Remembering The Battle Of Tours

The Battle of Tours in 782 is not taught to Americans until they get to a European History Class. The location of the battle was close to the border between the Frankish realm and then-independent Aquitaine. The battle pitted the snarling Frankish and Burgundian forces under Austrian Mayor of the Palace Charles Martel, against an army of the Umayyad Caliphate led by Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi, Governor-General of al-Andalus.

"Had Charles Martel not been victorious," Hitler told his inner crowd in August 1942, "then we should in all probability have been converted to Mohammedanism, that cult which glorifies the heroism and which opens up the seventh Heaven to the bold warrior alone. Then the Germanic races would have conquered the world."

Historians are divided over the battle's importance, and considerable disagreement exists as to whether the victory was responsible—as Gibbon and his generation of historians claimed, and many modern historians have echoed—for saving Christianity and halting the conquest of Europe by Islam; however, there is little dispute that the battle helped lay the foundations of the Carolingian Empire and Frankish domination of Europe for the next century.

The Other Three Corners Of Racism

The Pratfalls of Presumption...
ARCH-NEOCON DAVID HOROWITZ has commented on Facebook today concerning the continued silence of the liberals with regard to the historical peoples revolt against the totalitarian theocratic dictatorship. His remarks of course are spot on...

And let us not get carried away. No one, not even the neo-cons are advocating interceding militarily in Iran, but a voice of support for those marching hordes who are not only exercising the rights of free expression in calling for free elections that we support here in the United States, but they are also voicing opposition to an unquestionably sworn enemy of ours in Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

How much plainer can this opportunity to extend textbook American graciousness to an oppressed people be? But I suppose in this case, only the wistful teleprompter of our much heralded Barack Obama knows for sure.

Horowitz writes:

Here's one scene from the historic revolt in Iran. Everything liberals pretend to be concerned about is on the line in Tehran today. Basic freedom to vote and have your vote counted; basic freedom to protest and not be killed. Even the style of the revolt is something for liberals to celebrate—the Tweeter revolution, the women's revolution, the revolution of the young. But liberals are silent. They want their government, their White House, to pretend it has no stake in the outcome, that it can deal with either Iran, the Iran of the Islamo-fascists who oppress their own people and want to kill us, or the Iran of those freedom loving citizens whose blood is running in the streets. Shameful.

Props to Mr. Horowitz for pointing out what seems to be obvious to anyone not blinded by party shenanigans, those poor souls who prefer a knotty grudge match to anything remotely akin to what some of us prefer to call principles. Don't misunderstand me. I speak plainly here. As far as I'm concerned, the Left and the Right are opposing butt cheeks of the same dumb-ass political machine.

As a staunch constitutionalist I prefer a strict adherence to those founding principles that inform individual liberty with abiding responsibility and uniform and unifying justice. But why did we and why do we continue to waste the perceptions and inertia our founders left us in writing and in deed? Our nation is floundering in a mess. Both parties have contributed heavily to the burdens now foisted upon the American people. And as a result, I fear the worst is closing in upon us all. But I can appreciate the work David Horowitz and Anne Wortham is doing for America today, even though folks of our intellectual ilk will continue to be called racists and nazis by small minds.

So, toast yourselves: 60s countercultural radicals, 80s yuppies and 90s bourgeois bohemians. Toast yourselves, Black America. Shout your glee Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Duke, Stanford, and Berkeley. You have elected not an individual who is qualified to be president, but a Black man who, like the pragmatist Franklin Roosevelt, promises to—Do Something! You now have someone who has picked up the baton of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society. But you have also foolishly traded your freedom and mine—what little there is left—for the chance to feel good.
So even as we note that the landscape is littered with false assumptions and intellectual scoundrels, let us turn to another important American voice on the issue of racial politics gone awry, Professor Wortham as she writes with a special combination of intelligence and self-awareness:

MY FELLOW AMERICANS, please know I am black. I grew up in the segregated South. I did not vote for Barack Obama; I wrote in Ron Paul’s name as my choice for president. Most importantly, I am not race conscious. I do not require a Black president to know that I am a person of worth, and that life is worth living. I do not require a Black president to love the ideal of America.

I cannot join you in your celebration. I feel no elation. There is no smile on my face. I am not jumping with joy. There are no tears of triumph in my eyes. For such emotions and behavior to come from me, I would have to deny all that I know about the requirements of human flourishing and survival—all that I know about the history of the United States of America, all that I know about American race relations, and all that I know about Barack Obama as a politician. I would have to deny the nature of the “change” that Obama asserts has come to America.

