The slow return of B&R

Bob Parks has slowly started bringing back his internet show "Black & Right", and I love this. He explains how Obama indoctrinated the kids to force their "uneducated" parents to vote for Obama

way too coincidental playlist of the day

Was playing "Rock Band 2" tonight and this "local artist" playlist, in the Chicago setting of the game, reminded me WAY too much of the Great Healthcare Debate coming to ahead today

"Hello There" - Cheap Trick
"Today" Smashing Pumpkins
"Eye of the Tiger" - Survivor
"Give It All" - Rise Against
"Down With The Sickness" - Disturbed

if that doesn't scream "healthcare showdown", don't know much else does

trailer of the day

the silver armor seen briefly makes me think of the Silver Centurian armor

Hypocrite of the day

Apparently Microsoft has seen fit to become a corporate fascist with regard to a person's gamertag..

and yet they lift the band on sexual language..

(a shot from my phone)

Sounds to me like they're not complete fans of the 1st amendment

Hypocrisy anyone?

bogus lawsuit of the day

I'd Rather...

...Dan didn't SAY things like this

Progress in Iraq

A very good sign

Just who WAS it though that wanted Iraq to be a more free and stable society?

Wasn't Obama...

side note:

I still remember how the left came up with the feeble arguments on WMDs. What they fail to realize is this..

The genius of Sarah Palin

Even Jon Stewart can appreciate it

Amazing gaming feat of the day

Apparently a Canadian blind gamer spent the past 2 years conquering the classic Nintendo 64 game "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time" (with of coarse some help from some dedicated online friends)

Very cool. Congrats to him!

Part of what Bob Parks and his son, Cory were up to and involved with in February when they drove to North Carolina

and this is really raising eye brows on the left...


No, not a person..a radio station

this was one of my favorite radio stations around. apparently, today, it now ceases to exist. For MY money, it had one of the most gorgeous, smoothest DJs around

here is one of her blog entries from 2009

Top Ten Life Lessons Learned the Hard Way!

"I probably wouldn’t have listened…but still, no one took the time to tell me when I was heading into High School some of the things I have told my daughter …and I wish, in hindsight, I could have been told.

My daughter says, “I know, I know Mom…you’ve said these things since grade school”…she especially remembers me saying to her in Kindergarten how some kids will be a reflection of themselves…and I know kids in High School can be just as mean…but maybe not as mean as Middle School….I don’t know…we shall see. I hope parents realize all their teens really go through.

So, I can only hope…she might still listen and apply these life-lessons the best she can… even though I’ve tried to back off from her rolling eyes…I still find myself saying the following in one way or another… because, I hope some day…my daughter will be glad I reminded her of these things. “Humor me”…I say, and she says…ok Mom….whatever…then we laugh…but maybe just maybe she listens and it will help her in life.

Teenagers are so fickle…sometimes I can’t get her off my lap and other times she wants me to stay away from her…but I hug her anyway. How embarrassing can a mom be? How did I ever get to be so ….well…you know… annoying? (smile)…it’s so fun.

Here’s my top ten list of life lessons: For my teenager as well as the rest of us.

1) Be yourself, regardless of what others think…be kind, regardless how others act…let it be a reflection on them…not you.

2) Find something humorous in situations that frustrate you…laugh with yourself.

2) Act …”as if”…and you will create what you want. ie: “act”… confident ! (Yes…good posture helps you ”act” and look more confident even when you’re scared or nervous. Sometimes we need to ‘fake it til’ we make it’….)

3) Follow your gut-level intuition but lead your heart. Stay trustworthy…it takes a lot to earn trust back.

4) Just say No …but be cool about it…say it confidently…say it’s not your thing, or you’re not ready yet… NO is actually an easy word to say…even if they try to make you say yes…say its ok to NOT say…ok. You’ll thank yourself the next day and have no worries….NO =no worries later.

5) You are who you choose to continually hang out with. People can be flowers in your garden or weeds…sometimes you have to pull the weeds to let your garden of life grow beautiful. Water with love.

6) Some people just need DRAMA in their life to feel alive. (go ahead and feel alive) but, know that one may be ignored when one over-acts…or over reacts.

7) Believe in doing your best…and remember every day is a new day.

8) If you need to talk…find a trustworthy older person who will really listen without judgment…or a therapist or pastor. Sometimes parents just want to fix the problem for you so if you need to talk with another mentor… it’s a wise thing to do. Remember, most friends can rarely keep things to themselves….its just too tempting…so be careful with your personal information.

9) You will face adversities…strength comes from how well you handle them. Ignoring problems make the problems bigger. When you make a mistake… be proactive…admit it…the truth really does set you free. (People who deny or lie about things cause a lot of misery for themselves and others…and they will end up not being respected…especially self-respected.)

10) Consequences are just that…so, to avoid consequences …never get yourself into any situation where the consequences will make you lose the respect of others or your self-respect. Keep your dignity in tact regardless of your emotions!

OK…so there they are… my top ten life-lessons I’m sharing with my daughter before she goes into High School in a few weeks….lessons I’ve learned the hard way and I wish someone would have shared them with me when I was just 14.

I know there are many more life lessons we’ve all learned from…maybe some humorous ones we can add to this list…feel free to add your comment…so we can all learn from each other. And, yes…I will share it with my daughter"

unfortunately this reminds me of another jazz station that tanked several years ago, 101.9 The City

I haven't the foggiest if 94.7 ever played this, but knowing them like I do, this sounds like something they might've played

in their farewell statement on their website, they say

As we all know, the one thing we can count on in life is change. It’s in that spirit that I must tell you that the format on 94.7 KSSJ is going to change Wednesday, March 3rd at 12:00 pm. Playing Smooth Jazz favorites is one side of who we are – it’s the side you hear. The other side is the reality that operating a radio station is a business – that’s the side we see.

