Barney Frank is always an easy target. Just the other day it was reported that H.R. 4173, The Wall Street Reform And Consumer Protection Act, sponsored by Financial Services committee chairman Barney Frank, which was passed by the House this past December, calls for the Federal Reserve to make available four trillion dollars to major banks in the event of another Wall Street crash. But Barney doesn’t stop there. Among other provisions of the bill is the requirement that more than a dozen Federal agencies create a new position called “Director of Minority and Women Inclusion”. Barney is apparently under the impression that not enough women and minorities work for the federal government. I talked this over with a five year old I know and she said, “I love Barney.”
She said if I were a designer kid
I’d want Barney for a daddy
I’d love him for the things he did
Though some say he’s a baddy
So what he’s played the Congress game
‘Cause so do many others
What ever he’s done it’s just the same
As his Congressional brothers
I love him for his winning smile
I love him for his color
You can see purple for a mile
It never gets no duller
When I pointed out we weren’t talking about Barney the purple dinosaur but Barney the congressperson, a man who wants to help President Obama turn the country into a socialist paradise, a man who somehow forgot to declare all his income come tax time, a man who never saw a socialist program he didn’t like, she thought a moment before replying.
She said they’re just like robbers who
Just want to steal our freedom
There is no difference ‘tween the two
Just tweedledee and deedum
I like my country like it is
Why do they have to change it
They want to take away the fizz
And really re-arrange it
You say that Barney’s not a star?
He’s not what people think?
He’s not a purple dinosaur
He looks so cute in pink?
Well just for that I take it back
We’ll fit him for some nooses
If I’da known he’s just a hack
From lib’ral Massachoosses
Moral: You can fool some of the people all of the time, you can fool all of the people some of the time, but you can only fool a five year old once.
