THE GRAND OLLAMA HEARS FROM HIS POLLSTER
Your Serenity! I have worrisome news. I have taken a poll of the flock and
they are giving you a tails down.
Why, what has happened?
Your Serenity! They say you spend your time with the fancy vicunas, in their
lush high pastures and you have left the llamas to graze on scrub land.
But I have done so much for them ...
They say you give with one hand and take with the other.
But didn't I give them health care?
Yes, at prices they say they can't afford, and the rich cougars are eating
their lunch -- I mean them for their lunch.
Haven't I given them a payroll tax cut?
But what will happen to their care when the reduced payroll taxes cannot
fund it. They are saying you are making holes in the safety net big enough
for an old world pachyderm or camel to drop through let alone a little llama.
Didn't I give them rewards just a year or so ago?
They say you gave the biggest chunks to the fat cats who don't need it -- the
Citicougars, the BoAcougars and the like.
What can I do? Nobody understands. I just tried to please everyone.
Your Serenity! That's how you please no one.
