Mr. Young, Maybe there is a need for you to look at the bigger picture. Seems to me God has a much more important work to achieve through this war in Iraq than you or I or even President Bush can concieve. Let's leave the really important stuff to someone who knows what they are talking about! Yours Truly, a former fan who has grown up spiritually.

I had every album Mr. Young ever put out. Now that he had to go and open his mouth about something that he knows so little about, is the wrong thing to do. When people start forgetting 9/11/2001 you start getting IDIOTS like this. If people with money and as big a stage as this would put their achievements to better use the world would be better off. I have burned every one of his albums and will never support him again. Mr. Young should stand up and be counted as a real AMERICAN.
Voice your opinion against the ILLEGAL INVASION from our southern border

Hmm. Haha. I agree with anonymous #1 and muthead. God wanted a war in Iraq?

Well, as Neil said, "everyone is entitled to their opinion." But one question for you naysayers and bashers...ever heard of Farm Aid? The man cares about the country and the world, that's why he's speaking out. I myself like my artists from the non-drone genre.

Keep on rockin' in the free world...

It's like Neil comes to our house for dinner and complains about the food. Neil, move back to the great Socialist state north of the boarder if you don't like it here. I would love too see his Tax returns -- I'll bet our VP has given more to charity than Mr.Young over their respective life times. Any takers?

Dave, I would like to see your dumbass friend (NY) try rockin in the Islamo Fascist world. He'd have his head on a platter quicker than he could say "But...I from Canada". Hmmmm, then again, so would a lot of people. On second thought, please, Neil move to Iran. Hangout with Cat Stevens smoke a bowl, talk shit about the west and how bad the US is, but please just go. I’ll buy you a one-way ticket.

BTW - For all you who will bash and smirk at my comments: "I am just speaking my conscience". I want Neil audited, stripped searched, brought up on drug charges and deported. Preferably to Iran with Uncle Sam tattooed on his ASS. IOW across his forehead.

Just go Neil....Jus go.

He's from the north
Has never sat on a Southern man's porch

We'll have to deal with the froth and the bait
as we wait
for his debate

But hither and thither;
is no reason
We sit here wondering aloud
Is it Treason?

Oh poor Neil stuck in the 60's
Oh poor Neil at 60
Looking for one last hurrah
To hang his hat on from a far

Tisk, tisk Mr. Can man from the north
Wish we could wisk you…
Dis you…

But, alas I have no stage
No lackeys too page
No cash or Asses too burn
I have to work for a livin and earn
listin to your dis’in about my girl
Almost causes me to hurl.

God Bless my girl!

Tisk, tisk Mr. Can man from the north.
You feel the sands of time ebbin away?
Wishin for one last day?

You are not Peter Pan man.
Not James Kirk.
Not even close to Kurt.

So stop wishin and dis'in for;
You will always be stuck in a rut
Wishin for the 60’s at 60

An American Man don’t need Neil Young.

for those of you who cite god as evidence for the iraq invasion, read these lyrics and listen to this song. And realise how ridiculous your justification is:

Oh my name it is nothin'
My age it means less
The country I come from
Is called the Midwest
I's taught and brought up there
The laws to abide
And that land that I live in
Has God on its side.

Oh the history books tell it
They tell it so well
The cavalries charged
The Indians fell
The cavalries charged
The Indians died
Oh the country was young
With God on its side.

Oh the Spanish-American
War had its day
And the Civil War too
Was soon laid away
And the names of the heroes
I's made to memorize
With guns in their hands
And God on their side.

Oh the First World War, boys
It closed out its fate
The reason for fighting
I never got straight
But I learned to accept it
Accept it with pride
For you don't count the dead
When God's on your side.

When the Second World War
Came to an end
We forgave the Germans
And we were friends
Though they murdered six million
In the ovens they fried
The Germans now too
Have God on their side.

I've learned to hate Russians
All through my whole life
If another war starts
It's them we must fight
To hate them and fear them
To run and to hide
And accept it all bravely
With God on my side.

But now we got weapons
Of the chemical dust
If fire them we're forced to
Then fire them we must
One push of the button
And a shot the world wide
And you never ask questions
When God's on your side.

In a many dark hour
I've been thinkin' about this
That Jesus Christ
Was betrayed by a kiss
But I can't think for you
You'll have to decide
Whether Judas Iscariot
Had God on his side.

So now as I'm leavin'
I'm weary as Hell
The confusion I'm feelin'
Ain't no tongue can tell
The words fill my head
And fall to the floor
If God's on our side
He'll stop the next war.

Blah, Blah Blah....Yes we all hate war. Does Neil think he has a monoply on these issues? Just sorry he can't seem to distinguish the black hats from the white hats.

If you think that this or any war of the last 100 years has been about maintaining our freedom, you are sorely mistaken.

Open your eyes.

You can't really claim to be a true Neil Young fan if you get angry with him because he uses his talents as his forum to communicate his feelings. His feelings generally match ours, which is why we identify with and like him, but not always. Which is also why we should like him and respect him. The fact that you so blindly follow your leaders, even when it's obvious they are wrong, lends credence that you too are "flip-floppers" by saying you USED to love Neil Young and now you don't. Whether you believe the man speaks the truth or not, he speaks (sings) knowing that not all will agree. If this were some lame-ass attempt to make money, which I've never heard anyone that supposedly loves and knows Neil say, then they really don't know Neil. I imagine he makes the music that comes to his head and doesn't really give a rats ass if you think it's crap or not. In fact, sometimes after awhile he thinks it's crap too I imagine.

I imagine most people wanted to support their country and president and struggled with the decision to go to war. Felt forced into by the actions of fanatical muslims, but when does it stop? When do we go to far? We rightly go after the terrorists in Afganistan and yet we don't stop there. Now we're in a mess in Iraq with no seemingly way out and Iran scared we are going after them next and threatening the world. Do we have to go through this for another 10 years, waiting for enough people to die and students to protest and presidents to change to end this thing? Even today most conservatives I know, don't say Vietnam was a mistake, they say it was a mistake that we didn't fight to win. That mentality still exists with this war and after enough of our soldiers are brought back in body bags finally somebody will take notice and try and stop it. Then we'll fight each other. Who's right, who's wrong?
I'd rather be happy than right.

A nonymous.......
"Jesus don't like killin' no matter what the reason for.." (John Prine)

Neil is right, no good comes out of war. To many ( some of my friends sons included) of our mboys, men and woman are getting killed over there. Bush had told us nothing but lies!
