Neil Diamond

Neil Diamond was one of the greatest musical acts of the last half of the 20th century and still around today. Given the talent and great music created during that time, that says a lot. The awards for him keep adding up. Known for signature songs that Americans love. A song writer that made other bands famous recording his songs.

I chose the following from one of his earlier (6th studio release) albums, "Tap Root Manuscript." Diamond's expression of an African sound. It's called, "The African Trilogy." Released in 1970. This is the whole "B" side of that album. The "A" side had his hits like "Free Life" and "Cold Water Morning", and "Cracklin' Rosie."

This would be considered outside of the popular songs Diamond was famous for, but I think it's an example of his musical genius. This man has been a big hit for over 50 years. Check out his music!

The Desperate Are The Deplorable

The mourning after the election the liberals shut down their blogs and comment sections. My troll (Dervish Sanders) posted he would quit blogging. It was the biggest example of political crybabies ever in American politics.
A few days later the liberal blogs were up and posting again, but they would not post comments, I guess because they could not handle the, "I told you so!" My troll Dervish Sanders did not quit blogging (no surprise) just another lie from the troll. Instead Dervish went on a rampage of vile comments and more death threats to me. I put an end to my troll Dervish Sanders and his almost 1,000 comments and multiple death threats. Anyone who wants to comment on this blog must send their comments by email and I will post them. The troll Dervish Sanders was afraid to expose his email and I haven't heard from him since. I knew he would be to chicken to give his email.
The cries of Trump is Hitler, which started even before the Republican primaries started, became not only worse after the election, but a talking point for the party that lost the election (Democrats). Just another example of the hate coming out of the Clinton campaign. It's an insult of the highest magnitude to Holocaust victims and survivors everywhere to compare Trump to Hitler, but these liberals know no bounds.
The Democrats (Clinton) couldn't even get their vote out, and they wonder why. Their hate was obvious. Stabbing Bernie in the back after he had been nothing but a gentleman during the primaries showed Americans what they thought of Hillary, was correct.
The nastiness by her supporters was spread all over the country, especially on the blogs. My personal example of being attacked was just another out of 100's of thousands.
Hillary ran on the Obama agenda, not her own, even though all the polls were saying Americans wanted a change.You have got to be bad if you can't even beat a bigot like Trump.
Then the street protests, and of course the violence. People got shot!
Then the attack on the Electoral College provision of the Constitution. I wonder why the Democrats didn't do something about that after the 2000 election? Anyways, it was not only the trait of a crybaby, but truly stating they would not abide by the Constitutional process. An anti-American stance. if there ever was one.
Now they have a recount in Wisconsin and hope to have recounts in at least two other States. They have raised 5-1/2 million dollars to a needed 7 million dollars to have these recounts done. Their money would be better spent on trying to stop Trumps legislative moves, or pay Electoral College voters to change their vote. The recounts will not change a thing and there was no rigged election. Democrats lost the election by their bumbling and hate filled behavior, not to mention their very poor candidate.
The Democrats have a righteous complaint about the type of people Trump is appointing, but this is no surprise, especially to the millions who voted to make Trump president. When Democrats decide to quit crying and denouncing the Constitution of the United States, and fight, then Americans might listen. Nobody likes a crybaby, especially mean spirited crybabies that refuse to accept the law of the land. The law we have lived by since 1789. These Democratic desperate are the deplorable.
Trump has no mandate, as the Trump campaign is saying. The simple fact that he lost the majority vote proves that, but Republicans swept the election all over the country. Governors, Mayors, Congress positions Senate positions, State legislators, etc., was a huge Republican election win.
So far Trump has shown us the worst of his decision making abilities. Jeff Sessions for Attorney General is an example. Dr. Ben Carson for Housing and Urban development? Dr. Carson said himself last week he does not have the ability to head up any federal department, which is quite obvious.
Today Trump said the almost 2 million votes Clinton is leading by, those votes are all cast by illegal voters. To have such an obvious liar as president, is dangerous. To have such an obvious bigot as president, is dangerous.
Democratic hate, nastiness, and bumbling gave us president Trump. That hate will only build with Trump as president for four years, or possibly eight years as recent history shows a typical presidential term. The politics of hate started by the Republicans will only get worse bolstered by the hate filled Democrats.
The people will suffer starting in a few months. The first 100 days of a Trump administration is set to end help for those who need help the most in our country.
The founding documents write about the people, not corporations. The words company, corporation, business, capitalists, or capitalism are not mentioned in those documents, which are our guide on making decisions for our legislators.
So on with your strategy of hate Democrats, I won't be joining that garbage effort.

