Re: Phil:: Please dont REMOVE the OBAMA sticker

Good article: Phil Lesh: Barack Obama Resurrected The Dead

www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/04/17/phil-l...ama-re_n_188111.html


After Lesh, who had never publicly supported a presidential candidate, threw his lot in with Obama, he was anxious to do a benefit concert for him. But he was all but done with The Dead, so it was going to feature his other band, Phil and Friends.

"My son Brian said, 'No Daddy, you've got to get The Dead together because it will be so much more meaningful and important,'" the musician chuckled during a recent phone interview.

One benefit performance led to another and then an inaugural ball concert. Next thing they knew, Lesh, guitarist Bob Weir and drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann were back together.

"It came off so well that we thought we owe it to ourselves to play again," Lesh said. "It brings out something in all of us, in our gestalt and our totality, that we can't deliver, we can't find anywhere else."

Phil was all but done with The Dead but did this benefit as the Dead because he thought it important. I think he stills thinks it is important. Do you really think Donald Trump is going to fix this mess or some Tea Party fanatic. Have you read the paper lately. No unions, no medicaid for the poor and disabled, no medicare. Just a few fat cats and lots and lots of poor people with no voice what so ever. We better start making some noise or we are going to be totally screwed.

No one is going to fix this...nothing new under the sun.. Community works...we are to far seperated and far to large for this shit to work... The thing is we could all UNITE and become ONE voice and get some attention.

I don't disagree. Obama says he supports labor and unions. He really needs to get out in front on this. I was a delegate and am also more than a little bit disappointed so far. I would be lying if I said other wise. I'm just not quite ready to throw in the towel.

He has said a lot of things. Actions speak louder than words.

I am in a union. My corporate masters would just love to get rid of the union and our CBA. This was very important to me. He said he would not be beholden to the lobbyist's. He said he worked for us, not them. He needs to make an About, FACE on this fast. I think that sticker may just be barely hanging on. We shall see.

He was elected because the young folk on the left came out and voted for him. They stayed home in 2010 in disgust with his betrayal. The Republicans won the House. Instead of moving left again to get them out to vote he moves to the center.
