Megadeth’s music has long been referred to as “A Thinking Man’s Metal.”p>I heard Megadeth for the first time in ‘91. On Saturday afternoons the owner of a little local FM station turned the programming over to his ditzy teenaged daughters. Fortunately for me the girls were metalheads, and when they played tracks from Countdown To Extinction, I remember stopping what I was doing, turning up the volume and thinking, “hey, this is really good!” Thank you Shawn, for the piece on Dave Mustaine and his politically astute music. I’ll be sure to buy the United Abominations CD next time I’m near a music store. br> — Bruce Clark br> Cisco, Texas /p> p> Y’know I was stoked about Megadeth’s theme so I went to the Barnes & Noble to listen to the record. Loved the message, but unfortunately that death metal or whatever they call it is a bitter brew to digest. Still, I’m holding my lighter aloft to the boys. br> — Mike Baron /p>
In many conversations I have brought up Mustaine’s truism that: “many people talk of selling peace, but nobody’s buying it.”p>To this day, few pointy-heads, and few of our own on the Right have been able to so succinctly sum up the folly of “peaceniks” world-wide.

In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