Most importantly, I would have to abnegate my certain understanding that you have chosen to sprint down the road to serfdom that we have been on for over a century. I would have to pretend that individual liberty has no value for the success of a human life. I would have to evade your rejection of the slender reed of capitalism on which your success and mine depend. I would have to think it somehow rational that 94 percent of the 12 million Blacks in this country voted for a man because he looks like them (that Blacks are permitted to play the race card), and that they were joined by self-declared “progressive” whites who voted for him because he doesn’t look like them.

professor wortham
Professor Anne Wortham
I would have to wipe my mind clean of all that I know about the kind of people who have advised and taught Barack Obama and will fill posts in his administration—political intellectuals like my former colleagues at the Harvard University ’s Kennedy School of Government.

I would have to believe that “fairness” is equivalent of justice. I would have to believe that a man who asks me to “go forward in a new spirit of service, in a new service of sacrifice” is speaking in my interest. I would have to accept the premise of a man that economic prosperity comes from the “bottom up,” and who arrogantly believes that he can will it into existence by the use of government force. I would have to admire a man who thinks the standard of living of the masses can be improved by destroying the most productive and the generators of wealth.

Finally, Americans, I would have to erase from my consciousness the scene of 125,000 screaming, crying, cheering people in Grant Park, Chicago irrationally chanting “Yes We Can!” Finally, I would have to wipe all memory of all the times I have heard politicians, pundits, journalists, editorialists, bloggers and intellectuals declare that capitalism is dead—and no one including, especially Alan Greenspan, objected to their assumption that the particular version of the anti-capitalistic mentality that they want to replace with their own version of anti-capitalism is anything remotely equivalent to capitalism.

So you have made history, Americans. You and your children have elected a Black man to the office of the president of the United States, the wounded giant of the world. The battle between John Wayne and Jane Fonda is over—and Fonda won. Eugene McCarthy and George McGovern must be very happy men. Jimmie Carter, too. And the Kennedys have at last gotten their Kennedy look-a-like. The self-righteous welfare statists in the suburbs can feel warm moments of satisfaction for having elected a Black person.

So, toast yourselves: 60s countercultural radicals, 80s yuppies and 90s bourgeois bohemians. Toast yourselves, Black America. Shout your glee Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Duke, Stanford, and Berkeley. You have elected not an individual who is qualified to be president, but a Black man who, like the pragmatist Franklin Roosevelt, promises to—Do Something! You now have someone who has picked up the baton of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society. But you have also foolishly traded your freedom and mine—what little there is left—for the chance to feel good.

There is nothing in me that can share your happy obliviousness.

Dr. Anne Wortham is author of “The Other Side of Racism: A Philosophical Study of Black Race Consciousness” which analyzes how race consciousness is transformed into political strategies and policy issues. She has published numerous articles on the implications of individual rights for civil rights policy, and is currently writing a book on theories of social and cultural marginality. Recently, she has published articles on the significance of multiculturalism and Afrocentricism in education, the politics of victimization and the social and political impact of political correctness. Shortly after an interview in 2004, she was awarded tenure.

Poland's 700 Year Bugler

poland_2
Modern Poland

POLAND stands as the Eternal Watchman busking for Western Civilization with regards to the Islamic invasion. We present this excerpt from Takuan Selvo in The Brussels Journal.

"Europe has another bugler, on its eastern flank. Poland. And were the soul and brains of the Western peoples less contaminated by their own elites, this is all the discussion about Islam and all the self-defense from Islam that the West would need. Every hour, on the hour, a bugler climbs to the steeple of the Church of St. Mary in Krakow, and plays the dirge. The dirge is cut off abruptly mid-note. This commemorates a mid-13th century bugler who saved Krakow from being overrun by Muslim Tatar hordes from the Asian steppes.

Standing high in the tower of the grand church, the bugler saw a large force of Tatar invaders approaching on horseback toward the royal city, and gave the alert to close the gates. In the middle, a Tatar arrow pierced his throat.

Once a day, at noon, this dirge, cut off as though by a Mohammedan’s arrow, is transmitted by Polish radio throughout the country. The radio transmission has been going on daily since 1927, but the dirge has been heard in Krakow daily since at least 1399, with only a half-century pause in the late 18th century. This is how a European people remembers the meaning of Islam.

