Satirical re-write of the full length version of "America The Beautiful" by Jay Esbe


O dutiful to specious lies
To wickedness for gain
For plutocrat’s dear President
Above the law remains
America! America!
Bush brought disgree to thee
And crowned his Skulls in brotherhood
From fee to wicked fee!


O beautiful to Latin feet
Who’s crossing’s not denied
A thoroughfare of the labor cheap
Across the desert die
America! America!
Bush crushed thee with the cost
Confirmed the men who’ll make him King
Thy liberty is lost!

O beautiful for contractors
In occupation’s strife
Who more than country profit loved
And earnings more than life!
America! America!
Now Bush thy King defines
Till all his soldiers meet their fate
And he’s declared divine!

O beautiful for Patriot Act
That lasts beyond four years
Thine flooded southern coastline rots
Now wet with human tears!
America! America!
Bush dropped a turd on thee
And crowned his Skulls with brotherhood
From fee to wicked fee!

O beautiful for smog filled skies
For bearing acid rain
For plutocrat’s dear President
Remains though he’s insane
America! America!
Bush cast disgrace on thee
As black one’s bummed he played and strummed
And ‘Orleans met the sea

O beautiful to Latin feet
Who’s crossing’s not denied
A thoroughfare of the labor cheap
Across the desert die
America! America!
Bush crushed thy sovereignty
The only jobs to Mexicans
His freedom’s not for thee

O beautiful for photo ops
On aircraft flight deck’s glee
When once again
for polling points
He lied again to thee
America! America!
Bush pushed one out on thee
His reeking Mission Accomplished sign
The banner for the fee

O beautiful for patriot act
That lasts beyond four years
Thine flooded southern coastline rots
As he goes after queers
America! America!
Bush shat a load on thee
And crowned his Skulls with brotherhood
- A whiter New Orleans

In defense of the conspiratorial world view

9/11: If I knew nothing else about it, I'd know this.

Why they really won't impeach him and how the failure to impeach carries the seeds of the next war.

A man without a country; The price of Truth.

Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi: this is pathetic, heartbreaking and treasonous. You MUST relieve Bush of command.

"Conservatism" = We The People "Drowned in a bath tub".
