Explosive Dust:

Good Morning Middle America, your King of Simple News is on the air.


“Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress, but then I repeat myself.” ─ Mark Twain.


We have a fuel crisis in America and our President, one George “Badlands” Bush, along with our illustrious Congress believe the way out of that little conundrum, is to burn up our food supply as ethanol.


The next problem that they are going tackle is a food shortage that has materialized out of nowhere. Say what?


Years ago I wrote in a column that suggested we needed farmers rather than lawyers in Congress for two reasons. One, they could provide the chickens necessary to give Congress the cue as to when to come in out of the rain, and two, we could speed up the decision making process.


Ya see, farmers don’t have all day to sit around wasting time. They would sit down at breakfast, apply some common sense, make rational decisions, and get back out in their fields by mid morning. Otherwise, those idiots in Washington would starve to death.


But we don’t send farmers to Washington, we send educated idiots that have been schooled in the beliefs of others and who have never had an original thought in their lives.


Want proof? We have a recession on our hands. Unemployment is skyrocketing, jobs are leaving the country in droves, housing has taken a ten count, the airlines are folding like cheap lawn chairs, and guess what the subject of discussion is in Congress today? Explosive dust.
