Advocating on Behalf of the American Military and Defense on the War on Terror

DeVore vs. Henley - Round 3

http://chuckdevore.com/blog.asp?artid=24

Rocker Don Henley’s legal threats have shut down our rough cut April Fool’s music video Obama lampoon based on “The Boys of Summer” on both YouTube and on Orange County’s alternative newspaper, the O.C. Weekly.  We’re responding with a counter-claim, asserting our First Amendment right to political free speech in parody based on the Supreme Court ruling of Campbell v. Acuff-Rose Music, Inc.

While the legal issues play out, it’s time to up the ante on Mr. Henley’s liberal goon tactics.  By popular request, I have penned the words to our new parody song, an expose of Senator Barbara Boxer’s new cap-and-trade energy bill that will operate as a hidden tax that will also enrich a few people. 

So, here it is, sung to the tune of Henley’s “All She Wants to Do Is Dance” -

All She Wants to Do Is Tax

They’re pickin’ up the taxpayers and puttin
‘em in a jam
And all she wants to do is tax, tax
Liberals been liberals since I don’t know when
And all she wants to do is tax
Cap and trade program-from D.C. Inc.
And all she wants to do is tax, tax
They pull and push us right over the brink
And all she wants to do is tax
Barbara Boxer talkin’ round
Control in her sight
And all she wants to do is tax, tax
Wild-eyed global warmers
Who ain’t afraid to lie
And all she wants to do is-
And all she wants to do is tax
And break our backs
She can’t feel the heat comin’ off the street
She wants to party
She wants to get down
And all she wants to do is-
And all she wants to do is tax
Well, the government rigged the market
in the carbon trading scam
And all she wants to do is tax, tax
To keep the boys a sellin’
All the credits they could ma’am
And all she wants to do is tax
But that don’t keep the boys
From makin’ a buck or two
And all she wants to do is tax, tax
They still can sell the public
On the good that they can do
And all she wants to do is-
And all she wants to do is tax
And break our backs
Well, we barely made twenty ten
The vote was in doubt
As we finished up the campaign
She could hear the people shout
They said, don’t come back here Boxer!
But if she ever does-
We’ll bring more money
cause all she wants to do is tax
And break our backs
Never mind the heat comin’ off the street
She wants to party
She wants to get down
All she wants to do is-
All she wants to do is tax
All she wants to do is tax
And break our backs
All she wants to do is tax

We’re working on a new music video.  Others are welcome to take a crack at it too.
