I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN MAKE IT * DAWSON SMITH * SCEPTER 12400 * USA
Dawson Smith sounds like a Country & Western singers name, but this cat is as Funky as they come (click on the record to hear) but what he's singing about could easily be found in Country & Western or any form of quality Popular music: the economy, and how it is controlled by financial and political elites that always seem to keep the vast majority of people in (relative) penury.
Occasionally these money men and their running dogs: the politicians, mess up big time. In the last half century the economy in the UK has experienced these troubled economic times. Firstly with Leonard James Callaghan, aka 'Jim' Callaghan, who, as Chancellor of the Exchequer of Labour government from 1964 to 1967, failed to master a balance of payments deficit resulting in the devaluation of the pound sterling. Despite this catastrophic failure he was not sacked, and like 99% of failed public sector workers, was given another top job as Home Sectary! But this wasn't to be the last the British public would have to endure the incompetent 'Sunny Jim' as Home Sectary he took responsibility for renegotiating the terms of Britain's membership of the EUSSR or Common Market as it was generally known back then, that the great white traitorous slug: the 'Conservative' Prime Minister Edward 'Ted' Heath, who also brought in another weapon in the armory of global money men: decimalization. 'Big Jim's' final act in power, (by now the failure had become Prime Minister!) was the 'Winter of Discontent', leaving the country bankrupt and known as 'The sick man of Europe, which prompted the leader of the incoming Conservative government, Margaret Thatcher, to say "The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money". A truism that was especially apt of the previous New Labour administration under Blair and the unbelievably incompetent Gorgon Brown that over a period of thirteen years not only sold off the British gold reserves at a discount but after spending all the money in the treasury went on an electioneering spend fest, an economic scorched earth policy, by conjuring up money from the 'magic money tree' (quantitative easing); and who's chief secretary of the Treasury, the smug faced Liam Byrne, left a note on his desk for his successor which said "there's no money left".
