A Gov't Carol: The 12 Ways of Spending
In the spirit of all the Christmas specials that are hitting the air, we thought we would return again this year to sing a little number about the “12 Ways of Spending” the government decides we need.
Don’t feel that people in Texas should help pay for a bike path in Missouri? Well, the federal government says it’s necessary - and there’s a lot of similar programs.
Besides learning that many of us at the MRC are not good singers, we also hope you learn a little bit about some of the ways the government spends our money.
Rather than type them all out, we put 12 of them to a festive melody. Below is the final section of lyrics with links to information on the actual programs. Watch the video above to hear the song in its, uh...full musical glory. (CAUTION: We are not professional singers)
"The 12 Ways of Spending" (2013 version)
In my twelfth look at spending the government did for me:
Bag pipers piping (in Vermont)
Study Mexican hookers working (and dating)
Keep electric cars a humming
Study Brant Geese a-flying
Fund ObamaCare promoting
Stop washing hens (well, okay, chickens)
Fund “The Turtle’s Shell” (Crittenden Arts Council) performance
And a bike path in St. Louis, Missouri
