Political Gumbo It’s been a while since I whipped up a batch of political gumbo. So, despite the warm weather, here are some assorted political items… all tossed into a pot and stewed… ...Last Saturday’s release of captured U.S. Army sergeant Bowe Bergdahl by his Taliban captors wasn’t a political event, per se, but it has sparked a political backlash. Obama opponents say the president broke the law by exchanging five captured Taliban prisoners for a disgruntled soldier who may have deserted his post. Others say that prisoner exchanges have been commonplace in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Regardless, one has to wonder why Obama would risk such heavy political fallout over the “rescue.” As many as eight U.S. soldiers may have been killed in the search and rescue efforts after Bergdahl left (or was taken from) his base in June 2009. There will be much debate

over this one… and there’s still a possibility that Bergdahl will face a court martial. This story is far from over… and may take a while to spin out… …November’s midterm elections are going to be interesting. Many political observers predict that the Republicans will gain the six seats they need to take control of the Senate. The unpopularity of Obamacare (and its incredibly clumsy rollout) will be a factor, as will the president’s low popularity overall. The Democrats’ other problem is constitutional mathematics. Because Senators are elected in six-year cycles, the seats up for grabs this year were last in contention back in 2008… when the Democrats were stronger than usual. GOP control of the House and Senate, combined with two “lame duck” years of the Obama presidency, could lead to gridlock, numerous presidential vetoes, and a flurry of “executive orders.” It could


get cray-cray…

“likability” factor. There’s no doubt that Hillary has the experience and skill set to be president. I’m just not sure that voters “like” her enough. I still think the Democratic nominee could be a female. But it could be Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. Warren is a no-nonsense populist who has shaken things up considerably since her Senate election…

…Looking ahead to the presidential race in 2016 isn’t quite as premature as it seems. There have already been some casualties. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie looks like he’s lost about 70 pounds… along with any hope of winning the Republican nomination. The “Bridgegate” scandal revealed him to be either personally vindictive or unable to control his vindictive underlings. …Here in Tennessee, Governor He used to be the toast of the Bill Haslam has predictably GOP. Now he’s just… toast… announced his campaign for reelection.

FIVE COMMON SITUATIONS WHERE AUTO TITLE LOAN SAVES THE DAY All of us will experience a bad moment, especially financial ones. Not every one of us are lucky enough to be spared from emergency cash situations, even the rich ones are also experiencing money problems. For whatever reasons cash shortfall exist, the natural instinct for people is to secure a loan to solve the problem. But not all banks and other financial assistance destinations can accommodate everybody. Lucky for those who were not entertained, as there is always an alternative such as auto title loans companies. Thus, thousands of people can be relieved of common financial troubles such as the following: Being cut off from usual services - regretfully, some people do forget to monitor their bills and when time comes that these are overdue and need to be paid to avoid being cut off

If you own a car, then you have something to exchange for so that you can get extra cash to pay for these overdue bills and accounts. Saving lives of family members and relatives - we all know that health is volatile and we do not know when it will temporarily deteriorate and require medication and hospitalization in the same manner that accidents cannot be predicted.

With that, you are able to add to pay for expenses related to these inevitable health and accident situations. Out of work and looking for next job - with the economy


having its unpredictable mood swings, one is not secured when it comes to their jobs. Thus, when you find yourself jobless at the moment, car title loan is one of the logical choices to secure money and tide things over while waiting for the next job. Why? This is because one can secure a loan for as short as a 15 days term to even 36 months installment payment. What is even more beneficial is you still get to use the car.

But how can one move on to the next job, to new places, status (from married to divorcee), house, and so on and so forth, if one lacks the necessary cash to adjust to a new environment or condition.

Is Feminism DEAD? Is Feminism Dead? Have Western women regressed? Is the feminist movement dead? Is any progress made slipping away? Have relationships slipped back in time to the traditional patriarchal definition? Are women too obsessed about physical beauty? Are both men and women neglecting personal growth? News stories with headlines akin to, "Major Pop Star Beaten By Major Boyfriend" or "Child Missing; Mother Found Murdered," leave little doubt that there's a long way to go before women are seen as equal. And that's just in the United States. Female genital mutilation (FGM) is practiced in 27 countries globally, meaning 90 percent of women in those countries suffer or die from ritualistic circumcising. At the time of this writing, a reported half-million women are missing in India. Stories of missing, abused, and dead women are seemingly endless. It's challenging to stifle my urge to provide statistics from the socalled evolved countries, such as America, where 25-35% of all

women will be abused by their domestic partners. It's a greater challenge to hold back the statistic that for every abuse reported, it is estimated ten times that actually happens. Statistics though, are not as important as is the human element. If (working from the statistics above), more than half of all women are abused in their respective life times, it figures into the equation that someone you know -a mother, daughter, sister, friend, maybe you perhaps, will be beaten or murdered in the name of "love." At much greater risk, is an adolescent in love. An adolescent in love feels emotions with an intensity that often leads to suicide when things go sideways. Suicide and Homicide are opposite sides and are the same emotion. Either action is preceded by uncontrolled impetuous emotion. And both have deadly outcomes. Men and women have battered each other since time immemorial. And cave men reported dragged women by their hair, but that

