We paid our dues, where’s our change?

Full Lyrics

Dear Mr. President we honor you today sir

Each of us brought you $5,000

It takes a lot of Benjamins to run a campaign

I paid my dues, where’s our change?

We’ll vote for you in 2012, yes that’s true

Look at the Republicans — what else can we do?

Even though we don’t know if we’ll retain our liberties

In what you seem content to call a free society

Yes it’s true that Terry Jones is legally free

To burn a people’s holy book in shameful effigy

But at another location in this country

Alone in a 6×12 cell sits Bradley

23 hours a day (and) night

The 5th and 8th Amendments say this kind of thing ain’t right

We paid our dues, where’s our change?

    you know this guy was born on a lucky star.  I won’t vote for him – Ill write my dog Buster in – or if Mitt is running, who knows.

    But I am way happy to see his serene highness being ruffled a bit – supremely happy.  

  1. I don’t know but I bin told

    New World Order is real cold

    911 and Northwoods too

    Make a fine deceptive brew

    Eisenhauer Bill and John

    Warned us all but now they’re gone

    Fiat money Madoffed me

    Ponzi scam for all to see

    401s for you and me

    Built the Chinese Factory

    Drywall dogfood kid toys too

    Come back as a toxic brew

    Bilderbergers came to town

    Mortgaged it then burnt it down

    Bill and Turner Holdren too

    Think there are too many of you

    Spanish flu and birdies too

    Make a fine and deadly brew

    Birther, bagger tin foil hatter

    What you say don’t really matter

    NSA knows all you say

    Is the SWAT team on their way

    Thank you Satan

    Yes we can

    Stuff em all into the van

    Myth for me a myth for you

    Taliban and Qeada too

    Bases tunnels great big towns

    Way down deep beneath the ground

    Spray all day and spray all night

    Nothing there for you to sight

    GMO and pharma too

    Frankenfood for me and you

    I don’t need no fucking raise

    Cause I can see the end of days

    If we should we make it through

    Flying cars for me and you

    I think Obama is the opportunity to see how the emergent international ruling class operates.

    In fact, the differences between the Democrats and Republicans are the same differences that exist between any major rivalry in professional wrestling–actually even less. If you notice all the differences are usually tribal and cultural and all about appearances rather than substance. As long as we are hypnotized by the American political soap-opera presented in the media we will continue to be clueless.

    Pretty much everything covered in the media is misdirection–some of the facts are true (but only some) but the spin the overall narrative is a complete fabrication in the classic PR sense. What we see/hear in the news is the sum total of all the PR operators in the country and only that.
