Showing the flag

John Prine, "Your Flag Decal Won't Get You Into Heaven Anymore", off of his first album John Prine. As I mentioned before, the sad thing about current history is that you can take the protest songs from 40 years ago, change a few geographic locations and a few politicians' names, and they're still as valid today as they were then... sigh!

  1. Just pick some Tom Lehrer, and what's old is new again...

  2. Except for "New Math." That one os just old.


  3. I couldn't help but notice how much Jeebus has grown in 40 years. Nowadays he loves him some guns and killing is OK if the people you shoot aren't white enough to get into the right church.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
