Join The Good Luck Party

JOIN THE GOOD-LUCK PARTY 

WSJ  OP ed , 14July2014 :  

THE FULL-TIME SCANDAL of PART-TIME AMERICA

 “According to the Bureau of  Labor Statistics 

almost 91 million people over age 16 aren’t working, a record high.”  

 

One out of every six  American workers can’t find a job or are stuck with 

low wage, part‑time work. Many  unemployed workers have been jobless for >40 weeks, 

We have entered the worst economic slump since the Great Depression of the 1930s. 

Robots and automation will displace many more millions of workers.

What can we do about it?   We can sing! And we can Join the GOODLUCK PARTY.

———————————————————————-

The Good-Luck Party is the party for me,

To put our wealth where it ought to  be:

Use excess buckies from the rich Luckies

To make jobs for all: that’s prosperity.

 Put wealth where it should be, Join with the G.L.P.

 

The Dem-Reps and the Rep-Dems too

say:  “We’re too busy to care about you.”

Rich guys buy the power they pay for:

“ our kids’ll  inherit a few bucks more.”

Put wealth  where it should be,  Join with the G.L.P.

 

Luck’s uneven, unfair and unsound,

For a better country, let’s spread the wealth around!

No one can say why some are rich, others poor,

Many hard workers have no money in store.  

Put wealth  where it should be, Join with the G.L.P.

 

The rich get richer  while Less-Luckies stay poor,

As the stock market churns out millionaires galore.

If this gap in wealth we don’t amend

Our country will wind up around the bend.  

Put wealth where it should be, Join with the G.L.P.

 

The Good-Luck Party is the party for me,

It will put our wealth where it ought to  be:

Use excess buckies from the rich Luckies

To make jobs for all; that’s true prosperity.

 Put wealth where it should be, Join with the G.L.P.
