I know many who protested the war in the 60's, including me. Never, EVER........not once......did I or anyone I know spit on or insult our troops returning home. My heart went out to them because many of those who served and spent time in Vietnam sure as hell didn't want to be there. All 'liberals' shouldn't be defined as if they were one person. My political leanings have changed since my teen years. I am not the same person I was 45 years ago. Who is? I was very anti-gun for most of my life and look at me now. Proud owner of 5 firearms, avid shooter, and loving every minute of throwing lead down range. I STILL hate the Vietnam war......oops, conflict. And I still have a very special place in my heart for the Vietnam veterans. And I've been to The Wall in D.C. and I cried. And I took a rubbing of the soldier who's name is on my POW/MIA bracelet. And I cried when I saw who were obviously Vietnam Veterans there at The Wall.

Pete Seeger caused no harm to this country. His politics may not have been the same as anyone else's here. But what damage did he do? Who did he hurt? You can't lump him in with Jane Fonda. She is the only one responsible for her actions. Maybe they were both liberals. Maybe they were both Pacifists, but you can't blame one person for another's actions. That's like saying all gun owners are macho *******s who want to feel like big men because they carry guns. There certainly are some like that but would you like to be lumped in with those idiots?

This post is waaay more political than I have ever been on this forum. And I could tell you I doubt I will ever be this open again. Because I know I'm going to get my ass kicked and I know I'm going to be put on many members '**** list' but the interesting thing is, those who do that may very well have liked me up until this post. And what's even more interesting is, I'm still the same person I was BEFORE you read this post about my feelings about the 60's and the how I felt about the Vietnam war. I have never been disrespectful to any veteran because I know they have done a job I would never be mentally strong enough to do. God bless them all.

don't even pay any attention to these folks, F em and I'm sure there have been many driven away by bold folks posting things when they are drunk or what not

Amen even though his music was a bit mellow for me. I prefer MC5 for my revolution music.

I saw him in concert in the 80's. I sang every song right along with him, as did most of the audience.

Hey, Winds. Did you know that Ronald Regan had to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee? So did Walt Disney. Stinkin' Commies!

I hope you reconsider. Your posts elevate this forum. If you want to be liked by all, turn into a $100 bill.

P.S. I can't stand Bob Dylan.
