  1. With half the goddamned country living below the “poverty line”, Kristen’s story is the story of millions in the “greatest country on earth”. The oligarchs will keep fiddling until……….?

  2. Long-haired preachers come out every night,
    Try to tell you what’s wrong and what’s right;
    But when asked how ’bout something to eat
    They will answer in voices so sweet
    You will eat, bye and bye,
    In that glorious land above the sky;
    Work and pray, live on hay,
    You’ll get pie in the sky when you die

    And the Starvation Army, they play,
    And they sing and they clap and they pray,
    Till they get all your coin on the drum,
    Then they tell you when you’re on the bum
    Holy Rollers and Jumpers come out
    And they holler, they jump and they shout
    Give your money to Jesus, they say,
    He will cure all diseases today
    If you fight hard for children and wife-
    Try to get something good in this life-
    You’re a sinner and bad man, they tell,
    When you die you will sure go to hell.
    Workingmen of all countries, unite
    Side by side we for freedom will fight
    When the world and its wealth we have gained
    To the grafters we’ll sing this refrain
    Chorus (modified)
    You will eat, bye and bye,
    When you’ve learned how to cook and how to fry;
    Chop some wood, ’twill do you good
    Then you’ll eat in the sweet bye and bye
