Frolicking daughters & gamboling dogs on the white house lawn in shadow of TPP

We have images of frolicking daughters & gamboling dogs on the white house lawn and that's all very nice & v. sweet but her Democratic husband was the shepherd and pushed along the secretive power transfer called the TPP. 

Where is even a sprinkle of the hope & change? & where are the results? By their fruits you shall know them. The fruit of Clinton-ism was Nafta and Obama's fruit is the TPP.  So voting Democrat is not that great in the end, is it?

Einsteins definition of insanity is doing the same thing over & over and expecting a different result.  Is n't that what the pattern of voting for the the lesser of two evil parties gets? Nothing. Same result - so why do the same thing over again this year?
The TPP shores up and transfers power to those who already have way too much of it allowing them to be the Rule makers. It has been described as a Corporate Trojan Horse.

Protest Songs & Protest Singers

Protest Songs:  Have you heard people complain that they don't hear any protest songs. Even songwriter people say 'where are the protest singers?' The Minotaur By John Munnelly

Where is justice?  The times they are definitely a changing' and music has changed into a business first of all and maybe the musicians too are more about a career and fame than art and culture making.
Was it same choice politically in the 60s? I think it probably was, as WEB Du Bois said and I likely paraphrase here; they are the "same party with two names". But …

Song­Writer John Munnelly Releases “Hilarious” song about Brooklyn Hipsters & Gentrifiers 
By John Munnelly: July 7th, 2015 
“Brooklyn” takes a jokey lyrical poke at hipster culture but in a fond electro-pop-folk way. NEW YORK CITY – Don't say anything around a songwriter, it’s said; they will take something you say & make it into a song. Just ask Taylor Swifts exes! For local award winning social justice songwriter John Munnelly, he took a voice coming from his TV and made her the narrator of his new song. “I was sitting there on the sofa hearing the voice of a girl with a mandolin or ukulele and I immediately heard what could be the start of her song.” The pop­ electronica ­folk song opens up with the narrator at an open mic pouring out her heart earnestly to the ‘pretty boys and tattooed girls’
Kids are having a tough time finding their place today and gravitating to Brooklyn as a place to live out their hipster longings. 



With comedic wit, this song expresses some of…
