Life on this President’s Day… a poem

Manafort’s maudlin

Perceptive he’ll perish in prison

Gates and Flynn comply…

Consider what else has arisen

Roger Stone arrested

In relation to GRU

Michael Cohen has been indicted

No that’s nothing new

Papadapolous ignored

Coffee’s inconsequential

Trumpsters pay taxes

NOW they’re no longer reverential

Who funded the GOP,

Rich guys pay nothing, tax bill?

Middle class workers, never win,

Trump’s base blind… until:

“I almost fell out of my chair. I could not believe it, I voted for Trump. I thought he was going to be good for this country, but when I got that phone call [about the taxes I owed], that’s it, I’m done.” ~Beth Callori of Long Island. “

Beth blind before to the bad

Donald Trump had committed

Treason, caged kids,

Climate deregulation permitted

The 3 richest Americans,

3, now have more money

Than the poorest half

Laughable, but not at all funny

Despite “trickle down” tax cuts,

They never worked in the past

46% of all new income

Has been amassed

By the greedy, wealthiest,

1% of the U.S.

It’s tax time. Trump’s own base

Is paying thousands more, not less

The rich warn of socialism…

Sensibilities attacked

Don’t admit you were fooled,

Ignore every well proven fact

The wealthy were taxed

Under Kennedy and Johnson:

70%— This year taxes:


Rich were taxed 91%

By Eisenhower

The funders of this GOP

Majority power

Penned tax laws, Koch, Adelson, Mercers

Then offshore their spoils

As Republicans profit

From interests in Putin’s oil

Tax Refund Fiasco Is Political Payback For Republicans

‘I trusted you!’ Trump voters seethe after realizing they’re getting screwed by the GOP’s tax plan

Tax code changes leave Americans asking, ‘What happened to my refund?’

The richest 0.00025 percent owns more wealth than bottom 150 million Americans: study

Amazon Will Pay a Whopping $0 in Federal Taxes on $11.2 Billion Profits
