Rising Storm..?

Jackson Brown just released a song and new video titled "Living In The Balance." I like it. What do you think?

Music reinforced with words and pictures. Very powerful indeed! What we need globally is to have "Sanctity of Life". Never to kill anybody.

To bad Bush will never get to hear and see them.

Hey media! Why the blackout on Stephen Colbert?

I listened and saw rising storm. It reminded me of the 60's with Bob Dylan. We never learned we just never leaded. Nothing good comes to those to do so much evil in the name of God. No one can stop this continue run of crimes but the American people. This song will go down in history as the one that showed truth.

Great tune, I hope that video gets a lot play. Jackson Brown is preaching to the choir here ;-)

Great tune from Jackson Browne! And yes, music reinforced with words and pictures gives an important message... It does remind me of Bob Dylan...

It reminded me of the 60's too, Jackie. But at least then we saw a better picture of the reality of war on the news. I just can't understand how we lost the lesson of questioning the governments version of war. Vietnam should have taught us that the government lies to us. We must question what we are doing in Iraq and pray that this administration doesn't act militarily on Iran before the public finds it's voice and demands the government officials in both parties be held accountable for what they have done in the name of America. The pictures of the children break my heart, what will they think of America when they grow up, if they get to grow up. Aren't we just perpetuating hate that will cause future wars with more innocent lives lost. There has to be a better way.

Last two entries:

From Thinkprogress:

'Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI), in a speech yesterday to the National Press Club:
The consultants and the pundits and others will tell you…that it is dangerous to let there be any real light between our position and the White House’s position, or else you’ll get called soft on terrorism. You already hear people saying that the Michael Hayden nomination will be a great opportunity for the White House to show the Democrats are soft on terrorism. And you bet the pundits in this town will somehow suggest that this, too, just like my censure resolution, will cause the President’s numbers to shoot up. You remember that happening, right? It didn’t happen at all, but that’s what they’re gonna say, but it’s not right.
Feingold is right. He announced his plans to introduce a censure resolution on March 12. President Bush’s Gallup rating at the time was 37 percent. Today it’s 31 percent."

Go Feingold go!

In Gerbilgate:

From Americablog:


Bush's supposed pick for CIA #2 is a former marine, would appear to violate law saying Director and Deputy of CIA can't both be military
by John in DC - 5/09/2006 06:27:00 PM

UPDATE: A military reader pointed out something I was wondering about myself. If Kappes left the military but didn't "retire" - i.e., he just did his service and got out - then this may not violate the law if the law truly only pertains to 'retired' rather than 'former' military. Just a heads up.

1. Bush is reportedly going to put Stephen Kappes as the new #2.

2. Kappes is a former marine.

3. According to the law, it looks like the Director and the Deputy of the CIA can't both be current or former military.

The Gerbil sure know how to pick a candidate!

Good night! Good luck, Fitz tomorrow! Signing off!

C -
Vietnam did teach folks about the harsh reality of war. What people saw on their TV's got people out into the streets and the people demanded an end to it.

But VietNam also taught the war profiteers to control the media so that the public never again sees the true reality of war. They learned how to package it and advertise it, sell it - so that that people would not only buy it , but be shamed into applauding it. They really learned well, didn't they?

As for we, the people? Why aren't we out in the streets demanding an end to this? Because it's not very comfortable? Why? What iwll it take? My fear is that cmplacency is so like a cancer in this culture that things will have to get even more desperate...

Take it to the streets, America.

"The danger of such a broad spectrum of behaviour being packaged into a single portmanteau term, MSBP, is that in the hands of those who are not sufficiently trained or experienced to know better, it is a label that is all too easily applied without due care. This is all the more true when one considers the so-called profile of characteristics that are said to mark “

I don't think a 6th grader with a screen name like "dashiznit" will like the song much at all.

I just saw the video, and if one picture is worth a thousand words every image comes damned close to speaking my rage at what has been allowed to happen.

Thanks for presenting it in this space.
