MOORPARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 15, 2005--"Enough is enough!" said Delores Taylor, alongside her husband, Tom Laughlin (Billy Jack). The quintessential activist heroine and hero of the 1970's are back with a vengeance. They are determined to end the war in Iraq, by restoring America to her moral purpose, before subway terrorists possess nuclear weapons in suitcases.

To reveal this new exciting exit plan, Laughlin will be holding a press conference at Peace House located at 9142 5th Street, Crawford, Texas, on Thursday, August 18, 2005 at 1 p.m. (CT).

"This plan is a win/win situation for the Iraqi people, and especially for every American -- Republican, Democrat or Independent. Over 87% of 174 voters strongly approved this plan, including 61% who were Republican or initially favored the war," said Laughlin.

Not affiliated with either political party, Taylor and Laughlin are inviting the public to join them in a crusade to end the war and diffuse the escalating nuclear crisis.

Outraged at the daily deaths of American soldiers as well as innocent Iraqi civilians, and in support of Cindy Sheehan's courageous stand, they have created a never-before-seen comprehensive seven-month campaign with five separate major national events. The goal is to make America and the world fully aware that there exists an immediately available exit plan to end the war, give genuine peace, freedom and democracy to the Iraqi people, and bring our troops home by Christmas.

22. Haven't listened to that song in a while
Even the original version. It's more relevant than ever before.

"Go ahead and hate your neighbor"
"Go ahead and cheat a friend"
"Do it in the name of heaven"
"You can justify it in the end"

From Bill Alward's Movie Review Site:

"Go ahead and hate your neighbor, go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in the name of Heaven, you can justify it in the end.
There won't be any trumpets blowing come the judgment day,
On the bloody morning after...One tin soldier rides away."

8. From his website.
http://www.billyjack.com/index.php?menuID=Page&pid=110

A brand new Billy Jack film -- Billy Jack's Crusade to End the War and Restore America to its Moral Purpose.

We disdain both political Parties. We believe that both the cowardly Democrats and the rapacious Republicans have become so systemically corrupt, that, as Senator Warren Rudman said when he resigned from the Senate, This place has become so corrupt it cannot function anymore. It is no longer capable of representing the people, but only the special interests, the wealthy, and the corporations, especially the multi-national corporations.


We intend for our new film and this website to be a strong intelligent voice that brings consciousness, new ideas and real power back to the people.


A powerful 5-Event National Campaign to stop the daily bloodbath in Iraq immediately...

18. Well More Power To Them!!
Hey, maybe the message is FINALLY sinking in that "the corrupt ones" are SINKING our country!!!

And I personally think the Democrats had better start doing some HOLLERING! I'm white, but I have to hand it to the Black Caucus because they're almost the only ones who are fighting the good fight.

Yeah, I know there are a few "whites" out there, but just a FEW!!!

12. No more orphans for Halliburton oil.
Here is a New, Foolproof Strategy for Ending the Mess in Iraq

An Exit Plan that brings stability and democracy to Iraq, brings our troops home immediately by replacing them with a coalition from Russia, China, France etc., none of whom are as hated as the demon/Satan Americans.

All we have to do to get these countries to take over the reconstruction of Iraq is give them back the oil leases Bush stole from them when Bush invaded. (Russia had the West Qurnah oil field, China had the Rumaylah Reserve, and France had two of Iraqs largest fields, the Majnoon and Nahr Bin Omar.)

For these countries, or any country to send their people and taxpayers money into Iraq to protect Halliburton and friends oil would be insane. Give the Iraqis the oil to give back to these major powers as they see fit, get the intensely hated Americans out who are seen in the same light as the Nazi occupiers of France, Belgium, etc., and the major powers will rush to take over and get the oil, allowing our troops to come home immediately.

How the heck have I missed BillyJack ranting this these last few yrs?

It sounds like the Iraqis are expected to trade one set of exploiters for another. They probably want their own country (and oil) back.

15. Interesting stuff on their site -- I like this retort to RW boycotts
from their Personal Statement:

******
The moment free citizens, whether they be teachers, producers, or celebrities, are afraid to speak out for fear of economic reprisals, we are no longer America.

This behavior is terrifying. It is not just terrifyingly un-American, it is terrifyingly anti-American, doing extreme violence to every spiritual and moral principle America was founded on and stands for in the world today.

To those who say I dont say they dont have a right to dissent, but I say I also have the right not to buy their records, or boycott their products, what is anti-American about that?

