As I tended bar at the Sportsmens’ Tavern in Buffalo, New York last night, the crowd roared while Kinky Friedman sang a cut form his new CD— ‘The Lonelist Man I Ever Met’. Ironically it is a song about a man dying of cancer, but Kinky has his way with words and we all loved it. Even more ironic is the fact that it actually describes the Sate of the World Today, especially in America. I actually thought is should be Donald Trump’s road song for his campaign trail.

I was so moved by Kinky’s sincerity and with the grace with which he performed throughout the evening that I bought his CD as well as a book that he authored entitled— ‘Heroes Of A Texas Childhood’.  In fact,  I stayed up half of the night reading it. I have been tending bar at the Sportsmens’ near 17 years now and have seen hundreds of acts in the last 6 or 7 years but there is only one Kinky. I consider it an Honor and a Privileged to have had the chance to meet with and talk to him for the second time in two years. He is Truly a Class Act. He is one of My Heroes.

Earlier in the night he sang a song which he wrote about Ira Hayes entitled— ‘The Ballad of Ira Hayes’. Hayes is famous as being the giant Indian Marine figure raising the flag on Iwo Jima with the other five guys. Being a Marine myself, it was especially touching as I wiped the tears from my eyes. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the whole bar.

This morning when I woke up, I checked out Kinky’s website. I ended up on the Rollingstone.com website. It was an interview with him. To my surprise, Kinky would like to see a Trump – Sanders Presidential Ticket. In the Interview, he was asked: “In politics, do you think we have a Nelson Mandela or a Winston Churchill or an Abraham Lincoln around?”

He asnwered:

“Right now we just have Donald Trump.
Donald Trump is as close as we’ve come, and that’s not close enough. But it’s true, Donald Trump at least awakens some kind of visceral chord.”

“You think so?”

“Yeah, it’s obvious. These guys really are the Crips and the Bloods, the Democrats and the Republicans. When you look at what the Democrats used to be, when you look at people like Harry Truman and Sam Rayburn and Ann Richards and Barbara Jordan – you don’t see that with the Democrats anymore. They think they’re Democrats, but they’re not. I suggest that they limit all these elected officials for two terms, one in office, and one in prison. That would well do it. They are unquestionably corrupt, and the ones who are not corrupt, so far, are probably Trump and Bernie. I wouldn’t know who to vote for because I would like to have a [yodels] Jeeeeeewish president. That would be Bernie, of course.”

“You like Bernie?”

“I do like Bernie, and I like Trump.”

“What do you like about them?”

“People can call them anything they want, but they can’t call them corrupt. You and I would be corrupt if we’d been in the Senate 35 years. That’s the problem. Musicians can better run our country then politicians. And maybe we wouldn’t get a lot done in the morning, but we’d work late. We’d be honest. We’d be creative problem solvers. And we’re not seeing it. That’s what JFK wanted. That was the little thing behind his inspiration – that people like you and I should get into politics, we could make our country great again. And we didn’t do it for whatever reason, and the result is we have this political class. It’s very detrimental to what I think America’s all about.”

Helter Skelter; Donald Trump signs Republican pledge not to run as an Independent…

Did The Donald Give Up his Trump Card?

Will this Compromise, His Pledge to: “Make America Great Again”?

America Needs a Leader not a Puppet— that Gives Into a ‘Political Party’. America’s Two Party Political System is A Farce.  Both Parties are Bought and Sold via the Lobbyists.

Wake Up Mr. Trump, You are but an Option. You Have a Chance to Make a Difference; to ‘Make America Great Again!” You Don’t Need Any More Money or Power. Thus I Do Believe that You Do Care About  the U.S.A.!

Think Donald, Think! We Need a Third Party. ‘We the People’, Need a Voice; Someone who Cares about and Considers the Welfare and State of Being of ‘We the Little People. America is a Business. It is Time that The United States is Run like a Business. The Bottom Line is Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness; Prosperity. Not Economic Bondage…

During the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln made a speech as he hoped that: “this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” Unfortunately, today we now have a system of government that is Comprised— Of the Rich, By the Rich and For the Rich?

HELLO! It is Time to Change the Rules! Campaign Financing is Out of Control. NO MORE— Influence Peddling for Personal Gain! NO MORE Quid Pro Quo. We have to put a Stop to All the Deceptions, Collusion and Double Standards. It is Time for Our government to Fess Up to— All of it’s Denials and Lies that were Manufactured in the Name of Greed.

Our Politicians Are Not High and Almighty. They Work for us—‘We the People’! They Must Answer to us—‘We the People’! It is Our Job to Hold Them All— Accountable for Their Actions. We Should Not FEAR Them. They Should FEAR us-‘We the People’. Speak Out! The Main-Stream Media is Controlled by The Powers That Be…    

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” — United States Declaration of Independence

 

It is Time to Change the Dirty Diaper!

