Re: Why So Few Iraq War Protest Songs, by Joe Guzzardi
Referring to the lack of anti-war songs, I still have Eve of Destruction on a 45- RPM somewhere. The all- volunteer military certainly has its unintended consequences.
Switching gears, like Guzzardi, I am a liberal Democrat opposed to illegal and massive legal immigration.
I'm also a Quaker which means many of my friends heartily disagree with me.
One friend is actually on the board of directors of a day labor center in Denver! We have traveled to Mexico together, too, so it's an interesting give and take.
I've noticed that we Liberal-Democratic-Quaker anti-immigration folks are out there but remain mostly silent. Most Quakers may believe that anti-immigration sentiment is wrong or that they are unique in their feelings.
Our Quaker group had a meeting to discuss immigration last December. Wow! It got (for Quakers) very rough verbally. But as I said, it was amazing how many who share our opposition to immigration stood up, so to speak.
We need to get more Quakers on board. I always stump the pro-immigration folks, who usually also want high wages, with this: "You cannot simultaneously be for high wages and high immigration."
I also appreciate the fact that Guzzardi and Allan Wall work in the belly of the beast. It lends real credibility to their observations.
