I was watching Occupy Wall Street Los Angeles livestream earlier today and there was some wonderful music playing that turned out to be “Uncle Sam Goddamn” by Brother Ali. It’s good to see someone doing some actual social and political commentary in music again, rather than the fatuous, self-serving prevalent schlock that glorifies criminality, misogyny, and brutality.

There was also a great slogan/demand that was being chanted:
“How to fix the deficit: End the war, tax the rich!”
