"Bad Raids"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Remember the claims of "surgical strikes" against Al Qaida using Predator, Reaper, and Sentinel UCAVs? The 80%+ success rate claimed? Turns out that the real ground assessment reveals a mere 20% success rate and so the CIA has lost the drones to the military under which they belong. And if not already flying will be redeployed over the US as well to spy on US citizens- an aerial PRISM scheme. Congrats to the DEMs for surpassing us REPs for destruction of Constitutional rights and creation of a Big Brother environment where the elected Govt. doesn't trust you to run your lives. Say goodbye to Freedom...
We were stuck with bad raid fans,
missed Al-Qaida, hit civvies
Now there’s a CIA ban,
seek reliability
Yes, the Predators and Reapers were tough
Brought “Nintendo Jockeys” glee
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh...
We were stuck with bad raid fans
(All those wins claimed were grand)
but (ground) assessment disagreed!!!

[Domestic surveillence we don't need]
"Nintendo Jockeys" is term for those that pilot the unmanned drones hundreds if not thousands of miles away via satellite...

I couldn't care less what you think HH. I have a wide range of OS out of the 2032 I have in record time and am taking it slow now as the 1000 and 2000 objectives were achieved with ease. I have broken so many records here in parodies, and submissions that your opinions mean nothing. You have shown that you lack basic integrity of your convictions by not being man or woman enough to post your own name to these complaints. And so what if I am running serial blocks of a handful of base songs? I am rounding up these numbers for MY benefit, not to please anyone else. You seem to have a double standard for the Artistry and me as they do the same things with their choices of OS. And despite what you say, my hits reveal a steady fanbase whether they comment or not. Those that do comment for the most part like my materials which vary and appreciate my vast knowledge base. You are irrelevent to me and your authority to judge me is not only questionable, but laughable. @S... reported. Being somewhat of an authority on Third Reich history, symbology, their occult foundation, their weapon systems, and esp. Flugscheiben... does not necessarily add up to the hateful Nazi term. I actively have supported Israel for decades with funds sent to the IDF, FIDF, and religious IFCJ helping Jews make Aliyah to Israel and feeding them. For Israel's troops I have provided for many non-military programs that help Israeli single soldiers and families. Nazis don't help Jews or really anyone. I have supported over 32 charities total in life, again over many decades, and actively help the homeless in my area as well as my local library with book donations and support eco-friendly programs as well. Moving on...this parody today is about the Bush & Obama Administrations' blatant lies about the accuracy of the UCAVs deployed overseas and their future use against US private citizens. Both are factual and disturbing. I chose a simple commercial as OS b/c Band Aids was perfect for the Bad Raids substitute. Sometimes the small OS are harder to write lyrics for than pop megahits or retreads of the old crooners that have endless repetition. I have mixed many genres over these 2032 parodies and your accusations aren't anywhere near accurate as my author sheet proves. I even did the Beatles too and have 205 of their songs!Percentages for SJH is 29% and WHP a mere 7%, leaving 64% other. I dominate in so many categories and in some individual artists like Gaga (135 parodies). I have the most superhero parodies here (127) and am leader of parodies of parodies (62). I have broken the daily record for parodies (22) and for Fragment weeks in a row (8). I dominate 7 of my 10 submission categories too with no close competitors and overall have 6140 total submissions. I have no competition at all occupying both Top 10 spots SIMULTANEOUSLY! So WHO ARE YOU and what have YOU done??? Wanna compare stats for time alotted? You lose. By the way HH your initials stand for "Heil Hitler!!!" How ironic :)~

Mr. No Common Sense ignores the fact that the majority of parodies overall follow current events which are by the world's very nature- violent and disturbing. I have no hate parodies just my views on war, conflict, and foreign policy. But I also write about everything from movies to comics to weather to food to some masked sexuality, art, science, and the bizarre. I admire Hu who wrote on a KKK weapon yesterday. I thrive on info and try to pack too much into my parodies and comment boxes. But I don't force anyone to read or rate my parodies. If you really don't like what I write, then vote 555 for your Artistry, Vet, or Newbie parodists. Seriously. 1-bombing me will not force me off-site. I will only respond with MORE parodies dealing with war, politics, and controversial things. And to think... I was in a slow-down when all this 1-bombing began!!! Btw, WHO bombs patriotic parodies about icons like Superman and Tonto of the Lone Ranger??? Your ratings there prove that you are no patriot just an aggressor against me and I'm German so it's kinda like a Sherman firing at a King Tiger ;-)

Quick question Rob, You name dropped Artistry in these responses a few times. What's up with that? Artistry is open to all people and we welcome everyone to enter their work. We are a select few. If you wanted to enter your work into a few of the rounds we would be glad to see you and invite you back again and again. I don't know if that was slander on part of Artistry or not though, I just wanted to state my case as being not only a member of Artistry but as one of the founders of the game.

