"If I Had A Rocket Launcher," by Bruce Cockburn
[Here comes the helicopter -- second time today
Everybody scatters and hopes it goes away
How many kids they've murdered only God can say
If I had a rocket launcher...I'd make somebody pay
I don't believe in guarded borders and I don't believe in hate
I don't believe in generals or their stinking torture states
And when I talk with the survivors of things too sickening to relate
If I had a rocket launcher...I would retaliate
On the Rio Lacantun, one hundred thousand wait
To fall down from starvation -- or some less humane fate
Cry for guatemala, with a corpse in every gate
If I had a rocket launcher...I would not hesitate
I want to raise every voice -- at least I've got to try
Every time I think about it water rises to my eyes.
Situation desperate, echoes of the victims cry
If I had a rocket launcher...Some son of a bitch would die]

Hey, we have cold here in FL too.
Don't move here.
We got no jobs ("With Florida's unemployment rate stubbornly hovering around 12 percent, it's hard not to get discouraged."}.
No $ ("A chorus of legislators from both parties blasted Gov. Charlie Crist's $69.2 billion budget proposal as an unreliable plan — akin to a family banking on winning the lottery to pay the monthly bills").
With Ponzi sceme housing bubble blowing up got no prospects ("Miami-Dade, the epicenter of the national housing bust. This is the epicenter because the politics all lined up here first, in the rush to convert farmland and open space to suburban sprawl")).
Pic unabashedly stolen from Cogitamus.

From photo gallery of "obscenely caloric foods," in the Orlando Sentnel used without permission under Fair Use Doctrine because of public health concerns.
OMG, great jumpin' Jehosaphat's ghost, why would anyone deep fry a cheeseburger?
While not a food Nazi and eating more fruits and vegetables than ever before because of my gout, I still enjoy a bacon bleu cheese burger from neighborhood pub, Johnny's Fillin' Station. made with 100% USDA grade A beef, not that pre-processed pablum McDonald's uses.
Unholy Crap, literally, the high calorie and high fat "food" foisted upon US and rest of the world will take years off our lives.
McDonald's Chicken nuggets have so many calories and so much fat that an average female would have to have 9.6 hours of vigorous sex to work all that off.
Hmmm, sounds like a great marketing campaign, eat more McDonald's and have more sex. Maybe I could trademark that.
Bite me McDonald's, satire has constitutional protection as free speech.
