Something to Think About …. “😡 Making a Bad Situation Worse …. AMERICA 😡 …. “!!


Colleagues at a government-contracted shelter in Arizona had a specific request for Antar Davidson when three Brazilian migrant children arrived:

“Tell them they can’t hug.”

BLineNo hugging, no comforting each other?

THIS IS PURE EVIL!!
 America … the world is watching!!

Davidson quit this week after being a youth care worker at the Tucson shelter, Estrella del Norte, for just a few months. He decided to speak out about his experiences there in hopes of improving a system often shielded from public scrutiny. His comments in a telephone interview offer a rare look into the operation of a migrant shelter.
Davidson said he became disillusioned after the Drumpf administration’s “zero tolerance” policy began sending the shelter not only children who had crossed the border unaccompanied by adults, but also those separated from their parents.

THROUGH TREVOR NOAH’S EYES

Trevor Noah Explains Real Reason Drumf’s Arpaio Pardon 

Why is this important?

Drumpf has proven time and time again that there’s no bottom to his rhetoric, demagoguery and simple evil. Using the his ‘presidential’ power to pardon one of his ardent pre-campaign, birtherism buddy and totally white supremacist and racist top cop, law enforcer in Maricopa County.

Trevor explains it better with a slight hint of humor. 

I’ve found this is the only way one can make it through the day in spite of the seriousness of it all.

Hint: it has to do with the Russia investigation

by LAURA BRADLEY
AUGUST 29, 2017 8:55 AM

Drumpf’s decision to pardon Joe Arpaio has already ignited plenty of controversy – not least because many have taken it as the president encouraging law enforcement to break the law.

As Trevor Noah put it on The Daily Show Monday night, August 28, “Drumpf has been president for seven months – and like a teenage boy with a locked bedroom door, he’s been exploring his new powers.

And this weekend, Drumpf confirmed that he can get someone off all by himself.”

That could have very bad implications for Mueller’s investigation, Noah said:

what if Drumpf simply decides to pardon officials within his Cabinet who are convicted? In Arpaio’s case, Drumpf didn’t even wait for him to be sentenced before issuing a pardon. As Vanity Fair’s Emma Stefansky noted this weekend, that means that Drumpf’s colleagues could simply decide not to cooperate or testify in Mueller’s investigation – under the assurance that Drumpf will pardon them anyway.

And even Noah may find that outcome difficult to joke about.

If John McCain were uninsured, his surgery could have cost $76,000
That means that if McCain happened to be one of his uninsured or under-insured constituents, and not a Senator with his healthcare subsidized by American taxpayers, he might have had to shell out some $76,000 for his surgery – more than the average annual household income in America.

Rachel Maddow Show …. “Talking Arizona Latino Vote …. ‘Mi Familia Vota’ …. “!!

~~September 3, 2016~~ 

ARIZONA LATINO VOTE 

Rachel discussed the fact that 31% of the Arizona population is Latino.

AZ is a deeply red state which has the potential of become blue in 2016.

There’s a local movement intensely trying to register locals in time to be able to vote for the Presidential elections come November 8.

Rachel explained the situation and interviewed Francisco Heredia.

Take a look at the TV ad which has been airing locally.

It’s an effort of many television personalities, who have put aside their differences and competing TV stations.

All with the purpose of activating registration of the Latino vote.

New Spanish-language TV ad in Arizona designed to boost Hispanic voter registration

A first-of-its-kind media campaign launches in Arizona on Wednesday, August 31, in hopes of boosting Hispanic voter registration to historic highs

A new public service announcement co-produced by the state’s largest Spanish-language television and radio stations is set to air roughly 2,500 times through Election Day on Univision and Telemundo television stations and will feature DJ’s and talk show hosts from some of the state’s most popular Spanish-language radio stations, according to organizers.

The campaign is the brainchild of Mi Familia Vota, a nonpartisan voter registration group that is seeking to register roughly 95,000 new Latino voters in six states this year.

While volunteers are rounding up new registrants in California, Colorado, Florida, Nevada and Texas, Arizona is seen as the crown jewel of the effort this year.

