A special dedication for this week’s travelin’ music

This guy I know — I’ll call him “Boose” — is getting married this weekend for the first time, just two days short of his 50th birthday. The man held out for a long, long time, but the once impregnable citadel of his bachelorhood finally met a conquering force it could not resist in the great and powerful Miss LK.

So Boose my man, this week’s Friday Evening Travelin’ Music is dedicated to you, courtesy of the inimitable Miss Nina Simone. And don’t worry, bro, I’ll be standing right there beside you when the deed gets done.

The ceremony, that is.

There is no shortage of shameful exploits by TSA agents and other airport security personnel in the post 9/11 era. An octogenarian World War II hero was delayed and repeatedly searched when he attempted to board a plan carrying his Congressional Medal of Honor. A planeload of soldiers were forced to remain in their jetliner during a four-hour layover. TSA officials ruled the servicemen posed a security threat because they had weapons stored in the belly of the aircraft. The soldiers were en route home after a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Another soldier, who had his jaw wired shut following surgery for a bullet wound, was prohibited from boarding his aircraft because he possessed a small pair of wire cutters required to cut open his jaw in a medical emergency.-AmSpec

“The stakes could not be higher,” stated Congresswoman Diana DeGette.

Congresswoman DeGette, you can say that again. The stakes absolutely could not be higher, but not for lack of abortions. At stake here is the whole American Experiment; the Founders’ vision of a society governed by ordinary citizens that gives full expression to the ideals of liberty, justice, and opportunity for all. The Founders got it right; the result was America — a strong nation based on responsible citizens, free markets, and limited government. Democrats, who seem to envision a nation of supplicants in the name of compassion, have got it all wrong.- AmSpec

Well, I reckon in a few hours old Boose will be as dead as UGA VII. It’s kind of sad he decided to end it all. There’s many a time after a long day of lugging beer and dodging potholes I wished I could just cut loose and stay out boozing it up till 4 in the a.m. Old Boose will be working till 90 and wearing that ball and chain just to pay the shopping debts.

I mean, it seems OK at first. You think you’re marrying an @@. But sooner or later she turns into a Sister Dusty and you’re stuck. It hurts too much to stay married and costs too much to get single.

Anyhow, I’m glad Bookman is standing up for old Boose. Ever notice how people in misery ain’t satisfied till everybody else is miserable?

Have a good night everybody. And to old Boose I say, booze can help some. Not that rotgut fancy stuff josef nix drinks or the cheap table wine Sister Dusty guzzles, but real boose–I mean, booze.

Josef Nix-

The origins of “coonass” are obscure, and Cajuns have put forth several folk etymologies in an effort to explain the word’s origin. Some amateur linguists believe that the word refers to the Cajuns’ occasional habit of eating raccoons, or from the use of coonskin caps by the Cajuns’ ancestors while fighting in the Battle of New Orleans or in the Revolutionary War under Spanish colonial Governor Bernardo de Gálvez. Yet others hold that the term derives from the shape of Cajun women after having children (like a raccoon viewed from above).[2]

The most popular folk etymology, however, stems from late Louisiana congressman and cultural activist James “Jimmy” Domengeaux, who maintained that “coonass” derived from the continental French word “connasse,” which means “stupid girl/woman” (the qualifier for a male is “connard.” According to the French Wiktionary, the French Larousse dictionnary, and the French Wikipedia, “connasse” entered the French language at the beginning of the 19th century and the term translates loosely to dirty prostitute). Domengeaux asserted that Frenchmen used the term in reference to Cajun soldiers serving in France during World War II, and that Anglo-American soldiers overheard the term, transformed it into “coonass” and brought it back to the U.S. as a disparaging term for Cajuns. Citing Domengeaux’s etymology, Louisiana legislators passed a concurrent resolution in the 1980s condemning the word. Contrary to popular belief, the lawmakers did not ban the term.[2]

Research has since disproved Domengeaux’s “connasse” etymology. Indeed, photographic evidence shows that Cajuns themselves used the term prior to the time in which “connasse” allegedly morphed into “coonass.”[3]

Other etymological explanations exist, none of them convincing. The origin of “coonass” remains obscure and uncertain. Two or more causative factors may have been mutually reinforcing in fostering the term coonass.

Boose better look into his tax status and his future household income before taking the big leap. “Shacking” may have saved him a lot of money.

