When "God Bless America"by Irving Berlin was topping the charts, Woody Gutherie had “had it” with Americans being fed the message “don’t worry about anything” through songs and pop tunes. "This World Is Not My Home” and "Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams, and Dream Your Troubles Away" troubled him, too. Woody didn’t think it was right to tell people not to worry, that God was in the driver's seat.
I’m not in a position to get into Woody’s religious beliefs, but I think it’s safe to say he would joint todays' Occupy Wall Street movement. He and Sarah Palin would have differences of opinion. Michelle Bachmann might say he was anti-America. Newt would tell him to get a bath and a job.
A sign was painted, said, 'Private Property' But on the back side it didn't say nothing God blessed America for me
Everyone reading this is part of the 99%. Well, almost everyone. The one percent that isn't? Say "Hi" to Bristol, or Willow, or Sarah - you know one of them is on duty reading anti-Palin blogs even today. My message to the 1%:
"This land was made for you AND ME."
