Rassmussen Reports
Health Care Reform
41% Favor Health Care Plan, 51% Oppose

 

“…The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 51% oppose the plan. And as has been the case for months, the emotion’s on the sign of the naysayers: 40% Strongly Oppose the plan, while just 23% Strongly favor it. …”

Support for the president’s health care plan fell to 38%, its lowest ever, just before Thanksgiving. Followed by two weeks at 41%, this marks the lowest extended period of support for the plan yet. With the exception of a few days following nationally televised presidential appeals for the legislation, the number of voters opposed to the plan has always exceeded the number who favor it.

“This suggests that public opinion about the health care plan is hardening,” says Scott Rasmussen, president of Rasmussen Reports. “Despite the fact that most American believe our health care system needs major changes, most are opposed to what Congress is currently doing about it.”

Rasmussen Reports is continuing to track public opinion on the health care plan on a weekly basis, with updated findings released each Monday morning. …”

Rassmussen Reports

Energy Update

47% Blame Global Warming on Planetary Trends, Not Human Activity

“…The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 47% of voters blame global warming on planetary trends, while 37% of voters take the opposite view and blame human activity. Just 5% point to some other reason.

Voters continue to believe the president holds the opposite view. Fifty percent (50%) say President Obama blames global warming on human activity, while only 20% think he blames planetary trends. But another 21% are not sure what the president believes.

These results come as the White House may have to push back plans for its aggressive legislation to combat global warming. That effort included new spending on green technology and jobs but may be too much due to the high level of government spending already accumulated this year.

Belief that human activity is the primary cause of global warming has declined significantly over the past year. In April of last year, the numbers were nearly the mirror image of the current numbers. At that time, 47% blamed human activity and only 34% named long term planetary trends as the reason for climate change. …”

Daily Presidential Tracking Poll

“…The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 27% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-eight percent (38%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -11 (see trends).

A Rasmussen video report notes that 33% want the government to directly hire unemployed Americans. That comes at a time when 67% believe that a year from now unemployment will be at least as high as it is today.

Just 15% support an increase in the gas tax to fund transportation projects.

The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update). Updates are also available on Twitter and Facebook.

Overall, 47% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. Fifty-two percent (52%) disapprove.

In a three-way Generic Ballot test, Democrats attract 36% of the vote, the Tea Party candidate picks up 23%, and Republicans finish third at 18%. …”

The Righteous Brothers

“…The Righteous Brothers were the musical duo of Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield. They recorded from 1963 through 1975, and continued to perform until Hatfield’s death in 2003. Their emotive vocal stylings were sometimes dubbed “blue-eyed soul”.

Medley and Hatfield both possessed exceptional vocal talent, with range, control and tone that helped them create a strong and distinctive duet sound and also to perform as soloists. Medley sang the low parts with his deep, soulful bass-baritone, with Hatfield taking the higher register vocals with his soaring tenor.

They adopted their name in 1962 while performing together in the Los Angeles area as part of a five-member group called The Paramours.[1], which featured John Wimber, one of the founders of the Vineyard Movement, on keyboards. At the end of one particular performance, a Marine in the audience shouted, “That was righteous, brothers!”[2], prompting the pair to adopt the name when they embarked on a career as a duo.

John Wimber (then as Johnny Wimber) brought Bobby Hatfield and Bill Medley together for the band the Paramours in 1962. The Righteous Brothers started their recording career on the small Moonglow label in 1963 with two albums and two moderate hits: “Little Latin Lupe Lu” and “My Babe”.

Their first major hit single was “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'” on the Philles label in 1965. Produced by Phil Spector, the record is often cited as one of the peak expressions of Spector’s Wall of Sound production techniques. It was one of the most successful pop singles of its time, despite exceeding the then standard length for radio play. Indeed, according to BMI[3], “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'” remains the most played song in radio history, estimated to have been broadcast more than eight million times. A little known fact is that the duo were never actually signed to Philles; they remained under contract as artists to Moonglow and were leased to Spector for recording. Spector used Cher (of Sonny & Cher fame) as a backup singer on this and other recordings.

The Righteous Brothers had several other Spector-produced hit singles in 1965, including “Just Once in My Life”, “Ebb Tide” and “Unchained Melody” (originally the B-side of “Hung on You”[4]). There is supposition that “Unchained Melody” was actually produced by Bill Medley, who was used by Spector to occasionally supervise tracks, but this has never been confirmed.

However, the singers did not get along well with Spector personally and their contract was sold on to Verve/MGM Records in 1965. Their next release in 1966, “(You’re My) Soul and Inspiration” was a Phil Spector sound-alike song, produced by Bill Medley, who was able to fully simulate the Spector style of production. It was written by Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann who had co-written “Loving Feeling” with Spector. Medley also used the same arranger, Jack Nitzsche. It quickly became their second #1 US hit, staying on the top for three weeks, but the song failed to reach the British Top 10.

