Gloves Off Why We Are 1000 Times Better off Now than Four Years Ago Rewritten 9/6/12

The reason we must be aggressive is to show the electorate 
that we are on to the GOP and their tricks
Every Democratic President since FDR has been the victim 
of vicious and unfounded GOP attack
Barack Obama perceived at the start that he was dealing
with the worst GOP attack ever waged
Not only did the GOP oppose Obama politically it determined to
disable the government to discredit him
On the night Obama was inaugurated he was betrayed by
Ryan Kyl Luntz Cantor and other GOP criminals
President Obama used every weapon he had to best the traitor
GOP but they remained subversive for four years
President Obama used a rope-a-dope strategy in hopes of 
eventually landing knockout blows as people awoke
Charlotte is awakening us all to the fact of the GOP
betrayal and its true agenda
The true agenda of the GOP is to earn money globally while 
neutering all domestic opposition
The GOP embrace of an offshoring candidate is simply a sign of 
how bald-faced their agenda is
GOP says why milk dumb Americans when we can
make thew whole world our oyster
We are better off than ever now because more and more
are waking up to the problem - it is called the criminal GOP

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …
