Economic Fundamentals

Political Economics 101
By GC SMITH

It ain’t fun watchin' the financial world melt
As avarice fanned hell fires roar around us
As CEOs scramble to unfurl golden parachutes
As little guys shiver with thoughts of savings lost

But, wait, listen to these words of wisdom
Words that will surely reassure we dolts
“Whiners, that’s what they are,” says old Phil Graham
“Fundamentally sound,” says ancient John (H. Hoover) McCain

Gosh, it’s great to be assured by such wise old farts
Men whose deregulation fanned flames of unfettered greed
Men who can’t distinguish their asses from their elbows
Men who however could, and did, aid and abet financial fraud
