GOING DOWN UNDAH! (WRITING WITH ARTISTS, NASHVILLE TO AUSTRALIA
I think we're done with Cricket. The team is off having tea anyway
Actually, I think we should stick with cricket. Arguments about cricket are less likely to inflame the passions than those about history. Unless, it's about cricket history LOL. The "bodyline" tour of 1932-33 can still get Aussie blood boiling. Now, India or Pakistan to win tomorrow?
I may or may not be an enigma
"I would have thought that what separated the north and the south was long gone and so playing dixie would just be of historical interest rather than flaming the fires of the south. Is there really so much power in an old song?"
Only if the current political environment says so....
I am just so tired of the Southern US being so stigmatized. Seriously, the colonists did not invent the slave trade! People don’t seem to realize just how young America is... and that America was born out of rebellion against tyranny and slavery. That spirit of rebellion is still evident, alive and well in our Constitution but, because of current political bias and agendas, it will not be allowed its due credit. In fact, those who scream "racism" the loudest are the very same who seek to subvert and destroy the Constitution in the name of "political correctness". The "Dixiecrats" just moved to DC!!! Racism in America has always been a political hot button... that’s why the political "progressives" can’t let it die. Without racism many political agendests would have no platform at all. Now, I'm well aware that I'm only one generation removed from the assassination of MLKJr, but since I'm not a racist, it’s easy for me to believe that should be enough!
Well, I'm going to refrain from any other political posts here. One of the things that is making me nuts is that EVERYBODY is making EVERYTHING political. That's the problem. I'd prefer to keep these topics on music alone if possible. Start other threads for that and lets get back to what this started out as.
Thanks. Happy Fathers day to all you Fathers or people with Fathers.
