Scammin' Me

Thanks to our QTreeper realsauce who posted a great Tom Petty video, Won’t Back Down, here:

Suddenly I remembered one of my FAVORITE videos of all times – the one where Tom Petty understood FAKE NEWS, FAKE ENTERTAINMENT, FAKE SCIENCE and FAKE HISTORY literally DECADES before we did.

Here are the original lyrics, as nearly as I can tweak them to the ad libs of the video:

Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers Lyrics

“Jammin’ Me”

You got me in a corner
You got me against the wall
I got no – where to go
I got no – where to fall

Take back your insurance
Baby nothin’s guaranteed
Take back your acid rain, baby
Let your T.V. bleed

You’re jammin’ me
You’re jammin’ me
Quit jammin’ me
Hey you can keep me painted in a corner
You can look away, but it’s not over

You’re jammin’ me

Take back your angry slander
Take back your pension plan
Take back your ups and downs of
Your life in raisin-land

Take back Vanessa Redgrave
Take back Joe Piscopo
Take back Eddie Murphy
Give ’em all some place to go

You’re jamming me
You’re jamming me
Quit jammin me
Yeah you can keep me painted in a corner
You can walk away, but it’s not over

Take back your Iranian torture
And the apple in young Steve’s eye
Yeah take back your losing streak
Check your front wheel drive

You’re jammin’ me
You’re jammin’ me
Quit jammin’ me

Take back Pasadena
Take back El Salvador
Take back that country club they’re
Tryin’ to build outside my door

You’re jammin’ me
You’re jammin’ me
Quit jammin’ me
Baby you can keep me painted in a corner
You can walk away, but it’s not over

Oh you’re jammin’ me
Quit jammin’ me
You’re jammin’ me

Well, you know what?

Time for an update.

STAND BACK!


Wolf Moon And The Deplorables Lyrics

“Scammin’ Me”

(Try playing the song while you read – it really helps!)


You got us in a corner

You got us against the wall

We got no – where to go

We got no – where to fall

Take back your crap insurance

With Obama’s guarantee

Take back your global warming

‘Cause we cut our T.V.s free

You’re scammin’ me

You’re scammin’ me

Quit scammin’ me

Hey you can keep us punched in a corner

But we will walk away, and it’s not over

You’re scammin’ me

Take back your patsy killers

Take back your gun grab plan

Take back your mind control of

Your lies in razor-land

Take back your crooked Clintons

Take back your fraud named O

Take back Loretta Comey

Give ’em all some place to go

You’re scamming me

You’re scamming me

Quit scammin’ me

Yeah you can keep us punched in a corner

But we will walk away, and it’s not over

Take back your Iranian cash grab

And our Apple as Tim Cook’s spy

Yeah take back your losing wars

Based upon your lie

You’re scammin’ me

You’re scammin’ me

Quit scammin’ me

Take back your Venezuela

Take back Paul Manafort

Take back your city slackers

You’re tryin’ so hard to import

You’re scammin’ me

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) were joined by Democratic lawmakers from both the House and Senate on February 7, 2019, to introduce Green New Deal legislation.

You’re scammin’ me

Quit scammin’ me

Baby you can keep us punched in a corner

But we will walk away, and it’s not over

Oh you’re scammin’ me

Quit scammin’ me

You’re scammin’ me

This may be a good place to put this link. There’s nothing in this article that’s new to the people here so much, but it is one man’s catharsis. A rant against what our government has become.

Great article. But he forgot the biggest Wilson sell-out of all – the Federal Reserve.

Aubergine

Wolf, that is just bloody brilliant! The pictures to go with the lyrics! OMG, I am just gobsmacked.

Plain Jane

I’m assuming Petty was never invited to the Zero’s white house. ( grin )
Powerful, Wolfie.

dreamboat annie

Jane…. sadly, he was …
Still broke my heart tho when he left..
My license plate has been AMRGRL , for about 12 or so years… I thought it tied in with my car too..

Plain Jane

Bummer. Whatcha driving? The coolest car I ever had was a white Pontiac Grand Prix. It cycled down to the oldest kids for HS and college wheels. I literally teared up when I took it to the recyclers. 🙂

dreamboat annie

Awwww..I know..We Americans love our cars..I drive a 1998 torch red corvette..I got it brand new, and really, it still looks new..I’ve had people get out of their car ( or city water work truck 😉) driving down the road, and get into mine for a short ride !! And the tie in is American Girl/ and it’s the American sports car …..

