Roll (rock is the beat, roll is the magic)

September 16, 2014

This ain’t pretty, but it’s live. (More rehearsal than anything. For the official studio version go to the big box set).
Roll is the opening song, from my 9th CD ,of the “outside the box” set, for Hunkasaurus and His Pet Dog Guitar (a back to basics, “this guitar is as good as a band”, style of music, or postmod music).

Back to Endless War… Again!

September 13, 2014

BACK TO ENDLESS WAR

When the 13 years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan were coming to an end, I predicted that there would be some in the government and media that would start another. And that would keep us in endless war.*

Keeping the US in endless wars, and in middle east conflicts, will not improve anything – many seem to suggest that success hasn’t happened for a decade but it’s about to change if we just invade, bomb, and spend more.

Remember the other side knows that the quickest way to sap the strength of this country is to keep it in perpetual war. That saps our resources, standing in the world, best and brightest young people, and spirit. It also allows the government to silence many of it’s critics – which it often does in even small wars.

We need leaders with the courage to stand up to endless war. We need leaders that can lead the world with power and strength, not bombs.

These endless wars not only hurt us there, but they hurt us HERE. That’s the part you never hear..

By refusing to talk about what this massive war spending is doing to the US side of the equation, the government is not telling the entire story and the media is slanting all the news. Before we decide to do another war we should both consider what it does there and what it does HERE.

Remember the cost of one middle east war would have ended poverty in the US through CBA’s community bank account.

Which would have better protected the interests of this country- war over there or no poverty here? That’s the other side of this issue. Talk about both sides please.

The enemies of our country know that the fastest way to ruin the US is to keep us in endless war.

Government, Media, and people, don’t get enamored with war. Before the US gets directly involved in any way, in any conflict or war, anywhere, we need to do the following 8 steps.
1. Let the combatants solve it – if they can’t
2. Let regional leaders and neighbor countries solve it – if they can’t
3. Let the UN solve it – if they can’t
4. US put pressure on combatants to solve it – if they can’t
5. US put pressure on regional leaders and neighbor countries to solve it – if they can’t
6. US put pressure on the UN to solve it – if they can’t
7. US put pressure on our allies to work with us to solve it.
THEN and ONLY THEN should the US even CONSIDER getting directly involved.
8. Consider that the cost of one war would end poverty in the US. Weigh the two options carefully. Would fighting this war really be better for US interests than ending poverty in the country?
============
To force the country into a war do the following: find a horrible incident. spotlight it and use it for selfish gain and endless war.

The 9th on the 9th

September 9, 2014

Dear Readers,

Today being the 9th, I thought I would take down my art work (cover and liner notes) for CD #9 to CCS, Crystal Clear Studios.

Turns out my engineer had a CD for me too! His was the mix of #9 for me to OK. If I do then we make the CDs. Good swap.

Number Nine, will finish out the 9 CD’s for the box set of 150 songs, – which will come out later on it’s own. Look for all these to be on the major sites for buying music by the end of the year.

Be sure to see the new issue of Musea for the full story of this 10 year music project.
