Re: “What is your desert island record?

Surrounded by sand, how about the Jayhawks Tomorrow The Green Grass? Europe '72 and London Calling are not bad, maybe Exile on Mainstreet?

You need to add a *rimshot* sound effect to make sure.

Liking The Clash has nothing to do with embracing or rejecting any political position.

They rock...or rocked, rather...and that's all that matters.

Re: “What is your desert island record?

Europe 72 - Grateful Dead...or London Calling by the Clash...or Bitches Brew by Miles...damn this is hard!

...though if I'm all alone on the island, one of those Ohio Players album covers might come in handy.

The Best of Billie Holiday. In the studio she put her soul into the recording in all its aching sadness and unrelenting joy. When Billie starts singing it is as if she enters the room with the music. I would listen to it only during the times when the loneliness became too much to stand - kind of like calling that good, old friend who is always there when you are down - never judging.

Anything with thick liner notes; since without electricity and a turntable I'm not too sure what good a record would do.

Re: “What law would you pass?

Oy- Well Oy, I just think that any kind of personal donation, be it individual or corporate, opens up the electoral system to corruption, among other factors. There has to be a way to fund the two parties plus the independent ones in a way that's equal and impartial. Donations unfortunately are just a bad way of handling it.

Mark - Good point about the Euro political systems. I don't know either how's it worked, but kudos to them for atleast trying to level the playing field.

Soros spends much more influencing elections than the Kochs, but they both pale in comparison with the unions.

Re: “What law would you pass?

There we go again, wealth envy, no surprise. But the irony is if you look at the supporters of the left, they are as, if not more wealthy than the supporters of the right. A look at the richest members of congress will show they are over whelmingly Democrats, just the facts.

The best I saw was a picture of Hollywood types speaking out against "income inequality", someone took the time to add up the dozen or so stars income, and it was $800+ M. Speak of inequality... and irony ....

If you think paying $50,000 to get a 30 second spot on prime time is "free speech" you too have been absorbed into the collective.
