Don't hate the media, become the media
For every prohibition you create you also create an underground.
I don't think either the Offspring or Green Day started their bands with the intention of becoming so enormously popular; that sort of fell in their laps-especially the Offspring. My attitude is if somebody blunders into the level of popularity, at least remember the human factor. These guys are still human beings and hopefully still have hearts and if you keep in touch with them rather than vilify them you may be able to encourage them to go in the right direction. What I'm hoping will eventually happen is that they will grasp the amount of power and financial clout that is now at their fingertips and use those as tools to help real people with real things the way punk politics was always designed to do before, but nobody had any money.

I'm down with both direct action and electoral action. We need both.
If you love god, burn a church
My goal is not replacinga corporate Rebulican with a corporate Democrat and then calling it a day. We did that last time with Bill Clinton, and then look what we got.

The United States has been declared under martial law...All constitutional rights have been suspended. Anyone interfering with the collection of urine samples will be shot. Anyone failing to attend morning school prayer will be shot. The number one enemy of progress is questions. National security is more important than individual rights. Sports broadcasts will proceed as scheduled. Shut up, be happy, obey all orders without question. At last everything is done for you.
America and AmericansConstitution
This is my home. Home is where the disease is. As long as I stay in America, I'll never run out of subjects for songs.
Voters are starting to get together to keep Wal-Marts out of their town so that their economies don't get wrecked. The local elections are where you handle rent control, living wages and medical marijuana laws. Few people vote in local elections, but if more people like us vote, we have a far better chance at getting cool people and cool propositions passed. If you don't show up, you can bet your sweet ass that the Bush gang and the Christian coalition will.
We have to wipe out Bushism itself, before it wipes us out. That means showing up and voting smart in every election, big and small. I think that in many ways that, the local elections are even more important than the national elections. It's the mayors and the city councils and county comissioners and the school boards and the legislators that decide how to spend the money they fleece off of us in taxes.
Yes, I think it's a freedom of expression issue. My feeling is the best way to counter bad speech is with more speech.
