Glad to be back after some serious dental work and a lot of time on the road.

As I was driving back to north Alabama through the mountains of NC and Tennessee last weekend, the Muse began calling (not on my cell phone). When I got home, I unpacked, kissed my wife (aka the real Muse) and daughter, ate a bite of supper, and then went to work writing a song that was percolating in my head. When my "boys" came over for our weekly practice/jam session, I played them the song--"Don't Fight Fair"--and we ended up working on it for about three hours. Everyone seems to think it's a pretty good song. I really don't know what group/artist the song reminds me of; but, as the Bible tells us, there's nothing new under the sun.

Since then, I have written another song called "The Devil's Chasin' Me." It is full of frightening imagery but resolves well into the "light." I hope the boys like it, too. We'll see Wednesday night, God willing.

So far, we've done mainly covers--several Yardbirds' songs--"Shapes of Things, "Mister, You're A Better Man Than I," "For Your Love," and "Heart Full of Soul." Soon we'll start on "Over, Under, Sideways, Down." Also, we can do "The Weight" (The Band), "Willin'" (Little Feat), "Drive My Car" (The Beatles), "Dead Flowers" (Stones), "For What It's Worth" (Buffalo Springfield--the first song I ever played on stage at the age of 15). We also do a lot of free-form fusion and blues. I really like Jeff Beck.

One day, we'll be ready to take the stage (at least for an hour). All of us miss it (except Bill, who already plays with two other bands--but he really likes playing with us, too).

We're all old, as you might guess from the above titles. But we can still rock! I love having the Muse around. Live well . . .

We hear much talk today about dissenters against the U.S. government being labeled "domestic terrorists." That's just another way of saying "rebels." But for the U.S. government to call dissenters by these names is to turn reality upside down. What do I mean here?

According to the Law of Preemptory Accusation, whatever traits the accuser attributes to the accused, you can be sure fits the former and not the latter. Simply put, if the accuser calls you a liar, he is really the liar. If he calls you a hater, he is the real hater. And so forth . . .

My contention here is simple: the U.S. government, since it quit abiding by the Constitution, has been in rebellion against us, the American people. If some action is unconstitutional it is, by its very nature, unlawful. And what is unlawful is, ipso facto, criminal. Hence my reason for calling the U.S. government an Organized Criminal Enterprise, Gangster Government, etc.

We, as dissenters against criminal government, are not domestic terrorists or rebels striving unlawfully to bring down a legitimate government; instead, we are patriots seeking to rein in an overbearing and rebellious government that threatens both our liberty and prosperity. There are several ways of protecting ourselves. My preferred method is secession by the States. It is a time-honored and Constitutional remedy (no matter how loudly the Establishment may deny it).

In other words, we have the moral high ground, regardless of what the U.S. government or its lap-dog media might say. Live well . . .


Been away for a while. Glad to be back.

The U.S. government (and its many minions) is an Organized Criminal Enterprise. Let that soak in for a minute.

As a bit of evidence, see the following blog article:

Lying has apparently become a virtue in DC. However, in the case of the current financial/economic mess, the math will win out over the lies in the end. I suggest you and your family be prepared. Live well . . .
