i.e. people confuse a government structure with an economic structure. communism is a government structure. socialism is an economic structure.

@Annette I don't think you're taking into account the PTSD we will all develop from this admin. Him popping up again in 4yrs would cause a mass mental health crisis!

THANK YOU Billy Jam for great interview
Avatar 7:31pm Billy Jam:

@HyperDose - totally agree on George Clinton - who is where I got my name "Billy Jam" name from back in the mid 80's upon first interviewing him - he is my hero. - Coincidentally several weeks ago when BAS-One was my co-host I was saying how he is a treasure and that he does not do shows anymore -then later that night saw where he did (From NJ) a Zoom live show online

Avatar 7:35pm Billy Jam:

hi JakeGould - thanks for asking about the foot/leg which has been a slow recovery with several setbacks and just found out two days ago that I have to go back in for second surgery at Highland Hospital on Monday morning - to take the hardware (2 metal plates and 17 pins) out of my leg and foot - am bit nervous but know it will work out okay in long run
Avatar 7:36pm Billy Jam:

@JP yeah I have done numerous interviews with PARIS over the decades inc. on KALX back in late 80's
