MusiC: Sir Paul Still has IT!

OK... SIR Paul can STILL Rock I guess.. EVEN if he COULD still retire (in the US) since he's 66...

The BBC says "McCartney wows Quebec"

In his only scheduled live appearance in North America this year, Sir Paul, said: "I think it's time to smoke the pipes of peace and to just, you know, put away your hatchet because I think it's a show of friendship."

He played Beatles, Wings and solo songs in the outdoor concert - part of the 400th anniversary celebrations of Quebec.

Before the concert, Sir Paul said they should "smoke the pipes of peace".

Speaking in a mixture of French and English, he told the crowd: "Bonsoir les Quebecois [Good evening people of Quebec]."

Before the concert, many artists and politicians said his presence in Quebec was inappropriate because of the 18th century British conquest of Quebec.

Love (and music) conquers ALL

Peace. Love. Happiness
OK, you wanted a Political discussion: Here goes.

The background I believe that:
* It's going to be as BAD as the last one.
* According to Robert Reich (former Sec'y of Labor under Clinton): The only number that he EVER saw, defining the
depression was that the unemployment rate hovered around 25%.
* We need a new deal.
* After 58 years of NO Health Care Reform (since 1950!) it will FINALLY be coming soon...
* We've managed to WASTE a FULL generation (from Zero to thirty) with decaying social, educational, and interpersonal skills.
* Our nation is no longer DOING (producing) anything.
SO, from these few premises, I have extrapolated a great deal of items to FIX our society...

We need to make sure that a number of issues are resolved ALL at once.
If we don't do them ALL at once, its like juggling three RUNNING chain saws, but dropping one!

Here's what I came up with:

We need to do the FOLLOWING to FIX our Society:
* Create A Living Wage
* Create a National Single payer Healthcare
* Create a National 3-4 year draft (or alternate service)
* Create a Federally paid Day Care starting at six months
* Implement Tax Reform on the ULTRA Rich
* Lobbying (Political Reform)
* Education
* Infrastructure (road /bridge/Systems repairs)
* Lack of Training/futures
* Truth and Reconcilliation Commission
* A new "Manhattan" project, focusing on Energy INDEPENDENCE
