Charles Bradley: Genius American Commentator


Charles Bradley, a 63 year old soul musician, has a great voice and a wonderful analysis of the steady demise of America. In his song  The World ( Is going up in flames), off his debut album No Time For Dreaming, he provides an analysis of what has become of American society and politics in very few words. He simply croons “This world is going up in flames and nobody wanna take the blame don’t tell me
how to live my life when you never felt the pain.” His ,while simple, words are right on the money and one part of the verse fits directly in line with what a person can say to Newt Gingrich.

See Newt Gingrich has been telling a lot of people how to live their life’s. He told the people of Occupy Wall Street to take bath and get a job. Or he told black people to stop collecting food aid and get a pay check. He doesn’t know these people and he doesn’t know the pain they’ve felt. He’s lived a nice little cozy life by getting money from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and by being a career politician. He doesn’t know anything about the woman who’s husband died in Iraq so now she has to collect welfare to feed her four children but, still he tells her to stop stealing other peoples money and get a job. He doesn’t know anything about the man who fell from the second story of a construction site and now suffers from sciatica and has little mobility in his neck and shoulders but, still he would suggest that man stop collecting food aid and demand a job. Not only does he not know these people and their pain but, how or where should these people get jobs.

Then there’s the other part of Charles’ first verse. He tells of a world where nobody is willing to admit they’re at fault. This s what is happening in congress. Republicans want to blame democrats and Obama for not fixing the economy, like that’s and easy task. Democrats want to blame republicans for ruining the economy, as if  republicans are the only ones at fault. And every one in between wants to blame every one who’s not in between. I just see a lot of political bashing and blaming other people for every body’s problems. It’s silly, really, but that’s the world we live in.
