In the mid-1950s, rock 'n' roll music was widely condemned as a public nuisance and threat to public safety, and the junk science of the day claimed that teens were "addicted" to the music. Police officials across the countryin Connecticut, New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and other statesblamed juvenile delinquency and general unrest on rock 'n' roll. Minneapolis in 1959 banned a show hosted by Dick Clark "for the peace and well-being of the city" because the police chief was convinced that it would spark violence. It was not an isolated overreaction. Other cities that banned rock 'n' roll shows based on public safety ...

Because a great part of the people and especially of the, workmen and servants has now died in that pestilence, some, seeing the straights of the masters and the scarcity of servants, are not willing to serve unless they receive excessive wages, and others, rather than through labour to gain their living, prefer to beg in idleness: We, considering the grave inconveniences which might come from the lack especially of ploughmen and such labourers, have held deliberation and treaty concerning this with the prelates and nobles and other learned ...

November 27, 1868 Goat One of the more amusing images to emerge from this terrible chapter in American history is the notion of Custer, cinnamon-oiled hair, trademark red scarf and that broad brimmed sombrero, riding away with Wilmer McCleans table, strapped to the backside of his horse. Like Edgar Allen Poe and James Whistler (Whistlers Mother) before him, George Armstrong Custer was a Goat. No, that doesnt mean Greatest of all Time. This Goat was dead last in his class, West Point, class of 1861. Like many of his fellow goats, Custers contributions to history were vastly out of proportion to a less than brilliant ...
To understand 2021, watch a KGB defector’s mid-1980s interview
Post Date: 2021-04-02 08:00:37 by A K A Stone
On Thursday, Dan Bongino urged his audience to watch or just listen to a video of Yuri Bezmenov, a KGB defector to Canada, who came to love America and tried to warn Americans about the KGBs plans. Listen to him is eerie because he spelled out in detail exactly what the Soviet Union was doing it wasnt planning to take America done through the military. Instead, it intended to destroy America from within by infiltrating the education system, three generations of young people to hate this country and each other and then watching them go forth and plan the seeds of self-loathing throughout the nation. When it came to understanding how the Soviet Union operated, Bezmenov was ...

Post Date: 2020-09-18 18:58:22 by Deckard
Unearthed footage went viral on social media this week showing legendary comedian Johnny Carson poking fun at Joe Bidens multiple accusations of plagiarism back in 1987; blasting his speech that was too familiar from one delivered by a British politician. On the political scene, one of the Democratic candidates, a Senator Joseph Biden have you seen the problem hes been having? Carson asked his audience at the start of the Tonight Show one evening. And then the press got on him. And then he was charged also with taking part of Bobby Kennedys speeches. And Biden says, not to worry. He reassured his staff, he said, ...

Peter Green - (Fleetwood Mac) 1946-2020
Post Date: 2020-07-26 06:47:16 by Deckard
The death has been announced of Peter Green, founder of Fleetwood Mac. Green was born at Bethnal Green, East London, just down the road from Stepney where another legendary guitarist, Andy Powell of Wishbone Ash, was born. Andy was also a great fan, and paid tribute to him: He first came to my attention in John Mayalls Bluesbreakers, as a replacement for the departing Eric Clapton. His instrumental tune The Supernatural caught my ear as a masterful use of feedback and emotion. I was later fortunate to catch the debut of Peter Greens Fleetwood Mac at the Windsor jazz and Blues Festival in 1967
I got in the front row there, and was so overcome by the bands ...

Masked, Homeless, and Desolate
Post Date: 2020-07-24 06:48:07 by Deckard
Walk the streets in the United States and many countries these days and you will see streaming crowds of people possessed by demons, masked and anonymous, whose eyes look like vacuums, staring into space or out of empty sockets like the dead, afraid of their own ghosts. Fear and obedience oozes from them. Death walks the streets with people on leashes in lockstep. That they have been the victims of a long-planned propaganda campaign to use an invisible virus to frighten them into submission and shut down the worlds economy for the global elites is beyond their ken. This is so even when the facts are there to prove otherwise. It is a clear case, as Peter Koenig tells Michel ...
Rollerball imagined a completely different future of fame
Post Date: 2020-07-20 03:30:27 by Deckard
The movie: Rollerball (the 1975 original, not the 2002 remake) The future: Corporate nations and their supercomputers rule humanity, shaping digitized historical records to their liking. The masses are pacified by watching rollerball, a professional sport thats like football played on a roller derby loop with motorcycles. Rollerball players have a glamorous existence: fans idolize them, executives envy them, and theyre provided lavish homes, beautiful wives or girlfriends, and fancy TVs with extra screens that show smaller, differently angled shots of whatever theyre watching. In return for all this, they let corporations control their lives.Jonathan E. (played by James ...
