BLOW UP YOUR TV

The Pooses for Peace invite everyone to follow the advice of John Prine this week.

BLOW UP YOUR TV!


We are tired of watching the nonsense going on in Washington on the news. We are so tired of the propaganda. We don't need no stinking Teeeee Veeee. If we hear that chimp's voice one more time we may puke up all our ham and stinky goodness. If we see that scary woman from Alaska with the weird glasses and the beehive hair do one more time we may have to pull our hair out. And the old man with the lisp and droopy eye gives some of us the "runs".

This is not healthy for pooses or people.

So.... we decided to get unplugged.

Cancel your cable. Save some money. (You will need it to help pay for that $700billion-trillion-zillion bailout for the rich and greedy!)

Rent movies instead. Read books. Meditate. Listen to music. Take lots of naps. Chase birdie toys. Do shots of tequila. Do anything but don't watch TV! Maybe if we ignore them they will all go away!

Have a wonderful weekend. We will be unplugged all weekend waiting for Hurricane Kyle to hit New England.

Sing along with John Prine! ( feel free to substitute the words Buddha, Flying Spaghetti Monster, Bast, Allah, for the word Jesus!)

John Prine Spanish Pipe-dream

She was a level-headed dancer on the road to alcohol
And I was just a soldier on my way to Montreal
Well she pressed her chest against me
About the time the juke box broke
Yeah, she gave me a peck on the back of the neck
And these are the words she spoke

Chorus:
Blow up your T.V. throw away your paper
Go to the country, build you a home
Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches
Try an find Jesus on your own

Well, I sat there at the table and I acted real naive
For I knew that topless lady had something up her sleeve
Well, she danced around the bar room and she did the hoochy-coo
Yeah she sang her song all night long, tellin' me what to do

Repeat chorus:
Blow up your T.V. throw away your paper
Go to the country, build you a home
Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches
Try an find Jesus on your own

Well, I was young and hungry and about to leave that place
When just as I was leavin', well she looked me in the face
I said You must know the answer.
She said, No but I'll give it a try.
And to this very day we've been livin' our way

And here is the reason why
We blew up our T.V. threw away our paper
Went to the country, built us a home
Had a lot of children, fed 'em on peaches
They all found Jesus on their own

Sigh. It is rather sad and annoying... and the media don't help--lots of financial advisers around here were telling people to get their insured funds out of WAMU and so enough did so that WAMU collapsed. WTG chicken little... We're annoyed because WAMU's small business account was a great checking account--totally free (everyone else charges at least $10/month plus a minimum balance).

Taking bets on how long before Chase changes that... (6 to 12 months is our bet).

Maybe it is good to get unplugged!! Watching the Horror Channel can't be good for your tummies!!!!
I don't see anything wrong with naps.
Maybe when we wake up this will just be a great big nightmare !!
Well.we can hope :/

Yep we is watching an old movie that mum never saw 'Philadelphia'. She also has a book to read this weekend and more she went to the library today. But she won't blow up the TV so she can watch sports.

But she does shut out the politico stuff.

My mom shuts it all out, too. She thinks it's all pointless.

I'm for Chey.
