Mother, mother
There’s too many of you crying
Brother, brother, brother
There’s far too many of you dying
You know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some lovin’ here today

Last night the President announced an escalation of troops to Iraq. Last night the President mentioned the need to possibly drag Iran and Sryia into this war. Last night the President said more need to die for this usless war.

Father, father
We don’t need to escalate
You see, war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
You know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some lovin’ here today

This morning that escalation began by storming the Iranian embasy in Iraq. A second carrier group has been dispatched to the Persian Gulf. A Navy Admrial has been put in charge of a two front “war on terror” with two virtually landlocked countries (Afganistan totally land locked, Iraq has a small port on the Persian Gulf).

Picket lines and picket signs
Don’t punish me with brutality
Talk to me, so you can see
Oh, what’s going on
What’s going on
Ya, what’s going on
Ah, what’s going on

This President has reserved the right to REMOVE habeas corpus. This President has said he has the right to listen to our phone calls, check our email and go through our mail.

Father, father, everybody thinks we’re wrong
Oh, but who are they to judge us
Simply because our hair is long
Oh, you know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today

This President refuses to listen to the generals on the ground who have said more troops will not work. This President refuses to listen to the Iraq Study Group and instead of talking to Iran and Syria he has decided to confront them with force. This President has begun airstrikes in Somalia with out the knowledge or approval from congress and after discovering there is oil there.

Picket lines and picket signs
Don’t punish me with brutality
Talk to me
So you can see
What’s going on
Ya, what’s going on
Tell me what’s going on
I’ll tell you what’s going on – Uh
Right on baby
Right on baby

Those of us how believe this war is wrong have a duty to send our thought to our member of congress. Tell them to fight this man with all they have. He has no right to do these actions without the approval of the people. He is our employee and must be reminded of that.
