Money, Lies, and Quarantine (Oh my)

Nice to see that someone is thinking along the same lines as we are!

Remember when we were told that Iraq would pay for its self with the selling of its oil? Sill waiting! While the promise was flowers and candy, and the war would pay for itself. The flowers are being placed on the graves of soldiers and Iraqis. It reminds me of a folk/protest song that my cousins use to sing to me. I don't know if you remember the diary I wrote last year called "The Three G's" about the three girls that shaped my political life. The one that I was closest to is now fighting cancer.
But anyway the song that they would sing in three part harmonies was, "Where have all the flowers Gone" I am not sure who wrote it, but the last vers is "Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing, where have all the flowers gone long time ago. Where have all the flowers gone, gone to grave yards everyone, (when will we ever learn-when we ever learn?)" It is also the song I sang my daughter to sleep with. "Rock-n- Roll All Night" just didn't work.
