How about you ?
Chet advised a teenage Dolly to complete her education. She did and thanked him for the advice later. Dolly spent some time with Chet in his last days and they had some laughs and tears too no doubt.
June 20, 1924 – June 30, 2001
Chet Atkins was one of the most influential musicians to come out of Nashville. And yet, he was much more than that. Atkins worked on the business side as well, spending some time as an artist manager as well as Vice President of RCA Records‘ country division where he remarkably signed Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Dolly Parton, Bobby Bare, Connie Smith and Jerry Reed to name just a few. As a producer, Atkins made hits for Elvis Presley, Perry Como, Eddy Arnold, Waylon Jennings and many more. The sounds he created on record are credited as being one of the foundations of what would become known as the Nashville Sound. Atkins’ style of playing was itself influenced by the great Merle Travis and is one of the most difficult sounds to imitate, earning him the nickname, “Mister Guitar.” Over the course of his career, Atkins won fourteen Grammys, nine Country Music Association awards, and the Billboard Century award. He was also inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, invited to the White House to play for every president from Kennedy to Bush Sr., and had a stretch of highway in Georgia named after him. Atkins died of cancer on June 30, 2001.
These Climate People Need to be Put Into Slavery In countries with Few Resources and a Critical Need for Power....
At risk is about $600 million in equipment sales for Bucyrus, of South Milwaukee. Without the loan guarantees, for an Indian power plant developer, Bucyrus says it will lose the equipment order and up to 1,000 U.S. jobs will be in jeopardy.
The Export-Import Bank denied the loan guarantees because it did not want to finance a fossil fuel project that would harm the environment.
I realize this is a bit of a stretch at this early hour in this latest massive ignorance event called global climate change, but wars have almost always been started over resources.
Make it difficult or unnecessarily expensive for countries who look to other more technologically advanced countries to supply methods/construction/equipment of power generation and there could be hell to pay.
For any of those countries reading this, may I respectfully suggest you take out the U.N. First ? After that, I'd call open season on anyone driving a Prius, or a VW Bug with flower decals on it, and extra points are awarded for those in vehicles proudly displaying the Obama bumper sticker. Match up a Prius or a VW with Flowers And an O sticker and save a dollar on your next box of ammo.
Having executed this task, I'd say it would only be about 6 months before your country was flooded with super efficient fossil fuel powered power plants, delivering that sweet electricity to your Air Conditioning, Entertainment and Work Saving devices by a country returned to its former glory of common sense capitalist excellence, the United States of America, Now Flooded with capitalist pig conservative voters and politicians.

In addition to yesterday's introduction to how the UK is not going to be offing quality of life services, like new knees and such, here is a new one about how they are going to drastically Ration Care for Common Children's Conditions
And another somewhat trivial sounding notice about how folks will now be paying 10 Pounds to see their doctor.
We all know how that stuff works though don't we. Today it will be 10 pounds, and in a couple months, it will be 20.
But apparently, some absolute drooling morons in the Democrat Run Media, and others around the world, think the NHS is far superior to what we have in the USA. Of course, the USA has the highest survival rates for all types of cancer and the highest percentages of people getting quality of life care like new knees, work on varicose veins, etc etc.
Hey, maybe the people that write these articles are using what health care in America will be like under the obama/pelosi/reid stuffed down our throat - you'll probably need to get by on pain pills once you're 62 - Non-health care plan for comparison purposes.

Although the Government has pledged to defend spending, trusts are preparing for a period of 'unprecedented retrenchment' to make the £20billion savings within four years, he said.
'Already NHS commissioners are drawing up lists of health interventions that must be decommissioned. Cut. Stopped. Not done any more.
'These lists are clothed in the language of evidence but they represent target reductions based on cost and volume, sometimes ignoring the potential benefit to individual patients.
Honestly, the level of propaganda in the 'news' is on par with the crap you read in North Korea.
Yes, Read more you moron supporters of obama's health care system because this is your future. And we've been telling you this for the last two years - before you cheered the communist democrats taking this major freedom and service away from you. Yes, Democrats because not a single republican, not even a RINO, voted yes for this Bullshit.
So, years from now, when you can't get healthcare, don't look to whoever might be in the White House and say - It's His Fault! because it's not. It's obama, pelosi, reid, and all the rest of these bastards who did it to you in 2010.
How did people get so freakin stupid.

