Time to get our heads right

So much shit. Who do you trust? Which way is up?...Up, down, right, left....

Did we torture? Yes, we did but was it legal?
Fuck you, it WAS against the law!

No, you dirty damn hippie, our lawyers wrote the magic memo! It was legal, kinda.
Besides, we had too! The evil Brown People were coming to make us all Muslim!

The give and take between the right and the left is getting shrill. This is just the torture memos. Health care is on the table now and we have some of our own party blocking single payer insurance. The corporate whores of the for-profit health care industry, the insurance industry, and the pharmaceutical companies are no-holds barred trying to woo Dems away from Obama's original plan.

The battles are on many fronts today. Too many to count and too many to mount much opposition. Our personal windmills are being pushed into the background as the MSM determines what story should be foremost on the news. This means my issues of affordable health care and decriminalized marijuana take a back seat to Miss California's tits.

So, I give you a moment of zen. A musical Valium to wrap your head around the situation and get a new perspective. This video takes us back to a time when the country was in chaos like now. Different time, different war, different players but the shit was just as deep. Then, as now, music was our channel to truth. Or at least the seeds of it.

I will update this post in a few. Work is calling and I have to bring home my meager slice of bacon. Enjoy the trip!

So Mote It Be,
David A,

Ahhh...memories....such sweet memories!

Well...except for that other war back then.....but the music(and the good weed)helped take away that sting.

I was browsing a book yesterday, one called "Emotional Bullshit" wherein a counselor talks about how "Denial, Delusion, and Blame" destroy relationships...and nations. While I am not sure I am on board with his ideas of a fix, I think his diagnosis is spot on. And it certainly applies to the lather the Right is in over the torture issue!

Some good news, the Right is shrinking faster than my dick in a public pool in December.
The hard core sonsabitches are still out there screaming at the top of their lungs to a shrinking audience.

Dick "Fucking" Cheney is getting closer and closer to being arrested and tried for torturing people and Newt Gingrich is still a fucking asshole.

I just stumbled on a piece you wrote that gave me a bit of credit for helping my neighbor by using Technorati, thank you for the kind words.

Labrys, I fucked up.
