You are right. Only hip-hop type music.

I think Art has a place in Healthcare, that is for Adults and Kids that have chronic or terminal illnesses (or their family members do) it can be very therapeutic. Also waiting and hospital rooms can become more soothing. But I don’t think that they were talking about that. It’s how can Healthcare (SEIU) use Art to get Obama’s agenda passed? How can they use Art to respond to Republican talking points?

I agree with the guy who first wrote about this on biggovernment.com, these kind of politics have no place in the NEA (if we have to have the NEA).

You know what they call urine in a water or milk jug?
“Trucker Bombs”.

Well if that's the case then I've misunderstood the discussion so far.

Of course they're not going to use classical music to get voters to support healthcare.

Unless they were smarter and realized that the demographics that support classical music are the seniors and those seniors would feel that a classical-themed campaign would probably give a more serious and responsible air to the entire issue.

But, like I said, they're not that smart.

“talk about how the remarkable mobilizing power of community arts can be used by the Obama administration as a tool and a pathway for national recovery.”

Funny stuff. I talked to an old guy who was part of a crew that created “art” under FDR. (Forgot the name of the program.) Anyway, he and a large crew of “artists” created literally tons of art and paintings and especially sculpture work. He told me to take a trip to a warehouse in Milwaukee, and inside were hundreds of pieces of art, collecting dust and forgotten.

By way of my incoherent posting due to lack of sleep. (got my youngest home with some type of flu), I don’t think that I was very clear.

This doc that I found on scribe, describes their entire agenda and using “Art” and the non-political (yea right) NEA. It was related to the “Conference call” story that Breitbart broke yesterday, and Glenn Beck spoke about last week. I just couldn’t believe that there had been any other meetings with the WH besides that conference call. This meeting happened on May 12, 2009. The conference call was in early August.

I know what Obama’s agenda is, or at least thought I knew. To read it in a WH briefing was astounding. (to me) Cronies were there, they described whom to form “relationships with” in the WH (Jarrett). Most of those on the list that I googled are far lefties with far lefty agendas.

In Phoenix, the city paid a couple hundred thousand for some concrete “pots” to adorn the tops of the freeway walls. I don’t even know if these are there anymore. It was a big waste of money and a lot of the talk radio hosts were making fun of it. This happened at least 10 years ago if not more.

When I was in high school, I did a Federal Program over the summer called YCC, Youth Conservation Corp. We made concrete picnic benches and tables for a soon-to-be park. The park never was and the next year when I drove out to look at it, the stuff was destroyed. One of the leaders of our group said that the Federal Govt. came in and wrecked it. Figures.

It’s early. Maybe we’re *both* confused!

zer0’s agenda sucks and there is no place for the NEA to become the taxpayer-funded propaganda wing of the 0bama Project.

On that I think there is no confusion, right? :0)

For anyone wanting to know more about Buffy (since she’s in the news and maybe soon to be thrown under the bus) she’s engaged.

“ENGAGED: White House Office of Public Engagement Deputy Director Buffy Wicks and FERC policy hand Michael Kadish. Wedding is anticipated to be May 2010. They met on the campaign trail when he attended a “Camp Obama” session that she was leading. Mr. Kadish asked for Ms. Wicks’ hand during a recent trip to Sicily, Italy. While the two were having a romantic picnic, Mr. Kadish popped out the custom made ring and asked for Ms. Wicks to be his wife. After a couple of teary minutes, she gave the affirmative. People throughout the Administration, throughout Missouri, New York and California, and literally spanning the globe are sending best wishes to the couple. Get ready for toasts, parties, roasts, you name it. (hat tip: Debbie Mesloh, Ben Smith)”

Bittersweet engagement right now I’d say.

Sounds good. That briefing is really, really interesting. The plans they have for America. The NEA guy wants to ‘reinvent’ the NEA, of course with lefty agendas.

It’s a really mind-blowing read. I don’t think that I’m understating it at all.

Barf... The Office of Valerie Jarrett has taken over the effort to push this - Mitzi Something (a Valerie Jarrett aide) is fronting.

Valerie Jarrett has her hands everywhere, and I though Hillary was good. Hill looks like a Girl Scout compared to this.

Right, but the point is that this time it is not coming from some low level staffer at the NEA, but coming directly from the WH, ie Hussein.
