I Can't Believe I Heard This For The First Time Tonight ♪♫♪ Reminder: This is a live show, not studio.


 I was mowing the lawn and had my airpods on under my ear muffs. Yes, I said muff. 

 Anyway, Pandora was streaming different songs and this one caught my ear.

It made me stop the mower and grab the phone from my pocket to see who it was.

Internally my comment to myself was , 'no fucking way'. I should have recognized the talent.


Enjoy, if you have never heard this song.

Sign Of The Times.... Updated. It appears to have been at a Dollar Tree Store




 LINK HERE <<<<<


BREMEN, Ind. (WNDU) - The Bremen Dollar Tree is going viral this week due to a unique help wanted sign that is not only controversial but could be considered discriminatory.

While the sign no longer hangs in the window of the Dollar Tree, it was there long enough for passers-by and potential customers to snap photos.

The handwritten sign read:

“I apologize for us closing AGAIN. My 2 new cashiers quit because I said their boyfriends couldn’t stand here for their entire shift.”

“Don’t hire Gen Z’s. They don’t know what work actually means. NOW HIRING! *Baby Boomers ONLY, thanks!”

Generation Z includes any person born between 1997 and 2012 or someone who is between 9 and 24 years old.

The Baby Boomer Generation includes any person born between 1946 and 1964 or someone who is between 58 and 76 years young.

“You’re going to get people from every group who are lazy and work hard. I’m sure when baby boomers were young, they were probably also called lazy, and it just keeps going on from generation to generation,” said frequent Dollar Tree customer Lindsay Berger.

16 News Now was informed that the store’s manager put up the sign after two young employees had quit.

“People just need to be kind and understand other people’s situations. You don’t always know what’s going on in somebody else’s life, and it’s not all about you. Be compassionate with another,” said Bremen Resident Elizabeth Wily.

16 News Now reached out to Dollar Tree for a statement on the incident.

“We are aware that an unauthorized sign was posted at our store for a brief period of time. The handwritten message was absolutely not approved by or condoned by our Company,” said Randy Guiler, Vice President and Investor Relations for Dollar Tree, Inc.

Federal law prevents employment discrimination based on race, sex, sexual orientation, disability, religion, color, and veteran status.

In the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Congress warned against “the setting of arbitrary age limits regardless of potential for job performance has become a common practice, and … may work to the disadvantage of older persons.” As a local attorney told 16 News Now, it would be wise for a business to forbid its employees from making any employment decision based on someone’s age.

The manager is no longer employed by Dollar Tree.

Dangerously Hot Days Plague Alabama

 It has definitely been hot in "The Heart of Dixie". We have experienced heat indices here for the last several days of 107-112 F. I noticed on the local news that Jasper, AL was reporting a heat index of 120F at 5:30 PM today. Hopefully, we will get some relief soon. A friend sent me the following and I thought I'd share it.

How Nations Fail.


How Nations Fail. Is America on a Path of Permanent Decline?

By Don Feder

Men, like nations, think they’re eternal. What man in his 20s or 30s doesn’t believe, at least subconsciously, that he’ll live forever?

In the springtime of youth, an endless summer beckons. As you pass 70, it’s harder to hide from reality.

Nations, too, have seasons. Imagine a Roman of the 2nd. Century contemplating an empire that stretched from Britain to the Near East, thinking: This will endure forever.

Forever was about 500 years, give or take.

France was the thing in the 17th and 18th centuries. Now the land of Charles Martel is on its way to becoming part of the Muslim community.

In the 19th and early 20th centuries, the sun never set on the British Empire. Now Albion exists in perpetual twilight. Its 95-year-old sovereign is a fitting symbol for a nation in terminal decline.

In the 1980s, Japan seemed poised to buy the world. Business schools taught Japanese management techniques. Today, its birth rate is so low, and its population is aging so rapidly that an industry has sprung up to remove the remains of elderly Japanese who die alone.

