A Paint Job.

 
 
         With the media and lots of the public entering a state of euphoria at the thought of a shiny new President of America, my thoughts turn to the hysteria and euphoria at the election of Tony Blair as UK Prime Minister, and Obama as President in U$A. The first, devout Christian Tony, ignored the will of millions of people as they protested against the illegal invasion of Iraq, and went ahead with his US buddy and decimated Iraq killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people, and the violence still continues today, he is now labelled by many as a war criminal. The other, Obama, the Pope of Peace, massively increased the number of drone strike assassinations and deported more people than any other U$A President in history. Now Biden takes the throne of the U$A imperial war machine, to thunderous applause, how soon will the thin veneer of "change" start to wear off.
        On the subject of change in the crown wearer, I couldn't help but post here a comment that was made to my previous post,     thanks Loam. 
 


       This is the translation of a song by the Cuban revolutionary Carlos Puebla, written when Henry Ford replaced Richard Nixon. Today, the same could be said for Trump and Biden.

EXPIRED CARS - Carlos Puebla

When they removed Nixon
there were those who asked me
what opinion did I have of Mister Ford.

Well look,
Ford seems to me, the same as Chevrolet.

Now tell me
what could i think
about the newly released
Mister Ford?

Well look,
Ford seems to me, the same as the Chevrolet.

Mister Ford is not a shoemaker
he is not a mechanic nor is he a painter
he's just another millionaire
Mister Ford.

Well look,
Ford seems to me, the same as the Chevrolet.

This notorious criminal [Nixon]
big buddy from saigon
leaves us a "great" inheritance:
Mister Ford.

Well look,
Ford seems to me, the same as the Chevrolet.

It's like an expired car
repaired and used
a repaired moron
Mister Ford.

Well look,
Ford seems to me, the same as the Chevrolet.
