“Outrage!” shouts one friend. “Amazing!” shouts another. Nope. Just the Business of selling us the President as usual.

Lives In The Balance

Youtube Listening Link

I’ve been waiting for something to happen
For a week or a month or a year
With the blood in the ink of the headline
and the sound of the crowd in my ear
You might ask what it takes to remember
When you know that you’ve seen it before
Where a government lies to her people
And a country is drifting to war

And there’s a shadow on the faces
Of the men who send the guns
To the wars that are fought in places
Where their business interests run

On the radio talk shows and the T.V.
You hear one thing again and again
How the U.S.A. stands for freedom
And we come to the aid of a friend
But who are the ones that we call our friends–
These governments killing their own?
Or the people who finally can’t take any more
And they pick up a gun or a brick or a stone
And there are lives in the balance
There are people under fire
There are children at the cannons
And there is blood on the wire

There’s a shadow on the faces
Of the men who fan the flames
Of the wars that are fought in places
Where we can’t even say their names

They sell us the President the same way
They sell us our clothes and our cars
They sell us everything from youth to religion
The same time they sell us our wars
I want to know who the men in the shadows are
I want to hear somebody asking them why
They can be counted on to tell us who our enemies are
But they’re never the ones to fight or to die
And there are lives in the balance
There are people under fire
There are children at the cannons
And there is blood on the wire

Seriously People?  We’ve already seen MSNBC and CNN “sales pitch”. Those of you reclining on comfy couches really expected something else then a repeat of former Elections? Look at the numbers and see who is being “sold” to us for 2012.

An Executive Order Governor who backtracks better than a bloodhound and a “Helmet Hair – Romney Care do what your told ’cause I know what you need” elitist. Welcome to the new political scene same as the old political scene.