G.K. Chesterton, who admired Poland as the staunch eastern bulwark of the Christian West, said that the “St. Mary’s dirge” was for him the call of a besieged civilization. And so it is.

The Poles are one European people who have remembered the meaning of Islam. All the others seem to have forgotten.

The American Citizen

Theodore Roosevelt
Theodore Roosevelt

THEODORE ROOSEVELT'S IDEAS on immigration, immigrants, and on being an effective American in 1907 were once considered sane, profitable, and good for both the country and the people. Some of us still think it is a brilliant sketch of American inspiration, and are astonished that some people have the audacity to disagree:

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language.. and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.

—Theodore Roosevelt, 1907

Every American citizen needs to devour this advice, and not reject it!

In an 1894 article on immigration, Roosevelt said, "We must Americanize in every way, in speech, in political ideas and principles, and in their way of looking at relations between church and state. We welcome the German and the Irishman who becomes an American. We have no use for the German or Irishman who remains such. He must revere only our flag, not only must it come first, but no other flag should even come second."

Resignation Of A President

Alan Caruba writes in the Canada Free Press that now is the time to actively call for the impeachment or resignation of the current POTUS. While we agree that the list of concerns about Barack Obama is long and severe, we also realize that in the current political climate, the kool-aid nectar still flows freely among true believers of the Obama Blitz, serving a spacious terrain littered with nervy blind followers who deny all evidence of corruption no matter how keen the odor.

As this 44th American President continues to dismantle the engines of capitalism and personal liberty, flooding the statist coffers with phony dollars, killing jobs, the economy, the future, the successes of the past, while consistently bad-mouthing on foreign soil the nation he is sworn to protect, insulting our allies and cozying up to our enemies, secure behind glaring but secret flaws and persnickety details of an incendiary public life the media helped him hide in plain sight like so many brightly painted eggs scattered along the campaign trail...

IERE'S A QUESTION I would pose to you. If the Supreme Court can act within days to approve the sale of Chrysler to Fiat, why can it not act to hear cases filed months ago regarding whether President Obama is a “natural born” citizen of the United States? Why have some lower courts refused to hear such cases citing that the parties bringing them, citizens under the rule of the Constitution, have no “standing” to do so?

The Supreme Court is famous for trying to dodge such cases. The likelihood of impeachment is zero because Democrats control Congress and only one President ever resigned from office and that was Richard M. Nixon. It took an excruciatingly long time to reach that point as anyone who lived through the Watergate scandal will tell you. The nation was shocked to learn that a President engaged in a criminal enterprise while in office.

What we have is a President who is running the government through an invisible network of people who are not answerable to the citizens of the nation, yet granted powers to determine the extent of the rights of those citizens including how much compensation they may receive.
The question of preserving and protecting the Constitution would be hard to prove except in hindsight, but by then it would be too late for the nation, ruined by excessive, unjustified taxation and borrowing that threatens the collapse of the economy.

I would argue that a President who appoints over twenty “czars” to supersede the powers of the secretaries of various federal departments; people who are apparently exempt from Congressional approval or oversight, and people who apparently do not feel the need to hold press conferences to explain what they are doing, is distinctly unconstitutional.

It will be argued that there have been various such “czars” in the past, mostly particularly “drug czars” whose purpose was to oversee and coordinate efforts to address the nation’s problems with illegal drugs, but the imposition of people to virtually replace members of the President’s cabinet is unprecedented. Cabinet officers must receive the approval of Congress, but these “czars” have not.

Even the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, has been reduced to a mere figurehead as various personal envoys of the President have been authorized to act for him regarding sensitive diplomatic affairs, answerable presumably only to him. What we have is a President who is running the government through an invisible network of people who are not answerable to the citizens of the nation, yet granted powers to determine the extent of the rights of those citizens including how much compensation they may receive.

This is a President who has said during a C-Span interview that the government is out of money, but who is pressing forward for legislation to impose trillions in taxes on all energy use, who advocates the borrowing of tens of billions by the nation for a proposed healthcare “reform”, and who has already signed a so-called stimulus bill of nearly 9,000 items representing $700 billion that he deemed “imperfect.”

Ie have all watched the President in action since January 20, 2009 and what we have seen and heard has been constant criticism of America that has been an affront to our great history and our defense of human rights. He has done this in one foreign nation after another.

