Yeah, Thanks Mike

A verse for the new century. Still, my soul is with John Lennon on top of Mt. Royal in Montreal
(site for famous anti-war protest around 1970)

A Working Class Speedball

In a world strung out on terror and greed
Jonesing for success in excess all succeed
Fix me up with coffee, tobacco and weed
A working class speedball is all that i need
A working class speedball is all that i need

The world only imagines things to be bought
By souls sold into slavery for a recycled plot
I free myself buying coffee, tobacco and pot
A working class speedball is all that i need
A working class speedball is all that i need

All you need is love but they want to see the cash
But why bust your nut shagging after flashy trash
When you can drink coffee, smoke tobacco and some hash
A working class speedball is all that you need
A working class speedball is all that you need

If the world is a hemorrhoid, a pain in the ass
Then, like other things, its days too must pass
Until then, i'll take coffee, tobacco and grass
A working class speedball is all that i need
A working class speedball is all that i need

Falling out of bed and into the abyss
I heard this whispered by a whiskered walrus:
Drink coffee, smoke tobacco and canna-bissss
A working class speedball is all that you need
A working class speedball is all that you need

If you want to be a hero, then don't follow me
If you want to be a hero, well don't follow me

A Working Class Hero

As soon as you're born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
A working class hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
Till you're so ****ing crazy you can't follow their rules
A working class hero is something to be

When they've tortured and scared you for twenty-odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can't really function you're so full of fear
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
But you're still ****ing peasants as far as I can see
A working class hero is something to be

There's room at the top they're telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill

A working class hero is something to be
If you want to be a hero well just follow me

State Of The Union

The 6 Wal-Mart heirs are worth more than 48% of the American people. It's time for the minimum wage to be raised to AT LEAST $10 and more like $15! Obama should roll out some good ideas tomorrow night. What a JOKE to believe that everybody in this country has an equal chance for upward mobility.

The Republicans have uttered nothing, no words of worth or value for years. Just crap like Tradle of Florida (R) resigning for buying crack in a Fed sting.

Immigration
Global Warming
Infrastructure

What do the Repubs want? Repeal of the estate tax so we all can become bloody peasants again!

Where is your awareness?

The World:
Sochi Winter Olympics: Likeliness of terrorism
Kiev, Ukraine: Weeks of protests turned violent. President wants to side with Russia
South Sudan: Hundreds of thousands killed based now on tribe instead of politics.
Syria: Stalemate in the war with no end in sight. No unification of the rebels means deadlock. Syrian refugees destabilizing the entire region.
Iran eases up on nuclear issue to talk

The US:
NSA rolls on with minors adjustments, no clemency for Snowden
Chris Christy does a belly flop in the Jersey mud.
Washington & Colorado: Smokem' while practicing with your AK-47
No extension on unemployment

I probably missed a lot of stuff, not paying much attention these days...

@MikeE

I would definitely say that I am glibly optimistic w/o much evidence...
