As Long as I'm Talking About it.

If you know any young folks attracted to the guitar, you might turn them on to Tommy Emmanuel. He is the best today and Chet was his Idol. He plays live shows all over the world every few days or so, so there's a good chance he'd be in your area at some point.

Lots on Youtube..

Notice he tunes the guitar a few times while playing.

I Actually Tried to Play This When I Was 13

Listening to this recording on my Dad's record player. I even slowed it down to 16 speed from 33 1/3rd, as we had that option on our player, to hear all the notes. Too many notes....



If I remember correctly, it came from this album, Hi-Fi in focus.

The album cover picture was the result of a contest and there were a couple versions, all from the same guy, who used a very long open shutter camera picture of a light bulb hanging on a wire, taken from underneath, that was swinging in a circular pattern like a pendulum, eventually coming to rest near the center point.

Chille Eartthquakes

Here's a great site to see real data regards earthquakes instead of what the 18 year old on the news desk gives you.

That link should be zeroed in on the Chille quakes. I've been using this site for a long time, and I've never seen a set of quakes like this. The big blue square fairly centered in the group shows an M8.8. Man, that's a big quake. For anyone that doesn't know, a 6.o is a big quake. A 7 is not 1 point larger than a 6, it is 10 times a 6. Therefore an 8, being 10 times a 7 is 100 times as powerful as a 6.0. Being this was 8.8, that would be about 1000 times as powerful as a 6.0. Unimaginable.

Any quakes in red mean that they just happened within the hour. I would imagine there will be a lot of aftershocks.

Bipartisan...

You know, over in England the Parliament has always spoken their mind. They're not worried about offending someone by presenting what they believe to be the truth and in the interest of the citizens. And that's not rude at all. Speaking what you believe to be the truth, even though you may know up front that it will offend, is the proper thing to do.
Honesty is the highest compliment you can pay someone. If you lie to them it means you don't care about them. Or not enough anyway.
But mainly, there are often huge issues at stake in sessions of Parliament, or the Congress, affecting many millions of people.

One of many examples out there in youtube.....
I hope you notice the parallels to obama. Liberalism does not boast uniqueness does it.



I personally support screaming, hair pulling, and fisticuffs when necessary, and what I hate most of all is this idiotic milquetoast, light beige, politically correct, let's not even offend the stupid dumbasses for fear of losing one Effing stupid dumbass vote, not serve the people who hold this country up with their toil and taxes paid, Bipartisan BullShit.

The Democrats don't do it! Stop lying to yourselves thinking you going to lose the ignoramous vote. You've already lost it, you have Nothing to Lose!
You'll probably pick up some votes. Liberals seem to support low class ignorant bullshit.
The most watched program on TV is World Wide Wrestling ! What does That tell ya! Now act like you care about this country and its people and kick some freakin liberal - socialist - loser - worthless government money wasting program ass in Congress !

Oh, and please don't miss my very short post below entitled Socialism. Thank You for your support ;-)

Socialism

What belongs to everyone belongs to no one.

The EPA

Language Warning

Why is the EPA more powerful than any governmental office ?

They're the reason we don't have Nuke plants, and why we're still burning coal and harming the environment. They are the reason utilities that burn coal were still polluting so much, at least back in the 80's and 90's and maybe still today.

Utilities went to them and said we can clean up 80% of our output. The EPA said, no you gotta do better. The utilities said, Ok Fuck you then, we're not doing anything. The EPA is the biggest obstacle in America cleaning up its act, which btw is pretty freakin clean no thanks to the E.P.A...

Fuck the EPA. Like Unions it is too powerful and needs to be ratcheted back in a big way.

I suggest a pressure valve that allows the government to step in and say "Your mandate puts an unreasonable demand on the economics of this country/state/county and/or puts an undue burden on the people by restricting their access to a resource, and as a result your mandate is ignored."

