I never knew how he could sing that song in public. That must have been a soul wrenching task.

There could never be anything worse than losing a child. Clapton turned his grief into "Tears in Heaven," but don´t you know he´d give anything to trade that great song for having his son back again. The tears weren´t only his. God bless Eric, the father.

Re #3: "I never knew how he could sing that song in public."

Eric sang that most personal song on his acoustic "Unplugged" album. He could sing it live for the same reason that Elton John sang his and Bernie Taupin´s "Candle in the Wind" (reworked for Diana) in her funeral service: because he is a professional. That doesn´t make it any easier. But a pro performs. Eric and Elton are among music´s ultimate professionals.

Clapton is a very talented man. It is a miracle that he´s still alive after abusing drugs, alcohol and living through the loss of his child.

I think he can play that song because it´s cathartic. For a musician, working your problems out through your craft can be tremendously satisfying and help to heal wounds. I´m glad he has this outlet, just as I´m glad those of us who aren´t musicians have music of others to help us through our struggles.

I wanna see this doc.

Congressional Seat by Counting Citizens
Breitbart California, by Chriss W. Street    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 1/17/2018 4:18:16     Post Reply
Democrats fear the Trump administration’s re-reinstatement of citizenship questions on the 2020 U.S. Census will cost California a Congressional seat and billions in funding.The number of U.S. House of Representative seats was fixed by law in 1911 at 435. The “enumeration” requires at that each state have at least one Representative, and the other Representatives are allocated according to population as determined by the U.S. Census every ten years. Based on the 2010 Census data, California received the most, at 53.But Politico reports that could change with the Department of Justice sending a letter on December 12 to the Census

Democrats are threatening to hold national security hostage, potentially costing the economy billions and forcing hundreds of thousands of federal government employees to go without pay in exchange for securing legal protections for 800,000 illegal immigrants.Congress has three days to strike a deal to keep the government funded through October. If members fail to come to an agreement by Jan. 19, all “non-essential” government employees and active U.S. Military personnel will be working with out pay (including troops currently deployed). Funding for agencies like federal museums or national parks will also be cut off.Congressional Democrats are apparently content with allowing

Why Leftists Hate Masculinity
American Thinker, by Salvatore DeGennaro    Original Article

An ongoing mantra of the left is that everyone is a victim, with a singular carve-out for white men. A large group of the female population has embraced this chant. While there may be a number of grievances put forth by this movement, there also comes a theme that is particularly dangerous: the feminist attack on masculinity. This is derived not only from feminists; it comes from the left in general. There has emerged a war on masculinity. Why? Because masculine men are harder to control under tyrannical socialism. The modern beta male, on the other hand, craves socialism. This

Are Mothers Happier Being Homemakers
Or Working Full-Time?

Despite the onslaught of propaganda telling young girls otherwise, a recent research paper distilling data from over 30 European countries concluded that mothers find homemaking preferable to working full-time. Doc. PhDr. Dana Hamplová, Ph.D., a senior scientist at the Institute of Sociology, ASCR, and a current representative of the Czech Republic in the International Social Science Program, authored the paper. Addressing Betty Friedan´s narrative in the book The Feminine Mystique, which claims that women are happiest and most fulfilled at work, Hamplová "explores the link between employment and subjective well-being among mothers with children under 3 years of age," reads

President Trump’s latest obloquy—calling a number of countries “s**tholes” and asking why we are expected to accept their immigrants—is offensive for all the reasons you’ve probably heard: it’s insulting, racially divisive, callous, and so on. The United States has welcomed immigrants from various “s**thole” countries for much of its history. Those schleppers worked, sweated, and saved, started businesses, paid taxes, and asked God to bless America.If only that was all there was to it. As is so often case in this president’s administration, noxious wording is distracting from a serious public-policy debate. The truth is that an “hourglass,” low-mobility, big-government

While Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) says he is “focused” and working “full time” for illegal aliens, black Americans in his state of Illinois remain excessively unemployed, far above the national average.On Monday, as Breitbart News reported, Durbin admitted that he is working around the clock, not for his underrepresented constituents in Illinois, but rather illegal aliens who have been shielded from deportation by a President Obama-created amnesty program.“I’m focused on one thing — not that meeting — but on making sure that those who are being protected by DACA and eligible for the DREAM Act have a future in America,”

President Trump is in excellent health, his White House doctor said Tuesday. "He has incredible cardiac fitness at this point in his life," said Dr. Ronny Jackson, who conducted the routine physical examination. Jackson said the exam took four hours and included a dozen other medical personnel for a series of tests. The doctor said Trump´s lifelong abstinence of alcohol and tobacco has led to his excellent health. And Jackson also said Trump, 71, simply "has incredibly good genes. It´s just the way God made him." Jackson said Trump asked to take a cognitive exam during the session. The doctor

Donald Trump opened himself to the White House press corps for the first time after Democratic lawmakers leaked his controversial “s***hole” comments to the media last week, and delivered yet another exchange with reporters in the process. Trump held a brief avail with the press in the Oval Office Tuesday afternoon while meeting with President Nursultan Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan. Trump touted economic achievement over the last couple months of his administration, noting the historically low black unemployment numbers and the return of manufacturing jobs. After the comments, Trump thanked the press for being there. As staffers asked the press to

NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders.

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values.

Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real

Why would my 22-year-old brother be calling so early on a Saturday morning? I’d ignored the first call. But the second time the phone rang, I picked it up. He was panicking, his voice trembling uncharacteristically: He’d just received the emergency alert warning of a ballistic missile that was heading for Hawaii, where I’m from, and where he and my family still live. “THIS IS NOT A DRILL,” the alert read. My brother was alone, and had no idea what to do or where to go. And he wouldn’t have had much time to figure out a game plan—some estimates
