you hate governments do ya??

mmm, . . . that might be cause they (gvts) sold out (as opposed to sticking with prussian virtues free.de/geld and Knapp)to quick buck bizz and lost their feminine distinctions, common service and nurture oriented money, govt money, literally different and strong enough to weigh up to the scrupleless hi-risk kind that has taken over and sails under cover of being good enough to pay taxes with. . ... .. . .

And you Ryan? Where do you get your money? Does the cap at your feet list the varieties of monies you will accept. Do your choices noticably represent and alter the needs and fates of the vast majorities of beings with no choice in any of what matters to, through and around them?????????

Arkansas Guys Record Music in Baghdad 23.Aug.2005 18:42


I wanted to share the website of real music written and recorded by real soldiers while in Baghdad. These guys have a CD available with "rough recordings" from Baghdad. The CD is called Iraq Unplugged and the website is www.iraq-songs.com. Visit the website to read a small bio of them and purchase a CD. Great songs!
