The Who – Won’t Get Fooled Again (HQ)

The Who – Won’t Get Fooled Again (HQ)

Who, The
Who’s Next (1971)
Won’t Get Fooled Again

We’ll Be Fighting In The Streets
With Our Children At Our Feet
And The Morals That They Worship Will Be Gone
And The Men Who Spurred Us On
Sit In Judgement Of All Wrong
They Decide And The Shotgun Sings The Song

I’ll Tip My Hat To The New Constitution
Take A Bow For The New Revolution
Smile And Grin At The Change All Around
Pick Up My Guitar And Play
Just Like Yesterday
Then I’ll Get On My Knees And Pray
We Don’t Get Fooled Again

The Change, It Had To Come
We Knew It All Along
We Were Liberated From The Fold, That’s All
And The World Looks Just The Same
And History Ain’t Changed
‘Cause The Banners, They Are Flown In The Next War

I’ll Tip My Hat To The New Constitution
Take A Bow For The New Revolution
Smile And Grin At The Change All Around
Pick Up My Guitar And Play
Just Like Yesterday
Then I’ll Get On My Knees And Pray
We Don’t Get Fooled Again
No, No!

I’ll Move Myself And My Family Aside
If We Happen To Be Left Half Alive
I’ll Get All My Papers And Smile At The Sky
Though I Know That The Hypnotized Never Lie
Do Ya?

There’s Nothing In The Streets
Looks Any Different To Me
And The Slogans Are Replaced, By-The-Bye
And The Parting On The Left
Are Now Parting On The Right
And The Beards Have All Grown Longer Overnight

I’ll Tip My Hat To The New Constitution
Take A Bow For The New Revolution
Smile And Grin At The Change All Around
Pick Up My Guitar And Play
Just Like Yesterday
Then I’ll Get On My Knees And Pray
We Don’t Get Fooled Again
Don’t Get Fooled Again
No, No!

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Meet The New Boss
Same As The Old Boss

Go as far as you can see. When you get there, you will see farther…

I wrote this after the guys left my house for any
new hosts.  I didn’t post it right away because I
figured it would disappear before anyone had a
chance to read it.  You can do with it what you will.

 The Occupy Walker’s are a wonderful bunch of guys.
I wish they weren’t walking away so they could stay
again. They are polite, they didn’t leave a mess at
all anywhere and respected myhome. They are
trustworthy. They found places to sleep in our small
house and zonked out.

Mike (my hubby)did all the cooking.

I left a basket of clean towels in the bathroom and
some shower stuff and did a small load of laundry
for them. My CATS like them!

I woke up to soft guitar music on the second morning
which was wonderful.

Sandy and Carol from Occupy Menifee
also helped with food and transportation,
which we sorely needed with eight  people!

When the walkers walked through Temecula, I walked
with them and when I got cold one of them offered me
the jacket off his back!

If you are thinking a about having Occupy Walk in your
home don’t hesitate to do so! It is well worth it.

 I have posted photos on page 2 of our webpage at:

Thanks,   Sharon

Robert Greenwald and his Brave New Foundation will tonight debut their feature-length film, Koch Brothers Exposed, in New York. (The DVD is available here; see the trailer for the film on the last page of this article.) Koch Brothers Exposed weaves together a series of short films produced over the course of the last year or so as part of an online video campaign of the same name. As principals of Koch Industries, the second-largest privately held corporation in America and one of the nation’s top polluters, the Koch brothers have grown notorious for their funding of think-tanks and astroturf organizations that aim to deregulate business and scale back government programs such as Social Security, Medicare and the new healthcare reform law.

Koch Brothers Exposed zeroes in on several aspects of the Kochs’ impact by focusing on the people most affected by the brothers’ use of their billions to buy politicians and ignore regulators. In North Carolina, we meet high school students whose lives would have been gravely impacted had Koch-allied politicians succeeded in undoing the desegregation of the Wake County school system. In Arkansas, the filmmakers take viewers to a community that is riven with cancer, the likely result of toxic dumping by a Koch-owned paper plant. We meet voters in Missouri and Texas who find themselves disenfranchised by a voter-ID law pushed by an organization funded with Koch money.

Before becoming an activist filmmaker, Robert Greenwald enjoyed a long career in the world of commercial film and television, directing the feminist classic, The Burning Bed, and earning a Peabody Award forSharing the Secret, a 2000 made-for-TV movie about a teenager with an eating disorder. He also directed the cult classic, Steal This Movie, about his late friend, Abbie Hoffman — which may speak to where his heart was all along. The advent of Fox News launched Greenwald into the role of an activist when his Brave New Films launched with Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism. Since then Brave New Films and Brave New Foundation have produced a torrent of video shorts and films, including Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price, Rethinking Afghanistan and Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers.

AlterNet sat down with Greenwald to discuss the value of storytelling as an organizing tool — and to explore just what makes the Koch brothers “the 1 percent at its very worst.”
