<gurgling intestinal activity and squeaky door> [The Unites States Department of Veterans Affairs released a study, which, revealed twenty-two veterans commit suicide every day.] How long can I do this? How long can carry such grief? How long 'til it's over and done, Please tell me when it's safe to breathe. Ten fingers, ten toes, How many more, nobody knows; I've lost count over these two short years and, now they tell me it's beginning to snow. Don't call them heroes They never, ever asked that of you; They served the bankers in the dirty little sandbox, then came back home with nothing to do. All the opportunities lost, Do you ever count the cost? At the gas pump, the grocery store, We all cling to the bosom of the whores of war. One by one they all pass away, and we're losing twenty-two every day; One by one they all take their own lives, Over walking the streets and tryin' to survive... One by one they all pass away, and we're losing twenty-two every day; One by one they all pass away, and we're losing twenty-two Veterans every day!

It’s barely twenty four hours later, & everyone is screamin’; Facecrack, tweaker and your twenty four hour news… There’s no one out here but the haters and takers, & three letter agencies playin’ by the acre; and now the technocrats are comin’ for you data too… They left his body by the side of the road, Johnny Law pulled the trigger ’til he had to reload; and you can make a killing selling coffins so I’m told… Oh hey Siri, Bixby, Google please be frugal, and Cortana, baby, please I don’t wanna; Alexa be a dear and order me a pizza or two… [Chorus] What’s your reaction? Whooaah, what’s your reaction? Can you sell me your dissatisfaction? Stick your needle into this transaction… What’s your reaction? Show me your reaction? I’m in need of some human interaction, Don’t just sit there on the couch I need your ACTION! —— A group of boys in blue were walking the streets, in Dallas Texas just a keeping the peace; until a volley of bullets rained down from on high… An anti violence rally, now scattered through the alleys, They were duckin and dodging’ with no time to dalley; When the smoke had cleared, five heroes had lost their lives… And now with crosses of iron, topsy-turvy, they’re marching around lookin’ like they’ve got the scurvy; Tell me when this became the face of our town ? [Chorus] President Obama: "I believe that I speak for every single American when I say that we are horrified over these events, and that we stand united with the people... We will learn more, undoubtedly, about their twisted motivations. Let’s be clear: There is no possible justification for these kinds of attacks."

2018 proved every bit as interesting and difficult as the previous year. Having survived cancer and surgery, we now move into the land of incisional hernias, kidney stones, and pain.

I cover a lot of ground on this release, touching upon some of the hottest political topics of the present era, while still somewhat restrained ... there will be more to follow for sure! Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you, "Eve Of Destruction".
