Steve: You’re listening to Jonesy’s Jukebox. On the radio.
You know all that stuff that happened a little while ago in England, them guys were going to blow the planes up, did you hear about that?
Mr. Shovel: Yeah, yeah I did.
Steve: Because of that, now you can’t take toothpaste and…
Mr. Shovel: Hair gel…
Steve: …water…basically, next you’re going to have to go on naked. The next time there’s a scare, like, you can’t wear clothes. I personally, I’m a big conspiracist theory-ist and I think that was something that was manufactured, you know, like, what do they call it, “staged”. I think the whole thing was staged, to be honest with you. To keep the people feared-up, to keep you believing in, you know, give a good reason to keep going on with this war.
Mr. Shovel: Yeah, and when it happened, I heard people…you go right back to that, “Let’s throw everybody out of the country” mentality.
Steve: Yeah. Exactly. You get “feared” and that’s the name of the game, you know. That’s my, that’s my take on it. When I first heard that, I thought that it was like, something didn’t seem right. I dunno. I’m not a political person, I’m just going with my gut and my gut told me it was a phony situation. Because, you know, there’s nothing happens for a while, you start…even, even the most ardent supporter of the war or whatever, starts thinking, “Well, why are we doing this war?” and so you have to have a little jolt now every now and again to make you think, “Oh that’s why we’re in the war cos there was going to be a bunch of Muslims going to blow up a bunch of planes, but we caught ‘em.
Mr. Shovel: But it’s so completely upside-down and backwards because being in the war is actually making it more likely that that will happen again.
Steve: Right. Well, it’s all ass-backwards. Everything’s ass-backwards. You know, worried about, you know, foreigner’s oil, people who hate you, buying oil off people who hate you, supposedly…well, that seems like real, that they’re not too keen on us in America and the West, Muslims in the Arab lands, it seems like they don’t like you but we buy oil off ‘em, to pay for the…we’re paying, we’re paying for the war both ways, we’re paying it for the oil and we’re spending the money to kill ‘em, too. It don’t make no sense. You know what I mean? Get rid of the oil. You know? Don’t need it. Think of other ways. There is other ways, we just need to get smart and get on board of other ways to create an energy.
Mr. Shovel: “But Steve, it’s not about the oil, they don’t like our way of life. They don’t like the fact that we’re free!”
Steve: Right. Okay. That’s my tuppence today. “Jonesy’s Tuppence. Brought to you by Helio. And now we’re going to play Kiss. Take it away, Mr. Shovel.”