Plain Jane

Ha, ha, ha. THAT is the car I figured that you drove. 🙂 Although I didn’t even think about the year.
DH almost bought a classic white Corvette back in the late 60’s, but even though he was on scholarship at Purdue, he still financed his own everything else. He missed, but when he graduated he got himself a white with red ragtop Sunliner convertible. Lucky for him 🙂 I only dated convertibles. Hee, hee. That’s when I met him.
Both his brothers have white vets that they only pull out of their garages in warm weather.

Wonderful post Wolf. Scammin’. Light bulb moment for me. That’s what the Left is. Nothing but a bunch of Scammers.

Awesome post Wolf…..

daughnworks247

Well done, Boss. Great post.

daughnworks247

Ack!
Did you know, Big T had never heard of AC/DC until we got together?
Did he live on Mars?

daughnworks247

Undergrad 74-78
He went to law school, 78-81. Lot he missed.
He was – Yes, Bruce Springsteen (Do you know how many times he’s played Thunder Road?), Zeppelin, The Who, Jackson Browne, Dan Fogelberg, J Giles (I Musta Got Lost).
The Cars (one of my fvs) got their contract at Holy Cross. Big T says they “stank the joint out” and “there weren’t 20 people left by closing”.

pgroup

If you issed Tonio K, you missed damn near everything.

daughnworks247

Makes me want to jump.
We had such good music.

dreamboat annie

I missed him!!
Born on the 4th of July no less…
I like him, thank you!!

daughnworks247

We were on a trip overseas, I only had TWO Cd’s with me. Botticelli and ACDC.
Botticelli gets old, so I popped in the ACDC, driving music, IKR? He said, “Hey, they’re pretty good, who is that?”
I damn near died. He’s a major fan, now.

drillerelite

Wait, wuuuuut!?😯

Deplorable Patriot

You’ve got to be kidding. AC/DC?????????

daughnworks247

During Operation Desert Storm, there was an interview with a Navy Sailor. He talked about the song “Don’t Back Down”. It was played on the ship, on his way to the Gulf, so many times, the chords reverberated through the hull of the ship. To this day, when I hear the song, I think of that sailor and what he must have been going through.
Seems we keep coming back to Tom Petty for our fight songs.

pgroup

Other than his politics which stink out loud, …

zorrorides

Yeah, but we got yer politics now, Tom-bo. People here have re-made such great song lyrics in the past two years! Don’t we have any bands and singers who can bring these songs to life???
I’ll contribute some money. After all, ya know, sometimes ya get what you need.

Gail Combs

DANG!!! There is a Trump supporter who also has a band and I can not remember her name…
She does country (Christian?) pro-American music and has a pro-american website.

Sue Mcdonald

Absolutely loved Tom Petty right up till Q posted about the mad hatter and Alice. Tom Petty has a video out there on you tube ,can’t remember which song it was but he was the mad hatter and there was a life size Alice cake on a plank and he was cutting it up and eating it.,havnt quite felt the same about him given what I now know😔 the vid was very creepy if I recall.

Sue Mcdonald

I will take that into consideration Wolf. Tom Petty has always been one of my favorite musicians.i would rock out to petty and lynerd Skinner for 815 miles every summer for when the kids and I would go visit my parents.lol my kids still like those 2 bands.Petty as far as I knew never injected politics into his interviews which I appreciated so much.ive been hyper aware of everything these days,it’s hard to watch tv and see the evil right in my face,all this satanic pedo stuff is enough to make my soul sick,I wonder now what exactly are we going to do about this?these evil people have used us ,lied to us,stolen our children,stolen our money and sucked the life out of us and I want justice so badly but fear these monsters will walk free to keep on hurting us.this tree house is what keeps me sane thank you so much Wolf.

Sue Mcdonald

Someday Wolf i will tell the story of my life for
14 years with a pedo and how i was groomed and gaslighted and told i was crazy and how i escaped.ive been in therapy for 8 years and have learned a lot about life and people. I know what these kids and women have gone through and that’s why when I see how the elites so called have doing this it makes me so angry inside and sick at the same time.what will be done I think.these people must pay for this.will it bring peace to all of us I don’t know ,I do know that they must be put away from society and never be allowed back in public again.

Sue Mcdonald

I am trusting the plan 100%!I get a little overwrought with deluge of info Q told us D5 but it seems like D10 these past 2 weeks.and most of all the end to the abuse of innocents.

