Money For Nothing

Friday, April 08, 2011

The Federal fiscal year begins 1 October - every year. No exceptions. Except when the Senators and Congress can't get it together and do their JOB and pass a budget. Three months PAST the deadline for the budget, and they're still making temporary patches. Federal employees and agencies are threatened. Even if you don't work for the Feds, you probably use some of the agencies (Social Security, National Parks, VA Hospital and clinics, tax refunds...) Meanwhile, these idiots are guarenteed their paychecks! Grrrr



Dire Straits 1985

I want my MTV

Now look at them yo-yo's that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' and your chicks for free


Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Lemme tell ya them guys ain't dumb
Maybe get a blister on your little finger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb


We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these colour TV's


(one verse deleted for offensive language)

Gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
Gotta move these colour TV's


I shoulda learned to play the guitar
I shoulda learned to play them drums
Look at that mama, she got it stickin' in the camera
Man we could have some


And he's up there, what's that? Hawaiian noises?
Bangin' on the bongoes like a chimpanzee
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Get your money for nothin' get your chicks for free


We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchens deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these colour TV's


Look a' here
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on your MTV
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' and your chicks for free
Money for nothin' and chicks for free


Money for nothin' and your chicks for free

Look at that, look at that

Money for nothin' and your chicks for free
I want my, I want my, I want my MTV
Money for nothin' and chicks for free



(Fade)
I want my, I want my, I want my MTV

    Let's make members of Congress have to live on Social Security, instead of those insane pensions they get, for what? Work, and I mean that in parentheses, for maybe 4-5 months out of the year, and now they're entitled to income the rest of their lives? Not fair! I'd say, it's time we have a mass uprising and protest this immense gap between what the workers of this country earn and can expect for retirement, and what the legislators make!

    Yeah they should go without pay during this period! Then they'd get it figured out real fast.

    *clapping and cheering*

    So right.... I can't believe they have got to the point where our military (the ones who put their lives on the line for us... ) Is only getting half their pay.... What would congress do if they can't pay their bills cuz their employer wasn't paying them?!?! Who do they have to "turn" to?!?!

    As one who appreciates the Service many provide for our Country... Thank You Service Men and Women for Your Job well done -- Some of still notice....
