Why I Am Listening to This: this past week I watched demagogues and mad men address the United Nations - ha, the United Nations, my ass - except or one, Benjamin Netanyahu, who asked the question, "Have you no shame?" The title, "N.W.O." stands for "New World Order" and was written as a ptotest against Bush Sr. I say to Minstry, screw you, I am taking your song and railing against the new world, one world order that Obama wants to see implemented, with himself as head. Anything is possible now. Zelaya says Israeli mercenaries are out to kill him with mind-altering gases and Obama pulls the visas of Honduran diplomats for ousting him. Qaddafi in 2002 took full credit for the bombing over Lockerbie, and the killer is released and the delegates sit there for 96 minutes to listen to him ramble. The media wants to make sacrifices of Giles and O'Keefe. Public school kids in New Jersey are taught songs to honor the "accomplishments" of a man who has been in office only 9 months. Unemployment benefits are extended while Michelle O jumps into a limo to travel two blocks for organic Tuscan kale.
Yup, it's a new world order and I am absconding with this song to be the soundtrack to my own anger. If Ministry doesn't like that, f**k them.
