Not much new under the Sun

"I am not a good American...I prefer to form my own opinions" - George Carlin

Only some of the players have changed, but it all still holds true. And added to the equation are a few million dumbed-down knuckleheads, all amarching in a row. Do you know how to spell lemmings?

This pretty much fits my mood at the moment:

Cheery!

jadedj said...

DSWS---Danke! I am always glad to perk up someone's day.

tnlib said...

Grim.

jadedj said...

tnlib---And I am almost certain you ain't talking 'bout the brothers...unless it's the Koch boys.

diane said...

Priceless. You are my hero today. I'm stealing this for my facebook page. xo d

jadedj said...

diane---Thanks for the ego boost...but, really, it belongs to the Kingston Trio.

diane said...

Still a great post, regardless. It's already been "lifted" twice off of my fb. :)

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

great great post.

jadedj said...

diane---Cool ditty.

YD G---I kind of knew you'd like this one ;-)

The more things change, etc., etc...

Harlequin said...

totally appropriate.... even if it is somewhat unnerving.

Mr. Charleston said...

What's most unnerving about this is that it was first performed in the early 60's. Only the names have changed. To protect the innocent.

jadedj said...

intell---Exactly.

Harlequin---Snappy tune though, eh?

Mr. C---Correctomento.

Mauigirl said...

It's so true, the more things change, the more they remain the same, as someone else said already. I get the same feeling when I listen to old Phil Ochs tunes. It's scary how nothing ever changes. Makes everything seem a bit futile, doesn't it?

jadedj said...

Mauigirl---Hey, long time no see.

Yes, futile definitely fits...my mood, at any rate.

Punch said...

I can't think of a single thing to say, that has not already been said.
By the Way, I'm not a witch!
Nor a Crook!
Dred Scott decision should have happened a long time ago.

jadedj said...

Punch---What does this have to do with dredd locks?

Tom Harper said...

That video gave me hope and joy. So you're saying the Rapture is coming?!? This heathen world will be destroyed, and all self-righteous Biblehumpers like me will be whisked up to Heaven. Hallelujah! Jesus I'm coming home!

jadedj said...

Tom---Yea verily, brother! Although, I have been praying for years that I not be raptured. The thought of spending eternity with nitwits and Pat Robertson, causes a certain sphincter muscle in my body to suck wind.

Mr. Charleston said...

Well, at least now we know where all the hot air comes from.

Susan said...

Wow, this says it all. Go nature--do it to our fellow man.

jadedj said...

Mr. C---You have a way of cutting right through the fog, as it were.

Susan---Disquieting maybe?

They're Rioting In Notre Dame

They're rioting in Notre Dame , they're starving in Haiti-am.
There's tsunamis in Japan, and Bank of America needs a bail-outam.
The whole world is starving with unemployed souls.
The Americans hate the Muslims, the Teabaggers hate the Poor and the non-white.
Chris O'Donnell hates to masturbate, Sarah Palin hates Bullwinkle.
And I don't like Obama very much!

But we can be horny, and thankful, and piss-proud,
For mans' been endowed with Viagra.
And we know for certain that some lovely day
Someone will take our Viagra away!

They're rioting in Paree, there's strife in Arizona for the emigree.
What nature doesn't do to us, will be done by our government!