Everything! The true test of being an American is not just to say they have a right of free speech, and I have a right of free speech, but to stand alongside Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson and defend to the death their right to say it not matter how much I disagree with it. Any method used to strike fear into dissenters so theyll be afraid to speak up for fear of being punished, being fired, losing their right to make a living, having their products boycotted any method used to silence the dissenter instead of doing everything possible to protect and defend their right to dissent, is as anti-American as one can become. It is to be no different from the exact thing we went to war with against Hussein, it is to become exactly like the Husseins and Castros who, in the name of America, destroy America.
*****

I'm bookmarking to explore later -- hope they've added to the "Most Neurotic TV Hosts" section by then...

16. Listen, children, to a story, that was written long ago...
Listen, children, to a story
That was written long ago,
'Bout a kingdom on a mountain
And the valley-folk below.

On the mountain was a treasure
Buried deep beneath the stone,
And the valley-people swore
They'd have it for their very own.

Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
Go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in the name of Heaven,
You can justify it in the end.
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgement day,
On the bloody morning after....
One tin soldier rides away.

So the people of the valley
Sent a message up the hill,
Asking for the buried treasure,
Tons of gold for which they'd kill.

Came an answer from the kingdom,
"With our brothers we will share
All the secrets of our mountain,
All the riches buried there."

Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
Go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in the name of Heaven,
You can justify it in the end.
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgement day,
On the bloody morning after....
One tin soldier rides away.

Now the valley cried with anger,
"Mount your horses! Draw your sword!"
And they killed the mountain-people,
So they won their just reward.

Now they stood beside the treasure,
On the mountain, dark and red.
Turned the stone and looked beneath it:
"Peace on Earth" was all it said.

Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
Go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in the name of Heaven,
You can justify it in the end.
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgement day,
On the bloody morning after....
One tin soldier rides away.

that this is the start of the second coming but I have strange ideas about what the second coming is supposed to be about. It certainly is not about just one person. It's about all of us.

65. LOL
I confess it has been years since I've seen any of the Billy Jack movies. Although I do remember the era of Billy Jack hats. Oh man, the guys who wore them were usually pretty hot.

69. Welcome back, Billy Jack!
What floors me is how many "old-timers" are coming out of the woodwork to stand up. Not that they shouldn't have ideals. It's just they did their bit, they fought their fight, it's our time to pick up the flag. And still they come, and still they fight for their rights, and still they raise a little hell.

With all of the respect in the world to "the old-timers," my hat is off to you.

174 people to 10 million. That's quite a trick.

Frankly, I think he should stay the hell away from Crawford Texas. He may be very sincere, but this is likely to come off as self-promoting and more than just a little bit kooky. He runs the risk of turning Cindy's protest into a circus.

I'd love to be wrong about that.

77. Billy Jack!
Edited on Tue Aug-16-05 04:07 PM by jokerman93
Yeah! Big influence on me as a kid too. Definitely influenced my political views - and spiritual. Tom Laughlin and Delores Taylor! Wow. Just last summer I pulled all the old Billy Jack films from Netflix and we had us a marathon here down at the Palms.

:-)

I remember wondering - where are the great story tellers now? We need parables like Billy Jack - stories about real strength and the spiritual struggle against tyrannies of all kind - personal and political.

I'm ready for this! It's about time for another chapter of Billy Jack, I'd say. Hey, Tom and Delores if you read this - never got a chance to thank you for your inspiration all those many years ago. Good to see you both still kickin!

:applause:

(And also, just had to say...Billy Jack could kick the Terminator's ass anytime!)

LOL. I Love it!!!

88. NYT: June 2005 - Billy Jack is Ready to Fight the Good Fight Again
http://www.billyjack.com/index.php?menuID=Page&pid=109

SANTA ROSA VALLEY, Calif. - It has been more than 30 years, but Billy Jack is still plenty ticked off.

Back then, it was bigotry against Native Americans, trouble with the nuclear power industry and big bad government that made this screen hero explode in karate-fueled rage. At the time, the unlikely combination of rugged-loner heroics - all in defense of society's downtrodden and forgotten - and rough-edged filmmaking sparked a pop culture and box-office phenomenon.

Now the man who created and personified Billy Jack, Tom Laughlin - the writer, director, producer and actor - is determined to take on the establishment again, and his concerns are not so terribly different. Mr. Laughlin (and therefore Billy Jack) is angry about the war in Iraq and about the influence of big business in politics. And he still has a thing for the nuclear power industry.

<snip 'cause I can only post four paragraphs, but I loved the following snippet>

"We despise both political parties, really loathe them," he said. ("We" might be Mr. Laughlin and his alter ego, or it might include his wife, Delores Taylor, who played Billy Jack's pacifist partner, Jean; but one doesn't interrupt the man lightly.)
