The Mystery Of EQing… Explained! (presented?)

Share Button

Through all our lives, we, as both general consumers and musicians, have been using and adjusting an EQ on one gadget or another. It seems like such an easy concept – you turn the treble down, yuo turn the bass up….

OK – Most normal people do that… But I’m a bass player! I’m not normal!!!!

Anyway, there is a lot more to EQing than meets the eye. Here is an article that explain the in’s and out’s of EQ’s.

Marco Rubio – Inquisitor!

I’m not a fan of Tim Geithner by any stretch of the imagination, but I’m going to defend him here. He’s right that that the marginal increase being bandied about won’t have much of an impact on job creation at all (scaling back on onerous regulation would be much more effective). What really gets me are the cheap high school debating trick being employed by Rubio in this exchange. For instance,  Rubio does not let Geithner ever finish an answer before he’s peppered with another question. Also, Rubio keeps asking questions about statements made by his boss, Barrack Obama. Those statements were made made during an election year attempt by the President to try and sway a few Conservative minded voter to the Democrats. It was an obvious ploy, a crass move by the President that didn’t pay off. It wasn’t Geithner who extended the tax rates. I don’t mind the point being raised, but too much time is spent by Rubio repeating this strategy over and over again. Geithner can’t answer it! That decision is on his boss.

It’s obvious the new bill, which is labeled as a jobs bill, is not a jobs bill. It’s yet another crass cynical political joke intended to highlight our political divide vs any remedy for the current recession, trying to be passed off as a jobs bill. Concentrate on that.
