For Richard Stanz

I found this spoof of The Immigrant Song at youtube. Understanding the lyrics of a LZ song might be a little easier than understanding the nuances of the immigration bill, well, you be the judge.

Update:  It’s dead, Jim

  1. I don’t think the person that made this understood the lyrics

    Ah, ah,
    We come from the land of the ice and snow,
    From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
    The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands,
    To fight the horde, singing and crying: Valhalla, I am coming!

    On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.

    Ah, ah,
    We come from the land of the ice and snow,
    From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
    How soft your fields so green, can whisper tales of gore,
    Of how we calmed the tides of war. We are your overlords.

    On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.

    So now you’d better stop and rebuild all your ruins,
    For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your losing.

  2. Henh..bonz, I think that was the point.
    It reminds me of an old friend that couldn’t get the lyrics of ZZ Tops “I’m Bad.” Where they would sing, “I’m bad…I’m nationwide” my bud would sing “I’m bad…I need some wine.” It took playing that song over and over, to get him to understand.
    For Robert Plant, he wasn’t much into enunciation.

  3. As for understanding the Shamnesty Bill, I think it is so difficult to understand the motivation, and not the words, it may as well be in Portuguese.

  4. Well, RIP, you POS immigration bill.

  5. I was just listening to cspan, and it sounded like tddy kennedy was going to cry.

  6. Mr. Lundgren, during a press conference this week in Washington, described the Senate bill as “insultingly, unforgivingly bad,” adding that the technology proposed in it is not capable of carrying out the required background checks or processing the fingerprint scans outlined by the bill.
    “There will be no meaningful criminal- or terrorist-record checks of the applicants,” Mr. Lundgren said. “Despite what the administration and Congress say about record checks to ease the voter’s mind, they are lying about it.
    “Yes, technology has improved and fingerprint checks can now be done online,” he said, “but there is more to a criminal-record check than a fingerprint check and even with technology, it can’t be done as quickly as they’re calling for it to be done.”

    And I’m sure that the criminal records of everybody anywhere in the world are available to the United States, translated into English, within 24 hours via computer, and we have tens of thousands of people standing by to do all of those record checks. Okay, thousands of people standing by to do those checks. Hundreds? Anybody?

  7. Good. Now he can go back to harassing the renewable wind power industry.

  8. ROFL. Yeah, that’s what it sounded like to me, too.

    /Never was quite sure what they were singing about.

  9. I would make myself available to do those record checks and as far as I’m concerned, if they’re illegal, they have a criminal record.

  10. DiFi says her “hair goes up every time someone calls it ‘amnesty’.”
    It’s a bad hair day. hehe

  11. #2 n2l, yeah, that was the point. Kind of like the title of the post (I pledge allegiance … and to the republic, for Richard Stanz)

  12. Oh, does DiFi want to get into dueling body parts now? I get a pain in the ass whenever somebody says that it is NOT amnesty.

  13. dick durbin is on now. such a dickhead

  14. I suppose he was named fortuitously.

  15. I call him dickless durbin, but that’s just me.
    The Admiral was near tears over the defeat of the Shamnesty Bill?
    Wow, that’s more concern than he ever displayed for Mary Jo.
    I don’t care what DiFi thinks, feels, believes, or about her hair.

  16. It’s kind hair

  17. Well, at least she voted nay, but I’m thinking it was because she didn’t understand what they were voting on, and when she was told it was the President’s bill, she reflexively voted nay.
    A piece a linked to a few days ago, by Dean Barnett still rings in my ear, that what W has done, has separated the base from him, and they are now free to find and support their new leader of the GOP.
    Is Rove really that smart?

  18. I don’t think so.
    This has been too painful for it to have been deliberate

  19. I think it’s a matter of GW thinking it was the right thing to do, and it didn’t matter if everybody was against it or not, he would support because he believes in it.

    /I can appreciate that. Just not support it.

  20. It’s been painful, alright.
    For whatever the motivations, of those that tried to force feed us this guano, the loud and rapid reply by the American people should reverberate in their offices for at least the next 17 months.

  21. I wish I could agree with you, Swampie. As flawed as this legislation was, either by design or through the compromises, this was one stupid bill to expend valuable political capital on. Why didn’t he expend this type of capital on SocSec reform, when he even had a majority in Congress to back him?
    Some have said that W feels this bill was his noblese oblige to the hispanics. I just don’t think it’s that simple, but doubt I will ever know the true motivations.

  22. Interesting.
    The cloture vote was the biggie, but only because so many Senators want to amend the bill.
    Like this’un.

  23. It could be as simple as family.

  24. If he tried to pull this boneheaded play for his SIL, country be damned, then he isn’t the person I believed him to be.
    I don’t think legislation this broad and culture changing is ever that simple.

  25. No, no, no. I was probably too succinct (a rarety for me) and merely meant that it could be the halo effect of when you think very highly of a representative from a specific group, organization, religion, or even country, you tend to generalize those positive emotions for that particular person to include the group, organization, religion, or even country as a whole.

  26. I still don’t agree, after looking back now at the Education Bill W let the Admiral of the Chappaqquidick craft, and then the Medicare drug program, I think there is more at play here, than something so simple. W is not stupid, and he could certainly see what this bill would have done to the American culture…forever.
