DOW PLUNGES 1000 POINTS, HFT ( HIGH FREQUENCY TRADING ) & IT’S SUNDOWN ON THE UNION

http://fora.tv/embedded_player




Well, my shoes, they come from $ingapore
My flashlight’s from Taiwan
My tablecloth’s from Malaysia
My belt buckle’s from the Amazon
You know, this shirt I wear comes from the Philippines
And the car I drive is a Chevrolet
It was put together down in Argentina
By a guy makin’ thirty cents a day
Well, it’s sundown on the union
And what’s made in the U.S.A.
Sure was a good idea
‘Til greed got in the way

“Union Sundown” is a political protest song against imported consumer goods and greed. It displays Dylan’s penchant and ability to take a concept and examine it from every angle in a single song, discussing the greed and power of corporations

“You know capitalism is above the law,/ It don’t count unless it sells./ When it costs too much to build it at home you just build it cheaper someplace else.” … “Democracy don’t rule this world,/ You better get that through your head./ This world is ruled by violence…”,

the hypocrisy of Americans who complain about the lack of American jobs while not paying more for American-made products .

“Lots of people complainin’ that there is no work./I say, ‘Why you say that for? When nothin’ you got is U.S.-made? They don’t make nothin’ here no more”,

the complicity of the unions themselves

“While the union’s a big business fan/And they’re goin’ down like a dinosaur.”,

and the desperate conditions of the foreign workers who make the goods

“All the furniture, it say ‘Made in Brazil,’/ Where a women she slaved for sure,/ Bringin’ home 30 cents a day to her family of twelve,/ You know that’s a lot of money to her.” …

“And a man’s going to do what he has to do,/ When he’s got a hungry mouth to feed.”

wednesday night underwear sessions,

Well, you know, lots of people complainin’ that there is no work.
I say, “Why you say that for
When nothin’ you got is U.S.-made?”
They don’t make nothin’ here no more,
You know, capitalism is above the law.
It say, “It don’t count ‘less it sells.”
When it costs too much to build it at home
You just build it cheaper someplace else.

Well, it’s sundown on the union
And what’s made in the U.S.A.
Sure was a good idea
‘Til greed got in the way.

Well, the job that you used to have,
They gave it to somebody down in El Salvador.
The unions are big business, friend,
And they’re goin’ out like a dinosaur.
They used to grow food in Kansas
Now they want to grow it on the moon and eat it raw.
I can see the day coming when even your home garden
Is gonna be against the law.

Well, it’s sundown on the union
And what’s made in the U.S.A.
Sure was a good idea
‘Til greed got in the way.

Democracy don’t rule the world,
You’d better get that in your head.
This world is ruled by violence
But I guess that’s better left unsaid.
From Broadway to the Milky Way,
That’s a lot of territory indeed
And a man’s gonna do what he has to do
When he’s got a hungry mouth to feed.

Well, it’s sundown on the union
And what’s made in the U.S.A.
Sure was a good idea
‘Til greed got in the way.
