Wasting Money on Global Warming

Wasting Money on Global Warming

 

Obama has spent $120 billion on global warming.

There is no such thing as global warming.

Or else why did liberals change its name to climate change?

Maybe it exists.

Maybe it doesn’t.

There will be no such thing as Obama

In fifty or so years.

He will become a bad memory,

The negative side of Jimmy Carter,

The failure of the Jedi,

Darth Vader speaking through a space helmet.

 

ObamamoneyIf I believed in global warming it wouldn’t matter.

I don’t have the power of the purse.

But when a President spends money like a drunken sophomore

On an unproven theory

And announces that all the scientists agree in the science,

We have a problem,

A political robbery worse than England’s taxing our tea,

We have an embarrassment,

We have Obama.

What science?

 

The Antarctic is growing new ice like a polar bear’s coat.

Maybe I am wrong that global warming is hype.

At least I don’t steal the people’s taxes

To invest in an unproven science that I hang onto like

A liberal hanging onto priest’s sleeve

Hoping to avoid the lethal injection.

 

Obama doesn’t care if we don’t have an army.

He would rather invest the money in making sure

That we don’t have petunias

Growing in February,

Like that is a threat

Like the vases could nuke us out of the cosmos

Like carbon dioxide doesn’t help the plants grow.

 

His Secretary of State, John Kerry, calls climate change

A weapon of mass destruction.

It’s not the petunias, the spring snow, the arctic vortexes

That are going to kill us.

Just ask North Korea, Iran, Russia….

Obama is a scientist like Alfred E. Newman is a class act,

A cover boy on Mad Magazine.
