Miss American Empire

with 4 comments

I have put together a version of American Pie.  My suggestion is to play the original and read the new words to it.  This is hopefully temporary until some one with actual musical talent can give us a recorded version.

PLAY THIS

READ THIS (some one record it please)

Miss American Empire

A long, long time ago…
I can still remember
How my country used to make me smile.
And they knew if they had their chance
They could make those people dance
And, maybe, they’d be sleepy for a while.

But September made me shiver
With the more paper they deliver.
Bad news on Wall Street;
I couldn’t take one more peep.

I can’t remember if I knew
When I read about their little brew,
But something touched me deep inside
The day the dollar died.

So, “bye-bye, Miss American Empire.”
Drove the nation to the station,
Now the station is dry.
Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singin’, “this will be the day the dollar dies.”
“This’ll be the day that it dies.”

Did they write the book of law,
And do you have faith in those above,
If the pundits tells you so?
Do you believe in silver n’ gold,
Can credit save our financial soul,
And can you teach me how to buy real gold?

Well, I know that we’re in love with it
But the dollars gonna sink.
The feds kicked of its off its shoes.
Man, I digg those phony interviews.

I was a lonely spammin’ freedom fighter
With a Macintosh not old type writer,
But I knew I was getting righter
The day the dollar died.

We started singing,
“bye-bye, Miss American Empire.”
Drove the nation to the station,
Now the station is dry.
Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singin’, “this will be the day the dollar dies.”
“This’ll be the day that it dies.”

Now for 30 years we’ve been off of gold
And the doctor picked up the ringin’ phone,
But that’s not how it had to be.
When the profit preached to you and me,
In a suit he borrowed from Jackie
And a voice that spoke with hope and change,

Oh, and while the people were feeling down,
The decider stole the thorny crown.
Congress was adjourned;
No vote was returned.
And while I read a book on choice,
The quartet spoke with one big voice,
The taxpayer had know other choice
The day the dollar died.

We started singing,
“bye-bye, Miss American Empire.”
Drove the nation to the station,
Now the station is dry.
Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singin’, “this will be the day the dollar dies.”
“This’ll be the day that it dies.”

Helter skelter in a summer swelter.
The crooks flew off with a fallout shelter,
11,000 high and falling fast.
It landed foul on the mass.
The economy tried for a forward grasp,
With the truth on the sidelines in a mask.

In the cities there was certain doom
While the politicians spun our marching tune.
We all got up to dance,
And it might be our last chance!
`cause the players tried to take control;
And the liberty bell refused to toll
Do you recall what was revealed
The day the dollar died?

We started singing,
“bye-bye, Miss American Empire.”
Drove the nation to the station,
Now the station is dry.
Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singin’, “this will be the day the dollar dies.”
“This’ll be the day that it dies.”

Oh, and there we were we won’t forget,
A generation lost in debt
Its now time to start again
So come on: jack be nimble, jack be quick!
Freedom waive that victory stick
Cause our will is the devil’s only friend.

Yeah I heard about him in a cage
But that does not change who’s on the stage
And no amount of hope and change
Can reverse what they’ve arranged
And as liberties faded into the night
It lit up the dogs inner fight,
Jefferson was laughing with delight
The day the dollar died

We started singing,
“bye-bye, Miss American Empire.”
Drove the nation to the station,
Now the station is dry.
Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singin’, “this will be the day the dollar dies.”
“This’ll be the day that it dies.”

I met a man who sang the blues
And I asked him for the real news,
But he just smiled and showed the way.
And I went on to that Internet
To hear the news that I could not get
And the man there said there’s to much debt

And in the streets: the masses scream,
We began to listened, and began to dream.
The doctor’s words were now spoken;
The church bells were not all were broken.
And the man I admire most:
The doctor, Ron, deserves a toast,
Let’s show the world we are not just posts
The day the dollar died.

We started singing,
“bye-bye, Miss American Empire.”
Drove the nation to the station,
Now the station is dry.
Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singin’, “this will be the day the dollar dies.”
“This’ll be the day that it dies.”

We started singing,
“bye-bye, Miss American Empire.”
Drove the nation to the station,
Now the station is dry.
Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singin’, “this will be the day the dollar dies.”
“This’ll be the day that it dies.”

  2. THE SECOND AMERICAN REVOLUTION IS ON THE HORIZON

    The words “No Taxation without Representation” began as a slogan in the period 1763-1776 just before the first American Revolution. The slogan summarized the primary grievance of the American colonists in the Thirteen Colonies who believed the lack of representation in the British Parliament was an illegal denial of their rights as English citizens. The colonists believed that the laws excessively taxing them for services they did not receive were illegal.

    It has become apparent to most Americans that both houses of our Congress, just like the British Parliament of the 1760’s and 1770’s, no longer represents the interests of the American people. Our congress routinely passes legislation that benefits a wide variety of special interest groups at the expense of the average American citizen and taxpayer. Through the use of special interest bribes (I mean campaign contributions), it can now be said that America has the best congress that money can buy.

    American taxpayers are seeing their taxes go up at every level of government, oftentimes for services and programs that they do not benefit from, nor approve of. Our local and school taxes are rising at a rate far exceeding any increases in our incomes. The U.S. congress and the Federal Reserve are printing fiat money (backed by nothing) as fast as the printing presses can print it and the American taxpayers are starting to get angry about the increasing burden of taxation placed upon them and they have every right to be angry.

    The American taxpayers who live up to their responsibilities and who work hard (often holding two jobs) to pay their bills with less take-home money are:

    1. paying for ongoing failed social engineering experiments in housing and education,
    2. paying for the funding of anti-American, socialist organizations like LaRaza and ACORN,
    3. paying for a variety of services provided to 15 million +/- illegal aliens,
    4. paying for the bailout of large international banks,
    5. paying for the bailout of Wall Street firms,
    6. paying for the bailout of real estate investors and
    7. paying for the bailout of people who are unable or unwilling to be responsible adults and who fail to pay their own bills, including their mortgages.

    Many American citizens, particularly those who pay taxes, are frustrated by a government that no longer represents them, but rather represents the interests of an oligarchy of about one thousand political and financial elites who exert unconstitutional and illegal control over our government and economy for their personal gain.

    The members of this oligarchy are not loyal Americans who have the best interests of the county in mind, but rather they are people who benefit financially or politically by keeping our country in a constant state of war, by dumbing down our education system, by devaluating our currency, by separating us into categories by race and ethnic origin, by drugging 6 million of children with mind altering drugs, by flooding our country with illegal aliens, and by chipping away at our nation’s sovereignty, freedoms and liberties.

    I believe that Americans are fast approaching a point of frustration and anger with their own government similar to what the American colonists reached in 1776. They want to take their country and government back from the corrupt political and financial elites who control it. Let’s hope that the second American Revolution that we see on the horizon, is accomplished via the ballot box.

  3. Bailout 2008 by David Jeffrey

    Like a bloodied warrior,
    laying broken and torn.

    Like a dying soldier, hopeless and forlorn.

    But the blood, it be green,
    the color of money.

    And the soldier is an economy,
    and it is anything but funny.

    Broken are it’s people and shattered are their dreams.

    Thanks to the ultra rich and their full proof schemes.

    It is a tragedy with more pain to come.

    Finance will be Hell, and their wills will be done.
