CD Review: Neil Young is Living With War

The new Neil Young album Living With War has created a firestorm of controversy, and it isn’t even in record stores yet. The latest word on that seems to suggest a soft release date of May 8, which would put the CD in stores by this Monday or Tuesday — the day most retail outlets adhere to as a rule.

In any event, for those of you who can’t wait, the good news is the album has been available to listen to free, in streaming format, at a number of places on the Internet since last Friday.

Controversy over the lyrical content aside — and we promise to get to that in a minute — Living With War is pretty much your standard, cranked to eleven, grungy Neil Young album. Although the sound here harkens back to classics like Rust Never Sleeps and Ragged Glory, Crazy Horse — the band usually backing Neil on these types of records — is nowhere to be found here.

Instead, Living With War was recorded with a core group of musicians consisting of Young himself on electric guitar, vocals and harmonica; Chad Cromwell on drums; and Rick Rosas on bass. They are occasionally joined by Tommy Bray on trumpet (most notably on the title track and “Shock and Awe”), and a 100-member choir (on “Let’s Impeach The President” and the beautiful, hymn-like version of “America The Beautiful”, which closes the album).

As a result, Living With War is not only the loudest album Neil Young has done since he was backed by Pearl Jam on Mirror Ball — it is also the tightest.

The long extended jams of those records with Crazy Horse are replaced here by ten shorter, more straightforward sounding songs that get directly to the point. But make no mistake, the volume is cranked all the way up — and Neil’s trademark guitar noise with the ever trusty Ol’ Black is dead front and center.

Nothing leaps right out in the same way as Neil Young and Crazy Horse classics “Like A Hurricane” or “Cortez The Killer”, for example. Well, nothing outside of lyrics calling for Bush’s impeachment, anyway. Still, the shorter, more economical approach allows these songs more room to grow on you.

And with lyrics like “Let’s impeach the President for lying,” these songs also pack the far more direct punch that Neil Young clearly intended.

“Let’s Impeach The President”, of course, has drawn the most attention thus far. Neil Young basically rattles off a litany of reasons calling for Bush’s ouster from office ranging from the aforementioned “lying…misleading our country into war” to “highjacking our religion…and using it to get elected.” Basically a faster, more uptempo rewrite of “Powderfinger” (you can practically interchange the line “Let’s Impeach The President for Lyin” for “Shelter Me from the Powder and the Finger”), it ends with Neil exchanging the bitten-off lyrics with a series of Bush sound bites.

On “Shock And Awe,” Neil’s snarling guitar trades off with the military funeral procession like sounds of the trumpet as he recalls “back in the days of mission accomplished” and prior times “when we had a chance to change our mind.”

On “Flags of Freedom,” the chorus is sung almost as a companion piece to another famous protest song with a patriotic twist — Bob Dylan’s “Chimes of Freedom.” He even name drops Dylan in the lyrics between a chorus which celebrates “these flags of freedom flying,” while questioning the wisdom of sending a family’s kids off to war. It’s a great touch.

On “Looking For A Leader,” Young yearns for “someone who walks among us and I hope he hears the call.” He then rattles off a list of candidates, including prominent black politicians like Obama and Colin Powell, because “maybe it’s a woman or a black man after all.”

The album closes with “Roger and Out,” which returns Neil Young to “that old hippie highway” he has repeatedly revisited throughout his career in an obligatory moment of nostalgia and reflection that recalls more pensive mid-seventies work like On The Beach. Here, he seems to be saying “Roger And Out” to a fallen comrade. This is followed appropriately enough by the choir’s solemn, reverent, and gorgeous intonation of “America The Beautiful.”

While it would be easy to use the unapologetically anti-Bush tone of the lyrics on Living With War as a flashpoint for debate — indeed, many in the media are already doing just that — it’s an argument which, ultimately, nobody wins.

Some are going to agree with every word Neil Young says on this album, while others are going to lead the charge to ship him back to his native Canada.

For that reason alone, at a time when America is divided by political and cultural ideology like it hasn’t been at any time since the Nixon years, it can be reasonably argued that voices of protest and dissent like Neil Young’s should not only be welcomed — but that they are necessary. If for no other reason than the fact that they remind us of just why soldiers are sent to war to fight for those freedoms we cherish so dearly in the first place.

Freedom of speech is a constitutional guarantee. One which means, among other things, the right to protest or dissent. Whether it be in song or otherwise.

Protest music is as richly American an artform as you’ll find anywhere in the landscape of our country’s history. From the protest songs born in the dust bowls and the union struggles, to the negro spirituals which arose from the cotton fields of the Civil War era.

I personally find it ironic that quite often the loudest voices at home in support of unpopular wars — from Vietnam in the sixties to Iraq in the present day — have also been among the quickest to call for quieting those voices of protest.

Living With War is proof that those voices, which have been somewhat quiet in recent years, are rising once again.

Can I get an “Amen” on that?

Here is the complete track listing for Neil Young’s Living With War:

1. After the Garden
2. Living With War
3. The Restless Consumer
4. Shock and Awe
5. Families
6. Flags of Freedom
7. Let’s Impeach the President
8. Lookin’ for a Leader
9. Roger and Out
10. America the Beautiful

    Excellent review Glen – you’ve wisely reviewed the album itself rather than getting too heavily drawn into the political message. I’d agree with this review 100%.

    This also proves that streaming an entire album online before its release isn’t a bad thing; I’d probably never have bought this had I not had the chance to hear it first.

  • http://rodneywelch.blogspot.com/ Rodney Welch

    I like the review, too, Glen, and I think you’re on the mark. It’s not a masterpiece, but that’s okay — it’s nice to hear Young release something that’s very spontaneous, raw, and of-the-moment. There’s an immediacy to it. What will we say of it in ten years? Maybe not much. We’ll see. It works for now though.

  • http://www.markiscranky.org Mark Saleski

    got mashed potatoes…ain’t got no t-bone.

    uh..sorry, what were we talking about?

    good review. it does sound like a tightened up version of Crazy Horse. i’m gonna buy it.

  • http://www.markiscranky.org Mark Saleski

    also, i like the trumpet solo quoting “Hey, Hey, My My” during “Shock and Awe”.

    It’s interesting that this review is written on the 36th anniversary of the Kent State shootings.

    “…4 dead in Ohio”

    You wrote a great review for this, Glen. I can’t wait to get my hands on this.

  • Jerry P.

    I just want to comment on something you said in your review. This album definitely grows on you with repeated listenings. Sure it may be a little rough around the edges at times, but it is the immediacy of the message that is the power of the work. That said, Young has employed a time tested method of getting a message across–the protest song. I believe there are several cuts that will become anthems of the growing anti-war movement. My favorite is “Roger and Out.” Young is an anti-war voice that crosses generations. Part of the power of the sixties anti-war movement was the soundtrack playing in the background. Neil Young has added a powerful voice to today’s.

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Thanks for the kind words you guys (Daniel, Rodney, Mark, J.P. and Jerry).

    J.P. I actually had no idea that today was the anniversary of the Kent State shootings…that is a pretty wild coincidence. I was actually looking for something on Living With War that would get stuck in my brain like “Ohio” did the first time I heard it. I was a little bit disapointed at first when I didn’t hear it immediately. But then I allowed the songs on Living With War to grow on me…and now there is about 3 or 4 of them that are stuck in my head.

    It really is a good record. Like Rodney says, it remains to be seen how it is looked back upon in ten years, but for now something this immediate and relevant is welcome indeed.

    And Mark…I got your T Bone right here…LOL!

    Actually I always liked “Southern Pacific” off of that particular, largely forgotten NY album.

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    Seriously,

    What does “After the Garden” mean ? Is it like an environmentalwacko tune implying there’s no more trees or something ? Please, I’d like to know, seriously.

    LANDING ON WATER IS A GREAT ALBUM YALL. IT ROCKS.

    When the sensitive, caring, proper, and understanding Joe Biden, liberal Democrat, says Moussaoui may not have ‘gotten the better end of the deal,’ you can’t fool me. I know exactly what he’s talking about: the old bend-over-forward-and-grab-the-ankles-in-prison time.

    Abu Grab upset him sooooo much.

    Hypocrisy Hypocracy (No matter how you spell it it comes up Communist/Liberal)

  • Paul (Liverpool)

    “After the Garden” is a reference to:
    1. The Garden of Eden (possibly located by Biblical scholars within modern-day Iraq)
    2. Woodstock (reference “purple haze”)
    3. “Johnny’s garden” by Manassas (reference “haircut” and “shoeshine”)
    4. Symbolic for a collective loss of innocence
    5. A combination of all the above? – or something else!

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Some very interesting observations there Paul. Particularly the one about the Garden of Eden possibly being located in modern day Iraq. I think I’m just going to have to Google that one…thanks!

    Reference to the “Woodstock” song by Joni Mitchell:

    “We are stardust,we are a billion year old carbon,
    we are golden
    We just got caught up in some devil’s bargain
    And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.

    To some semblance of a garden.”

  • tomtrumpet

    This record was a joy to make. Neil can’t hold back all the emotions he has in his heart. On sat.april 1st he wrote and we recorded 3 songs in the same day. I’ve never seen anything like this and I’ve been around awhile. Its like Neil said,”both sides are losing now and heaven takes them in..” We need to stop this war..

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    So assuming this actually is Tommy Bray…and that is exactly what I am going to assume until you tell me otherwise…do you think Neil would be interested in doing an interview for Blogcritics?

    I originally was supposed to be doing one with him for the “Heart of Gold” movie around the time of SXSW, but then obviously a lot of things changed pretty rapidly. I would still love to interview Neil and think this record would make such an article for Blogcritics more topical than ever.

    If you think he would be interested you can follow the URL here to my own personal weblog and leave a message. You should be able to find my email address there as well. I promise to reply immediately upon getting your message.

    For that matter, Tommy, if you would like to talk about your own experiences making this record I’d be very interested in hearing them as well.

    Thanks for leaving the comment Tommy…it really is a great album.

    Just in case anyone was wondering, Living With War did come out in record stores today. Just picked up at my copy at Easy Street here in Seattle about 15 mins ago.

  • tomtrumpet

    Hey Glen, How ya do’in?? As far as Neil is concerned it would be best to check with Lookout Mg. to get the word to him. Talk to Elliott. I’ll also get in touch with him. Thanks for the great review. The main guys who created this record are Neil, Rick and Chad. Neil also got Niko Bolas to co-produce. The Volume Dealers, as their known work great together. Balls to the Walls and lets Keep Rockin’ in the Free World..

  • http://www.rodneywelch.blogspot.com/ Rodney Welch

    Tom–

    Just chiming in to say great record and to give a shout-out to Niko Bolas, who has contributed so significantly to the lives of two of my favorite singers, Neil Young and Warren Zevon, and helping both to realize their unique musical visions.

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Tommy,

    I appreciate the help there.

    I have to be honest here and tell you I don’t have the slightest idea of how to get in touch with Elliott or anybody else at Lookout.

    When I was originally going to interview Neil for the “Heart of Gold” project, I was going through the folks at Cornerstone, who we’re handling some of the Internet promotions for the project.

    Now of course I understand completely if you don’t want contact info for Elliott Roberts blasted out over the Internet. In fact, for both of our sakes, please don’t do that…LOL

    But I also greatly appreciate any help you can offer (definitely appreciate your saying you’d get word to Neil–many, many thanks for that!).

    If you did want to pass any info to me, you can always email me. I’m not totally sure what Blogcritics protocol for passing an email address is, except that I don’t believe we writers are permitted to do that here in the comments box.

    But I do know that if you go to my “author’s page” here, it should be there.

    If not, you should be able to find it by going to my personal web blog. Just click where it says “URL” right below my name in this comment box.

    Again, I really appreciate your help (if of course you are even able).

    And I’m really glad you liked the review.

    Thanx!

    Hi Glenn,

    I made it.

    Your Pal,

    Rubberneck !

  • RUBBERNECK

    O.K. O.K., Lets forget politics. Would you agree Mr. Glenn that the MUSIC here is an evolved version of songs we have all heard before many time over. I want some original stuff from Neil minus the politics. Believe me, he has Republican fans. Doesn’t he care about us ? Hell, I’m the guy that bought the Shocking Pinks Record not to mention Old Ways. Come on man, throw me a freakin here, Glenn, Neil. I think Neil has a Like a Hurricane some where up his sleeve, lets here that. Let’s Roll. Glenn, you must be one helleva’ nice fella.

    Your Pal,

    Rubberneck

  • RUBBERNECK

    HEAR GLENN NOT HERE, THOUGHT YOU HAD ME, YOU LITTLE DEVIL !

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Yes you did Mr. Neck. You made it. Should I be happy about that or fear the worst? LOL…

    Glad to see you made it Mr. Neck.

    I agree there is some repetitive stuff here though Mr. Neck. “Lets Impeach The President” does sound a hell of a lot like “Powderfinger” for example.

    I do like this record though. A lot. And thats strictly on musical terms…lyrics or politics aside. I like the big electric noise Neil makes and he was about due for a record like that. I just really like that noise.

    And yes, Mr. Neck it is true. I am a very nice guy. Actually you seem like a rather likeable dude yourself…when your not busy hollering away with those big, fat caps of yours anyway.

    I take no issue with your politics either. You have every right to say what you feel you need to say. Just as Neil does in my own opinion. Thats all I’m saying.

    So welcome to the party Mr. Neck.

    Aint America great?

    -Glen

  • RUBBERNECK

    I’m Humbled ! Did I spell that right ? Man, I’ve loved that Screetching Guitar all my life Glenn. (BUT) To think that my idol actually thinks in a 180′ direction from me, hurts. I became consumed with Politics in the early 90’s and yeah, I always knew Neil was left of center but these days it’s straight to the leftward land of silliness. I love the re-writes too. I love to sit and figure which song the new song evolved from. How though can I sit and sing these words which insult our President our Country and our Troops knowing full well most of the words are left wing talking points which I know for a fact have no basis in reality ? President Bush spent like a hundred thousand dollars per Household in New Orleans and I gotta sit and listen to Neil Young call the guy a Boob ? Jeezzz, yeah, he has the right to say what he wants but he’s actually spewing lies or like I said talking points. Nearly 2,500 hundred persons have lost there lives in Iraq from our side, quite a number, sure. But I’d say 99% of them went willingly and knew the risks. Those people need to be Honored. We can Honor them to the highest degree by winning this War. Glenn, do you know why we have lost so many fine young people ? Because we are trying to do this thing so carefully that we are risking our own lives to the tune of 2,500 Troops. Hey, if it were me, I’d have flattened the place to be honest, point being, I’m not thrilled about the way the War is being handled either, but I will not go out and bash my own Country and my own President to satisfy Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro and Mike Farrell. I just won’t do it. What should we care that the United Nations doesn’t like it. They don’t like us no matter what we do. What the U.N. wants is our money and for us to be push overs. We do not owe the world a living brother. Back on point I’m talking reality in response to Looney Politics. The words from this album spread to people that don’t know better and bamm, more problems. Glenn ?

    Hey there Mr. Neck.

    Sorry I’ve been kinda quiet. I was on vacation in Reno for about a week there.

    I never expected Living With War to be a huge commercial record.

    Still admire Neil for speaking his mind though. As I do you.

    So yeah, probably time to move past the Neil Young record (like about two weeks ago I would suggest).

    Speaking strictly as a fan of the man’s music though (which is pretty much where I’ve always come from anyway), I’m looking very forward to the Heart of Gold DVD. I hear it has some pretty nifty extras.

    In the meantime there’s always those damned Dizie Chicks right? #1 Debut on Billboard this week.

    Go get em’ Mr. Neck.

    I suspect you and Al Barger are gonna get along just fine. Just make sure you bring your sense of humor.

    -Glen

  • RUBBERNECK

    Hey Glenn,

    Glad you’re back. Those Dixie Chicks rub me the wrong way too. They are really risking their audience Bashing the President and it’s cost them already no doubt. If they were dudes, they’d be washed up but as luck would have it, they all have nice tits. As for me I’d sooner invite Kim, Jong Il for Tea and Crumpets then listen to country music, except for Neil country music, barr Old Ways of course, because most of that Sucked with a Capital S. Reno huh ? My cousin D lives in Las Vegas.

    Peace through Superior Fire Power,

    Your Pal,

    Rubberneck

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Whats up Mr. Neck?

    I’m not that much of a country music fan either (except for people like Johnny Cash), and I dont really “get” the Dixie Chicks. I do kind of like their cover version of “Missisippi” by Bob Dylan though. But thats just a great song to begin with. Screwing that song up would be like a fast food joint screwing up a cheeseburger ya know?

    You really oughtta check out Al Barger’s various articles on the Dixie Chicks here on Blogcritics though Mr. Neck. He’s got like a million of em up on the site. Barger shares your political views (and gets a lot of angry comments). But he is also a really funny man. His angry diatribes about the Dixie Chicks are just hilarious reading, even if you don’t agree with everything he says (which I don’t, but thats beside the point).

    Seriously Mr. Neck you should check those out. I think you’d probably have a lot to say on those threads.

    By the way, I didn’t much care for Old Ways either. My friends and I used to jokingly refer to that record as “Oldness”. That was right in the middle of that weird period in the eighties when Neil seemed to have really lost his way artistically for a while there.

    He’s back now though. And I still can’t wait for the Heart of Gold DVD. But I’m still listening to Living With War pretty regularly. What can I say? I just love that freaking noise he makes with Old Black.

    HEY NEIL FUCKIN YOUNG

    IN ONTARIO OF ALL FUCKIN PLACES ! GO IMPEACH YOUR OWN FUCKIN PRESIDENT YOU COMMUNIST JOAN BAEZ LOVIN HIPPY MOTHERFUCKER.

    BRAMPTON, Ontario – At least one member of a group of terror suspects plotted to storm Canada’s parliament and behead officials, including the prime minister, if Muslim prisoners in Canada and Afghanistan were not released, according to charges made public Tuesday. Authorities also alleged that Steven Vikash Chand plotted to take over media outlets such as the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.

    FUCK YOU.

  • Anti-Lib

    NASHVILLE Billboard Initial ticket sales for the Dixie Chicks’ upcoming tour are far below expectations and several dates will likely be canceled or postoned. Ticket counts for the
    20-plus arena shows that went on sale last weekend were averaging 5,000-6,000 per show in major markets and less in secondaries, according to sources contacted by Billboard. Venue capacities on the tour generally top 15,000.

    What ? They can’t afford to rent a venue unless they’re making millions ? They can’t loose a few bucks for the good of the few “fans” that want to see them ? NOPE ! That’s what Liberals are, money grubbin’ assholes.

    Neil, your tours are gonna be just like this you commie fucker. Stick Greendale up your ass. Long live Jackie Brols and Dunlap @ REDSTATEUPDATE DOT COM. War on Neil Young. Let’s deport Neil Young for CRYIN’ and using his Music to make Money. Don’t fuck with this country Neil Young. Go live in Anwar with the seals. You can only get there by ship asshole.

    Eat Shit Neil Young ! P.S. Your album is sinking like a stone as usual, of course, you don’t care about that, huh ? Make more Shocking Pink music you gauky piece of shit.

    Hey Neil, Remember when you said you don’t want Faggots handling your Potatoes ? How could you say such a thing Hypocrit, oops I mean Liberal ?It’s in your book. So you hate Faggots but then you do a movie Philadelphia, supporting them. You do an album supporting the War on Terror then do two albums opposed to it, you say Live Music is Better, then tour with Machines instead of people, you supported Reagan and did a song opposed to Bush 41. Hey Neil, remember when you released Trans you said you thought that was gonna be what you were gonna do from then on ? Computer Music ? Why didn’t you ? Yeah, I remember, I still got the article from Parade Magazine. You support Michael Moore whom holds great stock in Haliburton ? Huh ? Yep, Haliburton, Owned by LadyBird Johnson.

    seek…professional…help

    your obvious psychotic break is causing severe delusions

    oh yes, and Neil Young has more talent left in the sink with the soap scum after he shaves than you will ever possess , in total, for all your days on earth

    just so you know

    Excelsior?

  • RUBBERNECK

    Talent ? Come on ! The toughest cord the guy can pluck is Em7. Every song he’s written in the last 30 years were re-writes. It’s either that Cowgirl in the Sand / Wooden Ships riff, an Am G F progression, a variation of the stones Satisfaction or The Ol’Lotta’Love Riff (which was also stolen) every album, every song. Talent ? More like Luck. Much Luck. Hey I loved the guy but this Greendale/Living with War crap has finally pushed me over the edge with this idiot. I lived through Trans and Everybody’s Rockin’ and Old ways and This notes for you. Garbage but I know every song because I was that dedicated to the skinny Bastard.

    Oh and Gonzo, My Ass Hair knows more about Neil Young then you’ll ever know. As for my talent, you don’t even know who the fuck I am.

  • RogerMDillon

    How much did it cost Neil and the label to put out the album? If it’s already recovered its costs, then it’s a success, so sales at this point might no longer matter

    feel free to go back to your mad ramblings.

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    I am personally really astounded anybody is still talking about this myself.

    RUBBERNECK apparently got the thread going again, and for that I thank him (sort of anyway)…

    The bottom line is Neil put out a protest record critical of George Bush.

    Who is not one of my favorite people in the world either…and I refuse to get into those politics here. My feelings are the guy led us into a war on what have largely been proven to be false pretenses; he is absolutely an OIL GUY which is why we can barely afford to drive to work anymore…NEED I GO ON??

    No.

    In My review of Neil’s album, I tried to judge it by it’s musical merits alone, while not ignoring the subject matter altogether. That being said, it’s a protest album.

    And Mr. Neck, get over it okay.

    Neil made an album critical of Bush.

    And Like I said, he doesn’t top my list of my favorite guys either. But Neil made it. Just like he made “Ohio” which was critical of Nixon (which was the last time we had a president who divided the country like this….remember Bush’s “Im a uniter , not a divider bullshit?”).

    I don’t like Bush at all. On that me and Neil Young are in complete agreement.

    But I judge these things as I see them. Neil put out his album. He did so with a lot of publicity behind it.

    And as you have correctly pointed out, it has pretty much died commercially after an initial surge based on the publicity it got.

    So the “converted” got it. And nobody elae really did.

    You know what? So be it.

    Done deal.

    I still applaud this particular artist for having the courage to speak his heart. And in my personal opinion, he did so rather powerfully on this particular effort.

    But lets move on shall we?

    An artist reflecting his personal views through his art is as American as Apple Pie. Whether or not the public chooses to bite (which in this case they apparently did not) is entirely another matter….

    So whats left to talk about?

    Next………..?

    Glen,

    It’s not George Bush or the Oil Companies hurting the American People. Not at all. The Oil Companies make 9 cents on a Gallon of Gas which costs $2.89. Nine fuckin’ cents. The Oil companies total take is atributed to the U.S. sales to the tune of about 30 %. The rest of thier profits come from elsewhere. It’s not the Oil Companies fault that Oil prices fly up every time some wacked out Mid-East Diaper head says something. So whats the root cause of high Oil prices ? LIBERALS, HIPPY HOLDOVERS, AMERICA HATING NEIL YOUNG TYPES which refuse to allow us to drill for Oil thus keeping us dependent on the Mid-East and Hugo Chavez. If we could just drill on one 10/1000 of 1 percent of the Land in Northern Alaska, we could have $1.50 gas again. But noooooooooooooooooooooo, Liberals don’t like that, that would make America strong. Glen, you are clearly a person of intellect, look it up. Don’t let the Drive-By media make you a casualty of their ignorance. Bush was in Oil, sure. He failed, big time. You want to know who in politics profits from Oil ? Ted Kennedy and his family tricked poor Black dirt farmers into uping the mineral rights to their land and set up Oil wells. Money which they draw to this very day. Of course the Drive-By media will never tell that story because it does not fit their template. Glen, http://WWW.RUSHLIMBAUGH.COM. Give it a listen with an open mind.

    All I am saying, is give Rush a Chance !

  • Martin Lav

    Glen,
    I can’t believe you gave this guy any “props” especially on Al’s thread and review of only ONE song on this album. This rubberdick guy is obviously derranged (proven by his postings to himself for weeks) like most right wing wacko’s that can rationalize “this war is right” mentality even though there’s heaps of proof to the contrary. I myself don’t believe Bush and Cheney and Rummy are doing this for the oil, but more like for their crazed philosophy that everyone in the world wants what we have… freedom… Bush is a dry drunk that believes that if he gives the mid-East a taste of the West they will savor it and convert, but as Rubberdick and those like him love to prove … freedom of speech is only okay if your on their side and agree with them. He can sit here and claim to be a Neil Young fan, but yet is so blinded by his undying support of the right wing agenda of Rush and Bush that he can’t even bring himself to support his beloved Neil. If he truly is a fan listening to this record must drive him to the brink…..look he’s watching the charts, reporting it in blogsphere, posting to himself and he’s obviously tortured.

    Like I said on Al Bargers blog, this will go down as one of Neils greatest works…..AND GLEN.
    …the catching tune on this album is NO MORE LIES, no more lies…..the Restless Consumer… flies around the world each day…..

    I can’t believe you missed that one!

    Peace

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Martin,

    First, thanks for the comments both here and on Al Barger’s NY post.

    To answer your question, I don’t believe I’ve given Mr. Neck “props” at all, unless humorously masked sarcasm counts as “props.”

    But I basically do believe he has as much right to rant away…yes, even when nobody’s listening as has been the case for most of the past month…as anybody else does. Even when I don’t necessarily agree.

    Like you, I find much of what he has to say to be illogical…especially when he gets to really ranting in those irritating caps of his. And I certainly don’t agree with the majority of it. But he does have the right to say it.

    I guess that makes me a “true liberal”…I’ll tolerate pretty much anything short of abusiveness or name calling. From what I can tell, Mr. Neck hasn’t yet crossed that line. At least not in a serious way. I will admit his “dedication” to repeated flaming is growing a little tiresome. Which is why I haven’t engaged him lately.

    But…truth be told, Mr. Neck’s rantings have driven traffic to my posts on more than a few occasions. So theres my true ulterior motive in tolerating it I guess. It drives hits up. As someone who once worked in public relations, you certainly have heard that old saying “theres no such thing as bad press”…LOL…

    My comment over on Al Barger’s NY post with regard to Mr. Neck was intended to be humorous by the way…I’d have thought you would picked up on that. Barger’s stuff can be as off-the-wall crazy as Mr. Neck’s (why I suggested they could become fast friends…LOL), but I always enjoy reading it because he can be funny as hell.

    So theres the best explanation I can offer Martin. There actually is some method to my madness.

    -Glen

  • RUBBERNECK

    [Edited] You obviously know nothing about Neil Young or Politics. I assure, I am well educated on both subjects. You fuckin’ Hippy Holdover Michael Moore / Cindy Sheehan types can no longer drum your sick hatred on ABC NBC & CBS unchecked and you still just can’t get over that. You’re the people that don’t want freedom of Speech. We let you [Edited] speak, but we will counter, believe that, we will counter for ever more. As for Neil Young politics, he has changed his views far more times than he’s changed his boxers. He’s a mean/nasty human being except towards people he considers on his level or above. Everyone else is riff raff to him and he could give a rats ass about them. The albums he’s put out “Concept Albums” if you will, are proof enough of that. Shocking Pinks, Trans Band, International Harvesters, Blue Notes ect… Proud to be a Union Man then tours with Machines instead of people, Let’s Roll then Greendale and Living with War polar opposite views. He hates oil and owns some 200 cars, he kept his kids in their condition but does concerts to help pay for the abortions of strangers, Where that money is, no one really knows. Probably in the Farm Aid account. Any body out there ever get any Farm-Aid ? This is same guy could not bring himself to kill a couple of Chickens, What a sham. Quoted as saying he didn’t want faggots handling his potatoes @ the Supermarket he later assists with a pro-fag movie. HYPOCRITS IS WHAT YOU ALL ARE. How many Blacks did Neil Pick up from New Orleans in his buses and let homestead on his land in Northern California ? Answer (NONE) He was crying for tax payer money though, wasn’t he ? Now we have (2) Billion Dollars (That’s 2 Thousand Million Dollars) in confirmed fraud (Disney Vacations/Big ScreenT.V.’s/Weddings/Ship Voyages/New Cars/Stereos) Worked about as well as the U.N. Oil for Food Scam which would have been better named Kick Backs for Communists. Thousands of new modular homes stuck on mud paths rendered worthless beacause of shit house Hippys such as yourself. Don’t you ever lecture me Martin. You’ll loose every time. You wit da big boyz now homie.

    I may have to retract my above comments about you not “crossing the line” Mr. Neck.

    Dude, make your point. Nobody here, least of all me, begrudges you that right.

    But make it civilly okay?

    Your apology is accepted. But know this, the people who manage this site may not as generous in that regard.

    You’re treading a thin line with the comments editor here when you resort to name-calling and abusive language. This conversation can be had in a civil manner. I suggest you adhere to that in the future okay?

    Thanks.

    Re: #55/#58

    Unfortunately, I don’t “control the board.” The comments here are controlled by a comments editor. I do appreciate your contrition however. But if the comments editor chooses to delete your comments above in #55 (and theres a fair chance they will), theres nothing I can do.

    The best advice I can give is just to think before starting a post with “Fuck You” and going on to say things like “liberal piece of dog shit.” You can make your points without the attacks okay? And I, as the lowly writer of the article, absolutely support your right to make your points.

