Common Sense Political Economics

"If you laid all of the (PhD) economists end to end, to tell you which way to go, they would look like the spokes of a wheel."

Harry Truman

As a sequel to the post I wrote last week regarding our dependence on Arab oil, and the need to go into a massive renewable energy program ,here is a little poem I wrote:

GOD BLESS AMERICA, CAUSE WE’RE SOUND ASLEEP.

DON’T KNOW THE ROOT CAUSE OF 9/11

NO, WE HAVEN’T HEARD A PEEP.

AND NOBODY SEEMS TO KNOW WHY

PEARL HARBOR HAPPENED TOO;

WELL I’M HERE TO TELL YOU FRIENDS,

IT’S JUST OIL, OIL, OIL.

WE’RE SPENDING HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS ON THE MIDDLE EAST,

BUSH TOLD US WE’RE DOIN’ IT, JUST TO KEEP THE PEACE.

HE SAID THAT THERE WERE WEAPONS OF

MASS DESTRUCTION TOO;

BUT THE REAL REASON FRIENDS,

IS JUST OIL, OIL, OIL.

I ACTUALLY HEARD BUSH LAUGH AT GORE DURING THOSE DEBATES

When GORE SAID WE NEED MORE SOLAR

ENERGY, NOT MORE ARAB HATE,

BUT BUSH WAS A TEXAS OIL MAN WHO

THOUGHT HE KNEW THE SCORE,

ALL HE UNDERSTOOD IS MORE, MORE, MORE

OIL, OIL, OIL, DRILL, BABY, DRILL,
OIL, OIL, OIL FOR THAT WE KILL.

AND OUR YOUNG MEN ARE still DYING ACROSS THE SEA

THEY THINK THEY’RE DYING FOR FREEDOM

BUT THEY JUST CAN’T SEE

BUSH PULLED THE WOOL OVER THEIR EYES,

IT’S REALLY OIL, OIL, OIL, THEY WILL SOON SURMISE

OIL, OIL, OIL, DRILL, DRILL, DRILL
OIL, OIL, OIL, KILL, KILL, KILL

AND WHEN OUR TROOPS DO COME HOME

FROM THE MIDDLE EAST

I HOPE THEY’LL BE OUT THERE

MARCHIN’ IN THE STREETS

I HOPE THEY’LL BE YELLIN’

AT THE TOP OF THEIR LUNGS

INDICT BUSH & CHENEY,

INDICT THE BUMS!

OIL, OIL, OIL, Drill, Drill, Drill
OIL, OIL, OIL, FOR THAT WE KILL
