Chain of Fools

NOTICE-THIS IS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY TONGUE-IN-CHEEK BLOG.

Sometimes I just have to lighten up this serious ass blog shit. That is, of late, because I am so disturbed by what is happening, or not happening, in this country right now, that I go search for things that make me happy, or give me a smile, beyond my family. This song is one of them. And then while listening, I realized that we are at this time in our history dealing with...a chain of fools. Not the chain that Aretha was referring to, but a chain of fools nevertheless. If you don't believe it, you need to tune in. Meanwhile, this gets my old butt moving...Aretha...ARETHA, the woman.

Hoot, hoot, hoot...mofos!

Sometimes I too have to turn to music to appease my tired, bitter soul...

...especially when 33 percent of every pint is tax. 33 percent dammit!

Glad to see you found some relief from Detroit J. If anyone who has not been able to pay attention is listening would you please share the secret of ignorance is bliss with the rest of us?

Aretha has a voice like no one else. I've seen her a couple of times and she just rocks.

Her Royal Highness The Queen of Soul.

Jadedj, it is always good to renew the soul. Aretha can certainly help with that. Great song!

jadedj said...

Lou---glad you like it. Works everywhere, doesn't it?

Mo---no better here...as you may have guessed. We just drink more, and pretend we are better.

Punch---can't get NO respect. Or, was that satisfaction?

wm---there is ignorance, and there is ignorance. Learned ignorance: do not listen to the news...do not turn on the computer...if the computer is on, stay away from the web...do not blog...do not read blogs...turn up the R&B...drink a little merlot...no, a lot of merlot...do not engage the jackwad at the local convenience store where you get gas, in political discussion...discussion which consists of..."They ain't telling me what doctor I can go to...damned facist socialist Muslims!"...even though we know he, not the doctor, the clerk, has a hellofa QuikStop benefit package...being the lead clerk and all. And then, after blissing out with Aretha...get back on line and rant yur ferking ass off.

This is all that I know about bliss...albeit, JJ style.

Peach---Rocks my socks off. (I was going to say, I'd do her...but, this a family oriented blog...as you well know. OK, MY family CANNOT read this blog...and YOU know how that goes...har har).

Holte---Yes indeed . <-(see the hanging period? What does it mean?)

Kyle---Renew and cleanse. Not a bad song in the bunch...hers, that is.

Doug said...

Chin up, jj. Better days ahead.

Besides, chin down and you might start to drool...

Tom Harper said...

Nice to hear that song again. Thanks for the break.

jadedj said...

Doug---careful, we only live two states from Canada...we could end up drooling in your back yard, if things get bad enough here :-}

Tom---You're welcome.

Wine and Words said...

Aretha rocks it. Needed some animation today. I bopped over here from....I don't remember where...and now I'm all a shake and a shimmy in my chair. "Cha cha chain....." Damn fools!

jadedj said...

Mean---The Bowels of Hell? It would seem we are overflowing with foolz all about us. Have plenty, thank you :~

WandW---Hey, thanks for stopping by, and especial thanks for commenting! Glad you got it moving...damned fools nothwithstanding.
