"I have a
grandson who’s already received a Purple Heart in Baghdad, and they
just put him back to duty. One Purple Heart wasn’t enough. I have a
long history of military men in my family. … I tried to go in the
Marines when I was 14 years old. I’m an American. Hell, I’m the guy who
wrote ‘Fightin’ Side of Me,’ and I just wish George Bush would step up
to the microphone and say, ‘Folks, it’s about oil.’ Just treat us like
adults. … That all I’m bothered about. I just hate to be lied to."
