With a guard at every door. And the vaults are stuffed with silver. But the story of how Yip came up with the lyrics is also great. Jay Gorney had the melody and they loved it. But it was too strong for a song about a man who lost his woman, too strong about a woman who lost her man. It was what they were writing. Torch songs. And they walked through Central Park to come up with an idea for this tune they had.
After the song… you know at this state this was a working man and a soldier. They used to tell me I was building a dream And so I followed the mob When there was earth to plow or guns to bear I was always there right on the job. They used to tell me I was building a dream With peace and glory ahead Why should I be standing in line Just waiting for bread?
A song that, as someone said contains the whole story of the Great Depression and its consequences in one sentence. So he went to Hollywood with Edelaine, his first wife, my half-brother, and they also invited Yip to stay with them. He tried to put on a couple of shows. He used local talent and out of work actors and actresses. It spent three years in New York, played London. It was a big show. Major actor and commie. They closed that show really quickly. I mean the manager ran off with the cash, the electric blew out and other dirty tricks.
They sabotaged that show. But then he started telling about how his father got US citizenship. The Sage of Monticello was such a prophetic fellow and according to his likes, he wrote the Bill of Rights. All of our problems have a solution in what Mr. Jefferson wrote. And they shut him up. Was outside the door. Do you know that the American Allegiance is gonna come out and picket you if you put this music on?
FBI agents would follow me to school and spoke to the principal of my high school. They made it impossible for him to work so my mother was forced to go work. He must have been when this happened. He worked with other black listed writers and it was quite literally a conspiracy to keep these people off the market.
I left the country that prosecuted my daddy. Without the legal mechanisms of arbitration, disputes are often settled with violence. The more money spent on enforcement, the more lucrative and risky the business, and the more violence results. Economists have estimated that the drug war increases homicides by as much as 50 percent, and the Justice Department has estimated that 2 million crimes are stopped every year by private gun ownership.
Few policies would cut down on crime more than ending the drug war and repealing gun laws. Drug prohibition does more to make citizens unsafe than any other factor.
Just as alcohol prohibition gave us Al Capone and the mafia, drug prohibition has given us the Crips, the Bloods and drive-by shootings. Now, since the War on Drugs began, murder rates have doubled.
The cause-effect relationship is clear. Prohibition is putting innocent lives at risk. What's more, drug prohibition also inflates the cost of drugs, leading users to steal to support their high priced habits.
Prohibition puts your property at risk. Finally, nearly one half of all police resources are devoted to stopping drug trafficking, instead of preventing violent crime.
The bottom line? By ending drug prohibition venitists would double the resources available for crime prevention, and significantly reduce the number of violent criminals at work in your neighborhood. Venitis pints out the war on drugs has cost trillions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of lives with no results. Drug use is rampant and violence even more brutal and widespread. All the things that have been done in the war on drugs haven't made any difference.
All the people involved in law enforcment, treatment, and prevention have been wasting their time, misguided by politicians. Citizens have the right to decide how best to protect themselves, their families and their property. Citizens who have guns in their homes sleep more comfortably because of it.
Studies show that where gun ownership is illegal, residential burglaries are higher. A man with a gun in his home is no threat to you if you aren't breaking into it. The police do not provide security in your home, your business or the street. They show up after the crime to take reports and do detective work. The poorer the neighborhood, the riskier it is for peaceful residents.
Only an armed citizenry can be present in sufficient numbers to prevent or deter violent crime before it starts, or to reduce its spread. Interviews with convicted felons indicate that fear of the armed citizen significantly deters crime. Foolish politicians and police now seek to ban semi-automatic rifles. They ignore the fact that only honest citizens will comply; criminals will still have them. Such a ban will only increase the criminals' ability to victimize the innocent.
Pote tha kanei Xasteria, When it's Clear Day! Mikis Theodorakis's song makes it clear that Greeks on a clear day will use guns to clear Athens from Graecokleptocrats! Eurokleptocrats are in cahoots with Orthodox mafias and Orthodox oligarchs.
The three main Orthodox crime syndicates are the Tambov gang from St. Petersburg and Izmaylovskaya gang and Solntsevskaya Brotherhood from Moscow. Their activities focus on political corruption, church corruption, protection money, blackmail, drugs trade, shipping, commodity trade, and natural resources. Orthodoxy's circle of tycoons, such as aluminium magnate Oleg Deripaska, banking magnate Vitaly Malkin, and shipping magnates, have been investigated by Europol for involvement in crimes of Eurokleptocrats.
To help law enforcement with the task of analyzing a suspected child pornographer's computer , new software developed by a computer science professor at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University brings deleted photographs back from the computer's trash and searches them for potentially explicit images of children and differentiates them from images of adult.
The program scans for faces of children, nudity and other features to help flag images that could possibly be illegal contraband. The program was designed to help law enforcement, defense and intelligence officials and private investigators hired by the private sector, Memon said.

