war pigs

Something about this guy and his entire enterprise is downright chilling. This is the face of pure evil right here and another reason why I don't trust men in suits. The fact that he somehow claims to share similar spiritual beliefs as myself makes my blood boil.

To think about the way that some people exist to make a profit out of misery and get some kind of thrill out of blowing things up and killing people in absolutely terrible parts of the world.

And I'm sure people in Afghanistan love that we used 25 TONS of bombs to obliterate their village. Oh, we'll rebuild it supposedly, but damn.

I don't even know what else to say but let the music do the talking. These two cuts from disparate musical genres, but the sentiment is the same. I get impatient with a lot of where-have-all-the-flowers-gone protest music from the 60's and 70's because it's so lightweight and optimistic, but Sabbath will probably continue to be timeless.

This Fela release resulted in riots across western Africa that led to him getting kicked out of Ghana, the destruction of his home and master tapes, the rape of his wives, and murder of his mother. He went on to release albums with titles like "Coffin for Head of State," "Sorrow Tears and Blood," and "International Thief Thief" and more before dying of AIDS in 1997.

Oh jeez, like that town would have ever contributed anything to Afghan GDP besides anti-American jihadists & opiate products, hippie.

Hell with Roethlisberger, this guy should be Turkey Jonesed.
