    General CommentThis song is so powerful,doesnt hold back on whats going on with the Bush administration, he doesnt censor himself;
    "this government business is straight up sadistic."
    "the people flood the streets, take you down, one and all."
    He's angry and so are many others out there, the Katrina situation really makes one wonder where Bush's priorities lie concerning African Americans.
