We've Been Through Some Crappy Times Before - Austin Lounge Lizards

You say the last election didn’t turn out like you planned. You’re feeling blue and clueless, you just don’t understand. You’re sad, sulky, sullen, moping and morose, You’re woefully weak and weary, semi-comatose You stare at your computer screen devoid of any joy and hope, You’re so depressed, you can’t get dressed, You’re noose is up a rope Just remind yourself, when you can’t stand it any more That we’ve been through some crappy times before, We’ve been though some crappy times before Slavery, unbridled knavery and the civil war.

Don’t stop caring, stop despairing, get up off the floor, Because we’ve been through some crappy times before. Intolerable intolerance has swept across the land, The gospel thumping homophobes have got the upper hand. They are peeping though the windows and they are creeping through the door But we’ve been through some crappy times before. We’ve been through some crappy times before. McCarthyism, Prohibition, and the World Wars.

Were up a the creek, the boat is leaking, still we will reach the shore, But we’ve been through some crappy times before. Reassurances that everything is fine It’s been a while since we were a canary in this mine. When you think it’s really bad, it gets a little worse, But keep on looking forward, though we’re going in reverse. We shout out that the emperors aren’t wearing any clothes, He lies so much that you could hang Your laundry from his nose. The fox is in the hen house and the wolf is at the door, But we’ve been thought some Crappy Times before We have been thought crappy times before, Indiscretion, floods, Depression, Vietnam and more.

The sun has set but don’t forget another day is in store. Because we’ve been thought some crappy times before. Yes we’ve been though some crappy times before Yes, we’ve been though some Crappy times before.

Goes without saying. It's part and parcel of that whole "humanity" thing.

It's how we face the ordeal that matters.

I disagree, I think is a positive message, its been worse before, and there is always a better day coming.

That describes exactly how I feel almost every day but it's not because of the last election which I was actually happy about.

And contrary to the video, I'd gladly go back to the days of the middle of the Bush administration when the economy was booming and unemployment rate was less than five percent and where the national deficit could still be measured in mere billions of dollars than be where we are now and where we've been the last three years.

I would rather go back to the late days of the Clinton administration. But even so, I will be the first one to admin, Bush was not all that bad, and out of the GOP contenders Huckabee is my favorite, he is a gifted speaker, and while I may not like what he is saying, I like listening to him say it, and, when all is done, his arguments make some sense, unlike Mrs. Palin who's vapidness is only outweighed by her lack of critical thinking.

The other Republican I would love to see run is Chris Christie, I like him, he is a moderate, and a great speaker.
