I am not going to write a full post about Obamacare and the resulting government shutdown. I will in due time. Right now, I am still fuming from everything happening at the hands of greedy, selfish maniacal nutjobs (ie. Tea Party GOPs). I don't blame President Obama. I blame individuals like Senator Ted Cruz (TX) and Michele Bachmann (former Minnesota Representative) for their lies and batshit crazy ways. By the way, Bachmann is running for Congress. CONGRESS!!! I wouldn't want people like that managing the Papa Johns or McDonalds down the street let alone acting as leaders within the US government. And they are 'acting'. Can you feel my smoking anger? That's why I'm saving my energies so I don't punch a hole through the wall. If I start writing about it now, I may end up throwing my computer out the window. I'm not kidding. I only hope that people wake up and realize the Republican party has been hijacked by a bunch of sadistic demonic individuals who care nothing about you and me. I have nothing against Republicans or Conservatives. What I don't like is people claiming to be leaders and proponents of 'American' values who are nothing of the sort. I'm done.
With that being said, here's a mix to set your toes to tapping and lift your heart alight. I picked 17 songs because it is by October 17 that the 16.7 billion dollar debt must be raised to avoid a meltdown within our economy. The music is a total reflection of the stuff I listened to at 16-18. Lots of grunge and punk. I will write PARENTAL ADVISORY here so that folks reading this know that the following songs have graphic language. I figure why censor my true feelings, right? This list of songs reflects how I feel about the resistance against nationalizing health care and shutting down the government.
So through song, I am showing you what at this time I cannot express in words. So if you are offended by graphic and violent language, then perhaps you should close this window now and read another post of mine. And if you're saying 'how dare you?', well it's my fucking blog. If you take the songs I selected at face value and just think 'they all sound the same; it's just punk-metal anger music'. Well you're wrong. My mixes are selected very carefully and I think that each song tells a story. And for the record, if you think I'm the one being grotesque, it just means you don't understand metaphor and figurative ideas. For that matter, maybe you shouldn't be reading my blog at all. See, I told you, I have a lot of pent up aggression from this whole mess in Washington.
So without any more stalling, here it is. 17 songs of anger, frustration, and disgust.
1) Washington DC by The Magnetic Fields
2) Take This Job and Shove It by The Dead Kennedys
*I'm sure everyone got my reference above to the woman who tried to ram her car through the White House barricades and got herself killed. I don't think it's funny at all. I am however trying to make a statement that shit has gotten so crazy that upon waking up, you just don't know what to expect anymore. Today on Capitol Hill, a man set himself on fire. Yes, truly! What will tomorrow bring? Perhaps it will rain cats and dogs or pigs will fly to outer space. It's a mad, strange world.
Man on fire
*If you like Michele Bachmann, watch this clip and then think about how you feel about her:
Batshit crazy Bachmann
And for something completely unrelated but hillarious, check out this prank called 'Skeleton Drive-Thru Prank'. It's brilliant!:
