Guitar Wars

The latest to receive a pseudo-imaginary trophy as Featured Blog here at the Robot is my good friend Steve of Motor City Times. It’s a long overdue honor, however dubious it may be.

Our government is steadily growing in size and complexity. Lucky for us, Steve, along with the other rabble rousers and Right Wing Conspirators who gather from time to time at The Resistance, stand ever vigilant, watching and documenting the increasing encroachments of our liberty.

You owe yourself an honest look at where the true enemies of liberty make their camps, as the battlefield of ideas is an ever changing landscape and one would be wise to not discount Steve’s assessment of the state of our great nation.

For me, Motor City Times is a trusted source of news and info from not only Detroit and the state of Michigan but from across the fruited plains and across the globe. Steve has a sharp eye for detail as one can see from his thoughtful analysis and commentary on a wide ranging field of study, from economics to climate change to music and of course any manner of automobile and motorized contraption one can fathom. Steve’s site is definitely a worthwhile pit-stop on the Information Superhighway.

Be sure to bookmark Motor City Times. Visit often, and leave a comment or two. Bloggers like that sort of thing.

Also, be sure to give Motor City Times a place in your blogroll, if you haven’t already done so. You’ll be glad you did.

Never met a communist he didn’t like:

Obama finds kindred spirit?

“I am glad to meet an Indian communist. I am told that communists have been part of the (Indian) political mainstream,” Obama told CPM Politburo member Sitaram Yechury at the Rashtrapati Bhawan banquet as they were introduced and both shook hands.

He might just as well have said “fellow communist.”


And while Obummer is yucking it up with his new found commie friends and Bernanke is devaluing the dollar, the World Bank president lobbies for a global currency system:

“The world needs a new global currency-setting system”, – World Bank President Robert Zoellick has stated in Singapore.


Tell me again why this is happening?

Are they really that good at what they do? I suppose it depends on how you look at it. If for instance, you think 22% actual private sector unemployment and bailing out underfunded pensions and banks and insurance companies all on the public’s back are all good things, then by all means, let’s pay government employees twice what the average private sector employee makes. Never mind the fact that they don’t produce a single marketable product, which is what an economy should be based on.
Sorry, broke off into a rant there.
Here, wash your ears out with some really nice guitar work, newly discovered today.
My favorite YouTube comment:
this song really got to me! but the part after 5:16 sucked ;-)

A favorite of mine for ump-teen bazillion years, David Lindley is a musician’s musician. If it has strings on it, this guy can play it.

Have a great Friday night, folks!

Here’s a studio cut my band used to perform back in the stone-age.

And BTW, I’ve added a link to Bob’s excellent post of a day or so ago “Rush Sounds The Clarion Call” to the Prime page on this blog. It is most worthy of your attention.

If you know any lilly-livered Republicans who are raising the “I’ll work with Obama” flag, you might just pass that link along to them.

Repeal Obamacare!

Prosecute those in Congress that broke the law passing it!

No compromise!

No surrender!


Time for a Robot to rethink his head cover and eye wear choices.

Found at View From The Porch thanks to A trainwreck in Maxwell.


Also, for no particular reason, here’s a Boudreaux joke from the inbox:

Boudreaux suddenly quit drinking, took a bath, quit chasing women, quit his poker games and stopped laying around. He started cutting the grass around the church, even painted it and was faithful to be first to attend on Sundays!

Father Thibodeaux asked him what about dis wonderful change that had done overtook him.

Boudreaux explained, “I heard “Crisis in the Gulf” and if He’s dat close,  I wanna to be good to go!

[Amen, Boudreaux. ~bot]

Please enjoy the music while your constitution and country are destroyed from within. Thank you.

Took a road trip yesterday and found what might be the highway Bob Dylan sang of in Highway 61 Revisited. We didn’t see no killin’ though.

Oh God said to Abraham, “Kill me a son”
Abe says, “Man, you must be puttin’ me on”
God say, “No.” Abe say, “What?”
God say, “You can do what you want Abe, but
The next time you see me comin’ you better run”
Well Abe says, “Where do you want this killin’ done?”
God says, “Out on Highway 61”

Here’s southeast Texan, Johnny Winter’s version…

Another one of my Austin favorites, Doyle Bramhall II whose father wrote songs for Stevie Ray Vaughan among others in the local and national music scene. I imagine it was only natural for Doyle II to become the accomplished player his is today.
I was one of the lucky few thousand to see the Arc Angels farewell show in Houston on New Years eve some untold years ago. Needless to say, the show was chock full of awesome.
First up, Green Light Girl.

Next, an Arc Angels tune, Too Many Ways to Fall. See if you recognize the other players in this monster group.
