You have to do your "JOB".......that's why they call it a "JOB" - or sometimes it's also called "WORK".........This is also why they do not call this particular task "PLAYTIME". For better or for worse, until you go into business for yourself, welcome to the r...

4 years of John McCain is guaranteed to make George Bush look like a genious........For God's sake, we cannot afford another paranoid, bumbling idiot in office.

Although it looks like Obama is on his way, I think it would have been interesting to have a woman's perspective on running the country.

This might be off topic, but I really believe Ace Frehley could beat the sh*t outta Bob Dylan.

I also prefer good passive speakers with a load of power going to them versus self-amplified speakers.......You'd think that from a physics standpoint, the powered would sound better with the components being bi-amped & such; but, I've just never liked the tonal qualities of the powered ones I'v...

If someone has ever picked up a guitar because of a certain band, then that band was influential. I still believe that KISS was one of those few bands that influenced every-day kids to play guitar or sing. I also think that their music was actually underrated because of the over-the-top theatrics &a...

KISS had as good of a run as any band in the history of music. They were huge & they had great riffs - they could play. They were solid for their first 6 or 7 years & just got stale after that. A lot of huge pop stars play music today because of KISS......In my opinion, they were every bit a...

Garr, We've all sat down to go to sleep & heard a riff in our head & by morning - it's long forgotten......Damn I hate that!!! If you are losing ideas & riffs, the best thing to have is a small hand-held recorder at your immediate disposal.....I have a cheap Sony Cassette recorder that h...

Definitely go "righty"..... It's difficult to get your fingers to cooperate either way & if nothing else, you'll be able to choose from an entire wall of right-handed guitars whenever you decide to go shopping for a new one - versus looking at 1 left-handed guitar that's been on the sh...

Do you think part of the reasoning behind NAFTA could have been to "cool down" unions in this country?

Just throwing out a question.

I agree NAFTA = bad thing; however, the original NAFTA agreement stated that any company that did go overseas had to pay their employees a minimum of 60 cents for every dollar that they'd have to pay an American worker for that job......GW went in and eliminated the minimum pay requirements which re...

I'd love to be able to blame Wallace.....but, I cut & pasted it & evidently it didn't work real well.

Regardless, once again, thanks for the open discussion.

I am also a homeowner & will save some money on property taxes; but as a whole, after you do the math, you might find that because of the increases in other areas, you might actually be in the "red". "My man Mitch" stuck it to a lot of people......a lot. You'll see a lot of g...

How is Hillary going to affect your paycheck?.......seriously?......My man Mitch - a Republican - just screwed over a whole lot of people with his nifty little property tax deal.........seriously, do you rent or own your home? Anyone who rents just got a 1% sales tax increase and possibly a 2% incom...
