The Lyrics

Disclaimer: I do NOT like (and do not make a habit of) submitting more than two songs per day, but breaking news never conforms to my schedule. As of 4 P.M. on August 1, an apparent agreement to raise the U.S. debt ceiling has been reached. Whew! We've been told by Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner that failure to do so would cause unimagined catastrophe. We've been told by President Obama that he "couldn't guarantee" that Social Security checks and military pay would arrive at all. Lesser spokesmen have predicted global economic meltdown, a new Great Depression, and even more horrible consequences. If the agreement falls apart, will certain doom still occur? Well, we'll see. The calculated terrifying of the public, however, was a new low in American politics. ;D

Why is D.C. still debating?
Here's the deadline - August Two.
Geithner says it's the end of the world
If raised debt ceiling won't go through.

Why are they still calculating?
Don't they know it's Judgment Day?
O. tells us it's the end of the world.
Raise taxes or lose Triple-A!

There's shameless demagouging and misleading,
For scaring people justifies the end.
These same agencies yet - said sub-prime's a great bet!
The left still demands more tax and spend.

Tea Party - stop remonstrating.
It's just one step - don't be tense.
Dems will claim it's the end of the world
And tag you with the consequence!

Will this save our credir rating?
Is the downgrade just delayed?
Will all this be the end of the world?
If so, can this mess be unmade?

Skeeter Davis, from nearby Grant County Kentucky, revealed her heritage by performing this song. She pronounced the word "end" as "ind" every time. ;D

Disaster has been averted, for a few more days. The kook who predicted the end of the world in May, also had an October date for an even more final doomsday, so we'll have to keep a watch out for that, too.
