For those of you old enough to remember the great protest songs of the 60's this one should bring back fonda memories. And for those of you too young to have experienced the great protest songs of that era...well just watch and listen and experience the power.

This concludes MSNBC News Special Report for today so far.

I've heard that track in the background of a few documentaries on the protest era of the 60's. To the point surely.

WOW. How do you not notice a dead body in the back seat? I don't care how drunk you are- it would be quite obvious. What is obvious is that the guy isn't "running on all cylinders" as mentioned in the story.

Breaking news: MSNBC gives up. Calling it quits due largely to ugly news anchors and the resulting pathetic ratings. Most of the station's twelve regular viewers express shock and awe and blame it on Bush

Update: Andrea Mitchell jumps off bridge. MSNBC news analysist calls her life 'useless' after reading Fox News Network's Jamie Colby's resume.

Attending the University of Miami International School of Business at age 14, she received a Bachelor of Business Administration in accounting as well as her Juris Doctor degree from the University of Miami School of Law in 1983 at age 22












MSNBC now returns you to our regular programming. Bush bashing.

Bob Dylan's "Times, They Are A'changin". Better protest song. And it has the bonus of not being a particularly good Vegas song.

badge should be able to bumble through these chords too ...

My fav is CCR's Fortunate Son.

April 11, 2011 4:47:05 PM

Bumbled through Fortunate Son in the 60's on my 1938 Martin. Still have it. Then there was this classic which would NEVER make the air on CNN. Of course I have not watched CNN since 2004. No MSNBC since 2006. Run Through The Jungle was better. Who'll Stop The Rain I played also. I could be wrong. Nah. No chance. No chance to see Rodney on CNN.

Nice jsc! Then there were these beauties we have overlooked till now.

Not a real protest song, but worthy of violent protest by any unlucky listener.

I protested this song of the 60's while asking not what I want to do for the entire state of Massecheuttes. Which is nothing. Ozstralia can have it.

rey learned to play this ACDC protest song long ago.

I'm partial to the CNN women anchors- past and present. I'm especially fond of Brooke Baldwin...enough said. I was also fond of Betty Nguyen, but she left for CBS.

Swore off Clinton News Network after the dispicable liberal biased spew they employed with 2004 election coverage. Haven't watched their trash news programs since and never will again. Same for MSNBC. Have not watched since mid terms 2006. Hard to believe for some of youins I guess. Didin't appreciate the Bush bashing and those stations lost my viewership for good. Some of you understand. Fox News Network was created with the sole purpose of putting a badly needed muzzle on the liberal media talking heads. CNN and MSNBC are full of 'em.

Speaking of that perky liberal bias news machine CBS wasn't this prime cut babe hired on by the network to take over for pinhead Dan Rather after He mercifully left.

Unless she had a legal name change, you probably cannot blame her. Blame her idiot parents.
April 12, 2011 3:39:43 PM

I have the 1938 martin. My mother bought it new for $75 that year. It's prety rough as it was played a lot and banged around over the years. Cousin used it to play on a sunday moring radio show his church put on. I played it since I ws nine. The first three frets wore off and were replaced. The body was cracked and repaired. Needs a professional restoration by now. I have fairly nice Fender Auditorium acoustic electric for many years. I play that when I get into the 60's protest songs. Bought a Credence songbook when I was like 13. Learned a lot of their songs that way back in the late 60's. Today if I want to learn a Creedence song I just google the tab and find the song on Youtube. The interwibble makes makes it all much easier in regards to learning a few new licks.

I have been to 'name change' court. A lot of laughs break out and one can't help but laugh uncontrollably when a woman named Bich Pheuck is called up and ask her reason for wanting to change her name.
April 13, 2011 1:41:26 AM

Let me know the next time you go. I'm coming along. ;) 
April 13, 2011 3:51:12 PM

After we sit in the 8am name change request hearings, if we stop laughing by late afternoon and have any energy left we'll head over to Newport Beach. Maybe we'll hit Laguna too. I'll put up a tips jar in the sand and play 60's protest songs. You get phone numbers when a tip occurs. Let your taste in bikini fashion guide you. "How many seas does the White Dove sail, before she ports at Newport and her bikini clad crew sleeps in the sand? And how many..."

Time for today's MSNBC sucks thresd update

Atlas Shrugged opens in theaters nationwide Friday. Its theme is that free enterprise creates prosperity and government control creates poverty. So many conservatives will be flocking to see this movie that theater owners are renting out the lobbies for gun shows.

The L.A. Public Library moved its computers across the room so people watching porn aren't visible to children at the checkout desk. City officials said people have a constitutional right to watch porn in a library. Roman Polanski is starting to think it's safe to come home.

