We Three Keys of UBS Are by leighmf

Verse

We Three Keys of UBS are
hiding ingots, jar after jar.
See our Shamrocks, crossed keys to our locks-
we'll pay the fine, har-de-har.

Chorus

Ho...Ho...I've been wondering, day and night,
how you keep it out of sight.
Plundered nations, sumptuous rations-
history isn't writ quite right.

Verse

Standard Oil had a few foes.
Noble men with Roosevelt rose.
Early on they pressed us their Key
for the day when the shadow bank froze.

Chorus

Ho...Ho...I've been wondering, day and night,
how you keep it out of sight.
Plundered nations, sumptuous rations-
history isn't writ quite right.

Verse

War, Depression, Sickness, Despair,
Viennese pastry lighter than air!
With an E-Manual full of forgotten
account numbers, I declare.

Chorus

Ho...Ho...I've been wondering, day and night,
how you keep it out of sight.
Plundered nations, sumptuous rations-
where's the book that adds up right?

And so, with this poem I commence this New Year posting Problems in Banking and Christiana Securities Mathematics, (at the latter link, some introduction), boiled down in the simplest, cleanest language I know, Addition and Subtraction.

GM Shows Why We Need Medicare for All

Thom plus logo General Motors just pulled healthcare for 50,000 workers. There are some Democratic candidates suggesting that people love their health insurance companies, but this calculated move by a giant corporation that you and I helped bail out proves that employer sponsored healthcare is just another tool to control workers.
