This one is dedicated to you JAPOV LOL.

I’ve long wondered who these folks are and how you join. It sounds like fun.

Any comments and suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

(May 10th - added the lyrics below, as Martin mentioned he only caught about 90%. The delivery is rather fast.)


I WANT TO BE A MEMBER OF THE LIBERAL ELITE

I want to be a member of the liberal elite
Will somebody tell me where they meet?
I bet there’s always something good to eat
When the liberal elite meet

They wouldn’t let me into the NRA
When I said all them dead kids seemed a high price to pay
So I wouldn’t have to wait a whole day
To buy another gun

Oh the liberal elite, the liberal elite
I want to be that guy
Tuned to NPR in his hybrid car
And who can really rock a bow tie

Watching Fox news, me and my dad
Shouting at the screen and getting real mad
But the doctor says our blood pressure’s bad
And we need to watch something else

Now we chuckle at Colbert and that Seth Myers
Is funny as heck, and it transpires
Those folks at Fox – their pants are on fire
And the smoke is bad for your health

Oh the liberal elite, the liberal elite
I want to be that guy
Who removes his glasses, exuding class as
He discusses the issues of the day

I want to know merlott from cabernett
Sauvignon and have an accent that’ll get
Me into the smart intellectual set
Where I belong

To cultivate an air that’s haughty and aloof
To see George Soros’s cloven hoof
Make new friends like reason and truth
See what admitting I’m wrong
Feels like

Oh the liberal elite, the liberal elite
I want to be that guy
Who makes it to the end of the opera and pretends
He wasn’t praying for them all to die

But who are these smarty pants, do they exist outside the rants
Of Limbaugh and Hannity, an invention of insanity?
Applied to those who like to think by those who don’t
By those who like to hate to those who won’t
I’ve fin’lly learned to say merlot and cabernet
Wave my glasses in that intellectual way
So to find they don’t exist would be a most unwelcome twist
Please tell me where to find them, I really must insist

I just want to be a member of the liberal elite
Won’t somebody tell me where they meet?
I bet there’s always something good to eat
When the liberal elite meet

Oh the liberal elite, the liberal elite
I want to be that guy
At the end of the song, who was kidding all along
Unless I’m very badly wrong, I already belong
To the liberal elite

It’s only me really

Thanks Tom. Beau and I listened to your song and enjoyed it. He asked me why I can’t write stuff like that LOL.

Hi Martin. Glad you enjoyed it. I think maybe I need to turn down the sax a bit to make it easier to make out the words. Would you agree?

Anyway, I edited the original post to include the lyrics.

Wouldn’t make it easier for me. Would not fix my limited English skills ...

I can’t open that, Tony because I’m not on Twitter. We liberal elite chaps consider anything Trump has figured out how to use to be beneath us. :)

What am I missing?

Hold on - it opened on my phone. I kind of wish it hadn’t LOL. Not because of what you write - I always respect that - but your retweets! It looks like you need to follow the example of the guy in the song and chill out for the sake of your blood pressure :)

Breitbart? Nonsense about Nancy Pelosi saying “Building a wall will violate the rights of millions of illegals?” Planned Parenthood spending $30 million on the mid-term elections? “mainstream media” defending MS13?... Those things don’t even pass the initial sniff test, never mind fact-checking. It scares me that intelligent people are so easily tricked and manipulated by the anger merchants into spreading lies and misrepresentations just to further stoke the blind fury that seems to be the guiding principle of what used to be “conservatism.”

The world has never needed us liberal elite folks more than now. :)

Well, I don’t watch outright liars like Fox, Breitbart, etc. I sometimes check CNN, fully aware of the fact that those folks don’t like Trump. In a way, I can’t blame them, since he has spent most of his administration insulting them. They don’t lie, but they need him to keep lying so that they can maintain their ratings by feigning outrage at the fact that he’s a liar LOL.

For real news, I tend to go to Reuters, maybe the BBC and NPR.

A rule of thumb - anyone Trump calls fake news is probably telling the truth :)

WOW….. Where can I get a pair of those “filter glasses”? Do they take batteries? Where do you hide the antenna?

It’s easy, Tony. You just clean a regular old pair of glasses, so that you can see clearly.

Seriously, are you saying the folks at Reuters are liars? They are much too boring for that. What worries me is that almost everything on your twitter page that you didn’t write yourself is demonstrably false, and yet millions of people are retweeting and lapping this kind of stuff up because it confirms what they want to believe.

Take this one, just as an example.

“Building a Wall will violate the rights of millions of illegals.” -Nancy Pelosi
Yes, she actually said that.

Whoever started that meme, quite possibly in Russia, knew very well that, no, she actually never said that, but they sent it spinning out into the twittersphere as part of their effort to inflame passions and increase the divisions in this country. People who retweet it are unknowingly acting as their pawns. There are other memes on there that possibly have the same origins and intent. They direct it at both sides, although far more successfully at those on the right. This is the original definition of fake news. Deliberate falsehoods propagated to achieve a particular social or political end. Trump turned one of the things that helped propel him to victory on its head and redefined it as any news that doesn’t make him look good.

By the way, I don’t like Nancy Pelosi, but that’s not the point. I refuse to let slimeballs, foreign or domestic, manipulate me into spreading their lies and furthering their agenda.

A whole bunch of Nancy Pelosi quotes? Who needs that?

I’ve never really understood why the right demonizes her so much. She’s not effective enough to have ever actually done anything that really matters.

But enough. This all started with a song, and we’ve somehow lost sight of the goal of boosting my self-esteem by telling me how brilliant it is and what a genius I am for having written it. That’s what everyone comes here for, isn’t it? LOL.
