Not this again.

Every time we have gone to war rich men get richer and poor mother's sons do the fighting and poor people do the dying in whatever corner of the world the imperialists need to steal something. We came out to say no war in Iraq in the 90's and they went anyway an left a mess of the country, There's a name for it FUBAR. We said in 2003 please don't do that same stupid thing again and kill more people. The same rich men's tools that sold us the babies being thrown from incubators told us that there would be a mushroom cloud and they made 2 trillion dollars in profiteering no bid contract theft of the future of our children while they bombed and irradiated and poisoned the children of a patch of land that once saw the first civilizations as they scratched a few words on a tablet. Today I am saddened to report that once again we have to take to the streets and say No to Murder, No to Imperial Amerika, No to bombing people in far off lands to make the 1% richer and poison the planet. Today at the courthouse in Eureka was a start but only that.

Local Aural Culture

Local is the theme that flows through my work these days. Local agriculture produces food in a manner that reduces the effects of global warming as well as global capitalism. (Shipping cheep GMO crap food to the third world devastates their local farmers).
Higher local wages that Measure R will bring stimulates sale for local merchants and provide local jobs. Speaking of local jobs WTF? is up with the Camber of Commerce, a group paid for with local tax dollars hiring out of town bands to come here by bus and undermine the local working musicians?
The Fair Wage Folks know that the local pool of musical talent is deep, (look at some of the fair wage cafe posts) and to keep it that way let's spend some of those Tax Dollars locally.
Some photos from our preconcert concert. Thanks to Electric Bill and Sarah Torres for the Local Tunes.