Americans who are fearful of the havoc President Barack Obama has let loose on this nation need to flood Congress with the demand that he be removed from office for his failure to protect, preserve, and defend the Constitution.
A speech in Cairo to the worldwide Muslim community President Obama distorted the facts of American history and conflated the deliberate murder of six million European Jews in the last century with the suffering inflicted on so-called Palestinians by their fellow Arabs; the result of repeated wars on Israel. No such comparison can be made and is by definition obscene.

Within months, “tea parties”, citizen protests, occurred from coast to coast and others are being planned for July Fourth. Not since the advent of the Civil War under threat of secession has a President faced such widespread opposition after taking office.

In State after State, resolutions are being passed in opposition to his proposed legislation and policies. An organization of “Oath-Keepers”, members of the U.S. military, the reserves, the National Guard, peace officers, and veterans, has emerged to say they will not blindly “follow orders” issued by this President that are contrary to the oath to uphold the Constitution they have taken.

This is a President whose Department of Homeland Security has defined as “extremist” anyone who criticizes or disagrees with his policies.

Americans who are fearful of the havoc President Barack Obama has let loose on this nation need to flood Congress with the demand that he be removed from office for his failure to protect, preserve, and defend the Constitution. Indeed, to conclusively prove he was constitutionally qualified to run for the presidency.

The White House has to hear from Americans calling on the President to resign.

Read it all.

Frankly, one of the most discouraging coup d'etats that this wicked administration has committed has been the usurping of the census mechanisms, grabbing controls for the executive branch and its sorry powers of "estimating people" whereas we favor the traditional method of an aggressive head-count. As many have pointed out, this power grab is a deception geared to overlooking massive illegal aliens of various stripes while packing the numbers aimed at boosting beyond their natural numbers certain preferred groups clamoring for tax and other stealth special interest favors.

This is highly irregular for our nation of laws, and needs to be stopped, but probably won't. After all, these smarty pants leftists are convinced that the US Constitution is mere yellow parchment, a quaint curio of the past, a surreptitious political document that failed. A debatably unAmerican Barack Obama, in this viewpoint, has come to sever America from her sordid past. End of story. All praise to Mister Obama...

Irreversible? More like fish in a barrel.

Islamic Warfare Strategy

hamas04
In God We Perish

INSIDE THE MUSLIM MIND we perish. I think I may have posted this viral piece already, but it's a keeper. Frankly, I am fairly confident that we can all agree that this strategy rant was not composed by a Muslim at all. The educated Mohammedan would not post such a vicious document for obvious reasons, and the less scholastic Muslim would probably miss a few of these rather fetching clues as to how their stealth jihad will very soon consume the United States if we do not awaken to the fact that every word in this document is true, according to a wealth of vital sources which are not imaginary.

We can know for a fact that no radical chic meta-racist hate-filled left winger could have written these rather frightening words of warning, because these globalist imposters are in on the take, treason or no treason, or so they'd like to believe. Therefore, some radical chic mega-racist hate-filled right winger must have written it.

Buffoonery of the most egotistical sort tends to pass for political angst these days. Discourse of functional theory is a lost cause, displaced by stockpiled policy chants as the nation suffers through televised analytical illiteracy of unsustainable proportions, but let's read on, comfortable in our knowledge that Islam is not a race at all, but a pernicious totalitarian ideology not unlike nazism, despite its vulgar pretensions of religious wholesomeness writ large at the expense of all others, shall we?

TO THE INFIDELS OF THE WEST:

Constitution for the new Islamic Republic of EU and USA is under construction. We will fight the infidel to the death. Meanwhile American laws will protect us.

Democrats and Leftist will support us. UNO will legitimize us. CAIR will incubate us. ACLU will empower us. Western Universities will educate us. Mosques will shelter us. OPEC will finance us. Hollywood will love us. Koffi Annan will pass politically correct sympathetic statement for Jihadists. (Uh, that happened with the religious protection law that not Annan, but the current Islamic-dominated UN leadership allowed to sail through unscathed.)

Our children will immigrate from Pakistan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Indonesia and even from India to the US and to other Western countries. They will go to the West for education in full scholarships. America is paying and will continue to pay for our children’s educations and their upbringing in state funded Islamic schools.

We will use your welfare system. Our children will also send money home while they are preparing for Jihad.

