Jaysus, Shut It Already

Hello.

I have ten minutes to write this morning.

Bono is back in the news whining yet again about illegal downloads. If I was reading his dreck correctly, he thinks that the Music Industry should become like China and restrict music access. Yes Bono, we should. No one should be allowed to download your crap music without a permit certifying that they should be certified.

Has it occurred to anyone in the music industry that it might not be illegal downloads but poor quality of music that is killing their industry? Maybe if they produced musicians rather than faces with digital enhancement people might buy their product. I think they should blame themselves. Not everyone likes Rap or Rythm and Blues. Or people who steal bits of old music and mess with it a bit and call it ‘new’. It’s not new. It’s theft.

Bono complaining about music theft is foolish. Especially if one listens to Televisions’ Marquee Moon and then compares it to U2’s first album Boy. They are strangely similar. Explain that one Bono.

Nevermind, do us all a favor. Just shut it, please.

I did say please.

What The **** Are You People Talking About?

Hello.

It’s interesting to me, everything I am reading on the Net about our newest President. What I find most intriguing is that the Republicans have set up shop and are now engaging in the “Whine and Blame ” game.

They are attempting, through a great deal of propaganda, to insinuate that the current economy was brought on by policies that are less than 8 months old. Apparently, the bail-out strategy they started when Bush was in office , the one they voted for so quickly, well, it’s now a bad idea that will ruin America. Also, from Republican bloggers and journalists, and this is what I find most interesting, it’s the fault of loser deadbeat homeowners that they are now underwater and foreclosures are rising. It is no longer the fault of unscrupulous bankers  who bought millions of dollars in bad debt, encouraged low-income families to take on high debt, and then hid the entire thing through off-the-books accounting.

If it weren’t so widespread I would just cry “sour grapes ‘ and leave it. Yet, it is main stream media who is buying into this smokescreen and selling it quite well.

Did you know:

*Republicans are trashing Obama over Guantanamo. They are the ones who held prisoners for over eight years without trial, were the center of the abuse debate, and basically ran the place like a Turkish prison without all the amenities. However, it’s Obama’s fault now.

No, it’s Bush and Cheney’s fault. They set the policies.

*That after eight years of complete bullying of  the EU, it’s now Obama’s fault that relations are not perfect. It takes more than a tour and smiling Michelle Obama to right the wrongs of the previous years. It takes time to rebuild trust and for those who thought it would happen overnight, the world does not work that way.

* Obama likes water-boarding. No, no he doesn’t. He has tried to stop this sort of thing and strangely has met with resistance from the REPUBLICANS.

And call me a wacky leftist who wishes to socialize the whole country and bring down the wealthy who started this giant economic free fall, but did I not just hear a REPUBLICAN pundit recently say we need OSAMA BIN LADEN to attack the U.S. again? Because that would show’em, that’d show ’em real good.

I think that instead of trying to hold onto the old policy of scaring people into compliance, the Republicans should take their whipping like Men. It’s not Obama’s fault Republican senators can’t keep it in their pants. He seems to actually like the woman he married. It’s not Obama’s fault that he’s not browbeating the FED into accepting damaging policies. He seem to genuinely care about  fixing everything Bush broke. And no one could do that in eight months.

It would be nice if the Repulicans who are now whinging would just admit they are the douche bags who brought this around and started to help not hinder every step Obama takes.

Then we might actually see progress.

Oh and Bill Maher: You’re just jealous that the President gets better coverage and more airtime than you do. Libertarian my ass. You’re as whiny as the rest of  them. Do everyone a favor and shut it.
