    In Response to Re: The disappearance of MR. Wastefield:
    [QUOTE]It wasn't by intent. It was negligence. Which describes 12 years of Bush league. Nixon can't make the same claim. It was specific intent to leave the scene. The moderate Nixon didn't kill anyone, and had he had the wisdom to simply admit knolwedge of breaking into the campagin headquarters of the Socialist Public Policy Democrat Party, it is unlikely that his fellow rival political crooks would have been able to pretend that it was the equivalent of having dead people vote and throwing votes in a Chicago river. Like nearly every politician, corruption and scienter of organized corruption is a requirement for membership in the club. In terms of culpability, Nixon was virtuous compared to blow dry blogo and the Daly Chicago corruption. He could have challenged and likely exposed the 1960 union and mob based orgainzied crime voter fraud corruption in Chicago that would have made Watergate look like a parking ticket. He chose the path of least resistance, which is not as sinister as the motives of his political adversaries.  Nixon and Bushers were not conservatives. However, their negligence hasn't done the damage of the sinister policies of entitlement debt for votes and the corrupt federal policies of illegitimate interference with commerce, private property and liberty.  As long as the typical American voter buys into something for nothing, the credit card crack of American culture, they will get the current leaders who sell the policy of something for nothing. But credit abuse and dependence leads to suspension and a dry well, which is where we are now. The American people don't want to give up the current entitlements, as more than one generation is now dependent upon and expectations of the false claims of "retirement", which is really signing up to be a ward of the State and burden to private property and working capital. The current administration is counting on you and the millions of others to join together to vote for those who promise to raise the debt ceiling, expand the entitlements and appropriate more private property to keep confidence in the Madoff ponzi scheme alive. Simply closing corporate loopholes and making rich people pay their "fair share" will keep the credit line open and keep those who either get or are expecting something for nothing to maintain confidence in the policy federal administration of social programs. Of course, even if the administration had, when it had the chance to do so under the law firm of Obama, Reid and Pelosi, AA, appropriated a Marxist level of private wealth, the entitlement policies will never be fully funded and the central authority will default without calling it a default.  In my time as a citizen, I have learned that, collectively, people have and will always manufacture artifices of corruption. To this extent, the aspirational visions of the founding fathers and the rights and strictures of the U.S. Constitition have been eroded under the powerful seductive appeal of the vision of a collective utopia. There has never been, in U.S history, an organization that embodies the competing collectivist vision, more than the current administration. It is, exactly, the vision of marxism, administered in the form of a socialist republic. The inevitable end of the pathos of socialist republic economic policy is the economic ruins that create a vacuum replaced by totalitariansim. For to be productive, man must must have the promise and protection of private property. To maintain this freedom, there must be a sober and intelligent society that understands the wisdom of a social order based upon family and what the virtues of a responsible family member entails.

    I agree with much of this.  FDR the icon of the American left and someone I begrudgingly respect(I disagree with many of his policies most especially interring Japanese American's in forced camps in the southwest) had said when SS was passed that this is "one leg of a 3 legged stool".  In other words it was never intended as the only means for Americans to retire.  FDR realized that company pensions and private investment were also critical to ensure a comfortable retirement for most people.  The modern American left has forgotten this and are the main architects of big government which by its nature must grow if only to keep the same members of congress in positions of power.  All these people care about both the GOP and the democrats is staying in power above any other consideration the republic and its citizens be damned!  The problem with the modern GOP is they are barely better than the democrats in the big government philosophy.  They resemble the democrat party of perhaps 30 years ago and their complete anathema to regulation by many in the conservative wing is no better than overregulation by the mainstream left.  We have lost "checks and balances" in any true sense.

    Now I get it; Wastefield has made himself incognito in the Congressional halls as a lobbyist. It's good to know this thread has "stayed the course".

    You are stating the obvious, in a delightful manner.
    Once you have a run-away train politically,morally and economically, the engineer becomes almost irrelevant.

    To get anything half-way productive accomplished, it takes compromise. And when one compromises his/her position, the gears start slipping. And while the foundation of our fathers was made with good intent and prophetic insight, human nature will always reveal flaws within.

    This again seems appropriate:

    Agreed; it was so good I pasted it on my Facebook wall. The garb worn by those in the video was very 60s, and most appear to be on some kind of chemical. Steppenwolf has other underappreciated songs.

    I just wanted to comment on that great youtube you found; check out the girls in the audience; they're high as a kite (And, as a result of their apparent stupor and the times, were likely very available).

    And, FTR I liked our stories.

    Steve, I've used that Youtube several times last year on many threads, incl. the REALISTIC one:).
    That version showed no live performance. Either way, the content is really powerful. It says more than I ever could otherwise.

    BTW: John Kay lives in TN, on a nice ranch. When he ventured into country rock, it was really interseting.
    Here's a couple of examples:

    Good stuff, and thanks for showing it. Of course, Drift Away was a Top 40 song around the same time by someone else. His country tinged style reminds me (a little, not the voice though) of Gram Parsons. Are you into VU or Joy Division?

    I'm vaguely familiar with Gram Parsons. Pleasant harmonic sound.

    Not into VU or Joy Division, although the latter sounds like a description of this board.
    In fact, this may describe some posters...

    Great! Dark, gothic, pathos ridden, very negative in a surrealistic sort of way, & dystopian; photos & music. I liked this one the best! Great analogy too! If those posters (we know who they are) saw this, they would be outraged. You know how on many DVDs you can watch with the Director's comments? I only wish I could hear the comments for those who strung together these photos (The Monster song too). BTW; the photo after 9/11 (Shows explosion on the 1st floor of a Bldg, looks like E. Europe); do you know what that's from?

    Parsons and the friends he chose were living life as intoxicated sould seeking individual gratifcation. This value ethic is our leadership, today.

    Lincoln was on the wrong side of segration history, and Wastefield is on the wrong side of ERA. Give him the ball in 5 more days, just for the amusement of watching the waddle.

    No, but I'm still blind-sided by your critique. You are better at it than many so-called experts. Never saw the word "dystopian" used here.

    The reason I use Youtubes instead of images is that the message is 100 times more powerful...and diverse enough to get by the censors.
