Josh Surkes, right, on attending his first anti-war protest with friend Billy Jack Sheffield.



We’ve been talking about it forever, sitting around the TV, yelling at the TV. I think when I really got pissed off was Bush’s State of the Union, when he basically declared war on Iran, and people were just like, “Hey, that was a great State of the Union.

It’s getting worse and worse. The money we’re spending is getting higher and higher, the death toll is rising like crazy. We’re, like, on the verge of a huge Middle East war. … You sit around, you bitch, you read about all the people dying, you just kind of get upset after a while. It just kind of hurts your heart. Something needs to be done.
