Polish rap about public debt

Here's the google translation:

Telling the story of public debt. Call it cosmic debt you can send - no it's not a farce, for the money Pole on Mars. It is worth asking who the debt was inhaling, who pulled out of the problem. Who should be blamed for the state of things, And to whom harm to make amends . The problem is successive governments, implement the old social prejudices. There is no difference what party, always stealing tactic is this: milk the budget after the very bottom, PSL, PiS SLD and PO. Governance for them, twirling ice cream, try to leave no evidence. Sometimes, only someone somewhere wyczai, Minister before he got passed. The hole in the budget due to looting, Minister squandered, hair-raising. When the matter przecieknie to hostile media, They use other remedies then. enough regular beatings foam, adored the cross, the cross ridiculed. The people get steamed up on monuments, And no one who rob taxpayers. Young, educated and perhaps the reserve, tearing snout beneath the cross to raise VAT to forget. When I look at it, dent in my chair, I take the bass and the bass sweep. 2xREF.: When I play the bass, I like Poland a debt, as the government with impunity robs, you, me and the child neighbor. When the shaft bass, It's in the & *% # iam on you, dear populace called the government, let the bass strikes you shock. . .. Let the bass hurts you, hurts ... ZWR.: No, the chorus is not no threat, It is only a request and it's pretty godly. It is better for our country would have happened if the criminals in the government reduced to ashes. I explain, because I do not want to meet BOR -owików, when a cloud with the government's finger touches the wires. The hatred let me not suspect anyone, I love when the government governs wisely. It's not my fault that stupid rule, concentrate only on your own ass. would live better without the construction of eagles, all not only a friend of rabbits. The government so very well for us "is," One hundred and eighty billion in debt us. Thirty-three billion interest per year, therefore the debt is still growing. debt in full is seven hundred billion, and another ten will be on the tramps. Seven ten is a beautiful number, but not when it has to plod homeland. Because to give, even in good faith, that officer shall be paid the same amount. Excessive bureaucracy related to the debt, I'm going back to bass, because I do not like biurw. 2xREF.: When I play the bass, I like Poland a debt, as the government with impunity robs, you, me and the child neighbor. When the shaft bass, It's in the & *% # iam on you, dear populace called the government, let the bass strikes you shock. . .. Let the bass hurts you, hurts ... ZWR.: All governments have squandered a lot of money, our last one is probably the worst. charmed voters liberalism, it clearly made ​​a mistake with the social-statism. Rather than introduce economic freedom, significantly reduce bureaucracy, inefficiency. Lower taxes, eliminate premiums, the money order had no Social Security, only poor grandfather. On top of VAT, the lack of spending cuts, easily comes to raising taxes. They prefer to steal more than reform. They like to talk, wasting our time. Everything he promised our "wonderful" government, Ireland's second of nowhere. forgot that Ireland was well, the period when the taxes lowered. The government of mentally limited, instead of cutting spending, his paw into his pocket and our future generations wsadzają, No bastards have no scruples. For years, well do you remember , In the country everything is upside down. If it was not terrible it would be comical, I play the bass therapeutically. 2xREF.: When I play the bass, I think a debt like Poland, as the government with impunity robs, you, me and a neighbor child. When the shaft bass, It's in the & *% # iam on you, dear populace called the government, let the bass strikes shock you. ... Let the bass hurts you, hurts ...

Sunday Suggestion - Asnakech Worku

Thanks to Anthony P. for the excellent Sunday Suggestion! Asnakech Worku is a legendary Ethiopian musician with an incredible career spanning six decades (learn more here) Anthony P. is a most excellent father who loves climbing mountains, pretending he's an opera singer, and making brilliant political arguments, terrible political arguments, and sometimes specious political arguments. He's a brilliant historian, an enthusiastic outdoorsman, and the reason I know "Eric the Half a Bee." And when you say "suggestion," he says, "troubadours and minnesingers!" which means he's a pretty special dad. Happy father's day all you father followers. Suggest the next suggestion and you will find yourself lauded!

Sunday Suggestion - Alan Ginsberg reads America

This Sunday's Suggestion comes all the way from Erol Hofmans in the Hague! In 2008, Erol founded the Center for a World in Balance, and runs the monthly newsletter The Green Switch, both of which emphasize the inextricable interdependance of environmental sustainability and human rights. He also tells me he is in the midst of writing a novel, and that in my Watch This profile photo, I bear a striking resemblance to one of the main characters. In sum, Erol is a total baller (notice how "baller" has replaced the late 90's ubiquitous "pimp" as the best American slang word for "impressively to intmidatingly, industriously productive yet cavalierly cool dude"? i think we're getting somewhere...) who is maybe internet stalking me, which would be okay with me because he's bringing Watch This to the people of Europe while also initiating a Green revolution. And I'm kidding about the stalking, I think I just have one of those faces. Thanks for the suggestion Erol! and enjoy your Sunday video everyone!

Here are links to Erol's work:

Sunday Suggestion - Nadal picks a wedgie, slow mo

still in VA, but a computer has emerged! Gabriel, who says he already feels lauded for having been chosen as the Sunday Suggestion winner, indeed warrants more lauding. Gabriel looks great both at his most tan, and as his tan fades, and he is not only excellent at making suggestions, but also at convincing people to do the right thing at the right time.

Paul Pena singing his song Jet Airliner

Paul Pena is the subject of maybe the best (in its worstness) documentary ever to be nominated for an Oscar. It's called Genghis Blues (1999) and it's about Pena's journey to become a Tuvan throat singer.