In the past few years, the business side of KSSJ has become increasingly difficult. There are many reasons for it, but the unfortunate fact is that the audience for the station can no longer sustain the business of the station. In that way, we’re no different from a retail business that doesn’t have enough customers to keep the doors open.

One of the best parts of this adventure has been the Smooth Jazz Concert Series at the Radisson Hotel. Fortunately, many of these shows will continue. If you’d like more information on the concert series, please click on this link: www.huskyshows.com .

94.7 KSSJ leaves a legacy of sound. We’ve considered it an honor and a pleasure to have entertained you over the years. Your support has been appreciated more than you’ll ever know. If you wish to leave a comment, please use the following link: click here to send us your comments.

Stay smooth Sacramento…

Another killer column from Bob

This time entitled..

The Youth War On US

by Bob Parks

There was an old English saying, “A mayde schuld be seen, but not herd” which has since morphed into ‘Children should be seen and not heard’. The latter was the world I grew up in, and as one finds as one grows up, there is wisdom in old sayings.

I remember being with my father and his friends as a child, and that saying was the rule, because of course, I had very little to offer an adult conversation. That was then.

I also remember the Bill Clinton/Whitney Houston 80s and 90s. Bill Clinton for coining the phrase “for the children” and Whitney Houston for that sappy song “The Greatest Love Of All’ with what we thought were harmless lyrics….

I believe the children are our are future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier

Between the two of them, talk about the makings of the big head.

Let me preface the remainder of this column by saying that when I refer to young people, I don’t mean all. Some of them get it. Obviously, most of them don’t.

Those kids grew up with progressive teachers who, because of the power of the grading system (which can make or break futures), told them they knew more than their ignorant parents; they knew more than simpleton adults. They’re opinions, despite the lack of life experience, were equal, important, if not superior, to adults. We gave them the technological means for self-expression which they now use to bully themselves and others.

They now believe they know everything because of what they were taught by educational authority figures. They believed in recycling, came home and told us we should too. They believed in the Palestinians, and came home and told us we should too.

Think about this: do you think young teen-aged girls, yapping away on cellphones about themselves and boys at the mall would soon be ready to place themselves between an Army bulldozer and a suspected terrorist hideout on the West bank without a little prodding from some opinionated college professors?

They now believe in global warming caused by evil corporations and our lust for the very fossil fuels that enabled us to take their lazy butts to the mall, came home and told us we should too. Then they believed in a man named Barack Obama for all the wonderful things he would do to fix this imperialist, racist, homophobic society that enabled them to live relatively carefree lives.

They came to our homes; they came to our schools; they came to our workplaces; they came via our television shows; they came to our websites and demanded we think like they wanted us to think, vote like they wanted us to vote, or else.

Now, they roam the streets when we have party conventions, destroy public and private property, wearing black masks in full view seemingly to give us all the middle finger of defiance while they intentionally break the law.

What else did that “or else” entail?

They got in our faces. They called us names when they couldn’t debate the realities of what Obama’s policies could cost us all, which was not big deal to them because most of them still live at home, don’t pay rent, don’t pay for food, don’t pay for their cellphone bill (and bitch when they exceed their text limits), don’t pay for the Internet bill, don’t pay for power, don’t do dishes, and many don’t even wash their own clothes, yet THEY KNOW what’s best for the nation.

THEY KNOW that Cap-and-Trade will be good for the economy and will create “green jobs” although they can’t tell us what specifically they’ll be.

THEY KNOW that universal health care is something they all want, although probably none of them could define it two years ago.

Personally, I’m tired of having arrogant, narcissistic children question my intelligence publicly online while they can’t even accurately spell their insults. I’m tired of being told my opinion on foreign affairs don’t matter because I never served (even though I am a Navy veteran). I’m tired of hearing Bill Clinton and Whitney Houston’s voices every time I’m told that my opinions don’t count because I won’t be around much longer, the world belongs to them, and they’ll show us with their soon-to-be-served Coffee Parties.

I plan of being around (as I’m not THAT old) when the social utopia they insisted would come about doesn’t and they whine because we saw this coming and didn’t warn them. I plan on being around watching them bitch and moan when they have to pay 80 cents on every dollar they earn because of socialist policies their president imposed on the rest of us that limits their freedoms. And they thought a grounding was bad. Soon they’ll have to pay for the privilege and it’ll be their own damn fault.

The very young people we sacrificed decades of our lives feeding, clothing, and housing have declared war on the rest of us. If you think I’m being sensational, ask yourselves this: where would we be today had those young people listened to the advise of those who’ve seen and experienced more? Would we be talking about “reconciliation” or “carbon credits” or “death panels”? Would our entertainment and education industrial complexes have had the power to turn the very children we supported with our unconditional love and toil against us?

Maybe, maybe not, but much of the youth of America has declared war on the rest of us and we all need to decide what we’re going to do about it.

Personally, with the coming midterm and presidential elections looming, I think I may offer what my father would’ve said.

Children should be seen and not heard.

And if that doesn’t work, “Shut up!”

70s music of the day

Not sure if this acid jazz, fusion, or something else

Point is..it's just plain rad
