Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Dedicated to John Boehner and the Rethuglicans in the House. Greedy, corrupt, paid-off scumbags determined to turn our DEMOCRACY into a corporate OLIGARCHY.

Day after day, on Capitol Hill,
The man with the orange tan: obstructing every bill
But nobody wants to vote for him,
We can see that he's just a fool,
And he never gives a straight answer,

All the fools on "the Hill",
See the money all around
Dollar signs in their heads,
while our ship runs aground.

Out there today, a protesting mob,
Outside, there's a thousand voices screaming "Where are the jobs???!!!"
But John Boehner never hears them,
or the sound they have tried to make,
and he never seems to notice,

But, the fools on "the Hill",
See the money all around
Dollar signs in their heads,
while our ship runs aground.

(Flute solo)

He's a Nazi and we don't like him,
we can see what he wants to do,
and he loves his wheel-and-dealings,

But the fools on "the Hill",
See the money all around
Dollar signs in their heads,
while our ship runs aground.

Oh....oh....oh....oh...., down and down and down and down.....

And we never listen to them,
we know that they're all fools
We don't like them....

The fools on "the Hill",
See the money all around,
Dollar signs in their heads,
while our ship runs aground.

Oh........., Down and down and down and down.....

Four years late and out of touch with reality... as usual.

The Nazis started with an unemployment rate and inflation much higher than ours, and put everyone in Germany to work in just a couple of years. Not only that, they provided jobs for all the folks who were out of work in Poland, France, Belgium, heck, most of Europe. Is that what you mean by calling Boehner a "Nazi".

Looks like my previous comment was removed. Anyone tell me why?

Jeff - Of course we disagree as usual. But this time, please listen...the solo in Fool On The Hill was a slide whistle. Trust me. ;D

It didn't seem possible that Pacholeks uninformed political ideology could be eclipsed. Congrats J in R,Va., you are now Amirights leading political hack. Even long gone Amiright Bush Basher, William Tong seems well-reasoned compared to your dreck.

Looks like my comment was restored. There was a lot more to the Third Reich than Panzer tanks and concentration camps. The Nazis provided universal health insurance, day care for working mothers, youth vocational training and recreation. There were annual fundraisers for the poor. The Nazis saw to it that every family had a radio (only one channel, but it was the only affordable radio at the time) and were on the way to providing everyone with a car. You could take a Mediterranean cruise or visit the fjords of Norway on a Nazi ocean liner. In fact, there was no aspect of life from farming to bird watching to stamp collecting, that didn't have a National Socialist Party agency in charge. The only thing they didn't provide for was for people who simply wanted to be left alone to dance to their own music or speak their own mind. Oh, wait a moment, they did have such places, see note above. The only time the word "Freiwilliger" (Volunteer) shows up in Nazi literature is the "Freiwilliger Arbeitsdienst" (Volunteer Labor Service) which every young man had to perform before being drafted into the army or "Volunteers" in the occupied lands who "enlisted" in the Waffen-SS.

Patrick - I can't resist it...I'm sorry in advance. Wasn't "Frei Williger" a German movie about a liitle boy and a whale? Thanks for indulging me. I've also noticed that people who like to throw the word Nazi around are (unlike you and me) woefully ignorant of the unspeakable evils of the Third Reich and the history of the period in general. ;D

"Frei Williger" would make a great movie. I can see the whale jumping out of the water and saluting with his fin.

Very good, Jeff, especially coming from the one-time Capitol of Traitors... and the home of the great Arthur Ashe. You might like my effort with the OS: http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/thebeatles256.shtml ... Patrick, it was Otto von Bismarck, 60 years before the Nazis, who gave Germany national health service. I'll bet you also believe that Hitler confiscated everybody's guns. (He actually kept the gun-control laws that were already in place.) But, hey, as long as he stopped the Commies. And the labor unions. Just like the Governor in Wisconsin, the most German (by ancestry, anyway) State in our nation, right? Not that I'm insinuating anything...

Michael - My neighbor to the north Cincinnati (and for that matter Saint Louis) has every bit as strong a German ancestory, heritage, and brewing tradition as Milwaukee. I'm kind of relieved that the Ohio River at Cincinnati is wider than most of the Rhine. ;D

Aside from a few fanatics, most of the Communists were easily assimilated into the Nazi party. The subtle nuances of political ideologies are for intellectual debates amongst academics. The important thing is to be on the winning side in any grab for power. You are correct about Bismarck. The gun control laws Hitler kept in place were originally intended to disarm the Freikorps (right wing paramilitary units of disgruntled WWI veterans) and the Communists. Hitler simply expanded the law to prohibit ownership of guns (and knives and truncheons) by Jews and other potential enemies. Ordinary Germans kept their guns and were not exceptionally restrained from acquiring new ones. Occupying arms making states such as Czechoslovakia, Poland, Belgium, and France simply gave everyone a wider selection of guns to choose from. This law, now aimed primarily at African Americans, was copied almost word for word in the US Gun Control Act of 1968. The senator who wrote much of the bill had been in Germany and took part in some of the N├╝rnberg court procedings. That was where he learned of the German gun laws. See Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership for all the details.

Anybody who thinks there are only "subtle nuances" between fascism and communism is also stupid enough to think there's no appreciable difference between communism and socialism, and between socialism and liberalism.
You said it, Pacholek - February 22, 2011 - Report this comment
MP, Richmond Jeff sees only "subtle (or no)differences" between Nazis and Boehner/Republicans. Therefore, you just called Jeff stupid. Thanks for unknowingly stating the obvious in a roundabout way. If you agree with Jeffs comparison, your last comment is highly hypocritical and naive.

Stalin: jailed political opponents. Genocide against Ukrainians, persons attached to private property. Government agencies control all private activity. Freedom of religion curtailed. Bearing arms limited to agents of the state. Made war against neighboring countries. Hitler: jailed political opponents. Genocide against Jews, Romany, mental "defectives", homosexuals. Private property conscripted to service of the state. Government and political agencies co-opted private charity, recreation, labor unions. Launched wars of conquest against neighboring countries. In both countries there was considerable infighting among rivals for power, with the losers sometimes ending up deported or dead. In any case, the loser is freedom and individual autonomy. Socialism: government takes from those who have or produce to give to those who do not, with a considerable portion of the proceeds going to the self-appointed elite who make the decisions. Those who prefer private property can be jailed for that stance, in some cases, even killed. This happens even in USA. Liberalism, self appointed elite regard themselves as the only ones fit to rule and attempt to micromanage the lives of "lesser" folk. The "lesser" people may or may not eventually come around to the realization that they are actually the ones who know how to do things and when it comes to crunch time, tell the elites where to shove it. We may be seeing the beginnings of this in the USA. It is a conflict that has existed since the beginning of the Republic, even before. Security code for this comment "FEW" as in the differences between Communism, Fascism, Socialism, Liberalism". See Jackson Browne "I have only one party, and that is "Freedom". or Jonathan Edwards "He can't even run his own life, I'll be damned if he'll run mine".

Dearest Jeffrey: Better get crackin' on those parodies if you plan on catching William Tong (over 1300 parodies) or Pacholek (heading towards 2000, though not all his are political). Your piddly amount since 6/2009 ain't exactly setting records. I'll continue to "read 'em and snort" (laughing not WITH you, but AT your political naivete).
