Just a thought...
The vaudeville generals cavort on the stage
And shatter their audience with submachine guns
And Freedom and Violence the acrobat clowns
Do a balancing act on the graves of our sons
While the tapdancing Emperor sings "War is peace"
And Love the Magician disappears in the fun
And I wave goodbye to murder
And smile hello to the rain
...Tim Buckley 1967

How much do I know
To talk out of turn
You might say that I'm young
You might say I'm unlearned
But there's one thing I know
Though I'm younger than you
Even Jesus would never
Forgive what you do
Let me ask you one question
Is your money that good
Will it buy you forgiveness
Do you think that it could
I think you will find
When your death takes its toll
All the money you made
Will never buy back your soul
...Bob Dylan [Masters of War]

Cheers For Our Capitalistic Democratic Victory Over Evil
(Should be yelled with blind enthusiasm and naked fervor)
Take your pill and pay the bill,
don’t speak ill of those who kill.
Lean to the right, lean MORE to the right!
Stand up, sit down, fight! fight! fight!
Ding-dong, the wicked witch is dead! I see by the newspapers we’ve won! King George has slain the dragon, and we’re free, good God almighty, free at last! Free to be exploited by our own government, free to have our basic needs ignored, free to have our rights eroded, free to remain blind and ignorant in the name of national security...oh, wait a minute, that’s only in Iraq, right?

First light felt its way through the dark, gently rolling up the night like an old window shade. Jiohdi casually rubbed the sleep from his eyes, causing a billion billion stars to implode and give birth to time. But only the lion-tamer and the gypsy arose early enough to witness sundials sprouting like mushrooms amongst the rampant marigolds encircling the village green. Chained to the finite, waiting for the bright light, they politely delighted in the depths of night.
...Oh, sorry, wrong reality...
The war drags on...who would have thought 13 days would seem like 13 months? Who would have thought a wrong turn could end up so badly? Who would have thought Bush & Sons (formerly known as the United States), could have come up with such clever red, white and blue eye patches and ball gags? Check out “why?” in the links section for the current short-circuited logic behind justifying this “war of freedom”...
Remember what the dormouse said: “FEED YOUR HEAD.”

“Let me ask you over and over again my friend, how you don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction...”
Well, the Big Fool says to push on...and so it goes...are we having fun yet? How many dead Americans on TV will it take before we understand that violence is not the road to peace? Now it’s dozens of families baring their anguish, soon it will be hundreds. And how many Iraqis are never going to be liberated because they’re currently dead? The sadness doesn’t stop...the ignorance covers our eyes like a red, white and blue fog...Simper Fi, motherfucker!
