A "dibs" is not a "claim", sir; it has no legal status, and is reserved for juvenilia and its overgrown counterparts such as your own jejune self-inflation on the subject of post numbers.

I asked Chongo if he was going to take legal action against you for your recent scurrilous allegations against him, Rap. He said, "Naw...let the silly sap hang himself with his own rope."

He appears unconcerned by your latest exercise in partisan poopflinging. ;-)

Dear Rapparee:

I have made note of your proposed claim-stake, but I should inform you, after due consultation with Mom, that your succeeding at acquiring that numbered post--or any numbered post-- depends on your own timely wit and dexterity of thumb. Each post in this long and tortuous trail known as MOAB has fallen exactly to the person who posted to claim it at the right moment, and ye timing of the moment when you press Submit will do more for your claim than all the huffery and puffery in Christendom, of which you have cornered a good share.

No Don, I was jesting with Rapparee's post: "Heck, I've known that for just, oh, years and years. Include laughter and you've got whatever is needed"

So I replied with, "Laughing my ass off................now send money!"

Try not to make up a new hateful motive..THIS TIME!

.. ..and talking about people who misconstrue what is said, rephrase it and create mindless bias..here you are AGAIN!

SRS..we cross posted...SRS: "There's no getting above the political fray, these days, without appearing to be rather mindless."

Quite the contrary..it is the mindless who feel the need to be told what to think.....Not very CREATIVE, either!! The best solutions have yet to come forward..or at least be given 'coverage'. This is because the 'news media' are also controlled, and working on behalf of the controlling manipulators..who also 'contribute' to political 'solutions(?)' to the problems created and exploited, by them in the first place.

For instance, once they figure out a way to charge for one person doing an act of kindness to another fellow human being, they will make a law, and charge a fee!...and demonize anyone doing just that, outside their stupid 'law'!......It takes just a frame of mind, to do unto others as you would have them do to you....even if the 'law' gets in the way!!!

This country was founded where its citizens could do as they wished, as long as it did not infringe on the liberties and freedoms of another human being. the central government was supposed to defend our borders, and protect us, so we would have the freedom to do just that, while pursuing our own goals, hopefully productive. as it stands now, the government that is suppose to be protecting our freedoms is in everybody's shit, from cradle to grave. government needs to 'get back down'..and stop restricting US from the exercising, those rights.

I don't need to be instructed, who or what to hate, or fear, nor forced to be a part of their vision....I can do quite well on my own, thank you!....as you can also.

I didn't create the mess, nor did you, more than likely.....but we are stuck with the 'clean-up' and consequences. I say let those responsible, be accountable, AND stop promoting 'new fixes', which in reality are just more problems...all for a fee, of course!

Name a topic...and you will find a government program that initiated it, exploited it, and failed to remedy it...while encroaching their will, over our freedom!...oh, and making us pay for it, as well!

We are NOT in a recession....they won't even tell you the truth, either. We are in a depression, that they created, accommodating corrupt agendas, designed to make the 'corporate special interests' and the paid off politician PROFIT, in the short term, while we all suffer in the long term.

Now, I don't find any reason to be 'tolerant' or 'polite' so such actions, or purveyors and promoters of that kind of bullshit!. Do you?? ....even if they hide behind some politically correct concoction of 'good intentions'!

You KNOW people who are suffering from the damage of both party's corrupt policies, and there is NO reason, any further to make apologies and excuses for such foul behavior!...nor promote their messages of lying hogwash! Call it for what it is....and have a great day.....oh,......and don't forget to rinse the sink out, after your lunch!..(wink)

There's no getting above the political fray, these days, without appearing to be rather mindless. Expressing an opinion lucidly, with citations as needed, does seem to be a lost art, but it would be wonderful if more people tried it.

GfS, from what I see, you do a lot of stirring up and annoying people. As a contrarian. That isn't a particularly attractive position to take. We'll have to see what your demeanor is here, perhaps that opinion will be revised. And I'll say it again, if you don't start a thread about the musician you think doesn't get enough attention, that's the end of it, because there are only about seven of us who regularly read this thread and it won't go any further once we get a page or two out (on the 50 message per page screen).

I have been the target of quite a few of those, by people who felt the need to create a bias, supporting their error!...Anyone following my posts, knows this to be true.

The rest of the time, I'm just a little snot....dropping lyrical lines and phrases for everyone's use!...and peppering this forum with music that I thought would be profitable for input.

