FIXING TO DIE RAG

Come on all of you big strong men,
Uncle Shrub needs your help again.
Hes got himself in a terrible jam
In Iraq and Afghanistan
So put down your books and pick up a gun,
We're gonna have a whole lotta fun.

And its one, two, three, four,
What are we fighting for ?
Do'nt ask me, I do'nt give a damn,
Next stop will be Iran;
And its five, six, seven, eight,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

Well, come on generals, lets move fast;
Your big chance has come at last.
Gotta go out and get those towelheads
The only good Ay-rab is the one who's dead
And you know that peace can only be won
When we've blown 'em all to kingdom come.

And it's one, two, three, four,
What are we fighting for ?
Do'nt ask me, I do'nt give a damn,
Next stop will be Iran;
And its five, six, seven, eight,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there aint no time to wonder why
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

Well, come on Halliburton, do'nt move slow,
Why man, this is war a-go-go.
There's plenty good money to be made
By supplying the Army with the tools of the trade,
Just hope and pray that if they drop the bomb,
They drop it on Tehran.

And its one, two, three, four,
What are we fighting for ?
Do'nt ask me, I do'nt give a damn,
Next stop will be Iran.
And its five, six, seven, eight,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

Chicken Hawks throughout the land,
Pack your kids off to Afghanistam.
Come on people, do'nt hesitate,
Send your kids before its too late.
Be the first one on your block
To have your kid sent home in a box.

And it's one, two, three, four,
What are we fighting for ?
Do'nt ask me, I do'nt give a damn,
Next stop will be Iran.
And its five, six, seven, eight,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.


London's tube wuz brought to a halt
Neocon Ledeen sez it's Iran's fault
Get Scooter on dah fone right quick
Spring Judy from dah cage to report the schtick
Don't send Wilson - he'll fuk up
He ain't no propah Bush suk-up*

And it's one, two, three, four,
What are we fighting for ?
Do'nt ask me, I do'nt give a damn,
Next stop will be Iran.
And its five, six, seven, eight,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

Yes it's one, two, three, four,
What are we fighting for ?
Do'nt ask me, I do'nt give a dang,
Next stop might be Pyongyang.
And its five, six, seven, eight,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

I wasn't gonna comment here again, but I travelled over here as I happened to be chattin with one of my friends who's over in Iraq at the moment. And I must say, that's the most disgusting thing I've ever read.

Exactly what is that sposed to do? Warm the hearts of people who have lost their kids in a war? You don't seem like your spitting in Bush's face so much as your just bashing the troops.

Howie,
  Dare you to sing it in public… Since, you played the part of the actor in “Team America”, I know you have what it takes to sing and dance your way to the pearly gates… Getting in is the real question… Good Luck on getting in, if you take the dare...

And no one recalls it's a variation on Country Joe's "Fixin to Die Rag" sung the LAST TIME lying cowards in the White House sent young people to their deaths for nothing (but oil and fool's pride).

HEY -- it ain't the song that's obscene -- it's the dead men, women, and children that could have lived their lives but for the cowboy's insanity. It's the living breathing bodies ripped apart by hot steel and collapsing roofs. THAT's disgusting. It's the sneering smirking stupidity of the morons in the White House that's obscene.

And our military fulfills its tradition of stepping up to the plate and cleaning up the mess some morons in suits stirred up.

So blame Howie because he's the one killing the kids in Iraq, isn't he? He's the one that sent them there and kept them there, right? The one who smirks when he talks about how sorry he is for the sacrifice.

It's time to bring back the Wobblies.

No one has said the war is Howie's fault. My disgust was aimed at the idea of typing somethin like this up as if one was proud of it.

I know it's hard to believe, but there are ways to support the troops without supporting what the administration is doin. And typing this shit up isn't one of them.

No, douche bag. It's "here, here" as in "good point" (in reference to miss hobby's response). Obviously you are too uneducated to understand parliament-speak. I would never dignify support howie's ridiculous post in some sick affirmation as to give him some sort of pleasure to believe that he is "intelligent" or "clever" for modeling his post after a song. You, reader, however would because you're too simple-minded to understand anything outside of what you are told and how it is sold.

Typical.

