'Years ago they taught us 'Give me liberty or death' But nowadays they say We need less freedom More security...' -- from the song 'Old as Dirt Grandpa with a Guitar' This CD was released to mark the 25th anniversary of my military service on a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier during the 1979 'Iraninan Hostage Crisis.' That's when I was first introduced to the geo-politics of petroleum. Dead-on tracks like Old As Dirt Grandpa with a Guitar, Walk for Peace and Every Woman Mary make this CD just as if not more powerful now than when it was first released in 2004. From the Homeland Security liner notes: 'Hajb the Mad Poet says that one man's ideology is another man's bigotry. So perhaps instead of spreading so much ideology around the globe, it might be better to fill our local ideological practices with so much love that everyone who encounters them finds blessings instead of oppression.'
