"Good afternoon, I'm Jim McDermott and I represent Seattle."


Restoring Privacy to Young People
For Immediate Release - Thursday, March 17, 2005

Congressman McDermott delivered the following remarks at the opening of a press conference where he and Representatives Stark and Woolsey joined members of the punk rock band "Anti Flag" highlighting the groups launch of a nationwide petition drive to the fix the "No Child Left Behind Act." A provision in the act gives military recruiters access to student records.

Good afternoon, I'm Jim McDermott and I represent Seattle. Let me be clear. I own styling gel, but I left it home today. And before I had white hair, I sported a look not all that dissimilar from those here today.

Let me recognize my good friend and colleague Pete Stark, who represents Freemont, California.

I also want to introduce some very interesting young men from Pittsburgh. They are Justin Sane, Chris #2, Chris Head and Pat Thetic. I first met this Punk band- Anti Flag- last fall when they led a nationwide drive to get young people registered to vote.

If you want to know why voter turnout among young people last November was so large, these people are a big part of the reason. The future belongs to them and they are taking charge of it, and not a moment too soon the way things are going around here.

Pete and I are veterans. I served in the U.S. Navy and Pete in the United States Air Force. We support our soldiers. Don't let anyone mislead you into thinking otherwise.

We're here today to call attention to something that has no place in a free society and no place in a volunteer army. Under a provision buried in the No Child Left Behind law, military recruiters have access to private student information.

High schools across America are drug-free, alcohol-free and weapons-free; they should also be military-free. Every branch of the military has a multi-million dollar advertising budget; there's plenty of money and plenty of access without invading privacy.

When they are not doing concerts, Justin Sane and Pat Thetic are writing op-ed pieces that are appearing in major newspapers across the country.

Recently, Justin Sane wrote in an op-ed, "It's no secret that military recruitment is down, retention is down and U.S. forces are spread paper-thin."

"The most intense time I ever had in the studio was the first time I met Scarface. I told him I needed 16 bars for my album and I’d be at the studio at 9:30 p.m. At 9:30 he came walking in by himself. He sat down, took a pen and a pad. He wrote about three words and said, “I don’t need this.” He started rocking his head and just vibing out. He went into the booth and just started spitting.

It was so hard and so intense! By the time he hit about the 24th bar, he was just screaming, and he ran away from the mic. We were just standing there looking at him. He disappears and then runs back to the mic. He started doing jumping jacks, acting like he was boxing, and started screaming. And when he stopped, he ran out the booth and just left the studio. And he just jetted. He didn’t say, ‘I’ll see you later” or nothing. And the verse was so mean! The record ended up being "I Never Like Ya Ass" with Fat Joe, Scarface, and Raekwon on Streetsweeper Vol. 1 never seen no shit like that in my life."
- DJ Kayslay, Scratch, Mar/Apr 2005

"Here are a couple of steps you can take to make sure your mix sounds good no matter where it’s played.. Always be sure to A/B your own tracks next to tracks you are trying to emulate – if your track sounds as good as a commercial recording.. it should sound almost as good anywhere."
- Young Guru, Scratch, Mar/Apr 2005

"I was a fuckin’ nerd. And I’m still a fuckin’ nerd.. Every two years, I dramatically changed the way I dressed. Before I started getting notoriety, I was considered kind of a weirdo. When Prada sneakers first came out, I wore them with jeans, and people said, ‘Where are your Jordans?’ I would wear all these colors years ago, and dudes would be like, ‘What are you doin?’ Now it’s cool to be vivid.. Look at the trucker hat. I can’t say it’s me. I got it from The Dukes of Hazzard. It seemed like Uncle Jesse wore one in every episode. I just always thought there was something cool about it."
- Pharrell, Vibe, March 2005

"A mom and her daughter were walking by a house and the daughter sees these people having sex and the little girl asks, "Mommy what are they doing?" And the mom replies, "Baking a cake." The next day the little girl asks the same thing and the mom replies the same thing.. "Baking a cake." And the little girl says, "That's right. Thats what you and daddy were doing last night on the lawn!" And the mom says, "How do you know?" Then the little girl says, "Because I tasted some of the frosting."
