Rant Against the Left and Rant Against the Right

I listen to the Leftists I listen to the Rightists They are not among the brightest. The Leftists want a $15 minimum wage, a guaranteed job For every wage-earner in the US, be he gentleman or slob. They want free health insurance, free college tuition They haven't the slightest economic intuition. With all that guaranteed government stuff Mr. and Mrs. Taxpayer will have it exceedingly rough. Though the federal tax form itself will be razor-thin: How much do you make? -- Send it all in! Of course, those on the Right are not a whit better When it comes to the President's outrages, they're aides and abettors His insults, his outright lies, they dismiss as 'inconsequential'-- As long as stock and bond market gains remain monumental After much consideration and not inconsiderable thought I've reached a conclusion, one that's dearly bought: A Pox on the Left and a Pox on the Right -- I'll not purchase a house; I'll not be a renter I'll just pitch my tent smack dab in the Center May 03 2018

Though the federal tax form itself will be razor-thin: How much do you make? - it'll ask - Send it all in! This stanza I love; made me laugh. His insults and lies they dismiss cavalierly as 'inconsequential'-- As long as stock and bond market gains remain monumental OH YESSSSSS!!!!!!

Your comments are delightful, my dear. I could read them all day. Oh, my! How narcissistic of me! 50% of your comments are quotes from my rant. Hmmm. Well, I ASSURE YOU that the other 50% of your comments are, indeed, delightful. Thank you!! :) gw

I love the word "too" in your comment! It works so well in two different ways. (Pun intended). Thank you for this visit and all of your visits, Susan!...btw: my only (living) sister's name is Susan too. Somehow there's a connection, I feel. Have a great day! Cheers! :) gw

Thank you, Line. If a 'rant' is fun, I think that's a great sign myself. :) gw
