Well he was the front-man for the thread behavior...and we were drifting. You guys should take up the other topics that you're introducing on this thread, and put them in the thread where they belong....otherwise he would be forced to demand another apology, but this time from you guys....unless, of course you're both tripping....and that would certainly explain a lot!
I'm getting 'offended' just thinking about it!

"It's obvious from your above post and your posts, that if you think that that is what I'm saying, then you are hallucinating to the point of being a frothing imbecile of staggering proportions! Nothing excuses ANY of it.
You are suffering some some sort of comprehension blockage while 'peaking' ...go seek help!

Goofball, crawl back on the microscope slide where you belong before some lab assistant swabs the lab table with disinfectant and obliterates you.

It's obvious from your above post and your posts on the "Zimmerman" thread that you seem to think that the wanton murder of the jogger in Texas and the robbing and killing of the old man by blacks somehow excuses the murder of Trayvon Martin, a black teenager wearing a hooded sweatshirt, who was guilty of nothing but walking home after a trip to a convenience store, by a trigger-happy self-appointed vigilante.

Each of these incidents must be judged individually, and each one of them has its own dynamics.

Reading your posts makes it abundantly clear that you are a racist, a homophobe, and an egregious waste of both internet band-width--and protoplasm!!

Bobert: "It's you who needs to get out more and see just how some of the crap that you parrot from right wing blogs and fake news sources sounds to people who do get out and know what it going on in the real world..."

Then you should get out more often!
I wasn't defending Zimmerman, but rather pointing out the law, and refuting the claims that it was only about race. I also was pointing out, for guys like you, who bantered the race card around, that if YOU were REALLY concerned about race relations, that you would have been fair about BOTH sides, and taken issue, with certain cases that involved a black guy shooting a white baby in the face, or blacks shooting a white foreigner in the back, or three blacks beating an 88 year old guy to death....and then trying to justify it, as saying, 'It was ONLY for robbery', or 'ONLY for FUN', or ONLY for any other reason than what it was....after all that would be like saying Zimmerman, shot Martin ONLY to protect his neighborhood'!!!! Killing is killing....speaking of which, you never offered an answer, or even a guess, at what did all these guys have in common. At least Firth gave it a try...but he was wrong...probably trying too hard over that Petri dish trying to 'modify' genes....taking whiffs too often and cluttered his brain, with toxic ideas, that were compatible with his toxic behaviors!! He's been high on it ever since....but alas, you might explain to him the 'discomforts' of the 'come-down'!
....and you owe everyone an 'apology' for the thread drift, ala gnu's whining......UNLESS, your positions are flashbacks and brain damage form taking too much acid!

Lysergic acid diethylamide, introduced in 1938 by Albert Hofman was invented to introduce a schizophrenic state so that psychiatrists could study it further.

No it wasn't. The psychedelic effects were sheer fluke, nobody knew enough to plan something like that. Hofmann says:

I had planned the synthesis of this compound with the intention of obtaining a circulatory and respiratory stimulant (an analeptic).

(quote from his book, at LSD, My Problem Child)

The effects are nothing like schizophrenia anyway.

Thousands of stills don't go far with a couple of hundred million people. The gross effect of Prohibition was that much less alcohol was consumed in America. And, as that blog points out, the crime rate fell. Some people drank more, some people made illicit fortunes, some people got riddled with bullets, but the OVERALL effect was exactly as the legislators intended.
jack campin is seriously deluded, much less alcohol consumed, crime falling?
my opinion is the opposite, crime increased[look at al capone, aman [one of many who made a lot of money out of committing crime during prohibition]
jack, please stop talking complete rubbish, unless you can back up your rubbish with some factual evidence, what evidence is there to prove lees crime was committed,does it not occur to you that perhaps more crime was being committed but not detected, because the police force was corrupt?

You'll have to ask Bobert how he took it...that being said, Bobert and I have been busting each others ass since I first saw his post about him bitching about having to mow the lawn for P-Vine, and having to clean up the yard first. Sometimes things get a little 'heated' when he gets bullheaded about the Democrat Party, and how everyone who doesn't understand the backward ways of the south, must be a KKKer..or Tea Party fanatic...but other than that, he gives really great head!

Actually, as posted before, we musicians are definitely a peculiar people...and I'll have to say one thing to your credit......ummmmm............................... ........ummmm.............ummmmmm..............

..........(can't think of anything)........

No really, since your bit on here a while back, I think it was really a catalyst, to remember, for all of us, to keep busting ass, and to take things a bit more light-heartedly....and for that, (I don't know about those two other Bozos), but I thank you...honestly.

