Your Nation Turns Its Lonely Eyes to You

Paranoia strikes deep tonight. I don't even want to imagine what things will be like if...
It Doesn’t Take an Anchorman
to Know the Ship is Sinking

Democracy is nothing infinite
but something tangible like missing body
parts or Mr. Wilson out of work.
Still every season sees its reemergence.
Some day it won’t return. The station break
will stay for special bulletins—and God
becomes a talking head. November will
be outlawed, every tree required to swear
allegiance to a different kind of fall.
It happens here—a new reality
event for viewers. And commercial free!
I'm Greg Perry and I approve that message. Abraham Lincoln approves this one:
You can fool some of the people all of the time,
and all of the people some of the time,
but you can't fool ALL of the people ALL of the time.
Lastly Bob Dylan approved this one:
Half the people can be part right all of the time, an'
Some of the people can be all right part of the time,
But all the people can't be all right all of the time.
I think Abraham Lincoln said that.
"I'll let you be in my dream if I can be in yours."
I said that.
VOTE as if your dream depended on it.
