And the rage...for whatever cause you expouse starts at Fergeson


   Well the Grand Jury released its finding of "No Bill" against the officer Darren Wilson for shooting Michael Brown in self defense....so after 3 months of preparation for the jury...and this is the end results:
     I heard that the LSM, propaganda arm of the Democrats, and of the regime Prime time media cut off the District Attorney explaining how the evidence was collected, and the results where it showed what happened versus what the perception was.  They cut him off after the verdict.  I was listening to the news radio station WSB Radio 95.5 FM and AM750 and they played the entirety of the District Attorney statement and even played the reporters asking him questions.   Kudo's to them for that
     Now we have all these various groups that have adopted the Michael Brown shooting as latest cause to support their agenda, we have the Occupy crowd down there, the various race hustlers, the communist party, the environmental groups, the LGBT groups and any body else that has an axe to grind against the system.  I have been telling people at work that it will get worse on Friday and Saturday.  They ask me "Why?"   I reply that the people stirring all the crap up are anti-capitalist and black Friday is a big shopping day, I can see them causing a disturbance to "represent"their cause. 


     We will be out of town on Thanksgiving and returning Friday evening and we will not be going through Atlanta but around it.  We will make a point of avoiding all major cities, something about being stuck on an interstate that is closed due to a "disturbance by Minority Urban Youths" gives me the heebee jeebee's.  I also will be carrying more firepower than normal.  I would by far rather have the weapons and not need it than wish I had it if the situation requires. 
     On a different note, I do feel for Officer Wilson, even though he was cleared of all wrong doing, he will undoubtedly have to face the racial bias of the Department of Justice, and of course all the civil lawsuits.  This is why I am glad that I am not a police officer, I always wanted to be one, it is fascinating work and that kind of job does appeal to my nature.  But being a minority policeman in a majority town has its own set of problems.  If I was officer Wilson, I would drop off the face of the planet....Yes it sucks...but that is the life in Obama's America.  he will be hunted down by every liberal group and some of them will try to "extract social Justice" from him.   I would avoid all contacts with the media...they ain't his friend and will try to look for ways to make him look foolish or worse.
     It will be interesting to see how things play out.

Monday Music Andy Gibb "Shadow Dancing"

I am old enough that I remember "Disco", and I actually liked it...well most of it...some of it was really strange.  The "Studio 54" was endemic of the era along with the solid gold dancers on TV.  I was a young teenager when Disco exploded partly because of the movie "Saturday Night Fever" and other movies.  I used to listen to music when I was growing up, I always had music playing in the background and I still have a bunch of my "Ronco Records" that had a bunch of disco songs on it.  The early 70's was known for the "folk music" and I considered it boring and Disco was a total change up from it.  We went from " Me and you and a dog named Boo" to "Night on Disco Mountain".  I have this song on my mp3 collection, and whenever I hear it I think of the South park episode where Mr Garrison gets a nose job and the cartoonist use the likeness of "David Hasslehoff" from Knight rider fame.


 

"Shadow Dancing" is a disco song performed by English singer Andy Gibb that reached number one for seven weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1978. The song was later sampled in the title track of Skrillex's 2010 debut EP, My Name Is Skrillex. Albhy Galuten (who also produced this song) arranged the song with Barry Gibb.

The song was written by Andy and his brothers (Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb) of "BeeGee's" fame in Los Angeles, while the trio of brothers were working on the film Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. "And one night," Andy would recall, "while we were relaxing, we sat down and we had to start getting tracks together for the album" (also titled Shadow Dancing, which would eventually hit #7 on the U.S. album charts). "So we literally sat down and in ten minutes, we had a group going, (singing) the chorus part. As it says underneath the song, we all wrote it, the four of us." While Andy Gibb would have three more Top 10 hits in the U.S., this would be his final chart-topping hit in America.
According to Billboard's Book Of Number One Hits, Gibb became the first solo artist in the history of the U.S. pop charts to have his first three singles hit the number-one spot. Additionally, "Shadow Dancing" was listed by Billboard as being the number one single of 1978. In addition the song peaked at number eleven on the soul chart and sold 2.5 million copies in the United States alone.[4] Its two B-sides "Let It Be Me" appeared on US version and "Too Many Looks In Your Eyes" was from his previous album Flowing Rivers.


