You Don't Stay The Course on a Horse That's Going the Wrong Way


Words & music by Bob Wickline/Cascade Mountain Music/ASCAP
Listen.

TRACK #1 (1:00)
WITHOUT SPOKEN INTRO
0:00(Guitar riff)
(VERSE I)
0:09 There's no other way to say it.
We’ve been lied to and misled
into another senseless war.
How many thousands must lay dead
before we wake up from this nightmare
and revive the American Dream?
If we blindly "stay the course,"
this horse will drown US in the stream!!

(CHORUS)
0:28 Let’s take our heads out of the sand & open up our eyes!
Let’s take our heads out of the sand & finally realize
that our tomorrows will depend on what we do today!
You don't stay the course on a horse
that's goin' the wrong way!
You don't stay the course on a horse
that's goin' the wrong way!

(VERSE II)
0:53 Beware the wolf dressed in sheep’s clothing
who betrays your trust, and grins
as another shock and awe campaign
of fractured facts…….
begins again!!!

Meanwhile, me thinks these skouts need to check their azimuth, kidz!! . . .What "horse" is the BSA backing, these daze??? . . ;-)

(clipped article from Associated Press)
"Boy Scouts in the Los Angeles area will now be able to earn a merit patch for learning about the evils of downloading pirated movies and music. The patch shows a film reel, a music CD and the international copyright symbol, a 'C' enclosed in a circle."

Now, this ol' yippy fool has played in enough bands to be able to "appreciate" the concept of an artist actually getting the monies "promised" when all is said and done . . . however, I also know enough about "This Business of Music" to know that despite what is said by these media giants about their "deep conern" for the well being of the "artist", it is more about share holder profits. . .(Remember when they conned us into giving up our $4.99 vinyl for $16 CDs by telling us that within just a few years CDs will only cost as much as a 45 single ($1-$1.50) and will have MORE music on them???. . . so when's that supposed to happen, again????)

. . . I think these young "space cadets" should take an "outing" to a few venues and talk to a some of these artists that signed one of these modern Machiavellian "New Artist" contracts from the media mogols . . .and see how the money is REALLY divided up in the music Industry and how concern record labels really are for the "well being" of their "artists" . .. especially once they start to "slip down the charts" a bit . . .;-)

However, what really gets this ol' "Eagle Scout and Order of the Arrow Brotherhood Member" fool irritated with this, is that given the REALITY of Hurricane Katrina and the REALITY of the Military Comi-SS-ions Act of 2006 . . . that this is where the Boys Scouts of America is putting their focus????!!! . . . oh, yeah, and teaching kidz to be homophobic apparently . . .;-)

Now, you can best believe that if Wilkes-by-Gawd County, North Cackilacki had been hit by a disastor like Hurricane Katrina in the 1960/70s, our Troop 336 scoutmasters Colonel Roy W. Forehand, Sgt Kelly, CM/Sgt Blackburn and Dr. Knox would have had our young asses out on the front lines with chain saws, first aid kits, food, water, tents, . . . .and a ton of plastic sheets (the Colonel was always amazed with what you could do with a sheet of plastic and some binder's twine) . . . we were trained to work with the Red Cross and the National Guard units in times of "Emergency" . .. ;-)

And you can best beleive that there would have been an immediate reponse to the Military Commisions Act with some of the local community lawyers giving talks to our scout troop and setting up "Citizenship in the Nation" skill award and merit badge classes to remind everyone of what the U.S. Constitution means and what the American Flag stands for . . . perhaps with a "Firearm Safety" refresher and "Marksmanship" merit badge class outing on the weekend . . .complete with an appearance by Silver Beaver recipient. . .

. . .no shit, the boys scouts have a "Silver Beaver" award, kidz and it was really hard to watch my dad receive his without cracking up in the audience. .. . ;-)

. .. an appearance by Silver Beaver recipient "Ivy Moore", who claimed to be a direct descendant from Daniel Boone . ..and was WAY BIG into Revolutionary War History . . Ivy Moore used to come to Scout functions dressed in a Daniel Boone outfit . . . much cooler than Fes Parker's and Ivy made it himself . . .Brother Ivy was a crack shot with a black powder rifle and was a total Shaman when it came to surviving in the wilderness . ..;-)

Although the Colonel and Ivy Moore are long gone from this plane . . . I doubt they would be backing this BushCo "Horse", nor would they have tolerated/allowed their community to be put under martial law by the likes of "Blackwater Security" in a time of crisis. . . .nor would they back "legalizing" torture and the end of Habeas Corpus . . . in my foolish opinion . .. ;-)

. . .and I'm pretty sure they could give a rat's ass about Sony and Viacom's profit protectionism "youth programs" . . . ;-)

Remember kidz, Be Prepared . . . Stay Awake!!! .. . there are "Fascists" in these here woodz . . . . and check your compass frequently . . .;-)

Sir Frederick,

It is time the two of us tangled.

