WARNING, POLITICAL CRUD ALERT

As my parents have long suspected, I'm a Commie Pinko. Which is to say, I think this war is bullshit. I think our president is a complete fucktard and a thief. I think his advisors are the scariest bunch of maniacal puppet string-pullers ever assembled.

(In case you missed it, there weren't any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, a country that had nothing to do with the September 11 terrorist attacks. Just sayin'.)

Anyhow.

Neil Young agrees with me. And he made a record about it. And he wants you to hear it. And sign a petition saying that Congress should only allocate the money Bush is requesting if he agrees to bring the troops home by the end of the year. To hear the new record and sign the petition, click here. (the player's a little buggy--I could only get it to play the first song, but I'm guessing they'll fix it)

for those of you who are going to say "Neil Young is Canadian, so he should just shut the fuck up" I say this: he's been a tax-paying, voting US citizen since the late 60's. And this war reaches far beyond the boundaries of US politics, wouldn't you say?

so yeah, dig it.

In a recent interview, Neil said "we don't all have to believe what our president believes to be patriotic." It thoroughly disgusted (and scared) me when, at the start of the war, I posted on an online forum "Am I the only one who thinks this isn't the best idea?" I was called a traitor, unpatriotic, a Commie, and it was recommended that I should move to Iraq. Because I disagreed with the choices of the president of the country and his handlers. Am I the only one who was required to study the Constitution in school? Did everyone miss the whole point of that document, and the reason why we HAVE this country?

I DO support the troops, people. THAT'S WHY I DON'T WANT THEM TO KEEP GETTING KILLED. Is this such a difficult idea to grasp?

I better stop before my blood boils. Seriously.

Topic for discussion

Following a discussion on a nerdy internet message board I frequent, I pose to you, my faithful readers, the following question:

Is Teenage Jesus and the Jerks the best band name ever?

I'm inclined to say yes.

I await your responses.
