In light of the recent Tea Parties does anyone think there will ever be a second civil war in America?

Ever is a long time. A thousand years from now, who knows? Anytime in the near future? Probably not, unless some catastrophic event occurs.

I asked the question because I watched some of the tea parties on tv and to me a lot of them looked like I hate Obama rallies. And then listening to crazy Glen Beck he states that American Patriots should rise up and have a revolution. Gov Perry of Texas and Gov Palin want to succede from the Union.

Rush and Bobby Jindal and other republicans are praying for the President to fail during one of the worst economic downturns and the number of guns that have been sold has gone thru the roof. All of these things combined are a little scary but that's just me

As a moderate conservative republican, here is my opinion.

I can't stand liberal democrat policy. I can't stand Obama's policy. I can't stand what Republican congressmen and senators are doing right now. Pelosi, I wish she'd disappear somehwere in Hollywood and never speak again. I want government out of my way and I want taxes lowered. I don't hate the people making these idiotic decisions...well, Pelosi...maybe. I hate the policies and decisions that are being forced down our throats.

That being said, I will make my voice heard in 2010 by voting. Most the people you see on TV will do the same thing. 99% of these people are decent folks, but the news shows you the extremists. It's like the protests in the U.K. They made it look like it was thousands of people protesting, when in reality it was limited to an area several blocks away from the G20 meetings and included hundreds of people showing off for the camreas.

So to answer your question about a civil war, no. I think it will cause a massive rush to the ballot boxes though.

    • Calvin Pryor sucks he's getting cut at some point they just drafted two guys that can disguise their blitz looks as both Maye and Adams can do a lot of the same things. Jets safety's are going to be beastly, and it's not like their front is bad either with Richardson and Wilkerson but I don't even know who is playing QB for them
    • Some of you may remember that I'm a banjo player and studying classical guitar and music composition at East Carolina University. This was my senior year and for my senior composition recital I composed a 40 minute chamber opera. I heavily borrowed from traditional folk songs from The Anthology of American Folk Music (good composers borrow, great composers steal - Igor Stravinsky). The idea was original to be about a 20 minute telling of the story from The House Carpenter, but after researching the history of the ballad, I decided to do a telling of the Scottish Daemon Lover version of the story and mix elements of other ballads into the story. I used a lot of melodies from the ballads that I used, though a lot of times you'll have words from one ballad, mixed with the melody from another. It's a large thing so I'm giving a link to download it from dropbox. I hope some of you are interested enough to listen. If you're not, who can blame you, move along and enjoy your day. The Daemon Lover Below is a description of each scene. Act 1
      Scene 1
      The House Carpenter is building a cabin in the mountains win a demon comes to see him. He says he must give himself or one of his family as a sacrifice. The House Carpenter says to take his wife, because she has no ability to make money for their children. Scene 2
      Jane Reynolds is alone at him and tells the story of her long lost love, James Harris. The House Carpenter returns home and tells her that he has to go out of town on a business trip. Jane Reynolds tries to convince him to stay, but she is unsuccessful. Scene 3
      Jane Reynolds is alone at home when the demon comes to fetch her disguised as her lost love, James Harris. He convinces her to go away with him and leave her children with the House Carpenter. Act 2
      Scene 1
      Less than 2 weeks later the demon and Jane Reynolds are at sea. Jane Reynolds begins to have second thoughts about leaving her family for James Harris. The demon grows tired of this and reveals himself to her. Scene 2
      The House Carpenter is living with deep regret for what he’s done to Jane Reynolds. He reveals that she is a witch, and if he hangs himself the spell the demon has on her will be lifted. The House Carpenter hangs himself. Scene 3
      After the House Carpenter hangs himself, Jane Reynolds can feel her witchcraft return to her. She makes the demon a mortal man and punctures the boat. The boat sinks and Janes Reynolds and the demon drown at sea. Below are the program notes for the piece When I was fifteen my Grandfather pulled a banjo down from his attic and told me if I could learn to play it I could have it. A few years later I discovered The Anthology of American Folk Music edited by Harry Smith. The music contained on those six CDs opened my eyes to an “old, weird America” that I had no idea even existed. I learned how to play and sing every ballad on it, and it was these songs that gave me confidence to major in music. I’ve felt for the last couple years that the deeper I get into classical theory and technique, the further I’m getting away from these folk songs that have been so important to me. This chamber opera is my attempt to reconnect a little bit with some of these ballads. “The Daemon Lover” is a traditional Scottish ballad that is known as “The House Carpenter” in America. The story in this opera is basically that song, with a few story elements added that come from other folk songs. These songs include “The Old Lady and the Devil, Butcher’s Boy, The Cuckoo, Omie Wise, and The Drunkard’s Special. The melodies are also taken from folk songs, though often the words are taken from one folk song and sung with the melody of another one.
