Seems appropriate for 2011 America

This was written about the economic wasteland of early 1980s England when it was mired in socialism’s failures.

“Hang Fire”
The Rolling Stones
1982

In the sweet old country where I come from
Nobody ever works
Yeah nothing gets done
We hang fire, we hang fire
You know marrying money is a full time job
I don’t need the aggravation
I’m a lazy slob
I hang fire, I hang fire
Hang fire, put it on the wire
We’ve got nothing to eat
We got nowhere to work
Nothing to drink
We just lost our shirts
I’m on the dole
We ain’t for hire
Say what the hell
Say what the hell, hang fire
Hang fire, hang fire, put it on the wire
Here’s ten thousand dollars go have some fun
Put it all on at a hundred to one
Hang fire, hang fire, put it on the wire

Of course, Margaret Thatcher and the Tories won a landslide victory in 1983, and their return to capitalism and aggressive privatization of nationalized industries triggered an economic boom.
Hmmm …
