This Land is Your Land

Last edited Sun May 21, 2017, 11:57 AM - Edit history (1)



Never forget that. Your land, our land, this land was made for you and me. It was made for us all.

Don't let anyone take that from you or from me. It is ours, all of ours.

RESIST. PERSIST. EXIST.

5. Excellent...excellent post...

I often find myself listening to Woody when I'm dealing with tough issues. Sometimes it feels like he's speaking from the grave. I think that speaks to the applicability of his message and how some things haven't changed.

3. "This Machine Kills Fascists"....

Woody Guthrie slapped that on his guitar and he meant it and lived it. History certainly does rhyme at times. The fascists are back, but our voices and our music and our protest will bury them again, if we are willing to fight for our principles.

9. Some songs make my heart pound with pride and bring a tear to my eyes.

And almost all are patriotic songs. Like the National Anthem, America The Beautiful, and This Land are three that come quickly to mind.

13. Obviously he's never tried to take a shortcut through 'our' land.

 

Be not deceived -- not one square millimeter of this planet is planned 'for us'. It's to be the Universe's biggest Disneyland and we're not invited.

In fact, I'm relatively sure we'll be disinvited.

Likely by force.
