Bailed

So they passed the bailout bill....
The stock market is still in a free fall....
What should I be for Halloween?

I think it would be really hard to top last year's Jesus costume. Maybe you should stay in the religious satire genre....

How about Jesus dressed up as a soccer goalie, with the theme being "Jesus Saves"?

Thats hilarious, except I think I'd go with a hockey goalie, yeah get a cool mask that way. Nah, soccer is the way to go, way less shit ya gotta wear, it's hard to drink a beer with a hockey mask on.

But the hockey gear would remind me of the Propagandhi song Resisting Tyrannical Governments

why don't we all strap bombs to our chests and ride our bikes to the next g-7 picnic? it seems easier with every clock tick. but whose will would that represent? mine? yours? the rank-and-file's? or better yet: the government's? but i don't want to catalyze or synthesize the second final solution. i don't want to be the steve smith of the revolution. do you see the analogy? we're the oilers. the world bank- the flames! and just 2 minutes remain in the 7th game of the best of 7 series! yeah, jesus saves! gretzky scores! the workers slave. the rich get more. one wrong move and we risk the cup. so play the man, not the puck. why don't we plant a mechanic virus and erase the memory of the machines that maintain this capitalist dynasty? and yes, i recognize the irony that the very system i oppose affords me the luxury of biting the hand that feeds. but that's exactly why priviledged fucks like me should feel obliged to whine and kick and scream- until everyone has everything they need.
