I woke up feeling great
The birds are in the trees
They're singing me a melody
La-la-la-la, fork the police
My head is on straight
My heart is peace
My soul is incredibly
Ready to change history

It's a good day
To fight the system
(To fight the system)
It's a good, good, good day
It's a good, good, good day

We're never gonna stop
We're gonna make it count
When one of us is tired out
The other one will hold it down
We're gonna spread the love
We're gonna spread it round
We're all over the city now
And way down in the underground (come on)

It's a good day
To fight the system
(To fight the system)
It's a good, good, good day
It's a good, good, good day
It's a good day
To fight the system
(To fight the system)
It's a good, good, good day
It's a good, good, good day

It's a good, it's a good, it's a good, it's a good
It's a good, it's a good, it's a good
It's a good, it's a good, it's a good, it's a good
It's a good, it's a good, it's a good
It's a good, it's a good, it's a good, it's a good
It's a good, it's a good, it's a good
It's a good, it's a good, it's a good, it's a good
It's a good, it's a good, it's a good

It's a good day
To fight the system
(To fight the system)
It's a good, good, good day
It's a good, good, good day
It's a good day
To fight the system
(To fight the system)
It's a good, good, good day
It's a good, good, good day

Do point to the part of the Constitution that says you have that Right?
No, that ain't it.
 Not there either.
It is not in there, BUT there is that other place that says "If it isn't in here, the States get to make the decision" and there is where you get to go make whatever laws you want, as long as it doesn't try to take away Rights conveyed in the rest of the Document. Tricky, I know, but this should be covered in grade school at best, High School at the latest.

Or one can go and set their hair alight and run in circles, declaring stupid things.

No, the Constitution and Bill of Rights do not say there is an explicit right to an abortion. But let me ask you this: Does the Constitution or Bill of Rights give you a right to marry the person you want? Even if you are straight? No, it doesn't.  There's nothing in the Constitution or Bill of Rights that says you have the right to marry the person you love. The right for you to marry the person you want is derived from the Bill of Rights. 

The right to privacy - which is the basis for many decisions, including Roe - is derived from the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments. If you have no right to privacy for a personal decision - such as to have an abortion - then do you really have a right to marry the person you want?

Because you have no privacy, can the government now tell you when you can have sex? How many children you can have? All of these decisions - which had been between two consenting adults - are now subject to government fiat under the Roe decision.

Don't believe me? Wait until Griswold falls and states will move to outlaw the use contraceptives for adults in a marriage. You don't think that will happen? Justice Thomas has already said all the decisions determined on the same basis as Roe should be overturned. Griswold v. Connecticut is one of them. 

My suggestion is be careful what you wish for. The Supreme Court came for Roe. It's not likely they are going to stop there. 

P.S.: Want to bet that Thomas doesn't want to overturn Loving v. Virginia? Look it up then look at whom Justice Thomas married. The only rights that matter to that hypocrite are the ones that protect him.  Otherwise he wants to impose his morals upon the rest of us. I, for one, do not consent.

I find this response dismissive, sarcastic, and rude, which you likely know. You might be addressing someone who's had real hardship around reproduction and/or sexual assault. Did that occur to you, or do you simply not care?


It doesn't occur to me that that post was dismissive, rather it was offering a way forward to achieve that change.

there might be a 100 reasons to fight the system, agreed.
But with this anthem, the revoution might be short-lived.

Finally! Yay! They've been playing this for months on WRSI out of Northampton, MA. I've always been worried that RP caters to us old grayhairs a bit too much? Thanks Bill & Rebecca for keeping your ear to the musical ground.



I’m one of the grey hairs and I can still cope with lots of different genres and ages of music. That's why I listen to Radio Paradise. Being 'elderly and eclectic' are not mutually exclusive.

Brilliant song, sounds a bit Ani Di Franco (in a good way)!



But y'all won't add the Khruangbin tunes I've uploaded...
