Hey, you with a badge, and a gun, who imposes the law, don't break it, we the people know exactly what that badge, and that gun means (I can do anything to you, any time any way I feel like it) please, please don't, paranoia is not a good adviser, seek help before is to late for us.

Man… Marvin Gaye would be very displeased with what is going on in this world this day and age 7.16.16 We sure have not come along way have we!?

WAR is not the answer!

Whatever happened to 'one love'?!???

The same topics he sang about in the 1970s are still issues today, war, disparities between the haves, the have nots and the races. The good people are allowing the self-centere d , self-serving , and self-aggrand i z i n g people to steer the course of our collective destiny...th e outcome if we continue will not be good, we can do better and must! Love this MG song, rest in peace big brother.

Amen it IS changing. People are waking up from the mesmerizing effects of mass communicatio n and the bombardment of false information being diseminados by the Gov't.

Marvin Gaye was alway "awake" and aware
