I retired from the NYPD and moved to Florida like many NYC policemen and firemen do- there is no state income tax here and it doesnt snow. I decided I needed a job so I worked for a local Sheriffs office for three years. Policemen always have their hands full when they deal with emotionally disturbed persons (EDPs in NYPD parlance). It was no different in south Florida. While working in Florida I had seen many incidents where an EDP was wrestled into handcuffs, pepper sprayed, or even shot with a taser. But I handled EDPs much differently than the average cop. And, since I didnt like to wear all that crap on my belt, I never wore a ...

The Cult Books That "Lost Their Cool" (previously hip books that have not aged well.)
Post Date: 2019-09-27 09:58:24 by Deckard
What exactly defines a cult book? Its qualities are subjective, often intangible and niche, though we all know one when we see it. Think Mervyn Peakes quirkily gothic Gormenghast novels or The Bloody Chamber, Angela Carters seminal reworked fairy tales. Think Doris Lessings radical showstopper, The Golden Notebook, or The Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart, a countercultural yarn still spoken of in rapt tones by its acolytes. Whats certain is that the cult classic inspires passionate devotion among its fans, who frequently weave their own myths around the texts. But another, underexamined, feature of the cult book is this: in contrast to the examples above, it can ...
When the NRA Supported Gun Control
Post Date: 2019-09-27 05:59:12 by Deckard
Time by Arica L. Coleman, July 29, 2016 On May 20, 2000, the legendary actor and president of the National Rifle Association Charlton Heston stood before the podium at the organizations 129th annual convention with a banner raised behind him featuring the America flag and the words Vote Freedom. As he concluded his address, Heston picked up a replica of a flintlock rifle, raised it over his head and declared, in his own dramatic fashion, that anyone who wanted to take his gun would have to pry it from my cold, dead hands. This iconic moment has come to define the NRA, which is now Americas leading pro-gun advocacy group. As the group ...
The Top 50 Most Annoying Songs of the 1970s
Post Date: 2019-09-26 11:57:07 by Deckard
Sometime in the late 1960s, annoying music scientists managed to isolate some of the key components of musical irritation to distill their essence into a formula which could be reproduced on a barbaric, industrial scale. The evil breakthroughs made by these men of sciencesupported by a highly mechanized and well-financed infrastructure-- facilitated a slew of unlistenable dreck that populated the radio airwaves for most of the ensuing decade. The 1970s was a particularly virulent decade for musical annoyance, because the toxicity of terrible music was exponentially amplified by schlock-filled TV musical variety shows, the peak of the teen heartthrob magazine industry, and a general ...
The Original Rock 'n' Roll Guitar God Was Actually a Goddess
Post Date: 2019-09-21 09:09:12 by Deckard
(Open Culture) Rock 'n' roll was born and baptized in a smoky nightclub somewhere, but the baby was conceived in a church. Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Little Richard were all raised Pentecostal, and their sounds were shaped by the raucous gospel music they grew up with. And Chuck Berry cribbed his duckwalk from a gospel singer called Sister Rosetta Tharpe, whose guitar style helped lay the groundwork for rock.Tharpe was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this week, alongside such worthies as Nina Simone and the Cars. If you find yourself doubting that this honor should be bestowed on a woman who was already in her forties when "Jailhouse Rock" hit the ...

9/11 Solidified the Destruction of Our Freedom
Post Date: 2019-09-13 05:28:12 by Deckard
The 9/11 attacks not only killed thousands of Americans, they also led to Americas forever wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Iran, and elsewhere, which have brought about the deaths of thousands of other Americans and millions of foreigners. But the 9/11 attacks did more than that. They also fortified the U.S. government as a national-security state, which solidified the destruction of the freedom of the American people. What is a national-security state? It is a type of governmental structure that has an enormous, permanent military-intelligence establishment. In the case of the United States, that means the Pentagon, the vast military-industrial complex, foreign ...
When Booze Was Banned but Pot Was Not

Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition, by Daniel Okrent, Scribner, 468 pages, $30Of the 27 amendments to the U.S. Constitution, the 18th is the only one explicitly aimed at restricting people's freedom. It is also the only one that has ever been repealed. Maybe that's encouraging, especially for those of us who recognize the parallels between that amendment, which ushered in the nationwide prohibition of alcohol, and current bans on other drugs.But given the manifest failure and unpleasant side effects of Prohibition, its elimination after 14 years is not terribly surprising, despite the arduous process required to undo a constitutional amendment. The real puzzle, as the ...

Steely Dan’s Sophisticated ‘Countdown to Ecstasy’

EmailWith the success of their 1972 debut album Cant Buy a Thrill and single hits Do It Again and Reelin in the Years, Walter Becker and Donald Fagen were compelled to transform Steely Dan from studio construct to working band. To record Cant Buy a Thrill, the duo and producer Gary Katz had assembled a sextet to get the two songwriters original material on tape. Now they were pushed onto the concert trail to cash in on back-to-back hits while facing parallel pressure to deliver a sophomore set that could add to their career momentum. Stage and studio thus became crucibles for the original lineup, which consisted of other East Coast musicians: ...

Know Your Ruby Ridge Apologists

ByPeter R. Quinones - August 22, 2019 Books have been written about the ATF/Marshals Service and FBI actions at Ruby Ridge so great detail is not needed here. Randy Weavers 14-year-old son, Sammy, and his wife Vicki were killed by government bullets. One US Marshall was shot and killed. When Weaver and his family moved to Idaho (about 40 miles from the Canadian border) Randy started to fellowship with the Aryan Nations, a white supremacist group that had a property in the area. Although Randy didnt join the group the association is damning enough, especially when the corporate media gets running with that narrative. The ATF had an undercover agent ...
Siege at Ruby Ridge: The Forgotten History of the ATF Shootout That Started a Militia Movement
Post Date: 2019-08-21 05:36:18 by Deckard
The Siege at Ruby Ridge is often considered a pivotal date in American history. The shootout between Randy Weaver and his family and federal agents on August 21, 1992, is one that kicked off the Constitutional Militia Movement and left America with a deep distrust of its leadership in particular then-President George H.W. Bush and eventual President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Janet Reno. The short version is this: Randy Weaver and his wife Vicki moved with their four kids to the Idaho Panhandle, near the Canadian border, to escape what they thought was an increasingly corrupt world. The Weavers held racial separatist beliefs, but were not involved in any violent activity or ...
THIS DAY IN HISTORY – The Ramones play their first public gig at CBGB in downtown Manhattan – 1974
Post Date: 2019-08-16 06:49:27 by Deckard
Via History.com Five years to the day after half a million rain-soaked hippies grooved and swayed to the psychedelic sounds of the Grateful Dead at Woodstock, four young men from Forest Hills, Queens, took to the stage of an East Village dive bar in jeans, motorcycle jackets and Converse high-tops to launch a two-minute sonic attack on everything those 60s icons stood for. The date was August 16, 1974, the bar was CBGB and the band was the Ramones, giving their debut public performance. The rapidly shouted words with which they opened that show and launched the punk-rock revolution were, as they would always be, One! Two! Three! Four! One eyewitness to the scene was music ...

Gordon Lightfoot’s Tale of a Ship’s Crew and Its Captain
Post Date: 2019-08-10 18:47:51 by Deckard
EmailWhen listeners first heard Gordon Lightfoots heart-wrenching tale of the 29 brave souls who lost their lives aboard a ship in his 1976 hit, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, many assumed that he had chosen a subject from perhaps a century earlier. The singer-songwriter had scored a handful of hits in his native Canada and had first come to the attention of worldwide audiences with his 1970 smash, If You Could Read My Mind. After a series of mid-chart singles, Lightfoot scored what would be his biggest hit, 1974s Sundown, which reached #1 in the U.S. and Canada. It was followed that same year by another big success, Carefree ...

In this classic interview the great Ron Paul demonstrates how he has always been singularly dedicated to the principles of liberty and justice. Here he forthrightly speaks truth to power, exposing those dark subterranean forces which actually control the destiny of America, sinister forces which observers across the political spectrum today describe as the deep state. Candor, courage, consistency, and compassion define this man who will go down in the annals of history as Americas greatest statesman.
