    Recent Code Pink Direct Action Protest Against War Criminals Henry Kissinger, George Schult, Madeleine Albright, and John McCain in Washington, DC. McCain who likes to meet with terrorists on Syrian soil is the most active of the bunch of war profiteers these days. War Criminals Watch!

    It is madness indeed! Thanks to Code Pink for opposing it! MAD COWBOY DISEASE (2013 update) at Truth Troubadour Channel on YouTube http://youtu.be/szgyFQCJtbQ Mad Cowboy Disease is a humorous (not funny!) walking cartoon-song influenced by listening to Broadside Balladeers like Phil Ochs. Unfortunately, it has become apparent over the years that an update of MAD COWBOY DISEASE with reference to the Obama-Biden regime is painfully more fitting than most people would have thought possible. This song was originally a broadside against the Bush Administration's Neo Con war policies with a humorous rationale for their bellicose behavior based on the lies and cultivated myths of the terrorizing 9/11/01 attacks. "It must have been the dinner at the Inauguration Ball. There must have been some Mad Cow on the menu after all." The 2013 version of MAD COWBOY DISEASE interprets the song into the Obama era of corruption, hypocrisy, deception, betrayal, drones, new illegal wars in Libya and Syria, and violations of the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. MAD COWBOY DISEASE was released as a song on the 2005 CD “Broadsides & Retrospectives” and in 2011 on the CD “9/11 Truth & Justice Songs” by Vic Sadot - Berkeley Broadside Balladeer & Crazy Planet Band, which are both available on CD Baby. Vocals and acoustic guitar by Vic Sadot Singer-Songwriter. The guitar on this song is by Rob Sadot and the other instruments and sound-engineering were done by Dean A. Banks, the Co-Producer of “Broadsides & Retrospectives”. Photos from US military torture prisons at Abu Ghraib in Iraq and Guantanamo in Cuba, as well as anti-war photos that were used in Vic's first version of MAD COWBOY DISEASE were from the “www dot WarIsACrime dot org” website (formerly “After Downing Street” by David Swanson. The new version of MAD COWBOY DISEASE relied heavily on the artistic work of David Dees, who we thank, and who we salute for his courageous and relentless truth seeking and speaking.
