I said this, in the post immediately below...
It’s a personal thing for me. I will not ever, ever spend my money to directly or indirectly support views I hold to be reprehensible. And that goes for Neil Young, too.
Well... in my defense... I haven't bought any of Neil's stuff in about ten years or so. But that doesn't mean I've trashed all his stuff I bought in the wayback.. Oh, Hell no! Further... there was once a time when Neil and I were on the same page, politically. And therein lies the difference: I grew up, he didn't. So, with all that in mind... there's this, which still has a place in my heart o' hearts:
One more thang and then we'll go. Churchill supposedly said sumthin' to this effect:
Show me a young Conservative and I'll show you someone with no heart. Show me an old Liberal and I'll show you someone with no brains. - Winston Churchill
Just a brief, brief comment in this space. The Second Mrs. Pennington had a lot o' influence in my conversion from moonbat to sensible conservative. That's sorta interesting, in that the girl was but 19 years of age when we met and of a sort that used to be described as a "good Catholic girl," with ALL that term implies. She remained so for as long as we were together, which was about 23 years or so. And then the strangest thang happened, as exemplified by this exchange:
She: I'm VERY liberal.Well, now. What was that Winston said about "no brains?" If the shoe fits...
Me: I know. What I don't understand is how a good conservative girl like you could go so wrong, so quickly.
She: I used to follow directions well; I don't any longer.
Me: What does that mean?
She: (Standing up abruptly... and departing, leaving me with my mouth hanging open) I shared too much and I don't want or need YOU to tell ME about me.
