The Pink Floyd Generation for Ron Paul!

Yeah, I was 16 in 1973 when the Dark Side of the Moon came out so I would consider myself one of the PF gens.


We all had it so "made" then that we left it up to the "politicians" to "handle" it for us. We/I slept.

Well, the oil embargo of 1973 should have been our first clue that something was amiss. Nixon removing us from the gold standard was something that we "trusted" would be OK. Being 16, what did I know?

Jimmy Carter promised a "new day" in America as he walked up Pennsylvania avenue in January, 1977.

Our BIG mistake was to believe!

The left/right paradigm did jimbo in and our own ineptitude did us ALL in. From the Iranian embassy "crisis" to the wrecked helicopter plot to resue them, we failed miserably as a country as we continued to trust GHWB (the elder bush nazi) to lead us "home".

Cocaine and disco flooded our streets.

We voted in Reagan. Candidly, all I thought about (at 23 years old) was that Reagan's name, Ronald Wilson Reagan, had 6 letters in each name! I wondered...was he the antichrist?

After 100 days and one assassination attempt later, thanks to GHWB (the assassination king) more CFR reps were placed into our "government" than EVER before in our history.

The rest of our history is like a fastforward to today...its all a blur the way we, the people have been duped, lied to, and manipulated to further the neocon nazis in BOTH parties. In 30 years of bush/clinton/bush/obama we (The PFgens) have now been placed on this doorstep of history.

Remember the track off that album, Time?

Well, the alarm clock is going off for us now. Its time to wake up!

I've got a 6' x 12' Ron Paul banner in front of my house on a road that sees 1 million tourists a year!

I'll hand out Super Brochures every day until my 1000 are gone and then I'll buy more.

My alarm clock is going off. I hope yours is, too.

Dogs (Waters, Gilmour) 17:06

You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need.
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street,
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed.
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight,
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking.

And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.
You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.

You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder.
You know it's going to get harder, and harder, and harder as you
get older.
And in the end you'll pack up and fly down south,
Hide your head in the sand,
Just another sad old man,
All alone and dying of cancer.

And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest you have sown.
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone.
And it's too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw
So have a good drown, as you go down, all alone,
Dragged down by the stone.

I gotta admit that I'm a little bit confused.
Sometimes it seems to me as if I'm just being used.
Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off this creeping malaise.
If I don't stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this

Deaf, dumb, and blind, you just keep on pretending
That everyone's expendable and no-one has a real friend.
And it seems to you the thing to do would be to isolate the winner
And everything's done under the sun,
And you believe at heart, everyone's a killer.

Who was born in a house full of pain.
Who was trained not to spit in the fan.
Who was told what to do by the man.
Who was broken by trained personnel.
Who was fitted with collar and chain.
Who was given a pat on the back.
Who was breaking away from the pack.
Who was only a stranger at home.
Who was ground down in the end.
Who was found dead on the phone.
Who was dragged down by the stone.

Was at the WALL Concert

In austin 2 weeks ago. When Roger started the concert with

"There is no justice, a young man in Bristol ( I think ) a few months ago was apprehended by multiple officers in public, was beaten on the ground and shot 7 times. Nothing has been done about it and nothing will. What has happened and what are we?"

I screemed at the TOP of my lungs "We are Living in a POLICE STATE ROGER". He looked up in my direction and put his hands up.

The stupid idiot chick in front of me got all pissed. I know I was clearly heard by alot of "dead brained" people...

They simply do not understand the album "The Wall" and never will. Sad, very Sad.

Thanks ecorob....

You just gave me inspiration for a new video.

pink floyd's 3 4

really gets me thinking

And who is the master of fox hounds?
And who says the hunt has begun?
And who calls the tune in the courtroom?
And who beats the funeral drum?

The memories of a man in his old age
Are the deeds of a man in his prime.
You shuffle in gloom in the sickroom
And talk to yourself till you die.



If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Rand Paul Quoted Pink Floyd in a Speech Monday

Wish You Were Here: "Have we traded our heroes for ghosts?..And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?"

And credits Waters with the quote

Start video speech at 4:20 for the quote.


