We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
That prompted me to revisit Another Side of Bob Dylan. From "I Shall Be Free # 10:"
Now, I’m liberal, but to a degree
I want everybody to be free
But if you think I’ll let Barry Goldwater
Move in next door and marry my daughter
You must think I’m crazy!
I wouldn’t let him do it for all the farms in Cuba.
One of the few times I've seen a video of him playing the guitar breaks b/w verses, and able to hear his instrument in the mix at the same time. A very interesting style. Thoroughly enjoyed this rendition.
Gringo, the lyric on that one is so prophetic! another great one.
