UAW eventually owning 55% of Chrysler stock and the U.S. Gov owning the rest – if that isn’t socialism, what is?
Sir- With due respect; better the workers who build the cars and US taxpayers than the miserable leadership since Iacocca.
I pulled the Columbine show today-After reviewing, thought it focused too much on killers-hold a thought for the families, hard day for them
"Play your part in music history.
We called for professionals and amateur musicians of all ages, locations and instruments to audition for the YouTube Symphony Orchestra by submitting a video performance of a new piece written for the occasion by the renowned Chinese composer Tan Dun.
Finalists are selected by a judging panel comprised of the world's most renowned orchestras. Vote for your favorite instrumentalists on YouTube from February 14-22.
Winners are announced on March 2nd and will be invited to travel to New York in April 2009, to participate in the YouTube Symphony Orchestra summit, and play at Carnegie Hall under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas.
All the Tan Dun submissions will be compiled into a mashup video which will be premiered on this channel on April 15th".
Submitted for your approval- here we have a man using the screen name of "Hugh Jee", writing about the things that interest him- sports, books, films and a massive doses of politics, on his little corner of the blogesphere, a creation with the somewhat warped name USELESS TRIVIA AND MINDLESS RANTS. After a small dent in readership after its creation in the fall of 2008, the little blog grew steadily but slowly through the election cycle of 2008. And after the election of President Barack Obama, the interest in his blog ceased. His readership began Christmas shopping (never to return); Hugh Jee made a big Thanksgiving dinner, dutifully got his flu shot, and three days later he got the flu; and upon recovering he too went Christmas shopping, vowing to return after the first of the New Year....and when he did, his readership was gone. And so was his inspiration. He didn't have George Bush or Sarah Palin to kick around anymore. Like BB King used to sing...."The thrill was gone".
Notes.....Angel McCoughtry called out ESPN's Kara Lawson for her lukewarm feelings about Louisville, and really came across like The Louisville Lip, Mark II. Earth to Angel....Kara Lawson has won a NCAA championship at Tennessee, a WNBA championship with the Sacramento Monarchs, and an Olympic Gold Medal in Beijing last year...just focus on St.Louis and the Oklahoma Sooners, and Stanford or undefeated UCONN down the road. And please, the whining and the negative body language and facial expressions aren't going to cut it at the next level.
