So Much For Controlling America's Addiction to Cheap Oil

Prices are up and consumers are howling.
Polls they are dropping and pundits are scowling.

The Kowboy Koward though knows what we need...
A shot of cheap oil...oh my, yes indeed--
Suspended our deposits to the reserves,
Diverting the crude to the market he serves.
He's told E-P-A to bypass the clog
Of rules that keep us from choking on smog.

But don't you worry, it's all for the best
Cause our Kowboy Koward is up to the test.

This is what the Kowboy Koward said to me in a letter I got last week.

A plea for money...In there he said this:

"It also requires affordable energy. Here we have a serious problem: America is addicted to oil, which is often imported from unstable parts of the world. By applying the talent and technology of America, this country can dramatically improve our environment, move beyond a petroleum-based economy, and make our dependence on Middle Eastern oil a thing of the past."

Liar! Can we impeach the Kowboy now?

here is the rest if you desire.

Worry not, gentle froggy.
Who needs clean air?

Those Kyoto standards
Were really not fair.

The thing is, America
Is addicted to oil.

Bush knows about addiction,
if not blood, sweat or toil.

He'll fill up the national Hummer
Even if we go broke.

For he now snorts power
Like he once snorted coke.
Hark, what is this I hear
That little ringing in your ear
Of welfare, but for whom?

Dirty Oil Barons loom
Circling, licking their chops
For just another drop

Of Blood and Oil
For ordinary Americans Toil (and GIs Doomed)
To fatten up the coffers

Of the Chexonmotexoil larders
While the W, Rove and Co spindle
fold, mutilate and swindle

Our constitution and environment
For political gain, and profits meant
for all pals of big-oil's government
P.S. Kvatch, I'm am sooo linkng up to this post.

Blog on all.
Gary, Betty, Windspike...you are all a credit to the BlognonyVERSE!

And Gary...how is it you get letters from the Kowboy Koward? Not posing as a conservative are we? Hmmmm...? :-)
Thanks! And thanks to you for inspiring so much verse!

Re: posing as a conservative, Katherine Harris regularly addresses me via email as her "Dear Campaign Friend." I signed up for her mailing list to keep an eye on her. ;-)
Hey Kvatch. Elizabeth Branford tipped me off to your blog. Loved the Kvatch's Kommandos assault on Market Street. Didn't realize you were a local. Great blog and consider me a repeat customer. I'll be back.
I am playing for our team, while I play there team.

I suppose it is all in your perspective.

I float in and out of the GOP as the need suits me.

Right now I am in the GOP on paper. I want to vote on the republican ticket for the coming Pennsylvania primaries.

Any opportunity to vote against Little Ricky, and his young worshiper (Matt Shaner) is a great reward.

So...I am just using the system against them where I can.

;-)

BONUS...It gets me letters from Dumbya and Froth-Boy!
hey Kvatch, Yeah- PT Cruiser has a cool blog and I think I mentioned your efforts, I love the Kommandoes!!!!!

Love the poem, disheartened though. What the hell is it going to take for people to stop obsessing with supply and confront demand with some honesty????

Hope you are doing well this week, Frog!-Lily
Frog, you should get down on your knees (do amphibians have knees?) every day and thank God you live in a country where bad anti-America poetry isn't punishbale by exile to France!
Hey Kvatch. Elizabeth Branford tipped me off to your blog. Loved the Kvatch's Kommandos assault on Market Street.

PT, welcome and thanks for the comments on the Kommandos. Tom Hilton, Generik, and I have been doing this for a while now. Troopers are popping up all over.

Lily, checked out your "Leftist Belle" gig over at Blue Republic last weekend. Very nice. How do I get them to let me report, "all the news that's faked in print"? :-)

Rex...truly I thank God every day for the presence of the uber-patriot to show me error of my ways. :-)
nice poem kvatch. kowboy koward, no doubt
He's the Decider, he knows what's best

Don't worry 'bout Iran, Iraq, and oil and the rest

He's the Decider, he knows what's best

Though your standard of living is dropping

And your personal budget you are cropping

Don't worry 'bout Iran, Iraq, and oil and the rest

He's the Decider, he knows what's best

Now Shrub's buds are making the money, so much its not even funny

But don't worry 'bout Iran, Iraq and oil and the rest

He's the Decider, he knows what's best

Katrina, the budget, immigration, the war; you know you're fucked

But don't worry, he's the Decider, he knows what's best.

He'll read speeches from which all truth has been sucked

He's the Decider, he knows what's best

Forget the truth, the Constitution and all the rest

He's the Decider, he knows what's best.
great poem

I'm still ablaze over the environmental rules being killed by this bastard.
Love all the poems.
Graeme, that phrase was coined by Alicia of Last Left Turn Before Hooterville. Though I have to say that I like the "The Decider" almost as much. Has a sort of "movie-title" quality to it.

PoP, I feel your pain. Though we here in Babylon by the Bay won't suffer as much as SoCal, it still sucks that Bush blew us off so cavalierly.

Kathleen, thanks for the kind words. When I can't think of any other way of addressing a topic...verse it is!
The addiction thing is the part that always gets me. No, we're not addicted to oil, we're addicted to TRANSPORTATION. Give us alternate energy and we're up for it. Provide us with DECENT mass transit and we'll use it. Ignore all of that and then claim that it's our own faults we have to take out a second mortgage to fill up a compact car in order to get to our jobs to pay that first mortgage... yes, certainly. That's "addiction" - cause we don't REALLY need to work. We should all just go on welfare instead!
...we're addicted to TRANSPORTATION.

So true, but more to the point, I think that we're addicted to transportation without impact on our lives.

I was never more stunned than when I was visiting a friend in LA. We needed groceries and the store was just three (short) blocks away. I was prepared to walk, but my friend put the kabosh on that saying, "This is LA, nobody walks." :-(
The proverbial drop in the bucket.
