Many of those rural areas don't even have farms. It's just land. So it's kind of like how the Constitution counted slaves as 3/5th of a person. In the Republicans' mind, empty land should count as an extra 3/5 more than a city dweller.


Actually, establishing state voter delegates in 1787 for what would become the Electoral College was a way to keep southern slave states from too much voting power.

Kanye put up $35,000 to get put on the ballot in Oklahoma. He is in the race for the White House.

He may create his own political party.

Good riddance to bad rubbish - not sure what the others were, but gina's ghastly BLM thread is gone, so that's an upgrade.


Well, I got the question up about why it was removed, but I've already got a post there.

No, not at all. You have zero proprietary interest in this medium.

This website is a publication. The chief editors are the webmasters. Anything we write is a submission to this publication. If the editor does not want our submissions printed, then our material must be published elsewhere. When an editor edits, it is not censorship, it is simply the exercising of his or her aesthetic prerogative.

One thing to keep in mind is our little conflagrations create a lot of search fodder - I would be concerned as a webmaster about some of the more loaded terms that come up , which could attract serious weird attention on search engines, either from whackjobs or even intelligence agencies - something to keep in mind when posting things like -"Say auf wedersehn to your Nazi balls" or starting an openly racist thread like that BLM thread.

This is first and foremost a commercial site to promote a music company - as such it isn't the greatest PR to have a blitzkrieg of hostile insanity greet the casual internet surfer looking for info on the Allman Brothers.



Well said. Now let's just post factual stuff, like Biden is a mumbler.

I sure hope it wasn't something I said.

It wouldn't surprise me though if it wasn't the stuff that was being posted by the new user "Cagey" that either he or someone else kept deleting. A couple of the ones yesterday were on the verge of something weird - I don't want to call it "threatening", but weird in a very hostile way.

For instance, his post about "hippies trying to run to gun owners for protection when African Americans turn on them" was followed up buy a post (that got deleted almost immediately) where he said he "just remembered I need to go buy some", which seemed to be referring to bullets.

Also, his "just as guilty as anybody" "defense" of the ABB using the Confederate flag 40 years ago and claiming that BLM is out to destroy a band that no longer exists and always had African American members was probably just a little more paranoid whacko stuff than they wanted on here.

I didn't see the stuff he posted the first night he was on here, but that was all deleted also. I wonder if someone other than him was deleting his egregious posts and then decided it was just easier to delete the whole threads.

That guy is a ruiner.

Any suggestion of "culture canceling" (whatever) a form of music known collectively as "southern rock" is, "whacko". The idea to use the Confederate flag as a marketing tool was probably the idea of ... a marketing "tool". I always thought it was a stupid idea - most of the players eventually came around with that opinion, too.

Aside form the flag - I can think of very few song lyrics that even come close to tying any of the "southern rock" bands to anything resembling racism or "southern power" - or whatever. The late, Charlie Daniels might've come closest with, "The South's Gonna Do it Again" ... but I am really not familiar enough with the lyrics to say exactly what context he was speaking in. I always assumed that he was referring to record sales (as Skynyrd did with "Gimme Back My Bullets"). Dickey Bett's, "Southbound" really has nothing to do with anything more than a guy heading home - which happens to be in the southerly direction.

I personally don't think that the music of the Allman Brother's Band was ever intended for the ears of a bunch of rednecks. Congratulations to those types for finding it.

X2! Great way of stating it.



Also, I was reminded this morning on NPR about when Right-wing "cancel culture" went after The Dixie Chicks 17 years ago. Same people crying about the liberal cancel culture nonstop today were probably burning their Dixie Chicks CDs back then and Nikes a few years back with Kapaernick.

"The South's Gonna Do It Again"

Well the train to Grinder's Switch is runnin' right on time,
And them Tucker Boys are cookin down in Caroline
people down in Florida can't be still
When Lynyrd Skinnerd's picking down in Jacksonville
People down in Georgia come from near and far
To hear Richard Betts pickin' on that red guitar

So gather 'round, gather 'round chillin'
Get down, well just get down chillin'
Get loud, well you can be loud and be proud
well you can be proud, hear now
Be proud you're a rebel cause the South's gonna do it again, and again

Elvin bishop sittin' on a bale of hay
He ain't good lookin', but he shure an play
And there's ZZ Top and you can't forget
When old brother Willie's get soakin' wet
And all the good people down in Tennessee
Are diggin' bare foot Jerry and the C,D.B.

(Chorus repeats)

Written by Charles Edward Daniels

Just talking about how music from southern bands will help combat that blight on the radio stations called, oww, it's hard to type it, I'm getting nauseous, eeeerrrrppp, Disco. The ABB and other southern bands held back the bland stuff in the 60's called the British Invasion.

The ABB worked hard on keeping ticket prices down, even played a lot of free gigs so that those who worked low paying jobs out in the sun, thus getting rednecks, could enjoy the music.
let's not use generalized insults on hard working people.

Nope. Too many hard working folks who are NOT rednecks. Try tolerance, empathy - even sympathy towards others. I'm not sure what your own definition of a redneck is, but the lives of the ones that I've had to deal with really don't matter that much to me personally. Try this:

" ... Well, by and by, way after many years have gone
And all the war freaks die off, leavin' us alone
We'll raise our children, in the peaceful way we can
It's up to you and me brother
To try and try again ..."

Peace and love, y'all.

Not quite.

Hey! Let's have a contest! Guess Boynton Brothers new username! Been kinda dull around here anyway.

So, what's it been, 6 usernames?

I'm going with "Lucky7".

That was quick. He was having a meltdown all by himself. I see he's gone on the member list, but there's another Cageylefty who joined around the same time. Tiresome having to dodge these trolls.

Why would he be gone? His posts weren't any more "special" than some posters who are still here.
He just asked pointed questions, with links, about subjects some here would rather everyone would just let go with "their" flow rather than what was actually going on.

Begin edit: Cagey had been a registered member since 2014. did Boyton Brother know that he would need so many extra log-ons back then?

He imploded. He posted that he'd contacted Rowland that someone was hacking into his account & complained about some sort of injustice. Now he's gone.