    If the editors delete the comment (which they likely will), I have no control of that however.

    Just keep it civil in the future okay? No one is saying not to be passionate about your viewpoint. Just don’t take that passion to the point of verbal fisticuffs.

    I like seeing the debate. I also like it when my articles get people talking…pro, con, or otherwise. I like civil and intellectual discourse. But the “intellectual” and yes, the “civil” must be emphasized.

    Common sense Mr. Neck…thats all.

  • Martin Lav

    Glen,
    Sorry, didn’t understand your original sarcasm on Al’s site……I’m a little slow maybe, but I’m glad you pointed it out. Maybe Al will come into your house and post and he can see how his views sometimes play on the truly deranged.
    You didn’t comment on Restless Consumer I noticed, didn’t you like that song? I think it’s the best one on the entire CD and I do believe most NY fans voted it the best as well.

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    No problem Martin.

    I like “Restless Consumer” fine…truth is I like the whole album a lot.

    My personal favorite track is “Roger And Out” though. It has that laid back sort of feel kind of like a slightly louder version of something from “On The Beach.” It’s also a nice sequeway into the beautiful choir-sung version of “America The Beautiful” that closes the record.

    If I didn’t mention “Restless Consumer” in the original review though, it was just an oversight. When I first wrote that review, this album was still a “news-item” as much as it was just a CD release, and I may have been rushing a bit to get it out there while it was still, you know, newsworthy.

    Anyway, I appreciate the comments Martin. And Happy July 4 Holiday!

    -Glen

  • http://www.morethings.com/log Al Barger

    Howdy Martin, Glen, Rubberneck- Happy 4th of July. Per Martin’s request, thought I’d show up and say howdy.

    As to deranged, I’d say that Rubberneck maybe just gets a touch overly adamant now and again. The word “deranged” would perhaps better apply to some of Martin’s fantasies about me and VRWC. But it’s not like you ain’t baiting ol’ Rubberneck. Still, stuff like his comment 55 does show y’all got his goat there for a minute, and now he’s having to rassle it back from you. My goat ain’t so easily gotten.

    Still, I note that Rubberneck’s actually a Neil Young fan- apparently considerably moreso than me. Also, he is mostly trying to actually talk about Neil Young’s music and the specific record, not just the cheesy politics.

    But Brother Boyd, with due respect I’ma have to call bullshit on your big ending about “free speech.” This is some silly stuff right here, “I personally find it ironic that quite often the loudest voices at home in support of unpopular wars — from Vietnam in the sixties to Iraq in the present day — have also been among the quickest to call for quieting those voices of protest.”

    Your big climax is a really, really dumb straw man. No one is trying to quiet Neil Young’s voice of dissent. Y’all liberals are making like Don Quixote with this nonsense about free speech, gallantly battling censorship that ain’t even vaguely happening.

    Yup, Neil Young has every right in the world to make this record, and more power to him if he can sucker folks into buying it. Likewise, it’s my duty as a patriotic music loving American to say that the album is mostly just crap, with one halfway decent single, speaking to actual music.

    No one will give a rat’s ass about this record a year from now. It’ll be one more forgotten half-assed Neil Young record. Don’t worry though, he can puke these generic NY records out in his sleep. He’ll have two or three more records that sound exactly the same before the end of the year most likely.

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Al,

    See my above comments (specifically #54, 56, 60) for clarification on my feelings about “free speech.” I wholeheartedly support freedom of expression no matter what form it takes. Whether it be from Neil Young, Mr. Neck, or anybody else.
    I’m a tried and true, dyed in the wool bleeding heart that way.

    Glad you could join the party though Mr. Barger. Your voice is always welcome where it comes to my articles far as I am concerned.

    Anyway, what better way to celebrate our independence huh? USA…USA…USA…

    -Glen

  • http://www.morethings.com/log Al Barger

    America, f&*% yeah!

    Glen, I’m all in favor of that free speech stuff, but I’m just not feeling that much need for cheerleading on the topic, at least not so far as the US is concerned. It’s not under any significant attack, other than the wicked campaign finance laws. If you’re feeling an urge to do battle for our freedom of expression, you’d be better off working for repeal of McCain-Feingold.

    When you carry on about it like this though, it’s like you’re implying that someone is trying to shut Neil down from speaking his piece, which simply is not even vaguely the case.

    Nonetheless, it’s groovy to spend the last few minutes of Independence Day in your playground. Rock and roll!

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Al,

    Well if it appeared I was implying that Neil’s right to freely express his opinions was under attack, that was not my intent.

    I was merely pointing out (correctly in my opinion) that a lot of those who are most vocal in their support of unpopular wars are often the same people who carp the loudest when artists express their views in voices of protest.

    From the “love it or leave it” crowd back in the Nixon years to those who revoke someone like Linda Ronstadt’s performingt contract in Vegas more recently, this type of thing DOES go on.

    The reason I find it ironic is because it is that very right to freely express yourself that is one of the most fundamental rights our soldiers fight to defend. I find irony in that Al…thats all.

    But I never directly said Neil Young’s right to freedom of speech was being attacked. Nor do I believe it is.

    I do support that right however. Just the same way I do yours, mine, Rubberneck’s, or anybody else’s in this great country of ours. It is NOT something that is dependent on whether or not I agree with your views.

    Like I said, glad you could join the party over here Al.

    Aw hell, Aint America Great? Its about 9:00 out here on the West Coast and I’m off to watch me some fireworks.

    Happy Birthday America.

    -Glen

  • Martin Lav

    Hey All…
    Glen your comments are “spot on” in my opinion and proved beyond a shadow of a doubt based on Rubbernecks own spewing. Here’s a guy who supposedly loves Neil Young, but because he’s so damn “patriotic” he wants to attack everything about him from FarmAid, to Bridge School and everything in between. I think that’s your point…pro – US – anything including WAR and if anyone dare to differ….ATTACK THEM TOO.
    As far as you Mr. Barger, I’m glad you decided to show your ink and welcome the continuation of our dialog. It looks like Mr. Young will once again serve his purpose. After all if he didn’t churn out his crap music and this record was really, really first-class good music, you would have nothing to talk about right? After all, you have stated repeatedly (to the extent whereby YOU may actually believe it yourself) that your review was based on the music and lyrics, NOT about the politics. And of course we all know that Dr. BLT is a far better writer and musician than Neil Young, but for some reason feels compelled to use his name and post on his fan website (profiteering anyone?).
    Bottomline is that Neil’s record has gotten solid reviews from reputable music critics except for those that lean right and I predict that this particular album will be considered one of his finest, twenty years from now. I also predict that Al’s beloved Dr. BLT will change his name to Dr. PBJ and will still be copying other peoples music and paying critics to promote his vile.

  • http://www.morethings.com/log Al Barger

    Again Martin, you’re being dishonest with your made up “paying critics” nonsense. That’s the kind of thing that tends to give me feelings of contempt for wingnuts like Michael Moore. It’s not that he’s liberal, but that he’s dishonest. On 1/1000th the scale, that’s the kind of thing you keep doing in these Neil Young/BLT threads. You keep repeating your malicious fabrications again and again, as if you just repeating it enough will make it true, or convince others that it’s true.

    Also though, this statement is specifically silly, “After all if he didn’t churn out his crap music and this record was really, really first-class good music, you would have nothing to talk about right?” No, if he made a great record, I’d be carrying on about what a great record he made. See for example my recent review of Paul Simon’s Surprise.

    By the way, anyone joining our conversation late can GO HERE to see my review of “Let’s Impeach the President” and to get a free download of BLT’s answer song, “Neil Young (Have You Forgotten)”

    I note in defense of Neil Young, or at least of his webmaster, that the official Neil Young site has a link for my mp3 download of the BLT song. I was pleased to see that someone there seems to have a positive attitude towards presenting dissent, certainly more positive than Martin’s rather Stalinist attitude here.

  • Martin Lav

    Okay Al…you may be right…I may be so offended by this Dr. BLT song that I am assuming there must be some sort of conspiracy brewing. I guess I just can’t get over that someone with your obvious intelligence could prefer this so-called song of his over one of the greatest artists of all time. It is beyond belief to me and I just can’t rationalize it at all. In fact just to be sure I was being objective, I listened to the free link you so graciously posted (I assume for free) of this Dr. BLT crap once again and I still can’t get over it. It is total crap, repeating the same lines, talking over each other (wow CSN&Y would love that harmony huh?) using Neils own words……I mean this thing is so devoid of a music catchiness and lyrics that I am apalled once again that you could dare to give it so glowing a review. Now to have it posted here for another free download, I am almost convinced that you love Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwiches so much, that you are in fact the good Dr. himself.
    Impeach the President for Lying!

  • http://www.morethings.com/log Al Barger

    Martin, obviously you’ve got issues that are so severe that they have effected your vision, or at least your reading comprehension. Again, you seem unable to consider this Neil Young song as an entity to itself when you write that I “prefer this so-called song of his over one of the greatest artists of all time.”

    No, I don’t prefer BLT’s song to anything and everything that Neil Young has ever done. The BLT song is not in a league with “Cinnamon Girl,” for starters. But it definitely IS a better song than “Let’s Impeach the President,” which is the point of comparison.

    I’ll assume at this point that the business about me actually being BLT is just you pulling my chain, and I’ll take it for a joke.

    As to the actual musical criticism of the BLT song as repetitive, I suppose you could argue that. Repetition is a basic element of pop songs, stuff like choruses and hooks. Is there four minutes worth of song to the BLT though, or is he overly repeating himself? That’s a reasonable point of critical debate, but there’s clearly more musical development in this BLT song than in this particular Neil Young song.

    What words of Neil’s does BLT use here for you to be complaining about? The only ones that come to mind are the three words of the title “rust never sleeps” as part of the particularly good turn of lyrical phrase, “They say ‘rust never sleeps,’ but your memory fades.”

  • Martin Lav

    Al,
    Let me answer you….you even say in your own “review” that BLT wrote a “Neil-style song” he uses a form of RNS and also Lynard Skynards song as well, but this trash loses me from the very first lyric….Neil Young….Neil Young….
    we both wrote a song that shared the same title
    my song was the first song to get played
    let’s roll was that song title

    What crap!

    Come on Al, get real, you compared these two songs because of your bullshit political leanings and you slam Neil Young all along the way. Your review must be a joke as it can’t be serious. BLT’s better crafted lyrics? Nice raw guitar throb? Give me a break!
    Meanwhile, Neils song is “common rock and roll” has “unimaginative, generic chords” and “he just slops out a lot of half-assed crap” with “plain vanilla” harmonies and “stupid Neil Young lyrics” and Neil Young “looks like a fool talking crazy”.

    You are so jaded in your thinking that you think the SNL paraody is poking fun at Neil, when in fact this “ode” points to the directness that artist himself states are called for at this time. (see Glen’s link to the CNN interview above). This is no time to mince words Mr. Barger and I see right through all of your coyness when it comes to your claim that you wrote an honest review of two separate pieces of music. Another example of your not so OBJECTIVE review, aside from the demonizing of anything liberal is the lack of any links to Neil Youngs songs or his website. As I pointed out in previous posts, you not only “trash” Neil Young countlessly (and I counted 19 times) you state that Mr. BLT graciously gave you permission to offer his song for free. Where did you run across this little diddy by the way? How do you know the good Dr? $1.00 per download and if you get a dime, you might be able to buy a cup of coffee in a week.
    Good Luck !

  • Rubberneck

    Well Well. It seems maybe ol’ Rubberneck wasn’t so far from shore after all. Some of you even agree with me a bit. Yes fellas, I openly admit to being a Neil Young fan since I was a kid. I have every album, every song, every book and basically know everything anyone could possibly know about another human being. Truth is I have been taking “shots” pardon the pun if you know what I mean, some of you don’t, over this man since I was a kid. When everyone else was into Van Halen and AC/DC and Ozzy and Blue Oyster Cult and ect…I stuck by this man. Hawks and Doves, Trans, Everybody’s Rockin’, Old Ways, Landing on Water, Life. I saw this guy with Waylon Jennings and Jessie Coulter. Did you hear me ? Waylon Jennings and Jessie Coulter ! Jones Beach, Long Island. The big encore was “Mamma don’t let you babies grow up to be Cowboys”. Country music in the North East. But I stuck by this guy and took all the arrows my friends could sling. Now this guy is Offending my country, my president and my way of life over talking points set in motion by Michael Moore. All lies, you may have to wait a day or a week or a month but Liberal talking points always prove out to be a lie if you choose to honestly look at the facts. Now I spent years in the Military doing my part to defend this country and I’m not going to let Neil Young or anyone else for that matter ridicule and or berate this country and our President without zinging that person or entity right back. So for me, this guy has finally gone too far. I didn’t spend 4 Harship tours living in a Rice Patty in Korea to listen to a Canadian cut my country down. His views are those of Cindy Sheehan and Michael Moore and George Soros and John Kerry, a Traitor by the way, I mean, do you Libs really need more proof than that ? You expect the American people to believe that the aforementioned persons project the main stream views of the majority in this country ? Get serious and if you are, run Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell in the 08 election, please. Or better yet a Gore / Kerry Ticket oh, that would be yummy. This war, even being forced by Liberals to fight it the way we are, has netted the fewest casualties ever of any Major conflict. More people are being killed in Baltimore as I type. That’s a fact. Glen, no bad words here brother. I was crazy but I’m much better now.

    Not sure what all those people have to do with Neil’s album at all……..and I don’t think Neil berated this country at all. You have the right to your opinion and so does he. Free societies do, just don’t try and stop them from speaking and don’t make it seem unpatriotic. If you silence them you silence yourself.

    Major conflict?
    I thought that ended when your beloved MR. President announced it on the deck of an aircraft carrier? And the killing goes on. One body at a time, makes no difference, it’s in the name of good.

    No Martin, that’s not Rubberneck flip-flopping, that’s him having mixed feelings. He likes some Neil Young records, doesn’t like others. Likes some things the guy does, doesn’t appreciate others. You have that Stalinist us/them mentality going on here so that you can’t even seem to comprehend normal thinking like this. Are you for Neil, or against him?

    Again, you’re really ideologically blindered to a point of pure foolishness to write “You are so jaded in your thinking that you think the SNL paraody is poking fun at Neil.” Well, yes, that was exactly the point of the sketch about Neil’s “SUBTLEST” (in huge letters on screen) album yet.

    The Mission accomplished meant that Saddam Hussein was out of Power. Gone. He was and still is. Where was your Liberal compassion for the people Saddam was murdering daily ?

Did’nt bother you that Saddam violated every “a hem” U.N. resolution on the books which “a hem” resolved, “Desert Storm”. Warning after warning after warning after talks after talks after warning ignored. What we’re we supposed to do, let this Mid East tyrant tell the United States of America what to do ? That’s your Liberal mind set. Not Americas mind set. News flash: These Rags Heads should they be allowed to gain power in this country, will go after you Communist Liberals first thing. Your the reason they hate this country so much. Your Fags and Abortions and S and M clubs and your Anti-God attitudes. If these sand monkeys come here do you think they’re gonna let you keep their God out of our Schools the way you mock Jesus ? Haaaaa. And lets see you take their Guns, that would be rich too. Tell me this, how would your attitudes and protests and talking points and speeches be any different if you were actually for our enemines ? How. They’d be exactly the same. Neil Young needs to know this and it is my mission to convey the message. Peace out Brother.

    You don’t know me or what I stand for, so don’t assume I wasn’t upset with Sadaam’s atrocities or the oil for food joke conducted by U of N (University of Nincompoops). As far as the rest of your racist commentary, you do not speak for America and in fact you have proven by your own pathetic words that you are cut from the same cloth as the Muslim fanatics. In other words you sound incredibly like them except you worship a different God. In fact since you think they’re coming over here to gain control (a little paranoid are we?) why don’t you welcome them, because as you say they believe what you believe….NO same sex marriages, God taught in every school, Religion being the foundation of our nation, Guns in every closet, NO abortions.
    Hell….you have the same platform, exactly!
    S and M clubs? Do you frequent these Rubberneck?
    Are you feeling guilty for your feelings?

    My talking points wouldn’t be any different numbskull because I have philosophical differences with YOU and them and YOU are not speaking for America. America is far more middle of the road then a right WING pinko commie nut job like you.
    Right back at ya…..HOW ARE YOUR TALKING POINTS ANY DIFFERENT THAN THEIRS? Esplain…..

  • Rubberneck

    Now lookahere there Martin, you obviosly don’t read or know the contents of their speeches. Their goal is to fly the Muslim Flag atop the White House, or did’nt you know that ? My guess is you did’nt or as a typical Lib, you just wanted to look the other way and bury your head in the sand, get it ? In the Sand ! LOL ! wave a White Fag ooops Flag and just be a good worker ant for them so long as nobody gets physically injured. How else do you Libs explain your reverence for Tookie Williams, Stalin, Ho Chi Min, Mao, Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro and others ? Oh yeah, I speak for America, believe it. We Rush Limbaugh types are the silent majarity. You call me a racist because I have the balls to decry the sons of bitches that cut our peoples heads off ? So be it then, I’m a Racist, so what ? According to you Libs I have an absolute right to be whatever I want. I’ll bet there aint no Blacks in your hood there Homie. How many Hippies live in South Central ? I mean since they are the furthest things from racist and all. Right ? Did you see the county by county election map ? Not even your Blue States are Blue. We’re on to ya, don’t you get it ? So just keep putting your Springsteen coward run to Canada when your country needs ya types up on the Soap box and throw Cindy Sheehan in just for laughs and we’ll see another Republican land slide victory in November. By the way, I am sick and tired of illegal Mexicans devouring Welfare and Food Stamps and free Health Care and making a Mockery of this country. I am sick and tired of hearing conservatives are heartless because we do not subscribe to the Bible as understood and explained by School Bus Ray Nagin who diverted the hundreds of millions of dollars earmarked for levy’s and squandered it on failed Social give-aways and fake city contracts. Thus the American people pick up the tab, again. At last count, 2 Billion dollars in FRAUD. 2000 Million dollars up in a Cloud of smoke. All that in the name of compassion. So what did the people of New Orleans do as a thank you for the compassion ? Spit in the face of every American that did their part to help their fellow man. Why ? Simple, because the media told them that they were entitled and that they were lifes loosers and that if they’ll just vote for a Communist they will remain entitled. There should have been no racism in New Orleans. It should have been a Liberal utopia and everything should have been perfect considering how long they’d been running the show.

    What were the Japanese battle deaths — not civilian deaths, Japanese battle deaths? 1.59 million: 1,590,000 battle deaths suffered by the Japanese. That means that it’s a ratio, and this doesn’t really state it properly. Twenty-two Japanese battlefield deaths for every one American battlefield death. This does not include the million more that were targeted, civilians targeted, Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Battle deaths, 1.59 million. That’s in addition to the civilian deaths, ranging from several hundred thousand to more than a million. Precise figures hard to come by since estimates vary so widely on the number of deaths as a result of the atomic bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Now, if you’re going to say, “Well, that was a disproportionate response by the United States of America, disproportionate response. Why, we had to kill 22 of them for every one we lost just because they attacked Pearl Harbor?”

    I read only few of the previous posts before I had to run to the toilet to vomit. What is wrong with some of you people? Just because someone criticizes the government does not make them Anti-American. In fact, it makes them by definition American. If you want to live in a country where you are spoon-fed truths and ideologies move to Communist China. I’m personally not a fan of Neil, nor am a Liberal. What I am is American. And I’m proud that I live in a country that has an outlet for all types of protests or criticisms. America is fucked up place…just like everywhere else on the planet. On the scale of ‘fucked up-ness’ America is certainly behind a lot of countries, but the way to true democracy and freedom is through expression. So don’t bash Neil with one hand while you jerk-off Rush Limbaugh with the other. Let them both jerk themselves off. Now that is democracy!

    Drama,
    You hit the nail on the head and I for one believe that is the entire point of Neil Youngs album in the first place. However…..one small difference is that it is NOT limited to North America it is the right of all free democratic countries to voice their opinion, excercise dissent where appropriate and create dialog to ensure we are doing the right thing. While I personally don’t agree with Rush Limbaugh he has every right to voice his one-sided views and create a herd to follow him over the cliff. And we have the right to try and move that herd away.
    Peace

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    He did sum it up rather succinctly and rather well didn’t he Martin?

    That having been said, your point is also quite well taken. We all have the right to speak out. You, me, Neil, Rush, Rubberneck…it’s what makes us as “America” unique and seperates us from the totalitarian regimes of the world.

    We don’t always have to agree on everything, and indeed most of the time few of us do. But the one thing I think we all can agree on, is our God given right as Americans to speak our mind.

    I just got a DVD in the mail of the movie “V For Vendetta” and I’ll be putting up a review sometime this weekend. That film I thought was an excellent commentary on some of the very same things we’ve discussed here over the past few months (even if it is somewhat cleverly disguised as an action movie…with a sympathetic terrorist as it’s hero no less).

    On a related note, some of you may want to check out my movie preview on the upcoming “The US VS John Lennon” film coming out next month. This movie is going to draw a lot of fire I think because it draws parallels between what Lennon went through for speaking out during the Nixon years (he was basically kept out of the country), and some of the same things happening today in the “bush years”.

    And Rubberneck…I think it’s a natural forum for your rather “unique” take on things.

    Gentlemen, start your engines…LOL…

    -Glen

  • Rubberneck

    And Rubberneck…I think it’s a natural forum for your rather “unique” take on things.

    Glenny Boy,
    That’s where you make your mistake my friend. My take is no where near unique. My take is main stream. Our mixed up friends from the East Village in lower Manhattan, those are the ones that have a unique take. Believe me. The New York Times, they have a unique take, or did, Ha Ha, because this time it’s gonna cost them. It already has. Yes, this is so yummy. I hope they go Bankrupt if they ain’t already. They deserve it. Damned traitors to the flag. Take a Look @ a County by County map of the 2004 Presidential Election and tell me I’m unique. Nope, it’s Libs that are unique, Libs. Liberalism never works, never. Johnsons war on poverty for example. 6 Trillion in and all we have is Mexicans scampering to the border for free food, free health care and free housing and eliete, powerful Liberals pulling out there compassion card in order to stuff it down us middle class peoples throats. What’s more, we have to sit here and take it. If the rich and powerful Liberals love illegals so much why not let them Homested on their land. Noooooo, they want the Gang Bangers next door to me. They want my kids in danger. They don’t care because they get to be in their Liberal world with their Liberal thoughts and their Liberal friends and send their kids to their safe protected Liberal schools and the rest of us have to suck on it. Well, no more. Fuck that shit. No more. Fuck Rob Reiner and Mike Farrell and Neil Young.

    Tax cuts work every time they’re tried. Kerry said the current Ecomomy is the worst since Herbert Hoover ! Was he full of crap ? Yes of course he was. Actually the Economy has never been stronger in the History of this nation.

    Abortion is without a doubt, Murder. No where in the Constitution does it say a woman has a right to Murder her baby. Liberals say it does.

    The purpose of the Government is to protect the country not to grant Health Care to illegal Mexicans.

    Liberalism says: You need us because you’re a looser, vote for us and we’ll take care of you.

    Conservatism says: I did it and you can do it to.

    The Constitution clearly states we have a right to “Keep” and “Bear Arms”. Liberals say it doesn’t say that.

    Is this the fuckin Twilight Zone ?

    You can’t mention God in School but they can teach that it’s O.K. for two Faggots to marry each other and poke each other in the gum gum shoot ? Or that it’s O.K. for Heather to have two Mommy’s ?

    Finally in this segment of Rubberneck now:

    Liberals support Abortion on demand even without the consent of a young girls parent, but demand that the states not execute those sentenced to death. The scum of the earth should live but unborn babies should die because they’re inconvinient.

    Like I said, the Twilight Zone.

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Mr. Neck,

    As always you make several valid points. Just don’t call me “Glenny Boy” okay? I don’t wanna have to come down there and show ya that the reputation of us liberals all being “pussies” is a complete myth okay? LOL…

    Anyway…

    I’m a Christian myself Mr. Neck. Not sure if you knew that, but I am. As such, I recognise the biblical truths in a lot of what you talk about. Though personally, I don’t find it very Christian myself referring to homosexuals as “faggots.” Not at all.

    Personally, It’s not my own personal choice for a lifestyle, but until this country becomes a fundamentalist Christian theocracy (which I pray it never does), I will not support legislating the moral choices of others lest the tables are one day turned back on me and I am unable by law to make my own moral choices…which may well be different ones, but the governing principle remains the same.

    If you follow biblical prophecy at all Mr. Neck (and i suspect it’s likely you do), then you already know the end-time kingdom set up by the AntiChrist is going to be the ultimate “theocracy”.

    It’s just not going to be one terribly favorable to Christians. Which is why the rush of some very well meaning Christians to impose their will on those of a differing viewpoint personally astonishes me. I don’t think they fully realize the precedent they want to set may very well end up coming back to take a large bite out of their ass.

    Do you see what I’m getting at here?

    My point of view remains remarkably consistent, though you may fail to see it. Freedom is something that cannot be exclusive to a belief system, or else it becomes something that is no longer freedom at all.

    You can call this viewpoint “liberal,” “conservative” or whatever you like (and personally I hate the labels that politicians from both ends of the debate use to advance what are largely their own personal agendas which have little to do with “the rest of us”).

    But my point of view is simply that we live in this great, wonderful country where one of our most fundamental rights is the right to express ourselves freely. That to me is the beauty of America. And that is something I will fight for in whatever small way, blogging for whoever wants to read my crap on Blogcritics or whatever, I am able to while it still exists.

    Does this make any sense to you yet Mr. Neck?

    It’s why I admire Neil Young. Actually it’s why I admire YOU Mr. Neck, though we may not see eye to eye on every single thing.

    You speak your mind (as does our boy Neil), regardless of what others may think. I welcome your viewpoint here, even the parts I dont agree with, because in doing so an intellectual discourse…something unique to our democracy and something I want to see is continued to be protected at all costs…is encouraged.

    As I have said many times over the course of this discussion…and not as kiddingly or condecendingly as you may think…Aint America Great?

    Make sense at all to you?

    And I do hope you check out my Lennon thread. I’d be interested in your viewpoint, “unique or not”.

    Your opinion on anything I write about is always welcomed by me Mr. Neck.

    Aint America Great?

    -Glen

  • mr. shakeypants

    i think theres a post about liberal christians in mr. boyds future

  • Martin Lav

    The single greatest gift from Jesus to his Christian followers was the beatitudes. Yet most of his modern day descendants continue to follow Moses’ teachings. Post the 10 commandmants on the courthouse steps, an eye for an eye, laying down with beasts….etc….hell most modern day movies about Jesus focus on his death and destruction, not his life, his teaching his hope. Blood and guts sells. Any hollywood exec knows that.
    Don’t think we’ll be seeing any of the Beatitudes posted on the courthouse steps real soon.
    Blessed are the merciful…..doubt it.
    How about at the pentagon.
    Blessed are the peacemakers……nope.
    What about posting Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth posted at the border of the USofA. How about you post that there yourself Rubberneck? …. now that would be a nice Christian gesture!

    Aint Christianity great?

  • Rubberneck

    A Liberal Christian ? Hummmm. What a concept. Whether you know it or not Glen there is no such thing. It simply cannot be. It’s one thing to be a typical everyday sinner, you can over come that through the blood of Jesus but it’s a whole other thing to openly oppose and or mock God. Abortion is a great example of a mockery. Homosexuality is another great example. A person such as Hitler, Mao, Ho, Chi Min, Pol Pot, Kim, Jung Il ect…Glen there is a special place reserved for those cats.

    Anyway:
    “Until this country becomes a fundamentalist Christian theocracy”

    News Flash:
    It was and everything was dandy, not perfect but dandy. It was taught in the schools, believe it or not. Would they have taught in say oh, I don’t know, 1872 that it was kool for Heather to have two carpet munching Mommy’s ? Hell no. Why do the Libs think it’s O.K. now ? Saddom and Gammora anyone ? Do we really need to learn that type of lesson again ?

    It’s not that Liberals can’t speak out, by all means, feel free but they are not going to treat me as if I’m the crazy one or that I’m stupid or that I just don’t understand. I understand fully and perfectly. In fact Glen, I love when they speak out because it displays for all to see their colossal ignorance which more often than not is quite entertaining and hilarious to boot. Cindy Sheehan should have her own show, I’d watch, popcorn in hand. She could bring on guest ass clowns such as John Kerry who could show the world his fake self inflicted wounds. She could have Sharpton as a perm side kick, oh man, that would be something to see.

    On the Lennon thing, I went down to the Dakota the night he was shot and stood there for about 2 days. I was 15. I knew nothing about politics or Lennons communistic tendencies but as you well know, I do now. I used to think Imagine was a great tune. I even heard it explained by Father Bill Airs on 95.5 W.P.L.J. years and years ago as Lennon’s own way of describing, Heaven. To me, these days, it may as well be the Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.

    Back to the War:
    How do you have a ceasefire with terrorists? Ceasefires and peace movements don’t work with this enemy. Only eliminating them does. That reality is beginning to take root in Iraq and Israel. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad basically proposed the final solution; he wants the Sand People, I know you’re proud Glen, to become like Hitler when he was wiping out as many Jews as he possibly could. Now, do you deal with this guy –insane lunatic — or do you take him at face value ? Kofi Annan’s speech yesterday was meaningless, it was cliché-filled, and it was self-serving. But with talent on loan from God, I can sum it up in three phrases: ‘Israel is overreacting. The children are dying, and I am leading. No, I won’t resign. What a Crock of shit. Good typing to ya Glenn.

