Blues for Woody

Today is now Tuesday, 3 October 2006.

Are the anti-Christ(ian) coalition political gangsters getting slow on the draw?

It wasn’t really until yesterday that the homophobic chorus began: Cong. Foley is a product of ‘permissiveness, promiscuity, and homosexuality.’

Never mind that most pedophiles are heterosexual white males, as are most serial killers.

I’m sure the Goose-Steppers for a More Aryan Jesus wish it were still those good old days in Germany in the ‘30s, when they just could blame it all on the Jews.

Woody Guthrie died this day, 1967.

(Woody Guthrie)

Jesus Christ was a man who traveled through the land
Hard working man and brave
He said to the rich, "Give your goods to the poor."
So they laid Jesus Christ in his grave.

Jesus was a man, a carpenter by hand
His followers true and brave
One dirty little coward called Judas Iscariot
Has laid Jesus Christ in his grave.

He went to the sick, he went to the poor,
And he went to the hungry and the lame;
Said that the poor would one day win this world,
And so they laid Jesus Christ in his grave.

He went to the preacher, he went to the sheriff,
Told them all the same;
Sell all of your jewelry and give it to the Poor,
But they laid Jesus Christ in his grave.

When Jesus came to town, the working folks around,
Believed what he did say;
The bankers and the preachers they nailed him on a cross,
And they laid Jesus Christ in his grave.

Poor working people, they follered him around,
Sung and shouted gay;
Cops and the soldiers, they nailed him in the air,
And they nailed Jesus Christ in his grave.

Well the people held their breath when they heard about his death,
And everybody wondered why;
It was the landlord and the soldiers that he hired.
That nailed Jesus Christ in the sky.

When the love of the poor shall one day turn to hate.
When the patience of the workers gives away
"Would be better for you rich if you never had been born"
So they laid Jesus Christ in his grave.

This song was written in New York City
Of rich men, preachers and slaves
Yes, if Jesus was to preach like he preached in Galillee,
They would lay Jesus Christ in his grave.

John Ross, principal chief of the Cherokee born this day 1790 at Stone Mountain Georgia. Challenged the removal order of the U.S. Government before the Supreme Court with Chief Justice Marshall.

Chief Justice Marshall, writing for the majority, overturned the removal order holding that the Cherokee were a sovereign nation and that the U.S. government must honor all treaties made with the Cherokee.

President Andrew "Old Hickory" Jackson, ignoring the decision ordered the removal (later named by the forcibly evicted indiginous residents "The Trail of Tears")in defiance of the Supreme Court's decision, infamously declaring "Chief Justice Marshall has made his ruling, let's see him enforce it."

Plus ca change, plus ca meme chose.