Awesome, awesome, awesome!

BRAVO Wolfie – this is a great post – one of your very best! Won’t be forgotten!

dreamboat annie

Stand Back !

thinkthinkthink

Talking about not backing down…
Candace and Steve at the WORST SPOT ON THE BORDER … after the citizen funded wall has been put up.
Discussing IMPORTANT aspect of the #WAR.
Demonizing the Hispanic men and women of the CBP and ICE so that they are unsafe in their own communities.
This makes recruitment harder and leads to loss of personnel.
This is #WAR
Lots more discussed (about an hour) but it is powerful, cutting edge, strategic info.

thinkthinkthink

Wolf, I highly recommend watching this.

thinkthinkthink

A real thinker.
Interesting that he brings up the inequities of Wall Street.
I was just watching something from the Overstock CEO Patrick Bryne (excellent watch, would love your take on this Buffett protege that studied cryptography at Stanford before it was a thing). He was pointing out the problems with WS before the 2008 crash and WS hated him for it (according to him).
In fact, I’d love Daughn’s take on his assertion that the world could be completely moved to blockchain finance within 5 years.
He’s advising a whole lot of countries in how to do just that right now.

elena1950909deplorable

THIS IS THE BEST POST EVER!!!

daughnworks247

He really did a great job, didn’t he? Super creative!

Yes, very impressive. I shared it in some of my groups on FB

My favorite version of Tom Petty’s I won’t back down is by Johnny Cash. Petty added instruments and vocals to the Cash version:

This song is #1 on my Trump Music list. It just fits our gutsy bold go-for-the-gold PDJT!

Just out on the prairie, running down a dream here. What a great thing to read/see/listen to while taking lunch. That was awesome wolf!

God’s Country….
I spend a month in the Teton’s with a college outing club hiking and climbing…. very fond memories.
It is a REAL SHAME the darn Commies have now screwed-up Colorado.

drillerelite

The Tetons! When drillerwife and I took my camper and ran off to get married up at Priest Lake in northern Idaho we drove up from Colorado almost to Yellowstone when we had to stop for the night (late start 🙄). Drove up a backroad to find a wide spot where we could sleep and the next morning I opened the window covers to the most spectacular, picturesque view of the Tetons that one could imagine. A magical experience!
It is a shame what the commies are doing to Colorado though, I love it here but might be driven out if we turn further into California ☹
Can’t find a pic from that morning but the view was similar to this, only we could see the whole range from an adjacent mountainside that we were perched on. We felt God’s spirit and blessing on us.comment image

From Day 1 – the day he rode down the escalator – President Trump has not genuflected to the media – he leads them on a merry chase like kittens after a red laser dot – and that continues to this day!

Extraordinary post, Wolfie.

MONOPOLY COMMUNISM.
Boy did that trigger a thought.
From E.M. Smith (He has a degree in Economics)
“Evil Socialism” vs “Evil Capitalism”
EXCERPTS (I highly recommend reading the whole comment.)
The bolding is mine… So MANY great ideas and clearifications for non-economists. It is VERY OBVIOUS THAT president Trump is ANTI-FASCIST!!! 😲
🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣

…..Realize that the capitalist urge is not toward a competitive market. It’s the very LAST thing any profit maximizer wants. Even in Adam Smith’s “The Wealth Of Nations” he recognizes that ~’Rairly do men of means gather, even for merryment and {discourse?} but that the conversation turns to ways to {restrict competition and raise prices}’.
What a profit maximizer wants is a monopoly where they can achieve the profit maximizing price point. Not competition. No “market” with many sellers.
So watch what GE does, as an example. It is always on the hunt for a market it can “dominate”. It uses political leverage to get its products mandated and the competition banned. It doesn’t want a market, it wants a ‘company store’.
Internalize that, and a lot of things “fit” better…
Monsanto pushing legislation to ban private traditional seeds and seed sharing, and promoting GMO products. (Why would a seed company want to ‘destroy’ a seed market? So you must come to the company store…)
EPA is used to forbid all sorts of things that can be done easily and cheaply, and where the alternative is very expensive (and available from very few, or one, supplier). So, want to make your own “trash to fuel FT machine”? Well, better check out all the “regulations” on fuel refining and production … if you don’t have a few full time lawyers to fill out the paperwork and a few more to defend against the EPA suing you, it’s a no-go. And who DOES have those lawyers? AND the already established refineries? Oh yeah…
Once corporations figure out that it is cheaper and easier to get the competition banned and them mandated, than to create new products; and that they can make lots of money as the sole provider of a crappy product but not that much making good products in a competitive market; well, lets just say that the campagne contributions flow…
Oddly, you can look at Communism as the “limit case” where there is ONE corporation and it IS the government. At the other extreme is “laissez faire” with huge numbers of competitors. As you move toward Communism you pass through stages of ever more “concentration” of control. Just shy of communism is Classical Socialism with it’s state planning boards and commissions. A bit more toward L.F. you get “Market Socialism” (with some sub-types in between).

