I was just over at Blondie's blog reading her post for today. It's a good one so if you haven't had a chance to read it yet, please take the time to go over and give it a look.
One thing Blondie and I were talking about is how so many of the recording artist of the 60s and 70s seem to have hit the nail on the head about our environment going downhill. Back then they were called "Radicals" and "Trouble makers"...today they would be called "visionaries" and "Green Living Advocates".
I guess that every generation has their share of visionaries, I just wish that ours were not so hard to spot. I wish that more of us could learn to heed the warnings from people that see what's coming, but we all know that is NOT going to happen!
It would be nice if just once we could elect someone that really cared about alternative energy, all the damage done by profiteers, reducing our dependency on other countries for some basic needs, and in general wanted to help promote old fashioned values again.
However, as long as there is so much profit in war and in the continued destruction and rape of Mother Earth...most of the politicians will only be interested in three values. Those of greed, power, and profit! That, my friend, is a damn shame!
Now let's go get some coffee...
