I can't wait for Skynyrd's retaliation song
I've always liked Neil Young. Perhaps it's my fascination with odd sounding lead singers.
But now his anti-American rhetoric is pissing me off. Here's the lyrics to his latest song, "Let's Impeach the President":
Let’s impeach the president for lying
And leading our country into war
Abusing all the power that we gave him
And shipping all our money out the door
He’s the man who hired all the criminals
The White House shadows who hide behind closed doors
And bend the facts to fit with their new stories
Of why we have to send our men to war
Let’s impeach the president for spying
On citizens inside their own homes
Breaking every law in the country
By tapping our computers and telephones
What if Al Qaeda blew up the levees
Sheltered by our government’s protection
Or was someone just not home that day?
Let’s impeach the president
For hijacking our religion and using it to get elected
Dividing our country into colors
And still leaving black people neglected
Thank god he’s cracking down on steroids
Since he sold his old baseball team
There’s lot of people looking at big trouble
But of course the president is clean
Where do I start here?
- Most of these lyrics are extremely strong exaggerations or outright lies.
- What do you mean "our country" asshole? Last time I checked, you were Canadian. Maybe instead of "president", you meant to say "prime minister"?
- Exactly what prompted him to write this song? Last I heard, he was writing "Let's Roll" in honor of the victims of Flight 93. Is the cash flow starting to dry out for Neil? Maybe he realized it's time for him to try to recapture some of his youth (and cash) by writing protest songs again. I'm sure he'd be able to regain some of popularity with the loony left by offering crackpot theories that appeal to them.
