God Bless The American Blue Collar Dream Rant 2011

 

Oh America, oh America, sail with my heart

Across this land of Middle Class working dreams.

It was not the robber barons that build this land,

But hands rooted to the soil of the American family.

It is not White Collar Washington Billionaire Brother Blues,

But unions of working men and women of “Made in America.”

 

Oh America, oh America, let me sing aloud

From my heartbeats billowing among sailing sunshine

That the Industrial Military Conglomerate Complex

Has bankrupt the very core of financial government responsibility

By getting special subsidies from the House of White Collar Lords,

Who are on GE and Billionaire payrolls that gives them tax breaks.

 

Oh America, oh America, let me pray inside divine faith,

In a God Bless Made in American working dream

That a Blue Collar Jesus of compassion does carpentry work

To Save White Collar mortician country club Congressional sinners

Politician elevating themselves as CEO’s with fringe royal benefits.

For Jesus walked among us, not above us as Conservatives,

Nor as Progressives inbred to outsource the America iron will.

 

Oh America, oh America God helped create a miracle here,

Not in White Collar Sports stars on the right side of the tracks

That divide this nation into an economic Grand Canyon abyss.

The Scarlet Letters of Right Wing hatred claims a human face.

Saying they speak for Jesus from segregated pews of wealth.

That Congress is their college Country Club Fraternity Party,

Where even the Democratic Party has lost its Blue Collar roots.

 

Oh America, oh America can you feel the Blue collar tears?

That they want to freeze social security into welfare states,

While they maintain their lavish retirements with Golden Parachutes.

Are they not servants of the people needing GM union treatments?

That their campaign funds get special GE IRS tax free manipulations.

It is not time to expunge the demigods Goliaths of Congress Conglomerations.

That Corporations cannot vote, but Blue Collars can crave Democracy

That like in China, want to do away with the White Collar bureaucracy.

Where Blue Collars are not treated as Jews under Pharaohs.

But the Constitution of God Bless America's dream of economic Freedom.

 

Note:

While I think unions need to revamp the hierarchy of bankruptcy to create something like a credit unions that stimulates the American economy in quality and pride in working as a partner with corporations to create the next phase of the American dream that put people to work here first before expanding opportunities overseas.

 

After being a life time Democrat, President Obama has turned me into an Liberal Independent. While I may vote for him, he has lost the team work of the Blue Collar element with his White Collar Reagan attitude that never visits some parts of America. I will try to vote for Blue Collar Democrats and Eisenhower Republicans that the Nixon to Obama reign has cost America its place in the world as Camelot.

 

I graduated into the Vietnam Conflict of lost pensions, lost Keogh savings, Subprime conditions, and Obama Social Security freezes. While Bush Billionaires got plush stateside duty, Savings and Loan profits, and get Government Cola retirements. That they get benefits a lot sooner than those on social security.

 

I think that if they are in a deficit that their wages be reduced 20% until it is fixed. That car leases and other perks cease while they are in default. It is as if Wall Street CEO’s are getting paid millions with stock options and still getting a monumental bonuses.

 

I wonder how many politicians get social security and government retirements? Should not government retirements effect social security?
