So High, So Low, So Long

Hey...

Looks like ol' Ike Turner iced himself on the cocaine after all...



Now who'd have thunk that mean old maestro at 76 years young & well hung was still dabbling in the devil's dandruff...

Bad Boy til the end...

nothing new there...

so here's something sorta new:

Gorillaz feat Ike Turner - Every Planet We Reach Is Dead

and something old school:

Ike Turner - Twistin' The Strings


I LIKE IKE: There's more rare Ike Turner tracks at my tribute I posted last month here

-----------------------------

Not only did I just have to shield my eyes from that news, but another all too real & disturbing tale Greg Palast is spinning today at his website...

Including an excerpt from Palast's latest audiobook & Ed Asner reading this prescient excerpt from the script of Paddy Chayefsky's 1970's masterpiece Network:

“The Arabs have taken billions of dollars out of this country, and now they must put it back. … It is ebb and flow, tidal gravity…. There are no nations, there are no peoples. There is only one vast and immense, interwoven, multi-national dominion of petro-dollars. … There is no America. There is no ‘democracy.’ The world is a business, one vast and ecumenical holding company, for whom all men will work.”


Ed Asner - Network

I also just spent a good chunk of lasterday considering the meaning of "community justice" here in San Francis-fiasco. The mayor's minions have cooked up a new plan they think that could help rid the city of the drug addicted waystrels, and homeless nuisances. We'll see I supppose...

As much as I'd like to hear something innovative in the works, I wasn't real impressed, but at least they were trying to impress I suppose.

I doubt anyone in ol' Vladimir Putin's Russia, or say in Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's Iran or in the Myanmar of Than Shwe's Junta would even bother to try...

Which i guess makes me at least resigned to appreciate the good ol' USA.



In fact here in the good ol' USA, your gov't starts with the constitution.

Which leaves you to figuring out what's important, and what you like and might want to preserve.

Perhaps consider what you want to continue to like about living in the good ol' USA...

And what you don't want others to f*k around with...

But before you get ahead of yourself, a good place to start is reading the constitution...

I suppose that's out of the question for most of y'all...

The fact you even stopped by some lowly lil' blog is nice enuf I suppose...

So here's an idea...

Some friends of mine recently recorded the whole archaic Constituition thang, all it's preambles and amendments etc...

Even the OG stuff about people that only own a small percentage of their freedoms and whatnot...

Here's a two minute sample...

The U.S Constituition ( as read by Debra Jean Dean)

and for the real diehards... go ahead and download the full 60 meg mp3

Then maybe you'll better appreciate Brian Dykstra, and his spoken ode...
