"Friends, Humans, and Countrymen, Lend Me Your Fears..."

"...and I'll Pay You Back With Interest!" ;)


I'm the grown-up here,
You're the "quote-unquote youth",
You thought you knew the truth,
Until I smacked you from the booth,
So damn long-in-the-tooth,
And yet, so-short in the proof,
And yet,
Still so damn willing,
To send the youth, to shoot,
I can feel the tool of the jackboot,
Lacin' up tight,
I feel the fools of the jackboot,
I'm sayin' it's alright,
We all pawns, in the game,
We were spawned, into shame,
A land that loves it's name, it's lies and it's fame,
I see the game clearly,
There's no need to fear me,
I can't destroy the World a thousand times,
Stand near me,
Stand beside me,
And you can stand on your own,
I don't want sheep callin' and praisin',
I don't even got a phone,
But maybe I got a clone,
A breeder, of leaders,
I want you controlling what you own,
The idea grows, as I seed her,
The birth or death of a nation,
Seems the situation we facin',
I'm tracin' the roots of evil,
The face behind what we're facin',
With God's gracin',
I'll be lacin' up my tennis shoes more,
Maybe have me a son, and a daughter for sure,
But I'm on a World Tour,
To stop a World War on The Poor,
And the killing machine's hungry,
So they're creating some more,
It gets me pro-creating more,
Refining, until I'm shining,
And there's got to be a reason,
Why my birth stone is a diamond,
There's got to be a reason,
I'm people-pleasin' this way,
And I worked hard enough,
To have something to say,
God made it easy,
For every male and female,
To email every male and female,
My tall tale - or fail,
Or check the 'net to craft your own,
Go on, see who's trapped at home,
For no damn good reason,
Except to say what's going on,
I pray we see the con,
I pray we see what's going on,
Power tells us not to trust People,
So why we going on and on?
I checked the internet, saw ideas I respect,
People protecting People,
Getting power upset,
So they tell us not to trust,
And they give us tools to lust,
Trying to make us all forget,
The 'net is God's gift to us,
I got the proof for ya,
My Family Tree,
Just see the millions and millions of us,
Doing it for free...

Peace, (NOW!!!)

P.S. Saving The World is easy, just watch "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and "The Colbert Report" to know the government and media are lying to us ALL the time, then check and newswires or The Alex Jones Radio Show for how badly and why. Then distribute copies of "TerrorStorm" on DVD or Google Video, and tell this to everyone so they have the option of waking up! NOW!!!

Racism's back,
It's not like it ever left,
But it's moved to the Left,
And been given a little heft,
Sold legit, bullshit,
TV spittin' and written,
They torture people without trial:
So why are we quittin'?
Chasin' cash and kitten,
Eye-lashes smitten,
By suburban dreams sold as teens,
I guess feelin' is fittin',
But where are we gittin' to goin'?
If we ain't slowin' the show?
And how can we forget?


How can we forget?
5 years later,
Time moves so slow,

For those in the know,
The torture's so slow,
We gotta sit back,
And watch you skip,
The horrorshow...


Check the 'net,
It ain't torture porn,
It's just gettin' set,
'Cause if they do it to them,
Then they can do it to us,
And how are we gonna say?
"In God We Trust"?
The lust and the greed,
Both plant a seed,
But a brother in need,
Is a brother indeed,
And another mother in need,
Of a hug, or a drug,
Even 2Pac loved his Mama,
And he was a "thug",
And "T.H.U.G.-L.I.F.E.",
Stands for:
"The Hate You Give Little Infants Fucks Everyone",
And these Children of God, can't see the sun,
Brown fathers thrown in jails,
All in hell with no bail,
Think I'm telling tall tales?
How does your memory fail?
How can we just sit back?
We know we're under attack?
They're tellin' lies to support us,
Rapin' Iraq...


How can we forget?
5 years later,
Time moves so slow,

For those in the know,
The torture's so slow,
We gotta sit back,
And watch you skip,
The horrorshow...


Screamin' and yellin' at parties,
Smarty-arty Bacardi's,
Rum and Coke's, smokes and jokes,
Liquor loosening bodies,
Relax now, have your fun,
Wake up, it's one and done,
C'mon daughter! C'mon son!
C'mon nearly everyone!
Want healthcare?
Or to sit back and stare?
At the country's cupboards,
Being robbed bare?
On the "news",
They never really show you the news,
They jacked Imelda Marcos over a thousand shoes,
I got a thousand news stories to tell,
I done seen hell,
And I done feel swell,
It's not that hard, from here, to let 'em know,
That we don't want to be next,
In Guantanamo...

Bush is crap, says Prescott

Deputy PM criticises US handling of Middle East, condemning 'cowboy' President at private meeting

London Independent | August 17, 2006

By Colin Brown

John Prescott has given vent to his private feelings about the Bush presidency, summing up George Bush's administration in a single word: crap.

The Deputy Prime Minister's condemnation of President Bush and his approach to the Middle East could cause a diplomatic row but it will please Labour MPs who are furious about Tony Blair's backing of the United States over the bombing of Lebanon.

The remark is said to have been made at a private meeting in Mr Prescott's Whitehall office on Tuesday with Muslim MPs and other Labour MPs with constituencies representing large Muslim communities. Muslim MPs wanted to press home their objections to British foreign policy and discuss ways of improving relations with the Muslim communities.