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Mr. Neck,

    First of all, please understand that no one here mistakes you for being “stupid.” I certainly know that I don’t.

    I’ve resisited engaging in a debate with you for the simple reason that I’ve gotten into these kinds of pissing contests (the battle of “right” vs “left” ideology) and the one thing I’ve learned from them is that nobody can ever win in such a debate.

    To me, its a waste of time when nine times out of ten both parties minds were made up long ago.

    Anyway, I’m not going to engage in that sort of debate now either. I suspect our minds are both pretty much made up. You love Rush Limbaugh for example, which is certainly your right. I think at best he is blowhard who loves nothing so much as the sound of his own voice, and at worst he is a well-paid mouthpiece for the GOP spin machine.

    On the other hand I love Neil Young, equally my right, and you pretty much think he has sold his soul to the commies and others whose soul aim is to subvert our great republic with poisonous ideas.

    Two very different points of view. But like I said, I doubt there is anything either of us can do to sway our opinions one way or another. So theres little point in trying.

    What I will say, is that I absolutely respect and will defend your right to expouse your own views even if I disagree with them. And again, this is my whole point…what makes America great, and what sets us apart from the totalitarian governments of the world is the fact that our system guarantees us this most fundamental right.

    It’s something I believe very, very strongly in and something that defines what makes a person a true patriot in my ever so humble opinion.

    Where else but America are say, Glen and Rubberneck for example (and I have a best friend right here in Seattle who shares your political world view to a TEE Mr. Neck)…anyway, where else are Mr. Boyd and Mr. Neck for example going to have am all out, no holds barred, frank discussion of these things without fear of reprisal? And where else are these same two guys, lets again call them Mr. Boyd and Mr. Neck, going to most likely sit down and have a good laugh and a beer afterwords?

    Thats my pont Mr. Neck. And by the way, if you ever make it up to Seattle, first rounds on me okay?

    One more thing I want to briefly talk about and then I’ll shut up for now. And thats the Christianity issue. I personally find no conflict whatsoever in being a Christian whose faith in Jesus is ROCK SOLID, and holding some views that might be called “liberal” (actually I think of myself as more of a “moderate” and hold views on some things I think you and I would more than agree on).

    My understanding of the Bible is the same as yours Mr. Neck. The parts dealing with sin do indeed put homosexuality in that category, just as they do many other things (far less talked about and exploited by politicians who know a hot button when they see one). I think abortion is an absolutely abhorrent practice as well.

    That said, I’ve also read the parts in the bible about how “believers” are to deal with sin. As believers, we are washed in the blood of Jesus. We are not perfect by any means, but we are forgiven. Thats my understanding of how it works.

    And where we encounter sin, we are to likewise “hate the sin, but love the sinner.” I see far too many using their belief in Christianity as an excuse to promote hatred (the “God Hate Fags” guy would be a good example of this) in such a way that those who otherwise might be persuaded to hear the message of the gospel are simply driven further and further away from it.

    Politicians use this message to divide people, much the same way racism has been used in the past (and continues to be in some quarters).

    The Jesus I know as my personal saviour is a God who loved us sinners so much he died for us. God the Father also gave us free will. The paths some choose are a matter of personal choice and something between themselves and God. It’s something that government has no business being involved in, at least in my view.

    And I am not going to actively “hate” someone based on who they sleep with. Besides…if we want to dive into the pool of sexual immorality, theres plenty of that to go around amongst the heterosexual community if we are going to take an absolute literalist view on that particular subject. I know I’ve done my share of sleeping around and that is something I believe referred to as adultery in the Bible. Too many of those pointing fingers, slinging arrows, and worse, need to take a closer look at their own house Mr. Neck.

    I sleep just fine at night very secure in my faith and very sure of my place with Jesus. Can every single politician who exploits age old divisions and prejudices in society for what is more often than not reasons which can be directly traced to their own blind ambitions claim the same?

    I think not.

    -Glen

    P.S. You said in your last post:

    “I know you’re proud Glen, to become like Hitler when he was wiping out as many Jews as he possibly could.”

    Mr. Neck, I love my Jewish brothers and I can’t believe you would make a statement like that about me. But I will tell you this…that type of genocide can be the end result of exploiting fears and inflaming passions as surely as that ghastly historical event surely proved. Next time, it may just be some other ostracized group who takes the fall. Whos next Mr. Neck?

    Gays? Christians?

    Think about it my friend. And peace be with you Mr. Neck.

    -Glen.

    The Beatitudes (from Latin, beatitudo, happiness) is the name given to the well-known, definitive and beginning, portion of the Sermon on the Mount of the Gospel of Matthew. Some are also recorded in the Gospel of Luke and Gospel of Thomas. In this section, Jesus describes the qualities of the citizens of the Kingdom of heaven (It refers to the reign or sovereignty of God over all things, as opposed to the reign of earthly or satanic powers), showing how each is/will be blessed. The Beatitudes do not describe many separate individuals, but rather the characteristics of those who are deemed blessed by God. Kodjak believes that this opening of the sermon was meant to shock the audience, as a deliberate inversion of standard values, but that today this shock value has been lost owing to the commonness of the text.

    Read them Rubberneck, don’t just post a summary of what Wikpedia says about them. The point is that Jesus summed up all the lessons/miracles/teachings of the his entire life during this 3 day peace festival on the Mount. It is the secret to eternal life and my point in bringing it up is, not too many Christians refer to it. Hell it would appear that you did not. The fact that it is documented in 3 different Gospels and also included in Paul’s letters and varying Roman documents lends credence to the importance of these teachings.

    That same Bible is filled with battles on behalf of God, is it not ? God never said “Let thine enemies shit upon you”. An Eye for an Eye, Tooth for a Tooth. Take Israel for instance: The sand monkey’s wanted land for peace. Israel said O.K. have the land but leave us alone in peace. Gave up Gaza, South Lebonon, dismantled settlements, Golon Heights, West Bank ect… What did they get for it ? Katusha Rockets right in the middle of Main Street, daily. Also kidnapped / Murdered Soldiers ect… There will never be peace until a total 100 percent victory. Only Victory will bring peace. The rag heads will never let Israel be. Never. Thus Israel has to wipe them out for good. The Bible said for Israel to wipe them out or they will be a thorn in their side forever. And so it is. Peace out Brotha’.

    I myself was focusing on the word of a man named Jesus, who supposedly was the Son of God. One Sermon he gave, well documented. Not the first half of the Bible written by men with all of their subjectivity and influences of the day, including the so-called desert nomads that weren’t like them that wrote it and the ones that Jesus came to contradict.

    Figures you’d love a Traitor. A guy with 3 Purple Hearts and no wounds. A guy that has a Dis-Honorable discharge due to his subversive activities against his own government. A guy Honored in the Vietnam War Memorial Museum. You love him ??? That just figures.

  • http://www.morethings.com/log Al Barger

    Now Rubberneck, that’s just not true when you say Kerry had no wounds. On at least one of those Purple Heart qualifying incidents, he absolutely had to have a band-aid. Why would he have needed a band-aid if he wasn’t wounded, huh?

  • Rubberneck

    Here’s the show I attended @ Jones Beach:

    09-09-1984, Jones Beach Music Theater, Wantagh, New York (Almost 85 anyway)
    w/ The International Harvesters
    Mama, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys / Are You Ready For The Country? / Motor City / Comes A Time / Hawks And Doves / Bound For Glory / Are There Any More Real Cowboys? / Amber Jean / Heart Of Gold / Too Far Gone / Roll Another Number / Southern Pacific / The Needle And The Damage Done / Helpless / California Sunset / It Might Have Been / Flying On The Ground Is Wrong / Soul Of A Woman / Field Of Opportunity / Old Man / Powderfinger / Get Back To The Country / Four Strong Winds

  • Rubberneck

    Oh I see, my bad. Got confused between “Are there any more real cowboys” “Mamma don’t let you babies grow up to be cowboys” “Are you ready for the country” “Get back to the conutry”

    My original statement should have referred to:

    “Mamma don’t let you babies grow up to be cowboys”. Hew’.

    My bad.

    Rubberneck.

  • Rubberneck

    Why would he have needed a band-aid if he wasn’t wounded, huh?

    I stand corrected again. Should self inflicted wounds count for Purple Hearts tho’ ? That is the question.

  • Rubberneck

    From # 73
    The big encore was “Mamma don’t let you babies grow up to be Cowboys”. Country music in the North East. But I stuck by this guy and took all the arrows my friends could sling.

    I did say that. I’m right even when I think I made a mistake. Damn I’m good.

  • Rubberneck

    FACT: The U.S. has enough oil in offshore deposits to equal 23 years of foreign imports — but we can’t get it because of the environmentalist lobby

    FACT: Global warming is good business. The federal government funds 99.5% of climate research to the tune of about $4 billion each year

    FACT: Hillary Clinton is breaking records raising money for her practically-guaranteed senate seat, meaning she will have plenty of money left over for her anticipated 2008 Presidential bid

    FACT: A government agency sponsored a drug conference that included a lecture titled “You Don’t Have To Be Clean and Sober… Or Even Want To Be”?

    FACT: The top 50% of income earners pay 96.5% of the federal income taxes, while the lowest 44% pay no federal income taxes.

    FACT: The federal government — with your tax dollars — subsidizes programs for kids to play golf at posh resorts

    FACT: Federal employees spent $16.4 billion in 2003 on government charge cards. Some of those charges included: country club fees, personal clothing, movie gift certificates and beer

    FACT: A national survey found that Democratic professors outnumber Republican professors 3 to 1 in economics, 28 to 1 in sociology, and 30 to 1 in anthropology

    FACT: At least 1,074,000 illegal aliens were arrested along the Mexican border in 2004, more than 2003 and 2002

    FACT: The federal government is subsidizing yoga research

  • Martin Lav

    Rubber,
    I stand by my original post #53, if you are a true Neil fan and stood by him even when your supposed friends were bashing him, then you my son are a “flip-flopper” and you must love John Kerry. It must grate you to no end to hear this great album of Neil in full throttle with the lyrics that cut you to the core. I mean this is a fantastic album and will go down as one of his best. Mark my words. You my friend will have to live with it the rest of you life. When Neil passes from this earth and the tributes that will far surpass anything ever done for the two drug addicts Johnny Cash and Ray Charles AND we find out with the benefit of sanity created by hindsight, that this BUSH war on TRUTH is/was a F’n disgrace, you will not be able to escape the FACTS that you rolled over on your HERO Neil. [Personal attack deleted]

  • Rubberneck

    War on truth ? Bush ? President Bush tells it like it is. Period. Like it is. You want to hear a Lie, listen to Harry Reed, if you even know who that is. As for this Album, appropriately wrapped in a garbage bag, going down as a great album, don’t make me fuckin’ laugh. Every song is a re-write of another song and the toughest cord he strums is a G. It’s off the Charts and has sold less than 200,000 copies. Reprise did not even recover cost. Again. That’s because it’s Garbage. Got that ?

  • IgnatiusReilly

    “RIGHT, I HAVE NO LIFE. I SHOULD HAVE REMEMBERED THAT.”

    That’s certainly apparent from this page.

  • IgnatiusReilly

    “President Bush tells it like it is.”

    Like when he said Harriet Miers was “exceptionally well-suited” for the Supreme Court.

    The album is actually wrapped in a brown paper bag, not a garbage bag. Please show the info you have about Reprise recovering their costs. It only took three days in the studio, so I’m not sure how much you think the budget was.

    Besides, I doubt Young was trying to make money off it since it was available for free on the Internet for days. I copied the stream.

  • Rubberneck

    Ahhh, Fa Navvv a la’

  • Rubberneck

    He gets 3 Mill per regardless of what it sells. I wouldn’t care what garbage I put out either with this circumstance.

  • Rubberneck

    AND WHO CARES ANYWAY. THE POINT IS HIS ALBUM IS ANTI AMERICAN PROPAGANDA. LET HIM GO TO CANADA AND WRITE ABOUT HOW PROUD HE IS THE TWO MEN MOUNTIES THAT MARRIED EACH OTHER. [Edited]

  • Martin Lav

    Mark my words Rubber.
    It won’t be denied.
    You will eat your words.

    Yes war on truth.
    Read something besides NewsMax or listen to something besides Rush and you may hear that truth. It will set you free and you can “flop” back to being a Neil Young fan.

  • zingzing

    men mounties? good for them. people should be allowed to marry who the want to marry.

    anti-american propaganda… so? how many people have written anti-war songs? do you hate them all?

    you know, it must suck to be a conservative or a republican or whatever. you have to hate every worthwhile artist… and you can’t go to school what for all those liberal professors… and the media is out to get you… and the gays are coming to fuck in your face… and women and blacks and poor people are taking all your money… and the mexican army is invading from the south… and terrorists have destroyed your life… and criminals are going to shoot you… and you have to act like you would be the first to sign up (if it weren’t for [this] and [that]) to go kill people… and you live in constant fear…

    sigh… it must be hard.

  • Rubberneck

    men mounties? good for them. people should be allowed to marry who the want to marry.

    God says otherwise.

    anti-american propaganda… so? how many people have written anti-war songs? do you hate them all?

    Yeah, I do.

    and you can’t go to school what for all those liberal professors

    Exactly. Jay Bennish comes to mind. We exposed his ass tho’, Ha fuckin’ ha. And that fake Indian Ward Churchill. Ah ha. He’s fake. NOT AN INDIAN.

    and women and blacks and poor people are taking all your money.

    They have equal rights, not more rights than me because I’m white. I don’t suffer from white guilt as you most likely do.

    the gays are coming to fuck in your face.

    Quote: Neil Young: You don’t want faggots handling your potatoes. Neither do I.

    and the mexican army is invading from the south.

    They have and it does not seem to bother you. Typical Liberal. People like you are why 9/11 happened. Remember that.

  • Rubberneck

    Through wastin’ my time here. Most of you will never get it.

    “God says otherwise.”

    Rubberbrain, God said nothing on the issue. Humans wrote the book. p.s. there is no God.

    “Through wastin’ my time here.”

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    “Through wastin’ my time here. Most of you will never get it.”

    On that note, I agree its time to give this whole thing a rest.

    The album’s off the charts. Mr. Neck. Done. History. And if you haven’t made your point(s) over the course of some 100 posts here (plus about that same number over at my other Neil Young article), well lets just say I don’t think anybody’s getting “converted,” anytime soon.

    Yup. Time to give this a rest and a proper burial.

    Anybody with me?

  • Smurphy

    Mr. Rubberneck,
    I am 100% all american. I raise the stars and stripes over my house every morning and lower them every night and when it rains, the post office dosn’t even do that around here. I’ve voted in each and every election since I was 171/2, started with the Iowa Caucus, for Bill Clinton.
    I’ve been listening to Neil Young, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Phil Ochs and all of those great singers since I was in diapers. My parents were good old dope smokin’ hippies. Or as you’d call them Commie Pinko stallinist athiest ant-americans. They protestes Vietnam, just like I protest Iraq.
    I do LOVE neil’s new album. Even if you disagree, he does not mock my America in any way what-so-ever.
    I beleive in God and Jesus Christ, the more people that do the better, but I won’t force anybody too. Islam is just as fine a church as any christian denomination. I love all christians too. I’m gussing if it’s not protestant with you it’s evil, and you seem like the type to tell Latter-day Saints that they’re going to burn in all for believing Gordon Hinckly is a prophet of God. I love everybody.
    War is sometimes neccessary. This time it wasn’t.
    Neil is just pointing that out, as well as other bits of info point out Bush as the Old Serpant that he is.
    You clearly know nothing about real politics in America, nor the way of life of most americans, or even the American Way.
    Sure I would be pissed off if my wife wanted to get an abortion, I think it is wrong, but I think it’s wrong to force that on anyone else. I say if you want an abortion, you otta be able to get one. What do you know about islam? Have you read the Quaran?
    Now, Mr. Rubberneck,
    I will tell you a few things about George Walker Bush.
    1. He’s in the pockets of Big Oil
    2. He’s gotten us into an illegal immoral war in Iraq that has me afraid for my kids.
    3. 9/11 happened because of US imperialism. We established permanent bases in Suadi Arabia, that was Osama’s last straw.
    4. Sadaam Hussain was a miserable son-of-a-bitch, but didn’t warrant his removal and subsequent plummit of Iraq into utter caos.
    5. You have alot to learn about liberals, and America.
    6. You need to listen to “With God on Our Side” by Bob Dylan.
    7. I don’t know what you thought of Dr. BLT’s filth, but I found it to be a worthless peice of trash not worth the paper and ink that it was penned with, correction, crayon and wall BLT is a child.
    Finally,
    8. Here’s to Treason,
    If that’s what I’m commiting by saying that America needs to rid itself of the Rep. controlled House and Senate, and oust Bush via Impeachment then so be it. That’s what George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock and all of the other 55 signers of the Declaration of Independance were commiting by penning their names to the resolotion that gave birth to The United States of America.

    Now, if he dosn’t come back and read that, know that it wasn’t just for him, I wanted to share my opinion with the lot of you. Though I just found this Thread tonight, I’m glad I got at least this word in. If you agree I love ya for it, if you disagree (peacefully, if not silently) I love ya for it.

    –Roger and Out, Good Buddy

    Back on topic, good review on this CD. I am readying to hear much of it live this weekend played with CSN. It should be good and hopefully loud!
    Shock and Awe

  • http://wp.blogcritics.org Timmy

    Neil Young is using you to sell records. His socialist heritage is a model for today’s American Left. That way you can make a political statement and line Young’s pockets at the same time. Doesn’t that feel good?

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Martin.

    Thanks for the compliment. CSNY are playing Seattle (White River) tonite and unfortunately I won’t be attending (too broke at the moment even for lawn seats). You’ll have to let me know it is…I hear about half of LWW is played nightly. Should be nice and loud.

    Timmy,

    The left vs right thing has been covered to death in this thread. I really doubt there is much you can add to the 100 or so posts Rubberneck put up on the subject anyway. Neil Young’s record is off the charts so it’s kind of a non-issue at this point anyway.

    Thanx for the comment. But most of us (even including Mr. Neck himself I think) have decided its time to move on. You may wanna consider doing the same.

  • Mookey

    The Democrats’ agenda is accessible college for everybody, health care for everybody, retirement security for everybody. It’s just big government, folks, it’s all it is, nanny state big government.

    Their playbook remains 30 years old folks.

  • Mookey

    I don’t think the world yet realizes what the objectives of these militant Islamofascists are. It’s going to take awhile before the world wakes up. The world is always slow to wake up like hippys that just smoked one of Neils Bones.

  • Mookey

    Everybody knows that what ended the Cold War was our threat to spend even more on anti-missile systems. It was called Star Wars, and the Soviets knew they couldn’t keep up, and they were imploding of their own immorality at the same time

  • Mookey

    Byron ‘Helmet Head’ Dorgan and the Democrats keep up their assault on that great threat to America: Wal-Mart

  • Liblubber

    And this exactly what to do with Neil Young again Rubberneck, or excuse me…”Mookey”?

  • Martin Lav

    Hey Rubberneck or Mookey or whomever you are pretending to be today……
    Went to the concert and the young crowd seemed to love Neil’s new stuff. I stand by my prediction, greatest stuff to be produced in a long while……. CSN and mainly Y were hot. Great show last night. Passion is rising and you and your silly tribe that constantly leads us into War will eventually be forced to wake up.
    Reagan’s buildup was a part of the Soviet’s demise, but the other factors, like their own failed system, radio free America, the Pope John Paul II (remember Poland?) ALL contributed, but the point is we didn’t force anything on them, didn’t go to war, didn’t overthrow a dangerous regime…….all things your King Bush claimed and we LET democracy take hold on it’s own.

  • Smurphy

    IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH NEIL’S ALBUM BUT…

    I have a Ph. D. in Economics, so listen up.

    The reason the Soviet Economy collapsed was because they always favored guns over butter. Their massive military budget was their undoing, it led to corruption in the government through back door political deals with arms producers. That is precisely what we are on the road too, look at The Carlyle Group and Haliburton, two companys tied into the US military, who are awarded contracts WITHOUT BIDS. As a result the Bush family, and Mr. Cheney yield millions in prophits. The Soviets knew we would never create a Star Wars system, because as stupid as Ronald Reagan was, he wouldn’t BREAK TREATY to produce an anti-missile system, like Bush did. And as yet the ratio of faiure to succsess is far too small for it be worth wile.
    And I won’t even get started on Wal-Mart.
    I suggest a Book, for everyone:
    The New Nuclear Danger: George W. Bush’s Military Industrial Complex
    By: Dr. Helen Caldicott
    Have a good day Mr. Mookey or Mr. Rubberneck, whoever you are.

    Back to Neil,

    Mr. Boyd,
    In my last post, which I assumed would be my last. I failed to off you my kudos on your wonderful reveiw of Neil’s new album. Great Job Sir!

    Martin,
    I’m glad to hear the band is getting fired up. Since I’m going to see them in st. paul.
    I’m also glad to hear that the listeners are getting fired up over the new record, I agree that it will surely be regarded as one of neil’s greatest works, and I hope the listeners take it to heart, when they’re working, when they’re eating, and always.

    –Roge and Out

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Smurph,

    Thanks for the kind words on my review. The book sounds very interesting and is something I’ll definitely have to look into.

    Martin,

    Glad to hear the band sounding so energetic. A guy I work with went here in Seattle on Thursday (and didn’t make it to work the next day…LOL). He said much the same thing. It sounds like they are firing on all four cylinders right now. I’m just sorry I couldn’t make it this time around.

    As I said in my original review, before all of the umm, “rubbernecking” began going on around here…(sorry, couldn’t resist…LOL), the voices of protest in music and culture appear to be rising again. As long as this gets people both talking, but more importantly, “thinking”, this is a good thing. A good honest dialog will eventually force the truth to float to the top of the muck in my opinion.

    Thanks for all of the comments that hopefully helped contribute in some small way to getting that started.

    -Glen

  • Simonbarsinister

    No matter what Neil Young puts out there’s always someone that says “this is his greatest album ever” . So paaaleeeezzzzzzeeeee with that bullshit. This Living with War is just another 3 cord special plugged into a fuzz pedal. The words are straight from the pages of the Al Qaeda book of simple press releases. Be a commy, who gives a fuck. That’s why you fuckers ain’t won an election in a decade.

    (Rubberneck) Post 111
    THERE IS NO PEACE TREATY IN KOREA TO THIS DAY, AND BULLETS FLY, EVERY DAY.

    In the News (7/31/06) Yahoo.com

    SEOUL, South Korea – Soldiers from North Korea and South Korea exchanged fire along their border overnight, but no one was hurt, a South Korean military official said Tuesday. The shooting happened shortly before sunset when North Korean soldiers fired two bullets toward a South Korean guard post in the eastern part of the Demilitarized Zone, said Maj. Kim Tae-hoon of the Joint Chiefs of Staff office.

    Bullets fly every day just like Rubberneck said. It seems he’s always right.

    Hey Glen,
    It really was a great show. Took my 18 year old daughter and she loved it too. The show went long and it went hard, with some good soft music thrown in for sheer beauty and easy pleasure. Neil’s 3 chords and a fuzz pedal contraption kicked the shit out of Rockin in the Free World. The feedback distorted winddown closing of the song, kicked back up a notch with a Trumpet solo of taps, back into the chorus of RITFW, just killed. It went on for at least 10 mins and the crowd was mesmerized.
    Neil Young is a electric guitar/feedback God.
    No one does it better!

    Peace.

    Martin & Glen,
    What did you guys think of Prairie Wind? I kinda liked the mix of instramentation, and some of the lyrics, especially on “No Wonder” and “The Painter.” But, the majority of the album didn’t really do it for me. I really liked the DVD “Heart of Gold” though.

    –smurph

  • Martin Lav

    I bought the CD after I had gone to the Theater twice, to see the movie. With the visual firmly entrenched, the CD was much better recieved by my ears. I like it on the whole, but not enough to keep in the disc rotation. I don’t think it’s that I like harder rock more either, cause I do like Harvest Moon, but the LWW gets way more play time between the two.

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    I liked Prairie Wind quite a bit when it first came out, and again found myself drawn back to it after the amazing Heart Of Gold film. I especially like the self-reflective tone of the lyrics and the way Neil confronts the issues of mortality on PW.

    That having been said, once LWW came out, I’ve yet to go to back to PW. The way LWW just jolts you right out of your chair makes it just a little too easy to forget that “other record” he’s done this past 12 months.

    At least for now it does.

    Ask me again in a few months though….LOL

    # 14 PAUL LIVERPOOL

    “After the Garden” is a reference to:
    1. The Garden of Eden (possibly located by Biblical scholars within modern-day Iraq)
    2. Woodstock (reference “purple haze”)
    3. “Johnny’s garden” by Manassas (reference “haircut” and “shoeshine”)
    4. Symbolic for a collective loss of innocence
    5. A combination of all the above? – or something else!
    WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG

    RUBBERNECK WAS RIGHT AGAIN ! RUBBERNECK WAS RIGHT AGAIN !

    # 11 RUBBERNECK

    What does “After the Garden” mean ? Is it like an environmentalwacko tune implying there’s no more trees or something ?

    IT IS AN ENVIRONMENTALWACKO TUNE ! SEE NEIL’S GARAGE PAGE. IT LINKS TO THE VIDEO. RUBBERNECK WAS RIGHT AGAIN !!!!!! GOD BLESS YOU RUBBERNECK.

  • Smurphy

    About Prarie Wind:
    Something I’ve noticed about PW is that every time I re-watch Heart of Gold, and take in Neil’s commentary, I gain a little more of a reverence for each of the songs on the album, but Living With War has alot more highpoints for me. I think it’t better overall, and I certainly can’t get my way past the claer message it delivers.

    To Mookey:
    I looked all over neil’s Living With War Today page and found no such video, anywhere. I assume it was taken down or else I missed it. But, to start with the obvious “environmental wacko” does fit into the “something else” category which Mr. Liverpool allowed for, meaning to plaster “WRONG WRONG WRONG” all over his post, even if it is what you claim it is, is in fact wrong, therefore:
    MOOKEY IS WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!
    To augment this, I’d like to suggest that “After the Garden” means whatever the hell you take it to mean. I’m sure Neil had alot of ideas in mind when he penned the lyric.
    Now, on a related note.
    I don’t like you’re tone. You sound like someone who foolishly questions global warming, deforestization, and a number of other issues with which I am more passionate than you could ever comprehend. Steven Hawking, a man who is by leaps and bounds smarter than Neil Young, George W. Bush, me, and you, has confirmed his faith of global warming and it’s dangers numerous times, HERE or HERE (a video) and the rainforests as well as our own nation’s trees are in danger more and more everyday of neocon hypocrites like Bush, and all of his partners in crime.
    Speaking of hypocrites…
    This “religous right” I’ll tell you right now, its a crock of shit. They’re against saving our trees and our oceans, preserving our natural climate, all God’s creation HYPOCRITES! They’re against abortion because it’s murder, but they’re against prenatal care? Something that is designed to better the life of the baby? I’ll tell you what they’re for, INSURANCE COMPANIES, the one’s who’d drop the bill on both, HYPOCRITES! They’re for illegalization of gay marriage because it’s against God’s way? What about AGENCY, the thing that says you can’t force other people to do rightiously, that they make the choice themselves, don’t they preach that anymore? HYPOCRITES! They say love thy neighbor as you love yourself, but they denounce Mexicans, Canadians, CUBANS, and Arabs in countless inhuman and ignorant ways. HYPOCRITES! The Christian Right is just a front to get money and votes for the putrid scum they endorse politically. Every abortionist, cuban, homosexual, environmentalist, and liberal is better than combined spectrum of every religous right politican that has servered us, and I use that term VERY LOOSLY, in the last 40 years.
    The right wing, Mr. Mookey, your beloved neocon infested right wing, is not worth your time. The bastarts you’d have us ellect have only one agenda, their own. Have you ever heard of The Project for the New American Century? It is planning for nothing short of world domination, or armageddon trying, and it cannot be allowed to happen. This war, it’s marketed to the nation as a race war in hopes that the religeous right, or what it has been perverted into by these masters of war. But it’s far more than that, it’s a foothold in the mideast. The invasions of Iran, Syria, virtually every mideastern nation can be staged from permanent U.S. bases in Iraq. This is not my rant, but actually published withing the pages of the new american century; click here for the goods on PNAC. Their plans also consider useage of NUCLEAR WEAPONS, you know the WMD’s that no madman can be allowed to posess? Can you imagine a god who would smile upon this? Maybe some fucked up god, but not mine. They want a monopoly on nuclear weapons so that they can monopolize the fear. Fear is their only real power, their only tool.
    “Why, of course, the people don’t want war…But, after all, it is the leaders of the Country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliment or a Communist dictatorship…voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”
    –Hermann Goering
    They need it to scare us, the American people to sacrifice out rights, well I’ll tell you something “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Benjamin Franklin said that in 1755, and it’s still true.

    I’ll grant you this, the Bush gives me a reason to get up every moning.

