The Widdershins

Uzbekibeki-beki-beki-stan-stan is lovely this time of year.

Clearly there is no better place to enjoy the spectacle of the imminent collapse of American society.  Since there appears to be no obvious exit from this train ride to nowhere, we might as well get comfy and enjoy the view.

Herman Cain, spiritual father of our lovely Uzbekibeki-beki-beki-stan-stan, has rocketed to the top of the Republican polls after sucking all of the energy from Rick Perry.  However, there are no flies on Perry.  He has countered the 9-9-9 plan with an optional 20% plan which might be filed  by post card (sweetened by an immediate personal savings of fifteen cents in stamp price) versus traditional filing.  Perry swears that this measure will simplify the tax code, but is at a loss to explain how.  He also admits that this will lead to an immediate decrease of revenue for the nation, but vows to slash spending accordingly.

In this spirit, I would like to suggest to Governor Perry an immediate plan to reduce spending:  Congressional layoffs.  The latest polls show Congress with an approval rating of 9%.  Yep, they’ve broken any record that I can think of and crossed the borders of  The Land of The Single Digit, which can be found just to the Right of Uzbekibeki-beki-beki-stan-stan.   I assure you, that if I had ever had an evaluation that found my competence level to be 9 out of a possible 100, I would have been terminated on the spot.  I would be fortunate to not have had that employer call the State Board of Nursing .  Nine is an unimaginable level of incompetence.  Therefore, since we really don’t have the ability to discharge them en masse, we might as well lay a bunch of them off. They’re really not accomplishing much, so  we’ll never miss them, and we’re likely to save a bundle in salary and benefits.  Every nickel counts, so the 9 percenters can join the ranks of the unemployed with the 99 week’ers and the 99 percenters.  When – and if -they are called back to work, they might just have a better grip on things.  I doubt that the corporate entities for whom they labored will have much to do with them now that their usefulness has waned.  (The affected legislators might just wish that they belonged to a union at that point.)

If the train slows down somewhat, the borders of The Land of The Giant Flip-Flop may actually cross us.  TLOTGFF is the only laterally mobile nation on earth, moving from right to left, or left to right, as deemed necessary by its ruler.  The other countries are not at all happy with its encroachment tendencies, but fear that the well-groomed and charming, but rogue state may dismantle their borders and exile the population to third world nations if they become annoyed.

Other satellite nations of varying sizes may be visible from the Right side of the train.  These nations are undergoing occasional massive and transformational population shifts, so border crossings may take a little time in order to allow the stream of citizens  to change locations.  I hope that you brought something to read during these stops.  If not,  you can purchase one from the hoards of book vendors running alongside the train.  Or, just look out the window and enjoy the view.

I honestly wish that I could tell you that this train will take us to a better place, but I can’t.  So, just enjoy your visit to Uzbekibeki-beki-beki-stan-stan.  The scenery is great, and ever variable.

This is an open thread.
