Should the Institutionalized Corruption of the Biden /Harris Administration, in this separate instance the Open Border Policy of our Sovereign Southern Border, be not only tolerated, but sanctioned by the raising of local spending by local politicians to pay for these now visible and known effects of rampant, and out- of-control Illegal Immigration?
0% Yes, it is a kind thing to do, and a way that our county, our state can aid in this tremendous effort toward local federal foreign aid; and now, thankfully, in great abundance.
100% No, our Constitution Republic WILL NOT continue to exist, as our United States of America, if we do not control our sovereign borders, to protect our citizens, to keep them solvent and safe.
0% I only consider what is topical and popular since my friends, too, only care to do the same.
Great music is made in America for all the right reasons.

I happened upon an early recorded video of Iris Dement's "Our Town" from the early 1990's, recorded in 1992, a song that played a large part in the classic TV series "Northern Exposure's" swan song. That memorable last TV show signing off by this beautiful classic really stuck with me. In fact, from that exposure alone, I became familiar with this simple melody of the poignant loss of almost everything familiar and good. It is a powerful subject, if you care for this kind of thing ... I do, I really do. "Our Town" must be one of the ten greatest pure country classics ever penned, all to Iris Dement's credit.
As mentioned, this unique video of this classic lament found me as much as I found it. It is here, playing alongside Iris Dement and EmmyLou Harris singing background vocals, that I noticed Jerry Douglass, Dobro Master Extraordinaire, as a young man getting some exceptional exposure making his dobro twang its sweet mournful mood.
I have been a big fan of Jerry Douglas since he joined Union Station of the Alison Krauss fame. He did so much to round out their Bluegrass /Traditional Music /Country /Rock'n'Roll eclectic genre, and helped make them one the greatest bands of their generation. Alison Krauss has long promoted Jerry as 'the greatest living Dobro Player'.
He probably is, and I share this lasting video of an older Jerry Douglas playing his version of the Jimi Hendrix classic "Hey Joe" as further proof: Below.
I cannot end this piece without that classic video rendition of Iris Dement's "Our Town": Below.
An unexpected period of sudden transition swept through the nation's capital today after the White House announced President Joe Biden had to be put down after yet another incident in which he bit a baby.
The infamous unsolved murder of rapper Tupac Shakur on the streets of Las Vegas, once thought to be a hit by the Southside Crips, is now believed to be the work of none other than former President Donald J. Trump, who authorities believe acted alone.
What a guy! As more evidence continues to emerge regarding Biden's selling influence and favors to foreign governments for bribe money, The President has announced he will be selflessly donating the remainder of his bribe money to charity.
With the rumor mill still churning despite the Secret Service closing its investigation, President Joe Biden blamed the presence of cocaine in the West Wing of the White House on a black man who used to live there.
A retired professional football player whose life story became the basis for the Oscar-winning movie “The Blind Side,” says the white, wealthy family who took him in never actually adopted him, as the film suggests.
