Response to 90-percent (Reply #16)

17. In response to the above post..

Gee, 90%, you claim that I "seem to know very little about what Zappa said or did

over the entirety of his career".

Really?..Well, I don't "see" any links to your supposed special knowledge of Zappa.

Assuming, nonetheless, that what you've written is true, you'll have to excuse me, again, if I'm not overwhelmed by his going all "over the country on his own dime to debate the PMRC hearings on any TV or radio show that would have him"

Well, big effing deal...As a recording artist who made his name pushing the envelope he had a VESTED interest in doing so.

As for his being a self-described “Constitutional Fundamentalist”, call me, again, unimpressed, since that puts him squarely OUT of the progressive camp and into that of either the Tea Party or Ron Paul.

In any case, Gawd bless your overweening hero worship -- I tend to avoid that sort of thing, myself.

Hopefully, you'll some day grow beyond that and being "a frightened wage slave" that doesn't

have what you view as Zappa's "courage and drive".
