    This random, motley set of Josh with Lester and Earl is for the true Josh junkie. Sound and image quality varies, because even the best '50s sources lack HD quality -- so, no apologies! The playing is topnotch, IMHO. A few songs don't have Josh on Dobro. Either he was "simply" playing fills, or he was playing bass. Regardless, he was always a joy to hear, or see.

    The influx of refugees from the perpetually war-torn Middle East currently flooding Europe presents a problem of immense measures right now, but the current problems it presents pales in comparison to the problems it will present in the future. Germany, for instance, is accepting eight hundred thousand in a nation of 80.62 million, and the refugees will represent almost one percent of the German population in a nation that already has a prominent Muslim constituency. This flow of refugees is just the beginning of what is bound to come, as the word gets back to Syria and the ISIS controlled...

    Donald Trump has vowed to deport every single one of the country's illegal immigrants and rescind any executive orders Barack Obama put in place to protect them. 'We're going to keep the families together, but they have to go,' Trump told NBC's Meet the Press in an interview that is set to air on Sunday morning. Asked by host Chuck Todd about illegal immigrants who might have nowhere else to go, Trump said: 'We will work with them.

The anti-armed citizenry Tryannocrat Elites are from the Intellectual class, who are content to dictate unreasonable policies to the people then sit back dispassionately and watch as an experiment.

    The breakdown of the family has been one of the most dispiriting changes over the past 50 years, and conservatives have rightly sought to combat it at almost every turn. That being said, in their efforts to encourage family formation and to keep families strong, conservatives have often focused on laws rather than economic policies. But its not an either-or. Its a both-and. Arthur Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute, has rightly argued that human flourishing requires more than simply economic flourishing. He has pointed out that the conclusion from the majority of studies that have been done on...

PRESIDENT OBAMA: People dont remember, but when I came into office, the United States in world opinion ranked below China and just barley above Russia, and today once again, the United States is the most respected country on earth, and part of that I think is because of the work we did to reengage the world and say that we want...

Many of the complaints I hear from residents of the more rural, upstate region center on the unbalanced power held by New York City and the complete disconnect between the government and the more conservative, rural communities to the north and west. But even as a person studying and experiencing...

But he is obviously not an expert on everything, and does not seem to know much about music and the demographics associated with music. Cruz recently said: "...I grew up listening to classic rock, and Ill tell you sort of an odd story: My music taste changed on 9/11. And its very strange. I actually intellectually find this very curious. But on 9/11, I...

    President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot feel it. During an interview with 60 Minutes Steve Kroft, Obama said, the country is definitely better off than when I came into office. When I came into office, our economy was in crisis, Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administrations success. I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial...

The first tip-off that heinous public policy ideas were coming was that the Times introduced farmer Chuck Herrin, owner of a farm-labor contracting company, as a "lifelong Republican." That's Times-speak for "liberal." Herrin admitted that he employs a lot of illegal aliens and bitterly complained that they lived in fear of "Border Patrol and deportations."

"Cardiomyopathy is the term for any disease of the heart muscle that interferes with the hearts ability to pump blood with sufficient force," according to Johns Hopkins Medicine. Travis' condition, which is viral, was caused by an infection in the heart. Travis, 54, was admitted to the hospital on Sunday.

Much has been made of the continuing gridlock in our national government, brought on largely by the polarized nature of our two major political parties. Divided national government, in our time, is a recipe for dysfunction. But a much different dynamic is playing out in state governments. There, one-party control is becoming the norm. According to...
