Give a Listen: Artists Fight Back

Following "My Sweet Neocon", Mick Jagger's fat middle finger in the face of the current White House occupant, my personal favorite post-punk bad girl Pink has teamed up with the long-dormant Indigo Girls to release "Dear Mr. President(sic)".

The Dixie Chicks have replied to all the death threats and boycotts with the first track of their new album, featuring Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers band members Benmont Tench and Mike Campbell. Say what you will about the merits of country music, these women are talented and have definitely earned some respect.

Meanwhile, Neil Young is about to release "Impeach the President (sic)", said to feature a 100-voice chorus.

And now even the business community's jumping on the dogpile, with Maverick Business Consulting tipping the hat to the aforementioned Young and cosingers Crosby, Stills and Nash with the parody video "Our House, Up the River from Wall Street".

Momentum is gathering. Let it sweep you up and compel you to take action today and every day, until the madness of King George has been put to rest.

Quote of the Day:
"Let me tell you bout hard work
minimum wage with a baby on the way
Let me tell you bout hard work
rebuilding your house after the bombs took them away

Let me tell you bout hard work
Building a bed out of a cardboard box
Let me tell you bout hard work
You don't know nothing bout hard work.

How do you sleep at night
How do you walk with your head held high
Dear Mr. President"
--Alicia Moore, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, "Dear Mr. President (sic)"
