Joy Thieves - American Parasite

Songs of the Surplus Salaried Bourgeois Corporate Globalist New World Order (NWO)
ARE YOU BORED OF THE PEOPLE THAT YOU WANT TO DESTROY?
NOT DYING QUICK ENOUGH? TOO SICK TO EMPLOY?
THEY KEEP COMPLAINING AND YOU ROLL YOUR EYES,
AMERICAN ANTOINETTE, HERE TO DESPISE!

DO THEY KEEP INTERFERING WITH YOUR SHOPPING SPREES?
COUGHING UP BLOOD ON YOUR DESIGNER TEES?
FLAUNTING SQUALOR LIKE A BADGE OF HONOUR
AMERICAN PARASITES FEEDING UPON HER

FIND SOMETHING NEW
BEFORE WE COME TO FIND YOU
THEN YOU’RE FUCKED FOR LIFE
AMERICAN PARASITE

(THIS IS PARADISE THIS IS PARADISE, THIS IS PARADISE, PARASITE, PARASITE)

DO YOU WISH THEIR VOICES WERE A LITTLE MORE GRATEFUL?
YOU ALL GET TO LIVE IN THIS UTOPIAN STATE
AND IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT, YOU CAN CHANGE THE SCENE!
A STARVING, PENNILESS AMERICAN DREAM!

“WE’RE TRYING TO WORK BESIDE YOU,
THOUGH: WE CAN’T STAND THE SIGHT OF YOU,
FIND SOMETHING NEW INSTEAD!
THOUGH YOU CAN’T EVEN LEAVE YOUR HOSPITAL BED…
MAYBE YOU’RE JUST BONE IDLE,
YOU WHINE THAT YOU’RE SUICIDAL,
MAYBE IT’S JUST BAD LUCK
BUT WE SURE DON’T GIVE A FUCK…

FIND SOMETHING NEW!
BEFORE WE COME TO FIND YOU
THEN YOU’RE FUCKED FOR LIFE
AMERICAN PARASITE

ARE YOU POUTING AND UNDER APPRECIATED?
OVERTURES UNHEARD AND UNDERRATED?
WELL WE CAN’T JUST SIT AND GIVE IT OUT FOR FREE!
THAT WOULD MEAN THERE’S NOTHING LEFT FOR ME!

FIND SOMETHING NEW!
BEFORE WE COME TO FIND YOU
THEN YOU’RE FUCKED FOR LIFE
AMERICAN PARASITE

WE’RE TRYING TO WORK BESIDE YOU,
THOUGH: WE CAN’T STAND THE SIGHT OF YOU,
FIND SOMETHING NEW INSTEAD!
THOUGH YOU CAN’T EVEN LEAVE YOUR HOSPITAL BED…
MAYBE YOU’RE JUST BONE IDLE,
YOU WHINE THAT YOU’RE SUICIDAL,
MAYBE IT’S JUST BAD LUCK
BUT WE SURE DON’T GIVE A FUCK….

Keep it together
If you can keep it together
Make a good show of it

Another suburban family morning
Grandmother screaming at the wall
We have to shout above the din of our Rice Krispies
We can't hear anything at all
Mother chants her litany of boredom and frustration
But we know all her suicides are fake
Daddy only stares into the distance
There's only so much more that he can take
Many miles away
Something crawls from the slime
At the bottom of a dark Scottish lake

Another industrial ugly morning
The factory belches filth into the sky
He walks unhindered through the picket lines today
He doesn't think to wonder why
The secretaries pout and preen like
Cheap tarts in a red light street
But all he ever thinks to do is watch
And every single meeting with his so-called superior
Is a humiliating kick in the crotch
Many miles away
Something crawls to the surface
Of a dark Scottish loch

Another working day has ended
Only the rush hour hell to face
Packed like lemmings into shiny metal boxes
Contestants in a suicidal race
Daddy grips the wheel and stares alone into the distance
He knows that something somewhere has to break
He sees the family home now looming in his headlights
The pain upstairs that makes his eyeballs ache
Many miles away
There's a shadow on the door
Of a cottage on the shore
Of a dark Scottish lake
Many miles away, many miles away


- The Police, Synchronicity II, 1983

IMHO, the greatest song ever written

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

Smash all the vintage wines except the last one you drink for yourself.

Slaughter all the wagyu beef and burn it except for the one steak you take for yourself.

What is better? To enjoy life's finest pleasures or to make the envious know your power extends to deny them even a morsel?

And does not this make the wine and steak taste better?

Capitalism can supply me with wine and steak but this pales in comparison to denying others wine and steak. The last morsel must be mine!

Happy Pearl Harbor Day


Interesting to me my "deathbed" (sick) musings parallel all this. COVID-19 is killing me but I know I'm not going to die from it. I'm in a unique position where I currently don't need money (I could take a year or so to wipe out my stash) and maybe add ten more years to that by selling all of my parents properties... it's all a whirlwind of nothingness. I can do anything and I don't want to do anything.... Anything I can do has been done before....

Joe Conservative said...

I hear you. I'm on the edge of retiring, but only keep working to keep my wife well supplied in the cancer meds that keep it at bay. I could flip her to Medicaid, but my insurance covers the $12K per month without having to feed the "donut hole" out of savings.

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

Avoid the donut hole if you can.

Also avoid full Medicaid / Medicare nursing care if you can. You have to dissolve your property first, get rid of anything you'd leave as inheritance.

The government will always gets ya in the drive thru.

Joe Conservative said...

Yes... will be putting the house into a non-revocable living trust soon. I don't think they're allowed to hit my 401k's.

Joe Conservative said...

...of course, there's a five year period on the living trust clock that she has to stay off full Medicare or they can tap it.

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

That's what my parents did... Irrevocable family trust or lose it all...

