  1. 43. Bob Dylan “Every Grain of Sand” (from Shot of Love) https://vimeo.com/359215525 In 1981, Dylan was just finishing up his trilogy of Christian albums, and this Gospel infused tune from Shot of Love is widely considered his best song of the era- though I personally favor “Precious Angel”. Don’t get me wrong though, “Every Grain of Sand” deserves all the accolades it has received over the years.
  2. It’s exceedingly rare when I’m forced to side with Donald Trump- but in this case I do. Over the last 5 years the RNC has made a TON of money off of Trump- money that they never have would raised if he wasn’t there. The attraction is him- none of the other names in conservative or Republican circles has ever had Trump’s money raising powers- there’s not even a close second. And they’re continuing to use his name for their own purposes. If he disapproves of something they’re doing, I think he has every right to put a stop to it.
  3. 44. Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” (from Bella Donna) https://youtu.be/H5i7j0VhEHw The music to this song was written by Mike Campbell (lyrics by Tom Petty) and his lead guitar and melody is so distinctive. It reminds me very much of “Refugee” in how the verse and chorus keep rising to a crescendo. This is simply great classic rock.
  4. You may be confusing me with someone else. Sometimes the Republicans make huge mistakes- I think they are now. They don’t always make mistakes. When they 100% opposed the Affordable Care Act, that was a very smart move that won them the next 3 elections. Calling it “Obamacare” turned out to be brilliant. What they’re doing now is stupid.
  5. No of course not. But it’s rare that any of those bills was something that fit with democratic ideology. I was expecting, for 4 years, for Trump to propose an infrastructure bill. I still don’t know why he didn’t. Had he done so, and had the Dems rejected it, they would have made the same mistake I believe the Republicans are making now.
  6. I think they should have said “there’s a lot we don’t like about the bill but it’s necessary overall so let’s do it.”, which is exactly what they said about the earlier bill. I don’t think it would have cost them politically at all and it would have helped them in the coming election cycle. My firm opinion is that they did not oppose this bill due to any real issue concerns (given the previous bill that would be highly hypocritical) but because they are still attempting to appease the Trumpist, extremist elements of the base that want them to oppose anything and everything that Democrats ar
  7. When Obamacare passed it had less than 50% public support. This bill has 75% support. Big difference.
  8. No I’m not painting it that way. I’m saying this will be perceived that way and it’s a bad political decision. IMO
  9. You DON’T get it. I don’t want the GOP to be bad and I certainly don’t think they’re evil. They’re making poor political decisions at the moment IMO. I wish they wouldn’t.
  10. I changed the title to have an overall discussion. I think the Republicans have made a huge mistake not turning this into a bipartisan effort but that’s on them. This is a huge legislative accomplishment for Biden. It’s also, sadly, probably his last legislative accomplishment, at least for two years, unless he can somehow convince Manchin and Sinema to do away with the filibuster. The Republicans should go in with Biden on an infrastructure deal but I don’t expect they will. As it looks now, the Republicans are going to spend the next two years complaining about cancel culture, a
  11. 45. Duran Duran “Girls on Film” (from Duran Duran) https://youtu.be/KCjMZMxNr-0 Obviously these guys were mostly about image but they could be an excellent band at times amd this is one of those. This is an excellent tune and for me personally it somehow avoided the annoyance factor that came with so many of their other hits being so incredibly overplayed. The video is considered a classic. Sumo was never such fun!
  12. I’m not really into sax. I know this is heresy but- I love Springsteen but not so much Clemons. My favorite sax of all time is “Joeys On the Street Again” (Boomtown Rats.)
  13. 46. Kim Wilde “Kids in America” (from Kim Wilde) https://youtu.be/r_GH6M7cUq4 I forgot how coked out she looks on the video. Great song though.
