Will the “Occupy” movement lose its voice before it has a chance to say anything real? The world is watching, but the message is undefined. It may be a good chance to say something, make a real statement, before the national media outlets lose interest. Okay, you’re here, you’re upset…now what?
So far, at least as far as the Nashville group goes, they have primarily drawn attention to curfew regulations at a public park. However, this in itself truly is a problem in our society and very representative of larger issues at hand. The few in power let that power go to their heads and want to regulate and control everything. So people can’t set foot on public property between certain hours? Okay, how about the people of Tennessee decide that they don’t want to pay state sales tax between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.? It’s just inconvenient for the state’s fine late-night businesses to “babysit” all of those tax dollars during those hours. That should fly.
I do not encourage people to spend much of their time complaining because something is not fair, but neither do I encourage people to get a government permit for every move they want to make. Live your life as if you are free. Understand you don’t need permission from the government to do anything. They can arrest 30 people, but when millions of Americans live that way, that’s how change will happen.
The boy and I got the opportunity to meet Gnash last month; he’s just another fat cat hanging out at the bank…
The Bracken’s are excited about another Predators season. But Jr. posed the question to Gnash: “Why couldn’t the Preds manage to keep Mr. Joel Ward on board? After all, he was the most productive offensive player for the Nashville squad in its playoff run last year, its first trip to the second round.”
But Gnash was left speechless; his only reply was to bang a drum and give us a high five, makin’ noise without really saying anything.
So, we’re pumped for hockey season; do you know how I got pumped up for Monday Night Football? Hank Jr.! His rowdy rendition became synonymous with football over the past 20-plus years.
So his single comment that mentioned Obama and Hitler in the same sentence that really was not extremely offensive nor clear shocked people regarding Jr.’s politics? What idiots never picked up on the fact that Hank Jr. had some views a little out of the mainstream? The great man who sings “If the South would’ve won we’d have it made…I’d put Hank Williams’ picture on the 100 dollar bill,” “Bocephus for President,” “If Heaven ain’t a lot like Dixie, I’d just as soon stay home; If they don’t have a Grand Ole Opry, like they do in Tennessee, just send me to hell or to New York City, it would be about the same to me,” “I still love to get drunk and hear county sounds” and “Nek nek nek neked women and beer,” and who’d “Love to spit some beechnut in that dude’s eyes and shoot him with my old 45” has truly let down the American people with his single recent slip in tact and judgment.
So henceforth, at three minutes ‘til kickoff every Monday night, your Captain will don a cowboy hat and sunglasses, get a little rowdy and ask myself if I’m ready for some football.
