January Cheese – House Mix

January 23rd, 2010

After a couple of weeks of full-on work, I got a chance to do a mix. I picked some of the house tunues I’ve been buying in the last year or so. Did the mix twice to get acceptable results. Only a few minor glitches in this one. Let me know what you think and drop me a line if you want the tracklisting.

Socialism explained

November 14th, 2009

From an article on

A sociology teacher once failed a whole class because they insisted that socialism worked. He averaged out  their exam grades over a year which resulted in the whole class wroking less and less each time they took an exam.

Read the fulll article here.

Here’s a quote from the same article:

You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for,that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

~ Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931
