Joe’s Comment – The first day of Autumn has come and gone. The weather, though not fantastic, is tolerable. Work on the many projects on the go continues. But that feeling of being backed into a weather corner is tangible and unavoidable. Time to plan for a great panic season!
The Best (and all the rest)
Joe and I love music of all types.
The REAL musicians and music critics have their criteria for judging musical ability.
For instance, Rolling Stone magazine’s David Fricke top 100 list of guitarists places Jimi Hendrix at number 1:
Joe says no way. Not our choice.
The others in the top 10 don’t make it for us either, although they are legendary guitarists.
One of the great attractions of Pink Floyd performances is the lyric guitar of David Gillmore.
Paraphrasing Mr. Gillmore’s words (or maybe not), the guitar as instrument must augment the lyric and compliment the music to create a whole greater than its parts. A sterling example is Comfortably Numb:
another is On The Turning Away:
The guitar takes flight, and with its soaring notes writes an emotional poem which moves the soul.
Or as Joe says, damn, that’s good guitaring.
More Best (to Hell with the rest)
Joe and I agree with Benjamin Netanyahu – the United Nations began as a moral force; it has become a moral farce.
Justin Hairdoo’s address to the 71st UN General Assembly is unimaginative, highbrow yet unintelligent.
Obambi’s address to the UN was laughable. This clown really believes he has stopped the ocean rising.
The only speech Joe and I heard worthy of the time is the main man in the Middling East.
Once again Joe Dan manages to entertain mightily while making his political points known. A must watch every release:
Rumors of Illness
Mrs. Bill is not well.
Or, is it Mrs. Bill? Think doppelganger…..
One of them is very ill……….
Joe and I smell something awful. This is frightening. Of course, the media can spin mud into silk –
The Clinton Lie Ratchet
While we are on a Hildebeast rant, leave us listen to the sage, documented, rational argument from Bill Whittle which identifies the parsing activity Bill’s wife and company use to let down the lie gently.
Anyone who votes for this dangerously deranged dastard does not meet the voter requirement set down by the Founding Fathers – “a virtuous and informed” populous. Here’s Bill:
Tomi (Destroyer) Lahren
Joe and I love outspoken women.
Simply love them.
Tomi Lahren rips that half-wit third string quarterback millionaire Colin (the Sitter) Kaepernick a new orifice. A perfect attack platform – in the hierarchy of “oppressed minorities” who trumps whom? I’m going with the bright young woman with a sharp mind:
Who Is Killing Whom?
Joe and I are appalled with the murder statistics in the U.S. We have posted data in the past that supports the idea that without black and Latino murder statistics, the U.S.A. is on par with Sweden. Something to contemplate.
Love That Duterte
Rodrigo Duterte is the President of the Philippines. He is on a pogrom to eradicate illicit drugs, drug users, and drug dealers in his country. The U.S. made overtures that they might have an opinion on the matter. Same the United Nations.
How did Rodrigo respond?
He called Obambi a “son of a whore”.
He suggested his country will no longer be part of the U.N.
He called the U.S. ambassador to the Philippines gay.
He made fun of John Kerry giving them $33 million USD after being insulted, and suggested they should insult them more!
A great leader….?
POLITICS, POLITICIANS, WACKJOBBERY, HUMOROUS, STUPID
PHILOSOPHY, PHILOSOPHERS, SMART THINKING
GUNS, GUNNERS, GUNNERY
Joe and I admire Ben Shapiro.
We don’t always agree with his conclusions, but there is no better “logic engine” in the public sphere.
The following lecture at Yale University on September 21, 2016 demonstrates his command of language and logic.
On the podium, talking 500 words a minute, the one and only Ben Shapiro (wunderkind extraordinaire):
WEATHER (OR NOT)
This week in Vernon has been a continuation of blah weather – clouds, rain, some wind.
Cold enough to make the furnace come on in the wee early hours.
Top that off with the “official” start of Autumn.
The advent calendar for Spring has about 208 days on it.
That’s a lot of chocolate…..
