Keep your government hands off my Medicare – and put on a music festival! The Freedom Jamboree will take place 28 September – 2 October in Kansas City, Kansas. The event will feature a slew of acts, from politicos to such musical artists as Chris Ross, Nathan Mann, Jon David Kahn, Najee, J-Shin, Jay Smoove, Toots Sweet, Chris Cassone, Jayquan, the Supremes, Tito Puente, Jr., Lonnie Smith, James De La Raza, Debbie K., Sherry Marquelle, Jeremy Dodge, Wes Hotchkiss, Chuck Day, Jordan Page, Lisa Mei Norton, Joyce Shaffer, and Krista Branch. One musician, Jordan Page, promises a “politically and spiritually based assault on the corruption of government and empire.”Moreover, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann has been invited to the festival. Exactly what sort of song would she sing?