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

Most of my parents property is tied up in real estate, some metals and stocks... It's all in the trust now.

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

Reading up on the Joy Thieves, there's a reason they seemed familiar to me... They're a rotating collective of members of quite a few industrial-electropunk bands I liked back in the day. My first shared linked to Ministry's TV 2 was dead on... It's the same singer :)

Gert said...

Beamish:

Glad you found your avatar back. We always knew it was you, of course...

Now go find that sanity that you lost under the settee...

-FJ said...

I think Trump stole it.

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

It took no small amount of cyber-archaeology to find the President Beamish avatar.

Sanity's always been a little overrated for me, and as a Szaszian I recognize the categorization of mental health to be more political than scientific. Who do you want to put away for their own good? Me?

As for Trump, he represents perhaps (and hopefully) the rock bottom of how far the Republican Party will go to discredit itself as a force for good in American politics that probably began with the TARP bailouts when Trump was still a racist Democrat.

-FJ said...

Still waiting for your Republican "White Knight", beamish? Sleeping Beauty's gonna be in for a LONG wait...

Gert said...

Who do you want to put away for their own good?

Very good!

Gert said...

Still waiting for your Republican "White Knight", beamish?

Yeah, about that. There's a teeensieweeensie difference between some Rep White Knight and a bumbling doofus like the OM, you know?

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

Not waiting for a white knight.

Just waiting for the water-carriers to admit they know and have known they're carting buckets of sewage around. Purge out the sewage-deniers that keep trying to gaslight that the last election was "stolen" from them.

Someone that maybe sounds like today's variant of Chris Christie without the welt from Donald Trump's tailbone on his nose.

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

Beyond a Never-Trumper. We need a "fuck you for ever being a Trumper"

Joe Conservative said...

At least the OM wasn't advertised to be anything more than the TV personae he always was and whom everyone loved to hate.

Joe Conservative said...

ps Christy is political toast outside of NJ.

Gert said...

Now, now, now Farmer, by the bitter end you were quite taken in by the OM, including his The Steal(TM) baloney.

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

Oh I know Chris Christie is a fraudulent shit weasel. He may have detached from Trump's anus before reaching full Giuliani level dreadlock, but he's still a shit-matted asshair.

My point is that Christie is at least politically savvy and self-aware to know that the carefully constructed media narrative that Donald Trump is still calling the shots in the Republican Party is the rocket fuel that keeps a Democrat, any Democrat, in the White House in 2024, just as it shits on any perceptable gains the Republicans want to make in Congress in 2022.

Republicans need a "Fuck Trump and his retarded supporters right in their quivering assholes" candidate in 2024.

They're not going to bother to try. And they will lose for it.

Gert said...

Beamish: you're not still in Rethuglians v. Dumbocrats mode, are you?

Think Duopoly. All against the same wall. 'Aim, fire, at ease!'

Blimey, we haven't had a party here like this since 1979!

Gert said...

I think Trump stole it.

Nah, it was that girl with her 'alternative facts': Kellyann Conway hid it between her tits and a patriotic looking bra! She was going to sell it on the Fleabays, because her parents couldn't afford a hyphen...

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

Oh no. I've never voted for a Democrat in my life, haven't voted for a Republican since 2008. The James Carville / Mary Matlin bipartisan porn has gotten way too dogfart since then.

I would gladly vote for the candidate that wants to put Jan. 6th insurrectionists and their co-conspirators in Congress to death.

Alas, America is too left-wing for self-defense.

Gert said...

Alas, America is too left-wing [...]

That always has any Uropean in stitches, of course. ROFLOL!

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

Europe never really has figured out what nationalism is.

Gert said...

Beamish:

Yeah, that's why we had Nazism. And prior to that centuries of Imperial blood baths. The soil here still stinks a bit for the rotten blood and bones in it...

Seriously.

Gert said...

And you know who is an arch-nationalist, right? The Orange Doofus. Go figure...

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

So you know America is way too left-wing to put down a socialist insurrection, since the last one in the 1860s. Comrade Trump's coup attempt lacked significant military support.

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

Trump was / is a populist, not a nationalist.

Gert said...

No, he is a populist nationalist. MAGA. Wars on China. On Iran. On alien Hispanics. On anything furren. All backed by his poop-ulist poop-licies.

Support from Pepe the Klown White supremacists (around the world).

More stars and stripes on an average Trump rally than swastikas on a modest Nuremberg rally.

'U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!'

Nothing further, Your Honour...

Gert said...

Condolences for the tragic loss of life in Kentucky. Terrible!

-FJ said...

Thanks, Gert. Still trying to figure out why people were working given all the advance knowledge of the coming winds.

Gert said...

The Gubmint is trying to kill off the working poor, that much is clear! ;-)

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

Seems counter-productive to exploit people who have nothing to exploit. Just leaves ugly socialists intimately sharing their rape fantasies in smaller and smaller circles.

Gert said...

'The poor are a gold mine' some politicologist once wrote.

Killing off your fount of gold is counter-productive but the 1% make mistakes too. And they can be very vindictive: see the Orange Moron(TM)...

Gert said...

Damned place looks like sn A-bomb's hit it. Wonder what Alex Jones has to say about that...

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

Depends on how much pot Alex Jones has smoked with Joe Rogan.

Gert said...

Yeah, 'im, Joe Rogan and Roger Stone sharing a giant spliff!

Jones: 'Fackin' chemtrails AGAIN!'

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

To his credit, about two-thirds of a Joe Rogan podcast with Alex Jones as guest is Rogan trying to calm Jones down to get him to be coherent. It's actually quite funny.

Gert said...

I quite like Joe Rogan. He was on Jimmy Dore, wasn't he? For which JD got predictibly shot at (yawn(TM)...)

Joe Conservative said...

TMI...
