A Mixed-Up, Jumbled-Up,Shook-Up World!!!

crazyworld sayingcrazy-worldconfucius104563

End of world

Girls will be boys and boys will be girls .It’s a mixed-up, jumbled up shook up world” The Kinks in Lola-1968,

When the Kinks wrote that song in1968 about a guy who meets a transvestite in a bar little did they know what the world would be today.  The words still ring more true today than then and the world is truly a mixed-up,jumbled up,shook up world.

Recently a Mother said she wants to be a father and her son said he wants to be her daughter. Parents want their sons to be daughters and daughters to be sons. People are changing their sexes. It’s crazy alright.

When women on the women’s march wore what they called pussy hats it was to represent women power and an attack on Trump’s comment 11 years ago about grabbing a woman’s private part. It was supposed to be them striking back. Now the transgender crowd is attacking them saying they are now oppressed because wearing a pussy hat means equating womenhood with  having a vagina.

The author of the 790-word jeremiad, Taylor Griggs, trains her invective on “‘free the nipple’ campaigns” and, especially, the perky, neon-pink-yarn “pussy power hats” with which many participants in the January Women’s March on Washington festooned themselves.

Griggs quotes Marie Solis in Mic for the proposition that signs at the Women’s March reading “Pussy power” and “Pussy grabs back” deliver “a clear and oppressive message to trans women.” That oppressive message is: “having a vagina is essential to womanhood.”

Solis goes on to quote a transgender woman who was offended by feminists holding “signs that equate womanhood with having a vagina” — and even more offended by a subset of feminists who point out that “trans women are actually men in disguise trying to infiltrate their spaces.” ‘Pussy Hats’ Oppress Transgender People Now | The Daily Caller It’s fun to watch the left turn on itself.

Now feminists have taken to wearing hijabs in solidarity with their Muslim “sisters” saying they are all one when we share diversity. USA Today recently ran an article on this with a picture of Hillary wearing a hijab when she was in a Mid-East country

The USA Today article makes two points about an alleged increasing willingness of young, Western Muslim women to don hijabs which they may have previously shirked because of ties to oppressive religious themes.

First, the article says, the hijab is experiencing a re-birth as a symbol of resistance to President Donald Trump’s hardline policies involving travelers to the U.S. from heavily Muslim nations. Those policies, combined with some of Trump’s previous statements, have been used as proof that the current administration has deeply rooted Islamaphobic ideals.

The article then relays that the hijab is ripe for use as a symbol of empowerment in Western culture because no one in the U.S. is forcing women to wear the head coverings.

From the piece:

Since the election of President Donald Trump, the debate around Islamic dress has taken a new turn: The hijab has emerged as a symbol of resistance to Islamophobia amid policies from the Trump administration targeting Muslim immigrants.

Scores of non-Muslims have donned hijabs to express solidarity with Muslim women, too, though some criticized the move, arguing that the garment represents oppression of womenYoung Muslims like Sameeha disagree.

“I do believe hijab support feminism,” she said outside the Muslim prayer center at her school’s College Park campus. “The way you look at it from a religious perspective, it empowers you by strengthening your relationship with God. It’s a step you are taking to further yourself within your own religion.”

“No one forced me to dress this way,” she added. No Joke: Because Trump, hijabs are ‘feminist’ – Personal Liberty®

 I think that the women who are trying to pass off the hijab as a sign of protest for women’s rights should think about the girls that were forced back into a burning building because they did not have a hijab on. If I am not mistaken a true hijab covers not just the head but the face as well except for the eyes.

Tuesday, singer Alicia Keys – who performed at the 2016 Democratic National Convention – posted a tweet about diversity saying in diversity we see ourselves with a picture of a woman in a complete body covered Muslim garb.

This is just the sort of empty-headed virtue signaling you’d expect from a member of the political far-left who obviously knows nothing about the way radical Islam treats women. It’s the idiocy of modern feminism in action. It’s one thing to defend the hijab, the Islamic head-covering that virtually all religious Muslim women wear. It’s another to defend the niqab, the face-covering into which many religious Muslim countries force women.