GRANTS PASS, Ore. (UPI) - An Oregon man who had been burned with hot oil ran into a 7Eleven in Grants Pass and used some Hawaiian Punch Slurpees to treat his burns and cool himself off. According to the Grants Pass Daily Courier, the man entered the store while being chased by two other people, one of them possibly armed with a bat. Store clerk Charlie Bentley kept the individuals who were

chasing the man out of the store so he could fill his shirt with Slurpee goodness without being disturbed. The man soothed his skin with the icy beverage before being taken to a Medford medical center. An investigation revealed that the chase likely began during a dispute between two neighbors that ended with two people being burned with hot oil. The other burn victim, a woman, did not require medical treatment.


KANSAS CITY, Miss. (UPI) - A US Airways flight from Los Angeles to Philadelphia was forced to make an emergency landing in Kansas City after a service dog started pooping in the aisle and the flight crew was unable to contain the mess. The passengers aboard US Airways Flight 598 could only sit back and watch while a big dog defecated in the aisle not once, but twice. After the dog went to the bathroom for the first time about an hour into the flight, the crew did

their best to deal with the mess but they were unable to contain the smell. “An hour later, it still smelled bad, and after they cleaned it all up, it pooped again,” Passenger Steve McCall told INSIDE EDITION. “A couple of people started dry-heaving, a couple of people were throwing up.” The flight had initially been delayed for two hours because of a fuel spill on the tarmac, so it’s quite possible that caused

the dog to get a little bit backed up. The dog’s owner did apologize. “She said, ‘Hey, so sorry, I want to get all your addresses so I can give you a Starbucks gift card,’” McCall said. ATLANTA, GA. - Everybody who is familiar with babies know they can be fussy. Heck, sometimes even downright ornery, but rarely is it necessary to grenade them. Unless you are a SWAT officer in Georgia. Alecia Phonesavanh said she had been staying with her sister-in-law in Habersham County after her family’s home burned down when a SWAT team burst into the home as part of a drug investigation. One of the officers tossed a stun grenade that Phonesavanh said landed in her 19-month-old son’s playpen and exploded on his pillow, right in his face, causing serious burns, cuts, and other injuries. Now, there have been a lot of stories in the news lately about the “militarization” of police in this country, but grenading a baby is a little extreme. “He’s only a baby,” Phonesavanh said, “He didn’t deserve any of this.” Police said they had a no-knock warrant to arrest a man at that address known to have drugs and weapons. The raid occurred at just before 3 a.m. “There was no clothes, no toys, nothing to

indicate that there was children present in the home,” Cornelia Police Chief Rick Darby said. “If there had been, then we’d have done something different.” However Phonesavanh said, “The cops threw that grenade in the door without looking first, and it landed right in the playpen.” Police did not say whether the toddler was being cooperative with police, but Chief Darby did say the officers involved in the raid felt badly about the boy’s injuries. So he’s got that going for him. The boy has been taken to a burn unit for treatment and placed in a medically induced coma. CEBU CITY, Philippines (UPI) - A zoo in the Philippines has started offering visitors the chance to receive a relaxing 15-minute massage from its four Burmese pythons that it currently has in captivity. The Cebu City Zoo’s pythons - Michelle, Walter, EJ and Daniel – are supposedly fed 10 or more chickens before giving out the massages so they won’t be tempted to snack on the guests. During the “therapeutic and calming” massages, zookeepers keep watch as the snakes slither back and forth across a bamboo bed. Once the snakes are put on, it’s virtually impossible to escape because they weigh about 550 pounds


combined. “I had to lie on my back on a bamboo daybed in the open air. I was briefed on what to do and what not to do during the massage,” volunteer Ian Maclean told the Daily Mail. “These instructions are crucial, as you can imagine. They tell you not to blow air on the snake, because this is like being pinched on the bum, apparently. You can’t shout for help as the snake can feel your vibrations and thinks you’re prey or a predator, depending on the environment.” MANCHESTER, England (UPI) Greater Manchester Police arrested a man who put on a pig mask, toy helmet and reflective jacket in order to perform “comical parodies” about the behavior of law enforcement officials. New Moston man Steven Peers was arrested on suspicion of impersonating a police officer after he put on the costume to call attention to how GMP officers conducted themselves during anti-fracking protests. The 46-year-old was arrested after being stopped by an officer outside a police station. “My reaction to being arrested was total disbelief. I was wearing a toy hat and a pig mask and was arrested for impersonating a police officer. It’s ridiculous,” Peers told the Manchester Evening News.