Who gave these assholes so much power? Probably Jimmah Carter. I'm not going to bother looking it up because I don't care about the historical details.

Oh, and let's not forget the Department of Energy, whose mandate it is to Reduce Our Dependency on Foreign Energy (Read: Oil). 40 years later, and billions of dollars tossed into this commode of a government bureaucracy each and every year, and they have accomplished Jack SHIT; scoring 100 out of a possible 100 points for any given Liberal Program (As scored by liberals).

Oh well, let's enjoy the winter. It's only going to be around another 4 or 5 weeks ;-)

Man, the Chet Youtubes are Dwindling.

Here's Chet with a beard and a tune that people seem to enjoy, including me.



There's a studio version in the right sidebar that sounds a lot better and is well worth clicking on, but as Peter Sellers said in the movie Being There "I like to watch"

The New Toyota Lawnmower

I Must Feel Like Bashing Obama This Week.

If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?

If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?

If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?
Update* If George W Bush had Bowed to the Mayor of Tampa Florida, what would you have said about it? (Yea, rhetorical Question, we know you'll never admit it. heheh)

If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?

If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?

If George W. Bush had misspelled the word "advice" would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoe as proof of what a dunce he is?

If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?

If George W. Bush's administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11?

If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans , would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?

If George W. Bush had created the positions for 32 or more Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America, would you have approved.

If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?

If George W Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had spent more than all the Presidents combined since George Washington, would you have approved?

If George W Bush told the American people that none of them (not just the ones calling Pakistan) have no claim to privacy regards their cell phone use, would you approve?

If George W Bush had mentioned he'd been to 57 states and had 1, 2 or maybe 3 more to go to, would you think he was a genius ?

If George W Bush had said Corpse-Men, regarding Corpsman of military medical fame Twice while having the help of two teleprompters would you think he was a dumbass ?
Also - how can the Commander in Chief of the military not know how to pronounce the name of one of the most revered (by their peers) and crucial of all military position members?

If the Harvard Professor was white and the policeman black, what would you think about George W Bush saying "I don't know anything about the situation but I know that policeman acted stupidly".

If George W Bush had been awarded any Nobel Prize would you not be pounding on your keyboards until your fingers bled ?

If there was video of Russians refusing to shake George W Bush's hand at an event attended by he and Medvedev, would you not assume they intentionally punked him because they regard him a a buffoon ?

Did President Sarkozy ever say George W Bush was Naïve ? That's quite an insult coming from another head of state.

Wasn't Obama going to mend fences with 'our allies'. Instead, he's insulted them or they've treated him like the buffoon he is.

What would you have thought and wrote about Laura Bush if she were to have had 22 personal assistants. Or walked around in $5,000 tennis shoes. Or walked the dog on the White House lawn dressed like a bum.

This is like an all negative real life case of 'The Jefferson's Movin on up - to the East Side', though the Jefferson's had 100 times more class than both of these buffoons.

Do you feel 'Had' yet or do you need to have your noses rubbed in it some more ? You'll have three more years of this ignorance, arrogance, and incompetence by Obama and the vast majority of his cabinet, czars, and staff.

What a Dweeb Obama Is.

Like if he shuffles the Dali Lama out the back door, China won't notice. Like a little kid putting his head under a pillow and thinking no one sees him.



Caption: Exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama (L) walks out the doors of the Palm Room of the White House by trash bags waiting to be picked up due to delays from the snow storms of last week in Washington, DC, February 18, 2010 after meeting with US President Barack Obama. The Dalai Lama appeared in public at the White House Thursday and said US President Barack Obama was 'supportive' in a meeting that drew angry protests from China. AFP PHOTO/Jim Watson (Photo credit should read JIM WATSON/AFP/Getty Images)

From Here

If I'd have had the Dali Lama at the White House while China was pissing and moaning about it, I'd have had him out in the Rose Garden, and would have escorted him out the Formal Entrance making sure news cameras were ready. Obama is a bigger embarrassment to this country each day that passes.

