This Doobie Brother Is An American Patriot

So many of the 60's and 70's rock and roll stars have remained part of the left wing counter-culture that blames America first, swims in moral relativism and preaches socialism. In many cases these individuals struggle to pledge their allegiance to America first, instead their souls lie with a " United Nations " version of one world government. Don't bother raising any references to corruption in this world body; remember, moral relativism is their domain.

Apparently, though, there are a few exceptions. Chief amongst them, a former guitarist for the Doobie Brothers, Jeff Baxter. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal Online on May 24th, we learn that Jeff Baxter does more for his country than just entertain.
The guitarist-turned-defense-consultant does regular work for the Department of Defense and the nation's intelligence community, chairs a congressional advisory board on missile defense, and has lucrative consulting contracts with companies like Science Applications International Corp., Northrop Grumman Corp. and General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc. He says he is in increasing demand for his unconventional views of counterterrorism.
Republican congressman Curt Weldon of Pennsylvania, who has worked with Jeff comments:
"Most of Hollywood is from the liberal,'let's hug the tree and be warm and fuzzy and sing Kumbaya,'bent,"....."You put Jeff Baxter up against them, and he cleans their clocks because he actually knows the facts and details." He has appeared in public debates and given numerous press and TV interviews on CNN and Fox News advocating missile defense. He also served as a national spokesman for Americans for Missile Defense, a coalition of conservative organizations devoted to the issue.
I don't know for sure which political party Jeff Baxter belongs to ; although I know where my money would be. One thing, however, is clear; Jeff Baxter is one patriotic hippie!!
