31. I was just thinking of Willie Nelson.

Like minds and all of that, malaise.

Here we are... AGAIN.

Seems to be a way of life with the Sh le Republicans running everything.

Old song, new words.

Sung to the tune of "On the Road Again"

"Off the Rails Again"
with profound apologies to: Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson

Off the rails again
I just can't wait to get to the polls again
The life I love is torn away from me and my friends
And I can't wait to get to the polls again
Off the rails again
Goin' places that I've never wanted
Seein' things that I never want to see again
And I can't wait to get to the polls again
Here we go, off the rails again
Like a band of Gypsies we get dragged down the highway
We're the best of friends
Insisting that the world start turnin' our way
And their way is off the rails again
I just can't wait to get to the polls again
The life I love is torn away from me and my friends
And I can't wait to get to the polls again, break free
And I can't wait to get to the polls again.

Well, you get the idea.
