THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED

YESTERDAY THE SUPREME COURT KILLED THE MUSIC!

BY DECLARING CORPORATIONS A FULL PERSON THAT CAN FUND ANY POLITICAL MESSAGE THEY BACK.

OF COURSE THAT MEANS THESE FOREIGN OWNED CORPORATIONS NOW HAVE THE SAME POWER AS ANY CITIZEN.  CHINESE JUNK IS GOOD  YOU BETCHA! I CAN SEE SINGAPORE FROM MY PORCH!!

In 1970 Don McClean wrote and sung “By By American Pie” a vivid description of where we had been and what we had evolved into.  Listen to the song , even if you were too young or not even here at the time.  If you were here during that period you will understand what your interpretation of the song was.  What I would like you to do is listen to the song and think about the way things are now.  Here’s an interpretation of the original.

THE INTERPRETATION OF VERSE 1  1970

Today at the close of the first decade of the 21st century I find myself pining for the music of my youth and for times that seemed so much simpler.  The shattering of the Constitution of the United States yesterday is comparable to the death mentioned in the song but much more serious to the welfare of the whole.  Bit by bit over the past 30 years and particularly the last ten years our Constitution has been whittled away a piece at a time , by utilizing acts of terror and threats of acts of terror to have us roll over and say “JUST MAKE ME SAFE, I’M AFRAID”

THE CHORUS: ORIGINAL INTERPRETATION

BY BY AMERICAN PIE today is the simple fact that our status as leading economic power, leading military power, leading moral authority and standard bearer for the world days are over.  We have watched the destruction of  the once most powerful economy in the world reduced to third world status by a small group of greedy banksters, aided by crooked politicians and paid for economists that led us and the world to destruction by sending misleading , dishonest signals to the consumers of the US (AND THE WORLD) that we should spend the excess equity in our homes, it was after all our money, and then manufactured loans they knew would blow up and then bet they would.

We have watched the most powerful military in the world , disgraced, humiliated and destroyed by two wars that didn’t have to be engaged in and in fact were told lies to get our backing.  We have now been engaged for 10 years in these wars , neither one of which will ever be stabilized or won.  Meantime our military is worn thin, the troops are burned out, their families destroyed , lives lost, bodies maimed, all for lies.  Disgrace, there is no other word that fits.

VERSE 2 INTERPRETATION

Today’s lady for me is America herself.  A once undying belief in her as a source of good in the world has been shattered over time by her dirty deeds.  During my time in the Military I without question believed my President and my leaders would tell me the truth when it came to things like launching nuclear missiles or the reasons for war.  Naive, you bet your butt I was.  Sooner or later you start to wake up , a book here and a book there , facts garnered bits and pieces at a time till suddenly you realize you have been living a dream.  (nightmare) The lady you held on a pedestal is in fact just a whore.

VERSE 3 INTERPRETATION

TODAY’S VERSION IS:

Summed up by a Bob Dylan quote:

How does it feel

to be on your own

With no direction home

Like a rolling stone.

Exactly, for millions of Americans, left without a job, without a home, without health insurance, without a retirement, without a country ,  WITHOUT !!!

VERSE 4 INTERPERTATION

SAME O SAME O

Today we are facing the tumulus period of trying to find a way out of two wars and to prevent starting two more.  Total unrest with the political and economic systems.  From Teabaggers to Future forecasters calling for revolution it just remains a matter of time to watch the revolution start.  Meantime the fat cats set on the sidelines feeding the flames of revolution, somehow they think they will benefit.  I think they may be wrong about that.

VERSE 5 INTERPRETATION

The turmoil of verse 5 interpretation is depicted today by the Obama supporters dismay of what they have wrought. They banded together is huge numbers, beat the bushes for him , raised money for him, and along with Howard Deans 50 state strategy got him elected.   Just to see him appoint the Satan’s of the economic world to his team.  The bail out of the banksters, the wild spending of money, the escalation of wars, the continuation of torture and rendition have led to a great feeling of abandonment to his young supporters, who now are wandering around with no place to go.  The rising up of the Teabaggers being touted as very pissed off Americans over taxes, health care reform , gays, guns, abortion but really being funded by Astroturf organizations led by the Dick Army’s of the right and fed by racial hatred, religious fundamental yelling points, and led by devils in preachers clothes.

VERSE 6 INTERPRETATION

As in the interpretation if you roamed the country asking everyone you saw “IS THERE ANY GOOD NEWS” they would just turn and walk away.

CONCLUSION INTERPRETATION

Today we are in the exact same blow up point the song exams .  Wars we cannot win, and don’t know why we fight.  30 years of economic leadership we now know was bullshit and designed to make the rich richer.  30 years in which unions were destroyed, wages were lowered, women came into the work force for liberation but it was really done to keep the family income at stable levels,  It now takes two people’s wages to do what one wage use to be able to do.   30 years of watching our jobs being outsourced and replaced by burger flipping or Walmart clerk jobs at a lot less money.  30 years of watching company after company being bought up, merged, cut up and destroyed, from newspapers to manufacturing no company was safe.  But Globalization is good we are told , only one dude along the way (and we said he was crazy) told us what would happen.  Dear ole Ross Perot, the only true sayer in 30 years.  In the last 10 years we watched the real estate market bubble build and build, and we were told to spend the money , get a new mortgage with great initial rates and spend the equity difference, Oh and did we.  They didn’t tell us they were really selling us time bombs with delayed fuses, (OH AND THEY OWNED THE FUSE COMPANY) that would blow up in the near future they would take the house back and start the cycle over again.  Now we wait for the final bomb to go off.  We all know it’s coming , when is the only question.  Now like then , things looked pretty bleak  , yet we made it another 40 years.  The bounce will be a bitch but we will make it up again.
