Rush, Public Enemy, Heart among new
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees

Rolling Stone, by Andy Greene

Original Article

Posted By:FL_Absentee_Voter, 12/12/2012 1:31:22 PM

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has officially announced next year´s inductees: Rush, Public Enemy, Heart, Randy Newman, Donna Summer and Albert King will all join the class of 2013, with Summer, who passed away this May, and King, who died in 1992, earning the honor posthumously. Lou Adler and Quincy Jones will both receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award for non-performers. "It´s a terrific honor and we´ll show up smiling," Rush´s singer and bassist, Geddy Lee, tells Rolling Stone. "It made my mom happy, so that´s worth it."

Rush fans (even here at LDot) have been demanding this for years. Hope they´re happy, as this gimmick is so far beneath them - the Sex Pistols were right. And Public Enemy? How diverse, Jann.

I completely agree with OP´s comments.

So Rush is finally going to get inducted into the R&R HOF in 2013--well played Mayans.

Um. We DO realize this is the band Rush, right, and not Rush Limbaugh? Maybe we need to say it. =)

Although I did chuckle when I saw Rush, Public Enemy. He would love that.

If Geddy Lee´s Mom is happy, then so am I !

"I dont believe in the stars or the planets, or angels watching from above...but I believe there´s a ghost of a chance to find someone to love, and make it last"....GHOST OF A CHANCE--Best RUSH song ever!

Randy Newman? Are they kidding? This is why the RRHOF is such a joke. It`s as useless as the Nobel Prize an a Grammy Award.

Randy Newman?? And still Grand Funk Railroad is not allowed.

#7 - agreed! It´s like everyone getting a participation trophy for these awards and the HOF´s. How about inducting...ME. I´ve had to listen to a lot of worthless musicians to hit upon the good stuff in my 50+ years. I deserve to be recognized, also!

I agree with #6 about Rush.Ghost of a Chance is a great song. However, that fat broad from Heart can rot in hell for what she disparagingly said about my service in Vietnam, and I wont repeat her bull-oney about her boyfriend having to flee to Canada to avoid that "dirty war" because that would be giving credence to a stupid fat idiot!

I have yet to hear a Randy Newman rock song. Silly little novelty songs, sure, but no rock. There´s nothing rock about him except his head. Justin Bieber is more of a rocker than Randy Newman.

Maryland’s bathroom bill benefits few
transgenders, puts all girls at risk

Washington Times, by Emily Miller    Original Article
Posted By: FL_Absentee_Voter- 4/3/2014 4:00:11 PM     Post Reply
Maryland moms and dads will now have to be more vigilant when their children use public bathrooms. It will soon be legal for a man who simply says he identifies as a woman to use the ladies’ room. This serious risk for sexual assaults of women and little girls is all in the name of political correctness. And this is just the latest in a string of successes by the transgender lobby. (Snip) The most dangerous impact of this new law is that a man cannot be stopped from going into a women’s bathroom, locker room or pool changing room.

A former State Department arms expert who leaked classified information to a Fox News reporter was sentenced Wednesday to 13 months in prison after a pointed courtroom debate about the Obama administration’s aggressive pursuit of unauthorized disclosures of top-secret information. Stephen Jin-Woo Kim pleaded guilty in February to sharing classified information from an intelligence report on North Korea with reporter James Rosen, Fox’s chief Washington correspondent. (Snip) Under President Obama, the Justice Department has pursued more leak cases than all previous administrations combined.

Court Tosses California´s
Concealed Weapons Rules
Associated Press, by Paul Elias    Original Article
Posted By: FL_Absentee_Voter- 2/13/2014 3:26:33 PM     Post Reply
A divided federal appeals court has struck down California´s concealed weapons rules, saying they violate the Second Amendment right to bear arms. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Thursday that California is wrong to require applicants to show good cause to receive a permit to carry a concealed weapon. The court ruled that all law-abiding citizens are entitled to carry concealed weapons outside the home for self-defense purposes. The divided three-judge panel disagreed with two other federal appeals courts that have upheld permit rules similar to California´s.

Critics said Saturday that the latest problem to hit Maryland´s online health exchange — an incorrect help-line number that directed hundreds of callers to a Seattle-based pottery business — was another symptom of the poorly operating website. (snip) The calls to Sue Lunz´s pottery supply company in Seattle started in the fall, after Maryland´s site was repaired enough for people to begin navigating through it. As more people reached a page where a technical problem made it impossible to select a provider, they started calling the incorrect help-line number. Lunz said her business continued to receive calls Saturday.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship, better known as UFC, has been a huge hit with audiences across America -- and around the world. UFC is the largest Pay-Per-View event provider in the world, claims a global audience of over 1 billion and is broadcast in over 149 countries and territories, in 30 different languages. But, to date, UFC hasn’t been able to get a license in New York, home to Madison Square Garden, a.k.a. ‘the World’s Most Famous Arena’ and the scene of some of history’s greatest boxing matches -- as well as pro and amateur wrestling, and Muy Thai kickboxing.

Treasury to sell last GM shares from
auto bailout. How´d taxpayers fare?
Christian Science Monitor, by Mark Guarino    Original Article

The Treasury Department is finally getting out of the automotive business, five years after interceding to rescue the US industry from apparent annihilation at the onset of the Great Recession. On Thursday, it announced it sold 70.2 million shares of General Motors (GM) stock and intends to sell its remaining 31.1 million shares by Dec. 31. Once the final sale is complete, however, US taxpayers will have lost nearly $10 billion of the $49.5 billion the federal government used to prevent the auto giant from collapsing in 2008, Treasury officials say.

BAKER – There´s a new thermometer on the market. But it´s unlikely to fit under your tongue. The 134-foot landmark in Baker, billed as the world´s largest thermometer, has been put up for sale. The asking price: $1.75 million. The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday the price includes the now vacant gift shop at the base and 4 acres around it. Erected in the sweltering city in 1991, the thermometer with nearly 5,000 light bulbs was intended as beacon for motorists headed to and from Las Vegas on I-15.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

"He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview.

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
