Obama surely isn't the first to use non-judicial killing - but it has never been done so openly. If this is allowed to stand - what does our children's future hold?

Adapted from the Gilbert and Sullivan Operetta - The Mikado (http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Mik...)

Lyrics:

As someday it may happen that a conflict we must start,
I've got a little list! I've got a little list!
Of America's detractors who might well be blown apart
and who'll certainly be miffed! They'll certainly be miffed!
There's the oil owning foreigners whose skin is rather brown.
I push a button then a drone will blow up half their town.
All victims who are blown up too - 'accomplices' we'll call.
No innocents - just terrorists - we'll classify them all.
But wait - the army's offensives to congress I must tell...
but not the CIA's - the drones will fit there swell!

If the Army flies the drones, then congress he must sway
so he'll hide the program deep - deep inside the CIA

There's the radical inciter, and the others of great faith,
and the Pro-Life activist - I've got him on the list!
The whistleblower Wikileaking into cyberspace.
He can't escape my fist - I've got him on the list.
The idiot who raises some objection to my plan
"The constitution guarantees due process" he'll demand
"without a trial or a judge to keep the rule of law
you cannot act as jury judge and executioner!"
I'm sad to say but, little man, your theory isn't true
due process is just this - a process that I do!

And now you're on the list! And now you're on the list!
'Cause the process that he does - that is what due process is!

And that noncompliant nuisance who is just a waste of space
the nosey journalist! I've got him on the list!
And the bitter people clinging to their guns and to their faith.
They never would be missed - our drones just do not miss.
Those who approve my killing move on foreigners alone
will see the state expatriate then hit them with a drone.
And in the end it doesn't matter what they think is true
the drones can kill you both abroad and in the homeland too.
For a nation who gives up their rights and has a monarchist
may well be on the list - you're all there on the list!

He has put us on the list! He has put us on the list!
For the tyranny we bought, will rule with an iron fist!

Aren't R3VOL the most creative bunch?

I posted this awhile back, but can't seem to locate it; RobHino also posted it, too, back then.

Apropos of Rand's recent EPIC Brennan-O'DroneMurder Filibuster, for those who may have never seen this parody, when it came out, behold: The Obamikado!

It's based on Gilbert & Sullivan's opera/musical, The Mikado:

You'll be humming its catchy chorusline for weeks!

My friend's children are so intelligent and knowledgeable! He's got some other great videos too he's been making with puppets!

Great content for the Grandpaul Facebook Page that his wife helps me manage, though we're not very active there. Who remembers how it started?!

AWESOME!

didn't know you guys knew each other!

How amazingly awesome is it that R3VOL parents raise the most awesomest of awesome kids, too!

I know they're simply singing what the parent wrote, but to sing it that well??

Was that ever on the front page here on DP?

I can think of nothing better or more apt than Obamikado, in light of Rand's EPIC filibuster.

Thanks for the links, Rob!

The kids came up with the concept...

The kids came up the concept and helped with some of the lyrics. They're extremely bright. The Rufus puppet show vids are improve I believe.

Yeah, it was featured on the front page.

WOW!

I'm stunned. Because to do a parody of a high geopolitical issue with impeccable rhythmic, rhyme-y, catchy, current-event commentary?

WOW.

And, it was suggested by the kids themselves? From the sound of their voices they seem all younger than 10!

I LOVE R3VOL! So loving the idea that, those are the kids who'll inherit the Earth, or at least be a steward to a small part of it.

Only if we had like 7 billion of them; they'll all still be equally special;o)

LOL: some R3VOL kids are trained to fight, VERY VERY WELL, since age 11! http://www.youtube.com/user/gixxerguy811/videos

In my ideal world, everyone in America would know how to run an AR or AK, Glock or M1911 and fight with it like Frank Proctor/Costa/Haley/Pincus/Howe/Lamb/Yeager et al, survive like James Wesley Rawles, Cody Lundin, Ron Hood, be as genteel and principled like Dr. Paul, learn to design, create and build like Syd Mead, and be entrepreneurial like Steve Jobs, and be brilliant philosophers like Bastiat.

Too much to ask? LOL

Well, at least on the manual of arms, fight mechanics side, they can start by watching some of these:

what

the F kind of world do we live in, when a non-sense zone out pop dance tune like Gangnam Style gets 1.5 BILLION+ views & the Harlem Shake is the (now Jumped the Shark) toast of the net, and a brilliant parody mini-musical like this gets less than 10,000 views???

yeah, yeah, rhetorical...but still@#$!!#$!
