Chinese Democracy

Chinese Democracy?  What kind of oxymoron is that?  Well, it is the name of the latest album and single from aging rockers Guns ‘N Roses.  Guns ‘N Roses fans have been waiting for Chinese democracy since 1991, the year their last album was released.  Everyone else has been subjected to the propaganda of Mother China and are being forced to believe that Taiwan is a renegade province and not a democratic and sovereign country. Someone please tell the people in Taiwan that this isn’t some kind of terrible joke and their Chinese democracy is safe and sound.

Wouldn’t it be funny to see something like this?:

On a side note, Taiwan objects to the name Chinese democracy saying, “What about us… What are we chopped liver?!.  We have been a democracy since before Guns ‘N Roses were in diapers.  We object to the name and wish the album simply be called – Taiwan”.

Here are the lyrics form the song:

It don’t really matter
You’ll find out for yourself
No it don’t really matter
You’re gonna leave these thing to
Somebody else

If they missionaries
Real time visionaries
Sitting in a Chinese stew
To view my dis-infatu-ation
I know that I’m a classic case
Watch my disenchanted face
Blame it on the Falun Gong*
They’ve seen the end and
you can’t hold on now

Cause it would take a lot
more hate than you
To stop the fascination
Even with an iron fist
Our baby got to rule the nation
But all I got is precious time

It don’t really matter
You’re gonna find out for yourself
No it don’t really matter
So you can hear now from
Somebody else

Cause it would take a lot
more time than you
I’ve got more masturbation
Even with your iron fist
Our baby got to rule the
nation but all I got is
Precious time
Our baby got to rule the
nation but all I got is
Precious time

It don’t really matter
Gonna keep it to myself
No it don’t really matter
So you can hear it now from
Somebody else

You think you got it all locked up inside
And if you beat them all up they’ll die
Then you’ll walk them home for the cells
Then now you’ll dig for
your road back to hell
And with your ? makes you stop
As if your eyes were their
eyes you can tell
In your lack of time

After reading these lyrics it is obvious Axel Rose has been smoking way too much crack.
