You ain't >never< heard me characterize myself as conservative, son. At the MOST, I might consider myself *fiscally* conservative compared to GDub, but still to the left of today's New Republicans, and a few Democrats. It's complicated, ain't it? Don't stress yourself unduly.
So, you want to do some topix "analysis", do ya? Alright. It's this simple, ROTS. You're a simple man. For you the political "spectrum" is a linear scale - left at this end, rights over there, everybody stay in their places. You see the world in monochromes of black and white, and it's beyond your ken to to imagine nuance or grasp the concept of a 4D political compass, where one might be left and above the line here, right and below the line there, depending on the ISSUE, not the ideology.
And you've taken pains to tell me how many times now that you don't consider my positions? Do you imagine that this information concerns me in some way? Ouch! Oh, please stop! I'm sooo sorry, puhleeze consider my stances, ROTS.......
>wry grin here<
You know what's really funny? You keep saying that, but you keep responding to them. You a funny guy, you are.
(Ya'll go ahead and commiserate with him and stroke his pointy little head, but don't bother finger-wagging this direction, m'kay? You'll get no response. Got no patience for topix wannabe profilers)
No I really dont think you care, as a matter of fact i almost added that to the post, but i dont have to get my every thought into a post like you do.

I just thought I'd try to help you out, take it for whatever its worth to you, I dont much care either.

As far as you not calling yourself a con the first year or two? BS.

I can remember the post where you finally admitted you were maybe really a liberal after all. I remember it because I thought it was a pivotal moment for you. You finally saw what everyone else saw. I know you guys here like to try to break your beliefs down as far as you can, and thats fine. At the end of the day your a lib or your a con. When you defend this admin to no ends no matter how in the wrong they are, and you ridicule the Bush admin no matter how in the right they were on something, it puts you in the lib category for me. You can break it down from there but I'm not gonna. To bad for you I guess..........

I haven't had the chance to listen to any of the music, but I'll add my own to the mix.

This one is dedicated to HIP.

Sorry Lis, I picked the same song as you.

By the way you have great taste in music.

I had a feeling I should go through the songs before I picked one. But I thought what are the odds.

Hard to pick a favorite Pink Floyd tune, but this ones at the top for me. Just love the guitar in it.

Hey you're supposed to listen to the same song over and over. I played the song "Mecca" over and over until someone broke it.(it was a 45rpm)

Thank you, as well.

I briefly considered following the 'music therapy' educational track, in college. Still think it has a lot of merit, but chose to go another way.

Thanks again for the tunes!

I'm sure your Ben Franklin joke will be met with chuckles, snickers, and guffaws. It even got one from me.

Funny - Posting this one was met with deep and vitriolic disapproval, with accusations of being a bitter old crybaby, with latent misogynist tendencies...
It's a funny world...
Funny is funny. Hyper-partisans will scream bloody murder no matter what. Example: substitute Hillarys image for Michelles in that photo and its not funny anymore to some. As a fan of the long gone National Lampoon I appreciate humor sometimes seen as out of bounds. One favorite of mine was a cartoon depicting the middle east peace talks. Jimmy Carter,Begin and Sadat were at a table and Carter was droning on and on, Begin turns to Sadat and pleads: Sadat,Sadat make this asshole shut up,to which a wild eyed Sadat replies "I'll sign anything".

Great stuff ya'lls, late in the night where we won't be botherin' nobody. Long ways from the days when the JBLs at this same time of night sure as heck did seem to bother the neighbors, hmm?
Here's a Boz Scaggs number, well back In the day before his Mr. Suave incarnation. You might have heard of his hired guitar picker.

No JBLS here until later on. My first apartment in the late 70s was furnished with Fisher speakers
only slightly smaller than the fridge.

