Ok... I'll bite.

First, I assume you mean 1963, not 1962 - in which case there has been

1: Lyndon B. Johnson
2: Richard Nixon
3: Gerald Ford
4: Jimmy Carter
5: Ronald Reagan
6: George H. W. Bush
7: Bill Clinton
8: Our current mockery.

But, I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume you're going to tell me I'm wrong.

So please do correct me.

So it's ok to insult people only in their absense then?

I suppose if your so tender that you can't take some sarcasm, then you would be the last person to dish it out then. (except when were not around of course...)

Questioning the government is part of what it means to be patriotic. If we didn't ever question the government we would be British. (Here in the US - no offense to the citizens of Britian.)

I would assume since nothing Willie has done or is about has come to mind as patriotic, that patriotism to you would revolve around letting the goverment do what it wishes, or possibly not answering questions people have about 9/11. Please clarify if I am off base.

Thanks,

How about Farm Aid

The American Institute of Philanthropy lists the Farm Aid Charity an A-


Overall Farm Aid performance 1985 to 2005
Total expenditures $28,573,247
Program expenditures $23,053,588 -- or 81% of total expenditures
Farm Aid performance 2005
Total expenditures $1,833,780
Program expenditures $1,543,111 -- or 84% of total expenditures

So Grady that would be close to 30 million bucks for American--- yeah that's right American farmers!

How about biodiesel....What about promoting peace on earth!

Not a single thing to distinguish himself as a patriot.

Sorry Grady but the evidence does not support your statement.

In fact, in all fairness, I think you should apologize!

By the way I was told the thread was moved due to the fact the discussion was becoming heated in a political way.

Well then score one for the thread derailers or possible disinfo artists.

I think this is unfortunate for ATS and its readers to bury an important announcement from a public figure regarding 9/11 and impeachment!

A quick u2u to any of the staff or other longstanding member would have yielded a vouch for Grady's reputation. I am sorry you did that Grady.


I agree with you on this. They demand that Grady come up with proof of degrees, but when people demanded proof when "Jesse MacBeth" was suppose to be posting, they were shouted down with the, "You have to take him at his word" remarks.

I noticed that the people asking for proof come up with any of their degrees, etc. After Grady posted his, he should have had told them to put up or shut their pie-holes.

I asked, but I did say to have a mod verify, not that the degrees were necessary.

It is a common disinformation tactic to start claiming positions and degrees to try and further a point, which, a mod verification is the best way.

I don't care when the sign up date is, that does not take away the fact that someone can be misleading.


There has also been a pattern of people saying things in a third person, then some following poster taking that and twisting it to try and sound like a personal attack was made, when clearly it wasn't.


There are plenty of threads that deal with picking out when someone being misleading and be cautious of it.

The fact is, Willie Nelson is a Patriot. His country music, that is right U.S. country music, one of the most popular, award winning, and best selling artists in his field ... which anyone would admit are quite proud of their country.

He has done more for this country with his activism and intentions.

He helped establish Farm Aid, not just play in it. So he is one of the people that directly made it happen. He involves himself in other charity work. He also gives all his proceeds of a Ben & Jerry's flavor to Farm Aid.

He is a partner with a Bio-Diesel company. Something our country seriously needs for national security to lessen our dependence on foreign oil.

He headlined a concert to benefit the Tsunami victims.

He is a supporter of Peace, with his own research institute, a trustee of a peace museum, on the board of directors for the animal welfare institue.



I think this man is a proud representative of the American Spirit. He is not senile, he is not crazy ... he is honest, straightfoward, and a TRUE PATRIOT.

Also, don't let propaganda of his personal lifestyle choices influence your opinion of someone ... not all people who drink are wife-beating alcoholics right? So don't lump other social driven activities into some bull# line of mess that isn't true at all. Maybe if people knew someone or from experience, they could form an honest opinion, instead they listen to whatever drivel the 'never deceitful' government and its organizations spill, since they never have an agenda, such as hiding the truth of our past.


Do you consider people who have served in the armed forces Patriotic?

Willie Nelson served in the Air Force.


Take some time to get to know Willie:

Willie's site links

Willie Nelson Peace Research Institute

Country Music Hall of Fame

BioWillie Fuel



There are more, but do some work for yourself.

It seems this thread has gotten in the middle of some long standing problem with members.

I don't recall anyone demanding his credentials. In any case I wouldn't care if he were Sigmund Freakin Freud I still disagree with his take. Is that OK can I disagree with Grady??

