.......... .. .. ........... "Once In A While You Get Shown The Light In The Strangest Of Places If You Look At It Right" :Robert Hunter

All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

Veterans Day

Well today is Veterans Day. I just want to say thanks to those who have served our country. The United States is a fortunate county with freedoms that many places don't have. Sometimes to maintain freedom we have to fight those who want to take it from us and others. When this happens there is great cost to the ones who serve and the ones who love the ones who serve. So thanks to all that have paid these prices that are so great. I do not always agree with the leaders on when they choose to use military force. But that does not diminish the respect I have for those who serve. Sometimes our counties leaders send our boys into harms way for intentions that do not appear to be what they tell us. Sometimes they do it with poor judgment and unrealistic expectations of the outcome. But again that does not diminish the respect I have for the ones who serve with loyalty to this country.

John Fogerty said "Some folks were born, made to wave the flag, oh that red white and blue. But when the band plays Hail To The Chief, oh they are pointing the cannon at you. It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no senators son. It ain't me I ain't me, I ain't no fortunate one. Some folks inherit Star Spangled Eyes, Oh they sent you down to war. But when you ask them how much should we give, their only answer is more, more, more. It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no military son, It ain't me, It ain't me I ain't no I ain't no fortunate one." Well John you have been pretty fortunate to have had the freedom to express yourself and make a living doing it. I feel we are all fortunate to live in this county that has been blessed for so long.

So why have we been blessed?

In Genesis 10 Noah says "May God enlarge Japheth and may he dwell in the tents (dwell in the ways of) of Shem". Who are the descendants of Japheth? Javan=Greeks, Gomer=Germany, Tiras=Italy. So the Europeans will be blessed or "enlarged" if they follow the ways of Shem. Shem are the people who became the nation of Israel. So when the Europeans started following the ways of the Messiah that came out of the descendants of Shem they rose in power and blessings and they became the most blessed people of the planet. And those Europeans are us the United States of America. Founded on principals of law found in the bible. With the words "In God We Trust" on our currency. With the idea that God gives us our rights. And as we fall away from these ideas our blessing or "enlargement" has diminished just as the Europeans have.

Anyway. Thanks to those who have sacrificed and protected my freedom to express my views and worship in the way that I choose. And may all the men and women who are serving today come home safely and soon.


  1. I've haven't read such a pile of horse-shit in a long time. Did you get your education from watching the 700 Club?

  2. Thanks for your opinion. It is so well thought out and as usual my detractors use so much factual evidence. And no I don't watch 700 club. I went to California State University of Long Beach. But school education does not make you smart or wise. So which part is the "HS"? The fact that we should thank veterans? The fact that I have freedom in this country to express my view point? No probably anything to do with. . . . oh no.. .not that, anything but Jesus or the Bible. 1Corinthians 2:14 says this "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are only spiritually discerned." What a surprise that you feel it is foolishness. It just reasures me, thanks. AZ Jones
