50 Phil Ochs Fans Can’t Be Wrong!

Pre>e
I found him by the stage last night
D a
He was breathing his last breath
E
A bottle of wine and a cigarette
D a
Was all that he had left

I can see you make the music
D e
’cause you carry a guitar
A
God help the troubadour
F#m g
Who tries to be a star

G# a g a
So play the chords of love, my friend
G a
Play the chords of pain
D a
If you want to keep your song,
E a g a
Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t play the chords of fame

I seen my share of hustlers
As they try to take the world
When they find their melody
They’re surrounded by the girls
But it all fades so quickly
Like a sunny summer day
Reporters ask you questions
They write down what you say

(chorus)

They’ll rob you of your innocence
They will put you up for sale
The more that you will find success
The more that you will fail
I been around, I’ve had my share
And I really can’t complain
But I wonder who I left behind
The other side of fame

(chorus)

Commonly regarded as the best song Phil Ochs ever wrote, “Crucifixion” was the closing track of OchsPleasures of the Harbor record. Frequently cited as an allusion to the life and death of J.F.K., legend has it that when Ochs performed the song for Robert Kennedy, the democratic candidate was reduced to tears.

    A new wave of excitement has gripped Kogelo village in Siaya District as relatives of the US President-elect Barack Obama prepare to fly to America for his historic inauguration as America’s 44th President.

    Kogelo is alive once more, two months after the exhilaration that greeted his election as America’s first black president and the just concluded Christmas and New Year festivities.

    The President-elect’s grandmother, Sarah Obama, is set to lead the delegation to US and was in Nairobi just before Christmas. Sources say the US embassy has already given her a travel visa.

    Initial reports that Prime Minister Raila Odinga, Obama’s cousin, would lead the Kenyan delegation were refuted by an official in the PM’s office. He said Raila would travel to the US in February.

    The Standard On Saturday learnt that the team comprising the president–elect’s relatives in Kenya will travel 10 days before the historic ceremony on 20th this month. Reports that Obama had personally paid for the airfare could not be confirmed.

    The president-elect’s half-brother, Malik, said yesterday he would be part of the team that will jet to the US. “Of course I will be there but I will give you more details later,” he said from Siaya town. Malik said the Obama family in Kenya is eager to see him being installed as the most powerful man in the world.

    Besides the Obama family, several other prominent personalities, including musicians and politicians, from Nyanza Province were preparing to travel to Washington DC for the big occasion.

    Most of those travelling are believed to have received invitation as well as sponsorship from friends living in the US or institutions in that country.

  30. Katie Says:

    In my best Joe Biden impression, “Mark my words…” I predict…that Burris will be quietly sworn in before Thursday so as to avoid his testimony. We can’t be testifying about such silly things as citizen status in those great halls of DC.

    “Senator-designate Roland Burris has been asked to testify on Thursday before the Illinois House impeachment committee about the circumstances surrounding his appointment by Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Senate Democrats turned Burris away at the doors to the world’s most exclusive club on the ground that his appointment had not been signed by Secretary of State Jesse White, the mere ministerial act his office performs in the appointment process. In advance of his planned testimony on Thursday, Burris furnished the impeachment committee an affidavit. In that affidavit, Burris states that he is at least 30 years of age and “a natural born citizen of the United States.” Article I of the U.S. Constitution requires a senator to be at least 30 years of age and “a citizen” of the United States for at least nine years. The “natural born citizen” requirement is only found in Article II of the U.S. Constitution establishing the qualifications for president of the United States. One can’t help but wonder if Burris’ “natural born citizen” status mentioned in his affidavit is a pointed barb at President-elect Obama, whose status has been called into question in more than a dozen lawsuits and who has withheld support for Burris’ appointment.”

    Good night all!

  60. Tenacity Says:

    Hfan,
    Orly was seeking a piece of information and wanted to collaborate with Linda Starr. She asked for a number night before last, but someone finally posted her request on the blog at ObamaCrimes. No big deal. I didn’t understand why Taitz didn’t post the request herself.

  62. j.b. Says:

    Oh and homework, too!

    Ten, Orly did post the request on her web site-it was just being dragged around for “helping” purposes, I think.

  63. j.b. Says:

    This is from the link I posted above!

    To: JosephW
    .
    Ed Hale has turned it all over to Lawyer Steve Pidgeon and lawyer Dr. Orly to handle it all
    All Hale is doing is trying to raise money to help them with their expenses.
    Dr. Orly says she has documents to prove Obama as Barry Soerento applied and receive foreign student aid or so I heard on plainsradio tonight.
    If so, this would verify that he was not a natural born citizen..

  65. Tenacity Says:

    j.b.
    Orly posting on her own site assumes that Starr would either visit her site or that someone else would pass the message on. The message was eventually passed on but took a day and half. Orly should have posted a message either on Linda’s blog or on the blog at ObamaCrimes which Linda has been moderating. Seems silly to me, but hey.

    Just a common sense note on the NBC issue even if O was born here. NBC is reserved for those who were born of two american citizens, we can grasp that through simple logic.

    At the time, the british were the enemy of America. To think that the framers were to allow in the constitution, a child that was born of an american mother AND A BRITISH FATHER WHO ISNT EVEN A CITIZEN IS JUST PLAIN BAT SHIT CRAZY!!!!

    I am trying to put Georgia and Iran events in context of oil/gas.

    The map is the most interesting part of this article. Iran’s natural gas reserves are second only to Russia. Look at the map and trace the only gas pipeline path to Europe from a non-Russian gas source, that does not go through Russia.

    Turkmenistan has 2.86 trillion cubic metres of proven natural gas reserves. The #1 is spot is help by Russia at 47.65 tln cubic meters and #2 is Iran which has 28. Iran sits right below Turkmenistan. Could Georgia and Turkmenistan soon become household words in Europe? Will the US have to do their dirty work for them again?
