Rush To Judgement

What is it about the name Rush that drives people to become right-wing extremists? Rush Limbaugh is the most popular purveyor of right wing "hate speech" on AM talk radio. Rock band Rush is one of the few bands on the FM side of the dial that adopts a conservative/libertarian world view.

One of the band Rush's most conservative songs is "The Trees," a parable against the evil of political correctness. Here's how they might update it today, "The Teach":

There is unrest in Wisconsin,
With the teachers and their greed,
For they want big cushy pensions,
And medical benefits without fees.

The trouble with the teachers,
(And they're quite convinced they're right)
Taxpayers must fully fund their benefits,
And their wallets should be light.
But the taxpayers can't help it
If they'd like to save their pay.
And they wonder why the teachers
Can't contribute to a 401k.

There is trouble in the forest,
Democrat Senators all have fled,
From Illinois they scream "Oppression!"
As taxpayers just shake their heads.

So the Wisconsin teachers union
they began an illegal strike.
The taxpayers are just too greedy;
They will fund our years twilight.
Now the budget isn't balanced,
For the new law did not pass,
And the the taxpayers keep paying!
Keep paying, out the ass!
