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!

It is a day we will never forget, nor will we ever forget those who lost their lives and their families who grieve.

God bless us all.

The Fat Lady Sings

For me, 9/11 is emotional - turbulently so. I was watching when the second plane hit the towers. It was like all the air sucked out of the room. My neighbor ran over sobbing, everyone who was still home came outside; as if they expected the sky to fall. My friend from Saudi Arabia called to apologize, begging me not blame the Muslim religion over the actions of a few insane assholes. I own 9/11, as does every American – especially those of us alive that day.

So I am offended – mortally so - that George Bust saw this seminal incident as a political tool. He used it to establish an imperial presidency; to codify his brand of religious claptrap through exclusion and demonization. To imply that 9/11 was some sort of god-induced political test angers me past reason. The man is a shit, along with all who slaver after him. 9/11 is to America what Pearl Harbor was, or the burning of the White House by the British. To Bush 9/11 was an opportunity – and that makes him as evil as the bastards who attacked us outright – more so in some ways. Al-Qaeda killed people and dismantled buildings. George Bush has dismantled our constitution; and that’s much worse in my book. It’s an attack of the spirit, the principal of America itself. We can wage war on Al-Qaeda. What the fuck do we do to reclaim our liberty?