You claim to speak for the "kidz". But you are all info and no action.

600,000 dead and you are "winking" a bit too much.

I relate more to John Perry's style. I don't think there is much to winik about here. You say all the right things and have all the right answers. Logic = covered. Emotional->Action = root squashed.

So what happened to the tank company? Did you try and corner the sliver/Diver market like Bunker Hunt? Do you still call yourself a CEO?

What do you look like in the mirror?

Ever hear of good cop - bad cop?

"Richie Rich" -> You are so smart. You -> "oh no, ha ha, please stop, ha, you're killing me".

I've spent a lifetime with Rock 'n Roll my Friend. Some of my friends have made it along way, too. No one you'd know--- or scratch that, you seem to know A LOT.

Be kind to animals, Frederick. When the humans are killing each other you can always count on a horse to be decent to its fellow, even if it might give an unwanted rider a good rib-shattering kick in the chest.

I AM NOT:

a singularist, because I believe in a higher power.
a religious right, because that is simply a pretty hate machine.
a leftish, because I believe abortion is murder (at some point) ( i was adopted, so the phrase "aren't you glad your mother was 'pro-life'" has special meaning for me. )
a neo-con because they are killing everything and cheapening the value of life.

What are you? A low hang-out?

Enquiring minds want to know. P.S. I don't need you or anyone else to quote bowie and tell me "I'm quite aware of what i'm going thru".

No shit. that pissed me off 15 years ago and it still does today.

Despite my Sophmoricness, and inhibitator, I donated $50.00 buck to Chris Van Hollen today.

So what say you? Are you on my team? Screw the gift prophets. Screw the IV Thristen. Screw woods. the Redwoods are my friends and never lie. Do you?

Game On.

I can tell you one thing... 600,000 civilians have not died in Iraq.

Do the math and you will see this is just another MSM political ploy trying to get Democrats elected in a few weeks.

We went in on 03-20-03 bringing that to today you have us having been there for 1,312 days. Now, take that 600,000/1312 and you get 457.32 people dead each day...Nice try. Numbers that high would be all over the news EVERYDAY and we both know that.

Between Iraq and Afghanistan that many people have not died... You mean that MSM is lying??? It just can't be... ;)

I would think someone of your obvious intellect would have done this math before blabbering on about it... I guess I was wrong about you...?

Richie "The Right Wing Kook" Rich aka The Jew...I mean Neo-Con

Nice try Jew boy!

The point is a hell of a lot of peopel have died; they have died because of this war; this war was based on lies and violates our constitution and international law. This criminal cabal running the country do not want us to know how many have died; if they had made any honest attempt to document civilian deaths there would be no controversy on the number.

Nice try Jew boy; I will stick with the 600,000 number until proven otherwise.

You are a typical Liberal Anti-Semitist...

Whoever the hell you are, you would be better off posting as the annonymous asshole you are!

Apparent ideologues, such as your portray yourself to be, shouyld be proud to attach their actual identities to their arrogant pronouncements.

You, on the other hand, consistently "grace" us with your "wisdom" under this cutesy little pseudonym, "Richie Rich" with assorted other useless and meaningless drivel apparently meant to give everyone some kind of "clue" as to who you really are. In the words of one of your supposed heroes, Alberto Gonzalez, "how quaint"!

As with nearly everything that emanates from the Bush maladministration as well as its devotees like you, the veil of secrecy is always paramount. They are the chickenhawks when it comes to war and the likes of you are the chickens, yellow scum, who espouse ridiculous points safely from behind a wall of secrecy. The results remain the same, none of you are very held accountable for anything you do or say.

What a source of pride you all have must have in eachother. Even your math is actually diametrically in opposition to your theory. Your demonization of the "liberal press" is even more telling. You are actually right that such a statistic should be newsworthy. However, since the "liberal press" is just another of your kinds talking points without basis, what you are really telling us is that the "main stream media" is miserably failing to report the facts about the Iraq war to the American people.

I'll now save you the need to reply.

