China is passing us as number one
The EPA war on coal fired utilities has with a vengeance begun
40 percent of our power is created by coal
How can we replace that overnight and at what toll
The new regs to be imposed will flush 224,000 jobs down the drain
While fracking for more natural gas is detrained
For every one power plant running on coal here that the regs shut down
China will be building three and laughing at the ineptness of our clowns
West Virginia with only 4 percent of its power from noncoal source
Lights across the state all going out as these regs run their course
A one percent drop in GNP should be worthy of media note
Yet no pages of news the mainstream media seems to devote
When will the fawning over this President end?
When will the media recognize the continuing trend?
Pelosi can still with her wrinkled face Bush on the VA blame
Mainstream with a straight face can come up with the it's the weather game
Big news flash to the lackeys of the press room
If we drop at all next quarter we are back in recession gloom
Where are the jobs, where are the jobs, where are the workers in the workforce who have quit?
To paraphrase VP Garner this administration's record is not worth a warm bucket of spit
