no the entire congregation was usually tangled up in some kinda spiritual frenzy and were clapping on 1 & 3. this lovely rhythmic activity isn't exclusive to church activities and can also be witnessed at many sporting events and other  gatherings that contain a large quantity of wasps in attendance.

i'm sorry man, but this drastic generalization is just incorrect.

sure there are people without rhythm, but using it as a political joke is...well...a joke.

ohhh....now i get it.

while i don't disagree with the fact that the majority of creative artsy type of people are inclined to be liberals, i do disagree with the general assumption that conservatives don't have rhythm.  

look at every church in america with a band on sunday mornings.....



Oh my goodness Laughing  Laughing  It really is true.. They don't..

Ya know, Grant. I heard your recordings at your site and they sound really nice. You sing great and write nice tunes. I'm sure you clap on 2 and 4.

But really, it's AMAZING to see large gatherings of republicans clap to American soul music of any kind. It's overwhelmingly 1 and 3.. In the case of the big churches, they had to be trained! Besides, who says all the people in those churches are republicans?

For some reason. It's true. Most people who identify themselves as conservative republicans, just can't seem to get their groove on.

i'm even sorrier but this most certainly is correct

i can assure you this aint no joke and only a rhythmically challenged retardigan would think it was.
ohhh....now i get it.
getting it or not doesn't change the fact that most white folks clap on 1 & 3 and not only can Republicans not Rock they cant even start a self help group to help them with this vexing problem that seems to afflict all of them. what they will do is form a committee to study the problem and try to shift the blame to anyone for the apparent lack of rockability in the republican camp.

so why don't you and herr philbeck break out those copies of Mein Kampf you both have hidden under the mattress and see if the answer to rocking is contained within or at the very least continue the practice of trading nugent bootlegs in search of the lost chord. either way these activities should keep you both busy enough to prevent you from stirring the shit around here for a day or two. now go do something good for the country for a change.

respectfully yours

Most liberals out there would assume that church-goin "god-feerin" (as another poster cleverly put it) are republican loyal, simply for the abortion position.

Doesn't hurt that the assumption is correct.

dearest grant,
i thought you were gonna finally use those superpowers for good but nope you are caught once again red handed stirring the pot. maybe a future in the culinary arts would more up your alley because clapping on 2 & 4 isn't a requirement for boiling a weeney until it splits.
most respectfully yours

It is appropriate enough that a simpleton, who sees a link between political affiliations and timing, would make the first Nazi comparison.  If you spouted your rhetoric to your clients you'd be flipping burgers.  I'd be more careful about who you pop your mouth off too.

herr philbeck,
touched a nerve have we. a simpleton i may be but i have no fear of saying what i feel in fear of losing any clients. this would go totally against the known universal fact  that Republicans Can't Rock. why would i want to record someone that can't play or sing or keep a simple back beat with a tambourine.  my studio stays as busy as i want and any client would only need to take a glance at the fridge art  displayed in the lounge to know that im not a fan of the war criminals who stole the white house and ruined our country. matter of fact if anyone wants to use my wireless network over here i give them the password of cheneysucksgoatcock and they get right on the world wide web. you are more than welcome to pull up in front of my house and sign on the next time you are in town if you feel the need to check email or spout anymore pig vomit.
more than anything please remember jesus loves you and i'm still trying to.
respectfully yours
brian the simpleton

Which Church? Some of the oldest and most active churches in America are filled with Democrats who think abortion is wrong but that it's none of your business unless YOU are pregnant..

Are you with child? Grant? Is there something you aren't telling us?

I'm 44 years old and have been playing music for a living since I was 15 years old and it happens to be true that the HUGE majority of right wing people I deal with in music can't swing to save their life and are way to stiff to play R&B music to my liking. And you know Grant, it IS all about me, and my liking..

For I am the God of Hell Fire.. Right?

or something or other..and stuff..