    GOD BLESS NEIL YOUNG,
    GOD BLESS THE USA,

WHAT DID WE DO 1000 YEARS AGO TO HEAT THE PLANET ? THE SAME FUCKERS SAYING IT’S TOO HOT WERE SAYING THE ICE AGE IS COMING IN THE MID TO LATE 70’S.

    YOU AIN’T FOOLING NOBODY.

    All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.

    YOU JUST DON’T GET IT DO YOU TOUGH GUY ? YOU LIBS ARE THE FIRST MOTHERFUCKERS THE RAG HEADS WILL TAKE OUT. YOU ALL ARE THE REASON THEY HATE US SO MUCH.

    YOU HAVE NO TROUBLE STICKING A CROSS IN A PISS BOTTLE. YOU HAVE NO TROUBLE PUTTING ELEPHANT SHIT ON A PICTURE OF THE VIRGIN MARY AND THEN MAKING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE PAY FOR IT THROUGH THE NEA ! WHY DON’T YOU MOTHERFUCKERS DO THAT TO MUSLIMS ? I’LL TELL YOU WHY, BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT THEY’D DO TO YOU, THAT’S WHY. CHRISTIANS ARE JUST AN EASY TARGET FOR YOU [Edited]

    Have you seen the mainstream media raising these doubts about Condoleezza Rice’s competence? ‘Is she up to the job?’ I think there’s a little racism in this questioning and little sexism, obviously. I know such was never asked of that utter walking failure, Madeleine Communist lover Albright.

    Condoleezza Rice for president ! Keep the country strong, vote Republican.

    WAR!
    On Neil Young!

    Neil Young has written a new CD full of Bush
    bashing venom called “Living WIth War.” First
    “Southern Man”, now “Impeach the
    President”… This is girl-voiced aggression
    against everything Jackie and Dunlap stand
    for. It will not, it cannot stand.

    Jackie and Dunlap have declared War! On Neil
    Young! What can you do to help with the war
    effort? Buy every Neil Young CD you can find,
    just load up on ‘em, even Arc, and send them
    to:

    Red State Update
    PO Box 12181
    Murfreesboro, TN 37129

    When they get a mailbox full, Jackie and
    Dunlap will burn ‘em up, tape it, and put it on
    the internet for you to enjoy.

    Remember: We don’t want no baby fire!

    There’s nobody with half a brain that can say our Middle East policy was a success before now. Madeleine Albright can pat herself on the back and get on television and tell us how great things were when she ran the show, but the truth is she didn’t solve anything. We are not terrorists. We do not target innocent civilians. We don’t torture wantonly. We don’t do any of the things we’ve been accused of by people whose moral compasses are upside down — it’s very simple. Why can’t you commy’s be on our side for a change instead of our enemies ?

    You’ve got to be kidding me! I just checked out the RedstateUpdate website and you mean to tell me that all along this has just been one big joke?

    Rubberneck…Mookey…well over 100+ posts to promote some public access show making fun of Rednecks?

    Well, I gotta admit that the site is pretty funny so my hats off to you guys assuming you are actually the ones behind it.

    I’ll even recommend the link myself:

    Now of course, if you aren’t the one promoting it and you actually think these guys are serious….

    Well I guess not everyone got in line the day the Good Lord was handing out the brain tissue.

    It is a very funny site though. Well done gentlemen…you even got the basic look down with the overalls, the beer cans and all. Funny stuff indeed. Kudos Gentlemen.

  • Barkley

    Wow….Just spent a good 45 mins of my day roller coastering my blood pressure through this thread. What started as a thoughtful review of a controversial new album by an old and beloved friend Neil Young took me through waves of anger and nods of agreement. Whew. Still reeling a bit as I type, but type I will.
    I absolutely do not agree with our troops being in Iraq, or anywhere else in the middle east for that matter unless the American public policy becomes…you guys have the Oil and we have decided that we are just going to take it and if ya don’t like it why we’ll just kill you. These folks aren’t the American Indian and they are not just going to shuffle off to some scrap of scrub and rock that we set up for them and hide after we beat up on them for a few years. I think that our leaders have their heads waaaay up their butts and have little in the way of world history to have thought that we could waltz over, kill a really BAD guy, and whip a little democracy on a land that has been warring together for a thousand years over who gets the better sandpile and waterhole and they would just bow down and wash our white American feet. If they wanted rid of Saddam, a black ops unit could have handled that quietly and inexpensively and the Iraquis and Sunnis’ et al could have worked out the aftermath without American casualties and BILLIONS of dollars spent every month ad infinum. But of course then W couldn’t have shown his Daddy who has the bigger balls, and after all that’s what it was really all about. Sr didn’t do the deed during his reign, so when the opportunity for the kid to show him up came along…well should we have expected anything any different from the spoiled rotten kid?. The fact that more than 3000 of our countrymen died, and the landscape was changed forever IN OUR OWN COUNTRY at the hands of a man who is STILL walking and talking infuriates me every time these debates come up. Saddam is a dictatorial shithead no question, but Saddam didn’t order the deaths of Americans in their own country did he. SO WTF are we doing in Iraq? Got nothing to do with the deaths on 9/11.
    Did we learn absolutely NOTHING from Vietnam? Evidently not. Rubber discussed just wiping them all out…well as I said, these aren’t the American Indians. The very core of most of these folks beliefs are that to die for their cause is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon them. Much like the VC and NVA of SE Asia did 40+ years ago, and I believe that most of those who commented on this aspect of the debate remember how successful we were defeating THAT attitude. Therefore, we now have an “action” that has strongly contributed to taking our country from the biggest surplus in history to the biggest deficit in history and is putting my childrens and eventually their childrens country deeper in debt with every passing minute! Thank you my elected leaders for thinking all of this through…and btw…when do I get to see Osama’s head on a stick in downtown NYC where it belongs? Didn’t see anything about that in your eye for an eye rant or your pro-Republican tirades.

    And just so that there is no mistake. I am neither Democrat nor Republican. I vote for the candidate that seems to have the country or communities best interests in mind and at heart and whose voting record and/or platform shows that, and when they fall into the status quo and start serving government instead of the people I vote for someone else assuming of course that there is someone else to vote for. Sadly, not enough people realize that the Constitution that we live under grants the people the power to trash the whole money grubbing, power mongering, personal agenda pushing thing and start over with a group of people who wish to use the 17 percent of my hard earned money stolen from me every paycheck and use it to actually better the lives of each and every CITIZEN of what should be the greatest country on earth. Perhaps through this new media age the TRUE silent majority in this country will find a way to get together and make it happen. Doubtful that it will happen in my lifetime, but perhaps in my childrens.

    Rubber says that Oil companies only make 9 cents a gallon. Well then we must be using one hell of a lot of gas for just Exxon to net 3 BILLION dollars a QUARTER in profit over the last year +. Are you kidding me? I’m paying 3.00 a gallon in Fairbanks Alaska…18 minutes from a freaking REFINERY and these crooks are making BILLIONS. Fuel oil is so expensive I’m concerned about being able to heat my home in Jan and Feb this winter. 200 gallons= nearly $600.00 and durng those months it is common to use that much just to keep the house at 70 degrees , yet BONUSES for the top dogs at the oil companies were in the millions last year. It’s BS of the highest degree.
    BTW Rubber, ANWR cannot support the oil needs of our country, but more oil in the pipeline would help. Still, at best we might get 20- 25% covered (it is 12-15% as we speak} Although I am very much in favor of CAREFULLY tapping into the puddles up there that we already know exist and CAREFULLY searching for more so as not to irreversibly damage the last great frontier in our country none of it will matter if the price of oil, and natural gas, remains at a point that financially cripples those who need it to live and work. There is also an INCREDIBLE amount of natural gas going to waste every day up there, yet because of greed, bringing that resource to the people of our country has been stymied for the last thirty years and is still to this day. We are closer than we have ever been to making that happen, but if the oil companies have their way it will be done to the detriment of my state and the people as a whole. It’s not about fulfilling the needs of the people, it is about money…always.

    Awful lot of religous talk throughout this thread as well. All I can say, is that I find only one RULE given to us by Jesus in his teachings, and that was to love one another. Nowhere in the various commentary did I hear that. Quite the contrary unfortunately. So I quickly lost all patience and found my blood pressure rising quite high during those posts. Jesus lived and preached tolerance of all, no matter what their lifestyle choices may have been ie. Jesus commingled with prostitutes even though the Commandments state that Adultery is a sin and surely their best paying customers were making them adulterers for pay. Get it? And yes, when he was young he lost his temper with the shylocks in the temple, but I figure he was sticking up for his Dad in that one, and he was human after all.
    The fact that you and others do not agree with the life choices that God’s gift of free will allows some people to make doesn’t give you the right or the responsibility to condemn them as wrong. Jesus didn’t and I don’t either. There are many attitudes and activities in this sea of humanity that I find myself in that I do not choose for myself, but I do not judge others based on their lifestyle choices. Rather on the kind of person that they are and sadly Rubber, although I do agree with some of your ideas, I do not agree with how you choose to think about them or those who do not feel the same way that you do.
    If you do not agree with a persons’ choices and believe that they are hurting their pathway to “heaven”, than we are instructed to pray for them, not condemn them. But I only spent the first twenty or so years of my life in various Protestant churches and studied Old and New Testament religion in college, so I don’t know s**t from shinola in regards to what is right or wrong doctrinally.

    Mookey, or whoever you are, if you don’t think global warming is real, come on up to Alaska and I’ll take you to a spot where I stood on a Glacier sixteen years ago, and then we can hike the two miles back and stand where whats
    left of that Glacier is now..16 years later. Global warming is real my friends and whether it is a cyclic earth thing, or something that we are playing a big part in causing is not the point. The point is that all of our lives are now and in the immediate future being affected by it, and there is no changing that. It will take a worldwide change of attitude to slow down what is happening at an incredible pace right now, and that ain’t gonna happen. So invest in sunscreen and floppy hat making companies and get used to sweating a lot more. If the liberals et al think that buying that $5000.00 overpriced hybrid is going to change a thing. Well, whatever helps ya sleep at night I guess.
    Ok, I’ve calmed down now so i’ll quit typing after this.
    Glenn, I cannot agree with you more that the freedom to express our views openly whether ignorant or not is one of the most important freedoms that the forefathers of our country provided us. I’m glad I found this forum to experience just that and I look forward to getting pissed off again soon…lol.

    God bless you all and to all a good night….

    Mr. Barkley,

    Well don’t sugar coat your true feelings there okay buddy? LOL…

    Yeah this thread really has become something else hasn’t it? The most amazing thing to me is how ANYBODY can get themselves so riled up about an album that came out in April, has long since dropped off the record charts, and is really pretty much yesterdays news at this point.

    I mean we might as well as be carrying on about John Lennon’s War Is Over campaigning in the sixties.

    Anybody with this much time and energy to devote some 100+ plus posts to this subject (or even the thirty or so that the “new guy” Mookey has put up, assuming he really is a “new guy”), especailly coming some four months after the album came out and has long since dropped off the charts…

    Well that person clearly needs to get out more. Only a month or so of summer left, so theres still time.

    Or better yet, produce some more of that hilarious stuff on the Redstate Update site if you want to do something more productive. Now that was some funny shit (loved the Martin Scorsese and Levon Helm puppets).

    Anyway, I enjoyed reading your thoughts Mr. Barkley. Thanks for the comment.

    -Glen

  • Smurphy

    Wow! HOLY HANNA, my god in heaven WTF? I leave town for on a 2 day trip to visit family and I get 8 posts from Mookey that I just have to repy to.

    I’ll start off by kindly asking you to stick the namecalling up your ass where it belongs.

    Next, I’ll say for the record that I don’t think Mookey is Rubberneck, but that he sure as anything makes himself look like it with all the irratic posts, freak capitolizing spells and namecalling, and hysteric slander and all. So mabye if you would quit acting just like him and be your own man instead, people would beleive you.

    Now, on to the real $h*t slinging:

    Quote:#166 Mookey: They’re for illegalization of gay marriage because it’s against God’s way?

    WHEN WAS IT EVER LEGAL? [Edited]

    REPLY:
    I didn’t say it was ever legal, I just said the RIGHT/NEO-CONS want it illegal, and since there has never been any law to address it directly, it has never been legal or illegal, [Edited].

    Quote [paraphrased]:#165 Smurphy(me):
    I looked all over neil’s Living With War Today page and found no such video, anywhere. I assume it was taken down or else I missed it.

    YOU SPENT THE WHOLE DAY LOOKING ON NEILS SITE? DAMN YOU MUST BE DUMB!

    After the Garden right in the middle of the page.

    GOD BLESS RUSH LIMBAUGH, ANN COULTER, THE U.S. OF AMERICA

    REPLY: I looked all over neil’s blog page: Living With War Today, I didn’t spend all day looking there, I spent about 10 minutes looking there, I have a life beyond this thread, unlike you it would seem…anyways, I looked again and I did see, but you know what, I said I could have missed it GET THE FUCK OFF MY BACK! and may God have mercy on Rush and Ann’s misguided souls!

    Quote [paraphrase]: #168 Mookey: YES RUBBERNECK RIGHT, After the Garden is an ENVIRONMENTALWACKO TUNE! THEY[liberals] DON’T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT TREES THE TREES AND THAT OTHER SHIT IS JUST AN EXCUSE. YOU FUCKERS ARE THE REASON FOR HIGH GAS PRICES. YOU COMMUNISTS BLAME THE OIL COMPANY PROFITS. WHAT A CROCK OF SHIT. THEY MAKE 9 CENTS A GALLON. 9 FUCKIN CENTS ONLY SOMETHING THAT COSTS US $3.30 A GALLON. I WOULDN’T DO IT IF I WERE THEM. I’D BE LIKE, FUCK THAT. THE GOVERNMENT GETS MOST OF THE REST OF THE TAKE AND GIVES IT AWAY TO ILLEGAL MEXICAN WELFARE AND FOOD STAMPS AND HEALTH CARE AND OTHER FAILED SOCIAL PROGRAMS SO YOU COMMYLIBS CAN FEEL GOOD.

    WE COULD NOT CHANGE THE CLIMATE IF WE WANTED TO. WE COULD NOT KILL THE BIRDS IF WE TRIED. HOTTEST IT’S BEEN IN 1000 YEARS ? WHAT S.U.V.’s DID THEY HAVE 1000 YEARS AGO ? WHAT DID WE DO 1000 YEARS AGO TO HEAT THE PLANET ? THE SAME FUCKERS SAYING IT’S TOO HOT WERE SAYING THE ICE AGE IS COMING IN THE MID TO LATE 70’S.

    REPLY: You know what I think, I think Rubberneck was right, to him and some others it’s an environmental whacko tune But to me, it is a hell of a lot more. That collumn on neil’s page ant that video are not neil saying that it’s environmental, it him confirming that to some people it is. To me is a lot more. Oil companys make 9 cents do they…BULL SHIT!!!! How the fuck has exxon turned record profits hu? they make billions of dollars per quarter, THEIR U.S. PROFITS ARE RECORD HIGH don’t try to feed me some shit about people buying billions of dollars more gas this year than they have in the past, that’s oil company propaganda bull shit. If you did any reserch you’d know that the Romans had massive fires the size of small citys burning all the time, relasing tons of chemicals into the atmosphere that caused warming, do you think maybe that had anything to do with it? Roman S.U.V.s were causing the warming then. EXPERTS NOW, you read that right NOW say that we’re fucking up the environment, and by we I mean humans, not liberals. WE CARE ABOUT TREES! DON’T FUCK WITH ME, WHEN IT COMES TO STUFF I BELEIVE IN, LIBERALS, AT LEAST THE ONES LIKE ME CARE ABOUT TREES, NEO CONS DON’T TEND TO GIVE A SHIT ABOUT THEM. I don’t think illegal’s should get welfare, and I don’t give them any, I think that we need to reform lots of gov. programs, but I don’t think the Bush regime is taking care of any of them, they’re too busy with their precious war, thier war they started on lies. “Iraq has weapons of mass destruction”–Remeber that? Where the fuck are they, did Saddam eat them? He’s a miserable bastard, true enough now as it was when reagen was sending him money and weapons, if you do your homework.

    Quote:#169 Mookey: All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.

    YOU JUST DON’T GET IT DO YOU TOUGH GUY ? YOU LIBS ARE THE FIRST MOTHERFUCKERS THE RAG HEADS WILL TAKE OUT. YOU ALL ARE THE REASON THEY HATE US SO MUCH.

    YOU HAVE NO TROUBLE STICKING A CROSS IN A PISS BOTTLE. YOU HAVE NO TROUBLE PUTTING ELEPHANT SHIT ON A PICTURE OF THE VIRGIN MARY AND THEN MAKING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE PAY FOR IT THROUGH THE NEA ! WHY DON’T YOU MOTHERFUCKERS DO THAT TO MUSLIMS ? I’LL TELL YOU WHY, BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT THEY’D DO TO YOU, THAT’S WHY. CHRISTIANS ARE JUST AN EASY TARGET FOR YOU.

    REPLY: You’re the one who just doesn’t get it. The reason some of them hate us is because we’ve fucked them over so much in the past, not libs, all of us. Look what the army’s doing in Darfur, the civilain’s we’re messing with all over Iraq, the bs in Abu Graib, it’s not the liberals doing any of that. Liberals didn’t put the permanint bases in Saudi Arabia. No, I don’t have any trouble “STICKING A CROSS IN A PISS BOTTLE” a cross is just a symobol, a symbol of some branches of Cristianity, I don’t use it, I don’t have anything against anybody who does, and that why I would never “STICK A CROSS IN A PISS BOTTLE.” I have no trouble with anybodys art, and that’s what it is, art, and if it’s going to be put on display for the american people, I have nothing against tax money being spent on it. I wouldn’t support or attack an elephant pheces portrait of Mohamed either. I am against the destruction of the oldest know Quaran, which was kept in the musium of Bagdad though, the U. S. military destroyed the oldest know copy of the Quran, google it, that is unforgiveable. Christians are no easy trget for me. I don’t target myself. I am a Christian, I belive in God, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost, thank you very much, I also beleive that people are free to believe in who or what they may, and that god will not judge them by their belief in him, but rather by their character and how they’ve lived.

    Condoleezza Rice for president ! Keep the country strong, vote Republican.

    REPLY: I agree, Conde For Prez! I wouldn’t vote for her, just like I never voted for Bush, not because I’m sexist or racist, because I don’t agree. I think it might be a little racist, and a little sexist for the media to question her too much, but they should question everybody in office a bit, just to make sure they are doing what they are expected to do, that is the media’s job. But they can’t be talerated in doing it too much if the people aren’t doing what they should be. Remember that episode of 60 minutes that broke watergate? the one that nixon threatened CBS not to air?

    No quote for 173’s spam post, just a reply.

    REPLY: GOOD, waste money, give all you can to neil, maybe do the same for the DNC too. Waste time, and effort, all just a book burning maybe you guys can put on your white hoods and sheets when you do it too.

    Quote:#175: Mookey: I think the Hezbos are in much worse shape than anyone dare discuss. Do you think if the Israelis were getting their clocks cleaned anyone would care to stop it? Hell no! Especially you Dope smoking Maggit Infested FM / Neil Young types.

    God Bless George W. Bush, Rush Limbaugh, Rubberneck , Ann Coulter and all the other true Americans.

    REPLY: I don’t give a shit about it. I wouldn’t try to stop it, I wouldn’t help it happen. George W. Bush, Rush Limbaugh, Rubberneck, Ann Coulter, and all other incidious neocons need God’s mercy.

Any torture on our belhalf is wrong, as well as illegal. It cannot be allowed. I refuse to allow my government to torture in my name. I am not a communist. I don’t think you have any clue what it means to be a communist, I think your entire perception of all things related to the governmet in this country, liberals, conservatives, communists and everone else is completly screwed and perverted.

    To Barkley,
    I agree with virtually everything you’ve said. I too am not a democrat or a republican. I can say with some certainty that I am a Liberal though. I apreciated your input,
    Thanks

    I think this thread has grown into something else. It’s gone from being about a Neil Young album, to a political rant. I’m willing to spend a few minutes a day to put in my bit, but Mr. Mookey seems almost obsessed. I’m awe struck.

    Mookey, continue as long as you please, but keep it civil, can the namecalling, I won’t put up with it for long.

    Later,

    This no longer has a thing to do with what I wrote my original article about, nor does that original story have any relevance to the current discussion.

    I’m bored guys.

    But knock yerselves out. At this rate my Neil Young article may have a shot at “all time hit champ” on BC, right alongside such other classics as the perennial BC favorites about John Cena and the boy band B5.

    The intellectual level of the conversation is also dipping precariously close to the level of those threads.

    I hate to point this out to pally but I have big-ass issues with you sources. If you check the bottom of the bar graph on your first URL you’ll note that the info comes from two sources, one of which, Oil Daily, is what I would call biased, because after locating the publication’s webpage and reading the “about” section I took not of the fact that it is made solely to market and promote the use of oil. You are right an average of 30% of oil company’s profits come from the USA, but they do have record USA profits. They do make more than 9 cents per gallon, according to the US Dept. of Energy last month the average oil company profit on a gallon of gas’ refinement was 13% by my math comes to 37 cents per gallon, with last month’s nat. ave. price of $3.30 per gallon. In addition, the DOE breakdown, which shows that 39% of profits come from the transport of gas, which is $1.29, since many oil company’s like Exxon, Amaco-BP, Conoco-Phillips, and etc. also own thier own transport companies I think it’s safe to say that about $1.69 goes to your average oil company. Those figures also don’t take into account the difference between average oil companys and big oil. Big oil, like Exxon makes alot more money an oil company, such as Arbusto ever did. The ratio of big oil to oil, although impossible to figure, I’m sure you’ll agree is big enough to cause some major screw ups in the average. And if you check your Conoco-Phillips url, you’ll find their figures are misleading, figuring the average as refinement based on 2 year old figures of info, if you can trust an oil company to tell you how much an oil company makes on a gallon of gas. Furthermor, all of their figures are gas only, none of them factor deisel or jet and airplane fuels, which they also produce, and we the consumer also ultimatley pay for.
    Then there’s the people who say that the Arab’s and OPEC are fucking us intentionally, wrong…according to the U.S. Energy Info Administration in the average of the first half of 2006 8000 barrels a day come from non-OPEC nations, as apposed to 5000 from OPEC nations and the single largest source is Canada, from which we get 17% (16.9, if you’re anal) of our daily oil imports. Those figures represent imports, I couldn’t find much of anything on our domestic produvion.

    183 [What does it have to do with anything ?]

    It’s just pointing out how you lefty’s operate Murph. Neil Young’s album is a lie, Global Warming is a Hoax, The Photo’s tried to make Israel look bad from the lefts point of view.
    It’s all left wing propaganda and the dumb among us buy into it. That pisses me off to no end.
    Ya know, I am glad an Oil CEO makes a Hundred Million Dollars or 400 Million Dollars or whatever. It’s not our business. That’s what he or she is worth to the company. All this left wing Boo Hooing about what somebody makes is bullshit. I never hear the left boo hoo when Johnny Depp gets 40 million dollars for a movie. Does he really need 40 million dollars or could he get by on 20. Bet if he had to he could get by on 20. In any case, that’s the concern of the Movie Company, not ours. Barbra Streisand lives on mega acres of Prime Costal land but she’s gonna tell me where I can build my house becasue she doesn’t want me to cut down a fuckin tree ? Hypocrit Bitch. That’s what’s it’s all about Murph, propaganda. They got you brother. But truth be known, you give me the impression that you “might could” be saved. But Murph, you gotta wanna be saved.

    Mookey, I reiterate. If you aren’t buying global warming, come on up to Alaska and we can take a walk to just one of the hundreds of receding million year old glaciers that we have here. I stood on this particular one 16 years ago when I first moved to this great state. Now to stand on that same glacier you would be hiking two MILES back from the place I stood. Believe it. That is an awful lot of added Co2 being released as they melt which excaberates the warming problem. The Polar Bears are starving because the pack ice is not freezing up as it has for thousands of years, so they can’t get out to the food. Native Alaskans that have been whaling since man first learned to make a boat can’t get out either because of the lack of solid pack ice as well.
    Oh…and the Spruce Bark beetles which thrive in the warmer temps we are experiencing up here have now destroyed our Spruce Forests to the tune of an area the size of Connecticut. Didn’t have much of a Spruce Bark Beetle problem when I moved here. So, if denying the warming concerns helps ya sleep at night, you just keep believing it. This moderate sees the changes every day!

    Keep posting…i’ll keep laughing

  • Mookey

    In simple terms, CO2 is the lifeblood of the planet.

    We are told that the main culprit is the increase of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the Earth’s atmosphere. Testifying on May 13, 2003 before the US House of Representatives’ Committee on Resources, Dr. John Christy, a professor of atmospheric Science and director of the Earth System Center at the University of Alabama, said, “CO2 is not a pollutant. In simple terms, CO2 is the lifeblood of the planet. The vegetation we see around us would disappear, if not for atmospheric CO2. This green world largely evolved during a period when the atmospheric CO2 concentration was many times what it is today…in other words, carbon dioxide means life itself.

    Point taken Mook. So ya got an explanation for why my glaciers are disappearing, my forests are dying, and my pack ice is no longer where it has been for thousands of years?

  • Smurphy

    Well, as for 189, I don’t have trouble sleeping at night; but I do appreciate the explanation, although I don’t agree that it shows any misdoing on the behalf of the left or liberals in general, but rather the misdoing of a Lebanese photographer, certanly not a member of the American Left wing.
    I have nothing against cutting down trees in a tree farm, so long as it’s done right, and that’s where the majority of the U.S.’s lumber comes from, so I really don’t know what the stint about Barbra Streisand is, other than perhaps some misdeirected anger over her music, which I feel 24/7.
    I really love how Dr. Christy’s Arts master is Divinity…
    The main cause of global warming, at least as I understand it is the breakdown of the ozone layer, which of course includes CO2. Ozone breakdown raises UV radiation, heating the planet, in additoin to people’s skin. Several chemicals aside from CO2 that deplete the ozone layer are still common biproducts or widely used, such as Methane which can be found at 1.72 parts per million volume in 1990, more than a 100% increase over pre-industrial levels of .8 ppmv ( Atmospheric Greenhouse Gasses) and there’s also ather gases to like:Other Gases:Nitrous Oxide Hydrofluorocarbons, Perfluorocarbons, and Sulfur Hexafluoride, all still used.The U.S.’s failure to ratify Kyoto is downright foolhardy. Neil Young is taking charge of the issue, I rather like “Be The Rain” on Greendale, for my “environmental whcko tune” Like he said, we’ve got to fight the big machine, and save Alaska for Mr. Barkley, for you and for me, but most of all for our kids. Neil’s taken an initiative with his bio-diesel buses, and I think we’d all be better off if we were to follow his and others’ leads.
    “We got a job to do…
    We got to save Mother Earth”

    we don want:
    “Next mornin’ Sun was up at dawn…
    She looked around and Earth was gone”

    But that’s what’ll happen if we don’t open our eyes to the problem, which is, I assure you very real. You’re right, they got me, but you know what, it’s pretty cool, the grass is still greener, maybe you should come on over and give it a shot.

    An Mookey, I can’t really tell from your posts, but have you ever listened to Living With War, or any other Neil Young/NY&Crazy Horse/CSNY/Buffalo Springfeild?

  • Smurphy

    Mr. Barkley,
    Have you looked into some of the studies they’ve conducted on core samples from arctic ice?
    If so, what do you think of some of the trends that they show in atmospheric content of some of the freak particles they have, like the copper, 800-1000years ago, and iron a bit prior to then. Have you looked into the explanations of these partcicles and possible relation to temporary glacieral melting they may have caused? I read an article that was very intresting talking about it in Pop. Science.
    –Smurph

  • Martin Lav

    Yeah, so when we cut down a tree, we are doing the world a favor, because we are removing the polluted Oxygen that they spew out, so in effect the more we kill the more we live.
    Hmmm…..back on topic……isn’t this same logic that inspired Neil to write this album in the first place. You know when he saw the headline in the USA Today about how the Iraq war was good for medical advances. The spin on everything is baffling…..

  • Martin Lav

    We have known since the late seventies that “Rust Never Sleeps” because Neil Young warned us of the fact. I think Neil was warning us of one, or more, of the following (A) Punk Rockers (B) The Reagan Administration or (C) Patty Reagan and Patty Smith)

    The oil experts weren’t listening at the time though, they were busy vibrating with giddy anticipation over the coming anti- regulatory, pro business, “pillage the public treasury” policies of the arriving hordes of free market, hate government, “where’s mine,” rampant assed Republicanism.

    I think that was about the time that construction was beginning on the Alaskan Pipeline which was approximately when this sudden rust problem began … suddenly, twenty five or so years ago.

    Experts seldom listen to anyone, not even Neil Young, partially because they are too busy expounding on their area of expertise on CNN or one of the other twenty four hour “Repeat The White House Talking Points Like A Mantra” outlets, but mostly because experts wouldn’t seem very “experty” if they went around from network to network just …. listening.

    This explains why “BP”, which once was an acronym for “British Petroleum,” until their public relations people changed it to “Beyond Petroleum,” although their recent quarterly profit reports may lead the public to believe that it really means “Beyond Petroleum Jelly.”

