Parody Song Title:

"Take Our Checks Away"

Parody Written by:

Robert D. Arndt Jr.

The Lyrics

Taken from the 1986 "Top Gun" soundtrack. In parody this would now represent "Top Gov!!!"
[Chorus:]
Every few months we’re gonna have to play this foolish game
Sequestration and Government Shut-downs are so insane
Turning and returning to ideological slides (lies)
Watching the destruction as Middle America pays

Take our checks away
Take our checks away

Waiting while they’re debating still anticipating shrugs
Never hesitating to keep blaming the _other_ ones
Turning and returning to ideological slides (lies)
Watching the destruction as Middle America pays

Take our checks away
Take our checks away

Keep arguing opposing views, adding more furlough days
While Billions lost in revenue, hurting the economy
As deadlines slip away, we are afraid

Take our checks away
Take our checks away

[Chorus]
Every few months we’re gonna have to play this foolish game
Sequestration and Government Shut-downs are so insane
Turning and returning to ideological slides (lies)
Watching the destruction as Middle America pays

Take our checks away
Default, bring on doomsday...

Fiscal-Apocalyptical Endgame!!!
More lunacy to come in Jan/Feb 2014...

The sequestration and shut-down are just extra paid vacations for a lot of federal drones who are sucking the lifeblood out of what is left of a moribund economy. Send 'em all home, starting with the President and Congress and let 'em learn to forage for a living like the rest of us.

Further still, it seems that the President and Congress are detached from the reality of how the Middle Class and the poor actually live in America... which is sad. Elected officials just don't care anymore about the offices they have been elected to. They live in ideological realms of extreme Left and Right.
