Up early as usual, this morning. Good grief, there wasn’t any proper football from England until just about grocery shopping time. So, I left everything in the capable hands of our DVR and went looking for some music.
I found the Chris Isaak Show on A&E – a picker and singer I’ve always enjoyed. It turns out his guest on the show was Yusuf Islam, formerly known as Cat Stevens. A fine performer and even better song-writer back in the day.
Yes, he briefly discussed being busted by Homeland Insecurity and sent back to the UK – his home – when on a trip to Nashville to visit with Dolly Parton and start recording the album just now being released Stateside. The idiots couldn’t comprehend a spelling error on their magic Muslim hate list; so, he was arrested and deported.
The agents all asked for – and received – autographs.
It’s time to return to my own workingclass roots. I think Obama has steadily worked to accomplish a great deal for the people of the United States. After all, look at the assembly of crap politicians he still has to work with in Congress and statehouses across this land.
It’s time to turn his back on the American way of war, on being the cops of the world. Bring our troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan, from Okinawa and Korea, from Germany and Italy. Fill up that Peace Train!
