A Military Times survey of more than 750 active-duty troops this week found service members oppose military action in Syria by a margin of about three to one.
“I haven’t heard one single person be supportive of it,” said an Army staff sergeant at Fort Hood who asked not to be identified by name.
Click on the pie chart over there to the right for a series of three charts summarizing the opinions of the men and women in America's armed forces concerning air strikes on Syria, whether President Obama's proposed military intervention in Syria is in America's national interest, and whether or not Congress should pass a resolution on military action against Syria.
When it comes to Jerry Lee Lewis, ain't nothin' we could say here that hasn't already been said before ..... and then some.
So we'll spare you.
This vid is titled from 1964 which puts it near the recording of Jerry Lee's Live at the Star Club, Hamburg which is commonly acknowledged to stand among the greatest live records in the history of Rock and Roll.
This is Jerry Lee Lewis just beginning to move away from Rock and Roll and into Country music, performing the Hank Williams classic, You Win Again.
I've no real idea on the drummer or the rest of the band.
If forced to guess, I'm going with Dave Maine of/and the Nashville Teens.
It seems that on average, Senators on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that voted for air strikes on Syria collected 83% more in campaign contributions from defense contractors than did Senators who voted against.
We have nothing to add to the two fine columns we linked to above and encourage you to spend a couple minutes with either or better yet both, except to say if you're wondering how the United States Senate can ignore the will of 60% or so of the American people and vote the United States into yet another war, here's a likely answer.
The following chart is from Zero Hedge and also links to the piece from which it was taken.
Many, many years ago a wise, old divorce attorney told me, and I quote,
"Roany me boy" he said, "There are three sides to every story, his side, her side and the truth."
We've all heard the warmongering NeoLibs and their Democrat tools, both in government and media, flogging their story about the criminal Assad dictatorship murdering it's own citizens with sarin gas in much the same fashion that the murderous NeoCons and their significantly fewer but still highly effective Republican tools in government and media, once flogged their story about Iraq and weapons of mass destruction.
Now let's hear the other side shall we?
Wherein the Russian, Iranian and Chinese supported Assad government provides evidence exposing the murderous practices of the US and Saudi financed al Queda Syrian rebels, the very same terrorist organization that supposedly brought down the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 and is widely promoted as being America's mortal enemy.
Your Uncle Roany is buying the third side to this story.
That being that both sides in this tragic c%#&@^$ f&#% are lying, scum sucking murderers that no thoughful person would under any set of circumstances have anything to do with, let alone partner up with.
Now, and here is the enormous catch, it's that thoughtful person thing that trips up both Neocon, Republican, government and media types as well as Neolib, Democrat, government and media tpes.
Who, as the Tea Party figured out during the Bush administration and the Occupy kids are figuring out during the Obama administration there is not an ounce of difference between them, as they are all pathological liars whose words on any issue are completely void of integrity.
This of course makes them identical to the Russian, Iranian, and Chinese backed Assad government as well as the US and Saudi backed al Queda rebels.
Do it not?
Watch this vid, it's short, to the point and should serve to piss you off real good.
As an aside, where are all those impassioned anti-war protesters nowadays?
You know the ones, those good folks out there in the street, spewing about lies and liars and giving peace a chance during the Iraq and Afghan wars.
Oopsies, silly question, they're Democrats and as such they only hate Republican wars.
Although well known for his soundtrack work for Robert Rodriguez in his "Mariachi Trilogy"; El Mariachi, Desperado and Once Upon a Time in Mexico as well as Rodriguez and Quentin Tarrantino's After Dark, Tito Larriva and his band Tarantula have unfortunately never sold all that well in the States.
Europe is another story, as they have consistantly filled concert venues all across the continent for going on twenty years now with loyal fans of their unique blend of Blues, Goth, Tejano, ... Surf maybe ... some other stuff.
I dunno, this band is a little tough to catagorize.
That's a good thing.
Among the several versions of Tito and Tarantula that have gone out on the road, this is my favorite as I am crazy about Caroline Rippy despite my suspicion that she would likely kick my ass in a fair fight.
This is Tito Larriva on vocals and guitar. That master of feedback, Steven Hufsteter playing lead guitar. The lovely and talented, Caroline "Lucy LaLoca" Rippy on the bass and Alfredo Ortiz playing drums.
Tito and Tarantula.
The Strange Face of Love.
And, After Dark.
Go see em if they come to town, you won't be disappointed.
