  •  He would have liked the Occupy Movement (13+ / 0-)

    He would probably like it if we all talked about peace more often.

    Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.

      That is why I choose the video above.

      Instant Karma is going to get you. It is up to you, yes you. All of John Lennon songs were deeply personal. Even How do you Sleep at Night is not about Paul, it is about John dealing with his emotions. After the Beatles broke up he wrote God. You believe in yourself, it is up to you. There is no Buddha that is going to come down and save you.

      It is possible to read the history of this country as one long struggle to extend the liberties established in our Constitution to everyone in America. - Molly Ivins

        He founded the band and he ended it. It was the worse mistake he ever made. He had no real family when he was born. His mother was a fruitcake who didn't want him. She used him as a baseball bat to drive off his father. When that succeeded, she dumped him off on her sister, his aunt. It's a tragic story. He started music bands when he was a teenager just so he would have something like a family. That's how he met Paul and George. They informally adopted him.

        He was always the leader and the one they looked up to. He could play with any musicians he wanted; they didn't care cos they felt they were a family. It was a long hard slog they went through before they became famous. Took almost 10 years--but they did it cos they were 3 brothers.
