Re: “Richard Shindell on singing about Ayn Rand and viewing America from abroad

In other words, this take-down is nothing of the kind since the songwriter attacks a straw man and lies about it.

Re: “Richard Shindell on singing about Ayn Rand and viewing America from abroad

I would point out that Rand's opinion about tobacco when she wrote "Atlas Shrugged" in the 1940s and 1950s was just that: an opinion. It was not a philosophical principle and is not part of her philosophy, Objectivism. She weighed the possibility of harm against the pleasure that smoking gave her and chose to smoke. Tragically, that did not end well for her although it does provide opportunities for puerile humor at her expense.

Re: “Sean Lennon on his new band with Les Claypool, his parents' jukebox, and Michael Jackson's monkey

Does anyone need to read, write or even think about Sean Lennon? No, no and no. He does not need press or music reviews or to perform or anything else.

Re: “The band that got away

As a teen from upstate NY in the early 70's I found an 8 track tape of their original recording and bought it out of curiosity. Been a diehard fan ever since. Saw them play whenever possible. I was never disappointed!

To this day Tasty is a fixture in my car's CD player.

Rat on.....

Re: “Rage against the TPP

TPP & other Global Corporate Treaties/’Arrangements’

The TRUMP Card; White Knight NOT ‘PROTECTIONIST’?
Protecting the ‘harmless’ citizens of US from Corporate ‘America’ using ‘trade’ arrangements to Sue the ‘harmless’ Americans by way stocks in Corporations of TPP, TTIP Global Corporate Associates’ is NOT ‘protectionist’. Will Trump Triumph & get the appreciation of the voters?

Is Clinton betting on TPP kick-back by way NON-RETURNING CONGRESSMEN.
NON-RETURNING CONGRESSMEN using LOBBYISTS to SECURE POST POLITICAL JOBS Have to PASS TPP, TTIP, et al with IMPUNITY, &/or, for Future ‘Considerations’? Constituents to Pay for LOBBYIST’s Treaties/’Arrangements’, or, What are Various Ways Voters can Prevail upon the Secret Relationship between the Execs. of Political Parties & Lobbyists and ‘Your’ Congressmen?

TPP, TTIP, et al; If the 'Agreements' are anything other than a schedule of reducing tariffs then it’s not about ‘Free’ Trade but ‘Enslaving’ Trade; Shifting Corporate Liabilities on to the ‘harmless’ citizens?

Not all Trade Deals are Good, or, Bad; but what are the Elements of a 'Very GOOD' Trade Deal.

TPP, CETA, TTIP, et al, Just in Time to protect Monsanto’s carcinogenic ‘Round Up’ Herbicide & other Toxic products & Foods; the Future of ‘Legal’ Poisoning of harmless Customers starts NOW. Taxes Increased as Gov’ts pass Lawsuit Costs to harmless citizens? Further Cuts to Gov’t. Services.

TPP & the other Global Corporate treaties/'arrangements': Global AGRI-CORPORATIONs/Lobbyists SWEAR that some farmers may benefit.

Do the other signatories of the global corporate treaties/’arrangements’ understand how corporate Canada is superseding gains by Native Canadians by continuing to avoid its liabilities via its information deprivation (eg. The W.A.D. Accord & The MERKEL {Chancellor of Germany} Letter) & trying to pass its liabilities on to its global corporate associates, their citizens and the citizens of Canada?


The ‘EMPIRE’* STRIKES BACK against Huge Indirect Taxes to pay for Secret Liabilities & Hidden Costs via Tribunal’s (‘Death-Star-Chamber) Punitive Penalties?
*the ‘harmless’ citizens of the Anti-Global Corporate Economy
Stockholders sue their neighbors & in-laws via their TPP, TTIP, CETA, et al, Global Corporate associates.

TPP & Japan, et al; ‘The Submission’ to The Supreme Court of Canada paves the way for Expanding & Improving the basis of the Yamada led ‘Sword & Shield’ Counter-attack Suit against the Japanese gov’t., Corporates America & Canada, or, their ‘harmless’ citizens, et al. TPP & other Global Corporate Treaties/’Arrangements’ signatory Gov’ts. in Conflict of Interest.

TPP & other Global Corporate Treaties/’Arrangements’ PREVENTING MULTI-BILLIONS of DOLLARS of LAWSUITS to be paid by the ‘harmless’ Voters/Taxpayers.
OPPOSITION to TPP, TTIP, CETA, et al, REDUCES FEAR; "the (EU) Commission’s fear is a multi-million euro lawsuit from industry”*

Why haven’t the Citizens of the Global Corporate economy been given enough info to balance the potential for Employment versus the amounts they will Certainty have to Pay for the Secret Liabilities & Hidden Costs of ‘Trade’ Tribunals’ Punitive Penalties (Indirect Tax), etc.?

Re: “The Sheepdogs get back to where they once belonged

I heard them on Spotify in 2012 and have been a fan ever since. Will have to wait till September in Chicago to see them live for first time. Hoping this band grows in success and sticks together for years to come. Cheers!

Re: “A farewell to the Ancient Mariner

English Simon Here. From Manitou now. Yes I was one of those transplants who wondered in there one Saturday night about 10 years ago and came across A Newsense Gig. The warmth and acceptance I felt straight away overwhelmed me. Plus the awesome Music that blew me away. Iv'e always had A real passion for Music and Dancing. Over the past 10 Years I have made so many good friends, Heard soo many great artists perform ,Danced until my bare feet ached, Enjoyed soo many great bar staff, Had so many good laughs, and made so many great memories too numerous to mention. My hat with all the pins on it is already crying for the "Last voyage". Thank you Manitou, and thank you Ancient Mariner for "The Long Strange Trip It's Been". " So many Roads" brought so many of us "Weirdos and Freaks" together on those Saturday Nights. I love you all. " Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart". One last quote from Jerry Garcia. "Don't cry because It's all over, Rejoice In the fact that you actually got to be there." God Bless Newsense, Joe Johnson and The Legendary ANCIENT MARINER.
Namaste..... Simon Keyte.
