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!

Terrierman has a really nice post on Obama. See http://terriermandotcom.blogspot.com/2008/01/who-is-barack-obama.html and make sure you read the comments, too.

Thank you, Kabbage. I've yet to settle on whom to support, you know. Obama, Clinton, Edwards and the rest. No one speaks to all my concerns. Obama stirs the imagination, Edwards speaks with heart and Clinton is tough as shoe leather, ready to govern at the drop of a hat.

I must say I am glad Hillary won New Hampshire, however - especially after the drubbing she got by the MSM. Chris Matthews (AKA Tweety Bird) had it in for her in spades. The man’s obsessed. Nice to see him and all the others proved wrong. They were hitting her mostly on gender - and I cannot abide that paternalistic twaddle. It serves us all better to have the candidates talk more about their positions.

In general it seems so totally asinine that everyone seemed to expect the campaign to be over after one caucus. If we are going to pull that type of crap, why not have a two- or three-round election? First round, everybody who wants runs. Second round, the top X candidates or those who received over Y percent of the vote are eligible. Third round, if needed, similar type of format but the values of X and Y may change, and final winner is declared. If we can have annointed candidates after 1 or 2 primaries, then there is not much point in having primaries.

I agree. I must say though, I am really upset over all the Clinton bashing that's been going on of late. There is a misogynistic edge to most of it - and it has to stop. America needs Hillary Clinton and John Edwards as much as it does Barack Obama. All three people could work together to make America better. Instead, they paw and squabble - putting personal ambition ahead of what's best for our country. I hope it stops soon, or we'll end up with McCain or Romney for president! If that happens – I’m not sure America will ever recover.
