War Is Fun by More Jim Guittard

Go to Iraq, that’s where the money’s at.
Be about that – Do it stat.
You know that’s where you wanna be.

They’ve got games and fun over there; you just wait and see.
It’s like a carnival fare.
Do it, I dare.

You’ll be earning money hand over fist.
Just go ahead and enlist.
Go by faith, don’t worry about all the guns.
Don’t worry about all of the guns.

Chorus

War is fun in the desert.
They’ve got a party going on over there
In the desert.
War is fun in the desert.
So get on over there.

Count your money day by day.
Store it up and don’t forget to pray.
You’re doing good conquering all the land.
And you’re making many a grand.

Keep firing on all of the people.
They’re only poor but you’ve got the power.

Go to Iraq, that’s where the money’s at.
Be about that – do it stat.
You know that’s where you wanna be.
It’s fun there you know.

Chorus

War is fun in the desert.
There’s a party going on over there
Shoot everything that moves in the desert.
and don’t forget to get those people praying at the Mosque.

War is hell and it’s stupid.
Why are we there after ten whole years?

Enough is enough.
Get out of Iraq.
Enough is enough.
Get out of Iraq. Peace Corps.

Obama got his Nobel Peace Prize
and what has he done about it?
Wars are going on forever.
He said he would get out of Iraq
and Afghanistan, and Pakistan and all the other “Stans”.

Chorus

War is fun in the desert.
There’s a big party going on over there
In the desert.
Shoot everything that moves in the desert.
You are getting a lot of money in the desert.
It’s all worth it. You now it’s all worth it, in the desert.

Can’t make any money doing good.
All you can make money is from killing people in the desert.
That’s where it’s at.

Here’s my latest song I wrote and recorded last night. Enjoy!

World’s Angriest Hippie

You’re really a bit mad
You’re not a fad.
Not even bad.
Maybe just sad.

You keep us in line.
And doing fine.
We’re all mad too.
We’re all a little bit blue.

Chorus

The world’s angriest hippie
Turning all our heads around.
Pushing all the buttons.

Instrumental break

Chorus

The world’s angriest hippie
Turning all our heads around.
Pushing all the buttons.

You’re getting Understood.
It must feel good.
You’re music is the weapon.
Falling down from the internet zeppelin.

Keep your ideas flowing.
Your planted seeds are growin
The truth is your friend.
And it’s blowing in the wind.

Chorus

The world’s angriest hippie
Turning all our heads around.
Pushing all the buttons.

You’re just a bit mad
And not a fad
We’re sad.

Greetings my fellow peace haters.

I come today to accept my Nobel Peace Prize. It is an honor to receive such an award. It is a funny day. I fooled you guys. I’m laughing my head off now.

Afghanistan, get ready for our troops. Get out the heroin. We’re gonna have a party like there ain’t no tomorrow. Dig it! Word.

And for you haters, who didn’t vote me in, you’re gonna have your rights taken from you. I got some other “Peace” projects in the works.

Let me tell you. You guys know about the “Patriot Act”? We’re gonna rev that thing up a notch. Dalai Lama, Martin Luther King, Abraham Lincoln, Ghandi, and Moses, you all got nothing on me. You be hatin’ on me and I don’t like you guys talkin’ trash about my reputation. Big deal. I hung out with some thugs in Chicago. That’s where I get my ideas. So this prize goes to all those thugs that supported me in the past.

You ask ,”Where do we go from here?” I go up to the top. We’re gonna create a welfare state. In my opinion, this will bring “peace”. What a better way to demobilize and demoralize the American people. It’s a psychological game that I am winning at. I’ll get you where it counts: the brain. Now you will think that government is the only source for help.

This is where I rise up. Oh my gosh. The power that I get. You guys get smashed and I rise.

Dig it! I’m on my game, American people. The check’s in the mail.

You may have objections about me and this peace prize. Don’t worry, I’m on your side. “Yes We Can! Yes We Can!” You remember? I’m so up there.

Al Gore and I are making plans to control the world. You guys are incapable of having any sort of feelings. Keep playing your games and watching Oprah.

Take your damn pills! We got ya! Oh, one other thing. Take you swine flu shot.

Long live the Republic! Peace out, America!

Things To Consider:

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

Thomas Jefferson

“The Framers [of the Constitution] knew that free speech is the friend of change and revolution. But they also knew that it is always the deadliest enemy of tyranny.”

Hugo Black

“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to = remain silent.”

Thomas Jefferson

“The offspring of riches: Pride, vanity, ostentation, arrogance, tyranny”

Mark Twain

“Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

Ben Franklin

A month back maybe, I was eating at a little restaurant outside and a late 50s overweight man kept saying Amerikanetz (American in Bulgarian) and pointing and carrying on.  After much uproar, he finally came over and just sat with me and was drinking Rakia and he bought me a beer.  He seemed a bit angry and cursing under his breathe.  I had heard the words before by kids at the Black Sea.

I sat there and gave the guy the benefit of the doubt.  Eventually, he got on the subject of Iraq.  And in my broken Bulgarian I tried to say that I wanted peace and didn’t like conflicts and that I was there in Bulgaria and not Iraq.  And that yes America does have problems.  It was a strange encounter.  He kept toasting me but it felt like he didn’t like me or Americans.  He kept saying this word that sounded like “Боклук”.  I was quite curious so I took out my dictionary and searched for a word sounding like “Боклук” but I couldn’t find it.

To ease his mind, I started to talk about the Beatles and Bob Dylan and how they were very much for peace back in the day.  We left the restaurant and as we were walking he said that his life was the Beatles.  As we walked through the streets it felt like I was in a parade and the object of attention.  The man asked old babas (grandmas) sitting on outside benches, “Do you know the Beatles and Bob Dylan?”  And he said this guy is American.  I heard the old ladies say “Beatles” and “Bob Dylan.”  Very weird. 

Two days ago, I was at another restaurant and I saw him again.  I was across the room.  When I saw him come in I was like “oh no, not again.”  He motioned at me and I hesitated to go over but he kept motioning.  So I went over and sat with him again. I quickly noticed that the guy had the same attitude and still muttered “Боклук.”

A few minutes into round two, some of the restaurant staff began laughing.  I wasn’t embarrassed. I really just wanted the guy to leave.  I didn’t feel threatened.  He said it was his birthday.  And I finally heard him say тръгвам.  So he was leaving.  I was so curious about this word he kept saying, “Боклук.”

So I texted a Bulgarian and Боклук means “trash” or “garbage.”  So I think that I will avoid this guy if I see him again.  I don’t know if he was calling me trash or America or what.  He did say Hitler at one point.  Doesn’t seem like a pleasant kinda guy.  But anyway, “What’s his deal?”  I’m like the most peaceful non threatening guy around. 

The highlight of our friendly conversation was when he said, “Ti si pich.”  Meaning: you are a dude.  And I told him that in English and so the guy kept saying in two syllables “duduh.” And not just dude.  I still laugh about this drunk guy trying to say “dude” but saying “duduh.”

It is interesting that this guy said his life was the Beatles. I can only hope that others would follow suit. There is too much chalga influence here and not enough influence with substance.

I did find that there are a few Beatles fans here.
