    Obama: to explain why he supports the execution of gays in foreign countries. Here he is with his "Good Friend", the Sultan Of Brunei who passed a law to stone gays to death:

    Obama!

    Hey Miata boy, check this out....if you know anything about politics you should know the complexities.

    http://foreignpolicy.com/2014/09/23/obama-to-meet-with-ugandan-defender-of-harsh-anti-gay-law-at-united-nations/


    Obama’s meeting with Kutesa, a nicety that is dictated by U.N. protocol, is scheduled to take place in New York on Wednesday afternoon, prior to a U.N. Security Council summit on foreign terrorists that the U.S. president will chair.

    Obama has voiced concerns about Uganda’s record on gay rights in the past — and the United States cut some assistance the East African country over the homophobic law in June — but few experts expect him to raise the issue with Kutesa.

    "The U.S. has bigger fish to fry at the U.N. this year, including the fight against the Islamic State and Ebola,

    "
    Despite the continued backsliding on gay rights in Uganda, some activists felt that this year’s meeting between the American president and the president of the General Assembly, represents an opportunity for dialogue on the rights of sexual minorities.

    The Dalai Lama (for a true learning experience) or Bill Clinton (for great fun). But I also think Obama would be great if he could talk freely.

    Outside of politics there are probably hundreds that I could think of such as, but not limited to would be Neil Young, David Crosby, Jimmy Page, Mary Bara, John Mayall, Arvo Part, Bob Dylan, Mark Ruess, Ed Welborn, Roger Penske, etc. Long gone, but not forgotten, Igor Stravinsky, and of course Jim, Jimi and Janice (all passed in 1971). And yeah, Grace Slick would also be a hoot although a loud one. And one more, Laurie Anderson.

    Politics though .... the list is only slightly shorter, but two that come to mind would be Bill Clinton and Dick Cheney. Martin O'Malley also comes to mind.

    ^ I didn't think of you as a Dylan fan -- my mother likes him and his documentary is pretty interesting.

    I would have a whole list of questions about her success; how her father coached her as a child; and the benefits of now taking control and mangling her own company. Mine would 100% be Beyoncé!

    "I didn't think of you as a Dylan fan"

    Curious, why on earth not? Now true, there are probably hundreds more from that era that I could name.

    And frankly, just about no one from today's tweet tweet boom boom 120 bpm gay bar disco scene that I can think of. From today's scene, maybe Mark Kozelek because he's kind of a strange dark character, but he doesn't fit the mold above. and maybe Mark Hollis (Talk Talk) as he did some dark brooding stuff, but Hollis quit to raise a family.