I wonder who died and left him boss...

gnu, It might occur to you, someday, that after all, the Mudcat Forum is mostly musicians. You might think about this, for just a minute...there are people on here that accuse others of being 'trolls', such as you have in the past. Have you ever considered that the 'trolls' are the ones who hijack musicians to focus solely on politics, instead of music??....and music just happens to be a higher calling than politics! Did it ever occur to you that the angst that we throw out to, at, or with, each other on here is an essential tool that lyric writers and musicians, actually use constructively?...without really having to deal with the actual 'hate'?...(except, of course Don Firth who Bobert is still teaching how to eat over the sink, without dribbling onto the floor?..a trick I taught Bobert, because the 'P-Vine' wouldn't let him even eat in the house. He took it far less 'personal' than you have, by self inflicting this hostility upon yourself. Even Don Firth, whom I've gone around with ad nauseum, likened our 'exchanges' to fencing...he was selling stolen lines to his fence...and nobody has hassled DonT for picking both sides of his nose while holding his breath while typing!
Here, you need to lighten up..quit being so hard on yourself, (You can take that any way you want), and stop taking all this so seriously....after all, you can learn from us....because maybe we don't take you so seriously, either....but we can exchange ideas, like writers and artists do. Your posts aren't going to 'change the world'..or even make a dent....but our music may.

So if you want to do something REAL drastic....write and play a REAL FUCKING GREAT piece of music...and if it touches someone's heart, soul or mind, then write another one, even better!...and that one is no 'joke'.

Anyway, that's what we do on here...think of it as an emotional scratchpad....take the 'notes' and the FEELING, and translate it into sound...the kind of sound that is not limited by the concepts of words, but bi-passes that obstruction, and goes straight to the heart.
................OR.......being as we're in THIS thread, read the title, and consider what is being said by whomever started it!

Chill....or as we all heard, back then, 'Maintain'.....

Here's to happy constructive thoughts that frees you to work your craft....
Cheers!

Here's how it really worked... Runners were carrying 100 gallons of shine every night into the cities and there were thousands of runners... Do the math... Those stills were on every creek with fresh water in the South...

I just attended a seminar on the history of moonshine last month and whereas, yeah, the stills were smallish and only produced 10-15 gallons a day, it all added up to a massive amount of shine...

The book is very informative...

This was way beyond just a few stills and a couple hundred gallons... It was an entire industry...

For a lot of people in remote places, Prohibition probably made very little difference. People with a tiny still in a cowshed weren't worth the authorities' while to chase after - but they also didn't produce enough hooch to hurt anybody.

You get a similar drinking culture in the Balkans - people send their fruit crop to a small local distiller and get it back as unlabelled bottles of clear spirit. I'm pretty sure the gummint always knows about it and takes a cut, but big business doesn't. And you don't see many drunks.

The sources I had for the effects of Prohibition on consumption were academic journal articles on paper that I can't now get at. It's remarkably difficult to find an on-line source for such a simple piece of information as estimates of US per capita alcohol consumption over time. There is an easily available table of taxed consumption over time, which obviously doesn't address the point. The link I gave does a good job of shredding the myth that Prohibition was an exceptionally violent period.

I did come across some rather telling secondary sources, though. The American far right (of the Friedmanite and soi-disant "libertarian" persuasion) is scared shitless of the idea that government regulation might ever work. They have a few discussion papers which implicitly accept that, prima facie, the facts suggest that Prohibition did in fact significantly cut overall alcohol consumption and make a large improvement in public health, and then proceed to generate billowing ideological smokescreens to say why you shouldn't believe the obvious facts. So, somehow, they got hold of the same data I've seen.

The Cato Institute (one of the groups taking this line) is substantially funded by Coors.

They make moonshine now here in North Carolina that can be bought at the ABC stores... It's okay but small bubbles... Small bubbles means less alcohol... The P-Vine won't even drink it... Says it tastes bad LOL...

Actually, I can make a quart size Mason jar of good shine last a year... I only drink it if I'm going to be working outside when it is cold outside, like cutting wood... Nice once or so steadies the nerves...

Moonshine was available to anyone who wanted it... It's not some story that has grown legs over the years... It was very, very big..."

Yo, Jack...

You must be kidding, right???

Moonshine was available to anyone who wanted it... It's not some story that has grown legs over the years... It was very, very big...

I have just finished reading "Driving with the Devil, Southern Moonshine, Detroit Wheels and the Birth of NASCAR" which just deal with a sliver of the story... The book was is written by Neal Thompson... You should read this book which just provided a glimpse of just how big this was...

Thank you, GUEST, 6:01...

GfinS has addiction issues...

I keep reading this as "The LDS keeps you sane". I keep wondering what acid you've been eating...

Yeah, Guest. After he reads my above post, it will be interesting to see what kind of wild-assed fiction Goofball makes up about my lurid life as a drug addict.

I'm looking forward to that.

(A little time-release Tylenol when my back starts bothering me. Hard to get high on that stuff, though).