Here’s the fact: in the countries in which women typically wear the niqab, like Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Iran, a woman who exposed her leg the way the woman does in the photo would be criminally prosecuted. In Sudan in 2015, nine women were flogged for wearing pants. In Indonesia last year, a Muslim woman was flogged for standing in close  proximity to her boyfriend. A few months ago, Saudi Arabia arrested a woman for taking a photograph without her abaya.  Alicia Keys Posts This Incredibly Stupid Tweet, Then Deletes It | Daily Wire . See picture here.

Women have had acid thrown in their faces for not wearing a hijab or not having their head and face covered. Some Muslim women in this country have spoken out against these feminist using the hijab to protest Trump as exploiting them and their culture.

Yes the hypocrisy of the libs knows no bounds. Recently Bill O’Reilly made a comment   on his show saying he was distracted by Maxine Water’s James Brown like wig so he didn’t catch what she said about Trump .Well that drew the Ire of Maxine and her followers calling for Bill to be fired so Bill caved and apologized also being a gentleman. Meanwhile Maxine has a history of making nasty comments about Trump and conservatives none of which have seen apologies. “I oppose this president. I do not honor this president. I do not respect this president,” Waters said during her speech Tuesday in which she bashed President Donald Trump. “And my mission and my goal is to make sure that he does not remain president of the United States of America,” she continued. Hypocrite Dems Call For O’Reilly Firing Over Maxine Waters Hair Comments But S

She also said democrats are more patriotic than republicans. She is so mean in her comments to Trump and republicans that she is the one who should be impeached.

Yes the left says you can’t mock Maxine’s wig but you can compare trumps kids, Ivanka and Jared Kusner working for him, to Saddam’s kids like Chris Mathews did on MSNBC last week.

Thousands of unhinged libs signed a petition saying Melania should move out of Trump Tower and move into the white house or pay for her own security. They can’t wait another three months for Barron to finish school. She is moving into the white house when he finishes and they are painting her office for her and she goes there on week-ends. But these same unhinged libs didn’t complain about taxpayers money when Michelle Obama and her 20 person entourage went all over the world with her and when we paid for security for her mother who lived with them and their super expensive multi-million dollar vacations at Martha’s Vineyard.

Yes as the Kinks once sang, it sure is a “mixed -up, jumbled up shook up world.”

Is This Another Overseas Contingency Operation?

isis-iraq-marching.jpg (570×329)

6c00f64a4c9a8bfd2e4fee4ddec938cd.jpg (467×350)

obama_iraq_isis.jpg (620×383)When Bush got us into Iraq and Afghanistan it was labeled the “War on Terror.” When Obama came into power he quickly changed it to a PC version calling them an “overseas contingency operation” and domestic terror acts like Fort Hood were similarly labeled “work place violence.”

When we went into Iraq the media played up that we were looking for Saddam’s WMD’s, but we did much more than that. Much more.  Prior to going into Iraq Saddam had his country under Sharia law. Women couldn’t work, women couldn’t be seen with another man unless she was related to him, women had to be covered up at all times and if a woman was raped she needed four eye-witnesses. After we defeated Saddam we brought those people out of the dark ages. We held free elections and everyone voted. Remember the famous photos of the purple fingers showing they had voted for the first time? We built schools and infrastructure for them. Women could serve in government and hold positions there and be free again, but to maintain all of this we would have to be there for several years  until  they got established like we do in all countries after we liberate them from oppression.

