Joe Biden and the Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly.  To catch the fly, she swallowed a spider.  To catch the spider, she swallowed a bird…and so it went until she met her demise by swallowing a horse.

So it seems with Joe Biden.

You’ll remember his initial spate of executive decisions, essentially cancelling everything President Trump had done. From that point, it seemed that everything Biden did was a bigger disaster than the one before it. There was an old President who cancelled a pipeline. He opened the border to cover the pipeline. He caused inflation to cover the border. He botched Afghanistan to cover inflation.

Like the old lady who swallowed a fly, Biden never learns from his blunders.

Where does a president who has made these colossal blunders go from here?

The old lady who initially swallowed the fly (Biden’s executive orders) immediately swallowed a spider that wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her to catch the fly. But she kept escalating the situation until she swallowed a horse, and that did her in. The question then becomes: what is Biden’s horse?

It could be taxing, spending, and the national debt.

The pandemic opened the door for massive government spending. Trump did some of it, and now Biden wants to take it to levels never before seen.   If the so-called Infrastructure Bill passes and also the so-called Human Infrastructure Bill passes, Biden will have added more than $6 trillion to the debt.

This seems unsustainable and could be the “horse” that wrecks the country. If you don’t know what Cloward-Piven Theory is – please learn because we are seeing it in action.

Of course, Biden’s big Afghanistan blunder has yet to play out.

What if China decides to invade Taiwan, and Russia moves against Ukraine? What if Kim Jong Un decides Biden is weak and he sends a nuclear warhead to Japan or to some U.S. affiliate? What if al Qaeda decides to mount another 9/11-style attack?

Biden might very well swallow a horse and it still wouldn’t cover up the mess he’s made.

Another thing that might destroy the country is the horrible divisiveness that we’ve seen in the country since a street thug named George Floyd committed several crimes and a police offer was convicted of his “murder.”

Abortion, the great religion of the Left, is almost displaced by the new religion of “diversity.” Every city and school district now must have a Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) officer to make damn sure that we stay divided. And nothing divides likes diversity.

Then there’s the “horse” of outright insanity that has gripped the nation.

We have schools that allow boys to urinate in the girls’ restroom. We have boys playing on girls’ sports teams and school officials seem to think this is normal. We have men who think they’re women and women who think they’re men.

Local libraries have stubble-faced men wearing rouge and lipstick reading to our children during Drag Queen Story Hour. Worse, about half the population sees nothing wrong with this.

Companies like Coca-Cola, now known as “Woca-Cola,” have embraced the lunacy. For some unknown reason, almost all large corporations decided at the same time that “woke” was the way to go.

College campuses have become citadels of ignorance, falsehoods, and race-based hatred of our country. For his part, Joe Biden is right in the middle, cheering for this stupidity.

America is in a lot of trouble as Biden makes bigger blunders by the week.

We are seeing the power of the mob and Biden urges it on.

If Portland has racial insurrection, then Seattle must as well, and then your city. If the Springfield School District has a DEI officer, then Riverdale must have one. And then your school district. Not one of them is independent in any way.

New media, more woke than any other part of society, decides that “black” must be “Black,” but “white” shall remain a lower-case word to show how enlightened we are and how inferior white people have become in modern America. Divisive? You bet, and they do it for that very reason.

Instead of being one people under the flag and the Constitution, the flag is labeled a symbol of hate, and the court system views the Constitution as nothing more than a distraction. “A woman’s right to abortion is in there,” they scream, but it’s not.

Under the Constitution, Roe v. Wade is no more a law that Caitlyn Jenner is a woman. Jenner is no more a woman than officer Derek Chauvin committed murder. As Tucker Carlson correctly said, the jury’s verdict in the Floyd case was: “Please don’t hurt us.”

The “Insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol paled in comparison to the summer of insurrection that was nationwide: CNN’s “fiery but mostly peaceful protests.” When the news media lies by direct order of a CEO, and the staff doesn’t walk out, we have a problem. And where is Joe Biden?

Joe Biden is about the business of swallowing how own personal horse.

Biden, his utterly insipid vice president, insufferable “news” networks like CNN, and our failing educational system are all contributing to the fall of the Great Experiment.

When the old woman swallowed the fly, she had a manageable situation. Perhaps she did with the ingestion of the spider that jiggled inside her. But it was downhill from there until she swallowed the horse, and that was all she wrote.

Joe Biden has undone Trump’s excellent economy. He has canceled a pipeline and contributed to the undoing of America’s energy independence. He has caused massive inflation in a country where it was under control for decades. He has woked-up our military and put leftists like Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark Milley in charge. He’s made a shambles of the border and immigration policy. The disasters keep piling up.

Right now, I’d say his swallowing has taken him up to the point of the goat, and maybe even to the cow. That was when the old lady swallowed the horse.

She’s dead of course.

“There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly” Lyrics

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly – Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a spider
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her!
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly – Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a bird;
How absurd to swallow a bird!
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her!
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly – Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a cat;
Fancy that! She swallowed a cat!
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her!
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly – Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady that swallowed a dog;
What a hog, to swallow a dog!
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her!
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly – Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a goat;
She just opened her throat and swallowed a goat!
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog,
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her!
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly – Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a cow;
I don’t know how she swallowed a cow!
She swallowed the cow to catch the goat,
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog,
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her!
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly – Perhaps she’ll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a horse;
She’s dead, of course!
