Zarqawi:Dust In The Wind

We've heard a lot of how big stars in the music industry hate George W. Bush and think the war in Iraq is _______ (fill in the blank with one of the following adjectives: illegal, unwinnable, unnecessary, unjust, etc.)

Unlike some who suggest that they shut up and sing, I encourage these so-called artists to speak their minds and get involved in the political process. I'm sure that while getting baked on dope, Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen learned a lot about geopolitical realities from their roadies and groupies. I'm sure that before they dropped out, the Dixie Chicks and Pink's high school classes offered them keen insight that Condoleeza Rice and Donald Rumsfeld could never achieve in their years serving Presidents in the National Security Agency or the Defense and State Departments.

In fact, I want to go expand the free speech for musicians idea to more genres. I demand to know how wuss rockers from the 1980's feel about the Iraq war. Styx, what say Mr. Roboto? REO Speedwagon, should we have fought this (war mongering) feeling anymore?

Perhaps if one asked the horrible band Kansas about the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, they would surprise us and decry the biased media coverage of the war in general. Maybe they would have said this:

Zarqawi dies,
Media gives a moment,
Now the moment's gone

All their dreams,
Cries about Bush lies, what animosity
"War we can't win,
Iraq is a war we can't win"

Media song,
Insurgents are like water
In an endless sea

Says all we do,
Crumbles to the ground, thanks a lot Dick Cheney!
"War we can't win
Iraq is a war we can't win"

We'll hang on,
Nothing lasts forever,
Not even your bias

Days like today,
Are wins to celebrate, we killed a real bad guy!
We're gonna win!
F*** you, media, we're gonna win

While I believe Bruce Springsteen's recent indulgences in supporting Kerry,anti-war this, anti-war that, etc., are totally wrong and misguided, I have always been under the impression he stayed away from drugs.
He was always quoted thru the '70's & '80's as having said he saw too many musician buddies ruin their lives and careers with drugs.
He admits he's always enjoyed drinking beer throughout the years, but that was the extent of his mind-altering experiences.
On the other hand, support for Kerry in '04 might suggest one was on dope, if you ask me.

It is true that Bruce scored tons and tons of chicks. He's legendary for that. Many people considered 'the ladies' to be his addiction.

I've never had much of an interest in Neil Young.
But he sure does look like a guy who has smoked a little dope in his time.
