1 Corr 4:5
Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.
In order to tell this story, we need to look back on a little history to set the stage:
Sometimes seeing the words right in front of you is helpful. So Jed’s story is really pretty similar to guy we know as Senator Angus King, ME-I. The words in para reflect our man Angus:
Come and listen to my story about a man named Jed (Angus)
A poor mountaineer (VA transplant flatlander), barely kept his family fed,
And then one day he was shootin at some food,
And up through the ground come a bubblin crude.
Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea. (Cash from energy)
Well the first thing you know ol Jed’s (Angus’s)a millionaire,
The kinfolk said “Jed (Angus) move away from there”
Said “Californy(Washington, DC) is the place you ought to be”
So they loaded up the truck and they moved to Beverly (DC)
Hills (the Senate), that is. Swimmin pools, movie stars. (more money & corruption)
Old Jed (Angus) bought a mansion, lordy it was swank
Next door neighbor’s the president of the bank.(friends with McCains and Rothschilds)
Lotta folks complaining but the banker found no fault
‘Cause all Jed’s (Angus’s) millions, was a-sitting in the vault!
Redemption funds. Stocks and bonds. (hmm, trafficking?, drugs?,power?, corruption?, whatever I can protect sitting on the Senate Intel Cte?).
Well now it’s time to say good bye to Jed (Angus)and all his kin.
And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin in. (ya I fooled the Maine voters again in 2018)
You’re all invited back next week to this locality
To have a heapin helpin of their hospitality
Hillbilly (elitism in your face you poor useless eaters) that is.
Set a spell, Take your shoes off.
Y’all come back now, y’hear? (suckers!)
In part two, we’ll start into the specifics on how a carpetbagger from VA comes to Maine and makes it big.