After a few more top 40 hits, including “He” and “Go Ahead And Cry”, their popularity began to decline. Even a collaboration with former Motown a&r chief, ‘Mickey’ Stevenson failed to work. They eventually split up for more than seven years. Medley recorded a few solo recordings on several labels, while Bobby Hatfield teamed briefly with another singer, Jimmy Walker (drummer and one of the singers of the Knickerbockers, of “Lies” fame), using the Righteous Brothers’ name, but neither he nor Medley was able to achieve any significant level of success. In 1974, Medley and Hatfield reunited, performing on the Sonny and Cher Hour.

In 1974, they signed with Haven Records, run by producers Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter, and distributed by Capitol Records. They scored another hit with the Lambert/Potter produced “Rock and Roll Heaven”, a paean to several deceased rock singers; Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Otis Redding, Jim Croce and Bobby Darin are among those mentioned (Croce and Darin died within three months of each other in late 1973, shortly before the song was released): it peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, but failed to chart in the UK. It was updated in 1990 to reflect the deaths of Elvis Presley, Marvin Gaye, Jackie Wilson, Dennis Wilson, John Lennon and Roy Orbison. Several more minor hits on Haven followed, and then the Righteous Brothers found themselves “hitless” again until 1990, although they toured frequently.

Medley also had solo success: In 1984, he scored country hits with “Till Your Memory’s Gone” and “I Still Do” (which crossed over to the adult contemporary charts and later became a “cult” hit with the Carolina Beach/Shag dance club circuit); and in late 1987, his duet with Jennifer Warnes — “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life”, which appeared on the soundtrack for Dirty Dancing — topped the Billboard Hot 100 and earned a Grammy Award and Oscar. He also scored a moderate UK hit in 1988 with a version of “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”. One of Medley’s minor entries, “Don’t Know Much”, was a long running #1 Adult Contemporary & #2 Pop hit in 1989/1990 as a Grammy-winning duet by Linda Ronstadt and Aaron Neville.

In 1990, the original recording of “Unchained Melody” was featured in the hit Patrick Swayze-Demi Moore-Whoopi Goldberg (Oscar winner – Best Supporting Actress) movie “Ghost” and caused an avalanche of requests to Top 40 radio by fans who had seen the movie. This motivated Polygram (who now owned the Verve/MGM label archives) to re-release the song to Top 40 radio where it became a major hit for a second time (their second UK #1) and a greatest hits CD collection called “The Very Best of The Righteous Brothers…Unchained Melody.”[5] was re-issued. The group quickly re-recorded a cover version for Curb Records which also made the charts, and the re-recorded version appears on the budget priced CD “The Best of The Righteous Brothers.” [6]

The Righteous Brothers were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 10, 2003. In 2008, The Righteous Brothers 21st Anniversary television special, filmed at the Roxy on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles in 1983, aired on numerous Public Television stations throughout the United States. Bill Medley is currently performing in Branson / Missouri[7]

Jim Morrison Gets His Pardon

The Doors

“…The Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, California by vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, drummer John Densmore, and guitarist Robby Krieger. They are considered a controversial and influential band, due mostly to Morrison’s cryptic lyrics and unpredictable stage persona. After Morrison’s death on July 3, 1971, the remaining members continued as a threesome until disbanding in 1973.[1]

Despite a career that barely totaled eight years, The Doors still enjoy a huge cult following as well as status in the mainstream music industry as being hugely influential and original. According to the RIAA, they have sold over 32.5 million albums in the US alone.[2] …”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Doors

Jim Morrison

“…James Douglas “Jim” Morrison (December 8, 1943 – July 3, 1971) was an American singer, songwriter, poet, writer and filmmaker. He was best known as the lead singer and lyricist of The Doors and is widely considered to be one of the most charismatic frontmen in rock music history.[1] He was also the author of several books of poetry[1] and the director of a documentary and short film. Although Morrison was known for his baritone vocals, many fans, scholars, and journalists have discussed his theatrical stage persona, his self-destructiveness, and his work as a poet.[2] He was ranked number 47 on Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Singers of All Time”.[3]

The Last Days of Jim Morrison

A rare look into the rock god’s journals

STEPHEN DAVIS

“…On Monday, after a second night spent lying next to her decomposing boyfriend, Pamela consented to a burial as soon as possible. Ronay walked across the river and found the house of Bigot, the undertaker, in the shadows of the twin spires of Notre Dame Cathedral, where an old monastic cloister had once stood. Mr. Guirard, the director, explained that everyone wanted to rest in Pere-Lachaise, and there were very few spaces left. Ronay pleaded that Douglas Morrison had been a famous young American writer. Guirard brightened. “A writer? I know a space — in Division Eighty-nine, very close to another famous writer: Mr. Oscar Wilde.”

Ronay was shocked. “No, I beg you, not next to Oscar Wilde! Please — can you find another space?” A small double plot was found, near a memorial to victims of Nazi oppression in Paris, in a less desirable location on the other side of the hill. The funeral was arranged for Wednesday morning, July 7th. On Monday afternoon, the undertakers came to the flat, dressed Jim in a too-large dark suit and stuffed him into a too-small wood-veneer coffin, the cheapest one Bigot offered. Pamela gathered all the pictures of herself that she had and placed them in the coffin. The coffin was then sealed tightly with screws to retard further decay in the hot, dark apartment.

Pamela later said she had never seen Jim in a suit before. She said she thought he looked kind of cute. …”