That’s because no other state has been on the front lines of the years-long immigration policy fights and Hispanic leaders are eager to demonstrate their community’s growing political clout in the state.

No matter how a new voter registers, Mi Familia Vota is hoping to boost the numbers with its new ad campaign, which stars Spanish-language television and radio news anchors and morning talk show hosts. 

The ad begins with anchors asking whether the viewer is 18 or older and registered to vote. It reminds the viewer that voter registration continues in Arizona through Oct. 10.

Lat

“We are extremely proud of our Latino media partners,” said Ben Monterroso, executive director of Mi Familia Vota. “They are making history in an already historic election by continuing to help build political power for the Latino community.”

The campaign is backed by Azteca America; the Phoenix and Tucson affiliates of Univision and Telemundo; Univision-owned radio stations Que Buena 105.9 FM, Mas Variedad 106.3 FM and Latino Mix 100.3 FM; Contacto Total, a Phoenix-area radio station; stations owned by Entravision Radio, including La Tricolor 103.5 FM, Jose 106.9 and 107.1 FM & ESPN 710 AM; Mary Rabago Productions LLC; Mujeres Unicas LLC; Onda 1190-AM; Prensa Hispana; Teleritmo; and UniMás Arizona.

To start the day …. “Her humble beginnings”!!


~~November 24, 2014~~ 

I think you can tell that I am an ardent Lindsey Stirling fan. I found out about her when I saw here “Elements” YouTube video. I have been following her since. I was once told that she started in “America’s Got Talent” but I’ve never followed that show. 

Here what happened during her participation in that reality show.

LinT7

Raised in a Mormon community in Arizona, Lindsey studied classical music rigorously as a teenager. Lindsey’s love for the violin would not let go, and it became a comfort throughout her struggle with an eating disorder during her early adulthood. Through this passion, Lindsey has created a music world where the romance of Celtic folk music and modern classical meet the infectious energy of dance and electronica.

On stage, Stirling moves with the grace of a ballerina but works the crowd into a frenzy, “dropping the beat” like a rave fairy. Stirling is the model of a modern independent recording artist, with a symbiotic relationship with her fans. She is famed for taking “requests” and has recorded unique versions of the themes from “Phantom Of The Opera” and “Game Of Thrones”, the computer games “Zelda,” “Pokemon,” and “Skyrim,” as well as pop songs by Michael Jackson and Rihanna; She uploads them all to Lindseystomp, a secondary YouTube channel packed with music videos and short comedy films, many featuring her alter-ego – a ‘superfan’ named Phelba. 

Audition
Lindsey Stirling’s audition in Episode 510 consisted of playing the violin in a hip-hop style. Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and Howie Mandel all voted “Yes,” sending Lindsey to the Vegas Round.

“As is appears in … “

When the time came for the most important performance, these were the judges’ comments.

~~PIERS~~

“You’re not good enough, I don’t think, to get away with flying through the air and try to play the violin at the same time.”

~~SHARON~~

“You need to be in a group. What you are doing right now isn’t enough to fill a theater in Las Vegas”.

~~HOWIE~~

“You are great. That much movement threw off your playing.”

~I GUESS SHE PROVED THEM ALL WRONG~

After the Show

Being voted off “America’s Got Talent” turned out to be what she considers the best thing that’s ever happened to her. Rejection simply strengthened Stirling’s resolve to be herself. “The same reasons I was told I wouldn’t succeed are the reasons people travel hundreds of miles to see me now,” she laughs. “Because it’s different. Because it’s something you haven’t seen before …”

Since the show, Lindsey has flourished as an artist.

A classically trained violinist from Gilbert, AZ, Lindsey has entered a futurist world of electronic big beats and animation, leaping through the music industry with over 675 million views on YouTube, Billboard chart-topping hits and sold out tours worldwide.

Lindsey’s self-titled debut album featured twelve original tracks; including the viral piece “Crystallize,” which has racked up over 97 million YouTube views.

Stephanie Lynn “Stevie” Nicks (born May 26, 1948) is an American singer-songwriter who in the course of her work with Fleetwood Mac and her extensive solo career has produced over forty Top 50 hits and sold over 140 million albums.

