The MO Colossus

Not like the brazen machine of Chicago fame,
With conquering laws astride from boundary to boundary;
Here at our river-crossed, westerward gate shall stand
A mighty state with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
MO of Ex-IL-es. From her beacon-hand
Glows nation-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The river-bridged land that two cities frame.
“Keep, Progressive lands, your gangster pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your energetic, your wealthy,
Your middle classes yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your oppressive Lakeshore.
Send these, the employers, taxation-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the gateway door!”

(inspired by this article and the original poem “The New Colossus”)


Just in case you don’t know what happened to the promised economic recovery, this humorous video will make it clear.

The bottom line is that government IS the problem.

Just a little humor in this post.  Dana Loesch of The Dana Show on FM NewsTalk 97.1 is taking nominations for czar positions in honor of the inordinate number of czars appointed by the POTUS Obama.  Naturally, I’ve written in and requested to be appointed as blog czar.  Since I AM The Blog Czar, I hope to be appointed immediately.  As the official blog czar, I promise to rule with an Iron Fist and Impunity Hope and Change.