Personally I have found revered member Grady to be rude. His first post insulted the subject of this thread in no uncertain terms. But hey I don't mind I can take a "robust" debate. When you deal in 9/11 it is to be expected. But the whining and not so subtle appeals to Mods to rescue the oldtimer from the disrespectful youngins I mean cmon.

Here you go. This is the post were FreeThinkerIdealist was asking for proof:

Let's see a scan of these degrees and accomplishments. I can say I'm an astronaut, doesn't make it so.

Remember, you can blur out your real name for security reasons, you can have a mod or amigo verify you are who you say you are.


Several post later, FTI then said thanks for posting them, which I felt was cool.

Well, Nelson is funny that is for sure, the only thing missing is him sitting on a porch in a rocking chair toking out, while making these speeches of his.

Willy Nelson is probably one of the few people in our country(in a role of power) most similar to our forefathers. Did the forefathers say to themselves, we might loose our land and our lives? yes. Did willy say to himself I may loose a couple fans and some money? Of course he did. Here's a man that cares about people and ideas more than money. Do you think he cares about hurting his image as viewed from mindless nationalists? No.

On a side note,
to anyone who uses Willy's personal marijuana use to make a case that he can't think clearly, that his brain is fried or that his opinion doesn't matter.

I salute you Willie

you no longer care about your career or what happens to you.

you are worth more than 1000 elitists or their minions (and there seem to be plenty in here)

A short list of "Actual Patriots"

Willie
Rosie
Tom DeLonge (Blink 182)
sean Penn
jesi ventura
James Brolen
Martin Sheen
Susan saradon

and many more.

only because they "Actually" care much much more about life and love
and the state of our world than they do about their careers.

GradyPhilpott
I`m not goin to insult you.

none of us should feel ashamed for being so badly brainwashed
by the Elite.

the people that are arguing with you were also fully brainwashed at one time too.
(me included)

5 years ago I would have laughed at these people (Willie)

But now, I , like so many others from ALL WALKS OF LIFE
are seeing through the lies.

I know its a lot to deal with but willie and the rest of them are right.

and frankly we are all scared as heck.

how could we let this all happen?

Why is Bush not investigating his Impeachment to the White House and to arrange his Pension Fund which will pay for his Mansion built in Mexico.

Cheney will escapte to Dubai, Rummsteak will escape to Cuba, Wolfie will escape to Israel and finally the Neocons have purchased the island of Tasmania from Australia where the Taxpayers loot is hidden, thanks to the Fifth-Colum, Greenspan, the expert in Cooking Books

It's great Willie is speaking up, but weren't those bums in Congress supposed to throw the bums out of The White House back in '06? Wasn't that the incentive for putting Dems. in charge of Congress?

I sent my Congressmen letters about it thru the last year and got replies, off topic, concerning Iraq and Iran. No time to read this article now, but if he didn't say it, we need to THROW ALL THE BUMS OUT!!

When you vote in Nov. (if we get there), be sure to vote for anyone you can who is NOT a Dem. nor Rep. -- I don't even care if someone is with the Nazi Party... anyone is better than a Dem. or Rep. -- that should be painfully obvious to everyone by now.

GAH!!!!!! I am absolutely disgusted with this country and it's citizens (including myself .

We sit here with the evidence that Bush/Cheney/etc.. have violated their Presidential oathes, but we do NOTHING!

It's like a detective sitting on his ass doing nothing when he knows a serial killer is on the loose. He knows there is evil on the loose, but he doesn't have the will power to do anything to stop it.

It is absolutely disgusting.

you know what is hilarious about celebrities? Americans hold them on a higher platform than elected officials. It must say something pretty bad about the american public at large. You elect an official and slander him, but allow a pot smoking, law breaking, rebel who can't even sing very well, to steer your ideologies.

You know what is hilarious about your post? You don't know what you are talking about and slandering the American public at large is not a way to convince anyone on the point you are trying to make.

Willie is a member of the American public at large, besides being a celebrity and he has the right to express himself as well as any taxpaying citizen of this country. People have the right to reject Willie or accept his views. I think your ideologies have been steered by the authority figures you seem to worship.

Is it possible that some of the American public is just sick and tired of the lies and corruption and that Willie is just one of them? And in the grand scheme of things, has no more influence than anyone else. I can assure you Anon. Most Americans are capable of thinking for themselves. There may be ideological differences, but don't sell the American public short. Where are you from anyway?

How many records do you have out? I'd like to hear them!!

Criticism from an anonymous is a chicken**** way to go. Sign up!!

North American Union is treason, and we need to en-mass perform citizens arrests immediately on our politicians after giving them 1 week to back off and release all their documents to the people immediately. We will peruse the documents and consider signatures admission of guilt to anything we decide is treason.
