Kids Still Rockin' in a Free World

old-black-kid.jpg
Kid with Neil's Ol' Black Repro

"There's one more kid that will never go to school
Never get to fall in love,
never get to be cool."


Certainly, we hope these lyrics do not apply to the family above.

One of the coolest things about Thrasher's Wheat is hearing from other folks in the community about how Neil Young's music has influenced their life. Thrasher received this photo on The Guitar Refinishing and Restoration Forum :: "My first guitar is completed - I want to thank you all...".

Thanks Old Black!

More on kids still rockin' in a free world and kids NOT "Rockin' In The Free World". (visualize)

SEND NEIL YOUNG BACK TO CANADA. HE HAS BEEN IN AMERICA 40 YEARS TOO LONG. HE COMES TO AMERICA TO MAKE HIS MONEY AND THINKS PAYING TAXES GIVES HIM THE RIGHT TO TRY TO BRING DOWN THE PRESIDENT. PAYING TAXES DOES NOT GIVE HIM RIGHTS. TO HAVE THE RIGHTS OF A CITIZEN HE MUST FIRST BECOME ONE. GO HOME NEIL YOUNG. IF YOU DON'T THE POLICY HERE, GO HOME AND PROTEST YOUR OWN GOVERNMENT. IT MUST BE BETTER HERE OR YOU WOULD HAVE STAYED HOME.

Nice comment Beverly. What I think Neil is doing is using something called his freedom of speech. A right that most democracy's are built upon. If you wouldn't have a right to speak up against the way the current government are leading the country, is the country really a democracy?

But that's not what you're saying in you're post, I know. What you're saying is that foreigners shouldn't have the right to speak their minds. There's a word for people like you, which I think you may have heard before. Racist.

not to mention that hes been here since 1970. 36 years, I think he is as american as any of us.

Those unruly, meddlesome Canadians! Do we need to build a fence along that border as well?? Home Depot's stock must be going thru the roof. Make no mistake - the conservative distaste for criticism of Dubya isn't reserved for non-citizens only.

Howie Klein has put his summary of Neil's LWW up at huffpo:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/howie-klein/hearing-neil-youngs-new-_b_19378.html

From the sound of Klein's post, Neil has a major statement to make on the direction our global society is headed. After his brush with death last year, Neil has turned from the inward-focused songwriting of the last few years to an outward-looking voice designed to speak to a new generation. He seems to be saying that the dangerous, incompetent, deciderers of the Bush administration (you paying attention, Bev?) are leading this country down a profoundly destructive path.

I simply cannot wait for this album to come out.

BEVERLEY

I WOULD LIKE YOU TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY BEFORE NEIL, MAINLY BECAUSE YOU TYPE IN CAPS. CAPS ARE ANNOYING, AREN'T THEY? HE PAYS MORE TAXES THAN YOU AND AS STARTED SCHOOLS HERE AND HAS CONTRIBUTED TO THE CULTURE? WHAT HAVE YOU DONE OTHER THAN MENIAL WORK AND CONSUME? AND BEING HUMAN DOES AND SHOULD PROVIDE YOU RIGHTS, THE LEAST OF WHICH IS FREE SPEECH. PEOPLE WHO WOULD CURB SPEECH SHOULD LEAVE THE COUNTRY. NOW.
THANKS.

Jesus. Never would I think Neil could inspire such ignorant animosity from people who act more like lemmings than human beings.

World is turning, I hope it don't turn away, indeed.

If people get that irate about a record, that is not even published, there must be somthing to it.

Bev, what can I say that hasn't already been said? If Neil hadn't been born in Canada, what would you say? Plenty of folks that were born in the USA, like me, I was born in Nebraska, American enough for you? I live in New Mexico now and a lot of folks with the same level of intelligence as you think I live in a foreign country, but all that aside......... If I think Bush is an idiot and is sending our country into a downward spiral (hell in a handbasket, if you will) where should I go? I anxiously await your reply...

and oh yeah, cute kid, nice repro of ol' black.....and as always;
Thanks for a great site Thrasher.....You da man!

Just a bit curious...IS Neil an American citizen--if not why not?
Unless it's still true that OUR gov't doesn't recognize dual citizenships...Nash took the oath years ago...I don't know what America IS, but this can't be democracy...

Hey Neil keep rockin! I used to work for Senator Barry Goldwater and as much as the left doesn't like him he would be for Neils rights.just as Jefferson, Adams and any true patriots would. People this is a free country lets not forget. As Goldwater once said "you don't have to be disagreeable to disagree".

LazerLoser,

You are a crass indignant narrow-minded sycophant.

If Neil were to suddenly stop you would have your head so far up his ass you would need surgery to have it removed. Do you have a life outside Neil's ass?

Have you accomplished anything beyond a BLOG and Neil’s ass? Sports, Family, started a company, gone fishing with your Dad? Taken your Mommy to a nice lunch? Sports???? WELL HAVE YOU!

I bet you are one big fat blob with no life outside the confines of your lover's grip....um I mean your keyboard and with your head up Neil's ass.

TYPICAL 5 Min in LazerLosers life:
Toke, type, eat chips, eat doughnuts...."yummy doughnuts". Type, toke, drink diet beverage, type, be a complete ASS. Toke, "Man I am funny"...Type, toke, eat chips, type.

Very sad LazerLoser I would hate to be you.

There is a process called critical thinking and this not the act of being insulting too others who do not ascribe to your wussy French Canadian philosophy of life. Now that I have insulted you it is only fair that I offer to meet you any place, in the US, to continue this discourse in a more…um traditional fashion. Yeeeesss let’s call it traditional values vs. wuss. Now, It has been a while since I have had the pleasure of being in the ring for a one-on-one debate, but you know what they say….It’s like ridin a bike.

In short, you are low-breed, common, fat assed liberal who believes in the bigotry of mediocrity.

Sincerely,

Mr. Man

Libs (Hate America First crowd) just don't get it. This is only the beginning of the war.

Don’t take anyone’s word about what Islam is about, find out for yourself. Please study the Koran and the teachings of Islam. It will scare you; remember the Satanic Versus? The idea that there is a moderate Islam is a Myth!

The tenants of Islam are clear: Deception, conquest, subjugation and conversation to Islam or death. There is no middle ground, no tolerance in the Islamic worldview.
