Sunday, January 14th open thread: ‘Don’t Run Wild’

January 14, 2018

 open-threadHere is the open thread for Sunday, January 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 discussed 5 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 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.

  The Del Fuegos were a local Boston band who achieved a little bit of success in the 1980’s. I was not able to find any live videos of them back in the day so here they are performing “Don’t Run Wild” live at a much later–although undetermined–date.

    Human interest piece: Growing up as a child in the 50’s and 60’s we kids would buy a box of Smith Brothers or Ludens cough drops for 5 cents.This past week my 3 1/2 year old grandson, who is smarter than any two grownups put together, asked if I could buy him kid’s cough drops since my adult cough drops were too strong for him. Of course i happily replied, “lets go to the store now.” The EMT’s gave me oxygen after passing out when i saw the price for “Kid’s Coughdrops” 10 coughdrops for $3.99. I mean $4.00 for a loaf of bread or $5.00 for a bag of chips is one thing but $3.99 for 10 cough drops? Take me now Lord!!!!!

      haha. Isn’t that something! Just shows how successful the ‘evil creepies’ have been gobbling up people’s money for less! I’ve noticed prices go up, while quality and amount go down. Plus the FDA approves things, like “Rapeseed” being used in peanut butter, cookies, ‘granola’, where in Europe they don’t even allow it in their sheep food, it causes ‘brain abnormalities’ ~ eats the brain!! Canada paid people in Govt positions millions to let it slide, by renaming it ‘Canola oil’. Also used effectively in weed killer:
      If you check the ingredients of those cough drops you’ll see more in them then when you were a kid. Plus most of the soy, corn oil etc today is GMO, which might be in them.
      Tomatoes are expensive and they’re not even ‘real’. I brought a tomato from a vender and was reminded what a real tomato tasted like and the ‘feel’ of it, much different from store’s very red, firmer, not as juicy ones.
      I see that there’s a site to ‘make your own’ which might be fun for you two to do together!
      Funny that you think he knows ‘so smart!’! haha
      Reminds me of the saying, “I’ve taught you all I know, and still you know ‘nothing’!”
      Thanks for the story!

        Yes, when I get the generic decongestant, I have to sign and show my license just to buy 12 of them. Sickos in high places. They’re the ones ‘selling the pharm drugs PLUS the CIA heroine etc’

    Well, a bit more mellow selection from you today Steve!
    This song was coming to mind this morning, regarding ‘wake up’
    “Use your mentality, wake to reality.”
    In this song thought he finds that Love trumps reasoning … or in his case fuel mix with ‘lust!’
    Emotions left unchecked leads to problems.

    Decided to use a memorable voice!

      The definitive version is by Frank Sinatra followed by the Four Seasons version.

        Yes, I know Sinatra had a big hit w/ it, and I remember liking the 4 Seasons version too. Here’s Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons ’66

    One that I found while looking for Mel.
    Notice the stark “difference” from today. Granted we all have a ‘sin nature’ but some just allow it to ‘flourish’ more without ‘proper demeanor or restraints’ than others of quality and morality. Substance of Values that have been stripped away by the ‘pervs, pedos, creeps’ of satanist & luciferians in positions of indoctrination, entertainment, & leadership in Govt., politics, Corporations & Orgs. 💩👎

      Here is something for this time of year. Yes many of the older movies are more interesting. There isn’t all in your face sexuality. Also many of the singers sound better.

        This song came under fire this year because of the “rape culture” and the #MeToo movement.

        This is the historical context for this song which the left fails to understand. Here are two adult couples in a romantic relationship. In one the male is the lead and in the other the female is the lead. The left is hell bent on destroying our heritage. The left would be happier if the couples were lgbt or whatever.

        I think the real name for the “left” is scum and demonic. They bastardize words to mean the opposite of what their real meaning is. If things go as planned many of these top ‘sicko leaders’ are being rounded up and stripped of their power and control. That something worth praying for! This happens time and time again in history. The evil get so bad that God steps in and shuts it down (Sodom). One fine day it’ll be ‘removed permanently, meanwhile there are people who are empowered to take down the evil rulers and leaders of corruption. Let’s see how many people ‘disappear’ who are bottlenecking the Purging and Flushing out of infestation of this society!.
        Yes, better singing voices too!

        While Baby It’s Cold Outside offends thise of the Me Poo movement we are expected to swallow the ever increasing number of movies, TV shows and commercials featuring in our face miscegenation. I wonder how the male and female negroes feel about whitey taking their bruthas and sistas on the big and small screens….

      My son played last night at the Beacon Theater in Manhatten’s upper west side. He’s a classicaly trained jazz musician with two master degrees in music performance, teaches music to special ed and autistic students, through the years toured and played on five continents with his seven piece ska band and last night at the Beacon performed their original recordings rearranged for and with a full orchestra. What a night. It sure beats the hell out of what passes for music today where rappers with a working vocabulary of a hundred words or less earn in only a couple of years earn the kind of money acts like the Beatles had to write and perform and record hundreds of beautiful pop music songs for years to earn that same money. The world is indeed turned upside down.

        Neat Peter! Yes, CLASS IS CLASS and slum is slum. Big difference. I like the orchestras, big band music. Good for your son for using his ‘talent’ for productively! and committing himself to quality and helping others. A healthy pride for you to have and ‘thankfulness’ I’m sure! 😊
        I wonder if any put it on utube ~ be neat to hear and see!

    Also wanted to note: Donald Trump Denies ‘Shi_hole’ Comment: ‘This Was Not the Language Used’ The ‘demon-crafts’ lie about everything, but its usually a ‘psychological projection of their inner selves ~ very telling. Plus considering the ‘life styles’ they promote … apropos.
    Evil and wicked depraved people do produce such things.

      Trump is denying this and Durbin is the only one who heard it and yet the media is running as if it was true. I have a conspiracy theory about this: I think the Dems thought Trump was close to a deal on DACA and they are trying to derail it so they can use it as a political issue.

        Yeah, ANIT-AMERICAN TRAITORS is what they really are, scum. Their ‘mental-Illness’ is getting worse. They need to be “plucked” out of society before they cause more harm.

  5. January 14, 2018 10:14 pm is an interesting development.
    “… President Trump’s lawyers have filed a motion with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia arguing that Assange’s publication of the DNC and John Podesta e-mails was protected by the First Amendment even if the e-mails were stolen… it recognizes WikiLeaks as a valid media organization protected by the First Amendment.

    Hey Zip,
    You can catch the band on you tube: Streetlight Manufesto. My son is the bass player hidden in the back on the right. They are playing two more dates with a full orchestra in LA later this month. I’ll announce when the recordings are available on You Tube.

      I was listening to “Reel Big Fish” radio on Pandora a while back and they played some Streetlight Manifesto. A very talented band for sure!
