Song of the week: Reach Out (I'll Be There), The Four Tops

I love Motown. The first time I remember hearing this song was in the movie, Cooley High. Mom for the first time could afford to take us to see a movie-- I must have been about 10 years old, she hadn't bought our house yet. So, since she trusted me and her English was still not great, I grabbed the newspaper and saw the ad for Cooley High...Sounded good... it was about high school kids growing up in Chicago. There were high school kids in our neighborhood at the time... I admired them... wanted to hang out with them.. So, my mom agreed and off we three went to the drive in. Oops. Not really intended for 10 year olds... Too funny. No permanent damage, I didn't get most of the movie... my brother fell asleep and my mom laughed at the situation and covered my eyes for a few scenes. It wasn't until I saw the movie again when I was about 15 or 16 did I get it. It's a really good movie with a great soundtrack. The music is what carried you from scene to scene... it's a dark look at growing up... the urban version of American Graffiti? No... it's not...

The lead vocalist of The Four Tops is now forever silent, may he rest in peace. We will always have the music...


So, this week we have all met Joe the Plumber. Is it just me or does anyone else see the resemblance between Joe and Sci Fi's Ghost Hunter Plumber Jason Hawes? I digress.

So much has been written about Joe Wurzelbacher. The guy is normal... raising a son... working, paying his taxes and living his life. He is an undecided voter who went to an Obama rally to find some answers. He asked a simple question. He was doing the right thing.. the American thing... He was taking this election seriously and collecting information so he could make an informed decision and cast his vote accordingly. Watch the complete exchange:

Go here to see his comments on CBS' The Early Show. Joe explains why it is important to get the facts and not rely on others to develop your own opinion.

Here is another clip... sense of entitlement??

and on MSNBC... I'm not Matt Damon and I'm not sorry we're in Iraq!

and on Good Morning America... That's a Socialist view

then you have this dumb@$$... Joe Biden... LISTEN to the exchange between The Oracle and Joe Wurzelbacher... not what he said...

So, because Joe asked a question... the liberal media, hippies, kool aid drinkers and other foul mouthed lefties are trying to trash this guy...trying to ruin him. Why? He just asked a question...

interview with Mike Huckabee-- When you can't ask a question of your leaders anymore... that's scary...

Look, Joe asked a question. His voice resonated with middle America... just like Sarah Palin. We are tired of politicians.... we are tired of the lies... we are tired of seeing our country slowly slipping away... we are tired of seeing our freedoms and liberties being taken from us... we are tired of those who feel they are entitled to our stuff... we are tired of the liberals apologizing for our country... In every interview... Joe has spoken for me... He is proud of our troops and what they have done and continue to do... He doesn't apologize for pursuing the American dream...

The only thing I feel bad for him is he is a Cincinnati Bengals fan... I'm so sorry Joe.. but even that... that makes me appreciate him too.

I got into it with someone earlier this week... He said that if Republicans are so concerned about getting folks registered to vote and having them vote Dem, we should be doing the same... HELLOOOO!!! Conservatives are busy working... making a living... paying GD taxes... We aren't hippy dippy lefties that are living off government grants and other government giveaways... we are busy supporting our families and other deadbeats like you...

McCain & Palin 2008.

Sarah & Joe in 2012.

Have a great week everyone!
