Rock and roll activism-80’s style

June 4, 2008

Faith No More really does care a lot. First, the lyrics, then the timeless video.

Faith No More
Introduce Yourself (1987)
We Care A Lot

We care a lot about disasters, fires, floods and killer bees
We care a lot about the NASA shuttle falling in the sea
We care a lot about starvation and the food that Live Aid bought
We care a lot about disease, baby Rock, Hudson, rock, yeah!

We care a lot about the gamblers and the pushers and the geeks
We care a lot about the crack and smack and whack that hits the street
We care a lot about the welfare of all the boys and girls
We care a lot about you people cause we’re out to save the world

YEAH!

And it’s a dirty job but someone’s gotta do it

We care a lot about the army navy air force and marines
We care a lot about the SF, NY and LAPD
We care a lot about you people, about your guns
about the wars you’re fighting gee that looks like fun

We care a lot about the Garbage Pail Kids, they never lie
We care a lot about Transformers cause there’s more than meets the eye

We care a lot about the little things, the bigger things we top
We care a lot about you people yeah you bet we care a lot,

YEAH!

Well, its a dirty job but someone’s gotta do it
And it’s a dirty song but someone’s gotta sing it

Conservatives more honest than liberals?

June 3, 2008

Apparently according to this study.

One point not covered in the article is how both sides are patently dishonest about their love of government. Liberals hate the government when it comes to it dictating morality, but love it when it comes to controlling people’s wallets. Conservatives are just the flip-side of that coin.
