    For all the undereducated righti wingers: gasoline prices in the US have NOTHING to do with the amount of American oil produced.

    So why produce at all

    Rat–if Cathy makes as many grammatical mistakes as she does…AND she can’t analyze things in even a rudimentary way, AND she purports to have gotten an MBA, what does that say about you???

    I never do this , but I cut and paste you about. Find what is wrong.

    What is a dipstick

  • ninja

    @ 1966…………………..Thanks!…don’t remember last time herd that song. Never would’ve guessed it was that old. Reminds me of a time between 2nd – 4th grade I brought Nazareth ‘ hair of the dog ‘ to music class and my teacher played in class. She was a hippie. Lol

  • 1966

    one more for you ninja. here’s one of the greatist gutiarst of all time.

    Nice. The teacher had no problem with the lyrics “now you’re messing with a son of a bιtch”? :grin:

  • TZCA

    I was in Home Depot tonight and heard “I Want To Kiss You All Over” over the store speakers. Good Lord.

  • TZCA

    **giving 1966 a rotten look**

  • AppleStinx


    My favourite Ten Years After song used to be “Love Like a Man”, the album (long) version. “I’d Love to Change the World” got me totally confused once I became political, I still can’t tell on which side they were on. :lol:

  • 1966

    here’s a suggestive version of this song dont watch it tzca or hillbilly.

  • TZCA

    lol, thanks for the warning 1966

  • 1966

    that is my favorite song too

  • AppleStinx


    I once was at a supermarket when they blasted John Lennon’s “Woman is the N– of the World” through the store. In a foreign country but it still felt weird hearing the N word in public.

  • TZCA

    “Woman is the N– of the World” ….. in a foreign country.

    That would be strange.

    I was in a gold souk in Dubai once while in the military, and I don’t think anyone there spoke decent English. They decided to play one of Trent’s more vindictive metallic versions of “I want to #### you like an animal.” My mouth dropped at what I was hearing while all these people and their kids happily shopped around for rugs and gold trinkets.

    I don’t think I had ever heard “Kiss You All Over” until 1966 was kind enough to post it for me while him, Rats and myself were sharing some manly lovin’ :mrgreen:

    I think I’ve heard twice since then. I’ve been jinxed, I tell ya.

  • ninja

    Because she sas the music teacher and a hippie, you would think she had listen to the song before ( it was a hit by then was my moms 45 ), not sure.

    I use to hear the N word all the time…I used to drive buses in southcentral LA….watts and compton too…lol

  • Stan T

    Today, I officially became a publishing company…hopefully the copyedit on my book gets completed soon and I find someone to do the cover art…and then I can actually publish something…lol

    I had a friend with a 16 year old daughter, who is big time into Twilight, read my rough draft…and she said it would sell to her friends…I hope so…lol

  • TZCA

    lol Stan T,

    I live in southern cali and sometimes go into LA. I know exactly what you’re talking about.

    I wanted to read some posts and throw in a few comments. Good night all.

  • TZCA

    Stan T,

    Best of luck on your book.

  • ninja

    @1966…………………Like most of the greats, they always get asked about Jimmy. Since they booth at woodstock, be it interesting what he had to say, or vice – versa.