    But, again, I digress. I started to say that the oil and energy experts were so preoccupied with the coming of the “Post-Great Society, Hallelujah, Cal Coolidge is Back, Land of Milk and Honey.” that they didn’t hear Neil’s warning.

    With the rise of the twenty four hour news channels the demand for talking experts in many fields became so great, and the pay so lucrative that there were almost no experts left to serve and guide crucial areas of our society, such as the energy industry, or the military, or elder statesmanship.

    At this point in time, or as Yogi Berra says, “now,” the problem has become so acute that we can’t fight a war effectively because all the really good Generals have become Senior Military Analysts on TV.

    The only Generals left are the sycophants that we often see around Bush or Rumsfeld these days, like Peter Pace, whose shameless ass kissing almost makes me ashamed to have been a Marine.

    The shortage of experts problem became painfully apparent a few years ago when the LA Prosecutors Office discovered it couldn’t gain a conviction in a criminal case because all the really great Lawyers (like Greta Van Susteren) were either Senior Legal Analysts on Wolf Blitzer or Bill O’Reilly’s staff or consultants on one of the several dozen CSIs or LA Laws which now crowd the cable channels.

    So it was, in the oil industry, that, while the corrosive forces of Rapid Arctic Pipeline Oxidation were working twenty four hours a day at their insidious task of suddenly destroying the pipeline infrastructure, most of the energy experts were busily engaged in explaining to TV audiences how oil markets work, diagramming the “Law of Supply and Demand” and finding other ways to cover up their aberrant greed and criminal behavior.

    Not all of them were on TV, great numbers of these well oiled cats had been employed by the Bush Administration to make sure that the energy and oil industries, with their all the attendant environmental problems of their oil fields and refineries, pipelines and supertankers, were less regulated than, say, amateur fishermen or golf pros.

    Thousands of other energy experts were hard at work in government agencies, or in the quasi private sector on the public dime, refuting Al Gore’s silly ass claims about Global Warming and many more were busily searching for important evidence concerning Noah’s Ark, The Shroud of Turin, and that ridiculous, on the face of it, heretical “Darwinian” nonsense.

    When all the experts in an industry are completely preoccupied with things like “trees” they tend to lose sight of things like “forests,” so we shouldn’t be overly harsh with them for not noticing that the Alaskan Pipeline had suddenly rusted away, causing the spillage of “four or five barrels” of oil.

    There were some warning signals,(aside from Neil Young’s somewhat irritating, nasal, whining, social portents) which might have made them sit up and notice, like the recent, (March 2006) spillage of 267,000 barrels (that’s barrels, not gallons) by the same company “BP” as in “Blowout Pipelines?” in another of its Prudhoe transit lines, which is still shutdown.

    Examination of the lines in the most recent spill found that the pipeline walls had suffered losses in wall thickness of as much as 70 to 81%

    BP said that this level of “corrosion-related wall thinning appeared to exceed BP criteria for continued operation.”

    I would think so.

    Not being an expert I might have thought that the allowable limits for loss of wall thickness would be much lower, say twenty or thirty percent, at which point red flags would be raised, alarms would ring out, and teams of experts would be summoned.

    I might also have thought that the 267,000 barrel spill in March would be much more reason to shut things down and fix them than the more recent spill of “four or five barrels.” I was wrong, another indication that I should remember my “place” and stick to “Beer.”

    The only variables that I can think of that have changed since this past March are the worsening Civil War in Iraq, the onset of proxy war we have started with Iran in Lebanon, the steady drop of Republicans in the polls, and the proximity of election day. Hmmm.

    But, as I’m, admittedly, not well versed in these technical matters I guess I’ll just have to trust the oil people and our government that is so diligently regulating the oil industry and their activities, and fervently protecting the public interest.

    When they next get together, these folks from the Bush Government and Big Oil, perhaps at their next family outing, after the potato races, and potato salad, the hob nobbing and the apple bobbing, they will attack these problems, and using all their skills, expertise, and the competence that has become a hallmark of the GW Bush Administration, they will rapidly correct them.

    Yes, I’m sure of it, they will correct these problems, with all dispatch, quickly, suddenly, in fact, at the speed of …. rust.

  • Scott Barkley

    I haven’t seen the article Smurph, but I will check it out. It is my understanding that the end of the Ice Age and subsequent receding of glacial formations that covered much of the upper portion of North America was an activity that encompassed hundreds if not thousands of years. The particular glacier that I refer to previously has melted back two miles in the last 15. Quite a difference, and that is only one of many. I am not completely sold on the idea that this is all human driven either, in one way or another. We all know that climate changes are cyclic and normal…but they don’t normally happen this quickly without cataclysmic events. I do agree that humanity can have an effect on slowing down what is happening. But it will take a worldwide effort…not just a few biofuel vehicles. Yes, I suppose every bit helps to an extent…but not enough to illicit the kind of change that will slow down what seems to be happening now.
    Thanks for the words Smurph

  • Scott Barkley

    Nice job Bob. Perhaps BP can spend a bit of the 7.3 BILLION dollars they have made over the last four months on a little maintenance huh! Your points were well taken, but that does not even address what their negligence is going to do to MY fuel bills in the coming months. As soon as I heard, I called my Fuel oil company and ordered a quick 250 gallons at the rock bottom price of 2.68 a gallon. That is 670.00 for those who are curious. That is a little over a month’s worth of fuel to heat my house to 70 degrees during winter up here. I easily anticipate the per gallon to go over 3.00 this winter…which means there will be a percentage of my community (Fairbanks) who will become popsicles in there own frozen homes. Pray we have an El Nino filled winter. Not likely, but we can hope.
    BTW…BP is facing criminal charges for the big 267000 that they dumped on our pristine arctic floor. And yeah…I got a kick out of the 4 or 5 barrel spill too…I’m totally believing that.
    Enjoyed the words….

  • Smurphy

    Mr. Barkley,
    Oh, you simply must do some looking into it. It’s all still all theoretical of course, but very intriguing. It discusses how seemingly minor human actions more likely than not causesd quick and major changes in the melting patterns as recently as 800-1200 years ago. Really illustrates how if a global shift for cleaner energy on every platform from cars to poewer plants and factories could possibly bear down on the climate changes you’ve witnessed. I beleive that global shifts, at the very least universal acceptance of Kyoto, probably much more, could slow the changes. I too am not certain if it’s nature or man that’s causing the shifts in climate, but I am rather certain that man has effected the speed, and that we can certainly do it again. Thanks for the time of day.

    Martin,
    That’s a really great article you found there, thanks for sharing it, I sent it on to half of my family. I also agree with everything you said in #196, no matter what the story is, it seems there’s always two sides to it, but in the end only one can be the truth.

    Mookey,
    I certainly have heard of Rueters, I don’t recognize them as being the American left, as they are a British company. I don’t think they have anything to do with the American Left in any way, shape, or form. And I don’t think the freelance Lebanese photographer who was giving them blatently altered fotos qualifies as the American Left wing, at least I don’t think he has a green card…And I do think that Rueters has fessed up to their error of ever buying his work, and behaved just the way they should have. Don’t worry Mookey, I once made a mistake, I voted for Chuck Grassley, but since then I’ve repented, and I plan on enduring to the end; yes sir, I’m going to stay on the straight and narrow path….I’m holding to the rod Mookey, You just make sure and do the same, we’re all sinners, but Mookey the time for repentance has come!

    #206…Mookey. Read before you speak. I clearly stated that I am NOT a liberal in a previous post! Far from it. I firmly believe that people need to stand on there own two feet, not live off of my tax dollars. Also, I lived in Florida (Miami area) between 72 and 77. So I have been there and done that. My concerns have nothing to do with the cold, moron. If you could actually read you would know that. They have everyting to do with being ripped off by oil companies. BP pulled 7.3 BILLION dollars out of us last QUARTER. That is robbery of the highest degree, and although I make plenty of money I do not relish sacrificing my disposable income padding some fat cat oil mucky mucks’ trips to the Bahamas while the lower income families in my town freeze to death in their homes because they can’t afford to heat them at 3 + dollars a gallon for fuel oil on top of 3+ dollars per gallon of gas to get to work. They also have everything to do with the fact that the climate up here is clearly and rapidly changing and it is affecting everyone who lives here adversely in one way or another.
    So Mook.. do us all a favor and go back to second grade or whatever grade you decided you knew everything and no longer needed to listen and learn, and learn to READ before you start with the smart ass remarks. You won’t look like nearly as big an idiot.

    Perhaps I misunderstood. Now, is it too hot up there or is it too cold ?

    I clearly stated that I am NOT a liberal in a previous post!

    You can state that all you want, it does not mean it’s true whether you know it or not. Your words say otherwise.

    BP pulled 7.3 BILLION dollars out of us last QUARTER.

    So what. Good. 7.3 billion ? The governments take had to be 3.5 times that as the Government gets more off gas production than the Gas Companies. They must have sold a lotta gas because they made that 7.3 Billion @ 9 cents per gallon. It’s you Liberals that won’t let them open any more ground to produce the Oil. That’s one of the reasons Gas is so high. It all comes back to you Neil Young Maggit Infested Dope Smoking FM types stopping our advancement. And don’t give me that alternate Fuel shit. There’s 500 years worth of Oil left and that’s just the shit we know about. You go to school.

    Barkly,

    I read your posts. You rant about how right you are and oppose everything I say. Yet, everything I have presented is the truth. Oh, and fuck yeah I listen to Rush Limbaugh “The most listened to Talk Radio Host in the History of Radio and the World”.

    Your Pal,

    Mookey

    Figures you wanna quit and won’t debate, you cannot beat the Mookster.

  • Smurphy

    I hate to be the one to break it to ya Mookster, but you really don’t debate. You belt out lies you’ve been told by Rush and the rest of the neo-con media movement are truth. You have to rebut what the other people say in order to debate, and you don’t do that, you decry it as false, without evidence, or say nothing of it. That is not debate, that is ranting.

    And about Rush Limbaugh, do you know what he said when Jerry Garcia died?
    He said “He was just another druggy”. I think that makes Captain Oxy a HYPOCRITE if I’ve ever heard one.

    You wanna debate…well then I have some questions for you:

    1)Where are the weapons of mass destruction that Bush said were in Iraq?

    2)What are the ties Saddam had to Osama?

    3)Why should Bush be allowed to listen in on anyone he wants to, anywhere, without a warran, and simply claim he’s looking for terorists?

    4)Why the hell isn’t Osama’s head on pike in front of the twin towers yet?

    5)Why is the national debt $8,457,935,554,590.09, and climbing?

    6)Why has Bush killed 2595 of our soldiers?

    7)Do you idolize Joe McCarthy?

    When I think about my answers, I think of a song:

    Let’s impeach the president for lying
    And leading our country into war
    Abusing all the power that we gave him
    And shipping all our money out the door

    He’s the man who hired all the criminals
    The White House shadows who hide behind closed doors
    And bend the facts to fit with their new stories
    Of why we have to send our men to war

    Let’s impeach the president for spying
    On citizens inside their own homes
    Breaking every law in the country
    By tapping our computers and telephones

    What if Al Qaeda blew up the levees
    Would New Orleans have been safer that way
    Sheltered by our government’s protection
    Or was someone just not home that day?

    Let’s impeach the president
    For hijacking our religion and using it to get elected
    Dividing our country into colors
    And still leaving black people neglected

    Thank god he’s cracking down on steroids
    Since he sold his old baseball team
    There’s lot of people looking at big trouble
    But of course the president is clean

    Thank God

    Good Night and Good Luck,

    And about Rush Limbaugh, do you know what he said when Jerry Garcia died? He said “He was just another druggy”. I think that makes Captain Oxy a HYPOCRITE if I’ve ever heard one.

    He was just another druggy and alcoholic to boot.

    It’s one thing to be a druggy for the sake of being a druggy, it’s a whole other thing to become addicted to drugs because you have a severe affliction, in Rush’s case, back pain. He didn’t use the Drugs to get high, he use them to stop pain. Rush did nothing illegal that’s obvious now. No charges, haaa fuckin’ ha. Just more trumped up fake useless charges from the drive-by media shouting a wish and a prayer. Still on top. The very top. Still the King. A living legend. So you go listen to Air America chump.

    1)Where are the weapons of mass destruction that Bush said were in Iraq?

    He had them. He actually used them up North on the Kurds. John Kerry said he had them, Bill and Hillery Clinton said he had them, Nancy Pelosi said he had them. Saddam had them moved to Syria, that’s where they are now. But that was but one reason we went in. He violated the U.N. resolutions time and time and time again. Oil for food ? Can you say kick backs for the French and Russians while Iraqi’s starved ?
    The 9/11 commision and the President/VP are on the same page as far as links between al Qaeda and Iraq. What the media jumped on was, no collaborative relationship — the NY Times overstated this by writing No Iraq-Al Qaeda Tie in its headline because that’s their template. Yes, Saddam most likely didn’t help plan 9/11. But there are links between Al Queda and Saddam’s Iraq.

    2)What are the ties Saddam had to Osama?

    OSAMA BIN LADEN and Saddam Hussein had an operational relationship from the early 1990s to 2003 that involved training in explosives and weapons of mass destruction, logistical support for terrorist attacks, al Qaeda training camps and safe haven in Iraq, and Iraqi financial support for al Qaeda–perhaps even for Mohamed Atta–according to a top secret U.S. government memorandum obtained by THE WEEKLY STANDARD.

    3)Why should Bush be allowed to listen in on anyone he wants to, anywhere, without a warran, and simply claim he’s looking for terorists?

    He does not. Computers listen for key words. It would be physically impossible to listen in on every conversation. By the way, he is looking for terrorists.

    4)Why the hell isn’t Osama’s head on pike in front of the twin towers yet?

    Like all cowards, he’s hiding in someones house among women and children. If we went and kicked in the doors, you and your ilk would cry about that just as you’d cry if we got attacked again because we didn’t listen in on terrorists.

    5)Why is the national debt $8,457,935,554,590.09, and climbing?

    How does that effect you ? In no way. It ain’t because of Bush. Bush is bringing in mega bucks to the government because he cut taxes. Whenever taxes are raised the government take GOES DOWN. That’s a fact.

    6)Why has Bush killed 2595 of our soldiers?

    This I will not dignify with comment [Edited].

    7)Do you idolize Joe McCarthy?

    Damn right. We need to weed out you commys.

  • Smurphy

    Limbaugh himself didn’t make any excuses, maybe becaus he knew people like you would do it for him or maybe not, I won’t judge him on that.

    Limbaugh was charged with one couunt of criminal doctor shopping, the charges were dropped when Rush took a deal to pay the state of Florida $30,000 and take an 18 month rehab program.(FACTUAL SOURCE)

    I don’t really care who the most listened to talk radio host is, but I looked into it anyways, what I find is that it is indeed Howard Stern, a man I hate to no end. He barely beats out Rush Limbaugh since Stern has global syndication through the Sirius Network. Rush is the most listened to talk host in America though.

    Keep it coming Mookey, keep it coming.

    RUSH LIMBAUGH, THE MOST LISTENED TO RADIO TALK SHOW HOST, EVER. EAT YOUR HEART OUT.

  • Mookey

    Rush Limbaugh is the greatest radio talk-show host ever, says the trade magazine Talkers.
    The magazine’s September issue rates the top 25 radio talk-show hosts of all time, based on “talent, longevity, success, creativity, originality and impact on both the broadcasting industry and society in general.”

    The list was openly designed “to stimulate discussion and interest in the business,” says Talkers editor Michael Harrison, “but we also think it’s pretty damn accurate.”

    The list was compiled by an in-house panel at the magazine, he says, “with extensive consultation of people in the business.”

    Among other things, the list may reinforce the image of talk radio as the land of white males, because 22 of the top 25 are males and all 25 are white.

    The list:

    1. Rush Limbaugh

    2. Howard Stern

    3. Don Imus

    4. Larry King

    5. Sally Jessy Raphael

    6. Bruce Williams

    7. Laura Schlessinger

    8. Barry Gray

    9. Barry Farber

    10. Joy Browne

    11. Michael Jackson

    12. Art Bell

    13. Ronn Owens

    14. Jerry Williams

    15. Neil Rogers

    16. Bob Grant

    17. Long John Nebel

    18. David Brudnoy

    19. Arthur Godfrey

    20. Bill Ballance

    21. Neal Boortz

    22. J.P. McCarthy

    23. Jean Shepard

    24. Gene Burns

    25. G. Gordon Liddy

    In politics, there are turning points that can define a political party for decades to come. Yesterday’s defeat of Senator Joe Lieberman in the Democrat primary in Connecticut is such a moment. Because he stood for a strong national defense and victory in Iraq, Joe Lieberman was successfully defeated. For a political party to reject a respected Senator who just six years ago was its candidate for Vice President is virtually without precedent. It speaks volumes about the new Democrat Party: if you stand for a strong defense and victory in the War on Terror, you have no place in the party and you will not have their support.

    MARCH 1947: President Harry S Truman: “[I]t must be the policy of the United States to support free peoples who are resisting attempted subjugation by armed minorities or by outside pressures.” (President Harry S Truman, Address To Joint Session Of Congress, Washington, D.C., 3/12/47)

    JULY 1952: Gov. Adlai Stevenson (D-IL): “The ordeal of the twentieth century, the bloodiest, most turbulent era of the whole Christian age, is far from over. Sacrifice, patience, understanding, and implacable purpose may be our lot of years to come. Let’s face it. Let’s talk sense to the American people. Let’s tell them the truth, that there are no gains without pains, that there – that we are now on the eve of great decisions, not easy decisions, like resistance when you’re attacked, but a long, patient, costly struggle which alone can assure triumph over the great enemies of man – war, poverty, and tyranny – and the assaults upon human dignity which are the most grievous consequences of each.” (Gov. Adlai Stevenson, Acceptance Speech At Democrat National Convention, Chicago, IL, 7/26/52)

    JANUARY 1961: President John F. Kennedy: “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty. This much we pledge – and more.” (President John F. Kennedy, Inaugural Address, Washington, D.C., 1/20/61)

    JANUARY 1961: President John F. Kennedy: “In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility – I welcome it.” (President John F. Kennedy, Inaugural Address, Washington, D.C., 1/20/61)
    AUGUST 1968: Vice President Hubert Humphrey: “Across America – throughout the entire world – the forces of emancipation are at work. We hear freedom’s rising chorus: ‘Let me live my own life. Let me live in peace. Let me be free,’ say the people … And to speed this day, we must go far beyond where we’ve been, beyond containment to communication, beyond differences to dialogue, beyond fear to hope.” (Vice President Hubert Humphrey, Acceptance Speech At Democrat National Convention, Chicago, IL, 8/29/68)

    1)Where are the weapons of mass destruction that Bush said were in Iraq?

    Bush administration officials have even conceded no evidence of any WMD’s in Iraq, either before or avter the invasion.(SOURCE)

    2)What are the ties Saddam had to Osama?

    There was never any credible evidence of a connectioin found. (SOURCE)

    3)Why should Bush be allowed to listen in on anyone he wants to, anywhere, without a warran, and simply claim he’s looking for terorists?

    Wiretapping without a court order is a FELONY under FISA. I know how the system works, I still find it deplorable. I’m not so damned shaking in my shoes over terrorists that I’ll give up my any of my liberties without a fight, if I was, they’d be winning.

    4)Why the hell isn’t Osama’s head on pike in front of the twin towers yet?

    The Bush regime is too busy taking out the wrong target, the hunt for bin laden seems all but forgotten.

    5)Why is the national debt $8,457,935,554,590.09, and climbing?

    This dosn’t effect me my ass. The power of the USD is undermined by every penny that is added to the national debt, why do you think they Euro is up so much? it’s becaus the EU is a major benifactor of the interest of that damn debt. Visit federalbudget.com, live and learn.

    6)Why has Bush killed 2595 of our soldiers?

    I’m an idiot hu? I don’t blame you for dogging the question, since there is no apparent answer. But I do hold resolve, we entered Iraq under false pretenses, I didn’t buy the reasons then, and I don’t buy them now. The best answer I have is that bush is a “Master of War”(that’s a referece to a Bob Dylan song, Mookey) . .(BUSH MURDERED THOSE PEOPLE JUST AS SURELY AS IF HE HAD SHOT EACH OF THEM)

    7)Do you idolize Joe McCarthy?

    Now I originally asked that as a joke, so I hope you too were joking. McCarthy was a psycho, he took advantage of the people’s fear to get himself power, then he used it to keep everyone in check, he was the best weapon the Kremlin had against us. Eisenhower hated the man, Edward R. Murrow hated the man,even Herbert Biberman hated the crazy son of a bitch.

    Now I’ll post this, thoough if the trend continues itself, I’ll find 100 more posts fo reply too….

    Furthermore, I’ve been in favor of basically every cut in the defense budget since about oh, say Christmas Day 1991. I think it’s dandy that the nation’s military budget would be smaller, they can get by on less than 15% of all the nation’s money…WHAT’S YOUR POINT?

    Mookey, all those quotes from Kennedy to Humphrey and Truman are only bullshit words and speeches that any and all politicians make. They don’t mean a Goddamn thing A-hole. It’s all bullshit to glorify and label an agenda a NOBLE MISSION. Most of the wars we’ve fought, the tactics we’ve used in the name of GOOD VERSUS EVIL has been nothing more than senseless slaughter of innocent lives all rationalized by the mere fact that we are supposedly a FREE nation that promotes human rights and liberty for all. BULLSHIT.

    Glen, of all of Neil’s works, I’m still in love with 1978’s “Comes a Time” album. Just to sit and listen to “Goin’ back” is a pleasure.

  • http://absent-mind.blogspot.com/ Jet in Columbus

    The intricate folk guitars, Crystal singing int he backround before she became famous herself. It brings a peace almost to tears when I listen to it…

    The song is decades old and still describes Israel today

    Neil Young – Goin’ Back…

    In a foreign land
    There were creatures at play
    Running hand in hand
    Leading nowhere to stay

    Driven to the mountains high
    They were sunken in the cities deep
    Livin’ in my sleep.

    I feel like goin’ back
    Back where there’s nowhere to stay
    When fire fills the sky
    I’ll still remember that day

    These rocks I’m climbin’ down
    Have already left the ground
    Careening through space.

    I used to build these buildings
    I used to walk next to you
    Their shadows tore us apart
    And now we do what we do

    Driven to the mountains high
    Sunken in the cities deep
    Livin’ in our sleep.

    I feel like goin’ back
    Back where
    there’s nowhere to stay.

    Come to think of it Neil’s 1972 “Harvest” was a good album too

  • Martin Lav

    Love that album too Jet.

    This one’s for you Rubbermonkey:

    LOTTA LOVE
    It’s gonna take a lotta love
    To change the way things are.
    It’s gonna take a lotta love
    Or we won’t get too far.

    So if you look in my direction
    And we don’t see eye to eye,
    My heart needs protection
    And so do I.

    It’s gonna take a lotta love
    To get us thru the night.
    It’s gonna take a lotta love
    To make things work out right.

    So if you are out there waitin’
    I hope you show up soon,
    ‘Cause my heart needs relatin’
    Not solitude.

    Gotta lotta love
    Gotta lotta love.

    It’s gonna take a lotta love
    To change the way things are.
    It’s gonna take a lotta love
    Or we won’t get too far.

    It’s gonna take a lotta love

    She later hit the top ten with her own version of it. In the original she sang backround, so I wasn’t pissed.

    I get pissed when someone steals someone else’s music, but in this case she participated in the original.

    she did a damned good job too, though I liked Young’s version better.

  • Smurphy

    I was so relieved when I saw there were only 7 new posts up!

    Harvest is one my favorite albums. I love “old Man” “The Needle and the Damage Done” “heart of gold” and “Out on The Weekend” all of those good old songs.
    That “Goin’ Back…”, it really is timeless.

    Barkley,
    Thanks to you too for all of your words.

    I imagine I’ll wake up to a multiple of messages from the guy who has nothing better to do and posts to himself, but I know he loves Neil Young and he thought Neil was a right winger like he was and he is depressed as all hell that Neil just does what’s right and wings it the rest of the time.

You little commy sons of bitches just can’t wait for Osama to come waltzing down Main Street USA so you can worship him can you ? Oh and hey, with the Caribu heard @ 900 times it’s original size a bunch of us pals should get together and go up to Alaska and do a little hunting. I’m sure Scotty Barkly will put us up even though his place may be a little Chilly. Anyway, with the trees dying off due to Global Warming up there, we could keep the place Toasty with dead trees aka “Fire Wood” in the Fire place. Hope you got one Scotty.

    I think my favorite album is Landing on water. I love “The Violent Side” that’s an awsome tune. Touch the night is good too but it’s a re-write of Hey Hey My My which is a re-write of Like a Hurricane which evolved into “Throw your hatred down” and evolved into “Shock and awe”, hew, say that 3x fast. “Hard luck stories” and “pressure” rock along with “weight of the world” and “People on the street”. I have no idea why this album did so poorly, I love it, seriously.

    The new one is good Jet. I wouldn’t call it his best, and you dfeinitely have to be a fan of the “big noise” he makes with ol’ Black (which I am…though I also like the quiet stuff, especially “Harvest Moon” which is just a beautiful record).

    Hey Jet, on an unrelated note, have you been watching Glenn Beck? I haven’t read this piece you just out up yet (will do so before bed tonite), but the headline grabbed my attention because Glenn Beck said something about Aug. 22 on his show tonite.

    I’m gonna go read your piece now actually…

    Check out LWW though Jet. Its a nice, loud, little rock and roll protest record.

    Wowzers, More new posts, good mostly though… I start to worry every time come back to town from a trip.
    I’ve been listening to NY: Unplugged alot here for the past couple of days, and I really can’t get over how good “helpless” “like a hurricane” “long may you run” and “From Hank to Hendrix” sound on there. The organ is one of my favorite instuments, and I think Neil’s pretty good with it, like on alot of Mirror Ball, and in Bringing Down Dinner on Greendale.
    I don’t know if I could narrow a favorite record, but I think Mirror Ball, Harvest, and Ragged Glory would be in the running for me.

    No its not a love fest bewteen the Jetman and the Glenman. Although I agree with my friend in Columbus that you may want to take a look at those fantasies of yours…LOL

    Seriously though, I will respond to anybody who wants to discuss the content of my original article.

    But I will no longer respond to trolls who simply love to read their own name (or names) in print and have nothing better to do with their time than put up hundreds of posts that really have nothing to say, and seem to be intended simply to bait people they disagree with.

    I’ve tried playing nice with these people (or person?) I refer to here. And I don’t mean you Marv but I think you know who I do mean.

    Anyway, it obviously did not work.

    Nope. Been there. Done that. And quite frankly I have better things to do with my time, unlike some.

    So as long as someone wants to talk about what my original article was about, and do so in a courteous, intellectual fashion I will respond to anyone who leaves a comment.

    I will no longer to respond to Trolls or Monkeys (Rubber or otherwise) in any fashion whatsoever though. I made my mistake once. I won’t make it again.

    Look forward to discussing Neil or related matters with you Marv, Jet, Smurph, Scott, or anyone else who cares to do so though. But it’s a no-tolerance policy from this writer towards trolls and monkeys from here on out. Period.

    And again to Jet…all kidding about love fests and trhe like aside…thanks again for your invaluable help at reeling this thing again (at least a little bit).

    Anytime I can return the favor, just ask.

    Neil Young wants to wave a White Flag and let Osama move in next door to me while he lives up there in Mega Wealthy Hippy Land all safe and sound and shit. I think that’s Fucked Up. How many Katrina people now live on Neils 1000’s of acres of land ? Zero. Bet that homie, same amount of Katrina people now living @ Barbra’s place.

    I got a twisted laugh out of #270.
    I promptly practiced self-fladgilation.

    and about #257, I’m game, we can even take my van if you pay for gas, costs $65 to fill it up…

    anywho,I’m wondering what y’all think of someting.
    I was talking to my dear old dad on the phone today, and we talked a bit about LWW. My dad raised a good point about Let’s Impeach the President that I haven’t thought of before; he said that it reminded him almost of a sing-a-long, or gingle, almost a hymm, that can be used by protestors. I listened to it, and I think he may be onto something; thinking about the backing choir and the relatively simple music, it makes more and more sense to me. I don’t know if that’s been done or not, but it seems like a good idea. Then again it could be just another crazy murphy family nut story or what.
    Any ways,
    I’m gunna go out of town for another day and half, so if y’all surprise me, make it good.

    Isn’t it amazing that Cynthia McKinney made it this long in politics ? An absolute, total Communist American hating Racist ditz. Mainstream blacks in Georgia finally were embarrassed to be represented by Cynthia McKinney. She has mega issues, she beats up the Capitol Hill police with cell phones and gets away with it because she’s Black. Is this equal rights or extra rights ? Why won’t Mrs. Clinton renounce her vote for the war ? Why won’t she join John Kerry’s resolution which drew about (9) votes BTW to get the hell out of Iraq right now ? My theory is that she knows it’s a loser in a presidential campaign — this is not a cut-and-run country. Blue state Neil Young / Lamont type liberals don’t have the will to wipe evil off the face of the earth because they think we’re the evil. They blame us and Israel for everything while doing anything they can to “understand” why terrorists hate us and do the things they do. Why the hell do Jews in this country vote for Liberals ? It’s the Republicans that support Israel. Liberals hate Jews and Israel. Go fuckin’ figure. God Bless Israel.