I'll Bet You Didn't Know About This.

The Rotating Hexagon Cloud at the north pole of Saturn. Note that 4 Earth's could fit inside the sucker.

It's been there a long time. It was imaged by Voyager 1 and 2 more than 20 years ago.




And a brief write-up that pretty well summarizes it.


I'll bet even Al Gore couldn't explain it.

Frank has explained it though. So he tells me.

A Step in the Right Direction

Obama supports Nuke plants.

Great.

Now if we'd get our heads out and do breeder reactors, which consume their own fuel, we'd have no problems at all.

The 'problem' with breeder reactors is that half way through the process of consuming their own fuel, the nuclear material is weapons grade. So what. There are so many rogue scientists milling around the middle east that make it so easy for people like Iran to get nukes if they want, the prospect of some group attacking a nuke plant in the USA to steal weapons grade nuclear material is absurd.

The material could be booby trapped - and tracked - so easily it would make your head spin. Try crossing the border after you've had a medical test where they inject you with a small amount of radioactive material to proceed with the test. You'll be talking to them to get across.

Socialized Medicine Failing - Especially for Those Who Need it Most

And Obama and his Idiot Tools in Congress, Like Pelosi say "Yeah, Let's Do That !"


Same deal in Canadia.

America is/was the Greatest Country on Earth and the current administration strives for guaranteed failure. They are breathless to achieve failure like it's some orgasmic candy machine.

Of a service critical to the health, physical and emotional well being of 300 Million Americans in their twilight years, AFTER having their retirement money stolen.

- BEFORE trying - or simply IGNORING perfectly good strategies set forth by the Republicans that could Easily fix health care and leave it in the hands of private enterprise, the only environment that promotes improvement of products and services.

Profanity falls short.

From Jim McMahon's Blog

Language Warning Of Course.

How did I miss this George Carlin Vid?

As I commented over there, I believe every word with the exception that a person can still do quite well, but that's quite an exception.

I Really Shy Away From Talking Obama

Because it's like shooting dead fish in a bucket with a shotgun. But let's do a quick review since it's been a little over a year.

- Virtually No Diversion from the plan and activities of our military in Iraq. None.
- Gitmo still active and full of filthy vermin.
- Escalation of the Afghanistan operation and more money 'down the drain' as far as the parasite liberals are concerned.
- Nothing happening with the climate change BS. HopenChagin was a waste of time and money. And WTF was pelosi doing there? And the other Dems who went to party and get laid on the taxpayer tab.
- Cap and Trade DOA even before the A.
- National Health Care. No. Way.
- OOOOH for Three on the elections so far.

That about covers the big stuff that all the morons voted this teleprompter Jesus into the White House to do. There is slim to no chance any of it will ever see the light of day and slim just kicked the bucket.

SO. Liberals ! What do you think of the boy genius ? I'd honestly love to hear your screaming, twisting, Palin scratching, spittle drooling variations on the Denial Theme right here in the comment section of my very own blog.

John Murtha

Too damn bad you didn't apologize to those Haditha Marines, that you condemned as Guilty, who never ended up being charged - (All charges Dismissed) - before you took the big ride. Supposed to be innocent until proven guilty in America.

That and your other criminal behavior(Abscam), dereliction of duty (working for the American people Not), and aid and comfort you provided to the Heathens of the enemy side of our latest fence with your constant blubbering about GW Bush and the prosecution of the war against creatures straight from freakin hell, should have you getting an attitude adjustment of major proportion in the afterlife even if only temporary.

C-ya C-ya hopefully not.

Lets hope the racist ignorant morons (Your Words) of Western Pennsylvania elect someone with some character, class, and conservative values.

My God, the Planet is in Trouble !

Thanks George. Beautiful Stuff.

I play this about every 6 months. I have it downloaded to my PC and backed up. The ending is a little funky, but I sure agree with the first 95% or so.
