"Low Budget": A Rather Sad Soundtrack For Sequestration

Posted: Updated:

"Sequester" sounds significantly sexier than it is. As in, "Sequester"? I don't even know 'er. See, I was right. For far too many Americans wondering what's going on, there's nothing at all sexy or funny about this rather shameful moment in American history and about the pathological failure of our government to work together and work big things out. So with that exceedingly depressing thought in mind, here are my Songs For The Sequester -- along with a few free suggestions from my followers at www.twitter.com/Wildaboutmusic.