We are not* a select few (that should read above)

I have nothing against the Artistry except for when they tear down others as inferior, use sockpuppets to make rude comments, and pretend not to be 1-bombing my parodies!!! I am a numbers man and production machine who uses unorthodox topics and styles. So I am different. But I get PO'd like anyone else that has 555'd these people only to have them 111 myself and others out of some personal vendetta or for fun.
Matthias - June 22, 2013 - Report this comment
I can grantee that nobody in the Artistry has done that because like I said the Artistry isn't a select group of people. It's not an organization more of a collective melting pot so we don't have members because anybody can join.
Rob Arndt - June 23, 2013 - Report this comment
Thanks Matthias for your opinions. Since there are no members as you claim then by what authority do you speak for them??? You have no clue HOW they rate nor IF they are 1-bombers. Having come from a high-traffic NG where I reigned with 22,500 posts and which was an unmoderated NG... I see the same old tired MOs of false compliments followed by bombings, treble-rating to mess up someones score, the attacks on my artist page, the sockpuppet banter, and alliances like the pacing police that tell newbies and Vets alike how to write parodies. It is empirically evident that I started off new and am now firmly a song parodist, not just by numbers but by my collective diversity of topics, artists, time periods, and use of unconventional materials. I have my own style, my own reputation, and my own merit for what my small fanbase likes. I have received a lot of good compliments from the senior Vets and from some parodists that have left for whatever reason- perhaps they were burnt-out. But it still bothers me that I have rated many of these people 555s only to be hit by 111s b/c they don't like aviation, Third Reich material, my political party or views, etc... I find it amazing that a lot of parodies here are mere toilet humor and the mundane. Other Artistry works are repetitious linguistic vomit or masked sexuality. I see that many people auto-rate JAB 555s simply b/c of his rep and style... and yet can't help but wonder if many of those people even understand what he is writing about!!! I know that my Milspeak is very troublesome to this group b/c I specialize in military linguistics, tech refs, and future weapon systems. I also explore a range of atypical topics on religion, symbology, trivia, aggressive females, shemale sexuality, and so on. Like I've stated numerous times before, I just write off the top of my head anything I feel like writing and I write everyday here or elsewhere. I am not just a parodist, but a published poet, and online author of 12 books (fiction and non-fiction) including a complete individual Star Wars trilogy that was ordered removed by Lucasfilm prior to acquistion by Disney. Each novel is approx 600-700 pgs each! Pre-BBY 25,000. I am known all over the Net for my Third Reich materials and especially Flugscheiben (German Flight Discs of WW2). So naturally, I write to my strengths as anyone would or should. I make no apologies to anyone over anything I've written in the last 2 years. Until this year my artist page was all 4-5s and then someone or a group decided to start bombing in Feb and this did not deter me from reaching 2000 parodies and solidifying my position as both Top 10 Parodist (#4) and Top 10 Contributor (#6). I am the only one that is both Top 10s, so again, no one can lecture me about anything on AiR. I am unique here and have broken the records on multiple fronts in record time and as an amatuer to boot! TY for trying to clear your buddies and yourself but all remain under suspicion by me. You cannot guarantee anything Matthias. Nice try though. Seriosuly, TY for taking your time to offer your views on the situation. I remain skeptical at best. :)

the scores are noted for pacing, how funny, how would someone possibly give you more than a 111, what a waste of time to read your "songs" or posts
Rob Arndt - June 23, 2013 - Report this comment
Have you read all 2032 of my parodies? Funny, but people have been reading them for over 2 years now and like I stated earlier, the ratings were all 4-5s. The rating system means little, however, b/c it is fundamentally flawed. Pacing is fine, but funny is only one type of parody as others are: witty, sarcastic, optimistic, morbid, perverted, gross, tributes of various kinds, or spins of unconventional materials. Most of the combined authors are not pacing perfectionists either but still get good ratings if people like the topics or style of the parodist. Face the facts- people most often vote favorably for the parodists they like and their individual styles. Most auto-rate the high vets 555s regardless of the topic or even if they can't comprehend what they are writing about. They retread old OS too. Nothing complex there. My hit numbers and totals for the years refute your "waste of time" opinion Charley boy. Look at the rating scoreboard now. As the Brits would say, "use a bit 'a common, man!!!" Btw, Charley, are you even a parodist at all, or just a commentator? If the latter, please take your comments to a NG or a chatroom instead.

Robbie boy has a point. There should be voting categories for How Sarcastic, Optimistic, Morbid, Perverted, and Gross. Reading his reply to you, Charles, I might add Disrespectful. Now get to work and read all 2032 of his parodies.

There is a secret cabal against you, run by Matthias, Noam Chomsky, and me. We meet in a mountaintop mansion at a long table on stormy nights to plot your demise in a flood of 1s. The attendees are Democrats, pacifists, non-gun owners, Islamists, non-Aryans, humorists, and public intellectuals.
