A Blast From the Past

MIKE & THE MECHANICS LYRICS

"Silent Running" 

Take the children and yourself
And hide out in the cellar
By now the fighting will be close at hand
Don't believe the church and state
And everything they tell you
Believe in me, I'm with the high command

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

There's a gun and ammunition
Just inside the doorway
Use it only in emergency
Better you should pray to God
The Father and the Spirit
Will guide you and protect from up here

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Swear allegiance to the flag
Whatever flag they offer
Never hint at what you really feel
Teach the children quietly
For some day sons and daughters
Will rise up and fight while we stood still

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Can you hear me running (can you hear me calling you?)
(Can you hear me) hear me calling you?
(Can you hear me running) hear me running babe?
(Can you hear me running) hear me running?
Calling you, calling you

Commander in Chief?

An amazing display of priorities.
n excellent
 
By all accounts, Harold was a bright child. He grew up in America. He went to school and had an excellent future ahead of him. 
 
Harold’s full life was cut short in a violent moment. While few people had ever heard of Harold before his death, many of us did afterwards. 
 
And in death, something very shocking happened. What was so shocking, especially when it is compared to the death of someone else recently in the news?
 
Harold was Major General Harold Greene, United States Army.
 
General Greene was violently killed on 5 August 2014 in Afghanistan by a Taliban terrorist. He was returned to America with full military honors. It has always been a tradition that the President attends the funeral of flag officers who are killed in the line of duty. 
 
Richard Nixon attended the funeral of a Major General killed in Vietnam and George W. Bush attended the funeral of Lieutenant General Timothy Maude, who was killed in the 9/11 attacks.
 
While Major General Greene was buried, where was Barack Obama? He was golfing.  Vice President Joe Biden wasn’t there either; nor was the Secretary of Defense .
Flags were not even lowered to half staff for 
one day!
 

Four days after Harold Greene gave his life for America, Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri. It is safe to say, Michael Brown was just an ordinary street thug.
 
In the minutes before his death, Brown committed a robbery at a local convenience store. According to other reports, Brown struck officer Darren Wilson and shattered his orbital bone. 
 
And what did Obama do? He sent a three-person delegation to Michael Brown’s funeral! 
 
Obama would not attend the funeral of the highest ranking military officer killed in the line of duty since 9/11, yet he sent a delegation to the funeral of a common, ordinary street thug. 
 
When Margaret Thatcher, one of America’s staunchest allies and Ronald Reagan’s partner in bringing down Soviet communism, died ... 
 
What did Obama do? He sent 
a small, low-level delegation to her funeral. The snub was not missed by the British.
 
When Chris Kyle, the most lethal American sniper in history was murdered, there was no expression of sympathy from the White House. 
 
But when Whitney Houston died from drug overdose, you guessed it:
 
Obama ordered all flags to be flown at half mast !
 
There was no White House delegation at Gen. Greene's funeral; no one to honor a true American hero. 

American heroes die and Obama goes to the golf course.
 
A thug dies and he gets a White House delegation.
 
No wonder honest-thinking Americans hold Obama in total contempt. For those who continue to support this dishonorable man, I ask: what can you be 
thinking?
