Wow. More applicable now than then in the USA?

"We are amazed but not amused
By all the things you say that you'll do
Though much concerned but not involved
With decisions that are made by you
But we are sick and tired of hearing your song
Telling how you are gonna change right from wrong
'Cause if you really want to hear our views
You haven't done nothin'"

This gets an ultimate funky 10 in this office.  Politically charged stuff like this still needs discussion, sadly.  Until things change, but there's no sign of that anytime soon.

These lyrics were laid down for just this sort of rancor.  The feelings are the same now as then (perhaps even more scary now).

"Donald Trump’s executive order to close America's borders to refugees and immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries has been swiftly enforced. The order blocks to the US from citizens from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya for 90 days and as well as indefinitely suspending admission of Syrian refugees. . . . People holding so-called green cards, making them legal permanent US residents, are included in the executive action." - theguardian.com

It's not too cool to be ridiculed
But you brought this upon yourself
The world is tired of pacifiers
We want the truth and nothing else

Remarkably timely for the fall of 2016, when we're facing a choice at the ballot box between two corrupt, self-destructive Mussolini wanabees.

Words were had the following morning... {#Cheesygrin}   There wasn't a repeat performance that year.

Actually, these lyrics best apply to the current administration. Although promised, Nothing substantial has been done to improve the lot of those in the Ghetto. The rich have gotten richer and the markets are testing all time highs while race relations are worse than ever, the prisons are bursting at the seams and unemployment for those without education is sky high and worsening. 
If anything this song is/was an argument in favor of BERNIE SANDERS

This song can be used as either support of Mr. Trump, or to rip him another one. Depends. Ditto for all the others.

I was just a few years too young to be a hippie (two older sisters kind of were though), and haven't smoked pot in decades, but I am probably a bit left of Che or Ghandi. {#Wink}  However, I'm not the one posting that I'm "boycotting" a great artist for no apparently sound reason other than what's seems easy to surmise.
