I haven’t written much about Citizens United and the lethal impact that infamous Supreme Court decision has had on our already tainted political process. Nothing I could have written would have driven the point home as colorfully as this music video by Los Angeles-based music writer, singer and producer Eric Schwartz. Please take a few minutes to listen to it. (I haven’t heard the other pieces on the CD so can make no claims about their content. I do know he assertively pushes the envelope, so be forewarned.)
Full disclosure: this is personal for me. As a sweet and adorable kid, Eric used to shovel our driveway. Now he’s grown up, wise, talented, and often very funny, and he has a lot to say (usually in rather raunchy, ribald and definitely non-PC language) about the world my generation has left him. If you like this particular video and care about our money-defined election system, please send it on to your young friends who think it’s not important to vote in the mid-term elections.
