POLITICAL: But “celebrities” should be seen and not heard on politics

*** begin quote ***

Let’s not forget about Taylor Swift insisting that any monument honoring “racists” needs to be removed. I wonder if she is talking about the Lincoln Memorial? Honest Abe didn’t have very nice things to say about black Americans.

Swift is stupid, but a typical celebrity, so you expect this nonsense from her crowd.

*** end quote ***

I enjoyed her early music before she went “big time” and “adult”. I understand that everyone has to grow up.

But “celebrities” should be seen and not heard on politics.

Just because they are “rich”, doesn’t make their opinion any more important than the poor working stiff at the unemployment office. That fellow will at least have their priorities in order.

FUN: @tswift13 will keep me out late tonight #tswift #tswift13

Yes, I finally have a life.

My ex-neice-in-law gave me Taylor Swift concert tickets for tonight’s show.

I’ll be the fat old white guy injineer singing along with all the teeny, tweeny, and teen girls.


(Have to stay young someway. And, @tswift13 is excellent role model in a “Secular Progressive” society.)

So, I’m out for fun.

Last time I went to show like this was back in the folk singing 60’s. Although I did see one of PPM’s last shows at George Mason University. (Mary Travers, RIP)

I think Tay is this generation’s folk singer and poetess laureate. And, a very charitable person.

Interesting to me is how she has transitioned from strictly country to country / pop / teen. While growning to womanhood. Sort of like Shirley Temple Black. Wonder if she can reinvent like Madona does; without the sleaze.

Any way.

Maybe I’ll get an autograph. Laff. If for some reason I get a gold wrist band, I’ll pass it to one of the youngsters. What would I say to her? “Good job”!