In July that year, Gibb performed "Shadow Dancing" at the Jai-Alai Fronton Studios in Miami, when Barry, Robin and Maurice unexpectedly joined him on stage, and sang this song with him. It was the first time that all four brothers performed together in concert.

 
And yes there is a Babylon5 episode called "Shadow Dancing" it is based on the ongoing "Shadow War"  This is a 3 minute clip from that episode.   Yes I couldn't resist....:)

Schoolhouse Rock.....The Modern Version....

I have posted quite a few "Schoolhouse Rock" video's on my blog. and the most popular one is"The Bill", this one explains how a bill can become law.  Schoolhouse Rock was a staple when I would watch cartoons on Saturday morning.  it is a fond memory that I have of my childhood, as most people have.

     Original version

    But since we have entered the modern age of Obama, the traditional ways that have worked for over 200 years are no longer being used for legislation. 
Apparently NBC blocked this on "Copyright law's"..I wonder how much pressure the Present regime put on NBC to pull it since it was unfavorable to the Messiah.

      Our founding fathers had designed a system where they believed that they had formed a system of government that would support the ideals of Freedom and individual liberty.  They also knew that as long as the people were educated, that the ideals of freedom would flourish.  But in the modern age of Obama, the people are no longer educated on the ideals of freedom, they are educated on what free stuff they can get from the government, and all it would take is to support the policies of the government.  The people have sold out their birth-rite on the promises of free stuff.  As long as they get "their stuff" they will give their loyalty to the government.  Here is the danger of slavery, not the physical kind, but the more insidious slavery of spirit.  Once enslaved as such, the person sees everything as a "race to keep the free stuff coming".  They no longer have hope of their spirit being free, to pursue their dreams....their hope is replaced by the hope that their EBT card gets loaded at the beginning of the month.  Their spirit is crushed by the slavery that they willingly signed on for with the promise of "Free Stuff."  They have sold their soul into bondage and the bondage will consume them.
      I am a fan of the show "Babylon5"  and the character of G'kar played by the late Andreas Katsulas made a speech of freedom that resonated.  It is one of the favorite clips from the fans from that 5 year run of the show.

  •     This is being co-opted by a bunch of groups that have a social axe to grind, or it serves a purpose,  From what I have read on verious news agencies, the Ferguson protest is being driven by outside agitators.   You have the usual black race hustlers making an appearance, you also have the Holder Justice department or parts of FEDGOV coordinating activities relating to the protest.  You also have the "Social justice" activist making an appearance, one even got her car stolen,

    No Justice, No Peace!
    Elizabeth Vega is one of the Ferguson protest leaders. She protested at sports venues and attempted a banner drop. She co-led the St Louis Symphony interruption, was arrested at the pumpkin smashing, yelled at the St Louis Post Dispatch protest, and helped block traffic with her freakshow in Clayton yesterday.

    Mike Brown protesters from Ferguson disrupted the St. Louis Symphony in St. Louis City in October. (KRON)
    While yelling “F*ck the Police!” apparently her car got stolen.
    Do you think she’ll file a police report requesting they help her now?
    Elizabeth Vega: “So while debriefing after the action my car got stolen.”

    Her tweets expressing anger that Nixon called a state of emergency in part due to the rising crime and criminal elements associated with the protests are interspersed with others decrying the car theft.
    vega tweets
    Perhaps she could stop encouraging others to break the law?
    You hang with looters, you get looted.