RR:

You are just another ambulance chasing lawyer. Go find an accident victim to fleece their pockets, you (I can't take all you fun away)
go ahead richie whoever you are, fill in whqatever you want in the blank _____________________________________________________. . .

No ambulance to chase, you have terrorists to defend!!! You know the one's you want to give U.S. civil rights to????

Mr. Schaedler if you don't see that fact that the MSM is on your side, you have serious issues... "Without basis"? That is funny $hit...

Don't you love how CNN will play tape of a terrorist sniper killing an American soldier proudly but refuses to play the 9-11 video because it is too soon...? And this is bias without basis huh?

This follow-up backs the original studies . .

(clipped headline and article)
"Researchers Back Iraq Toll Report - Researchers have said the controversial estimate by public health experts that hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have died since the March 2003 US-led invasion is likely to be an accurate assessment.

Dr David Rush, a professor and epidemiologist at Tufts University in Boston, said: 'Over the last 25 years, this sort of methodology has been used more and more often, especially by relief agencies in times of emergency.'"

Cui bono? Who benefits from this sort of Genocide and purge? Who has a bunch of men in dresses with collection plates justifying it all with selective "holy writ"? (Exactly to whom does "Thou Shalt Not Kill" apply to and when, kidz?)

"Sally ,take my hand
Travel south crossland
Put out the fire
Don't look past my shoulder
The exodus is here
The happy ones are near
Let's get together
Before we get much older"

Do you mean to imply that 188.48 Civilian Deaths per day is OK? 257.58? 441.67?

WE HAVE NO RIGHT TO BE THERE. CONGRESS HAS NOT DECLARED WAR. NOR HAS THE SECURITY COUNSIL AUTHORIZED THE USE OF FORCE.

*ONE* CIVILIAN DEATH IS FAR TOO MANY AND ILLEGAL TO BOOT.

YOUR NEO-CON BUDDIES ARE CRIMINALS OR THE FIRST ORDER AND ARE GOING DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWNNNNNN!

I DON'T KNOW HOW I DON'T KNOW WHEN, BUT I THINK SOON IS GOOD. EVIL NEVER WINS IN THE END, AND THE FUCKING WORLD IS FED UP WITH AMERICANS JUST LIKE YOU. YOU LITERALLY MAKE ME SICK.

OH, and do I think I might not hear about something from the mainstream american media that is essentially controlled by 5 five multinational corporation with one goal in mind: raise profits or die?

YOU BET YOUR ASS. YOU JUST DON'T GET IT DO YOU????

THEY ARE THE PEOPLE DOING THE FUCKING KILLING, RAPING, AND TORTURING: DO THINK THEY ARE GOING TO TELL US ABOUT????? WHAT ARE YOU FUCKING STUPID.

HOW MANY IRAQI'S HAVE DIED FROM MALNUTRITION BECAUSE WE HAVE DESTROYED THEIR AGRICULTURAL SYSTEM?

FROM LACK OF POTABLE WATER WATER BECAUSE WE HAVE DESTROYED THEIR IRRIGATION SYSTEM AND DAMNS?

FROM HEAT STROKE BECAUSE WE HAVE DESTROYED THEIR ELETRICAL GRID?

FROM ILLNESS BECAUSE WE HAVE DESTROYED THEIR HOSPITALS?

AND SIMPLY FROM BEING SHOT IN THE HEAD?

WE KILLED 30,000 IRAQIS ON THE FIRST DAY . Remember Shock and Awe, or were you too busy watching re-runs of "Everybody Loves Raymond"?

I was merely pointing out that you people love to use numbers that are SO far out from REALITY that it makes me laugh. You possess ZERO proof of this number, or anything else you claim on this site, yet you proclaim it as fact. You sound idiotic and wonder why people don't take you seriously.

I never said any amount of dead is justifiable. But why not blame the terrorists for the deaths instead of Bush? You know it is these people causing the sectarian violence to kill other Iraqis, not us!!!! So when we do finally leave and this violence continues will you blame the terrorists? Of course not, you morons will still blame Bush... Again making yourself look stupid...

Now I saw a recent poll that said that the majority of people in Iraq want us out. Now if this is the case, I say let them have a full vote on it. If the majority wants us out, they voted and get what they have coming to them. And when violence increases and a REAL civil war breaks out, you people will blame Bush for that too. Civil War wasn’t all bad here. No matter what happens over there, Bush is to blame? Yet you people still fail to blame Clinton, even a little, for 9-11? Again, you look idiotic. But you people often ignore facts for fiction...

The MSM is on your side dip$hit not mine and they are all losing money Left and right... Wonder why...? Not really...