Trump Warns GOP in ‘Fox Debate’— “LEVERAGE”…

Donald Trump played Hard-ball last night, he exercised his ability; as he Out-Politicked the GOP. He pulled his ‘Trump Card’ in the first question of the ‘Fox News’ Debate’— “LEVERAGE”. He blatantly refused to pledge his support to the eventual nominee of the Republican party and he also refused, to pledge not to run as an independent campaign against that person.

BRAVO— as The Audience Booed, the Donald Responded:

“I’m in it to Win!” “LEVERAGE”… 

And, Believe It or Not, ‘Leverage’, is the Name of the Game. Politics is a Business and America Suffers because Politicians— Sell Out America’s Best Interests via the Lobbyists. They Don’t give a Damn about—‘We the People’. They Don’t give a Damn about America. It is Time that Somebody Runs America Like a Business. It is Time to Get Rid of the Lobbyists and the Revolving Door.

Like It or Not, Donald Trump is Ready, Willing and Able, as He  Intends to Get the Job Done. He Will Run as An Independent, If it becomes Necessary. He Doesn’t Need to Take Any Money from the Corporate Lobbyists.

The Republicans on the other hand, Can’t Afford or even Risk the Republican Vote Being Split.They need Every Vote they can muster including his; if they want to have a Chance at Beating Hillary. And that, My Fellow Americans is ‘LEVERAGE’. 

I Wonder if He Would Compromise and Settle for Vice-President? 

Frankly, It’s Time to Reconsider and Redefine Our Values and Get Our Priorities In Order. It’s not a Democratic or Republican Thing. It is about Saving America. It / She, America is What She Is, But Not What She Should Be or Could Be. It’s About Our U. S. Constitution and Our Bill of Rights. It’s About Corruption and Corporate Security; which are Destroying America. It is Time to Break the Link Between Corruption & Government & Corporate Bull-Shit! It is Time to Confront the Blatant Injustices of Our Times, which are Perpetuated by the Economic and Political Elites.

“These United States of America can never be destroyed from forces outside its borders. If America falls, it will fall from within, brought down by apathy. When good people do nothing, Anarchy reigns”Abraham Lincoln 

Ironically, Abe Lincoln’s prophetic warning about Corporations went unheeded? It is Time to Bring Jobs Back to This Country. It is Time We Start Manufacturing Our Own Products Again. We Need New Factories! New Investment! It is Time For Corporate America to Pay Their Fair Share And Reinvest In Our Future America. We Can No Longer Afford to Allow Them to Hide Off Shore or Over Seas; Avoiding Their Tax Responsibility!

It is Time for We the People to — Wake Up & Think Purple! Knowledge is Power & What We Don’t Know Is Destroying America! One by One,  Our  Human Rights & Freedoms Are Being Swallowed Up & Wiped Out! We are Being Enslaved by Chaotic Design; Premeditated Intent. It is but a Terrible Disgrace as Corporate Security Hides Behind National Security. It is only a matter of time before our Second Amendment is Challenged again — A Right to Bear Arms?

It is Very Disturbing to See America’s that are Homeless? Especially Veterans that are Homeless or People that are Mentally Ill or Drug Addicts whom are Homeless. What’s Going On with This So Called New Health Care System? Is the Devil in the Details? What About the Health Care that Was Promised to Our Veterans. In Many States, Treatment for Our Vets is Pathetic?   What AboutGENERATION RX — American Kids Being Drugged to Death? Ironically, Science is Killing Us via — Man-Made Epidemics?

 “Just look at us. Everything is backwards. Everything is upside-down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the major media destroy information, and religion destroys spirituality.” Michael Ellner

It is Time to Address the Drug Epidemic in this Country that is Ruining Families, Destroying Lives, Destroying America? We Must Protect Our Borders and Address Gangs and Illegal Aliens. We Best Rethink Our Overpopulated & Understaffed Prison System or Else? We Best Rebuild Our Basic Infrastructure — Roads, Bridges, Sewer Systems, etc. or Else? Why Don’t We Rebuild and Utilize Our Railways & Waterways / Sea-ports?

“Let our government be like that of the solar system. Let the general government be like the sun and the states the planets, repelled yet attracted, and the whole moving regularly and harmoniously in several orbits.”
-John Dickinson, 1787  

Unfortunately, far too many People have Fallen Asleep in a State-of-Denial as far too many Arrogant Politicians –Get the Checks and the Appalling Lobbyists –Hold the Balance  as our U.S. government is Bought and Paid For? Alas, our System has turned to a Free for All; fraught with corruption as temptation, collusion and intimidation overwhelm  in the name of the almighty dollar — by a Greedy Den of Liars and Slimy Thieves. Ultimately, the USA , our Republic is, but a Spectacle of Turbulence and Contention as our Representatives are Possessed by Greed and Obsessed with Power; Methods to Their Madness. They Will Do Anything to Stay in Office. Our Country is Paralyzed in a State of Competition and Denial.  God Help Us! United We Stand, Divided We Shall Fall — Into A Cultural Divide Between the ‘Haves’ and the ‘Have-Nots’ as Money is god.
