    If I could change the world....

    Totally eliminate special privileges for ANYBODY. Everybody is equal under the law. No exceptions. King, President, or homeless bum, same laws apply to all.
    All laws must be enforced. No "get out of jail free" cards for anyone. All crimes of violence must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, no plea bargains, no reduction of sentences, no early release, no gain time. Three strikes you're in prison forever laws. (Or death penalty.) Applies only to crimes of violence or major instances of fraud and theft. (Life changing for the victim.)

    Total elimination of welfare type programs for all who are able to work. Root, hog, or die!

    Limits on how rich, powerful, and influential any individual or corporation may become. (This one is touchy even for me as I'm a carnivorous capitalist....but there comes a point where a person simply can have so much money that the only reason to acquire more is pure rampant greed. A lot of this will depend on what they apply their money to. Elon Musk's fortune doesn't bother me, because his companies do a lot of good. But a billionaire investor who doesn't employ very many people or produce a useful product....now that needs looking at. )

    Laws to ensure that very rich corporations share their profits among ALL their employees in a fair and equitable manner. A company that could well afford to spend HALF its end of year profits to give every single one of its employees a 100,000 dollar cash bonus would be EXPECTED to do exactly that.

    Government contractor companies would have their wages and pay scales set by the government so as to ensure that the bulk of the contract money actually goes to pay for the contracted product, and not just siphoned directly into the bank accounts of upper management.

    Social media: If it's accessible to the public, it must be politically and socially neutral in the sense that a difference of point of view can not be the basis for any form of punitive action. No banning or censoring of people because they're left or right wing.

    Immigration: Strict enforcement of all immigration laws. Mandatory forced deportation (and other penalties) for any illegal immigrants found. LARGE financial penalties assessed against any person caught employing an illegal worker. (A system is created where you can collect a very substantial bounty for reporting the employer of illegals.)

    Tighten up the justice system regarding handling of violent offenders. (80 percent of gun crime is from recidivists, so sayeth the FBI.) Keep violent criminals behind bars, watch gun crime rates drop quickly and stay down. No gain time, no weak sentences, no suspended sentences, no early release for any violent offense.

    Thanks, thanks a lot. Now I have a blue hair fetish. I guess I'll just ad it to the pile.

    The first young lady really nailed it. Beautiful woman with a beautiful voice, sign me up. Twice.

    If I could change something I would make it so that people couldnt name their videos "Artist name, artist song, (cover)". It's a chickenshit way of screwing with the search algorithms so you get hits on your videos.

    @anitoli and mathews guitars introduce politics into every thread by habit.

    Anyway, I think this blue haired girl's got a great sounding voice. I found out she's based in Nashville and done the circuit there since she was young.
    I predicted Dua Lipa, and she blew up. This girl is my next prediction-she'll do something big soon.

    I enjoyed the girls version better, but I I've heard Clapton do better versions than the one you posted.

    The dudes crack me up though. I would have recommended further editing of them. Like ...to the cutting room floor.

    Yeah its sort of “we’ve got no sense of melody or harmony, so lets just blast out noise”.
    It reminds me of those people who cant paint and buy a canvas and splash colors on it and try to take credit as an artist. :lol:
