They do seem to stop a lot of terrorist attacks.They seem to do a remarkable job at that. I think they just need to be careful about letting potential wackos off the hook, and do as much as possible to deny wackos guns.

Does that mean BB guns get registered then?

.gov kills a lot of innocents as well. I mean look at the entire MENA area.

Well, as the amount of cruft aggregation increases so does the size of the haystack. For it is the power and glory that the spooks want to know everything innocents have and that only. The spooks should only keep track of a smaller haystack. If you have 0 violent crime raps , no obvious flakiness like being in the wacky ward, and are a US citizen, then 4th amendment needs to apply absolutely , which means 0 diskie dumpies in Utah.

True that. Higher ratings = more $.  Besides there's effectively only 6 networks  Talk about what was old is new again.

Pop and rock music is mostly crap, most of the time. But the 4T knocks the horrible 3T out of the water. There has never been a culture so devoid of any value as popular 3T culture in Amerika.

I was doing better too, especially in the earlier part of the 3T. Has nothing diddly squat to do with the quality of pop culture in those years. As for awesome music, give me harmony, melody, rhythm, good singing, tight instrumentation, awakening prophetic lyrics, and a mood of grand inspiration and hope, above the 3T screaming, yelling and angry bombast any day. Party or no party. Playing that 3T shit at a party methinks would just bring the vibes down. Might as well have your party in a junk yard. Thank God for JB. Watch "What Do You Mean," now there's someone who knows how to throw a party! 3T culture to me means the new age. Yes, now there was a culture.

And like it or not, there will be no 1T without successfully going through the 4T. It will be a fight between those who want progress, and those like Classic Xer and Galen who want to go backwards. The forward side must win, or there will be no 1T to enjoy at all. And sorry, I haven't a clue what TYVM means.

Nope. I've heard enough of it to know it stinks. Generally-speaking of course.

I mean, it's so obvious that it is always so amazing to me that I have to point it out.

The Democrats have to much on the line and far more to loose than gain. Soldiers are more connected to their families today than they've ever been in the past. You should wake up and come to grips with the reality of living today. You do understand that the war would be a war against the progressive Democrats. Defeating the progressive Democrats in a  war isn't very hard to figure out once you're familiar with them and understand their weakness's. The Democrats have a lot of weakness's. BTW, it isn't a wet dream on mine. It's just a reality that I'm able to identify and see very clearly.
Playwrite is exactly right; that's what I predict too. It may last longer than one Waco, but that's basically what will happen. Defeating the progressive Democrats will not be so easy if they have the support of the people. They will, in that case, have the law and the army on their side. I don't know what any of this has to do with how close soldiers are to their families. What relevance is that? All people are close to their families. Progressive Democrats just want a fair society with a strong middle class. Conservative Republicans want an unjust society owned and operated for the benefit of the 1%. So once the spell of the trickle-down and self-reliance slogans is fully broken, there's no doubt which side the people will be on. And there's little doubt about which side the young people of the 4T (as opposed to those of the 3T) are taking.
 A party whose support is largely based on government support would be easy to defeat. Like I said, progressive Democrats have far more to loose than gain. Me, I'd just cash out and stop paying taxes. What's fair? Is it fair to pay people who are less productive who have less capabilities higher sums of money? Is it fair to pay more productive people with more capabilities higher sums of money?

We will defeat your mindless slogans about "a party whose support is largely based on government support." You can see how far that slogan went with how Romney fared with it. You lost. You will keep losing (not loosing; learn to spell, right-winger). Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton will win, and you will lose. As far as you not paying taxes, go ahead; make my day. Good luck with the IRS. You gun nuts and free market dog whistlers are going to lose. It may take a while. But we will keep pressing for economic equality and opportunity by clamping down on guys like you who prey on workers and don't pay taxes. Your Donald will lose, big time. He will discredit you, since you guys are all the same. The non-productive extortionists whom you support will have their wealth expropriated and given back to the people from whom they stole it. You will lose. And if you guys start a war to fight back against your inevitable defeat, we will crush you. We will grind you into dust, put you in jail and blow you away.

You will just have to see about who wins when they do. I would not go making predictions on who wins. You can only guess. I would be worried if I were you....for either one that wins.

You know that I am a prophet, and that I know what's going to happen. No, it's only one side I am worried about.

That's your decision. All of us here know that already. My preference of my economic circumstances is just one part of my preference of the 3T vs. 4T.  Of course all of the board here also know that I like a lot of 3T music because it reflects my edgy side. It also confirmed the joy of economic freedom I had and party hearty I did back then.

No argument there wrt to him able to party hearty.  If I were on his party plane, I'd wait until he's all good and stoned and switch the music over to some awesome 3T stuff. Easy task, when yer stoned, you really don't care about much.  I know. Big Grin

The generational alignment will change and there will be a 1T of some sort. It could either be a 1950's Happy Days one or a Neo Gilded Age.  Either way, Xer's are badass and don't give a shit. We'll be getting old and riding off to the sunset together.

No one gives a shit about the "real" music which is just your preference. Anyone could choose an era and say that is real music. Because you experienced the 2T when you were a young adult that is what you choose over 3T which would have been a smack over the head for you. You have said over and over again that you hate 3T music. WE KNOW. Nothing is going to change 3T music THANKFULLY and it cannot please everyone. Just enjoy your JB music and leave us to enjoy what we enjoy without you slewing insults about it over and over. We love 3T music and no one gives a shit what you consider good music and what you do not. Reason being all you have are insults for what we like. The frigging arrogance. You would not appreciate people insulting what you enjoy so be respectful of other preferences.

You have said over and over again that you hate 3T music. WE KNOW. Nothing is going to change 3T music THANKFULLY and it cannot please everyone. Just enjoy your JB music and leave us to enjoy what we enjoy without you slewing insults about it over and over. We love 3T music and no one gives a shit what you consider good music and what you do not. Reason being all you have are insults for what we like. The frigging arrogance. You would not appreciate people insulting what you enjoy so be respectful of other preferences.

Oh ha ha. You are so predictable. Just more nonsense to ignore. Duh.... how about not inserting your insults and just let Rags and I talk about it? You don't get what I say, so why don't you just f-f-fade away?

I will stop the insults when you show a little respect for differences. That is what you are all about right? You are disrespectful about the 3T. Constantly. You have no trouble calling it shit. As people here enjoy it it is a personal attack. Want the personal attacks to go away SHOW SOME RESPECT. No one expects you to like that music but live and let live ERIC.

I am expressing my honest opinion, and nothing I can say can destroy the 3T or its so-called music. There is no personal attack going on by me. YOU are taking it personally. Don't. Just disagree; I am fine with that, and I have no doubt that people disagree.

The 3T was a horrible era in many ways. That's just the way I see it, and the facts and the evidence speaks for itself. I'm just glad it's over, and we have a chance (maybe a 50-50 chance) to move onward and upward again. There is no personal attack in that statement. Unless perhaps you are attached to Ronald Reagan; maybe. But I am not going to say that I respect music that I don't, just to be nice to you. As I say; generally-speaking. Some 3T American pop and rock is OK; just not the best. Another one bites the dust.

Yes I know Tara; that's just my opinion. And I still see no reason to change it. Too bad if you don't like that. If I ever hear a song that's as good as the best from the 2T or the 4T, or even the 1T or 4T before for heaven's sake, I will say so. Probably not from a song you that post though, given your continuing disrespect for me. But who knows.

"Respect for differences" HA! Last I heard, there was no demographic or SJW category called "the songs I like and the song I don't" Personal or group identity has nothing to do with it at all. Certainly not me being a boomer. There's plenty of differences of opinion among boomers where music is concerned.

We know you think it is a horrible era but there is no need for you to keep on repeating it. Yes of course i take it personally. No i will not allow you to just walk all over it and say what does that hurt, don't take my punches personally. That is school kid bully tactic. Don't like my attacks on you? You are taking it personally. Don't. Just disagree. I am fine with that. Seems ignorant and cruel doesn't it. Cruel of the other persons feelings. I will stop going on about your insensitivity to others tastes when you learn that it is hurtful to others. I have no idea what you are on about regarding Ronald Reagan. Keep in mind i am a foreigner and he was pres when i was an infant.

I do not expect you to say you respect it.....unlike what i do. I say to others i respect it even if i do not like the song. My nana had a saying. If you have nothing nice to say say nothing at all. I am reacting to your blatant attacks on other music. You do not have to like it but there is no need to be nasty. You can have your opinion but if you use it to bash other music which you do constantly that is just plain nasty and i will call you out on it. I disrespect those who disrespect others.

Why not just put me on ignore? Give up your ridiculous attempt to change people. This forum is about issues and opinions, not about the behavior of the participants. Stop trying to change it. Or just be ignored.

If people are going to move on, they have to learn that the 3T era was wrong. And yet Americans still say by only 2% that they will vote Republican for congress. That is horrible; they have learned nothing. No, it will have to be repeated over and over until they get it.

It is wrong to insult people correct? The 3T was created by people. So it is safe to say you are insulting a part of who we are. This has nothing to do with politics. Stick to the subject which is music thank you. We are discussing music not politics when it comes to your disrespect of 3T music. Because it is a repetitive attack and constant it must be addressed. Music, we love it or we do not. Think of it like a straight person or a gay person. Differences. Got it? The straight person likes certain people but the gay does not like what that person likes. You can respect both right? I know you can because you mention you are respectful of the differences. But when it comes to music you fail with showing the same respect for differences and tell us we should just brush off the insults which you do not think are insults. Think of it this way. It would be rude to disrespect a gay person for what they appreciate correct? Same thing here. It would be rude to disrespect music a person enjoys...and need i remind you calling certain music shit or garbage etc CONSTANTLY is disrespect. It is your opinion but so would be an opinion of a homophobe who disrespects gays constantly. Can you understand this? Can you understand that similarity. We may be different but you should be respectful just as you would a gay or a straight.

I qualify my statements by saying "generally speaking; some times it's OK," etc., and "I am open to any music." That's as far as I can go with it. My opinion is mine, and necessary to say. When culture declines, prophets speak. It's an old tradition.

Saying someone's opinion of some music is like being black or gay, sorry, uh, I don't quite follow you there. Does not compute. Bye.

Of course you don't. It would require sensitivity to understand the comparison as well as the ability to face the truth which is you do not want to admit you are quite insensitive to differences whether it be in music or groping. To you it does not matter how a person responds. What matters is how you think it should be interpreted. You need to work on that matey and i will continue till it gets through. I assume old dogs can learn. Just think about it.