We will take advantage of American kindness, gullibility, and compassion. When the time comes, we will stab them in the back. We will say one thing on camera and teach another thing to our children at home. We will give subliminal messages to our children to uphold Islam at any cost. Our children in America will always care more about Islamic Country’s interests than US interests.

We will teach our children Islamic supremacy from very early childhood. We will teach them not to compromise with the Infidel. Once we do that from the very early age our children won’t hesitate to be martyrs. We will take over Europe first and then the US will be our next target. We already have solid ground in the UK, Holland, Sweden, Spain, Italy, Germany, and now in the US.

Our children will marry caucasians in Europe and in America. We will mix with the fabric of Western society but still will remember Jihad when the time comes.

Who are we? We are the “sleeper cells”.

We will raise our children to be loyal to Islam and Mohammad only. Everything else is secondary. At the time of the real fight we will hold our own children as our armor. When American or Israeli troops shoot at us the world will be watching. Imagine…

Imagine the World news “Death of Muslim babies by infidels”. We know CNN, ABC, CBS are broadcasting live. Al-Jazeera will pour gasoline on the fire. The news will spread like wildfire. “Americans killed 6 babies, 10 babies”. “Jews killed two women.”

Keep your nukes in your curio cabinets. Keep your aircraft carrier or high-tech weaponry in the showcase. You can't use them against us because of your own higher moral standard. We will take advantage of your higher moral standard and use it against you. We won’t hesitate to use our children as suicide bombers against you.

Visualize the news flashes all over the world, …Muslim mother is sobbing, ….crying. ….Her babies are killed by Jews and Americans, the whole world is watching live. Hundreds of millions of Muslims all around the world are boiling. They will march through Europe. We will use our women to produce more babies who will in turn be used as armor/shield. Our babies are the gift from Allah for Jihad.

The West manufactures their tanks in factories. We will manufacture our military force by natural means, by producing more babies. That is the way it is cheaper.

You infidels at this site cannot defeat us. We are 1.2 billion. We will double again. Do you have enough bullets to kill us?

On camera we will always say, “Islam is the religion of Peace" and “Jihad is actually inner Jihad.” Moderate Muslims will say there is no link between Islam and terrorism and the West will believe it because the West is so gullible. Moderate Muslims all over the world will incubate Jihadist by their talk by defending Islam. Using the West’s Legal system we will assert our Sharia Laws, slowly but surely. We will increase in number. We will double again.

You will be impressed when you meet a moderate Muslim personally. As your next-door neighbor, coworker, student, teacher, engineer, professionals you may even like us. You will find us well mannered, polite, humble, that will make you say, “wow, Muslims are good and peaceful people”, But, we will stab you in your back when you are sleeping as we did on 911.

There will be more 911s in Europe and in America. We will say, “We do not support terrorism but America got what it deserved.”

Muslims, CAIR, ISNA, MPAC and other international Islamic Organization will unite. We will partner with Leftists, ACLU, with Koffi Annan, and the UN, and if we have too even with France. Fasten your seatbelt. The war of civilizations has just begun.

We will recite Quran and say Allah-Hu-Akbar before beheading infidels, as we have been doing. We will video tape those and send it to all the infidels to watch. They will surrender—ISLAM means surrender.

We will use your own values of kindness against you. You are destined to lose. Must be very depressing for you. Is it?

Allah-Hu-Akbar—as we say just before beheading people.

Let's see the effectiveness of Islamic warfare.

Muslims Vs. the West. THE RULES HAVE CHANGED. There is new game in town. Bill Clinton ordered 50 Tomahawks Cruise missiles costing $100,000,000 each, to destroy $50 mud houses that belonged to Osama's family. What stupidity? What a poor ROI (Return On Investment).

In return Osama's attack on the US. Cost: 19 martyrs and less than $500,000. Cost to the West: over 3,000 dead. At least $1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion) dollars economical loss in one year. This includes the ripple effect.

Osama's ROI with respect to: life = 3,000/19 = 158 fold. Dollar = $1 tr./500K = 2,000,000 fold This is modern warfare. The West will lose. Allah-Hu-Akbar. Islam will rule the world. There is nothing you can do. Even if the per capita GDP of the world drops to half of its present level as a consequence of Islamic laws in place all over the world. Islam will still rule the word. From your point of view we bring the world into the dark ages, so be it. But still Islam wins and the West loses. Are you sure you want to play this game?

Jihad, ..Jihad...Jeeehaaad...

