“Where is the Congressional action to create jobs?
That's what Americans need.”

“And what the Democrat policies destroy. You won't get jobs until we have a conservative Republican administration. Dems are clueless on the economy.”

“Good list.

But once again: Where's Ry Cooder?
And speaking of Herbie Hancock, years ago the Kennedy Center missed the chance to honor Miles Davis while he was still alive.
chance to honor”

“Yeah! But sadly, the Kennedy Center has never given one of these honors to Miles. Hard to believe. The man was a musical revolutionary... and popular too. "Kind of Blue" is the best selling jazz album of all time.”

TLNana on Dec 9, 2013 at 08:19:29

“Miles Davis death in 1991 stunned and saddened all that knew him and his music. Kennedy Center Honors are for the living, the year he passed the honoree's were Roy Acuff, Betty Comden & Adolph Green, Fayard & Harold Nicholas, Gregory Peck, and Robert Shaw, not a wildly Jazz kind of group. It took an act of congress in 2009 to pass a symbolic resolution recognizing and commemorating the album Kind of Blue on its 50th anniversary, "honoring the masterpiece and reaffirming jazz as a national treasure".(Wikipedia). Yes it is too bad Miles was never an Honoree, there are many masters of there craft that will never be honored because they are no longer alive to receive the honor.”

SteakFarmer on Dec 7, 2013 at 12:42:07

“Helping?
Are you kidding?
How exactly do handouts with no expectations to correct the situation constitute helping.
People ask me, when I want to take the cows to slaughter how hard is it to get them in the truck.
I say it's very easy. I start by putting corn in a small pen. They become lazy and eat the corn because it is easier and stop going into the field to graze. Once they are all in I lock them in the small pen. Then on the day they are to go to market I back up the truck and place the corn in the truck. Now with no options they go readily for the corn in the truck. I have to do little work and they have volunteered to go to slaughter.”
