War. What Is It Good For?

Edwin Starr – War (What is it good for)

Ooh, war
Has shattered many a-young man’s dreams
Made him disabled, bitter, and mean
And life is much too short and precious
To spend fighting wars each day
War can’t give life
It can only take it away
Oh, war!
(H’uh) Good God, y’all
(What is it good for?)
Absolutely (nothin’)
Say it, again
Whoa (h’uh) whoa-whoa, Lord
(What is it good for?)
A-absolutely (nothin’)
Listen to me!
It ain’t nothin’ but a heartbreaker
Friend only to the undertaker
Peace, love and understanding tell me
Is there no place for anything else?
They say we must fight
To keep our freedoms
But Lord, knows there’s got to be
A better way
God, y’all! (uh)
(What is it good for?)
You tell ’em! (h’uh)
Say it, say it, say it
Good God (h’uh) now, h’uh
(What is it good for?)
Stand up and shout it
It ain’t nothin’ but a heartbreaker
Ooh, war.

I can hear this song in my head from the days of Vietnam. People. War is hell. It destroys. It kills. Not only the body, but the minds of men.

Anarchy is becoming the normal day to day happening now. With anarchy comes war. sides become inflamed to the point anger takes hold and physical actions takes hold.

We are to the point the United States is attack from within by sources from all over the world that knew the only way to defeat us is to do it from within.

I fear for my sons and their wives and my grandchildren. I fear for everyone’s lives and families. This is not a joke. It’s not some conspiracy theory. It’s here. Christian folk will be beating the drums of “end times”. Some will probably say it’s just change. Some will follow it right to the cliff of death as lemmings.

I am prepared to deal with it as best I can. my neighbors are are fed up with the present situation. I would say there is a sleeping giant in the United States when awakened will open fire on these anarchists. The war will be on. Mark my words.

About Jim

I'm a 72 yr old guy, who had worked in Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune for 28 yrs and now retired as of 31 Dec 16. I've worked in medical records, Health Benefits Department, Billing, the IT department and retired as the Personnel Security Manager for the hospital. I'm a musician and Corvette enthusiast. Yes, I have had two. I traded my second Corvette for a Harley Davidson Fat Boy mid-summer 2019. I've already ridden about seven thousand miles. I'm also searching for a fresh new outlook on life with new spiritual insight among other things. I was ordained a minister on 20190202. I've become certified with the American Chaplaincy Association through Aidan University in June '21. I've found that with the unconditional love of my companion, Libby Rowe life is complete through God. She's a beautiful, vibrant, giving woman who gives her all in everything she puts her mind to do. She and I married on 24 July 2015. She was ordained in February 2022. She has a blog too called Under a Carolina Moon. Give it a visit.
