Long live rock, I need it every night

These people have lost their minds

If you live in California and you love freedom, then I suggest you hurry out to your shed and fetch your pitchfork. Here's the latest:

As state leaders hunt for politically palatable solutions to the swelling budget shortfall, some Democrats are proposing unorthodox ways to generate cash.

Strip clubs, six-packs, grocery bags and iTunes downloads are all in their sights as alternatives to broad income or sales tax hikes. So are gas guzzlers and yachts -- and a tax loophole for criminals.

I have written a nice poem that I think crystallizes my feelings:

First they came for the trans-fats

but I was not a lard-ass, so I did not speak up;

Then they came for my recyclables

but I am not a dolphin, so I didn't care;

Then they came for the smokers

and I kept silent, because I considered myself a social smoker;

And when they came for my beer, porn, and rock

there was no one left to speak up for me.

Schwarzenegger would never take your porn away. He loves it too much.

I find your poetry scary. Scary good.

I totally wrote that poem all by myself, no one helped me with it.

I'm thinking of entering it into a local poetry contest.
