Fluff Just Ain't Enough!

Updated on January 10, 2011

I get tired of too much fluff!

The fluff just ain't enough!

The ones that want NO CHANGE,

Are the ones who are deranged!

The rich are such twits,

And they could give two $#its,

About truth and compassion.

They sport the latest fashion.

They have health-care and eat the best of food.

If you show concern, you're just being rude.

They assault us with impunity.

They put us in our gated community.


They have theirs,

And they have their airs.

You’ll never notice the incision,

That will put your kids in prison.

And here is what the rich live and say:

"The poor are lazy and in the way.

I have mine I don't care about the poor fools.

I studied hard at several schools."

"It's capitalism! It's the best.

Screw everybody, while I feather my nest.

If you want some real healthcare,

You'd better sign up for WEALTHCARE."

"The real America has bombs to make!

We have communists to kill and cakes to bake!

The poor waited long for Mr. Obama.

But we can contain him and your mama!"

"And now of course, it's Super Bowl time.

Look another way while we commit our crime.

And while most of the world lives in darkness and sadness,

We'll get ready for basketball's March Madness."

"It's far more important to watch basketball,

As democracy continues to fall.

We'll allow some kids to play some ball,

But we are going to screw most of y'all!"

"Duke, UNC, Kentucky, and UCONN,

Keep watching TV while we con,

You and all the world with advertising,

While we do more of our disenfranchising."

"Healthcare without insurance,

Is dangerous without assurance,

That we crooks will have our cut,

While we nail you and screw your butt."


"If there is going to be communism,

We want it through capitalism!

It's only right that the higher one percent,

Will make every dollar and track every dollar spent."


"And while your sick @$$ is lying on a gurney,

Big business will profit, and so will my attorney.

But I have a message for the poorest,

Of this you can be surest,"


"Be born to the right father and mother,

Seek money and power like no other,

Salute the flag, bumper-sticker your car,

And you are sure to go pretty far."


"We don't give a damn about you!

And soon we'll corral you in a zoo.

This America, Land of the Free,

Is only the Land of ME!"


"If ever in doubt, and the view is hazy.

Just keep shouting, "The poor are lazy!"

For this is the Land of Opportunity!

And we will assail everyone with impunity."


"We will kill your children with your hope.

Call for change, we'll wash your mouth with soap.

We will kill your children every year,

And fill your lives with dread and fear!"


"There are no ifs, ands, or buts,

We rich hate your stinking guts!

We rich want the ocean shore!

We want the mountain tops and so much more!"

"We don't give a flip what you have to say.

You damn poor are in OUR WAY!

Now all of America, please give thanks,

For screwing the poor and saving the banks!”

Now send your puppets and the CIA,

To this hub and try to sway,

Me to back down from my words,

While you expose yourselves as corporate turds!

Micky Frickin' Dee!


This poem, "Fluff Just Ain't Enough" was inspired by the prolific poet and writer MFB.

"Happy Same Old Year To You.." is just one of the many poems that has inspired me to write.

Check out "Happy Same Old Year To You.." and many more over at MFB's place.

God bless MFB!

God bless these writers who have the conscience to write hard truths.

I've played and worshiped all the sports like many addicts.

It's time to shed distractions if they keep you brainwashed.

Sometimes "Fluff Just Ain't Enough"!

Wesman Todd Shaw
Wesman Todd Shaw

Sometimes, fluff ain't enough!

I've written about "our" apathy here in America with A Sincere Poem Of Apathy.

I've written about The Poor Rich Man!

I've written about how Satan disguises himself with Where Does Satan Dwell?.

I've written about a president who followed the footsteps of many others with Driving The Country Off A Cliff While Drunk.

I've written about the rich who have it "so" rough with The Affluent Blues.

I've hoped we could draw a line with Lines In The Sand.

I've written about the futility of voting for "these pigs" with Kings With No Clothes.

I've poked fun at the stupid fashion world with Labels Are Fables! Trashin' Fashion!

When a spokesperson for the rich wrong wingsuggested prisons for welfare mothers I wrote Republicans Have An Idea!

It's hard to belieeve that people will drive and drink and murder their way to and from sports arenas and bars while there are no deaths related directly to pot so I wrote Marijuana Lies. Now even Pat Robinson says that making criminals out of our youths and imprisoning Americans for smoking pot is stupid, insane, selfish, and just "goose-stepping to the Fatherland". But of course I'm paraphrasing.

I've written about "leaders" (yuck) who claim to be "conservatives" and Christians while they were doing Satan's work. With False Prophets-False Religions, I exposed some democrats as well. But religious idiots like to protect their own like the political idiots.

With Down And Out For Christmas! I let cartoons speak for themselves. This irked some right-wingers because it didn't kiss the ground that is owned by the 1% of America which is more than 95% of Americans own. Let me irk you lefties off some times with my favorite saying that I coined, "There are no democrats after election." You grass wing democrats are cute, cuddly, and lovable. I really love the way the grass roots people love the environment. But democrats - republicans - there all republicans who don't give a fig for our environment.

