  • Jim Marshall, creator of the Marshall amp, dies aged 88

    Guardian ^ | 05 APR 12 | Michael Hann
    The man who gave rock one of its key visual and sonic props has died. Jim Marshall, known as "The Father of Loud" for inventing the Marshall amplifier, was 88 years old. Marshall was a drummer and drum teacher who used his earnings to set up a music shop in west London in 1960. Among his customers were the likes of Ritchie Blackmore and Pete Townshend, and it was through talking to them that Marshall realised there was a gap in the market for a guitar amplifier cheaper than the American-made models popular at the time. When, at Townshend's request,...
  • Dem's hippie ad: 'Does not support Pelosi...voted with GOP 65% of the time' (Votes Dem 88% of time)

    As Democrats in conservative districts scramble to distance themselves from the national Democratic leadership, Georgia Rep. Jim Marshall outdoes the rest with what's a cultural attack ad aimed at contrasting him with Speaker Nancy Pelosi. "Georgia is a long way from San Francisco," drawls the narrator, over images of dancing hippies. "Jim Marshall doesn't support Nancy Pelosi," says the narrator, citing a finding that Marshall voted with Republican leaders 65% of the time." Marshall a similar figure to the one Rep. Bill Owens, an Upstate New York Democrat, did yesterday, making a similar claim. By another measure, Marshall voted with...

    The Constitutional Alamo ^ | 10/04/09 | Michael Naragon
    The congressman began the rare meeting with voters in his district by apologizing for being late. He had taken a wrong turn in Jackson, GA, on his way to Covington. Wrong turns by politicians in Washington are becoming a common occurrence, and no one in the primarily conservative crowd seemed to be surprised. Marshall then admitted that his lack of direction may have come from the fact that, out of the 100 town hall meetings he granted over the last two years, only four have been done in Newton County, the conservative portion of his district. That leaves 96 meetings...

    House Bill 4681 continues a long, sad history of peacemaking attemptsBy Congressman Jim Marshall (D-GA) [Barf Alert]The tangled politics of Middle Eastern peacemaking has a rich history of unintended consequences. Nearly a century ago, a perceptive British officer familiar with Palestine offered this bit of irony about the treaties ending World War I: "After the 'war to end war' they seem to have been pretty successful in Paris at making a 'peace to end peace." And now, in support of Israel, U.S. House members passed a bill that Israel's most senior military leader believes will only make matters worse -...

    Mac Collins for Congress ^ | 01/01/2006 | William John Hagan
    I am happy to announce that as of January 1, 2006, I will be assuming the position of Communication Director for former Georgia Congressman Mac Collins. Congressman Collins has declared his candidacy in Georgia’s New 8th District and will be running against Democratic Congressman Jim Marshall. This will mean that I will be significantly reducing the numbers of columns that I will be writing. On occasion I will still, when time permits, write opinion pieces for the foreign press; however, at this time I feel that my primary responsibility as a United States citizen is to work for change at...

    My fellow Republicans, As many of you are aware I have been dismissed from my job at the Houston Home Journal. Danny Evans the publisher of the Journal has cited financial reasons as his official position for my dismissal. Sadly this is not the reality. I writing to inform you of the actual events and ask you for your help. On October 25th 2005 I published one of my bi-weekly columns on the subject of Democratic Congressman Jim Marshall’s voting record.

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution ^ | 05/21/04 | JIM MARSHALL
    Nothing threatens the liberal agenda more than failure in the war in Iraq. Those who care about civil liberties, peace and humanitarian causes undermine their own goals unless they exercise restraint, foresight, character and resolve on this one issue. Hard though it may be to accept, even peace activists should support this war. I thought about this while attending a funeral service for Chris Dickerson at Sweet Home Baptist Church in Chauncy, Ga. Chris was a Navy reservist killed in Fallujah on April 30. I had never met him. But I have known many like him — young men killed...

    Receive FREE updates by email: | Media Bias Killing Our Troops By Cliff Kincaid September 29, 2003 While the Democratic presidential candidates bash the President’s Iraq policy, Democratic Congressman Jim Marshall of Georgia, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, says "we have a problem with overly pessimistic media coverage that emboldens our enemies, discourages our potential allies and lessens our resolve." He says media bias "is killing our troops." Back from a trip to Iraq, Marshall, a Vietnam combat veteran, says, "There is good news to balance the bad. American soldiers with their typical ‘can do’ attitude...

    Congressman Jim Marshall (D-Ga) who just returned from Iraq said progress is being made in Iraq but Americans are not being informed of that by the media. He said that troop casualty reports should be balanced with reports of the good things that are happening in Iraq. Marshall was on Fox's The Factor tonight.

    U.S. Rep. Jim Marshall, D-Ga., went to Iraq to check out the war for himself. What he saw has him angry ... at America's media establishment. "The Iraq war has predictably evolved into a guerrilla conflict similar to Vietnam. Our currently stated objectives are to establish reasonable security and foster the creation of a secular, representative government with a stable market economy that provides broad opportunity throughout Iraqi society. Attaining these objectives in Iraq would inevitably transform the Arab world and immeasurably increase our future national security," he writes in today's Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "These are goals worthy of a...

    The Hill ^ | 7/8/03 | Joshua Karlin-Resnick
    Former Georgia Gov. Roy Barnes (D) is urging Rep. Jim Marshall to run next year for Senate. The race is one of only two open contests, along with Illinois, in the country. Barnes told the freshman congressman he "should seriously consider" running for the seat being vacated by Democrat Zell Miller. Despite Marshall's relatively brief stint in Congress, Barnes said the congressman, who won his House seat with narrow 51 percent of the vote, would be a credible Senate candidate. "I think he's a good candidate," Barnes told The Hill. "He has a good military record, he’s from a great...

    You wouldn't think the fight over the state flag referendum has played a role in the 2004 U.S. Senate race, but it has. Privately, leading Democrats will tell you the flap has soured the climate for prominent African-American politicians who otherwise might consider running for a top-tier statewide position -- and the chance to make a bit of history. Instead, the flag referendum -- along with the overwhelming figure of Zell Miller -- has kept strategists searching for a white, conservative Democrat who is not Mark Taylor or Cathy Cox. Last week's news that Mary Squires might seek the nomination...

    No one ever thought it would be a cakewalk. From that day in January when Johnny Isakson announced he would run for the U.S. Senate, Tom Perdue started hammering the north metro congressman. Perdue said Isakson favored abortion. Said he was too moderate - make that liberal. Said he was too close to the Democrats. Said he was a liar and a hypocrite. That was OK at the time. Tom Perdue is a political consultant, not a candidate. ''Brilliant and ruthless,'' The New York Times recently called him. Some observers doubted that consultant Perdue (no relation to Gov. Sonny Perdue)...
