From Ignoreland: “They are wrecking all things virtuous and true, and TV tells a million lies. The paper’s terrified to report.” It sounds like Stipe is talking about the Mainstream Media and New York Times today.
REM members Berry, Buck, Mills and Lead Singer Stipe wrote. “Ignoreland” a rambling, nonsensical protest song against Conservative Politics of Reagan and Bush I. The song could be applied to the Obama Administration just as easily today.
These bastards stole their power from the victims of the Us v. Them years, Wrecking all things virtuous and true The undermining social democratic downhill slide into abysmal
These first few lines could have been written by Hillary Clinton 2008. She doing so well in the autumn of 2007 when she was leading by a wide margin, all other Democratic candidates in national polls. But by March of 2008, Obama was undermining Hillary’s vision of social democracy. Obama was wrecking all things virtuous and true like Hillary’s presidency being sent into an abyss.
They hypnotised the summer, 1979 Marched into the capital brooding duplicitous, wicked and able, media-ready, Heartless, and labeled. Super US citizen, super achiever, Mega ultra power doesn’t relax.
Americans were hypnotized again in the summer of 2008 when Obama was labeled a media ready, Super US citizen, a super achiever. He never relaxed, even plays basketball and golf all the time.
Anything that isn’t handed on a presidential spoon, I’m just profoundly frustrated by all this.
Many are profoundly frustrated about spying, lying, Obamacare and the spoon many in the media hand him.
If they wasn’t there we would have created them. Maybe, it’s true, But I’m resentful all the same. Someone’s got to take the blame I know that this is vitriol. No solution, spleen venting, But I feel better having screamed. Don’t you?
Best ‘anger management’ practice says …just scream, you’ll feel better even in 2014. Resentful all the same, trapped in circumstance they they were promised would not happen. “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” Was nothing short of an outright lie. I need to scream again. Don’t you?
