I found this in a message board at the smirking chimp tonight...It isn't exactly an editorial, but it certainly says volumes about the state of our country on one more Independence Day:

Quote:
I posted this in 2002.

It is disappointing, but not unexpected, that none of the lyrics needed changing.

Of course, it's lifted from George Harrison:

I look at you all,
As our founders lie bleeding,
While stripes and stars gently weep.
We live in a pall
With so few of us heeding.
Still stripes and stars gently weep.

You fell in line when those
Reich-wingers told you
How to unfold your hate.
You saw God’s sign in their
Drive to control you.
They bought and sold your fate.

I see us devolve,
We accept all that’s rotten,
While stripes and stars gently weep.
And every outrage
Is so promptly forgotten.
Still stripes and stars gently weep.

The wake-up sounds, but the
Nation’s diverted
By the perverted horde.
You buy the line that they’re
All Christ-converted:
Hail the insane war lords.

I look at you all,
Plight my troth with the bleeding,
While stripes and stars gently weep.

I look at you all…

Still stripes and stars gently weep.

Peace, Road

Thanks, Road...too bad things haven't changed for the better since 2002.
