U.S. Schmo

I gave about $3,000 to the federal government of the United States last year. They bought a bunch of gear from their friends and used it to go around and blow shit up, kill people, stuff like that. They bought planes from Boeing, among other things. Pretty much the same kind of planes that flew into those buildings in New York City, just painted green not silver. Recall that after that happened, they gave a bunch of money to the airline industry, the other big customer for Boeing. It was a “bailout” because Boeing had fallen on hard times. Well, I don’t know where that money went, but my mom and my aunt, both of whom worked for USAir, got canned about a month later. And I have to punch the clock or I wouldn’t be able to afford my asthma inhalers. Here in the Promised Land, our people can’t get no prescriptions ‘cause the planes are too expensive.
