    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Great topic!

    Can't choose between "Southampton Dock" (Roger Waters) and "Goodbye To A River (Don Henley)

    "The rains have come early”, they say “We're all gonna wash away”
    Well, that's all right with me
    If heaven's torrent can wash clean the arrogance that lies unseen
    In the damage done since we have gone where we ought not to be
    Goodbye to a river, goodbye to a river; so long

    Other - I had never known any of these songs existed before now, and won't listen to them now that I do.

    I don't really listen to songs for their political statements, but rather for enjoyment of their musical elements.

    "Minority Report"
    (feat. Ne-Yo)

    People was poor before the hurricane came
    But the down pour poured is like when Mary J. sang
    Every day it rains, so every day the pain
    But ignored them, and showed em the risk was to blame
    For life is a chain, cause and effected
    Niggas off the chain because they affected
    It's a dirty game so whatever is effective
    From weed to selling kane, gotta put that in effect
    Wouldn't you loot, if you didn't have the loot?
    Baby needed food and you stuck on the roof
    Helicopter swooped down just to get a scoop
    Through his telescopic lens but he didn't scoop you
    The next five days, no help ensued
    They called you a refugee because you seek refuge
    The commander-in-chief just flew by
    Did he stop? No, he had a couple seats
    Just proved jet blue he's not
    Jet flew by the spot
    What if he ran out of jet fuel and just dropped
    hu,That woulda been something to watch
    Helicopters doing fly-bys to take a couple of shots
    Couple of portraits then ignored 'em
    He'd be just another bush surrounded by a couple orchids
    Poor kids just 'cause they were poor kids
    Left 'em on they porches same old story in New Orleans
    Silly rappers, because we got a couple Porches
    MTV stopped by to film our fortresses
    We forget the unfortunate
    Sure I ponied up a mill, but I didn't give my time
    So in reality I didn't give a dime, or a damn
    I just put my monies in the hands of the same people that left my people stranded

    Nothin' but a bandit
    Left them folks abandoned
    Damn, that money that we gave was just a band-aid
    Can't say we better off than we was before
    In synopsis this is my minority report
    Can't say we better off than we was before
    In synopsis this is my minority report

    [Verse 2 - Ne-Yo]
    So many times I'm, covering my eyes
    Peeking through my fingers
    Tryin' to hide my, frustration at the way that we treat
    (Seems like we don't even care)
    Turn on the TV, seein' the pain
    Sayin' such a shame
    Then tryin' to go on with my life
    Of that, I too, am guilty
    (Seems like we don't even care)
    So we send a lil' money, tell 'em it's alright
    To be able to sleep at night
    You will pay that price
    While some of these folks' lost their whole life
    (Seems like we don't even care)
    Now it wasn't on the nightly news no more
    Suddenly it didn't matter to you no more
    In the end almost nothing changed
    What the hell, what was that for?
    (Seems like we don't even care)

    These were my favorite lines too. He doesn't just blame the Government, but also himself.

    Chicago - CSN
    Ohio - CSN&Y
    For What It's Worth - Buffalo Springfield
    Megalomaniac - Incubus

    Though I don't agree with the sentiments in them, I like these songs.
