These Comments About Politicians Are Too Mean To Be True. But They ARE True.

This really reminds me of when atypical activists like Bob Dylan and Marvin Gaye would write something wonderful in protest of the times they lived in.

Share this if you agree with him — or disagree. Or, you can share it if you just like the song like I do.

The lyrics:


Pushing poison to our children
Still promoting class division
We are starving, but you are fat
Don't know why they do us like that


Politicians, you better get right
These conditions ain't no good for life
Whose decision is it anyway, yours or mine?

Making promises you can't keep
Hungry wolves dressed like sheep
Shake our hands, stab our backs
Don't know why they do us like that


Politicians, you better get right
These conditions ain't no good for life
Whose decision is it anyway, yours or mine?

Free country’s not so free
Ain't no hope for you and me
From the power-hungry money fiends
Ruling the world behind the scenes


Politicians, you better get right
These conditions ain't no good for life
Whose decision is it anyway, yours or mine?

Oh beautiful for spacious sky
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountain's majesty
Above the fruited plain


America, America,
God shed his grace on thee
And crowned thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.

"That review has begun in earnest," it said. "As part of this process, we want to keep our sponsors, fans and community apprised of our thinking as we go forward."
