We are so lucky that Davey D

We are so lucky that Davey D is on KPFA, on this still independent station where we can hear shows like the one today. Deepest appreciation for this hard important work.
Heard the last part of Hard Knock Radio Monday 4pm kpfa 94.1fm. Moving accounts by veterans of their recent experiences, including contrasting the over $100,000 yearly paid to private military contractors they met in the Middle East while they and their friends did much more dangerous and harder work for $15,000 - $20,000 in the U.S. military. Then with no jobs coming out, how so many felt compelled to take these contractor jobs, sometimes working only 4 hours a day for this taxpayer shell-out. top it with Gil Scott-Heron's "work for peace" :Peace is not the absence of war,
it is the absence of the rules of war and the threats of war and the preparation for war.
Peace is not the absence of war,
it is the time when we will all bring ourselves closer to each other,
closer to building a structure that is unique within ourselves
because we have finally come to Peace within ourselves.
The Military and the Monetary,
The Military and the Monetary,
The Military and the Monetary.
Get together whenever they think its necessary,
they've turned our brothers and sisters into mercenaries,
they are turning parts of the planet, into a cemetery.