Enter Obama saying he was going to pull us out of Iraq. In fact he couldn’t wait to do it fast enough which he did leaving only 300 troops behind to defend the embassy there. In 2009 Obama released the leading terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi from GITMO whereupon he told his guards “See you in New York.”  This madman proceeded to form and head ISIS  (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) made up of parts of the anti-Syrian rebels along with Al Qaeda which we were arming. ISIS proceeded to become an army of 800 and successfully had the Iraqi army we were training of 1300 surrender to them. ISIS then began taking over Iraq city after city destroying everything we did there burning buildings and putting the land under Sharia law again hoping to eventually team up with Hamas and the muslim brotherhood and make the entire mid-east one big caliphate. From there they would take on the west in Europe and eventually the United States. In fact recently they proclaimed “the Islamic flag will fly over the white house.” They have since taken over the largest dam in Iraq and if they blow that up enitre sections of Iraq  will be under water and half a million people will die.Obama was warned this would happen if he pulled out too soon, but he didn’t listen and now faces the cold hard reality facts.

ISIS in conquering city after city is telling everyone to convert to ISLAM, pay a tax or die.  Many  Christians are threatened and forced to leave. ISIS is beheading men, women and children and killing anyone who does not comply.

As these Islamic fanatics murder their way through Iraq they have captured and enslaved hundreds of women who fell into their clutches. Many of these women are members of an ancient sect called Yazidis who ISIS considers “infidels and devil worshippers.” They intend to make slaves out of them. “They are holding them in schools in the city of Mosul and will do terrible, animalistic things to them,” said a spokesman for the Iraq human rights ministry.

Those that escaped are in the mountains and in dire need of food and water. Obama has ordered bombing raids on the ISIS group and humanitarian aid by dropping food and water supplies to the refugees in the mountain area.  These fanticas have no sanctity for human life and you can’t reason with them. It’s their way or the hyway. The only way to deal with them is to destroy them. So since Obama doesn’t consider these murdering, fanatical Islamic thugs terrorists or doesn’t consider this a war on terror and since this operation doesn’t have a name is it just another overseas contingency operation?

Ann Coulter is Right

Ann Coulter, TwitterRecently Michelle O. Posted a picture of herself with a sad face on Instagram holding a sign that read “Bring Our Girls back”. First of all they aren’t OUR girls, they’re Nigeria’s girls. Secondly she compared the Nigerian girls to her own girls just like Obama said if he had a son he would look like Treyvon.  So Ann Coulter printed up a sign with her with  a sad face that says “Bring our country back. Well the liberal left wing Huffington Post and MSNBC who never say anything positive about any republican or conservative had a field day attacking her with a headline that said “Ann Coulter’s hashtag blows up in her face.” Well that started a firestorm of verbal attacks between pro and anti Ann Coulter forces. I happen to agree with her and the comment below:

Myke 3 minutes ago

Ann has the guts to call a spade a spade. This administration has trashed our reputation around the world, our economy, and now our health care system, not to mention having inept, corrupt government agencies like the NSA and the IRS. Are we better off than we were 6 years ago? If you’re honest, the answer is a VERY LOUD, HELL NO WE AREN’T. Vote straight Republican, you’re better off in the long run for sure!!!!!!!

This is the most corrupt administration we’ve ever had. It’s tearing our country apart with the greatest division ever. We are viewed as weak in the world, China and other countries’ economies are ahead of ours. Our military is down to pre WW11 levels while other countries are building up. Our lives are being controlled by Obamcare with all our medical records going in one government central computer, cameras on every street corner spying on us, gays and now transgenders in the military, all our rights being trampled on in the name of the greater good and  the gov’t knows what’s best for us,1 in 3 people are unemployed,50 million people on food stamps and a 17 trillion dollar debt and counting. Yes I agree with Ann. BRING OUR COUNTRY BACK!!!! Charity begins at home. We have young people kidnapped and missing here every day, Syria has young girls being kidnapped, Iran does too. I wonder if the girls were from Great Britain kidnapped by a terror group there or if they were IsreaIi girls would Michelle feel the same? How come she and her husband didn’t show the same attitude when our ambassador and three others were killed in Benghazi or how about asking for that young boy kidnapped and held in a prison in Mexico because he accidentally drove over the border? If they were the same color as the Nigerian girls would things be different? Meanwhile as usual, Obama fell back on his four point style of governance: deny everything, admit nothing, blame others, and make counter accusations. Yes I agree with Ann, BRING OUR COUNTRY BACK!!!!

