People Power: End Trump’s Administration With A New Social Media Platform

By Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

Now, let me get some things out of the way. I like to daydream. A lot. A whole lot. I like to daydream in a pure, impractical manner. Also, I have no money, can’t code and don’t really see it as my “function” in life. Having said all that, let me again say that we need a new social media platform designed specifically to aid in protests against Donald Trump.

I think we we should design a platform from the ground up that would be designed to specifically to make it easier for people to engage in massive protests across the country with the aim of bringing down Trump. Later, after you were successful, you could flip the switch and turn the service into at least a Reddit Killer and maybe even a Twitter Killer.

One reason we need to do this is we are lurching towards of codification of Trumpism at the state level, so it may grow ever more difficult for us to bring down the Trump Administration at all. If you’re all that interested in learning more about this contact me on Twitter and I’ll write more posts about this.

In my imagination, you could probably crowdfund this concept and then move from there. But maybe Trump has to do something really bad, like fire Bob Mueller before there will be any interest in this concept. But it’s something to think about. Something big needs to be done on a concerted level to bring down Trump.

I have explain at length on my Instagram account the specs for this concept. The account is under my name.

Anyway, it’s something to think about.

‘Nightmare’ — #Lyrics To A Woke Power Ballad

This is a political homage to Pearl Jam’s “Black.” This is about the election of Donald Trump as president.

Nightmare
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner

please give credit if you produce or perform

the night creeped forward
we had no idea what to expect
but the Comey letter had its affect
not we’re dealing with a dream
a nightmare really
that’s lasted for months now
when will it end
when will it end

we’re going to wake up one day
we all know it’s true
our love for country is too strong
this can’t go on forever
we can only hope that something will change
sooner rather than later

when will we wake up from this nightmare
that’s what I ask
when will we wake up from this nightmare
I gasp
when will we wake up from this nightmare
that’s what I ask
when will we wake up from this nightmare
I gasp

there doesn’t seem to be any hope now
the walls are closing in
closing in, closing in
but we can only hope for a change
Mueller’s team is on the case
when will they arrive
I scream into the night

the darkness of this nightmare
seems forever
seems like it won’t ever break
seems like the day will never come
but we have to believe it will

when will we wake up from this nightmare
that’s what I ask
when will we wake up from this nightmare
I gasp
when will we wake up from this nightmare
that’s what I ask
when will we wake up from this nightmare
I gasp

[bridge]
what happens next
is anyone’s guess
what if we learn the truth
and we just shrug
what will happen then
is there any hope?

we have to be strong
we have to believe
that there’s a chance
a chance in three
that Lady Liberty will rise again
rise again and be free

‘Thoughts & Prayers’ — #Lyrics To A Woke Power Ballad

The music to this would be a homage to U2’s Love Is Blindness. Again, I’m just screwing around. I’m in the mood to tell stories in verse, so you get this. This should fade soon enough.

Thoughts & Prayers
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

thoughts and prayers
come and go don’t you know
they don’t mean anything anymore
they just stop progress it seems
they make it more difficult for us
more difficult for us to act

thoughts and prayers
there’s not much they can do
we’re all animals locked in a zoo
the powers that be
make us feel like sheep
when yet another child is struck dead
from a weapon bought by a manman
legally, legally, legally, legally

thoughts and prayers
thoughts and prayers
thoughts and prayers
how do we stop the next killing
when all we do is offer, offer, offer
thoughts and prayers, thoughts and prayers

we need to act
need to do something for once
we have to believe in love
give hate a shove
our politicians are bought and paid for
it seems
when will we glean the truth
bring truth the sundlight
give us hope that is bright

thoughts and prayers
thoughts and prayers
thoughts and prayers
how do we stop the next killing
when all we do is offer, offer, offer
thoughts and prayers, thoughts and prayers

[bridge]
just give me some hope
give me a chance
that this isn’t our last gasp
let’s grasp hope for once
and do more than offer
thoughts and prayers

we’re all in this together
you know it’s true
why can we move past
move past for once
thoughts and payers
thoughts and prayers
thoughts and prayers

‘Good Guy With A Gun’ — #Lyrics To A Woke Country-Pop Song

This is a homage to Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Saturday Night Special. It seems odd to believe that there was the possibility of an anti-gun country rock song. But it exists. The music to these lyrics would be like that.

