Mandate My Ass, Omnicron and anagram of Moronic_ with an n left over. someone always came to save America at the last moment – especially in ” B” movies

Well, the first thing I want to say is: Mandate my ass!

GIL SCOTT-HERON – B MOVIE

Well, the first thing I want to say is: Mandate my ass!
Because it seems as though we’ve been convinced that 26% of the registered voters, not even 26% of the American people, but 26% of the registered voters form a mandate or a landslide
21% voted for Skippy and 3, 4% voted for somebody else who might have been running
But, oh yeah, I remember
In this year that we have now declared the year from Shogun to Reagan, I remember what I said about Reagan, I meant it
Acted like an actor
Hollyweird
Acted like a liberal
Acted like General Franco when he acted like governor of California, then he acted like a Republican
Then he acted like somebody was going to vote for him for president
And now we act like 26% of the registered voters is actually a mandate
We’re all actors in this I suppose
What has happened is that in the last 20 years, America has changed from a producer to a consumer
And all consumers know that when the producer names the tune, the consumer has got to dance
That’s the way it is
We used to be a producer – very inflexible at that, and now we are consumers and, finding it difficult to understand
Natural resources and minerals will change your world
The Arabs used to be in the 3rd World
They have bought the 2nd World and put a firm down payment on the 1st one
Controlling your resources we’ll control your world
This country has been surprised by the way the world looks now
They do not know if they want to be Matt Dillon or Bob Dylan
They do not know if they want to be diplomats or continue the same policy – of nuclear nightmare diplomacy
John Foster Dulles ain’t nothing but the name of an airport now
The idea concerns the fact that this country wants nostalgia
They want to go back as far as they can – even if it’s only as far as last week
Not to face now or tomorrow, but to face backwards
And yesterday was the day of our cinema heroes riding to the rescue at the last possible moment
The day of the man in the white hat or the man on the white horse – or the man who always came to save America at the last moment – someone always came to save America at the last moment – especially in ”
B” movies
And when America found itself having a hard time facing the future, they looked for people like John Wayne
But since John Wayne was no longer available, they settled for Ronald Reagan and it has placed us in a situation that we can only look at -like a ”
B “movie
Come with us back to those inglorious days when heroes weren’t zeros
Before fair was square
When the cavalry came straight away and all-American men were like Hemingway to the days of the wondrous ”
B” movie
The producer underwritten by all the millionaires necessary will be Casper ”
The Defensive” Weinberger – no more animated choice is available
The director will be Attila the Haig, running around frantically declaring himself in control and in charge
The ultimate realization of the inmates taking over at the asylum
The screenplay will be adapted from the book called ”
Voodoo Economics” by George ”
Papa Doc” Bush
Music by the ”
Village People”the very military ”
Macho Man.”
Company !!! ”
Macho, macho man!”
Two-three-four. ”
He likes to be
Well, you get the point.”
Huuut!
Your left!
Your left!
Your left, right, left, right, left, right …! ”
A theme song for saber-rallying and selling wars door-to-door
Remember, we’re looking for the closest thing we can find to John Wayne
Clichés abound like kangaroos – courtesy of some spaced out Marlin Perkins, a Reagan contemporary
Clichés like, “itchy trigger finger” and “tall in the saddle” and “riding off or on into the sunset.” Clichés like, ”
Get off of my planet at sundown!” More so than clichés like, “he died with his boots on.” Marine tough the man is
Bogart tough the man is
Cagney tough the man is
Hollywood tough the man is
Cheap steak tough
And Bonzo’s substantial
The ultimate in synthetic selling: A Madison Avenue masterpiece – a miracle – a cotton-candy politician … Presto!
Macho!
Macho, macho man! ”
Put your orders in America
And quick as Kodak your leaders duplicate with the accent being on the dupes – cause all of a sudden we have fallen prey to selective amnesia – remembering what we want to remember and forgetting what we choose to forget
All of a sudden , the man who called for a blood bath on our college campuses is supposed to be Dudley ”
God-damn” Do-Right?
You go give them liberals hell Ronnie. “That was the mandate to the new Captain Bligh on the new ship of fools
It was doubtlessly based on his chameleon performance of the past: as a Liberal Democrat
As the head of the Studio Actor’s Guild, when other celluloid saviors were cringing in terror from Mc
Carthy, Ron stood tall
It goes all the way back from Hollywood to hillbilly
From Liberal to libelous, from ”
Bonzo” to Birch idol, born again
Civil rights, women’s rights, gay rights: .. .it’s all wrong
Call in the cavalry to disrupt this perception of freedom gone wild
God damn it, first one wants freedom, then the whole damn world wants freedom
Nostalgia, that’s what we want …: the good ol ‘days, when we gave’em hell
When the buck stopped somewhere and you could still buy something with it
To a time when movies were in black and white, and so was everything else
Even if we go back to the campaign trail, before six-gun Ron shot off his face and developed hoof-in-mouth
Before the free press went down before full-court press, and were reluctant to review the menu because they knew the only thing available was
Crow
Lon Chaney, our man of a thousand faces: no match for Ron
Doug Henning does the make-up; special effects from Grecian Formula 16 and Crazy Glue; transportation furnished by the David Rockefeller of Remote Control Company
Their slogan is, ”
Why wait for 1984?
You can panic now
And avoid the rush.”
So much for the good news …
As Wall Street goes, so goes the nation
And here’s a look at the closing numbers: racism’s up, human rights are down, peace is shaky, war items are hot
The House claims all ties
Jobs are down, money is scarce, and common sense is at an all-time low on heavy trading
Movies were looking better than ever, and now no one is looking, because we’re starring in a ”
B” movie
And we would rather had
John Wayne
We would rather had
John Wayne
You do not need to be in no hurry
You ain’t never really got to worry
And you do not need to check on how you feel
Just keep repeating that none of this is real
And if you’re sensing, that something’s wrong
Well just remember, that it will not be too long
before the director cuts the scene
Yea. ”
This ain’t really your life
Ain’t really your life
Ain’t really ain’t nothing but a movie. ”

The Revolution Will not be televised.
