There’s Something Happening Here!!

The bomb in the Chelsea section of New York City was close to my daughter’s apartment, too close. The vicious stabbings in St. Cloud Minnesota were close to my house, too close.

These terrorist attacks have some additional quality, they are the events that made it all real. Americans have shrugged off earlier attacks as our leaders have ignored them. The dead at Ft. Hood, for example, died in vain, as Obama called it a work place incident. Others don’t recognize the threat, but now people are aware and are scared. Even the dimwit DiBlasio, New York City’s Mayor, admitted that this was terrorism. The cat is out of the bag.

These slightly altered lyrics tell the tale:

Apologies to Buffalo Springfield

There’s something happening here
What it is ain’t exactly clear
There’s a man with a beard over there
Telling me I got to believe.

I think it’s time we wake up, children, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down

There’s battle lines being drawn
We fought them there and now they’re here.

We’re right and they’re wrong
People are getting their guns
Getting resistance from leaders behind

I think it’s time we start, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down

Now we pray for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side

It’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down

It’s not paranoia; it strikes deep.
Into your life islamophobia will creep
You’re called deplorable, its worse each day.
You step out of line, the man come and take you away

We better start, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Stop, now, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Start, children, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
