Ball of Confusion February 11, 2016

Political Rant 2: I don’t know anything about politics. Now, I know why. I was coerced into watching this debate going on as I write this. Neither of these people is saying anything. But there is a history of that. Now, just read the decades old words below and you’ll see it’ Deja Vu all over again.

” Eve of destruction, tax deduction, city inspectors, bill collectors
Mod clothes in demand, population out of hand, suicide, too many bills
Hippies moving to the hills, people all over the world are shouting, end the war

And the band played on

Great googa-looga, can’t you hear me talking to you
Sayin’ ball of confusion”

That’s what the world is today, hey, hey”- Norman Whitfield & Barret Strong,

Yep ,it’s the same old song with a different meaning…….” Holland Dozier Holland

Rockets, moon shots
Spend it on the have nots
Money, we make it
Fore we see it you take it
Oh, make you wanna holler
“The way they do my life
Make me wanna holler
The way they do my life
This ain’t livin’, this ain’t livin’
No, no baby, this ain’t livin’
No, no, no
Inflation no chance
To increase finance
Bills pile up sky high
Send that boy off to die
Make me wanna holler
The way they do my life
Make me wanna holler
The way they do my life
Dah, dah, dah
Dah, dah, dah
Hang ups, let downs
Bad breaks, set backs
Natural fact is
I can’t pay my taxes
Oh, make me wanna holler
And throw up both my hands”  – Marvin Gaye

 

“Yes, as through this world I’ve wandered
I’ve seen lots of funny men;
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.

And as through your life you travel,
Yes, as through your life you roam,
You won’t never see an outlaw
Drive a family from their home.” – Woody Guthrie

 So to all you  debaters and politicians – Rap on brothers rap on it’s what you’re good  at

 

* *Yes I know Hillary is a chick.
