When you leave the country for good you take a part of it with you forever.
I play the march named that way every day although it is not for the CD. It is a railway march and it needs an orchestra in the open air. The old country was a railway country. The first sound I remember as a child was a train whistle. Nobody played that march at the station on the day of our departure and there were no crying women or soldiers waving hands through the doors. The evening was cold and we were standing under the shadow of the overpass in a frozen silence. The mist crawled from beneath a train, red and black from the sparks and coal- fed heaters of the carriages. It enveloped us, took us in and pushed us towards the river as if not just the train but the whole platform was on the way to the great bridge, the only one leading to the capital, to the airport, to the gate abroad, out, away forever.

This is no joke. The power of the media is enormous in the USA ad well as the Power of Perception. The black Sabbath of the Tea Party in Nashville, TN is now an official sign of the “movement’ and Sarah Palin, that unfortunate misfortune in the skirt will speak there. The game is afoot and country music will accompany the coven of the Witches, Y2010.
The tea-party of the USA is an artificial thing down to the core. The proof of its artificiality is its timing. Most of the factors they claim to fight against- big government, aggressive interference of the federal authorities into the life of the states, abuse of the government power, manipulation of the tax policy, total lying in Congress, etc. – all of those started under Reagan, blossomed under Bush Sr., had their way with us under Clinton, really flourished under W and are still here with us under Obama. But in vain we will try to find the tea-party patriots among the anti-war protesters whether in Clinton or Bush times or among those who refused to pay their taxes under W. Nope, they crawled from under their rock now, when in fact the big government is big only by name. Just imagine what Bush and his goons would have done if some stupid tea-party group would ‘march on Washington’ in say, 2002. BTW, they did not care that Bush stole the Y2000 elections at all. For some strange reason they are worried NOW if Obama is a legitimate President. Obama had not done even a tiny bit of the abuse that was done by Reagan- Bushie thread of parasites but Sarah Palin, that Reaganesque puppet will be the heroine of the day. Of the week? Of the month? Of the year?
When a fool tries to play wise all around laugh but when the wise tries to play a fool all around become suspicious. No, the tea-party is no joke. It is a Black Hundred.
