Re: “Tucson Marches for Equality

What real reason is it you took this little walk. Just exactly what rights is. It that you feel are not already given to you? Because when privilege is talked about the only ones that I see that have this thing are females and minorities. But I won't even go down that minority bit. Cause I'd never get an answer over the cries of how racist and bigoted I am but then you would not have to answer me would you. In fact let's be honest none of you that would have voted for Hillary were doing so because of her non existent policies. Most of you voted for her for the simple reason she was just that, a she. And you don't want equality, just like All Sharpton and his followers,you want to be given something extra because the American male didn't see fit to say all men and women were created equal. And anyone who does not think like that is a woman hater, or a bigot, or racist. Yet it's not ok for someone to be derogatory to you because we as men must be "gentlemen". Well girls (and I use that term lightly her) when you show me that there'll be no more double standard, no more coming into a work place and demanding equal pay when you can't do the work. No more bullshit of crying discrimination when in fact you lied on the application then you might get equality. But you really don't want that. You are the ones that should be called the deplorable. Btw I am a misogynist. In fact I detest 90% of all females in today's world. Not because in some cases your better then me. Not because some have turned me down. But because of your double standards.

Re: “Vintage Vinyl

Linda wouldn't have had any way to know this, but she became a "star-in-waiting" with 'Different Drum'. For those of us who were paying attention then - and who had their ears to the ground, she was welcomed with open arms. It was never a matter, for the listening public, that she'd end up being a 'one hit wonder'; she had already walked through the door. It wasn't a matter of 'if, it was a matter of 'when'. All it would take was another 'successful' 45, and in 1970, with 'Long Long Time', she came closer. Then, everybody knows what happened in late 1974 with 'Heart Like A Wheel' and 'You're No Good'. But the point is, she already had a seat at the table in 1967; it was just a matter of time. I'm so happy that she stuck with her career. All of us are the richer for that decision.
