Guest Amarals dream in America a Bust

THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND

words and music by Woody Guthrie

Chorus:

This land is your land, this land is my land

From California, to the New York Island

From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters

This land was made for you and me

As I was walking a ribbon of highway

I saw above me an endless skyway

I saw below me a golden valley

This land was made for you and me

Chorus

I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footsteps

To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts

And all around me a voice was sounding

This land was made for you and me

Chorus

The sun comes shining as I was strolling

The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling

The fog was lifting a voice come chanting

This land was made for you and me

Chorus

As I was walkin' - I saw a sign there

And that sign said - no tress passin'

But on the other side .... it didn't say nothin!

Now that side was made for you and me!

Chorus

In the squares of the city - In the shadow of the steeple

Near the relief office - I see my people

And some are grumblin' and some are wonderin'

If this land's still made for you and me.

Chorus (2x)

Guest Far Out, Man!

Good Luck, Manny! Keep up the fight! You stayed when everyone else left, so you should be rewarded and be part of the redevelopment.

On a side not, don't forget the immortal words of Woody's son, Arlo Guthrie:

You can get anything you want

At Alice's Restaurant

You can get anything you want....

At Alice's Restaurant

Walk right in,

Its around the back.

Just a half a mile

from the railroad track.

You can get anything you want

At Alice's Restaurant!

They were concluded with the Council voting for the Redevelopment when suprisingly the only people who showed up spoke for and not against the redevelopment!

There is a political gap between the people and the truth

Yeah, and Amaral, Adler, and those fighting the redevelopment missed the boat in 1998 when one of them attended the public meetings at the Council or Planning Board! I know, I was there, were you? I didn't see Fernandez and his father-in-law Milan VOTED FOR IT!!! The TRUTH is stranger than FICTION!!!!!

Where were you in 1998? I was still in high school, now I am paying for the sins of the idiots who gathered to decide Harrison Future. If the state constitution is a living document, why isn't the redevelopment plan?

If Amaral & Adler had smart lawyers, they would put an endangered cockroach in the basement of his place and claim the project would harm an endangered species. Just tell the court the bug doesn't want to move. They could tie up the project in the courts for years.

'one' little problem.... I don't think a cockroach is considered an 'endangered species' at this present time. find another species that is 'almost ' extinct and put it in there.

The March 7th edition of the Observer has a very interesting article about these two men trying to manipulate the system for more money. They got caught in their own lies, deceit, and now are exposed for what they really are! CASE CLOSED.
