale.
The IRS and FEC
Are playing off the sheet.
Our consulates and embassies
Are forced into retreat.
