Thread Name: Us and Them: folk music and political persuasion
Subject: RE: Us and Them: folk music and political persuasi
With all due respect to Jerry, what a pile of sentimentalised old poppycock! Yes, I'll happily sit down and play a few folk songs with a conservative if they share my musical tastes. But when it comes to the truly important issues in life - like when they want to decimated my health service or cut the funding to educate my kids or spend my taxes on building up an even bigger stockpile of guns and bombs or ostracise and exclude my gay friends- I'll fight the buggers tooth and nail all the way.

Some things are more important that friggin' folk music
