The Dark Side


April fool’s day is over.

I am back to my normal skeptical, and as I see it healthy distrust towards government, particularly the Democrats.  Republicans are, however, no better. 


The main difference is that when Democrats get elected they actually do what they promised to get elected.  I don’t like what the Democrats promise to do, but at least they actually try to make it happen. 


Republicans seem to do the opposite of what they say they will do.  So what’s the difference between ‘tax and spend’ and ‘spend then tax’?


Back in the 80s a little known band named ‘The Rainmakers’ came out with this little ditty.  I don’t like the music but I like the lyrics.  Oh btw it was a Republican administration during the free cheese to the poor boondoggle.


And this was before that dreadful book “Who moved my Cheese?”




Give a man a free house and he’ll bust out the windows
Put his family on food stamps, now he’s a big spender
no food on the table and the bills ain’t paid
‘Cause he spent it on cigarettes and P.G.A.
They’ll turn us all into beggars ’cause they’re easier to please
They’re feeding our people that Government Cheese

Give a man a free lunch and he’ll figure out a way
To steal more than he can eat ’cause he doesn’t have to pay
Give a woman free kids and you’ll find them in the dirt
Learning how to carry on the family line of work
It’s the man in the White House, the man under the steeple
Passing out drugs to the American people
I don’t believe in anything, nothing is free
They’re feeding our people the Government Cheese

Decline and fall, fall down baby
Decline and fall, said fall way down now
Decline and fall, fall down little mama
Decline and fall, decline and fall

Give a man a free ticket on a dead end ride
And he’ll climb in the back even though nobody’s driving
Too ******* lazy to crawl out of the wreck
And he’ll rot there while he waits for the welfare check
Going to hell in a handbag, can’t you see
I ain’t gonna eat no Government Cheese


I wonder if people in the White house use Cheese as a euphemism for stimulus money.




One thought on “Cheese

    Ever read about what things were like before these hated government welfare programs? Those were the conditions that led to crap like fascism, marxist dictatorships, and the French revolution (which worked out pretty well after the dust settled, but it was really ugly). Since there’s just about always going to be a segment of the population that is basically unproductive, it’s better to keep them fed and entertained than let them get truly desperate. Bread and circuses, yo.
