Frank Zappa Said it Best

People, we are dumb all over.  This the year of our Lord 2008 can be written down as the year that nobody ran for president of the USA . Look at the numbers.  The Dems are out drawing the big money GOP. Why is that you might ask? Well, stop and think for a moment. The GOP wunderkind in the form of George W. Bush has succeeded in bringing financial ruin to vast swaths on America while enriching 1 percent of our over fed and over paid. (The curious might also wonder why a bozo like GWB, who ran every business he ever touched straight into the ground was given free rein to do the same to our country) With golden parachutes worth millions for over extending and fraudulently pushing investors in the wrong direction; all legally done under the auspices of de-regulation brought about by Ronald Regan and his crew of neo-cons that still haunt us today. Little did we know early in the 80s what lay in store. What at first blush appeared to be just another administrations grand vision turned out to be much more… deregulate this bank, de-regulate that oil company and don’t forget the airlines and the power companies too..(think Enron) Corporations  have way more rights than all the rest of us just as corporate law has been skewed to favor the well moneyed elite while simultaneously rending all the juice from the turnip that is America with the blessings of our anointed power brokers in Washington DC.  Many of our esteemed civil serpents hold office just long enough to get the big money private sector jobs as K street lobbyists. So America it would seen that we are truly dumb all over. We keep sending these fuckin crooks back to the trough year after year. I think that the bard Frank Zappa says it best. Hope you enjoy it.

Whoever we are
Wherever were from
We shoulda noticed by now
Our behavior is dumb
And if our chances
Expect to improve
Its gonna take a lot more
Than tryin to remove
The other race
Or the other whatever
From the face
Of the planet altogether

They call it the earth
Which is a dumb kinda name
But they named it right
cause we behave the same…
We are dumb all over
Dumb all over,
Yes we are
Dumb all over,
Near n far
Dumb all over,
Black n white
People, we is not wrapped tight

Nurds on the left
Nurds on the right
Religous fanatics
On the air every night
Sayin the bible
Tells the story
Makes the details
Sound real gory
bout what to do
If the geeks over there
Dont believe in the book
We got over here

You cant run a race
Without no feet
n pretty soon
There wont be no street
For dummies to jog on
Or doggies to dog on
Religous fanatics
Can make it be all gone
(I mean it wont blow up
n disappear
Itll just look ugly
For a thousand years…)

You cant run a country
By a book of religion
Not by a heap
Or a lump or a smidgeon
Of foolish rules
Of ancient date
Designed to make
You all feel great
While you fold, spindle
And mutilate
Those unbelievers
From a neighboring state

To arms! to arms!
Hooray! thats great
Two legs aint bad
Unless theres a crate
They ship the parts
To mama in
For souvenirs: two ears (get down!)
Not his, not hers, (but what the hey? )
The good book says:
(it gotta be that way!)
But their book says:
Revenge the crusades…
With whips n chains
n hand grenades…
Two arms? two arms?
Have another and another
Our God says:
There aint no other!
Our God says
Its all okay!
Our God says
This is the way!

It says in the book:
Burn n destroy…
n repent, n redeem
n revenge, n deploy
n rumble thee forth
To the land of the unbelieving scum on the other side
cause they dont go for whats in the book
n that makes em bad
So verily we must choppeth them up
And stompeth them down
Or rent a nice french bomb
To poof them out of existance
While leaving their real estate just where we need it
To use again
For temples in which to praise our god
(cause he can really take care of business!)

And when his humble tv servant
With humble white hair
And humble glasses
And a nice brown suit
And maybe a blond wife who takes phone calls
Tells us our God says
Its okay to do this stuff
Then we gotta do it,
cause if we dont do it,
We aint gwine up to hebbin!
(depending on which book youre using at the
Time…cant use theirs… it dont work
…its all lies…gotta use mine…)
Aint that right?
Thats what they say
Every night…Every day…
Hey, we cant really be dumb
If were just following gods orders
Hey, lets get serious…
God knows what hes doin
He wrote this book here
An the book says:
He made us all to be just like him,
So…
If were dumb…
Then God is dumb…
(an maybe even a little ugly on the side)
