President Obama commuted the sentences of 214 more federal inmates Wednesday, the largest single-day grant of commutations in the nation’s history. Obama has now used his constitutional clemency power to shorten the sentences of more federal inmates than any president since Calvin Coolidge. The early release of the 214 prisoners — most convicted of low-level drug offenses — is part of…

JAN 13, 2014 – A campaign called "Sing Forward" to raise awareness about the Affordable Care Act has been launched out of Wisconsin by Musicians For Health, urging fellow musicians to enroll in a health insurance program at the HealthCare.gov website. One of the main musical-activists leading the way is Anna Vogelzang, and she is letting other musicians know one can get health insurance through the exchanges for as little as $25-$50 a month; a catastrophic plan can be as little as $10 a month. There is even a song they wrote for the campaign titled "Sing Forward!", and they have the lyric sheet and a video to sing along with. They have a REMIX contest where you can submit your remix of the song, and the prizes are cash, tickets and other cool stuff. I might submit one myself! Check out the video of "Sing Forward" below, and check out the Sing Forward! website here where you can even punch in your zip code and find an affordable health plan. If you ever drop your amp on your foot and break your toe you will need it.
AUG 30, 2013 – Crazy Uncle Ted is at it again, this time in an email interview with rightwing rag MyDesert.com calling the Obama Administration a "regime", and saying they are "criminal" and dismantling "the greatest quality of life in the history of mankind." He also then mind farts, "As an American constantly attacked by the leftist goons in the media & politics, I am performing the most important office in the land; we the people spotlighting cockraches. Nothing is off the table, and I can and will do whatever is necessary to oust the enemies of America from their corrupt stranglehold on us." Is Nugent referring to armed insurrection by him and the Teabagger gunnuts? He then incredulously stole the civil rights struggle's mantra mind farting, "I am encouraging and inspiring more and more Americans to stand up to the scammers and gun runners and racists in office across the land. We shall overcome." OMFG. Once again, Teabaggers are calling the people who point out racism "racists". To read the entire mind fart interview from the insane Teabag mind of Ted Nugent, go to MyDesert.com here.
MAY 1, 2013 – Just when you think Ted Nugent can't sink any lower, more insane garbage pours from his sick mind and he sinks to a new low. This time, he comments on the horrible tragedy of our soldier suicide epidemic, and blames it on…wait for it…wait for it…President Barack Obama. Raw Story has a great article out on his insane mind-fart ramblings on the "The Alex Jones Show" where Nugent said, “But I’ll tell you why more and more warrior heroes of the military are killing themselves: because they are in absolute frustration and heartbreak that their boss, their commander in chief violates the Constitution that he has made an oath to, while their hero warrior blood brothers are being blown to smithereens and blown up while executing their oath to the same Constitution that the president, the vice president and the attorney general violate.” Read the whole article by Stephen C. Webster on RawStory.com here.
MAR 31, 2013 – After 8 years of George W. Bush illegally wiretapping, reading our emails and signing the Patriot Act and shredding the Constitution, Charlie Daniels and other conservative musicians hardly said a peep. Now, when President Obama simply wants to expand background checks for all gun purchases after the Newtown tragedy, Daniels is apparently all of a sudden concerned about the power of the federal government. He wrote an editorial on CNSNews.com implying black helicopters coming to take all of our guns away, and the federal government enslaving us or something. First, what took you so long Charlie to realize our federal government is growing in power and has been chipping away at our civil liberties? A black man finally getting elected? Why didn't you say anything when Bush and Cheney were radically altering the federal government and the reach of Executive Power?
Mr. Daniels wrote, 'Raw power is being handed over to the federal government in unprecedented and dangerous amounts and, once the power becomes strong enough, the true purposes will be exposed as America succumbs to the very dictatorial system it fought against for a century."
MAR 4, 2013 – In a move that has sent shockwaves through the climate change activist movement, the US State Department has issued their review of the impact that the Keystone XL Pipeline will have on our climate change crisis, and they have concluded that the Keystone XL Pipeline will supposedly "not lead to a new increase in greenshouse gas emissions". Virtually all environmental activists and groups are stunned and saddened by this, for the Keystone Pipeline, and the Tar Sands development, have wreaked havoc on wildlife, the environment, and has a huge impact on our climate change crisis.

FEB 19, 2013 – Ever since the SOTU, Ted Nugent has been Tweeting about his experience. He started with Tweeting, "the prez is a master scam artist didnt believe a word" and supposedly "made all the corrupt liars squirm"; apparently unable to figure out how to use the shift and alt keys on his smartphone.
Then he attacked Luke Russell for pointing out to him his words are insane, and Tweeted about the gay, liberal, musical-activist Thomas Lauderdale of Pink Martini Nugent sat next during the SOTU address, saying he wants to play music with him, "Let's jam!"; don't hold your breath for that concert. Lastly, Nugent attacked SNL for showing how crazy he was; watch the SNL skit video below.
JAN 23, 2013 – In an interview for Guns.com, has-been musician Ted Nugent spouted off about President Barack Obama's recent executive orders and measures proposed for gun safety, saying Obama is "attempting to re-implement the tyranny of King George that we escaped from in 1776, and if you want another Concord Bridge, I've got a few buddies." He also added, "He is an evil, dangerous man who hates America and hates freedom. And we need to fix this as soon as possible." It seems to me he is implying and supporting armed rebellion if the federal government enacts gun safety measures. Someone needs to school Ted Nugent and these Teabaggers on the Whiskey Rebellion, where George Washington led troops in the field to establish the power of the federal government; I guess Ted Nugent wants to have that battle all over again. Watch the video interview by Guns.com below.
JAN 21, 2013 – Kelly Clarkson sang the full version of "My Country 'tis of Thee" at President Barack Obama's second inauguration, check out the video below.
