A Remedy For The Blue State Blues

 

 

If blue state taxpayers feel that they will get burned

When Trump’s tax plan takes more of what they’ve earned,

These Dem states should instruct

Their taxpayers to deduct

Their federal taxes on their state tax returns.

 

 

 

 

Alternative Facts

 

 

One quantum physicist had a theory of light.

Another had one as different as day and night.

And so it came to pass

Both were tested at last.

Turns out these conflicting theories were both right.

 

 

 

 

Music To My Ears

 

 

James Comey received a letter of termination,

So this will be to the betterment of our nation.

A country song comes to mind,

And I’ve adapted this line:

Comey’s leavin’ has been a long time a-comin’.

 

 

 

 

Money And 23andMe

 

 

The info that is collected by 23andMe

Could cost Tom, Dick, and Harry at lot of money.

Pre-existing condition,

Or existing condition

Could be exploited by health insurance companies.
