AMERICAN IDIOT

~DRUMPF ARRIVES IN BRITAIN THIS FRIDAY~

This will be one several greetings that the current “American Idiot” will receive upon his arrival the the U.K.

We really have to hand it to the Bits!

From the Idiot of 2004 to the Idiot of 2018!! 

I think he’s so dense that the sarcasm will be wasted on him.

American Idiot is the seventh studio album by American rock band Green Day. Produced by Rob Cavallo, the album was released in the UK on September 20, 2004 and in the US on September 21, 2004 by Reprise Records.

When my band Green Day released our album American Idiot almost 13 years ago, we knew we were lobbing a grenade into the lap of the culture. With the fallout from 9/11 and the Iraq War revealing deep divisions in American society, our confrontational lyrics and attitude clearly touched a nerve, if our 15 million records sold are any indication. But now that enough time has passed to let the dust and controversy settle, I finally feel comfortable revealing that the “American Idiot” I sang about was none other than President George W. Bush.

The main reason we made George W. Bush the “American Idiot” is because he started a war.

Enough Time Has Passed To Reveal George W. Bush Was The ‘American Idiot’

Oh, the things ‘so-called President’ Drumpf will be greeted with this week when he visits London: demonstrators, a giant “Trump Baby” balloon – and a uniquely British musical protest.
For the past couple of weeks, a social media campaign has sought to make Green Day‘s classic 2004 jam “American Idiot” the No. 1 tune in the UK by the time Drumpf arrives Friday, July 13.

The “Get American Idiot to No.1 for Drumpf’s UK Visit” Facebook page has been advocating for some type of musical protest during a Drumpf visit to Britain pretty much since the start of his presidency. After Drumpf’s “working visit” – as opposed to a formal state visit – was announced in April, the effort went into overdrive.

SHARING SOME LOVING

This is a common expression of human emotion.

This is the way it should be particularly at these tumultuous times we currently live in.

In spite of differences, different ideologies and opinions, the respect and love is there.

Let’s learn something from this action.

Let’s join together.

Let’s get along with each other.

TOTAL HYPOCRISY

… and The Dixie Chicks are on the way back.

goldswirl

This is not just a random walk down country controversy memory lane

It was March 10, 2003 that Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks told a crowd in London that they were “ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas,” referring to George W. Bush.

The resulting backlash was swift and severe.

The immediate reaction was not as hostile as one would expect.

The crowd cheered, and the superstar trio went to bed without a second thought about what they had just done. Within the week country radio stations were not only banning their music, they were renting steamrollers and hosting parties to crush all Dixie Chicks albums into dust.

It was as if an entire format had been waiting and planning for such a quip.

Politics aside, country music lost a superstar act that day.

WE ARE INVICTUS 

Memorable moments from Invictus Opening Ceremony

Thomas Neumann
ESPN.com

ORLANDO, Fla. — The Invictus Games were created to honor, educate and inspire, and the Opening Ceremony of this year’s event delivered the message with flying colors.

First lady Michelle Obama, Britain’s Prince Harry and Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman delivered stirring speeches after performances from the U.S. Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon, U.S. Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps, soprano Laura Wright and singer-songwriter James Blunt.

“Let’s put on a hell of a show in honor of our fallen comrades who didn’t make it,” Prince Harry said.

“We are Invictus.”

The most powerful moment arguably belonged to U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Israel Del Toro Jr., who took the stage to a standing ovation and silenced the crowd with the story of his injury and subsequent months long coma and rehabilitation.

He described how he was severely burned when his vehicle struck a land mine in Afghanistan in 2005, followed by an arduous road to recovery.

Del Toro said the only time he doubted his resolve was when he saw his scarred face and worried how son Israel Del Toro III, who was 3 years old at the time, would react. Del Toro thanked wife Carmen and Izzy, now 13, for their love and care.

Most of the 10,000 or so spectators stood for the entire roll call of 14 participating nations — Afghanistan, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, France, Georgia, Germany, Italy, Jordan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States — as nearly 500 competitors and their families entered Champion Stadium at the Walt Disney World Resort.

GoldSwirl

Freeman powerfully orated the Invictus Pledge to the crowd to help conclude the ceremony:

Your service sets an example
Your bravery inspires me
It is my honor now
To support and give you courage
To fight for you as you fought for us
To keep your family close beside
To take the steps you need to take
I am here for you

THE FREEDOM AGENDA

Why America Must Spread Democracy (Just Not the Way George Bush Did)

by James Traub
Reviewed by G. John Ikenberry

The Bush administration’s “freedom agenda” linked U.S. national security to the spread of democracy worldwide. After years of controversy and policy failure, democracy promotion is now greeted with sober skepticism. Realists are again cautioning against ideological crusades.

This spirited book argues that the United States should not abandon the democracy agenda, even as it needs to radically rethink its strategy and tactics.

As Traub sees it, the post-September 11 embrace of democracy promotion is now seen in the Middle East and elsewhere as a tool of hegemony and domination, pursued by a fearful superpower that has relaxed its own standards of openness and the rule of law at home.

Why did the chicken cross the road? …. “Unlikely but interesting answers”!!


Ch8

~~August 17, 2015~~ 

SO, WHY DID THE CHICKEN CROSS THE ROAD?

Why did the chicken cross the road?” is a common riddle joke. The answer or punch line is: “To get to the other side.”

The riddle is an example of anti-humor, in that the curious setup of the joke leads the listener to expect a traditional punchline, but they are instead given a simple statement of fact. “Why did the chicken cross the road?” has become largely iconic as an exemplary generic joke to which most people know the answer, and has been repeated and changed numerous times.

SARAH PALIN

The chicken crossed the road because, gosh-darn it, he’s a maverick!

BARACK OBAMA

Let me be perfectly clear, if the chickens like their eggs they can keep their eggs. No chicken will be required to cross the road to surrender her eggs. Period.

JOHN McCAIN

My friends, the chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.

HILLARY CLINTON

What difference at this point does it make why the chicken crossed the road?

GEORGE W. BUSH

We don’t really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either with us or against us. There is no middle ground here.

DICK CHENEY

Where’s my gun?

BILL CLINTON

I did not cross the road with that chicken.

AL GORE

I invented the chicken.

JOHN KERRY

Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken’s intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.

AL SHARPTON

Why are all the chickens white?

DR. PHIL

The problem we have here is that this chicken won’t realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after the problem on the other side of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he is acting by not taking on his current problems before adding any new problems.

OPRAH

Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross the road so badly. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I’m going to give this chicken a NEW CAR so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.

ANDERSON COOPER

We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.

NANCY GRACE

That chicken crossed the road because he’s guilty! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks.

PAT BUCHANAN

To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.

MARTHA STEWART

No one called me to warn me which way the chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer’s Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.

DR. SEUSS

Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I’ve not been told.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY

To die in the rain, alone.

GRANDPA

In my day we didn’t ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.

BARBARA WALTERS

Isn’t that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heartwarming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its lifelong dream of crossing the road.

ARISTOTLE

It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

BILL GATES

I have just released eChicken2014, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents and balance your checkbook. Internet Explorer is an integral part of eChicken2014. This new platform is much more stable and will never reboot.

ALBERT EINSTEIN

Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?

COLONEL SANDERS

Did I miss one?