“If they want to take it to court they will be a laughingstock because there is no substance to it whatsoever.” The father-offour also had his “Officer 666” outfit confiscated. “I don’t think it’s antagonistic. It’s just a parody making fun of GMP,” Peers said. “I’ve dressed like this at Barton Moss, in front of Swinton police station and in front of the force HQ in Newton Heath. Other officers have laughed it off.” CARTERSVILLE, GA. - Officials say an 18-year-old drowned just hours after graduating high school when he was tied to a shopping cart and pushed into a lake as part of a game with friends. A Georgia Department of Natural Resources spokeswoman Melissa Cummings says the body was found early Sunday morning in about 30 feet of water and he was still tied to the cart. She says in the game Saturday night, participants sat in a shopping cart that was tied to a pole. Others pushed the cart to the end of the dock so that the person sitting in it would be flung into the water. Cummings says the cart was tied to the victim instead of a pole and it pulled him under

O PEN IN G T HI S WE EK Edge of Tomorrow The story unfolds in a near future in which a hive-like alien race, called Mimics, have hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, shredding great cities to rubble and leaving millions of human casualties in their wake. No army in the world can match the speed, brutality or seeming prescience of the weaponized Mimic fighters or their telepathic commanders. But now the world’s armies have joined forces for a last stand offensive against the alien horde, with no second chances.

It’s been five years since Hiccup and Toothless successfully united dragons and vikings on the island of Berk. While Astrid, Snoutlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island’s new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace. Now, Hiccup and Toothless must unite to stand up for what they believe while recognizing that

But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. Now they don’t have to just crack the case - they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them.

Maleficent PG A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land.

($12.07) for the session. 11996633 Four weeks after it entered the Billboard chart, 17-year-old Lesley Gore’s “It’s My Party” hit the number one spot. It was a song that was chosen for her by Quincy Jones, then a staff producer for Mercury Records, who had seen Leslie sing for the first time just a few weeks earlier.

11889966 Guglielmo Marconi was granted a patent for his electro-magnetic wave communication system, later to be called radio. 11994422 Capitol Records opens for business, becoming the first major record label based on the US West coast. The company had been established earlier in the year by singer Johnny Mercer and investor Buddy De Sylva as Liberty Records. It was Capitol’s manager, Glenn Wallichs, who invented the art of record promotion by sending free copies of new releases to disc jockeys. 11995544 With Big Joe Turner’s “Shake, Rattle and Roll” riding high on the Billboard R&B chart, Bill Haley And His Comets enter Decca Records’ New York studio to record the same number. Haley’s version will enter the Pop chart next August for an amazing 27 week run and rise to #7, becoming the first Rock and Roll tune to sell a million copies. 11995566 Gene Vincent’s “Be-Bop-A-Lula” is released in America where it will reach #5 and sell over a million copies. Although he never quite matched that success, his 1957 releases, “Lotta Lovin’” reached #13 and “Dance to the Bop” climbed to #23. Vincent died in 1971 at the age of 36 of a seizure brought on by a bleeding ulcer. 11995577 Sam Cooke records “You Send Me” at Radio Recorders Studio in Los Angeles. The song will rise to the top of the US chart next December and become the first of Cooke’s 29 Billboard Top 40 hits. The song reached #29 in the UK. 11995588 The L.P. “Johnny Mathis’ Greatest Hits” went to number 1 in the US. It stayed on the charts for 490 weeks, setting a longevity record that would not be broken until the 1980s by Pink Floyd’s, “Dark Side of the Moon”. 11995599 “The Battle Of New Orleans” by Johnny Horton hits the top of both the Country and Pop charts in the US, where it will stay for an amazing two months straight. The song was originally a poem written by high school teacher James Morriss in 1936, which he put to the music of an old fiddle tune known as “The Eighth Of January”. Horton’s version would become one of the largest selling records of the year and later won a Grammy Award.

