I Am a Rock – Simon & Garfunkel

Filed under: Music and Videos, Song, Songs and Music — Scottie @ 05:35

 

“I Am A Rock”

A winter’s day
In a deep and dark December
I am alone
Gazing from my window
To the streets below
On a freshly fallen, silent shroud of snow
I am a rock
I am an island

I’ve built walls
A fortress, steep and mighty
That none may penetrate
I have no need of friendship
Friendship causes pain.
It’s laughter and it’s loving I disdain.
I am a rock
I am an island

Don’t talk of love
Well, I’ve heard the words before
It’s sleeping in my memory
And I won’t disturb the slumber
Of feelings that have died
If I never loved, I never would have cried
I am a rock
I am an island

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me
I am shielded in my armor
Hiding in my room
Safe within my womb
I touch no one and no one touches me
I am a rock
I am an island

And a rock feels no pain
And an island never cries

It outraged everyone but tRump when a foreign power interfered in our elections.   Yet here is state TV echoing the fascist corrupt government of the US in trying to meddle and pick another countries leaders.   WTF!

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/03/fox-host-calls-on-cia-to-overthrow-maduro-video/

“Earlier this week John Bolton on this program said all options on the table when it comes to getting [Nicolás] Maduro out. Should we use the CIA? I realize I’m going back to the late 1950s or something. But I mean why not? Why not? The guy is a corrupt socialist dictator. He’s killing his own people in the street. Why can’t we have the CIA have a quiet word with a couple of generals, get him out the country, why not?” – Fox News host Stuart Varney.

Men at Work – Land Down Under

Filed under: Music and Videos, News, Song, Songs and Music — Scottie @ 05:50

 

“Down Under”

Travelling in a fried-out Kombi
On a hippie trail, head full of zombie
I met a strange lady, she made me nervous
She took me in and gave me breakfast
And she said:

“Do you come from a land down under
Where women glow and men plunder
Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder
You better run, you better take cover.”

Buying bread from a man in Brussels
He was six foot four and full of muscle
I said, “Do you speak-a my language?”
He just smiled and gave me a Vegemite sandwich
And he said:

“I come from a land down under
Where beer does flow and men chunder
Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder
You better run, you better take cover.” (yeah)

Lying in a den in Bombay
With a slack jaw, and not much to say
I said to the man, “Are you trying to tempt me?
Because I come from the land of plenty.”
And he said:

“Oh! Do you come from a land down under (oh yeah yeah)
Where women glow and men plunder
Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder
You better run, you better take cover.”

Republicans are trying to make it illegal for schools to teach about trans issues

https://www.queerty.com/republicans-trying-make-illegal-schools-teach-trans-issues-20190213

 

Zack Ford of the progressive political site Think Progress has called HB 1108, “the first ‘no promo trans’ bill to actually have traction in the country,” comparing it to “no promo homo” laws currently active in seven U.S. states which forbid teachers from discussing any LGBTQ issues — including LGBTQ politics, queer history, or sexual health — in a positive light.

One of the bill’s supporters, Republican Representative Fred Deutsch, said, “We protect our children that we’re sending to public schools from the influences of other children that are suffering with different disorders.”

He continued, “I don’t want my grandchildren going to kindergarten and being confused if they’re a boy or a girl. Treat our children with respect, all of them, but let’s not subject them to notions of fancy.”

Deutsch sponsored a failed 2016 bill to prevent trans kids from using the bathroom matching their gender identity.

Ford points out that trans children identify themselves at an early age, and many age-appropriate children’s books discuss the issue. HB 1108 would effectively ban these books and disallow faculty from addressing the trans child’s medical and psychological needs.

The bill’s sponsor, Republican Representative Tom Pischke, has “a 100-percent rating from Family Heritage Alliance Action, South Dakota’s anti-LGBTQ political advocacy group,” Ford writes.

If You’re Gonna Play In Texas

Filed under: Music and Videos, Song, Songs and Music — Scottie @ 05:59

 

“If You’re Gonna Play In Texas (You Gotta Have A Fiddle In The Band)”

If you’re gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot but not for “Louisiana Man”
So rosin up that bow for “Faded Love” and let’s all dance
If you’re gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band

I remember down in Houston we were puttin’ on a show
When a cowboy in the back stood up and yelled, “Cotton-Eyed Joe”!
He said, “We love what you’re doin’, boys don’t get us wrong
There’s just somethin’ missin’ in your song”

If you’re gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot but not for “Louisiana Man”
So rosin up that bow for “Faded Love” and let’s all dance
If you’re gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band

So we dusted off our boots and put our cowboy hats on straight
Them Texans raised the roof when Jeff opened up his case
You say y’all all wanna two-step
You say ya wanna doe-si-doe
Well, here’s your fiddlin’ song before we go

If you’re gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot but not for “Louisiana Man”
So rosin up that bow for “Faded Love” and let’s all dance
If you’re gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band

If you’re gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot but not for “Louisiana Man”
So rosin up that bow for “Faded Love” and let’s all dance
If you’re gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band

 

Mel McDaniel – Louisiana Saturday Night

Filed under: Music and Videos, News, Song, Songs and Music — Scottie @ 05:55

 

“Louisiana Saturday Night”

Well, you get down the fiddle and you get down the bow
Kick off your shoes and you throw ’em on the floor
Dance in the kitchen till the mornin’ light
Louisiana Saturday night

A-waiting in the front yard sitting on a log
A single shot rifle and a one eyed dog
Yonder come my kinfolk, in the moonlight
Louisiana Saturday night

Well, you get down the fiddle and you get down the bow
Kick off your shoes and you throw ’em on the floor
Dance in the kitchen till the mornin’ light
Louisiana Saturday night

My brother Bill and my other brother Jack
Belly full of beer and a possum in a sack
Fifteen kids in the front porch light
Louisana Saturday night

When your kinfolk leave and the kids get fed
Me and my woman gonna slip off to bed
Have a little fun when we turn out the lights
Louisiana Saturday night

Well, you get down the fiddle and you get down the bow
Kick off your shoes and you throw ’em on the floor
Dance in the kitchen till the mornin’ light
Louisiana Saturday night

Yeah, you get down the fiddle and you get down the bow
Kick off your shoes and you throw ’em on the floor
Dance in the kitchen till the mornin’ light
Louisiana Saturday night

Get down the fiddle and you get down the bow
Kick off your shoes and you throw ’em on the floor
Dance in the kitchen till the mornin’ light
Louisiana Saturday night
