Enter The Dragon

The International Monetary Fund says that in just a few years the Chinese economy will be greater than the economy of the United States. Yeah, right, but that’s only if Obama is re-elected, for given four more years to destroy the country he just might be able to do it. Once the far lefties now inhabiting the White House are gone on 20 January 2013,, and replaced with patriotic grown-ups, things will start humming again.



Our economy is draggin’

Overtaken by the dragon

That was sleeping when old Marco Polo came

For five hundred years they struggled

Cold and hungry as they juggled

Flood and famine that would always win the game

Then United Stated decided

Far too long that we have bided

Both our time and money wasted on our own

So we went ahead with Nafta

And so now it seems we hafta

Import all we use ‘cause nothing’s US grown

But the IMF is wrong ‘cause

This is just another long pause

And the US will rebound to rightful place

You recall in nineteen eighties

All the savvy media fraidies

Said the world would have a smiling Japanese face

The Laundrymen

The Chinese claim to have developed new technology that enables them to shoot down incoming missiles in mid-air. The Chinese are now producing their own jet fighters, and energetically building a blue-water navy, complete with aircraft carriers. It has been reported that China has surpassed the United States as the number one car buying country, and we all know that everything we buy these days is made in China. Is the 21st the Chinese century? They seem to think so. Me, I’m not so sure. They have a ways to go. They, and other second and third world countries have been able to leapfrog the copper wire age and jump directly into the digital wireless age, all thanks to western technology. And there is much smug punditry about the next man on the moon will be Chinese. But there’s a lot of cultural and institutional experience they leaped over, and must be made up somehow. Right now China is driving a Maserati down a gravel road.



So the Laundrymen have conquered space

At least that’s what they say

They claim that they have won the race

The prize is to Cathay

They claim they’ll shoot our missiles down

They boast A S A T

A bank in every US town

To them A S A P

A billion people buying cars

A billion workers slave

But the road they’re on to distant stars

Still have signs for Burma Shave
