The real story about Woodstock both Hollywood and what the aging hippies in our culture have forgotten all about.

Neil Young, who appeared with the newly formed Crosby, Stills & Nash, once said “Woodstock was a bullsh-t gig. A piece of sh-t. We played f-ckin’ awful.” The Grateful Dead received electrical shocks during their rainy set; guitarist Bob Weir has spoken of trying to live it down, while drummer Mickey Hart claimed it was “the worst we ever played.” Creedence Clearwater Revival followed the Dead after midnight. John Fogerty looked out from the stage to see something “like a painting of a Dante scene, just bodies from hell, all intertwined and asleep, covered with mud.” Jefferson Airplane’s Grace Slick succinctly described Woodstock as “a bunch of stupid slobs in the mud.”

Townshend’s assessment was, if anything, more devastating: “All these hippies wandering about thinking the world was going to be different from that day on. As a cynical English –ssh-le, I walked through it all and felt like spitting on the lot of them, trying to make them realize that nothing had changed and nothing was going to change. Not only that, what they thought was an alternative society was basically a field full of six-foot-deep mud laced with LSD. If that was the world they wanted to live in, then f— the lot of them.”

…Joni Mitchell may have dreamed she saw bomber death planes turning into butterflies above our nation, but she wasn’t at Woodstock. She was holed up in a New York City hotel room, waiting to appear on “The Dick Cavett Show.”

As usual when it comes to the “Flower Power” Sixties and the Seventies, it’s all bullshit. George Harrison was absolutely right.

So how’s that impending recession mantra working out for ya, Democrats and media? The actual economy begs to differ.

Annnnnnd the hits just keep on coming for the “Slo’ Joe” Biden campaign. Oh yeah, this is a strategy sure to boost the confidence of whatever supporters he truly has. The guy is a trainwreck, a doddering old political hack who was never presidential material. Oh, he can yuck and shuck his way through a harmless and ineffectual second-tier gig like VP, but one listen to him try and articulate anything substantive and it’s clear he’s as dumb as a bag of rocks. And the mainstream media, being nothing more than Democratic operatives, are starting to sing like canaries. Mark my words: “Slo’ Joe” is toast.

…and speaking of Democrats running for President, Elizabeth “Fauxcahauntus” Warren can have her “hundreds” in Franconia, NH, I’ll take the more than 10,000 that showed up for Donald Trump just a couple of hours south in Manchester.

It’s early, I know, but I don’t think I’m going out on a limb here when I say there is a YUUUUGE undercurrent of Trump support and supporters out there that the mainstream media and the pollsters will never be able to measure. After all, we Trump supporters have been demonized by the mainstream media (and, in some cases, supposed “friends”) as racists, xenophobes, and ignorant Nazis for so long we’re just sick of it and can’t wait for our chance to crawl over broken glass if need be to show y’all what a bunch of ignorant and stupid elites you are. A word to all of you libs: you didn’t learn your lesson in 2016, and you’re in for a rude awakening come 2020.

…and it’s tweets like this that make me love my President all the more. He calls things as he sees it:

Rep. Tlaib wrote a letter to Israeli officials desperately wanting to visit her grandmother. Permission was quickly granted, whereupon Tlaib obnoxiously turned the approval down, a complete setup. The only real winner here is Tlaib’s grandmother. She doesn’t have to see her now!

Totally unfiltered, totally what a lot of other people are thinking but are afraid to say it. Because, you know, we’re all racists, right? What the mainstream media won’t tell you is the hatred of rabid anti-Semites like Tlaid, Ilhan Omar, and AOC is being propped up by the most reprehensible of people.

Heard the first commercial today on southern RI / southeast CT classical music WCRI about “the coming holidays”. Last I checked the calendar said August 16. August 16. Heck, there’s already plenty of Halloween out there, and our local Fry’s is chock full of it. Not to mention the fact that Sam Adams Octoberfest is already being sold around here when the temps are over 110. It’s just madness.

…but it’s around this time of year that my musical tastes start turning towards the music of Gordon Lightfoot, one of my all-time faves. “Seven Island Suite” is just one of his great songs I never get tired of. It was also one of my brother Mark’s favorite Gord tunes, which makes it all that much more special.

Love the fact that the mainstream media is ridiculing President Trump’s offer to buy Greenland as some example of him losing his mind, neglecting (of course) that none other than Harry Truman offered to do the same thing. Everything you hear from the mainstream media these days is nothing but fake news, their hatred of Trump is so all-consuming.