POPE PELOSI WASHES FEET OF IMMIGRANTS…

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (left) prepares to pour water on the feet of Yamile Cruz, 10, with the help of Bishop Marc Andrus during a Holy Week foot-washing ceremony at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Photo: Leah Millis, San Francisco Chronicle

When Obama recently met with the Pope, the Pope gave him a set of rosary beads he personally blessed for him. So what does Obama do with them? The moment he got back here, the first thing he did was give them to Nancy Pelosi. What an insult, but insulting this country is nothing new to this muslim squatting in our white house. It was like he was saying, ”Here Nancy you can have them I have no use for them.” If anyone received such a once in a lifetime gift they would hold onto it for dear life, but not this guy. He gives it away.

Now during Easter week the Pope washed the feet of the disabled in Rome. Here Nancy Pelosi follows suit by washing the feet of two immigrant children in a church and uses it as a photo op to defend HR15, the immigration reform bill pending in congress saying,“It would reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship.” She told the congregation.

What a fake, phony, hypocritical fraud. One minute she’s beating the war drums to get us involved in a war with Syria, and defending the NSA and CIA spying on Americans, and the next minute she’s the pious Catholic. Can you imagine if Laura Bush or some republican woman did this?  Can you imagine the outcry from the left about separation of church and state? This woman is the biggest proponent of abortion which kills millions of babies each year and here she is in a church mixing religion and politics which the left is always criticizing the right for doing. She should be ex-communicated. Let’s see what Jesus thinks about all of this when she stands before his final judgment seat to determine whether she is worthy of heaven, or damned to hell.

Hey Nancy how is HR15 going to reduce the deficit by a trillion dollars and secure our borders? We heard that in Obamcare too. How it was only going to cost 9 billion dollars and so far it is at 2 trillion and climbing. Obama himself has added seven trillion to the debt. To paraphrase Ms. Pelosi,” I guess they’ll just have to pass it to know what’s in it. 😀

The Mystery of Flight 370

malaysia_flight_370_031014   

140309132504-malaysia-bejing-flight-map-story-top.jpg (640×360)

Like an episode out of  the Twilight Zone, a Malaysian aircraft simply vanished without a trace leaving relatives scared and upset and investigators  baffled while conspiracy theorists abound.  I have listed a few conspiracy theories below. A lot of the information here I have taken from various articles and added my own special touch in the closing paragraph. 😉 

Details concerning the sudden, Saturday disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight 370 continue to trickle in. Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, the head of Malaysia’s Civil Aviation Authority, said the missing Boeing 777 carrying 227 passengers presents an “unprecedented mystery.”

Here’s what we do know: The flight disappeared on Friday night/Saturday morning en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. The plane was at cruising altitude (35,000 feet) and weather was more or less clear. Air traffic controllers in Vietnam say contact with the crew disappeared about 120 nautical miles east of the Malaysian town of Kota Bharu, and radar signals suggest the plane may have turned around before losing contact.

And yet, nearly three whole days later, there are still no signs of the jet or its passengers. And an oil slick spotted in the South China sea originally thought to be a clue turned out to be a false lead:

Two Italian passengers said to be aboard the flight turned out to be safe on the ground, when they told authorities that their passports had, in fact, been stolen earlier. Someone aboard the flight was said to be using them, one of whom resembled a famous soccer player:

Adding another wrinkle to the case, the Wall Street Journal reports that airliners “such as the Malaysian jet also carry emergency beacons to transmit the aircraft’s location in the event of a mishap so that rescue teams can reach the site.” These beacons, called emergency locator devices, are activated by impact on land or water, along with other emergency communications equipment. Malaysia’s aviation regulator said no signals were received from flight MH370’s beacon.

