The Rich, the Poor, and Aretha Franklin
I was watching the Kennedy Honors program last night on TV…and is it any wonder why millions of Americans tune into this stuff? Aretha Franklin in a full length mink coat singing “You make me feel like a natural woman” (Obama’s new theme song) and then throwing her mink on the floor…it made me want to call up James Brown on the phone. ..and say.
“Hey, James! Aretha just stole your act! She just up did you one…. You just threw your cape on the ground..Aretha threw her million dollar MINK on the ground! She STOLE your signature move!”
Okay. James is dead. But…it was pretty cool.
Yes, if you want to see the great divide between the rich and the poor, all you had to do was watch the rich elites of the liberal Washington D.C. (no conservatives allowed) put on their finest diamonds, display their million dollar dental work, and celebrate themselves and all their liberal friends.
The Americans stole this idea from the Queen of course. The Kennedy Honors are the American Version of the Queen getting her command performances from various talents to perform for her. One remembers the brilliant line John Lennon’s said when the Beatles first preformed before the Queen:
“Will the people in the cheaper seats just clap your hands, and the rest of you, just rattle your jewelry.” (see video above)
History proves…we THINK things are changing, but they remain ever the same.
The rich rule over us all.
At first, Obama wasn’t there. We got big pictures of the communist Valerie Jarrett sitting next to Queen Michelle. And the first honoree was the much abused Puerto Rican, Rita Moreno, who somehow managed, against GREAT American prejudice and racists odds, to make a very nice living dancing and singing, in America, and probably hanging out with Bill Crosby.
And then there was Steven Spielberg’s tribute to George Lucas…who will NOT get the proceeds from any more Star Wars Laser swords, although, they are still selling stuffed Yoda dolls. George recently called Disney “white slaves” and so you have to wonder WHY Obama didn’t show up until after the Lucas award…it could have been a snub. Probably because Lucas or Spielberg is now supporting Hillary.
And then, it wouldn’t be complete without the Secretary of State, John Kerry, getting to introduce his best bud, James Taylor—
Hopefully the French were watching.
Last night I found out that..surprise…Carol King didn’t write any of the words to her music, her husband did! All these years they let you think she did it all herself.
Yes, the rich were out having a fabulous time at the Kennedy Center being entertained, and then Obama flew off to his Hawaiian vacation:
While all private vacations are paid for in part out of the first family’s own money, taxpayers cover the bulk of the flight cost and all of the cost for Secret Service detail. The most recent data shows that the 2013 Christmas vacation by the Obama family in Hawaii cost taxpayers $8.09 million.
Not a care in the world. Tell me, how much of their own money did they fork out? Nobody Knows.
For the last three days, I have been mopping up water in my basement. People all over St. Louis are out fighting the massive flood waters, many of them losing their homes because most insurance companies do NOT cover flood loss. Tornadoes just devastated Texas…and I thought it rather creepy that a lot of people were killed in the George W. Bush Freeway.
Iran is threatening our battle ships, China is angry, ISIS has camps all across America, and yet, Obama, the King of America, has not a care in the world. The country, it’s roads, it’s infrastructure, it’s people. are falling into a third world abyss, and he is out playing golf, watching movies…Obama is the TOP of the 1 percent..
And yet, you can bet your Aretha Franklin mink that when he gets to his last state of the union speech, all that has happened weather wise in December, will be blamed on ‘global warming.’ None of us will ever know how much of this was a natural event with a dash of weather engineering.
This morning two black ladies named Indiana, and Rose came to my door.
“Good news! The end is coming.” they said, as they handed me their flyers.
“We will soon all be with Jesus.”
I thought to myself …even Jesus could not take me far enough away from Obama.
And on that happy note, I’m taking tomorrow and New Year’s Day off.
Noah…is waiting for me…
….and so, let’s let George Carlin give us the New Year’s Eve Nobody Wins, thoughts for 2016. And forget about 2015 forever more.
It was a hell of a year.
