"The definitive Neil Young site Thrasher's Wheat has done the hard work of assembling reaction from musical and political bloggers. Some of the reactions gathered on the normally apolitical Thrasher's Wheat show Bush's zombies in early meltdown."

"Young was wrong once before, condemning “Southern Man” 26 years ago. After learning that his album sales weren’t going well in half the country, he apologized and wrote a song about Alabama. Instead of trashing Bush, perhaps Young should sing a song berating Canada for embracing the destructive force of Islam by exporting terrorists to the U.S."

PolitaKid: Neil Young Song: "Impeach the President":
"As you may know, I'm a Neil Young fan . I'm disapointed to see him take such radical, hateful views. I won't treat him like many treated the Dixie Chicks and never listen to him again, but I'm certainly not going to run out and buy Living With War, either. "

"How should I put this? How but, Fuck Neil Young.

He nothing but another commi, liberal, anti-american, hippie. If he hates the way George Bush runs America, then he can just take his whining ass back to Canada. We sure as hell don’t need him here, complaining about how bad things are. He talks like he would make a better president than George Bush. If someone like Neil Young was our president, then every terrorist in the world could walk all over us and he wouldn’t do a damn thing. His little anti-war ass."

With that prosperity maybe you should be a better neighbor, instead of siding with our enemies."

Neil Young Attacks President Bush in New Album - Starpulse News Blog

paved.ca :: your GTA roadmap: Neil Young doesn't need him around anyhow:
"Now, with 10 new protest ditties recorded in 72 hours, it'd seem like former Ronald Reagan booster Young has marked which side of the political fence he'd prefer to be buried on – seeds planted back at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2003, during a press conference for the multi-media project Greendale, where he expressed appreciation for Canada standing apart from the foreign policies of our neighbour. It's no wonder that Young tried to keep his three-day outburst of sedition a secret, yet by having weblogs squeal on his behalf, anyone who'd be potentially interested in hearing a song called "Impeach the President" will be worn out by the surrounding rhetoric before it's even released.

Neil's statements are limited to glib scrolling at the bottom of his website – underscoring the notion that, since protest songs will never have Nixon-era potency in this information age, Young might as well bask in his complex contrarian legacy by bashing out a few oversimplified partisan anthems that vindicate his radical past."

The best is this guy who is so unethcial and/or stupid he claimed Neil wrote Alabama as an apology to Southerners (Obviously never having actually listened to the song):

American Flag Blog » Canadian Neil Young Once Again Wraps himself In The American Flag:

So funny. I posted the lyrics on his site and asked him to explain how that was an apologyto anyone. the fool took down that claim and erased my comment.

Funny how fearful right-wingers will lie to make ther point and then seek to censor and control information once theya re called out about their lies.

Swing low, Alabama indeed. Swing low GWB. You've got the rest of the world to help you along. What's going wrong?

Sounds like he was such a big Neil fan that he actually had "Sweet Home Alabama" confused with "Alabama"...that's pretty freakin' funny!!!

