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.

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
from pedophiles
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

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 say wrong number is latest failure

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.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