And it occurs to me that Soccer is the Section 8 housing of the sports world. All you need is a bunch of guys to run around in little shorts kicking a ball that costs a buck toward nets at either end of a flat grassy area (or dirt area if need be) that cost maybe 30 bucks if you're hard up.
This is the epitome of everything that is on the liberal agenda. Living 'with Less' is the theme that is at the heart of this pathetic 'sport'.
Oh, I think the game is fine for school kids. I am saying it's absurd to think it's even a national level sport, unless you happen to be a nation that can only afford balls that cost a buck and nets that cost 60 bucks and a flat area to play on that's Free, unless you're like the United States and somehow you've slipped into a perverted universe and tax payers actually Freakin Vote Yes to donate their hard earned money to build the physical accommodations that allow you, as private business sports team owners to have your infrastructure supplied for free while you rake in hundreds of millions of dollars, and then have the freakin gall to come on TV late in the season and proudly state you've 'donated' 50 grand to the freakin United Way. Which is like a pimp flipping a nickel out the window of his limo at a wino while he is chauffeured through Harlem.
Back to Soccer.
Do you see how the goalies hold those freakin balls ? They got em against their chest with both arms around it, elbows down, hands pointing up, in an X pattern like little girls hold their school books. I wanted to scream "Get this pathetic Nonsense off of my American Airwaves !"
Many times throughout the nonsensical activity, someone 'hurts their toe or their finger' and the camera zooms in to 'display their agony' in its pathetic search for drama in a drama-less scene.
The most popular player on this game that I was casually watching was a black dude that looked like he had the business end of a mop glued to the top of his head. He didn't play well at all. He seemed entirely untalented and so I assumed he was the featured player because of his physical Diversity.
The vast majority of what I see in this game, is boys running around in little shorts usually knocking the ball out of bounds. It is at this point, a player retrieves the ball and from just off the field, and using both hands, like a girl, tosses the ball back into play.
My head is spinning from the realization of how almost any activity performed by the most untalented of cast, could easily take soccer's place in the world.
I realize this is America's future. Pathetic displays of non-performance and mediocrity at best, combined with a general acceptance that this is all Awesome. So awesome that everyone in attendance has to continually blow their horn, and in concert sound like many swarms of harmless bees.
I realize I'm soon to be surrounded, in any venue where 'sports fans' congregate by guys screaming once a week or so, when someone makes a goal, and it will always occur to me that these folks are so hard up for 'sports' that they'd watch dung beetles pack elephant manure into little balls and roll it up a hill, as long as Al Michaels was calling the action and Las Vegas was taking the action.
Oh Yea! No Cheerleaders ! But just as well, I'm assuming as they'd all probably look like Elana Kagan anyway !
This is the world sucking the United States of America, down into the Slime of Medocrity. Make no Mistake, as the asshole frequently says.
Here's one fine example of what happens in America. Top Fuel Dragsters. They're currently traveling 1,320 ft (1/4 mile) in 3.8 seconds. I happened to be channel surfing the other day and saw Kory M do it in 3.75 secs. It's not for everyone, but this is one sport that screams America. Best of the best. Bleeding edge, life on the line, no soup for you if you're not the best.

In the meantime, what a truly great story reposted at Blackfive about one hell of a Dad.
Tissue and lump in throat alert.

The Dems are actually trying to explain obama's unbelievable level of incompetence or evil away by saying he wouldn't allow Bobby Jindal to build sand berms to protect the fragile Louisiana marshlands from the oil that was certain to arrive because they had to do an environmental study of the effect of the berms first.
That's exactly like saying to the doctor who is about to treat you for a Heart Attack that is happening right now, that you want to go out and get a 2nd opinion and you'll come back in a week. It's exactly like that.
I can understand your typical drooling liberal with one had in their pants, and their eyes rolling around in their sockets to spout something like this, but this is the Dem 'leadership'.
Then they don't want to drill anywhere off shore, even the vast fields in shallow water that they are trying to claim don't exist anymore or worse yet, have already been tapped. And we know they don't want to open up any more oil fields on land either.
But there is no plan and no alternative to getting people, products, and everything else in motion in the USA for the next several decades without gasoline, diesel, jet fuel.
That's Exactly like quitting your job before you have another one in an environment like today where there is a realistic 23% or so unemployment. Hell, it's even worse than that.
Speaking of which, given that the Dept of Energy's mandate is to reduce our dependence on foreign oil and we have now eliminated All possibility of doing this (leaving aside the fact that they've only made Negative progress over the last 40 years anyway), it's time this department is closed because there is nothing for them left to even pretend they do.
The level of mis-information coming from this administration and it's drooling media whores is on Par with the crap that is printed in North Korea for its citizens. It's Exactly like that.
One NK story I remember is that they tell their citizens that there is a 100 foot tall cement wall, 90 feet thick at the border with S. Korea and that's why no food can get to them.
Or how about Dear Leader Kimmy shooting 11 holes in one his first time out to play golf.
How's that any different from obama claiming there is no offshore oil in shallow water or that he and his staff have been on this from day one and have done everything possible? It's not !

