New Parody-* Statist Community*- For (Washington DC) on Renewal of the Patriot Act

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 was out 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

(Chorus)
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!

I totally missed this thread in February!

With the Gated Community youtube tune in the background I hummed along this funny parody, Statist Community, and loved it, Libera_me!

I sort of wish that those statist house members can be locked up in a gated community, never to sneak out to impose any lousy laws and regulations upon us :-)

Wouldn't it be great if Private Manning ballad can live for many centuries, like the Humpty Dumpty parody song, to pin down what's exactly wrong at this moment of American history?!?

May the spirit of muse strike you. . . for fun and justice, Libera_me!

Fun song!

It would make a swell video - told as if reading to a toddler - with simple cartoon drawings.

Thank you, *breaking news*....

There are two preschoolers I know who would love to do it ;) We now have the names of the members of the official Octet singing the Statist Community

D- Hillary Clinton (alternate) R- Michelle Bachmann
D- Barbara Boxer R- Elena Ros Lehtinen
D- Nancy Pelosi R- Olympia Snowe
(alternate)
D- Harry Reid R- Lindsey Graham
D- Barry Soetoro R- Allen West

The Octet has no determined name yet, we would appreciate votes on the following suggestions: (Their motto will be, "We plead the 5th but not the 4th.")

Capitol Crimes

Capitol Lies

Capitol Merger

Amazing the creative force coming about lately

:) Must be something in the air!

Thanks for this - it brought back great memories with my kids.

They just came in from school(12,14,17) and my first question to them was "What kind of vegetable was Larry, celery or broccoli?" and my kids were like "Ummm, Mommmm, he's a cu-cum-berrrr!!" and then they saw I was on my usual DP and kind of backed away going "ooooookay" ;) Guess you'd of had to been here. :)
