Sunday, February 14th open thread: ‘I am the Highway’

February 14, 2016

 open-thread Here is the open thread for Sunday, February 14th. Please feel free to post links to interesting articles and to discuss whatever issues arise during the course of the day. Nothing is off-topic here.

   Last week we covered 14 stories, did you miss any of them? If so there is an easy way to make sure it does not happen again. I understand that all of you are busy and cannot always find the time to check the blog for updates so why not subscribe to America’s Watchtower and receive email updates whenever I write a new post? That is the easiest way to follow the blog to ensure you never miss another post.

  In addition to subscribing you can also follow America’s Watchtower on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the links on the right. But you will get more than that for I often post links to articles I probably will not be writing about so it is a great way to keep up with what is happening.

  The Twitter widget in the sidebar is fully interactive. This widget updates my tweets in real time and allows you to respond to or retweet my tweets right from the blog. It also allows you to tweet me right from America’s Watchtower. How cool is that! If you do not have a Twitter account what better reason do you need to sign up for one!

  Here is Audioslave performing “I am the Highway” live. On the surface the song seems to be about running away from either an ex-girlfriend or bad people but some of the lyrics in this song make me think there is more to it. The opening line about “pearls and swine” seems to be a reference to Matthew 7:6. I have an interpretation of many of these lyrics but I would like to hear your interpretation before I divulge mine.

      Thanks for sharing SDL! Audioslave was Chris Cornell’s next project after Soundgarden broke up. Soundgarden had modest success as an alt-rock band in the early ’90’s. You might remember “Black Hole Sun.”

    Was the death of Justice Scalia a bold move taken by the evils that be?

        Yup Lou, I did think of you when posting this! The Hoodwinked society! The older we get it seems more light is being shown on what’s really going on and those behind it!
        He lives in Frisco, CO, looks like they have some good skiing snow – that’s skiing country. I wonder if he wears that outfit on the hill!

        Haha, don’t know, Zip, but if he wore the hat he would be “styling”! He does keep your attention, he has the gestures that keep you watching him, so you also listen….I am sure there is a method to his “madness”!

        Has anyone heard from Laura? I have not seen her posting in weeks.

      The first video was very good Zip and the third one was interesting. At this point it doesn’t even matter if Obama gets to appoint the nominee to SCOTUS or not because Bernie, Hillary, and Donald will likely all nominate the same type of nominee. After Breitbart died I saw the video of the CIA heart attack gun, this is a reality!

        I forgot to mention that the sad part is that the people are so easily distracted!

        Isn’t today Washingtons Birthday or rather Presidents Day? Are you off work or maybe just Fed, State and Local? My birthday used to be on Washingtons birthday the 22nd, wonder if I am supposed to move mine to the 15th now, as well? All for convenience, I guess!

        I like that song, but this caught my attention because it symbolized more or real staying Love rather than the ‘here today gone tomorrow’ feeling kind.
