My desert island musical selection

Desert Island

One important thing all human beings should think about is what music would they want to have with them if they were stranded on a musical island (because you just never know, right?)
If I had to pick one CD, I might go with Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon, Led Zeppelin IV, U2 – Joshua Tree, Radio Head- OK Computer, Pearl Jam -Ten, Nirvana – Never Mind, The Eagles – Greatest Hits or The Who – Who’s Next.

In a perfect world , I would have a mixed CD to accompany me during the lonely days and nights on the deserted island that I may or may nor inhabit one day. If that was the case, here are the tunes that would be on that CD.

  • Pink Floyd – Comfortably Numb
  • Pink Floyd – Time
  • Radiohead – Creep
  • Radiohead – Paranoid Android
  • Pearl Jam – Black
  • Pearl Jam – Even Flow
  • Alice in Chains – Rooster
  • Alice in Chains – Again
  • Audioslave – Like a Stone
  • Rage against the machine – Killing in the name
  • Kings of Leon – Arizona
  • The Who – Won’t get fooled again
  • The Who – Pinball Wizard
  • Led Zeppelin – Kashmir
  • Led Zeppelin – Hey Hey What Can I do
  • Foo Fighters – Everlong
  • REM – Losing My Religion
  • The Eagles – Hotel California
  • Fleetwood Mac – Rhiannon
  • Bush – Everything Zen
  • Finger 11 – Paralyzed

I hope I don’t actually ever get stuck on a desert Island, but if I do I want to have some great music to accompany me!

I’m with her, because I am certainly NOT with him!

Hillary Clinton for President

I am probably never going to be the biggest Hilary Clinton supporter. I tend to vote Democrat, but she has never been my favorite. I think she did a good job as Secretary of State and was admirable as First Lady, but my choice of the Democratic nominee would be stronger towards Joe Biden if he decided to run or Bernie (Feel the Bern) Sanders.

It’s not that I don’t trust Hillary. Email scandal aside, I think she is trustworthy, intelligent, experienced and she would be good with diplomacy and for the most part, make good decisions as POTUS.

Her opponent, Donald J. Trump, on the other hand, would be a disaster as President. He is brash, insulting to women, minorities, people with disabilities and when it comes to foreign affairs he is just plain ignorant. He has no plan if he becomes President other than that he will “Make America Great Again”. No he won’t! America is already great. There is no need to make America great again. He will make America terrible and will incite violence, promote racism, make poor decisions, will piss off all of the leaders of other countries, probably start World War III and might end civilization as we know it.

Back in 1990 after I graduated from college I went to Atlantic City New Jersey and stopped in Trump casino. it was pretty sleazy and has since closed. I also stopped at Trump tower in 2001 on a trip to New York City. It was a nice building, but kind of pompous just like the person the building was named after.

Trump does real estate and fires people on reality shows. He should stick to real estate and television and stay in New York City where he belongs. Washington D.C will be Hillary’s new place of residence once November 2016 rolls around.

HB2 sucks and it is stupid

We are Not This

“Stupid is as stupid does”- Forrest Gump

Stupid is as stupid does.This is how I feel about N.C Governor McCrory and the N.C legislature putting HB2 (House Bill 2) on the books in March 2016. Since the bill was signed into law, my birth state of North Carolina and residence for the past twenty plus years has become a laughing stock for the rest of the Nation due to the silly law that states among other things that a transgender person must use the bathroom according to their birth certificate, not according to how they identify.

The bill is stupid, unnecessary and makes the state of North Carolina a laughing stock for the rest of the United States.

Here are the issues I have with the HB2 law (in no particular order). (more…)

Happy Birthday America!

United States Flag

Today is the 4th of July and many Americans will be celebrating with food, beer, wine, more food,music,swimming, fireworks and just having a great time with friends and family. Today is also a day we pause to reflect and take some time to reflect on what it means to be an American. America stands for freedom, prosperity, a government built by the people and for the people. Hard working people who live in a country knowing that they are free to pursue their dreams. We should not simply take all of these luxuries and freedoms for granted. Celebrate the 4th, but also understand the symbolism of the Holiday.

We hold these truths to be sacred & undeniable; that all men are created equal & independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent & inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, & liberty, & the pursuit of happiness; – Thomas Jefferson