Hello, hello, hello. Is there anybody out there?

Thanks for bringing the speech to my attention.

Pink Floyd was my first concert

in Chicago. Loaded up my red Karman Ghia, and got there and back safe and sound(which was amazing in and of itself!)
I remember trying to 'shush' everyone when the song meddle was starting.
Wow, those were the days!

Yes, we always remember our first loves...

L.I. does have its perks, huh? - not only the beach, but proximity to the city. I love the t-shirt: "I might be old, but I saw all the great bands" - not that I'm that old! Haven't lived on L.I. in years but still consider it home, so I'm always happy to see my "kin" represented here. Did you see this inspiring post? Between the Ron Paul signs and song, I couldn't stop smiling. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WY_ipbZgDr8een P.S. Love those red sports cars! Around the same time as your concert I was seeing someone with a red Pininfarina, not that that had anything to do with the attraction, of course. :)

"Mother" says it well... even

"Mother" says it well... even how I feel posting on here sometimes :)

Mother do you think they'll drop the bomb?
Mother do you think they'll like this song?
Mother do you think they'll try to break my balls?
Mother should I build the wall?
Mother should I run for president?
Mother should I trust the government?
Mother will they put me in the firing line?
Mother am I really dying?

And Wish You Were Here, to me at least, seems to be about trading FREEDOM for SECURITY (Not just about Syd)

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Love Pink Floyd! Same Generation (Boomer)...

and don't forget The Who:

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

We won't get fooled again (well at least WE DPers won't; can't say the same for the rest).

I was too young

...to be in the Pink Floyd generation. I was 3 when Dark Side of the Moon came out. It's funny you should mention them, though ... because more than once I've been reminded of their music while thinking about Ron Paul.

Whenever Ron Paul speaks of stopping the wars, I'm always reminded of "Bring the Boys Back Home".

When I first stumbled across Dr. Paul on the internet in 2003, Roger Waters "The Tide is Turning" was on my mind because without the technology of the internet he would still be a mystery to me.

Don't Forget Jordan Page!

Awesome acoustic version of The Wall. Best experienced live, but this youtube does a pretty good job. Enjoy!

One day, I'm gonna' change my name to Dale Lee Paul

I turned 15 two days before this album came out

and it wasn't until I was 30 that it finally dropped off Billboard's Top 100. An incredible record in more ways than one.

LOL Must be groupthink or something

I literally just posted The Tide is Turning from Radio Kaos.

I've posted Amused to Death here previously and noted that Roger Waters MUST be a Ron Paul supporter.

One day, I'm gonna' change my name to Dale Lee Paul

Amused to Death is definitely

Amused to Death is definitely my favorite Roger Waters solo album. It had the same feel as the final cut for me. Great anti-war album. I often find "Perfect Sense" playing in my head.

It would be awesome to get Roger on our side... I remember on his tour in 08 or so, he had "Habeas Corpus still matters" written on the side of the floating pig.

And Everything Under The Sun Is In Tune

But the sun is eclipsed by the moon............................there is no dark side of the moon really, as a matter of fact, it's all dark.



You can't get clean in a dirty bathtub.

I expected no less ...

I expected no less from a man who has a quote from Max Webster in his sig line.

+1 for good hearing
"I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us...very hard to explain why you're mad, even if you're not mad..."

How Bout' Some Love For 'The Wall'?!?

Ron breaks down all barriers with his message of Freedom, Prosperity, and Peace.

Tonight Ron was on 'Trial' and he came through beautifully!


"Liberty's too precious a thing to be buried in books...Men should hold it up in front of them every single day of their lives and say: 'I'm free to think and to speak. My ancestors couldn't. I can. And my children will."

Over 50....definitely


Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

no no no y'all.....

it's all in Meddle.

and Saucer Full of Secrets

and Ummagumma.

that $hit is THE $hit.
nothing higher.

Don't forget

Atom Heart Mother and Animals.

They're all good really. Right up to The Final Cut. But I'm with you, I like the earlier stuff better.

Oh yeah, "Atom Heart Mother"

Oh yeah, "Atom Heart Mother" is amazing too.