<quoted text>Yep it still speaks to me. When I think about the ACA it seems to me that everybody is wrong because they're talking about the wrong thing. The bottom line is that as Lyndi says the pres is doing a happy dance over the 7million. It doesn't matter how they got that number what matters is that the original goal to insure the uninsured (40 million) has been lost. It take time you say? Well if they have to keep spending to nudge people to sign up time is tons of money.The money already spent could probably have insured them all.
Fat people haven't quite become a protected group. I doubt that if Chris Christie becomes president that they will call people fat bigots if they don't like him or if he loses weight that they'll say he's only half fat. But we'll see.
Fat people are on their way to pc protection. My daughter is 5-4 and 100lbs and people frequently feel free to suggest to her she is "too thin".Try suggesting to some one they are too fat and you will be buried in an avalanche of "body issue" complaints.
I belong to Planet (gag) Fitness because its $10 monthly but their entire business plan is based on "not being judgemental". In doing so they freely judge those they view as muscleheads as being undesirable and not welcome in their gyms.

Sometime's everybody's right too. I recall I was against the bailout of GM believing companies need to fail when they do a lousy job. But if GM had not been bailed out or at least absorbed by a better company would the recall have occurred and would more people get hurt or die?(I still don't understand how the ignition problem caused deaths but I guess I need to read more about it.)
I believe the issue was the key could shift from the on position to the acc position disabling the power steering and possibly brakes. I suspect the problem likely occurred when people had key rings adorned with doo dads that made them a bit heavy and when the weight shifted it was enough to shift the key from on to acc.

Another one not so much off the rack. Like you say, much to pick from but that is my favorite David Gilmour work right there.

Back in line with CAbob's request for guitar work, here's one off the beaten path from the mid-70's. A casualty of the Drug Wars, or I'm sure he'd be much more well known:

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Kinda sad thru computer speakers. Imagine it thru 12" woofers if you can. If you hang for the whole song, notice the multiple time changes, which hints at some great work he went on to do with Jan Hammer and Buddy Miles in the jazz-rock genre.

My first were Electro-Phonics so you got the edge there. We'd just party at your place. It wasn't long after I got my first FT job (where I still work today), that I was able to find a second hand 85W Sansui amp/preamp and JBL100s. That was 35 years ago - Sansui is long gone, but still have the JBLs today (amazingly, nobody ever got stupid drunk enough to put their finger in the speaker cones).

My middle son is into music as much as I was (and still am), but most kids have no concept of the hi-fidelity we thought was so important. Once I mentioned the stereo separation in a particular song and he didn't even know what I was talking about. "Right/left what?" Quad would blow his mind....

What was that song that you'd play on the stereo and hear different drum beats from the different speakers.

“2016 No Clinton No Bush!”

I had a Sansui something I just don't remember what it was. I still have 2 Technics turntables. I have a bunch of stuff packed away.I worked for JVC when they first came to US.The plant was in Queens,NY.I still have quad headphones from that job.
As you can tell from my name southern rock is my music of choice Skynyrd,Allman Brothers,Molly Hatchet,ZZ Top but back in the day i listened to my share of Zep. I knew the guys from a band named Zebra and actually shared a mic with Dee Snider onstage singing Sweet Jane when Twisted was still a cover band.Yes a storied history for sure.

Hmm, from that >excellent< description we surely can nail it right down (open smile here)

Frankenstein, maybe? You should hear that one in quadrophonic sound. Wow.

A lot of bands used the stereo to a greater degree than others. The Beatles used it heavily, as did most prog rock bands. Black Sabbath has a tune that opens with a person coughing and it progresses from extreme left across to right - trippy! What was even trippier is that it arrived in a Rod McKuen (easy-listening) sleeve that Mom ordered from Columbia House. Surely Ol' Scratch arranged that switch to invade the home and pollute her children's minds.

Well, it worked ;)

I'm sorry here when we can't see body cues cos I mean this very light-hearted - your question reminds me of the time my wife said,'What was the name of that movie, with those two guys, you know, those two funny guys? And they do all that crazy stuff? What was that?"