Musicians have the extraordinary ability to ride the currents ABOVE political trends....if they stick to their music! Musicians can be heard on media, even if that media source is known as biased. Case in point: I posted this link that was well received, even by our resident Democratic Party wannabe activists, who LOVED the song performance....but neglected to throw up..because it was on FOX!
...did the music indicate a partisan persuasion? ...and here's the entire set !!!
We have an avenue to rise above the political fray...and bring it on home, to the human condition....but the focus needs to be ABOVE the political wrangling...and at least make an attempt to find the TRUTH, regardless of whose or what party's toes get stepped on. We have more power of influence, as long as we don't sell ourselves short....by believing their contrived, deceptive co-opted 'alliances'!!!!
Music activates more neurons in the brain than most any other activity on the planet...including sex.....why be smaller, stupider, and under their thumb??
Dylan, The Beatles, CSNY, and more created MORE influence than either political party has been able to contain!....Fuck 'em!!

I agree with everything said re GfS but if I had affronted someone incorrectly, I would apologize for my misunderstanding. I've even apologized when I wasn't wrong... mostly to my old man... got my ass kicked for that too.

Heheheee... minds me a the time were were putting the Xmas decorations away. I was about 12 and I inadvertently tipped the box I was carrying and a package of decorations on top of that box slipped off when I made a quick turn in the basement. Without warning, he booted me in the arse for being careless and I dropped the rest of the stuff. Ya know what the old glass bulbs sound like when the break eh? Ya know what the footsteps of a 12 year old on the run sound like eh?

I was scared shitless. I heard him come up the stairs. I heard his footsteps come closer to my bedroom. He walked in and said, "I'm sorry. I shouldn't have done that." I was dumbstruck. But I kept my eyes peeled for the next few days and never got too close.

Only dawned on me many years later... he was gonna hafta explain the broken bulbs to Mum... hehehhee.

OH! Yeah! We're eating supper in the kitchen. The ooold string on the pic above the fireplace in the living room let go. The pic hit the Black Forest 400 day clock on the mantle and knocked it onto the tiled hearth apron upside downey. The glass globe smashed and the spire (?) on the top of the clock stuck in the ceramic tile. It was an odd sight as we stood in the living room piecing the situation together. I looked at the old man and said, "It wasn't me.".... stooopid move on my part. It was too soon after the ceramic swan incident. I shoulda just told the truth insteada gluing it back together and trying to get away with it.

Come to think of it, I broke a lotta shit when I was a lad.

Wow, Little Hawk, you nailed it.
   Before came on, I was thinking of something in response to what I was reading, and thought to myself, "Well I'm sure glad that political devotees, still think 'freedom of speech' fits into their political outlook, and their 'liberal(?) minds were still concerned about our basic rights...and exercising them wasn't such a violent affront to their 'sensibilities'"! ...then I came on, and read Little Hawk's post. I'm both flattered and humbled, that someone could explain it so clear........ahem(clears throat)...........in such limited space, I might add!

My thrust is that musicians...true musicians, ...are a truly fortunate critter, that has a gift..a unique gift...not just 'bestowed' on just everyone..To nurture that gift, requires massive focus, and gratitude...of which deserves keeping your filters clear, to reach into that place from where beautiful sounds, and groups of sounds originate.
In that place there is unity, harmony, expressions to and from the human soul to another, expressions of emotions, and the linking of emotions, and images..and timing.

I find that real musicians, should be free, of the clutter that confuses so many, and so much our known reality!....and not infuse their consciousness, with the contradictory fraudulent claims of manipulators, who use those means of destroying the virtues that constitute compassion. It is that gift, and connection to the best of human virtues, that enables music to express that empathy, to our fellow man.

But you can't do it, and bring peace, or express harmony...while the music has to work its way through bias, resentment and fear.

I've been called a racist, bigot, progressive, Tea Partier, troll, Fascist, right-winger, homophobic, a man and a woman, on here(and I've noted the difference of attitude of those addressing of both),..and all the while, while attacking phony political dogma, been posting fucking wonderful music the whole way........
...and to quote Frank Zappa...."and they thought it couldn't happen here....they were so sure...."

It's always been about the music...the right wing and left wing are on the same old turkey.....no matter what kind of dressing.

Go back to your peasant meanderings....

Well, I hope so.

I don't recall the stuff about GfS posing as a female with child... (?)

Anyway, the distinguishing feature with Claymore and Martin Gibson was primarily their extreme political partisanship which was at diametrical odds with the vast majority of people on this forum. In short, they were very much on the political Right.

GfS is of a different stripe than that. GfS criticizes both the Republican and the Democratic parties with pretty much equal vehemence, seeing them both as working for the same corrupt entrenched interests (albeit while posing outwardly in an oppositional style toward one another and acting as if they were a viable opposite choice for the voters). GfS is not the classic rightwinger. GfS is an independently minded person who repudiates both of those 2 big parties which pose as "left" and "right" in the USA and says they're both phony baloney, and that the public is being manipulated by them in a perpetual "divide and conquer" scenario.

