    1. Did Joe Cocker even one single thing to set the world right?
      His songs might sound beautiful but he drunk en snif himself to death. Why?
      Not a very good example to his loyal fans that worship him.

      1. Eddy, can only the perfect contribute? And cannot the truth of the song and its delivery overcome any flaws of the singer? I always judged art by how it moved me or inspired me. Sometimes it is born of great suffering. We just don’t know what challenges Joe faced, but I for one love his offering of this song. Maybe a good song does do “one single thing to help set the world right.” Here is another:

        1. Screw Eddy, he has neither the heart to appreciate your sentiments nor the intellect to know that which is required to be and remain free.

          He’s a dutch boy with no understanding of our way of life, he’s irrelevant.

  1. Whoa, Katie, I can’t go there, not yet anyway. I’m a bridge-builder. It’s only after many sincere efforts at connection or respectful communication that I would deem anyone “irrelevant.” Somewhere in life I heard that those who challenge us or give us a hard time have much to teach us. I may be naive, but dismissing someone only comes after all other options have not succeeded. Love, lift us up where we belong, no?

      1. Hey, #1, good job giving that other post link with ol’ Ductch boy talking bull.
        Galen may not have seen this, may not persuade her otherwise which is ok, I understand where she’s coming from, but we did give the guy the opportunity to redeem himself of which he made no attempt.

        1. Lucky for him I came late on that article, Katie. Everyone else had already thoroughly bashed his stupid @ss before I got to it.

          1. #1, I knew you’d left for the night, but I kept thinking if you hadn’t, you’d of sunk your teeth into Dutch boy.

    1. Galen, I definitely respect where you are coming from, I’m the same way in many ways. He is irrelevant in that he is from the Netherlands and has no understanding of our law nor does he care to learn, yet he wants to tell us what he knows nothing of. If he was actually an American National, perhaps he’d of at least listened.

  2. Oh, I see. Now I’m the new kid on the block. One simply cannot read everything or know everything. That said, here are some notes for Eddy in hopes that he may somehow come around:

    I was having a conversation with an acquaintance and we discussed the 2nd amendment. He said that he had mixed emotions about it and would never want the karma for killing someone; I said that I’d never want the karma for not protecting the innocent. Simplistic, but the point was made. Compassion has many faces. I told him I used to be where he is, but not anymore. I am a recovered liberal.┬á To me, self-defense, and defence of the innocent, is a noble path. And look at these quotes from Gandhi’s autobiography:

    “Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.”

    “I do believe that, where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.”

    “I would rather have India resort to arms in order to defend her honor than that she should, in a cowardly manner, become or remain a helpless witness to her own dishonor.”

    Remember also, that Martin Luther King applied for concealed-carry (it’s on record) and traveled with body guards, as do Michael Moore and Rosie O’Donnell, both hypocrites who seem to say, I deserve protection and you don’t.

    The gospel of Luke, chapter 22 verse 36: “Then said he unto them … he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.”

    Interesting that the city of Chicago and the country of Mexico, major locations for gun-free zones, have the highest crime rates in the world, while Switzerland, where most households are armed (trained in weapon use, as well) has the lowest crime rate. Some say being armed will just keep escalating the violence when just the opposite is true. Disarmed countries are the most violent and give permission to their governments to tyrannize.

    I forget who said it but, “When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.”

    “To disarm the people (is) the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”
    — George Mason

    “When only cops have guns, it’s called a police state.”
    — Robert Heinlen

    C’mom, Eddy, the truly good will defend against evil. Please think it through.

    1. Again, Eddy is from the Netherlands, so he has no business poking his nose around into our Bill of Rights.

      When war has been declared upon a people they had better be armed and ready to fight.

      Great quotes by the way.

  3. Well, I keep holding a candle to those (especially) in northwestern European countries because as I understand it those countries have (more so than here, currently) fallen victim to the globalist agenda of (nearly) disarmed socialism and they really are a functioning police states, though many of their inhabitants don’t know that. They have been set up as the prototype for the new society, especially Norway which boasts of its open-door prisons, not realizing the whole country is being turned into a prison. Many happy idiots content with bread and circuses. That is not to say that all these folks are deluded. Many see the tyranny and stand against it. Our problem is not just national, but global. I know we have to focus on our own backyard, but that old saying of “It can’t happen here” keeps me on my toes because IT CAN! The U.N. is about its business, one country at at time, of homogenizing us. All cultures at risk. So, (maybe stupidly) I reach to Eddy, and to any who might feel the boot and be willing to face it head on. Man, these are complicated times, and I’d avoid controversy if I could, but such is not the climate of the day. Thanks, Katie, et al, for filling me in. I come along best I can and I think of Eddy, who, as the clock shows, is likely asleep now in Europe. Perhaps when he awakes, some programming will lift, some crystallization dissolve. I won’t hold my breath, but I wish so.
