Life has evolved into wake up, shit, shower, shampoo, shave and feed the dog. And I am not unhappy.
Lot of that has to do with things like, next weekend I’m going to upstate New York. Going to have a weekend with my wife.
That is already nice just thinking about it so I have normal expectations.
The bad part is I have to fly in. It already feels worse than entering Russia. I mean, it is true: the terrorists won. The lying and the cowardice of the USA have done more damage to the American way of life than the despicable jihadists who flew the planes into buildings and killed my friend.
Who’d have thought it. Bin Laden has been on his rampage longer than Dillinger and we can’t catch him because we’re weak sissies who join Tea Parties instead of being proud and brave.
Some moron, one moron, sticks some explosive in his underwear so now all America has to be fondled by guys who struggled to finish high school and couldn’t score well enough on the SAT to get into Community College.
In the rest of the world everyone always knew I was an American and in a good way. I was laconic, got things done, walked proudly like I owned the planet but still cared enough to be polite and courteous. As opposed to the kind of Americans we’ve become: Loud, bellicose scared little bullies, too weak to care about anything except our own own corn syrup filled butts.
Despite that I’m going to have a great weekend. I’ll comply with the TSA’s perverted regulations so I can get to see someone I care about.
The Republicans are still trying to foment a civil war. They’re disgusting. There’s that Jackass from the south who laughed at the pin head who asked, “Who’s job is it to shoot Obama?” Instead of
It used to be that the Republicans and the Democrats actually respected each other and respected the office. He may be a jerk but he is still the President and demands the respect we must give to him and his office.
James Watt, Raygun’s Secretary of Interior, was fired for making a public racist joke. Now that racism is applauded in terms of taking our country back. Back to about 1920 with 7 day work weeks and children working in sweat shops for 16 hours a day.
Why isn’t Obama standing up to the Koch Brothers and Roger Ailes? Why does he let them have the country and simper in the White House. I voted for him. I wish I’d voted for Clinton. She’d never have stood for the sort of abuse the Republicans are handing out to my country.
Obama has disappointed me.
Why hasn’t he called out the National Guard to protect the demonstrators in Wisconsin. The police are standing with the demonstrators. The people are with them. Against them are the Republicans, corrupt Supreme Court Justices who have violated their terms of office and billionaires who think they deserve even more money.
Why isn’t he in the lines with the people.
Instead of protecting the RAIA why isn’t Obama protecting the people. I thought he believed more in people then he did in corporations. Apparently not.
Why hasn’t he challenged Rush Limbaugh’s drug addled corpulent self to a One on One match to demand he stop insulting Michelle Obama and his children? Why does Limbaugh get to lie and say he’s an American when all he does is try and destroy this great country. Limbaugh is in the pay of the Emirate and the Corporations. He needs to be brought into the light.
When the revolution comes I thought it would be led by the people but instead it’s apparent it will be led by billionaires against the people.
It’s just me. I’ve never trusted anybody who remotely believes in The Rapture. How can you trust anyone who wants everybody except a couple of their friends and a few of the family dead.
I don’t want anybody dead. The Dead leave vacuums. Even Saddam Hussein dying left a vacuum. I’m pretty certain he didn’t see himself as evil, but the vacuum he created means some innocent child will have to grow into it. The same way that the collapse of the USSR meant that America had to reinvent itself as Stalinist Russia.
First time I ever heard of the Dorktones was when someone sent me a cover they’d done of one of my songs. It was pretty good. But better than that was the cover the Dorktones did of Balloon Farm’s “A Question of Temperature”.
I found out the band comes from Rotterdam! Rotterdam, for those who don’t know Rotterdam is like a rougher tougher version of Amsterdam but without the tourists.
I like the Netherlands. It’s a wild, crazy cool country as afflicted with issues and blight as any place is but the Dutch just seem to handle it better.
They have a tradition of working hard and playing harder, of respecting each other and not being too concerned with what you might be doing. If I could make a living there it would be my second favorite place to live.
And if there are bands as good as the Dorktones it would be a wise choice.
If you visit their website you can download most of their stuff. You can get their latest “Pop Go The Dorktones” here.
It’s worth the trouble. This isn’t their best. That would probably be “The Sound of Music” but it’s very good. Percussive guitar, good harmonies and all covers of great songs, and the song is always the thing, I think.
