I've posted this song in the Music section but I wanted to post it here and get your opinon on my thoughts.

By the way Patti Smyth sings this song so passionately makes me wonder if she was a victim of child sexual abuse.
What are your thoughts.
I definitely tear up every time I hear this song.

I've posted this video of The Hooters LIve featuring Patty Smyth before :

And I've got to wonder if she was a victim of sexual abuse by the way she so passionately sings.
I tear up every time I hear this song thinking of what she might've gone through.

What are your thoughts?

When I got home from my 2nd tour in Vietnam, my younger brother was heavily involved

in the anti war protests, we got into a heated discussion about the morals of the war, he went on and on about US war crimes and at that point I'd had enough of his platitudes and asked him that as a Marine who had served twice in Vietnam if I was the enemy, he came back with the most profound answer I've ever heard, he said, and I quote, "No brother, you're not the enemy, you're a victim".

That threw me and I really had no answer to him, unfortunately, he was killed by a drunk driver in 1980 and I truly miss his wisdom to this day.

Just reflecting on my life here while I await for my agent to line up a load for me.

Everyone, enjoy the rest of the week.
Peace out

Pro-Palestinian protestors attempt to seize buildings at Penn, Chicago universities

May 18 (UPI) -- Police in Philadelphia and Chicago ended attempts by pro-Palestinian protesters to take over buildings at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Chicago Friday.

Protestors gathered around 8 p.m. Friday in the University City area of West Philadelphia and entered Penn's Fisher-Bennett Hall at Walnut and 34th streets local media reported.

Penn Gaza Solidarity members said they intended to occupy the university building before police arrived.

University police and Philadelphia Police stopped the attempted takeover and arrested several protesters, some of whom fought with police.


Glad the police were able to stop this fucking nonsense in its tracks.
I hope those that fought and assaulted the cops are tried, found guilty and sentenced to the max term possible and with a felony on their record, good luck finding work.

They're FA and now they're about to FO.

Don't know if this is where I would post this, but I thought this was awesome!!!!


What I thought was just humanitarian was that she wasn't scared at all and she didn't harm the Gopher Snake at all, she released it back into the wild where it belonged.

Mother live.

Here's another movie called Rock Star with the song We All Die Young.

Despite some beliefs, Mark Wahlberg did not sing any of the songs in this movie,
We All Die Young was sung by Mike Matijevic who was a member for the band Steelheart, but still, it's a pretty good movie with some great rock songs.

In as much as I'm on my 34 hour restart, I have plenty of time to start some more threads, so, that being said,

anyone who ever watched this movie will recognize this song:
