I'm The Slime.. Zappa for Prescient, 1975

on Amazon Music
[backing vocals Tina Turner & The Ikettes]

I am gross and perverted
I'm obsessed 'n deranged
I have existed for years
But very little has changed
I'm the tool of the Government
And industry too
For I am destined to rule
And regulate you

I may be vile and pernicious
But you can't look away
I make you think I'm delicious
With the stuff that I say
I'm the best you can get
Have you guessed me yet?
I'm the slime oozin' out
From your TV set

You will obey me while I lead you
And eat the garbage that I feed you
Until the day that we don't need you
Don't go for help . . . no one will heed you
Your mind is totally controlled
It has been stuffed into my mold
And you will do as you are told
Until the rights to you are sold

That's right, folks . . .
Don't touch that dial

Well, I am the slime from your video
Oozin' along on your livin' room floor

I am the slime from your video
Can't stop the slime, people, lookit me go

I am the slime from your video
Oozin' along on your livin' room floor

I am the slime from your video
Can't stop the slime, people, lookit me go

Does the tax bill

Free money held by US (Obama) in other countries for taxation avoidance?

I though he mentioned that yesterday and a friend just made that argument.

Mueller firing: Rapid Response...

Donald Trump is publicly considering firing special counsel Robert Mueller, the person leading the Department of Justice investigation of possible illegal actions by Donald Trump and members of his presidential campaign, and the efforts to conceal those activities.

This would be a constitutional crisis for our country. It would demand an immediate and unequivocal response to show that we will not tolerate abuse of power from Donald Trump.

Our response in the minutes and hours following a power grab will dictate what happens next, and whether Congress—the only body with the constitutional power and obligation to rein Trump in from his rampage—will do anything to stand up to him.

That's why we're preparing to hold emergency "Nobody is Above the Law" rallies around the country in the event they are needed.

Use the map or search below by ZIP code to find an event near you, or create one if none exists.

Rallies will begin hours after news breaks of a Mueller firing:

If Mueller is fired BEFORE 2 P.M. local time —> events will begin @ 5 P.M. local time
If Mueller is fired AFTER 2 P.M. local time —> events will begin @ noon local time the following day
This is the general plan—please confirm details on your event page, as individual hosts may tailor their events to their local plan.
This is our moment to stand up to protect our democracy. Let's mobilize to show that we won't let Donald Trump become the authoritarian that he aspires to be. The law applies to all of us, and it's essential that it also applies to the most powerful people in our country.

Use the search tool to find an event near you, or create one if none exists.

If you choose to attend an event, you agree to engage in nonviolent, peaceful action, to act lawfully, and to strive to de-escalate any potential confrontations with those who may disagree with our values.

Bowen therapy? Anyone try it?


Yes thinking about trying this. I have extreme, Piriformis Syndrome. my pain is getting too bad and my usual medications are not working anymore. I've been in screaming agony so I thought I'd go another way. I've tried these guys before, at the flea market. It was a shorter version of what they do and it helped, just five minutes. Something's got to happen on this leg. I mean I'm like crying, so I think I'm going to give these guys a try . I'm wondering if any of you to you or is out there I've ever tried him so let me know

2020 Dem nominee MUST BE a woman

The Al Franken take down illustrates that more than ever. All you have to do is make the accusation, without providing any proof whatsoever, that you were sexually assaulted.
In Franken's case, he had no proof that he didn't (Republicans are great at having to prove a negative) do whatever he was accused of, even though there are photos of him doing nothing. Those photos are proof he molested someone? No.
Anyway, every man will get the same treatment. Biden? He won't be able to stand it. A woman is less likely to he charged with sexual crimes.