our country
10/07/04 Speak into the Microphone I am very upset after seeing the Michael Moore movie. It is so hard to believe that the American people have been duped. Fact is we have been fooled but not because we are stupid. The people who are using our young men and women in battle are the same people who have been lying to us for decades. The leaders in office are a calculating group of old friends who have built careers ravaging the ethics of the business and political world. They have taken every opportunity to gain personal financially at the sake of the U.S. with no regard for right and wrong. The main players are embarrassing excuses for human beings that seem to thrive in politics with a network of others like them. I am ashamed of the leaders and have real fear that the damage done may be irreversible. The world has experienced the WAR President. The citizens of America stood by and watched the 2000 election split the nation’s votes in half.
The thought that the victims of the 911 attacks were seen by the Commander in Chief as a perfect chance to put the Bush Plan into motion makes my blood boil. The government fabricated a pursuit of terrorists to justify invaded Iraq. This administration has used the lives of soldiers to carry out a plan to control the oil in Iraq. The raiding of homes by U.S. military forces was hard to watch. The disrespect for the Iraq citizens was appalling. I was saddened by the behavior of the 17/18 year old soldiers. I soon forgave them for they too have been misled and it has and will continue to cost many of them their lives.
How many people knew we had lost power and our most sacred and valued rights were taken away for the sake of national security? I did not know and can't understand why I never heard a TV news or newspaper report on something so important. Our President and his posse have taken over our country and treat us like pardon the expression ‘dumb animals.’ I question how different is our democracy under this out of control leader from Castro or Saddam himself? Every American must see Fahrenheit 911 and then do research on their own into the Bush family history. I had an interest on the Bush generations not covered in the film. I looked up G.W.’s grandfather and H.W.s’ grandfather and I wish I could say I was surprised at what I discovered. Do you know who the major financial supporters of Adolph Hitler were? The Bush elders did in fact play a major role in that time in history and can be linked with a financial disaster that dominated that era. If you have any doubts and have the guts to face the terrifying facts look it up and see for yourself. How could this happen to us? What will happen to all the soldiers when they come home and have to face what we know now? Will the rest of the world ever trust us or respect us again? What if HE steals another election? Most frightening we should ask ourselves could he be the devil? Lbcatlow I figure if the CIA comes for me I will offer to join the foreign legion in Siberia or just promise them my vote in November....... bastards

The Truth. The Why. The Good.

The city failed the elderly and needy ones.
No one foresaw this “Worst Case.”
Too many people are too poor.
Lots of people died from the wind.
Lots more died from the floods.
Many more died in wait of a rescue.

A million people are destitute.
Those who rely on faith will go on.
Each one will suffer from the memory.
The government is being run by the devil.
It is every citizen’s duty to help now.
The USA is crippled like never before.
Survivors who recover will become stronger.

We are changed forever.
This event will eventually bring many Americans closer to God.
We will be solidified by our spirituality.
Love and charity will make amazing things happen.
We must take back the soul of the country and control of our future.

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

LazerLoser,

Please accept my sincere apology for forgetting to add the following to the last paragraph. It should have read:

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

Again, please accept my apologies I hate to characterize anyone unfairly, but I believe this sets the records straight about you.

Cheers,

Mr. Man

Neil Young. Funny how a Canadian can critize us. He comes down here, makes is millions and then complains. He is not an American citizen. Get his butt back over the border to Frog land. Like Graham Nash. Comes to America, makes millions, claims he became an American citizen because he loves this country then bashes it. Nash came here because he would be paying 70% of his money in taxes in Britain and it's a socialist country. Nash and Young are out of the circuit because they are has beens and need the publicity to sell their music and make money. Young is not even that good...ever heard him try and play lead guitar?

Think about it....Chili and LazerLou have the same viciousness, decorum and weird since of humor.

I have been looking over these post for 6 days now and I beleive that Wheattrasher and LazerChilli are in cahoots to stir up controversy on this tread. IOW - It's all about traffic hence cash.

Yes. It saddens me also. But, if you pay attention to the three (buffoons) It is plain as day. Visit their websites, read how they interact. We have all been set upon each other like dogs...And, some took it hook line and sinker.

Do not post here or they win.

Hmmm...Neil Young has lived in the USA since the 1970's and he has choosen NOT to become an American citizen because he still values his Canadian citizenship. There is NOTHING wrong with him being proud of his heritage. Do you know why so many people hate Americans and the USA? It is because they preach the song of "the land of the free" and yet they put down anyone who disagrees with war and murder !!! The world is simply tired of it ! To say that Canada breeds terrorists and sends them the USA is stupid ! In Canada we believe that everyone has the right to believe as they wish, even if it is stupid and does not make sense. There are far more Muslims in the US then here in Canada...lol...As for the oil we have...yes, we have the worlds second largest reserve of oil and I wish we would stop giving it to the USA....they have already used all thier own and now they want ours...shame on you america....As for taking over Canada...good luck on that one...Canada has far too many alies that would love to have an excuse to defend Canada against the USA...Russia and China are just some of them !!! It pays to be a country that minds our own business...
