FREEDOM CONCERT -PEOPLE UNITED

The worst thing we can do to Donald Trump is take away his audience

you reap what you sow
proverb
you eventually have to face up to the consequences of your actions

Robert Reich threw out an idea to his nearly 1.7 million Facebook followers this week that has a lot of people asking: How do we make this happen?

In a Facebook post on Sunday, December 18, the former secretary of labor under President Bill Clinton noted the dearth of celebrities and musicians willing to participate in Donald Trump’s inauguration festivities.

Many supported Hillary Clinton.

So Reich is championing the idea that celebrities host an event of their own on Inauguration Day to give the official event, starring Trump, a run for the ratings.

“Someone just suggested to me a televised ‘freedom concert’ to air at the same time as the inauguration – with huge celebrities like Beyoncé and Jay Z, Madonna, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Gaga, Bruce Springsteen, and so on,” Reich wrote.

“Alec Baldwin MC’s the event, playing Trump as he does on SNL.

Presto.

The Trump inauguration loses all the TV ratings. Basically, no one watches it.”

Reich also suggested that such a concert could raise money for a variety of progressive causes, including “the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Lambda Legal, NAACP, Common Cause, CAIR, IRAP, SPLC, Environmental Defense Fund, Human Rights Campaign Fund, MoveOn, Economic Policy Institute, Inequality Media, and GLAAD.”

His post inspired a Change.org petition that, as of Wednesday morning, had attracted nearly 44,000 signatures and dozens of supporters on Twitter.

Bruce Springsteen …. Gotta love “The Boss” … !!

THE BOSS SPEAKS

This is old news by now.

I needed to recognize Bruce Springsteen’s actions and comments as they are very close to my heart.

I do not live in North Carolina. I live in Florida.

I am a member of the LGBTQ community and, as such, this law and others that may be coming down the pike, are very worrisome.

Huge steps were made this past year to assure equality of all LGBTQ citizens.

It all stems from the Obergefell v. Hodges SCOTUS decision.

Those pushing laws against a decision already made by the highest court of the land only show how small and petty their hearts are.

They claim “religious freedom”.

In my book, religion dictates kindness and love for all.

This law does the total opposite and shows the real “faces” of those behind such underhanded, scheming actions. Keep in mind that these are government officials elected to abide by the rule of law and the will of the people who got then there.

Thank you, Mr. Springsteen.

A Statement From Bruce Springsteen On North Carolina

APRIL 8, 2016

As you, my fans, know I’m scheduled to play in Greensboro, North Carolina this Sunday. As we also know, North Carolina has just passed HB2, which the media are referring to as the “bathroom” law. HB2 — known officially as the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act — dictates which bathrooms transgender people are permitted to use.

Just as important, the law also attacks the rights of LGBT citizens to sue when their human rights are violated in the workplace. No other group of North Carolinians faces such a burden.

To my mind, it’s an attempt by people who cannot stand the progress our country has made in recognizing the human rights of all of our citizens to overturn that progress. Right now, there are many groups, businesses, and individuals in North Carolina working to oppose and overcome these negative developments.

Taking all of this into account, I feel that this is a time for me and the band to show solidarity for those freedom fighters. As a result, and with deepest apologies to our dedicated fans in Greensboro, we have canceled our show scheduled for Sunday, April 10th.

Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry — which is happening as I write — is one of them. It is the strongest means I have for raising my voice in opposition to those who continue to push us backwards instead of forwards.

Bruce Springsteen Closed Out Jon Stewart’s ‘Daily Show’ Run

The Boss provided the outgoing host’s “moment of zen”

Jon Stewart ended his long, storied run on The Daily Show last night, but before shutting the lights and handing over the keys to Trevor Noah, he managed to sneak in one more memorable appearance, one he referred to as his “moment of zen.”

Bruce Springsteen stopped by for a pair of triumphant performances of

Land of Hope and Dreams” and “Born to Run.”

To start the day …. “Wishing and hoping”!!


~~September 28, 2014~~ 

A combined message: war, peace, rich folks, soldiers, timeless.

I found this graphic this morning as I browsed through the postings in Facebook. The reason I chose to post it is that even though this man lived from 1912 through 1967, I consider these words timeless. 

I assume that he lived through WWII, Korea and Vietnam and all the conflicts and “skirmishes” that happened during his life time. 

Yet, these words could very easily apply to our current times. 

If only ….. this would happen.

“As it appears in …. “

Woodrow Wilson “Woody” Guthrie (July 14, 1912 – October 3, 1967) was an American singer-songwriter and folk musician whose musical legacy includes hundreds of political, traditional and children’s songs, ballads and improvised works. He frequently performed with the slogan This Machine Kills Fascists displayed on his guitar. His best-known song is “This Land Is Your Land.”

Many of his recorded songs are archived in the Library of Congress. Such songwriters as Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Bruce Springsteen, Robert Hunter, Harry Chapin, John Mellencamp, Pete Seeger, Andy Irvine, Joe Strummer, Billy Bragg, Jerry Garcia, Jay Farrar, Bob Weir, Jeff Tweedy, Bob Childers and Tom Paxton have acknowledged Guthrie as a major influence.

Many of his songs are about his experiences in the Dust Bowl era during the Great Depression when Guthrie traveled with displaced farmers from Oklahoma to California and learned their traditional folk and blues songs, earning him the nickname the “Dust Bowl Troubadour.”

Throughout his life Guthrie was associated with United States Communist groups, though he was seemingly not a member of any.
