I heard this on the radio this morning. It is such a great song by a fantastic group.
What if the Tea Party was black?
I remember hearing on the news that black South Africans stood in line for days and traveled for days just so that they could vote for the very first time. Apartheid was cruel. The Dutch and the English really had no right to take South Africa away from its indigenous people.
This is a very old song. We should not forget the suffering that Apartheid created. The black South Africans were so grateful to finally vote. Here in America, less than 50% of the eligible population votes. In 2009, there was less than a 25% turn out. Shame on all the Americans that stayed home. We should never take our right to vote for granted.
Pandora shut the box in time. I still have hope and faith in our President. The alternative to Barack Obama is not acceptable and would be dangerous to our health, wealth and safety.
Democracy Is Coming To The USA. Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and the rest of the GOPers need to come back to reality. Barack Obama is our democratically elected President.

Steve Earle is a fantastic singer/songwriter and this song is dedicated to all those wild and crazy teabaggers that have their knickers in a knot about immigrants.
That’s right folks… all of us are immigrants except for the Native Americans.
We were such a hairy bunch then.
Joe Cocker With a Little Help From My Friends. This is probably the best version of this song.

Brought to you by the generation that marched to end a war, worked for a cleaner and healthier environment and gave us the first Earth Day and women’s liberation and marched and fought for equality and civil rights for everyone. Health care wasn’t a big issue then because doctors spent time with their patients and didn’t get involved with insurance companies telling them how to do their job. This was before Nixon invented HMO’s which was the beginning of the end of quality health care.
Looking around now and it seems like very little has changed. The country is still divided just like it was back then.
In honor of Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Rush Limbaugh
True story… the performers’ goal is to have 1 millions views. Feel free to pass it along.
