Thursday, July 16, 2015 – The Invasion of Texas and Tom Lehrer is Alive and Well
I see where Jade Helm 15 – aka The Invasion of Bastrop – has begun. The concerned citizens, such as a former sheriff from Arizona (that tells us a lot) and his volunteers are “shadowing” the exercise – with their still concealed (until September 1) handguns. And Goobernor Abbott has ordered State Guard to monitor them and the rest of the goings on.
This is a military training exercise across multiple states. Military officials have said the topography in selected areas is ideal to replicate foreign combat zones. What foreign combat zone does Bastrop represent?
Meanwhile, The United States signed an agreement with Iran. In light of the two “events” I bring you once again, from 1965 and equally as relevant today – the genius of Tom Lehrer, from That Was The Year That Was with “Who’s Next?” Sing along and Just change “Alabama” and sing “ We’ll try to stay serene and calm when BASTROP COUNTY gets the bomb.
Who’s Next? By Tom Lehrer
First we got the bomb, and that was good, ‘Cause we love peace and motherhood.
Then Russia got the bomb, but that’s okay, ‘Cause the balance of power’s maintained that way. Who’s next?
France got the bomb, but don’t you grieve, ‘Cause they’re on our side (I believe). China got the bomb, but have no fears, They can’t wipe us out for at least five years. Who’s next?
Then Indonesia claimed that they Were gonna get one any day. South Africa wants two, that’s right: One for the black and one for the white. Who’s next?
Egypt’s gonna get one too, Just to use on you know who. So Israel’s getting tense. Wants one in self defense. “The Lord’s our shepherd,” says the psalm, But just in case, we better get a bomb. Who’s next?
Luxembourg is next to go, And (who knows?) maybe Monaco. We’ll try to stay serene and calm When Alabama gets the bomb. Who’s next? Who’s next? Who’s next? Who’s next?
