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

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 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.

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job.

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws.

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic.
