Franchising boasts the truthfulness of its least sincere bottom-feeder

Success propaganda this time quoted on Blue MauMau from an email from


Franchises have over a 90% success rate, compared to about a 15% success rate for those individuals starting their own business from scratch.

A bald-faced lie.

If I had a Rocket Launcher, Bruce Cockburn at Live 8 concert, introduced by Dan Aykroyd in, Barrie, Canada, 2005

Here comes the helicopter — second time today
Everybody scatters and hopes it goes away
How many kids they’ve murdered only God can say
If I had a rocket launcher(3x)… I’d make somebody pay

I don’t believe in guarded borders and I don’t believe in hate
I don’t believe in generals or their stinking torture states
And when I talk with the survivors of things too sickening to relate
If I had a rocket launcher(3x)…I would retaliate

On the Rio Lacantun, one hundred thousand wait
To fall down from starvation — or some less humane fate
Cry for Guatemala, with a corpse in every gate
If I had a rocket launcher(3x)…I would not hesitate

I want to raise every voice — at least I’ve got to try
Every time I think about it water rises to my eyes.
Situation desperate, echoes of the victims cry
If I had a rocket launcher(3x)…Some son of a bitch would die
