  Thanks for listenning to this episode of The Dusty Show! Sorry I am a little late in getting this playlist done. As I type this, we are in the midst of Marathon and things are understandably hectic.

Perhaps you have noticed that in recent weeks I have bounced back and forth a lot between live shows, stories, and taped issue-oriented shows. I was reviewing the archives prior to Marathon and trying to get a feel for the arc of the past year. Admittedly, I have struggled to find my footing a bit recently. I'll be glad when Marathon is over and some time and normalcy return. I also miss filling in on the three-hour shows. I have so much vinyl stockpiled! I have always felt that mine is not a music show and I get a bit of crap for the music on Dusty, yet, sometimes you guys make me feel like you really enjoy it! We'll see where things go.

I am on Twitter, Soundcloud and Facebook now. Look me up. Join the Pigeonnaires! Until next time, take care ... PLEASE PLEDGE!!!! and ...

always remember

Yeah, the sequester's going to affect a lot of people around here; all the possible government furloughs, plus the "furloughs" and hours cut from local business as spending money drops.

So, then, I got all the Sea Quest Nation fan club together for nothing tonight? This sucks. The Scheider mask alone cost me half a week's pay.

hey Clay! bummed i keep missing your show because of work, glad to be listening live again. ive been out of the loop since Dirty Clown!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Matt from Springfield:

A lot of Federal workers live paycheck to paycheck and have kids to support, so furloughs would hurt a lot of people; yet there's almost a brutal justice towards the people in power with this sequester. This was supposed to be a poison pill that hurts all parties and benefits no one, so Congress would get their shit together. And of course they didn't! They've ALREADY failed, they've failed SEVERAL times in fact, so it's time to face the consequences politically.
Avatar 6:14pm glenn:

just wondering - how many libertarians would it take before society fell apart because nobody was paying taxes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm anne:

good to hear this topic. my job prospects have been most probably wiped out by the sequestration, an application process that has consumed me for the last few months. but cross my fingers and readjust and keep on keepin on.
  6:14pm Nate:

Ah yes, Melissa! Thanks for the info. Like this better
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm Matt from Springfield:

Too bad the ordinary people have to suffer through it as well. I can only hope they will channel their anger at the political establishment, hastening the conclusion to this debacle and getting it over with for a generation or forever.

Phew! Anyways...early version of "Melissa"! Interesting listen!

hey there clay & everybody else!! what's up??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm Sugarfly Waterloo:

I enjoyed Paul Bagela's suggestion that if Texas and Kentucky really want to deal with their toxic addictions to government funding they can close the massive military bases that exists there.

Avatar 6:34pm Clay Pigeon:

You'll have fun, Bad Guy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Matt from Springfield:

There's another hidden perk to the sequester's furloughs--Federal workers aren't allowed to strike (which I agree with). Federal workers also aren't allowed to work for free or when there's no money appropriated (harder to understand years ago, e.g. why no free internships, but agree now).

The Teabagger Republicans who are wanting this sequester probably don't like *anyone* striking, particularly Feds. And yet...that's what this winds up being, a labor action! A slowdown and walkoff, FORBIDDEN from working more than 32 hours a week. After being pushed around for so many years, now can be a time of "striking" in protest at Congress, LEGALLY!

  6:35pm High gas prices:

Got you down? Thank your friends in DC for the Iranian sanctions and our Saudi pals who claimed they would increase production. World markets react to scarcity.

Why love America when America certainly doesn't love you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Matt from Springfield:

A mandatory and not voted on strike, but still powerful, affecting all departments and nearly every worker equally. Once flights are backed up for miles and meat lovers can't get any meat w/o paying $100s on the black market, the anti-government voters may get a lesson in what government does, the hard way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Carmichael:

Hey, High Gas: Look up Prescott Bush. This crap has been going on for the last 75 years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: Up With People, crazy group, they almost satire themselves! I believe that was the group crazy Interior Secretary James Watt had at the national 4th of July concert, because the Beach Boys were "un-American"(!!!!)
Avatar 6:37pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I come from a family full of hard-working public employees. I'm not one, but it bugs me how much this debate characterizes public employees as all wasteful laggarts. Really just not true.

this tape turn could be a freakout. not used to deck.
  6:43pm Night Al:

If you don't have a senate and house majority, you're a lame duck president.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm Matt from Springfield:

@Pete: There's the easy way, and the hard way to do it. Seems like the whole of America will have to take the hard way, thanks to Congress.

Go ahead, Nate!

Avatar 6:44pm Clay Pigeon:

Hey Timbo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm anne:

federal workers are a huge number of people that are commonly referred to as one, within which there is a lot of variation according to agency and departments. for National Park Service workers, to protect the worker, they are not to work for free doing their duties so that the worker is paid for their work and not taken advantage of. that said, there are thousands upon thousands of volunteers who augment the work of the NPS (and other public agencies) because there are less and less permanent NPS paid staff, yet more and more work. visitation to National Parks have increased substantially, facilities age with time and are falling apart, and budgets are reduced each year. the result of this all is "blame the government" if any NPS services fall short. so when we speak of "federal workers", be specific in who/what you're talking about, and back it up with experience or stats. federal workers are us, our relatives, friends and neighbors. just my 2 cents to a previous comment somewhere on the board.
  6:45pm dale:

hey clay! late sign in for me - my cat was having a mild seizure and i had to sit and hold her. who know having pets was so hard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Carmichael:

I've been in Government for 25+ years, and I still can't figure out how my budget works, much less the whole system's. Someone who says they can run government because they own a business is a complete jackass.

@Carm: Not only is profit totally not the point of government, but no one inside or out of government knows how their budgets work anyway! And the budgets we have are always late anyway, after much legislative infighting and dealmaking.

Oh, A Mighty Wind kinda went after the New Christy Minstrels as well. That was a strange time, folk singers from the suburbs singing about picking cotton in the hot sun, spending time in a Mexican prison, and chasing whales in the Atlantic. All they had going for them was sincerity.