Over at Reddit, speculation is surprisingly measured. Says one user who claims to be a pilot:

At 35,000 feet they’d be able to travel another ~100-120 miles (far enough to reach the coast of Vietnam). Depending on the speed of the aircraft, it would take at least 15-30 minutes to reach the earth (or sea), giving them ample time to make a distress call. Throw in this weird stuff with the fake passports, and now reports that the plane apparently had attempted to turn back, and this makes me think something pretty sudden and catastrophic must have happened, and mechanical and/or pilot error seems unlikely in this case.

On Monday, China’s state-run media blasted the Malaysian government’s rescue efforts, arguing that initial reaction from the country “was not swift enough.” Currently,at least 45 ships and 22 aircraft from nine countries, including the U.S., China, and more, are partaking in a joint multi-national rescue effort. “If [the disappearance] is due to a deadly mechanical breakdown or pilot error, then Malaysia Airlines should take the blame,”

wrote China’s Global Times in a scathing editorial. “If this is a terrorist attack, then the security check at the Kuala Lumpur airport and on the flight is questionable.”

Another, just as bizarre conspiracy theory suggests terrorists hijacked the plane, and have parked the plane intact in an abandoned hanger to use as “a weapon of mass destruction” in the future.”

Exactly why is this bizarre? Fact: the plane is missing. Fact: As your own story admits, there is “no trace” of it.

There is zero evidence to date that the airliner crashed. As detectives say, “When the impossible has been eliminated, what is left, however improbable, must be the truth.”

At this point, neither a crash nor a hijack are impossible and neither can be ruled out. So it is certainly not “bizarre” to hypothesize that the plane was hijacked and landed covertly. It would be a challenge, but not impossible.

Authorities have revealed one of the two men who used stolen passports to board the missing Malaysian Airlines plane looked like Mario Balotelli.

As it emerged an Iranian businessman named by Thai officials as Kazem Ali was understood to have booked the tickets for the two passengers using the stolen passports, the men who boarded the plane were said to have not been of ‘Asian appearance’.

 Malaysia’s police chief was quoted by local media as saying that one of the men had been identified.

 Civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman declined to confirm this, but said authorities were looking at the possibility the men were connected to a stolen passport syndicate.

 A U.S. led search is also taking place hundreds of miles away on the other side of the Malaysian peninsula.

 Malaysia’s civil aviation chief said today that the search for the Boeing 777 which vanished early Saturday morning had failed to find anything and that a sighting of a yellow object, which was earlier suspected to have been a life raft, was found to be a false alarm.

 It has now also been confirmed an oil slick suspected of coming from the wreckage was not jet fuel.

 Underlining the lack of hard information about the plane’s fate, a U.S. Navy P-3 aircraft capable of covering 1,500 sq miles every hour was sweeping the northern part of the Strait of Malacca, on the other side of the Malaysian peninsula from where the last contact with MH370 was made.

‘Our aircraft are able to clearly detect small debris in the water, but so far it has all been trash or wood,’ said U.S. 7th Fleet spokesman Commander William Marks in an emailed statement.

 As Interpol investigates whether up to four passengers boarded the plane using stolen passports, it was today revealed five passengers checked on to the flight but did not board the plane. Their baggage was removed before it departed.

 
Other theories suggest a missile from North Korea downed the plane since there was a plane from China that was hit by a missile test two weeks ago as the missile was coming down from a test firing. Here are two theories I found interesting:

“This could be interesting if it turns out North Korea shot it down with a missile as an exercise of their unsophisticated and reckless weapons programs. Maybe then China will take out the NK boy dictator, while the rest of the world watches. I can’t think of any country that would come to his assistance.”

 “There is always the possibility that someone on the plane was a target by the Chinese, and to get that one anonymously, they took out the whole plane. I wouldn’t put it past any government that supports the killing of innocents to do something like that.”

