~"I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!~
My homage to the epic diatribe in the movie, The Network, as well as the efforts of the 99% at Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Everywhere Else.

-----The Words Upon the Music----
I don't have to tell you things are bad - everybody knows things are bad.
It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job.
The dollar buys a nickles' worth.
Banks are going bust; shop-keepers keep a gun under the counter.
Punks are running wild in the street and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do and there's no end to it.
We know the air is unfit to breathe, our food is unfit to eat.
We sit watching our t.v.s' while some local newscaster tells us that today we've had 15 homicides and 63 violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be.
We know things are bad - worse than bad.
They're crazy. (as if that's the way it's supposed to be.)
It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore. We sit in the house and slowly the world we're living in is getting smaller, and all we say is 'Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my tv and my steel-belted radials, and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone.'
Well, I'm not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad.
I don't want you to protest, I don't want you to riot, I don't want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street.
All I know is that first, you've got to get mad. You've got to say, "I'm a Human Being, God dammit, my Life has value!"
I want you to get up, now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now, go to the window, open it and stick your head out and yell,
"I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!"