Hugh Hefner celebrated his eighty-fifth birthday Thursday a week before he marries twenty-four-year-old Krystal Harris. He said he takes Viagra twice a week. For Hugh Hefner to take Viagra is like placing a brand-new flag pole on top of a condemned building.

The Saudi royal family announced plans Monday to build the world's first mile-high skyscraper for twelve billion dollars. It's going to be financed with five-dollar-per-gallon gasoline. Americans are so angry over higher oil prices we may fly a plane into it ourselves.


Nancy Pelosi accused the GOP of encouraging Americans to simply give up and die at home. Do we die on garbage day, lawn day or recycling day? California environmental law only permits human remains to be thrown away in the recycling bin if you are a Hindu.

The Masters put on a thriller Sunday starring Australians Jason Day and Adam Scott and Englishman Luke Donald and Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy before South Africa's Charl Schwartzel won the day. They were greeted at the final hole like liberators. It gave U.S. troops in the Middle East the hope that sometimes colonialism has a happy ending.

House Republicans and Senate Democrats finally reached a budget deal five minutes before a midnight government shutdown late Friday. Hundreds of jobs were lost due to the length of the negotiations. It was the slowest night of the year for D.C. escort services

The White House ripped Donald Trump for always harping about President Obama's birth certificate. Democrats did get some good news. Donald Trump just had his annual physical and the doctor told him he was as sound as the dollar, so he can't last much longer.

Libyan rebels rejected a truce proposal from Moammar Khadaffi on Monday. The rebels decided to fight on after they heard that the U.S. government didn't shut down last weekend. Part of the excitement of being a U.S. Air Force pilot is that you never know from week to week whether you are an instrument of U.S. foreign policy or an independent contractor.

The Texas legislature passed a law Friday raising the speed limit to eighty-five miles an hour. They already let you have an open beer in the car and let you carry a gun. The idea is to make life on the highway so much fun you wouldn't think of texting while driving.

Barry Bonds's case went to the jury in San Francisco Friday. There was an innocent explanation for all the syringes, steroids, HGH and blood transfusion equipment found in the garage. He and his kids were just trying to build a Schwarzenegger from scratch.

U.S. Army General Carter Ham informed Congress Thursday that U.S. troops might be needed to help the Libyan rebels. It would level the playing field. U.S. troops are the only ones with the weaponry to shoot down the U.S. planes accidentally bombing the rebels every day.

U.S. Senator Harry Reid stood on the U.S. Senate floor Friday and warned of all the dire consequences a U.S. government shutdown would have on the nation. Younger people don't care at all. He said U.S. meat inspections could be delayed, so Taco Bell won't be affected.

Senate Democrats blamed the massive federal budget deficits on Republican tax cuts Friday in TV interviews. They said the wealthy aren't paying enough taxes to meet the nation's needs. Democrats believe it is okay to be rich as long as you just feel awful about it.

The Architect of the U.S. Capitol told building employees Friday how sorry he was that some of them would be named non-essential during a U.S. government shutdown. It includes restroom attendants and janitors. A history degree just doesn't get you anywhere anymore.

Italy's Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi went on trial in Milan Thursday for soliciting the services of an underage Moroccan call girl nicknamed Ruby the Heart Stealer. She's seventeen years old and he's well into his seventies. The service was an open casket affair

Iran's uranium enrichment factories were identified by a scientist Monday. They are bad for the ozone. The plant converts uranium into gas, then filters it through a centrifuge producing weapons-grade uranium, causing the Israeli Air Force to be released into the sky.

The Treasury Department issued a list of suggestions to taxpayers Thursday to help get their refund checks back faster. It's so user-friendly. This year you can have your refund check sent to you by mail or have the check deposited directly into your gas station.

This concludes today's MSNBC sucks update so far.

I'm in. Let me know when we're doing this. Any nude beaches near by? And by nude beaches, I mean ones where only women between 18-35 attend. ;)

Don't play the electric guitar nude with a decent amp ... the results can be somewhat disturbing with the back of the bridge being metal on mine.

I recommend clothing be worn unless your making a Grace Jones music video.
April 19, 2011 4:25:17 PM

Reminds of the days living with the topless dancer. She would take her clothes off in a rock field. My apartment was constantly full of guys who followed her home. I think she left the club, walked across the parking lot and into the car and drove home without changing after work.
April 23, 2011 1:47:21 AM

No doubt Hef has a few of those mate ... remember to clean your specs before he gets home so you can see what wanders in with him.

My mate Bill had a GF who was a hooker ... she made good money and only kissed him ... she blew me a couple of times tho ... good sort.

Yeah the girl I lived with made good money. Five years after I got her her first job and lived with her, kind of took care of her, she turned 18 and made the big money legally.

What so she became the weather girl ... ??

April 24, 2011 1:42:00 PM

Not quite up to the angst level of Debbie Reynolds but Country Joe McDonald expressed my feelings quite well.

