This week, some time-Travelin’ Music

Although Keith Richards’ autobiography, “Life,” inspired last week’s Travelin’ Music selection, I missed my opportunity to post a Rolling Stones number as the kickoff song. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever used a Stones song to start the weekend merriment, which is an oversight that I’m honor-bound to correct.

So here’s a great if politically incorrect cut from the early days of the Stones, 1966 to be exact, with Mick in all of his preening, prancing splendor. Fitzgerald once wrote that “Everybody’s youth is a dream, a form of chemical madness,” and that’s more true of these guys than of most of us.

Of course, from time to time, they also compounded the chemical madness of youth with many other less natural compounds.

IN keeping with Jay’s earlier thread, I offer this;

And to think that Jimmy Page once said he wasn’t that good of a guitarist.

And Jay, the term immigrant implies that the person wishing citizenship is willing to fulfill all of the lawful requirements of the host country. People that just walk across the border are illegal aliens and as such they should not enjoy all that America has to offer (which is not that much anymore). Watch out for the tornadoes tonight Atlanta.

Excellent Josef. And to think that at one time these very same words could have been applied to Americans (Reference the “Grapes of Wrath” and the Dust Bowl). I hope that one day there is no such thing as a slave class, which the South American illegal aliens to the US are. They are only here because they perform something for the greedy farmers and corporations which the sorry assed people of our own country are not willing to do anymore and which their employers are not willing to pay a decent wage for. And we have the gall to sit around talking about the lack of jobs. My father was at one time or another a janitor, a wood stacker in a hellish saw-mill, a security guard and a farmer and I respect him immensely because of this because he did whatever it took to pay for his family to eat and have a roof over their heads and to educate his children. Americans aren’t willing to that anymore. They want everything for free because our society has promised them that they deserve not to have to work with their hands and to let someone else do the manual labor. Thus we now have a disposable workforce of illegal aliens to supply that labor and it is costing us a fortune in social costs which we cannot afford because there are just too many of them. Of course, America isn’t alone in this. Every “advanced” society and culture eventually becomes lazy and looks to import people of less fortune to do the unpleasant jobs for them. And then those very same societies and cultures fall. Look at history.

It’s stories like that which makes me wish that there were lots of perp walks going on with these banks and the whole financial mess.

New Horizons, founded in 2004, was particularly dependent on construction and development, with more than half of its loan book in that category at its peak in 2007, said Chris Marinac, bank analyst with FIG Partners in Atlanta.

“This was a bank from the outset that was neither safe nor sound,” Marinac said, criticizing its dependence on real estate development.

Heads should be rolling and prison cells should be filling. Taxpayers are out of about another $100 million because of these shenanigans. Georgia can claim to be #1 in at least one category, bank failures.

Matti left a “MESSAGE FROM MATTI” last week on this blog. I think she is a little disillusioned, at the moment, but I have faith in her innate spark for life – that she will return to give her lively, unique thoughts before too long.

Here is another song by Paul Simon, called “The Afterlife.”

Matti and others, enjoy Simon’s fun with forces beyond our control – and a most poignant ending.
(Have a little fun with the circus, Matti, don’t retreat from it forever – you are missed! I consider you on a break for renewal!)

Well, I’ve been worried about Matti ever since she wrote about some old flame trying to make up to her and then she disappeared. And the only thing we’ve heard since was the message that hate was no good. At least that message told me she was still alive. Heck, she might be tied up someplace. You get kind of attached to a sassy thing like her and then when she goes quiet you worry.