  • Martin Lav

    Smurph,
    I believe the song was intended as a sing-along, however, with the way the fragmented way music is delivered today I don’t think this got the airplay or momentum or attention to evolve that way. When I was at the CSN&Y concert they didn’t really create an interaction with the crowd and it didn’t happen even though they posted the words behind the stage and on the screens. I think it is a perfect song for that, but most people I think were indifferent about the protest part of this show. I’d say 50/50.
    Most people have partially bought into the KoolAid that the RubberMonkey has drunk and therefore they just stop short of calling for the impeachment of the lying bastard that “leads” this country.
    Confusing times on what’s right what’s wrong, but I think Neil Young just got fed up and said this War is wrong and Fuck You for constantly trying to make it sound right.
    That’s my opinion anyway.

  • Mookey

    What would Neil Young know about War ? He does not even have a High School diploma. Nor has he served in the armed forces. He was born with Chicken fat up his ass and a Silver Spoon in his mouth. Mother on T.V. Father a famous Writter. He’s a Pot and Coke head druggie. Because he’s a Musician with a soap box, that makes him right ? WAR 101-To stop War, you must over come your enemy, then PEACE ! It’s very simple. Take Israel and Hezbollah, you think that shit is over ? Nope ! It would be if Israel killed every last one of those filthy rag head Son of Bitches, but right now, all the enemy is gonna do is re-stock and start the shit again in a week or two. Then Israel will go in again and loose another 150 or 200 Troops because the U.N. demands (LOL) that they be careful when there blowin’ shit up. Of course, they never have a resolution telling Hezbollah to be careful. Oh-NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, Hezbollah are just freedom fighters, right ? Fuck all you fuckin Liberals.

    A hundred voices from a hundred lands
    Need someone to listen
    People are dying here and there
    They don’t see the world the way you do

    A hundred voices from a hundred lands
    Cry out in unison

    Don’t need no terror squad
    Don’t want no damned Jihad

    I have heard lennon’s give peace a chance, I love the tune, too bad more people haven’t heard it yet.
    I have the same feeling about the song, but I think there’s a chance that it could be used, probably not on any grand scale, and probably not too often, but I think I figure it’s got a decent chance.

    See, that’s the thing. What lies ? Don’t give me those Liberal Talking points put forth by a Known communist sympathizer “John Kerry” and his Ilk with all those fake wounds and a Dis-Honorable Discharge, upgraded by Carter in like 79 or 80. A dishonorable Discharge. It doesn’t matter where you went or what you did good once you have a Dis-honorable Discharge. His lies are just classic like “Nixon sent me to Viet-Nam”. The president has no fuckin’ clue about who a pee on Lieutenant is, yet Kerry tried to make it sound like Nixon went to his room one night and said I need YOU in the Nam John Kerry, without you, we’ll lose. What a steaming crock of freshly shat shit. Kerry voted for this War and now he’s playing dumb, (not a far stretch for him mind you) about the vote. That’s because he wanted credit in the event we went in there and scored an overwelming victory in a week or two. President Bush (43) said the War would out last his time in office ! What part of that did you Libs not understand ? Kerry played like he was so smart during the Campaign but his grades were worst than Bush’s, in fact, quite worse. What a fuckin’ joke you Libs are. The one thing he did good though was throwing his Medals away in protest, they were fake anyway and he had no right to them. Hey Neil, you Republican yet ? It’s time, you been a Lib for two albums now. Change gears brother, you know you want to.

  • Martin Lav

    Yeah Smurph….that song sounds good right about now too!
    I think the only criticism I could give Neil on this album is that he’s too angry. I think a more melancholy tune that had a lot more going on in the lyrics would have been better recieved, but who am I too question his muse?
    Anyway, I think he was pissed at the gall of this administration trying to always put a positive spin on shit…..(well it’s brown, it’s natural, one of a kind smell, comes from the body…..) that he just got torked and went for the jugular. Anyway that’s my take….
    I do love the last line on Restless Consumer, I didn’t know the lyric the first few times….but
    And pace!

    Love that….

    WAR!
    On Neil Young!

    Neil Young has written a new CD full of Bush
    bashing venom called “Living WIth War.” First
    “Southern Man”, now “Impeach the
    President”… This is girl-voiced aggression
    against everything Jackie and Dunlap stand
    for. It will not, it cannot stand.

    Jackie and Dunlap have declared War! On Neil
    Young! What can you do to help with the war
    effort? Buy every Neil Young CD you can find,
    just load up on ‘em, even Arc, and send them
    to:

    Red State Update
    PO Box 12181
    Murfreesboro, TN 37129

    When they get a mailbox full, Jackie and
    Dunlap will burn ‘em up, tape it, and put it on
    the internet for you to enjoy.

    Remember: We don’t want no baby fire!

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Martin and Smurph,

    Personally I think the moment for “Lets impeach The President” to become any kind of lasting anthem has probably passed.

    I mean sure, the song is catchy enough (as are any number of songs on the album including “Restless Consumer.)”

    But in order for the song to catch on in the same way “Give Peace A Chance” did for example, you need a couple of ingredients to be present.

    One, you would have needed the song to catch on immediately and when it would have had it’s best chance to, which would’ve been about the time it first came out when it was still making all the headlinnes and getting all the press.

    Two, you would need to have some sort of well-organized effort to get Bush out of office that had some teeth to it…the same way the Republicans did when they went after Clinton for his blowjob. Now short of Bush getting a hummer himself, I just don’t see that kind of organized effort happening…

    The majority of the country is dissatisfied with Bush…there are even those in his own party saying so. But nobody seems to want to organize enough to do something about it.

    I will give the Republicans credit for one thing…when they want something done, it gets done. The Democrats are usually too busy bickering amongst themselves, to make a difference.

    And until they get their shit together in that respect, there aint gonna be any anti-Bush songs catching on as anthems the same way the protest music of the sixties did. Not without a clear galvanizing cause, and a well enough organized effort to put any “anthem” in front of anyway.

    That having been said, It is a step in the right direction that at least some artists are writing protest music and expressing their consciences again.

    Aint America Great?

    Glen & Martin,
    I pretty much agree, the time has passed for any probable usage of “Let’s Impeach…” I also concur on the disorganization of the dems. I think it’s terrible that the right can simply throw themselves into someting, with seemingly no effort, yet the left has so much difficulty getting momentum.
    I do feel that there is chance it could happen, and I would be for it, however improbable.
    Something else I’ve been thinking about has to do with the popularity of Living With War.LWW did pretty darned poorly on the charts, that much is pretty certain, but it’s been rather popular. I think there are alot of people out ther who recorded the audio stream off of Neil’s site, something that I did so I could listen to it more before I baught the album. I figure there had to be some people who did the same, but never baught a copy. Also, there are most deffinatly people out there with burned “bootleg” coppies of LWW, like with any modernc CD release. But what this all boils down to is that, while performing meegerly at best in the charts, LWW is is probably much more popular than it seems. Of course, the paradox here is why didn’t the people buy the CD when they heard how good it is? All I can think to say is that there are some who are simply cheap and a few who were satisfied with their under the counter copies, there are surely other reasons. Given that the album’s reveiws have been almost 50:50 as far as I can tell, and with all of the media, I’m pretty surprised it sold so poorly.

    Mookey,
    Did you write 280 yourself, or did you get it somewhere?–I do get a kick out of such things at times, and if it is your original work, I must applaud your parody skills.

    Selective,
    I’m afraid I found your posts a bit too broad, if you could specify precisely what you’re refering to, that would be swell. I’m assuming you’re talking to our chum Mookey, in his bizaar and sadistically funny post 280, but I sadly can’t tell.

    Thanks all,
    Murph

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Thanx for the comment Murph. Nothing to add there really. LWW did not do well at all saleswise and the free downloads may have hurt. I downloaded it to review before the CD came out and as you know I put the stream up here on Blogcritics…still works as far as I know too. I have long since bought the CD of course.

    But I have another take on that…while I agree with everything you said, I also think in the case of this album Neil simply wanted it to get it in the hands of as many people as possible. Thats how strongly he felt about it. So he offered it up for free knowing that sales probably would, and ultimately did suffer. I think he knew it all along.

    Neil’s got all the money he will ever need I’m sure. And he made a buttload with CSNY on the road this summer I’m equally sure.

    So thats my take. Maybe LWW was Neil’s way of making a public service announcement.

    -Glen

  • Martin Lav

    I read an article yesterday that summed it up pretty well (too bad I can’t find it now) and it basically said that artists today even the rappers that are so-called anti-establishment aren’t able to get their music out there if they don’t have most of their albums filled with either violence or booty. There are numerous examples of references to Bush or the administration, but most of the songs are buried in an album that’s talking about sex. In this very fragmented industry today, you either conform or dissappear. No one seems to know what comes first, good music sells to feed the machine or the machine feeds good music to sell.

    By the way our Monkey friend poster is so dumb that he thinks the Jackie and Dunlap guys aren’t poking fun of their own irony. I mean those guys are really giving Neil the wink by trying to boost his record sales by having people buy the CD and mail it into them so they can burn the pile. I wonder how many our friendly posters have bought and shipped? Obviously they listened quite intently first, so they’d know the words in order to parody. Monkey, did you buy 2 and keep one for yerself? We won’t tell…..

    From Neils Garage:
    Some interpreted the song as a war cry. Some saw it for what it was: an attempt to chronicle the story of Flight 93 from the perspective of a passenger talking to his wife on a cell phone, and then moving down the aisle to stop the terrorists from accomplishing their goal.

    Feel the Spin ? Oh no, Neil wasn’t for the War, it was the guy on the Plane that was for the War.
    BULLSHIT/BULLSHIT !

  • Martin Lav

    Apparently you can’t read…..

    “Some interpreted the song as a war cry. Some saw it for what it was: an attempt to chronicle the story of Flight 93 from the perspective of a passenger talking to his wife on a cell phone, and then moving down the aisle to stop the terrorists from accomplishing their goal.”

    Read it, don’t just copy and paste….MORON!

    Taking out a terrorist on a hi-jacked plane is one thing, dumb fuck, but taking on a whole country, with a very LIMITED or weak connection to them is entirely another.

    But you believe what you want to be believe and go on being depressed that your beloved Neil was not who you thought he was after all. Send all you CD’s to me and I’ll burn them for you. I don’t want you to get depressed everytime you walk by them.

    I can imagine the torment going on in your head daily, while Rush is pumped into your pee brain and the Thrasher is going round Sugar Mountain, but You Won’t Be Denied, and you are nothing, but a Prisoner of Rock and Roll, while you think about your Old Ways and the Friend you never see, who hides his head inside your dream and you feel so Helpless.

  • Smurphy

    I do agree with what you said about Neil wanting to get the music to the people as fast as he could, especially being as he’s in no stiff for cash, and he’s probably even recovered all the costs of making the cd by now.

    Oh, and Mookey,you need to diversify your “liberal” news sources a little bit. Look what they have on Isreal/Lebanon/Palestine over at the only independant Arab news organization. And in your ode to liberal movies you forgot Fahrenheit 9/11- Amazon.com Sales Rank: #1,442 in DVD, not too bad, Oh, or V for Vendetta, a liberal movie if I ever saw one at #8 in DVD on Amazon….

    And on Neil Young, there’s

    The Am G F Song

    by Mookey (That’s Me)

    Ode to’

    Like A Hurricane
    My My Hey Hey
    Hey Hey My My
    Touch the Night
    Prisoners of Rock and Roll
    Throw your Hatred down
    All along the Watchtower
    Shock and Awe

    Oh Where would we be, without those three
    Those Magic cords that set you free
    They take you up and they bring you back
    methodically pounded out on ol’ Black
    Big Red Fuzz Pedal @ the middle of the Stage
    those three ol’ cords just cut with rage

    On the Staaaaaaaage
    All I waana hear is that basic sound
    Cut with Raaaaaaage
    Like a real loud yowl from a basset Hound
    On the Staaaaaaaage
    Cut with Raaaaaaage

    [ISANE JAM ON OL’ BLACK RIGHT HERE]

    Frank repeats Am G F over and over [Pardon the Pun] While Neil goes nuts.

    Billy plays the three Bass notes he knows and Ralph hits his Snare. Awsome !

  • Smurphy

    Who do y’all like Neil Better with?
    Crazy Horse, Perl Jam, CSN&Y other performers…?
    I loved Mirror Ball, but I think my favorite is Crazy Horse, by far. I also loved Buffalo Springfeild.

    We’re over 300…

    nice parodies Mookey, you should try selling them instead of giving them out online…who knows how many people have already dibbed your copyrights.

    Jet,
    I think my favorite on PW is “No Wonder” I really like the music and lyrics in it, I also like “The Painter” and I have a thing for “When God Made Me”. I also really dig “Falling Off the Face of the Earth” what did you think of album overall? I liked it, but I don’t think I like it nearly as well as I do most of Neil’s other albums…

    Murph out.

    And on Neil Young, there’s
    Neil Young – Heart of Gold -Amazon.com Sales Rank: #112 in DVD

    Neil and the Horse. Powderfinger.

    Hey, I always wondered why Neil could not recapture the Like a Hurricane sound from the studio. Like on LIVE-RUST it’s great but it’s nothing like the American Stars n Bars version.
    I have some Boot Legs that show he’s attempting it but still does not come close.

    Your Pal,

    Mookey

  • Smurphy

    I’ve noticed that alot of the evoloved Like a Hurricanes tend to have a different sound too. I think the only time I’ve heard it coppied was in a video from the 70’s that’s on the video “The Year of The Horse” He came pretty darn close to exactly performing the studio version on it.

  • Mookey

    That entire video can be viewed on You Tube along with a lot of other rare shit. Good Stuff.

    I think “Falling Off The Face Of The Earth” is just a gorgeous song. Love “When God Made Me” too.

    By the way, I’m totally pro Isreal, which I’m sure may surprise some of you here.

    They are surrounded by enemies whose sworn goal dating back thousands of years to the biblical conflicts, is to wipe them off the earth or as the biblical prophecies put it, “so that they might know the name Isreal no more.”

    Those same enemies seek to have God’s land for themselves.

    If those prophecies play out as written, Isreal’s enemies are also in for quite a surprise I think.

    What can I say, speaking of surprises…other than that I am full of them. And I am not nearly the stereotypical “liberal” some here may believe.

  • Martin Lav

    (Prairie Wind) has no Bush bashing, a little GOD and very little Liberal BULLSHIT.

    Spookie……although your LOVER Bush is not mentioned by name….I wonder if ole Neil had him in mind when he wrote this song:
    WHEN GOD MADE ME

    Was he thinkin’ about my country
    Or the color of my skin?
    Was he thinkin’ ’bout my religion
    And the way I worshipped him?
    Did he create just me in his image
    Or every living thing?

    When God made me
    When God made me

    Was he planning only for believers
    Or for those who just have faith?
    Did he envision all the wars
    That were fought in his name?
    Did he say there was only one way
    To be close to him?

    When God made me
    When God made me

    Did he give me the gift of love
    To say who I could choose?

    When God made me
    When God made me

    When God made me
    When God made me

    Did he give me the gift of voice
    So some could silence me?
    Did he give me the gift of vision
    Not knowing what I might see?
    Did he give me the gift of compassion
    To help my fellow man?

    When God made me
    When God made me

    When God made me
    When God made me

  • Martin Lav

    Smurph,
    It’s pretty hard to corner Neil in a box with one set of musicians or band mates. I’ve seen him many times live and he seems to groove with about all of them equally well. I’ve also seen him solo numerous times acoustically and I love that as well. However, I guess if I had too choose, I’d say he rocks hardest with the Horse and I love that smell they make.

  • Mookey

    Mart, # 309

    He most likely did but it’s not near as bad as Greendale or War. Neil thinks Barrack Obama is the savior tho’. Barrack is polished and speaks well as if he is above the fray but if you really listen, there’s nothing to what he says anyway. He’s just another democrat. Point being, Neil is “clue-less” when it comes to Politics. I’ll admit Neils Heart is in the right place however the means to the end which he seeks is on the road going the other way. What kills me is that it’s so obvious.

    Your Pal,

    Mookey

    P.S. Look at Neil Garage right in the middle of the LLW page. There’s a cartoon showing Oil men killing Caribu. Well, I just showed you guys proof that the heards have grown by 900 %. The Oil guys are actually helping the heards. The propaganda shows Oil Men killing them. We know that’s not true so what’s the real agenda ? It is the Liberal hatred of Capitalism and the United States of America. Caribu and Trees are just their excuse. It’s true, I have no reason to lie.

  • Martin Lav

    Moo,
    The 900% increase, assuming it’s true, is due to global warming creating more grass. Unless the caribou are eating oil ??? Anywho….not against capitalism, just against continuing the same ol’ story of oil-thirst and consumerism. There are alternatives that the oil companies and car companies are not incented to pursue. Corn=biodiesal. Solar, wind power…..battery technology etc…..lot’s of other options that don’t continue our same path and allows us to reduce green house emmissions too!

  • Mookey

    Marty,

    There’s one of those Corn mill thingys about 2 Blocks from my house and it fuckin’ stinks up the whole fuckin’ Neighborhood and does nothing for the price of fuel. You know when we’ll have an alternate Fuel ? When we need it. Right now there’s 500 years of Oil left and that’s just the shit we know about. Nothing man can do can alter the Temp. It’s Bullshit.

    Don’t forget Geo-Thermal power, it shows alot of promise.

    I drive a Flex-Fuel Ford Ranger, I burn E-85 in it at 38 miles to the gallon and $.94, My wife’s Dodge Caravan, our primary vehicle, has a smaller V-6 that gets 22 MPG, at $3.25 a gallon for cleaner burning 85:15 Gas:Ethanol. I love living in Iowa. We need to do more of this, follow the example of Neil’s Busses, with bio-diesel and such, if not for the betterment of the environment, then at least to curve prices and reduce our dependance on oil, which rather sooner or later, will run out.

    I agree too that Neil is gold no matter who he’s with.

    About LWW’s Let’s Impeach the President,
    There are new fairly organized efforts to try and make Sept. 1 “impeachment day” I’ve contacted my Rep, and Senators, and informed them that I support any and all such efforts, on the grounds of Lieing about iraq, as well as domestic spying which was just ruled illegal in federal court. I also wrote a number of newspapers and ran a few adds for Impeachment day. I saw on the news this evening that Bush is still running his domestic spying program, whilst he appeals the court’s call that it’s illegal, and I wonder: If I was growing 100 Marajuana plants in backyard while I was waiting on an appeal to their illegality, what are the chances that I’d be sent straight to jail? I really love Neil’s new albumm, I love this reveiw of if, and I find it all to be perfect truth, and nothing short of exactly how I feel. Right on Neil!

    Democrats like to talk tough, but when it comes to fighting the War on Terror, the record speaks for itself. Republicans passed and have consistently supported the Patriot Act to disrupt terrorist plots. Senate Democrat leader Harry Reid bragged about “killing” the Patriot Act. Republicans strengthened and reformed America’s intelligence agencies. Democrats want to surrender the tools needed to track and monitor suspected terrorists. Republicans have increased homeland security funding by 300% over the Clinton Administration, and increased funding for border control and border security by 66% over the Clinton Administration.
    And finally, Republicans are committed to confirming fair-minded judges who won’t re-write the Constitution. Democrat-appointed judges are the driving force behind decisions that would weaken efforts to track down terrorists. The Diggs Taylor judge is a great example of what is to come should Democrats ever regain control of the House or Senate or God forbid, The White House. Neil ?

    Look you Neil Young Liberals, (A little something about you)

    When it comes to a liberal’s core value, it is liberalism – and it is dangerous. It has to be observed and known at all times who these people are and what they will do if given the chance. They will sell everybody but themselves down the river, (Barbra/ Neil) and they’ll think they are doing God’s work at the same time. No Katrina Blacks living on their land, that’s for sure. The poor people of Houston have to suck it up. Not Neil or Barbra, the people of Houston. Murder rates up hundreds of percents along with Robbery and Welfare. Do Neil and Barbra give a shit ? Hell fuckin’ no. Have you seen the Crime rates statistics in Houston since Katrina ? Give em a look see. 2 Billion in fraud and counting. Neil sang a couple of songs then pulled the Roger and out. Now, what is the # 1 objective of the terrorists ? If you’re unwilling to be honest about this, it’s time to wake up, slap yourself around a little bit, and get with the program. The terrorists seek the death of all who disagree with their religious ideology. How do you negotiate with people whose objective it is to kill you no matter how much you give ? Their pathway to so-called paradise is our destruction, is that not so ? How do you negotiate with these types ? You can’t. I believed everybody when they said that we were in this War on terror – when they said we weren’t going to allow these nations to go nuclear. That’s one of the reasons I am so frustrated since the ceasefire between the Israelis and the Hezbos. Today’s libs are worse than Neville Chamberlain because Neville Chamberlain eventually realized his mistake, apologized for it, and got on board with the right side. These guys on the left continue to veer further and further left without admitting any mistake. Neville started wrong and got right, The kerry’s of this Country started right, though it was for their own selfish reasons, and are going wrong because they think it will bring them political gain, they’re wrong, but that’s what they think. No matter what the president or Condoleezza Rice say, the Iranians and their lunatic president – Mahmoud Ahmadinejad – will sit there unsure about what Bush will do. One thing that they are desperately afraid of, is the Bush administration, you can thank God for that.

    Your Best Pal,

    Howard Dean was opposed to the war and ran on that platform, so as far as I’m concerned and maybe as far as Neil’s concerned, he is a man of principle and deserves our attention. I dunno, but your George Boy Wonder is flip flopping like crazy right now and after this is all done (the War) no one, not even a lunatic like you Moo, will be able to say that this war was a good decision. Your George Boy Wonder is virtually saying that now.

    Did anybody else catch Neil Young on The Colbert Report last week? The video is on You Tube.

    Mookey,
    I heard you’ve been trashing me on this site, so I thought I’d drop by and see what’s up. First of all you don’t know me or my political positions at all. I only put out this album because I think this war is wrong and that the people were misled into sanctioning it. If you believe this is a war against Islam then maybe the actions of the President would indicate that and the responses by Hamas, Hizbullah, Shiites and Sunni’s all would agree.
    You are no fan or friend of mine and I would kindly ask you to burn all my albums or CD’s that you have in your possession. Please never utter my name again and do not continue to worship me as your hero turned goat. I have nothing to do with anything, but myself. I am a loner. If you don’t want to listen, then don’t.
    Thank you.

    Hey Neil,

    If thats really you (which I doubt it is, but what the hell)…any chance you’d still be interested in doing the interview we were supposed to do back when you were promoting the Heart Of Gold movie?

    Love the record by the way (see my review before the barrage of comments).

    Thanx!

    Your REAL pal (and continuing fan),

    -Glen

  • Mookey

    Neil,

    I don’t know you ??????????? Are you fuckin nuts ?? It’s your Political views that are way off base, not your music, which is the best. I don’t nor have I ever worshiped you, lets not get carried away. Yeah, I have every album and I’m the guy who bought the Shocking Pinks album and drove out to Brenden Burn arena to see you make an ass of yourself but that’s another story. The Bus that said show us your tits in the parking lot with the cardboard driver was a great highlight of the night. Anyway, I’ll burn the records if you want me to but I’ll need my money back with all record costs adjusted to 2006 prices and I’ll take back my concert fees as well (X5) I figure a grand five will cover it including boot-legs and such. By the way, read what I have posted here, there’s quite a bit I know, but that’s because you pissed me off you skinny little fruit loop, nuggies. You can’t see the boxes on T.V. [tell the people, be honest, as to why] Clinton put that law in effect, you’re trying to make it sound like Bush did it. You support John Kerry, A PROVEN TRAITOR but you don’t sing for politicians huh ? You’re proud to be a union man but you tour with Machines [minus] a band. Because of the Oil companies, the Caribu Heards have grown by 900 % up in Alaska but you bash the Oil Companies as if they are destroying something. They want to drill on the Northern tip of Alaska where no one could possibly live on something like 1 / 100,000 of 1 percent of the land and Sun Green moves to Alaska. Hottest it’s been in a Thousand years ? Global Warming ? What S.U.V.’s were they driving 1000 years ago Neil that warmed up the place then ? Hummmm ? 44,000 people die in Cars every year Neil Young here in the U.S. [Maybe you could do an album outlawing Cars]if you’re so upset that the Soldiers die in a War. Statistically, you have a better chance of Living over in Iraq than on a U.S. Highway. Sing about that Neil Young. 800,000 persons go missing in the United States alone [per year] Neil Young [per year] Lets do an album about that. You said lets Roll brother and now you wanna bitch out, that’s what a democrat would do, real men tough it out. You sing how you hate drugs yet you’re a known powder head, go figure. Nah, Neil, Bush is a good man, he don’t deserve to be bashed so you can make your pals Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez happy. Soldiers die ? And they Volunteered to do so ? YEP. But know this Neil Young, they were given the best Training, Food, Pay, Medical Attention, Insurance and Living Conditions in the world. They have the best chance to survive but in War, people die. Saddam Hussein refused to adhere to the U.N. Resolutions which were a condition of Gulf War (1), the U.N. refused to enforce those resolutions thus Bush said this fucker is outa there. God bless Bush for that. Good. How come Neil Young you never did an album about the hundreds of thousands of people Saddam slaughtered, How come you never bashed Saddam ? How come you never Bash Kim, Jong Il ? Or Arafat in his day ? or the French or Koffi Annan’s son for Stealing Millions while Iraqis starved fuckin HUH ???? You Bash the President of the United States ? Bush sends 110 Billion dollars to New Fuckin Orleans and you Bash him. Bush has given about 300 times what the Clinton Administration gave to stomp out Aids in Africa yet Clinton is the Aids president. You see Neil Young, whether you know it or not, you’re filled with HATE. HATE MAN HATE. You don’t want FAGGOTS HANDLING YOUR POTATOES, DO YA NEIL ? then you do a pro fag movie, that’s your Motis Operandi, say this and that and do both. No Katrina people on your land, are they Neil ? Nope the poor people of Houston are footing that bill. Do you give a fuck ? Nope ? I didn’t think so. And Glen, I drew him here and you’re gonna steal my thunder by selling your soul to this guy for an interview ? At least have us both on for a debate. Jeeeezzzee. Another thing Glen, I’ll bet it is him, remember the Kazoo player came here ? He probably told him. Neil, did you give Rick the Bass player any of his land back, you know, since we stole it and all ?
    Woo Woo Neil Young. Is a Tree alive and a Baby not Neil Young, if so, explain prior to your next pro abortion Concert, please. Save a Tree and abort a baby, the tree is alive and the baby isn’t ? Make that work for me Neil. Are those Chickens still in your basement ?

    Your Pal,

    Mookey

  • Martin Lav

    Wow, I hope that really wasn’t Neil Young Mookey. You’d have pissed off your idol good. He won’t give you any tickets, but he might post your rantings on his LWW site to demonstrate the insanity defense of the right.
    Hey did you hear that Caribou are trading oil for food and that’s how they increased their numbers? Kofi’s son is cleaning up! If a tree falls in the forest and there’s no one there to hear it, does it make a sound? If a fertilized embryo is aborted and it doesn’t have lungs or eyes, doesn’t it cry?

  • Smurphy

    Wow…
    Either it’s The Real Neil, or a nock off neil.

    For the hell of it,
    If you’re the real Neil, LOVE your work.

    See y’all soon I’m sure,
    Murph

  • Mookey

    It’s Neil Murph. I can tell by the way he spelled Hezbollah, you know, the High School thing. One final thing Neil Young, what the hell makes you so intellectual when it comes to politics ? What makes you so right ? You wrote a few good songs, that gives you a soap box so you think it’s O.K. to Bash my President ? You don’t bash our enemies though, ohhhhhhhhhhh noooooooooo just our President who is doing the best he fuckin’ can. It’s not just a matter of me listening or not listening Neil Young, it’s the lies you are spreading to fruitcakes that could not even tell me how many branches of government there are. That’s the issue ol’ friend. Remember, we can disagree and still sit down and break bread. So how bout’ it. Send me a plane ticket to your next concert and we’ll sit down and break bread, your words, not mine.

    Your Pal,

    Mookey

  • Mookey

    [This is how I know it’s Neil]

    Neil, I do not understand what you are trying to say here, please explain. Thanks in advance.

    If you believe this is a war against Islam then maybe the actions of the President would indicate that and the responses by Hamas, Hizbullah, Shiites and Sunni’s all would agree.

    Damn, You were my Idol, but I have died a thousand deaths Neil Young. O’bama President ?? LOL, oh that’s a good one, your own band don’t even know who the fuck he is. I saw that @ LLW.

    Re: The now infamous comment #335

    Okay, so I’m going to try to address this the best I can.

    When I read comment #335 earlier today I was on a break from work at my current “day job” and read the comment while checking my personal e-mail (Blogcritics authors are notified via e-mail whenever one of our stories gets a comment. So as you can imagine I’ve had a rather busy mailbox these past few months…LOL).

    After getting over my initial shock at the prospect that comment #335 **could** actually be from Neil Young himself, I then took stock of the situation and came to the conclusion that this was not very likely the case.

    However, with only a few quick minutes to write something before returning from my break I hastily posted my somewhat “tongue in cheek response” (comment #336). In that I also alluded to an actual Blogcritics assignment I had for a possible interview with Neil before LWW came into the picture and changed everything. I figured if it was actually Neil he might have some knowledge of this, and that might help determine the legitimacy of the comment.