Thankfully, when my number came up it was something like 347; and the draft had ended the previous year. If I'd been a year younger I would have been Grade-A Prime *14* in the induction line.

If you are ranking The Greatest, Robert Zimmerman wins with Subterranean Homesick Blues -- quite possibly the first music video.

And still relevant 46 years later ... :p

Jeez ... your old too.

I'll see if we can make some modifications to the website for you old guys.

Let me see ...

1. dims the screen a bit
2. installs handles on the e-toilet (thats news and leisure)
3 rescripts the ads for viagra, denture paste and insurance
4. turns down the volume
5. muzzles doggy and the rest of the rowdy young ones.

Here is something to sooth you old guys ...

And I suspect if they ever had FZ Night on "Don't Forget the Lyrics" I'd be set for life; so, in honor of Frank (and your thread) ...

I gotta go with this

I don't *** around :lol:

- existing pain reliever ads should be made into pop ups as long as they don't scare us.
- repaint the parking lot lines so we don't park crooked or run through the building when we step on the gas instead of the brake.
- encourage double posting so we don't forget only reading it once.
- display emergency 800 numbers and disclaimers in bold type. After four hours it's painful to find reading glasses much less put pants on and drive to the ER.

Remind doggy and winnebago we are talkin' about my generation baby.

Hey badge, member this one?


Coming out of the surreal, uneventful 60's, it's the peaceful times of that era I remember most. Like the time Washington D.C and every other large city east of the Missi was burned down. Then the cause for peace thing of the era got together to march down my street with fire bombs and guns should anyone even think about challenging their display of peaceful assembly. Helping my father line up the rifles and stack the ammuntion ready to be carried to the attic is one of those uneventful, peaceful times I remember most. I still remember the lesson my father taught me as a result of those woodstock era socialization changing times of peace, flower power and free love. "They are not burning me out of my house. I'll open fire on the SOB's!" Then Carter got in and hope and change spread through the streets like wildfire. Thank god the first alien president never brought his party to full fruition to completely destroy the nation before Obama got his shot. We'd all be in jail facing east on our prayer rugs pissing in a hole behind bars by now. His predessors would still be writing useless peace treatys and planet Obama would be pawning far away alien nations like San Francisco and Massacheuttes where taxes should totally be raised. If the Dems like him so much, let them pay higher taxes and take one up the arse for the gipper.

I remember the crew cut types, and as then as today see the relationship of the so called overbearing "tolerance" those same extremists hold so dear, where no one can stop their "peace" movement, as thats considered inhuman, yet their tolerance is so abundant, and the zealots have never ever tried to take the lead in all the movements, ever.
They can kill in the name of peace those that dont get in line with their "peace? movement, and condone such actions in the name of "peace".
With such circular logic, its no wonder how zealots end up on top, while cooler and brighter minds are either swallowed up in the movements, or crucified as traitors to the human ethic.
Imagine the horror as these "purists" of peace and human consciousness lay on their deathbeds, reconciling with whatever they assume responsible for their very own being here on planet gaia, that alas, theyve become.... the man
April 30, 2011 4:05:07 PM

you old farts still trying to live the good ol' days?
April 30, 2011 4:08:10 PM

Part deaux:
Desperation drove the likes of the peace movements, burning of bras etc for many reasons.
It allowed for change, a common vision of "betterment" amongst all who aligned themselves.
Seen by people early in years and experience as the right and only thing to do.
Thus conciousness amongst the many became a reality, instead of reality itself, wherein circular logic is self justified, as in killing, burning, destroying or harming peoples, property or the environment was "OK" in the name of peace.
These inexperienced, young crowd all wanted to be a part of a larger thing, many turning from their faiths as was known, to join in the faith of man, with "the ideal" approach to comfort and evolve man forwards, for the sake of man.
Shame on those that didnt embrace such ethics, as those werent doing it right, didnt have the finer grasps, where such terms as bigotry, racism, sexism, anti-cultural were attached to those who didnt follow in step.
All these things allowed for the the advancement of conciousness of man, as percieved by those few who got things done, the zealots.
They were at the forefront, in the news, with many a proclamation as what to do, what point of view to take, and ultimately even what terms or words to choose, as in political correctness.
The power grab by these zealots is easy to see how and why it happened and is shameful for a potential for what may have been
April 30, 2011 4:48:41 PM

That would be just a harmless coincidence, and if believed to be anything more, then those that thought "different" will certainly be labeled as fringe, or wrong thinkers, and eventually, dangerous for keeping such thoughts.
They laugh, as a quick dismissal, and if continued, then condemned, as if it were dangerous.
They have their plans, their ideals. They also have previous examples to follow, as to what works best
Its as if the book 1984 was written ahead of its time, tho its time was behind the times
