Quotes about Roosevelt

We must uphold the promise of Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, Carter, and Clinton and never allow the President and his Republican friends to threaten Social Security by putting it on the Wall Street trading block.

Hold Back

Hear the voice of experience
A word from the wise
Grab opportunity
While you're alive
'Cos if you follow the crowd
'Cos if you act like a coward
You'll end up yelling out loud

Hold back
You'll regret it someday
Choke on that
Don't let it pass you by
Hold back
You better seize the hour

You look in your history books
You delve in the past
Stalin and Roosevelt
Both took their chances
And George grasped the nettle

Talkin John Birch Paranoid Blues

Well, I was feelin sad and feelin blue,
I didnt know what in the world I was gonna do,
Them communists they wus comin around,
They wus in the air,
They wus on the ground.
They wouldnt gimme no peace. . .
So I run down most hurriedly
And joined up with the john birch society,
I got me a secret membership card
And started off a-walkin down the road.
Yee-hoo, Im a real john bircher now!
Look out you commies!
Now we all agree with hitlers views,
Although he killed six million jews.
It dont matter too much that he was a fascist,
At least you cant say he was a communist!
Thats to say like if you got a cold you take a shot of malaria.
Well, I wus lookin everywhere for them gol-darned reds.
I got up in the mornin n looked under my bed,
Looked in the sink, behind the door,

The Ballad Of Sally Rose

(Emmylouy Harris Paul Kennerley)
Her mama picked him up in south Minnesota
He promised her the world but they never got that far
For he was last seen in that '59 DeSota
When Sally was born in the black hills of Dakota
She was washed in the blood of the dying Sioux nation
Raised with a proud but a wandering heart
And she knew that her roots were in the old reservation
But she had stars in her eyes and graeter expectations
No rings on her fingers no bells on het toes
With bugs on her headlights
And runs in her hose
Through the valley of the shadow of Roosevelt's nose
Adios, South Dakota, adios Sally Rose
They've got a national monument carved out of stone
On the side of a mountain where her forefathers roamed
Playing cowboys and Indians right under the nose
Of Theodore Roosevelt and the sweet Sally Rose
So she left Rapid City in the blue moonlight hour
With her eye on the highway and her foot on the floor

Ive Done It Again

I was on the first ship to peru,
Charted all the courses like all sailors do,
First to cross the [? ] in [? ],
Oversea in wetbacks for good californian wine.
And Ive done it again, done it again, done it again,
And Ive done it again, done it again, done it again.
I was there when jan and liford sang,
First to feel the cold alaskan white man,
First to take a trip on lsd,
First to vote for roosevelt back in 33.
And Ive done it again, done it again, done it again,
And Ive done it again, done it again, done it again.
Yes Ive seen it, yes Ive seen it,
And if your feeling great I feel it.
And Ive done it again, done it again, done it again,
And Ive done it again, done it again, done it again.
And Ive done it again, done it again, done it again,
And Ive done it again, done it again, done it again.

They Dont Care About Us

Written and composed by michael jackson
Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, aggravation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Bang bang, shock dead
Everybodys gone mad
All I wanna say is that
They dont really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They dont really care about us
Beat me, hate me
You can never break me
Will me, thrill me
You can never kill me
Do me, sue me
Everybody do me
Kick me, strike me

The Return Of Sathington Willoughby

Fellow colleges, distinguished members of the press, ladies
And gentlemen:
I would like to take this opportunity to personally and humbly thank
Each and every one of you for joining us at this particular event.
It is my hope that we can utilize this meeting of the minds to
Successfully convey the essence of our platform to you, a grand and
Noble audience.
As I look out among the faces, I reflect, taking console in the words
Of franklin delano roosevelt who said, we have nothing to fear but
Fear itself.
Paranoia is a disease unto itself, and may I add, the person standing
Next to you, may not be who they appear to be, so take precaution.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste, this is true any a young person
Has fallen prey, to the substances that alter the perspective of any
Right thinking individual.
The problem with the youth today is, because of their inexperience
With the world, they cannot attempt to grasp the ideals, set forth by
Myself and those who preceded me.
But, as history has shown, they will come around, and embrace our
Philosophies and become model citizens in their own right, God bless
