U.S. STEAL
[ a song, rock ]


                            They call me U.S. Steal
                            Twenty-first century fox sound bite
                            Who gives a damn what’s true or false
                            Long as it leans to the right?
                            Add a token liberal, pretend I’m fair
                            A bimbo for some sex appeal
                            I'm busy oilin’ up the corporation wheel
                            And they call me U.S. Steal, U.S. Steal

                            They call me U.S Steal
                            Carnegie sins, fifth generation
                            Incite illegal war, ignore the poor
                            Forget health and education
                            Promise not to leave any child behind
                            Fresh air, green tree or baby seal
                            Gonna drill Alaska a new raw deal
                            And they call me U.S. Steal

                                  They call me U.S. Steal
                                  Rockefeller/Ford assembly line
                                  Gonna’ bust the workin’ people’s unions up
                                  Put 'em back on eighteen-hour time
                                  Privatize hard-earned retirement funds
                                  Guess what happens when the markets reel
                                  Multi-trillion dollar debt I’ll soon reveal
                                  They call me U.S. Steal, U.S. Steal

                            Well, they call me U.S. Steal
                            Bush hackin' wackin' war machine
                            My sham patriotic war drum beat
                            Keeps profiteer's pockets full of green
                            Drink pollution’s cup ‘till the well runs dry
                            Bankrupt Uncle Sam with my tax repeal
                            I just may be human history’s biggest heel
                            Yeah, they call me U.S. Steal

                                  They call me U.S. Steal
                                  That’s S - T - E - A - L
                                  I steal from children, widows and the poor
                                  I steal from the middle class as well
                                  Human and Civil Rights will disappear
                                  World War III will soon be very real
                                  Hey, I’m carryin’ the presidential seal
                                  They call me U.S. Steal, U.S. Steal
                                  U.S. Steal, U.S. Steal, U.S. Steal * **

The i. e. America Radio Network      The Hightower Lowdown


DEDICATED TO:  Radio commentator and Washington D.C.'s number one pain in the backside Jim Hightower, author of Thieves in High Places: They've Stolen Our Country and It's Time To Take It Back, who helps us everyday Americans get the lowdown on how badly We The People are being screwed on any (actually every) given day.  Also dedicated to American common people's champion Will Rogers, who would most assuredly never run out of fractious fodder regarding today's gilded crop of corporation-whored political pork-devouring people's pocket picking crooked congressional and administration malfeasant miscreants.  There are quite literally not enough negative adjectives in the entire Unabridged Oxford English Dictionary to adequately define the unprecedented Benedict Arnold patronizing utterly corrupt criminal proclivities of the vast majority thieves in high office today; these legislators of lobby-pocketed lies do not care about us, they have no concern about our children's future---they don't even care about their own children's future. They are enemies of the Constitution and a growing malignant cancer against any hope for positive progress on the entire planet.  They have no ethics, morals, self-respect or common decency and they deserve no respect from us whatsoever. Thomas Paine, Samuel Adams and Company would very, very displeased, to say the very, very least.



*FootNote:  Some historians and others are now saying it appears that if a massive well-coordinated collective movement among the common masses of We The People does not appear to alter our nation’s perilous direction dramatically, the United States of America will soon become a government where virtually no individual freedom exists and absolutely no dissent of any kind is allowed.  And, based on current indications of global warming, ongoing mass pollution, the increasing AIDS epidemic, decreasing natural and food resources and ongoing proliferation of biological, nuclear and worse weapons of mass destruction, this may be the very least of our worries.  Regardless of our persuasion and political affiliation, is this really the kind of reality we want our children to inherit?  There is no exaggeration here---most unfortunately, there is no need of any.

**FootNote II:  The author agrees with columnist and author Molly Ivins (it's very hard to disagree with the obvious) that the current energy bill supported by American History's Deficit King in the White House, Lucifer's slippery-side supply the pharmaceutical corporation Republicans and Benedict Arnold's Democrats such as Tom 'Bend-Over-The-Other-Cheek' Daschle (not Ms. Ivins' descriptions, but close enough) is perhaps the very worst economic legislation ever passed in the history of the United States (or maybe even the entire planet). Molly Ivins recently wrote:  "Congratulations!  That means you, the users of MTBE-polluted water across the nation, will get to pay for cleaning it up.  This is an amazing energy bill because it will not (A) reduce our dependence on foreign oil; (B) provide significant new energy sources; (C) create many jobs; (D) improve the grid system so we won't have more blackouts; (E) promote energy efficiency or conservation; or (F) do anything about global warming.  But, it will give at least $20 billion in subsides to fossil fuel companies.  Those poor li'l oil, gas, coal and nuclear companies like Exxon Mobil and General Electric need our help.  This is compassionate conservatism."
And then there is what Ms. Ivins accurately refers to as the Medicare "deform" bill, which will force our poorest seniors, many living on considerably less than $1,000 per month, to pay $4000 per year out of their own pockets to help subsidize the pharmaceutical companies and protect their exorbitant prices from being legislated against.  Senator 'Fink'stein, just what miscreant sewer drainpipe is your head stuck inside of?  One could go on and on and on and on, but there are not enough trees left on the planet to pulverize into enough pages to describe the utterly wicked gross malfeasance of the corporation sleazebag pocket-stuffers currently supply-sidin' away the people's funds and planet's future on Capitol Hill.  And by the time the White House Bushwacking International wrecking crew is finished, there just might not be any trees at all left on the land between sea and only a vague distant memory of once shining sea, that is, if we're not all 'limited' nuclear weapon vaporized to kingdom come first!