Though it does lie about 2300 light years away in the direction of the constellation of the Unicorn, it may one day provide the power that the dust bunnies for brains liberals so crave, finally ridding us of this awful filthy dirty greedy dastardly crude oil.
If we can only learn the secrets of how to tap into its power.

Fairness is an illusion.
Fairness is nationwide Section 8 housing.
And why not include some Blind Faith ?
Oh, and yea, Same cat as in the Spencer Davis vids a couple posts down.
And same cat in the Traffic tune.
And, I just noticed, it looks like Steve Winwood is wearing the same red pants in the Traffic pic as he is in the Blind Faith vid. fwiw.

Seinfeld said that only 3 to 4% tops of the population are dateable, and that's absolutely right.
Update: Ok, I didn't write this to offend. It is merely an observation. As in, if the majority of voters were frogs, they'd vote a lot more frogs into office. That's all I'm sayin.
And, There are some seriously intelligent people who are not commercially good looking, but for my money, most of them seem to have an axe to grind with society - for obvious reason - and I don't think being in positions of supreme power is the best place for them, generaly speaking. By the same token, some commercially good looking people have serious flaws as well.
Finally, as Opus points out regards the 4% dateable comment, "there is someone for everyone", in fact many someones. So, each of us has 3 to 4 % to choose from. I hope this clears things up :)

(I exclude all the defective biological life forms masquerading as humans of course)
Seems I've got to have a change of scene
'Cause every night I have the strangest dreams
Imprisoned by the way it could have been
Left here on my own or so it seems
I've got to leave before I start to Scream
But someone's locked the door and took the key.
Ya' feelin' allright?
I'm not feelin' too good myself
Well, ya' feelin' allright?
I'm not feelin' too good myself
Well boy you sure took me for one big ride
And even now I sit and wonder why
And when I think of you I start to cry
I just can't waste my time I must keep dry
Gotta' stop believing in all your lies
'Cause there's too much to do before I die.
Ya' feelin' allright?
I'm not feelin' too good myself
Well, ya' feelin' allright?
I'm not feelin' too good myself
Don't get too lost in all I say
Though at the time I really felt that way
But that was then and now its today
I can't get off yet and so I'm here to stay
'Till someone comes along and takes my place
With a different name and yes a different face.

The vocalist is Steve Winwood, the following exerpt taken from Wikipedia:
Early years: 1960s
While still a pupil at Great Barr School (which actor Martin Shaw also attended), Winwood was a part of the Birmingham rhythm and blues scene, playing the Hammond B-3 organ and guitar, backing blues singers such as Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, T-Bone Walker, Howlin' Wolf, B. B. King, Sonny Boy Williamson II, Eddie Boyd, Otis Spann, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley on their United Kingdom tours, the custom at that time being for US singers to travel solo and be backed by pickup bands. At this time, Winwood was living on Atlantic Road in Great Barr, close to the Birmingham music halls where he played.
From the Spencer Davis group, to Blind Faith's single Magnificent album, to Ginger Baker's Air Force, to Traffic and beyond, Mr Winwood was central to rock and roll for a long time.

