I needed to rant here , sorry. I just feel that Washington is freezing social security into a welfare state existence.

I came to Nashville to learn and hope to dream again. That in being around artists, I could grow not stagnate. But like Washington, the Nashville scene is in gridlock of self interests.

The miracle I hope is to find here, is like the one that believed President Obama could change America for the better. But there are both part of the White Collar right side of the tracks that have forgotten the coal mines, and starvation of Country Music deep down lyrics.

It is like any founding father coming back to be President. They would never win the public support of both Republicans and Democrats.

These lyrics are imperfect, this poet is imperfect, but what runs America is a Obama nation that has forgotten its Blue Collar roots and those that served in Washington's Wars, where they graduated into the Vietnam Conflict that Washington perpetuates in making Veterans feel homeless without country and any political party. Screw you Republicans and Reagan Democrats, you have done a hostile takeover of all America, and I will never ever forevermore never again call myself a Democrat. I think that all Liberals, Blue Collars, unions, and workers get away from the Rupert Murdock billionair brother blues Apprentices clan.

Yes, Santa tell God there is no more God Bless Made in America Blue Collar Middle Class dreams for the Grinch's are playing an Enberniizor role of Scrooge.

I wonder if Ben Franklin with an image can get asylum in France, for what is in America is like an Egyptian dictatorship, with the people wanting to say. "Let the people go."

If Washington does not get its finances done in time, I say lets take all politician pensions and benefits away right away, then trash them as they have done to the rest of America in their Reagan wardrobes, where even blacks get whitewashed as White Collar Tigers.

I never thought that in the end that it would be my own country that would make me feel homeless, while taking care of billionaire Murdock's, who own political stables for their brand name of government.

I feel better, but tomorrow I will sleep all day in being broken down without any hope. Maybe I can find a real church that has no mortician politicians that can show me, the God outside of Washington politics.

Vietnam Social Security American Broken Down Dream Poem And Lyrics (2011)


People say seniors have money,

But they are living on social security

That has been frozen by Washington bureaucracy.


They are living the American broken down dream,

Where the music feels the welfare.


They have broke seniors into a million shattered pieces

Leaving and empty s-hell of drained bank accounts,

Where the drinks go down hard, in losing all hope.


I am living the American broken down dream,

Where the music feels the welfare.


God, I wish they could feel this Vietnam Vet hurt,

Where you die inside the American dream,

Being busted apart by elite politicians.

Who have taken all the money for their benefits,

Leaving our social security in graves,

Where one feels the American broken down dream,

Where you hear the survival taps

That rests in peace being torn into pieces

Of the American graduating

Into the Vietnam conflict aftermath welfare,

Feeling homeless again in Washington “Taps” promises.
