NOFX – The Idiots Are Taking Over

I try to keep politics out of this blog, we’re here for the music. However, there was an election here in Ontario yesterday. For some reason, after I read the results this morning, I had this song in my head all day…


it’s not the right time to be sober
now the idiots have taken over
spreading like a social cancer, is there an answer?

Mensa membership conceding
tell me why and how are all the stupid people breeding
Watson, it’s really elementary
the industrial revolution
has flipped the bitch on evolution
the benevolent and wise are being thwarted, ostracized, what a bummer
the world keeps getting dumber
insensitivity is standard and faith is being fancied over reason

darwin’s rollin over in his coffin
the fittest are surviving much less often
now everything seems to be reversing, and it’s worsening
someone flopped a steamer in the gene pool
now angry mob mentality’s no longer the exception, it’s the rule
and I’m startin to feel a lot like charlton heston
stranded on a primate planet
apes and orangutans that ran it to the ground
with generals and the armies that obeyed them
followers following fables
philosophies that enable them to rule without regard

there’s no point for democracy when ignorance is celebrated
political scientists get the same one vote as some Arkansas inbred
majority rule don’t work in mental institutions
sometimes the smallest softest voice carries the grand biggest solutions

what are we left with?
a nation of god-fearing pregnant nationalists
who feel it’s their duty to populate the homeland
pass on traditions
how to get ahead religions
And prosperity via simpleton culture

the idiots are taking over [x8]

    Tbay voted 1 Liberal and 1 NDP in…
    Liberals have maintained a hold here since 1999..Change was needed but in my riding the Liberal Fella won which was a drag…wanted both of them gone…change it up…same ol same ol for almost 20 years here..oh well at least one seat changed…
    The win by the NDP was only by 81 votes or something so a recount may happen dunno…
    Voting station when I showed up at 4 pm was dead as one just me…when I submitted my vote 4 more people were trickling in….

    I don’t talk politics here anywhere (esp on Facecrack) so this is all that your getting from me..

      Haha you don’t talk politics but you wrote a book. Mr. Books! Thanks for chiming in brother, but I gotta say you’re lucky to have to wrassle with Liberal and NDP. In my neck of the woods, the necks are so red… we’ve had our new majority party in power here so long, I think it’s burnt into the wood by now. Jeebus what a backwards lot, knee-jerk voting ‘cos that’s the way their daddy voted. Hang on to your hats, fellow Ontarians. It could be a wild ride. Definitely keep your head and limbs inside the windows.

    ‘Someone plopped a steamer in the gene pool.’ It combines politics and poop jokes. I’m not a NOFX fan, but I might have to check this out.

      I love this song. It was written for the G.W. Bush era of America, but, sadly, it still applies today. I recommend NOFX for good, smart, fast pop punk. Try Heavy Petting Zoo or So Long And Thanks For All The Shoes, those records are accessible and fun!

      The Ontario PC party was elected last night.
      Doug Trump…I mean Doug Ford was elected.

      Suffice it to say his sister-in-law is suing him over mismanagement of his dead brothers portion of the company. Run the company into the ground and walk away with millions. Sounds like a certain orange gent.

      I predict job losses, higher taxes for the middle/lower class and breaks for the rich.

      Do you remember the hubbub about Rob Ford? The big fat obnoxious offensive mayor of Toronto? Our province just voted in his brother as our conservative Premier of the province of Ontario, and a majority at that. Take all the worst about Trump and make it Canadian. Hence the song I posted!

        I hadn’t realised the connection between them. Had a wee read about him and read Bop’s comment, too… That’s some grim state of affairs.
