Well then, things seem to be cast in concrete after all…DEMAND UPGRADE

Hello Gentle Readers:

I’ve been (rather deliberately) out of touch with the MSM and this wonderful place in web-space for some time now. It nice to be back.

After a bit of catching up over the last couple of weeks it seems that the inability of Big Brother to “turn over a new leaf” is (seemingly so) cast in concrete.

Pity. I’ve watched. I’ve waited. Even though I did not vote for the man, I hoped, like much of the country I hoped. Bah!

With the tacit approval of continued torture, the “realignment” of which alphabet soup agency actually does the torture (welcome the new “elite” unit?.)

The continued draining of our economy to fight what are arguably unconstitutional wars (Not just the war on terrorism, but the mostly forgotten and useless war on drugs, and several others initiatives that could just go on and on…)

The hopeless failure of the alledged last best hope for the uninsured due to the brazen back room selling of the American tax payer to the highest bidder (namely the special interest buck) to the distraction of talks here, talks there…rude blatherings by our Sec. State…to publically funded bailouts of industrial dinosaurs that have the nerve to pop out such wonders of smoke and mirrors as the recent “cash for clunkers” thing…the list goes on and on…and so does my belief in the idea that it can be fixed.

Has anyone read Ted Nugent’s “Ted, White, and Blue”? My local library recent accuired a copy. Rather interesting reading that.

The thrust of the book is that we need to get back to Constitutional basics and “DEMAND UPGRADE” Not just politically. We need to do this in everything that we do. How we live our lives is largly reflected in the current political “business as usual”

The premise that need to stop accepting the slurry of B.S. that they’re shovelling out of D.C., and DEMAND UPGRADE is at once very simple and very powerful.

He may never actually get into office, but the man seemingly knows what he’s talking about. This no holds barred style of grabbing life by the reality, rather than by the remote control is something that I’d recommend for this nation politically, and at least for myself and my loved ones, is somthing that I am going to incorporate into my day to day…I would encourage any and all that care to try this to start by contacting all teir levels of government and demanding upgrade. Thanks for reading.

    The hardest working man in rock ‘n roll is back with a political message. No wonder he can only find work at the county fair.

    Seriously was talking with a buddy of mine about “the Nuge” last Thursday and we wondered why he doesn’t tour because we’d go see him in a heartbeat. Now I know why…BLACKLISTED!

    Congress is elected to represent, not to direct, the people.

    Sorry but you are functioning on a hunch while I happen to have firsthand information.
    I did a series of commercials for a series of music festivals and the promoters were literally begging Ted to come do some gigs at these South Texas venues.
    Ted’s management refused to speak on the issue except to say that the Nuge was booked four years in advance.

    We knew better, but there it is, and this AFTER his management had already sent footage and permission to use said footage in our ad spots.

    What better way to screw a man than with his own management team?

    Not wise to risk actual lists in the information age where it would end up on wikileaks or get tweeted.

    Ask the Dixie Chicks if they were blacklisted by Clear Channel. Or the infamous Hollywood blacklist started in 1947. These things do happen.

    For starters, not all of us are Gentiles.

    You said:

    “With the tacit approval of continued torture, the “realignment” of which alphabet soup agency actually does the torture (welcome the new “elite” unit?.)”

    That is bullcrap. Plain unadorned bullcrap. The President has strongly condemned torture and has directed that it not be used. Interrogations must follow the Army protocols, which specifically forbid use of torture.

    And Ted Nugent is in my opinion a right wing kook of the first order. Far off to the right, actually. Perhaps there’s a sewer commissioner job for him someplace, but other than that….

    You are right, not all of the readership here are Gentiles…thank you for pointing that out. The line was supposed to read: “Gentle Reader”. Editing has been done to correct the error. On a personal note, I would like to apologize to any/all that felt slandered by my typo.

    As to the rest, I love the first Amendment. It makes sure that you can have the right to express your opinion. Thank you for yours. I don’t happen to agree with you, but thank you for the input none the less.

    If I told you that was chocolate in the toilet would you run and eat it?

    The truest measure of a man is not what he says but what he does.

    Aww – not a problem unless you’re looking for one. I thought it was supposed to be genteel… southern style. Guess we need an upgrade all around.

    My gentility is mostly composed of my upbringing, which furthers my ability to discern shinola in regards to lack of comparative argumentation with a point.

    English teachers have a right to defend the Kings English as do we all, but lately here, it is beginning to seem that flaming assholes descend upon errors of diction and typographical error without thought or question of authors intent seeking only to fog up the fog of their ego.

    Case in point, we act, we interact, we debate,
    sans the vitriol. Amen, Allons…..