With Coincidences Of The World Trade Center 9/11 I talked about the sincerely ludicrous Coincidences Of The World Trade Center 9/11. Since then there are policemen and other witnesses to come forward and with reseach, the findings of the investigation into 911 was a terrible inside terrorist joke where justice is twarteds again like the JFK investigation and the MLK investigation.

With The Falsely Accused And Wrongly Imprisoned I wrote about the INJUSTICE SYSTEM OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! This is where the courts nationwide convict innocent people. Innocent people are churned into prison and executed for crimes they did not commit. I point out that North Carolina alone is rife with corruption. People have to pay the most money for the best lawyer and in some cases, a host of lawyers, so that they have a better opportunity to escape a court that is run by the same greedy lunatics as our congress.

With America's Forefathers And True History! I point out that our forefathers, not one of them I might add, walked on water. They owned slaves. But many Americans are disenchanted as they want others to believe that our forefathers began this nation "under God". My God does not imprison the NEWBORN!

God A few people who may work for the CIA or other clandestine organizations, will say I complain. I am not a patriot. They discredit everyone and anyone. But I've served my time. I've proven that I am a patriot to God first!

For some of you bullying political idiots that work for a political party and/or the spooks, please read Calling All Bullies!.

There are some who might challenge me on facts. I've written as factual as I can. I have made nothing up. I have gotten my material through books, magazines, newspapers, and the web.

And yes, I get some info from wikipedia. Wikipedia is accused, currently, of being manipulateed by the CIA and pedophiles.

I leave no stone unturned in order to arrive at my most logical conclusion.

I want and need information and lots of it, to make my rational decision.

At the same time - I trust nothing as being the absolute truth!

I could put sources down at the bottom of every page. Would Americans believe everything I write then? I hope not! Do your own research. Find out for yourself, the most logical truth. History is written by the captors, winners, new owners.

Seek all the information you can.

Follow every lead you can.

Believe nothing and trust your heart!

For all you folks who are ecstatically happy, go back to the ball-game.

Remember, when voting, vote for the best lawyer you can!

George Carlin - The Owners of America

Meet your owners!

I picked this George Carlin video up over at Wesman Todd Shaw's place.

It's on his hub:

Woody Guthrie, the Dust Bowl Troubadour's Songs of Patriotism, and Despair

Yo Wesman Todd Shaw! Thank you sir! God bless!

The term: "WEALTHCARE" comes from my friend justom (Tom and Justin).

justom  is "King of the One Liners"!

      A couple of things first, as an artist I can tell you, even trying to recreate the Celtic symbols is difficult let alone coming up with something original, as I often try.

      Two I think that perhaps the warnings on content should be looked at a different way not so much as bullying but that we are getting through to folks. I have been surprised at the amount of young folks that are awakening to the truth, perhaps I have underestimated the human race.

      I'm beginning to get the sense that TPTB (the powers that be) are done and know it, I feel in my heart the tide is turning. The colony on Mars is done, the Dumb's will only be a prison or tomb and the poor have almost had enough.

      Soon the lies won't fall on deaf ears, they will be told to empty space, hang in there bro only a few more switchbacks, do not quit when we are so close!

      Yo pmccray! It's so true. I get sick of the flag waving for the rich. America is not a country! It's a corporation. Every child born into America has a stock exchange number. Every person has a value. Sccrew this way of thinking. America needs to realize that the rich continually make sweatshops and inconcievable working condition all over the globe while imprisoning those who don't fit the mold. There is no justice in the courts. NC, alone, is rife with wrong convictions. Lawyers will never do the right thing in courts or congress. America is not the land of the free and businesses have made every square inch of Earth a prison. God bless!

      Carlin was so ahead of his time. Excellent words and damn fine informative hub. I can't stop laughing cause it is so full of truth. I watched a program today that showed a clip regarding a lottery for students, a lotto to see if by luck of the draw they might qualify for a quality education what a f##ing joke. Voted up, marked funny, awesome, beautiful, shared and bookmarked.

      Hubpages would not be the same without voices like yours. Please stay!

      Your few lines about the rich getting all the mountaintops and beaches (the best scenery for their homes) is mostly true. Thank heavens SOME of the rich people with hearts could see the handwriting on the wall and the National Park System was created to protect magnificent scenery for everyone to enjoy. State Parks and National forests were also set aside with legislation to keep some prime lands for everyone to enjoy. You know how I like nature and beautiful scenery!

      I remember visiting South Padre Island as a teenager and it was pretty much wide open with sand dunes and rolling waves of the Gulf of Mexico rolling in to the shore. The rolling waves are the same but most of the land is now filled with condos and houses and other lodgings built right up to the shoreline obstructing the view.

      Glad I saw it as I did years ago!

