Where to start. So much is happening. Yesterday Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was pressured by President Obama to commit national suicide by giving Hamas the Wes Bank, the UN announced former President Clinton would be named UN ambassador to Haiti, and today General Motors announced that as part of its bankruptcy plan it would sell the profitable parts of the company to the Federal Government. The taxpayers of the United States will now be expected to kick in to keep the UAW on the job.
General Motors got big by acquiring other automobile companies, companies founded by guys like David Buick, Walter Olds, Louis Chevrolet and Chief Pontiac of the Ottawa nation. General Motors once built cars, lots of cars, but today General Motors is not an automobile company at all, but the largest private distributor of health care in the world. General Motors has 90,000 employees and 800,000 retirees, whose pensions and health care costs are paid by GM. Every penny of the taxpayer bailout money paid to General Motors by the Obama administration has gone not to GM, but to the UAW. The Obama administration will very soon own General Motors. The UAW already owns the Obama administration.
Now that GM means Government Made
We all feel so much better
To know best plans are being made
To add another letter
You see the guv’mint can’t exist
With acronyms a twosey
Three letters please, they do insist
And they’re not even choosy
GMA or GMZ
It really doesn’t matter
What counts is that it counts to three
That’s how they climb the ladder
You think a man with pride would take
A job with just two letters?
A laughingstock would him do make
With his G-15 betters
We need good men for jobs as large
As building cars like lemons
‘Less Barney Frank put him in charge
And then he’s building wemons
So GMC it is, your dough
Has bought it, it’s a wrap
And GMC now stands, you know
For just more Government Made Crap
