Your Weekly Politickle: OAF FOR OFA

Troll

Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:

OAF FOR OFA*
“I will post on a popular site
That appeals to the rubes on the right,
I’ll pretend to engage them,
Then I’ll quickly enrage them,
Leaving heat where there might have been light.”

*Organizing for Action

From the archive:

THE BURROWERS
“Just like Cronkite and Edward R. Murrow,
We’re committed, determined, and thorough:
In the media, the schools,
With our radical rules,
We’re the moles that unceasingly burrow.”
(2011)

Last week’s limerick:

POPE QUIZ
“I’m-a not-a so sure, I’m perplex:
How we s’pose-a to choose pontifex?”
“It’s a cinch,” Guido say,
“They just got-a two way:
It’s-a called the conclave and convlex.”

FAILING MARX
Socialism is dead!
Done in, the indomitable Red!
Or so it would seem,
But in academe
One had better check under one’s bed.
(1998)

ECCE HOMO
“Comrades, have no fears;
It’s only a matter of years:
We’ll sneak some fairies
Through the seminaries;
Soon the Church will be full of queers!”
(2002)

Last week’s verse:

GOOD RIDDANCE!
While their juvenile antics may irk
Those who stay at their posts and don’t shirk,
How much better things run –
How much more we get done –
When the Democrats don’t come to work!

TODAY’S LESSON
“I don’t care if your dad’s out of work
Or state budgets are going berserk:
I’m a privileged creature,
A public school teacher,
An incompetent, overpaid jerk.”
(2011)

Last week’s verse:

MARDI GRAS TIME
In New Orleans, where everyone knows
How to scramble for carnival throws,
It’s just one day of fun,
Then the madness is done –
But the madness in Madison grows.

The Unions are the Problem

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has introduced sensible, long overdue reforms designed to give elected officials more flexibility to provide and deliver vital public services. Program control over important services such as education should be the province of governors and mayors, who are responsible to voters and taxpayers, not public unions whose leaders more often than not have a private agenda that is in direct conflict with popular will. – Frank Donatelli

Although they promised to protect the paychecks of workers from the political parasites attached to their unions, paycheck protection plans have gone down to defeat. Nevertheless, there may be another way to accomplish the same objective. Unions, after all, were established to protect workers against the alleged exploitation of management. In recent times, however, it seems that the exploitation of workers is more likely to occur at the hands of labor leaders. The solution, then, is simple. All workers should belong to two unions: one union to protect them from exploitation by their employers, and a second union to protect them from exploitation by the first union. Just to be on the safe side, they might want to join a third union to protect them from the second, and a fourth . . .

LOOK FOR THE UNION LIBEL
“Be forewarned that our slanders won’t stop
Until yours is a unionized shop:
Oh, the pictures we’ll paint
When we file our complaint!
So you might as well throw us a sop.”

NEA ENNUI
“We ignore those impossible pests
And their parents’ complaints and requests:
As a matter of prudence,
We disregard students
And focus on feathering our nests.”

CHINA PATTERN
“We will tar fossil fuels as unclean,
Promote other resources as green.
There’s a catch — which, of course, is
That those greener resources
Are controlled by our red war machine.”

‘S MOTHER
Oh, thank goodness the government’s there
To precaution and make me beware:
I’m now starving to death,
Blue from holding my breath,
‘Cause I’m frightened of food and of air.

Your Weekly Politickle: ALIENATION

Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:

ALIENATION
“We misread what the candidate’s ‘change’ meant
And rejected the prior arrangement;
Having now had our fill
Of this radical’s swill,
We are feeling a growing estrangement.”

From the archive:

HOPE AGAINST HOPE
By nefarious allies surrounded,
With socialist nostrums propounded,
Obama has won,
The change has begun,
And I hope that my fears are unfounded.

CHANGE AGENT
“I’m a master at deceivin’,
At wigglin’, waffllin’, weavin’;
And when I create
A socialist state,
You’ll have change you can believe in.”

OBAMA NATION
All that socialist “change” is deceivin’
And so-called “social justice” mere thievin’,
But five ones for a fin
Or two fives for a ten –
That’s the kind of change I can believe in.

OBAMA
“You say I’m selling hope
As if it were a soap,
But, by being hip
And saying zip,
I hope to rope a dope.”

Last week’s limerick:

OBAMACARE
“We would never overtly deny
Any care we’re prepared to supply;
If we do have to ration,
With a practiced compassion
We’ll decide who deserves most to die.”
