The perfect theme song for The Green New Deal

Today I have been reading several things about The Green New Deal.  It is unbelievable that this program of utopian idealism is even being taken seriously. We might as well promise everyone a pet unicorn. It would require repealing the laws of nature and the laws of economics. It is fantasy. Yet, many are endorsing it. Most Democrat presidential candidate have endorsed it. If you notice closely however, many are endorsing a green new deal, rather than the Green New Deal. They are leaving themselves a lot of wiggle room to disavow their support for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's proposal.


Anyway, my reading about the Green New Deal made me think of the perfect theme song for the movement. Remember the movie O' Brother Where Art Thou? It featured an old country music song called Big Rock Candy Mountain. It is a hobo's idea of paradise. It has a line about "the handouts grow on bushes," and another about, "the sun shines everyday." I thought it had a line about, "the cars run on water," but I must have imagined that line, I can't find it. Anyway, this is the perfect themsong for The Green New Deal.