         Also making a appearance are the "occupy crowd" you know the ones that in 2012 squatted on various parcels of property and made a nuisance out of themselves.  Well the "Occupy" movement would have failed if it wasn't for the unions supporting them.  I remember reading of a SIEU vehicle dropping off supplies at  the Occupy sites....you know the SIEU...the government union.  the only union that actually increased in size since Obama got elected.  the ones that during the townhall meetings where Obamacare was hotly debated, the ones that brought in agitators to intimidate the locals that were pissed about the passage of Obamacare, from the backroom deals and sheer bribery used to push it through on a strictly partyline vote.
             So we have the occupy crowd, along with their union enablers making an appearance.  We also have the environmental movement making an appearance trying to tie in the thug shooting with "environmental Justice".  Even the LGBT lobby is making an appearance with this trying to link their agenda with the shooting of "the Saint of Swisher Sweet" by that Racist Sexist cop who is a symbol of the repressive patriarchal society that suppressed sexual identity.
         There is a tumblr website that is a focal point for the protest that is planned for 83 cities, this is much bigger than a regular smash and loot mob that normally forms up after the local blacks are outraged about a Police vs a thug shooting.
       

         
              
    Missouri's governor has now preemptively declared a 30-day state of emergency and called out the National Guard — and the grand jury hasn't even made its decision yet!
    Basically, it's on.
    Ferguson, however, is not the only city set to hold protests immediately following the Darren Wilson grand jury announcement.
    Actually, they aren't even being referred to as protests anymore. They are now being called "planned responses."
    A Tumblr page for something called the "Ferguson National Response Network" has posted a very organized list with graphics for each location (something which, if it's as scripted as the rest of this situation has been and continues to be, will be expertly timed with the holidays coming up).
        
    View image on TwitterView image on Twitter
    Community. We train. We protest.
    The organizers have also released a list of 19 "Proposed Rules of Engagement."
    Wow. Just wow. This is not your average civil disobedience. Martha Stewart has thrown less organized birthday parties than this. There are White House functions with less planning and training involved.
    Anyone else get the sense that this whole thing has been co-opted? Think about it.
    When you're mad about something that's wrong with the system, what do you do if you want to protest it? You pull out a black marker, get a poster board, call up your friends, maybe send out a few Tweets or Facebook messages, then you find a corner and start protesting.
    You don't get so angry with the system that you first a) write a proposed rules of engagement list, b) start fundraising campaigns, c) set up highly coordinated protests in 83 cities, d) coordinate mass informational meetings and finally e) hold direct action trainings then get ready to protest.
    What average, random person has the time and money to pull off all that off properly?
    Sure people have been protesting this for months now, but still. What monster has Ferguson now mutated into? Who is ultimately behind it, driving the agenda?
    Many of the people who showed up to protest in Ferguson from the beginning were coming from out of town. There were definite provocateurs among the crowds trying to incite violence.
    At this point, people are apparently quitting their jobs and flocking to Ferguson to devote all their time and energy to this.
         Who is paying for this?   I keep on thinking it is all the far leftist groups, probably based on billionaire leftist Soros fortune.  We also have the Obama white house having meetings with the protestors and telling them "to Stay the course"
       The flipside of this is that ammo and gun sales in the area have skyrocketed, the average citizen is stocking up in case of civil unrest.  Many people in other area's are also stocking up, this has the potential of exploding into major civil unrest and major blood spill.



    Actually, they aren’t even being referred to as protests anymore. They are now being called “planned responses.”
    A Tumblr page for something called the “Ferguson National Response Network” has posted a very organized list with graphics for each location (which must have taken a lot of time and effort) detailing these “planned responses” that have been scheduled for a total of 82 cities across the U.S. and one in Canada after the grand jury announces their decision (something which, if it’s as scripted as the rest of this situation has been and continues to be, will be expertly timed with the holidays coming up).
    Organizers are also holding something called “direct action trainings.”

