  1. Soundgarden — “The Day I Tried To Live”

    What an ass-kickin’ rock and roll song!

    I found an awesome acoustic version of this beautiful song on the YouTube. The artist was a great guitar player — but his singing was completely gay. Just couldn’t bring myself to post it here. I’ll just have to settle for the Soundgarden studio version for now – not that there’s anything wrong with that!


    What a great blues/rock band Led Zeppelin could have been with someone like Chris Cornell spitting out the vocals instead of Percy.

    Percy ruined everything.

    • I sometimes find myself an anarchist, too.

      It won’t work however.

      Isabel Paterson made a most excellent argument against anarchism in her book: “The God of the Machine”. An absolute must read.

  2. “Nato protesters arrested in Chicago raid held on terrorism conspiracy charges”

    I wonder if our country can hold NATO on the same charges…


    Quotes from the article:

    “The city has so far failed to produce any evidence or the search warrant affidavit used in the raid,” said Kris Hermes of the National Lawyers Guild.

    “When police detained the people, they also seized parts of a beer-making kit, including bottles and caps, and a cellphone, Gelsomino said.”

  3. Chinese company to buy US movie theater chain AMC


    Seeing more and more of this,

    Wang Jianlin started working as the General Manager for the Dalian Wanda Group. He has served as its CEO since 1992 he joined the Communist Party of China in 1996. He served as deputy to the 17th National Congress of the Communist Party of China.

    He now serves as the Vice-Chairman of the All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce, and has been a member of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference since 2008.

    • This reminds me of an interview I saw with a Secret Service agent in which he claimed one of the President’s children that he supervised was bragging that they’ve smoked pot in the White House and people his/her age were being locked up for it.

    • Right on, Penn.

      Loved the little rant on State’s Rights, too.

      Penn works hard on Sundays. I do, too. It is the first day of the work week and everyone should be on the ball, on their toes, workin’ harder than any other day of the week. It sets the tone for the rest of the work week. Which is of course every day of the week, the month and the year.

  4. “Your young people, attacking the symbols of power that they can see, President, Governors, public buildings. They’re resistant ways that make them feel good, not those that actually accomplish anything.”

    Quote from the mini series Amerika, 1987

  5. zack :
    I’m interested to see if the content of the movies played will change any, probably not but the name should, from AMC Theatres (American Multi-Cinema) to CMC (Communist Multi Cinema).
    Also Jp Morgan Group and The Carlyle Group are among previous owners.

    Just go ahead and admit it if you bring your own drinks or snacks to the movies….LOL

    • Actually I haven’t gone to the movie theatre in quite some, since my children were younger and ever since we had to save up just to go, haha…. now that’s inflation folks, but if I did, I would take a flask and some homemade snacks in my drawers rather than pay 10 bucks for shitty popcorn, but those days are gone, I quite drinking and quite going to movies,I prefer to spend my money and time on much more productive causes.

      • I agree completely Zack. I like to avoid the programming, and having the ideas fed into me over and over
