Does trust make you hate or just plain stupid? Part 1

Y'all probably want to know where I get these images from? It's from the same infamous site I chose not to name because I don't get a check from them and they should pay people for the amount of time they spend there. That's another discussion. Is there's something wrong with this photo? I don't believe so. it's pretty accurate "according" to today's social climate. But what scares me is the amount of criminality and destruction it took for that picture to be true. Yes, I said it. If the average person took the time to research most of these religions today, I guarantee they would be outlawed. It's so bad that people are defensive of their religions, and others promote false propaganda stories misleading others to think differently. Why? It's all about greed. That's right, GREED. Ok, if you want to get racial we can. It's those who have not...

The Pied Piper Of Woodstock


Download on iBooks
  The author of this book has written his memories to the best of his recollection from birth until the present-including the events relating to Woodstock 1969 A Review The Pied Piper of Woodstock BY PATRICK WITT GUEST COLUMNIST Friday, October 30, 2009 Most people have never heard of Artie Kornfeld. But without a doubt, they’ve experienced the impact he’s had on music in one way or another. They’ve heard songs that he wrote played on the radio, listened to bands that he’s produced or promoted, and certainly know of his most memorable creation — Woodstock. Artie Kornfeld’s new book, “The Pied Piper of Woodstock”, is a detailed account of how he created the greatest concert of all time. But rather than a mere recollection of events, Kornfeld delves deeper into the circumstances that led to Woodstock’s conception — both in his own life and in America during the 1960s. From his...

Cutting taxes as a way to the poorhouse: A commentary

  Cutting taxes as a way to the poorhouse.  A commentary for my fellow Americans No question, government agencies can blow through money. The recent farce at the GSA gives new meaning to the term government waste. And I am surely not the only American who wonders what Secret Service agents’ cavorting with prostitutes has cost taxpayers. Then there are the super-expensive items, those ashtrays, hammers, and toilet seats—mostly purchased by the military—with obscene price tags. Generally they have been defended as meeting special requirements, such as the toilet seat not disintegrating when suffering a direct hit from a bomb. It always seemed to me that the toilet seat disintegrating would be the least of any sailor using the head at such a moment. However, who am I to judge? And, of course, there are the many instances of inter-departmental duplication. While there may be a reason that salmon are considered...

Don’t Worry Your Pretty Little Head (satire)

There has been a lot of discussion about a right wing war on women. I don’t believe it, not for an instant. I do not believe that the conservatives of America are waging war on their wives, their daughters, their mothers. Quite the contrary! I am sure they are dedicated to the women in their lives, even fiercely dedicated to protecting their women. And the women of America need protection. Have no doubt about that. There are so many problems to be faced, challenges to be overcome, and concerns to be addressed. For one thing, more women than ever are facing life without a man. More women than ever are single parents with children who depend on them. More than ever women are faced with earning a living and providing not only for their own frivolous needs but for the sustenance of their children, for paying the rent, and, yes, paying...

They call it self defense

  For over a month I have been following and thinking about the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.  Why? Because there is something iconic in this story, something that speaks to the very heart of our society and how we as a nation think.   The facts:   A young man, a teenager, walked to the store and bought himself an iced tea and a package of candy. On the way back to his grandmother’s home, he called his girlfriend. It was raining, and he had the hood of his sweatshirt up. There is no way to know if he would have had that hood up had there not been rain.   Another young man, not very much older than the first, was driving around, saw the first man, decided he looked suspicious, called the police, and continued to pursue the first youth. There was a scuffle or confrontation of some...
