Down in Bankruptcy Court # 9

Bankruptcy Court No. 9

In the first 224 or so years of the United States, we ran up an awe-inspiring 5,807,463,412,200.06 (5.8 trillion dollars) of debt. Debt, that like all debt, incurs interest payments — that is a continuing burden to the nation and its taxpayers and businesses.

But since 9/28/2001, the President and the Congress have managed to spend and borrow their way into a 44% increase in the national debt in just six years for a total debt of $8,351,722,841,145.07. (8.35 trillion dollars)

So this song of trailer trash economics is sent out to the President and all his men…

Bankruptcy Court No. 9

My baby left me
left me sad and cryin…
she said I’m takin the plastic
leaving all these bills behind

I got a hearing monday down in
bankruptcy Court Number 9…
My baby won’t be there with me
and neither will my credit line

Oh baby those checks you wrote
to the dress and jewelry stores
You hung so much bad paper
they won’t take my (dough) cash no more

Telecredit’s got a file on you
takes a thousand floppy disks
TRW blew a main frame
just counting your bad checks

You drove me to the poorhouse
and shoved me thru the door
but first ya picked my pocket
to make sure they was no more
