How often do you hear stand up comics, or anyone for that matter, telling the truth about the JFK assassination?

So, is it a coincidence that a high visibility performer who says such things about the government dies of pancreatic cancer at 32? Dunno. But I wonder.

Maybe you should ask Bob Marley that question.Oh wait,he died at age 36 from cancer he supposedly got from an injured toe.:hmmmm:

Bingo. Two outspoken enemies of the regime turn into very young corpses.

Marley survived an earlier assassination attempt when a gunman broke into his house and shot everyone there two days before his scheduled appearance at the very political Smile Jamaica concert: http://www.slangon.com/blog/?p=231

I suppose it would have been too obvious to use a gun on him a second time. Instead he was given the boot...

Yes Myra the boot.Here is Bob singing about the shooting.Is their anyway you can add this video to the Bob Marley play list?

Ambush In The Night
(Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, ooh-wa!)
See them fighting for power (ooh-wee, ooh-wee, ooh-wa!),
But they know not the hour (ooh-wee, ooh-wee, ooh-wa!),;
So they bribing with their guns, spare-parts and money,
Trying to belittle our
Integrity now.
They say what we know
Is just what they teach us;
And we're so ignorant
'Cause every time they can reach us (shoobe, doo-wa)
Through political strategy (shoo-be, doo-wa);
They keep us hungry (shoobe, doo-wa),
And when you gonna get some food (shoobe, doo-wa),
Your brother got to be your enemy, we-e-ell!

Ambush in the night,
All guns aiming at me;
Ambush in the night,
They opened fire on me now.
Ambush in the night,
Protected by His Majesty.
Ooh-wee, ooh-wee. Ooh-wa-ooh!
(Ooh-wee) Ooh-wee, ooh-wee (ooh-wa), Ooh-wa!
Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, ooh wa-ooh!
Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, ooh wa-ah!

Well, what we know
Is not what they tell us;
We're not ignorant, I mean it,
And they just cannot touch us;
Through the powers of the Most-I (shoobe, doo-wa),
We keep on surfacin' (shoobe, doo-wa);
Thru the powers of the Most-I (shoobe, doo-wa),
We keep on survivin'.

Yeah, this ambush in the night
Planned by society;
Ambush in the night;
They tryin' to conquer me;
Ambush in the night
Anyt'ing money can bring;
Ambush in the night
Planned by society;
Ambush in the night -

Ohmygod! I had no idea he performed a song about the shooting. Thank you Keith! Holy cow...

Sure. I'll add it to the playlist. We (Maggie help!) should put it on our youtube channel.
