Protesters sing a song of sixpence, er, $5K each, to Obama at SF fundraiser--
Song sung at Obama fundraiser breakfast in SF this morning.
Dear Mr. President we honor you today sir
Each of us brought you $5,000
It takes a lot of Benjamins to run a campaign
I paid my dues, where's our change?
We'll vote for you in 2012, yes that's true
Look at the Republicans - what else can we do
Even though we don't know if we'll retain our liberties
In what you seem content to call a free society
[Oops, there. Now he has no damn reason to listen to you anymore--sheesh]
Yes it's true that Terry Jones is legally free
To burn a people's holy book in shameful effigy
But at another location in this country
Alone in a 6x12 cell sits Bradley
23 hours a day is night
The 5th and 8th Amendments say this kind of thing ain't right
We paid our dues, where's our change?
Group behind this is offering payments for videos of people singing this song. See article.
