"American Pie" - served in a jackboot.

The lovely weather must have kicked my ditty-writing neurons into high gear. Intended to be humorous, with a dash of truth.

Long, long time ago, I can still remember how the news here used to make me smile.
And I knew that I had my chance to tell the truth, give folks a chance
To look at facts without the media guile.
But moderation makes me shiver, arrows of truth left in the quiver.
Posts that I cannot see, just get a big 4-0-3.
I can't recall how many lies were dispelled here, opened my eyes,
Today, truth seeking dies.

So bye, bye putting the truth to the lie,
There's a thread I wish I'd read but now access is denied.
Some good ol' boys are laughing until they cry,
Singing "This is how a search for truth dies! This is how we hide all our lies."

Did you join a revolt of love, or do you have faith in Corp.gov
If the media tells you so...
Do you believe in the Bill of Rights
Can peace prevail without a fight
and can you tell me, where'd our freedom go?

Well I know truth is pretty grim,
Our shot at love is mighty slim,
But we must know what is true to loose these tyranny blues.
I'm just a granny keen on truth and love, trying to be lead from above
But I know we're all out of luck, the day truth seeking dies.

So bye, bye putting the truth to the lie,
There's a thread I wish I'd read but now access is denied.
Some good ol' boys are laughing until they cry,
Singing "This is how a search for truth dies! This is how we hide all our lies."

bump for Jon

even now that Nystrom is back, he is demanding I comply with his opinions before I may post again. Nystrom has not weighed in on the matter, but I have had all the toilet, I mean Jon, I can stomach.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Goodnight Jon.

Sleep well, m'lord.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

I like it, except it's not vague enough.

You need a verse that doesn't make any sense at all, like the entire original song basically. Something like:

Did you write the book of law,
Or spread a word outside the wall,
Plant it slow,
Watch it fast.

Oh, and why all the plane kept raining down,
Defenses formed upon the ground,

They printed out some shoes,
What isn't said is true - oohhh!!!

(guitar solo)

"Damn the pandas, full steam ahead"

-Admiral David Farragut

I met a girl who watched the news...

And she said the only thing that's true, is,
Catholic, Protestant or Jew,
We're all, the same,
Inside.

And we were singing
'Why why must our sons go and die,
Drive their humvee down the river
Till the river won't cry.
The good old girls will hang their sheets to the sky,
Saying this will be the day that I dry!
This will be the day that I dry.

"Damn the pandas, full steam ahead"

-Admiral David Farragut

A million men in lounge chair march,

The laundry maiden added starch,
And pythons laughed behind their larch,
The day,
The camera cried.

And we was singing...

"Damn the pandas, full steam ahead"

-Admiral David Farragut

I'm gonna start a band, and I'm gonna call it 'Meat Sandwich',

and I'm gonna get someone who can sing, and I'm gonna have them sing this song. .........

"Damn the pandas, full steam ahead"

-Admiral David Farragut

Someone overslept or was at the donut shop with the other cops

It took them a while to remove that scary post about blood. I feel safer now that they removed it.

Are You Referring To

the post earlier with the "fake blood" video? I noticed that too. Dare I say so or shall I be banned from DP?

skippy

Yes, that's the one.

It was up for quite a while. Someone must be slacking.

A second heapin' helpin' - thanks!

I love the taste of petty tyranny in the morning.
Here's to those who have declared "Boston" a taboo topic:

Not bad...and well said.

I value truth seeking and sites where truth seeking is allowed, which is why I have always loved The Daily Paul.

I have not kept up with recent shifts in moderation, so I cannot say whether they, in fact, have impeded truth seeking as you claim.

If the owner no longer values truth seeking, and desires that his forum be used primarily for some other purpose, then that is his choice. Such a choice would significantly diminish its utility for me (and probably others), but if it increases its utility for him, there's not much any of us can do about it other than lament the change.

I'm a big fan of parodies and have composed a few myself. For example:

http://americathebushieful.blogspot.com/

That is so nice.

I've not read all 58, but this one caught my eye-
twenty-third verse:
O Bushieful for "New Freedom,"
It's new but it's not free!
Your children's psyches shrinks will plumb
Then force-drug liberally!
America! America!
Big Pharma seeks control!
Vexed by free will, they've got a pill...
It just costs you your soul!

LOL! Oh, wait, that ain't funny...

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.
