The Lyrics

Texas Gov Rick Perry recently visited Sacramento, Ca to persuade an electric car battery maker to build a Megafactory for 6500 workers in Texas instead of California. He drove downtown in a Tesla-S electric car to try to convince Californians he was Green and nobody bought it. In Texas you can't even buy an electric vehicle- the state doesn't have the electric stations nor the cars. It's all big trucks and oil over there, so no one was deceived. It bothered Cali Gov Jerry Brown though b/c California IS a Green state and leads in electric transportation. The photo-op was tacky and Perry again looked like a fool. Sacramento is full of electric cars and bicycles and green tech.
Rick Perry, shame on you!
Lost your mind

Tesla driver? No one believes you
Offer makin'
Electric car fakin'

Well, Gov Brown can't stand it
You drivin' around
We Californians knew better
Drove that Tesla on L Street downtown

[Perry knows in Lone Star they can't be found]

Rick Perry, shame on you!
You've lost your mind
You swine

Green- YOU?
Not fooled
Bad news
Just want battery plant
And you don't care
'Bout electricity
Crude's where you're at

[Go, please don't come back]

Transparency
Rick Perry, shame on you!
You've lost your mind
(All you want is the the battery factory)

[Green Energy belongs here in Cali]

So let's get this straight: the NSA has been caught pissing all over the Fourth Amendment; the VA has been caught in a massive scandal in which lots of veterans died on secret waiting lists while employees falsified records and Democrats praised the VA as a template for their own socialist PPACA system; the IRS is now pretending that the dog ate two years of Lois Lerner's e-mails (impossible as that is to believe); Seattle just committed suicide by fixing minimum wage at $15.00 an hour, thereby spiking unemployment and hastening the departure of all its small businesses for friendlier business climates; the lawless regime in the White House just traded five Taliban terrorists for Bowe Bergdahl, who's currently being tried for deserting his post to join the Taliban; Iraq, under the Democrats' care, has just shattered into warring factions and mass-murdering death squads run by terrorist Islamists, some of whom are terrorist leaders their lawless regime in the White House is directly responsible for having released from Guantanamo; illegal immigration is out of control as illegals flood over the border while Democrats and their spineless Republican collaborators talk amnesty and this lawless regime refuse to enforce immigration laws; and Tea Party upstart David Brat just won a huge upset over Eric Cantor.

So all you can find to sing satires about is something about Rick Perry looking insufficiently "green" to a bunch of your snobbish drivers of overpriced and underperforming electric cars in your People's Republic of California? Dude, have all you fruits and nuts in California been living under a rock or something?

As everyone (in California) knows, electricity comes from government kickbacks, hope & change, and unicorn farts.

Hmm... more stereotypical ravings from the non-Californian nuts. Rick Perry has tried for years to lure labor and tech from Cali over to Texas and is failing. So when he showed up downtown driving a Tesla everyone knew it was a BS photo-op to try to get the winning bid on a mega battery factory for electric cars with 6500 jobs over to Tx. Texas frowns on electric vehicles as it sits on crude and Texans love their big, inefficient trucks as status symbols of the modern cowboy egotism. I don't like electric cars myself or fuel cell tech but that's the future and Perry wants to fight Brown over jobs? Of course I side with my state. And all the other issues you mentioned have been done by me repeatedly over failed Obama Administration policies in the ME, NSA spying, Politics Left and Right, the reduction of US Armed Forces, emerging technologies, cancellation of the A-10, Putin's land grabs in Ukraine, and so on... so don't go there pal. Even my Fragment which is up is about ISIS. People here have a wide range of topics to present and state issues ARE done by _many_ here, whether political, social, or personal. Or do you claim to be a newbie? Far from it- you're a Vet in all probability. And a pontificator too ;-)
