Most folks know about the Raging Grannies by now. If you don't, damn it, check them out, google 'em - especially the South Florida "gaggle".

This Sunshine State group gained some online fame back in February when their savage little "Raging Grannies Rip CBS Anti-Choice Super Bowl" YouTube video went viral.

And now they're at it again.

These singing political activists swing hard at Bad Guy targets that need to be swung hard at, and they've hit a home run with their new video, blasting BP and Halliburton for what they've done to our Gulf, and our world.

As South Florida braces for the impact of the oil on our coral reefs, our shorelines, our wildlife, the Grannies have captured the local rage pretty darned well...with some unexpected help, as you'll see at the very end of the video

So - help us make this new little dittie go viral too, won't you? Go watch it on YouTube and "Like" it, repost it and share it and such.


As we all suffer through this horrible oil spill mess - trying to unravel the truth, reform our government's dysfunctional regulatory system and take Big Oil down a few notches once and for all - we also need to vent our rage. Trust me, if you sing along with the chorus to this song at full-throated holler, you'll get at least a few moments of cathartic relief.

Better yet, sing it with a whole gaggle of your own choosing...in public...like outside a BP gas station. Full lyrics, by the way, are available in extended video description on its YouTube viewing page...

So Sing Out, and Protest.
