I saw a man in the street today
Went up to say hey
Began telling me
Of a catastrophe

He started talking about a man who talks like a boy
Went into speaking about a daddy's boy
The taxes are so high
For him and people of his kind
I saw a ceo
In his brand new house
The tax cuts sure helped him out
Keep the money he made with his dirty hands
Take it all from the common man

They call him W.
I call him dumb
The call him W.
I say when he was young
His daddy was just warming the seat for him
He is the leader of our country
Yet he is nothing.

It is such a shame
That the greatest country in the land
Is in control of this man.
People must be biased to vote for a man so dumb.
Even when the opponent is a boring one.
And when it comes to important decisions.
He is more concerned about polls and reaction.
Than the death toll in that Iraq land.
Will it help me in the next election?
Is this man's only question

They call him W.
I call him dumb
The call him W.
I say when he was young
His daddy was just warming the seat for him
He is the leader of our country
Yet he is nothing.

And then when he selected Ashcroft
It was a mistake like no other
A point back with Powell
But has nothing right else.
He likes the big companies.
He''s their good pal.
But when it comes to the environment.
He says emphatically CUT IT DOWN.

They call him W.
I call him dumb
The call him W.
I say when he was young
His daddy was just warming the seat for him
He is the leader of our country
Yet he is nothing.

    General CommentYou are an absolute fucking idiot. Why can't people keep the money they worked hard for? I grew up dort poor and i have watched my parents work their asses off to give us a good life. And you're telling me that now that they are successful, that they shouldn't be allowed to keep the money they worked so hard for?? That just becaus other people won't work as hard that they should get my parents' money?? THAT is what i call ignorance my small-minded friend. You should really think about what you're saying when u sputter dumb shit like this.

    And about the environment thig, WHY IN THE FUCK SHOULD WE SAVE THE TREES AND KILL BABIES???? The environment if fine. there is NO threat of global warming, and the rainforrest's population of trees and animals is always growing. you should really do some research instead of just sucking your mama's tittie and soaking in every word daddy tells you.
    GO FUCK YOURSELF!

    And before you go calling me a right-wing extremist, I'm xXx, so don't even try it.

    General Commentwhat the fuck does that mean, tenserock? don't stereotype me. Do you not understand that people work hard for that money?? why do they not deserve the mone they earn? Anyone can be rich. All they have to do is work as hard as the higher ups did. And here's a concept: Where do people get jobs from? well, they get them from people who own a company. If the people that owne the company didn't make more money than the workers, then how would they pay them? If Owners didn't get rich, then where is the incentive to work harder than the average worker?

    See, communism is the idea you have. Where everyone is equal and nobody is richer than anyone else. Well, that doesn't work. wanna know why? Because there is no incentive to work hard. Why work hard if you never make more money?

    It is exacly what you are saying. you think that no one should be rich and drive "200,000$ cars". WHY NOT?
    NOW what's sensible?

    General Commentwhatver i respect your a opinion but there are some people that can work very hard and never make a lot of money they just dont have the advantages. You dont need to take away all of wealthy peoples money just a higher percentage because they earn more. They are still taking in more than the average joe after taxes they can survive. There is no reason a poor person and a billionaire should be taxed at the same rate thats crazy come on.

    General Commentoh and one other thing Dont tell me that all higher ups work hard because that is complete BS and you know it. There are a ton of wealthy people who have never worked hard in their life and their are a ton of people who do back breaking labor and will be strapped for cash their whole life. Let me give you an example: The president of our United States has never worked hard or earned anything in his life. He went to all the best schools daddy could buy and was only an Average student. He got a cushy job as a baseball owner and than as a Governor without any semblance of intelligence. In other words the only reason this man is president is because he was born into money and has a famous name THATS IT. He never worked hard, and he intellectually he only average (below average if you ask me). I would be willing to be there are a lot of much better canidates out there who are unknown who would be great leaders but just because this mans father was president he gets the chance too. I know youll reply and start yelling at me again but just think about it logically for a second. Certainly you make a good case that many people do work extrememly hard and get wealthy. I am not asking them to give all their money up just give a little more than the average Joe cuz they can afford it. They will still be able to have every advantage they earned and at the same time maybe helping someone get the life they earned. JUST THINK ABOUT IT

    General Commentk tenserock, i've considered it. and i have to admit that in some ways you are right. yes, i definently think that there are many people who could do a better job than Bush and his dad. BUT Gore was NOT one of them. If you ask me, Gore is a bigger idiot than Bush. ok, second, you cannot tell me that I will never be rich. ANYONE who works hard enough and wants it bad enough, will get what they're working for. yes, some people are born with more advantages and some with less. but that only means that they have to work a little harder. It is not our fault how nature works. Third, just because someone makes more money does not mean that they should pay more taxes. My parents started a small business around five years ago. I have watched my dad work 80 to 90 hour weeks ever since i can remember. Now that we are comfortable (notice I am NOT rich) we are up to our asses in taxes that we cannot afford. You cannot tell me that is fair. It only shows me that the government has screwed us over with the inflatable tax rates. wanna know a great fact? 90% oof the nations income tax is paid by less than the top 10% of the wealthy. Why should they fork the bill? Just because they worked harder than everyone else? If you're gonna nit-pick and choose the ones that didn't work as hard, then we should also waste our time finding the people on welfare who soak up our tax money when they don't need it. JUST THINK ABOUT THAT

    oh yeah, and we might have to sell our business, sell our house, and my dad will have to go back to his 90 hour work weeks. all because of extreme taxes. now tell me, why is that right?

    General Commentthank you. ok, here's what i'm thinking (as if it matters huh.) flat tax rate. i'm sure you know what that is. it's one flat percentage. see, if i make 100$ a week and the flat tax rate is 10%, they take ten dollars right? ok well, i fi make 10,000$ a week, the flat tax rate is still 10 percent, but i hafta give 1000 dollars. see, that would be almost fair. but as is, if i make more money, they take a higher percentage. like at minimum wage it's about 26%. and at around 22$ and hour it's about 36%. so not only are they taking more money from higher paid, they're taking a higher percentage. i dunno, i just wish there was something that could be done. and Bush is the closest i've seen to a president trying to help small business owners. that's why i took such offense.

    General CommentSee, i don't think anyone minds if someone works their asses off for most of their lives and ends up doing pretty well for themselves, I don't know why anyone would mind someone being able to afford cable and a new Chevy. But when someone's making 10-mill a year screwing workers, cheating on taxes and moving jobs to other countries, should he really be getting more of a tax break? that's money that could be going to schools, hiring competent police, etc. I'm not sayin Kerry's ideas are great (and Edward's ideas of globalisation are a bit screwed up) I'm just saying that i don't agree with W's policies on the economy. Maybe i'm just too idealistic, but that's a lot better than not being idealistic enough.

    And about your environmental comments, damn, how much Limbaugh are you listening too? I know that the whole situation's been exaggerated and stuff (even Nader's gotta admit that) but to say that the environment's fine and that the population of trees and animals is growing is completely misguided and ignorant.

    As for "WHY IN THE FUCK SHOULD WE SAVE THE TREES AND KILL BABIES???? " you completely lost me there. "Lets all join the Genocide For Geraniums movement!"