I was listening to John Batchelor on the radio the other night.There’s something about listening to talk radio in the dead of night with the lights out that makes it more intimnate and real. He was talking to a member of the NTSB and and asked him if he thought  they would find the plane. His response was,”They’ll find it alright,but not in the condition they expect to find it.” That was pretty scary to here at that time.

 Airplanes do not just disappear unless it was totally blown up by a missile and disintegrated so small pieces are not picked up on the radar as one theory suggested. So to add a little light on the subject, to paraphrase Rod Serling from his Twilight Zone episode “The Odyssey of Flight 33” To anyone in the Asian vicinity between Malaysia and China, if you hear engines that sound weak and troubled or lost, send up a flare, contact the FAA or nearest Air Traffic Control, do something,do anything for Flight  370 is trying to make it to its’ China destination.

Killing Kennedy-The Movie Review

article-0-1957B3B600000578-221_634x367.jpg (634×367)

I was 16 years old when Kennedy was shot so I have a good solid memory from then. I was on a class trip to Valley Forge, Pa. with my civics class. When we got there we were told that the president had been shot so we immediately turned back and were sent home. As I was walking home I was greeted by an excited friend of mine with his arms raging and flailing in the air saying, “They shot the president and governor. They’re trying to kill off the whole damn government,”

That week-end I was glued to the TV set and when Oswald was killed by Jack Ruby on Sunday it   became a lifelong obsession with me.  I still to this day have  the newspaper articles about it, I have the original Life magazine with Oswald on the cover holding his rifle and Marxist propaganda papers in his hand and the Saturday Evening Post with a Norman Rockwell like painting of Kennedy on the cover. I’ve read and still have the Mark Lane Book and LP record “Rush to  Judgment” and the Robert Sam Anson book  “They’ve Killed the President”.  I also must be  the only owner of a VHS video interview with a man named James Fields in prison who claims to have been the other shooter in the assassination called “Interview With an Assassin” He has  since passed away. So it was with great interest that I naturally view the movie” Killing Kennedy” on the National Geographic channel based on the book by Bill O’Reilly which I am also currently reading.

The movie was directed by Ridley Scott who is best known for films like “Blade Runner”, “Thelma and Louise,” “Alien” and many others. I was very much surprised that the film struck straight to the facts. No loosely based story or taking liberties like so many supposedly true movies do today. It was like you were actually viewing history as it happened.

Rob Lowe portrays Kennedy and they do a remarkable job of making him look exactly like Kennedy even sounding like him. The last time I saw Kennedy portrayed so exactly was William Devane in “The Guns of August” back in the 70’s about the Cuban missile crisis. Killing Kennedy is interspersed with actual film clips from then with Walter Cronkite and Chet Huntley among others. New actress Ginnefer Goodwin plays Jackie and also looks and talks just like her. They have everything exact down to the slightest detail including her famous pink dress that later becomes blood splattered and matching pill box hat.

Another new actor Will Rothaar plays Oswald and Michelle Trachtenberg (who I remember from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series) plays Marina Oswald. These two characters are hard to get look-alikes for, but the film does a remarkable job. They even have Oswald posing in the exact same position of holding his rifle and marxist propaganda papers in his hand and him shooting General Walker (who was an outspoken anti-communist speaker) through his window and missing.

The film doesn’t delve into any conspiracy theories and sticks straight to the facts which makes  it interesting and fast moving. In reading O’Reilly’s book he describes a scene with Jack Kennedy in the white house swimming pool with two lovely ladies when Jackie walks in on him just stares and walks away while a secret service agent tries to stop her. I was surprised to see this scene in there also done so exactly. O’Reilly’s book does delve into Kennedy’s sexual prowness and the secret service covering up for him with Jackie and the fact that Jackie knew but, never said anything.  I thought the movie was done perfectly and I remembered every incident portrayed so accurately in it. The only thing they didn’t show was Gov. Connolly turning to Jack in the car right before he was killed and saying that now famous quote, ”Well Mr. President you can’t say Dallas doesn‘t love you today.”