"Stardust" was one of the favorite songs of the 20th century. Composed in 1927 by Hoagy Carmichael with lyrics added in 1929 by Mitchell Parish. Just about every musician has recorded this song. It also became popular as an instrumental tune, notably by many sax players, early big bands, and jazz bands.

This is the great composer Hoagy Carmichael playing his song "Stardust" on the piano and his vocal version of Mitchell Parish's words. Hoagy originally called the song "Star Dust."

This next version is perhaps the most famous version of "Stardust." Sung by the great Nat King Cole.

Red Neck Nation Votes

Similar to Truman's win, all the polls and news outlets had Clinton winning right up to and including election day. They all got it wrong.
Trump won the Electoral College, but lost the popular vote. It's a stipulation of the Constitution that the Electoral College elects the president, not the popular vote. We have lived with that legal reality for over 240 years. Yet, the crybaby liberals refuse to accept Trump as the legal and fair winner. That's funny given the liberals were screaming about Trump possibly not accepting Clinton as the fair winner, if she won. So the liberals are now acting like Trump, funny.
There is a strategy by liberals to change the Electoral College vote before the Electoral College meets and votes on December 19th. The liberals need to change the vote of 37 Electoral College voters to have Clinton declared president. Good luck with that.
The mathematical possibility that the winner of the most votes would lose the Electoral College has always existed, but it has only happened a few times in the history of our country. The Democrats expressed sour grapes after the 2000 election, but never moved to amend the Constitution and eliminate the Electoral College. Now many (including the ex AG Eric Holder) are calling for amending the Constitution and eliminating the Electoral College. The problem of course, is gerrymandering, which the Democrats could change easier than amending the Constitution, which takes the approval of 2/3's of the States, both the Senate and the House, and of course the presidents signature. The cries of an illegitimate election are false and just a reaction by sore losers.
The difference between a Trump administration and an Obama administration could not be more diametrically opposed. The personal styles and presentation of Obama compared to Trump are as different as night and day. Obama is an intellectual with class and probably the best oratory skills of any president including Kennedy. Trump is nothing more than a carnival barker with the oratory of a bar fly drunk and the morals of a 19th century bigot.
So how could half of our 21st century people vote for such 19th century vulgarity and bigotry? We have to admit that over the last 50 years our oral and visual utterances have become more vulgar, for a mixture of reasons, including court decisions of free speech and social norms. As we allow the coarsening of our speech and visuals, we forgot that responsibility has to be part of our Constitutional rights. It's not enough to simply accept that people can say, show, and do whatever they want without a counter voice of responsible speech and images. I'm not talking about legal constraints, but people's acceptance of what is publicly acceptable. I'm not talking about legal censorship, but personal censorship, especially when it comes to our children. To me, the most biting political ad I saw was Clinton's ad showing children watching Trump on TV uttering his vulgar oratory. If Trump had been in a school talking to children, he would have been asked to leave. Yet, it's OK to allow that kind of oral vulgarity to enter our living rooms, because he is on TV? We created this monster through our acceptance of past political and social deterioration of oral and visual vulgarity. We reject our authorities using censorship, so here we are.      
The bigotry and racism is something we have tried to suppress with some success, but humans are flawed. Bigotry and racism are learned traits, and it appears many of our parents are teaching traits we publicly claim to abhor. This proves to me that legislation to curb bigotry and racism is needed and we need more. There is a difference between personal and public behavior. I wish the rejection of people would be enough to suppress such vile words, or behavior, but we know it's not. The hypocrites that call themselves liberals have to take some responsibility for the excessive vulgarity in society, that this election has proven to be acceptable.
These hypocritical liberals are ridiculous. Their hate knows no bounds. Then after Trump was declared the winner,  they shut down their blog, they shut down their comment sections, they said publicly the election was a fraud, they cried publicly that this election was a devastation to all good Americans, they claimed "Clinton won the popular vote" which is not the Constitutional determination of the winner of a presidential election.
I chastised Republicans for being sore losers. for obstructing everything Obama proposed even though some of those proposals were Republican ideas. For putting party before country. For claiming Obama was an illegitimate president because he was not a legal American. A racist stance if ever there was one. For wishing our new black president ill and treating him without respect. I can do no different for these ugly, mean spirited Liberals and their evil words for our new president elect. Oppose Trump, as you must! But he is no Hitler! He is a reflection of ourselves, believe that, or not. He IS going to be our president, like that, or not. He already stated that he will not seek to eliminate Obama care, but will tweak it. Gee, that's exactly what Clinton promised, and the liberals loved it.
The next 4 years should be fun and strange. And OMG imagine 8 years of Trump. That's a distinct possibility given the history of our presidential terms. So cry all you want liberals! Your hate helped make Trump president, now live with it!