    Anyway….

    So lets get one thing out of the way straight away. And that is this comment from Mookey:

    “And Glen, I drew him here and you’re gonna steal my thunder by selling your soul to this guy for an interview ? At least have us both on for a debate. Jeeeezzzee.”

    Mookey my friend…lets put one thing in perspective. Whether your hundreds of comments drew Neil Young here or not, it is MY ARTICLE which drew YOU here and provided YOU this forum to do with relatively what you wish. So lets put this into it’s proper place.

    My response to “Neil” (if it indeed was Neil, which at this point I do not believe it was) was based on a previous assignment for Blogcritics to interview Mr. Young during promotions for the Heart Of Gold film. It had nothing to do with either you or your numerous comments here.

    Even if this were not true, I doubt very much Neil’s security people would let YOU anywhere near the man based on some of the very comments you have made here. So lets put that fantasy to bed here and now.

    Anyway…that having been said:

    I do not believe the person who posted comment #335 here on Tuesday was Neil Young.

    I base that on a number of things. Not the least of which are the style it was written in, as well the fact that I doubt very much that Neil Young would give a guy who has posted over 100 comments to an internet site the time of day…

    Again, I doubt his security folks would look too kindly on it for one thing.

    However, it’s not completely outside the realm of possibility that people in Neil Young’s camp, and perhaps even Neil Young himself have read both my review of LWW and the comments (including Mookey’s) that have been generated by it.

    We do know for one thing that at least one person close to the LWW project, trumpet player Tommy Bray, has posted comments here. Some very nice ones that i appreciated very much I might add.

    So….based on my own curiosity….

    Earlier tonight, I made an appeal to the editors of this site through our private email group, most notably the comments editors, to look into the origins of the comment in question. I haven’t heard anything back from them yet.

    But if and when I do, I promise to let everybody here know what we were able to find out as far as the origins of comment #335.

    Again, my gut feeling is that it was not actually from Neil Young. But I would love to be wrong about that. I really would.

    If the editors here can find anything more out, I promise that you all will know as soon as I know.

    Fair enough?

    Thanks everybody.

    -Glen

  • Mookey

    I nominate Obama to be the Democrat Presidential Candidate. Please let it be Obama. Obama/Hillery 2008. McCain for Secretary of State, David Crosby for C.I.A. Director, and Graham Nash for good will ambassador to Pakistan. Lets get Bruce, Barbra, Neil and all the gang out there singing one more time just like they did for Kerry right before he lost by over 4 million votes. Lets do a Wellstone memorial thingy, remember ? WE WILL WIN, WE WILL WIN, WE WILL WIN, WE WILL WIN, WE WILL WIN, WE WILL WIN, DO IT FOR PAUL, PAUL PAUL PAUL, WE WILL WIN ! Here’s laughing @ ya homie.

    Update on the mystery of comment #335:

    The mystery has been solved and I can tell everyone for absolute 100% sure that the person who wrote comment #335 WAS NOT Neil Young.

    Sorry to disapoint everybody.

    Trust me, nobodys more dispointed about that than me…well except maybe for poor ol’ Mookey.

    Anyway, once again, sorry to disapoint everybody.

    Incidentally, I do know the actual identity of the writer but will not reveal it for reasons ranging from not wanting to cause that person any undue embarrasment to the fact that in retrospect I actually think it was a pretty good prank…it even got me excited there for a minute.

    Several Blogcritics editors are probably still having a good laugh at my expense.

    So well done to the mystery auteur…just remember I do know who you are. LOL…

    Now back to the Mookey show…sure to remain in progress…and I’m back to the sanctuary of author and silent observer.

    -Glen

  • Mookey

    You’re welcome Glen.

    Ayy man, I’m just ribbin’ you guys, Jeeezzzzzz, can’t you take a joke ? I know it’s your site man or your board or whatever.

    Neil said we could disagree and still sit down and break bread, so I’m putting that to the test. I damn sure believe that #335 was in fact Neil Young, THE Neil Young.

    I’m telling you the guy was my fuckin’ Idol since I was like (12), I’m almost (41) Do you think it does not hurt me to have to disagree with the guy like this ? I always knew that he was a little left of center but the words to this album are off the fuckin chain. 335 has all the Neil Young elements, the comment that makes no sense, the mis-spelled word ect… and this “I only put out this album because I think this war is wrong and that the people were misled into sanctioning it”. I have heard him say that.

    Well Neil, Kerry voted for it, John Edwards voted for it, Hillery voted for it, why Neil Young ? Senators see the same intel as the prezz Neil Young. Kerry said 100 times that Saddam had WMD’s before Bush was even in town. So why are you blaming Bush Neil Young ? Is it the PC thing to do ? What is it Neil Young ? Talk to me Neil.

    On an unrelated note, I’m listening to the new Dylan right now and DAMN is it good on a first listen. Very dark, apocalyptic stuff. I’m gonna try to get a review up later this week…watch for it okay gang? Switching back off for now. G’nite!

    -Glen

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Mookey,

    It wasn’t him. It wasn’t. It was someone who did a very good job of yanking both your chain and mine. A very good job, and I do have conclusive proof of it but am going to protect that person’s anonymity partially because I actually do appreciate a good rib (including a number of yours by the way), and also because the comments editors would no doubt kick my ass if I didn’t.

    It wasn’t him Mook. I’m sorry, but it wasn’t.

    But you keep fighting the good fight okay pal? I actually admire you for doing that in an odd sort of way.

    -Glen

    Glenster,

    Ahhh but it was him, whether it was him or not. Know what I mean ?

    Your Ol’ Pal,

    Mookey the Mookster

  • Martin Lav

    Glen and Mookey and Smurphy,
    Sorry if my little joke was taken so seriously and I misled you. Didn’t think you would think it was the real deal, but then again as Mookey points out “it’s all one song”.

    Hey Mook: this is one confusing statement, wonder what it means…..
    If you believe this is a war against Islam then maybe the actions of the President would indicate that and the responses by Hamas, Hizbullah, Shiites and Sunni’s all would agree.

    Don’t you get it?
    Someone wants to blow up the planet
    Johnny wants to find out why
    Johnny did a show in St. Louis
    Love came through the sky.

    Oh yeah, they were camped out,
    Waiting for the sun to rise
    Oh yeah, Johnny sang out
    Love into the sky.

    Johnny found a place out in Texas
    Waiting for him to come
    Made himself a reservation
    And hope came, in the gun.

    Oh yeah, he was flying,
    Waiting for the sun to rise
    Oh yeah, color by numbers
    Waiting for the sun to rise.

    Johnny did some time in the army
    Johnny did a stint in Vietnam.
    Now he can’t forget it,
    His mind is confused, slipping from his twisted hand.

    Oh yeah, he’s still back there
    With one hand on the gun
    Oh yeah, he’s still back there
    Waiting for the rising sun.

    Now Johnny likes to go down the highway
    The wind singing in his ears
    Right up as most things go whirring by
    By day everything looks clear.

    Oh yeah, Johnny ride on
    Gonna find a special home
    Oh yeah, down the highway
    Looking for the rising sun.

    Martin,

    Or should I call you “Neil”? … LOL

    Listen no worries on the prank okay? Actually it was pretty damn funny. At least, once I was able to wipe the dripping egg of my damned writers ego off my face long enough to realize I’d been had. I still can’t believe I entertained, if only for about a second, the possiblity that it could have been **him**…LOL…

    Anyway, like I said, damned writers ego! It’ll get ya every time.

    I also wanna add though Martin that your little “secret” was never in danger of being revealed by me…even once I learned who posted comment #335. So you actually never needed to “come out” about it…but whats done is done I guess. Anyway, no worries on my end. Like I said it was pretty clever and funny once all is said and done.

    Next time you wanna do something like that though Martin? Give me a heads up so I can either play along or at least keep my mouth shut. You’ve got my e-mail right?

    Then again, I’m not sure poor ol’ Mookey could take anymore heartbreak right now…LOL…

    -Glen

    P.S. So does this mean I can start calling you “Shakey”?

    P.S. to Martin: Once I get my burner fixed, I think you’ve earned yourself a certain NY show you expressed interest in -Glen

  • Smurphy

    So the mystery has been debunked!

    Nice job Martin, I didn’t of buy into it, but I thought it added a certain twist, perhaps a bit of direction back to the thread

    Glen,
    I just ordered Modern Times last night, it hasn’t come in yet, which makes me mad since I paid extra for UPS overnight, but I’m looking forward to your reveiw almost as much as I am the album. If it’s half the reveiw this one is it will still be twice the reveiw of most.

    See you guys later,
    Murph

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Wow Smurph, that is soooo nice of you to say. Thank you. No really….

    I’ve listened to Modern Times twice so far. I’m trying to get it to really sink in before I actually write something about it because I’m afraid I’ll miss something after the fact. Theres a lot of depth to this record…moreso than I’ve seen from Dylan in awhile (much as I like both Time Out Of Mind and Love & Theft).

    So I dont want to write something, read it online, and then realize I missed something really important. Does that make sense?

    I’m probably gonna give it at least my first stab a bit later tonight though. So who knows?

    Day or so max on the review being up and published I’d say.

    But again, thanks for the vote of confidence. After being suckered by ol’ Martin, my writers ego is a little fragile right now…LOL…

    Its gonna be a day or so before I get a review up. Tonight I actually downloaded all of the lyrics which I’m going to wade through tomorrow night and then write the review. Without a doubt though, this is Dylan’s best in years. He’s talking some very apocalyptic shit here.

    I just love how now Gore is trying to ride to the top with this “Global Warming” BS. What a sad opening for a movie that was supposed to be based on fact..

  • Mookey

    There is an enemy out there, and the fact that the Liberals in this country don’t want to face it squarely in the eye is going to present and pose a real dangerous challenge down the road. You Libs know not what patriotism is. Patriotism is rallying behind the country, regardless of whether you’re Republican or Democrap to defeat dangerous enemies such as these we face now, the Islamofascists. Patriotism is supporting our troops on the battlefield simply by not undermining their efforts, their mission and morale. What you Maggit infested dope smoking Plastic Banana good time Rock n Roll FM types can’t stand is a recitation of history. Someone starts talking about Winston Churchill, or starts talking about Neville Chamberlain, or someone starts talking about how it’s the use of force that leads to victory and Peace, i.e., rather than the lame ass words used by diplocraps, they just don’t like it. They don’t like it because history gives us truth and a look into our own future. God forbid Liberals ever get back into power. My man Neil Young, been listening for almost(30) years to Shocking Pinks, Trans Bands, International Crazy Harvesters, Blue Notes but never have you fucked up this bad. We can still break bread though. I can’t wait until you’re a Republican again.

  • Martin Lav

    Shame on you Glen!
    I’ll check it out though.
    Hey, have you heard the new Tom Petty CD? It’s pretty solid in my opinion.

    Mookey,
    Can’t wait til the new John Lennon movie comes out……and oh by the way…..that reminds me of something…….I seem to recall that immediately after 9/11 the tribute to heroes telethon which contained probably the most powerful event in television history when Neil Young sang John Lennon’s Imagine. Now since that song talks about no wars, no religion, no countries…….etc…..I think he’s been fairly consistent. While you seem to think he “flip-flopped” when he also wrote “Let’s Roll” I think there’s a difference between doing the right thing when confronted directly by an immediate threat and making one up as in the case of Iraq.

    I wonder what Mookey thought when he watched this moment on television when his hero Neil Young sang another hero’s song. What did he think the next Monday morning when Rush Limbaugh drummed in his ear the threat of pinko commie hippies calling for peace?

    Hard to reconcile man….

  • Mookey the Mookster

    Dylan, possibly the only singer on earth with a worse Voice than Neil Himself. Fuckin’ awful music and voice to boot. This new album is most likely more Communist Propaganda, so why even listen ? You know what you’re gonna get; that scratchy mono tone whinny ass voice, 3 cords from any EZ Guitar Book and Communism on Parade. Communism for everyone but himself and his close pals like Neil Young, Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell of course. All those people need 50 Million in the Bank, after all, it’s only fair.

    I think there’s a difference between doing the right thing when confronted directly by an immediate threat and making one up as in the case of Iraq.

    Listen, WMD’s were one possibility.
    The fact that Saddam kicked out inspectors time and time again was a fact. After 9/11 this country was not willing to take that chance. Add to that the fact that Saddam was not using Oil Profits to buy Medical Supplies or Food for the Iraqi people in direct violation of the U.N. Resolutions resolving Gulf (1) and the result is we did what we had to do and are still doing it. The Motherfucker was a tyrant that had to go [period] There is growing proof that the WMD’s were in fact moved to Syria.

    The lefts House is built on a foundation of Sand. Don’t sleep there Marty. As for what I thought when I saw Neil do Imagine, I thought, that’s a switch. Imagine is obviously tooting the trumpet of Communism, not Peace. Peace is not simply the absence of War. I think I have told you that before. Think about it, again.

    Concert Turned Into Anti-War Rally
    by J.A. Gurney, Asbury Park Press
    August 26, 2006

    I waited until the second set. I said to my friend that maybe this set will be devoted to the old stuff. They started off with
    “Immigration Man,” which was really good and got my hopes up when they went into “Guinnevere” and “Our House.”
    I was really happy until they started singing “Find the Cost of Freedom” while tallying the bodies on the CNN screen behind them. It was very touching and made you think, but it isn’t what I was there for.
    Here is the problem: I did not come to an anti-war rally. I did not pay for an anti-war rally and I did not expect to be sitting at an anti-war rally. “I have been robbed of my $350. Where is that money going ?” Is it going to the poor families of the dead soldiers ? No, it’s going to fill the pockets of the bloated artists [Crack Heads and Cheese Burger addicts such as Crosby] who shove their political views down my throat. {see more @ Neil Garage)

    OUTSTANDING ARTICLE !

  • Martin Lav

    Saw this Mookster. What a crock of crap. Dumb ass never heard of CSN&Y before? Even before they were bloated old crack heads they were known for their protest music. What did you think you’d get? I say that just because you sold out and went with the establishment, doesn’t mean everyone else did. But Crosby may need a new liver soon so thanks for the money!

  • Mookey the Mookster

    Marty [on 373]

    He already got one. I wonder if Money played into his Fat Discusting Cheeseburger eating, Crack Smoking, Jerk Off for Lesbians, Ass in bumping him to the head of the line over Poor drunks that also needed a Liver. You can bet that it did.

    Gup, I have tapped my pen, just not hundreds of times in one sitting.

    Gurney is an idiot. Aside from the fact that he spent $350 on the show, which is idiotic in itself, they made it quite clear before the tour started what it was going to be. That’s like complaining that they only had Mexican food at a Mexican restaurant. Nothing better than music critics who are out of the loop.

    “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened.” (Norman Thomas, 1936 presidential candidate on the Socialist ticket)

    The war with Iraq has brought out the worst in liberals, all across America. We have witnessed those who preach “tolerance” become the most intolerant. We have listened to left wing tirades, ad infinitum, about the need for: diversity of thought, diversity of opinion, diversity of belief, diversity of values; yet when conservatives speak out, liberals insult us and assault us. Our criticism of their criticism “stifles freedom of speech.” Our responses to their actions are called “hate speech” or “black listing.”

  • Martin Lav

    Cutting and pasting from freerepublic.com website how pathetic. Now we know that the Mookey man has no original thought. By the way Mookie did you ever go to the first Neil Young Freedom of Speech Show? I did, it was in October 2001 merely a month after 9/11. It was at the Bridge School Benefit concert in Mtn. View Calif. and although he supposedly supported the Patriot Act (as you stated hundreds of postings ago) he was concerned with our freedoms at that time. I have the T-Shirt to prove it and I may sell it to you if you recant your Rush Limbaugh drivel and concede that Neil Young is the greatest American that never was…..

    NOW WE’LL KNOW “THE TRUE SIDE OF THE STORY”

    “The Path to 9/11,” a six-hour miniseries scheduled to air September 10 and 11 on ABC, has certain former members of the Clinton administration in a panic.
    ABC’s ‘Path to 9/11′: Bill Clinton’s Inconvenient Truth
    James Hirsen, NewsMax.com
    Tuesday, Sept. 5, 2006

    The docudrama is thoroughly sourced and exposes information that former members of the Clinton administration had previously tried to suppress: that there was a failure on the part of the administration to respond to terrorism, inaction that ended up being partly to blame for the tragic events that took place on 9/11.

    Why hasn’t “war on drugs” Bush grown the balls to have the poppy fields of Afghanistan destroyed? He’s certainly had the time and opportunity?

    Afghanistan provides over a third of the world’s heroin and a few dozen incindiary bombs don’t cost THAT much.

    Yep Mookster, Clinton didn’t get him when he had the chance and neither did Bush. I guess we’re even, but then again, Clinton didn’t start a disaster of a war to hide the fact that he bungled killing the enemy. You can continue to support a thoroughly failed mission, I guess we have no choice, just like Vietnam, and hopefully one day, assuming we all live through this, you can say we used War to create peace.
    I hope you’re right, for all our sakes.

    Kerry-Voted for the War in Iraq, Traitor to his own Country, fake wounds.

    Dan Rather-Fake documents and Lies trying to bring down a President.

    Michael Moore-Total lies put forth in Fahrenheit 9/11.

    William Jefferson-Democrat, Louisiana. Military escort to go to his house while people were dying to get a Box of Money from his freezer. $90,000 Cash Money [Marked FBI Bills]

Notice how the Democrats never said fuckin’ BOO about Michael Moores fake ass’d made up “movie” a useless piece of shit called Fahrenheit 9/11, but this true to life Movie “The Path to 9/11″ is being attacked. Attacked why? Because the Clintonistas such as albright and Sandy Burgler know it’s true. Most of you here on this forum don’t even know who I’m talking about huh?

    Hillary Aide Starts Emergency Fund to Defeat GOP

    Guess it’s not in the Bag after all huh ? Fucking Lier Bastards.

    Harold M. Ickes, a top aide to former President Bill Clinton and an adviser to Hillary Clinton, has spearheaded the launch of an ad hoc organization called the September Fund to solicit contributions to help Democratic candidates win in November.

    Ickes and his allies have formed this emergency committee in an effort to raise and spend as much as $25 million to influence crucial Congressional races and other campaigns and ballot initiatives at the federal and state level, according to the New York Times.

  • Mookey the Mookster

    When are we and the rest of the peace-loving world going to get mad enough at these savages, these militant Islamofascists, rioting, threatening death and slitting throats — and stop capitulating to them, huh Neil Young ? Bush’s focus is not on politics, and this is what people don’t understand. He’s actually focused on protecting the country. Madonna is going to portray her own crucifixion on a cross during a concert on NBC. What if a major American network decided to portray some sort of similar thing with the prophet Mohammed ?The president put the onus on the United Nations, cited resolutions that they’ve passed, and said it was up to them to enforce their resolutions to maintain their viability. If anybody else spoke these words on this day, they would be considered one of the greatest visionaries of our time. Kofi Annan, saying farewell to the Star Wars Bar Scene freaks at the United Nations. He leaves happy, he leaves rich. America: what a country ! I’m fed up with the world acting like a bunch of cowards in the face of militant Islamic threats. To all the moderate Muslims that are out there, when are we going to hear from you ? Typical liberals: unable to point the finger of blame at the people who cause the problems – be it domestic criminals, be it their own failure in social safety net programs, or be it militant Islamists who wantonly kill innocent people.

    Your Pal,

    Mookey the Mookster

  • Martin Lav

    Mookster,
    I suggest to you that the liberal controlled media and there inability to report newsworthy items not sliced and diced into a BYTE are not covering the multitude of moderate Muslims who are denouncing the actions of the militants.
    Or maybe it’s just that your King BushCo. when he did have the Moderate Muslims on his side and had them denouncing the events of 911, he cast them aside and went hog-wild into Iraq? Maybe after that happened and the Muslim Radicals starting blowing everyone up and taking off their heads, they got a little nervous about denouncing their brethren. Maybe?

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Oddly enough, (and believe me, I find myself cringing at the thought of siding with a guy who so arrogantly and selfishly hijacked something I wrote to make an internet soapbox for himself)…

    But oddly, I actually find myself in agreement with Mookeyboy on one point here. Enough so, to break my silence and chime in for only one minute. But it’ll be just for that one minute.

    And that is that Christians do find Madonna’s crucifixation thing offensive, and if an entertainer or a network pulled a similiar stunt doing some sort of similiarly offensive thing with Muslims, theres a good chance they might have some blood on their hands. Which of course is exactly why it will never happen. Say what you want about Christians, but they (meaning “we”, because I include Christian moderates like myself in this category…and because contrary to Mookster’s assertions, voting Democratic and listening to Neil Young does not make me communist or anti-Christian) generally do tend to be a more tolerant lot.

    Or at the very least, out outrage is expressed in less violent ways. For the most part. Doesn’t get more black and white than that.

    But before I hand back the thread that Mookey hijacked some time ago back to him, and before he gives himself a big pat back on the back or begins to count me among his delusionary and largely imagined group of “fans” I am also going to state this.

    There is a big difference in expressing a political viewpoint (as Neil Young has) in a non-violent, inoffensive fashion (political differences aside, protest songs are as American as apple pie) and pulling a cynical stunt with the specific intent of creating shock to generate publicity.

    Madonna’s entire career has been based around this very thing. Neil Young on the other hand, has always let his music and his art do the talking…whether everyone agrees or not. The choice is yours. Thats what makes this country so great in my view.

    So Mookster, you are now free once again to move about the cabin of the article I wrote back in May. Just dont think your arrogant hijacking of my plane has earned you any frequent flyer miles okay?

    Carry on…

    Ahhhhhh, you love me Glen. I can openly say what you think. You supress your own feelings for reasons of Political Correctness. You don’t want to offend anyone. Even those that would do you and your loved ones harm because you don’t worship the Moon God. Wake up brother, I am speaking the absolute truth, I swear it. I think you know I am. Don’t give Neil Young a pass because he’s Neil Young. His views are dangerous and will take you, your family and this country down the wrong path.

    Yer right Mookey, as a Christian brother (and as an accused “liberal”, because hell we love everybody right?…LOL), I do love ya.

    But you really piss me off sometimes with all your vitriolic hyperbole and bullshit. Ya really do.

    You are right about the networks and Madonna though. I begrudgingly am going to give you that.

    You made that one single point coherently enough and in simple black and white (out of what, a couple hundred or so with much more undoubtedly to follow), to make me come back out and comment on my own long since hijacked article.

    So good for you.

    But now I’m going to go back into silent mode. If the conversation does resume an intelligent tone at some point, I’ll probably be back. But not a minute before.

    Jet,
    Although America is a great Neil Young cover band, I hope you didn’t mistakenly quote their song thinking it was Neil ;-)
    Glen,
    Glad you came out! I agree with the tolerant Christian attitudes entirely……but I really think it’s more of an educational thing rather than a religious one. I hope I’m not wrong in saying that most countries that are devoutly Muslim, are impoverished and considered 3rd World. I think this has more to do with their intolerant behavior. As far as Madonna goes, I’d like to nail her. Not on a cross. Just nail her.

    Hey Mooker,
    Looks like your King BushCo. is backing off the rhetoric and giving the Iranians what they want…maybe he’s listening to Neil’s album after all.

    I doubt it Marty. But I’ll say this tho’, our Boys are dying in IRAQ due to the way Liberals want us to fight a War, “If we Must”. House to House, being very careful not to offend anyone, instead of the Ol’ Fashion Way which was to Wip their ass until they said UNCLE, Sam that is brother. Why do we have 18 Ohio class Submarines sitting there Rusting, Rusting, get it ? Rusting ?? LOL, Now I know why you guys love me, I’m Great ! Each Ohio class Submarine has I think 18 or 20 Nukes and each of those has I think 18 Sub Nukes. Hummmm, do we really need to put our boys in harms way ?? I think not. But Liberals want it that way, but they don’t want it that way ! Kerry comes to mind doesn’t he ? Now on to the news:

    Drug addicted Willie Nelson Arrested For Drug Possession:

    Lets see if the Palm Beach Post or the Sun hounds ol’ Willie like they Hounded Rush. Willie’s get high problem is real, Rush had proven, real back pain problem.

    Willie Nelson’s tour bus was pulled over at a routine traffic stop in Saint Parish Marsh, Louisiana. The police smelled marijuana and searched the bus where they found a pound and a half of marijuana and some magic mushrooms. Nelson and some of the members of his band were cited for misdemeanor drug possession and have been released.

    Willie a great pal of who ? That’s right, good Ol’ Neil Young !

    Mookstir,
    It’s better to burn out civilians then to let the nukes rust eh? Wonder why liberals have any leverage in this country at all. It’s radical “nuke em all” thinking like that casts ANY moderate thinkers into the RIGHT-WING WACKO category. So, I contend Mr. Mookstir that you sir are contributing to the liberal agenda by spreading your radical ideas and allowing people on the FAR LEFT to take root to battle WACKO’S like you. Hell you and yours will even throw McCain and Powell to the side and let them fade away. Get it?

  • Mookey the Mookster

    Well, Japan recovered and is kicking our collective ass, now arrent they ? Of course that’s because GM is forced to pay people that can’t spell their own names 45 dollars an hour to do a job a Robot could do for $2.25 an hour without benefits. Or they could triple their work force and still pay eveyone of those people a living wage with some benefits. But nooooooooooooooooo. Greedy sons of bitches need $45.00 an hour to turn a lug nut, with a power Tool yet. What was set up to ensure proper working conditions, reasonable hours, fair pay and protection against the exploitation of child labor has turned into a grab bag of goodies for the Lucky Sperm club (Those born into such a situation at the expense of the rest of us) Well the last laugh’s on the unions because GM and the rest of them cannot continue to pay people that don’t produce anything (Their Retiree’s for example) GM spends more on Health care for their retired workers than it does Steel for the fucking Cars. That’s insane. Back to the War. In War people die. It’s not our fault, we don’t want it either but not to fight a War because we care what people think or because we don’t want to offend the UN is crazy. Hey we fuck them up today, they’ll forget it soon enough and respect us more in the future. Look at the Libs in this country for example. They don’t even give a fuck that 9/11 happened. They want to represent these sons of bitches @ trial. They want these sons of bitches to have (3) hot meals a day, (4) excercise periods a day (5) prayer sessions a day to pray to the Moon God. They undermine our own President so Terrorists have rights. So I say, let em fly, fuck em’. Three Thousand dead for nothing is more than enough reason for some real Shock and Awe. All I can say is they can thank the Moon God I wasn’t President on 9/12/01.

    How much do the Union workers in Alabama and Tenn. make assembling Japanese cars?

    Over 6500 dead Iraqi’s killed last month alone.

    If it’s numbers your after, I’d say we met your quota by now.

    We had a chance to change our minds, but according to your Great White Hunter, Dick Cheney, he wouldn’t have changed his mind at all even if he did know everything that would happen. HOW FUCKING DUMB IS THAT?

    When will you right-wing wacko radicals realize that your far out methods and your sheer arrogance and dumb-struck bravado is contributing to the liberals having any voice at all. FUCK if you didn’t have to drag this country into a war, NO ONE would listen to the liberal left, they would be nothing more than a bunch of burned out hippies that proved their high ideals was nothing more than a drug-induced dream that wasted this country away for years. Bill Clinton took the middle of the road, rebuilt this country and left the LEFT on the sidelines where they belonged. NOW Rush and Bush and people like you MOOKIE come along with all your RADICAL ideas and you have FUCKED everything up and you have once again given the stoned out liberals a platform.

    I BLAME YOU!

    Neil Young was right all along.

  • Mookey the Mookster

    Marty,

    Bush never said this would end quickly. In fact he said it would last long past his Presidency. Forced to fight this way (by you Libs) this is the result. Our guys fight(Carefully)and die so that others (innocent or maybe not) may live. That’s just the bottom line. Nobody and most of all President Bush wants to see our guys die. It is the country and the way of life that must survive, not the people. The country’s obligation is to give the guys a fair chance of living. That they get. They get the best training available. You want to see first hand what Liberalism does to society ? Look @ Cuba. Need I say more, O.K., Look @ Venezuela with it’s 85% poverty rate, all that Oil and 85 % of the people live in Poverty. That is Liberalism, ON PARADE. As far as the Hippies go, who gives a fuck what they think ? What makes them the authority ? They’re not. I want them to talk because the more they talk the better we do during elections. FYI, Clinton did not take the middle of the road. He is, was and always will be a Far Left Wing nut job and never even got 50 percent of the vote. He at least knew enough though to say one thing and do what ever the fuck he wanted.

    “They would be nothing more than a bunch of burned out hippies”

    That’s exactly what they are.

You Communist’s don’t have the ability to make blanket statements and impose them as the opinion of “The American People” such as when ABC, NBC and CBS was the only place to go. The Cat’s outa da Bag fool. So leave if you don’t like it here. I do. Everything I have said is fact, no lies. I don’t need no more “Liberal Lies”. The album is a lie, pure and simple. Now Git.

    Dear Fans,

    Liberals are fools who are first and foremost miserably unhappy. They don’t fit in with normalized society and culture. They are oddballs, freaks and kooks but they know that. American liberals (leftists if you will) envy total power and control that these socialist dictators have and the fact they don’t ever have to face an electorate, Chavez straight fits that bill. This is not the post-Labor Day scenario that the Commycrats had envisioned. They’re much panicked over this and they know that when a guy like Chavez speaks, he sounds more like what they’ve been saying than anybody else. Huh Marty ?