I was born in 1946, almost at the midpoint of the 20th century – the American century.  America’s prestige and influence were never greater. Thanks to the Greatest Generation, we won a World War fought over most of Europe, Asia, and the Pacific. We reduced Germany to rubble and put the rising sun to bed.

It set the stage for almost half a century of unprecedented prosperity. We stopped the spread of communism in Europe and Asia and fought international terrorism. We rebuilt our enemies and lavished foreign aid on much of the world.

We built skyscrapers and rockets to the moon. We conquered Polio and COVID.  We explored the mysteries of the Universe and the wonders of DNA, the blueprint of life.

But where is the glory that once was Rome?

America has moved from a relatively free economy to socialism – which has worked so well nowhere in the world. We’ve gone from a republican government guided by a constitution to a regime of revolving elites. We have less freedom with each passing year.

Like a signpost to the coming reign of terror, the cancel culture is everywhere. We’ve traded the American Revolution for the Cultural Revolution.

The pathetic demented creature in the White House is an empty vessel filled by his handlers. At the G-7 Summit, Dr. Jill had to lead him like a child.

In 1961, when we were young and vigorous, our leader was too. Now a feeble nation is technically led by the oldest man to ever serve in the presidency.

We can’t defend our borders, history (including monuments to past greatness), or our streets. Our cities have become anarchist playgrounds.

We are a nation of dependents, mendicants, and misplaced charity. Homeless veterans camp in the streets while illegal aliens are put up in hotels.

The president of the United States can’t even quote the beginning of the Declaration of Independence correctly. Ivy League graduates routinely fail history tests that 5th graders could pass a generation ago.

Crime rates soar, and we blame the 2nd Amendment and slash police budgets.

Our culture is certifiably insane. We have men who marry men. Men who think they’re women. People who fight racism seek to convince members of one race that they’re inherently evil and others that they are perpetual victims. A psychiatrist lecturing at Yale said she fantasizes about “unloading a revolver into the head of any white person.”

We slaughter the unborn in the name of freedom while our birth rate dips lower year by year.

Our national debt is so high that we can no longer even pretend that we will repay it one day. It’s a $28-trillion monument to our improvidence and refusal to confront reality.

Our “entertainment” is sadistic, nihilistic, and enduring as a candy bar wrapper thrown in the trash. Our music is nothing but noise that spans the spectrum from annoying to repulsive.

Patriotism is called an insurrection, treason celebrated, and perversion sanctified.

A man in blue gets less respect than a man in a dress.

We’re asking soldiers to fight for a nation in which our leaders no longer believe.

How meekly most submitted to Fauci-ism (the regime of face masks and hand sanitizers) shows the death of the American spirit.

How do nations slip from greatness to obscurity?

  • Fighting endless wars, they can’t or won’t win.
  • Accumulating massive debt far beyond their ability to repay
  • Refusing to guard their borders, allowing alien hordes to inundate their nation.
  • Surrendering control of their cities to mob rule
  • Allowing indoctrination of the young
  • Moving from a republican form of government to an oligarchy
  • Losing national identity
  • Indulging indolence
  • Abandoning faith and family – the bulwarks of social order.

In America, every one of these symptoms is unmistakable, indicating an advanced stage of the disease.

Even if the cause seems hopeless, do we not have an obligation to those who sacrificed so much to give us what we had?

I’m surrounded by ghosts urging me on—the Union soldiers who held Cemetery Ridge at Gettysburg, the battered bastards of Bastogne, those who served in the cold hell of Korea, the guys who went to the jungles of Southeast Asia and came home to be reviled or neglected.

This nation took in my immigrant grandparents, whose uniform my father and most of my uncles wore in the Second World War. I don’t want to imagine a world without America, even though it becomes increasingly likely.

During Britain’s darkest hour, when its professional army was trapped at Dunkirk, and a German invasion seemed imminent, Churchill reminded his countrymen, “Nations that go down fighting rise again, and those that surrender tamely are finished.”

The same might be said of causes. If we let America slip through our fingers, what will posterity say of us if we lose without a fight?

While the prognosis is far from good, only God knows if America’s day in the sun is over.