Good Guy With A Gun
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

they tell me that the cure
to all our problems
is a good guy with a gun
but I can only tell you
tell you true as can be
that the answer to our woe
ain’t more guns, that’s for sho

good guy with a gun
ain’t gunna fix nothing
good guy with a gun
is just a scam
we need to fix this problem
yes ma’am

good guy with a gun
good guy with a gun
don’t screw this one up son
good guy with a gun
isn’t the way to run

it seems like
every day we got more death on the TV
too many people are dying let me tell you
too many people shot down in the prime of life
at church, at the concert, God knows where else

good guy with a gun
good guy with a gun
don’t screw this one up son
good guy with a gun
isn’t the way to run

[bridge]
good guy with a gun ain’t the cure
it’s just a part of the problem
let me set things right
we need more control
more control of the guns we got
that’s for sure, right?

women and children shot dead
every time of day
when is this going to fade away
into the night
when are we going to stop hoping
that a good guy with a gun
will set things right

‘Army Of Spies’ — #Lyrics To A Woke Rock Song

This is about Harvey Weinstein scandal. It’s supposed to be an old school Radiohead type of song. That’s the vibe for the music I’m looking for, at least.

Army Of Spies
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

Asia didn’t want his advances
it was a land war she couldn’t win
but he demanded she pay tribute
she got it in the end
she screamed for help
but it was too late
his army of spies
were for to move on

an army of spies
surrounded his every move
demanded the victims stay silent
you could see it in their eyes
he could touch all the thighs he wanted
but the army of spies were there

army of spies
no one can resist
the army of spies
army of spies
close your thighs
the army of spies is here

no one wanted to believe
that he could be such a creep
but there’s no doubt about it
we’re all sheep it seems
when power gets in the way
we’re all just going to cry
cry the night away

army of spies
no one can resist
the army of spies
army of spies
close your thighs
the army of spies is here

[bridge]
we’re all helpless until we’re not
the fear can tie us in a knot
but hope is always around the corner
maybe the army of spies will be defeated
maybe not

there’s only hope in the end
when he comes at you with a leer
and an evil grin
he waits to pounce
hoping you’ll lie as he gropes
and pouts
but the power of one
can defeat
the army of spies
the army of spies
the army of spies

‘Do Something’ — #Lyrics To A Woke Pop-Rock Song

This would be a homage to Deep Purple’s Smoke On The Water. No one cares about my lyrics, so I’m doing this for myself. It’s relaxing.

Do Something
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

the president was unhinged
he wanted it way
he wanted it way in vain
thought Justice was his to service
so he awoke and began to tweet

somebody do something
do something
do something
somebody do something
do something
do something

he didn’t want anyone in his way
he want to rule the land like a king
so he shouted into the void
what he wanted to happen
he wanted someone to
do something
do something
do something
do something

people were aghast at his words
this was not the America we love
what is going down
why is the president acting like a clown
what is going on
why do we have to live through his
why doesn’t someone
do something
do something
do something

somebody do something
do something
do something
somebody do something
do something
do something

[bridge]
it’s too easy for us
to easy for us to believe
that we’re all doomed
and that no one will listen
if we take to the streets en masse
maybe things will change

somebody do something
do something
do something
somebody do something
do something
do something

‘Courtin'” — #Lyrics To Pop-Rock Song

No one cares about any my lyrics, but I’m in the mood, so there you go. This would be a peppy pop-rock song.

Courtin’
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

she’s as cute as can be
but I ask the Lord above
is she interested in me at all
or do I need to give fate a shove?

all I can say is
we’re courtin’
we’re courtin’
we’re courtin’
maybe
maybe
maybe
or maybe not

she’s a total babe
maybe me want to behave
makes me want to be a better man
at least, that’s the plan
she may have a man
but before it’s over
we’ll be courtin’

wish she’s be mine
mine and mine alone
but what can I do
knowing she’ll go home
to another guy tonight
but before it’s over
I hope we’ll be courtin’

all I can say is
we’re courtin’
we’re courtin’
we’re courtin’
maybe
maybe
maybe
or maybe not

[bridge]
she’s just my type
she lives up to the hype
but she’s got a man
so that breaks the plan

she’s a babe
totally, totally, totally
it’s true
wish she’d be mine
before this day is through
then we’d be courtin’
then we’d be courtin’
then we’d be courtin’

V-log: We Are Rushing Towards A Dark & Troubling Future #DPRK #TrumpRussia

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

Any normal president would seriously thinking of giving a national speech apologizing for TrumpRussia. But Trump is not a normal president. And TrumpRussia is not a normal scandal. The only thing I can of that will allow Trump to survive this scandal is a major war in Northeast Asia.

I don’t know what happens next. I just don’t know.
