A Bureaucracy of Thieves

A BUREAUCRACY OF THIEVES

 

It’s a snow day.  There is hardly any snow.  Yet I am in my room thinking about how it’s a day when the President failed.  He hardly did anything today and yet he failed.

 

Failure is the inability to do anything right.  It is the lies that a powerful person doesn’t have to tell but can’t resist telling.

 

 I love snow.  I used to be a ski racer.  I hate the President.  In high school I hated anyone who ran for school office.  A nerd is a nerd is a nerd.  Tautology is emphasis.  Obama is a liar is a liar is a liar.  He is a liar to the third power.

 

 I am worried about Ben Carson.  Not because he is black but because the suck-ups call him a rock star.  Reminds me of Obama. 

 

Nero fiddled while Rome burned.  Obama flattered the middle class while he picked their pockets.  If he swallowed his teleprompter would he find that he didn’t recognize his speeches? 

 

I don’t recognize them.  They are written by a bureaucracy of thieves. They are the ideological music of Democrats. I am fortunate to be tone deaf.  I don’t have to listen to the party’s songs.
