American Idiot

by Green Day

Don't wanna be an American idiot. Don't want a nation under the new mania. And can you hear the sound of hysteria? The subliminal mind fuck America.

Welcome to a new kind of tension. All across the alien nation. Everything isn't meant to be okay. Television dreams of tomorrow. We're not the ones who're meant to follow. For that's enough to argue.

Well maybe I'm the faggot America. I'm not a part of a redneck agenda. Now everybody do the propaganda. And sing along in the age of paranoia.

Welcome to a new kind of tension. All across the alien nation. Everything isn't meant to be okay. Television dreams of tomorrow. We're not the ones who're meant to follow. For that's enough to argue.

Don't wanna be an American idiot. One nation controlled by the media. Information age of hysteria. It's calling out to idiot America.

Welcome to a new kind of tension. All across the alien nation. Everything isn't meant to be okay. Television dreams of tomorrow. We're not the ones who're meant to follow. For that's enough to argue.

Hi, Ms. Liberty!!

My name is rustle and I blog at majority report.

I just want to support women who are politically involved. Course I do like Green Day enough, though I haven't heard their new record.

Plus, I'm an idiot, too, so... that's good.

The lyrics are quite piquant to the times and a worth while read.

America needs more women to engage our common dialog on politics and I hope you continue to do; perhaps even with an eye towards serving in office, which is where we REALLY need more enlightened thinking.

welp, see ya at majority report!!

buh bye.

This is my first and last visit to your site. Thank you for clarifying in my mind why the Founding Fathers never gave women the vote. Between you and "The View," I have come to believe the Islamic scripture: The Prophet said, "Isn't the witness of a woman equal to half that of a man?" The women said, "Yes." He said "This is because of the deficiency of a woman's mind."

Lone Ranger's comment was a joke, right?

American Idiot rules.

By no means do miss liberty and myself agree on just about anything, but seriously to say that she doesn't deserve to vote because of her opinion towards something is preposterous. If you don't like her opinion, offer an opposing viewpoint. Don't be a douche about it. Now as for the song. So what, who cares if Green Day feels this way. I can quote many artists who have opposing lyrics in their songs. So, I'm happy for Green Day that they feel this way, and I'm happy that they agree with Ms. Liberty. But it is totally irrelevant to anything important. I could not possibly care any less how some musican or actor feels about the political arena. They should just shut up and sing or act. That whole Michael Moore thing at the oscars a couple years ago pissed me off not because he is a liberal but becuase the viewers have no choice in their bombardment with his retarded propaganda. Say what you want about Limbaugh and Hannity and Oreily, but at least you have the choice of listening or not listening. The thing that pisses me off the most is when musicians and actors are doing a concert or getting an award, and they use this spotlight to spew their rhetoric. It is one of the most annoying things to me. For crying out loud. The Dixie Chicks went to England and badmouthed Bush. I'd like to see them do that in the middle of Texas.

I'm like Lizzy, I thought Lone Ranger was just being sarcastic, but then I went to his site...guess who he's drooling over? Ann Coulter...it's a shock, I know. What makes it even more funny is that, currently, he is quoting an article she wrote, where she states that white Americans never gave Indians smallpox infected blankets, this is basically an urban myth according to her. Lone Ranger completely buys it, and I think this says pretty much all we need to know about him (i.e., he's an intellectual coward). What Ann Coulter apparently didn't bother to find out, and what Lone Ranger failed to look up, is: the Library of Congress is filled with hundreds of letters from the 1800's where white military leaders discuss ways of wiping out the Indians, including the use of smallpox infected blankets. There's an enormous amount of documentation relating to this, and it's a little disturbing that people like Lone Ranger would blindly accept a lame argument like Coulters. Anyway, his weird comment above makes sense once you visit his site.

It's a site, by the way, that doesn't allow comments, which also says a lot about him.

You media pansies may squeal and may squirm,
But a fightin’ man knows that the way to confirm,
That some jihadist bastard truly is dead,
Is a brain-tappin’ round fired into his head.
To hell with some weenie with his journalist degree
Safe away from the combat, tryin’ to tell me,
I should check him for breathin,’ examine his eyes.
Nope, I’m punchin’ his ticket to Muj paradise.

To hell with you wimps from your Ivy League schools,
Sittin’ far from the war tellin’ me about rules
And preachin’ to me your wrong-headed contention
That I should observe the Geneva Convention,
Which doesn’t apply to a terrorist scum
So evil and cruel their own people run from,
Cold-blooded killers who love to behead,
Shove that mother’ Geneva, I’m leavin’ em dead.

You slick talkingheads may preach, preen, and prattle,
But you’re damn well not here in the thick of the battle.
It’s chaotic, confusin’ it all comes at you fast,
So it’s Muj checkin’ out because I’m going to last.
Yeah, I’ll last through this fight and send his rear away
To his fat ugly virgins while I’m still in play.
If you journalist weenies think that’s cold, cruel, and crass,
Then pucker up sweeties, kiss a fightin’ man’s ass.

And well we're basing stuff off of songs..................

Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray for Commie souls to reap

Stick my knife into his spine

Now that commie’s soul is mine

This is how I spend my days

Killing in an acid haze



And if to hell we all must go

Well breach assault then take control

Satan crying on his knees

Come on guys don’t kill me please

Well then head north to higher goals

To reclaim our long lost souls

Then we’ll know that we have won

Our job as airborne rangers done

This is a song taken from two seperate songs and mashed together. Compliments of maddog and zeke

Hiello there Ms Liberty, I happened on your site while searching for some info on wealth and found you had some interesting things to say. Your American Idiot was not relevant to my wealth quest but Interest me in that you have a great insight and food for thought for intelligent minds.
