Re: Bahrain kills and beats protesters - Obama silent

Dude chill and take a joke that is a quote from a movie.

I am just trying to give you some resources to channel you obvious frustration with current event/policies.

BTW Change.org has no affiliation with Obama, please check it out. Look I am a very active citizen and share in your concerns.

I am just not sure this is the proper medium for that kind of discussion.

Peace man!

I disagree. There are several forum here for the discussion of the music. This is for general discussion and I would hope that people on this board would care about more than just the music, as you seem to do.

Not the place for political discussion, IMHO.

Seeing as the band we all love seemingly went out of their way to be non-political ( in contrast to many of their 60's counterparts ), I believe in keeping that spirit alive, at least on a music board.

I have choked on my fair share of tear gas for what I care about. DON'T GO THERE! Many people care about many different topics. I thought that this sight is music based. Guess bad assumtion.

Seems to me that they got real political a few years ago when they played a benefit for Obama and Phil has an Obama sticker on his amp. and I hope you mean the Grateful Dead by "the band we all love" because I saw Further at Nateva last year (we played before them at the festival) and I wasn't blown away by them.

Dear Furthur board,

At this time we would like to request that people here embrace Shakin Nagan and his political ramblings. We have had to listen to his bitching and moaning for years now and quite frankly it is someone else's turn and it seems that Furthur board is the lucky new recipient. Richie is a good guy with a good heart but he complains a LOT and can become very overbearing. Today he joined this community and hopefully he will enjoy the fact that he has a new audience to listen to his daily bitching about Obama and our government and Furthur board can now bare some of the weight. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude in advance for welcoming him with open arms and relieving us of his incessant rambling. We believe he is getting senile in his old age so be gentle with him. Shake on Richie...Shake on!

Sincerely,

The Philzone

Perhaps this discussion can be held with civility. Expression of opinions can be done thoughtfully and kindly.


Richie, you have been most civil. I was responding to the person who brought up that some mean things start to be said.
FUCK CANCER!

Peace & Love