I’ve read most of the conspiracy theories over the years all of which are interesting, some more plausible than others and naturally the further away you get from such incidents it is easier to imagine more things happened than really did.  The only question I have is how does a guy like Oswald who was known for missing the targets  on the shooting range while in the marines and misses a general right outside his window  with a rifle with a scope on it suddenly pull off the crime of the century  with a moving target and a rifle not known for its’ accuracy and handling? We’ll probably never know and can only speculate.

Many reviewers are saying the movie lacks authenticity and lackluster.I guess these reviewers are so into seeing emotion and characterization in movies today or weren’t around when it happened to notice that this is not a so called docudrama, but an a actual,accurate depiction of real events. To those critics I say “Life is not always like the movies you know.” If you get a chance to see Killing Kennedy on cable or DVD then by all means do so. In the meantime check out the link below for some scenes from the movie. I also have a link lto Mark Lane’s film Rush to Judgement which shows actual interviews with Oswald and the Dallas police. I report you decide.

Pat Benatar in Concert

pat-benatar-3PatBenatarNeilGiraldopromo

220px-PatBenatarLiveinSydney2010

I’ve just returned from seeing rock n’ roll singer Pat Benatar in concert and she and her rocker  husband Neil “Spider” Giraldo  literally rocked the house. Pat has been around since the early 80’s and is known for such rocking hits as ‘Hit me With Your Best Shot”, “Love is a Battlefield”, “Invincible” and ‘We Belong.” At 59 years old she proves she still can rock with the best of them, even better. She looks much younger and sounds great. They also were the second act to have a video on MTV when it started and Neil was the first guitar player to appear on MTV

 Wednesday’s concert opened up with Pat and “Spider” as she calls him walking on stage side by side with him already playing. They are backed up by only two other musicians, a drummer and bass, but you’d swear there were more instruments. Neil’s guitar playing has so many notes flying out of it that it sounds like ten guitars are playing. I’ve seen hundreds of concerts, but I’ve never seen a band like this. I’ve seen bands with much more musicians than this that didn’t display half the energy and musicality of Neil’s guitar combined with Pat’s crisp, clear voice. Pat orginally was trained and started out in Opera before turning to rock. She and Neil have been together for 35 years and married for 32 on Feb. 2014. They have two grown daughters.

Pat was dressed in black leather pants and a black blazer while her husband was dressed in an open denim shirt and denim jeans with the cuffs rolled up. They had audience members standing on their feet jumping up and down with each number and rocking to the music as Pat sang her hits, “We Belong,” ” Love is a Battlefield” and others from various albums over the years. When Pat sang her hit song “Hit Me  With Your Best Shot” she had the audience singing the chorus while she stopped and the band would join in again as she picked up the song repeating the chorus with the audience again singing acapella.   She repeated this several times much to the delight of the audience.

 At one point Neil said they wanted to invite the audience into their living room and they told stories of how they met and various tours. At one point they did a question and answer part which I felt they could have done without as you couldn’t hear the questions and they had to have some members repeat the questions so they could hear them. I would rather they skipped this part and just stuck with their stories and music.

Neil took some time to explain about his guitar who he refers to as “she” because  it is shaped like a woman  as he pointed out and said he calls her “pain” because she can get real irritable and can change moods which he demonstrated with different chords. Pat looked at him with her hands on her hips and said “Is this going somewhere?”  much  to laughter from the audience to which Neil added, ”but she’s always right and I’m wrong.” 😀

Neil admitted he never went to school much and the reason he took up guitar was because he found that if you played guitar you could get any girl any time night or day. 😀

 One of Pat’s chief pet peeves is child abuse and she dedicated a song she did to all the children who have been abused called “Hell is for Children” and said she would keep singing it until no child is abused again.

The encore was a rocking and rolling jumping up and down one featuring Neil’s fantastic lightning fast fingers on guitar that had the audience  yelling for more and cheering wildly.

I have enclosed several videos and pics of Pat and Neil so you can see what they were like. 😉