The Party's Over

                                The great Nat King Cole singing "The Party's Over"

Composed by Jule Styne with lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. It was introduced in the 1956 musical comedy Bells Are Ringing by Judy Holliday.

Fitting sentiments for tonight's election. Trump wins!

Did You Vote Today?

I did not! But don't tell me I don't have a right to complain.
As long as I pay taxes, I have a right to complain. As long as I am a citizen, I will complain. As long as crooked politicians are destroying our government, I will complain. As long as extremists cry Hitler, I will call that demagoguery. I refuse to be forced to conform to simply vote when my choices are so unacceptable. Voting to continue corrupt politics by voting for corrupt politicians is a danger in itself and I refuse to engage because I might fear some idiot calling me unpatriotic. I was called a traitor for not supporting the Iraq invasion. I complained about liberals when they called Bush II, Hitler.
I won't worship leaders who created a slave nation. I won't revere leaders who stole from then killed the Native Americans. Don't tell me Trump is the worst thing to happen in American politics. FDR the great liberal imprisoned Americans just because their heritage was Japanese. FDR wanted 13 Supreme Court Justices, because the 9 we had thought his laws were unconstitutional. Take your false principles and vote for whichever crook you THINK will solve all your problems. President Clinton will give us all plenty to complain about, except for the Kool-Aid drinking liberals who will see her election as the salvation of America. Hogwash!

Nature and Space Photographs

My resident troll Dervish Sanders who sends me death threats and 100's of vulgar emails wonders where are my nature and space photographs, which would prove I am someone I am not. That's funny given nature and space photographs are the most popular images posted on blogs worldwide. His delusions are deep and famous. He is known as a liar and someone who writes multiple blogs about hate for several individuals.The lengths he goes to show an unhealthy obsession and deep mental problem. But here are my nature and space pictures, so Dervish can claim I am someone I am not. For extra emphasis I copied these pictures from the blog of the person Dervish falsely claims I am. But then Dervish said that guy is dead. It's hard to keep up with his delusions/lies, but I humor him. It's dangerous to his mental health when we prove his delusions to be lies.

John Denver

Listen to an expert sing songs he wrote, with the passion of a true artist. John Denver, singing his famous hit "Rocky Mountain High" (above). A true American troubadour. I'm awed by his talent, as he sings to me. He wrote big hits, for himself and other musicians. Another of his big hits, "Calypso" (below). Check out his great music.

Frank Sinatra

                                     The greatest troubadour of the 20th century.

This is Frank's version of the old standard "The Way You look Tonight." A song written by Jerome Kern with lyrics by Dorothy Fields, in 1936. It won the Oscar for Best Original Song that year. Fred Astaire performed the song in the movie "Swing Time."
This is typical Frank Sinatra. His phrasing, voice, and style. He started as a band singer and became the biggest solo singing performer of the 20th century. He recorded thousands of songs, most of which are available for free on the net. Check out his music and see why he was the best.
