I have really been remiss at making a reply to comments on my blog space. When I post a new Battle of the Bands, I intentionally don’t reply to comments, because I’m a blabber mouth, and I really don’t want to tip my hand regarding my favorite, before you all have a chance to vote. But, on some of my other thought provoking posts (Ha!) I have had replies formed in my mind, but life keeps me from making a timely comment.
Anyway…I want to use this post to reply to some things from the last post. Did that make sense? Probably not, but then ‘you know me’.
FIRST, to Alex and D.G. regarding the Battle of the Bands and any kind of list or links. I’m delighted that so many of you have decided to join in and post your own ‘Battles’. I’ve enjoyed reading them and voted at your spaces. This was not set up to be a blog hop and there never was any kind of linky list. Stephen T. McCarthy, Arlee Bird and I are hosting a contest (see the guidelines at the end of each of our BOTB posts), I haven’t linked to anyone outside of the contest because I didn’t want to cause any confusion or hurt feelings at the contest end with the possible winners. BUT, each of us has invited those of you who want to participate to leave a comment that
warns tells everyone that you have also posted a Battle. I would
suggest the same for the results, especially since some of you have posted your
results on days other than the ones we have chosen.
I really have no intention to exclude anyone, just trying to keep it fair for those who have participated from the beginning and are going for the prize. Having said all of that I do hope those of you who have posted in the past, as well as anyone new who wants to, will leave a comment and display you musical knowledge and talents by hosting your very own Battle of the Bands. It might be a good idea to leave a comment at all three sites, so the word really gets around.
SECOND, for anyone who hasn’t gone over to Monkey Throw Dart and read the post titled ‘Operation Syria: Rescuing the Petrodollar’ of September 4, 2013, and viewed the video ‘The Petrodollar Explained’, do yourself a favor and go right now. Well, finish reading my post here first, but then hurry over.
I think this is an excellent explanation of why the US is so anxious to be involved in Middle Eastern
Wars Conflicts. I was a tad
disappointed that the video ended with talk of revolution. It seems that’s what
some people will simply zero in on and not the real ‘meat’ of the information.
To Disc Connected and Arlee, I would say personally, I don’t believe there will be revolution in the US. Not when the masses have been so effectively bought off with a handful of food stamps, cell phones, and shortly, the long awaited illustrious universal health care (can you her me laughing). Most of the folks are happy as clams, buried in the sand. After all, the conditioning has been going on for a long time, and it isn’t about to stop any time soon. At one time people were promised a chicken in every pot, today they are getting pot in every chicken. What could be better than that? Most will gladly turn over their guns when the time comes, and vote to save the world from some global crisis by banning together into that infamous One World Government. All you really need to do, is sit back and ‘wait for it’… or not. The choice may still be yours.
