    Nothing to Lose w special guests Pepper McGowan & Brother Tim

    in Entertainment

    Pepper McGowan has a resume that includes Photographer, Accountant, and a stint as a sideshow contortionist. The diminutive McGowan fell unintentionally into performing publicly by asking to use a piano as a bar was closing. "I had this tune and words I had to douche from my brain, but no instrument where I was living. I am not a musician as much as an accomplice to auditory voyeurism." The bar turned on the sound and the recently emancipated minor was booked for her first gig. She s into "I mess around with ideas and sounds in my head - I think someone decided it was a form of music somewhere but I won't deny I'm a complete hack." She has usually been described as a self taught singer/pianist, though she admits lacking the self-discipline to actually sit still, so "my hands land on chordish places by gravity and fidgety responses to the words in my head." That "Auditory Voyeurism" has since taken on a life of its own.

    BROTHER TIM is the author of a new book titled Nomad: Darkness into Light. He also founded God's Soldiers, a motorcycle ministry. For eighteen years Tim was hired to protect the well-being of the world’s top celebrities including; Diddy, Pamela Anderson, DMX, and Jennifer Lopez, but this time it’s HIS life that was saved. Tim's life is a crazy one. He made national news when he was arrested with his client 50 Cent, he was in a car with a multi-platinum recording artist when it was shot at over 200 times, and he died on an operating table. All of these events caused Tim to leave his dangerous profession with a six figure salary and accept his calling as a full-time minister.

    Hello World. Is there any lingering doubt anymore? Republicans are flat out, without a doubt, in your face, insulting American people who have found themselves out of work in this historic economic downturn.

    Let's face it, this is the greatest mass of unemployment since the Great Depression.

    You would think Repubs would ensure the extension of unemployment insurance benefits for over 1million Americans, since the freak policies deregulation, and contortionist trade agreements, via freak legislation brought this economic hell hole on.

    Thanks again . . . Repubs!!!

    Republicans have told Americans:
    1.They are "spoiled."
    2.That "unemployment insurance is a disincentive to work."
    3.Be careful with that unemployment insurance it could go from being a "safety net" to a "hammock."
    4.Unemployment insurance will "basically" be used to "go out and blow on drugs" and therefore drug testing should be implemented.
    5.Unemployment insurance is like feeding "stray animals" Americans need to "quit feeding stray animals because they breed."
    6.Oh and of course the old...the extension of unemployment insurance may result in "hobos."

    H.R. 4213 The Amendment to extend unemployment insurance benefits to 1.2 million Americans was voted down yesterday. The sad, and infuriating vote tally was: 57/41. All Republicans and Senator Ben Nelson voted against this legislation.

    In an unprecedented economic situation, this is yet another Congressional slap in the face of The American People!!!

    Meanwhile, all who voted against the American people, those same taxpaying Americans they voted against, pick up the tab for their taxpayer salaries, pensions, health care (with public option), cost of living allowances, and the benefit of voting for their own Congressional raises.

    Thanks Repubs!!!
