I Protest!!! Vigorously!!!!

  • Pink captures President Bush's callous disregard with heart-rending accuracy. This song makes me cry every time I hear it.
  • Jackson Brown's new song is fabulous! Lives in the Balance truly touches on the choices facing America today.
  • An Arlo Guthrie classic! You'd be amazed at how it fits our modern war ethics.
  • Bruce Hornsby's finest. We are treating the Katrina survivors the same way.
  • By Phil Ochs. Not what you'd think. He wrote it following the murder of three civil rights workers in the mid '60's. Still pertinent today, I fear.
  • This one's by Lindsay Buckingham. All hail the 4th estate!
  • Song by the late, great Harry Chapin. It references Vietman, but remains pithy.
  • By Bright Eyes. One of the best protest songs to come along in years.
  • From the musical, 1776.
    Check it out - the reference may be Revolutionary War era, but the sentiment rocks!

I had heard of this but never really knew much about it before.

It looks like they are all over the country.

Well...that seemed to work out nicely for you and your friend. I'm glad to see that it really worked...because I thought at first there would be a bad punchline to it...but it came through.

Larry - I hadn't heard about them until the co-worker told us. I was quite amazed. ...And when I picked up the food, no having to shop. That was nice:)

Sumo - So many times, there are negatives, but on the other hand there are positive experiences I like to tell about. This was definitely one. When I experience something such as this, it helps restore my faith in human nature.

The Fat Lady Sings

I'd never heard of this program. How wonderful that it exists! Way back when I was very, very poor - I'd get food from the local Food Pantry. They never had very much - but I was damn grateful nonetheless. I have always donated goods and food rather than money as a result. People never get the money - but they can make use of clothes, appliances and food stuffs. I donate pet food and toys to our vet and the local shelter as well. There was a time in my life when both myself AND my cats were living on rice! I’ve never forgotten that – and I don’t think I ever will. Hope all is well with you, my friend. You are in my thoughts.
