  1. How can a woman who as attained the Governorship of a State be a setback to women's rights? You would think that a woman who proved that there were no limits to how high of an office in her own state would be championed by the women's rights people. it makes no difference how high she has climbed and i applaude her for her achievements. She is not the only woman governor in America. however, just because she is a woman does not mean all women support her as vice president. some do some don't. I don't. she scares me. But, so did Nixon. Has she tried to change abortion laws in her own
  2. ENOUGH ALREADY!!!! I've not been here in a while but I have to answer this silly, probably unregistered, never voted in the USA before, uninformed sad excuse for a human! I first voted in 1972 and have voted in every election since then. I was/am a Hillary supporter since day 1---I mean year one--back in the early 90's. I still am. However, I must do what is best for my country. I looked at McCain briefly but he was too conservative for me. Then, when he picked Palin as his VP candidate, my mind was definately made up to vote for Obama. Palin scares the stuff out of me. She will se
  3. oh my wildest dreams........lying on a bed under robert plant!
  4. Wow, I should be so young! Got ya beat -- saw the boys in 72!
  5. most excellent photos. mind if I ask what kind of camera? Thanks
  6. Yo Yo Memphis They are playing Nashville July 19 at the Sommet Center. I bought tickets online through Ticketmonster Thursday night. Check it out.
  7. Jimi -- Jimmy -- Eric I've had this discussion many times as I'm sure you all have. Jimi -- yes, he was taken too young. IMO he set the standard by which all future guitarists would be "judged" (for lack of a better word). The craziness in his own life came through on his playing and it was magic. Eric -- they don't call him slowhand for nothing. One of the most boring concerts I have ever seen. Saw him once in the mid 70s and that was enough. Jimmy -- Exciting, innovative, always fresh and playful. He could play rock, blues, and jazz flavored guitar. He is, IMO, truly a master of
  8. I've seen the Stones 7 times mainly because they are the only band to ever come to Memphis (or so it seems). Last time was Little Rock on their last tour. The Stones are awsome as a "flash back" band. I have to say, IMO, that they peaked about 75.
  9. Sorry about your troubles EV. I can totally identify. 2007 was a bad year, father died, brother died, lost my job, lost my health insurance-- and I'm bipolar. Find a good therapist -- it's always good to have an objective person to talk to and cry with. Friends and family want to help but most of the time they are too close. With most depressive episodes, you will know when the time is right to re-enter the human race. Is there a university medical center near you? I've found them to be very helpful. Peace. C
  10. You hit the nail on the head. The birth of R&R changed music forever. Artists were striking new ground and going places not imagined before or after. Part of it was the chemicals I'm sure, but they were innocent and safe then which is strange because the music was (and is) wet, wild and free. Where I live you never knew who you would run into in clubs or who would sit in with the house band. Music was ALIVE. Oh, you left out one major contributor--Frank Zappa.
  11. I was visiting Dallas this summer and my friends were listening to some off the wall country station and I swear I heard the Dolly Parton version. Nearly choked! LOL LOL LOL
  12. QUOTE (lzatlanta73 @ Feb 7 2008, 10:24 PM) it doesn't really matter anyway -- big business runs the country and the president is just a figure head. In what aspect does big business run the country? I'd rather they run it than some of the jokers in this so-called thing we calla government Oil companies, haliburton, Vietnam, both gulf wars, need more? No matter who is elected, they are just a figure head for all their cronies. This has been going on for most of the last 100 years (probably more) but more so in the last 50. Yes, I am very cynical but I've seen too much corruption
  13. I was 17 when the voting age was lowered to 18 and was so happy to be able to vote -- this was during Vietnam and our thinking was if you are old enought to die for your country you should have a say--I still believe this. I have voted in every national election since 1972. As to people being too old to vote--never. There are very few oldsters that should not vote due to whatever and their families know who they are. As to driving age, yes, we should ALL be tested periodically and not because of age only. We all know people of all ages who should not be driving..right?