(And yes, I'm the same person from before.)

You know, I had this nice, long, condemning thing written out, about how stupid what you said is, but then I remembered...civility doesn't apply to you. I'm sinking to your level. It's not the best, not that good, but I think it works.



Can you hear that sound?
It's the sound of idiocy floatin' round.
Hatred is all his words convey
ideology of Stalin and Timothy McVeigh
Praise to allah and death to the American way.

Let them hit us
let them come
Don't retaliate
Cuz-that'd-be-dumb
Appease them, tell them we'll fix this
Drop to your knee's.
And ask Bin Ladens forgiveness.

Fuck the soldiers and what they fight for
their just guilty pawns in Bush's oil war.
Under Bush there is no home of the brave
or land of the free
yet I spew my bullshit with the Freedom of speech

Let them hit us
let them come
Don't retaliate
Cuz-that'd-be-dumb
Appease them, tell them we'll fix this
Drop to your knee's.
And ask Bin Ladens forgiveness.

Rape rooms? Death Squads?
Uday and Qusay?
taht's just wat all teh bushies say
Iraq was a modern society
with colleges and schools
no murder, no rape
u dum rethuglikkan fools

Let them hit us
let them come
Don't retaliate
Cuz-that'd-be-dumb
It's not too late, there's still time to fix this
Drop to your knee's.
And ask Bin Ladens forgiveness.

Not only are you rude, but you have an elevated perception of your own education:

hear hear (alternatively and wrongly thought to be 'here here') is derived from 'hear him, hear him' first used by a members (of British Parliament) in attempting to draw attention and provide support to a speaker.

The use of 'hear him, hear him' dated from the late 1500's according to Random House and the OED; the shortened 'hear hear' parliamentary expression seems to have developed in the late 1700's, since when its use has been more widely adopted, notably in recent times in local government and council meetings, committee meetings, formal debates, etc. Today the 'hear hear' expression could arguably be used by anyone in a meeting wanting to show support for a speaker or viewpoint expressed.

Well, the real problem with this post is that the U.S. was in the right in Vietnam.

A traitorous left crippled our morale and our troops. The wise-ass humor that Howie thinks so funny is anything but.

The result of the U.S. defeat in Vietnam: the institution of a Stalinist government, tens of thousands of executions, millions of refugee boat people, and an economy in tatters.

Howie would obviously prefer to see the same result in Iraq. There's a word for this... cowardice. Thirty years from now, you silly young man, you will look back on shame at this childish yammering. That is, if you ever do develop a lick of sense.

Uhh .. have any of you guys -- the super patriots, the ones dissing Howie saying that his somewhat tasteless sense of humor is actually treason -- have any of you guys actually served in the US military, put yourself in a situation where you might actually be asked to do more than just say "Yaay team?"

Who me? Yeah, 1964 USMC -- Second Armored Amphibious, did it -- didn't like it, but I did it.

This is all a joke, right? Just some clever satire? You can't be serious...can you? Can you?

Thanks for visiting UPI and keeping it clean, howie. Liger has the honor of being the first post deleted for obscenity, so hopefully his lame ass won't be back. Profanity is the only thing that'll ever be banned at UPI, not differing points of view.

Not that I have anything against profanity. Fuckin'-A! I like talking like a clueless thug! It requires less thinking, and less thinking saves energy.

...right. This blog is about a serious as Paris Hilton's career.

I've seen better, intellectual dissucsions that AREN'T flatout biased on other blogs/sites. This is just some college student's outlet for his socialist, not liberal, beliefs as a means to pick up comments, web traffic, and, sadly, followers.

The only way howie gets traffic is through blog-hopping and commenting on blogs with his infamous lines "I have a blog...a very progressive one." Which is, of course, a kin to Paris Hilton saying "That's hot!" and getting attention for it.

Everyone would be best advised to actually stimulate their minds and READ the news and formulate your own opinions about things instead of reading howie's blog.

Howie! I'm so glad to see that you have gone out on your own as a blogger. Don't listen to those right wing critics. You're doing a great job informing people of the truth.

Pal, pal, pal. Take your meds. If this is what you think all Americans and troops are like, then do leave. And if you're no longer in the US, please stay out. We like our land clean.
