Lefty politics ahead

Just a fair warning. :)

So…translation? :)

the backing track was great & full of energy but the lack of a good melody let it down but maybe the words are the important bit with a song like this anyway

Ah, I don’t do good melodies, you know that, Tina! :) Anyway, most of the melody, such as it is, is stolen from a couple of old union songs from 100 years ago.

We’ve got you sussed Mr Spademan… if that really is your name…

I think you’ve got Tom Petty locked up somewhere churning out these fantastic tunes when all the while you’re astro-turfing.

Eh?, eh?

:whistle:

(Could be another song there Tom!)

I am that Tom, not to be confused with another Thomas of the same last name but no relation, who was sent to Australia in the 1870s for larceny, and then died. I’m actually a Spätemann (late-person). Spademans are English, descendants of a man who had a job cutting whale blubber (a “spademan”). 19th century census workers messed it up. :) Curiously enough, my dad worked as a spademan on a destroyer in the Korean War in the 1950s.

Astroturfing - yeah, that is unbelievable. :disagree:

I really should followup on my lineage sometime; it’s interesting stuff.

But I’ve decided that the real astroturfer is UJ. Commissioned by the R boys I reckon. :)

Ah, no doubt you are correct, Mark, no doubt.

Uh-huh... riiiggghhhhtttt...

UJ

Well, Mark, he could be a plant from the left, to discredit the right.

... or vice-versa... oh... wait. The left doesn't need discrediting "help". Just being "left" is enough. :laugh:

UJ

All that evidence-based reasoning does tend to discredit it in the eyes of ideologues, UJ, I totally agree. All we need is truthiness! :)

Hm. UJ is a former member. Hmm.

Hmm.

He's been several former members :)

that he has… but is he real or just another me? Did he ever exist? Is this real? Am I real?

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

this is not the real deal, this is the 4 bar intro, but we won’t all know that until we’re in the real deal
