I was able to see his son perform while living in Massachusetts, and he also was one I admire. Woody, you could be singing about the same things today I'm afraid. Your words have become legend, a true folk hero.

Not much has changed since those days. The dustbowl of his era showed how the Southern and Midwestern banks were deliberatly bankrupted by bailout denial by the 13 Federal banks back east. This was payback for them not suporting the adoption of central banking.
We're in the middle of a depression and there doesn't appear to be any hope in sight. The crash hasn't come yet but when it does it will be the rich who will hold out until the nations have been exhausted; followed by another global conflict. Most of us will still be poor.
The cost of living is through the roof and only the Banksters and the Corporatists are getting rich. Even the union brass are guilty of making pork barrel deals with the politicos and living off the labor of the workers. We are unlike Woody's days though several steps closer to a central world government.

Sheryl, you were lucky to catch Arlo while he was alive! ;-) Woody was terrific but ti took us many decades to realize what a teasure we had. I hope Pete Seeger is now recognized as another truly great American. These are two of our largest national treasures and what does Obama do? tries to honor the traitor jane Fonda.