      Always Exploring! I love George Carlin too! What a treasure he has been! Thank you dear Ruby!

      Yo prettydarkhorse! I knew I'd have you as the Super Bowl fan. I remember football before the Super Bowl. I used to watch the old American Football League and the old NFL. My favorite team was the Baltimore Colts from the NFL and the Houston Oilers from the AFL. I loved this little running back named Charlie Toler.

      I watched basketball. I watched it all. But- when people are hooked on the surface illusions and miss the obvious signs of demise that hangs over the world - distractions should be for entertainment and relaxation, but not for blinding and medicating.

      I just see distractions coming from everywhere and even without out the obvious media distractions of entertainment, there are purposeful distractions to remove the eye from important issues. 911 is a prime example. Brainwashing commenced before the action took place, during, and continuously. Now we know of many lies told. God bless you prettydarkhorse! Enjoy the Super Bowl!

This hub is a fine tribute to your hubber friends who rebel against corruption and short-sighted leaders. And you too, don't run away. Keep on protesting.

      Oh it nice when you hear what you think in your head, while a great writer can place in in words in such a great way. Freedom, um not sure we have this manybe we never did, we just were so easly convinced in the big dream. I went to a doctor the other day, saying oh my pain in my back hurts me so much, and I told him my mattress was so old that I think the springs were poking me and it hurt. He looked seriously at me and said, "Well why don't you go buy a new bed?" I was shocked and said to him, "Hey manybe you can buy me a new bed, I can't afford a GOOD mattress but you can" He is Rich what does he know. Really a fantastic hub, Love it and I love you my friend...

      Lets get this straight! You are not going anywhere! Okay!

      We all want you here. Now just relax and open a really good bottle of'Madiran'the best French red and just smile at how many idiots are in this world then remember the dumbest are on the highest wages ! What can we do ? Nothing ! Look at Blair and wife and how they've carved up the e.c then the Kinnocks a whole family living on welfare i.e the money of the e.c.

      My dad brought me up on the saying 'if you let them ,the buggers will drive you mad'.

      Oops! comment about socialists being evil- well obviously they weren't socialists !

      I know talk is cheap when one is on a downer so hopefully you will feel great soon and just remember this picture of me when I was a younger being . place jersey channel Isles-miniature millionaire island. I used to sell a left wing newspaper on the streets and it was just normal for me to have elderly millionaire women approach me and hiss into my ear'get back to Russia'girl.

      Others would spit at me ,chuck apple cores at me and much,much worse. and what used to drive them crazy was the way I would just smile at them in a mocking way.

      good luck mickey and just keep on writing,jandee

      Hi Bobbi. My real concern right now is their arrogance. Their unaccountability.

      They want us to be accountable and they can't write programs? Maybe they should hire some folks that can write programs. It's obvious the fools they hired can't do the work. When I try to add links into the boxes, I have to repeat. I have to save. Do it over.

      It's obvious the "team" cannot answer emails. It's obvious to me that they are unaccountable. They may as well run for congress. God bless.

      Mentalist acer! God bless. I've written all that I've written, at least poetry, from Micky Dee's head. There are few ways to tell the same story twice. There are hubs I've written where I have had to repeat statistics and other info that are undoubtedly on the WWW. But if there is a poem - I have gone to my own head. I have not copied anything.

      If they can't understand this I need to be out of here.

      If there is no HUMAN touch on this hubpages- I need to be gone.

      If I cannot get a human reply- I should cease to contribute to the hubpages masters.

      The team is absolutely FRAUDULENT.

      I demand to know WHERE I'VE GOTTEN THIS HUB!

      But there is no representation from the hub-masters.

      It's a hidden government and I am opposed!

      Maybe the collapse of the economy was orchestrated, to get rid of some of the population. Not a conspiracy theory but it seems not a coincidence that they (guess who) want to do away with Social Security and many rich did bet against the economy and made much money. The housing boom was a coincidence? I tend to think not. We are running out of resources and the rich think they are the only people who have the right to walk and breathe. Maybe a systematic cleansing of the poorer?

      As always Sir Micky.. as always. I hope that this wasn't inspired by having to pay to have them let go your Brazils! Bugger... have they put your taxes up? As you say mate.. it's not about change... it's about making it! You take care buddy... you can always come down under and catch some really fish! Mind you... we've got a load of fluff here too! baaaaaaaaaah.

      Mickey, you write so well

      And I just love your stuff

      And something else I'll tell

      It sure as h*ll ain't fluff!

      Yes, bread and circus

      Is our daily diet

      So 'they' can control us

      And we don't riot.

      They know quite well

      That watching 'the game'

      Truth to tell

      Keeps the rabble all tame.

      But of blame there's enough

      For all to share.

      TV won't broadcast fluff

      If there's no one there.

      A solution came

      To our family

      F*** the game

      And shut off your TV!

      Put away your beer

      And hug your kid.

      Remember what's dear.

      You'll be glad you did.