       I don't really know how this will play out, We also have the amnesty speil being pushed by the community organizer in chief, along with the Democrats killing the Keystone pipeline yesterday.  This shows a major powershift in democrat politics.  It showed the winners and losers, the winners were the "greens" and the loser were the labor unions.  It showed who has the power and money in the democratic party.  I wonder how the unions will come back from this.
    When I was a shop Steward at my last employer, I warned the leadership about hitching the union wagon exclusively to one party, rather go with the one that is in the best interest of the membership.  I knew that the greens in the democrats were gaining in power, I had commented that the democrat politicians viewed us as an ATM, they would go mutter platitudes about "worker rights" and we would give them money, then they would go to the environmental groups and really make things happen for them.  Now the unions are being bit hard for their lack of foresight,  they are paying for their lack of vision.

    The Gettysburg Address 150 years later...

    Today was a momentous day in American history, on this day 150 years ago, President Lincoln gave a 2 minute speech at the dedication of the Gettysburg battlefield where a little over 4 months earlier over a 3 day battle, the North was able to defeat the armies of the South.  At the beginning of the battle, this was the highpoint of the Southern Succession movement.  General Lee was hoping this incursion into the North would be successful.  In the past the Armies of northern Virginia has acted in a defensive nature, basically defending Richmond, the capital of the confederacy. 
         This was a strategic movement of the Southern armies, and the 3 day battle was a culmination of the movement.  General Lee was hopeful that this attack would force a defeat of the Union armies under George Meade on northern soil and this action would have the countries of England and France recognize the confederacy and force the United States to accept the confederacy. 
         Picketts Charge is widely recognized as the high-water mark of the Confederates fortunes.
    Picketts Charge at Gettysburg.

    There would be 2 more years of war, and the Confederacy even after Gettysburg still could have prevailed.  President Lincoln was under enormous pressure especially with the mounting casualties from the war and the constant setbacks.  General Lee by this time had attained glorious reputation and his exploits were the stuff of  legends.   Many in the North lamented this and President Lincoln was under severe political pressure from the Copperheads to have a political settlement to the war.  President Lincoln feared that having 2 countries in the geographical area would make both weak and vulnerable to outside interference.  Remember the Monroe Doctrine, back then the countries in Europe were on a race to either colonize or spread their own influence through the world.  Look at the effect on Africa,  We had our own manifest destiny to go from sea to sea and having the French, Germans or English meddling would have caused problems with that.
        
    Following the July 1–3, 1863, Battle of Gettysburg, reburial of Union soldiers from the Gettysburg Battlefield graves began on October 17. The committee for the November 19 Consecration of the National Cemetery at Gettysburg invited President Lincoln: "It is the desire that, after the Oration, you, as Chief Executive of the nation, formally set apart these grounds to their sacred use by a few appropriate remarks." Lincoln's address followed the oration by Edward Everett, who subsequently included a copy of the Gettysburg Address in his 1864 book about the event (Address of the Hon. Edward Everett At the Consecration of the National Cemetery At Gettysburg, 19th November 1863, with the Dedicatory Speech of President Lincoln, and the Other Exercises of the Occasion; Accompanied by An Account of the Origin of the Undertaking and of the Arrangement of the Cemetery Grounds, and by a Map of the Battle-field and a Plan of the Cemetery).
    During the train trip from Washington, D.C., to Gettysburg on November 18, Lincoln remarked to John Hay that he felt weak. On the morning of November 19, Lincoln mentioned to John Nicolay that he was dizzy. In the railroad car the President rode with his secretary, John G. Nicolay, his assistant secretary, John Hay, the three members of his Cabinet who accompanied him, William Seward, John Usher and Montgomery Blair, several foreign officials and others. Hay noted that during the speech Lincoln's face had 'a ghastly color' and that he was 'sad, mournful, almost haggard.' After the speech, when Lincoln boarded the 6:30 pm train for Washington, D.C., he was feverish and weak, with a severe headache. A protracted illness followed, which included a vesicular rash and was diagnosed as a mild case of smallpox. It thus seems highly likely that Lincoln was in the prodromal period of smallpox when he delivered the Gettysburg address:  The following speech was short and is considered one of the best  political speeches in history.  Compare the brevity of Lincoln's speeches to the pontification of the speeches given in this day and age.

    Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.


    Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.


    But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us-that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion-that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain-that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.


         
        
         This is a poster I made back in the 8th grade.  I had spent a lot of time in "art" class, learning calligraphy and working on this poster.  I was very glad that my mom had saved this poster along with some of the other stuff from my childhood.  it is set up in my "man-cave" along with my military souvenirs and other stuff and assorted SWAG from work.

    Monday Music "Ruby" by Kenny Rogers

    Before I start on my Monday Music, I completed my NRA instructor course for Rifle and Shotgun, the course was over 3 days, from Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  This was necessary for me to instruct scouts higher then cub scouts.  I have been running BB ranges for the cub scouts for 6 years, my son is a Boy Scout now and I needed to step up to the higher level.  They are offering a pistol course in early December down in Florida.  I will try to take that course...but no guarantees..depends on schedule.  You know that Christmas is coming and the dance card is filling up fast.
         I decided to go back in to the murky past for this song.  I wanted to do it earlier, but was unable to find any material on it.  But I found some this time.  This song my Dad used to play all the time, and I would hear it on his "Reel to Reel" tape player.
    His was either a "Sony" or a "Sanyo".  I recall him telling me that he picked it up at the PX in Saigon.  The sound quality was really good, Nothing from digital media, but there is something about an old fashioned Reel to Reel.    He played this song and others a lot, I inherited some of my music taste from my Dad.  This song struck a chord with the Vietnam War generation, and the later Veterans who have heard this song.  The words can change a bit, but the emotions are the same.
          "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town" is a song written by Mel Tillis about a paralyzed veteran of a "crazy Asian war" (given the time of its release, widely assumed but never explicitly stated to be the Vietnam War) who lies helplessly in bed as his wife "paints [herself] up" to go out for the evening without him; he believes she is going in search of a lover, and as he hears the door slam behind her, he pleads for her to reconsider. The song was made famous by Kenny Rogers and the First Edition in 1969. "Ruby" was originally recorded in 1967 by Johnny Darrell, who scored a number nine country hit with it that year.
       
    In 1969, after Kenny Rogers and the First Edition's success with the hits "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)" and "But You Know I Love You", Rogers wanted to take his group more into a country music direction. They recorded their version of the song (with Rogers singing the lead) in one take. The record was a major hit for them. It made #1 in the UK on the New Musical Express (#2 on the BBC chart) staying in the top twenty for 15 weeks and selling over a million copies by the end of 1970. In the United States it reached number six on the Hot 100 and number thirty-nine on the country chart and also sold more than 1 million copies by 1979. Worldwide, the single sold more than 7 million copies.
    In 1977, now a solo act following the First Edition's split in early-1976, Rogers made re-recordings of this and a number of other First Edition hits for his 1977 greatest hits package Ten Years Of Gold (later issued in the British Isles as The Kenny Rogers Singles Album), which topped the US country charts and was just as successful in the United Kingdom.
         An answer song to "Ruby," entitled "Billy, I've Got To Go To Town," was released in 1969 by Geraldine Stevens who had previously recorded successfully under the name Dodie Stevens. Sung to the same melody with an arrangement quite similar to the First Edition version, "Billy" peaked at #117 pop, #57 country. In Stevens' song, Ruby affirms her love for her disabled husband ("Billy" in her song; in "Ruby," he is not named) and pleads in turn for her man to have faith in her fidelity and her commitment to him, even in his crippled condition

         A music video consisting solely of a camera panning back and forth in a bedroom was shown at the end of a Huntley-Brinkley Report during 1969. Chet Huntley set up the video by linking it to the controversial Vietnam War and the sacrifices by U.S. servicemen and their families. Chet Huntley and David Brinkley paused after the video and then signed off in their usual fashion.   I was unable to locate the video despite searching "Youtube" and other web sites.
