What's important

Once in a while we're reminded of what it means to be a true American that has nothing to do with flags or slogans or songs (original language or translated) or faiths or parties. Once in a while we're reminded that saying nothing is sometimes akin to agreement, even if unintended and that to speak up is what it truly means to be an American. An America is spoken for in a multitude of voices, speaking for an array of ideas.

Maybe someday we'll live up to our promise. We'll look outside of our windows and see beyond our yards and realize it not about my eyes only.

Go to and listen to the streaming of his new album: "Living with War". The crazy cancuck has a pretty good idea of what it means to be American. He shames some of us.

One of my new favorite songs: "Let's Impeach the President".

Gogol Bordello - Start Wearing Purple
The Clash and The Pogues had a love child and raised it in Eastern Europe and this joyous noise has growns up.
