    Shock !!!

    I've got a Taylor cut away that has one of the best sounds of any Acoustic Guitar I've ever owned.

    Nice and clean and loud with a slight and natural chorus effect and great action.

    The only other Guitar that Ive owned that was comparable to it was a Esteve Classical Guitar.

    Sure different sound all together but clean and loud with great action.

    Sure I like Martins too but I wouldn't trade my Taylor for one.

    Stop trying to blame individual failings on anyone other than the the person who failed...

    Good old boys play Martin's, Bad boys play Gibson's, choirboys play Taylors.

    I love how that big falllacy keeps rearing it's head. That control by numbers of the dems the right keeps talking about didn't exist. There were still enough republicans to block most of what the president wanted. And when the republican minority leader says his main agenda is to make Obama a one term president that pretty much sets the tone.

This was clear when his first order of business was to bring in a former jailbird communist to construct a laundry list of progressive wants and ram it through against the wishes of the people and call it a healthcare bill.

    He also projects this lie of his when he counts making America better, and increasing opportunity not by actually creating good jobs, but rather simply not counting those long term unemployed who hav exhausted benefits and putting them on welfare.

    He has destroyed the moral of the country with his 'America is not exceptional' rhetoric, and his seemingly endless world apology tour making America no longer a player on the world stage that need not be listened to or taken seriously.

    So, could you say that Bush and repubs screwed the pooch when they failed to reign in crooks like Frank, and Dodd who ran cover for criminals like Franklin Raines who presided over the corruption of Fannie, and that this was a cause of the financial collapse? Then yes, agreed. But to elect the very incompetent, corrupt, lying machine that were actually responsible for the collapse in the first place is just plan retarded.

    We are idiocracy.
    What a steaming pants load!

    He got both the stimulus and Obamacare.

    Your talking points need an upgrade.

    The Bullet points:

    Our priorities in the 114th Congress will be your priorities. That means addressing head-on many of the most pressing challenges facing the country, including:

    • The insanely complex tax code that is driving American jobs overseas;

    • Health costs that continue to rise under a hopelessly flawed law that Americans have never supported;

    • A savage global terrorist threat that seeks to wage war on every American;

    • An education system that denies choice to parents and denies a good education to too many children;

    • Excessive regulations and frivolous lawsuits that are driving up costs for families and preventing the economy from growing;

    • An antiquated government bureaucracy ill-equipped to serve a citizenry facing 21st-century challenges, from disease control to caring for veterans;

    • A national debt that has Americans stealing from their children and grandchildren, robbing them of benefits that they will never see and leaving them with burdens that will be nearly impossible to repay.

    A phoney list that for the most part can't be accomplished in 20 years let alone 2 and they know it. It's all about political posturing and not about getting things done for the American people. Interesting to see they're going to attack the ACA again that can't be repealed when time would be better spent improving it. And the repubs want to spend even more money bolstering the military complex that is one if the biggest contributors to our deficit.

    The republicans claim to want to reduce the deficit as long as they can spend money on their pet projects.
