    It is important once we bring our troops home that they know they are victors ...I think William F. Buckley really had it right and really did try to help/warn this current President. On the backside of this war it is extremely important we spend the billions to help heal....those who just came back from a war.


    Worley is a pretty good story teller and songwriter one of my future posts is to dedicate a song to George W. Bush can you guess which song that is???

    I always liked the line, "Freedom's just another word for 'nothing left to lose'," Janice Joplin.

    This song is a rocket on the charts ..popular throughout the country


    'I Just Came Back (from a War),' currently Top 15 and quickly climbing, is striking an emotional chord across the country and garnering national media attention with its message of compassion and understanding. The song was inspired by a Marine that Worley met who was having a difficult time adjusting to life back home after being at battle.



    A call for compassion rings true

    Maybe Darryl Worley should just wear a T-shirt that says “I’m No
    You may understand what I mean if you’ve paid attention lately to the country singer and the press junket he’s been doing to promote his new album with the single “I Just Came Back from a War.”
    In that song, Worley sings about the adjustments some soldiers go through when they return home after deployments to situations such as friends telling them they’ve changed.
    Here are some of the lyrics:
    “I just came back from a place where they hated me and everything I stand for. A land where our brothers are dying for others who don’t even care any more. If I’m not the same little freckle-face boy that grew up in that house next door, I just came back from a war.”
    Quite a difference from Worley’s past anthems like “Have You Forgotten?” which the singer has performed more than once at Fort Bragg.
    So what’s behind the difference?
    Nothing political, Worley recently told NBC’s “The Today Show.”
    “It has absolutely nothing to with politics,” Worley said this month on CMT.
    Whatever, Darryl.
    Yes, yes. You’re a red-blooded country musician concerned with the common man and not the world of Washington, D.C. I get it. Not that I entirely buy it. But whatever.
    I’ll get off the singer’s case now because I actually quite like his new song and strongly agree with the message that Worley insists we listeners should take from it.
    “It’s ... about compassion and us doing our part by being understanding,” Worley said on CMT.
    Well put, Mr. Worley.
    During these holidays, my thoughts are with not only those soldiers spending them far from their families but those spending them at home for the first time in a while.
    One of my neighbors, for instance, recently brought a little lighted tree to a spouse club gathering. That tree (which she bought at a Fayetteville dollar store many years ago) has spent the past three Christmases with her husband in sandy lands. This year, they are all together under one roof.
    I rejoice for her family.
    And I pray for them, too.
    I pray for all of those families whose Christmas dinner tables are set this year not only with the correct number of chairs, but also with some pretty heavy thoughts both expressed and unspoken.
    Our men and women of the military are yet one more reason — and a strong one at that — to keep this season in perspective no matter how challenging that can seem.
    May the holidays be joyous ones for your and your spouses, wherever they may be. And I’ll leave you with a few more lines from that Worley song.
    “The very next morning I took a walk through the neighborhood. I thought it’s been so long since I’ve been in a place where everything is good — people laughing and children playing and as I watched them I found myself praying, ‘Lord, keep them safe here at home in the land of the free.’ ... I hope you cherish this sweet way of life, and I hope you know that it comes with a price.”

    Wow! what a mega-double post ...glade I caught it but as a blessed consolation

    Justice rides with jaundiced eyes, jaded judges bleed the broken bench
    Liberty's a homicide, she been flogged to death with money's monkey wrench
    Desperado apostates set fire to every holy word we've heard
    Silence billows from the burning book and offers prayer without words

    The troops performed (and are performing) magnificently. They won the war. Bush and his clowns let it slip through their fingers, as they were focused on different goals.

    These guys aren't losers any more than Vietnam vets were losers. They won every battle, they put up with impossible missions. It was the politicians running the war that put us in this mess.

    No one should make any mistake about that.

    Song is popular with troops

    Next came Darryl Worley, whose set was highlighted by a tribute to U.S. service men and women, who gathered on stage as he sang.

    bush has forgotten a whole lot...and as impeachment runs its natural course because of deception and its consequences he will probably forget a whole lot more.


    bush has forgotten the troops...bin laden...w.m.d.....fire the leaker!....bush is an ideologue and extremely dysfunctional the nation has been deceived .