I agree with that. I think, sadly, that much the same thing is happening in Canadian politics (with as many as 4 parties!) and in the UK politics (with 3 parties). No matter who the public votes for those 3 countries, their wars of choice continue, the bankers and the military industrial complex rule the roost, hidden taxes go up, the currency inflates, civil rights are legislated away, and the public loses out.

Our political parties have all betrayed us, and they continue to betray us, because they've been bought by the highest bidders.

That's what GfS keeps saying, and I have to agree.

I'm not suggesting "Don't vote". After all, one must still consider who is the best local or regional or national candidate in one's own estimation...out of a usually not very good lot. But I'm saying that our "democracies" have been eviscerated from within by the power of Big Money, and there's no obvious solution to the problem...given the fact that those who have been corrupted are not likely to change the rules and uncorrupt themselves once they're in office!

Anyway, I'm basically on the Left, as you know...I always have been...and I do not see GfS as the classic Right winger at all. Hardly. GfS is an independently minded person who believes in neither the Right nor the Left as they are presently embodied in the major political parties in North America.

I understand that. I feel the same way about it. I'm very, very tired of having to pick the "lesser of 2 evils" at election time, and I don't call that a democracy. I call it an Oligarchy...sort of like the liberals and conservatives were in the old Communist Party in Russia before the Soviet Union fell. They were the 2 ends of a corrupt order. I don't believe in self-serving Oligarchies run by a privileged elite.

So I like GfS on 2 counts...basic personality on direct acquaintance...and a pretty good grasp of what the heck is going on with western party politics in the 21st Century.

I think if we all met in person...in real life...heck, we'd all like each other just fine.

Well, gnu, I know GfS directly (outside of Mudcat) and have never found him to have any ill intention to anyone. Have also found him to be friendly, really interesting to talk to, and genuinely very enthusiastic about music. People here are often reacting to GfS's banter when reading it as if they pictured him having a mean scowl or a nasty sneer on his face while he's typing it. He doesn't. His motives are being misjudged due to the fact that several people here have long since decided to make him a personal "enemy" of theirs (mainly due to political squabbles) and they therefore read everything he posts with their mind already made up on what kind of shithead they think he is...and they picture this very nasty person in their minds....a person who simply does not exist!

That gets pretty silly. I question it. It's an overreaction to a preconciption which does not jibe with the actual reality of who GfS is.

And that's why I question it.

I realize that for those who have their minds made up already, nothing I say will ever make any difference, they won't change their minds no matter what, and I figure thare's nothing I can do about that, right? But that's how it stands.

Good-natured banter is not personal attack.

If any of us "regulars" posted a link to a music video (or anything else whatsoever really) on the MOABS, no one here would see any reason to object to it...because they do not treat each other the way they do GfS (the "outsider").

Sounds like any small club anywhere to me. The familiar members get all kinds of slack...their banter is taken as banter...their links are not questioned. Visitors, specially some visitors, are regarded with suspicion. Their banter is taken as a personal attack of some kind on someone. Their links are scorned. Their character is questioned. Any attempt they make to defend their character is taken as further evidence of how rotten they are.

Sort of like coming up before the Inquisition...only with far less serious consequences, fortunately, because people here are powerless to act on their dislike toward other people.

I found the Biff Rose links quite interesting. I can't see any objection to having them on this thread.

On the way back, about three hours later, the wind was strong. I drifted into the alders before getting to shore and the right rear wheel caught in. The bike lurched forward and I hit the shore in third gear. Arse over tea kettle. Bruised ribs. Cuts. Scrapes. BUT, far worse, my Baikal, still in the scabbard, was cracked at the pistol grip.

Okay. I don't understand this because a big corporation is involved. Well, maybe I do: they may have started to get it through their corporate heads that prevention is better than hospitalization -- and cheaper for them. But here's what's happened.

I picked up the mail today and there was what appeared to be junk mail from Humana, the company that manages our Medicare benefits and stuff like that. "Consumers Reports" gave Humana a straight-across-the-board "open circle" rating recently. Just so you know.

Anyway, since I went into the local hospital on December 14 and stayed overnight, Humana's "Well Dine" program is sending me ten (10) nutritious frozen meals to help prevent my re-hospitalization due to poor nutrition (like Pat would permit that!).

This is at no extra cost to me. On January 4 they're to be delivered.

Okay. If this is so important, why aren't all health insurance plans doing it? We also don't pay for immunizations, mammograms, colonoscopies, or other preventive measures. I also have a free membership in the "Silver Sneakers" program, which allows me to unlimited visits to two local fitness centers and a slew of others such places around the country.

Well, I'll take ten free meals. I ain't about to turn down food.
