April 2006


This says it better than anyone else has to date – taking down the conspiracists in very few words.

Shut the fuck up, seriously. People are complaining about the film “forcing” the viewers to make conclusions about these men who decided to take down this plane. You fucks. They DO hate us. They DO hate America. They ARE monsters. There’s not other way to portray them. It’s not propaganda. This film walked a pretty neutral line. The director’s not even fucking American! I see no reason that Greengrass wouldn’t want to portray this as closely as possible, and I’m sure he did just that. And for those of you that think it’s totally fake and a complete lie (by our government), I have two points for you. First, it isn’t possible simply because of the number of people that would have had to be in on it. The NYPD, NYFD, ALL of Congress, the people onboard these flights, among many more, and those people would all have had to keep their mouths shut. Secondly, fuck you. I don’t think Bush is a saint, but if you honestly think the government orchestrated it all, why the fuck are you still here? If I believed that my government was that evil, I would have left years ago. To conclude, I originally thought it was too soon for this film, but it’s not. It reminds us how we should be thankful for all that we have, and that there are some real fuckers out there. Amazing film. As others have said, give Greengrass his best director nomination right now.

I'm not sure if this one counts as Part Three; the song's intention seems to be a bitter satire on both forms of political extremism.  The Leftists could use it as a criticism of the Bush administration, and the Right Wing could use it as a shot at the violence of lefty rioters and the murderous intentions of the left (and if you think I'm exaggerating, I know a few guys who say that they WOULD like to kill President Bush and the only thing that stop them is the fear of having Dick Cheney replace him).

GENESIS: "THE KNIFE"

(for those that trespass against us)
Tell me my life is about to begin
Tell me that I'm a hero
Promise me all of your violent dreams
Light up your body with anger
Now, in this ugly world
it is time to destroy all this evil
Now, when I give the word
get ready to fight for your freedom
Now –

Stand up and fight, for you know we are right
We must strike at the lies
That have spread like disease through our minds
Soon we'll have power, every soldier will rest
And we'll spread out our kindness
To all who our love now deserve
Some of you are going to die –
Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide

I'll give you the names of those you must kill
All must die with their children
Carry their heads to the palace of old
Hang them high, let the blood flow
Now, in this ugly world
break all the chains around us
Now, the crusade has begun
give us a land fit for heroes
Now –

Stand up and fight for you know we are right
We must strike at the lies
That have spread like disease through our minds
Soon we'll have power, every soldier will rest
And we'll spread out our kindness
To all who our love now deserve
Some of you are going to die –
Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide

We are only wanting freedom
We are only wanting freedom
We are only wanting freedom
We are only wanting freedom ("Freedom, freedom, freedom, freedom…")
We are only wanting freedom ("Things are getting out of control here today")
We are only wanting freedom ("OK men – fire over their heads!")
We are only wanting freedom

WE HAVE WON

Some of you are going to die
Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide.

Disturbed, “Just Stop”

Just stop enough of the venemous critical comments on my life
Just stop the judgment and all of your pseudo-involvement in my life
Sit back a moment, and look at the miracle starting in the light
Don’t stop a moment, and let the incredible happen knowing that

All that you want is to criticize
Something for nothing
And all that I want is forgiveness one more time
To be the best in the world

Just stop with all of your little deliberate problems with my life
Enough of all the crippling, terrible pain we feel inside
Step back a moment, remember how the miracle started in the light
Take back the torment; I’ll only enjoy this moment knowing that

All that you want is to criticize
Something for nothing
And all that I want is forgiveness one more time
I know that
All that we want is to feel inside
Some kind of comfort
With all that we’ve done
We can hide
We’ll be the best in the world

All I ever wanted was to be a real source of compassion
From the moment that we found ourselves drowning
All I ever wanted was to be a real source of compassion
From the moment that we found ourselves drowning

All that you want is to criticize
Something for nothing
And all that I want is forgiveness one more time
I know that
All that we want is to feel inside
Some kind of comfort
With all that we’ve done
We can hide
We’ll be the best in the world
We’ll be the best in the world

Just stop enough of the venemous critical comments on my life
Just stop the judgment and all of your pseudo-involvement in my life

Several well-known musicians and bands openly ally themselves with the far Left (incidentally, where are the wingnut-Rightie bands? – and the “Bush Was Right” guys don’t count)… I propose that we take their lyrics and turn them inside out. Why not edit a bootleg video for a piece by Nine Inch Nails, or perhaps Disturbed, so that their bile and vitriol appears to be aimed at the murderers and religious nuts of the Middle East?

The material is there; the potential is there; all we need is to actually make it a reality. It’d be fun to yank their chains for once…

LYRICS SAMPLE #1: Nine Inch Nails, “The Hand That Feeds” – snark aimed at Christian Right, possibly reworked as warning to “moderate” Muslims

You’re keeping in step, in the line
Got your chin held high and you feel just fine
‘Cause you do what you’re told
But inside your heart it is black and it’s hollow and it’s cold

Just how deep do you believe?
Will you bite the hand that feeds?
Will you chew until it bleeds?
Can you get up off your knees?
Are you brave enough to see?
Do you wanna change it?

What if this whole crusade’s a charade
And behind it all there’s a price to be paid
For the blood on which we dine
Justified in the name of the holy and the divine

Just how deep do you believe?
Will you bite the hand that feeds?
Will you chew until it bleeds?
Can you get up off your knees?
Are you brave enough to see?
Do you wanna change it?

So naïve
I keep holding on to what I wanna believe
I can see
But I keep holding on and on and on and on

(Repeat x8)
Will you bite the hand that feeds you?
Will you stay down on your knees?

FUCK 1968.

(A song for the Republicans, who are now finding out exactly what the Democrats like about being in Congress… with apologies to Robert Palmer)

The roll is called, but you're not home
Your vote is not your own
Your heart sweats, your body shakes
Another bill is what it takes
You can't sleep, you can't eat
There's no doubt you're in deep
Your wallet's fat, awakes the greed
Another bill is all you need

Whoa, you like to think that you can put down the fork, oh yeah
Well honey, crack a barrel and pop another cork
You know you're gonna have to face it, you're addicted to pork

You see the signs, but you can't read
The Donkeys run at different speeds
The lobby speaks in double time
Another budget and they'll be mine
A one track mind
You can't be saved
Another term is all you crave
If there's some left for you
You don't mind if you do

Whoa, you like to think that you can put down the fork, oh yeah
Well honey, crack a barrel and pop another cork
You know you're gonna have to face it, you're addicted to pork

Might as well face it, you're addicted to pork
Might as well face it, you're addicted to pork
Might as well face it, you're addicted to pork
Might as well face it, you're addicted to pork

[Solo]

The roll is called, but you're not home
Your vote is not your own
Your heart sweats, your teeth grind
Another bill and you'll be mine
Whoa, you like to think that you can put down the fork, oh yeah
Well honey, crack a barrel and pop another cork
You know you're gonna have to face it, you're addicted to pork

Might as well face it, you're addicted to pork
Might as well face it, you're addicted to pork
Might as well face it, you're addicted to pork
Might as well face it, you're addicted to pork
Might as well face it, you're addicted to pork
Might as well face it, you're addicted to pork
Might as well face it, you're addicted to pork
Might as well face it, you're addicted to pork
