Let's Go To Las Vegas And Vote Them Out!

Updated on July 31, 2010

Let’s All Go To Vegas And Vote Them Out!


Let’s put a yellow ribbon

On the back of the bus.

Let’s sail across the country.

Toward Las Vegas.

There are so many acts,

To soften the facts.

We’ll see our own kind!

We run in packs!

They have slot machines,

That will drown out the sirens.

They’ll crank up the blues,

To over-shadow the news.

We’ll place a big magnetic sign,

On our big butt bus’s behind.

“You can’t fix stupid, But you can vote them out!”

We'll say it loud and even shout!

I’ll leave my “bus” running.

Because it’s hot outside.

I’ll need that air “conditioned",

When I come back for a ride.

I’ve got money,

I’ve got gas.

If the peasants are miffed at my waste,

They can kiss my wasteful …Ask,

Not what your country can do for you!

Just do as we tell you to.

I’ve done my deeds for all my gain.

I’ve flaunted my wealth till I’ve gone insane.

They say in Vegas,

The house always wins,

I’ll throw money in the toilet,

I’ll throw money at my sins.

I’ll see a few shows.

I’ll eat at buffets.

Where days are all nights,

And nights are all days.

I’ll listen to bards.

I’ll worship cards,

Look at the scantily clad,

While going mad.

There is no winner,

In Las Vegasland.

But I can drown out,

The sufferings of Man!

The poor will always be with us.

Might as well be in Las Vegas.

Where no children are malnourished.

And where fake people flourish.

I can get a rub on my nub,

And even a hot tub.

Go for a swim,

With a girlfriend that’s dim.

But when I return,

My paupers will learn,

I am the boss,

And they’ll cover my loss.

I’ll tell them how to vote,

Because I have the clout!

“You can’t fix stupid,

But you can vote them out!”

This hub is dedicated to SUV owner who left his SUV running while he shopped, I came, I shopped, I left, and he shopped!

Yes, we are glad you intend to do just you want to do no matter what the cost, no matter how many lives are lost, no matter how many people could be helped by your waste.

I drive a 94 Caddy. I bought it used. It's better on my neck, back, and hips than any other car. It's reliable, except for right now the head gasket is blown. Ordinarily my Caddy gets 24 mpg on the highway and closer to 19 mpg in the city.

I had no intention of writing a hub about the arrogance of some SUV drivers.

It's the second one in two days that was running while someone went shopping.

No, there was no one in the SUV.

No, I'm not the SUV police.

If they can snub,

I can write a hub!

So what's the rub?

Just don't like waste, Bub!

Should millions of people just let their vehicles run while shopping?

You say, "if we can afford it".



I didn't know that Obama said anything about Las Vegas before I wrote this. While searching for Las Vegas pics I read where he said something to the negative side.

I then read that he put is ethics in reverse and apologized.

Sorry Las Vegas, I disapprove of all gambling, whether it's Las Vegas, Reno, the stock market, insurance, the state "lottos", our illegal system...oops...injustice system, etc.!

Yes, I can hear your sigh of relief.

      That's the deal. We can't change anything in the booths. Our candidate won't make it. Whoever that is. Nope. Things will be, what they've been.

      Hey Micky Dee, I have to agree (whatya' know I made a rhyme), but we've probably got better odds at the crap tables than the crap we'll have to choose from in the voting booths.

      God bless you TINA V. Las Vegas is just a money pit.

      I was smiling while reading the poem. It may be a funny hub, but with lots of sense. Just as it says, Las Vegas is the sin city! True to its words, but I’m at your side.

      YeeHaw! Ginger Meow!

      I like your "Amen"!

      You make me grin!

      Let's get the bikes,

      And go for a spin!

      We keep on extracting the gas from the earth,

      So you can run you SUV, for what it's worth.

      Let's hope the earth opens up wide,

      and swallows you and your SUV ride.

      Because when you suck all the liquid from the ground,

      There will be nothing to power your ride around.

      Watch out for me on my bike while you drive your truck,

      because with your lack of conscience you obviously don’t give a $#@#.

      Yo Petra! We can't really vote them out. This system works for the people it's supposed to work for. These folks with the bumper sticker think THEY can vote stupid out. Stupid is driving the bumper sticker. They're like the Catholic Church with pedophiles. They just shuffle the politicians but nothing changes. It's America not facing reality. Thank you Ma'am!

      You are right about the waste and the arrogance of the SUV drivers - the bigger the better - that's the American way! You are also right about the politicians; the minute they get to the infested D.C. you can't tell who they are and what they are anymore. As you said, we can't fix stupid, but we can vote them out...and then what?

      Yo CYBERSUPE! The real deal is that these folks who waste are the ones they say they want to get shed of. They complain about Democratic waste and never complain about Republican waste. They don't curb their own waste. They WASTE! They lie! And forget Democrats! They all become Republicans after election! All politicians are owned by business. It's America. Capitalism. Business. Big business. Sell as fast as you can. It's like the chasing the speed of light. If you can go fast enough, sell fast enough you can out-run your mistakes. Consume!!! Sell! Sell everything! Sell everybody! There are no Democrats after election.

      Unfortunately, our future will not be improved at the voting booths.

      If we carefully examine the truths.

      Not with the cards stacked as they are.

      They reshuffle the cards to again make war.

      We should unitedly take a stand,

      Against the unbridled political man!

      Back in my youth, when I was soaring,

      If people knew the truth I might have been exploring.

      I'm glad that I'm all past that now.

      It's too late too ride a bull, or even a cow!

      Thanks Katie and Akirchner!

      Your poetry as usual is so amusing! Thanks for the giggles - I was there so many years ago it is absolutely absurd - like 33? I am definitely a sheltered old lady and wonder if I'd like it any better than the last time I was there? Cute idea, Micky!

      What a nice whimsy about a whimsical place that's really into some serious taking of cash over foot, Vegas what they get their hands on stays there...

      This is one of your best and oh soo true.

      The casino takes all, none left for you

      I used to go there about every four months, back when

      Happy that i will never have to go back there again

      The President spoke out against people going to vegas

      That,s where the right-wing wealthy go on hiatus

      Really there,s nothing we can do about their wasteful

      life style,

      but when it all runs out, we can think of them and smile
