"When a legislature decides to steal some of our rights and plans to use police force to accomplish it, what's the real difference between them and the thief? Darn little! They hide behind the excuse that they're legislating democratically. The fact they do it by a majority vote has no moral significance whatsoever. Numerical might does not constitute right, no more than a lynch mob can justify its act because a majority participated." ~ H.L. Richardson
Happy Independence Day, Daddy
[to the tune of "America the Beautiful" in honor of the US "handover" of Iraq--to George's dad's oil buddies!]
Oh beautiful for "sovereignty" Where we pull all the strings Our armies back our chosen spy Just see what freedom brings! America, America Impose its will on thee 'til all concede or else they'll bleed for all eternity
Oh beautiful for interims Where we impose the laws With war crimes pacts and oil contracts Relieved of all their flaws America, America God smite our raghead foe An iron fist to terrorist! And all who dare say no
Oh beautiful revenge on him Who tried to kill your Dad Who sold him those munitions grim And weapons by the scad America, America The Big Lie be your friend With armies' might, pursue your right To Empire without end
Oh beautiful for nations bought Like pearls upon a strand Where liberating army sought Our oil beneath their sand America, America May no one bar thy way Old Glory waves o'er all your knaves On "independence" day!
