      2. I wouldn't go quite that far.

      jackpineradicals.com came about in 2016. That was a good thing.

          21. Ventura is part of the "knowledge" movement??

          :rofl:

          The same idiot who “proved” the world would end in 2012? I hope he’s gained enough “knowledge” to renounce that bullshit tv show of his. He’s been part of the problem for years.

          27. From a great play from the last time it got this interesting

          http://www.cloverlyrics.com/e51605-judy_collins~marat_sade_lyrics.html

           

          “The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade”

          4 years after the revolution
          and the old kings execution
          4 years after remember how
          those portia took their final bow

          String up every aristocrat
          Out with the priests and let then live on their fat

          Four years after we started fighting
          Marat keeps up with his writing
          Four years after the bastille fell
          He still recalls the old battle yell

          Down with all of the ruling class
          Throw all the generals out on their ass

          Why do they have the gold
          Why do they have the power why why why why why
          Do they have the friends at the top

          Why do they have the jobs at the top

          We’ve got nothing always had nothing
          Nothing but holes and millions of them
          Living in holes
          Dying in holes
          Holes in our bellies and
          Holes in our clothes

          Marat we’re poor
          And the poor stay poor
          Marat don’t make us wait any more
          We want our rights and we don’t care how
          We want a revolution
          Now

          Four years he fought and he fought unafraid
          Sniffing down traitors by traitors betrayed
          Marat in the courtroom
          Marat underground
          Sometimes the otter and sometimes the hound

          Fighting all the gentry and fighting every priest
          The business man the bourgeois the military beast
          Marat always ready to stifle every scheme
          Of the sons of the ass licking dying regime

          We’ve got new generals our leaders are new
          They sit and they argue and all that they do
          is sell their own colleagues
          And ride upon their backs
          Or jail them
          Or break them
          Or give them all the ax
          Screaming in language that no one understand
          Of the rights that we grab with our own bleeding hands
          When we wiped out the bosses
          And stormed threw the wall of the prison you told us would outlast us all

          Marat we’re poor
          And the poor stay poor
          Marat don’t make us wait any more.
          We want our rights and we don’t care how
          We want a revolution
          Now

          Poor old marat they hunt you down
          The bloodhounds are sniffing all over the town
          Just yesterday your printing press was smashed
          Now their asking your home address

          Poor old Marat in you we trust
          You work till your eyes turn as red a rust
          But while you write their on your track
          The boots mount the staircase
          The doors thrown back

          Poor old Marat in you we trust
          You work till your eyes turn as red a rust
          Poor old marat we trust in you

          Marat we’re poor
          And the poor stay poor
          Marat don’t make us wait any more
          We want our rights and we don’t care how
          We want a revolution
          Now

          The lyrics to the song are great:

          I come home in the morning light
          My mother says “you voted for my candidate, right?”
          Oh mother dear, Clinton-Kaine were not the ones
          Cause Bernie, he would have won
          Oh Bernie would have won

          The phone rings, 3am in the night
          Bill Clinton asked me “did I vote for his wife?”
          Your Neoliberal polices are quite dumb
          And bernie, he would have won
          Oh bernie would have won

          That’s all we really want
          To smash the oligarchic system
          The working class they would have come
          For Bernie! and he would have won
          Oh, Bernie would have won

          Bernie, he woulda
          Bernie woulda won, he woulda
          Bernie woulda

          Some groups take a beautiful candidate
          And hide him away from their constit-you-ence-say
          We all know who the DNC stole it from
          From Bernie, who woulda beat trump