She was deemed “The Reigning Queen of Rock and Roll” and one of the “100 Greatest Singers of All Time” by Rolling Stone, and, as a member of Fleetwood Mac, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.

As a solo artist, she has garnered eight Grammy Award nominations and, with Fleetwood Mac, a further five.

Nicks joined Fleetwood Mac in 1975 along with her then romantic partner Lindsey Buckingham. Fleetwood Mac’s second album after the incorporation of Nicks and Buckingham, Rumours, released in 1977, was the best-selling album of the year of its release and, to date, made claimed sales of 40 million copies worldwide, which makes it the sixth biggest selling studio album of all time.

The album remained at No.1 on the American albums chart for 31 weeks and reached the top spot in various countries worldwide. The album won Album of the Year in 1978 and produced four U.S. Top 10 singles, with Nicks’ “Dreams” being the band’s first and only U.S. number one hit.

Nicks began her solo career in 1981 with the album Bella Donna, which reached Platinum status less than three months after its release, and has since been certified quadruple-platinum. She has produced seven more solo studio albums to date, with her most recent titled In Your Dreams, released on May 3, 2011.

Nicks is known for her distinctive voice, mystical visual style, and symbolic lyrics.

~~Synopsis~~

Stevie Nicks was born May 26, 1948, in Phoenix, Arizona. She signed with Fleetwood Mac in 1975, becoming an overnight sensation. She also released solo albums. After years of struggling with addiction (during which time she continued to tour and put out new albums), Nicks regained her health and energy.

Fleetwood Mac reunited in 1997 and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.

~~Early Life~~

Singer and songwriter Stephanie Lynn Nicks was born on May 26, 1948, at Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona. Her adopted moniker, Stevie, reportedly came from her childhood pronunciation of “Stephanie” as “tee-dee.” Stephanie’s mother, Barbara, was a homemaker and father Jess Nicks, a corporate executive, first met at Arizona State University. They became college sweethearts, and the couple married in 1947.

The tight-knit Nicks clan included Stevie’s paternal grandfather, Aaron Nicks, a would-be country star. Grandfather Nicks handcrafted a guitar for young Stevie and taught her well-known selections from the country music cannon. By the time she was five years old, Stevie was gigging with him at local gin mills. Around this time her brother, Christopher, was born.

As Stevie’s father rose through the corporate ranks, the Nicks family skipped around Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Utah and California. By 1963, the family landed in the suburbs of Los Angeles, and Stevie enrolled at Arcadia High School. While there, she met her best friend, Robin, and joined Changing Times, a band patterned after The Mamas and The Papas. Her tenure with the group was short-lived; the Nicks family soon moved to Palo Alto, California, where Stevie attended Menlo Atherton High School.

Here, Stevie met classmate Lindsey Buckingham, a guitarist and fellow songwriter. The two shared a close bond and forged a strong musical partnership.

~~Partnership with Lindsey Buckingham~~

After high school, Stevie briefly enrolled in San Jose State College, but by 1968 she’d dropped out. The Nicks family relocated once again—this time, to Chicago—but Stevie opted to stay in California. Along with Buckingham, she joined the local band, Fritz, which established a small following. The group opened for bigger acts such as Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix before they disbanded in 1971.

By this time, Nicks and Buckingham were deeply romantically involved. The couple continued collaborate, and soon landed a contract with Polydor Records. In 1972, they released Buckingham-Nicks, an album that went largely unnoticed. In an effort to make ends meet, Stevie worked alternately as a maid, a dental assistant, and a waitress.

Concurrently, Mick Fleetwood, John McVie and Christine McVie of the rock group Fleetwood Mac struggled with band tensions and line-up changes. In 1974, the group started seeking out a new recording facility, and arranged a visit to Sound City Studio in the San Fernando Valley — the same studio where Stevie and Buckingham recorded their album.

As producer Keith Alson guided Fleetwood Mac through the facility, he showcased the studio’s sound capabilities by playing the Buckingham-Nicks track “Frozen Love.” The band was taken with Buckingham’s guitar sensibilities.
