About Me

Looks like we made it through the elections...let's try to dominate in 2014, shall we? Progressive policies are just what the doctor ordered.

This storm apparently gets more severe as analysis continues.

Been a while since I have posted, but I thought you folks would want to see this. Thankfully, the chaser who shot the video was at a manageable distance, and had time to vacate the area. Sadly, there were losses of life amongst the chaser community on May 31st. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

This one is for Hirax fans

The lead singer of Hirax, Katon, will be phoning in to Tuesday night's podcast of Metal Thunder Radio!!!! I can't wait to hear what a thirty year metal veteran has to say either, but maybe you would also enjoy some of the archived podcasts featuring other "underground" artists of hard rock and heavy metal at: http://www.metalthunderradio.com/index.php

Wondering about guns

In the days following the President's big speech outlining his intentions to do something to curb gun related murders, and after taking some time to think about who really wins and loses if any kind of changes in law really occurs, and then marveling at how crazy some folks get on both sides of gun control, I had a few questions plaguing me.

I decided to throw a few questions out there for consideration.

Such as:

-How many Senators and Congress persons are in the NRA's pocket?
-When will we get a full time ATF head, and in fact, a more robust ATF?
-How the heck did we get to the point that it is standard practice to run all legislation past an industry's lobbyists for approval and notes, prior to nomination?
-Why is a right to own an object more precious and sacred than protecting American lives?
-Is the NRA objection to Universal background checks more to prevent a slowing in the growth of gun sales, rather than a defense of the second amendment?
-What can the voter do against the NRA's indisputable sway over Congress and the Senate?

I can't answer most of those questions, but maybe there is something more tangible to achieve in the near future, particularly by voters. Read the rest @ http://livenudepolitics.com/?p=4624

Tipping at holiday time, for or against?

I am for it, modestly of course, if someone has really been of service to you in your day to day life, even if it is just providing a friendly greeting. Opinions?

British, Canadian, and Aussie friends of mine are gobsmacked,

that we have tragedy after tragedy of this nature, yet seem to lack the will to do anything about it really.
Less easy access to automatic weapons, more help for those most likely to do these horrible things would be a a start, I think. I don't pretend to be smart enough to come up with a one size fits all solution, but something needs to be done about mental illness and access to the guns designed to quickly kill many.
In my neighborhood we have not had mass shootings like this, thankfully. But, the increase of crimes committed by mentally ill (homeless usually), like the rape of an elderly Bird Watcher in Central Park, or the father pushed on to the subway tracks to die horribly really highlight the need to care for each other. Yes, changing the way we treat guns and people is needed--it will cost money, it may cost some freedoms. But won't it be worth it to try to prevent the slaughter of innocents?

Is this like West Side Story, or the Outsiders?

Ok, so I have not been a DU'er for forever....less than a year in fact since my first post. I know some folks don't count the time some of us lurk before chipping in for star membership.

Can someone explain to me what all the Meta/Lounge freaking out is about? It so doesn't look very sane or constructive to me. Meta and the Lounge used to be a fun break from the seriousness of politics. I just don't get it. Maybe I don't spend enough time here, but I just don't alert on anything I disagree with, I comment OR just move on if it is not of interest. Who has the time for all this drama and upset?

Rush! Inducted at last!!!!

I have to say, it is long over due!
Grabbed from CNN: 02:31 PM ET
2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees announced

The new class of inductees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has been announced, and it includes rockers, the Queen of Disco, a group of hip hop pioneers and a band whose fans have long been clamoring for the honor.

In the performer category, Heart, Albert King, Randy Newman, Public Enemy, Rush and Donna Summer will receive the prestigious induction. Lou Adler and Quincy Jones will receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award, which is given to non-performers.

A few of those selected to be part of the 2013 group had been nominated before, but none have had the fan support for entry into the hallowed Hall of Fame as first time nominees Rush. The band had been eligible for nomination for the past 14 years.

Member Alex Lifeson told CNN after the group was nominated back in October that the honor meant a great deal to his group's fan base.

"For our fans, it's very, very important, and we feel great for them," he said. "We're at the next stage and we'll see if we're actually inducted. If so, we'll support it in every way we can for our fans." Read More:

The Barometer Bob Show & Hurricane Hollow needs help!!!!

The Barometer Bob Show & Hurricane Hollow is in jeopardy of shutting down, for good, come January 27th, 2013.
This show has helped so many people over the years with getting valuable weather information out to the public.

For the next week (Dec 11th-18th) all proceeds for Scott McPartland's 2010/2011 Storm Chase Adventures DVD will be donated to the show. I repeat all proceeds for the next week from the sale of Scott McPartland's 2010/2011 Storm Chase Adventures DVD will be donated to save this wonderful show!

To visit Hurricane Hollow go to barometerbob.net, and see how great Barometer Bob is. You will want to help!