Bob Zimmerman graduated from high school in Hibbing, Minnesota. Zimmerman was known as a greaser to classmates in the remote rural community because of his long sideburns and leather jacket. Soon, Zimmerman would be performing at coffee houses at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis and later in Greenwich Village in New York City. He would also change his name to Bob Dylan. 11996600 The Platters’ lead singer Tony Williams leaves the group to embark on a solo career. Williams sang lead on Platters classics such as “Only You”, “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes” and “The Great Pretender”, but was unable to crack the Top 40 on his own. Roy Orbison’s “Only the Lonely” was released in the US where it would go on to reach number two on the Billboard Hot 100. In the UK, it would top the chart next October. Bing Crosby was presented with a Platinum disc to commemorate his 200 millionth record sold. The sales figures were a combined total of 2,600 recorded singles and 125 albums. Crosby’s global lifetime sales on 179 labels in 28 countries totaled 400 million records. 11996611 Roy Orbison had his first US number 1 hit with “Running Scared”. Earlier, he had placed “Only the Lonely” and “Blue Angel” into the Top 10. Orbison had to be coaxed into the soaring vocal climax at the end of the song because he was being drowned out by the instrumental buildup. Roy and his songwriting partner Joe Melson would later say that they wrote the song in about five minutes. 11 996622 Ray Charles’ “I Can’t Stop Loving You” sat on top of the Billboard Pop chart, making believers out those who told him he would lose his fan base if he recorded Country and Western songs. The album it came from sold over a million copies, becoming the first Gold record for ABCParamount. After an unsuccessful audition for Decca Records, The Beatles perform for producer George Martin at EMI Records in London. Martin was later quoted as saying “They were pretty awful. I understand why other record companies turned them down,” but signed them to a contract the following month. John, Paul, George and Pete Best were each paid 7.10 pounds


Decca Records releases “Come On”, The Rolling Stones’ first single. It would go on to peak at #21 in the UK. That same night, the group makes their TV debut on the BBC’s Thank Your Lucky Stars. After the show, its producer is reported to have told Stones’ manager Andrew Loog Oldham to get rid of “that vile looking singer with the tire-tread lips.” 11996644 Ringo Starr was hospitalized after he collapsed during a photo session for the Saturday Evening Post. He was treated for tonsillitis and pharyngitis and rested for a couple of weeks. During his ten day absence, Jimmy Nicol sat in on drums for eight shows in Denmark, Holland, Hong Kong and Australia.

David Jones And The King Bees released their first record, “Liza Jane” in the UK. Jones later became David Bowie to avoid confusion with Davy Jones of The Monkees. The Dixie Cups became the first American group to top the Billboard chart in 1964 when “Chapel of Love” went to number one. Up until then, the year had been dominated by The Beatles and US solo performers. The song reached #22 in the UK. 11996677 David Bowie released his first album, which contained the single, “Love You ‘Til Tuesday”. Although the LP got positive reviews, neither it or the single sold well. The Doors’ “Light My Fire” is released. Two months later, it will be number one in the US. A 31-year-old singer born Arnold George Dorsey was the talk of the music industry when he reached the number one spot in the UK and number four in the US with “Release Me”. No one had paid much attention to him until his manager, Gordon Mills, changed his stage name to Englebert Humperdinck, the name of the Austrian composer who wrote Hansel and Gretel. Aretha Franklin scored her only solo, US #1 hit on the Billboard Pop chart with Otis Redding’s “Respect”. Redding reached #35 with it in 1965. Aretha’s rendition, on which she played piano, earned her two Grammy Awards in 1968 for Best Rhythm & Blues Recording and Best Rhythm & Blues Solo Vocal Performance, Female. She and George Michael would team up for a second number one in 1987 with “I Knew You Were Waiting For Me”. The Monkees won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series. 11996688 Simon And Garfunkel reached the top of the US charts with “Mrs. Robinson”, which

was featured in the soundtrack of the film The Graduate, starring Dustin Hoffman and Ann Bancroft. The song went on to win a Grammy Award for the Best Contemporary Pop Performance by a Vocal Duo or Group. 11996699 Rod Stewart, lead singer of the Jeff Beck Group, signs a solo recording contract with Mercury Records. 11997700 The Kinks’ Ray Davies flies 11,000 Km round trip to England from America to rerecord the words “cherry cola” in the song “Lola” after the BBC refuses to air the song with the original words, “CocaCola”. 11997711 Gladys Knight is the last musical guest to appear on the Ed Sullivan Show, which was canceled the next day after 23 years on the air. It was TV’s longest running variety show and was a springboard for nearly every major music act in the ‘60s. Sullivan was so angry about the cancellation that he refused to do a final show, although he would return for several TV specials and a 25th-anniversary show in 1973. Ed Sullivan died of esophageal cancer at age 73 on October 13th, 1974. James Taylor’s “You’ve Got A Friend” is released. Of the 14 US Top 40 hits he will achieve, this will be his only chart topper. A song called “Want Ads” hit the top of the Cashbox chart in the US. The tune had first been recorded for the Hot Wax label by the group Glass House, then by Freda Payne, but producers weren’t satisfied with either version and had a three piece

girl group called Honey Cone give it a try. The result was a smash and was followed by three more Top 30 hits for the Los Angeles based trio. Carole King’s album “Tapestry” is awarded a Gold record.