The USA until about 1990 was a “Mixed Economy” with some “natural monopolies” under government “control” via “regulation”; and with many competitive markets. We’ve moved to more central planning and more central “regulation” (in some cases as a cover for the “planning” word that has gotten tied to Socialism… so is political to some extent). With the nationalization of GM and the bank “bailout” / “rescue” that was really more of a ‘take-under’ in some ways; we moved to a Lange Type Socialism.
The result of the last 50 years has been more companies in markets with Oligopolies that are essentially guaranteed by the government. Who dominates the Home Mortgage Market? Fanny & Freddy – Gov’t Corporations. Who dominates the Student Loan Market? Sally Mae – a Gov’t Corporation. Who dominates US Autos? GM – a Gov’t Corporation via Nationalization, but now being sold off. (Though Ford is doing well too.) And who “Calls the Tune” for the Banks in America? ALL of them? The Federal Reserve Bank – a Gov’t sponsored corporation. And there are a whole lot more of them. Try taking a train from coast to coast for example…
At the next tier down, we have Gov’t dependent Oligopolies. Say you wanted to make airplanes. First off, you need that dozen lawyers to work the FAA for you. Next up, you need some friends in the Military to feed you contracts. Don’t think so? When Boeing gets a $B contract to ‘study’ or ‘develop’ and you need to design your new tech from scratch on your own money: Who do you think will win? So the government basically decides how many companies it wants, and who they will be, then funds them “to plan” with contracts. (This is NOT a hypothetical… I’ve watched them flat out announce “We’d like Lockheed and Martin to merge” or “we don’t want…” usually when one of them is ‘having issues’ and the topic is raised. Then the gov’t casts the one vote that matters…)
And so it goes…
This is, dare I say it…. basically the same way the Fascist “Third Way” worked. (And it DOES work). FDR and Wilson both had high praise for The Third Way and you can see how they shifted America from a ‘free market’ toward “Third Way” government – corporation “cooperation” … It was this same process / tendency that Ike warned about in the “Military Industrial Complex” speech.
So we’ve moved away from straight up competition (and with good reasons… it is less profitable and more destructive in some ways and it is prone to monopoly practices) and toward that Classical Socialist end of things; with exact placement varying over time. And we called it a “Mixed Economy” at the ‘tepid’ end; as the name “fascist Third Way” got a bit tainted during W.W.II …. that tendency for Mussolini and Hitler to stir in a load of Nationalism and for the Nazi’s a double helping of Racism spoiled the soup for the Third Way “Socialist Lite” folks like FDR.
And the propaganda worked.
We’ve now got a “Progressive” and a “Third Way” government that IS a form of Socialism. (Now being rebranded as “Market Socialism” in the Eastern Block and Euro zones; called “Regulation” in the USA and sometimes poking it’s head up under “Rescue” as well with the most recent bits called “Social Justice”… all the pieces as slices of salami, but no overall Big Picture of it… we like to keep our socialism hidden in tiny bites with different names.) But just don’t ever point out that it’s basically the same “Third Way” process, using what’s properly called “Corporatism”, to achieve the Socialist agenda; that was first innovated by the Fascists… After all, it doesn’t fit the propaganda paradigm “Fascists bad, WORLD Socialists good” put out by Stalin
And that is the root cause of your pondering. Corporations are very happy under a Socialist Third Way / Progressive / Market Socialism / Fascist / “Government regulated Coopetition” (whatever you name you like to apply to the same beast) system. They are not very happy with wide open competitive markets. See all of Europe for an example of “Managed Markets” (yet another name…) The French are masters of this technique, and the Germans not far behind. The Japanese innovated the Keiretsu as a way to limit competition to manageable chunks with government supervision.
Like I said, it DOES work. What galls me is just that we run around putting 20 different names on the same process and that just hides what’s really going on. All for political reasons. Very “un-tidy”… You’d think these folks had something to hide…
