Farewell, Merle Haggard, “Kern River Blues” says it all
Bakersfield, CA, 05-17-2016 Tuesday:  Those of us who live in Bakersfield, CA, had to say goodbye and farewell to a good friend recently, Merle Haggard, the ‘bad boy of Bakersfield.’  My husband and I were fortunate to see Merle at the Fox Theater last year in downtown Bakersfield and we could tell at the time that the old rover was not feeling well.  Still, he made major exertions to return from the private show so he could do the one for we fans who could not spring for the extra $100 apiece or whatever the cost was to attend the earlier gig. 
Like many around here, I grew up listening to Merle because his songs were on the country-and-western radio stations here such as the famous KUZZ as we did listening to Buck Owens, Red Simpson, and many, many others.  I heard other musicians call Bakersfield “Nashville West” as far back as I could recall, first hearing the Byrds play an instrumental by that name.  The song was a great one and you can find it on two of their albums, “Dr. Byrds and Mr. Hyde” and “Untitled.”  I also believe it is on some of their live concert albums released from the archives, what I am saying is that we are “Nashville West.” 
The final song by Merle, “Kern River Blues,” is a sad lament on a slow-moving country beat, one in which it seems to me at least that he knew his train was coming and that he would be having his ‘breakfast in the sky.’  We are so fortunate that we had the opportunity to see Merle that it is something I will always hold near and dear to my heart just as I do my kids and grandkids, I will always hold love in my heart for the great country singer. 
One of the things he mentions in “Kern River Blues” is the idea that politicians and greedy landowners have made devious deals to steal the water of our once magnificent river.  People far up past the Kern Canyon with property along the river have sold their water rights to that sinkhole, Los Angeles, CA.  L.A. is a dreadful city, they raped the Owens Valley and another valley farther north whose name escapes me, I think Mammoth or something else. 
Anyhow, L.A. is a horrible city and we have to find a way with which, to fight to get our water returned to us so we can have a swift flowing, deep river once again, one that moves luxuriously through our city and onward to the west.  We need it for local agriculture and livestock but the dirty scum on the other side of the Ridge now use it for their own devious purposes while attempting to send their biowaste over the mountain and dumping it here.   
Still, one would think that Governor Jerry Brown would set aside his bulls—t idea for his fancy, high-speed rail system that the Hyper Loop will soon make into a fossil.  Governor Brown has accomplished many things such as stuffing the state full of illegal aliens whom we have to feed, clothe, house, provide healthcare to, education, and some sustenance upon which, they can live—just as long as they vote Democrat. 
Bringing in millions of illegal aliens and giving them all of the above benefits as well as driver’s licenses at taxpayers’ cost, auto insurance, and a whole host of other freebies, well, you can imagine how it breaks the state.  What we need are not illegals who can now own businesses with which, to compete with American-run operations because just as the illegals took over landscaping and yard care, they will take over every other industry and occupation sometime in the near future, thanks to Governor Brown. 
If I were Jerry Brown, I would want people to remember that I LOVED the state.  I would want them to know that I worked hard to make their streets safe by deporting illegal aliens in county jails or handing them over to ICE for immediate deportation rather than allowing them to live without fear in sanctuary cities.  Wanting a governor who cares about California citizens and NOT the damned illegal aliens would be the way one would think any sane person would go but no, bringing in MORE and MORE illegal aliens is his number one priority.
Instead  of dumping the high speed rail system and sending water south through canals, rivers, and storing it behind newly built dams, he wants to build the train before he leaves office—I bet he has investments in it at every level, which one would think is a conflict of interests BUT NEVER FOR POLITICIANS!  I wish we could impeach Mr. Brown and send him back to his very own sanctuary city.
In the end, we will miss Merle Haggard and what he had to say and do for our very special community, one he bid farewell forever in “Kern River Blues.”  He might have been liberal in his viewpoints as many of us are but he also loved the county where he made his life. 
What is more he blamed the loss of our fabulous Kern River on ‘another politician’s lies,’ which is too damned true and why we need to find a way to retain and regain our water.   Otherwise, all of the fruits, vegetables, cotton, honey, nuts, meat, poultry, and numerous other things will disappear and a subpar equivalent will flow north across the Mexican frontier.  Do we want to live like this?  Hell no, we want our water back and we want to kick the damned Democrats out of office. 
Friends, that is going to do it for today, I hope you enjoyed the post and hey, if you have not yet given your ears an opportunity to hear “Kern River Blues” by Merle Haggard, well this is your chance, seek it out online, pick it up, download it, listen to it, and play it for everyone you know.  We should not lose our water to the Sodom of the south or the Gomorrah of the north—San Francisco.  We want our water back and we want it NOW!
Have a great day and I will see you all tomorrow, God willing—bye!  
Thank you!

MORE TO COME FROM THE ROLLING STONES




TUESDAY, MAY 17, 2016
In 1986, the next Rolling Stones studio album came out, one that many fans without a long history with the band criticize and pan.  “Dirty Work” is a product of ANGER and LOSS.  First, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were at war with one another while Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Ronnie Wood were caught in the middle.  Mick and Keith would not work together so the band recorded around the clock as either one would come in and add his parts and then bail.  The LOSS dealt with the sudden death of long-time tour manager, ‘sixth Stone,’ and lifelong friend, Ian StewartStu is the man who held the band together, the internal glue that if problems arose, and Stu would grab them by the bollocks and get them to do what they needed to do in order to keep the Stones rolling.  As for the songs, there are many that we like, especially the final three as well as “Harlem Shuffle.”  Sure, it sounds like Mick is angrier than hell when he sings but it adds to the mystique of the album, an album for which, they never toured in support.  Please, use our link and go to Amazon.com and pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that works for you and pay no attention whatsoever to any negative reviews.
