Smokey Robinson & The Miracles 132

Wiki: The Miracles (also known as Smokey Robinson and the Miracles from 1965) were an American rhythm and blues group that was the first successful recording act for Berry Gordy’s Motown Records. Formed in 1955 by Smokey Robinson, Warren “Pete” Moore, and Ronnie White, the group started off as the Five Chimes, changing their name to the Matadors two years later. The group then settled on the Miracles after the inclusion of Claudette Robinson in 1958. The most notable Miracles lineup included the Robinsons, Moore, White, Bobby Rogers and Marv Tarplin. After a failed audition with Brunswick Records, the group began working with songwriter Berry Gordy, who helped to produce their first records for the End and Chess record labels before establishing Tamla Records in 1959 signing the Miracles as its first act. The group eventually scored the label’s first million-selling hit record with “Shop Around” in 1960 and further established themselves as one of Motown’s top acts with the hit singles, “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me”, “Mickey’s Monkey”, “Going to a Go-Go”,”(Come ‘Round Here) I’m the One You Need”, “Just A Mirage”, “If You Can Want”, “More Love”, “I Don’t Blame You At All”, “Ooo Baby Baby”, “Tracks of My Tears”, “I Second That Emotion”, “Baby Baby Don’t Cry” The Tears of a Clown”,”Love Machine” and “My Girl Has Gone”.

The Miracles in 1962: Bobby Rogers, Marv Tarplin, Ronald White, Claudette Robinson, and Smokey Robinson – Pete Moore had been drafted into the Army.

  3. Fleecing the Poor

    We were in Tennessee. During a motorcade, the President spotted some ugly racial epithets scrawled on signs by a few plain, he called them homely, white women on the edge of the crowd. Late that night in the hotel, long past midnight, he was still going on about how poor whites and poor blacks had been kept apart so that they could separately be fleeced-. ”I’ll tell you what’s at the bottom of it,” he said. “If you can convince the lowest white man that he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll even empty his pockets for you.”

    As I mentioned earlier, the business wing of the Republican Party, which has always been predominate, does not want to screw around with the debt ceiling or close down the government. You can add most Republican governors to that list. Govs. Mary Fallin of Oklahoma, Terry Branstad of Iowa, Scott Walker of Wisconsin, Phil Bryant of Mississippi, and Jack Dalrymple of North Dakota all went on the record as opposing a conflict over the funding for ObamaCare. But it doesn’t really matter. The House Republicans do not give one crap what some governor has to say.

    The governors wanted a farm bill, too. They wanted a bill to fund transportation and housing. You can bet your sweet ass that they wanted a stimulus bill to help them meet their budget shortfalls during the Great Recession. And they all want prompt disaster relief.

    The Tea Bag caucus doesn’t care for this “gimme, gimme, gimme, King of Bacon” attitude. They didn’t come to Washington DC to bring peace, but a sword.

    So, it’s nice that the GOP is divided, but until John Boehner locates his spine, that nice 401(k) balance that you have right now is about to go poof.