I do believe it was Congress that authorized the war. But maybe I just saw that in the MSM...

We did not kill 30,000 in the first day. You are something else. Where did you get that info from? Probably the same place that told you 600,000 have died to date.

You are a stupid, hate filled, degenerate, left wing windbag. I appreciate the fact that you do not agree with war but war is needed at times. But you would not have fought Hitler either thinking Clinton could talk sense into him.

Richie "The Right Wing Kook" Rich aka The Jew...I mean Neo-Con

Game Over . . . you win!!!

It takes two to Tangle and I have no fight with you, my brother . . .my fight is with a pack of rich dysfunctional frat brats with a Machiavellian Social Model based on outdated "static" Eugenics science. . .;-)

I am sorry that I have offended you in some manner and even after "sleeping on it" and re-reading your post several times this morning over coffee, I'm still not quite sure of what exactly it is that I have done wrong . . . My best guess is that you are "calling me out" as to whether or not I am "legit" or BushCo counter-intelligence . . . am I close?

Hmmmm, how would one go about proving "I'm not a Narc" on an on-line forum? Can you ever prove a "negative"? You can't, so therefore you are forced into that most uncomfortable of spots . . . learning to use your OWN judgment . .. not on the trustworthiness and loyalty of the "messenger" but on the TRUTH in the "message". . .

You write: "You claim to speak for the 'kidz'" . . . I really caution you there . . . NO ONE speaks FOR the "kidz" . . . the "kidz" speak for themselves . . . I try to speak "TO" the kidz . . .older kid to younger kid . . . while trying my best to confuse and irritate the Grown-Ups, which isn't too difficult . .. ;-)

Does who I am really matter? I have tried to present material to this forum in a manner that is "sustainable" based on MY perception of where the "TRUTH" of the moderator (David Swanson) is . . . coupled with where the "Truth median" of the active posters is.. . all "systems" have tolerance limits and one of the trickiest to design for is the "sustainable rate of change" or the "Sustainable DELTA".

You write: "But you are all info and no action." . . . What would you have me do, my brother? I am open to suggestions as to what more I could be doing with my very limited resources. (No, I am no longer a CEO. My company officially closed its doors and books last year when we could no longer afford to maintain it after Bivouac International, Inc suddenly became as popular as a "Red" screen writer in 1950s Hollywood once the wars started). . . .What is it that you feel I should be doing? Does what I am NOT so outweigh the value of what I am that I deserve to be singled out by your ire?

If I must defend myself, here goes . . .I feel/think that when exposing Machievellian "BIG LIES", the goal is to move the "System Truth" from the "static" accepted Subjective Truth, or Orthodoxy, to the "dynamic" Objective Truth . . . in a manner that does not drive a significant percentage of the system members into their "Survival Chronics" mode of behavior because either their Individual "rate of change" thresholds have been exceeded . . .OR the required change has hit an "Emotionally Bonded" (i.e. write-protected via Fear and Shame conditioning) Sujective Truth.

Now, I feel that David Swanson and the After Downing Street Movement's efforts have been instrumental in the change in the American/World "System Truth" that we have witnessed over the past year especially. Whether my bits and pieces of truth helped or hendered that effort I'll leave for you all to decide .. . However, I have never been prouder of anything than I have been a part of than this forum's efforts to expose the Truth about our current National/World situation.

When all we middle class geeks were building the "Internet", I dreamed that it would become the Ultimate "Printing Press" of the People . . . what David Swanson, Michael Rivero at www.whatreallyhappened.com, Alex Jones at www.prisonplanet.com, and all the other kidz have done with it has exceded my wildest dreams.

Am I on your team? There is no "I" in "TEAM", so how could "I" be? . . There is an "I" in Tribe, Community, Nation, Liberty and Civility . . .

. . .also in Pirate . .. ;-)

What do I look like in the mirror? Hmmm, best approximation based on "You know who you look like?" comments . . imagine if Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean) and Barry Mannilow had a love child during the early cold war . .. eeeeewwwhhhh!!!. . . good thing my wife loves me for my "charm" and not my looks . ..;-)

"I think I'm gonna love it
I think I'm gonna love it
Because I know someday someone else will see it my way
And then I'll know I was not wrong
I know they won't believe it
I know they won't believe it
They think that I'm no good
but I will make myself understood
'Cause I believe it all along
I think I'm gonna love it
I know they won't believe it
When they finally see the saving grace in me"
- Saving Grace by Todd Rundgren

peace.
