    Revolution?

    We do pay more for healthcare but we also pay less for most goods. Basically other countries pay less for healthcare but it's made up for it in things like taxes, gas and goods prices go up. That's what will happen in the US. We get a public option try and pay less for healthcare but prices on gas and goods and our income tax will go way up. Also people will be forced to get healthcare(like me for example) when I have no need for healthcare. The only people that really have a need for healthcare are those that actually need it.

    Does anyone really think that number changes with universal healthcare. The plan that Obama wants to put out will probably put more people out of healthcare because people will get fired and lose their healthcare and some of those won't be able to pay for healthcare. Also a lot of people die because of their healthcare right now. That's what needs the biggest fix. It is impossible for a government to pay for healthcare for 300 million people and not go out of business economically. We try and give everyone healthcare and not only will our government fail but it'll go broke in the process.
  3. All of the LA shows from 75 are good. So are the Long Beach recordings from that year.

    The public government ran school system in the US is among the worst school systems in the world and it gets the most money in the world. The problem with education isn't money it's what the money is really doing. that has always been one of the failures of the national govenrment in the us that is why social security is broke, medicare and medicaid are broke and it's why the post office is going broke.

    There's probably more conservative plans that would actually work to cheapen healthcare that would work better than nationalizing healthcare.

    Americans have been raised pure capitilists and really have been since the day it was conceived. Greed is part of that. But our forefathers didn't want a national government that controls the entire populations of the country. They saw how woefully inefficient England was at doing that. Do you realize that England never really taxed Americans over anything except tea during the entire 15 or so years before the Revolutionary War? National governments have harder times controlling bigger populations. They always have and probably always will. That's why all dictatorships or monarchies fall in t
  7. If you want all the parts of the band being at their top shape for an entire year it's any of the first 3 years 69-71. Robert's voice was on the decline to my ears from about mid 72-73 and was awful in early 75. But the band wasn't really that bad during that time. In fact as a bad Jones, Bonham, and Page probably jelled their best in 75 and it really went up as Plant's voice got better by around mid February and into March. 77 Page was sometimes out of it some shows and great others, but there wasn't that balance. The band wasn't quite in sync like they were in their first 6 years as a band.

  9. There is simply nobody with a more known name in music history. Almost anyone that has picked up a guitar has used a guitar with his name on it. He is the biggest name in music.
  10. Every guitar legend is sad today.
  11. I actually like the O2 version the best. But while they were actually a band I think that version and some of the ones from March 1975 on are the best ones.

    I think watching MSNBC is almost like watching a tabloid now. They take pieces of what is said and sell it as the truth. Fox has some of that also especially with Glenn Beck, but with others like O'Riley and Briar, and I also like what Hannity does although he does go to far into the faith stuff sometimes. CNN is a little left if anything but not that far left. Both CNN and MSNBC are hurt because they are treating Obama too nicely. Not that there's a problem with that. I don't think they should treat him mean, but the job of a press is to question things. And they aren't doing that. And those
  13. Yeah Jimmy you could see a release of something that is multitracked like the 73 Southhampton show for example but you won't ever see Jimmy release something that is even a soundboard recording or a good bootleg like the Japan shows 71 unless he has it multitracked. Jimmy has said in interviews that he has no more Zeppelin stuff that he can release. I'm not sure if that's really true or not, maybe it is for his standards. But at least there's hundreds of bootlegs we can get with just some clicks on the internet. To me that doesn't matter if it's official it's still available.
  14. If this happened 4 years ago, Bush would be called Hitler by all the news networks. Even Fox News.
  15. I can't listen to a newer Stones concert. Mick Jagger lost his voice a long time ago.
  16. I think after the last one they will never say never. But there won't ever be a tour for Led Zeppelin. Although I would like to see Jimmy Page do one more tour type thing before he gets too old to do one.
  17. Rightwraith's weren't a word till Tolkein came up with them. That is in Battle of the Evermore. The Queen of Light is also mentioned in Fellowship of the Rings. I do see your point about it just being about various battles also. But there's definite Tolkien references in that song. The first few lines of the song are almost direct quotes from the book. Just like some lines from Ramble On are direct quotes. I'll try and find exact dates, but Plant also said in some concerts that Misty Mountain Hop was Tolkien influenced. I'll have to go through my bootleg collection to give you exact dates.
  18. They played it at such a slow tempo in the studio that you have to be extremely tight when they played it live. And their shows were a little higher tempo. It's a shame that the only times they played it Plant's voice was poor at best. When the song is played by Page and Plant or just Plant alone in the 90s or later it's at a much faster tempo.
  19. That could have been it but I coulda swore there was more into it and more specifics about it since they grew up knowing some of the members of Sabbath. I am going to be gone for the next week so I won't have the time to find it now, but I'm positive he talked about how they would go to sabbath shows just to heckle them. And since Sabbath and Zeppelin basically formed at around the same time it had to be in between Zep shows.
  20. Judas Priest opened for them in Oakland if I'm not mistaken. Back to Sabbath/Zeppelin, I think I remember Plant telling a story somewhere about how he and Bonham would go to Sabbath shows just to taunt the band and say how much they sucked, I'll try and find the exact interview right after I post.
  21. Led Zeppelin would lose nothing if they were in a game. In fact they would probably gain more young fans. But that being said, it won't happen.
  22. There are different parties. I myself am a Liberatarian. The problem today is that the republican party is now is pretty much the democrat party of 20-30 years ago and the democrat party now is pretty much a communist party. There's no real small government proponent anymore so the government gets bigger everything else gets smaller.
  23. Next up is Cassius Clay. I've heard a rumor than he is basically at the vegetative state of his disease.
  24. I think the problem is no longer the president. It's the system. Our government is a liberal one, even on the republican side. They are owned by big business and can't get out of it.
  25. I don't want to ever see Zepp on rockband. And Page won't allow it.
