  • Rolling Thunder 2006

    Honour, and steel, winds blow as we ride,
    though those who sent us would rather we hide,
    politics forgotten, we put them aside,
    we come for our comrades, and honour and pride.

    gladly we served, gladly we fought,
    for those who needed us, for those who sought,
    freedom and life, to live in safe port,
    released from terror, and life peril fraught.

    hundreds of thousands, steel voices cry in pain
    hundreds of thousands, steel voices cry in shame
    our children are home? how many remain?
    for those that came home, nothing's the same.

    steel voices raise up, our rallying cry,
    asking the guardians, why? oh why?
    we did not object, we knew we may die,
    but to rest at home, those guardians deny.

    everyone comes home, this we all knew,
    but those given peace, there are so few,
    betrayal and abandonment, if only we knew,
    so we raise steel voices, so you now know too.

    harden our hearts, lest we forget
    those who served, without a regret
    and sit ye at dinner, this day that you set
    a feast of celebration, with friends well met,

    remember the fallen, and those who weep,
    for loved ones still missing, no word not a peep,
    and when this night you lay to sleep,
    think of those, your freedom do keep.

    bring them home, alive or dead,
    do not allow them to languish in dread,
    "everyone comes home", it once was said,
    remember those words, and those whom they led.

    celebrate life, but on memorial day,
    hear our steel voices, as we ride to say,
    our comrades will come home, we pray some day,
    regardless of the price for which we must pay.

    honour the fallen, those who paid the price,
    in deserts or swamps, or yes fields of rice,
    return our children home, why must we ask twice?
    listen we pray, this pleading precise.

    for they are our legacy, those ones who stood tall,
    risking their life, lest freedom would fall,
    raise up your voices, every one and all,
    let "everyone comes home" be your call.
    It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.
    It is by the beans of java the thoughts acquire speed,
    the hands acquire the shaking,
    the shaking becomes a warning.
    It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.

      Ditto.
      Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.

          IMPORTANT letter from Jacqueline House at 6Nations

          "Why Now?"

          Throughout history, the people acting on behalf of the governments of this
          world are a part of 'committing genocide' against our People, out of

          People Over 30 Should Be Dead!! Ha!! Ha!!
          by kitchemanitou
          People over 30 should be dead.

          Here's why ............

          According to today's regulators and bureaucrats, those of us
          who were kids in the 40's, 50's, 60's, or even maybe the early 70's probably shouldn't have survived.

          Our baby cribs were...
