Because Don't Conservatives Oppose the Welfare State?

As I am not a conservative, I don't have a strong opinion about National Review's 50 Greatest Conservative Songs. But I am amazed that this didn't make the list:

Hang Fire
(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

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
Doo doo doo

Take a thousand dollars go have some fun
Put it all on at a hundred to one
Hang fire, hang fire, put it on the wire


  1. i can use this as a fire song too. i think i am a radical reactionary luddite. i have to decide whether to collect lots of signatures to get a friend on the ballot, or blow off the system entirely. need jomama's advice - to herd or not to herd. hmmm
