A new little ten minute to go along with the new one act, completed this weekend.

It's called Snake Charming for now. Probably will change the title.

Here's a bit of it:


Amazing isn’t it? How we make it possible for them to have a communist system by feeding their economy from our capitalist trough? The Chinese are a great pig, their nose down in the dirt and pine cones and corn that we call the invisible hand of self-interest. We have reached the end of all possible questions about which economic system functions: there is one answer. We have reached the end of all debate about what sort of political system is uncorrupt and proper: there is one answer. For any elected official or American citizen to acknowledge their legitimacy is to be treasonous against all that was once good and holy and pure about the United States and for that reason I say: Have you no decency Mr. President? Have you nothing, sir, that allows you to rise to the level of putrid chemical moist waste? A second term shall be denied you. A second term shall be your Waterloo, much like Waterloo was Napoleon’s Waterloo and Carthage was Rome’s Carthage.