    Your Pal,

    Mookey the Mookster !

  • Martin Lav

    Communist bastard,
    I thank you very kindly for your concern and irony. Since you graced this lowly thread with your own two cents, I’d say that you are serving my purpose well. Since the title on this album explains my need to stay here just about everyday I think until this war is over this will be my little reminder that just like Neil and just like Mookie and just like you, I am LIVING WITH WAR EVERYDAY.

    Mookerster……I still blame you and since you can’t see the flags and boxes on TV you too are removed from the reality and since your only form of influence is from the Roosters Hawking from the Radios or Foxhouse you don’t know what the rockets red glare or bombs bursting in air really is…..I pity you.

  • Mookey the Mookster !

    Dear Marty,

    The reason you can’t see those boxes you wanna see so bad is that Clinton didn’t want you to see them. He put that law into effect. So once again Liberals are pissing you off Marty, Liberals, not Bush, say it with me now, Liberals are pissing me off. Bush is right, 100 %

    Thanks,

    Liberals ARE pissing me off M/M…..see post #436 and Clinton didn’t put any law into effect, it was an order issued by the Pentagon during the Gulf War and Bush 1, Clinton and Bush 2, all upheld the order. Anyways……We’re both still living with war everyday and life goes on for us.
    Was that O’Reilly I heard defending Clinton? Hmmmm…….

    Question: How many ex-generals does it take to screw in a light bulb?
    Answer: 20 and counting if the bulbs as dim as Rumsfeld.

    Did Neil Young just win an award for this album?
    Did I hear that right?
    Did Martin Lav predict that very thing on this site many months ago?
    Hmmmm…….?

    I’d rather be happy than right, so let’s end the War and give the Iraqi’s their country back and finish helping the Afgani’s build their country.

    When I said everything is on the line in this critical election year, I meant it.

    Just ask Charles Rangel, the man who would write tax law as House Ways & Means Committee chairman under a Democrat majority. When it comes to raising your taxes in 2007, Rangel just this week said “Everything has to be on the table.”

    Here’s how the National Journal reported it: “Asked whether tax increases across the spectrum would be considered, [Rangel] replied, ‘No question about it.'”
    (NOW)
    Do your self a Favor Vote American (Republican) Send a message to the Communists of this country like Neil Young and Joni Mitchell who are actually not from this country. They wanna raise your Motherfuckin’ Taxes tho’ ! Believe that homie, Believe dat ! They wipe their Asses with Money no matter how much you tax them. They are set Rich.

    A Democrat Affair

    Gerry Studds or Gerry Eastman Studds represented the 10th U.S. House District of Massachusetts from 1973 to 1997. He was born in Mineola, Nassau County, N.Y. on May 12, 1937; attended the public schools in Cohasset and Derby Academy in Hingham, Mass.; B.A., Yale University, 1959; M.A.T., history, same university, 1961; teacher at St. Paul’s School, Concord, N.H.; served as a foreign service officer in the United States Department of State from 1961-1962; member, President Kennedy’s White House staff, 1962-1963; legislative assistant to Senator Harrison A. Williams, Jr., 1964; State Coordinator of United States Senator Eugene McCarthy’s presidential primary campaign, 1968; delegate, Democratic National Convention, 1968; elected as a Democrat to the Ninety-third and to the eleven succeeding Congresses (January 3, 1973-January 3, 1997); censured by the Ninety-eighth Congress pursuant to H.Res. 265, passed July 20, 1983; chairman, Committee on Merchant Marine and Fisheries (One Hundred Third Congress); was not a candidate for reelection to the One Hundred Fifth Congress.

    On July 20, 1983, Gerry was censured for having an affair 10 years earlier with a male page. He turned his back as the charges against him were read. The anti-gay crew had worked hard to demonize him (as they would Barney Frank several years later over allegations of a male prostitute having clients in Frank’s apartment). Gerry held a press conference with the page and admitted to a relationship. They each firmly stated that what had gone on in their bedroom was their business, and absolutely no one else’s.

    Gerry was easily reelected in 1984, making him the first openly gay member of Congress and the first gay member of Congress to be reelected. He won 5 more terms after that, and retired in 1996. The district is now represented by William Delahunt.

NewsMax compiled its rankings based on several factors, including radio audience size and, importantly, the host’s global media reach outside of radio, including cable TV news, syndicated columns, books, and the like.

    Topping the list of these mega hosts is Rush Limbaugh, the man who saved AM radio from extinction. Rush reaches 20 million listeners weekly over 600 radio stations. He remains America’s loyal opposition to the establishment media, and he is the most powerful voice in the GOP.

    Voters have a clear choice to make on Election Day, Neil Young. It’s a choice between Republicans who understand the most important responsibility we have is to protect and defend the people of the United States. (Or) Liberals who will wave the white flag of surrender in the global war on terror and deny the tools needed to achieve victory. It’s a choice of whether we move forward with our pro-growth polices that have created more than 5.5 million new jobs since August 2003 and kept taxes low so you have more of your own money to spend and invest as you see fit. (Or) whether the Liberals will turn back the gains Republicans have made by raising taxes on working families and effectively stifling economic growth. It’s a choice of whether we will continue to confirm judges to the federal bench who strictly interpret the Constitution, not legislate from the bench. (Or) whether Liberals will block our well-qualified nominees in favor of activist judges who want to invent new laws. On issue after issue, the Republican Party is working to represent your interests and protect your values. If the Liberals retake the U.S. House and Senate, they will immediately move to reinstate the failed policies of the past. Their policies will cost American jobs, weaken our nation’s security and devastate our economy. To meet the challenges of the historic times in which we live, we must elect Republican majorities to the U.S. House and Senate. That means we must get every Republican, like-minded Independent and discerning Lib voter who supports our optimistic, hopeful agenda for America to the polls on Election Day.

    May God Bless America and our President, The Honorable “George W. Bush”

  • Mookeys Greatest Hits !

    Look you Neil Young Liberals, (A little something about you)

    When it comes to a liberal’s core value, it is liberalism – and it is dangerous. It has to be observed and known at all times who these people are and what they will do if given the chance. They will sell everybody but themselves down the river, (Barbra/ Neil) and they’ll think they are doing God’s work at the same time. No Katrina Blacks living on their land, that’s for sure. The poor people of Houston have to suck it up. Not Neil or Barbra, the people of Houston. Murder rates up hundreds of percents along with Robbery and Welfare. Do Neil and Barbra give a shit ? Hell fuckin’ no. Have you seen the Crime rates statistics in Houston since Katrina ? Give em a look see. 2 Billion in fraud and counting. Neil sang a couple of songs then pulled the Roger and out. Now, what is the # 1 objective of the terrorists ? If you’re unwilling to be honest about this, it’s time to wake up, slap yourself around a little bit, and get with the program. The terrorists seek the death of all who disagree with their religious ideology. How do you negotiate with people whose objective it is to kill you no matter how much you give ? Their pathway to so-called paradise is our destruction, is that not so ? How do you negotiate with these types ? You can’t. I believed everybody when they said that we were in this War on terror – when they said we weren’t going to allow these nations to go nuclear. That’s one of the reasons I am so frustrated since the ceasefire between the Israelis and the Hezbos. Today’s libs are worse than Neville Chamberlain because Neville Chamberlain eventually realized his mistake, apologized for it, and got on board with the right side. These guys on the left continue to veer further and further left without admitting any mistake. Neville started wrong and got right, The kerry’s of this Country started right, though it was for their own selfish reasons, and are going wrong because they think it will bring them political gain, they’re wrong, but that’s what they think. No matter what the president or Condoleezza Rice say, the Iranians and their lunatic president – Mahmoud Ahmadinejad – will sit there unsure about what Bush will do. One thing that they are desperately afraid of, is the Bush administration, you can thank God for that.

    The liberal elites do not want you worshiping freedom or the Constitution. They want you worshiping government. That’s their church. That’s where they preach, and it’s where they want you praying, contributing and begging for succor. Corporations are evil, and should do whatever the government tells them to do. With that in mind, here are the Left’s Rules of Corporate Ethics.

    #1. Put profits last and feel-good populism first. Business enterprises are no longer in business to make a profit, but instead to serve the “public good.” If you happen to make money as a business, that’s okay, but that should not be your prime motivation.

    #2. Put taxes first. The mission of business, after all, is to fund government operations with ever-increasing taxes, and facilitate the welfare state’s acquisition of government goodies. A good company has no right to avoid paying the highest level of taxes or using every legal means at their disposal to ensure that their tax burden is “reasonable.” Good companies: find a way to pay the most in taxes they can, and then do it.

    #3. Put competition aside. Aggressively attempting to gain market share is bad; it’s selfish; it means your business competitors will suffer – and suffering is bad.

    #4. Fund employee retirement. Since Social Security cannot be counted on, it is the responsibility of corporate America now to pay for the retirement of employees, no matter how expensive and regardless of the impact on the profitability of the enterprise. Corporate America is responsible for the retirement dreams of the citizenry, not the citizens themselves. They’re incompetent and incapable. Citizens don’t have what it takes to make the right decisions to retire successfully, in the Land of the Left.

    #5. Fully fund every employee’s health care. The company is responsible for funding all of the health care needs of all employees, including birth control, sex-change operations, and any new age treatment currently popular, including trips to Tijuana for abortions.

    #6. Fully fund time off of work. Employees deserve at least three months off in addition to their vacation, sick-time and personal days. The corporation should understand the needs of the employees and fully fund this time off, and provide the employee with their job when they return from family and medical leave.

    #7. Fully fund a living wage program. Employees deserve to live. Their skills and contributions to the corporation are less important than their salary, which should be inflated to meet their personal needs. No one should have to work for less money than they want.

    #8. Provide security. If a job function is no longer viable to the corporation, if it’s no longer needed or could be done cheaper elsewhere, the employee will be placed out of work. This is unacceptable. Responsible corporations retain useless employees and give them raises and ignore the global competitive marketplace. You never eliminate a job – never, ever, no matter how useless it is to you. That’s just cruel.

    #9. Fully fund dysfunctionalism. If an employee suffers from a mental dysfunction, meaning they’re wacko, crazy, suffer from an addiction or enjoy a lifestyle choice including (but not limited to) drugs, alcohol or sex in the workplace, it is the responsibility of the corporation to restore that employee to viable mental status by confirming the employee’s action as valid. If the employee wants a sex change, it’s good – and the corporation should fully pay for it. If the employee is an alcoholic, it’s good! It’s not her fault. Pay her full wages! And maybe, just maybe, let her drink on the job – if it will make her calmer and happier.

    #10. Fully fund day care. The children of employees should be the responsibility of the corporation. After all, if it weren’t for the corporation hiring and paying the employee, the employee might not have had children. So it’s the corporation’s liability to pay for and fund fully the children and their childcare. After all, “children are our future,” and the parents will be less stressed knowing their children are being looked after with corporate dollars in corporate day care centers.

    #11. Save the world. Good corporate responsibility entails support of whatever cause is at the top of the list of actions that will save the world. This includes (but is not limited to) state-sponsored discrimination, private-sector discrimination, affirmative action, AIDS and of course, “the environment.” But whatever the cause du jour, corporations must fully fund it and support these causes, in order to demonstrate corporate responsibility.

    #12. Conduct business – if and only if – you have time after implementing rules 1-11.

    Greenpeace Arctic Mission to Spotlight Polar Bears

    LOS ANGELES – Two US explorers plan to start a four-month summer expedition to the North Pole next month to gather information on the habitat of an animal they believe could be the first victim of global warming — the polar bear.
    Lonnie Dupre and Eric Larsen plan to travel 1,100 miles by foot and canoe over the Arctic Ocean to test the depth and density of the ice in summer in a mission sponsored by Greenpeace, the environmental group said on Thursday.
    According to some scientific predictions, the Arctic Ocean could become ice-free in the summer within a hundred years. Polar bears cannot survive without sea ice and the US government said in February it would consider whether the bears should be protected under the Endangered Species Act.

    Unusually heavy snow and ice last year forced Dupre and Larsen to call off a similar mission, but they now plan to launch Project Thin Ice 2006 — Saving the Polar Bear on May 1 from Canada, traveling to the North Pole and then back to Greenland. LOL ROTFLMMFAO !

    Hey Rubber Monkey…….good to see you still taking the fight to yourself! I see that Neil Young is up for album of the year recognition. I bet the liberal media will vote for him for sure and then he can get some airtime with Rush.
    I see your boy Bush has as almost completed his trifecta along the axis of evil. 2 more years of this madman and we will all be living in bunkers. I’m sure yours is all carved out and ready.
    I’m living with war and ignorance everyday and everyday we get in deeper, when will we wake up?

    At least I will be enjoying myself this weekend at the Bridge School Benefit Concert in No.Calif headlined by none other than yours truly NEIL YOUNG. He and some of his hippie peace loving liberals will be raising money for a good cause that stem-cell research may one day help, if we get that boy-George-Bush out of office and placed as King of Iraq where he belongs. Anyway, I hope I hear some of his stuff from this album as I think this is some of his finest work in 15 years.
    Since this concert is all acoustic all the time, I think that will make Living With War sound pretty special. Hopefully the ratatattat of the right noise machine won’t drowned out the message.

    But you keep trying Rubber Monkey.

    Fraud claims running rampant after Katrina
    Contractor problems, identity theft among concerns

    02:57 PM CDT on Thursday, October 13, 2005

    Associated Press

    WASHINGTON — Hurricane Katrina has spawned a second big flood that is surging well beyond the Gulf Coast: thousands of cases and complaints alleging fraud.

    Seven weeks after the storm roared ashore, authorities around the country are amassing cases ranging from identity theft to scams by phony construction contractors to hotel price gouging.

    In Louisiana, dozens of victims have applied for benefits from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, only to find their personal identification information has been stolen and already used. In Texas, authorities say people falsely claiming to be refugees collected hundreds of dollars in emergency aid — sometimes going back two or three times each day.

    And in Mississippi, authorities are on the lookout for a woman who was charging victims $50 to use her “super-duper FEMA phone” — which she said would let frustrated callers bypass busy signals on a direct hot line to the relief agency.

    “There are some real oddball cases,” said Mississippi Assistant Attorney General Grant Hedgepeth, who heads the state’s consumer protection office. Mississippi investigators have received more than 1,000 complaints — about hotel and gas price gouging, phony insurance adjuster scams, people posing as FEMA workers to collect victims’ personal information.

    The Red Cross is investigating more than 500 fraud cases, said spokeswoman Devorah Goldburg. And as of Thursday, the Justice Department had charged 34 people with various fraud crimes stemming from Katrina and Hurricane Rita.

    An estimated 1.5 million people evacuated their homes in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama when Katrina hit the coast Aug. 29. Congress has approved $62 billion in disaster relief aid.

    The big payout, combined with the scattering of victims to nearly every state, created the potential for rampant fraud in Katrina’s aftermath, said Jeannette M. Adkins, executive director of the National Organization of Victim Assistance.

    Scam artists “can show up to disaster relief centers in almost every state and present themselves as victims, and have nothing to show for it,” Adkins said. “And people are handing out the money.”

    While the number of federal cases is still relatively small, officials say the prosecutions reflect a more aggressive effort by the government to curb fraud than there was after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

    The federal government prosecuted 13 people accused of fraudulently seeking aid from the September 11th Victims Compensation Fund and New York City, according to the Justice Department’s inspector general. Focused on preventing more terror attacks, the department left nearly all 9/11 fraud cases to local and state prosecutors.

    With Katrina, the federal government created an anti-fraud task force the week after the storm hit to curb con artists and contractors trying to cheat the system.

    The goal is to make sure that money from the relief effort “doesn’t end up in the pockets or wallets of defrauders,” said Assistant Attorney General Alice S. Fisher, who heads the task force of investigators from 35 agencies.

    Nearly all the federal cases target people posing as displaced hurricane victims. Some are charged with applying for FEMA and Red Cross aid using stolen identity information; others are accused of contriving tragic scenarios to blend in with victims who lost all documentation of their properties.

    Two people in Los Angeles are accused of posing as charity officials to collect money from trusting donors. A Miami-area man allegedly solicited donations though his Web site by promising to help evacuate children and critically ill patients from Louisiana.

    The bulk of the cases are surfacing at state and local levels.

    In Houston, local police arrested 54 people over a six-day period last month, accusing them of illegally collecting Red Cross benefits from a Baptist church.

    “Some people were bold enough to come through three times a day,” said Houston Police Lt. Craig Williams, who estimated that up to 7,000 Katrina victims — and impostors — collected aid at the church daily. Victims were eligible for $360 individually, or $1,565 for a family of five — and “everybody was claiming they had five kids,” he said.

    Investigators for Louisiana’s attorney general are looking into more than 2,200 complaints about gas stations and hotels trying to take advantage of desperate families by raising prices, said spokeswoman Jennifer Cluck. In Mississippi, Hedgepeth said some hotel prices skyrocketed from nightly rates of $49 to $135 as evacuees searched for shelter.

    Even a Louisiana campground got into the price gouging game, Cluck said, by allowing only evacuees willing to pay $900 in monthly fees to stay.

    As the immediate emergency for evacuees subsides, authorities anticipate scammers will find new ways to defraud victims. Construction contracts are being watched closely by federal, state and local prosecutors. Roofers are under particular scrutiny in Louisiana, which has seen a spate of cases where little or no work gets done after scammers receive upfront payments.

    “We’ll probably start seeing some new trends as people look to get back into heir homes and restart their lives,” Cluck said.

    Rocker Neil Young for what he’s worth did not send any of his fleet of Busses to pick up any Katrina victims nor have any of them been spotted on his mega miles of Prime California Country side. Looks like he don’t want them round him either; however the good people of Houston have seen there Crime rates skyrocket 3 to 4 Hundred percent. Will Neil Young do a Concert to help offset the cost of Crime Fighting for the good people of Houston ? Bet not. Nope, he’ll blame Bush.

    Those in the military are the people who undergo things that 99% of the population will not, and John Kerry sees fit to insult them by suggesting that they are only there because they’re losers. John Kerry is a despicable human being and a know Traitor to the United States.

  • Rubberneck

    There’s so much to analyze from just this one little ten-second bite; it tells us what John Kerry himself and the Democratic Party really think about the troops and the US military.
    Is there an Amber Alert for Nancy Pelosi yet ? She cannot be found. Why ? Is she @ Howard Deans house cause no one can find him either. Now we know why ! There are a bunch of fake
    conservative “Democrats” running in House races and they can’t go out there and undercut them by announcing the full-fledged, left-wing, socialist Neil Young agenda that they have in store for the American people. The Democrats are trying to muzzle themselves. They don’t want their guys speaking in public, betraying who they really are. But along comes Lurch — long-faced John Kerry — stepping in it again. YAFUCKIN-WHOOOOOOOOOO. Keep talkin’ Lurch !
    Liberals and Democrats in this country have long-held contempt for the US military. To them, it’s the focus of evil in the modern world. John Kerry was in Vietnam; he knows — he’s made a career out of bashing the US military ever since he got out. By the way, John Kerry is suffering another delusion: he’s under the impression that he has a legitimate shot to win the 2008 presidential nomination of the Democratic Party. This little escapade blows that out of the water. Yeah Baby Yeah !

  • Rubberneck

    So it turns out that Neil Young’s “Lets Impeach the President” Video is Factually Wrong about the President hiring “All the Criminals” .

    It turns out that Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, and Scooter Libby had absolutely nothing to do with revealing VALERIE PLAME’S (outing a C.I.A. agents Indentity) just like they said they didn’t.

    Dear Neil Young,

    Acusing someone of being a Criminal is lible. But putting their images on a Permanent Musical Video is far beyond that, especially when it’s proven to be a Lie. So what the fuck are you going to do about it Neil Fucking Communist Lover Young ? YOU FUCKIN LIED ! YOU ARE THE FUCKING LIAR. A democrat ADMITS to being the Criminal ! So now are you going to revise your Piece of Shit home movie Video to show the true admitted Criminal ? Ol’ Barrel Chested Former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage.

    Rubberneck, I would like to politely appeal to you to take your political discussion to the politics area of the site.

    I recognize Neil Young’s record has overt political tones to it, but your recent comments have had nothing to do with Young or the record but are rather instances of you making your political opinions known. This is a very fine line and I am counting on your ability to see the nuance.

    Understand, I do not wish to censor you and am not asking you to not speak your mind. I am simply asking — not demanding or ordering or anything of the kind — you to consider making your comments on this and other threads more topical.

    Look, I’ve tried to be nice. I really have. But enough is enough. I’m asking we give this a rest, and if DJR’s polite request is any indication, I now have some official BC editor muscle behind it.

    We have a politics section for this sort of thing. Go there Mr. NeckMook. Knock thyself out. I suspect you’ll find a very active, receptive audience waiting too.

    In the past week, there are 476 documents on Nexis heralding the magnificent achievement of Nancy Pelosi becoming the FIRST WOMAN speaker of the House. I thought we had moved beyond such multicultural milestones.

    The media yawned when Condoleezza Rice became the first black woman secretary of state (and when Lincoln Chaffee became the first developmentally disabled senator).

    There were only 77 documents noting that Rice was the first black woman to be the secretary of state, and half of them were issues of Jet, Essence, Ebony or Black Entrepreneur magazine.

Why won’t even Libs throw their hero a friggin’ bone and buy these re-written 40 timesover songs if they think his “statement” is so great ? Surely there are 500,000 Hippy Hold overs around, I know most of them are on oxygen and in re-hab from all the smoking and Drugs but at least they could send someone to the store to trade their Government food stamps for some cash and then buy the CD.

    By The Associated Press (2/5/07)

    From Minnesota to New York, some schoolchildren are getting an extra long weekend because of the bitter chill that has spread over the eastern half of the country.

    Wind chills are minus 25 degrees or lower and some high temperatures today aren’t expected to climb above zero.

    Experts say exposed skin can get frostbite and school officials didn’t want kids outside waiting for buses.

    Maine is getting hammered with wind chills forecast as low as minus 45 by tonight in the western mountains.

    In Michigan, there could be insult added to injury with winter storm warnings for most of the eastern Upper Peninsula and the northwest Lower Peninsula.

    Amtrak shut down passenger train service in upstate New York west of Albany and numerous schools closed due to whiteouts from lake-effect snow and below zero wind chills.

    HOW CAN THIS BE WITH GLOBAL WARMING DESTROYING EVERYTHING IN IT’S PATH ?? HOW CAN THIS BE NEIL ?

    Hummmm, now, lets see. If it’s below 32 degrees, it’s gonna freeze, soooo, How can Ice Melt in the Artic if the High is (ZERO) as far south as New York ? Could Global Warming be a HOAX Neil ? Might you have been hood winked ? If we’re on track for the coldest February on Record, how can there be Global Warming ?

    ANSWER: Neil, you’re a LIAR, or DUMB OR both.

    The album has some awsome songs, and they accurately reflect the sick-and-tired spirit of most Americans.

    EVeryoen is sick of the rhetoric and the bullshit elitist political system in America. Our governmental system is such a lame sham.

    Democracy? Haha.. really… it’s elitist, corporate, bullshit. Neil young takes aim a George Bush because he personifies the rediculous state of America today.

    For those who havent heard his album, Young is simply pointing out that George Bush is a bafoon, and how sickening that this idiot is running our country.

    Don’t we all agree on this point? lets move on.

  • Martin Lav

    I agree, but how can we move on when “I’m Living with War Everyday”?

  • Spankmonkbberneck

    Marvy,

    Remember: Neil Young nominated for three Grammy’s! Told you RubberMonkeySpanker.

    “Living with War” Best Rock Album huh ?

    (Try)

    Rock Album: “Stadium Arcadium,” Red Hot Chili Peppers.

    I TOLD YOU MARVY ! LOLing !

    Your Pal,

    Spankmonkbberneck

  • zingzing

    yeah, the ice is melting. der.

    and we’re talking AVERAGE temperatures over YEARS, not some cold snap in buffalo.

    whether or not it’s natural, i can’t say either way, i think it’s obvious that we need to do what we can to lessen the impact we have on our climate or atmosphere or whatever. why not? how could it hurt to be a little cleaner?

  • Martin Lav

    Glen,
    Are you now complaining about ticket prices over on Thrasher? Don’t let spanktherubbermonkey go trolling over there now.
    Maybe Neil needs to make some money up on the LWW album. Although I thought it was and is a rocking album with a GREAT message, I guess Rush Limbaugh and paranoids were able to scare the masses off.
    Pay the price enjoy the show and then write a few more reviews to pay it off :-)

  • http://theglenblog.blogspot.com Glen Boyd

    Actually I’m complaining about them HERE Marv. Thrasher just picked up the story (he’s also issued me a challenge to respond — which will be forthcoming).

    Say hi to the ol’ rubber mookster for me okay?

    -Glen

  • Martin Lav

    I suppose you won’t be denied and I’m certain you won’t be disappointed at the show.
    Can’t believe I’m not going myself, but I saw a solo acoustic Neil at the Wiltern Theater in LA a few years back and it was well worth the price. I’ll be seeing Neil at the Bridge School in a few weeks, so that’ll do me for a while.
    Live Music’s Better!

  • RUBBERMOOKSTER

    He returneth with a vengence. Chrome Dreams II seems to be apolitical. Thank goodness. In spirit road we see a combination of Mansion on the hill feel with the good ol’ Hey Hey My My (Rust Never Sleeps) Riff. Dirty Ol’ Man is Pice of Crap (Sleeps with Angels) re-written, an obvious throw away. Beautiful Blue bird is Natural Beauty (Harvest Moon)re-written. Hidden path is Change your Mind / Down by the River (Sleeps with Angels / Everybody knows this is Nowhere respectively)re-written. The Way is re-written from a song on Hawks and Doves called Lost in Space. Got your number Neil Young. I’m no better than you for what I’ve shown.

  • RUBBERMOOKSTER

    The Believer-left over crap from Are you Passionate. Ordinary People-Left over from the Bluenotes era. That’s a good song.

    Yours,

    RUBBERMOOKSTER

  • RUBBERMOOKSTER

    By the way Marv, Glenn isn’t telling the Mookster anything he doesnt already know. Limousine Liberals always jack their prices. The Hype with Neil Young is that every album he puts out is his “Greatest Album ever”. Though most of his albums don’t even go Gold. No wonder Geffen sued him. What kind of artist puts out records intentionally not to sell ? Remember how ol’ Neil would rail against Ticketmaster, now he can rail against himself. Limousine Liberals as fake as the day is long.

  • RUBBERMOOKSTER

    And don’t think he don’t write off “The Bridge School” and “Farm Aide” concerts from his Taxes. Because he does. I got people in Texas still waiting for that Farm Aide Check.

  • Mookey

    Oh and BTW, Natural Beauty is a re-write of the original of the International Crazy Harvesters classic “Beautiful Blue Bird”. So now it’s a re-write of itself. Just want to make it clear that I knew that as most of you fledgling Neil fans would’nt. TeeHeeHee.

    Down with Liberalism !

  • http://www.maskedmoviesnobs.com El Bicho

    Rather ironic you would call Neil out for repeating himself when all your posts are a repeat of your previous work, Mook.

  • Mookey

    Limousine Liberals SUCK ! Hypocrits !

  • Mookey

    Neil Young, don’t know what to say to you bro. What do you say now that we found out that the person that outed Valarie Plame was a big fat Democrat ? Who’s the man that hired all the Criminals ? Wasn’t Bush was it ? You Liberals destroyed Scooter Libby’s life over something he did not do. I’ll bet Former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage is all broken up over it. Are you broken up over it ? Every fuckin thing you Liberals touch turns to shit. Everything you Liberals try brings hardship. All anyone needs is time to prove that. A look to modern history will prove it too. How many illegals live at your place there Neil ? How many Katrina victims set up at your place there Neil ? Anwar Neil ? No one would ever want to go there because there’s nothing there. All we want is to drill a couple of holes, that’s it. This way we can be a lot more energy independent but you Libs can’t have America be strong can you Neil ? You spit in the face of the country that has made you a near Billionaire. You and your MASH pal Mike Ferrell and that Ed Asner and Meat Head from All in the Family, COMMUNIST AMERICA HATERS THROUGH AND THROUGH, All of you. You wrote some great songs but none the less, you make me Sick.

    Would someone please argue with me ? I getting bored.

    We do have a Politics section, Mookey. Why don’t you come on over there and get skewered?

  • Mookey

    I think Canadians should give Canada back to the Indians in light of what just happened. I also think that a super highway should be build at Canadian expense from Canada to Mexico beacuse the Mexican people have a right to work in Canada. I think Neil Young would agree.

    Hi Dr. Dre

    Mookey

  • Mookey

    Hip Hop got turned into Hit Pop the second a rec-it was numba 1 on tha pop chartz

  • Mookey

    Wadd dup Dre ?

  • Mookey

    Dre,

    This album was Politics pure and simple, too simple if you know what I mean. Am G F simple.

  • http://drdreadful.blogspot.com Dr Dreadful

    I think you’re holding Neil Young up to rather unrealistic standards, Mookey. He’s a rock star, not a political economist.

    You wouldn’t go to the Dalai Lama for a Superbowl prediction, either.

    Does anyone know where that gun is that Clavos used this morning?
