The King Of Carolina Beach Music Dies

He set a million feet shuffling on the dance floor with his "Carolina Girls" and countless others rocking to his R&B breakthrough anthem "Give Me Just a Little More Time."

General Johnson, Grammy-winning songwriter and gravelly tenor who led Chairmen of the Board, died this week after a long musical career that left his indelible footprint on the world of rhythm and blues and on that Carolinas mainstay, beach music.

"He told me at times the difference between beach music and a national hit is that a national hit will be out there five or six weeks and gone," said longtime friend Chris Beachley, who operates the oldies record shop Wax Museum on Monroe Road. "He said you write a 'Carolina Girls,' and it's there forever. He was the king of Carolina beach music."

Islamic Kids Cartoons Praised By Obama Draw Terse Warning

"With all due respect to President Obama and contrary to his opinion, the Muslim faith is known for its lies about Christians and Jews, lies about the Bible, lies about Jesus and His apostles, violence, warrior mentality, abuse of women, slavery, persecution of non-Muslims, and terrorism against peaceful civilians, from the alleged founder of the faith, Mohammed, down to the present day," Baehr's analysis said.

"This is where lawlessness leads us - to more lawlessness. Once you commit a lawless act against someone and are not punished for it you have invited them to retaliate with complete disregard for the law in their response. You are only required to deal ethically and morally with an ethical and moral entity across the table - one who ignores the law loses their right to demand that respect in return."
Our corrupt government at work.

New York’s Lincoln Center Partners With Castro’s Secret Police

"Wynton Marsalis and his Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (who in 2004 held a concert titled “Celebration of Human Rights and Social Justice”) spent all last week as grateful guests of a Stalinist/Apartheid regime that murdered more political prisoners in its first three years in power than Hitler’s murdered in its first six, that jailed political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin’s, and that came within a hair of nuking the Lincoln Center."

"The Only Good (Indian/Communist/Jew/Cat) Is A Dead One"

"Some people got offended by my dislike of live Commies. I suppose that the current Commies can claim substantial difference from their ideological forbears, same as Republicans would rather not be blamed for Lincoln and Democrats for FDR. In other words, there are bad Nazis and good Nazis, especially the those to whom we may be related. I suppose a person whose first priority is family and who joined the Communist party for purely pragmatic reasons isn't such a terrible creature.

OK. So wishing people dead on the basis of their political affiliations is bad?

Pinochet may have been a bad creature, but how many cheered at Allende's demise in 1973? And Allende wasn't even a mass murderer, only a brigand under the color of law. But we can definitely cheer the deaths of people like Trotsky, though by the time he was iced he was no longer in power. And I am sure the celebration of the eventual death of Mugabe would be wide-spread and sincere.

I am not in the position to go after authoritarian enemies, even those who spoil my own quality of life. But wishing the worst upon the leadership of hostile organizations, be they Comparty or NASDAP or any other their American imitations, is normal.

PS: Speaking of popular dead Commies: Chaushesku"

"The Government's 'Security Services"

"A report by Jeremy Scahill in The Nation (Blackwater’s Black Ops, 9/15/2010) revealed that the largest mercenary army in the world, Blackwater (now called Xe Services) clandestine intelligence services was sold to the multinational Monsanto. Blackwater was renamed in 2009 after becoming famous in the world with numerous reports of abuses in Iraq, including massacres of civilians. It remains the largest private contractor of the U.S. Department of State 'security services,' that practices state terrorism by giving the government the opportunity to deny it."
