New Parody-* Statist Community*- For (Washington DC) on Renewal of the Patriot ActSubmitted by Libera_me on Wed, 02/16/2011 - 13:56
I was so ticked off at my Congress critters concerning the Patriot Act renewal that steam threatened to come out of my head. My children requested a movie, (Veggietales) which had a silly song called 'Gated Community', which we all find funny. As often happens when I am furious and can do nothing constructive about it...I sat down to write. This parody is what came of it:
The Statist Community
There once was a man, who went to the House
And the House off in in DC
And good folks sent him there, from a land far and wide,
To the statist community....
Oh, the statist community is where we want to be
The right side and the left side both want big government,see?
and when you come to visit, you can come inside and be
just another subject of empire building tyranny!
Do you hear Ron Paul, Can you hear Ron Paul,
We sent him into DC. And Ron Paul went up, And Ron Paul went in, to the statist community. (Chorus)
Oh, the statist community is where we like to be,
Our discussions are just cover for your sale as sureties
And when you come to visit you can come inside and see
What a simple thing it is to destroy your liberties
The statist community is where we like to be
Our lives have been made simple by a fiat currency
And when you come to visit, you can come inside and see,
How you too became a slave to the banksters, Yes Indeed!
Oh the statist community, I think we all agree,
Has been made more simple promising security. (your security...)
Insert 4 part harmonies here)
Oh the statist community, We'll promise you security in
trade for liberties, and when you come to visit, you can come inside and see, what a thoughtful bunch we are...
best security by far, traveling by plane, or car...in the statist community!
