A week ago this morning, and/or, (last Friday), I received a fun little “ditty” from my friend Norma, and/or “Normal” ..from out yonder in the Golden State, ..and/or, California.
According to Merriam-Webster: “dit·ty,” (in context), A literary composition.
Accordingly, to mark the event and pay proper “homage” this morning, I would like to share that “fun little ditty” (somewhat modified), with all of those that stumble across my site today.
As the author of the literary composition to follow failed to sign his or her work, ..sadly, I cannot credit him or her with their due recognition, oh well. 🙂
“A Canadian’s Version of David Letterman’s Top 10”
..could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund-raising event.
..could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General, and roughly 18% of the federal workforce is black while only 12% of the population is black.
..could they have the two people most responsible for our tax code, Tim Geithner (once head of the Treasury Department) and Charles Rangel (one time head of the Ways and Means Committee), ..both turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.
..can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.
..would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege, while they discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just ‘magically’ become American citizens.
..could the people who believe in balancing the budget and adhering to the Constitution be thought of as “extremists.”
..could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, ..but not to vote!
..could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. oil company (Marathon Oil) ..is “less than half” of that made by a company that makes tennis shoes – (Nike).
..could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, ..and then spend a Trillion dollars more than it takes in per year – (spending Seven Million dollars per minute), ..then “ragingly” complain that it still doesn’t have enough money to fund its agenda.
…at number One!
..could the rich people – who pay 86% of all income taxes- be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people who cheat on their income taxes.
Question: What about the fellow that breaks into your house, molests your wife, kicks your dog, drinks your beer and leaves with your flat screen T.V.?
A “firm” reminder for the American taxpayer, ..enforcing the law is neither un-American, ..nor racist!
Truth forges understanding, I’ll be back tomorrow