Some of the MPs present said yesterday they could not remember Mr Prescott making the remark. He has been at pains to avoid breaking ranks with Mr Blair in public although he is believed to have raised concern about the bombing of Lebanon at a private meeting of the Cabinet. But Harry Cohen, the MP whose constituency includes Walthamstow, scene of some of the police raids in the alleged "terror plot" investigation, said Mr Prescott had definitely used the word "crap" about the Bush administration.

"He was talking in the context of the 'road map' in the Middle East. He said he only gave support to the war on Iraq because they were promised the road map. But he said the Bush administration had been crap on that. We all laughed and he said to an official, 'Don't minute that'." Mr Cohen added: "We also had a laugh when he said old Bush is just a cowboy with his Stetson on. But then he said, 'I can hardly talk about that can I?'

Last night, an official from the Deputy Prime Minister's office said: " These discussions are intended to be private and remain within the four walls. They are private so that there may be frank discussions."

And today Mr Prescott denied that he called George Bush "crap" and "a cowboy". Mr Prescott issued a statement in which he said: " This is an inaccurate report of a private conversation and it is not my view. "

Told that others at the meeting could not recall the words, Mr Cohen said: " He did. I stand by that."

Many Labour MPs have been infuriated by the spectacle of Mr Bush and Mr Blair jointly supporting the Israeli action. The Labour MPs went to see Mr Prescott to lodge their criticism of the Government's foreign policy and some said last night that they would be delighted if he did break ranks over the Bush administration following the outcry at the bombing of the Lebanon.

In the private discussions with Mr Prescott, the Labour MPs representing large Muslim communities pulled no punches in their criticism of Mr Blair for giving his backing to Mr Bush. Another of those who was contacted about the conversations did not deny Mr Prescott's words, but laughed and said: " I can't discuss that." When asked whether he had heard Mr Prescott use the "C-word", he said: "I don't remember that."

The Deputy Prime Minister is said to have made it clear he strongly backed the efforts by Mr Blair to persuade the Bush administration to revive the road map for Palestine and Israel. Mr Blair has given a commitment that he will give the peace process his priority when he returns from his holiday in the Caribbean.

"There was a very robust exchange of views," said the MP. " We had a row about community relations. The Deputy Prime Minister was told in no uncertain terms that the Government was relying too much on the elders in the Muslim community who didn't have the credibility that was needed."

Muslim Labour MPs also told Mr Prescott that they needed to retain their own credibility in their communities, which was one of the reasons why they had signed a controversial letter calling for a change in British foreign policy. They said it was not helpful for the Government to have attacked their letter.

Mr Prescott has been accused in the past of making his feelings known about the Republican administration in the White House. He became friendly with Al Gore, the unsuccessful Democrat presidential candidate in 2000, during the negotiations on the Kyoto treaty and allegedly told Mr Gore after his defeat that he was sorry he lost the race to Mr Bush.

Mr Prescott is also known to have used the word "crap" in relation to political events before. Earlier this month, he angrily rejected claims that he could resign over the row about his links to the bid by the tycoon Philip Anschutz for a super-casino at the Millennium Dome as "a load of crap".

Mr Prescott was left in charge by Mr Blair when the Prime Minister went on his delayed holiday but has largely taken a back seat while John Reid, the Home Secretary, has led for the Government on security and the alleged terror plot to blow up planes across the Atlantic.

Behind the scenes, Mr Prescott had to contend with growing backbench demands for Parliament to be recalled to debate the crisis in the Middle East. It remains an option, in spite of the ceasefire in the Lebanon. Campaigners claimed they had the signatures of more than 150 MPs from all parties for a recall. Significantly, they included Ann Keen, the parliamentary private secretary to Gordon Brown, the Chancellor, who is on paternity leave following the birth of his second child. Jim Sheridan, the Labour MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire North, resigned as the parliamentary private secretary to the defence ministers over the bombing of Lebanon.

Mr Prescott has been keen to show Labour MPs that he is prepared to listen to their grievances but has insisted on party discipline to avoid splits. He will be furious at his alleged remarks being repeated, but the signs of dissent within the Cabinet are becoming greater.

Straight-talker's way with words

* Posing with a crab in a jar at the Millennium Dome, while Peter Mandelson was standing for election to Labour's ruling national executive committee, he said to cameramen: "You know what his name is? He's called Peter. Do you think you will get on the executive, Peter?"

* When asked why a car was transporting him and his wife 200 yards to the Labour Party Conference in 1999:

"Because of the security reasons for one thing and second, my wife doesn't like to have her hair blown about. Have you got another silly question?"

* On the Millennium Dome: "If we can't make this work, we're not much of a government."

* "The green belt is a Labour achievement, and we mean to build on it." (Radio interview, January 1998)

* On the Tories at the 1996 Labour conference: "They are up to their necks in sleaze. The best slogan for their conference next week is " Life's better under the Tories" - sounds like one of Steven Norris's chat-up lines."

* When asked by a journalist about Peter Law's decision to quit the Labour Party after 35 years: "Why are you asking me about this? I don't care, it's a Welsh situation, I'm a national politician."