Kennedy Profile in Courage Award, this year given to taxmonger California legislators who demonstrated the pseudocourage to raise taxes as a solution to that state's budget crisis!
Kennedy spoke to taxmonger Vieira, along with award winners taxmonger California State Senators Darrell Steinberg and Dave Codgill, but it was the Republican, Codgill, who was singled out by the Today co-anchor for his willingness to cross party lines as Vieira asked: "You're a Republican. You reached across to the Democrats. As a result, the voters rejected the compromise and your own party voted you out of your leadership position. So in retrospect, was it worth it, Dave?
He looked pretty much the way I felt, as though he might not have slept much. His face froze. He was listening to every word, but he had retreated. I tried to sound calm, normal, down-to-earth. I wanted him to emote, to tell me how touching or charming or surprising—or something, anything—he found the whole business.
I wanted him to give me some memorable quotes for when I told Mom this story. Finally, he thanked me and, again scrutinizing my face, held his hand out limply. The exaggeratedly effeminate gesture seemed like a test. Would I accept him as this person, his own person—a bit of a diva, a queen dismissing a subject—and not just my version of him, a maker of extraordinary music?
I smiled. We shook hands. I thanked him and left. Back at my office, I called Mom. She believed me. He was only Sean is amazing.
Sean comes from a musical family. His mother was my voice teacher. I was an accountant and he was the helpdesk IT guy. When my computer broke down, I went to Sean and he would get me back online. We were doing gigs on weekends. Sean and Shaun on their first international tour. Spanish is my second language. In , we went to South America and then to Europe and so on.
One of them is going to take me to the Lapland. I was scared to take a picture with him back then. She loves the Greek mythology, especially the Goddess Athena.
The Iliad and the Odyssey, were her favorite bedtime stories as a child. May both your wishes become true. Thank you for sharing the memories. Christina loves jazz and rock, Led Zeppelin and the Doors. She sung Wish you Were Here in highschool. I met her last summer in Spetses. She is an amazing person. She stands out with her modesty and sensitivity.
Singing has always been my natural expression. I think that I first sang and then spoke J. I went to a music kindergarden and learned to play the guitar and piano.
During my musicology studies at the University of Athens, I took my first lesson of Opera singing and immediately fell in love. I admire Germany because it values education, effiency and hard work. But my first month was a cultural shock with many misunderstandings. I went there at 9. At She told me that I was late!
When the lesson is at 10, I have to ring at 9. Of course, in Italy and in Greece is totally the opposite. Were you nervous? I immediately felt at home and had no stage freight. But when I step on stage, I transform myself and feel free. I like the connection that I have with the audience. The roles were good and I got experience, working and studying at the same time. My first role was the Queen of the Night, a turning point which opened a new horizon for me. Opera theaters all over the world invite you to perform it.
Do you have a special connection? Many coincidences connect me with this role. The Queen of the Night is challenging and demanding, like extreme sports. Her arias are amongst the most difficult in the Operatic literature — the second one is the most powerful moment in the play, one of the hardest arias ever.
So when I started singing, I did not have these high notes and I never imagined that I would be able to do it. So I have to look for other characters to differentiate. I feel that I transform into a totally different person as soon as I put on costume and make up. I have to stay healthy! So I have to take good care of myself, with a healthy life style, yoga and nutrition. You have to give your self physically, mentally and emotionally. And love it with passion, from the bottom of your heart.
I like giving hope to other people, help them feel positive and find the power and the good things inside them. I feel that music does this. I forget my daily life, I just connect with the audience and feel like one moment of eternity.
I just love to sing. This is my passion and way of life. Official website and contact information. What makes this performance unique is that the play is in English, directed by a Greek and interpreted by Greek actors. Interview in Greek follows. The biggest challenge for me is the people that I work with. One of the reasons that I took this job is because it gives me the opportunity to meet people and share our experiences, worries and thoughts.
I deeply appreciate the value of collaboration. A good team is what challenges us to exceed our limits. Unfortunately, collaboration is missing in all aspects of our lives in this country. Now going back to your original question, my answer is that to me, a classical play is much more challenging and attractive that a modern one.
Although I lived and studied in NY for several years, I must confess that in the beginning I had headaches at the end of the rehearsals. But as time goes by, it all becomes a matter of habit. The actors had some difficulties too but soon they overcame them, because of their working experience with the English language.
All in all, it was a great voyage. Are mostly Greeks or foreigners? Our production has been expensive because high quality is important to us. Thankfully, we achieved our goal with the support of our sponsor Zannis Fradzeskos , owner of Nammos seaside restaurant, who covered part of our production costs. Photo courtesy of L. Acropolis Museum. Which would be the modern face of Antigone in order to shock the Greek audience today?
