Sweet Neo-Con

On the soon to be released Rolling Stones album there's a politically tinged song titled "Sweet Neo-Con". It's quite critical of some recent U.S. foreign policy moves.

CNN Story with video interview

Will Sir Mick and the boys be "Dixie Chicked" as the vast right wing conspiracy get their Ya-Yas out, or will the legions of still smoking 50-65 years olds rush to Give 'Em Shelter?
Lugnut, thanks for giving us "the facts". Without your direction I can't imagine the quagmire we would get ourselves into. Of course, your opinions, I'm sorry, your facts, would be the same if the Stones had written a song lauding the neo-cons.

Hey, it's only rock 'n roll and it's a gas, gas, gas!

You're more correct than you realize. I'm equally angry with the knee jerk, too greedy, far right and criticize them in these threads too. Anyone that doesn't believe in the power of peer pressure (positive and negative) and potential damaging tribalism that is growing in this country have their heads burrowed deeply in the sand. You are always welcome to contact me offline for further discussion either through email or phone so that we don't get this thread deleted. At least I got your attention, huh?
Lugnut- I'm curious. Who is your favorite: Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly or Dr. Laura Schlessinger? And do you listen to them using a tube, or solid state tuner?
Lugnut, you state:
The Stones rate right up there with Harry Belefonte for not knowing how to reason.
I'm not sure what you're refering to concerning Harry Belefonte. Could you explain? Thanks.
Any of you guys can contact me offline if you wish.

Rosstman, I rarely listen to any talking heads. Limbaugh is by far the worst example of the bunch. Can't stand the guy.
My tuner plays music (NPR) because of the high broadcast quality. Can't stand their news however.

Belefonte lashed out at the Bush administraton last week saying that Hitlers Nazi's had jews within their administration, the comparison being to Condoleza Rice and Colin Powell. Of course, the jewish community came unglued because it was totally untrue and he had to retract the statement. I find it okay if he doesn't agree with these two highly placed blacks but comparing them to any higher ups within the Nazi's was a stupid and ill inoformed thing to do, and beyond rude. This was just vicious. No, I'm no Bush supporter even though I voted for him. I have no problem attacking anyone using truth. That's fair. Lying is not fair and one cannot disprove a negative.

I subscribe to two papers, watch network news and cable news each once a day. Those things that interest me I then seek out further information. But honestly folks, most issues reside close enough to home that not being informed is a sign of not caring. Long ago I thought about providing folks with a subscription of daily "Cliff Notes" about issues that face us. Shoulda done it.

Please, don't ask me more questions in this thread. I'm outta here but available.
