A Going All In To Not Go All Out Limerick 1.1

by Joel Kravitz

trump supporters cliff

Trump announced that he is willing to spend his own money on the presidential campaign. “Whatever it takes. We have to win. This is the most important election in the history of our country,” he said. That may be the only thing that he has said about the campaign that is true. It certainly is the most important election in the history of the country for him.

A Can Good Overcome Evil? Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

And what makes it especially chilling is that this Evil is supported by Evangelical Leaders and people who profess to be Christians yet do not live their lives in accordance with the teachings of Jesus. The truth is that they can not accept the Truth – that Love is the Answer and Good will Triumph over Evil.

A Suckers & Dupes & Marks, Oh My Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

Steve Bannon sees Trump supporters as ‘suckers, dupes and marks’

“It shows these four, sort of, Republican leaders treating the actual Trump supporters, the people who are, you know, who are — the president’s base, as a bunch of suckers and dupes and marks,” he said. “And the contempt with which they apparently treated the actual people who support President Trump is kind of — is one of the more shocking elements of this crime.”

A Couple of Citizens United Revisited Limericks

by Joel Kravitz

citizens-united-cartoon

Political Lobbies and Lobbyists weren’t enough for an economy built on corporate profits. With greed as the fundamental ideology of the American economic system, Corporate America raised the stakes in the game with Citizens United. However, Citizens United, in their smug arrogance, intoxicated on their “money power”, seems to have forgotten that two can play the game, and that there are super rich in America with a conscience.

It has been quite a while since I wrote a political limerick. I’ve been like many other Americans, unable to suspend my disbelief that Donald Trump was elected President of the United States and hoping that I will awake from this nightmare and find that it was just a bad dream.

A Few “Nomination Abomination” Limericks

by Joel Kravitz

flawd justice

A United States Supreme Court Justice is appointed for life to make legal decisions regarding the constitutionality of the laws of our nation on all levels. A Supreme Court Justice is the watch guard of the ideals on which this great nation was founded. There is a responsibility to both those ideals and We The People. Those Justices have the most real power in this country as their decisions can effect hundreds of millions of people. They are Judges. They are not politicians. Their motivation is right and wrong and a promoting a higher good if it is within the parameters set by the Constitution. Their motivation is not greed or special interest. Now all that is being challenged by the politicians whose only motivation is greed and special interest. And that led to this…

A “Heavenly Healthcare Wakeup Call” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

sign from God 2

Round One of the Healthcare Fight is over. Lots of ducking and weaving, no solid blows landed. It may appear that the ACA came out of it unscathed, but remember, that was just Round One which is all about feeling out your opponent (or in Trump’s case, feeling up your opponent – sorry couldn’t resist, the metaphor just hung it out there.)

A “Real Deal To Repeal” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

deal with the devil

The recurring theme of the Trump Presidency has been, “What do we know?” We know that Trump is the lying scumbag that he basically told us he was during the campaign. It may be the only thing he didn’t lie about. He was caught on camera and tape. He just tossed it aside as insignificant as long as those easily persuaded by his hate and fear rhetoric and false promises of being a populist leader took the bait. Once he hooked them, reeled them in and won the election, America began what has been a difficult, painful process of trying to discover “What do we know?” His tweets are from The Twilight Zone. He is running a carny sideshow out of the White House. The Russian connection is real. But with regard to the extent, purpose and people involved there is still a lot of “What do we know?” still to be asked. And it is going to have a much louder voice that gains volume from the growing number of Republicans who still believe it is their sworn duty to serve the public and know that Trump does not. They know that the Republican Party is going to die a painful death if they don’t fix this fast….And that led to this……

An “Is The Tide Turning?” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

marvel villain

Trump had a pre-election core of supporters who are white and part of a middle class that is experiencing a decline in their standard of living. They are disillusioned and frustrated by this and feel that the last eight years of government has failed them. Donald Trump represented a chance for them get back what they feel they have lost or have had taken from them. He used proven methods to appeal to their emotions. He was counting on the fact that when emotion runs high, IQ runs low and he could incite them to drop their IQ’s to a level low enough where they would overlook that he is unashamed and unapologetic for being a scumbag and vote for him. It appears that he also feels that if they were dumb enough to vote for him, they deserved what he had in store for them.

A “Game Show Budget From A Game Show Host President” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

trust me game show

When I watched game shows growing up, the losers always went home with “a lovely parting gift.” I can picture Trump and Bannon signing off on the budget and laughing. That budget could be called “a lovely parting gift” for the old, the sick and the poor, while advancing all their Swamp Buddies to the Bonus Rounds, where they play for the real money.
