OUR TWO CENTS: Anti-War Day At NYPols

We strive to give everyone's point of view here at NYPols but we also have thoughts of our own and from time-to-time we DO take sides. Today is one of those times.

When it comes to war, we're against it and we say so!

So we'll start today with some free publicity for an anti-war protest being held tomorrow morning in New York City. Click here for details and we hope you'll go.

Next, some free publicity for Neil Young. Not that he needs it. His new song `Let's Impeach the President' was released today. It has a lot to say about the war. His Web site, NeilYoung.com has been crashing all day because of the huge number of people wanting to hear the song and the album. If you're having trouble logging on to the site, the next best thing is the lyrics, which I've copied below.

Let's Impeach the President

Let's impeach the president for lyin'
Misleading our country into WAR
Abusing all the power that we gave him
And shipping all our money out the door

Who's the man who hired all the criminals
The white house shadows who hide behind closed doors
And bend the facts to fit with their new story
Of why we have to send our men to war

Let's impeach the president for spyin'
On citizens inside their own homes
Breaking ev'ry law in the country
By tapping our computers and telephones

What if AL QUAEDA blew up the levees
Would New Orleans have been safer that way?
Sheltered by the government's protection
Or was someone just not home that day?

Let's impeach the president for hijacking
Our religion and using it to get elected
Dividing our country into colors
And still leaving black people neglected

Thank GOD he's crackin' down on steroids
Since he sold his old baseball team
There's lot's of people lookin' at big trouble
But of course the president is clean

Next: A plug for Jonathan Tasini. The anti-war candidate waging a somewhat improbable bid to unseat Sen. Hillary Clinton.

Tasini's camp announced today a "Ride For Peace." On May 11 Tasini will begin a 600-mile bike tour of New York state to call attention to his campaign against Clinton and against the war.

And just for the heck of it, because he's not rolling in campaign dough, here's a re-run of an anti-war campaign ad Tasini posted on his Web site a few weeks back.
new ad (WARNING: Photos are VERY disturbing!)

The war has been taking a back seat in the news lately. We just thought it was time to let it ride shutgun again, at least for today.