I’m not sure, I’ve brought the subject up before…I grew up not being allowed to use the term around my maternal grandparents since they said the word was based on the vulgar term for “a woman’s privates…” A cunnasse was a “big c**t,” The Acadians used the term pretty much a mf, and it was corrupted into Coona** by the English speakers and applied pejoratively to the Cajuns who took the term and wore it with a certain pride…Dad’s folks, Creoles and NOT Cajuns, use the term freely but pronounce it as French and generally pejoratively…I’m real careful using it around Cajuns, myself…just to be on the safe side since I’m not Cajun and really don’t want to offend one, and not for pc reasons or manners–self perservation! :-)

Japan’s domestic economy has fallen into a deflationary phase for the first time since 2006, the Cabinet Office announced Nov. 20. Deputy Prime Minister Naoto Kan and Finance Minister Hirohisa Fujii made grave statements about the return of deflation in Japan, saying that fiscal stimulus was not sufficient to revive consumption levels and boost prices.

Even though growth returned to the Japanese economy in the second quarter of 2009 due to government stimulus efforts, deflation will jeopardize conditions for a sustained rebound.

“Conservatives agree that as point person, you failed. Liberals are growing in that consensus as well,” said Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Tex.). “For the sake of our jobs, will you step down from your post?”

Rep. Michael C. Burgess (R-Tex.) took a different tack. “I don’t think that you should be fired,” he told Geithner. “I thought you should have never been hired.”

“Hundreds of private e-mails and documents hacked from a computer server at a British university are causing a stir among global warming skeptics, who say they show that climate scientists conspired to overstate the case for a human influence on climate change.

The e-mails, attributed to prominent American and British climate researchers, include discussions of scientific data and whether it should be released, exchanges about how best to combat the arguments of skeptics, and casual comments — in some cases derisive — about specific people known for their skeptical views. Drafts of scientific papers and a photo collage that portrays climate skeptics on an ice floe were also among the hacked data, some of which dates back 13 years.

In one e-mail exchange, a scientist writes of using a statistical “trick” in a chart illustrating a recent sharp warming trend. In another, a scientist refers to climate skeptics as “idiots.””

This is fascinating reading …………. wake up call !

A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.

“Very few people were true Nazis,” he said, “but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen.

Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.”

We are told again and again by “experts” and “talking heads” that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant.

It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectra of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.

The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.

The hard quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the “silent majority,” is cowed and extraneous.

Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority was irrelevant.

China’s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.

The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a war mongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel and bayonet.

And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were “peace loving”?

History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don’t speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.

Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.

As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts: the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand. So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands, world wide, read this and think about it, and send it on before it’s too late.

And remember, the first thing the fanatics will do to the silent majority is to disarm them.

A double set of Larry Graham. One of baddest slap bassist ever, and a purveyor of funk trained by the Godfather of Soul.

ABM,

The Godfather of Soul was multi-talented. He also trained me in the finer points of pugilism when I was 18. He said with my brash attitude I might need to develop some skills in case anybody didn’t buy the bluster.

Back, guys–had to make a football pick: Utah State + 22 1/2

Normal–Enjoyed the Barleycorn selection.

AmVet–Listening to the Jonny Lange selection now. Honestly, I’m not familiar with Keagy and SIms, will have to check them out.

That sounds like good advice. I never had the brash attitude, but would lash out like a junkyard dog when cornered.

“And you all thought I was just an ignorant heathen, didn’t ya?”

Not me, bro. One thing I’ve learned in life is to be suspicious of people who are too “hey, look at me” with their religious beliefs (several “conservative” posters on the Bookman blog fall into that category). Too much “certainty” and “enthusiasm” always leaves me wondering what they’re trying to cover up. Ultimately, the MOST faithful people are typically those who DON’T claim to have all the answers.

Make any sense?

The Queen track was wrong on so many levels. Got me rolling on the floor laughing. Someone else even posted it too.

Guess I’ll post another one.

Well, I was just checking out the blog and wouldn’t you know, there’s Brother RedNeck @ 4:41 passing out compliments as usual. He sounds a little beat down hauling beer all day and hobbling around with his “artheritis” Obama’s health policy also worries him a bit ’cause ol’ RedNeck might not get the FREE medicine at his age. Just let him drift off.

But I do respect old folks and would dedicate a song to him if I had the music. “You aint nothing but a hound dog.” . Reminds me of Brother RedNeck every time. Just like a fireplug and a tree does. At church, he says he’s converted and rushes out the back door before the preachings over.. Maybe it’s the snakes. But I don’t think so. When you gotta go, you gotta go.

Now, would I tell a lie? Nope. That’s the truth..

Not sure where you grew up, ABM, but in Jersey you had to fight unless you wanted to be someone’s b!tch. I never started any fights, but was able to finish a few……
