I certainly don’t share your opinion about which side of that battle is corrupt. But then I am a Canuckistani. :)

That said, I recommended the song. Musically, its good.

Hey thanks Admiral Bob! Yeah you guys up der are a lil differnt arent cha? I figured the topic kinda fit since it started as a citizen’s movement.

I originally thought about a more techno style but after I heard Porchcat’s riffs and Mindmap’s vox I was like wow this could make for an interesting metal genre:o)

Powerful song. You opened my mind to the versatility of metal. Thank you for all of your kind words regarding my spoken word… and for making such great use of it. I’ve always thought favorably about unions, but sure, why wouldn’t corruption plant itself there, too? Thank you for sharing your story (written and musically)… it made me think… which I always appreciate.

Thanks MM! And thanks soo much for recording this your voice is amazing. p.s. I absolutely love your song “Still Stuck!”

And as far as unions - I feel one needs to keep PUBLIC (not “normal” unions) in check since their funding source is the tax levy of citizens - and theoretically unlimited. Having a non-elected special interest group in charge of your city budget is not good :o)

Great mix Papa Zulu! It’s a musical story, a sonic news report—tough tones and beats—it’s for real. Cut the connection!

Cool remix. Well done. Wrt messaging, pointing out that one person’s root worth saving (power base) is the corrupt evil root to be struck down by another is a bold notion of balance within “striking at the evil root of corruption” mix-a-thon.

Hey thanks Tex, (big fan btw). I guess the main thing I tried to communicate is to reinforce the Dr.’s philosophy that the funder’s are not the people, since some folks say the public unions are “the people” but in reality they are just another special interest (and a big funder of corruption).

Thanks Steve! It was a great project wasn’t it?

A part 2 is coming, because even after the People, the Executive Branch, the Legislative Branch, and the Judicial Branch told Public Unions are done, they are now attempting to get bank account numbers of former members, and started a lawsuit on the basis that since Public Unions no longer have the ability to involuntary collect dues from public funds, it is a violation of the public union’s First Amendment right…..lol how twisted!
