Yes, John Stewart,"gold," a one hit wonder.

Good tune, with Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham joining in.

Before they joined Fleetwood Mac Stevie and Lindsey put together a great album, "Buckingham Nicks."

It was like magic the first time I heard their little known power song "Frozen Love" on FM in the Colorado Rockies in 1975.

Karl Marx said of capitalism - that it's:



"half lamentation_________half lampoon

half echo of the past_________________half threat to the future"




I'm not a Marxist by any means - but wow - the man could write

    I think he might have been against racist math too... four halves can equal one thing instead of two it seems... if bigoted people like Euclid would just quit being so damn white about it [such certainty]
    the next time Dame Fortune toys with your heart, your soul and your wallet, raise your glass and praise her thus: “Thanks for nothing, you cold-hearted, evil, damnable, nefarious, low-life, malicious monster from Hell!” She is, after all, stone deaf. ... Arnold Snyder

    I think that is what is usually called "literary license"
    it generally, however, refers to fiction not non-fiction

    it wouldn't have sounded as strong if he used the words "one quarter"

    of course, Marx didn't mind straying into fiction - he was trying to find powerful words to start a revolution - not please critics of his writing style


    it sounds like you don't appreciate Marx or his writings_________certainly understandable

    I don't like that he was trying to push the world towards Communism - I'm against that

    but I love reading his works - his writings - his choices of words
