ERIC BURDON 1968, AMERICA 2017

A reblog of my comment to rob goldstein who was reblogged by jilldennison

This Blog was written a while back, but apparently I forgot to publish it. So here it is in its entirety. Its a bit dated, but not that much… And it seems to just start in the middle of a thought. My apologies.

Directed to all Americans: I would be much happier to see you marching in the streets (peacefully, of course), holding rallies to impeach King Donald, DEMAND A NEW ELECTION because the farce that was held in your country in November last is a million times worse than what you allowed Jeb Bush to do in Florida refusing to count the ballots from particular areas of Miami in a previous election. How can anyone give Trump the legitimacy to be called the President of the United States of America? He obviously intends to break up that union as soon as he gets these other policies through Congress. If you let him ride out his four years as president he will do his best to change the law to allow himself to declare the Republic (not Democracy) dead and appoint himself as supreme leader and DICTATOR OF THE WORLD. Just look in his eyes to see how schizophrenic this man is. He has a mental illness and needs to start taking his meds again.

Hopefully he will send someone from the CIA to find me in Canada and assassinate me for seeing the future he is planning, total genocide of all Muslims whether they are terrorists or good people (they might have children who will become terrorists, mark my words). If I get killed in whatever fashion in the near future, it will be at the Donald’s orders. Please arrest him for my murder.
Get up off your asses and do something to save yourselves. TAKE ACTION. Otherwise it will be like Eric Burdon sang about on his EVERY ONE OF US album in 1968. I quote from memory, “Sure, they’re all good people, sitting around saying ‘Aint it a shame. Aint it a shame.’ Good people, at least they call themselves good people… but someone’s got to do something about it… get off of your big fat you-know-whats and MOVE!!!! or there won’t be anyone left”
Obviouisly Eric was not rapping about America in that song, but it’s like he gave me those words to give to you almost 50 years later. Signing a petition is nice, but it won’t fix your problem, our problem, the world’s problem. Hell, why not go all the way and say it’s the universe’s problem, because the air moved by the wings of a butterfly…
The Monarchs are dying by the millions, and soon those beautiful insects may be no more. And if they go, we will go shortly after them. SAVE A MONARCH, IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP!

I’d keep on going, but I gotta go take a shit. I’m filled up to here with all this crap!

PS: Listen to STEPPENWOLF too…

America, where are you now> Don’t you care about your sons and daughters? Don’t you know? We need you now. We can’t fight alone against the Monster;

Still a Hippie, and proud of it. Have my BSW, now retired. Would have preferred to be a Dr. of Philosophy, but the university I went to wouldn't let me study my own philosophy. Your gain, their loss. I live on the edge of society with my partner, five cats, a broodmare, and a three year-old filly who might make her racing debut this coming summer or fall. Remember the name, Tricksy T Clanton.