You are destined to lose. Allah-hu-Akbar

Saudi Arabia's $100 billion investment over the last 3 decades on over 60 thousands Madrassas and schools all over the Islamic world is finally paying off. While the West was busy inventing medicine, increasing life expectancy, elevating human suffering, decoding the human gene to find a cure for Cancer, heart disease etc, launching space shuttles, inventing the internet, working on new laws/theory for human rights, developing better economical models for a more prosperous world, while ACLU was gaining control over common sense, while American ingenuity was benefiting the rest of the world, we Muslims were busy producing over 200 million out of 1.4 billion, Walking, Talking, Non-Thinking, West-Hating, Pre-Programmed, Suicidal, Parasitic, Terrorist Robots.You can't win. The Genie is out of the bottle.

We will use American’s kindness, fairness, compassion, freedom of speech and non-discriminatory policy against them. We will stab them in the back.

What are you going to do?

You are doomed.

Marking Up The Union Sundown With Bob Dylan

bob_dylan
Bob Dylan
JUST TO MAKE SURE YOU'VE UNDERSTOOD what I'm saying, here's another shot at conflating reality with a Bob Dylan lyric one redliner at a time. Yes, here again was the voice that always managed to spin the magic far beyond the usual malapropism of contemporary songwriter genius. No matter how we choose to slice the banana, it seems that Dylan with Infidels had grabbed a direct pipeline from GOD in shaking down the Barack Obama bug some twenty-six years before the facts themselves show up to kick us in the pants. Sure, he was observing the germane times in which he was living back then, just as we all were, but my oh my, how fast the bodies and antibodies are piling up these days.

America has lost its industrial base to China, Japan, South Korea and elsewhere. America is financially overextended, depleted energy reserves forcing us to funnel billions of dollars annually to our duplicitous enemies, millions of Americans are jobless and under-employed leaving the nation crowned with a future of unprecedented deficits and national debt far beyond the parameters of rational manageability—the socialists.

With the UAW now taking control of General Motors, and the brazen Obama administration's irresponsible manipulation of private interests leaving many of us muttering new words for nothing left to lose, Dylan's cracked ancient voice seems ever more pertinent today than it did to the general population that score and nine years ago when these simple but crafted lines first broke into our consciousness...

      Union Sundown off the Infidels LP

      Well, my shoes, they come from Singapore,
      My flashlight's from Taiwan,
      My tablecloth's from Malaysia,
      My belt buckle's from the Amazon.
      You know, this shirt I wear comes from the Philippines
      And the car I drive is a Chevrolet,
      It was put together down in Argentina
      By a guy makin' thirty cents a day.
      Well, it's sundown on the union
      And what's made in the U.S.A.
      Sure was a good idea
      'Til greed got in the way.

      Well, this silk dress is from Hong Kong
      And the pearls are from Japan.
      Well, the dog collar's from India
      And the flower pot's from Pakistan.
      All the furniture, it says "Made in Brazil"
      Where a woman, she slaved for sure
      Bringin' home thirty cents a day to a family of twelve,
      You know, that's a lot of money to her.
      Well, it's sundown on the union
      And what's made in the U.S.A.
      Sure was a good idea
      'Til greed got in the way.

      Well, you know, lots of people complainin' that there is no work.
      I say, "Why you say that for
      When nothin' you got is U.S.-made?"
      They don't make nothin' here no more,
      You know, capitalism is above the law.
      It say, "It don't count 'less it sells."
      When it costs too much to build it at home
      You just build it cheaper someplace else.
      Well, it's sundown on the union
      And what's made in the U.S.A.
      Sure was a good idea
      'Til greed got in the way.

      Well, the job that you used to have,
      They gave it to somebody down in El Salvador.
      The unions are big business, friend,
      And they're goin' out like a dinosaur.
      They used to grow food in Kansas
      Now they want to grow it on the moon and eat it raw.
      I can see the day coming when even your home garden
      Is gonna be against the law.
      Well, it's sundown on the union
      And what's made in the U.S.A.
      Sure was a good idea
      'Til greed got in the way.

      Democracy don't rule the world,
      You'd better get that in your head.
      This world is ruled by violence
      But I guess that's better left unsaid.
      From Broadway to the Milky Way,
      That's a lot of territory indeed
      And a man's gonna do what he has to do
      When he's got a hungry mouth to feed.
      Well, it's sundown on the union
      And what's made in the U.S.A.
      Sure was a good idea
      'Til greed got in the way.
