Description
It is interesting studying about the depression era and how Franklin Roosevelt would give radio broadcasts in a warm kind of way and people loved the soft sell. How people would break into prison to obtain food. It is amazing even today how the extreme rich are taking over so much.

I just heard about on a major San Francisco radio station how the rich are cobbeling up property (houses) by the truckloads and forcing renters to form union because they are in such a helpless state. It is a terrible thing that is happening to America, how the rich are taking so much and literally raping the poor of their money to where they have so little. Especially the handicapped (mental and physical).

Luckily we have a governor that is limiting the rich in our county to where they can't get funding where they need it unless they do low income help, such as affordable housing, But boy the rich scream to the high heavens, It is obsene how a house in the San Francisco area is eight hundred thousand dollars and over in Tennessee is worth not even one hundred thousand dollars. I understand how great the weather is in the bay area, but truly the middle income people are being forced out of the county :( People that where raised in that county.

Every time
you stop by I get tickled because it could be said, at least I think that you could be one of the finest pianists on the PLANET that does original material of her own ! It's an honor to have you stop by!

Tour de force, Bill. The evocative black and white images give the song such poignancy. Your use of various stylings and syncopated timings in the guitar work is so creative and compelling. I really enjoyed the performance. You are raising the MJ bar very high here... Thanks, Peter.

A Silver dime would be better
One of these days we will wake up and discover our currency is worthless. Most of the world already knows it. Until then I'm glad to have a roof over my head, an internet connection, a Kindle(love to read) and hey that air conditioning doesn't hurt in Texas.

Great job on the guitar and vocals. Love the way you are learning new things and incorporating them in your music.

Sorry from 6 strings...
You bring out the pain and the hopelessness that is part of so many people's lives not only in the Depression Era, but in our own as well. ... And your rich, full voice fills the space with a beautifully-pitched sound, too. Some elegant guitar pickin' throughout makes this piece a real gem.
