    Blind Guardian just released a new album (lyrics).

    At first glance, it looks rad-trad. I haven’t had a chance to read the lyrics carefully yet though. Apparently there’s story material included with the physical album. That might be key to deciphering some of the meaning. I do own the album, but I own the digital version.

    So far as the musical value, the songs are pretty good; but the lyrics are what look so promising, at first glance.

    “Ghost of War” is a good song.

    The best line is probably that kings and their children don’t fight the wars. And the mention that profit is made from the wars is also good. More depth could have been added, but it’s a good song. I suppose keeping the message simple and targeted (to have wide appeal) could make it more influential.

    I hope some American children, when considering enlistment, hear this first. I see calls to “stop ISIS” everywhere, rarely by people who have ever or will ever fight in a war. Maneuvering so that others, “fellow Americans”, are sent to fight another’s wrong is wrong. I’m no fan of ISIS ofc, but I don’t like seeing American children sent off to die either.

    I know that most former Presidents rarely have much to say after the swearing in of their replacement, but I find it odd that “Dubya” has virtually become a hermit in the last six years? After all, his “Poppy” and “Slick Willy” have become so close that Bill Clinton seems to be Dubya’s new adopted brother. (Could it be that they all had the same true employer?) I think so. But I also believe that there are at least two other reasons Dubya has been muzzled.

    1. He is too stupid to speak without a handler.
    2. In one of his few interviews he stated, “Sometimes money trumps peace.”

    Not what the NWO want’s to hear a former POTUS say.

      I expect Dubya is hurt that he’s not popularly loved. It seems he was misled about Iraq, and he doesn’t like being associated with conservatives, since he was not a conservative president.

      Dubya was a spoiled frat boy and cheerleader. Foreign policy defined his presidency, and his foreign policy, like Obama’s, was a complete disaster.

      Immigration was of course more important than foreign policy, but Americans are still asleep to what mass immigration truly means for them (poverty, corruption, adapting to a new political culture).

    I actually enjoyed the “Grammys” this year, for the first time in a long time. It almost seemed like a return to Voice & Music vs the last twenty years of “Theatrics, Shock & Awe”. Madonna was a reminder of the past years of symbolism, debauchery, egalitarianism, and poor tastes. Annie Lenox was wonderful, as she simply stepped to the mic (In clothes befitting her age) and proved that real talent lives on.

    Kanye West’s second childish outburst actually showed the frustration of African/American artists, losing out to very talented White, British, artists reclaiming their rightful place amongst the Arts. In reality, intitlement can not outlast true gifted talent. Regarding Government, I like this very short documentary that I just noticed:

    “The Lie We Live”.

      I’ve never watched the Grammys, don’t even know the differences among the various award organisations; but I did catch a news article on a black artist’s protest of Beck’s (white) winning an award over Beyonce (black). Beck of course praised the protesting artist. I half expect Beck will actually give his award to Beyonce.