obama and his wife are anti-American. For obama to go to Harvard on some sort of exceptional basis such as affirmative action, as well as for Michelle to go to Princeton on the same basis, graduate, aquire high paying jobs doing very little work and still be anti-American is beyond ignorant.
obama ran around Chicago stirring up racism and black power, calling it community organizing and his wife sat on the board of a hospital puling down 6 figure to attend bullshit sessions since that's all board members do.
After all this Michelle has the racist anti-American frame of mind to say that after her husband gets a nomination to run for the White House that she is, for the First Time in her life proud to call herself American is beyond ignorant.
I want my money back. I want all the generosity afforded these buffoons taken back and let them struggle through life carving our a modest place like your Typical Whitey does !
obama and his wife are not intelligent. obama won't release his grades. If he got anywhere near 4.0 territory he'd release his grades. Same story as John Fing Kerry. When it finally did come out we find GW Bush had much better grades than Kerry.
Michelle requires 22 personal assistants, compared to one or none for your typical whitey First Lady. Need we say more.
They made 5 million last year and I'll bet they still have nothing good to say about America.
obama says America is arrogant. No it's not. It's generous. It rushes manpower, food, supplies, medical aid and money to just about every disaster that occurs on the Earth. Its mission statement is to help bring liberty and freedom to the oppressed. Are we proud of that? Damn right you idiot. You're the one that is arrogant you buffoon. Show me any other country that comes close.
And OIL ? Oil, Coal, and Nuclear power are responsible for bringing resources to people all over the Earth who need them, in an efficient, economical manner. Wake me up when your Unicorn fart powered vehicles can take up the challenge.
obama cannot speak in complete sentences without a teleprompter without constantly stumbling through each sentence with agonizing um's ah's and pauses because he has to edit out all of his racist, anti-American thoughts before they make it from his brain all the way out of his mouth.
So, we have an unintelligent, racist, anti-American, communist/socialist for president, who with his administration and the democrat Congress have taken over health care and stolen one of your most precious freedoms - No You Gave it Away! - if it sticks, and is in the process of taking over the energy complex, intentionally allowing the fragile marshlands of the Louisana coastline to be destroyed by this oil leak, the cause of which is highly suspect in the first place.
obama and his democrat media minions are pounding the table about how private industry cannot be trusted to drill for oil (that's the messege), let alone that we should drill for oil in any case. Never mind that they have no alternate plan for getting 100 million people to work and back every day - let alone getting products and services to 300 million people everyday.
Well, to get back on point, the problem is that there are too many people who don't even understand what the job of President entails or should entail. I hear them say things like 'Well, he's trying really hard" (he isn't of course) and all manner of variation on that theme. It started with the campaign - "Hope for Change". WTF? We can elect a janitor and "He'll be trying really hard" while we're "Hoping for Change".
I hear them and the media say "He's got a lot on his plate" while discussing the non-response to the oil leak. NO He Doesn't! He Just Went on Vacation Again ! WTF!
And even if he wasn't on vacation, this is why the White House and the Executive Branch of government employ HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE. SO THEY CAN MANAGE SITUATIONS SUCH AS THESE. All this buffoon needs to do is let them get busy as Bobby Jindal continues to ask as the oil has made it's way to the marshlands of Louisiana.
Look; they know the patterns of ocean current. From day one - over a month ago - they knew where this oil would start washing up. That they did nothing is inexcusable.
That people aren't demanding results and are willing to accept anyone who is trying is absurd. That they feel this way about the leader of the free world (yea ok) is beyond description. Let alone they cannot see these people for what they are.
UPDATE: 6-7-2010. obama has just Ok'd Lousiana building sand berms to collect the oil which continues to travel from the leak site to the fragile marshlands. Unfortunately, this is at the 6 week mark, and way too much oil has already gotten to the marshlands fatally affecting many of God's creatures in the area. Let's be clear about this.
- BP is going to pay for the building of the sand berms and always were.
- BP and/or Louisiana are going to contract the dredgers to actually build the things.
- Government's participation, physically or financially in the thing, as far as I know at present is Zero.
- Can you fucking imagine what the media would be saying if Bush were in the White House, dicking around, taking vacations, playing golf over the last 6 weeks while the oil appeared en mass at the Louisiana marshlands, THEN came out and Ok'd the defensive measure. The same fucking one that Bobby Jindal has been asking for - for at least the last 4 weeks.
- Can you imagine....
- The arrogance is only exceeded by the incompetence, which is only exceeded by the ignorance, which is by far exceeded by the Hypocrisy. Fuck Liberals.

But my wife flips CNN on while we're having a quick dinner tonight. It's Prime Time, not some off hours nonsense that can always show up off hours. Prime Time. And there are two women on the desk talking about the oil disaster. One of the women is probably all of 19 or 24 going on 19. She is this close to crying and she is going off like a rabid monkey about how we have to get off of oil tomorrow (forget about how we all get around and how food and every other product gets to us...) and to my absolute amazement she starts going on about how there are millions of animals dying a slow death from the oil and how we Must ALL become vegetarians to stop this torture of animals ! I shit you not.
I'm not kidding when I say liberals have the minds of children. Hers hasn't developed beyond the age of maybe 12. That she is on a major news network on prime time with this unbelievable rant is a sign of our times. One that I want to have nothing to do with.
There wasn't a word that came out of either of their mouths that could be categorized as rational. It was like listening to 5th graders doing a skit of the news.
